If you were riveted to the last three seasons of "Making of the Band" on MTV, well, guess what? Diddy’s back along with Danity Kane, Donnie and the male band he put together in the first season of "Making of the Band 4." For the second season, all three acts will be living together in Miami, working on their respective projects all at the same time. There’s sure to be drama in the coed house and more hijinks with the groups and Diddy. The second season of "Making of the Band 4" premieres on January 28th at 10 p.m. You can see the trailer at www.concreteloop.com.

As part of the ongoing unfair wages strike, the Writers Guild of America is lobbying for Queen Latifah, 50 Cent and Justin Timberlake – among others in the music community who hold Screen Actors Guild cards – to boycott this year’s Grammy Awards. The potential act of solidarity may lead to the cancellation of the awards show, scheduled to celebrate its 50th ceremony Feb. 10. In order to receive a script for the show, the Grammys would have to submit for a waiver from the union. “The [National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences] has not asked the WGA for a waiver or interim agreement for the Grammys,” Gregg Mitchell, a spokesman for the WGA told AdAge.com. “While no Guild decision has yet been made regarding the Grammys, if a waiver is requested for the Grammys, it is unlikely to be granted.” This weekend, Golden Globe winners were announced in a news conference style show instead of an awards format because of the strike, now in its twelfth week.
The Negro Leagues Baseball Museum (NLBM) solicited rap group Bone Thugs-n-Harmony for a compilation CD about black baseball. According to MLB.com, the music will raise money for the museum and potentially give rise to younger fans, filling the apparent generational gap of baseball lovers. “These young men did an outstanding job of interpreting the Negro League experience and embracing it and appreciating what that experience was about,” Bob Kendrick, NLBM Marketing Director, told MLB.com. “They got a real understanding of what the struggles were, but also how talented these athletes were, as well.” The song, “The Negro Leagues Anthem” is the first to be completed for the as-yet-untitled CD slated for a summer release.
