    Christina Milian finds her sound

    Christina Milian said she’s really happy with how her next album is shaping up.

    "It’s going well, I’ve been working on it this entire summer," she told Rap-Up.com, adding that she’s gotten the help from some "really great producers and writers" to help establish the project’s vibe. "I think I found my sound for this one." 

    It’s not clear whether she’s talking about the project that was, at one point, titled Elope. However, as C-Mili put it, whatever she comes out with won’t be the same type of album it would have been two years ago.

    "I’ve gone through a lot since then, so it’s definitely a little more honest," explained Christina, who indicated the project had taken on a whole different trajectory. "It’s based on living life and there’s more to talk about now."

    Bruno Mars sues music publisher

    Bruno Mars is fighting his way out from the clutches of his publishing deal with Bug Music Inc.

    TMZ.com reports that Bruno is suing the company because it won’t let him ouf of his contract with them despite that fact that he’s completed all the terms of the deal.

    Court documents state the he turned in a number of songs to the publisher by February, per their agreement. The problem is that once Bug Music had the material, it had certain amount of time to renew the deal. The "Grenade" artist argued that he thought the company had let the contract expire because executives never got back to him.

    Bug Music disagrees with Bruno, however, contending that he is still under contract.  Bryno wants a judge to settle the matter so that he can move forward with his career.

    Maya Angelou criticizes King Memorial

    Poet Maya Angelou said an edited inscription engraved in stone on the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial, makes the legendary civil rights leader sound arrogant.

    The original quote was, “If you want to say that I was a drum major, say that I was a drum major for justice. Say that I was a drum major for peace. I was a drum major for righteousness.”

    The words on the side of the MLK statue read, “I was a drum major for justice, peace and righteousness.”

    In Maya’s opinion, the paraphrased version don’t do the speech or the revered reverend justice.

    “The quote makes Dr. Martin Luther King look like an arrogant twit. He was anything but that,” she said. “He had no arrogance at all. He had a humility that comes from deep inside. The ‘if’ clause that is left out is salient. Leaving it out changes the meaning completely.”
