Trailer ~ Why Did I Get Married Too

•February 1, 2010 • Leave a Comment

Tyler Perry is back with the second part of the film (I still haven’t seen) Why Did I Get Married.  Janet Jackson and Jill Scott also star.

This looks like a great film, Janet Jackson gets to really show off her talent, always good when a beautiful woman isn’t scared to look ugly!

Out April 2nd in the US – Would be nice to see this on the big screen  in the UK but I won’t hold my breath…

New Music ~ D’angelo – 1000 Deaths

Thank GOD!!! 

Maxwell came back last year and it looks like D’angelo is due to bless us this year if the rumours are to be believed.

This unmastered leak is a new direction for him but still sounds 1000 times better than the Rap/Grime/RnB/Pop crap we’ve been subjected to of late.

Inner London audience ‘not intelligent enough’ for Precious

•February 1, 2010 • Leave a Comment

Londoners will have to travel far and wide to catch Precious on the big screen as it has only been released at a handful of cinemas, mostly in central London.

The film has been released to massive reviews. Mo Nique has already picked up a few awards for her portrayal of ‘Mary’ the abusive mother and there are whispers that it is due to earn a slew of Academy Award Nominations, yet in The UK it has not been put on general release.

I enquired at Greenwich Imax why this is the case and was told:

“Our audience likes action, fast music and things that blow up, this movie is seen as a bit too ‘deep’ for the people that come here.   The only Odeon you can go to will be Covent Garden or Kensington, the type of people who live in those areas are the ones the bosses think are intelligent enough for this movie”

Nas & Damian Marley Album Pushed Back

•January 27, 2010 • Leave a Comment
“Distant Relatives”, the much anticipated album from Nas and Damian Marley has reportedly been pushed back.

 

After a few singles leaked online, the release date has been revised from March to April 20th. 

The first single will still be “As We Enter” despite the new leak “Strong Will Continue” being tipped as a tribute song for Haiti. There are rumours that this song will not appear on the album at all. 

New Music ~ Wiley ft Emeli Sande

•January 27, 2010 • Leave a Comment

Grandfather of Grime Wiley caused a Twitter storm on Sunday morning when he started tweefs (Twitter Beefs) with a selection of UK artists. 

Gracious K, DJ Silencer, and old nemesis Maxwell D were among the people who traded insults with him when they were all supposed to be in a church somewhere confessing their sins. (against music) 

Many others waded in with their own toxic air which resulted in granddad retreating back to his rocking chair with a bump – he even deleted his Twitter account.

Never fear, the most entertaining UK artist on Twitter did not leave for long, he was back online as from yesterday, all beefs seemed to be squashed… for now!  LOOOL

She did it again!!

 

Mo’Nique scooped the Supporting Actress gong at the SAG (Screen Actors Guild) awards, Saturday 23rd Jan in L.A.

Academy Awards Nominations are announced next Tuesday 2nd Feb, all eyes and ears will be listening out for her name – and the screaming which will follow – unless the Academy pulls one of its legendary upsets this year… 

Catching Up…

OMG I have been really lacking on the blogging recently.  Too much to do in the real world!

Drafted so many bits of news over the last few days but failed to execute them in a timely fashion.

So,  the next few posts are  just a catch-up of all the stuff I’ve missed out on for the last couple of days. 

Normal service will be resumed when i get a few hours to myself…
