“One Man’s Opinion” by Gordon Curvey
I am always looking for stories for my websites and I saw this story to write about here on “Music Inner City News Magazine” It is a rumor that Beyonce and Rihanna are having a so called “beef”
Word is Beyonce was due to drop her new song song “Formation”, days before Rihanna’s new release “ANTI”, but Rihanna dropped her new release like it was due to be dropped. So there is word out and about that Beyonce has tried to outshine Rihanna.
Recently Rihanna did a interview with Vogue and she addressed the ongoing talk about her rivalry with Beyonce. She said “Here’s the deal, people just get excited to feast on something that’s negative. Something that’s competitive. Something that’s, you know, a rivalry. And that’s just not what I wake up to. Because I can only do me. And nobody else is going to be able to do that.”
I agree with Rihanna. The media is looking for a beef. Just because Ri is signed to Beyonce’s husband, Jay Z’s label and this release stuff happened the media saying wow what is really going on. When in reality most likely nothing is going on.
As a fan of good music, I do not give a damn who release was out first or not. Who gives a damn ladies and gentlemen? Both of ladies are very very talented as we all know. At times I really worry about Rihanna. It seems she is confused. At times she seems to be really out there mentally with some of stuff she says and some of outfits she wears. Just like Miley Cyrus.
And word is her career is suffering right now. Because it is a fact, her sales of her music is down. Unlike Adele or Taylor Swift. People are asking what is wrong with Rihanna. Well let’s see what the future holds. Ri is younger than B. I will be listening and watching what is really going on with Rihanna. Because I am not worried about Beyonce. She will always stand above the rest in book.

ARTICLE FROM s2smagazine.com (Full story click here)
As music fans know, singer Rihanna’s life has had it’s share of drama. We are know about the situation with r&b singer Chris Brown. That was terrible. Something a young and beautiful female should not have to go though. Brown was flat out wrong to put a hand on a female.
But he did and the world knows about it. But Rihanna and Brown have went on with their careers. Both of them have had hit songs on the charts in the last few years. That’s a good thing.
Recently their have been rumors that Breezy and Rihanna have been tweeting other AND maybe seeing each other at very secret locations so the media cannot find them. Because we know if that happened it would be on “The Insider”, “Access Hollywood”, “Extra” and on every gossip website on the net.
Now there are rumors that Rihanna’s family is very worried about her health. Readers if you see pics and read stories about her you can see why they are worried. I have seen pics of her looking wild and half naked and doing sex like actions at her concerts etc.
It could be true that she needs some help……maybe rehab. If so she needs to get the help NOW before it is to late and she ends up like MJ or others. And we do not want to see that. I hope her family will sit down and have a long talk with her and discuss her life.
We want Rihanna to be around for a long time so we can listen to the great music she puts out for us the listening public. Gordon Curvey

If you are a music fan you have to realize that Rihanna is a very talented and beautiful young lady. She has created her own style and image unlike many other young singers.
Some think she has gone over the line in some of her actions on stage during her concerts but most do not think that way because when you go to one of her concerts one thing for sure you will be entertained.
Yes the the situation with Chris Brown was not good. It was terrible. I was in Los Angeles with Twin Tammy J for the Clive Davis Awards and Grammy Awards when the incident took place.
Everyone wondered why Brezzy(Chris Brown) came to the Davis event by himself and did not talk to anyone on the red carpet. And then everyone’s phones blew up about the problem of Rihanna getting beat up. It was CRAZY!
I just hope Rihanna finds a good man one day. But she is still young so I hope she takes her time and just concentrate on her career.
I hope she has a lot of role models she can look up to besides her parents for advice. I know she is tight with Jay Z. She has a long career ahead of her and wish her the best. Beyonce, Lady GaGa and Rihanna are three ladies who sing and entertain us too. Again, the future is BIG for Rihanna. Gordon Curvey

Singer Chris Brown it seems will never be able to get away from the beating up of singer Rihanna in Los Angeles a few years ago. It just will not happen. I was in L.A. when the incident happened.
Yes he recently topped the charts with the hot track “Dueces” but did you see Brown all over the place like he was before the Rihanna incident? No you did not.
The other day Brown found himself AGAIN getting upset. Why? Well Robin Roberts of Good Morning America went on to ask Chris about the Rihanna incident. That is a ticking time bomb these days when ever some one asks about the Rihanna incident.
So please read the link above to see what happened when Roberts asked Brown about Rihanna. Their has been numorous incidents where Chris has blown up when asked about the incident with Brown hanging up in the middle of a interview including here on KUBE93.
When will it stop for Chris Brown? It seems never. Hang in the Brezzy!! Gordon Curvey

This year I was posted up in snowy and cold Seattle to watch the 2010 American Music Awards. I have been lucky enough to cover the AMA’s only once. Why I do not understand but anyway I always give my opinions of the “urban” acts of the show right here.
The show started with a great with a performance by Rihanna. She looked a little nervous. Her dancing skills need to improve a little but the female can sing so she make up for the lack of dancing skills.
I enjoyed the song by rocker Kid Rock as well as the performance by Enrique Iglesias and Pitball. I really liked the performance.
I also enjoyed the performance by Ne-Yo. It was one of the best of the night. Also young Justin Bieber performance was real good with the gospal group in the background. He got a standing ovation. Bieber also won four awards.
Usher performance was great too. Full of energy and great dancing. The show ended with a performance by The Backstreet Boys and New Kids On The Block together. It was a great ending of the show. Shout out to the AMA’s for putting on a energetic and exciting show year after year. Gordon Curvey

Brezzy aka Chris Brown is keeping up with the work he has to do for his “love battle” with r&b singer Rihanna in L.A. during Grammy week.
I was in L.A. when the incident happened. Might of fact everyone was wondering why Brown entered the Clive Davis Pre-Grammy party without Rihanna.
Then the next day, everyone got on their phones that Brown was picked up for beating up Rihanna and folks could not beleive it.
So as we know Brezzy was given 180 days of community service and is on probation for five years so he has to fly right or Chris is going to the big house just like T.I.
Chris is doing every thing he is told to do by the courts and is doing well. Plus his career is picking back up after his big smash hit “Dueces”. But you still do not see Brown as visible as he was before the Rihanna incident. Maybe that will happen in time.
So both Rihanna and Brown are doing well with hits on the charts. I hope both of them well and I hope both of them will learn the true meaning of love. They are both young. And I am sure Brezzy will never hit a lady again. Gordon Curvey

“One Man’s Opinion” by Gordon Curvey
As I get ready to have a serious operation this week I have some thoughts I want to share regarding the sports radio situation here in Seattle, Washington (U.S.)
The two stations are 710 ESPN and KJR. 710 ESPN has been on the air for a year or so and KJR for 19 years in the Seattle/Tacoma area. For 19 years KJR has NEVER had a African American with his or hers own regular program. Currently their total workforce has a grand total of ZERO African Americans the last time I checked. That includes producers, over the air, sales and management.
I will talk about 710 ESPN in Part 2 of this story but I want to discuss KJR in Part 1. KJR constantly blasts African Americans and people of color in a negative way with out the other point of view from a African American or person of color. THIS IS UNFAIR!
Words like “THUG” is used by the all white staff of KJR against African Americans and people of color ONLY. The word “THUG” is a code word for the “N” word. It is used by callers and hosts. This word is NEVER used against whites in the sports world. NEVER.
KJR management just hired two more whites to be on the air, Jeff Aaron and Hot Shot Scott. Scott worked at sister station KUBE93 and Aaron used to a sports jock on KJR. Was fired or laid off and now he is back.
It is like the management of KJR do not care about diversity over the air. Or having a African American with his or hers own program. Stephen A. Smith (a African American) is on KJR at 3am but it is not a local show. It is a Fox national program.
A few years ago, their was a meeting held with African American community leaders and KJR management in which PROMISES WERE MADE BY KJR MANAGEMENT. Promises that included working on diversity in hiring and over the air. Promises where made to myself and other community folks like former Seattle NAACP chairman Carl Mack.
But then Mack left town and KJR backed off the promises that was made. In other words, KJR management LIED TO ME AND CARL MACK AND OTHERS. This is wrong. KJR management has shown with the hiring of Scott and Aaron that they DO NOT care about having a African American over the air on KJR. Period.
KJR is like a frat club or Elk’s Club in Vermont or South Dakota. No blacks in sight. They are friends and buddies instead of workmates. They call and text each other after work etc. Even the bumper music is all white most of the time. Bumper music is a term for the music played in the background after a commercial etc. No T.I. or Drake or Jay Z or Kanye West or Lil Wayne or Rihanna or classic soul like Stevie Wonder or The Isley Bros etc. Instead it is Aerosmith or ZZ Top and The Little River Band etc or even on Mitch Levy’s show, Frank Sinatra etc.
Issues of race comes up all the time on KJR and the all white staff CANNOT RELATE. They do not have a clue on the topic. Also it hurts me hearing the KJR jocks constantly interviewing African Americans THEY CANNOT RELATE TO what so ever. These cats are from the inner city or deep south etc. Hearing Mitch Levy and Dave Mahler and Ian Furness and now Aaron interviewing these inner city cats turns my stomach!!
The only jocks I like on KJR is Dick Fain and Elise Woodward. Yes they are white, but Woodward played basketball and has dealt with African Americans and people of color and Fain coaches at Mt. Rainier High School and deals with inner city cats all the time.
This is Part 1 of “Lack Of Diversity On Sports Radio” Part 2 I will deal with local sports writers who are “in bed” with sports radio, Mitch Levy’s “Bigger Dance” contest and discuss 710 ESPN and more.
Please watch “Music Inner City TV” Ustream programs live and on-demand. We will feature music videos and discuss issues in entertainment, urban sports and soon we will have contests to give away cd’s etc.
Just click the Ustream links above.

“One Man’s Opinion” by Gordon Curvey
Because of negative feelings towards yours truly by B.E.T’s Zabrina Horton, our media outlet was turned down from coverage of this years B.E.T Awards in L.A. So I was at home watching like millions of others.
It was a great show. A El DaBarge comeback (great to see him back on the scene) a Kanye comeback, great performances by Diddy, Slim Shady, Alicia Keys, Drake and many others.
But none of them touched the performance by singer Chris Brown. The disgraced Chris Brown. The one who beat up Rihanna.
Brown’s performance of MJ was the best I’ve seen since Jackson’s death. The best. Near the end of his set, Brown broke down and cried and could not finish his performance. MJ’s big brother Jermaine, walked with Chris off the stage.
I see on the net today that some people think Brown was faking tears. I don’t thing Brown was faking. It was real. I was a combination of what he has been though in the past months and his love of MJ.
It is a fact that Chris Browns cd sales have dropped big time. His career has suffered since his problems with Rihanna. He has had run ins with reporters, radio dj’s etc. The question is readers, will Chris Brown every be back on top with a hit song again? Time will tell.
Look for Chris Brown’s brand new music videos on Seatlle’s own “Music Inner City TV” on Comcast on Demand all over Western Washington state 24/7. Plus other artists videos and much more!
We also air on SCAN-TV ch 29-77 in the Seattle area every Saturday night at 9:30pm.

“One Man’s Opinion” by Gordon Curvey
Singer Chris Brown is doing something he thought he would never do. And that is to ask for his fans support in buying his new cd and is also asking radio to play his music.
Ever since his problem of beating of singer Rihanna, he has had problems with his career.
It is for sure not like it was before the problems came down on him.
But in reality Brown cannot blame anyone but himself for his problems. He brought them on himself. He should have did what he did to the beautiful Rihanna.
Having said that, the question is this. Is it time for fans to forgive Brown and buy his music? Is it time for radio to start playing his music again? Truth be told I do not even hear any past Chris Brown music on the radio like “Kiss-Kiss-Kiss” and others. Do you?
Brown is doing every thing courts have asked him to do and more. He is even going to schools and community centers to talk to talk to youth etc.
What will it take for radio and fans to support Chris Brown like before the Rihanna incident? It does not help when programs on TV like “The Insider” and “Showbiz Tonight” continue to blast Brown when ever they can.
This story is very very interesting. Let’ see if the negative treatment of Chris Brown will continue. For his sake and career, I hope the negativity stops.
