Soul Train Controversy! Karyn White SPEAKS On Soul Train Awards Debacle. Says she wasn’t even CALLED!
Sunday night during the Babyface tribute on the Soul Train Awards, Fantasia belted out the LaFace penned track "Superwoman." Apparently, we weren't the only ones thinking to ourselves, "Was Karyn White busy?" Well obviously she wasn’t
We've been singing "Superwoman. Singer Karyn White was It back in the late 80's early 90’s. So when Fantasia hollered through wonderfully belted out the track during Babyface's tribute while the man himself backed her on piano, we were a bit confused. Yes, Fanny can SANG. But damn, would it have killed BET/Centric/Soul Train to ask the person who originally sang it to perform? Especially since they found time to get so many other throwback artists like After 7, Cameo, Tevin Campbell and others who were there.
Well, Karyn was equally confused. The fab 50-year-old and looks AMAZING! took to her Facebook page to address what went down.
She says she was inundated with phone calls and messages asking if she was OK because she wasn't in Vegas to perform at the Awards. Karyn revealed she was never called by BET, Centric or any Soul Train reps to come out and perform. After she gave major kudos to Fantasia for the fabulous job that she did, she said she herself is still on the music scene and actually just released a new album while on a new tour.
Bottom line, she would have loved to perform her song "Superwoman," but "doesn't know" why she wasn't called. Even though she "made it a hit." Bloop.
Peep the video:

Still love Karyn! For the record ENJOY THE SONG FROM KARYN!
#RhoA: Can we talk about The Cynthia VS Porsha BATTLE!
Things got super heated between Cynthia Bailey and Porsha Williams on Sunday’s episode of “Real Housewives of Atlanta.” In case you were watching the 2015 Soul Train Music Awards, I’ve got the latest on what happened on “RHOA.” And apparently, ish went totally left as the ladies tried to enjoy a day sailing on a boat. Surprise surprise. In true “RHOA” style, two of the ladies exchanged words and then things got physical. Yes, they're still doing this in 2015.
Castmate Kenya Moore scheduled a" fun" girls’ day -- which she called Cynthia's bachelorette party -- where the ladies would party it up on a boat to try and cheer Cynthia Bailey up in the midst of her marital troubles. But Cynthia got way more she bargained for.
Cynthia and Porsha got INTO it and things escalated quickly where hands were thrown. Yep, Porsha was involved in yet another physical altercation on the show.
It started when Porsha came over to Cynthia to find out what she did that upset her. The two had apparently been calling each other “b*tch” in a playful manner all day, but the last time Porsha used it towards Cynthia, the model mom felt some type of way. Could it have been the drinks? The stress over her and Peter's crumbling marriage? Who knows.
Next thing you know, hands are flying in each other’s faces, they’re calling each other names and then these chicks are BRAWLIN’! shade was being thrown (by you know who) within the first 30 seconds of the chicks stepping foot on the boat. And it spread to the rest of the group and went downhill from there.
HMMMMM, shade was being thrown (by you know who) within the first 30 seconds of the chicks stepping foot on the boat. And it spread to the rest of the group and went downhill from there.I predict another Porsha mugshot coming in 5...4...3...2...

Kobe Bryant Announces His Retirement
It's the end of an era. LA Lakers Kobe Bryant announces that this season will be his last… Bryant, who is struggling through the worst season of his illustrious 20-year career with the Los Angeles Lakers, said in a piece posted on the Players' Tribune website that "I'm ready to let [basketball] go."
The decision was not totally unexpected as the 37-year-old Lakers guard has been plagued by injuries in recent seasons and had recently said he was considering retirement.
"I can't love you obsessively for much longer. This season is all I have left to give," wrote Bryant. "My heart can take the pounding, my mind can handle the grind, but my body knows it's time to say goodbye."
Bryant, a surefire first-ballot Hall of Famer who is third on the NBA's all-time scoring list, has a career-worst 31.5 shooting percentage through his first 12 games of the season on a Lakers team that has the second worst record in the league.
Named Kobe by his parents after they spotted the popular Japanese cut of beef on a restaurant menu shortly before his birth, Bryant is now a five-times NBA champion having won titles in 2000, 2001, 2002, 2009 and 2010.
He was drafted out of high school with the 13th overall pick in the 1996 NBA Draft by the Charlotte Hornets but was traded shortly after the Lakers for Serbian Vlade Divac.
He has appeared in 17 All-Star games, was named the Most Valuable Player for the 2007-08 regular season and landed MVP honors in the 2009 and 2010 Finals when he led the Lakers to consecutive championships.

New Hip Hop Music: Fabolous – ‘Doin’ It Well’ (Ft. Nicki Minaj & Trey Songz)
Fabolous links with Nicki Minaj and Trey Songz on his new track “Doin’ It Well,” from his latest mixtape Summertime Shootout.
After Fab kicks off the track, which samples LL Cool J‘s ’90s hit “Doin’ It,” Nicki follows up with her verse. “Body language is the only talk he fluent in. He knew it was goin’ down when he flew me in,” she raps. “Anything that I got on he wanna do me in. Now all these nondescript b*tches wanna do me in.” And Trigga holds down the hook with some explicit lyrics.
Last week, both Fabolous and Trey released new mixtapes. Trey’s is entitled To Whom It May Concern.

IT’S OFFICIAL! Adele’s 25 Makes History With 3.38 Million First Week Copies Sold
Her World Domination continues! Adele has shown the world that a four-year hiatus was more than enough time for her fans to go bananas over her new material.
Not only did her single “Hello” shatter records by becoming the first song to sell more than one million digital copies within a week of its release, her third studio album, 25, has just witnessed the biggest first week debut ever with 3.38 million in sales.
It’s official: Adele 25 album sold 3.38 million copies in its first week in the U.S., according to Nielsen Music. That’s the largest single sales week for an album since Nielsen began tracking point-of-sale music purchases in 1991. 25 is the first album to sell more than 3 million copies in a week in Nielsen history, and only the second to surpass 2 million sold in a single frame.
Nielsen Music’s tracking week runs from Friday to Thursday each week, so 25’s opening frame ended at the close of business on Nov. 26. The new set, which is Adele’s third studio album, was released on Nov. 20 through XL Recordings/Columbia Records.
Earlier in the week, 25 beat the previous single-week sales record, held by *NSYNC’s No Strings Attached, when it launched with 2.42 million sold (in the week ending March 26, 2000). 25 is also just the 20th album to sell at least a million copies in a week. In addition, 25 is already the biggest selling album of 2015 (surpassing the 1.8 million sold of Taylor Swift’s 1989).
25 will debut atop the Billboard 200 albums chart dated Dec. 12, marking the singer/songwriter’s second No. 1. The Billboard 200 chart ranks the most popular albums of the week based on multi-metric consumption, which includes traditional album sales, track equivalent albums (TEA) and streaming equivalent albums (SEA). The top 10 of the chart is scheduled to be announced on Nov. 29, along with 25’s total consumption figure for the week.
25 follows Adele’s 21, which racked up 24 nonconsecutive weeks atop the Billboard 200 (the longest run at No. 1 for a woman in the chart’s history) and has sold 11.2 million in the U.S. It’s the 10th-largest selling album in Nielsen history.
It should be noted that the album was wasn’t featured on any streaming services such as Apple Music, Spotify or TIDAL, which surprisingly increased the desire for fans to buy it even though it had leaked before its release date.
OOOPS! Tim Tebow Dumped By Olivia Culpo For Not Putting Out
He’s one of the hottest hunks in the country, but Tim Tebow just couldn’t satisfy the needs of former Miss Universe Olivia Culpo.
Due to his widely-publicized Christian belief in chastity before marriage, the 28-year-old former NFL stud refused to have sex with his 23-year-old lady and she finally had enough and kicked him to the curb.
A Culpo insider told press, “He was really into her. He was sending her love letters and cute notes and professing his love for her. She had to break up with him because she just couldn't handle it. He still hits her up, but she just can't deal with the sex thing. He's pretty adamant about it, I guess.”
You might've thought they were bluffing, but Coldplay really did get Beyoncé on their new album (out Friday), and here's the new song to prove it. The band premiered "Hymn for the Weekend" on Annie Mac's BBC show, and if you were expecting a gospel-infused party jam, you're in luck! "The original words were 'drinks on me,' but we were like, 'Chris, you can't get away with that,'" bassist Guy Berryman explains. So, instead, they had Beyoncé sound like a one-woman symphony channeling the child of destiny to sing "so drink from me, drink from me when I was so thirsty" and other heavenly, nonsensical things. It's like if "Drunk in Love" were reimagined for Sunday service, so there's no telling what they had Blue Ivy do.

‘ITCHY & SCRATCHY’
That’s a poor attempt of covering up your panties. Works about as well as a 3 year old that hides behind see-through drapes during Hide-N-Seek.
HAVE A GREAT DAY ALL!
