RUMOR CONTROL: USHER & TAMEKA SPLIT + SOLANGE'S ALBUM SALES
Right along the announcement of his "One Night Stand" (ladies only) tour, news of Usher separating from his wife Tameka Foster made its way onto the urban blogosphere. This tidbit has got to be 100% foul (re: publicity stunt!) Usher recorded "Here I Stand" just for Tameka and he proclaimed his love for her and their son "Cinco" in EVERY interview. This rumor needs more people! On top of all of that, Usher and Tameka are expecting their second child together.

Solange's "Sol-Angel & Hadley Street Dreams" album sales are in! Solange sold 46,000 units which landed her sophomore effort at the #9 spot on the Billboard charts. Not bad at all...that's if you compared it to the estimated 10k that was rumored to be her first week sales. Solange already has another single waiting to be released and it's "T.O.N.Y." Something tells me the numbers wouldn't mean a thing to Solange...
Speaking of Solange, I do know I'm late on posting this tidbit up but FOX News fought back Solange's remarks. The FOX reporters called Solange "a little brat" among other things.
You already know Solange fought back via this recent MySpace Blog:
I Do Have an Apology to MakeOh the drama!
It is not my job to make u like me.
You see, my occupation is an ART-ist.
It is not my job to rub your back, kiss your backside or keep my mouth shut.
It is not my job to make u like how I look – that's called a model.
It is not my job to sell you on my "personality" or "like-ability"
It is my job to share with you my music and my music alone.
If you're looking to listen to a musician's music based on interviews and photos,
then spending two years of pouring my existence into a record
will give YOU no fulfillment. (I recommend Disney.com ..... its a
fave of my 3 year old son) [CONTINUE READING...]
