Rico Love, who’s produced tracks for Beyonce and Usher, talks about working with the R&B sensations and his hopes to produce for country artists like Taylor Swift and Keith Urban.
“This year, celebrities attending the 2010 NAACP Image Awards were treated to a “new paradigm in hospitality” with the “Backstage Experience.” Produced by Idesigns and Headline Entertainment, Shrine Auditorium special guests were lavished with first-class lounging and celebrity swag from handpicked vendors.
We catch Chris Rock right as he exited the main stage and headed backstage, when he was surprised by Jamie Foxx who was laying in wait for his departure. While exchanging congratulations and having a intimate conversation about various things including Michael Jackson, Tanicha Arnold pops by and even Carlos Santana steps up to congratulate Chris and Jamie.
Inside the Backstage Experience, we run into John Legend, in the process of being gifted with many ornaments of swag. Upon greeting a African royally-commissioned painter, Legend humorously mistakes a painting of Barack Obama to have female breasts! Hilarious….
We then tail Wyclef Jean and his beautiful wife about backstage, who have a gracious time with the various artists and vendors before heading off to an after-party. A warm, intimate peek into the world of Wyclef Jean.
Later, we have a brief word with the stunning Keri Hilson, Quest?Love from the Roots, Ryan Brown, and Keke Palmer.”
“Three days, y’all — let’s party!” Lil Wayne said on Saturday (February 27). Now that his dental surgery is done, Weezy is expected to begin serving his year in jail on weapons charges Tuesday, but he’s making sure he’s seen and heard before his departure. Of late, Weezy has taken to Twitter (much more on than in a minute) and Ustream to communicate with fans. On Saturday evening, Weezy and his favorite videographer, DJ Scoob Doo, sent MTV News a clip we’re going to call “Nino Brown: The Road to Rikers, Part 1” (as in Rikers Island, the New York jail that Wayne’s heading to).
