Gosh there has been a lot of magazine covers being released this week. Queen Latifah covers the upcoming issue of Upscale magazine and addresses rumors about her sexuality. She looks really good on the cover and she’s wearing her queen collection makeup from cover girl (if not then she should be hell she endorses it). Queen Latifah also speaks on social networking and how she’s not really big on it. iLike 2 consider Queen Latifah as my celebrity mom in my head. Whatever her orientation may be, it doesn’t matter. She’s a very well accomplished black woman and who she choses to sleep with is her business.
Here’s a little eye candy for u guy readers out there. Nicole Scherzinger covers the July issue of Maxim magazine. iThought it was the end for Nicole. When the Pussycat Dolls album Doll Dominationdebuted with 79,000 copies in the 1st week, iKnew right then and there that the Pussycat Dolls was gonna end. Well iWas right…but at the same time iWas wrong. Every1 left but Nicole and now there are 4 new girls in the group. Not only that, Nicole participated in the recent season of the hit ABC show Dancing With The Stars and won ! So things are starting 2 look up for Nicole and while her solo career may not take off the way she wants too, she’s a very pretty girl and a skilled dancer so expect to see a lot more of Nicole this year and for years to come…again.
The numbers are in. While the Glee Casts new album debuts at number 1 on the Billboard 200 Charts with 158,135 copies, and even the Twilight Saga: Eclipsesoundtrack debuted at number 2 with 155,207 copies, Christina Aguilera’s album Bionicdebuts at number 3 with only 111,838 copies. It’s not really that bad but the record company had high expectations for the album. iHad my doubts since the failure of Not Myself Tonightbut iHad to remind myself that Christina has a very loyal fan base. Well obviously that fan base is either taking their time to purchase the album, or they just aren’t feeling it. iMentioned last week during my review that Christina has tried something new and while it’s good to reinvent yourself, it just doesn’t work for her. She gave up her slow mid tempo pop songs for upbeat pop electronica songs that just don’t fit her. The 2nd single Woohoo that features Nicki Minaj has debuted at number 79 on the Hot 100, and it doesn’t seem like it will pass the number 60 mark if u ask me. Christina is really at her best with her ballads. If she releases one of the 5 that she has on her album, not only will it help the album sell, but it will let fans know that she hasn’t reinvented herself much; nevertheless the album will still reach platinum status in due time regardless of how the fans receive the album.
