Check out the video for "Blessed" below, and keep an eye out for some special cameos.
Nicki Minaj reloads Twitter page
Much like her alter ego Roman, Nicki Minaj has reloaded! The "Starships" rapper has returned to Twitter after deleting her page just nine days ago.
Unfortunately, the absence has cost her some of the 11 million followers she previously had. As of press time this morning, Nicki had only regained about 1.8 million of her Barbz.
Nicki, who told CapitalFM last week that she quit Twitter because she "needed a moment" to herself, has yet to tweet anything since her return.
Brian McKnight gets raunchy
Brian McKnight is ready to teach, if you’re ready to learn. The R&B crooner has shed all pretense of romance on a new x-rated track, which starts off with the line, "Let me show you how your p*ssy works."
It would be the first track on an "adult" mixtape he’s thinking of putting out.
The song has been met with mixed reactions, and some fans have questioned what Brian is thinking! He told TMZ that it’s because he’s been stuck in the house with an injured ankle.
"I’m like a month away from Achilles tendon surgery, so I’ve been stuck in the house," Brian explained, adding that listeners shouldn’t take the song too seriously. "It’s a parody. I’m having fun because basically I have nothing else to do."
Pilar Sanders released from jail
Pilar Sanders is out of jail after fighting with her estranged hubby, but she can’t go home.
She was arrested for misdemeanor domestic violence following Monday’s alleged brawl. Deion was charged with simple assault. A judge has decreed that she cannot go anywhere near him for the next 60 days, which means she can’t live in their sprawling 10-bedroom Texas mansion.
"I understand that I have very little chance at beating a Hall of Fame, two-sport man that everyone seems to love and adore," she tearfully told reporters after being released Monday. “I’m a full-time mom, 100 percent for my children. And I just haven’t been given a fair shake.”
Wayne Brady talks blackness
Is Wayne Brady gonna have to choke a b*tch?! The funnyman sat down with Sway to talk about what he’s been up to lately. But before they could get down to business, Sway wanted Wayne to clear up a common misconception.
"There’s just some people…some of our people…that are just like, ‘You know, [you’re] not Black enough,’" Wayne shared. "What is Black enough? Because being honest all of us can’t be thugs. And most people are not."
Wayne doesn’t want you to be fooled, though; thuggery does not equal Blackness in his opinion. He’s very aware that he’s a Black man. "When I wake up in the morning, there is a reminder," he said, referring to his complexion. "There is no world in which I wake up and go, ‘Oh, man. I’m kinda pale.’ That’s not happening tomorrow."
President Obama slow jams the news
President Barack Obama is back on the mic! He hit up "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon" last night to deliver the news in a lyrical way.
The message he was trying to deliver on Tuesday was about keeping interest rates on Stafford student loans from going up. Find out why it’s so important to keep the cost down in the video below.
