SHUT-DE-PHUCK UP EDITION: JAMIE FOXX SAYS THAT JAY-Z SHOULD KEEP QUIET ABOUT THE "WE ARE THE WORLD" REMAKE

Posted by: Roxxanne Roxxanne


Last week on Jamie Foxx’s Foxxhole radio show on Sirus, Jamie and his co-host Johnnie Mack, had a disagreement about the remake of "We Are the World" (WATW).

Jamie feelings were that the intention in remaking the song was to raise money for Haiti and not necessarily about the remake. He said that Quincy Jones and Lionel Richie already had plans to remake the song to commemorate the 25th anniversary prior to the Haiti Earthquake, but after the earthquake occurred they decided to remake the song to aide the Haiti relief.

Jamie’s co-host Johnnie Mack on the other hand considered the original WATW to be a “classic,” and he agreed with Jay-Z’s comment that the original song should not have been remade.

During the NBA’s All-Star weekend in Dallas this year, a reporter asked Jay-Z—who did not participate in the WATW remake, his thoughts regarding the remake. Jay-Z stated,
“I know everybody is gonna take this wrong: 'We Are the World,' I love it, and I understand the point and think it's great. But I think 'We Are the World' is like Michael Jackson's 'Thriller' to me. I don't ever wanna see it touched. I'm a fan of music. I know the plight and everything that's going on in Haiti. So I appreciate the efforts and everything, but 'We are the World' is musically untouchable like 'Thriller' is untouchable. It was a valiant effort, but for me, it's gonna be untouchable.”



Jamie questioned why Jay-Z would make such a comment if he knew beforehand that people would take it the wrong way.

“Then why say it? …why…no wait, wait stop right there!"

Why say it? I love Jay-Z, but why say it? I, uh, no, no here is the thing. Because here’s, like I, like I said, if they are going to take it wrong and you know you are Jay-Z and you’re very-- I mean everybody’s looking at you because you are the man. Why do you cut the legs out from under Lionel Richie and Quincy Jones? Because that’s what you’re doing. Now you make it seem…because on blogs and on the internet now its, now their comparing the song and they forgot about the message. They forgot the…can I finish? Why say it?


What it does…is that it causes what we’re doing now. It doesn’t make sense that we are arguing about whether the lay of the beat or whether Beyonce’s sings Halo or whether Justin Timberlake has--this was their part, this is what their giving yo! You got to talk to Quincy Jones and Lionel…maybe you should call them and then listen to them because what you talk--they don’t need money. Someone was said Lionel needed a look…Lionel owns half of Beverly Hills, he don’t need that!


“Quincy Jones, Quincy Jones has done everything for all of us young entertainers to have respect…so my whole thing is –let me finish! So if he [Jay-Z] says that its going to be taken the wrong way, if you say it, it is taken the wrong way… it not about Jay-Z, it not about Lionel Richie, it not about Quincy Jones, it’s what we do for Haiti…




Check out more of Jamie’s quotes (and audio) regarding how:
(1) Jay-Z drew attention away from the remake;
(2) today’s entertainers are fake (including himself); and
(3) Jay-Z, Alicia Keys and Beyonce would have ran at the chance, if someone not of color (e.g. white) would have asked them to participate in something.

MUSIC NEWS: MARY J. IS A ROCK 'N ROLL CHICK & JANET IS WORKING WITH JD ON NEW ALBUM

Posted by: Roxxanne Roxxanne


Is Mary J. Blige singing a new tune on her new album out later this year? Check out the answer here.



Janet Jackson, according to her homieloverfriend Jermaine Dupri, is working with him on her new album. Nooooooooo Janet! “Reconsider, read some literature on the subject. You sure? [Ph]uck it!”

Since Janet and JD started collaborating both musically and romantically, Janet’s album (minus “Someone to Call My Lover” remix…oh wait, that was before they started dating...just furthers proves my point!) haven’t been as successful (to be fair the 2004 Superbowl fiasco also a lot to do with it).

I personally think that certain artists and producers have an undeniable chemistry (i.e. JD/Usher; JD/Mariah and Janet/Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis) and produce hit records together and others not so much (i.e. JD/Janet and The Dream/Mariah).

NO SHIT SHERLOCK: FOXY RAPS ABOUT GETTING IT IN WITH JAY-Z


Posted by: Roxxanne Roxxanne

So a song that rapper IngaFoxy Brown Marchand allegedly says was made awhile ago (I hope so, cause the song sounded dated as phuck!), made its way around the internet last week.

In the song, Ms. Ill Na Na spits a couple of bars regarding how she use to have relations with Jigga. Um…tell us something we didn’t know.

I don’t know about you Chicks and Dicks, but I always thought it was quite obvious that Foxy and Jay were more than just friends. I suspect that their intimate relationship was never brought to the public’s attention because Foxy was most likely underage at the time.

Anyway, Foxy-boogie also throws around Lil Kim and Trina’s name in the song, for good measure I guess.

Read Foxy's aka “Don Diva (her words not mine)” response to the song being leaked and listen to it for yourself after the cut!

WHAT YOU SAY...SHE AIN'T NO DIVA!: KELLY CLARKSON COMMENTS ON TAYLOR SWIFT'S GRAMMYS PERFORMANCE


Posted by: Roxxanne Roxxanne

American Idol season 1 winner Kelly Clarkson took to her blog to defend the show that made her a star after Scott Borchetta, the CEO of country singer Taylor Swift’s label, took a dig at A.I. contestant’s “perfect performance” while defending Swift against comments made about her off-key performance at last weeks Grammys.

I know that was a mouth full Chicks and Dicks, but walk with me.

So Scott was all like…
"This is not 'American Idol….This is not a competition of getting up and seeing who can sing the highest note. This is about a true artist and writer and communicator. It's not about that technically perfect performance."
Then Kelly was all like…

UPDATE: KANYE SAYS DON'T BELIEVE THE HYPE!


Posted by: Roxxanne Roxxanne

A few days ago The Chick Fix reported that there was a suspect report from the New York Post that Kanye had kirked out on a plane because he wanted him and his assistant to be bumped up from business class to first class.

Well like we figured the story was a fugazi. Kanye took to his Kanye Universecity blog to set the record straight on what really occurred.
I feel bad that people believe this kind of stuff or any random rumor that is taken as fact because 'it's on the internet.' This rumor is particularly ironic because I was actually happy with a business class seat and was offered a seat in first class. A friend of mine was sitting in coach so asked if they could bump him up to business instead of putting me in first. There was absolutely no altercation in any way. There's been many a time where I've given someone in coach my business or first class seat in order to sit next to a friend I bumped into. I really could care less about where I sit on the plane. It's hard to deal with the rumors sometimes. As a good person with a warm heart, it does bother me. I'm not bigger than feeling pain, embarrassment, stress and worry. Have you ever been lied on??? How does it make you feel??? You wanna tell everybody it's not true right? Thank you to all my fans who still love and support me even though it's not the trend right now! I'm sleeping in the studio and I won't let you guys down.
Well there you have it Chicks and Dicks.

Note to New York PostGet your phucking mind right mami and stick to the script and strive to be more credible in the 2-10!

Posted by: Roxxanne Roxxanne

Country singer LeAnn Rimes was spotted shielding her face from the paparazzi after exiting a doctor’s office in Beverly Hills yesterday, when “Queen on the Sceneaka Queenie came to her rescue, or so Queenie thought.

Queenie is an infamous homeless woman known for rescuing celebrities from the paparazzi.

In the past, Queenie has helped such celebrities as: Betty White, Reba McEntire and Nicollette Sheridan just to name a few.

Well apparently little Ms. Homewrecker Rimes didn’t want to be saved…hoes never do! Queenie was arrested and is reportedly still in jail.

Damn, Rimes tried to take Queenie out the game, like the feds did Rayful! I hope one of those celebrities that she has aided in past can come through with some bail money soon.

Watch this hilarious clip of Queenie in action as she rescues American Idol runner up Katherine McPhee (it gets funny around 1:07 minute mark) from the paparazzi.
