The Last Word: Solange Knowles Joins the Pussycat Dolls? Whitney Houston and Craig David Return?

Greetings world, Chris Richburg is feeling under the weather so I’m filling in for him to bring you the Last Word. This week was interesting to say the least. From NY governor Eliot Spitzer hangin’ with the hookers to Justin Timberlake calling one of his exes a Madonna wannabe (hmmm, I wonder which one), people had something to say. I don’t have any shout outs really, so shout out to all of you who are surviving flu season. Vitamin C is your friend. So here is the Last Word!Craig David Tries LatinSo remember Craig David (check the video below to refresh your memory), the UK R&B artist who brought us some solid R&B gems like “Fill Me In,” “7 Days,” and “Walking Away”? Well he’s returning…on the Latin tip! The now grown man told the Daily Star, “I wanted to do the whole Buena Vista Social Club thing but had to rein myself in this time.” Interesting. He even recorded part of his album Trust Me in Cuba. Let’s see how this Latin Jazzy Soul thing works out for him. He’s not even Latin – haters, I see you coming! Kelly Rowland Bought Tig Ol’ BittiesI know Illseed mentioned this in rumors, but I had to big up Kelly’s honesty. While many divas shun the idea of admitting cosmetic surgery (sup Amerie?), Kelly Rowland is embracing her new breasts. “I was sick of not fitting into my tops. There was this one really hot House of Dereon top – I just wanted to fill that out,” Kelly told The Sun. “I put it on and I looked so good! I’m so happy. I feel complete.” The now complete Destiny’s Child vet went from an A cup to a B cup. I don’t know, as a woman I feel like that painful surgery is not worth just one cup, but I guess the cups are half full now and not half empty…hardy har har. The Pussycats Lose Another Doll – Gain Solange?Carmit Bacher, the lead singer who wasn’t Nicole Scherzinger, has left the Pussycat Dolls to pursue other interests. Carmit was with the Pussycat Dolls since ’95 when the group was still a burlesque outfit. Rumor has it that Beyonce’s lil’ sister Solange will be the new Pussycat Doll. This seems a little strange since Solange is all about her new Hadley Street Dreams project. Then again, MTV’s reality show The Hills star Audrina Partridge is set to hit the stage with the Dolls in Vegas on March 28. Regardless of who the new Pussycat Doll is, best of luck to Carmit Bacher. Hopefully her success won’t cause major label layoffs like her former PCD bandmate. Ouch!Janet Jackson Cancels SNL Appearance Due to FluFor a while it seemed as though Janet Jackson’s momentum was unstoppable during the promo for her new album Discipline. Then the flu hit. The pop superstar went to Cedars-Sinai Hospital in LA earlier this week with flu symptoms. Janet is resting up and drinking fluids to get healthy and continue her album promo. Unfortunately, Miss Jackson had to cancel this week’s Saturday Night Live appearance. We hope she goes on soon though, she has a great sense of humor! Feel better, Janet!Kevin Federline’s Lawyers Try To Break The BankIn the midst of Britney Spears’ troubles splashed across every gossip magazine and website, her ex husband is trying to squeeze legal fees too. According to CNN, the former dancer and most recently rapping Kevin Federline attempted to have Britney Spears pay $500,000 for “complicated” legal fees on behalf of his attorneys. Spears’ attorneys say no way and that the lawyers should only be making about $175,000. I say who cares, but $500k is way too much. At this point K-Fed would be better off trying to milk some change from his other baby mama Shar Jackson, since her single “Let It Blow” is all over iTunes and the ringtones circuit. Maybe he should release another rap album? Maybe not.Whitney Houston Returns!So the rumors were true. Billboard.com revealed that the living legend turned hot mess will have an album out for the holidays. “We’re on track for a holiday release,” Clive Davis said. “We’re not going to compromise who she is to fit into today’s Hip-Hop radio market. The public wants Whitney material.” Hmmm, let’s hope Whitney’s still relevant. If not, refer to our Become an Addict in ’08 piece for some clarification.
