THE UGLY face of hip-hop was on show again last week when US rappers Rick Ross and Young Jeezy fought backstage at the Black Entertainment Television (BET) Awards.It would seem that Ross has a history of making a scene at music awards.On Jay-Z's Kingdom Come she is featured on the second single "Lost One", while on Nas' Hip Hop Is Dead, she is featured three times: on the album's second single "Can't Forget About You", the Kanye West-produced "Still Dreaming", and the final track "Hope".
When I got upset I didn’t want to drink alcohol or do drugs, so I ate pizza and it would be four slices at a time,” Michele continued, pointing out that “while I was introspective I lost all the weight and I fell back in love with my body and myself again.” Loving yourself is not an easy thing to do, especially when you have people judging your every move.
But for the Lost One performer, music was never far from her heart and during her musical pause she penned her fourth and newest album Better.
“I took a year and a half out from recording, to stop listening to everyone else’s ideas and questions to become more self-reflective.
Michele has been featured on several hip hop albums.
She is featured on The Game's album LAX on "Let Us Live".
“It’s so tough with commercial releases because you finish an album and you get it out, but then it goes into the hands of so many handlers who help you put it out, and their intentions are good but a lot of the time they add to it.
