[photogallerylink id=119796 align=left][lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Nicki Minaj[/lastfm] has chosen sunny Los Angeles as the backdrop to her sophomore album. She is hard at work on her second album at a studio in the city, and while we don’t yet have a title or release date, her Minajesty does have a good idea the drecton she wants the album to go in.

According to producer [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Kane Beatz[/lastfm], responsible for hits like “Bedrock,” “Bottoms Up,” and Nicki’s own “Superbass,” Nicki is taking this album very seriously. She wants to be involved in every aspect of its creation. More specifically, she wants the music to be just right befor she even begins her writing process, “She just started, so she’s really picking her music and picking the songs. She’s real selective,” Kane told reporters.“She’ll pick all the beats before she even starts writing, so right now, we’re just getting music together, and it’s going crazy right now.” 

Kane also talked about Nicki’s aspirations to stay on top of her game, “She wants hit records every time and she wants to be creative,” he hailed. “With Nicki, it’s more about getting the music right and leaving her the room to be creative and leaving her room to do her.”

Also, for this album Nicki has reportedly claimed that she plans to focus less on collaboration on her sophomore effort, while also professing that her best was yet to come, ”My best work is ahead of me, not behind me. Stay tuned. As soon as I get off this tour [which wraps this month], I’m headed to LA to work on this sophomore album and it’s gonna be epic.”  

Epic is an understatement, if Nicki can make waves as big as “Superbass”, then there’s no telling the greatness she could achieve. Bring it on, I feel it already, that boom-ba-doom-ba-doom-ba that…well you get it.

Nicki’s headed upwards, so here’s “Fly” By Nicki Minaj feat. Rihanna

[lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Beyonce[/lastfm]’s baby fever is crossing over into her fashion line. In a recent interview with Harper’s Bazaar, Bey reveled that she was working on a new maternity line under the House of Dereon label she shares with her mom, Tina.

[photogallerylink id=99643 align=left]Luckily for the pregnant superstar, working on the line has only added to her joy as of late, “I’ve had so much fun with fashion over the months,” she told reporters. Her aim is to find a balance between pregnant and sexy. Beyonce insinuates that her clothes bring the two closer together, “All I see now are clothes that are flattering on a pregnant woman,” she said. “It’s been so exciting for me! I love figuring out designs that still make me feel edgy and sexy while pregnant.”

As for inspiration, Beyonce turns to Victoria Beckham, Kate Moss and Giselle Bündchen,“I love Kate Moss AMP Music Minute: Nicki Minaj Working in LA, Beyonce Makes Moms Fashionable And Maroon 5 to Rock The Runway With Kanye. I think she has great style. And I always admire Victoria Beckham AMP Music Minute: Nicki Minaj Working in LA, Beyonce Makes Moms Fashionable And Maroon 5 to Rock The Runway With Kanye and Gisele [Bündchen]. Their style is modern but always classic,” she says.

I already knew Beyonce was going to be the flyest, most stylish pregnant woman that has ever existed, but now she is making that style accessible to a much larger audience. Pregnant women everywhere are screaming thank you! First she attacks childhood obesity head on, then surprises kids in shopping centers, and now she is making pregnant women feel sexier and more confident. What can’t she do? When can we start calling her Saint Beyonce?

[photogallerylink id=109253 align=left]As we previously reported, [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Kanye West [/lastfm]is scheduled to rock the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show. Literally. He is slated to be the band for the night. Well him and most recently “Moves Like Jagger” band [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Maroon 5[/lastfm] has been added to the line up.

The show is scheduled to air on Novemeber 29th on CBS.

Some of the previous acts that played the Vicky’s Secret show include [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Usher[/lastfm], [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Katy Perry[/lastfm] and [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Akon[/lastfm]. Not to mention the [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Spice Girls[/lastfm] 2007 reunion performance.

This isn’t the first time Kanye was slated to headline this show. He was first invted in 2008 but had to cancel suddenly after his mother’s death.

We hope nothing as sad or tragic keeps Kanye from the runway this year. Maroon 5 has some mighty big shoes to fill. I think they can pull it off though. They got them moves…you know!

This is the one that put them on the map, “This Love” By Maroon 5
