If you live in Hollywood, you know that Rihanna and Ciara have the same publicist, Mark Young. He’s a nice Jewish chap, originally out of New York.

Hip Hop News, reveals Mark throwing in some Joan Rivers with a hint of diva humor fit for social network banter, in these two r n’ b pop divas, latest round of press.

Says the website – “this video, created a feud on twitter.”

Ciara is a sweetheart. There’s not a feuding bone in her body.

Poor Ciara! She’s so talented yet she must not be feeling the love from her record label. Here’s a letter to Fans on Ciara’s :

My Time to Speak

“To my fans:

This week the net has been a buzz of the rumor that I have been dropped from my label. At this point that rumor is false.. It is true that I have asked and I pray that my label will release me. I have had some great times and success with my label, but sometimes like all great things, it’s at that point where I feel we don’t share the same views on who I am as an artist. The past two albums have been very frustrating for me. At times there were songs I chose to lead a project and I was ignored! This project, I even tried to get “Gimmie Dat” started I spent tens of thousands of my own money only to hear the radio PDs tell me my label didn’t want the song played. I even spent more than one hundred thousand dollars out of my pocket on the video to bring my vision to it and still no label support. I do understand that some labels are not financially supporting their artists and I have become one of them. You, my fans, know that I strive to do my best to deliver to my you the best songs and creative vision I possibly can. I’m dedicated to my music, performance and to my fans! I’ve tried to be a team player with the label only to have compromised what I truly believed and was not given the right opportunity to promote and inform my fans of the release of this album. I have so much of me as an artist I still want to give to the world and my fans. A release would allow me to go be creative with people who care and understand me as an artist. In a short time, I will be able to bring to you a new music energy and a visual excitement! Thank you so much for standing by me through the good, bad, and the confusion. I love you all.

Love Ciara”

Let’s hope she stops feeling like Prince, from back in the day and can work feel represented properly. Also – what are the lucrative -earning divas of US pop culture, like Rihanna, Beyonce, Solange and Diana Ross doing to help our sista Ciara?

Hello – these girls all share the same publicity team, based right here in West Hollywood!

1 Fact: 1 billion people do not have clean drinking water. Where: Africa and India are most affected.

The threat: More people are lost in the world through this situation than war.

The solution: We can make a difference through UNICEF Tap Project. If you want to, please do.

True fact 2: For as little as $10, one person can have clean drinking water for a lifetime.

That’s like a beer at a Hollywood club with the tip. Amazing aye! Act. Bump this post on too. Let’s flow. :)

CIARA is planning to go back to school. The 25-year-old singer, started music at 16, is focused on her career but still longs to learn other subjects too she feels are essential to get on in life.

“I did get some years where I was still able to go to school and see my friends, so I don’t feel like I missed out on my youth. I didn’t go to college or anything,” she said. “I would like to go back to school one day and learn more because knowledge is power, so the more the better.

“I’m happy that I stopped my education when I did, in terms of seeing my career take off in the way that it did, but I wouldn’t rule out going back to school one day. If something caught my interest and inspired me to go back, then I may think about going back into education, but for now I’m focused on my career.”

“After music I would love to raise a family, have kids, because that’s one of the most important things you can do, it would really be a blessing. You have to make sacrifices. I don’t know if I would quit music completely when I had children, but it would be a big responsibility so I would have to see how things go and consider making a decision then.”

School, motherhood, music–all sound choices from a women who is so talented in so many ways already. Go kid. Nice conceptual planning.

R n’ B artist Ciara is always such a talented dancer and performer of America, as well as creating and singing music that the kids in clubs of America love. She’s like Janet Jackson‘s missing younger sister… and her flexibility is like… give this girl a spotlight. She always commands attention.

Here’s her latest single, Basic Instinct [U Got Me] and as my nephew Jay-V is still dancing on top of the charts for artist J Williams down in beautiful and green New Zealand, in the music video of Williams’ song titled the same name You Got Me … I’m going to run both clips today, for your entertainment from the stunning City of Angels.

Because connecting you with the hottest peformers and artists sourced at both ends of the earth is what we do (and my family does also) on this blog. You know it!

And as always… You’re Welcome!

Enjoy the Kiwi in LA rythm n’ blues magic. This is a once in a lifetime R n’ B post today, hooking you up like a telephone to the furtheresmost angles of the world’s entertainments and best entertainers. Love it.  :)

For your vision of America and New Zealand working together with strong cross-cultural working relationships to touch the world and make it a better and stronger place… Dad… I thank you for your heart and vision! And… Angel Allen of North Carolina–hey sistal!]
