I told you some weeks ago that Whitney Houston would get a memorial CBS special. Well, it’s just been announced officially. Jennifer Hudson and Usher are the first two stars announced. The show, We Will Always Love You, will tape on October 11th in Los Angeles at the Nokia Theater. The public can buy tickets in Ticketmaster. I expect R. Kelly will be added, as he’s featured on the new greatest hits package coming from RCA shortly. Kelly mixed up a new duet of the song he wrote for Whitney called “I Look to You.” The special will feature interviews and clips. They should really include Jermaine Jackson, Narada Michael Walden, and the original people from Arista who helped put together the first couple of Whitney Houston albums. The special will air in December on CBS. [Source]
“I would slap the s*** out of somebody for Gwyneth Paltrow,” Nas told CBS Localexclusively. “She’s the homie, she’s cool. Gwyneth gets a pass. Real people get a pass. We know what this s*** is. We don’t interrupt Italians when they say ‘Wop’ to each other. They gonna punch you in the mouth if you interrupt that. Don’t interrupt us. We pick and choose. Some might not feel the same way. Some of us will get angrier about it than others; but some people get a pass. The people that I know who are cool and real n****s, Gwyneth Paltrow is a real n****, that’s my homie. That’s how I’m on it. Some people get a pass.”
Below is the actual tweet. She tweets that she is on the stage during a performance of “N**gas In Paris.” I personally do not see the problem. They shouldn’t come out with songs that certain groups of people aren’t “allowed” to say. Sounds discriminatory! Let be honest… why folks are the biggest consumers of rap music. What should she have called it?
Jennifer Hudson performed for the Good Morning America Summer Concert Series. Following the concert, she was rushed to a local hospital after complaining about feeling abdominal pain. She was later released with “food poisoning.” Hopefully she is okay.
Here’s a performance of her hit song from her first album, “Spotlight.”
