The Essence Music Festival in New Orleans is in full swing. On day two, Friday (July 3), artists such as Slick Rick, India Arie and Charlie Wilson performed great sets. Here's our top seven moments on the second day of Essence Fest.
India Arie isn't too fond of the "Hollywood bubble." After the singer's hand was slapped away by a security guard when she tried to say hello to Lady Gaga on the Grammy Awards red carpet earlier this week, she's sounding off on the matter.
When Beyonce gets on the stage magic happens and her performance at last night’s (Feb. 10) ‘Stevie Wonder: Songs in the Key of Life -- An All-Star Grammy Salute' fell right in line with that affirmation.
The Grammy nominations were unveiled last week and as always, there seems to be a few snubs and surprises within the nods. R&B songbirds K. Michelle and India Arie weren’t nominated for any awards despite releasing impressive albums in 2013.
India.Arie has responded to the accusations that she lightened her skin, which stemmed from for the cover art of her latest single, 'Cocoa Butter.' The image has generated a heated discussion about how dark-skinned women are presented in the media.
