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

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

This is kinda cute – Common interviews Queen Latifah in 60 Seconds, asking random questions like “investigate a creepy sound or hell nah” lol. These two have a great chemistry, cool to see two Hip Hop greats getting along and having so much fun together. I think I may check out their new movie “Just Wright” – may.
Peace, Love, Common & Queen Latifah

Queen Erykah sat down with Mo’Nique for a chat last night, check it out as I’m just about to press play myself.In Part 1 Badu speaks eloquently about her video “Window Seat” and what, despite all the controversy, she wants the world to take away from it. She also discusses her time in Cuba and how that trip changed her life. In part 2 she talks about being a mother, the meaning behind each of their names and the 5 women in her life. Part 3 sees her discussing the new album, the process behind it and touring. Oh yea, and she also urges Queen Latifah & Jill Scott to go on tour again – the mind boggles.
Hit the jump to peep part 2 & 3…
Peace, Love & Erykah Badu

Chris Brown got agitated with a radio DJ after he complained that the radio station had not been supporting his material. The DJ explained the reason behind that was simply because he hasn’t had any ‘hits’ lately. Brown then got upset, stormed out while cursing “I ain’t doing this sh*t”.
…I feel for his PR team. My advice: Brown, lay low for a minute, you didn’t really let the dust settle. You should have done your big interviews about the ‘incident’ then disappeared for a year or so, come back with some ill music (I still stand by “I Can Transform Ya” being one of the biggest R&B/Pop records of last year). But now, with all this and the ‘mixtape’ stuff – you’re not helping yourself mate. #justsaying.
Peace, Love & Chris Brown
