New Music: Jordin Sparks and Whitney Houston’s “Celebrate”

Posted May 21, 2012 3:11 PM By Deirdre B Pride

 Whitney Houston‘s final song is a duet with Jordin Sparks called “Celebrate!”

The song is part of the Sparkle soundtrack and is an upbeat track reminiscent of the 1980′s Whitney Houston songsthat made her the icon she is today. Whitney’s lower-octave in the hook, set Jordin’s vocals on fiyah!!.

The film recently screened footage at CinemaCon, with a trailer released earlier this spring. It will be the first film in which Houston stars since 1996′s The Preacher’s Wife; she also executive produced the picture, which co-stars Omar Epps and Cee Lo Green.

Sneak Peek Whispers: LaLa’s Full Court Life – (2:10)

Posted May 21, 2012 12:21 PM By Deirdre B Pride

La grows frustrated with the fact that she hasn’t seen her man, Melo in 2 weeks. I can understand that. Not only is she missing family time, she has to miss the intimacy as well.  That sex toy for Skypers may do the trick.

After weeks of passing each other like ships in the night, a fed up La decides to blow off some steam in Miami.

The Supreme Court has refused to take up a Boston University student’s constitutional challenge to a $675,000 penalty for illegally downloading 30 songs and sharing them on the Internet.

The high court on Monday refused to hear an appeal from Joel Tenenbaum, of Providence, R.I., who was successfully sued by the Recording Industry Association of America for illegally sharing music on peer-to-peer networks. In 2009, a jury ordered Tenenbaum to pay $675,000, or $22,500 for each song he illegally downloaded and shared.

A federal judge called that unconstitutionally excessive, but the 1st U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Boston reinstated the penalty at the request of Sony BMG Music Entertainment, Warner Brothers Records Inc. and other record labels represented by the RIAA.

The judge will have a new opportunity to look at the case and could again order the penalty reduced, using different legal reasoning.

Chief Justice John Roberts and Justice Stephen Breyer did not participate in the high court’s consideration of the case.

Must See: A Weird Compilation of Ladies Footwear.  I came across this zany medley of ladies footwear.   Needless to say, I wouldn’t rock any of them.  Would you?  I came across this zany medley of ladies footwear. Some of these look like they were made for entertainment purposes only.  Needless to say, I wouldn’t rock any of them.  Well, would you?

This gives a whole new meaning to eff me pumps

I refuse to believe that Nike had anything to do with these

I guess you have to walk on your tippy toes with these.....I would assume these are Asian influenced.You think Rihanna would rock these?

Beef Whispers: Ray J. and Pat Houston Had Words at Billboard Awards Show

Posted May 21, 2012 10:06 AM By Deirdre B Pride

Ray J was almost physically removed from the Billboard Music Awards last night after angry members of Whitney Houston‘s family ordered their security to get him away from them … TMZ has learned.

Pat Houston‘s blood was boiling because she, Bobbi Kristina and other family members were seated next to Ray J, the person Pat believes was a very bad influence on Whitney.  Minutes before the tribute to Whitney, Pat asked her security to remove Ray J from his seat, but he refused to budge.

Our sources say … Pat’s security summoned hotel security, along with several uniformed officers to physically remove Ray J.  *This doesn’t even sound legal*

Just before push was about to come to shove, security warned Pat that things would likely get physical and it would almost certainly be caught on video, just as Whitney was about to be honored.  Sources say Pat then grudgingly recanted and Ray J kept his seat.

For his part, Ray J groused to friends, “Pat ruined what was a great opportunity to honor the woman who I loved.”

I’m not feeling this story at all.  How can the UNIFORMED OFFICERS (police?) and HOTEL SECURITY legally remove someone from their seat at an awards show.  What would warrant them to put hands on him if he wasn’t doing anything wrong.  Yeah, I’ma need a few more people. You can’t just tell me anything.  No disrespect, but show me some Pat Houston relevance while you are gathering up those people.
