Kanye West has added his epic verses to the remix of her first single Diamonds, which is off her 7th studio album-Unapologetic.
Singer Keyshia Cole has covered Rolling Out Magazine and during a sit down interview with the magazine, she opened up about her relationship with her NBA star husband-Daniel Gibson and also her relationship with her mother and sisters.
She also talked about her upcoming album and others…
Check out excerpts from the interview below
RO: The title of your album, Woman to Woman, what’s the meaning behind it?
KEYSHIA COLE: It’s for women who have been through similar situations and can relate to me. It’s for all women. It’s also a personal statement. It has been 10 years since I signed to Intersope. I became a woman before everyone’s eyes. The [photo composite] illustration on the cover was created because some of the songs aren’t exactly about me, but they are stories that a lot of women can relate to.
The last album didn’t do as well as your other work. Why didn’t it resonate with fans?
I was pregnant. I was going through a lot with my family at the time. Some of the songs were about them. It was an extremely emotional time and it reflected on the album. When you’re pregnant, you’re 10 times more emotional about everything. There was just a lot going on back then.
During that time, you also fell in love. Do you remember the day you realized Daniel was the one?
I thought he was beautiful the first time we met. We had been talking for months before we physically met each other. We had ups and downs in our relationship, and we grew from it. When you make a commitment to marriage, you have to be serious about it. You can love the person you are with, but you have to be sure that you’re ready to make that commitment. This is not only for when times are good — marriage is for the remainder of our lives. [It’s for] building a life and making the best life for your children.
Are there any couples in entertainment you admire for being examples of a strong family?
I respect Beyoncé and Jay-Z, because I know how hard it can be to stay in love in this business. In the beginning, it appeared as if Jay-Z knew Beyoncé had work to do. I respect that. You can’t go into a relationship trying to change someone. You have to grow with that person and go through everything with them. That’s one thing that I noticed and I respect about them. Of course, I’m not with them every day, but that’s what I see from the outside looking in.”
Since the marriage between Alicia Keys and Swizz Beatz, I am sure there is no single day she has not been called a homewrecker…
After allegations by Swizz Beatz’s ex-wife that her husband stepped out of their marriage, Alicia has on several platforms been attacked with the homewrecker question…
Covering the latest issue of JET Magazine which hits stands next week, she spoke about being a homewrecker…She said that she chose not to address that past situation because, “there’s no need to fight what’s not true”.
[They] were apart for some time before we ever got together…that doesn’t matter to those who take pleasure in trying to knock others down…there’s no need to fight what’s not true…
She also spoke about how strong their love is as a couple…
I’d never met a person where I could be fully myself…Swizz and I live in each other’s shadow. So we can occupy the same space and there is nothing but equality. There’s something really powerful about that.
True to her words, Rihanna has dropped a new single featuring Chris Brown and the title is ‘Nobody’s business’.
I am sure you know what they are talking about…All of us who are poking our noses into their affairs, they are telling us it is not our business…
“Nobody’s Business,” will be on on Rihanna’s new Unapologetic LP…

Surely, everything that has a beginning has an end. Who thought a time will come when Kris Kardashian and Bruce Jenner will end their relationship?
It is happening…
According to RadarOnline.com reports that Bruce Jenner , 63, is talking to divorce lawyer because he’s tired of Kardashian ignoring him and flirting with virile young men under his nose.
“Bruce feels that Kris treats him like a doormat, and he’s had enough. She constantly belittles his appearance and complains to mutual friends that he’s a boring old fart. Then she has the gall to flaunt her relationships with younger guys in his face,” a source revealed to the National Enquirer.
It’s true the couple’s marital woes played out on the last season of “Keeping Up With The Kardashians,” when Kris admitted to seeing Todd Waterman, the man she cheated on first husband Robert Kardashian with. On camera, Bruce was livid about his wife meeting up with her ex, but this past summer Kris denied rumors her marriage was in trouble because of the incident.
“He hates it when cronies at the Country Club jokingly call him Bruce Kardashian,” divulged an insider. “Kris is continually perceived as the moneymaker and the one who wears the pants in the family, and he’s sick and tired of the humiliation.
“One of Bruce’s pals who’s a sports entertainment lawyer has helped Bruce value the assets of the Kardashian-Jenner empire if he moves forward with a split. He’s also talked to a divorce attorney buddy about potential custody arrangements for his two girls with Kris.”
Contrary to rumours that after Chris Brown assaulted Rihanna, Jay Z threatened to destroy his career, he has told Power 106 radio host Big Boy that, Jay never threaten to do so.
In a recent interview on Power 106 radio, Chris Brown made it clear that, it never happened and that “People like to take it and run with it, because they have nothing else,”
“It was cordial,” Brown said of the meeting between him and Hov backstage at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center in October. “It was real respectful. It was nothing like that. I went to the Center to see the show.”

Have you also been asking yourself what happened Kim Kardashian’s fabolous fashion sense since she started dated Kanye West?
When it comes to fashion, Kim K was building a brand name but all of a sudden, she has dropped to the bottom as her recent appearances have been nothing to talk about.
Just recently, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West were spotted in London doing a dinner. Wearing a velvet, one-piece jumpsuit, slicked back bun, and finished the look with some Christian Louboutin pumps on her feet, Kim Kardashian failed to pull fashion together again-considering the fashion icon she claims to be (and Kanye’s stand in fashion).
Rihanna has strongly kicked started the promo of her upcoming album-Unapologetic . Yesterday during one of her promo stops, she sat down with Bravo’s Andy Cohen for an intimate facebook discussion with her fans.
During the discussion,RiRi talked about her newest duet, “Nobody’s Business” with Chris Brown, her desire to be the black Madonna and her career.
It was an interesting chat, read highlights below
There’s a duet with Chris Brown. He’s saying, “I wanna make you mine, and it a’int nobody’s business.” And you’re going back and forth, so is the message of that song as obvious as it appears?
“Nobodies Business” is basically the way I look at everything regarding my personal life. Even though you have to witness it, it’s being documented at every second, it is still mine. When it comes to my music, I’ll give and I’ll give and I’ll give. I just feel like I need to keep a little bit for me and I’ll get to decide.
It still becomes a conversation because you’re putting it out there.
I’m not putting it out there as much as it’s just there. I can’t run away from there. If I had it my way, it would be really nobody’s business. I can’t escape that, and it sucks, but whatever.
I read early in your career that you wanted to be the black Madonna.
You know what, Madonna is one of those artist that she was very self expressive, she was bold, she was fearless, and all those things that I looked up to. As a young woman I wanted to be all of those things. I wanted to really just be myself, feel free to express it and not be afraid of what people would think about it.
At what point do you feel like you have made it? At what point do you feel like you are the Black Madonna?
There will never be another Madonna. At this point I am just so good with being Rihanna. I love her. I’m cool, I’m OK. Madonna is still the sh-t, she’s still the queen, she’s awesome.
Madonna is actually 30 years older than you are. Where do you want to be in 30 years?
In 30 years, I will be 54? I want to be skinny. I want to be fierce. I hope my tits are still sitting up. These are the things that I really want at 54. Nothing else will matter at that point.
Why is the album called unapologetic?
Because it’s very true. It’s raw, it’s honest, and it’s story telling. Each song, and even the way it flows on the album, it takes you on a journey all the way to…that’s just the half of it. It can only be one way, there can only be one truth, and you can’t apologize for that. That’s why I call it that.
Who inspires you the most?
My grandma, still. She’s just a complete woman. If I can even become half of that, I will be in great hands.
What song do you crank on the radio in the car?
Ratchet Navy coming out…”Bands”, “Love” and “Pop That.”
Is it hard to remain you with all of your success at such a young age?
No. It can be easy to be led astray, or caught up and sucked into the fame, and the bright lights, but I have alot of people around me that I have known since my childhood. A lot of people I trust. My big brothers Jay-Z, Jabron, and Ty Ty. They are my back bone and I’m in super good hands with them. They keep me grounded, they keep me in check. My mother is still my mother, and she also checks me on the regular.
How did the hurricane have an effect on you as a person?
It’s really difficult to see something so tragic going on and not being able to do anything about it. It’s nothing you can control. It’s mother nature and it gets worse and it gets worse and you keep holding your breath. It’s really sad what happened here. Tomorrow I will be donating $100,000 to the Food Bank of NYC. I’m also doing a listening party at the 40/40. Everybody’s asked to donate some blankets, bleach, cleaning, brooms, sleeping bags, and they get to listen to the album if they donate. And they have to donate it to the Daily News Hurricane Relief Fund.
What has been the highlight of your career?
I had a couple moments where I felt like [it was the highlight of my career]. My first Grammy, I felt like “Oh My God! This is not real.” Like, my dream was not even to get a Grammy, but here I am with one. It was sick. What I wanted to do my whole life was buy my mom a house so when I was able to do that, I was like “YEAH.” That was just a dream.
Spill the tea. I say a name, you say that first thing that comes to mind.
Kanye West: Genius.
Jay-Z: Even more genius.
Beyonce: Gorgeous. A stab to my self esteem.
Mariah Carey: Her voice is an instrument. Its unreal really.
