The XBox One was revealed today at the #XBoxReveal event by Microsoft and it's had the social media networks buzzing about their thoughts on the new gaming system. It looks like Microsoft is stressing the living room experience and incorporating live TV into the system. I need to find out more about how this works, because I'm pretty sure I could just press the HDMI button on my remote if I wanted to watch TV. I think it will be integrated more though and they already showcased some in-game live TV sequences that were built into the game. Other than that, one new feature that caught my eye is that Skype will be the main communication software between gamers. I like that consolidation and Microsoft, who bought Skype, is naturally utilizing it in their upcoming next-gen console. Overall though, I'm not too impressed, but these screenshots of RGIII in Madden are looking pretty crispy. NBA LIVE 14 is also coming — as a die-hard LIVE fan, I'm always intrigued.
Gamers, in addition to the pics, enjoy this humorous editing job on the "XBox One Reveal Highlights" as well as the new trailer for Call of Duty: Ghosts, out this November. More details on the XBox One here.
Late night TV guests, you now have a new entrance to try and top. Will Smith comes out to greet Letterman and feels so jazzed up by the band's live rendition of "Summertime" that he kicks the rhymes for the crowd and audience watching at home. All with his Fresh Prince superstar swagger. If Will spits these types of lyrics with this type of energy, I'm all on board for his return to music... Kanye, now that the album's done, there's not too much better ways to spend your time than to keep reinspiring Will in the studio!
A nice mix of features and solo tracks for Kelly Rowland off one glance at the tracklist to her upcoming album, Talk A Good Game. In fact, these features should only pique the curiousity of fans of everyone involved. The only track out so far is "Dirty Laundry", which is a personal one that even the casual observer should check out, so I can only imagine this news enhancing the buzz for Kelly. Destiny's Child fans, how psyched are you for track #7? I can also see Kelly mixing well with Wiz & Pusha T on their features respectively. The album drops on June 18th (add another one to that date, folks).
Chief Keef was arrested in Atlanta yesterday after a security guard at the hotel Sosa was staying in smelled marijuana smoke coming from his room. Apparently the security guard couldn't do his job, so he called in the po. Keef was released early this morning, tweeting "Jus Got Out Of Dekalb County jail In Atlanta Mad As Fuck." #Snitches

On a side note, I will guiltily admit that seeing this necklace on Rihanna was the final deciding factor in purchasing this necklace.
Guess who won't have to be singing "Nah nah whats my name" anymore!
Yahoo just recently acquired Tumblr for a whopping 1.1 BILLION DOLLARS, but thats just a fraction of the cost of what Wall Street Journal News Corp bought MySpace for ($580 Million just in case your were wondering). Yahoo vows to not ruin the free spirited site like how WSJ ruined MySpace, but lets see how this pans out.
Even though I hadn't touched my own tumblr in months, I had to log in and browse the site while its still good and I found this amazing site. Rappers looking like Magicians.
Rappers and Magicians just seem too obvious and too easy... why haven't I seen this sooner?!
Will Smith and his beautiful show girl, Jada Pinkett... thats too easy.
Never before have so many magicians been assembled together at one time. The Doggfather, The Hammerman, The Magnificent Makaveli, and their lovely assistant, Sugar Bear. Classics. - via Magical Rappers
