5 Vixens We'd Like to See Give a Kanye West-Like Rant

As glamorous as it may seem to be famous, it is definitely hard work. The lack of privacy, hectic schedules and pressure to be perfect can be overwhelming and downright scary to have on your plate all at once. The following ladies on our list have all been subject to the pressures of fame but have (for the most part) held their composure and developed a tough skin--almost too tough. In the wake of Kanye's recent rants in Europe (and in general), Vixen has complied a list of composed ladies that we wish would put their image aside for a second and tell us the real deal. -- Christopher Lowery

Ciara rant


If you have seen or heard an interview with Ciara, you know how eloquent she is. She has always managed to maintain a clean image and generally saved any racy material for her art. But what if CiCi were to give us a little bit of that on-stage fire and tell us what's really going on in her mind? I mean, we'd have a lot to vent about if our music career was waning.

RIhanna rant



As bold as her antics are these days, Rihanna still finds a way to keep her ice princess demeanor. If her Twitter spats are any indication, the girl indeed has a mouth on her. A rant from Rihanna would not only be edifying, it would be entertaining with quotables for days. #Phuckyorant.

Keri Hilson rant


Keri Hilson

Not the biggest fan-favorite at the moment, Keri Hilson never quite addressed the public's obvious displeasure with her about, well, everything. She threw shots at Beyoncé and Ciara indirectly on the remix to "Turning Me On" then avoided the topic whenever it was brought up, blaming it on a producer who wasn't supposed to leak that version. All this makes one wonder why is Keri really mad? We know there is something bothering you, girl. Let it out.

Keyshia Cole rant


Keyshia Cole

There is no mistaking Keyshia for some soft-spoken, timid girl. So instead of taking cheap shots at Michelle Williams after her performance at this year's Super Bowl, maybe she can be the woman she claims to be in her music and sound off about everything. Heck, make another reality show about it...or let us know the real reason you and Jeezy broke up?

Nicki Minaj rant

Nicki Minaj

Nicki Minaj is the reigning empress of female rappers at the moment. She went from rapping on steps to judging American Idol in less than three years. A transition that fast has got to take its toll on you,  and we know things aren't all happy and colorful as her persona makes it seem (see: Mariah Carey beef). Could you imagine a rant from Nicki featuring all of her many personalities? That's popcorn-worthy.

Kelly Rowland Says Her Highly-Anticipated Project Is "Definitely Coming"

Six years ago, Kelly Rowland released her fourth studio album titled Talk a Good Game. The project boasted hit singles like "Kisses Down Low" and the transparent "Dirty Laundry." Now, the Houston native is preparing to release a project that'll surely satisfy fans' patient earbuds.

In an interview with Billboard, Rowland shared her hopes for putting out a new body of work and the pressure that she's encountered since she's been in the studio. "This is by far the longest, most pressure-filled process ever, only because I know what it's supposed to be and I have been so hard on myself. I know it," she said. "And it's the first time I've said it out loud. I've been extremely hard on myself. But it's definitely coming, and I'm more so excited about this project than anything else."

The news follows the recent release of Rowland's "Kelly" track, which was met with critical acclaim in November 2018. In addition to preparing the release of new music, the "Motivation" singer discussed fans' wish for a Destiny's Child reunion. The rumors have been fueled by social media photographs of Rowland with either Beyonce or Michelle or all three, especially during Beyonce's past Coachella performance. But Rowland assures readers that it's not what they think.

"It's so funny. I guess every time people see us together, they just see music but I see sisterhood, and that's what we are and that's what me, her, Michelle [Williams] and Solange and I are. People see us all together, they immediately think music. I'm like, no. Just family." As Rowland previously mentioned Solange, she hopes to one day work with her again.

"I'm a huge fan," she said. "I love her writing and how detailed and particular she is. I always wanted to figure out how the heck she has so many different layers of harmonies when she is constructing these vocals, and it's so complex but simple. It's genius. It's the genius in her genius mind that she has in there." One of the last times the pair collaborated was on Rowland's "Simply Deep" track off her debut solo album of the same name. Solange also penned a few songs off the same project. Fast forward to 2016, and Rowland's vocals were featured on Solange's iconic A Seat at the Table.

Teyana Taylor To Pay Homage To Ballroom Culture In "WTP" Video

Teyana Taylor aims to keep her hot streak of innovative videos coming thanks to this recent announcement. Taking to Instagram on Wednesday (Jan. 9), the "Gonna Love Me" singer will show adoration to ballroom culture in the visual for "WTP."

Directed by Gregory "Beef" Jones, The Aunties Inc., and Taylor herself, the Harlemite takes viewers on her journey to the expression-filled space where she hopes to rack up 10s across the board from a group of judges. The premise of the video also seems to follow a mockumentary format airing on a fictional network named FEMTV. Alongside Taylor, other men and women get ready to display their talents and confidence on the ballroom floor.

"WTP" is featured on the mother-of-one's sophomore album, K.T.S.E., which was released in June 2018. While the rollout's controversy didn't entirely muddle the excitement behind the project's debut, Taylor said she was sold on the idea that her album would be treated as the biggest out of G.O.O.D. Music's string of releases last year.

"I didn't know ahead of time that there wouldn't be any singles or visuals. But I knew that it was going to be the five-album thing," she said during a HOT 97 interview. "[Kanye] wanted [my album] to be last, he wanted mine to be the biggest. That's the way they sauced it up. I was sold."

The video will debut on Jan. 19. Check out the teaser below.

Trina Braxton’s Ex-Husband, Gabe Solis, Dies After Battle With Cancer

Gabe Solis, the ex-husband of Trina Braxton, lost his battle with cancer, Thursday (Dec. 20),  TMZ reports. He was 43.

Solis passed away at his home in Texas, surrounded by friends and family, according to the outlet. No official details have been released about his passing.

Solis had reportedly been keeping his cancer battle private. His death came as a shock to his loved ones. On Friday (Dec. 21), Braxton seemingly mourned the loss of her ex-husband with a cryptic Instagram meme reading, “I need a hug..E bottle of wine.”

The former couple tied the knot in 2003, and appeared together on previous seasons of WEtv’s Braxton Family Values. Despite finalizing their divorce in 2015, Braxton and Solis confronted lingering issues from their marriage during an episode of Iyanla: Fix My Life, earlier in the year.

Braxton has since moved on to a new relationship, but remained friends with Solis.
