Okay, so here is the 3rd FUNKY-MEDIA interview, and I really enjoyed this one. I interviewed the amazing SILENA MURRELL. Here is the interview:

Q1: I recently saw the video of you performing on your MySpace. You did amazing!!! How do you keep your beautiful voice in shape?
I do funny sounding vocal exercises, warm-ups etc. The show I did in Virginia was hectic I didn't have time to warm up or anything. We were stuck in the airport taveling 17 hrs and I had to run right on stage and perform straight from the airport. LOL The show must go on. :)

Q2: Your song, "Dying 2 Tell U", is amazing!! Can you tell me other song titles?
Other song titles are "Stand Up" encouraging women or men to stand alone for a while until the right one comes along. "Just Asking" - asking the true intentions of a potential soul mate :)
Q3: "I Like My Man Hard", produced by Scott Storch, was supposed to be your first single. Why did you change it to "Bring It Home"? Was it because of Chris Brown's copycat single?
No It was because the label took too long to move on it. But It was the official soundtack to the Book "Sex.Lies.Muder.Fame" written by Lolita Files. It was the first time a book had a sound track. :) The label wanted people to know that I'm a real singer. I thought Bring It Home was a good single -people always enjoy it when I perform it live.
Q4: What is the title of your album? When will it be released?

The title of my album and release I can not disclose. There have been major changes even with my label, which are better for me. It will take a little while longer for my album to release but It is definitely a better situation and strategy for success..
Q5: What are your favorite songs and/or albums at the moment? (Please don't say Justin Timberlake)

I like Beyonce's "Irreplaceable" :) I don't have a favorite song or album right now. I've been listening to old stuff.
Q6: What should fans, like myself, expect of your album? Will it be uptempo or all ballads?

My album is going to be a combination of uptempo, mids and ballads but it's definitely going to feel good. :)
Q7: Are you single, or are you in a relationship?

I've been single for a while now and I like it. ;) Freedom has its rewards.
Q8: You are one of the few artists that REALLY contacts their fans. How do you find the time to do that with your hectic schedule?

I have someone assist me in alot of things so it makes it a little easier. It may take me some time to respond ,but I will. :)
Q9: What producers did you work with, and who do you want to work with?

I would like to work with Polo, Timbeland, and B.Cox. I have worked with Adonis Shropshire, Scott Storch, Eric Dawkins, Tricky Stewart, Ralph Stacey, Steve Huff etc..
Q10: There are rumors floating around that Diane Martel, who directed videos for Mariah Carey and Kelly Clarkson, is going to direct the video for "Bring It Home". Is that true?

Not that I know of.
Q11: Your songwriting is fantastic!! I still get chills listening to the lyrics of The Braxton's "Never Say Goodbye". Where do you get your inspiration?

Thank you. My inspiration is life. I wrote that from the heart. I try to write from the heart or other's hearts. :)
Q12: Is it true that you worked with Makeba Riddick and Swizz Beatz?

I co-wrote three songs with Mekeba Riddick but I have not worked with Swiz z Beatz -not yet anyway. That might be a good idea ha ha ha :)
Comment: Thank you so much for letting me do an interview. I wish you all the best in whatever you want to do. You are an amazing person, and it shows that you put so much effort in your singing and songwriting.
Thank you for your kind words. This is a crazy business I'm in and genuine people as yourself are a real treat. :) God bless!

New Albums
Bow Wow/Prince Of Fame
Okay, so I am no fan of Bow Wow, but I'll admit it... this CD is blazin'!!! You got everything from good collabos (Chris Brown, Da Brat, R. Kelly, Johnta Austin) to good producers (JD, B. Cox, Mannie Fresh). The song, "On Fiyah", is addictive!! Urgh, I hate him...

R&B Gossip/News
According to KeviPod, it's official... B'Day is being rereleased!!! With 3 new tracks and the new single, "Beautiful Liar", which is a duet with Shakira!!! Guess the rumors that she's releasing "Green Light" as a single are not true. Only time will tell...

Sorry for not updating... I have had MAJOR homework the last couple of days before the holiday. Anyways, I'll be updating every day from now on!!! :)

God, I am sooooo in LOVE with Katharine McPhee now!!! She is simply amazing!!! Anyways, here are two FANTASTIC new songs from her upcoming album, NEVER SAW IT COMIN'.

I Lost You (Prod. by Underdogs)
"I Lost You" is a perfect nice laidback joint. I totally love it!!!! The lyrics are deep as well. It's also reminiscent of Beyonce's "Listen". No wonder, considering who produced it. Still an amazing song, nonetheless.
Dangerous (Prod. by Danja)
It's rare that you get a song like this these days... powerful lyrics, powerful voice, amazing beat. This is my jam right now!!!!

By now, I'm sure ALL of u downloaded and heard the two new Ashley Tisdale songs, so I won't post them. Anyways, here is my reviews:
He Said, She Said
This song is a club banga!!!!! It's soooo hot!!!!! Can't wait to see the video!
Techno/Rock/R&B/Pop... All in one!!!! I liked the live version better, but this is nice. I like it.
R&B News/Gossip
Willa Ford is working on her sophomore album as we speak!!! The songstress/dancer/writer/producer/choreagropher/actress (LOL!) is coming back with a new album 'filled with hypnotic pop sounds.', according to her. Willa was asked to return to DANCING WITH CELEBS, but she denied so she could focus on her new album. Willa also has a shelved album under her belt, SEXYSEXOBSSESIVE, which included the Top 50 hit, "A Toast To Men". It was never released because of legal reasons. (???) -- Kelly Rowland's upcoming album, titled MISS KELLY, will be preceeded by the single, "I'm Cool", according to Wiki. The set includes production by Rich Harrison, Sean Garrett and Soulshock & Karlin, among others. It's due Feb. 21. -- Trina's upcoming album, Da Baddest Bitch II, has been pushed back to Spring '07.

Nas Feat. Kelis/Not Going Back (Prod. by StarGate)
I am digging this!! It's smooth and sexy. Enjoy!

Ok, I haven't updated in awhile, but I've been VERY busy. Anyways, I've got a MASSIVE update for you guys today.
R&B Gossip/News

According to this article, Beyonce Knowles and Jay-Z are going to get married. Honestly, I doubt it, because I've read over fifty articles saying they'll get married over the past two years and it's never happened. Why should it now? If they do, than CONGRATS to the both of them, if not, okay. They'll get married when they're ready.
Katharine McPhee's debut album, due January 30th, is tentatively titled Never Saw It Comin', according to Billboard. I don't like the title AT ALL. I love the clips I heard, though. "Over It" is breathtaking!! I simply CAN'T WAIT for Kat's album. She's my favorite AI contestant. Never Saw It Comin' includes production by Timbaland protege, Nate Hills, Ryan Leslie, Kara DioGaurdi and UNeSS. The first single is rumored to be "Open Toes".
Ciara is set to debut at NUMBER UNO with her sophomore, Ciara: The Evolution!! She is expected to sell around 325 k. Congrats CiCi! Also, the annoying Eminem is presumed to debut at #2 selling 280 k. Didn't he retire?? I swear, these rap people presumabely retire, but release a new album... *rolls eyes* Gwen Stefani's The Sweet Escape is #3, expecting to sell 250 k, which is good. I expected her to do much better, though. The Dreamgirls OST is expected to sell around 125 k, but it might get higher on the films worldwide release on Dec. 25, Christmas day.

Beyonce recently DENIED rumors that she's jealous of Jennifer Hudson's starring role in Dreamgirls. "I knew the character that I played wasn't the star," she says. "She wasn't the underdog. She didn't have the struggle and the pain and the the dramatic scenes that Effie had, and I was fine with that." "It's really unfortunate that everyone is saying I'm jealous of Jennifer. It hurts my heart because it's so cliched... They're saying that I'm mad when I knew going into this I was playing Deena." Spoken like a true diva!
New Singles
Jennifer Lopez/Que Hiciste
This is the album version of "Que Hiciste". The other one was a remix. I love this version MUCH MUCH more, though. Jen killed it!!! Can't wait for Como Ama Una Mujer!
Ciara/Love U Better (Prod. by Collipark)
I love this song! It's edgy and sexy, and it fits right in with the album. It should've been on there 'cause it's unlike anything we heard of CiCi.
New Albums
Fantasia/Fantasia (AOL WebRip)
I still didn't listen to this album. i'm waiting for December 12.
