Kelis Hilton Rubs Elbows With The (Sorta) Heavy Hitters

6 01 2008

I’m falling out because on WireImage it said “Kelis (right)”. You know, just in case you weren’t sure.

These pictures (spotted at Str8OuttaNYC) pretty much confirm the post Erin did a few months back about Kelis full-on embracing her dropped status to become a socialite at random parties. For New Years’, Nas‘ wifey jacked Naomi Campbell’s wig piece watched the ball drop at Mariah’s party at Las Vegas’ TAO, where she mingled with stars like Mario and HeroesDania Ramirez (YOW! Don’t kill me, E). I’m not hating at all because I think it’s dope that she can still get into these kind of parties (paging Blu Cantrell!) but all I’m saying is she’s got a lot to learn on the attention-grabbing front because these folks are more likely to be in the same position as her this time next year (click the jump to see the pics).

Jive Records Drops Kelis

27 10 2007

First, former NSyncer JC Chasez decided to part ways with Jive Records, and now, EW has learned, Kelis has been dropped from the label that’s home to Britney Spears, Justin Timberlake, and R. Kelly. The R&B singer’s 2003 album, Tasty, yielded the massive hit “Milkshake,” and was certified gold, but Kelis’ most recent effort, 2006’s Kelis Was Here, had less success in the U.S.—despite plenty of guest spots, including a collaboration with her husband, Nas. Kelis was originally signed to Pharrell Williams’s Star Tracks, which had a distribution deal in place with Virgin, which was later moved to Arista and, through the SonyBMG merger, she ended up with Jive. “It was a case of being in the ever-shrinking world of the record industry and finding herself on a label she wasn’t signed to and without a champion,” says Kelis’ manager, Jeff Rabhan. “She’s a different kind of artist — very image and style-driven. It’s either something you get or you don’t.”Kelis has been working on an indie dance record with Cee-Lo. A full-on pop effort with Guy Chambers (Robbie Williams) will be shopped around soon. “We’re not opposed to another major label deal, but it would have to be non-traditional,” adds Rabhan. Kelis is also in talks to host a Project Runway-like show on VH1 and is auditioning for numerous TV and film roles.

While I can see why they did drop her I am really surprised that they did. I dunno, I think it’s that I forgot she had a record deal to begin with. She’s basically a socialite to me now. I have never thought that she was really into being a singer and that she just used it to break out into the business. She’s going to be the next Blu Cantrell and we will be seeing her at every party known to man.

Enrique Getting His Black On

12 06 2007
Enrique Insomniac

Enrique is back and while “Do You Know” heats up Pop radio (written by Sean Garrett, might I add), he should go for adds on this joint on his album called “Push” feat. Lil’ Wayne because I think it’s extremely hot for Enrique.

Lil’ Wayne turns in a decent verse, though it is very obviously phoned in. Enrique’s voice is slightly annoying as usual, but the beat is the main backdrop here. It’s a slinky funky mesh of violin and fuzzy bass. Produced by Adonis Shropshire and Steve Morales. I think it is pretty good for an Enrique Iglesias track. Wayne is the ONLY guest vocal on this album — that’s pretty amazing. Well, not really, cause Weezy has been on every song for the past year. That man works hard.

Anyway, I think someone will like it. I could almost do without the Enrique vocal — this could be a hot Mya song actually. I don’t know why that popped in my head. But I think it could, with a hot video to accompany.

DL Here

Also, remember this ditty? I kinda liked this a lot and listened to it often. Kelis did her thing on this joint.

Enrique Iglesias Feat. Kelis - I’m Not In Love

“Not In Love” was a WAY better vocal performance for Kelis than this schlock she just put out recently:

Kelis - Blindfold Me Feat. Nas

“When he want it he blindfold meh! Then I get sexy on em, get sexy on em!”

Ummm, no.

And the way she sounds on that pre-hook?! TERRIBLE. WHAT WERE THEY THINKING. And you just knew it was gonna be bad because anything with your spouse on it becomes hot trash anyway!

The beat was kinda hot though. But more milkshake please! I didn’t want to blindfold her after I heard this though, I wanted to gag her & hit her in the throat with a dead trout! Shame on her. What would her mother think? LOL

Anyway yeah, I digress. What do you think o’ the Enrique joint? Am I smoking crack today? LOL let me know.

Nas: “Kelis and I were treated like terrorists” in San Diego

3 05 2007

Nas says he recently canceled a planned show at San Diego’s House of Blues because he and his entourage, including wife Kelis, were treated “like terrorists” upon their arrival, according to All Hip Hop.

“We had a whole bunch of security guys rush outside to me and my wife like we were terrorists. Its not like I came with 50 guys or nothing. It was just me, my wife, my DJ and my staff for the ‘Hip-Hop Is Dead’ tour and they came at us like we was Osama Bin Laden or somebody.”

Nas added that next time he comes to San Diego, he will play at a different, larger venue.

Hmmmmm, she didn’t have any trouble getting in with her trailer park glam on and all 19,307 entourage members.

Kelis arrested for disrupting undercover operation

2 03 2007

Singer Kelis was arrested early Friday morning in Miami Beach after screaming racial obscenities at two female police officers who were posing as prostitutes.

The officers were working an undercover operation in South Beach, when cops say Kelis started screaming racial slurs at the women. She continued screaming and rushed toward them, and had to be restrained by friends, a police report said. According to the report, Kelis’ “actions caused people walking by to stop and form a crowd. The sidewalk was blocked by the disturbance, causing people to walk in the street and causing traffic to stop.”

Kelis, the wife of rapper Nas, was charged with two misdemeanor charges of disorderly conduct and for resisting arrest.

A rep for Kelis had no comment. (TMZ)

Maybe this will up her album sales to 70,000. If I were the cops, I personally would have arrested her for robbing a carnie and flaunting the stolen goods on her head. I’m just sayin’…

Kelis Hosts McDonald’s Arch Card “Fashion Original”

12 12 2006

Now her make-up is on point. I’m really liking her eyeshadow but I hate this hair! By going blonde it makes her haircut look totally different. Her and Eva Pigford look so much alike now. Next!
