*With a comment like the one in the headline, you may be asking what the hey-all is Bobby Brown talking about? We’ll let him break it down for ya’, but FIRST …
We guess you could say Xscape is going through changes. We say that because the group has changed or should we say, altered, its name which is now XSCAP3. And we’re like, huh?!
Well, we don’t know what precipitated the change. Well, actually we kinda do. We’re pretty sure has todo with math. Subtraction, to be sure. Another clue is that the group, which now consists of Tameka “Tiny” Cottle, La Tocha Scott and Tamika Scott, has also signed with CAA for worldwide representation in all areas. As you can see there is a name missing. That of course would be Kandi Burruss. See, 4 minus 1 = 3.
Their upcoming album, Here For It, is set for release March 3 and will also not include Kandi. The project will be released via their own label, XSCAP3 Entertainment.
Finally, the group is currently filming a documentary that will trace the group and its members’ origins. Kandi is currently on Broadway and has revealed that she will be performing over the summer with the group.
*Bobby Brown is raising some eyebrows with a comment he made while chatting with Us Weekly about his late daughter, Bobbi Kristina. Brown was lamenting about how she had a great future in music.
“She was a beautiful young lady. And what she wanted to do with her life, I wish everybody could have seen,” the musician, 49, said of the late daughter he shared with ex-wife Whitney Houston. “Music, entertainment. She was better than me. She was better than her mother.”
Bobby has launched a nonprofit in her memory.
“When you are going through bad times and you are going through being abused, Bobbi Kristina’s Serenity House is there for you. That’s the easiest way I can say it. It’s too much. Too many women and too many men are being hurt by this disease that people have, abusing people. It’s just not right. I need to do something about it.”
Bobby will host the Celebration of Serenity Gala on Sunday, March 4, on what would have been Bobbi Kristina’s 25th birthday. Attendees will raise funds for the Bobby Kristina Serenity House, a nonprofit he created to raise awareness about domestic violence and provide aid to victims.
The Grammy winner hopes that the nonprofit will bring comfort and relief to young men and women who went through similar experiences as his daughter.
“I just think people should be aware that they have some place to go. When you are going through bad times and you are going through being abused, Bobbi Kristina’s Serenity House is there for you,” he told Us. “That’s the easiest way I can say it. It’s too much. Too many women and too many men are being hurt by this disease that people have, abusing people. It’s just not right. I need to do something about it.”
