I think its safe to say that the majority of females believe that men are the new b*tches. Lets face it the roles have reversed, more and more female don’t want any strings attached, and they just want to call a man when they need their back broke, a$$ chewed out or their faucet fixed.

What are some other signs a man might be a B.A.N.?
R&B singer Kelis has reportedly linked with Black Eyed Peas’ frontman Will.i.am and become the latest artist to sign onto his Will.i.am Music Group, an Interscope Records imprint. According to reports, Nas’ estranged wife is now on Interscope, home to artists including Eminem, Diddy, 50 Cent and Mary J. Blige.
After much speculation following the release of a song titled “Acapella” on the Internet last week, singer-songwriter Kelis has announced that she has signed to Interscope Records through Will.i.am Music Group. “I love that I am now a new part of the Interscope family,” Kelis said via a statement. “2010 is around the corner and I can’t wait to put out new music and spend time with real music fans on tour again.” (Billboard)
The move marks her official departure from former record company, Jive Records.
Kelis’ last label deal was with Jive Records, and she reportedly was dropped in late 2007. Her as-yet-untitled album features production from the Black Eyed Peas’ Will.i.am as well as Free School, Boyz Noize, Burnz, DJ Ammo and David Guetta, who produced the above-mentioned retro-dance track. (Reuters)
She hinted at a new record deal late last month.
“My album is pretty much done. I signed a new deal and I’m madly in love with life and ready to share something with you,” she said in a message. “My song is called ‘Acapella’ and I wrote it with love and life in mind. I hope that it finds you well and that you love it, cause honestly I do!” (All Headline News)
Kelis has over a decade of music to her name and is most known for working alongside The Neptunes.
Black Eyed Peas star Will.I.Am is launching the Data Awards next year to pay tribute to the art of DJ-ing. The I Gotta Feeling hitmaker will turn the spotlight on club DJs in an effort to honor their work at the inaugural ceremony on January 30th, 2010 – one night before the music industry’s most prestigious awards ceremony, the Grammys.
Announcing the annual event at a press conference on Tuesday (01Dec09), will.i.am said, “There’s a lot of things going on in music nowadays; record stores falling, the internet… One of the most important factors in this is that the DJs and artists are still very much active.
“During (Grammy) week we are celebrating and honouring the DJ by announcing the Data Awards and giving them the top awards. We’re starting off small with four awards: Best DJ, Best DJ Solo/Group, Best Remix and Best Original Track. I’m really excited about that.”
The Data Awards will coincide with will.i.am’s new art exhibition, entitled Who Killed The Music?, and the rapper is turning the whole week of events into one big fundraiser by donating money from the sale of the artworks to two good causes – the Grammy Foundation and the star’s own i am scholarship fund for cash-strapped students.
He is also teaming up with French DJ David Guetta to play a series of concerts in the lead-up to the two prizegivings – with all proceeds from the ticket sales benefiting his scholarship organisation.
We’ve all been w/ the wrong person at least once. When we break up and we look back like what the hell was I thinking. Now, personally if one of my chicks have any of this flag pop up! Imma Jay-Z that trick and be on to the next one. Check em out tell me what you think.
1. Her body issues exceed normal limits.
Who wants to spend time with a girl who constantly asks you if you think she’s fat? Every girl’s got her insecurities, but if she can’t eat a meal without calculating calories, cancels dates with you so she can get in those extra workouts, or walks backward when she’s naked because she’s afraid you’ll see her non-existent cellulite, we don’t care how skinny she is — she sucks.
The Story: “My ex didn’t eat pizza, but not because she didn’t like it. In fact, she loved it. She swore off pizza because of the calories. Then she swore off beer, also because of the calories. I understand not wanting to gain weight but come on, splurge once in a while. If your girl won’t chill on the couch eating pizza and drinking beer every now and then, you may as well swear off the relationship because you’re dating a total Debbie Downer.”
2. She doesn’t have a mind of her own.
If you’re talking to a girl and she thinks everything you say is interesting, she probably isn’t thinking at all or is too inarticulate or insecure to share her opinion with you. This inability to think for herself will likely snowball with time — soon she’ll be adopting your interests and agreeing with everything you say, which is a lot more boring than it sounds.
The Story: “I was dating this girl who was totally high maintenance but claimed to be a great athlete. She said she played softball, basketball and ran track in high school. For her birthday, I planned a special sports-oriented day. For the first half, I packed a picnic basket and brought two mitts and a softball. Once we got to the park, I grabbed a mitt for myself and tossed the other one her way … and she ducked … I called her out on it and she said she had lied because she knew I was really into baseball and wanted us to have something in common.”
3. She’s obsessed with marriage.
When a girl says she isn’t thinking at all about marriage and just wants to enjoy the moment, do not believe her. She is lying to you and herself — all girls think about marriage. The chicks you need to look out for are those who plan their entire wedding and are merely looking for a man to insert into their delusional fantasy.
The Story: “Considering proposal to my then girlfriend, I went window-shopping for rings. Finding not one perfect diamond, I took it as a sign that the relationship was flawed and decided to slow things down a bit. Well, I knew I had made the right decision when just a few weeks later she asked me where her ring was. Not, Are we going to get married and spend the rest of our lives happy together? but Where’s my ring? Then, when I told her I had to use the money to pay off some bills, she became outraged, throwing a fit.”
4. She tells you not to wear the condom on your first night.
Yes, in the heat of the moment, people make mistakes. If you’re both wasted and it accidentally happens, OK, we get it. But if a chick specifically tells you not to worry about wearing a condom, you need to worry about it — how many other guys has she said that to?
The Story: “At a Super Bowl party my buddies and I were playing flip-cup outside at a friend’s beach house and I charmed some girls into hanging out with us for the day. Things between me and this hot redhead were clicking … After a few games and some witty banter we ended up in my buddy’s bedroom fooling around. After an exhaustive search to find condoms at the house and asking everyone there to no avail, I told her, ‘Oh well, I guess no sex, no big deal.’ To this I got the response: ‘If you promise to be careful you can go right ahead.’ If a girl is willing to let a stranger go raw, and all you have to do is remember to pull out, you should run like I did. Or give her a fake name so then she can’t find you for the child support payments.”
5. She thinks her dog is your child.
You’re not living with the girl but somehow you end up being the one walking her yappy dog (and cleaning up after it) when you’re over at her place. Why? Because you’re its daddy.
The Story: “I’d been seeing this girl for a couple weeks when she decided to spend $400 on a hypoallergenic dog about the size of my fist. The first red flag was the fact that she spent that much on a pet, when I’d been helping her pay rent for three months. Then, she started calling her dog her ‘baby,’ and referred to me as the dog’s ‘daddy.’ I hit the road, knowing the longer I stayed, the more ‘children’ I’d have to support and rent I’d have to pay.”
6. She “doesn’t give blowjobs.”
What does this mean exactly? Like she doesn’t give head, ever? We don’t get it.
The Story: “I once dated this chick who stopped blowing me after a few months because she ‘didn’t like the taste.’ No offense, but that labyrinth you call your vagina doesn’t taste like sweet, delicious candy. If you don’t want to drop to your knees anymore, you probably shouldn’t expect me to have any more dinners at the Y.”
7. She has a record of dating jerks.
Girls with sketchy dating histories, particularly those who have subjected themselves to serious degradation in multiple relationships, present some major red flags. No, you’re not going to save her; you’ll just end up being the nice guy she once dated.
The Story: “Shortly into a relationship a girl told me that she had had a number of shitty boyfriends, among them a guy who used to make her do push ups and ab exercises every night to keep a lean figure. I obviously laughed when she told me this but seriously, what girl allows herself to be treated so poorly? The answer: the type of girl that, one week post break-up, calls at 3 AM hysterically crying and looking for consolation because the condom worn by some random dude she just met at a bar broke during intercourse. Needless to say, I was glad she was no longer my problem.”
Jay-Z is giving British pop duo The Ting Tings a helping hand in the U.S. – he’s signed the band to his new record label.
The That’s Not My Name hitmakers shot to fame in Europe last year (08), but they have yet to replicate the same level of success In America, where their debut album, We Started Nothing, peaked at number 78 in the Billboard 200.
But the Empire State of Mind rapper is a big fan of The Ting Tings and has signed them up to his Roc Nation label to help boost their profile in America.
And he’s hoping to collaborate with bandmates Katie White and Jules De Martino to produce some new tracks.
A source says, “Jay is hoping to lend his production skills to some new material. “The staccato rhythmic style of The Ting Tings sits well with what he does best so that was the attraction. “Jay can make them one of the biggest bands across the pond.”
The Ting Tings follow in the footsteps of fellow British pop group the Sugababes, who inked a deal with Roc Nation earlier this year (09).

Beanie Sigel & 50 Cent Appear On Power 99, Talks About Marriage w/ The Kendra G. & Beans Signs To G-Unit….
Why do we feel like 50 Cent is somewhere smiling over this sequence of events we’re sure he didn’t orchestrate in promotion of his new album? Check out the latest update in Roc-a-gate 2009 as Beanie Sigel and 50 Cent appear on Power 99 radio station to answer Jay-Z’s answer. In this episode Beanie says nobody gave him two Bentley’s he was paying nearly $5,100 a month to maintain them, being stopped from signing a $800,000 deal with 50 Cent and how Jay-Z should let up on Dame Dash since he has taken everything from him. Beanie ends that interview saying he’s not going to stop interviews until Jay-Z responds.
Best part of the interview – 50 Cent says “yeah, uh huh” every time Beanie says anything. It’s crazy how 50 manages to find somebody who needs just a little nudge to go nuts for every album cycle, and then……….
