Skylar Grey New Single 'C'mon Let Me Ride' Featuring Eminem

Skylar Grey is known for penning dark, melancholic songs we can’t get out of our heads. On her new single, “C’mon Let Me Ride,” she takes a different route by making bicycles racy, and I’m not referring to Queen’s “Bicycle Race,” which she samples for the chorus. Eminem, the executive-producer of Grey’s debut album Don’t Look Down, adds a verse filled with sex-filled metaphors. After a few listens, the Alex Da Kid-produced track became more tolerable (and that’s only because I convinced myself it is a Gwen Stefani parody).

Soul Train Awards Airs Tonite Hosted By Cedric The Entertainer

Soul Train Award is airing tonight and we are excited to watch! Soul Train was created by the late Don Cornelius that started in 1971. The show based its theme around genres such as  R&B, soul, and hip hop artists,  funk, jazz, disco, and gospel. The train was a outlet for many entertainers around the world, and to be featured on this show was like being seen on BET's 106 & Park. Most famous part of the show had to be the soul-train line and the word scramble.

To give you more History before you watch tonite, did you not know that Don Cornelius executive produced the Soul-train all the way up until 2005/2006? Well its historically true. Rest in peace Don Cornelius.

@NickiMinaj Goes In On The 105.1 Breakfast Club Crew! Yikes [Video]

Nicki Minaj hit up the Breakfast Club this morning and fans go wild when Nicki's interview with our favorite New York morning crew gets all crazy. Nicki fires back on the morning show team or as we say "Goes In" on them. Basically, as journalist she felt that the crew could have been more prepared with the interview. 

They did not have her new album Pink Friday: The Re-up music cued up. She wanted them to play other tracks from the album outside of the radio played songs like "High School" and "Freedom". Nicki was also insulted that the crew did not even see her new video "Freedom" that dropped. Hopefully the crew learned a lesson and will prepare when all of the guest on the show appears for interviews.  

Check out the interview below and tell me what you think.

Madonna Goes Topless For Naked Fragrance

The 54-year-old singer stripped down in the latest ad for her personal fragrance, Truth of Dare Naked. In the racy poster, the Material Girl is seen topless — with the name of her new scent strategically covering up her bare breasts.

Of course, this wasn’t the first of Madge’s many sexy ads to raise eyebrows.

What do you think of Madonna's new sexy ad!

In March, ABC execs ordered Madonna’s perfume commercial — which was set to air on the Disney-owned network — to be stripped of its sexual images, with producers told to digitally cover up the “Like a Virgin” crooner’s cleavage and bottom.
