What’s the News, B? – ‘Splits-ville,’ Mary’s London, Miley and More

Column “What’s the news, B?” picks out news that stands out during the week.

1) Amber Rose is divorcing Wiz Khalifa

While I’d love to say I’m surprised by this news, I’m not in the least bit. It just didn’t seem like it would last long to me.   As to the reason why – well, as with every celebrity split, there’s usually plenty of drama behind it.  According to Amber Rose, his royal ‘highness’ cheated… (Amber Rose files for divorce from rapper Wiz Khalifa, Amber Rose Accuses Wiz Khalifa of Cheating)

2) Mary J. Blige Is Dropping The London Sessions

Mary J. Blige is dropping a new album entitled The London Sessions. Anytime MJB drops a new album, I get giddy like a schoolgirl… well maybe that’s an overstatement. Anyways, the soul movement is truly alive in England, so it’s hard to imagine this album and its collaborations is anything short of fire. Single “Therapy” is currently available, while song “Whole Damn Year” finds Blige at her pained- best… wait that didn’t sound quite right… sorry Mary!

3) Miley Cyrus Is Who She Is… A Hot mess!

Will this girl ever quit! To quote Mary J. Blige, she’s been doing this for more than a “whole damn year!” Cyrus’ latest head shakable moment: a penis nose. A nose ring would’ve definitely been classier than Cyrus having a nether member on her nose. While I would love to justify this by saying Cyrus was just pretending to be Pinocchio, everybody NOSE that’s just not the case. Add this latest silliness to 10 Reasons Why Miley Cyrus Is A Hot Mess!. She can’t nor won’t stop – and I really, REALLY wish she would!

4) Phil Spector Is To’ Up (From the Flo’ Up!)

Aging happens to everybody, as they get older. No on escapes wrinkles… naturally that is. Well Phil Spector, the legendary producer known for his “wall of sound” approach, is looking incredibly rough to say the least. Sure, prison will do that to the best of ‘em, but for Spector who is in his 70s, well he’s not aging the least bit gracefully. (Phil Spector Aging, Bald in New Prison Photos). As I like to say, “to’ up from the flo’ up!”

5) PornHub Records…Sounds Sketchy

Anytime the word ‘porn’ is attached to anything, it seems sketchy and definitely NSFW. The big news from the incredibly ‘friendly’ website is apparently they are forming their own record label. Naturally, given the content gracing the adult site, one has to assume the musicians who might eventually release their music on the label would have to be on the ‘risqué’ side of things. PG-13 certainly wouldn’t cut it… (PornHub is starting its own record label, and it wants your ‘erotic folk’ songs). I’ve got jokes, but I won’t go there…
