Beyonce Upgrades DirecTV

I know everyone is saying Bey needs to take a break but it appears that isn’t going to happen anytime soon. Not only is the second part of her world tour a smash, but she has a new album due to drop during the first quater of 2008 and she now has a new commercial for DIRECTV. The commercial is very cute actually and is a take on her “Upgrade U” video.

Keyshia Performances & New Photo Shoot

Keyshia Cole Keyshia Cole recently performed on VH-1’s Unplugged and totally owned it. Many have speculated about Keyshia’s vocal abilities over the years but I think this show and these performances will quiet her detractors- for now at least. With a new album, new tour and the return of her reality show to BET, Keyshia is on a performance blitz, not only doing her thing on VH-1, but also taking it to the stage on The Tyra Banks Show, performing her heart wrenching single, Shoulda Let You Go. Look for Keyshia to heat up the Tyra Show this Friday, where she will also be joined by Rihanna.

Live BET Awards Chat Fest

Ok, somebody obviously done told us wrong because Beyonce and Jay Z did not open the BET Awards as previously thought. Instead BET gave Jennifer Holiday the gift of a lifetime by allowing her to duet with J. Hudson on the Dreamgirls anthem, And I’m Telling You. I must say it was a big surprise to see Jennifer Holiday take the stage but it was a pleasant surprise nonetheless. I think both Jennifer’s did an excellent job, if not a bit much at the end. Sill, this year’s show is an upgrade from last year’s and keep getting better.

So what do you guys think so far… ?

Monday Morning Randomness

Jay & Beyonce Bey spent her last day of freedom in St Tropez before heading back to the states where she is due to perform on tomorrow night’s BET Awards. Word is Beyonce will be opening the show with a medley of her B’ Day hits, including Upgrade U and Get Me Bodied. Jay is a rumored special guest and if he does perform with Bey, that will be some sort of record, as I believe they will have opened the BET Awards twice in the past as well. It’s no wonder BET is turning to Beyonce again, as their show last year, which she also opened, was a record breaker, pulling in a whopping six million viewers and even besting the MTV Video Awards.
