Jason Derulo lands in the #Hot100 Top 10 with 'Talk Dirty'

According to Billboard, Jason Derulo lands the Hot 100's lone new top 10 arrival this week, as "Talk Dirty," featuring 2 Chainz, vaults 15-6 with the top Streaming Gainer award. It rockets into the Streaming Songs top 10 (17-8; 3.9 million, up 53%) and blasts 6-2 on Digital Songs with 194,000 downloads sold (up 31%).  In its second week on Radio Songs, it speeds 48-26 (40 million, up 45%).  "Dirty" has been boosted by the buzz of its "Celebrities Talkin' Dirty" trailer video, in which artists including Robin Thicke, Flo Rida and Ariana Grande endorse it, with OneDirection also having posted a clip of the boy band dancing along to it. The song becomes Derulo's fourth Hot 100 top 10 and first since his first three entries all reached the region in 2009-10: "Whatcha Say" (one week at No. 1), "In My Head" (No. 5) and "Ridin' Solo" (No. 9). In between "Solo" and "Dirty," Derulo still managed to notch four top 30 hits, including last year's "The Other Side" (No. 18) and "Marry Me" (No. 26).

Happy 60th Birthday Oprah!  We have had a few amazing brushes with the Queen of all media and Studio Q TV wishes her the very best day ever!  Tam (Studio Q Producer) and I went to one of Oprah's last taping in 2011 at Harpo Studios in Chicago.  We had so much fun and thanks to Tam, I even got to ask Oprah a question.  You can check out the video of me asking a question below. Also check out our Studio Q TV tweet and our Studio Q TV mic on OWN. Also check out what present Ellen Degeneres (video below) got for Oprah.  Oprah has opted for a quiet intimate dinner to celebrate her birthday instead of the huge elaborate party she had originally planned where Obama and Beyonce would attend. She reportedly said that the guest list was getting out of order. However you spend your special day Oprah we hope you feel all the love folks have for you out here. Happy Birthday! 

T.I. and Tiny are not splitting up

According to BET Centric, T.I. and Tiny are not splitting up!  The award-winning rapper, 33, confirmed with TMZ that he is not separating from his wife, singer Tameka 'Tiny' Harris, 38. He did however admit that they had a major---and by all accounts, petty--- fight right before the Grammy Awards.  So what happened? Apparently Tiny wanted to walk the red carpet and watch the show but T.I. didn’t want her to (huh???). He told the website that they “angrily challenged each other on who would end up having more fun that night.” The couple made up the next day.  Really ya’ll?  Rumors circulated the internet that the couple had ended their nearly four-year marriage when the rapper was a no-show to the event, and the two were spotted partying separately in Los Angeles. The couple, who have been in relationship since 2001, tied the knot in 2010.

Sidebar: I'm sure that is NOT the real story. That's why I seldom blog about rumors and relationships. Too hard to keep up with them. I think I will stick with The Hollywood reporter. I'd rather blog about who just got a new show picked up by a network.

J. Cole Kicks Off VH1's Super Bowl Blitz In NYC: [VIDEO]

According to MTV, J. Cole celebrates his 29th birthday today, but the Roc Nation rapper got the party started early, hitting the stage to kick off VH1's Super Bowl Blitz concert series on Monday night.
Cole had a full band and a crew of backup singers ready as he casually strolled onto the stage, holding a red Solo cup and sporting his diamond-studded Jesus piece, with a hoodie on. He didn't even bother to use the mic for the first minute of his performance, while he hyped up the crowd and sang along to "Trouble," from his sophomore album Born Sinner.
The North Carolina rapper will keep the birthday celebration rolling by bringing his "What Dreams May Come Tour" to Madison Square Garden in New York tonight.  VH1's Super Bowl Blitz will feature live music at different venues throughout New York and New Jersey this week, leading up to the Super Bowl on Sunday.

Are T.I. and Tiny Calling It Quits?

According to BET Centric the Hip-Hop it couple are reportedly separated.  FreddyO.com broke the news Monday (Jan. 27) that the hip-hop couple were taking a break after nearly four years of marriage and more than a decade together. While no specific details about the separation have surfaced, it has been reported that the split happened before Sunday's Grammy Awards.
The story goes:
"It was reported that the couple decided to take a break on Saturday shortly before arriving in Los Angeles to attend the 56th Annual Grammy Awards. The alleged explosive break up left TI too distraught to perform at The Grammy’s where he was nominated for three awards . This is serious because you know very little prevent TI from getting his hustle on.
There are tons of rumors circulating on the internet. I know what is going on but I refuse to betray my friends and air their personal affairs on the internet. All I would like to say is that I hope that these two are able to work through their issues. They are currently filming “TI and Tiny The Family Hustle”. They have committed to filming the reality show on VH1 for the next two years. I am unsure if this separation is going to halt the filming of the show."
Tiny's hair stylist and close friend Shekinah Jo Anderson took to Instagram to fight off the rumors, stating, "People stop with the BS [Tiny]and [T.I.] are good!!!! (They are still together) Don't believe everything you hear!!!! Don't believe the hype!!!!" The couple have two sons together, King and Major Harris, and share four children between them from previous relationships. T.I. and Tiny have yet to comment on the matter.

Sidebar: I hope whatever they are going through they can weather the storm and come back together stronger.
