Alicia will be doing a lot of promo in the lead up to the release of her new album As I Am (out Nov 13th). She will perform on Saturday Night Divas on October 28th. The show will be taped in London and aired on ITV1 in the UK. Saturday Night Divas is going to be great because X-Factor winner Leona Lewis will also be performing on the show. There is even rumours that Mariah Carey will perform at the event as well but Alicia and Leona are definitely confirmed acts. It is basically a stellar line-up of female performers for a glamorous concert to celebrate the conclusion of Breast Cancer Awareness month. Some of the world's most successful and acclaimed singers will perform a repertoire of show-stopping hits and classic songs. And you know you'll be able to watch the performances on Toya's World next week.
Amerie attended and performed at the Girlguiding UK Big Gig at Manchester Arena this past weekend:
Amerie was making the most of her 2-million dollar legs as she was sporting little more than a pair of six-inch heels. At the show, she performed hit singles Take Control and 1 Thing at the event solely organised for the UK Girlguiding organization. Whilst cavorting across the stage in tiny white hotpants and red blouse, Amerie strived to pop a sexy dance routine to an appreciative UK audience. I guess her legs are her only temple. She looked great though.
Mel B and hubby Stephen Belafonte arrived at the 5th Annual Best In Drag Show fundraiser for AIDS at the Orpheum Theater on October 14, 2007 in Los Angeles, California:
Her implants are ridiculous! It has also been reported today that Mel is set for a court showdown with former lover Eddie Murphy - on the eve of the Spice Girls' first reunion performance. Apparently, Mel will find out how much maintenance he'll pay for their daughter Angel Iris in Los Angeles on November 14. The next day the Spices are booked for a Victoria's Secret fashion gig prelude to their world tour. I am so over the Eddie and Mel saga. I think she's milked it for all it's worth and should just move on. As long as he's doing his bit financially. You can't force a man to know or love his child. The whole world knows he's a dog and that's just something he has to live with.
Anyway, last week, Keyshia Cole put in an appearance on MTV's MiTrl:
I hate that blonde hair sooooo damn much. It doesn't look good. Carot top was a better look for her.
Anyway, here's a couple more backstage flips of the BET Hip Hop Awards:
Again, Keyshia Cole, producer Polow Da Don and singer Mario Barrett all put in appearances.
And speaking of Mario, here's a clip where he talks about his mother's drug addiction on his MTV special:
The show airs October 20th at 1:00pm EST on MTV. His new album GO drops 27th November. The album is hot by the way. CLICK HERE to read my album review.
Yesterday, I posted pictures of Rihanna leaving a tattoo parlour in New York City and her tattoo has now been unveiled:
What an ugly ass tattoo. Is it a penis? It is a snake? Nope, it's a guitar. A badly drawn one too. Whoever did that needs to be shot. It looks like it was done in black ink. I know it's a guitar but the artist didn't do a good job at all.
Cutie Chris Brown was spotted out and about in LA last week:
