"Vibe, one of the nation’s leading popular music magazines, is closing immediately, a spokeswoman said Tuesday.
Word leaked to music and media news Web sites early this afternoon, and the spokeswoman, Tracy Nguyen, said the Vibe staff would be formally notified in a meeting at 2 p.m. She said she did not know how many people would be laid off as a result of the closure.Vibe’s closure leaves just one large-circulation magazine, The Source, focusing on hip-hop and R&B. The Source has had its own troubles, going through a bankruptcy and emerging under new ownership last year. A rock-focused magazine, Blender, folded last year..."
The final cover will be topless Christina Milian and her fiance, The-Dream. They sucha mix-match couple to me, and I was hoping for a better cover but hey, just as long as the final issue is bomb. Below is some of my favorite covers.
Hov lil brother, Kanye West, also dropped his new video, "Street Lights". Quite boring if you asked me. I like this song, I would have expected more. I think Yeezy is gettin lazy. Can't you just come up with a hot concept? We all know your artistic dude! If he was gna make a cartoon music video, should of went back to the guy that made "Heartless". Now, THAT dude was on point.

Oh, but these bad boys weren't done! They released another video the SAME day, "Truth Is A Lie". Doing big star tings, huh? Anyway, this video is OK. The scenario, the feel of it is cool. The Asian chick in the video is mad random to me. Don't wanna spoil it tho, you guys will see. So, tell me what do you think about these two vids? Love it? Hate it? TELL REN!
Last but not least, my favorite rapper, Jay-Z, released a trailer for the street banger, "D.O.A. (Death Of Autotune)". If you wanna see the rest of it, it will premiere after the BET Awards on Sunday (let me not get into the awards). I love Jay-Z's videos. They're always epic.
My THROWBACK VIDEO of the moment is SWV "Right Here (Human Nature Remix)". This was ALWAYS my favorite song from them, since I was a young Ren. Most girls like their known songs like "Weak" or "Rain". Mmmm, cool songs but not for me. A bit too mushy/girly. This song to me is mad laidback and the Human Nature beat doesn't hurt ONE bit.
Idk what other song I would like from them if they ain't come out with this remix. =/

Until... little miss Ciara came over and shut it down. Like I said before, I used to be a big Ciara fan. I totally bought her album. I was so infatuated with the song and video for "Goodies", I learned the WHOLE dance (still know it). I usually always do that to most videos I like from Beyonce, Ciara, etc.
But yeah, when she first came on the scene, she was immediately on every nigga "Bitch I Wanna Fuck" list. This song is still really cute. It's like a taunt girls can sing to guys (LMAO!). Beyonce mastered the "Uh-Oh!" dance but Cici got the booty poppin art DOWN PACKED! Owww! Shoutouts to that.
