|Yesterday, Alicia Keys attended the 4th Annual "Black Ball" concert for "Keep A Child Alive" alongside Iman and Bono. The event took place at the Hammerstein Ballroom in New York City:
Alicia looked nice. It's nice to see she presents herself as a classy diva these days. She's such a breath of fresh air.
AK also performed at the event. Those pictures will be posted in another upcoming blog entry.
Ms Keys also performed at the Heineken Red Star Soul concert at Spot Light in NYC earlier this week:
I'm told she tore the house down. I don't doubt it either. Alicia is always feeling the hell out of her performances which is what makes watching her perform an absolute joy. Alicia has also started shooting the video for new single Like You'll Never See Me Again. There's more Alicia goodness after the cut.
Alicia will also guest star and perform her latest single No One in an upcoming episode of Cane. Here are a couple of flicks from the episode:
Alicia was spotted on the set just chilling earlier this month. CBS will air the episode on Nov. 5 at 10 p.m. In the show, Alicia visits her long time friend Henry (played by Eddie Matos) at his club. Thanks to Nikki of ALICIA KEYS DAILY.
R&B singers Fantasia Barrino and Emily King also put in appearances at the Heineken Red Star Soul concert in NYC:
A completely ghetto H.A.M is what describes Fantasia to the fullest.
On October 24th, Janet Jackson and her beau Jermaine Dupri attended the Frederick's of Hollywood 2008 Spring Collection Fashion Show to benefit the "Clothes Off Our Back" organization:
They hung out with other celebs from the likes of Quincy Jones and his daughters Rasheeda and Kidada amongst others.
On that same day, Jermaine Dupri had a Book Party hosted by Brett Ratner. Mel B and hubby Stephen Belafonte hit up the event:
.... with Janet there for support.
Trey Songz did a taping of MTV's "Sucker Free" on October 17th. His new album "Trey Day" is currently in stores:
I've never seen much promotion for it though.
Ciara celebrated her 22nd birthday earlier this week in Japan with local artist Lexy and Young Joc who was the opening act for her concert:
WOW. She doesn't look good at all. What happened?
LOL! OK, you'll understand why I'm LOLing in a short sec. Here's a pic of Beyonce at the Ethiopian Orthodox Church where she kicked off her world tour last week Wednesday in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia:

NOW READ THE ARTICLE BELOW!!!!!!!
It's unusual for a Patriarch of the Ethiopian Orthodox Church to appeal for the second coming of a female R & B superstar whose messages have no spiritual content other than promoting the temptations and sins of our time that he condemns in his daily sermons. A short list of Beyonce Knowles' song titles are enough to reveal the fact that her songs contain no trace of gospel messages or praises to the Almighty. Crazy in Love, Naughty Girl, Get Me Bodied, Suga Mama, Beautiful Liar and The Last Great Seduction are a few among the many songs that have made Beyonce so popular around the world. When Beyonce was in Addis Ababa last week for the so-called millennium celebration to entertain the rich in poverty stricken city, she was obviously shocked to get a fan from an unexpected corner. No wonder! The Patriarch of the Ethiopian Orthodox Church, His Holiness Abune Paulos, not only gave her a gift but also requested her to come again to Ethiopia to spread her message. Any devout Christian may consider the story itself a fictitious blasphemy but he did it on the record in front of local and international media.
Hehehe. I guess she had the Patriarch pussy-whipped after failing to maintain himself of coming in contact with the Crazy In Love video. It makes a man do things, unholy or not. Every man is human. You can see why a man of holy and unholiness stature would have such a fascination with the sexy singer.
Lastly, here's a brand new Amerie photoshoot:
