Pharrell and Oprah Pharrell and Oprah

During his interview on “Oprah’s Prime”, Pharrell Williams talks about a lot of things from his personal life, latest album, up to the highlights of his career.  On the interview, anyone can ask the singer any questions.  Aside from being a singer, Pharrell is also a songwriter and a producer.  His mother was a teacher while his father works as a handyman.

When it comes to his fame and being successful, Pharrell revealed:

“It’s overwhelming in the sense that like, I know that there’s an equation for it. I know it’s not me. I know it’s not my doing, so that’s overwhelming. That’s when it hit me like, okay, if the people don’t vote for the songs or request the songs or share or sing them or have any kind of reaction to them, then they’re just songs. So when that happens for you, you recognize all the different parts of the universe that conspire to get you there. That’s what’s overwhelming but humbling, though, at the same time, because I realize I could be the guy with the demo. For some reason the people hoisted me so high I know what the top of clouds look like.”

“I think it was my environment. It was my natural propensities. And thirdly and most importantly, the people that I attribute most of my success to are those people who recognize those propensities in me.”

Pharrell also talks about his hit single, “Happy”, he said:

“With ‘Happy,’ they wanted to show that the meanest man in the world, someone who is as equally mad as the Grinch, could be the happiest person in the world when it came to love. [...] The chords came first because I wrote what feels happy to me and that took me to church. Church is…they want to lift you up. Then the words was just kinda like, ‘Clap along if you feel…’ and I was like, uh oh. I didn’t know it was gonna be anything by the way.”

She further sings:

 

“If I didn’t know no better I would think you were flirting

Whispering them sweet nothings in my ear

Giving me excuses just to get up in here

Now, Boy you talking good sh-t

And I swear you could get it

I’m a good girl, got a thing about my image

Would give it to you but I’m sorry

I’m just not anybody”

R&B star Ne-Yo explained about the comments that he made with regards to the unfair treatment that Chris Brown received from the U.S. authorities.  Ne-Yo asserted that despite the fact that Brown commited some “serious mistakes” but he has been “paying for them”.

According to the So Sick hitmaker, Brown received unfair treatment due to his star status.  Ne-Yo said:

“The system likes to make an example of celebrities, that’s all it is. Because he (Brown) is who he is they’re making an example of him. It’s not right but it is what it is.”

Big Sean and Naya Rivera Big Sean and Naya Rivera

Yesterday, we reported that celebrity couple Big Sean and Naya Rivera called off their engagement.  Now the details of the split have surfaced.  According to sources, Naya Rivera was too controlling over the relationship with Big Sean to the point that she had jealous rages.  It seems that the Glee star is very insecure in the relationship.  During an argument Naya would tell Sean, “If you don’t listen to what I say, I’ll ruin your career.”

TMZ revealed:

“We’re told she was suspicious whenever Sean was with other women and  would work herself up into jealous rages … once breaking an expensive lamp during a rampage in his home.”

“We’re also told Big Sean and Naya went to couples counseling — which apparently worked because Sean realized how much he HATED being a couple … and decided to get the hell out.”

The sources further added that Naya was not happy when Sean called off the engagement.  This could be the reason why she tweeted that Sean stole a Rolex from her house.  She tweeted:

“@bigsean stealing rolexes from a lady’s house now.  Maybe cuz I’m on Glee and making more money or something.”

Is the tweet real?

Porsha Williams Porsha Williams

During the Sunday’s episode of “Real Housewives of Atlanta,” Porsha Williams was trying to record a song entitled “Perfectly Worthless.”  According to its producer, Pierre Medor, Porsha failed to do justice to the song so he decided to give it to somebody else.  Pierre claimed that the song that he produced was stolen by Porsha for television.

According to Pierre’s rep:

“In the business more than one artist will record the same song hoping for the right outcome, as was the case with Perfectly Worthless. Porsha Stewart wanted a song, Pierre Medor wrote and produced this song in its entirety. Not having any previous point of reference for Porsha, we initially recorded the song for the purpose of determining her vocal abilities and how they would fit with this particular song; it was quickly determined that this song wasn’t the best match for her, so we chose not to sell her the song and notified her management of our decision.”

When ‘Perfectly Worthless’ was aired on television, the producer was completely surprised.  Now he is planning to make the suitable legal procedures.

Did Porsha steal the song?

Beyonce Beyonce

Beyoncé’s cover on Out Magazine is her first magazine cover for the year 2014.  Inside the magazine, Bey discussed her latest album Beyoncé.  The singer revealed that her music can empower all sorts of individuals not just the ladies.  She also thanked her team, the Parkwood Entertainment, for making this album a hit.

What can she say about the sexual liberation conversation which she included in her latest album?  Bey said:

“I’d like to believe that my music opened up that conversation. There is unbelievable power in ownership, and women should own their sexuality. There is a double standard when it comes to sexuality that still persists. Men are free and women are not. That is crazy. The old lessons of submissiveness and fragility made us victims. Women are so much more than that. You can be a businesswoman, a mother, an artist, and a feminist—whatever you want to be—and still be a sexual being. It’s not mutually exclusive.”

Beyonce Beyonce

“[It was] much freer than anything I’d done in the past. We really just tried to trust our instincts, embrace the moment, and keep it fun.” As an illustration she singled out the video for “Drunk in Love,” a fan favorite. “We were in Miami for Jay’s concert, and it was just the two of us, on the beach, amazing weather, and one outfit! It’s beautiful in its simplicity. If you want something to feel real and urgent, you can’t overthink it.”

It has been a while since top model Chanel Iman and A$AP have been dating.  Now they are engaged and will be tying the knot soon.  According to a source, Chanel and A$AP have been secretly engaged for sometime now.

A$AP once dated rapper Iggy Azalea.  During that time Iggy was so in love with A$AP to the point that she obtained a tribute tattoo of A$AP’s name on her finger.  After they separated, she put an “X” on his name.  At present, the two singers have moved on but Iggy does not have any plans of removing his name completely. Last year Iggy said:

“I f**king loved him, I know he loved me too. I felt like he was somebody I could count on who loved me for being me, and I don’t want to forget that.”

Iggy and A$AP Iggy and A$AP

“I would sacrifice a quarter of a pinky (finger) for those memories. That’s why I didn’t cross it out all the way, because if I’d covered it up all the way, that says I’m embarrassed. You shouldn’t be ashamed of the trials of becoming an adult.”

Would she consider covering it completely?
