With Burning Spear breaking the Marley's winning streak last year, Stephen Marley has started the winning streak once more by walking away with the Grammy award for Best Reggae Album at the 52nd Annual Grammy Awards held on Sunday (January 31) at Staples Center in Los Angeles.

In 2007 Stephen Marley released Mind Control for which, he also won a Grammy. He immediately went back to the drawing board to "sketch-up" another Grammy winning album "Mind Control Acoustic" which is the follow-up for Mind Control.

Stephen Marley's Mind Control Acoustic which was released under various labels (Ghetto Youths/Tuff Gong/Universal Republic) went up against Rasta Got Soul - Buju Banton (Gargamel Music, Inc.)

Awake - Julian Marley (Ghetto Youths/Tuff Gong/Universal Republic)
Imperial Blaze - Sean Paul (VP/Atlantic)
Brand New Me - Gregory Isaacs (Tad's Record)

Stephen's older brother Ziggy Marley was also victorious at the Grammys winning The Children's Musical Album category for a project titled "Family Time" which makes it his fifth hold on the Grammy Award.

Can Miss America Caressa Cameron Survive Tabloids - So, sex tapes, anyone?

By TheImproper

missamerica-black-girl.jpgCaressa Cameron, a 22-year-old college student was named Miss America last night (Jan. 31), but now the real contest will begin. Can she stand tabloid scrutiny?

The next 48 hours will be critical for Cameron and the pageant.

Tabloid reporters are undoubtedly fanning out, cash in hand, looking for nude photos, lesbian relationships, sex tapes, extreme viewpoints and anything else that reveals the real Caressa Cameron.

Beauty pageants have fallen out of favor of late, which has reduced the Miss America pageant from prime-time television extravaganza to minor cable television event. But public interest remains strong in the winner.

The image of pageants hasn’t been helped by repeated scandals, usually after tabloids unearth embarrassing background information on contestants - from secret boob jobs to racy photographs.

Vanessa Williams, the first African American Miss America, was forced to resign after some erotic nude photos of her and another woman surfaced.

Portmore Empire Seeks To Recoup Losses From Gaza Kim's Departure

By Ms. RAINE INC.

vybzkartel-gaza-kim.jpgIn light of the announcement that artist Kim Hamilton--formerly known as Gaza Kim, now known as Kym--has chosen to exit the Portmore Empire and Adidjahiem Records, Empire leader and record company CEO Adidja "Vybz Kartel" Palmer issues the following statement:

The Portmore Empire invested a substantial amount of money in the career of singer Kim Hamilton--filming music videos, printing promotional posters and clocking several hours in the studio honing her talent. We're disappointed that she felt the need to issue a press release to the media announcing her departure from the record label, Adidjaheim Records, without first notifying the company. This is particularly disturbing given the fact that she is still under contract and the record company has fulfilled its end of the agreement.

Gay Groups Urge Grammys to Denounce Buju Banton

buju-banton-reggae-artiste-grammy.jpgLOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Gay rights groups angry about a Grammy nomination for jailed Jamaican reggae singer Buju Banton took out a full page advert on Friday, protesting the honoring of an artist they said had "promoted the murder of gay people throughout his career."

Banton, 36, is up for a best reggae album award for his "Rasta Got Soul" release at the Grammys on Sunday. He is currently in jail in Florida awaiting trial on a cocaine charge and will not be attending the awards show.

In an advert in Hollywood show business paper Daily Variety, the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation and the Los Angeles Gay and Lesbian Center urged Grammy organizers to use Sunday's televised ceremony to denounce music "that promotes or celebrates violence against any group of people."

Alliance marches through Canada

Mavadolondon.jpgMavado's historic 10 city tour which has Canada buzzing kicked off last night to a packed house in London, Ontario. The country-wide tour is already sold out and will culminate in front of a crowd of thousands next weekend at the Sound Academy in Toronto.

During next week Mavado, with opening acts Future Fambo and Stacious, will make the long trek to western Canada for shows in Edmonton, Calgary and Vancouver before heading back to several shows in and around Ontario.

The inaugural show in London saw a large and very mixed crowd, of mostly females, who were extremely responsive to the Gully Gad. Alliance selector Boom Boom whipped the crowd into a frenzy before Mavado took to the stage.

"There were a lot of different nations in there last night," said Mavado. "It's good to see them singing along to my new material as well as the older songs, which means Dancehall is definitely spreading to a wider audience."

With Mavado and the travelling party already experiencing snow blizzards and temperatures as low as -9, the heat he is bringing to Canada will definitely help.

Hello, I'm Tiger Woods and I'm a sex addict

If Tiger Woods is a sex addict, the treatment will be long and intense

By Tim Dahlberg (CP)
The Canadian Press

tiger-woods-secret.jpgThose might be the toughest words Woods ever had to say, assuming, of course, he stood up and said them at a clinic in Mississippi.

That's also assuming Woods is currently residing at the Pine Grove Behavioural Health and Addiction Services clinic in Hattiesburg, Miss., though photos taken by a certain tabloid suggest it to be true.

If so, the world's greatest golfer is under the care of a superstar in his own field, sexual addiction treatment pioneer Patrick Carnes.

Unfortunately for Woods, greatness on the greens doesn't count in group therapy. Unlike golf, he has hardly any way of controlling what goes on.

It begins the same way for all. You can't be treated until you acknowledge there's a problem.

"I don't know if he can stand up and say it," said celebrity shrink Dr. Drew Pinsky, who hosted a VH1 sexual addiction reality show. "But it's a key component of these things."

The Ultimate Wants To Reach The Youths Through Music

The%20Ultimate.jpgAlthough it might sound clichéd upcoming deejay The Ultimate really wants to make a difference in the music biz. The talented deejay who hails from Portmore says his greatest desire is to reach the youths through his music in a positive way. Cognizant of the fact that young minds are easily influenced The Ultimate has chosen to do only positive music. The Ultimate firmly believes that if more artists take this route and use all available avenues to promote their music heavily to get positive messages to the youths we will see a big change in Jamaica.

"As an artist I want to make a positive impact on the mind of the youths. I am a father and I want my son and people's children to grow up in a better Jamaica. That's why I don’t record certain types of songs", said The Ultimate.

The Ultimate is currently enjoying steady rotation on radio stations with messaged laced singles such as the anti-violence anthem 'I Wish, Nine To Five and Look Around You. The accompanying music video for 'I Wish' is also receiving good airplay.

The Ultimate is currently in the process of shooting a music video in support of his latest single which is titled Look Around You. The music video is being shot and directed by music video production company Terminal Four and is being filmed at locations across the downtown area of Kingston. The shooting of the video is expected to be completed before the end of the week.

.

Modeled after the famed annual Grammy Awards, with all the pomp and pageantry characteristic of such a ceremony, and now in its sixth year, the EME Awards are the brainchild of-renowned Hot 102-FM radio personality Richard "Richie B" Burgess. They emerged out of a need for an authentic and grass roots based recognition of achievement in Jamaican
music and entertainment.

Efforts are underway to make this year's event the best award show ever staged on the shores of Jamaica. The overwhelming support and popularity of the awards are why they were relocated from the studios of Hot 102-FM to a venue that can accommodate the large following the ceremonies have amassed over the years. The EMEs have garnered the full backing of the CVM Group, including CVM-TV, X-NEWS Newspaper as well as Hot 102-FM and many other local media entities, with coverage also provided by international media like BETJ, and an endorsement from the Jamaica Tourist Board.

Ja Rule Faces Gun Charges In Nyc

By: Janine Coveney
kbsradio
International News

ja-rule-gun.jpgVeteran rapper Ja Rule was in a New York City courtroom on Wednesday (January 20th) where he lost his bid to have his gun possession case dismissed. Though Ja's attorney Stacey Richman argued that the police did not have just cause to search the rapper's Maybach after a July 007 concert at the Beacon Theatre that featured Kanye West and Lil Wayne, Manhattan Superior Court Judge Richard Carruthers denied the motion. Prosecutors say the stop was warranted because the car had no insurance and a suspended registration. They did retrieve a .40 caliber handgun that contained Ja Rule's DNA.

Ja Rule -- whose real name is Jeffrey Atkins -- got one break in the case. Though he admitted to police at the time that he was in possession of marijuana, the judge ruled that he will not face drug possession charges.

Atkins has pleaded not guilty to the charges. He faces up to three and a half years in jail if convicted.

Review: Tooth Fairy Is Only Very Bad, Not Terrible

By ERIC D. SNIDER
Flim.com

tooth-fairy-dwayne-johnson-stephen-merchant.jpg

Tooth Fairy stars Dwayne Johnson as an arrogant minor-league hockey player who is forced to serve a stint as the title character as penance for his disbelief in magic, or dreams, or something. The motivation for this scenario, obviously, is that someone thought it would be hilarious to see The Rock wearing wings and a tutu. Not that I dispute this, necessarily, but it's hardly enough to hang a movie on.

The best that can be said for the film is that, despite its description, it is not unbearable. It can be borne. Indeed, there are actually some laughs in the early scenes, thanks to a supporting cast whose comedic skills are more finely tuned than those of the broad, hammy Dwayne Johnson. We will get to them in a moment, once I have filled you in on the stupid premise of the stupid plot.

It is as follows. Derek Thompson, whose name was probably chosen because it sounds a lot like Dwayne Johnson, is a smug, preening hockey player nicknamed the Tooth Fairy because of his penchant for knocking out opposing players' teeth. He's a big star, the Tooth Fairy; the crowds love him. Yet the film tries to tell us that, in addition to being a fan favorite, he is also a washed-up has-been who everyone thinks is too old to play. Why the movie thought it could pass him off as both of these things, I do not know, but here we are.

Once again Vybz Kartel has proven how talented he is when it comes on to spitting creative lyrics - as Vybz Kartel explains how curious media personnel's are - "suh dem - tune into him every morning like Raggashanti" - (Gossip Talk Show)

This song is about Vybz Kartel's personal life which seems to make the headlines daily and has now become the public's favorite dish of soap-opera. However while many are looking in, looking out and hoping for him to fail Vybz Kartel seems to be looking even better each day like CVM TV.

"This is a song for the Jamaicans especially because of the personalities I make reference to who are our Jamaican stars, they might not necessarily be world renowned but the style and concept is Universal," Vybz Kartel told OutAroad.com.

"While a dat a gwaan pon what a gwaan" Vybz Kartel is definitely gearing up to make this 2010 a year to be remembered. Already he has released several new joints such as 2010, "Unfaithful"(don't kill him inuh"), just to name a few. However the females can expect another ladies anthem to be released soon called "Know Bout Me" ft Indu produced by Dj Neil (CVM TV Hitlist's DJ) for Cashflow Records who's also responsible for the creative production of Vybz Kartel's recent hit single Life Wi Living that was released on both Cashflow and Adidjahiem labels.

Folks we have come to the end of our show for tonight - "A Dat A Gwaan Pon What A Gwaan".

Assassin a.k.a. Agent Sasco - The New Performance King

Assassin_RebelSalute_2010.jpgAssassin has secured his place as one of dancehalls best stage performers. This was evident at the recent staging of Pepsi Rebel Salute where he closed the show. Thousands of patrons waited in the morning sun for Agent Sasco to take the stage. It was not until 8:25 am that Assassin, dressed in full khaki, took the stage to deliver yet another splendid performance. He had fans singing along to hits like Hand to mouth, Wha Do Dem Guy Deh,Priority, Almighty Protect to name a few.

Stage show fans have shown that Assassin performance is the type of performance that is appreciated and should be expected from top artist of his caliber. Too long they have been shortchanged by artists who choose to do two lines of each song then "Pull Up" or "Dash Whey Dat" to the patrons’ disgust as they really never get to hear the songs performed but only to be teased.

Assassin has grown over the years, and with growth come maturity and Agent Sasco is the product of such. Agent Sasco is an extension of Assassin that focuses more on the issues in society. He has been giving excellent performances even receiving and extended round of applause after his recent performance at Sting 2009 and proved to be the “Real Big Man” at Guinness Sounds of Greatness.

Rihanna's New Boo, Matt Kemp Is A Woman Beater, Too?

Rihanna_Matt_Kemp_Yacht.jpgWord on the street is that Rihanna's new 'unboyfriend' Matt Kemp has a dark history behind him. According to at least one of his ex-girlfriends, Matt Kemp has a violent history. Here's what the mags are saying:

"Apparently Rihanna's new man LA Dodgers star Matt Kemp has a history of anger management issues and violence towards women. His ex, actress Felisha Terrell, had to file a restraining order against him (in 2008), which stated, "He is violent and I am afraid." Felisha claimed she suffered “constant verbal abuse and threats." He also allegedly changed the locks on their apartment and had his friends drive up and down the street to intimidate her.
Terrell in her application for the restraining order claimed that Matt was "kicked out of a club for fighting with a woman - I am afraid his behavior will turn towards me since we are no longer dating".

Oh-Kay.... So, Rihanna jumps out of the arms of one domestic abuser into the arms of an alleged one? We're beginning to think that Rihanna is having problems picking men...

jahcure-babymama.jpgOutAroad.com gets to understand that Jah Cure who has been accused of being the baby daddy of Gordene's child is now in a state of shock after discovering he's the "Step Father".

Between 2009 and 2010 Jah Cure is now the second entertainer to find out that he's fathering another man's child.

The moment the results came out Jah Cure had DNA Daddy Not Available posted on his BB status.

According to a source when Jah Cure requested that he wanted to do a DNA test he was denied of his wish by his accused baby-mama Gordene. She however went ahead with his decision only to find out that "Jah Cure Is Not The Father."

The first baby father saga started with Craig (Voicemail) who was accused by video vixen model Rosie that he's the father of her child. Craig however got suspicious and requested to do a DNA test which indicates that he's also a step father. She then accused Chino of being the father who acts manly by doing the DNA test which proves that he's the father.

Protoje Collaborates With Don Corleon

Protoje_shades.jpg2010 is shaping up to be an explosive year for talented new reggae artist Protoje, who is looking to take his career to new heights under the guidance of his cousin Donovan ‘Don Corleon’ Bennett. Since he began working with the topflight record producer last December he has been writing and recording a number of tracks to complete his upcoming album The Seven Year Itch. The first fruit of this wonderful collaboration is a haunting reggae track titled Dread which has been getting heavy radio play both locally and abroad since its release two weeks ago. Dread has been endorsed by the likes of top jocks such ZJ Liquid (ZIP FM), ZJ Elektra (ZIP FM) and DJ Wayne (IRIE FM) among others.

“A Don Corleon production will be very good to build on my current momentum,” said Protoje, whose given name is Oje Ollivierre.

“Dread was the one,” explained Corleon as he recalls listening to a selection of his kin’s tracks one day in his studio. After being told that the tune had been recorded and remixed on three separate occasions without the desired outcome, the prolific hit making producer decided it was time for proper execution. The first verse begins with a reminiscent reference to the recently arrested Buju Banton (“hockey jersey inna heat, Patrick Ewings on the feet / Buju Banton on the beat, uunu ‘member dat! / ’92 December dat!”), a mere coincidence since Protoje wrote the song a long time ago.

Flippa gets EME Awards DJ of The Year Nominee

FLIPPA_MAFIA.jpgDancehall deejay Flippa Mafia, has come a long way in one short year. In December 2008, he was the new kid on the dancehall block, capturing the imagination of the massives with his money-throwing, champagne-poppin’ gimmicks, while taking the term ‘flossing’ to dizzying heights.

However, by December 2009, he was the acknowledged Flossing King and had enjoyed a a year in which his career soared and saw him having a presence on local and international charts, even securing # one spots on Richie B’s charts.

Therefore, it doesn’t come as any surprise that Flippa Mafia has been nominated in the prestigious DJ of the Year category for this year’s Excellence in Music and Entertainment (EME) Awards.
“You know that we don’t really work for award, but it’s a plus to be recognized in this way for your contribution to the development of the music,” was Flippa’s response.
The deejay took time out to praise conceptualizer of the awards, Richard ‘Richie B’ Burgess. “This is a good thing that Richie B is doing and big respect to him for this,”

Lisa Hype - Not Every Man You Fi Trust

By Krazy Katty
OutAroad.com Writer

lisahype-trust-vybz-kartel.jpgLisa Hyper seems to be flipping the script from clashing to love songs as her latest single titled Trust explains her faithfulness for a particular man.

According to a source close to Lisa Hyper - "The single is mostly geared towards advising young girls not to make the same mistake as Lisa's, but at the same time she secretly addresses her being expelled from the Portmore Empire".

However with lines like "all in a fi him head a him win di game, but him never know him only gi mi more fame" is more than enough clue to tell who the lyrics hitting on.

This track has certainly shows the artistic side of Lisa Hyper and if she continues this versatile trend then she will definitely have a great 2010.

Trust was produced by Jj Wizzle.

Is Kanye West Getting Married with Plastic Surgery?

kanye-amber-rose-bikini.jpgKanye West hasn't been making headlines lately, so it was with much interest that Make Me Heal learned that he may be engaged to his attention seeking girlfriend, former stripper Amber Rose. The couple is said to be heading towards matrimony on a tropical island, but without plastic surgery.

32-year old Kanye lost his mother to plastic surgery back in 2007 during a liposuction procedure, so it makes sense that he would seek a natural beauty like Amber Rose to make his life partner.

Amber Rose has a stunning figure, which she frequently shows off, but she doesn't appear to have the breast implants or nose job that are so popular with many strippers and models.

Born, Theo O. Smith, one of three children, has spent most of his musical life in the Garrison of Flankers located in Montego Bay, Jamaica’s second city.

After coming to live in Flankers in 2003, Theo entered into an atmosphere where music and aspiring artiste were everywhere such as the now popular group Merrital (My Money Ha Ha). Being a youngster without much guidance or help to pursue a traditional career Theo fooled around with a few rhymes, and after getting a favorable response from friends and family, Tall P was born.

But Tall P did not stop writing new songs. The label heard a few fresh materials from Tall P in October 2009, and decided that it is now time to place much more emphasis on him, so music fans can now look out for a shockwave across the island of Jamaica.

Rihanna - "Every woman should have naked pictures taken"

rihanna-magazine-photos1.jpgIn recent months, Rihanna has been in the headlines for her lack of clothing nearly as much as her music.

Just weeks after declaring 'every woman should have naked pictures taken', the 21-year-old has peeled off again for a revealing new photoshoot.

In stunning black and white images for the new issue of American magazine W, Rihanna goes topless as she talks about her recovery from her difficult 2009.

The topless shots, taken from the side and behind, give Rihanna the opportunity to show off her extended tattoo collection.

The star has a series of stars on the nape of her neck, a gun under her armpit and a tribal pattern on her right hand.

In the accompanying interview, the Bajan singer admitted recording her latest album Rated R proved a therapeutic experience, with many of her songs being inspired by her break-up from Chris Brown after he assaulted her.

mr_proppafix_logo.jpg

Dear readers I am sorry for the absence of my column (Mr. ProppaFix). I had to stop the column as it gets closer to the end of my last year in University completing my Masters. However, I am back and ready for 2010 to give you a Proppa Fix, so send your letters to mr.proppafix@gmail.com


Dear Mr. Proppafix,

Hey my name is Alyssa and I need your help - wondering if I should get pregnant. I am only fifteen but my life is hectic and I need someone to love.

----------------------------------------------------------
Dear Alyssa,

I am here wondering too Alyssa. I am startled to know that you are just fifteen and already you are contemplating if you should get pregnant.

You also complained that you are living a hectic lifestyle - you did not mention the reason(s) for your lifestyle to be hectic. However, the only thing that should be occupying your teenage years right now is school.

"I need someone to love," are your exact words. Alyssa this is where I am going to recommend that you address this issue with your mother, if you are scared to talk to your mom about it then try to confide in your school’s guidance counselor.

Alyssa I am begging you to erase those foolish thoughts, you are too young to be thinking about getting pregnant and searching for love.

That's my advice young woman tek it or leave it.

'Avatar' sets sights on director Cameron's 'Titanic' record

By Scott Bowles, USA TODAY

Is it time to talk Titanic?

avatar-movie-pictures.jpgJames Cameron's sci-fi opus Avatar claimed the No. 1 spot at the box office for the fourth straight weekend and continues to demolish records.

The film raked in $48.5 million, according to studio estimates from Nielsen EDI. The haul brings Avatar's total to $429 million.

The picture shattered the record held for highest fourth-weekend ticket sales. The previous title holder: Titanic, which did $28.7 million in 1997.

The weekend haul also moved Avatar to seventh on the all-time list of biggest films. The strong hold - the movie dropped just 29% from last weekend - means it could be in striking distance of The Dark Knight, which is the second biggest film.

That would leave it chasing Titanic's most prized title: highest-grossing film of all-time with $601 million.

'Daybreakers' Predates 'Twilight,' Willem Dafoe Says

DAYBREAKERS-001.jpg

"Daybreakers," the latest film to drive home the idea that vampires are most definitely in right now, is about as far as you can get from the romance and diamond sparkles of "Twilight." It's bloody, it's violent, and it portrays humanity as an endangered species, a dwindling food supply squandered by the excesses of the latest dominant life form on the planet.

The near-future world created by writer/directors Peter and Michael Spierig is one that falls very close to our own, with the main difference being that Average Joes and Janes are mostly active at night. And a change in their diet, of course. It's a clever twist on established vampire tropes, a look at a world in which the blood-suckers have won.

"I thought the approach was really fresh," Willem Dafoe told MTV in a recent interview. The actor stars as Lionel "Elvis" Cormac, a one-time vampire who regains his humanity following a freak accident. Dafoe plays the role of hero in the movie, working to save the last remaining vestiges of humanity from being turned into lunch.

Buju Banton Pleaded Not Guilty In Court Today - Remanded

By J-Tymz
OutAroad.com Writer

buju-banton-laughing.jpg

Rasta Got Soul reggae singer Buju Banton pleaded not guilty to cocaine charge in federal court today (January 7) Florida.

The 36-year-old reggae star, born Mark Myrie - lawyer David Markus did not seek bail for his client as it wouldn't make much of a difference if he's bonded out of jail. Immigration officials would still hold the Gargamel captive.

According to Buju's lawyer David Markus, there is no need to seek a deal because his client is innocent of the charge.

This means Buju Banton will definitely not be able to attend the Grammy Awards on January 31 for which his Ratsa Got Soul album was nominated in the category of Best Reggae Album

Richie_B.jpgThe prestigious Excellence In Music and Entertainment (EME) Awards is back and this year's staging of the event will be on Thursday February 4, at the Gardens at the Jamaica Pegasus Hotel, 81 Knutsford Boulevard, Kingston. The EME Awards is the brainchild of popular radio personality Richard 'Richie B' Burgess. He created this award show to honor the players in the local music industry, both past and present, for their hard work in creating and maintaining excellence within our rich musical culture. The EME Awards is a non-profit venture.

Since its humble beginnings back in 2005, as a small in studio production, the Excellence In Music and Entertainment (EME) Awards has grown to become one of the most eagerly anticipated events on the local entertainment calendar, due primarily, to its high production standards. The EME Awards has garnered unwavering support and popularity through the years and has attracted coverage from both the local and international media. Last year, the presence of America's BETJ Channel, provided quite a fillip for the EMEs and their repeat airings of the event has definitely added to the excitement both here and abroad. Over 85% of the awardees were in attendance for both the 2008 and 2009 staging and the organizers hope to improve on that this year. This is a clear indication of the respect the industry has for this event. 2010 promises to be even bigger and better.

Avatar Is A Must See - Movie Review

"Avatar" had another stellar weekend with $68.3 million domestically, shooting past $1 billion worldwide, only the fifth movie ever to hit that mark. - Washingtonpost

avatar-movie-photos.jpgPosted by: jasonjim

I saw Avatar on December 30th. Avatar is a movie that must be seen in a 3D theatre to get the best effect and pleasure out of it. It would not be the same watching it on TV, much of the impact would be lost or diminished.

This is a beautiful movie to watch. Earth has trees and mountains and plants, but you have never ever seen trees and mountains and plants like they appear in this movie on the planet of Pandora. Especially the trees, they are truly majestic. When the Hometree is destroyed by military gunfire it brings a pang to the heart to see something so majestic and powerful finally fall to the ground. The mountainous scenes are awesome. The CGI is spectacular, worth the price of admission alone.

Much of the characterization is done by computer, but the blue characters are believable and you relate to them, sympathize with their plight, and the love between the native blue Princess and the hybrid Avatar is uplifting to watch.

Bounty Killer
BountyKillerphotos-warlordrihannagirlsjamaica.jpgOutAroad.com received a letter of apology from the Alliance yesterday, which stated that Bounty Killer's performance at the Annual Shaggy & Friends went a bit over board.

The incident took place when Mavado who was supposed to make a pledge called up Mr. Cross Angry, Miserable. However, with the introduction of Bounty Killer on stage it denies Shaggy from bringing down the curtains in style due to Bounty Killer's choice of words against homosexuals which calls for the promoters to pull the plug on the concert a head of time.

You can read Bounty Killer's apology below

After nearly 20 years at the top of the Jamaican music industry, I have been involved in many battles - sometimes with fellow artists, sometimes with outside forces and sometimes with the state and its politicians. I've learnt to choose my battles wisely and the grounds upon which to fight them.

Usually not one to bite his tongue, Eminem has agreed to censor his lyrics in order to avoid anti-gay protests in the UK.

Word is promoters for the 2010 Wireless Festival were concerned that gay rights groups like OutRage! may protest the concert due to Slim being on the bill.

According to the Evening Standard, OutRage! said they won't picket the concert if Slim doesn't perform lyrics that inspire hatred against gay people. Per Wireless spokesman, David Allison, Em agreed to the censorship after being guaranteed that there won’t be any protest.

OutRage! has lead boycotts against dance hall artists Beanie Man and Buju Banton in the past. The protests lead to their UK tours being shut down for their use of homophobic lyrics. Em's lyrics have angered gay rights groups in the past. He responded by performing "Stan" with Elton John at the 2001 Grammy Awards.

The 2010 Wireless Festival featuring Eminem is scheduled to take place at London's Hyde Park this coming July.
