Brandy is back with the video for “Put it Down”, her collaboration with Chris Brown. Directed by Hype Williams, it’s splashed with vibrant colors and the high gloss slickness that a singer on Brandy’s level is accustomed to. A few weeks ago Brandy was on The Skorpion Show talking about this video; she said she had to put in some work to keep up with Chris Brown’s dance moves, but any of that awkwardness never hit tape.more..
In case you missed it, Brandy was recently a guest on The Skorpion Show (video posted yesterday.) She talked about her new album being reflective of who she is today: more experienced in life and reflective about who, where and what things mean. It has given her a new energy. So on her new album, she didn’t want to hold anything back.
“I’m just at the point in my life where I want to take chances. I just don’t want to be safe. So this album is just not safe. I’m talking sexy, we do have the ballads, but the lyrics are little bit riskier and edgier than anything I’ve done in the past. It’s just a different kind of flavor to this album.”
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.
The video for Brandy’s new single “Right Here (Departed)” debuted early this week. The song is about being there for the people you love no matter what. Little X directed the video. Brandy was excited about the concept he came up with, but it’s a little confusing. Did she pass away and is coming back as a spirit to those people, or is she Goddess Durga?more..
TMZ was outside of a Los Angeles courthouse yesterday and the husband of the woman Brandy allegedly killed in a car crash told them he is extremely upset that Brandy is living it up while his wife is well.. no longer with us.
Of course his lawyer did the talking..
“His wife is gone and it’s very, very frustrating causing him extreme anger and all the emotions that one can possibly imagine a spouse could go through when he sees Brandy out there partying, dancing, drinking. Literally living life, enjoying life. It has been absolutely no ramifications on her at this point.”
The Heineken Red Star Soul showcase kicked off in Los Angeles last night.
The showcase is a series of invitation only concerts to celebrate emerging and established singers. At each concert Heineken presents the Independent Achiever Award to a local rising star. The concerts actually begin on Sept. 12th in Philadelphia and run thru Nov. 8th. Last night was a smaller event. Common and Raheem Devine performed but it was mostly about building buzz and meeting with friends.
