the announcement of miss america 2010
performing beyonce's "listen"
for those that don’t know this woman, this is the singer that beyonce knowles portrayed in the movie cadillac records and made her 1961 hit “at last” known to this generation.
it was etta james’ illness that led her to the controversial comments at a concert a year ago where she suggested beyonce should be whipped for singing “at last” for president obama’s inaugural ball, said her son, donto james.
“i can’t stand beyonce,” she told a seattle, washington, audience. “she has no business up there, singing up there on a big old president day, gonna be singing my song that i’ve been singing forever.”
apparently, she was upset about the inaugural because she was supposed to be hired, but she wasn’t well.”
aww, poor etta.
this song has always been one of my favs on memoirs of an imperfect angel. the first time i heard the song on the radio, it hurt my soul that nicki minaj was added to the track (i am so not a fan). but, i was pleasantly surprised by the hook and i love the video! now mariah, let’s see a video for candy bling!
beyonce has never ceased to amaze me, until this morning, when i ran across the video for her song video phone. the first time i heard this song, i wondered what kind of video beyonce would conjure up for it. apparently i’m late, because it has been on youtube since november. what do y’all think about it?
beyonce has come out with her first fragrance, called heat. this commercial may need to be rated r.
NEW YORK (CNNMoney.com) — Honda announced a recall for 646,000 2007 and 2008 Fit, City and Jazz models worldwide, after a fire hazard involving a power window switch resulted in a death in South Africa.
In an e-mailed statement, Honda said extreme amounts of liquid, such as rain or melted snow, can flood the master power window switch on the driver’s side, causing the vehicle to overheat.
The recall affects 141,000 Fit models in the United States, where the malfunctioning switch caused seven vehicles to overheat and two to catch fire. Honda said there were no reports of injuries in the United States.
The Fit is sold as the City and Jazz in international markets.
Honda said it will notify customers by mail with instructions on how to have their vehicles inspected and updated at an authorized Honda dealer.
The automaker said that current 2009 and 2010 models are not affected by the recall.
