Yesterday Questlove of the legendary Roots crew sat down with Billboard for an indepth Q&A – peep part 1 up top and then parts 2-5 after the jump. Also, peep the last video where he gives one lucky person a chance to win a signed drumhead.
As a maaaaaaasssshoooosive Roots fan and of course, Questlove fan, I’m about to press play on this myself – so, can’t comment too tough on what he talks about, but you know who this is? This guy is always mad interesting to listen to. Enjoy.
Peace, Love & Questlove

I don’t get why folks are hating on this track? She sounds incredible on it, don’t ever get it twisted, Miss Aguilera is one of the best singers of our generation. She’s been working it out for over 10 years and of course, new artists have come through – but that’s ok? I never understood when people act like there isn’t enough room for everyone? It’s ok to like GaGa AND Rihanna AND Christina AND Beyonce – you don’t have to choose.
Peace, Love & Christina Aguilera

Still love this track. Definitely one of Keys’ best tracks to date.
Peace, Love & Alicia Keys

I fondly remember meeting Ra-Re Valverde in London back in 2008 – at the time PinBoard was still a fledging blog and Miss Valverde blessed us with some time for an interview. We had a great chat covering just about everything – music, life, relationships, the future and more – if you haven’t already, take a dive into our archives and read the interview.
…But back to the subject at hand – Ra-Re sent over her brand new video for a new track called “Because” – a stirring, haunting track featuring Valverde’s distinguishable vocals. I re-visit her debut album frequently, simply because I adore her voice so much – this track is a departure from what is featured on A Beautiful Mess – it’s a good departure, I’m loving this.
Peace, Love & Ra-Re Valverde

Pretty sure all this talk of Bey and Kelly disliking each other started on some gossip blog, but Kelly felt the need to defend her friendship with her fellow DC-3 members saying “we don’t hate each other”. The reporter mentioned Beyonce releasing her new (unexpected) video just as Rowland dropped her new single – to which she replied “everyone’s putting stuff out, Ciara puts something out, GaGa puts something out”.
…Not buying this supposed beef to be honest. Some people are saying “they haven’t been seen together for months now” – erm, I don’t see some of my friends for weeks at a time – thank goodness we have something called – the phone! They might not be in the same place, but that’s not to say they’re not speaking? Really. But then, on the flipside, you never know what goes on behind closed doors, but for now – I remain blissfully optimistic lol.
Peace, Love & Kelly Rowland
