HOPE FOR HAITI… NOW
Even though the telethon is over, the movement lives on.  Help is STILL needed by the earthquake victims of Haiti & HOPEFULLY w/ the soundtrack to the event in stores now, it’ll bring even more aid

WOTS… the “Hope For Haiti Now’ compilation is expected to be on top of the Billboard 200 chart by the end of this week

According to KN sources… the album has sold nearly 150,000

Artists who have contributed their voices include:  Justin TImberlake, Madonna, Taylor Swift, Rihanna, John Legend, Stevie Wonder, Mary J Blige, Christina Aguilera, Sting… and yes of course Jay Z

“Hope For Haiti Now”… in stores NOW!

WHITNEY TAKES ON THE WORLD
The rumors were true… Whitney Houston is goin on tour & she plans on seeing the world

Planning on stopping by Australia, Europe, the U.K., and Scandinavia, Whitney’s world tour kicks off in February in South Korea

Sorry guys… no dates have been announced for here in the U.S. (boooo!)

BUT, in case you are in Scandinavia (I dunno why you would be)… fans can purchase tickets online @ www.whitneyhouston.com

The singers special edition CD/DVD hit shelves this week… “Whitney Houston (The Deluxe Anniversary Collection)”  (GO GET IT!!!)

I MISSED LAURYN
MAN!!!  Ok so I’m late… Lauryn Hill was in New Zealand last week & apparently she hit the stage

SOOOO, if ur like me & didn’t see the video… ummm, here it is

ENJOY!!!

Also performing w/ Ms Hill were:  Sean Kingston, Shaggy, Julian Marley, Sly and Robbie, Sola Rosa and Katchafire…

Of course Wyclef was scheduled to perform, but he was helping out w/ the Hope For Haiti telethon

Here’s a clip of Sean Kingston…

PETA vs KANYE / AMBER ROSE
Hip Hop’s other royal couple, Kanye West & Amber Rose, has been under fire by the media after appearing @ Menswear Fashion Weel in Paris wearing nothing but FUR!

PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) has led the attacks

“Kanye can’t help making himself look like an idiot, whether at an award’s show or a fashion show. He and his girlfriend look like pathetic creatures from a shabby roadside zoo.”
– Dan Mathews, PETA VP

TAKE A LOOK…

What do you think?

BYE BYE SASHA!
In a recent interview w/ Allure magazine, Beyonce has revealed that she will no longer be calling on the help of her alter ego “Sasha Fierce”… both PHYSICALL & EMOTIONALLY

“Sasha Fierce is the fun, more sensual, more aggressive, more outspoken side and more glamorous side that comes out when I’m working and when I’m on the stage… The double album allows me to take more risks and really step out of myself, or shall I say, step more into myself, and reveal a side of me that people [who] only know me see.”
– Beyonce, Allure magazine

Hmmm… if you ask me, it sounds like someone might be a lil SCHIZO!!!
