Stokley Williams ran down Mint Condition’s successful discography during an interview with VladTV, and he revealed that the first album was actually the demo that a lot of labels turned down. He went on to explain that “Breakin’ My Heart (Pretty Brown Eyes)” was one of their biggest hits, but all the labels kept telling them that they didn’t have one hit on the demo.

Moving along, Stokley spoke about touring with Janet Jackson and Toni Braxton, along with putting out their hit song “What Kind of Man Would I Be,” which stirred up a lot of conversation about infidelity. To hear more of what Stokley had to say, including how their fourth album didn’t do as well as the group wanted, hit the above clip.

As a young child and through adolescence, Tiffani Rose was forced to endure the mental and physical challenges of an adult. Through molestation, rape, teenage childbearing, and death, at an early age, Tiffani’s sole purpose in life became merely about day-to-day basic survival. “You don’t look like what you’ve been through,” is what Tiffani hears quite often — as if there’s a certain look or physicality one must have to have lived a life of shock, fear, pain, disappointment, crime, ups and downs, and through the grace of God — peace. In this book, Tiffani tells a raw and uncut story of her life. She takes you on an emotional roller coaster unlike any other. Her bounce back is unfathomable. So strap in, and get ready for the ride!

Article Image: Toronto Councillor Urges Feds to Look Into Beyonce's Ties to Black Panthers

Despite the message behind “Formation,” many Super Bowl viewers weren’t pleased with Beyonce’s performance as they felt she promoted violence towards police – some even plan to have an “Anti-Beyonce” rally next week in New York City. Bey has yet to comment on the backlash she’s received, but she may want to speak up now that one Toronto councillor is looking to have her banned from entering Canada entirely.

Ward 39 councillor Jim Karygiannis believes Beyonce may have some sort of connection to The Black Panther Party after Sunday night’s Halftime Show. “If someone wore bullets and supported (a radical group) here, they would not be welcomed in the United States — that’s for sure,” he stated after requesting the help of the federal government. Though he doesn’t plan to ban Beyonce based off her tribute to The BPP, if he finds out her team supports them financially, “she or some of them could be found not eligible to enter the country as others in the past have faced.”

Karygiannis concluded by saying “We should not be promoting gun culture or anti-police sentiments.”

*All Kelly Rowland could do was sit and be mortified by the words coming out of the mouth of her longtime collaborator and choreographer, Frank Gatson, as they promoted their upcoming BET series “Chasing Destiny.”

Before things went left, Rowland wanted everyone to know that the program is NOT a reality competition show.

“I’d like to make that very clear. You can jot that down on your notepads,” she told journalists at the Television Critics Association Winter Press Tour on Wednesday.


kelly rowland tca2As previously reported, BET bills the series as “a quest to find the next big female superstar group to make their mark in the dog-eat-dog music industry.” The singing hopefuls “will vie their way to stardom with recording mogul Rowland helping them to find their voice as entertainers.”

Riding shotgun on the series is industry veteran Gatson, who assists Rowland in her quest and will serve as the group’s choreographer. He also served, perhaps unwittingly, as the comic relief for the“Chasing Destiny” panel.

Gatson has been the creative director for both Beyonce and Destiny’s Child, and has choreographed videos and live performances for the likes of Rowland, Michael Jackson, TLC, Jennifer Lopez, Toni Braxton, and most notably, En Vogue.

Here’s Gatson Wednesday on En Vogue being better singers than Destiny’s Child:

“I always thought En Vogue can sing better than Destiny’s Child. [Kelly] doesn’t agree. Those four girls all were lead singers. In Destiny’s Child, they were all lead singers, too, but in En Vogue, they were just amazing because they were put together organically, and I think that’s the thing that’s going to happen with this show.”

“Well, Destiny’s Child was put together organically as well,” Kelly said.

“Okay. You’re right. She’s right,” said Gatson. “I worked with Destiny’s Child, but it’s just one of those things. You don’t want to say who is best and who is not better. I am really upset at En Vogue right now because I was going to get wooden floors with en Vogue, and they broke up, and it pissed me off. So now with Destiny’s Child, I’m so glad. They’re the type of group that never broke up. They’re the type of group that are sisters, they’re friends, they’re professional, and they’re nice. And that’s why they make so much f**king money. You understand? Because a lot of people think that show business is about being an A hole. It’s not. It’s about being sweet. And when you’re sweet, you can last. You understand? Patti LaBelle, that’s a really nice lady. Beyoncé, come on. There’s a reason she’s big. There’s a reason that Kelly thank you, Kelly, for allowing me to be on this damn show.”

The entire panel consisted of Gatson saying something out of pocket, and Rowland trying to clean it up – considering they were in front a bunch of tweeting journalists.

Below, Kelly is asked how her Destiny’s Child cohorts were able to stay so close after their breakup…and Gatson jumping in with his random thought about original Destiny’s Child members LaTavia and LeToya, and how the syncing of women’s menstrual cycles within girl groups is “magical”:

Plarizing R&B singer R. Kelly has been literally begging people to buy his album, The Buffet, but this week his aggressive promo tour apparently went left.

Monday, Kelly made an appearance on HuffPost Live to take part in a Q&A featuring questions from Twitter.

Given how merciless Black Twitter has been to the 48-year-old crooner in the past – using the social media platform to give ‘fans’ access to him seemed like a recipe for disaster; and it didn’t disappoint.

Out the gate, the segment seemed to focus on touchy subjects such as low album sales and lack of public support. However, when asked if he thought past allegations of sexual relations with minors made it hard for people to stand behind his music – Kelly became visibly defensive.

“I say f**k that,” he responded to a tweet that read, “Would I let R. Kelly babysit my daughter? F**k no.”

Eventually the hot seat become too much for Kelz and he walked off the live broadcast.

“I’m not perfect,” he said in parting, “but I’m perfectly me.”

Check out the tense exchange above.
