Bill Mahr & Rihanna's Mom Monica Fenty Presents Her with 2013 AMA Icon Award

Quick Thoughts on the 2013 American Music Awards

..I know I take shots at Justin Timberlake sometimes, but that drinking song he did  last night was really good!

...JT's  a great performer, I just thought 20/20 Experience  could have  been one great album instead of two decent ones.

...After her early Mariah Carey  like performance, I expect big things from Ariana Grande within the next few years, sweet girl, really good voice.

...Not sure why Bill Mahr gave Rihanna her Icon award (and isn't kind of early for her to get that award already?)
...TLC isn't the same without Lefteye.

.... Mackelemore & Ryan Lewis looks like they have a really good  high energy show .

.... Is it me or is J-Lo more naked now before she had kids.

....Who's next with the lip syncing cat (I see you Cyrus!).

.... Pitbull is a cool dude, but he should have had a  co-host like Sofia Vergara to play with on camera.

....Bruno Mars, Robin Thicke, Daft Punk and Calvin Harris got screwed last night.

....I'm not a fan of new country, but even I know Miranda Lambert is more of a country artist than Taylor Swift at this point.

....Naya Rivera=Big Sean is a lucky man.

...I'm enjoying these Lady Gaga and R. Kelly sex filled performances of "Do What You Want", but it also tells me that Lady Gaga knows that are very few R&B singers have voices as strong as R. Kelly today to her match her equally strong voice.

....Since my Android  is broke, it was kind of nice not tweeting and watching the AMAs without being distracted by the phone.

Did you see what the Governor did on the Walking Dead last night!!

Did you see what Family Guy did to  Brian last night!!

Did you see how that Patriots/Broncos game ended last night!!!

Jay Z's New New Statement on the Barney’s Controversy

In the past several weeks two separate investigations were launched as a result of the wrongful detention of Trayon Christian and Kayla Phillips. My team has been privy to the status of the Barneys third party consultant investigation. In continuing our research, we also contacted the New York State Attorney General’s office for the status of their investigation into both Barneys and Macy’s. Those findings are not yet available.

While I await the findings of the Attorney General’s Office, I have agreed to move forward with the launch of BNY SCC collection under the condition that I have a leadership role and seat on a council specifically convened to deal with the issue of racial profiling. I am in a unique position to use my voice to affect change to this disturbing issue. The easy position would have been to walk away and leave policy making to others hoping that someone addresses the problem. I will not leave the outcome to others. I will take this into my own hands with full power to recommend, review and revise policies and guidelines moving forward. I am choosing to take this head on.

As I previously stated, the collaboration with Barneys has always been about giving and The Shawn Carter Foundation. From this collection, the Foundation will receive not only 25% of sales, it will now receive the additional 75% of Barneys’ sales, totalling 100% of all sales from BNY SCC. Along with 100% of sales from the collaboration, the Foundation will receive an additional 10% of all retail sales from Barneys New York stores nationwide and on November 20th. – Shawn “JAY Z” Carter

25 Years Later: Jimmy Jam on New Edition’s N.E. Heartbreak Album

How did you become involved with this New Edition project?
Well, it’s sort of an interesting story. What happened was we went into a meeting to talk with Jheryl Busby about his search for a male artist. He wanted to sign a male artist. He wanted to talk to us about who that male artist should it be and, if they signed him, would we produce him. So – we went into the meeting and he threw out a bunch of names of male artists that he thought were good or underrated. In our conversation, there was a name that was glaringly missing from his list. We told him we know of someone who fits the description you’re looking for. And we said, “Johnny Gill.” He said, “Wow. Johnny Gill. I didn’t even think about him. What is he up to?” I said to him, “He’s still singing and that he was what you were looking for because not only can he sing well, but he is really young.” He was much younger than the guys he was talking about to the other gentlemen in the room. The problem that Johnny Gill had was that he had a very mature voice, but he was a young guy. But then he grew into his voice. He said, “Well, that’s cool then. So if I sign Johnny, you guys will produce him.” We told him, “Sure. We’d love to do it.” This is where the beginning of the New Edition thing happened.
After this meeting, we actually ran into Johnny at a concert. Johnny came up to us and asked us how we were doing. I told him we looked forward to working with him and he said, “Yea, working together on that New Edition album is going to be great. We asked, “The New Edition record?” He said, “Yea. I’m part of the group now.” We called Busby and asked him, “What is up with the New Edition thing?” He told us, “Isn’t it great! We put Johnny with New Edition and you guys can work together with the group.” The cool thing was that we were huge fans of New Edition. The first time we heard their record “Candy Girl” was when we were on tour with our group The Time. We were in the club and when the DJ put the record on, we were like, “Who is that?” He told us it was a group called New Edition. I loved them. I recognized the name Maurice Starr because I was a DJ while producing music in my younger days. I remember his name because Maurice Starr had a single out that I really liked and it worked really well in my club. We went to some of their shows and the guys were really cool. We worked with them on a song called “Helplessly in Love” for theDragnet soundtrack. So – we were familiar with the guys and we knew each other and we all got along. It was fantastic. We had no idea Johnny was going to be a part of the group. This was our introduction to knowing that he was going to be a part of the group.
What's your favorite New Edition song?
