Romeo Miller Says Men Are Afraid Of Powerful Women Like Beyonce, Who Inspired Him To Get Back To Music

“Don’t be afraid to be strong. Don’t be afraid to be independent. A real man is going to be there and understand and you’re going to build an empire. You see that’s what Beyonce been doing.”

Back in the early 2000s, Romeo Miller (then known as rapper Lil Romeo) was probably every young girl's crush. Since then, he has done a lot of growing up and is now here to rep for the black woman. He has made this mission apparent in his latest interview with TheYBF.com

In the interview, Miller discussed how men are often afraid of powerful women even after vocalizing that is what they want in their lives. “I feel a lot of men nowadays, they say they want a strong woman and a powerful woman then when they come across them they are kind of afraid," Miller said. "I got four little sisters. The way that men go out and they’re independent, so why shouldn’t a woman be that way? I just want more women to have that mind frame cause Beyonce said it best ‘Who run the world? Girls!’ We’re only here because of a woman.”

Beyonce has had quite an impact on the 28-year-old, as he went on to say that not only did her Coachella performance inspire him to jump back into music, but also that she did the performance ten times better than any man. “Seeing Beyonce perform at Coachella is probably the most inspired I’ve been in a long time,” Romeo said. “Even with music, I’ve been away from music for a while because a lot of people lost the art of it. And seeing Beyonce perform, it was so inspiring. To see such a powerful and strong woman do it ten times better than any man."

He cited that the reason he stayed away from making music for so long was because he began to feel more about money than the actual art of it. Musically, he believes that he now falls in between the realm of Drake and J. Cole. However, the world won't have to wait too long to hear his new sound as he plans on releasing new music next month. One track is entitled "Real One," and he has a song with his dad, Master P., entitled "Islands."

Romeo is currently the host of MTV's new show Ex On The Beach which airs Thursdays at 9pm EST on MTV.

A Musical Inspired By 'Soul Train' Could Be Headed To Broadway

A musical inspired by the 1970s classic black television program, Soul Train, is on the radar for a Broadway debut. Host and creator, Don Cornelius, debuted the highlights of black music and culture.  The syndicated program ran from 1971- 2006, featuring guests like Aretha Franklin, James Brown, Marvin Gaye, and more.

The New York Times reports that a creative team of three of the most influential black women in the modern-day theater world will be the core of production. Kamilah Forbes, executive producer for the Apollo Theater, will sit as director, Camille A. Brown (Choir Boy) will choreograph, and Dominique Morisseau (Ain't Too Proud) sits as the writer for the script.

Questlove posted on his Twitter with the news.

He will sit alongside Tony Cornelius, Don Cornelius' son, as executive producer.

Known for it's famous "Soul Train" line, the musical will center the in-studio performers. "I thought it would be so interesting to tell the story of the dancers and Don, in connection and in contrast and in contradiction and in conflict with each other," Morisseau said.

The playwright also will infuse the different "origins of dance culture and the black experience."

Don Cornelius stepped down as the host in 1993. He later died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound in 2012 in his Los Angeles home. He was 75.

The musical is aiming for a 2021 premiere.

SZA Reveals Sophomore Album Is On the Way

2017 was a monumental year for R&B artist SZA. The sultry and soulful singer dropped her album Ctrl, garnering the most Grammy Award nominations for a female artist in 2018.

In an interview on Kerwin Frost Talks, "The Weekend" songstress alluded that her next studio album is coming "soon as f**k." "Everybody I f**k with and respect never had an issue on sophomore albums. People who make real music, no bullsh*t, have never struggled with a sophomore album," she said. "It is a little bit to dance in your brain like 'What do people want from me?' And then you just gotta make sh*t that feels good."

Following an MTV Video Music Award, a BET Award for Best New Artist, a Billboard Music Award for Top R&B Female Artist, two Soul Train Music Awards, and three NAACP Image Awards, her highly-anticipated project is coming from a place that she compares to cognitive dissonance. The New Jersey native is inspired by the sounds of Billie Holiday, John Coltrane, Björk, and Wu-Tang Clan.

With no official release date announced, fans can only wonder if they will have all of the feels that her debut album successfully achieved.
