Holiday Fab

It's the Fourth of July and how are your fave celebs (and myself) spending the Holiday weekend? In New Orleans at the Essence Music Festival. The 3 day concert event kicks off tonight at the Superdome and this year's performances include Jill Scott, Mary J. Blige, Chris Brown, LL Cool J, Kanye West, and Morris Day and The Time as well as Maze featuring Frankie Beverly.

Concert Fab

All kinds of folks performed at concerts this weekend:

T-Pain was the headliner of the Hot 97 concert in the NYC and he made an announcement in the middle if his performance saying he wants other artist to stop trying to sound like him. *cough* Kanye and Weezy *cough* He said he has 37 songs on the radio right now and that he wants people to quit swagger jacking and using the same effect he uses on his songs. Tell em why you mad T-Pain. But I do want him to understand that he wasn't the originator of this voco (voice recorder) ish either. Let's keep it 100. Ashanti also performed:

And Keyshia held it down at the South Florida Summerfest concert in Sunrise, Florida this weekend.

Lots more pics from the concerts when you read the rest.

Music Fab: Jay-Z, Michelle Williams, Day 26 & T.I.

Jay-Z made history this weekend by being the first hip hop act to ever headline at the esteemed Glastonbury Festival in the UK...even after it was said Glastonbury would never allow something like hip hop to infiltrate its ranks.  He got rave reviews for the show, and you can check ot the entire set by clicking the pic above.  Nice. And look what Weezy started with the rappers and those guitars they don't play. (Yes, I am well aware he was just making a statement in response to Gallagher's of Oasis and others' statements about how hip hop not shouldn't be "allowed" at Glastonbury. It's called sarcasm peoples. And it's been happening on this site for 3 years now. Learn it, live it, love it. It's just really not that serious. Damn.) Anyways, his main chick Beyonce was spotted in the crowd cheering on her hubby:

Cute. Lupe Fiasco and Estelle also performed. More music when you read the rest...

Danity Kane Gets Into A Backstage Catfight!?

 The Making The Band 4 Tour made a stop last night in Vegas at The Pearl.  And a fight went down backstage between 2 of the female performers.   While Cheri Dennis was also a performer, sources say the fight happened between members of "the group".  That means nobody but Danity Kane.  After more than 15 minutes passed the original starting time, photog sources on the scene report that a producer stated in a low key manner that one of the performers was freaking out backstage and did not want to perform. Apparently a fight had broken out between a couple of the performers requiring security guards to step in to separate the girls. About twenty minutes late, Danity Kane took the stage with no apparent sign of the backstage struggle.  Sounds like it's not all kosher in the Dollhouse.   I just want to know which two it was because my money's on D. Woods to win that ish regardless.  I wouldn't be surprised if she had to pimp slap Aubrey out of her Aubrella land. Hopefully we'll find out when MTB 5 starts up.  Y'all know Diddy loves to showcase the bitchassness. A couple more pics of Danity Kane's performance when you read the rest...
