Entertainment is the hardest industry to break into, but a plus about it is that once a person is in, they are never truly out. Back in 2006, Portia Dee got her big break as a reality television star. But, most know her as a singer who is pushing her latest single, which is called “Live Your Fantasy.”

Portia Dee made her debut in 2006 on “Flavor of Love” and was nicknamed Smokey by the titular character, Flavor Flav. As most probably felt or knew deep down, the show was not completely reality and these ladies put on a show. The filters have been off for some time and Portia Dee is now best-known for her music.
Hip Hop Vibe had the opportunity to talk to Portia Dee, as she is promoting her new single, “Live Your Fantasy.” Portia Dee is working with DJ Symphony and her single will be on his next mixtape. She talked to Hip Hop Vibe about the promotion of her new single, DJ Symphony, and “Flavor of Love.”

Paris Hilton Makes Big DJ Debut

1 Jul

She’s back!Paris Hilton the Party Princess, Socialite and Reality tv star is back in the headlines and this time as a DJ!The DJ community has opened up their arms in a warm embrace to welcome the new DJ!NOT!!!The internet has gone crazy lashing out at the hotel heiress for “insulting” their craft by trying to just “look pretty” and “pretend” to really DJ.

Deadmau5 took to twitter,facebook and his blog to slam Paris Hilton for her DJ Debut in Sao Paulo for Brazil’s Pop Music Festival last week-end.


Then he posted a video clip of Paris at her gig on his Facebook page and wrote, “AS I WAS SAYING… its over.”

“thanks afrojack we appreciate it. We really really do. You are the man. Thanks,” he tweeted, making reference to Paris’ on-again-off-again boyfriend DJ Afrojack.

“funnily enough, were on our way to go smash the f**k out of Paris… no, not that one. FRANCE. That one.”

“jeez, it hasnt even been 24hours and im already INB4 ANOTHER PR DISASTER,” he tweeted Sunday night

DeadMau5 later apologized for his harsh words via his blog:

“All im trying to do, is put on my life jacket and swim as far away from this shipwreck as fast as i can. Because in all honesty, i just wanna be in the studio, making electronic music, and expressing myself by means of sitting in a comfy chair with my cat and my equipment… and of course, occasionally strap on a foamy mau5head get on the road and press a few buttons for you guys”

Paris Hilton’s ex,DJ Afrojack claims her set was “pre-recorded” and that he had no idea she had designs on DJing until he got a Google Alert after the show in Brazil.

“I’m not an asshole. I don’t want to put anyone down,” he said. “I think everyone should do what makes them happy, for all the right reasons. And I think it’s really important that if you seriously want to go in front of a crowd and DJ, you actually take the time to practice becoming a DJ. It’s hard work, you know – as a lot of people say, it’s not just pressing play. You have to know how the laptop programs or CDJs work, you have to know what the equaliser is, what the effects are. You can’t just pitch your flanger up and down and wave a flag.”

“I wasn’t supposed to say that, I’m sorry, but it’s true. Also, it’s pre-recorded. I wasn’t supposed to say any of this, my management’s fucking going to kill me. I saw it and was like, ‘Errgh.’ The reason why I’m saying these things is I’m pissed off ‘cause no one told me before, not even her.”

In conclusion, though, Afrojack reckons we should all have a chuckle and move on. “I see a lot of people going crazy, like, ‘This is the end of electronic dance music!’ No, it’s not. It happens, everyone goes, ‘Ha ha’, face-palm, then we continue doing what we’re doing.”

Michael Jackson Music Hacked from Sony;160 Million Dollar Loss

6 Mar

 Michael Jackson’s entire back catalog has been stolen by internet hackers,according to the U.K.’s The Sun.

Digital hackers have reportedly stolen the King of Pop’s entire back catalog, including unreleased tracks featuring Queen’s lead singer, Freddy Mercury, and hip-hop star, Will.I.Am. The crooks illegally downloaded over 50,000 digital files worth a reported $160 million.

In 2010, Sony Music paid $250 million to Jackson’s estate for his unheard material from studio sessions, when the pop icon recorded Off The WallThriller and Bad. The deal allowed Sony to release 10 new Jackson albums in years to come.

The attack on Jackson’s music reportedly happened months ago, but Sony has remained quiet until now.

A source told The Sun, “Everything Sony purchased from the Michael Jackson estate was compromised.”

The breach in the security of Jackson’s files was discovered during a routine monitoring of social networking sites, Jackson fan sites, and hacking forums.

theGrio: Paris Jackson claims vocals on King of Pop’s ‘Michael’ faked

 According to AOL’s music blog, the hackers could “slowly roll the songs out over a period of years, making obsessive fans shell out big bucks for each new CD.”

Not just Jackson’s work was compromised during the security scandal; unreleased music from Jimi Hendrix, Paul Simon, the Foo Fighters and Avril Lavigne was also hit.

This is not the first time Sony has fallen victim to hacking. In April 2011, the company suffered an enormous security breach where the information of more 77 million Sony PlayStation users was exposed.

Because the second breach happened so soon after the first Sony was reluctant to tell the public and sources within the company said they did not have to because there was no customer data involved.

They added that computer experts had traced the hack to the UK by examining a “fingerprint” allegedly left behind.

The Serious Organized Crime division took up the case and two men appeared in court last week charged with offences under the computer Misuse Act.

They denied all charges and were remanded on bail.

Portia Dee Interview with Dynamik Magazine

29 Feb

You’re currently working on your first album- tell us a bit about it and what we can expect? (a self titled upbeat collection of dance/pop tracks)

A lot of fun! It consists of upbeat songs that you would here in top nightclubs around the U.S. The stuff Dj’s love to play and remix in the clubs. I wanted to do a more Top 40 mainstream feel. I wanted to add a kind of fantasy element to some of the tracks as well. Futuristic in a kind of  ”Final Fantasy” way. I think we need new music for the new generation. Music has definitely changed; it’s now very enhanced because of technology. Now kids are very savvy and have the hottest gadgets and know how to use them. They want more online, video games and music. I hope to (make them happy and) give them this.

The first single, which is now available on iTunes, is title “Oh La La” what made you chose this song as your first release? What does it say to your fans?

We chose the “Ooh La La” song because it’s sexy and fun! We got many different responses as to what it reminded them of. Some said it sounded soulful others said trance and even others referred it to the new “Dev” song. I think guys and girls can relate to being in a situation when your at a club and first meeting that one person who turns you on. Lust, attraction, longing feelings of excitement when someone just does it for you. This makes you wanna…

It says you can go out and have fun and flirt and be sexy and turn someone on and that it’s perfectly ok. Especially for a young woman.

You first began your career with a role on VH1’s reality series “Flavor of Love”, what was that like? (character ‘smokey’)

It was a great experience.I was new to L.A.Got lucky right away after seeing a casting call for an untitled t.v. show with an undisclosed celebrity attached.It was “Flavor of Love” with hip-hop artist Flavor Flav.I never guessed that would start my career off but i am thankful i got that opportunity.Which has opened doors.

When did you realize that singing was your true passion?

I started singing right from the beginning so it was always my passion.Involved in choir and singing competitions and musicals.At 9 i got the musical “Annie”and this is when i got serious.For a 9 year old Hahaha!I think after being on a few t.v. shows i realized music is the right fit and my true passion.

 Who are some of your role models in the music industry?
 I have so much respect for so many.Jennifer Lopez,Katy Perry,Madonna,Britney Spears,Bruno Mars.
If you could collaborate with one person- who would it be?
Eminem because he is just so “Raw” and “Real”
Your website says your motto is “I can do it all”- explain what that means to you.
I don’t want to limit my talents into one category.I love to sing,act,write,draw.Passion is limitless.It’s
limitless.Why not do it all…
What are some other things we can expect from Portia Dee in 2012?
I hope to get involved with more charities.Shoot my debut music video.Get involved with producing a tv  show as well as possibly dabble in the fashion biz.This year will be busy!!!!
Sounds exciting!Thank-you Portia

The two ex lovers have been in contact lately.Chris Brown was one of the first ones to tweet “Happy Birthday Robyn”(real name Robyn Rihanna Fenty)who turned 24 on Monday.Reportedly Chris showed up to RiRi’s Private Birthday Party at the Hearst Mansion in Beverly hills too.

Last year, a judge eased a restraining order after an attorney for Rihanna said she didn’t object to removing the stay-away provisions. The order had required Brown to stay 50 yards away from Rihanna, but the restriction was reduced to 10 yards if they were at a music industry event.

After a three-year absence from the Grammys, Brown made his return this year, performing twice at the show and winning best R&B album.After the win Chris Brown,22 tweeted””HATE ALL U WANT BECUZ I GOT A GRAMMY. Now! That’s the ultimate F— OFF,”Grammy Winning Singer Miranda Lambert publicly slammed Chris for his behavior tweeting “Chris Brown twice? I don’t get it. He beat on a girl,”

During a concert last week at the University of Massachusetts, Lambert dedicated her song Gunpowder & Lead, about a woman who exacts revenge on an abusive husband, to Brown.

Before beginning the song, Lambert took out a sign written on neon green poster that read, “Take notes Chris Brown.”

Rihanna and Chris Brown first collaborated in 2007 on Rihanna’s remix “Umbrella”
