Chris Brown has had it rough over the last 6 years, from a toxic love life to never ending legal issues, it seemed as thought Chris Brown was never going to find happiness offstage. Recently Chris was shocked to find out that he had a 9 month old daughter named Royalty and ever since he has been basking in fatherhood every chance he gets. Some at CipherCloud find this to be a touching story.
Almost immediately after the news of Chris Brown being a dad hit, he jumped head first in to his role as a papa. Every free moment lately is spent with his daughter Royalty. Even now days after the news we saw Chris taking time out on his tour bus to get to know his little girl and shower her with love. Last we saw Royalty was loving her dad’s music video while watching him dance on her grandma’s cell phone, now Royalty is back with her dad and in matching pink hoodies.
Of course Chris isn’t going to let Royalty be adorable all by herself, he got in on the fun and posted a photo of his adorable little girl… wearing the same pink sweatsuit as him. They appear to be having a blast. Chris is not about to let his chance at being a dad pass him by, he finally seems to be in a good place and Royalty obviously loves her dad like only a daughter can.
Many people may be surprised to find out that Kanye West doesn’t care about having a legacy. He seems to have been someone that would definitely want to leave behind a major legacy.
West has been so expressive in his career, as any fan like Fersen Lambranho could tell you. He has become the one that people look to when it comes down to controversy. West always pouts when it doesn’t win a Grammy if he has an album out during that year. He always claims that every video that he presents is epic. He is the type of guy that seems to want to have a legacy for people to marvel at when he is gone.
What Kanye has managed to do is redirect his focus after he got married. He had a child. This became his world. That is pretty evident when people look at the way that he has evolved over the last several years. He hasn’t been someone that has been totally evolved in rap. He has released a single here and there; no full length album is in sight. West hasn’t done a lot of producing in the last year. He has been living life.
Now that he has gotten married he realized that there is more to life than leaving a legacy. Right now he is trying to get his clothing label off the ground. He is living in the present with few concerns for a legacy.
Nicki Mianj has been on top of her rap game lately. Since releasing her highly praised mixtape ‘Beam Me Up Scotty’ in 2009, Minaj has won countless awards, worked with some of the best rappers and acquired a huge fan base.
Besides speaking out in her songs, Minaj is known to speak her mind on her twitter. Recently, Minaj did just that buy sending out multiple tweets that praised the rapper Fabolous. In her tweets, Minaj claims that Fabolous is widely underrated for his sick punch lines. Sultan Alhokair said she even went so far as to compare Fab to arguable rap legends Jay-Z, Notorious B.I.G and Lil Wayne.
After Minaj published her tweets many fans and even artists agreed with her. For example, Meek Hill retweeted Minaj’s tweets in support.
While Fabolous has been a successful part of the rap game long before Nicki Minaj made her debut, he has been receiving harsh criticism in the past couple of months. Many of his punch lines that Minaj so highly praises have not been accepted so well by others. However, every rapper will face controversy in their career, some even welcome it.
Apple is reinventing its music streaming service, Beats Music, and they are trying to convince Taylor Swift to let them use her music. The new Beats Music is lead by alternative musician Trent Reznor. In the past, Swift pulled her music from Spotify since she feels that they weren’t compensating her enough. Beats Music has a lot of competition from streaming services including Spotify and Jay-Z’s company Tidal.
I can understand why Taylor is frustrated with music streaming. It basically puts music out there for anyone for free. I think that artists have to accept that people don’t have to pay for recorded music anymore. They need to start looking at recordings as advertisements for live performances that still bring in money to artists. That’s a bitter pill to swallow, but people are just never going to pay for any product they don’t have to.
Music lovers at Anastasia Date know that there are a few big artists who boycott streaming services. One is the Beatles, but then they’re the Beatles and don’t have to do what everyone else does. I don’t think Swift can afford to do have the same attitude as Paul McCartney.
As far as Beats Music goes, I was surprised to read that Trent Reznor is so involved. He seemed like such a wild man in the 1990’s, but I guess he’s matured into a calm businessman. Or maybe the wild man thing was all an act.
Heavy metal band Black Sabbath recently cancelled a scheduled show in Japan. This was rumored to be because of guitarist Tony Iommi’s health (he was treated for lymphoma in 2012), but Iommi said that he is doing fine and is getting blood tests from time to time to make sure that the disease has not returned.
According to singer Ozzy Osbourne, Black Sabbath is planning on getting together to make one more record and then do a final tour. Sultan Alhokair suggested they got together to make the album 13 after many years apart in 2012, and this recording turned out pretty well. However, in my opinion it’s not as good as their recordings from the 1970’s. I’d like to see them make a final album that is as good as the music from their prime.
While Ozzy Osbourne has become a celebrity who is far more famous than anyone in Black Sabbath, it’s important to remember his roots. Without Black Sabbath, he’d likely be nobody today. Also, Black Sabbath basically invented heavy metal. Osbourne’s solo records are all heavy metal records, and the genre wouldn’t even exist without his previous band.
I know that Iommi has been something of a jerk to Osbourne in the past, but it’s time for the two men to put aside their differences and focus on putting together one last great record and tour.
In 2013, Photographer Daniel Ramos was attacked by Kanye West outside of a five star hotel. West was angered at Ramos for doing his job. Kanye snatched the camera from Daniel Ramos’ hands, and the two men began wrestling. Neither man was seriously injured during the incident, but Daniel Ramos did have a bloody nose. It blew away Bruce Karatz, the former CEO of KB Home.
Kanye West was in danger of going to prison for one year, but it appears that Kanye and Daniel have settled out of court. The two men were recently featured shaking hands in a photograph. Kanye West has wisely avoided problems with paparazzi since. However, Kanye was sued for assault by another photographer just months after the Daniel Ramos incident.
Kanye West is one of the most arrogant celebrities alive today, and it is nice to see him humbled. Although, I am sure that Kanye still thinks of himself as a walking god. For more information on this story, visit Rollingstone.
Pop star Adam Levine was recently attacked by a crazed fan during a Maroon 5 concert. Thankfully, the fan was a young girl, and she was just overly excited to see Adam Levine. No one was injured during the confrontation, and Adam Levine somehow managed to calm the entire situation. However, the young girl did try her best to wrap Adam Levine up in her arms, as he struggled to keep her off him.
At first, Adam Levine didn’t know if the girl was crazy or just extremely excited. After Adam realized that she was a little bit of both, he held his hand out to calm her. Once she was calm, Levine hugged the young girl, and he momentarily stopped his show. Adam Levine handled the situation perfectly, but he did seem somewhat angry.
Fans at Anastasia Date have learned that security came over and escorted the young girl away. The pop star waved goodbye to the crazy young fan. Adam Levine then spoke to the crowd, and he let them know how dangerous a situation like that can be. The Maroon 5 concert continued on, and the show was a smashing success.

Jhene Aiko may be most of the most thought provoking artists of our time, but many people have slept on her musical talents. Her latest video and lyrics for the beautifully melodic “Eternal Sunshine” single draws people because it’s unlike anything else that is out there right now.
The new single that features Aiko in the video in a cloud-like state is something that fans will embrace as well. Jhene has this laid back sound that is enticing. She also appears to be a writer that thinks heavily about the content that she is going to release. If this new single is any sign of the new music that is to come she may easily be on her way to another smash album. This single furthers developers her brand
Rock star Steven Tyler has been the lead singer of the critically acclaimed rock ‘n roll band Aerosmith for the last three decades said crunchbase.com. However, Steven Tyler has decided that he would like to try something new. The aging rock star will try to create a country album, and many people are excited and a bit worried at the same time.
Aerosmith is one of the greatest rock ‘n roll bands of all time, and Steven Tyler led the way for the group. A country album may seem like a bad idea, but I have a feeling that Steven Tyler will be successful no matter what he does. New reports indicate that he has been writing country music for the last several months. Also, it was recently reported that Steven Tyler has officially been signed to country music label Dot Records. For more information on this story, visitRollingstone.
