Rihanna: Album #5???

From Music of the Sun to Rated R. Rihanna has shown the world her growth, pain, and sorrow. Now for album number 5 she's getting LOUD! Yes people, the Good Girl Gone Bad, is releasing her 5th studio album entitled Loud. Already, Ri Ri has leaked tracks of the album, and you know Black Tie got them! Some of the features on the album include the new single "Only Girl (In The World)", "What's My Name" ft. Drake, and "Who's That Chick" ft. David Guetta. We must say, this album kinda caught us by surprise, insiders say that Rihanna is pushing the album for mid November, but nothing is set in stone. Ri Ri is really making that paper and we LOVE IT! she just finished her world tour The Last Girl On Earth, selling out shows global, so its the perfect time to drop another album. A few days ago, Rihanna leaked the official album cover for Loud. And here at Black Tie we are bringing it to you FIRST! so if you see it anywhere else, know they took it from us.

9 year old Willow Smith has the world Whipping They Hair

In case you've been living under a rock for the past few months, Black Tie is here to catch you up. The youngest of the Smith clan, Willow has found her break into stardom. Coming for two of the biggest celebs in Hollywood; Will & Jada Smith, Willow uses her billion dollar genes to good use. About a month ago she leaked what is now one of the hottest songs out "Whip My Hair". And we must say, how in the wold did this little girl get us so hyped. Well its true, Willow is a serious matter. As a result, Black Tie's favorite Nicki Minaj even joined forces with Willow to do the remix. Like the song says "Weather its long, short.....whip your hair" and that's just what everyone is doing. You go Willow!, we wish you the best on the upcoming album.

Pink Friday-The Album

After months and months of waiting. The love of my life Nicki Minaj has released the official cover for her new album "Pink Friday-The Album". Its looking to hit shelves on November 22, 2010. Nicki has really been on a fast incline in the music industry. Breaking the Billboard Hot 100 record for the only female rapper to be featured on more than 10 number 1 hits, Nicki has truly shown the world that she's here to stay. So you know Pink Friday is gonna come with it! With already hits like Your Love, Massive Attack & Check It Out, Nicki has a few other tracks that she's saving for when the album drops. We here at Black Tie supports Nicki to the fullest, and will defiantly have our copy of the album on release day. Hopefully Nicki will do a personal feature on our site in the future. LET's MAKE IT HAPPEN!

"WILL THEY ONLY LOOK AT US AS A GAY SCHOOL? OR THE FACT THAT WE PRODUCE THE WORLD'S MOST ELITE." The article is entitled "The Mean Girls of Morehouse". In VIBE Magazine's latest issues, critics chose to address the various gay issues at the world's greatest institution for black men. As a student at Morehouse, it affects me every time the media wishes to speak negatively about my school. As studies have shown, the gay, lesbian, bi-sexual community has been around for centuries, so now in this day and age, where we are prone to accept things more; the question must be asked. What is the over-all reason for society's hatred toward this community? In the article, that was strongly opinionated, the author spoke as if they knew EXACTLY the means of being a product of this institution. Now, being a student I will not say that Morehouse is 100% perfect because every place has its fair share of problems and issues. But! from this article, I really wish they'd talked to the gay community at Morehouse College and got an hands on opinion and stand point from them. I give much respect to the former Morehouse brother they did interview, but it seems as if he wanted to subliminally bash the school for not accepting him. When he knew on a first hand basis that, with a institution like Morehouse, dresses, hand bags, and heels WILL NOT be acceptable. So now is not the time to feel discriminated against. As the 10th President of Morehouse College stated some time ago, "Morehouse is not a GAY school, it is a GREAT school". "Here we walk the grounds of great men to become greater men!" simple quotes like this lets you know that place is no joke. As far as VIBE and their article, I give them respect for their craft, but I totally disagree on the way they chose to address the situation. Not every man that attends and graduates from Morehouse is homosexual, nor will he be the next CEO of a fortune 500 company. But know this, EVERY product of Morehouse College is a success story in their own way, weather gay or straight. That's the thing about attending a private institution like Morehouse, Spelman, Clark Atlanta, and other HBCU's. Its such a nurturing environment, that you will only understand it if you attend. And that they mold and make you into leaders. All to make our community and world a better place.

For your own take on the VIBE article, Black Tie is posting the official link for you to read.
