Rosenberg Interviews Amber Rose!

Recently, Rosenberg from one of New York City’s top urban radio station, Hot 97, gave an interview with the lovely, Amber Rose!

I can say that I truly enjoyed this interview even though it was very short, but interesting enough to hold my attention. Out of all the Amber Rose interviews I have seen I can say that her energy with Rosenberg seemed to allow her to talk more freely about certain topics from her past relationship with Kanye West.

The interview was held at her home, in her backyard I assume…sitting close to her pool but not too far from the make shift fire set up to keep them warm. Amber had a glass of red wine she was sipping on & even referenced how she had a little buzz from it.

They instantly start off talking about her relationship with rapper, Kanye West, and what happened to her after their break up. Amber stated how she never asked of anything from Kanye after the break up, even while being broke while famous. Amber stated “I had to become an entrepreneur quick…you don”t get money from that…I walk outside an its like Oh…Amber Rose! But i’m broke af!”


Amber mentioned how when everyone learned about her past life being an exotic dancer, people was not so quick to embrace the lifestyle like they did when Cardi B or even Blac Chyna became famous. She is glad to feel like she did help to break down those doors in preventing other women who like her came from the exotic dancing background.

As for her love life goals in the future, Amber stated that she did go to see a therapist questioning why she keeps attracting narcissistic sociopaths, no names were mentioned of course. Rosenberg stated that he personally feels as if her “new” relationship is more on a positive level. Amber confirmed that her “new” relationship is that! She stated that his name is Monte, who is from Flint, MI, and loves her, her son, and is just like her best friend.

Even though, Amber did not mention exactly what Monte does as a career, she totally believes in dating a man who has his own. A man who will not look to take from her, but help add to it for she helps a lot with her family. Lastly, Amber mentioned something that I swear I did not know…. she is the reason why Nicki Minaj was featured on the famous hit “Monster” by Kanye!!!! I love women who support other women….YOU GO GIRL!

Xscape Dropping New EP Without Kandi Burress

Xscape will be dropping a new EP without member Kandi Burress

Per Ebony, the group Xscape will be coming out with a new EP without Kandi Burress. Even though Kandi wrapped up the tour with the group, she opted to not record any new music with them. The new EP which is titled, Here For It,is due to be released on February 14th and will only feature the remaining members Tameka “Tiny” Cottle, LaTocha Scott, and Tamika Scott. The EP will include six tracks including the two tracks the group released late last year while on tour called “Wifed Up” and “Dream Killa”.

The song “Wifed Up” is a song directed towards telling males that if they have a good woman to wife her up!

“Dream Killa” is about the idea of being in love with someone who keeps doing you wrong therefore killing the dream of being in a happy relationship.

I personally love the song “Dream Killa” and I am overly excited for the group EP to be released. Even without member, Kandi Burress, the remaining three’s vocals are good enough to keep me satisfied with their work.

Now, Kandi did opt to not record any new music with Xscape, but it was not due to any negative drama, its due to her starring as Matron “Mama” Morton in the Broadway play, Chicago that will be running from January 15th to March 11th at the Ambassador Theatre in New York City.

The production will star Tony award nominee, Charlotte D’Amboise as Roxie Hart, original cast member, Leigh Zimmerman as Velma Kelly, YouTube sensation and Broadway star, Todrick Hall as Billy Flynn, Raymond Bokhour as Amos Hart, LaVon Fisher-Wilson as Matron “Mama” Morton, and R. Lowe as Mary Sunshine.

Make sure to purchase a ticket to the play if in New York City to support Kandi for her first Broadway play performance now!! Click here to read more of the article.

Aspiring New York City Model Found Dead In Jamaica With Slashed Throat

Desiree Gibbon was in Jamaica looking for work before she was found dead with a slashed throat the weekend after Thanksgiving, according to the New York Daily News.

On Nov. 26, residents found her beaten-bloodied body just four miles from Montego Bay. Authorities made their rounds at nearby hotels to identify her body, with one establishment being the inn owned by her grandmother.


The 26 year old was staying at her family’s guesthouse while looking for temporary bartending work to save money for film school in Europe. Her boyfriend, Phil Rodriguez, previously told the Daily News that she complained about having problems with some new friends she met during her trip.

“Some friends were responsible, law-abiding citizens with jobs, but she also made friends with what she called ‘poor girls’ from the other side of town,” Rodriguez said. “I wouldn’t be surprised at all if she made what she thought was friends, but they were actually plotting against her.”

Gibbon’s mother, Andrea Cali-Gibbon, also believes her daughter was harmed by someone she trusted. “She didn’t venture out on her own,” Cali-Gibbon said. “It was somebody she trusted.”

Adding, “She was a tough cookie. I know she fought until she drew her last breath. I know she did. And I’m certain that her last thought was, ‘Will my mom be OK if I don’t make it?’”

Gibbon was supposed to fly back that following Thursday, after scouting potential musicians for a friend’s record label.

The ambitious young woman’s father, who is Jamaican, was at a loss for words. “It’s a terrible feeling,” Gairy Gibbon said. “No words to describe it. I can’t describe how I feel right now, standing here.”

Her death is currently under investigation.
