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.”

Do you like “Happy”?

“In season three, Tamar works to expand beyond just being a successful recording artist, performer and mother. She is capitalizing on her hugely successful album drop by planning her first solo tour and working on a second album, while also beginning a new gig as a talk show co-host and trying to explore feature film work and developing a project for daytime TV.”

“In addition to following Tamar’s journey, the cameras will capture a communication struggle between her and her husband, Vince.”

“As Tamar’s empire expands, with Vince at the helm, they realize serious communication issues are threatening everything they’ve worked so hard for, both at home and professionally.’”

Will season three be more interesting?

The Game and Tiffany Cambridge The Game and Tiffany Cambridge

It was previously reported that The Game allegedly beat up his ex-fiancee, Tiffney Cambridge, during an agreement.  After this incident things were not getting any better especially with regards to co-parenting arrangement.  The Marrying the Game reality star revealed he has not seen his two youngest kids, Justice and Cali, because Tiffney refused.  To express his sentiments, The Game posted a message on Instagram:

“Doing the best I can not to break.. But it’s funny how someone you’ve done so much for can be so ugly & cruel as to keep my children away from me vindictively because I’ve decided to move on with my life. I love all 3 of my kids more than life itself & it’s one thing to keep me away from them.. & them away from me but @harlemcarontaylor hasn’t seen his younger brother or sister in a month & just texted me “Dad, how come Justice can’t come to my house” & I have to lie to him because he’s to young to understand the real reason why. I know they ask about me, I know they love me & I know they miss me as much as I miss them but were not allowed to see each other & for what ??? As if I haven’t been there for them everyday since the day they were born…. They are the only reason I care about breathing another day on earth… They are the sole reason I have become a better person… They are the reason I give back, the reason I help people & the reason I wake up everyday with a smile on my face. Most importantly…”

The Game and his sons The Game and his sons

“They are MY CHILDREN & we deserve to be in each other’s lives forever. What kind of person would get in the middle of someone’s devoted fatherhood when there are countless women out here that are raising there children on there own with no one to help. You would think a father that loves his children the way I do would be the least bit appreciated & not have to beg someone to see his own children. I have worked so hard at being a good parent only to have it taken away by someone who cares not about me, nor the welfare of our children but only about themselves. All of this just so you can keep me away from Justice on his birthday. What lie y’all gone tell em’ when his Daddy ain’t there ? Like I have been the past 6 birthdays ? The past 6 Christmas’s ? The past 6 years of a sons life whom got his name from a father that patiently awaited his arrival here into this world ??? & Cali….. I’m not gone even start.. I will end this by saying…. Daddy loves you…. Misses you… & will always be here no matter what happens !!!! I am a REAL FATHER.”

Should Tiffney allow the rapper to see their children?

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?

Oprah Oprah

Oprah looks so fabulous on the cover of the May 2014 issue of O Magazine.  This is just a proof that age is just a number.  The theme of the new issue is “How To Love The Skin You’re In.”  Despite the fact that Lady O is already 60 years old, she still looks beautiful and sexy.  On the cover, Winfrey wore a royal purple dress created by Vicky Tiel of Carms Couture Designs.  Inside the magazine, Oprah revealed the most challenging part of aging:

“I’m not one to get hung up on numbers but if you want to say 60 is the new 40, I’ll take that. You can be and do whatever you want, thanks to exercise and hair color. Hair color. The greatest invention of all time for women. Thank you, Miss Clairol.”

Oprah Oprah

What are Oprah’s thoughts about the best and the worst factors about growing older?  She said:

“The absolute best part about aging is being free and able to do whatever you want. There’s nothing better than that. The hardest part is really recognizing the time that you’ve wasted and the things that you worried about that really didn’t matter. You regret the time that was wasted.’”

The designer of Kandi’s gown, Reco Chapple, revealed how he created the Swarovski crystal-covered gown worn by the reality star.  He said:

“Actually at first I was a bit mad because people in her camp did not want me to make it. Kandi explained that she was comfortable with working with me. She decided to go with me as the designer and I was honored![...]We used a power mesh nude illusion material for the foundation which came from NYC. The ostrich feathers were flown in from China and the Swarovski crystals were flown in from India. She didn’t wear a veil but her tiara was custom made from Kelvin Russell.”

“We worked on Kandi’s gown morning, noon and night! Sun up, till sun down! It took a little over a week and a half. The Swarovski crystals were hand woven into the dress and was full of intricate details. We also made all 7 bridesmaid dresses as well.[...]She wore a mesh Christian Louboutin Body Strass Mesh heel that was worth $1,195.”

“They were dope as heck!”

Glee star Naya Rivera and Big Sean have decided to call off their wedding after appearing together in several red carpet events and doing a track together.  According to reports, Big Sean confessed that he cheated on Naya which ultimately made him decide to cancel the marriage.  But according to Sean’s rep, this accusation is not true despite the fact that the wedding has been called off for now.  Sean’s rep released a statement saying:

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?
