Nicki Minaj is putting a much more polished foot forward while making her "American Idol" promo rounds these days.  Check out the sexy lacy look she rocked at FOX’s All Star party last night, plus details about Fantasia‘s new album, and Beyonce returning to the Presidential Inauguration….

The newest "American Idol" judge tossed her cotton candy rainbow wigs and outfits to get a bit more grown up for her new role.  Nicki Minaj hit up the Fox TCA Winter All Star party at The Langham Huntington Hotel and Spa in Pasadena last night.  And we must say, we’re digging the simple black wig with chic bangs and curls.  And this sexy semi-backless lace dress for the occasion:

While the ASSets are still on 110 while she walks away in her Louboutin sandals, the 30-year-old looks pretty nice.  We like demure Nicki.

In other music news, Fantasia not only posted a few new pics from her "Lose To Win" video shoot to her Instagram, but she revealed some details about her upcoming 4th studio album.

The title will be The Side Effects of You, and it will showcase her rock-soul style she’s been speaking about lately.  Fanny told the Tom Joyner Morning Show about writing for her new album:

"It’s my baby because I finally got to write. They allowed me to write on this album and a lot of the songs we did, we did from scratch. We actually lived in the studio and I’ve always wanted to do something different. They always say R&B and I love R&B, but for me, at the level I’m at right now, I kept saying I want to do something like Rock-Soul. When you say Rock-Soul you think of Tina Turner. You think of James Brown. I just wanted so bad to always do something like that and I thank the record company, RCA, for allowing me to do that on this album."

Her lead single, "Lose To Win," was not originally slated for her album, but she says she put it on there anyway because it just fit for her.

"When I listened to the lyrics of the song, to me it wasn’t just about a relationship, it was about my whole career. It’s been ten years for me. There’s been ups. There’s been downs. There’s been people to walk away. There’s just been a lot for me. So the message was strong for me and I just had to record it."

The albmu is due out this March.

And finally, Beyonce will be back in D.C. for the Presidential Inauguration festivities this year.  The Baddie chick has been tapped for one of the biggest honors–she will belt out the National Anthem for President Barack Obama’s Inauguration ceremony on January 21.  And she will be front and center at the West Front of the U.S. Capitol.

It’s no secret that the Knowles-Carters are friends of the Obamas.  And after the R&B diva sang "AT Last" for the Presidential couple at their first Inauguration, they decided to ask her back for the official ceremony.

Kelly Clarkson will be singing "My Country Tis Of Thee" (which Aretha Franklin rocked last Inauguration), while James Taylor will sing "America The Beautiful."  Nice!

 

The Randomness:

1.  Katt Williams was arrested again last night in L.A. after being issued a bench warrant for not showing up to court.  Katt was released and said it was only because he had another court date at same time, and could only attend one. STORY

Get excited, Rihanna fans! The pop diva has announced the title and release date for her upcoming 2011 album. It’s hard to believe Rihanna was able to record an album this year — being that she had so much stuff going on including filming and promoting a movie, launching a fragrance, and touring nonstop — but it’s definitely on it’s way, and fans will only have to wait a few weeks to hear it!

Rihanna’s follow-up to her critically and publicly-acclaimed album ‘Loud’ will be called ‘Talk That Talk’ and will drop on Nov. 21. On the ‘Rihanna Unlocked’ section of her Facebook page, RiRi wrote, “Mission #5: UNLOCKED! Rihanna’s new album, TALK THAT TALK, out November 21st! #TalkThatTalk.”

‘Talk That Talk’ will undoubtedly feature her new hit single ‘We Found Love,’ which features production from DJ Calvis Harris. From the sound of the name, we can expect some more sassy songs, since we know Rihanna can not only “talk the talk” but also “walk the walk.” Hopefully, there will be some killer collaborations featured on ‘Talk That Talk’ as well!

Stay tuned with PopCrush for more updates on Rihanna’s upcoming ‘Talk That Talk’ LP, and keep your ears perked for any new tracks that may be released before the album hits retailers on Nov. 21.

R. Kelly Announces Album Title and New Single

R. Kelly is working on a new studio album and it will be a big departure from his last romantic effort ‘Love Letter.’ During an interview with a Chicago radio station 107.5 WGCI, the R&B mack announced that his new LP will be titled ‘Black Panties.’

Yes, that’s right, Kellz is producing an album dedicated to women’s underwear. No, we’re just kidding. Apparently, the crooner is recreating a “new ’12 Play’ that will be more freakier than his classic 1993 album of the same name.

“I’m on Mission ‘Benjamin Button’ right now, I’ma turn back time,” he says. “I just did the whole ‘Love Letter’ joint and everybody thinking, ‘Well, that’s the direction he going now.’ No, that was a moment in time.” The Pied Piper also announced that the first single from the set will be titled ’10 Minutes.’ No word on when the song will hit radio.

While we’re excited that R. Kelly is recording a new album, we are not sure about the title ‘Black Panties.’ Unless Kellz is promoting some new undies for Fruit of the Loom, we hope that he reconsiders calling his LP an undergarment.

Meanwhile, the Grammy-winning singer is feeling much better after have throat surgery a couple of months ago. “I’m at like 99 percent so you know, that one percent will be here in a day,” he says. “I had like a cyst as big as a golf ball on my tonsils, and the doctors, they cut it out though, they took care of me really good.”

Jay-Z Explains “Watch the Throne” Album Title

Still on their mega promotional, and somewhat genius, marketing campaign for their collaboration album “Watch the Throne,” Jay-Z and Kanye West continue to make headlines. While Yeezy is overseas at the Way Out West festival with singer Prince in Sweden, Jay thought he’d explain the meaning behind the title of the much anticipated joint.

In an interview with Lorenzo “Ice Tea” Thomas, radio host on Miami’s 99 Jamz Radio, the “Otis” rapper enlightened the listeners by explaining:

“It’s just protecting the music and the culture. It’s people that’s in the forefront of music, it’s like Watch the Throne, protect it. You just watch how popular music shifts and how hip-hop has basically replaced rock and roll as the youth music. The same thing could happen to hip-hop, it could be replaced by other forms of music. So it’s just making sure that we put that effort into making the best product so we can contend with all this other music, with all the dance music that’s dominating the charts right now and indie music that’s dominating the festivals and still hold off rock ‘n’ roll. Just to hold our place and make sure that the hip-hop culture is still the most dominant form of music around the world.”

In other Jay news, it was announced that the Roc Nation CEO will join the likes of Black Eyed Peas, Bruno Mars and David Guetta at the iHeartRadio Festival in Las Vegas on September 23rd and 24th.

“Watch the Throne,” in stores now, is projected to sell over 500k units in its opening week. Official numbers will be released later today.
