The 2011 Soul Train Awards, which was taped on November 17 at the Fox Theater in Atlanta, GA, aired last night (November 27) on BET. Soul/R&B’s biggest night included winners like Chris Brown, Beyonce Knowles, Kelly Rowland and Rihanna.
Brown, who had five nominations going in, avoided going home empty handed by winning ‘Album of the Year’ for his latest release ‘F.A.M.E.’ The “Strip” star beat out Beyonce’s ‘4,’ Trey Songz’s ‘Passion, Pain & Pleasure,’ Adele’s ‘21,’ Jill Scott’s ‘The Light of the Sun,’ and Jay-Z & Kanye West’s ‘Watch the Throne’ to claim the title.
Brown’s ex-girlfriend Rihanna took home ‘Best Caribbean Performance’ for her hit single “Man Down” but lost in the category of ‘Best Dance Performance’ to Beyonce Knowles.
“Motivation” landed Kelly Rowland her first solo Soul Train Award for ‘Song of the Year,’ while Marsha Ambrosius took home ‘Record of the Year’ for her touching single “Far Away.”
Other winners included Miguel (Best New Artist), Cee-Lo Green (Best Male R&B and Soul), Mary Mary (Best Gospel Performance) and Jill Scott (Best Female R&B and Soul Artist).
During the celebration, the event paid tribute to late 90’s rapper Heavy D, with performance by Naughty by Nature, Doug E. Fresh, Kurtis Blow and Goodie Mob, who ended their set with: “We got nothing but love for you, Heavy!”
Additionally, Gladys Knight and Earth, Wind & Fire were honored during the event. Natalie Cole, Robin Thicke, Eric Benet, Marsha Ambrosius, Tamar Braxton and Bootsy Collins were among those who took part in honoring the music vets.

After a successful year on the charts, Chris Brown has decided to make some more noise, this time on the real estate market. Radar Online is reporting that Brown has snatched up a mansion in the Hollywood Hills for a cool $1.5 million. The price tag on the home is not the only eye-opening detail: When Brown moves in, he’ll be just miles away from his ex Rihanna.
According to listings site Zillow.com, Brown’s new digs went on the market back in 2009 for $2.6 million but dropped by over $1 million by the time the singer snatched it up in October.
Brown’s new home is eight miles from Rihanna’s front door. But they won’t be so close for long. She recently put her eight-bedroom Beverly Crest home on the market for $4.5 million, which, according to real estate site Blockshopper.com, is far above the average $1.35 million asking price for homes in her neighborhood.
Brown had been on the search for a new location since the spring, when, according to Radar, residents in his West Hollywood community complained about his loud lifestyle.
Those complaints might have been a blessing as they opened the door for Brown to score a major deal on the market with the mansion’s reduced price tag. The three-bedroom, three-bathroom bachelor pad is listed at 2473 square feet and, according to The Daily Mail, includes an elevator to go along with its outdoor pool, sleek modern patio and living room with two stories of windows.
Chris Brown knows how to put on a dance-tastic performance. And that’s exactly what the pop&B entertainer did at the 2011 American Music Awards on Sunday (November 20).
Donning a white T-shirt and jeans, Brown began his performance with his slow jam “All Back” alongside his band. With just a microphone stand in tow, the singer twirled around the stage and displayed some rather raw and emotional vocals. While it may have appeared to be a rather basic set, Breezy’s performance turned high-tech when the tune came to a close and the stage turned black.
Breezy continued his performance with another F.A.M.E. tune, “Say It With Me.” Keeping in sync with a computer-generated backdrop, the singer mirrored some Michael Jackson-esque moves with his four background dancers. As a spotlight followed the singer, CB pulled out an over-the-top choreographed sequence, full of backflips and spins that echoed similar backdrop technology used during Beyoncé’s “Run the World (Girls)” performance at the 2011 Billboard Music Awards.
Unfortunately for Brown, shortly after the performance, he lost his Soul/R&B Album nomination to ex-girlfriend Rihanna.
Even though Brown didn’t debut new material during his AMA set, Team Breezy can expect a batch of new tracks from the R&B singer when his new album, Fortune, drops next spring.
Check out the MQ and HQ pics along with a video of Chris’s performance below and let us what you think in the comments!
The performer roster for the upcoming 2011 American Music Awards continues to grow. The show, which airs on November 20 on ABC at 8 p.m. ET/PT, will feature performances from party starters LMFAO, Chris Brown and Marc Anthony. The three stars will join a previously announced group of performers that includes Justin Bieber, Katy Perry, Kelly Clarkson, Mary J. Blige, Christina Aguilera, Pitbull and Maroon 5. The host-free event will be broadcast live from the Nokia Theatre L.A. Live and be preceded by a one-hour red carpet ABC special at 7 p.m. The action will start even earlier with an online pre-show beginning at 5 p.m. EST hosted by former ‘NSYNC member Lance Bass, with help from Michael Buckley, Estelle, Sarah Hyland, Audrina Patridge, Josh Sussman and Xzibit. Aguilera and Maroon 5 will hook up to play their current smash hit “Moves Like Jagger.”
Last month, in a nomination special hosted by Pitbull and Nicki Minaj, it was revealed that Perry would head into the show as one of the night’s most-nominated acts (along with fellow females Adele, Lady Gaga and Taylor Swift), up for Artist of the Year, Pop or Rock Music: Favorite Female Artist and Adult Contemporary Music: Favorite Artist. It’s somewhat fitting, given not only the rather huge year she’s had, but that she also delivered a full-throttle version of her hit “Firework” at last year’s AMAs.
For the fifth year, American Music Award winners will be determined by online voting. Fans can support their favorites in all categories by heading over to AMAVote.com.
BET’s Hip-Hop Awards in Atlanta tonight reminded all of us that despite Twitter wars and media frenzy, Chris Brown is in the music industry for a reason.
The young artist was awarded with three honors, including Best Hip-Hop Video for “Look at Me Now,” but was not in attendance since he’s currently on his F.A.M.E tour. However, he tweeted, “Thank you BET but most of all TeamBreezy”
The show, hosted by funnyman Mike Epps and emceed by Da Brat (good to know she’s still around) opened up with a performance by—wait for it—T.I. No word on whether or not he arrived on a party bus.
Here’s what else happened…
Between some pretty entertaining cypher freestyles, many notable names, like Wiz Khalifa, Heavy D and Tyrese, Rick Ross and the Maybach Music Group, Big Sean and even recently released DMX alongside Swizz Beatz, hit the stage and rocked the crowd.
Lupe Fiasco also took the mic and gave a very political (not supersurprising) performance with a mysteriously masked female vocalist who turned out to be Erykah Badu.
But let’s get to the nitty-gritty and see who won what:

We hope you weren’t expecting a slow, relaxing weekend — because here’s a little Fastlife coming at you. In the latest song from Joe Jonas’ speedy-living LP, the guido impersonator apparently abandons his desire to “See No More” by shedding light on a turbulent relationship gone sour. And if you feel a bit of a Chris Brown vibe beaming out from this track, that’s not an accident — ’cause guess who co-wrote the tune with Kevin McCall? Yep — Breezy! (Production provided by Hit-Boy, in case you were wondering.) Is it a seaworthy effort, or should it be dashed upon the rocks? Listen to “Lighthouse” below to find your way ashore.
The song’s got an unusual beat, and Breezy’s influence is very clearly felt in this melancholy jam (especially since he provides the background vocals). It kinda feels like the male R&B equivalent of “Skyscraper,” if a bit more produced — both tracks are named after buildings, after all!
J. Cole is riding high this week after the release of his debut, Cole World: The Sideline Story. Aside from the inevitable euphoria that comes with dropping one’s first album, relative newcomer Cole also got a chance to work with Jay-Z, Missy Elliott and Trey Songz on the project. But fans shouldn’t expect the high-profile collaborations to stop there thanks to DJ Drama.
On October 11, the Atlanta DJ will drop his latest album, Third Power, on which he paired Cole with Chris Brown for a track titled “Undercover.”
“We were searching for tracks for Chris,” Drama explained to MTV News about how he and producer V12 the Hitman came up with the song. “We got something, Chris went in. I thought about it for a minute: Who hasn’t he worked with, who hasn’t he been on a record with?”
That meant excluding heavy hitters like Lil Wayne, Busta Rhymes, Kanye West and Swizz Beatz, who are among CB’s army of previous collaborators. Drama eventually thought to link Brown with Roc Nation’s rookie rapper Cole, and although the pair appeared together on little-known British rapper Chipmunk’s “Champion (Remix),” Drama’s “Undercover” will mark the first time Cole and Breezy co-headline a song.
“J. Cole has definitely been doing his thing,” Drama added. “That’s another guy that I have a lot of respect for and am excited for what he’s been accomplishing, so we made that allegiance right there; plus, you got some bars from Breezy.”
Brown already has a dedicated female fanbase and Cole — thanks to songs like his R&B-tinged “Can’t Get Enough” and a feature on Miguel’s hit “All I Want Is You” — is becoming a heartthrob himself. Whatever the case, Drama is pretty sure the song will win women over. “I think the ladies gonna like this one,” he said.
MediaFakeOut MediaTakeOut broke the “news” that Chris Brown’s girlfriend, Karrueche Tran, was pregnant. They claimed that a “reliable source” heard from Karrueche herself that she was 2 months pregnant with Chris’s baby.
News spread all over, and even popular radio stations were talking about it on the air. Chris took to Twitter today to squash the rumor:
@chrisbrown: And so we are clear @Karrueche is not pregnant!!! Lol
