N’SYNC was not the only band to rekindle their pop group flame--girl band Danity Kane also reunited last night at the VMAS. The ladies arrived at the awards in a chic black and white theme; it was apparent that the beautiful quintet was noticeably missing a fifth member, D. Woods.
You may know reality scare "star" Aubrey O’Day from Making The Band, or from being in former girl group Danity Kane, or butting heads on Celebrity Apprentice, or perhaps her reality show on Oxygen. Where ever you’ve seen her, you know her big mouth always seem to get her into trouble. Well apparently it has landed her in hot water again. This time it's not because of what she said, but it's what she sang.
In the finale of All About Aubrey, she sings on top of a track produced by her friend Adonis Shropshire. Apparently, Adonis created that particular beat for ANOTHER artist, and didn't have the right to pass it on to Aubrey. Now, the company that claims it owns the beat is suing Aubrey, Oxygen and Adonis for contributing to her allegedly jacking the beat.
Born and raised in Jersey, Steve Powers knew at a young age that he wanted to pursue the entertainment and music culture that the Big Apple had to offer. In college, Steve's aspirations became a reality, as he quickly became the go-to emcee for spring break Acapulco. Today, Steve is one of the most sought after DJ's in the country, performing at the hottest nightclubs in NYC and all over the nation. His music defies the boundaries of any genre or style, which is perhaps why superstars such as Rihanna, Derek Jeter and Leonardo DiCaprio have enjoyed his performances. We were lucky enough to sit down with the man whose incredible energy is able to get anyone on the dance floor.
What do you really expect when you sign with one of the grimiest moguls in the business? Diddy is known for wrecking the careers of basically everyone who signed with Bad Boy. Mase, Shyne, 112, Total, Danity Kane, Black Rob and the list goes on. Now Yung Joc is feeling the burn of the Diddy workout called getting sh*t on.
Joc claims Bad Boy and Block Entertainment have not been honoring their contractual obligations. He told Billboard.com that they have not paid him his royalties and advances for his first two albums and they charged “outrageous clearance fees” for his collaborations.
For all of you lovers of reality TV and Diddy’s musical failures, this one is for you. MTV has decided to have a special on the former Bad Boy Records girl group Danity Kane. It will show viewers the beginnings of the troupe as well as the events that led to their untimely yet predictable downfall.
“It's hidden scenes and new information revealed of the backstage struggles of Danity Kane," says Perry Dance- producer of the show. "The new scenes in it allow you to better see how things were happening within the group ... now that you know where they ended up, you can find clues and secrets."
Being fired from your band on live TV doesn’t mean you have to quit music altogether. D.Woods is proving this by moving on from the shambles that we used to call Danity Kane. Woods told MTV that she is ready to move on and make music on her own. She says that fans can expect something from her very soon.
“I have a single that will be released in late spring, early summer. I’ve been doing a lot of studio work for myself and writing for other artists and projects,” she told MTV.com. These days, she is doing more than just music. With a background in acting and theater, she wants to do things like write for TV and film. She said she has already been pitching new things. Let’s hope it’s not another lazily thought out reality series.
If I were a recording artist looking for a label to call my home, I definitely would not even think about going to Bad Boy Records. The company used to be home to phenomenal artists like 112 and Faith Evans, but alas, they all mysteriously “left”. Nevertheless, the same saga is still going on. Aundrea Fimbres, the pint sized brunette member of Danity Kane, was recently fired by Diddy. Not very surprising, since Diddy is the King of doing whatever Diddy wants. It just sucks that her and Dawn had to go through the whole season without knowing the fate of their group.
