@toddyrockstar x McDonalds Drive Thru Song

This is the best thing ever! For those of you who don't know who aren't familiar with Todrick Hall...he is the mastermind behind the huge Beyonce flashmob in Target. He was also a contestant on American Idol. I was going through YouTube and came across this and instantly was blown away. Can you imagine what the drive thru worker was thinking? Lol This is so funny. Check it out. 



@nikejemiyo x I Look To You Cover

Whitney Houston has a one of kind voice...no one will ever be able to compare to that. But Nike Jemiyo kills this cover, like oh my God. She sings the song with so much emotion...its just wow.  I been through her YouTube channel and this girl has some pipes on her, and the fact that she plays the piano is a bonus as well. Check out her YouTube for some other dope covers she done on Rihanna, Beyonce, Adele, Leona Lewis, Katy Perry and many other singers. If you see this post Nike...we need to set up an interview for www.tammytalks.com Lol. 

Kid Cudi's new tattoo

Im sorry but this is the dumbest tattoo Ive probably every seen. Tattoos are supposed to have meaning or even represent something. What is this representing....besides a cry for help? According to Kid Cudi, it represents him killing his old self. Sigh.....surely there could have been a different symbol to signify that...but hey Kid Cudi, if you like it I love it. 

XXL 2012 Freshman Class

Dancing With The Stars new cast

I used to be a huge fan of Dancing With The Stars but then Brandy lost to Bristol Palin I was completely over the show. It always seems like the last season was lackluster. But they really pulled out the stops this year. They def went above and behind to attract the "black" crowd. Check out who joins the cast below.

Mary J Blige sings National Anthem at 2012 All Star Game

I'm a MJB fan just like the next person but I can acknowledge the fact that Mary is NOT a strong singer.  Mary is what I like to call a studio artist. She needs to be in the studio so they can enhance, smooth out, and fix her voice to sound good. Singing live is not her strong point. However, MJB has songs that move you and she is a damn good entertainer so her lack of singing gets overshadowed. But when you sing acapella....no flaw goes unnoticed. So when MJB decided to sing the National Anthem at the All Star game acapella...well just take a look below at her performance and judge for yourself.

Octavia Spencer wins Oscar

Congrats to Octavia Spencer for her Oscar win for Best Supporting Actress for her role in The Help

Guess who is playing Whitney Houston in her biopic

As many of you know there has been talk of putting together a biopic on Whitney Houston. Now before people freak out and say its too soon after her death to even think about creating this...Whitney was in talks to do her biopic before she passed away. So who should play Whitney in her biopic? Its so hard because Whitney had such a unique voice...I mean she was "The Voice". 
I have some ideas and opinions on who I think should play Whitney, and I will also list my reservations on who some other people have suggested.
 Check them out below.

Andre 3000 speaks on new Outkast album

Recently there have been numerous reports that Big Boi and Andre 3000 were teaming back up for another Outkast album.....Andre 3000 speaks out regrading the Outkast album in this latest interview with GQ. Check out what he said below

@NDGordon clears up Bobbi Kristina Twitter rumors

All eyes are on Bobbi Kristina nowadays, the young starlet is the main focus on the media it seems like. The paps are just waiting for her first move....whether its good or bad. Im glad she hasn't been seen since the funeral. This is just getting ridiculous now...its horrible enough that the poor girl lost her mother, she has to grieve publicly, there are numerous allegations about her being high after the funeral, the hoopla surrounding Bobby Brown vs the Houston family, and now there are people impersonating her on Twitter.

*New Music* @TeyanaTaylor feat Fabolous/Jadakiss x D.U.I.

Teyana Taylor has been putting out new music lately presumably from an upcoming project and I have enjoyed every song so far. The songtress/actress/rapper is showing she is more than just her rock hard abs and a pretty face. She is very talented. Her latest song D.U.I. featuring Fabolous and Jadakiss is song where Teyana sings about deep in love she is. I am actually excited for this project to come out. Check it out below.



The Dream x Roc (Video)

Aretha Franklin issues statement on missing Whitney's funeral

Extra TV, the New York Post and Newsday (New York) should stop the BS. Cissy Houston and I have been longtime friends for almost 50 years. I have four invitations and parking passes that were sent to me for the funeral. Extra TV, the New York Post and Newsday (New York) are more interested in sensationalism and negative speculations than the truth. People are getting their information from the wrong source. The intelligent and the thoughtful thing to do would be to respect and have some sensitivity to the moment. If you don’t know how, at least try. Cissy does not need ridiculous speculation and neither do I—particularly at this time. Also, with respect to the Today Show, my entire statement was pretaped. However, the Today Show did not air the part of my statement, which said, “This is no reflection on Cissy or Nippy’s upbringing.” Knowing Cissy as well as I do, I know Whitney left home right and properly. I was generalizing and it was a well intended statement for any young adult co…

Brandy and Monica tour?

In lieu of their recent success from their second duet, It All Belongs To Me, the two singers are planning a summer tour...just in time to perform songs from their new albums will be be released by then. 

“We’re dedicated to this song in a different way because now we’re old enough to know that there’s strength in unity and there’s strength in numbers, so us coming together is actually enjoyable now,” explained Mo. “We both have kids, we talk about them, we have a good time—we didn’t do that the first time. We never experienced ‘The Boy Is Mine.’” SOURCE

*New Music* Rihanna/Chris Brown x Birthday Cake x Turn Up The Music

Welp the unexpected has happened! Lol. Rihanna and Chris Brown have teamed up once again to create more music. The internet was set on fire last week with rumors that Rihanna and Chris Brown were in the studio working on the remix to her interlude. Birthday Cake, from last album Talk That Talk.

Well the song hit the airwaves today and its a dope song. Check it out below.

Whitney Houston Homegoing Service

Yesterday Whitney Elizabeth Houston, "The Voice", took the world to church at her funeral. The star studded service was full of laughs and tears. Even though I watched at home...I felt like I attended a funeral. It was very classy and beautifully done. Kevin Costner gave a light hearted memory filled speech, Kim Burrell remixed a Sam Cooke classic song for Whitney, and friends/family spoke highly of Whitney. The end of the funeral when they lifted her casket and played "I Will Always Love You", gave me chills and made her death all to real. If you missed the funeral or watch  it again. You can check out the funeral in entirety after the jump. RIP Whitney


Robin Thicke x (Exhale) Whitney Tribute Song

Robin Thicke reworked Whitney Houston's famous song, Exhale. His raw, acoustic piano version is sung with so emotion. Its a beautiful rendition.

For Better or For Better gets 2nd season

For Better or For Worse is a sitcom based on the marital woes of  Marcus (Michael Jai White) and Angela (Tasha Smith)  characters from the 2007 film “Why Did I Get Married?” While the show received mixed reviews, it still finished as basic cable’s #1 sitcom of 2011. Well TBS was so impressed that they ordered 35 more episodes of the sitcom. Look for season 2 very soon.

Bobby Brown issues statement on Whitney's funeral

As many of us watched Whitney Houston's funeral from our homes, Bobby Brown hoped to honor his ex wife in person at the funeral, however that wasnt allowed to happen. Reports went rampant that Bobby Brown left the church shortly after the funeral started. Many blog reported that he had a huge entourage with him and he caused a scene. In reality, that was not the case. Bobby issued the following statement explaining why he and his children left the church. “My children and I were invited to the funeral of my ex-wife Whitney Houston.  We were seated by security and then subsequently asked to move on three separate occasions. I fail to understand why security treated my family this way and continue to ask us and no one else to move. Security then prevented me from attempting to see my daughter Bobbi-Kristina. In light of the events, I gave a kiss to the casket of my ex-wife and departed as I refused to create a scene. My children are completely distraught over the events. This was a d…

Brandy and Monica perform new duet on Jay Leno

I will say that watching this performance makes me like the song more.

*New Music* Tyga feat Nicki Minaj x Mutha_a Up

Im not a huge Tyga fan but this song is pretty dope...YMCMB rappers are 1654616% better when they step away from that wack 1 2 flow that YMCMB insists on using. Tyga is riding the beat on this one and Nicki let go of the gimmicks and she spits on here. Lets stay this way Nicki.


Rihanna and Chris Brown team up for new song

The blogsphere is going crazy with reports on who Rihanna has been in the studio with! If you recall on Rihanna's latest album, Talk That Talk, featured the song Birthday Cake which was only 1:18 long...Rihanna took to Twitter to ask her fans who she should feature on the song....
According to Billboard.com Rihanna is featuring ex-boyfriend Chris Brown on the song.

Over the weekend, Chris Brown and Rihanna were seen leaving a West Hollywood studio, separately. Co-producers of "Birthday Cake," Da Internz -- comprised of Kosine and Tuo -- hinted on the collaboration when they told MTV News that the cameo on the track would "shock the world."

"It's gonna be crazy," Tuo said. "And the feature on there is gonna shock the world," Kosine added.  SOURCE

Check out the original song below

Tyrese x Nothing On You (Official Video)

*New Music* Busta Rhymes x Why Stop Now Remix

When I saw Missy was featured on the track I instantly had to listen. The beat is crazy and Busta actually raps coherently. Lol Missy snaps on the mic once again."You aint on Missy level betta get up on ya tippy toes". Lil Wayne raps about his usual...skateboarding, being in jail, drugs, and sex, lol, his verse goes down though. "My blunt last longer than friendships". Chis Brown jumps on the hook to bring the song together. I love the song...definite smash in my book. Check it out below.


*New Music* Usher x Climax

Usher released a new track "Climax" and I actually really dig it. Its a super sexy song I can definitely vibe to it.

@TammyTalks EXCLUSIVE interview with @EvelynLozada

Evelyn Lozada has quickly become a household name amongst the thousands of fans of reality television. I had the pleasure of chatting with Evelyn on the phone and she is by far one of the most down to earth celebs around. She was just a sweet heart on the phone and so easy to talk to. We discuss new make up line, her book, her regrets on Basketball Wives, and much more! 


Check out my EXCLUSIVE interview with Evelyn after jump.




*New Music* @LilKim x If You Love Me

Lil Kim has released a new song today entitled "If You Love Me". Im not sure if Im sold on the song entirely yet, the beat is smooth and Kim hasnt lost a beat rapping at all. However, Im beyond elated that it she didnt take any shots at Nicki Minaj. Take a listen to it.
