Since ending Teen Savvy I've still been doing my thing on the web. The made-over Facebook page (HERE) is where you can find just about everything that you would usually find on this site.

It's been a long, prosperous journey and all good things must come to an end. Starting this site opened many doors for me. Most importantly it's an outlet for expressing my creativity. If you're a regular here I'm sure that you noticed a decline in posts and online activity overall and I apologize. The plan was to go out with a bang, but last weekend I contracted a cold and everything slowed down.
I don't want to leave any questions unanswered. Teen Savvy is ending because

Why do I feel like I'm the only one that didn't know Chris Brown had an album on the way?
Its been less than a year since Chris Brown released his fifth studio album, Fortune and the singer is already gearing up to release a new LP simply titled X. The project is said to put a more soulful Breezy on display rather than the nearly techno Breezy that can be heard on Fortune. In case you were wondering why he chose this specific letter as his album's title, x is the 24th letter of the alphabet and the singer will be 24 when the album drops.
X's first single "Fine China" co-written by Sevyn Streeter, is set to be released April 1st.
|“You can start a fight, but I ain’t fighting back/I’m cool with it/I simply came here to party/Why would I trip off the bulls**t/When I’m on the good s**t?”|
"I'm keeping it fresh but it pays homage to the old greats, Stevie Wonder, Sam Cooke and Michael Jackson," Brown says. "I don't like to go with what the crowd is doing or what I hear on the radio. I go with a gut instinct and what I feel in my heart."- Brown to USA Today

This morning singer/actress Brandy sat on the couch with Wendy Williams. While on the show the soon to be Mrs. Press talked her upcoming wedding as well as her upcoming movie and television roles.
The "Put It Down" singer was then joined by her "The Game" cast mates Lauren London and Jay Ellis. The two actresses are the new additions to the show which is in its sixth season. London plays Keira Whitaker, a former child star while Ellis will be a new player on the Sabers team named Blue.
In case you missed it (like me) watch the clip after the jump!
Monday night singer Ashanti released her new single "Never Should Have" via iTunes. I waited it out for her to confirm that it was an official single before I bought into the hype or rushed to listen to it. Eventually the singer took to Twitter and referred to "Never Should Have" as a 'single' and was met with rave reviews from commentators. The song made it's actual debut on Lifetime's Army Wives, the show in which Ashanti plays as 'army wife' Latasha. Check it out below!
HOT or NOT?
Now here's what I REALLY think of the song. (read more)
Rapper Eve goes 'simple' for the cover of her upcoming 3rd studio album, Lip Lock. This album is long overdue and without a major single that fans have latched on to I'm a little scared for her. If you don't keep up with the music world let me make it a little clearer how long overdue this album is. "Tambourine", released in April of 2007 was an original Lip Lock single. The new era Lip Lock is set to be released May 14th with a video for her current single "Make It Out This Town" on the way.
Read on for a sneak peek of the song's upcoming video!

Beyoncé and daughter Blue were spotted out yesterday afternoon and the photo above spread everywhere. Of course where there's a Bey story there's controversy. The innocent looking daughter-mommy duo caused those who find anything negative to say about ANYTHING to make assumptions about the weight/age of Blue. The toddler, who is a year and 2 months old is frequently being cited as 'too long' when it's clear that Beyoncé isn't even holding her all the way up. Some say that she should be walking instead of being held as if they birthed her and has a say so in what she 'should' be doing. Some even said things like "she was just little in the documentary", as if the documentary was a live Ustream of the family's life. *end rant*
Just that easily Beyoncé gives the spectators something else to focus on as they wipe their knees off from bowing down.
