Solange At The House Of Blues & New Interview+Other Celebs Out & About

Definitely a cute look on her.  She also just did an interview with Parlour magazine.  Here's a few snippets: On how she handles the comparisons to Beyonce... "At first I didn't want to make people uncomfortable in interviews, I didn't want to come off rude or arrogant. Now, I just really don't care." On how her upcoming album "Sol-Angel" is different from her 2003 debut Solo Star... "Then I just didn't know how to execute what I wanted. I was 15, and made a record with no identity. I was at a label [Sony] that didn't develop me, they just got all the big heads together and hoped to formulate a big song.  I started writing all these Sol-Angel records three years ago but no other artists wanted to cut them. It wasn't cool yet because it was before Amy Winehouse, Adele and Duffy. A few people asked, "why aren't you cutting those records yourself." Geffen gave me the opportunity to record, turn it in and sign when I was done. I thought for sure I'd do an indie record, where I am happiest, but the key and the challenge now is trying to work with label and get them to know me." On why she's not your average R&B artist... "I have never felt at home in one demographic. That's my struggle with management and my label, getting everyone to identify that just because I'm African-American, that doesn't mean that I'm an urban artist. I make music for people that have a sophisticated ear and are brave enough to support something non-traditional. People complain about the state of music, but there are alot of diverse and talented artists with people that support them. But their fans aren't the ones calling the radio station, they just want to see a good show. So I said, we should just do a tour and all of the artists that are going to be a part of it will have the same voice and stance on music. So, we, Janelle Monae, Chester French, the Knux and I, got all of our managers on the phone and started making a tour happen. It's in the very early stages, but we're trying to put something together."

Nelly's Still Bringing the Sean John Swexy+J-Hud Covers Upscale+The Obamas Cover Essence+Llyod's Album Release Party

Diddy has up a new vid with some behind the scenes footage of Nelly's swexy Sean John Underwear photoshoot. Nice. YBF chick Jennifer Hudson is looking fabulous on the October '08 cover of Upscale magazine.  Hot.   The Obamas are covering the September '08 issue of Essence magazine.  And here's a snippet from their feature story: Despite all that has changed for them publicly, the Obamas insist that little has changed in their private lives. Their friends are the same. And Fafily treats them the same, as at their last Thanksgiving. “Everybody came over to our house just like nobody was running for president,” Michelle says, laughing. And sometimes, the Obamas find ways to merge their two lives. At the end of the day in Butte, Montana, the family returned to the local Holiday Inn Express where they were staying, ordered dinner in from a local restaurant, ate cake, and cranked up birthday girl Malia’s favorite music: Beyoncé, the Jonas Brothers and Hannah Montana. “We just spent about two hours dancing and singing, rocking out,” Barack told the reporters on his campaign plane the next day. “Malia said it was the best birthday she’d ever had.” He pauses, then adds wistfully: “I don’t know if she was just telling us what we wanted to hear, but I can tell you from my perspective, it was one of the best times I have had in a long time.” Loves this family.  And the Oprah effect has been calculated (not too scientifically though) and apparently her support of Barack will give him over 1 million votes.   More ish when you read the rest...

Ne-Yo's New Promo Pics+Zoe Kravitz & Marlon Wayans Out & About

Check out Ne-Yo's brand new promo pics for his Year of the Gentleman album dropping Sept. 16th: And album cover.  I talks ish about Neyetta but I'm loving these pics...and the cd so far.  Hot.     Marlon Wayans was spotted leaving a medical building in Beverly Hills yesterday.  Apparently he was diagnosed with Sinusitis (um, ok) and had to rock this nasal strip while carrying his brown bagged medication to the car.  Awww poor Marlon.   And Zoe K. was spotted at the Elegy premiere in the NYC last night.  Something about this look seems thrown together...including the slapped on wig. More pics of Marlon Wayans and Zoe Kravitz when you read the rest...

YBF chicks were out and about last night around New York and Hollywood: Jurnee Smollett was spotted at the screening of screening of Elegy at the Tribeca Grand Screening Room.  I'm literally pissed off at this choice of she right now.  She has got to do better than this.   And over at the Holly NY screening at hearst Tower, Selita Ebanks showed off her semi-new haircut and Julissa made an appearance: So now that BET's "The Center" is defunct so she has no more hosting gigs and her engagement to NFL baller Larry Johnson has supposely been called off, what is this chick's purpose?  Just asking. UPDATE: Ok apparently she's on MTV now.  Yet, my question still remains.   More pics of these folks and others when you read the rest...
