MTV taped the final episode of their once hugely popular video countdown show, TRL, yesterday in their Times Square studio. As perviously reported Beyonce was on hand to perform, while Teyana Taylor stopped by to share her very short memories of the show. I had heard a slew of Brown Sistas were due to make an apeearance, including Alicia Keys, Mariah Carey and Ashanti- neither of those women were there however. Other big names who represented TRL over the years were also absent. Britney and Christina were the most notable no shows, as were the boy bands who helped make that show so popular back in the late 90s. The only people who did seem to turn out were rappers. Diddy, Nelly and Snoop were all on hand- even though the TRL crowd never showed these artists any real love.
TRL has been good to both Beyonce and Destiny’s Child, so it is no wonder Bey was asked to perform. Click over to page 2 to see her perform her new singles, as well as a few classics.
Two of my favorite actresses, Sanaa Lathan and Gabrielle Union, were spotted at the Victoria Secret After-Party at LIV Nightclub. Look for Gabby in the Cadillac Records movie, while Sanaa can be seen in Wonderful World, a movie due to be released next year.
Solange was also spotted over the weekend performing at the 4th Annual PAPER Magazine Nightlife Awards. The singer put on a happy face… literally. Check out her shirt. It’s pretty cute.
