It looks like singer Mariah Carey is looking to change the laws of girlfriend/boyfriend relationships. According to TMZ, the superstar songstress wants billionaire ex-fiancé James Packer to pay her $50 million after their recent split. According to the gossip site, Carey says Packer got her to move from New York to Los Angeles, uprooting her life, so that he could be near his children. Packer hasn’t commented publicly regarding Carey’s demands. There’s no telling how this will  pan out. Stay tune.  The Philadelphia 76ers organization has issued an apology to R&B singer Sevyn Streeter over the controversy surrounding their decision to bar her from performing the national anthem  due to a shirt she wore. They’ve even invited her back to perform at the game of her choice. As previously reported, Streeter was scheduled to perform the national anthem at an Philadelphia 76ers/OKC Thunder game, but the performance was cancelled because she wore a t-shirt that read “We Matter.” She later spoke with the Associated Press and explained the entire ordeal saying that about two minutes before she was to go on, she was told she couldn’t wear her shirt while performing. In addition to the singer/songwriter, many Sixers players voiced their displeasure over the organization’s decision to cancel the performance. At any rate, it’s nice to see  both sides working things out and moving forward. Motown Record’s rising star Kevin Ross has released the visual for his single “Be Great.” The singer/songwriter walks through the streets of Washington DC while belting out the inspiring song. Special guest Chaz French joins him on the same streets later to spit his socially conscious verse. The song is definitely worthy of a listen. To say that 2016 has been good to Anderson .Paak would be an understatement. The Los Angeles based rapper/singer  began the year be releasing his sophomore effort “Malibu” in January, followed be “Yes Lawd!” earlier this month, which was a collaboration with producer Knwledge, under the name NxWorries. Now, he’s released the visual for the single “Come Down.” The clip takes place somewhere in Malibu with .Paak and the Free Nationals hyping up an already electrified party of dancers. In between the moving and grooving, the camera follows other party goers, including two domino players in an argument with a man who can’t hold his liquor while .Paak drums along onstage. According to Complex magazine, the Los Angeles native wanted to channel the greats with the new clip, trying to create a vibe not unlike the one Ernie Barnes’ “Sugar Shack”  and Marvin Gaye’s cover for his classic album “I Want You.”
