Usher & Alicia Keys Performing AT All-Star Game+Solange Pops Off About Grammys+Rihanna Talks Exorcisms

Alicia Keys and Usher are hitting the tv stage again.  They have both been tapped, along with Shakira, to perform at this year's NBA All-Star game half time show. Alicia is performing “No One," “Empire State of Mind,” and “Try Sleeping With A Broken Heart." Usher will perform his new track “More” during the introductions of the 2010 NBA All-Stars. In addition, TNT filmed an exclusive music video with Usher for the single which began runing in Regal Cinemas this past Friday. He'll also be performing “Yeah.” More news from Solo and Rih Rih when you read the rest...

So Solange has some words for the folks talking about the Grammys. She's not feeling the fact that most people aren't recognizing the fact that her big sis broke a record that night (previously held by Lauryn Hill)--6 Grammys in one night. She Tweeted: Get ya Kanye on then Solo...

And Rihanna recently chatted with DJ JoJo Wright about seeing exorcisms in her childhood church. She said people would suddenly look different and have a different voice. "Someone would just get up screaming, spinning out of control. you can't control, it's like night and day.  It actually happened in a house." Whoa.

@ Camilla.. no, the only

@ Camilla.. no, the only extra grammy for that album is for Best Engineered Album, Non-Classical, in which she does not receive the award, but the engineers of the album do. The other two (Best Pop Vocal Album and Album of the Year) are included in her 5. Sorry, try again...

Nobody is hating on Beyonce. Her music is way overrated. She's a performer and has that edge over everyone but her content nothing to be wowed over. It's just not.

Ok, did some research...to clarify, Norah Jones personally won 5 awards, and her album "Come Away With Me" garnered 3 more awards the same night--8 total...The Grammy site is only for the current one for this year, and they only show video clips of previous years, but I posted links to confirm what I just said...

SMH LOL. Beyonce is the

SMH LOL. Beyonce is the bizness and no matter how many times people try to dismiss this woman she will continue to be the bizness. I can see how we women can hate on a woman who seemingly has it all but too many need to get over it. For those who say if she were walking down the street dressed in average clothes she would not be the bizness, you're wrong. She would still turn head after head after head. She is just naturally stunning from head to toe. Why be mad because she got it going on. If she were the woman in the office, the woman in your building, the woman on your block, the woman in your church, the woman in line at Starbucks, she would be hated by many women simply because she is what men desire. All men (except those who like bbw's lol). Even these lying as "I am so pro black, anti weave, anti makeup brothas". You're really just mad cause you aint her and/or you cant pull her. Bey is a bad chick. Deal with it.

IDK where you guys are

IDK where you guys are getting this Norah Jones info from, she didn't even win any Grammys in 2003. She won 5 in 2002 and 3 in 2004. You guys act like you can't just go to the Grammy site and search it... But the proof is in the pudding... http://www.grammy.com/blogs/beyonc%C3%A9s-golden-record (and search your fave's name if you have nothing else better to do, thanks)

I guess all the Stans are

I guess all the Stans are going to be cussing me out for me honest opinion that I am entitled too... Beyonce is not a singer, she is a performer... Please imagine her in normal clothing without all the costumes and ass and crotch to look at in a conservative outfit and listen to her voice because you won't have all the other flamboyant shit to look at and really listen to the voice and picture it without music.. Ask half the men what she sings and they cannot tell you, but they can tell you about her body. Listen to her old song Naughty Girl video, the girl screamed like a Hyena...Now don't get on me asking if I can sing, I didn't choose that as my profession, so moving along...5, 4, 3, 2, 1

Serious, I don't care who get mad, but honestly Beyonce cannot sing, she does not have a nice voice to listen too...her songs are OK, I would like to hear her sing without music, her performance at the grammys sucked..

Rihanna is laughing and

Rihanna is laughing and joking like it is funny because she is so far removed from it now. But, from this interview, if nothing else she does know that demons, spirits and, most importantly, GOD is real.

Please note that Beyonce has

Please note that Beyonce has won the most grammy's in one night by a female artist. The previous records was five in one night with Lauryn Hill, Alicia Keys and Beyonce tied with that one. Please people stop hating---any success by African Americans should be celebrated no matter WHO it is. ------ People hate on Beyonce so much why? Because the woman works her butt off? Makes great music and videos? Branches out her empire to try acting, a clothing line, perfume, acting, modeling, etc? Since when is it a crime to build an empire? ------ This is the reason why WE as African American's will never get where we should be we tear down our most successful African Americans looking for anything and everything to tear them apart. While their "other" fans celebrate them in every possible way. No, none of them are perfect. However, do we really have to demean them to the point that they are sometimes ashamed by our comments. ------ Think people...build each other up not tear down. We ALL have a talent or contribution and if we focus on our own dreams and goals and stop hating on everyone else's you would be amazed at what our race could accomplish.

Out of the six Grammys

Out of the six Grammys Beyonce won, only 4 really matters. The other two I never new categories existed for them. In one of the two ridiculous categories, she was competing against T-Pain and Jaime Fox. WTF? I would be insulted if I was in the same category as those two!

To: Beyonce CC:

To: Beyonce CC: Solange Congrats Bey on breaking the "Female R&B getting the most Grammy's in one night since Lauryn Hill" record! *sarcasm* It's not like you haven't ever won a single grammy before! You've actually won 5 in one night in the past. BIG effing whoop! You're so overly saturated in the industry, airwaves, magazines, etc. that I wake up each morning trying to scrub the beyonce off of me! I'm neither a beyonce hater or congratulater but for real Solange?!?! You're like the annoying little sister that cant go further then the front yard grass unless Beyonce let's you tag-a-long with her and her friends to the park! It's cool that you have your big sister's back, but don't hate on another artist b/c "White Hollywood" is biggin someone else up more! B/c I'm sure if the shoe was on the other foot you would STILL have a "Kanye fit" about it! Best Regards, Lets B. Real P.S. Solo, isn't a back to school night or something coming up that you should be more concerned with?

Pink's performance topped

Pink's performance topped everyone's that night! Beyonce should have done Single Ladiesin my opinion. But if truth be told, Jennifer Hudson could outsing all their asses on her worst day.

What Rihanna is describing is

What Rihanna is describing is called a Deliverance Service. I've seen it with my own eyes involving my own daughter. She talked in other voices, threw up, her face was contorted the whole shabang. A couple of days later the brand new sweater that she had on that night was pulled from the trunk of her car and was full of holes that looked like they had been burned in. Very eerie experience but that's what Jesus did. Cast them devils out! The person that performed the deliverance on my daughter was none other than Bishop Thomas Weeks who had a church here in Washington, DC. In spite of his personal problems, he is an awesome man of GOD. My daughter has been fine ever since.

Oh and another thing. Beyonce

Oh and another thing. Beyonce and Taylor are veeeeeeeery fortunate that they weren't in Whitney and Mariah and Celine and Toni time cause if they were then Beyonce and Taylor woulda left the grammys EMPTYHANDED!

Solange is way out of line

Solange is way out of line with the sarcasm and putiing stuff in "inverted commas" and sh*t. So juvenile. I am not a lover of either Beyonce or Taylor Swift. But if the media thinks its more noteworthy that Taylor Swift won Album of the year than Beyonce winning six grammys then thats the media perogative. Sh*t Solange! Grow up! If you think your sister is the ish then she is. But stay in your closet and rant and rave over your sister. Beyonce winning grammys is NOT news. She been on that stage sixteen times! Taylor Swift won AOTY on her first nomination! That's insane and THAT's why she's getting all taht hype. Good job Beyonce. Good job Taylor. Sit yo ass down Solange!!!

@ jovonna ...Lauryn Hill’s

@ jovonna ...Lauryn Hill’s record—u remember that artist right? The one who made good, quality music. Funny, the “I Am….” album will not be played 10 years from now but I know plenty of people (including myself) who still has the “The Miseducation…” on heavy rotation. EXACTLY! (and I am a Beyonce fan but Lauryn...no comparison)

You know its one thing to

You know its one thing to stand up for your sister, but its another to be an attention whore and that’s exactly what Solange is! Damn that bitch act like she won those fuckin awards. Beyonce won 6 grammys in one night, good for her! Now me personally, I don’t think she was nominated in the right categories; Single Ladies for Best Female R&B Performance…………………yeah fuckin right! As great as that song is, its not an R&B song, it’s a Pop song. If Lady GaGa or Britney Spears sang Single Ladies it would be in the Best Female Pop category. And her album wasn’t shit compared to Trey Songz:( Solange stop hating on Taylor Swift, your ass needs to be working on getting your name in one of those categories, instead of going to these award shows as your sister’s date. Hell, her own son went on stage to accept a grammy before you! Bey is not the first person to break a record and she wont be the last. Just b/c she won 6 grammys doesn’t mean she’s better than anyone, it just means the voters choose her over the other nominees. Grow the fuck up Solo. Beyonce, girl I love you, but go sit-down. Give us all a chance to miss you. Have your kids with Jay, divorce him, etc. girl just spend that money.

The Grammys are a joke for

The Grammys are a joke for the most part. Or it’s just the sad state of the music industry. In reality Beyonce’s album wouldn’t have been able to hang with Whitney, Celine, Mariah and Toni’s and Lauryns in the 90’s. Beyonce has like 16 Grammys while Whitney has 5, Celine has 5 and Toni has 6. You’re talking about 3 of the greatest singers EVER. But the difference is, Whitney, Celine and Toni had to go up against each other at the Grammys. These days they’re only pushing a few artist at a time. The only other artist that has been pushed like Beyonce is Alecia Keys. I stopped respecting the Grammys at the turn of the millennium. ________________________________ Forgot to add Mariah had to compete with Whitney, Celine and Toni too. And before the "Emancipation of MiMi" album,(which she won 3 Grammys for), Mariah had 5 Grammy's as well. 4 of the greatest singers and best selling female artist ever!
tagirl27's picture

Maybe Beyonce broke the

Maybe Beyonce broke the record for most Grammys won by a black woman. Lauryn won 5 in one night and Alecia tied that a few years ago. Nora Jones(who deserved every award for her album) won 8 in 2003.

It's hilarious that people

It's hilarious that people get mad about Solange stating her opinion and then in the same breath get mad because people don't want to hear their negative comments about Beyonce. If you don't like Beyonce, stop reading about her, stop listening to her music, stop watching her videos,and stop wasting your time ranting about how overrated she is. By the way, she may be overexposed...but she is not overrated. There is no one who can touch her vocally--I'm talking range, control, and ability to improvise.

i for one am a real beyonce

i for one am a real beyonce fan. and that's that, can't say there was any comp against. Taylor Swift gets mad airplay on contempo/rock/country/ radio stations. Beyonce consistant on about half of those markets. Taylor Swift is young tween pop sensation and Beyonce is knockn on 30's door. her formula's gotta change and she knows it. watch her sit down and hav a couple kids, come back and SING. She can't act, she's bout to be amongst the trail of mariah and janet and whitney(altho these divas hav acting abilities that sustain them)who drop albums and sing on stage. poor bey wants to be 'Barbabra Streisand' but lets face it, Beyonce ain't no Barbabra...anyway yall leave alone the only great performance on the Grammys was Pink's and noooobody talkn bout that. Big ups to Jamie Foxx 'Blame it' was off the chain.

First things first, the

First things first, the 'Grammy Guys'/Decision makers had one thing on their minds and that was Redemption. Redemption for what Kanye did to Taylor. I agree that what he did was ignorant but...I'm over it. White people? Not so much. Case in point, Beyonce' won 'Song' of the year but Taylor won...'Album' of the year. WTF? R U drunk? On to the upstaging....then Taylor goes on to beat out Carrie Underwood who can sing Taylor's behind under the table without even trying. R U guys serious? Whatever you're smoking...puff, puff, PASS because this ish is so not believable in the real world. What is believable is that you wanted everyone talkin' about Beyonce' BEFORE the event and Taylor after the event. Deuces mu---f-----!

And for Beyonce to have accomplished something so big like she did and not even be acknowledged for it, is a whole working of some next level politics.. hmm I don't need to say it but you know what it is. Whatever, I'm not even a Beyonce fan but this erks me to the bone.

Ego hot diva grew on me single ladies was hot once it grew on me video phone cool sweet dreams cool halo grew on me If I was a boy sucked because ciara already stated the same shit in a bette way. Don't get me wrong I like Beyonce but she is def overated.

Just my thoughts....was the

Just my thoughts....was the purpose of releasing the soundtrack to cadillac records a calculated move to be considered for two albums and increase the chances of winning moree grammies. not that it makes a difference, but the total number of grammies won that night (6) was for 2 albums, not one. not sure but i would guess all the other past artist won based on one album. so lets not compare apples to oranges. give credit where credit is due. how many other artist release multiple albums in one grammy year. how many other artist re-release albums to increase sales. most sincere artist accept their record sales and release one album during a grammy year. they love music and perform from their heart. they are not sore losers. they don't pout and fly home. they participate in a historical event - the remaking of we are the world and contribute to a charitable cause because it is the right thing to do.
