|Ashanti had a 27th birthday bash held in Atlanta at Jermaine Dupri's club and restaurant Cafe Dupri. The singer turned 27 on October 13 and her boyfriend Nelly was at the bash to help her celebrate. These two really were loved up:
Her new video 'Hey Baby' (After The Club) is set to premiere at the end of this month.
Here is the cover art for the new single:
She looks amazing. She is reminding me of vintage Janet Jackson during her IF era. The song goes for adds today and is now released on i-Tunes. I guess a b'day isn't the only thing Ashanti has to celebrate. Mary J Blige won't be pushing back her album Growing Pains to 11th December after all, and it doesn't look like Mariah will be dropping either. So Ashanti no longer has to worry about any hardcore competition to stand in her way when she releases new album The Declaration.
Ginuwine celebrated his 37th birthday yesterday by playing a concert in London (his birthday was on the 15th October):
He is working it. Usher and Justin Timberlake, take notes. It seems he has finally gotten over being duped over signing that fraudulent non-existant recording contract. There have been so many R&B birthdays in the month October! Another R&B singer who celebrated her 40th birthday last week was Toni Braxton. Her birthday was on 10th October. Mya celebrated her 28th on Oct 5th. And Usher celebrated his 29th on Oct 14th.
Janet Jackson accompanied her beau Jermaine Dupri at his his 'Young, Rich, And Dangerous' book release party last night:
To get the lowdown on JD's new book, CLICK HERE. He tells his life story and how he came by the good fortunes that he has today. Maybe I'll pop into Waterstones and stand up and read the only chapter as to how he got it on with Janet Jackson. But I can't really see anything remotedly interesting that will have me reaching out to read the whole book. I anticipate Superhead's book though. The first book was fireworks. And why hasn't Janet written HER book yet? Now THAT would be worth reading gold.
Anyway, Rihanna visited Z100 radio station yesterday:
Head on over to ULTIMATE-RIHANNA to see more pictures. She was there to do some promo. As already reported on Toya's World, Rihanna and Josh Hartnett were spotted getting cozy at NYC club Pink Elephant last week after co-hosting on TRL. However, her reps are denying they are dating. According to friends, they were just hanging out. Stay tuned.
