After not getting nominated for not one Grammy award this year, singer Justin Bieber is left feeling a little slighted. Instead of gracing the award show any way, Bieber has decided to skip it this year and put on his own show via video stream.
With so many fans world-wide, many are wondering if Bieber’s video stream will hurt the award shows viewership tonight. The stream is scheduled during the same time the award show airs on CBS and will feature new music and a Q&A session. I’m not sure how Bieber fans can deny such an event.
Will CBS suffer tonight? It’s hard to say but I am sure the Grammy Show got Bieber’s hint and we will see the young star next year.
We haven’t heard many lyrics from rapper Lil Mama lately but we will see her on TV in the near future. No, I am not talking America’s Best Dance Crew but a TLC biopic.
23 year-old Naitia ‘Lil Mama’ Kirkland, has officially been cast as Lisa ‘Left Eye’ Lopes, the fallen member of the legendary R&B girl group TLC in a VH1 biopic. The biopic is currently in pre-production but there is no release date as of yet.
Rap legend MC Lyte couldn’t keep the secret in and spoke with reporters about the film while on the red carpet for the VIBE Impact Awards. “I don’t know if I’m supposed to say, but I will,” she said to reporters. “She just got the role of Left Eye in TLC’s new movie.” MC Lyte also revealed that her and the young rapper are working on an upcoming female rappers’ collaboration record.
Looks like 2013 will be a big year for Lil Mama!
Nominated for a Grammy award tonight, Melanie Fiona’s “Wrong Side of a Love Song” called on actor Larenz Tate to direct the highly anticipated music video. A fan-favorite from her sophomore album The MF Life, the video gave Melanie the chance to try her hand at acting and I am sure her talented director had a lot to do with that. Check out behind-the-scenes footage below.
While she isn’t performing, attending award shows and shooting videos, Melanie Fiona is working on her third album which is expected to be her strongest body of work according to recent interviews.
The Hollywood Reporter confirmed Wendy Williams and her husband/ manager Kevin Hunter have launched their very own Production company. Wendy Williams Productions is set to produce reality, game and talk shows for cable and broadcast channels.
“This is a dream come true,” Williams said. “Kevin and I have been kicking around so many ideas and are excited to be able to now bring them to life with our own production shingle. As anyone who watches my show knows, I am a huge fan of all reality and game shows, and I know a thing or two about talk. Lisa has spent a career creating and producing the kind of television shows I love, and we are thrilled to have her guide our development efforts. We don’t plan on wasting much time, so stay tuned for some must-see programming ahead.” [SOURCE: The Hollywood Reporter]
