Meagan Good & Idris Elba Out & About+Ciara Is Billboard's Woman Of The Year+Jon B. Goes At Robin Thicke

Meagan Good and Idris Elba both hit up Area nightclub in LA last night: Meagan actually rocked a cute laid back look and threw on some heels to dress it up a bit.  Honestly I don't know many people who could get away with this look at the club. And Idris Elba was there as well.  Looking like your older uncle who has no business being be there.  But I still loves me some Idris. Ciara is set to receive the Billboard Woman Of The Year Award October 24th at their annual breakfast. Billboard will also honor the top 20 female executives in the music industry during this 3rd annual Women in Music breakfast at the St. Regis Hotel in New York City. Congrats to CiCi. Details on the Jon B vs. Robin Thicke drama when you read the rest... Jon B. has clapped at Robin Thicke once again in a new interview with Allhiphop.com.  He basically says Robin owes him for paving the way for R&B white boys, and he challenges him to a piano and vocal face off. Here's a couple interesting quotes:
"I’ve never been on the cover of VIBE, but I don’t think that that is a good thing to really point out. It’s like damn, who are you to say that you deserve the cover? That’s kind of pompous to me. Just fall back and do what you do and don’t complain. You’ve been blessed." - Jon B on Robin Thicke's complaint for not making the VIBE cover.
"Listen man, you have your career and I have mine. If it came down to a battle situation, where we were piano to piano, vocals to vocals, and he really wanted to test skills on some wild competitive type of stuff we could make it happen." - Jon B on a battle with Thicke.
"I paved the way for a lot of white artists now that don’t have to deal with the stigma of being a white artist. I don’t think that people would be as open for non-African American artists like that if it I didn’t take a lot of the slack for them." - Jon B on originally holding it down for white Soul artists.
Bring on the R&B white boy beef.

WTF? What did CiCi do to earn woman of the year? I probably shouldve been Rihanna (Sigh) or jazmine Sullivan, or even Leona Lewis' wack ass! Yall know that beleeding Love ish is the number one record in the world ????????????

Ok... I think folks are

Ok... I think folks are really selling Jon B short.... the man not only penned hits for himself, he also penned hits for other artists way before there was any mention of Robin Thicke... not taking anything way from Robin Thicke.. but lets just be real he is the WHITE flavor of the moment and this too shall pass I think intially the whole point he was trying to make was that .... why whine that you are not or have not been invited to be on the cover...as if you are entitled....So what Vibe didnt put you on the cover. As far as the beef ...thing I think we have all learned where beefing on wax gets you

Jon B wasn't the one who

Jon B wasn't the one who paved the way for white artists. Elton John was one of the first in the 70s to have the number one album on the R and B charts. What about Michael McDonald, Rod Stewart, Tina Marie..Calm down Jon B!!

...Oh yeah, and I smell a

...Oh yeah, and I smell a Promo Rat...I'm sure Jon's new single/CD is dropping soon, that's why he's trying to drum up publicity. What he fails to realize is that it takes more than even just being recognized in the R&B/Hip-Hop community, you've gotta be contributing to the industry on broader scale all the while being you. You would think he would try and join forces with him show that white boys can have soul too, but naw he'd rather hate on some unfounded ish. The whole thing is tacky and disappointing. Even if he considers himself a veteran, he shouldn't be resorting to cheap shots. Jill Scott said, and applies yo the dudes as well, "Queens(Kings) shouldn't swing, if you know what I mean".

I love Jon B's Music, but he

I love Jon B's Music, but he needs to shut the hell up! Robin has been in the music scene just as long as him, if not longer....just not in the forefront as he is now. I think Jon B needs to check Robin's resume, he's been writing Hits for some of the hottest R&B stars for 15 years, including Monica(1st album in 1995), Usher, Christina Aguilera, Mya, Brandy, Michael Jackson and Marc Anthony. Um...who else has Jon been writing for? In regards to Robin wanting to be on the cover Vibe, who wouldn't want to be? Let alone white R&B/Pop artists in general. Jon B can't say that he probably hasn't felt that he should be on the cover of Vibe either. He didn't go after Justin Timberfake, but he thought that Robin would be an easy target? Lame Jon, really lame. How about a couple more classics before you run your yap so tough.

Can we all say it

Can we all say it together...Biiiiiittter! Jon B is just mad that Robin Thicke is the top white boy in R&B right now (next to Justin Timberlake, that is). I will most certainly not discredit Jon B. The man is talented. But so is Robin Thicke. Not to mention, no one is thinking about Jon B now, especially not Robin Thicke. He's so 10 years ago. If he's all that, he should come out with something. Until then, sit and let Robin live.

Jon B did not pave the way

Jon B did not pave the way for white R&B artist. He must have forgotten about KC and the Sunshine Band, Taylor Dane, Tina Marie, Rob Neville, Hall and Oats, Phil Colins just to name a few. Plus, it seems he forgot he infamous comments in Vibe magazine referring to dark skin women as 'ghetto' and only chosing multi racial or black women of a lighter complexion in his videos. Liars have no memory

Jon B is not an originator.

Jon B is not an originator. Hall & Oates, Average White Band, he Bee Gees, Simply Redd, Phil Collins, Color Me Badd, New Kids on the Block, Michael McDonald, Michael Bolton, George Michael, hell even Elton John and Elvis Presley did it bigger, better, and longer than he did. Jon B can go to has been hell for that.

Robin was misquoted in one

Robin was misquoted in one article. It isn't like he sent out a press release claiming racism on Vibe. He has cleared up his statement many times over, saying it was a long conversation about racism, his song "Dream World," and how he asked his friends that not Vibe. I spoke to him personally about it and he was truly sincere, thoughtful, just a really nice person. He's direct and when I brought up Vibe, he cleared that statement up with the quickness emphasizing how great Vibe has been to him. He doesn't feel like he is entitled to anything. He knows he has a long way to go to get covers, in his words it was "accomplishment discrimination" i.e. he haven't sold enough to earn that spot.

Jon B needs to get his music

Jon B needs to get his music history correct. There are plenty of "Blue-eyed" soul singers (a term I don't like, but it helps to get to the point) that have been around and layed the ground for the newly successful White soul and R & B singers. Can Jon B say, Daryl Hall & John Oats (who first got put on by Black radio in the 70s; Frankie Crocker, RIP) Michael "Takin' It To The Streets" McDonald, Average "Funkin Sh!t Up" White Band, Bobby Caldwell, The Rascals. Let's not forget the Ladies. Teena Marie, Annie Lenox, Janis Joplin, Dusty Springfield. You weren't the only "White-ty" out here who could "dance and sing Black". And these are not obscure artists. They have critical acclaim, monetary success, and the respect from their Black & White peers and younger artists. Respect is something that is earned not something you whine and belittle your way into getting on a blog.

Jon B needs to SAT DOWN with

Jon B needs to SAT DOWN with all that, because I'm sure Michael McDonald and Michael Bolton would say they started the modern day blue eyed soul movement! I don't see either of them challenging each other to a damn battle! They both did their thing and were VERY successful! So Jon B gets a WOMP WOMP from me! Fool SAT YO AZZ down at your piano and make some damn hits! Robin ain't got to do shit, he got hits! Bitter ass!! LOL!

I won't waste time commenting

I won't waste time commenting on Jon B. He's that irrelevant. I just wanted to post something cuz I'm bored. However, I am a Robin Thicke stan and a hater of all things Vibe since they lost all their self respect. When The Source is more respectful of our people, something is definitely wrong with you as a publication.

It annoys me when everyone claims they "paved the way" for other people. If you were truly genuine and as great as you claim to be, you wouldn't have to overly state it, it would be obvious and respected. Seems to me someone's just jealous and needs a time-out.

even tho jon b seems a little bitter, i have to agree with everything he said...robin thicke has absolutely no right demanding or complaining for not getting to be on the cover of vibe...he really hasn't sold that many records and, besides, there are people way more deserving who never got on the cover of vibe...and plus, he should be thankful that he is accepted as a white r&b singer ps: if it wasn't for jon b, there would be no justing and for damn sure no robin thicke

Since win did Jon B become

Since win did Jon B become the original white boy of soul? Correct me if I'm wrong but Hall and Oates (showing my age) and the Bee Gee's did soul music not to mention the Robin Thicke was out WAY before Jon B. Robin's career just didn't immediately jump off like Jon's did with the help of sounding like Babyface Jr. Don't get me wrong, I like Jon B. but please stop the hating on Robin Thicke. Piano battles are not what's up dude. Use your CD to become relevant again or go kill yourself dude.

OMG Moka, I totally agree

OMG Moka, I totally agree with you! Seriously, why can't these artistes just get along? I don't care about what they have to say, all that should matter is the music. Jon B I love you, but no offense where you been? Bitter much? I agree, what Robin had to say about the whole VIBE cover thing was a bit eh, but essentially what he wanted to say was the difficulty in getting recognition, in a black or white industry. You know, I'm sick of all this drama. Just go and do what you do best, sing and write play the piano stop harping about being white or black or being the first in the game or being on a cover I don't care. Just shut up and put out the music, thank you.
