Posted in 1 on October 29, 2012 by bobbybounce

Natina Reed died after a car hit her as she was crossing the street in Atlanta over the weekend. Today (10/28) would have been her 33rd birthday.

The Atlanta Journal-Consitution report that the driver will not be charged for Natina’s death.

“As of right now, it does not appear that the driver has any fault in this event,” said police spokesman Sgt. Rich Long, who added that it was the driver who contacted police about the accident. The driver, who was not immediately identified, was not expected to be charged, the spokesman said. …

Long said investigators were still trying to determine why Reed was in the roadway and whether she was crossing or walking alongside it. The spokesman said CPR was performed at the scene and Reed was taken to Gwinnett Medical Center, where she was pronounced dead at 10:59 p.m.

Long said other than the driver and a passenger in the car, there did not appear to be any additional witnesses.”

Natina left behind a 10-year-old son Tren Brown with rapper Kurupt.

Blaque reunited this fall and they were working on a new album and reality show. No word if the album or reality show project will be cancelled.

An official statement has been released from Left Eye Music via StraightFromTheA:

On Behalf of Blaque and the entire Left Eye Music Family, “We are devastated by the loss of our group member, sister and friend Natina Reed. Because of the enormous support of Blaque fans and our love for each another, Blaque officially reunited this fall and we were in the process of working on a new album and a reality show. Natina continuously embodied the pioneering spirit of Blaque and her undeniable creativity touched the hearts of fans everywhere. Natina was a mother, sister, accomplished songwriter, artist and friend.

We ask for your prayers at this time for Natina’s family. She will forever be missed and her global influence eternally felt. We thank God for the experiences we shared.”

Beyonce At The Super Bowl: Singer Confirms Halftime Gig On Her Blog (PHOTO)

Posted in 1 on October 17, 2012 by bobbybounce

It’s official! Beyonce will perform at the Super Bowl halftime show.

After the AP broke the story with an anonymous source, the singer took to her blog to confirm the gig in a decidedly Beyonce manner: She posted a photo of her face with eyeblack featuring the words “Feb. 3 2013.” That, of course, is the date of Super Bowl XLVII.

Last year, Madonna teamed up with M.I.A., Nicki Minaj and LMFAO for a somewhat chaotic halftime performance (M.I.A. notoriously showed the camera her middle finger).

A source familiar with the Super Bowl told The Associated Press the Grammy-winning diva will take the stage at the halftime show on Feb. 3, 2013, at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans. The source spoke on condition of anonymity because that person wasn’t authorized to publicly reveal the information.

Beyonce, whose pop and R&B hits include “Crazy in Love,” “Irreplaceable” and “Single Ladies (Put a Ring on It),” has won 16 Grammy Awards. The 31-year-old sang the national anthem at the 2004 Super Bowl in her hometown of Houston when the New England Patriots defeated the Carolina Panthers. #ShoutOut:

Kesha, VIBE Magazine: Singer Is First White Woman to Land on Cover

Posted in 1 on October 12, 2012 by bobbybounce

Kesha is VIBE magazine’s newest cover girl. And not only is this the “Die Young” singer’s first appearance on the publication’s cover, it’s the first time any white woman has ever landed on the front of the hip-hop and R&B mag!

Kesha’s delivery of partially rapped, partially sung lyrics blurs genre lines for some, but the performer herself dismisses suggestions she is a rapper.

“The first time someone called me a rapper, I started laughing,” she says. “I was shocked, and thought it was hilarious. But then, Andre 3000 was telling me how he thinks I’m a good rapper. And Wiz [Khalifa], who’s a good friend of mine, thinks I’m a good rapper? Snoop [Dogg]? It’s crazy and funny to me.”

Chris Lighty Tribute, BET Hip Hop Awards 2012: Missy Elliott, Q-Tip & More Perform

Posted in 1 on October 10, 2012 by bobbybounce

The 2012 BET Hip Hop Awards honored fallen music executive Chris Lighty Tuesday night (Oct. 9), uniting enemies and bringing friends together on one stage.

LL Cool J, an artist signed to Lighty’s Violator Management company, commenced the tribute by calling out the fact that the music mogul was “my friend.” Noticeably sad, he welcomed A Tribe Called Quest members Q-Tip and Phife Dawg to take the stage, where they performed their classic hip-hop ode “Award Tour.” #Salute #Respect
