HOT 97 Peter Rosenberg Speaks on Nicki Minaj/Summer Jam

Let’s face it, Flex didn’t give Nicki the tongue-lashing he should have, or at least hyped up at Summer Jam. One of the real problems with the interview was Peter Rosenberg, the person who made the comment, wasn’t in on the call.

Well he spoke to TMZ earlier and his explanation shows why he should’ve been.

“When I went out there I wasn’t really thinking about it. I was trying to hype up all of the fans who were there to see Kendrick Lamar, School Boy Q and more underground acts, and yeah, that short of just came out. “

Here’s the actual footage.

Trina’s New Single “Outer Space” +  Mohawk on Styled by June

You know what happens when you grow up? You look at pictures from your past and ask, “what was I wearing?” Trina is in that stage of her life and career; when her younger self doesn’t exactly represent her anymore. So with a new album on the way, she called superstar stylist June Ambrose for a makeover. The results were revealed on the second episode of VH1’s Styled by June.

Trina and June Ambrose giving their thighs a stiletto workout

June’s first piece of advice? Give those thighs a stiletto workout. June then shocked her with a new doo suggestion: a Mohawk down to her butt. Trina was understandably uneasy, but the motto with stylists is, “in your hands I trust” - otherwise, why be there?

Brandy and Teairra Mari @ Lara Manoukian’s Sinlesslife Launch Party

On Sunday, Oct. 9, fashion designer Lara Manoukian hosted a launch party at the Falcon Restaurant in Hollywood, California, to preview her new jewelry collection. Lara Manoukian conceived the line while on a trip to Madrid Spain, in June 2008. That was three years ago, so it gave her plenty of time to flesh out the meaning behind Sinless; it’s deeper than you might think.

Lil Kim @ M2 Mansion: Going Hard in 2010?

Last night, the Queen Bee, Lil Kim took the stage at M2 Mansion in NYC, which attracted a cast of characters and adoring fans that know and love her from the indelible Bad Boy era. It has to be nice to still have name recognition in the industry — Lil Kim was a big hit on Dancing with the Stars — but for her actual music career to be on a flat line? That’s something else. Her last album The Naked Truth was released nearly five years ago. Wiki word is in 2009 Kim was working with the Trackmasters (Poke and Tone), but the project crumbled over creative differences.

Alicia Keys “The Element of Freedom” Party: Meet the Ex-One

On December 18, Alicia Keys was on hand at M2 Mansion in NYC for a release party for her stellar new album “The Element of Freedom.” If you don’t have it yet, you need to get off your computer and beat a path to Target/Walmart/Best Buy or pop a tab, click up an online shop and fill a shopping cart. Point is: forget the freebies, good music deserves better dollars (especially these days) and Alicia Keys cooked up something phenomenal for these cold winter months.

On a completely non-musical angle I can tell you listening to the album I wasn’t sure if Alicia Keys and Swizz Beatz were still making their lo-pro relationship happen. Oh sure, throughout the album there is the sound and feel of a woman smiling in the glow of a new love, but who that love is I felt was up for question.
