AMP Music Minute: May 8th
J.Lo and Enrique Add Tour Date-
Jennifer Lopez and Enrique Iglesias have been met with open arms since news of their joint tour first broke. Apparently the response was so overwhelming that they felt it was necessary to add more shows to their upcoming tour.
Previously, J.Lo and Enrique were scheduled to do one show at both the Honda (Aug.11th) and Staples Centers (Aug 16th) . As of now, they have added two new dates for your listening and viewing pleasure.
The Honda Center center adds Aug. 12th and the Staples center adds Aug 17th to their concert calendar.
Also in recent news, Casper Smart, J.Lo’s new (younger) boyfriend will share choreographing duties with touring and choreography legend, Jamie King. This is one heck of an opportunity for Smart. We can’t wait to see what they can bring to the table.
See you in August, J.Lo and Enrique!
No Doubt Announces New Album-
The Anaheim-based punk-ska band announced a new album 10 years after releasing their last one. In 2011 the band announced plans for a new album. Now they have a release date !
Though there is still no official title, the new album will be out on September 26th. Some titles have been thrown into the ring like: One More Summer, Gravity, Psycho, Early and many more but nothing has been set in stone.
The group first hit it big back in the 90s with their third album, Tragic Kingdom in 1995, which spawned the hits “Just a Girl” and “Don’t Speak.” Since then they have taken hiatuses for solo projects, break-ups, and even each other.
In that time we learned that Gwen Stefani moonlighted a Harajuku girl and was indeed NOT a “Hollaback Girl”
After a few platinum tracks from their 2001 release Rock Steady the group called it quits until 2009 when they announced they would get back together to tour.
Finally, fans can rejoice in new music from No Doubt.
Jay- Z Admits Blue Ivy Will Be the “Most Spoiled Ever”-
Now that Jay-Z is a father he makes face time on shows for grownups, like Oprah’s Life Class which airs exclusively on her own network, OWN.
Hov spent some time talking about his parenting with the TV mogul and he had to admit that it was likely that he would probably end up spoiling his little girl just as bad as everyone else, if not worse.
“Well, I mean, everyone imagines they’ll be a great dad,” he confessed. “Until they’re teenagers saying, ‘Get away from me, Dad. You’re embarrassing me!’ Right? Everyone imagines that, right?”
He told her that while he has great experiences to draw from, it may not be enough to over come his inevitable wealth and ability to give his little girl anything and everything she could ever want. “I imagine I’ll take things I learned from my mom and things I’ve learned from raising my nephews and apply that,” he said.
Laughing, he joked about what he thinks is likely to happen anyway, “Then at the end of the day, I just know I’ll probably have the worst, spoiled little kid ever.”
Well, he probably isn’t wrong.
With aunties like the rest of Destiny’s child and an uncle like Kanyeezy West, this little girl is going to know diva-tude long before she can spell it!
Yeah, we called it.
