Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi and her fiance Jionni LaValle officially have welcomed their second child! Snooki gave birth to a baby girl this morning, and, in true Snooks fashion, made time to tweet the news to her fans!
The couple's first child, son Lorenzo, was born in August 2012, five months after Jionni proposed to Snooki.

 Aww congrats to them! I think that they chose a beautiful name, and I'm sure that baby Giovanna will be a pint-size cutie just like her mom!

MUSIC VIDEO: "Looks Like Me"-Anthony Lewis (Michael Brown Tribute)

In the wake of the murder of Ferguson, MO teen Michael Brown, many artists have been using their
music to express their feelings about the situation. It's definitely been powerful to listen to these different tributes!

Upcoming R&B singer Anthony Lewis has dropped a song as well, entitled "Looks Like Me." Produced by Warryn Campbell and La'Shawn Daniels, the lyrics openly showcase Anthony's thoughts on the unjust murders of black teens like Mike Brown and Trayvon Martin among others. Anthony himself is a 17-year-old black teen, who has personally experienced racial profiling and losing a friend due to police brutality in his hometown of Los Angeles. The video for the song, released September 8, 2014, features pictures of people protesting and grieving these tragedies, and praying for justice and peace.

ALBUM REVIEW: X-Chris Brown

I'm a big fan and believer still in Chris Brown. In spite of his mistakes, I've always admired his incredible talent, so I've been waiting for his new album  "X" for quite some time. Released today, September 16, this is Chris' sixth studio album, and he definitely gives Team Breezy a lot of great tracks.

In a past interview with Ebony, Chris explained the significance of the title:
It's the Roman numeral for 10. 5/5/89 is my birthday: 5 plus 5 is 10, and this is my tenth year since I got into music. 'X' is the 24th letter in the alphabet, and I will turn 24 when this album comes out. 'X' is also a metaphor, as in 'ex-girlfriend': it implies you're progressing and moving on in life, not holding on to the past and your old ways.
For the album, Chris has said that he was going for a more mature and soulful sound. He clearly incorporates his inspiration from his idol Michael Jackson, as well as Quincy Jones and Stevie Wonder. He mostly made that happen, though some tracks were off the mark.

In The Spotlight: Tim Wheatley & Crooked Saint

Today on The Spotlight, we have Australian artist Tim Wheatley! Born in Melbourne, Australia, he grew up in a family that was involved in music in one way or another. “My old man was a musician, and there was never a shortage of instruments lying around the house to kill some time on,” Tim said. Growing up in Australia, he always thought that the music had “quite a unique sound.” “Why that is I’m not exactly certain,” Tim said. “But I think it has a lot to do with the tyranny of distance. We take the music from places like the US and other parts of the world and put our own spin on it.”

The singer went on to form his own band in high school called The Sparrows, which signed with Sony a few years out of school. The band had gigs around Australia, the UK, and the States and was doing quite well. However, Tim and the lead singer Michael Badger, began moving in different musical and creative directions, and Tim left the group.
