“I’m happy Mariah’s there, she’s a singer, she knows how to judge…” #shade

We don’t think J was trying to throw that slug at Nicki Minaj but at the same time, she herself is a singer, like Mariah… It just makes more sense for Mariah to be there…..

While the videos for “Pour It Up” and “Stay” are yet to arrive, both songs are doing well in there respective markets an “Unapologetic” remains among the charts top sellers! #RihannaNavy

Apparently Frank Ocean Was Called A “Faggot” Before The Fight With Chris Brown!!

Posted in BITCHASSNESS, CHRIS BROWN, FRANK OCEAN, NEWS, POPULAR MUSIC, R&B, trueclefmusic, TRUECLEFMUSIC.COM with tags , , , on February 6, 2013 by RJDAMONARCH

frank no grammys

More then a week later, the story and it’s details are still unfolding.. Apparently Chris or a member of his entourage referred to Frank as a “faggot”… This prompted Frank to fire back with the Rihanna comment that sent Chris over the edge

TMZ/FOX News report the following:

Openly gay singer Frank Ocean was called a “fa**ot” by Brown or one of his cohorts, before Brown punched him in the face and threatened to shoot him during an alleged brawl last week. Drama ensued as, according to Ocean’s statement to police, two of the singer’s posse jumped in to help Brown , pushing him into a corner and attempting to kick him. Ocean reportedly refused medical treatment initially, but was later taken to hospital.

Earlier this week, a sheriff’s rep announced that the investigation over the assault will soon be closed without charges filed, and Ocean also released a statement on his Tumblr page to declare this he forgives Brown and simply wants “peace.”

A rep for Brown did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Chris Brown Gets Caught Lying About Community Service Attendance…

Posted in BITCHASSNESS, CHRIS BROWN, NEWS, POPULAR MUSIC, R&B, trueclefmusic with tags , , on February 6, 2013 by RJDAMONARCH

chris trouble

F**** RIDICULOUS!! Seems none of the rules apply to Chris Brown these days… FOX News reports the following:

On Tuesday, L.A. County District Attorney Jackie Lacey announced that the singer failed to provide “credible, competent or verifiable evidence” that he completed his court-ordered community service, as allegations swirl that Brown may have fabricated his documents.

On August 25, 2009 the singer was sentenced to 180 days of community labor and was granted permission to complete this order in his home state of Virginia as part of a five-year probationary for assault in the highly-publicized altercation with girlfriend, Rihanna.

But whether or not he actually fulfilled such duties is now under suspicion.

Bryan T. Norwood, the Chief of Police in Richmond, VA., wrote a letter to the judge on September 14, claiming Brown went above and beyond the call of duty and successfully completed 202 days of community service, with odd jobs including window washing and picking up trash.

But Los Angeles officials aren’t buying it.

In a motion filed by Deputy District Attorney Mary Murray, it was requested that the court decline to accept Brown’s community labor in Virginia due to what appears to be “significant discrepancies indicating at best sloppy documentation and at worst fraudulent reporting.”

Brown’s mother has also been brought into the fold of question, as the documents indicate that the rapper supposedly frequently worked at Tappahannock Children’s Center – a place where his mom was once a director and still has her own set of keys – and she submitted the times, location and types of duty Brown partook in. The detective who had been assigned to oversee his service was allegedly also told that she was not required to monitor him at the Children’s Center.

According to TMZ, Brown was on tour during some days he was listed as having been serving the community, thus it is practically impossible that he was able to do so.

The D.A. is asking that the courts not only reject Brown’s service submission, but order him to complete the days of labor in Los Angeles.

And that’s not the only violation probation concern clouding the performer.

Beyonce’s Music Sales Increase By 230% Following SuperBowl Performance!!

beyonce superbowl

Beyonce has started 2013 extremely strong; endorsements with Pepsi and H&M, a documentary with HBO, a new album coming and one of the greatest half time shows ever didn’t hurt things at all! Her music has been flying off the shelf and iTunes since Sunday’s performance!!

Billboard reports the following:

Beyonce’s Super Bowl halftime show has predictably sent sales of her music skyrocketing.

The diva headlined the Super Bowl XLVII halftime festivities in New Orleans last night (Feb. 3), where she performed eight songs and reunited with Destiny’s Child.


SUPER BOWL WEEKEND!

Industry sources suggest that in the week ending Feb. 3, Beyonce’s digital album sales jumped by over 230%. Meanwhile, those of her group Destiny’s Child soared by more than 600%. That latter increase is inordinately large as it includes sales of the trio’s brand new “Love Songs” compilation, released last Tuesday. The set features one new recording, “Nuclear.”

The album sales gains are also aided by discount pricing in both the iTunes and Amazon MP3 stores. The former discounted key earlier titles from Beyonce and Destiny’s Child to $7.99 while the latter marked them down to between $5 and $7.99.

In terms of digital song sales, Beyonce’s grew by an estimated 85% while Destiny Child’s rose by over 300%.

Beyonce’s biggest selling song of the week was “Halo,” which closed her eight-song halftime set. The biggest Destiny’s Child song of the week, according to early data, looks to be “Say My Name” (which was not part of the halftime medley). Two Destiny’s Child tunes were performed at the Super Bowl: “Bootylicious” and “Independent Women (Part 1).”

The week’s official Nielsen SoundScan sales figures for Beyonce and Destiny’s Child will be released on Wednesday (Feb. 6). Further impact from the halftime show will be felt next week, after a full seven days’ worth of sales are registered post-game.

Frank Ocean Will Not Press Charges Against Chris Brown, Despite Being Urged To Do So By Jay-Z & Others!!

frank ocean tee

It appears Frank has opted to let it go… He’s recently being quoted as saying he’d like “forgiveness and peace” out of the whole situation, the fight that unfolded in a L.A parking lot, outside a studio where he and some members of Odd Future encountered Chris Brown and his flying monkeys…

He’s better then us, would have put Chris Brown UNDER THE JAIL! It appears with enough money and enough resources, the law can be bent, even broken…

The new artist is up for 6 Grammys and will attend the ceremony after all as previous reported…

b half time show

In case you somehow missed Beyonce’s half time show performance lastnite!

We loved it but think it could have been so much more then this and ultimately, it’s overshadowed by Madonna’s 2012 performance…

We also were really disappointed that there was no new music…………

“The Mrs Carter Show” is the title of her new World Tour but the name and the imagery could hint at the direction of the album and it’s own name… French royalty is what she’s giving!

B’s also expected to make a special announcement following her Superbowl Halftime Show tomorrow evening! It’s official B season!!

frank ocean grammys

YES!!! It was widely reported that the brawl with Chris Brown had left Frank too beat up to perform or even attend the Grammy Ceremony but apparently that has changed!

Reps for the Grammy Academy confirmed that Frank will attend the show and will be performing. He’s up for 6 honors, including the prestigious “Album of The Year” nom!

We’re glad he’s didn’t let Chris take this away from him and we’re looking forward to more information surfacing about him pressing charges against that a**!!
