Afternoon Buzz (f. Brandy, Clinic, Madonna, Nicki Minaj, & More) Tris C August 22, 2012 Music Brandy to Release “Two Eleven” October 16 Grammy Award-winning R&B/pop singer /songwriter/actress Brandy is due to drop Two Eleven on October 16 via Chameleon/RCA Records. It is assumed the crowds are psyched about her come back and expect this to be one of her multi-platinum selling albums to date. PETA Enraged With Lady Gaga PETA, the animal rights organization is upset with the star for reneging on her promise to not wear fur, publicly declared on the Ellen DeGeneres show. In a fit, Dan Matthews puts pen to paper under the belief that Gaga wore a pink mink coat, a Giorgio Armani, in New York: “Many of your gay fans, I among them, have long admired what you told Ellen: ‘I hate fur, and I don’t wear fur.’ I included a link because these recent photos of you in fox and rabbit and with a wolf carcass make it appear that you have amnesia. What happened? Are your stylists telling you that it’s fake, or are you a turncoat? Many gays are animal advocates because we recognize that the same arrogance and indifference that some have toward animal suffering has at times been directed toward us personally because of our orientation. By wearing those dumb furs in a heat wave, you’re making yourself a target just like the mindless Kim Kardashian. As we plan our fall campaigns, please tell us whether what you gracefully told Ellen was heartfelt or just a pose.” Replying via her LittleMonsters.com site, she displaces the anger and draws attention to the designer; “For those press and such who are writing about whether or not my fur is actually real, please don’t forget to credit the designer HERMES. Thank You! LOVE, gaga” Celine Dion Will Drop Two Albums In November French-Canadian singer Celine Dion is scheduled to drop two albums in the month of November; Water and Flame lands on Nov. 5 while Sans Attendre will drop Nov. 5. Although this is not her first run of the mill for releasing two discs, similar to her english and french covered release in 2007, I am sure fans of the long-lived star are expecting the artist they fell in love with, despite an English album 5 year stalemate. Madonna Sued By Anti-Gay Activists Recently performing live shows in Russia, Madonna has shown unfaltering support to the controversial band Pussy Riot, making a speech of the entire ordeal and wearing ‘No Fear’ on the back of her attire. The two-word statement sent Russian authorities in a frenzy, the artist seemingly rebelling against a city law, imposed in March, which fines for spreading ‘homosexual propaganda.’ Although jail time for homosexuality was decriminalized in 1993, of course, like the US, prejudice still is in full effect. 10 Russian anti-gay campaigners resulted in filing a $10,000,000 law suit against the star for defying the ‘homosexual propaganda’ law. Darya Dedova, one of the 10 activists who filed the lawsuit in a St Petersburg court, told the Guardian: “She had been warned with words that she should behave in line with the law and she ignored it. So we will speak in the language of money. Of course, it is difficult to measure moral damages and suffering but maybe people who earn money regardless of moral rules will better understand this.” Apparently, the money is to be donated to orphanages. Justin Beiber Is To Appear On Upcoming Episode of “The Simpsons” Anyone want to guess how many times the word “swaggy” will be stated?

Although his tweet since has been removed, the excited artist let everyone in on his secret by tweeting, “just did a voice over for the SIMPSONS!!! #swaggy.” Shortly after, All Jean confirmed officially to EW that Beiber will in fact be making a cameo. While his Tweet was deleted The Simpsons‘ executive producer Al Jean confirmed to EW that Bieber will in fact make a cameo. “He tries to get into a talent show that Bart is playing piano in and they won’t admit him,” Jean said. “Draw your own conclusions.” With no date yet to air, the lines of Beiber fans continue to stack in anticipation.

Earlier this year to write songs for her upcoming fifth album, Lavigne, 27, got together with Kroeger, 37, initially “Bro’ing out with Chad Kroeger in the studio,” and evolving into a romance that ultimately persuaded Kroeger to pop the question August 8th. Being that this is Kroeger’s first and Lavigne’s second, due to the divorce from Sum 41’s singer Dervck Whibley in October 2009, maybe there is long-lasting personal and business chemistry between the too seeing as Lavigne’s most recent album as well as Nickelback’s was released in the same year.
