MUSIC FAB: Beyoncé WORKING On 5th Album?! + ALL Mathew Knowles' Artists Have Been BANNED From Radio One!

Rumor has it that Beyonce is already in the studio working on album number five!  Get the deets inside and find out about Mathew Knowles' artists getting banned from Radio One by owner Cathy Hughes.

Does she ever slow down?  Apparently not since not even pregnancy has stopped Queen Bey from starting her fifth album.

The Dream, who wrote her mega hit "Single Ladies" and a few of the tracks on her 4 album, recently revealed that the two are re-teaming for her next project.

 "She's ready to work,  She's crazy! She never stops doing anything. I don't know if [pregnancy] is going to slow her down. She's just incredible with doing things, I don't know how she's going to do it, she's just a maniac... in a good way."

Good luck on the next project Bey!  I'm sure the baby will inspire some great tracks.

SIDEBAR: We all want Beyonce to be "great" but don't we also want her to take some time off and enjoy motherhood? She has accomplished way too much for homegirl to slip our minds. But do you boo!

 

And in other Knowles news....

We told you earlier that Beyonce was no longer working with Mathew Knowles.  Now Cathy Hughes and her radio/tv empire have turned their backs as well.

Cathy Hughes’ cable channel TV One is suing the BET Network, MTV and Music World Music for violating its exclusive rights to the Essence Music Festival. Mathew Knowles' Music World Music is in the mix because his company brokered the deal for the Essence Music Festival broadcast with TV One.

But now, Mathew is being accused of re-issuing the content BET, MTV and BET’s Centric Network despite TV One’s four-year exclusivity agreement. Messy......

So in response, Radio One has pulled all of Knowles’ Music World songs and artists from their radio stations nationwide.

“All Radio One personnel were told to pull all Music World artists out of rotation immediately and indefinitely! We were told that the mandate came straight from Ms. Hughes and that there would be ramifications for anyone playing or mentioning a Music World artist or song on air,” said one Radio One employee.

Damn!

And this could hurt Mathew because his company primarily focuses on gospel music as the employee added,

“Radio One owns at least 12 gospel stations across the country – that’s the majority. It’s hard for artists to sell CD’s without radio airplay! Right now Music World definitely isn’t getting any from Radio One.  Le’Andria Johnson’s song ‘Jesus” was in heavy rotation on Radio One stations one day and the next day she wasn’t getting any spins. New music by Trin-I-tee 5:7 and Micah Stampley, as well as recurring hits by Brian Courtney Wilson have been pulled as well.”

Things done in the dark....

It's funny that most people

It's funny that most people compare B to the "greats" of the past like Whitney and Mariah. The sad part is that those greats are IN THE PAST. No one compares Lady Gaga or Riri to Whitney because when it comes to them everyone understands that they are different. I appreciate B because she is B, she can nevever be a Whitney or a Mariah (and I'm sure she doesn't want to be). It is also funny that in the days of your "greats" they were also told that they could never be like Aretha or Anita and yet here they are today. I love B, I love her voice, music, videos, booty shaking, pregnancy, husband, values, work ethic, smile, hair and everthing else that haters out there hate her for. PROUD STAN!!!!

Those greats are in the past

Those greats are in the past and present. There's a reason why there's comparison because a lot of music now is simply GARBAGE, few exception. Artists now are just mediocre but people don't know what real music is about, so it's hard to differentiate. Lady gaga and riri are nothing close to Whitney. Bey is more talented than both.

Cathy Hughes should be a little more careful about what she bans from her radio stations. Sure she has the right to do what she wants to, but how many of us actually listen to her radio network and watch her television network? If she was that powerful she wouldn't need COMCAST for distribution.

I respect her hard work. When

I respect her hard work. When I listen to the old whitney houston, Sade, michael Jackson, Tina Turner, old Mariah carey, I want more. Oh, yeah sometimes Alicia Keys. It's not always about their voice but there's something about their music that I can always go back to. I love Bey but she hasn't done that for me yet. She comes out with songs that are upbeat, i listened to them at the moment but don't see myself going back. Her slow songs don't do it for me either. I want her to do a classic song like falling of Alicia keys. Hopefully, this album will be good. Not to knock Bey's hustle out, her songs are mediocre. Good thing, she has her looks, her image working for her.

I honestly believe that

I honestly believe that Beyonce is carrying her baby. I know alot of folks believe that she is faking her pregnancy but I refused to believe this until there is valid proof. I also don't have a problem with Beyonce working right after giving birth. However, stans need to fall back on Beyonce being an icon! Whitney Houston and Michael Jackson are icons. Beyonce's music is mediocre at best. Back in the day, Whitney took music to another level where you got goose bumps hearing her songs. Her version of the National Anthem gave you goose bumps. Who does that? Michael Jackson could dance, sing, write, produce his songs and make videos that other artists are still copying up to this day. His 50 concerts at the O2 Arena in London were sold out in minutes. Who does that? Beyonce restorts to not wearing underwear on stage and bootyshaking to every song. There are so many nasty coochie shots of Beyonce on the internet it ain't funny. You see the baby hole, hairs, lips and all. On top of that, she's always claiming she wrote songs to seem more accomplished despite the fact that more than one writer & producer has publicly stated that she doesn't write JACK and she has been sued for trying to change up lyrics to other artist's songs just to get her writing credits! She gets writing credits for every song on her albums because Papa Knowles negotiated that since her Destiny's Child days. Also, she can't act to save her life. Most of her movies are pure comedy yes even Cadillac Records. You laugh at the foolywang that is Beyonce's acting. Finally, instead of announcing her pregnancy to her crazy stans who paid to see her 4 concerts, she basically dis her crazy stans and two weeks later announce her pregnancy on the VMAS just for publicity to sell her awful album. All the while claiming to be a private person.

What I'm trying to figure out

What I'm trying to figure out is.. why do so many people care what she does with her career and her baby? Beyonce is a big name and people are always in behind her I don't think she is one of these celebrities that calls the paps forattetnion. Second she is a musician and artist. To tell someone who does that for a living to sit down and do nothing is absurd. If she is healthy enough which I feel that she is to continue to work while pregnant after giving birth why should anyone criticize her work ethic. maybe that is why she is who she is. Trust me I'm pregnant now with my first baby and I wish I had the motivation to keep going like she is. Being pregnant is no fun especially when you get super sick all the time. Not to try to compare artist but didn't Rihanna release like um a 6th album in what 6 years? Beyonce has been out for 10 and it's only her 5th. 2003, 2006, 2008, & 2011. I think that's a good amount of breaks. It just looks likes shes constantly busy because of tour. She releases and album the the next year tours. I personally believe she wants to get an album out the way for the baby so she can tour and work on her movie. I mean she is blessed enough to have her child on the road with a full nursery. It's not like her baby will be at home with an random employee. Trust me if some of you mothers had the luxary to have a nanny you'll have one. I know I would. If you don't like what she is doing, don't bother supporting her music or commenting. Some people can be cruel and mean for no reason and you don't even know them. I am a musician and I constantly work on music. I just released music and I'm 5 months pregnant. I sing in a band on the regular, teach dance classes, and perform at shows. Honestly working is the only thing that keeps me from being dog sick all the time. So I said from one expecting mother to anther do yo thing Bey. Fuck the haters even thought I know you don't care. That goes for any artist out here trying to do their thing. You never know she may be under contract to produce so many records etc.... jus sayin

I am not a Beyonce fan but I

I am not a Beyonce fan but I am not a hater either. I really do think she should sit down for a minute. I don't care how much all you stans love her but she really is like someone said NARCISSISTIC and her hubby is the same way. They think they are more than what they really are. They put themselves on a pedalstal. I love people w/ stronge powerhouse voices like: Whitney Houton, Mariah Carey, Christina Aguilera and Leona Lewis. Vocally she can't hold a candle to any of these people. I have never bought a Beyonce Album and Never will. I am sorry but the old back in the day Whitney Houston and Mariah Carey were bigger than she will ever be. Her parents put her on such a pedalstal starting as a child that she does not even know how to just stop working and take a much needed break for a while. Maybe if they had put more attention on that sister of her's she would not be such a hating reject she would not have gotten pregger's so early just to get her mom and dads attention. Solange could actually act a lot better than her sister could. In some of the gigs she got she was actally a natural at acting. At the time Jessica Simpson's dad helped at the time "THE NOT SO CUTE SISTER" ASHLEY SIMPSON W/ ACTING JOBS AND A SINGING CAREER. IF MATTHEW AND TINA KNOWLES WOULD HAVE GIVEN SOME OF THEIR ATTENTION TO SOLANGE. BEYONCE WOULD KNOW HOW NOT TO JUST EXPECT SO MUCH ATTENTION ALL THE TIME. THE FAULT IS CLEARLY MAT AND TINA KNOWLES FOR NOT TEACHING HER AS A CHILD ABOUT HUMILITY AND THAT IN THE REAL WORLD YOU CAN NOT ALWAYS BE #1. BEYONCE WOULD BE A LOT BETTER OFF if they had taught her that. The whole family is motivated by greed. I think she would go INSANE without the attention from the media. It's her DRUG it's her ADDICTION. When the curtains do finally draw for her Beyonce will not be able to handle it she might have to be commited in an Insane Asylum. This is for real people. That's what I loved about MJ so much. He was more humble and more talented than Bey will ever be. Mark my words she will not be able to handle when her time is up. ROMANS 12:3 NOT TO THINK OF HIMSELF MORE HIGHLY THAN HE OUGHT TO THINK. Sorry people I am just stating facts. WHAT GOES UP MOST CERTAINLY MUST COME DOWN! UNFORTUNATELY HER PARENTS NEVER TAUGHT HER HUMILITY BUT HOW COULD THEY WHEN BOTH OF THEM NEVER HAD IT THEMSELVES! ON ANOTHER NOTE PRETTY FACE BUT HATE THE JOAN CRAWFORD MOMMY DEAREST EYEBROWS IN THE PIC ABOVE! NOTE A FAN BUT NOT A HATER EITHER,

people suggesting Beyonce

people suggesting Beyonce should chill out and just be content having a baby and not make music are getting real annoying. making music is this woman's job, which she appears to enjoy and be very successful at. if the average woman is still able to carry, birth and care for a child while maintaining a career, why shouldn't Bey do the same? while i'm sure she doesn't need the money, she enjoys what she does and wants to continue to work and entertain. if you're sick of her and think she should take a break, then maybe you should stop listening to her music, reading articles about her, and commenting. lifetime entertainers like mj (God rest his soul), prince, stevie wonder, mary j. and scores of others have been putting out music and touring all their lives, if not for significant portions of their lives. i don't hear people telling those entertainers to take a break. haters kill me.

Beyonce is not afraid that

Beyonce is not afraid that she won't be relevant anymore. Hello, this is the same artist that sold out a concert in 22 seconds! No other female artist in the game today is at her level, point blank period, so who is going to steal her shine? Nobody. Beyonce just loves what she does. She's a workaholic. Some people are just like that...they have to always be busy, always be moving, doing something. I'm sure motherhood will make her re-prioritize. Baby's do that. But until that baby comes Bey is just gonna work work work.
