Angie Stone is back on the scene with a new album, new outlook on life and a smoking hot new image. The singer’s fifth studio album is “Unexpected” in name and content. Angie experimented with a new sound on this album, which you can hear in the singer’s first single, I Ain’t Hearin’ You.

I pretty much hung out around the house, did some laundry and worked on a new website. I cooked salmon for dinner last night- Oh wait. You guys don’t wanna hear what I did over the weekend do you? My bad (lol). Ok, getting on to what is important- Hollywood folks continued to do Hollywood things: party, promote and in the case of Rihanna, hit up Kentucky Fried Chicken. The singer was spotted picking up a drink and looking none too happy about having the photogs around. When oh when will these celebs learn that the paparazzi are actually helping them? Smile Rihanna- your face will be plastered across every gossip blog within twenty-four hours. There are a million d-list celebrities who would give their right arm for that type of press.
“Well, you know it goes back to the very beginning. If you were light skinned you were in, if you were dark skinned you were out. It very well works that way in the industry. You see very [few] dark skinned people on top of the game. Most of the superstars are very fair or mullatto people. You can check your stats. It works that way in the film world too. I have lost almost every single opportunity to star in a film to Macy Gray or Jill Scott because they’re light and I’m dark. I’ve been told so many times that it’s a certain look that they’re looking for. So you can’t even use weight anymore. You can’t use age because everybody’s over 35 that’s running around doing it. It comes down to what is more appealing. I’m only good for the pro political stuff that will afford all of my people from the hood to vote for the right president – or to support whatever because I’m more on their level, so to speak. So to me it hasn’t changed much. Slavery has just taken on a whole new different direction but it’s the same process.”
