The Congressional Black Caucus Foundation Welcomes the Hip-Hop Summit Action Network’s "Get Your Money Right" International Tour

The Congressional Black Caucus Foundation Welcomes the 37th Annual Hip-Hop Summit Action Network’s "Get Your Money Right" International Tour was held September 29, 2007 at the Washington Convention Center in Washington, DC. Guests included Dr. Benjamin, Russell Simmons, LeToya Luckett, Belly, Lyfe Jennings, Bun B, and Big Daddy Kane. Very few people showed up but it's nice that this event is held every year for African Americans. Ex Destiny's Child member LeToya looks cute. It's nice to see her out at events again. Her album should have went a lot more further than it did. Lyfe Jennings is very sexy but he knows damn well that he should have dressed up more for this event. Business casual would've been appropriate; the same goes for Belly and Bun B.

Jennifer Lopez & Marc Anthony "En Concierto" Tour Opener & Joss Stone In Concert At Atlantis

Marc Anthony and Jennifer Lopez performed at the Trump Taj Mahal Casino and Resort at the "En Concierto" tour opener on September 28, 2007 in Atlantic City, New Jersey. WTF is up with Jennifer's outfits??? I know that because it's a tour, creative outifts are worn by performers, but these outfits just look a mess. That gold dress does not flatter her shape at all and fits her like a big sack.

Joss Stone performed at Atlantis in Paradise Island September 28, 2007 in Paradise Island, Bahamas. I love all the different lighting she used for the show. I'm sure Joss killed that show with her amazing voice.

Shakira Attends The Clinton Global Invitation

Check out the HQ photos of Shakira at the Clinton Global Initiative in New York on September 27, 2007. Shakira's outfit is very conservative, which fits the event, but it's weird seeing Shakira dressing like this LOL. She looks very nice but I'm not sure about the lipstick. Because she is very pretty, the lipstick looks nice in close up shots but doesn't look that great in far away shots. Either way she still looks very nice.

Jennifer Lopez In Arena Magazine

Jennifer Lopez is featured in the November 2007 issue of Arena Magazine. I hate the cover but the rest of the photos are edgy and fierce. Jennifer Lopez can take great photos, but this is not going to help her album sales. She was always all about looks and beats but her single is not being well received. A lot of people aren't really interested in Jlo like they used to be. Check out the rest of HQ photos from the magazine down below.

Beyonce's UpComing Show In Malaysia is Protested & Mariah Carey Wins Court Case Over "It's Like That"

BeyoncĂ©'s planned concert in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, has been canned amid protests by local Muslim groups, Billboard reports. The groups are reportedly upset that the singer has refused to obey the country's strict dress code for performers, although the November 1 concert's promoter, Pineapple Concert, did not give a reason for the cancellation in a statement issued Friday (September 28). Female performers are not allowed to show skin from the tops of their chests to their knees. In August, Gwen Stefani's concert in the country was also preceded by protests for the same reason — but she reluctantly abided by the guidelines, saying in a press conference before the show that she had made a "major sacrifice." ...

A lot of the asian and middle eastern countries do this all the time. I think it's fine that they want a singer to cover up because we all know the way these female performers be dressing is very skimpy, but why even promote that artist in the country if you don't agree with the way that female dresses or how she sells sex???

A judge ruled in favor of Mariah Carey last week in a copyright-infringement lawsuit over the track, "It's Like That," from her multi-platinum 2004 album, "The Emancipation of Mimi." Singer Rachelle Chafir claimed the hit copied key portions of her track "Sexy," and that Carey had access to the song because it was available on a Web site, reports MTV. However, U.S. District Court Judge Kimba Wood said Chafir was unable to prove that Carey or her producers lifted the material or had even visited the Web site. Wood also said the songs were not "strikingly similar" enough to be considered infringement. With "no genuine issues of material fact," Wood closed the case. "It was the right decision," Carey's lawyer Ilene Farkas told MTV News. "The record was clear in this case."

Usher at Macy's For His Fragrance, Ja Rule, Nelly, and Irv Show Up at 106 & Park, & Photos From The New and Improved Miami Live, & Brandon's B-Day

Usher Appearanced at Macy's For Fragrances:Usher for Men & Usher for Women at Macy's Herald Square on September 27, 2007. Why everytime I see Usher, he looks like a golfer? That's not a good look brotha.

Ja Rule, Irv Gotti, and Nelly visited 106 & Park yesterday, September 27, 2007. Hmmmm, I wonder what Nelly's reaction was when he saw Irv (after Irv's tell all on his relations with Ashanti) I don't even know why Ja Rule and Irv are still around. They need to sit down somewhere.

Cee-Lo, Solange Knowles, and Choppa from the first Making The Band attended The New and Improved Miami Live September 26, 2007 in Miami Beach, Florida. Usually Solange looks a mess, but she looks very nice right here. I love the color of her dress and how clean her makeup is. Damn... I didn't even know that Choppa was still around, I know that Diddy had resigned him a few years back and Choppa came out with a wack ass video, but haven't heard anything from him since.

Lil Jon and Brandon Roque celebrated Brandon's birthday at TAO Nightclub at The Venetian Hotel and Casino Resort on September 27, 2007 in Las Vegas, Nevada. Lil John looks like a fool like he always does.

Justin Timberlake Featuring Beyonce: Until The End of Time Remix

Beyonce and Justin Timberlake actually went through with that duet that was talked about. Beyonce is featured on the remix of Justin Timberlake's "Until The End of Time". I must say I didn't like the orginal version of the song, because Justin Timberlake has a pop voice and it didn't sound right on a real R&B track, but Beyonce brings that soulful R&B voice to this track. Their voices blend well together though. Although, I think it would've been better if Robin Thicke and Beyonce did the song together.

Rihanna at the Dsquared Collection Presentation

Rihanna visited fashion house Dsquared2 during the Spring/Summer 2008 collections of the Milan ready-to-wear fashion shows with Canadian designers Dean and Dan Caten. Her chest is popping out too much in both the purple and black dress but her face in the last pic looks very nice.
