Kanye West and Kim Kardashian’s adorable daughter North has officially made her debut in the Fall Issue of CR Fashion Book. How cute is this little girl?
Turning 16 is a big deal for any teenage girl, even if your dad is the president of the United States. Malia Obama, who recently turned 16 last month convinced the first Lady and her father, Barack Obama, to give her permission to attend the fest Lollapalooza which was held Friday-Sunday in their native town of Chicago.
Though audience members paid tickets to see the show, Malia Obama became the highlight of the fest and even shut down twitter from the attendees of the show who reportedly tweeted about standing next to the daughter of the president. Although Malia wasn’t allowed to take photographs with others, she broke the rules with one guest and applied this generation’s saying, YOLO and took a selfie. (You Only Live Once.)

Tell us about when you first got involved with music?
Marshall Dane: I got my first gig at age 15. The local café wanted an artist to perform every Friday and Saturday evenings..but couldn’t pay the going wage of $100 to the guy from Honey Moon Suite, so he offered me the gig for $35 and a piece of cheesecake…I accepted and have been on a musical pursuit ever since.
How important did music play in your life growing up?
MD: It was my family’s way of communicating. My father brought his guitar to all our church and family gatherings….my mother would play the piano at church and as we’d fall asleep at night.
Who are some of your musical influences past or present?
MD: Besides my parents and grandparents…. Johnny Denver, Kenny Rogers, Jon Bon Jovi
Why country music?
Wholesome, honest, values:)
Tell us about your current video “Alcohol Abuse,” and how that concept came about?
The video was our biggest undertaking to date. Definitely worth making this step forward. We were helped by fans, friends, and family to make this vid, and it turned out awesome and fun fun fun! Amazing how you take 13 hours of filming and mash it into 3.5 minutes:) It was a collaboration between myself, Kevin (drums) and our friend Chavez.
Tell us about your writing process, as an artist?
I’ve always written poetry…even as a kid. As something happened in my life, I would sit down and write about it. Throughout the process of become a ‘professional’ songwriter/performer you tend to pay attention to the ‘process’ a little too much…formatting your song to fit a mold…whether you mean to or not…so the challenge and the goal, is to always be as honest and sincere as possible…show the listener the truth of the matter, and you will inevitably connect.
What was your most embarrassing moment on stage so far?
Being told by an audience member that my fly was undone….and I wasn’t wearing any underwear.
What are you currently working on that you can update your fans on?
This interview:) Follow along at www.marshalldane.com. Writing trips, tours, recording new songs….it’s all there!
Where do you see yourself in 5 years as an artist?
Making another album and continuing what I’m doing:)!
If you are a fan of the now off air television sitcom, Martin, you know that Pam was a cut throat and straight to the point character. Well much like the character she played on television, Tichina Arnold, is not a girl you want to mess with for many reasons. One, she is blunt and straight to the point. Two, she is passionate about this world and how to influence it for the better by spreading positivity and helping fund organizations. And three, she’ll put you on blast if you ever try and mess with her. Unfortunately hip hop artist French Montana didn’t get the memo about Mrs. Arnold and thought it would be hysterical to take a picture of her on the plane and share it with his followers on instagram.
Here’s what happened and what was said by French Montana:
And here was Tichina’s response:
“Man oh man. Mr. Montana, I’ve perused (read through with thoroughness and care) your #instagram profile description, pictures & posts… but despite my determined effort, I STILL don’t have a CLUE to one very simple question… “Who ARE you?”.. I mean other than reading that you’ve dated a Kardashian, and you seem to enjoy taking extraneous pictures with LEGITIMATE celebrities, I’m baffled (perplexed, confused) as to WHO you are & WHAT you actually DO? How do you contribute to society? What do you do to HELP those in need? What philanthropic works have you done? Are you on the board of any charitable organizations? Do you posses your own charitable organization? Do you own your name? How many of your followers are actually REAL followers and not computer generated? Oh.. And one other thing, if you are gonna post or repost things about other people (such as myself). FYI: Maybe you should put more effort into aligning yourself with people who can ASSIST you with building your brand for longevity, only THEN will you be prepared to (as your boy Martin would so clearly put it) “Stomp with the big dogs”. But either way, I’m pleased to know you are a true fan of the Martin show despite what criticisms you have. Your continued support is proof that for over 30 years, I have CONTRIBUTED something of VALUE on television to many people (including yourself) and many generations and hopefully more to come. Hit me up and maybe I can hook you into individuals who have “Serious Inquiries” regarding hiring you. I just need to know what exactly it is that you are SELLING, because unfortunately, I STILL don’t know. Keep your head up & GOD Bless! TICHINA … Oh! One more thing, if you know of anyone who has an auto immune disease such as #Lupus, go check out my 501c3 organization at www.wewinfoundation.org – Unfortunately thousands of women (and men) battle with this constant life threatening #autoimmune #disease everyday. It would be AMAZING if you made a donation instead of losing 40k in one on one basketball bets with your cohorts. Your positive & monetary support would be GREATLY appreciated. Thank you for your time.”

Tonight’s The Night Music Review
by Young Celebrity News
What separates the great artists today from the average is the music they select for their songs. Some of the most amazing singers choose the worst production for their voice and their arrangement of the song doesn’t give justice to the artist. Yet, I’m always impressed when I hear a new song by Junior Turner because he is one of those artists that chooses the best production for his voice. Out of the previous songs we’ve reviewed of his, “Tonight’s The Night,” has to be my favorite. While his previous songs had a more upbeat feel, I love this slowed down love song. The loud horns really give life to the production of the track and Junior’s voice just adds that extra flavor like a meal you keep going back for seconds because it’s that good. This is one of Junior’s best tracks to come out so far.
