|Ashanti and her mama Tina attended the Lawman Music Conference on Oct 18th, which took place at the W Hotel in Newark, CA:
I previously reported how Ashanti's new video for new single After The Club (Hey Baby) had already been shot. Well that was just a rumour because the video hasn't been shot at all. I hope she changes the single, or comes out with a 2nd one since she has more time to work on the new album (as previously reported The Declaration won't drop until early 2008. A tentative release date has yet to be confirmed). It's not that I don't like it but I was hoping for something fresh. I certainly wasn't expecting her song to be a straight jack of Diddy and Keyshia Cole's 'Last Night'. But then again, this is Ashanti we talking about, the Queen of sampling so really it shouldn't come as no surprise.
Yesterday, Letoya Luckett attended the Hip-Hop Summit Action Network Presents the "Get Your Money Right" Financial Literacy and Empowerment Tour in Miami:
The recent housing market crash which appears to be affecting the economy, jobs, student loans and consumer confidence are all down to the move which sees young people needing some sound financial advice on how to best manage their money and navigate through this volatile economic environment: The Hip-Hop Summit Action Network and title sponsor Chrysler Financial took great pleasure bringing the Financial Empowerment Summit to Florida Memorial University's A. Chester Robinson Athletic Center at 15800 Northwest 42 Ave. in Miami Gardens, Fla. The program took place from 1:30-3:30 p.m.
Russell Simmons emphasized, "With the proper education and information about financial literacy, a young person today can work hard and still be successful, even during the current economic environment. Hip-hop is about creating and maximizing opportunity. It is about transforming the American dream into a living reality. Our "Get Your Money Right" Hip-Hop Summits are about helping young people empower themselves with the basic tools of financial empowerment."
The Hip-Hop Summit on Financial Empowerment is a grassroots effort to help engage young people in discussions about the importance of personal finance. The "Get Your Money Right" agenda features an interactive panel discussion on financial literacy, including such topics as the basics of banking, repairing and understanding credit scores, asset and wealth management, vehicle financing and home ownership.
Ne-yo and Swizz Beatz was also there to join HSAN Co-Chairmen Russell Simmons and Dr. Benjamin Chavis in Miami:
Letoya's buzz single 'Swagger' should be hitting the Net by next week, so I really look forwards to that.
Nicole Scherzinger was spotted at Movida Nightclub with her bodyguards:
To say she's suppose to be letting her hair down after all the strenuous promotion, someone certainly doesn't look happy. The big black dude in the last pic, DAMN, look at his fucking nose. He looks like that ugly actor from The Green Mile movie, whatever his name is.
Anyway, here are more pictures of Cassie and Lauren London at that Sean Jean female clothing launch:
These ones see them pictured with the man himself Diddy who is the mastermind behind it all, as well as Irv Gotti. Is Diddy actually checking out Lauren? This man will NEVER change. No wonder Kim left his ass. He should be taking care of his 5 kids including the secret daughter that just popped out of the woodworks lately.
