This week, it’s time to snuggle up around the fire with some sweet R&B! And there are a whole lot of tunes that’ll warm you up. Ciara’s using her basic instinct. R. Kelly is going retro. P. Diddy joins a musical menage and is now Diddy-Dirty Money. Ryan Adams does a double disc hipster rock opera. Yelawolf un-raps what’s in the trunk. And Michael Jackson’s posthumous record is finally out. So, let’s get into the groove, after the jump! Keep reading »

Enrique Iglesias Doesn’t Kiss His Fans With Tongue

“I just get excited when I go on stage. I don’t do it all the time. I’ve got to be in a good mood, and I was in a good mood. There was no tongue.”

Enrique Iglesais explains his tendency to kiss fans who are pulled on stage during his concerts. My inner body language expert says the one to the left didn’t know what to think; her lips said yes as Enrique kissed her, but her arms crossed over her chest said no. [People] Keep reading »

Even Though Michael Jackson Is Gone, We Can Still Hold His Hand

“Hold My Hand,” featuring Akon, is the late Michael Jackson’s first posthumous single release from the upcoming album Michael. I actually like the song, but I could do without the “happy/sad children motif.” Perhaps not the most flattering choice. Anyhow, R.I.P., MJ. Keep reading »

What’s so tragic about this story is that: (a) the other half of the duo, Rob Pilatus, was found dead of a prescription pill overdose in 1998 and (b) that the guys could actually sing, and it seems like they were railroaded by their producer into taking credit for others’ vocals. Heck, they were homeless when they signed their contract. So I’m very glad to hear that Fab—who is pretty easy on the eyes with his closely cropped hair—is back in the music game. Keep reading »
