I first heard and received a copy of this song last year, and it was only sung by Justin Timberlake, and to be honest, his version is much better than this duet. But the video definitely makes up for it. This video is HOT!! You can't get more sexier than this!

For those that don't know, Alexyss Tylor is a motivational speaker, lecturer, and talk show host that has been receiving huge attention in the states over her, somewhat controversial views on issues that affect the black community.
Have a look at her latest video where she claims that black men were taught to be promiscuous by following the actions of their slave masters.
Does she have a point, and furthermore, does it really stem that deep? Let us now your thoughts.

Okay, so the 'King of Pop' has outdone himself again! He'll now play 30 nights at O2!
Initially he was meant to play 10 nights at London's, The O2, but after today's pre-sale tickets were released from 7am this morning, and 1.5 million people were trying to get their hands on some tickets, the intial 10 shows sold out within seconds.
To cater to the huge demand for tickets, AEG Live added another 9 days, but those too sold out like hot cakes, within seconds. Talk about record breaking!! So they added another 11 shows, which as I'm typing at this moment in time, are selling out!
Get your tickets while there's still a chance on Friday, when the tickets go on sale to the public. I warn you to stay awake all Thursday night!!
With 30 nights in total, MJ will top Prince's 21 nights at The 02. Both of these great entertainers are 50 years old, and have been in the music game for quite some time now. Prince was great last year at The O2, he performed every night with such showmanship. passion and adrenaline, so much so that I saw him perform twice in those 21 nights, and the little man done good!
Now we all know they are both getting on in age, and both have some health problems,(Prince had a hip replacement, and MJ...well I shall not even get into that), but who do you think will be 'The King of The O2'?
Can MJ do all 30 nights? I would love for him to, but me thinks not! MJ can just about breathe through that reconstructed nose of his, let alone perform on stage for 30 nights. Let hope he 'Dont Stop Till WE Get Enough'. SMH
I know a lot of people don't agree on anything Diddy has to say, but this time I think everyone will.
Diddy was on The Elllen Degeneres Show to promote his Twitter page, iamdiddy, and P Twitty TV. Ellen asked him why he didn't use his Twitter to twit about Chris and Rihanna staying at his house in Miami, and Diddy definitely put her in her place, and anybody else who had a problem with him "supporting a friend".
LOL @ his dancing entrance...you gotta love him!

You would never believe that it was 12 years ago that one of the G.O.A.Ts of Hip Hop was brutally gunned down and murdered in a drive-by shooting in LA. The Notorious B.I.G was an inspiration to many and a great lyricist. Under the wing of Puffy, he spawned out hits after hits and truly put Brooklyn on the map. His life was cut short at the age of 24 over some East Coast vs West Coast beef. His murder is still unsolved!
SocialWriters are BIG fans of Biggie, so it's only right that we pay tribute to his legacy. Here's some of our fave Biggie tracks:
RVB - Get Money
"The beat is emotional. I get goosebumps everytime I hear it and I know all the words!"
Karlito Starr - Big Poppa
"It was just smooth and laid back(like me).I liked the Isley Brothers' sample. The track reminds me of Yo! MTV Raps, the good ol' days!"
RAE - Sky's The Limit (ft 112)
"It's one of those inspirational songs that will stick with you for life. His precise worldplay and laid back flow are all the reasons why he is arguably the greatest rapper of all time. The hook of "just keep on pushing on" from 112 also does it for me."
KCB - Hypnotize
"The video of this song just makes me love the track even more!I remember being really young and just singing the chorus out loud all the time! And Puff's ad libs 'Take that...take that' just makes me laugh everytime I hear the track."
Let's take a moment back in time...."It was all a dream/I used to read Word Up Magazine..."
If you haven't already seen the biopic film,Notorious,what the hell are you waiting for?? Also buy the soundtrack!!
R.I.P Christopher Wallace
The legacy of the 1980's film, Fame, starring Irene Cara and Debbie Allen looks set to 'live forever' as the film is being remade into a modern-day film.
Director Kevin Tancharoen knows that remaking an 'old-favourite' is hard to do.
"The first time I heard that Fame was being remade, I am guilty of saying: 'Really? I love that movie, why are they remaking that film?'"
"I can't be the guy that walks down the street and messed up a classic. So I'm making this movie as authentic as I possibly can."
As Tancharoen has some experience as a dancer and a choreographer, working with the likes of N*Sync and many others, much of the film's authenticity will come from his experience.
The updated film will be set in present time at the notorious New York City School of Performing Arts and has cast members such as former 3LW member and Notorious actress/singer, Naturi Naughton, who plays a main character called Denise, Kelsey Grammer and original cast member, Debbie Allen.
Another Save The Last Dance/Step Up movie, riding on the sucess of musicals such as High School Musical. Do you think this is a good idea??
Fame will be released in September.

Breezy did not enter a plea for the two felony charges against him but he did postpone the case until April 6th.
He also signed a waiver of presence, meaning that his attorney's can act on his behalf without him actually being present at any minor court hearings prior to April 6th.
Brown did not look too confident but what's interesting is the judge asking RiRi's attorney, Donald Etra if he wanted a "no-contact order" in place in which he replied "Miss Fenty [Rihanna] does not request such an order".
With rumours suggesting that the two have reconciled since the incident, and are now spending time together in P Diddy's mansion, the idea of Rihanna's attorney not requesting a no contact order only points to one thing.
What are your thoughts on the matter?
Props to TmZ for the video.
MJ will play 10 shows at The O2 in July, and these shows will be his "last in London". The 10 concerts will begin on July 8th and ticket prices are £50, £65 or £75, which I think is quite resonable for MJ of all people!
For all you stans, tickets go on sale Friday 13th March, but you can pre-order from MichaelJacksonLive.com
Now I must say, MJ aint as healthy as he used to be, and these days he's looking rather frail like he aint been eating enough protein. I don't think an 8 day tour is the best thing for him right now...but the show must go on I suppose?
I wish I could've watched him perform in his heyday...*sighs*
Who's going to buy some MJ tickets??

Now I'm all for Solange getting her music career on, I mean her talent needs to shine as Bey and their mum Tina are not the only talented ones in the family, but she needs to realise she is NOT a rock chick!!
Currently on tour with our fave girl Estelle in the States, Solange accidently swung her microphone stand into her audience. Luckily nobody was hurt. It's just so funny how she runs off the stage like a little girl who's done something wrong and knows they're going to get into trouble...
Fed up with questions about the incident....this is what Miss Knowles had to say via Twitter:
"My intent was to throw my mic stand off stage (turns out im a God awful rock star and quarterback) it slipped and went into the audience....the reason I ran off stage is because my show was over. I turned around to check and make sure no one was hurt. Also had my road manager go and double check... no one was harmed thank God."
Solange I love you and all...but please leave that to the professional rockstars in the future!
