With ‘The House of Payne’ and ‘Meet the Browns’ doing very well, Perry is now set to bring to primetime a new drama/comedy series titled, ‘For Better of Worse’. the show is an extension to Angela and Marcus’ characters from the movie, Why did I Get Married. The series will star Michael Jai White and Tasha Smith who starred as the titled characters in the movie as well as its sequel.
Lionsgate is about to tap Tyler Perry to run a new cable network. Some say Tyler is walking in the footsteps of friend and fellow media icon, Oprah Winfrey who has already launched her own network (OWN). Lionsgate CEO offered his thoughts on why the deal is destined to be a successful one, “Tyler is one of those rare resources that one could launch a channel with. We have a lot of options if we choose to go down that path…” He would also go on to call Perry, ‘rare piece of talent that can bring an audience anywhere.”

Its been a busy week in the world of entertainment. Kanye demolished Coachella, B is back and the streets are buzzing about her new single, ‘Run The World (Girls)’ while she parlayed in Paris with J. Tyler Perry tells Spike Lee to go to hell, Jermaine Dupri and Da Brat released a SoSo Def Mix of Chris Brown’s ‘Look At Me Now,’ Lil Wayne released his album cover and release date for ‘Tha Carter IV,’ and more! Check out all the deets, pics, and vids below.
Mr. West was definitely in the building, closing out the Coachella Music Festival on Sunday. Ye has been called many things, especially with his tendency to speak before thinking, but after his amazing performance this past weekend in Indio, CA he’s being called one of the greatest hip hop performers of our time. IMO rightfully so. Ye is definitely a triple threat, he writes, raps, and produces. At Coachella he proved that he can also entertain, which in the world of hip hop is a rarity. Ye confessed to the crowd of over 75,000, that this was the most important performance to him since losing his mother in 2007. He opened the elaborate show with a talented group of dancers, as he performed “Dark Fantasy” on a platform above the crowd. The remarkable 90 minute set included hits like “Power”, “Lost In The World”, “Good Life”, “Flashing Lights”, “Jesus Walks”, “Say You Will”and many more. It was during “Say You Will” that Ye opened up to the crowd:
When I made that album I was in a really dark place in my life so I had to title it “Heartbreak.” Losing everything that was important to me. I always said when working on the last album I couldn’t wait to perform “Power” at Coachella. See, this is the most important show to me since my mom passed and to be able to close the festival and see all of you who still love me, after everything I’ve done on TV and said th opposite. For us to still go platinum, for us to still have number ones, to have fans that were here since “Through The Wire,” you didn’t believe sh*t that they said and I really appreciate ya’ll tonight because you know I’m only trying to say and do what is right. I only want better for ya’ll, better us, the best music possible. I’m not the best singer in the world but the notes and the feeling were inside of me, so f~ck it, I went ahead and did it. And to have this moment is so unbelievable, there’s many times I thought about not being here and you all make it worth it.
Social networks were a buzz with talk of Ye’s amazing performance. A few even compared him to the King of Pop. They called him the MJ of Hip Hop! Wow that’s HUGE! Ye closed the set out with, “Hey Mama.” It’s safe to say Mr. West is winning! Check out more pics and vid performances below.
Sidenote: Rumor has it that after Kanye’s performance he was approached by Wiz Khalifa (he performed earlier in the day at Coachella) about a comment he made during “Stronger” he said, “I did so much for that blonde dyke.” It’s no secret that Kanye’s ex Amber Rose is a blonde, and she has a thing for guys and girls. Amber and Wiz are currently dating. Some say Ye and Wiz exchanged a few heated words but Ye’s people pulled him away before blows were thrown. OH WOW! Wiz needs to fall back, I see Amber has him feeling himself to approach Ye like that, Geesh! We don’t promote violence here at HHABC, but just for kicks. Who do you think would win in a fight between Kanye vs. Wiz? Im puttin my money on Ye, Wiz seems like he would be too smoked out to focus. IJS

Is Kanye the MJ of Hip Hop?
Yes, why? No, who is and why?
Beyonce Releases Her Highly Anticipated New Single, “Run The World (Girls)”
B is back and she’s promoting girl power! Her new single, “Run The World (Girls)” had the stans in a frenzy earlier this week when a demo version of the song was leaked. They were ready to cut any and everyone that had anything other than praise for their beloved queen. The final version was released a day later and most breathed a sigh of relief. It’s a better version and I personally like it, but I don’t love it. It’s catchy and I know it will get heavy club and radio rotation, but I expected more from Mrs.Carter. With Lady Gaga and Rihanna in the game, I think B needs to come harder than that. The track is recycled, it’s already been used by Diddy Dirty Money, and some unknown named Casely. Don’t get me wrong B definitley stamped it and made it her own, but I just feel a fresh new track would have taken the girl power anthem to another level. The single has a few memorable lines like:
“ I think I need a barber, none of these b*tches can fade me.”
“My persuasion can build a nation.”
“Who run the world, girls. Who run this mutha?”
All week Mr. and Mrs. Carter were in Paris with her nephew Julez (her sister Solange’s son) and his dad Daniel (Solange’s ex husband). They enjoyed good food, Disneyland, and B had a photoshoot for an upcoming issue of Harper’s Bazaar. Looking forward to seeing the video for “Run The World (Girls)” Francis Lawrence directed the highly anticipated vid, he also directed Lady Gaga’s “Bad Romance”. The album cover for the new single was released this week.

Is this new single a summer Hit/Miss?
Tyler Perry To Spike Lee, “Go Straight To Hell!”
Tyler Perry has tapped into his inner Madea and he’s fed up with the constant criticism. His response to a reporter at a press conference for “Madea’s Big Happy Family” when asked about Spike trying to bring him down,
“I’m so sick of hearing about damn Spike Lee. Spike can go straight to hell! I am sick of him saying, ‘This is a coon, this is a buffoon.’ I am sick of him talking about black people going to see movies. This is what he said: ‘You vote by what you see’ — as if black people don’t know what they want to see. I am sick of him. He talked about Whoopi, he talked about Oprah, he talked about me, he talked about Clint Eastwood. Spike needs to shut the hell up!”
Tourex is an MSNBC correspondent, he also went in on Tyler this week on Twitter, calling Tyler’s film (For Colored Girls) For Colored Victims, and saying that Tylers films are horrible:
“Why am I going on about Tyler T-Pain Perry? Because I hate mediocrity and more I hate mediocrity being praised. Tyler is mediocrity.”
Dang Tourex tell us why you mad son! I agree that Tyler’s films are repetitive, and there are some things about them that I don’t agree with but it’s just comedy! Mr. Perry must be doing something right, his films always open in the top three, and Im sure his bank account doesn’t look like someone releasing bad films!
Talk to me!
Do you agree with the criticism Tyler has received, or should they lighten up and leave Madea alone?
Will you go see “Madea’s Big Happy Family” this weekend?
Lil Wayne’s “Tha Carter IV” Album CoverxRelease Date
Weezy’s highly anicipated album has a new release date, June 21. The album will include the single, “6 Foot 7 Foot.” According to Young Money President Mack Maine, “He’s still perfecting a few things, he’s a perfectionist.” I guess Weezy wants to get it tight and right for ya’ll.

Da Brat tat-tat-tat is free and she’s busting all over ya’ll on the Chis Brown “Look At Me Now” SoSo Def remix. She had the internet hip hop heads flippin over her verse.

Watch the vid below and tell me what you think. Welcome back Brat!
Talk to Me!
Did Da Brat Bust/Flush?
Numbers sure don’t lie as your boy Hovi said some 3 or so years ago. The top slot comes as no surprise for the nth time, Oprah beats her runner up Movie Mogul Tyler Perry by almost tripling his earnings for the year.
As for Tiger woods it appears that no amount of sex scandal will stop him from breaking the 100 million dollar mark, I wonder how this makes his haters feel.
Beyonce lands right below the top three, beating her better half, Jay Z who came in 6th position with a staggering 63 million right below Floyd Mayweather who earned 67 million.
Sports Icon Micheal Jordan came in 7th right after Jigga man followed by Kobe and then Lebron.
Others like Diddy, Lil Wayne both took the 9th and 10th position respectively.
This serves as yet another testament to the power of Hip-Hop when 3 out of 10 of the Forbes list consist of rappers, big up to the money makers out there keep doing your thing.
Oprah Winfrey – $315
Tyler Perry – $125
Tiger Woods – $105
Beyonce – $87
Floyd Mayweather – $65
Jay-Z – $63
Michael Jordan – $55
Kobe Bryant – $48
Lebron James – $43
Lil Wayne – $20
