Split!: Christina Milian And The Dream

Vibe Magazine Christina Milian The Dream

I gotta say,  Vibe Magazine cover's hotness has outlasted their relationship.

Within a year, they fell in love, got hitched, and had a baby.......OH AND, he cheated on her!

On Monday, photos emerged showing him and another chica "playing" around.  Just as fast

as the pics appeared, Milian Tweeted:

"whatever you think ... believe it."

Dream's publicist told US Weekly:

"Terius 'The-Dream' Nash is saddened to announce that his marriage to Christina Milian was unsuccessful."

Maybe Nivea was right.........

Quincy Jones Plans To Buy Back “Vibe”: Will Not Attend MJ Funeral

If Quincy Jones has his way, and Q usually has in his lifetime, Vibe magazine will be his again. 

Quincy, who started the magazine in 1992, plans to make it an online publication only. The magazine was in the middle of a Michael Jackson Tribute Issue when they were told they had to shut down.  The magazine has been in serious debt for years and with print media becoming a dying breed, it just could not compete.

In other news, Quincy Jones says he does not plan on attending Michael Jackson's private funeral on Sunday. His reason has to do with lately having to bury so many friends lately, it is leaving him sad and he just can't deal with it anymore.

VERY understandable. Quincy was very close to Michael for a huge majority of his life and I am sure he never thought he would be going to his funeral.-Dr.FB

I'm still trying to figure out why this pic is just so "not right" to me.  He looks kinda scary, but then kinda freaky. Maybe its the new hair color and no smile.......I just can't call it.  Eminem says he almost died and ran 17 miles a day, WTF?... Be sure to check out Vibe for the whole story.

51 Albums, Prince, The Dream Factory~ Thank You Vibe Magazine

I just had to post this.  The Dream Factory album is the BOMB!!!

This is the 4Th installment of 51 Albums that never were.

Thank You, Thank You, Thank You, VIBE Magazine!!!!

Enjoy!!! I know I did !


PRINCE AND THE REVOLUTION
Dream Factory (Paisley Park, 1986)

“Writing a song for Prince is like brushing his teeth,” keyboardist Lisa Coleman says, laughing. “He’s that guy.” But for much of 1986, the prolific artist whose albums often bore the tag, “Written, arranged, produced, and performed by Prince,” was in a collaborative mood. The outcome? The stunning 18-track Dream Factory.

During Prince’s Hit & Run tour, he entered the studio for a series of dates with his longtime backing band The Revolution. Two members of the classic lineup would have the most artistic impact on those sessions: Coleman and guitarist Wendy Melvoin. That was the relationship he, Lisa, and myself had,” Melvoin recalls of the duo’s close musical bond with the infamously independent Purple One. “We were in studios all over the world, writing and finishing tracks that were all incredibly diverse and odd.”

Following Around the World in a Day (Paisley Park, 1985) and Parade (Paisley Park, 1986), Dream Factory was a showcase for Prince at his most avant-garde. What other multiplatinum superstar would open up an album with a  melancholy instrumental piano piece like “Visions”? But it only gets deeper—and weirder. Witness the dark funk title track, which rails against the crippling illusion of celebrity; “Crystal Ball,” a relentless 10-minute epic about war; and “Train,” a soulful rocker that uses train-track sound effects as a backbeat. The centerpiece is “All My Dreams,” a whimsical number straight out of a 1930s jazz musical, featuring Prince singing into a megaphone.

But Dream Factory was never officially released. After abruptly disbanding the Revolution, Minnesota’s native son included Dream Factory solo standouts like “Ballad of Dorothy Parker,” “Strange Relationship,” and “Sign O’ the Times” on his acclaimed 1987 album of the same name, erasing any trace of Wendy and Lisa. “We wanted to be Prince’s muses,” she says, “but he felt like he needed to take back the initial thing that got him to where he was at, which was, ‘I need to do this on my own,’” Melvoin says. Yet Wendy and Lisa have thrived, releasing several albums and scoring films like Soul Food (20th Century Fox, 1997) and television shows like NBC’s Heroes, as well as working with the Edith Funker supergroup with Erykah Badu, ?uestlove, James Poyser, and DJ Jazzy Jeff. But looking back, Wendy says of the time: “We are extremely proud of that period.”
