Chris Brown Accused of Stealing Fans iPhone!

Chris Brown has been accused of angrily snatching an iPhone in Miami.

I don’t how much weight this story has, as I know TMZ really don’t like Chris Brown. But the 22-year-old R&B singer doesn’t seem to be doing himself any favours. The US celebrity website is reporting Brown angrily snapped at a fan for taking a picture of him outside a night club, then snached her phone and sped off in his Mercedes. Oh dear.

Here’s what TMZ is reporting:

Chris Brown has been accused of angrily snatching some girl’s iPhone outside a nightclub in Miami this weekend … and driving off with it — law enforcement tells TMZ.

A rep for the Miami Beach PD tells TMZ, 24-year-old Christal Spann filed a police report Sunday for “robbery by snatching” — claiming she followed Chris and rapper Tyga out of Cameo nightclub early in the morning (see photo above) … and snapped a picture of Chris getting into his Bentley.

Christal told cops … Chris flipped out when he saw her camera phone– then grabbed it through the car window, saying, “Bitch, you’re not gonna put that on the Internet.”

According to the police report, Chris then rolled up his window and drove off — $500 iPhone in hand.

A rep for the Miami Beach PD tells us, no arrests have been made and no warrant has been issued yet. We’re told the incident is currently under investigation.

It’s not looking to good for CB…

Emeli Sande ‘Annoyed’ By Brits Snub!

While we’ve all been going crazy about Adele‘s acceptance speech snub at the Brits (which was damn right rude), we totally forgot about another Brit star who was also ‘subbbed’ by the ITV-screen award show.

Scottish singer Emile Sande – who’s debut album is currently number one in the charts – is “annoyed” with the Brits for preventing her from picking up her Critics Choice gong onstage at the Tuesday 21st ceromony.

The 24 year old was chosen for the honour by a panel of experts and like previous winners such as Jessie J and Ellie Goulding, the bleached haired Heaven singer was expected to pick up the trophy during the London ceremony.

But due to “time constraints” Sande was not asked to go onstage to accept her award and was therefore left hurt by the snub.

A fan asked Sande on Twitter:”Did u get ur (your) award… the camera only went on yea (sic) for (a) sec (second).”

Sande replied, “Yeh… kinda Annoying. But it’s on top of my piano now!”

A source tells The Sun newspaper:

“She’d been looking forward to it for months and was really disappointed when her win was not properly recognised. She’s worked incredibly hard over the last year and what she has achieved has been phenomenal.”

Oh ITV, you really did mess up this year, didn’t ya?!

President Obama sings the blues with Mick Jagger & BB King!

Obama’s seriously eyeing up a recording contract…

After singing some sweet notes of Al Green at a recent fundraiser in Harlem, President Barack Obama showed the world that he has a rather good voice.  So last night during a concert at the White House in honor of Black History Month – which featured musicians Mick Jagger and B.B. King – the smooth taking Commander In Chief took to the mic once again, this time to sing the blues.

During a performance of ‘Sweet Home Chicago’ Buddy Guy pointed to President Obama and said ‘I heard you singing Al Green, so you done started something, you gotta keep it up now.”  Although he was hesitant, The Prez grabbed the mic and got his swagger right before singing “Baby don’t you wanna go? Baby don’t you wanna go?”

How sexy is Obama? He’s so much cooler than David Cameron.

Pregnant glamour model walks the runway naked at London Fashion Week!

I’m all for pushing the boundaries in the name of fashion, but having a full nude runway show in order to promote hats just seems  a lot a little far fetched and more about ‘shocking’ people and gaining cheap publicity rather than  being primarily about the designs.

A model on the catwalk during a naked catwalk show by milliner Robyn Coles

Glamour model and former Miss Wales Sophia Cahill appeared at Welsh milliner Robyn Coles’ debut show wearing nothing but a series of striking hats.

She took to the catwalk at the White Rabbit Studio in Shoreditch, east London, with four other nude models, including actor and comedian Jeff Leach.

Coles, 31, from Pontypool, South Wales, said she wanted to include Cahill, who is a friend from home, because it is rare to see pregnant women on the catwalk.

‘She was one person I knew would be more than happy to get her kit off. I thought it would be nice she would be pregnant for the show. You never see that kind of thing in fashion.’

Coles said it was important for her to use models of different shapes and sizes in her show, but admitted her main motivation for getting them naked was for publicity.

‘As an unknown designer you have to find ways of getting people to your show. I wanted to use different models and different sizes. I’m a big believer in that. With accessories like hats it doesn’t mater what size or shape you are.’

In the show Cahill sported three peacock blue hats, all with blue and maroon adornments.

Coles said: ‘All the hats are felt for autumn/winter so they are ideal for winter weddings and races. Winter hats don’t have to be monochrome.’

The designer would not confirm if her future shows would feature fully nude models, merely saying: ‘I’ve got loads of stupid ideas for next time.’

Well the publicity stunt seems to have worked, as it’s made all the fashion headlines. But now let’s see if the publicity translates into hat sales….

Shakira signs to Jay-Z’s Roc Nation Label!

If you thought Jay-Z‘s label was strictly “urban” , then think again. Where as Roc-A-Fella may have been straight up hip-hop, HOV’s branching out to all genres of music this time around. The rap mogul has just signed Shakira to his Roc Nation imprint. XXLmagazine reports that the Colombian superstar – who has  two Grammys and eight Latin Grammys under her belt –  is now label mates with the likes of Rihanna, J Cole and  Santigold.

Shakira, Shakira! She’s throwing up the Roc. The superstar Colombian singer has signed to Jay-Z’s Roc Nation for management, XXLMag.com has learned.

With worldwide appeal, Shakira has sold more than 60 million albums and won 12 Billboard Latin Music Awards, eight Latin Grammy Awards and two Grammy Awards.

With the signing to Roc Nation for management, Shakira joins the likes of Rihanna, Wale, Santigold and Melanie Fiona, who are all signed under Roc Nation’s management umbrella. Managed producers under Roc Nation include Jahlil Beats, No I.D. and S1.

Jigga may not have been the most valid boss when he was head of Def Jam, but the On The Next One MC is really making his mark with his current label as he continues to take Roc Nation to new heights.  He’s definitely got his eyes set on becoming a billionaire – and soon.

The BRIT Awards 2012: Full Winners List!

So the biggest night in UK music just happened, but unlike the Grammy’s the previous week, the BRIT Awards lacked a certain je ne sais quoi. Admittedly, the performances were really good: Bruno Mars and Adele both put on a pitch perfect amazing performance, Rihanna raised the energy levels with an uptempo fun rendition of her number one smash hit single “We Found Love”,  Ed Sheeren and Florence and the Machine showcased Britsh talent at its best and Blur took us down memory lane with some  Brit-pop 90’s classics.

But even with all those great performances, the show was still a little lackluster. But it was a great showcase for British music none-the-less.

A HUGE congrats to Ed Sheeran for bagging two gongs and Rihanna and Bruno Mars for winning international male and female artist.  Also well done to One Direction on getting their first ever BRIT Award (such lovely handsome young  lads). And a special congratulations to Adele,  who also bagged two awards. But shame on the BRITs organizers for doing a Kanye on her, by cutting her off before she got the chance to make an acceptance speech after winning the biggest prize of the night. But hey, no need to feel sorry for Adele, she’s no Taylor Swift, the feisty singer stuck her fingers up, telling the organizers to F%@K OFF for their rude interruption – you go girl! Adele’s from Tottenham, don’t get it twisted.

Check out a video clip below:

New Music: Rihanna – Birthday Cake (Remix Ft. Chris Brown)

I’ve gotta hand it to Rihanna and Chris Brown for knowing how to generate the media’s attention. Last night RiRi finally dropped her controversial “Birthday Cake” remix – on her actual birthday – which features none other than her ex lover Breezy. The sexually charged song won’t help kill rumors that the former sweethearts are still lusting for one another. With lyrics such as:

“Girl, I wanna f-ck you right now.
Been a long time. I been missin your body.
Lemme lemme turn the lights down.
When I, when I go down it’s a private party.
Ooh ooh, it’s not even her birthday,
but I wanna lick the icing off.
Give it to her in the worst way.
Can’t wait to blow her candles off.”

Rihanna raps back:

Remember how you did it, remember how you did it
If you still wanna kiss it, come come and get it
Put a candle on my muthaf-ckin back, baby blow it..
Daddy make a wish, put this cake in your face..
