Robin Thicke At ‘A Very BET Christmas’

Robin Thicke – White Christmas & Merry Christmas Baby (2011)

Robin Thicke took the microphone on A Very BET Christmas on Sunday night and gave his own spin to a couple of classic songs. Singing White Christmas, Thicke changed up the lyrics to make it more of a “Peaceful Christmas.” While getting rather literal, the entertainer’s fans didn’t mind as his voice was smooth as silk. Getting the audience in the mood, he then performed an Otis Redding classic single called Merry Christmas Baby. The artist had the fans in the studio out of their seats for the second single as Robin Thicke had the song giving a groovy feeling.

Sharing his strong vocal abilities, the entertainer didn’t’ miss a beat as he kept the song going. Sharing a holiday tradition, Robin Thicke was joined by Trey Songz, Mindless Behavior, Monica, Lloyd, Kurtis Blow, Jacob Latimore as they took time to belt out holiday tunes that everyone could sing along with. Keeping the party going, it was the perfect special to watch gathered around the fire and dreaming of a white Christmas.

Buddy Talks New Single ‘Bell Ring’ & Mixtape ‘Idletime’


Buddy is an 18-year old spitfire from Compton ready to win over ears of a new generation of Hip-Hop enthusiasts. Rapping since he was eleven, Buddy has always put all his heart and effort into being the best emcee he could be. This eventually caught the attention of Pharrell, who mentored his growing skill and consequently produced his debut track “Awesome Awesome.” Currently featured on HBO’s “How To Make It In America 2” mixtape, the track is building momentum in both the Hip-Hop and mainstream world. HipHopWired.com recently caught up with Buddy to talk about the single, signing with Pharrell, and if he feels theirs more pressure on him than other MCs by Jason Weintraub.

HHW: What’s some of the influences you had groing up in Compton?
Buddy: A lot of West coast rappers, Ice Cube, NWA, Snoop, all those guys, and 2Pac of course. I like Nas and Kanye West too, but I was also drawn to a lot of mainstream growing up too.

HHW: What’s the relationship with Scott Vener?
Buddy: Andrew my manager brought him on the team and thought he would be a good fit. Andrew Shack is my manager though.

HHW: And that’s how you ended up with Pharrell?
Buddy: Yeah, Scott showed Pharrell some videos I did, and once he showed Pharrell the videos he was pretty sold. He was feeling all of them so he called me in for a meeting and I met with him. So I meet him shake his hand and next thing I know I’m in the studio with him in Miami recording “Awesome Awesome.”

Jay-Z Hints Solo Project


‘We’re really in a great place creatively,’ Jay-Z tells MTV News of three possible projects. By Rob Markman. Are you ready to Watch The Throne again? With Jay-Z and Kanye West still riding high off the success of their summer masterpiece, the duo just may get back in the studio and give fans another dose, Hov revealed to MTV News. “It depends on how this thing finishes up,” Jay said in reference to his and Kanye’s current Watch The Throne Tour. “We — I say ‘we’ because I’m in Throne mode — we’re in a great place creatively. You might see a Jay, then Kanye and a Throne album next year. You know, we’re really in a great place creatively. We really found our zone.” Back in July, during an intimate listening session for the then-unreleased WTT, Jay revealed to a room of reporters that he had two songs already recorded for his yet-untitled 11th solo album but hasn’t talked about it very much since.

It’s been two years since Jigga dropped his last LP, The Blueprint 3. Kanye, on the other hand, released his last solo album, My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy, in 2010. It was both a commercial and critical success, but was noticeably absent from the Album Of The Year category when Grammy nominations were announced last month. During a December 1 Throne concert in his hometown of Chicago, Yeezy addressed the snub, surprisingly blaming himself for releasing Fantasy and Watch The Throne in the same year. “Don’t worry, because me and Hov are gonna keep on making sh–,” he told the crowd. Jay, who on Thursday announced a pair of charity concerts at New York’s Carnegie Hall, didn’t give official word about when fans can expect any of the three projects, but he is definitely in his zone!

Robin Thicke Talks Sex Life & Aggressive Women, Performs ‘Love After War’

This week marked the release of singer-songwriter Robin Thicke’s fifth studio album, titled “Love After War.” In promotion of the project, Thicke stopped by New York City radio station Power 105.1’s morning show, “The Breakfast Club,” where he spoke candidly about the key to longevity for any marriage: “lots of great sex, high heels and lingerie.” “That’s just how you make up,” he admitted. “Cause everyone is going to fight and argue and break dishes and TVs. But somebody’s got to put on some lingerie once in a while.”

In terms on how he manages to remain monogamous while having admirers on hand, the R&B crooner revealed that there’s still a lot of aggressive women out there, “but most of them just want to have threesomes.” Though Thicke did not confirm or deny if he and his wife, Paula Patton, have ever participated in any such sexual activities, he did add how much chemistry he still has with the actress. “I’m not the same person that I was five years ago, and neither is she. She’s a beast,” he explained. “So you got to be able to change with each other. Luckily we’ve been able to adapt.” Check out Robin Thicke’s performance on The Tonight Show below.
