Kanye West let out his feelings about life, love and the passing of his mother on his blog the other day. He says…
I don’t do anything I don’t love anymore… I loved the flashing lights vid so it didn’t matter 2 me if someone one else didn’t. While people chase money I pursue happiness. So many people talk about there investments or how much money they have but there’s so many rich people who spend a lot of that trying 2 buy a piece of happiness. If there’s anything my mom taught me is to enjoy life. I just recorded my first verse in the last 6 months 2 days ago at Bape’s Studio in Japan. It felt good and I was inspired. I absolutely lost my mind (in a good way) on the new Glow in the Dark tour. The constant hours of creating helped me 2 keep from loosing my mind in a bad way. Chris Milk told me tragedy can produce great art and this is definitely true. I am a total mad man now, up till 3 am every night, trying 2 fight pain, board-um, and uncertainty with creativity. All that said, life is good….. good as finding the perfect fabric for a simple one button casual blazer with matching pants. (Source)
TMZ is reporting that the body of deceased singer Sean Levert is still in the custody of the Cuyahoga County Coroner
According to the Coroner, the body remains a “guest” at the Coroner’s office while Levert’s wife tries to decide whether to hold a private or public service. The 39-year-old died late Sunday after being restrained in a Cleveland jail.
R&B singer Sean LeVert was pronounced dead after midnight last night. Sean, 39, was the younger brother of Gerald LeVert and was a member of the band “LeVert.”
LeVert, who was being held in jail for allegedly failing to pay about $80,000 in child support was found unresponsive. Preliminary reports speculate that he may have had an anxiety attack while in custody.
More information is forthcoming, but I would like to send my sincere wishes to the LeVert family here in Atlanta. (Source)
Chase Tatum was found dead 6 days ago of an accidental drug overdose. Tatum, pictured above in a promo pic from the film Who’s Your Caddy along with Faizon Love, Big Boi and Finesse Mitchell, formerly worked as a road manager and personal assistant for OutKast. Tatum was also well known as a professional wrestler, which apparently is where he developed the back problems which lead to his addiction to pain-killers. Tatum was 34.
Chase Tatum had been recovering from back surgery to repair a degenerative disc. His father said the former wrestler had been fighting a dependence to painkillers for years but had been planning to enter a rehabilitation center.
“He was in the process of getting his life back together,” Roy Tatum said Monday. “He was confident he was going to turn things around, to live a normal life again without those painkillers.” (Source)
It appears that singer Rihanna was not the first choice for the hit single “Umbrella.” Singer/songwriter Taio Cruz originally offered the song to Mary J. Blige and Britney Spears and both turned it down. 😕 Mary didn’t think the song was right for her (I agree) but Britney’s camp said merely that “it didn’t work for her.” I guess it was fate for Rihanna because “Umbrella” …Ella…Ella is considered to be her breakthrough hit!
