Sitting down with Adina Howard was much more then I imagined. Just by talking with her I could feel how warm hearted, true, and genuine of a person she is. She’s a true gem, and a beautiful person inside and out. I sat down with Adina after her performance in Roanoke, VA where she had the crowd screaming for more. She gave a performance that had everyone on their feet.
First off Adina Prestige would like to thank you for allowing us to interview you after your great performance tonight.
Are you working on any upcoming projects?
Right now my main focus is getting my education. I’m currently enrolled in culinary school, working on my culinary degree but I will be working on getting an album to my babies (fans) because that’s important.
I see you’ve been doing great in culinary school, because I’ve been seeing those A’s and B’s you’ve been posting on Facebook:
Look let me tell you, when I got a B, because my goal was to get all A’s, my goal was to be suma cum lade. When I got my first B, my heart hurt so bad so much so I was ready to cry, but magna cum lade is good, so right now I’m rocking A’s & B’s, and the experience is amazing, it’s absolutely amazing. I’m loving it.
Do you have a favorite dish that you love cooking:
I don’t have a favorite dish but I love international cuisine
Are you thinking of collaborating with any Artist:
Absolutely, I know one artist that is totally under rated that I would love to work with he’s a rapper that goes by the name Tech N9ne, I would also love to work with Tank, there are so many more out there that I would love to work with also, whether it be doing a duet together or working doing some productions or songwriting, the thing is if they would like to work with me, I would love to work with them, but it’s kind of difficult because a lot of times we artist have our egos, and most of us want to work with who’s hot at the time verses saying let’s just go ahead because you’re a great artist and I’m a great artist too. The industry is about selling records, and they want to jump on the band wagon of who’s hot right now, and being that I’m kind of on the back burner and out of site out of mind, but in due season, and if not I’m alright cause I can hold it down on my own.
When you started in the industry was there any artist that inspired you the most:
So many. Prince and Madonna, those are my main two because of their brash forward and mentality of expressing themselves however they choose.
Of all your songs that you have recorded, which one is your favorite:
My favorite I don’t believe is on the album or one of the ones that people focus on. One of my favorites, actually I have four that I enjoy. One of the songs I wrote is called What Do I Do, it has that neo soul type of vibe to it. The other one that I wrote is called Missing You, it has a 50s jazz harmony type vibe. And then there a song on the Private Show album called I Forgive You. And the other song I love is called Too Close
You never said Freak Like Me
No I enjoy performing Freak Like Me for my fans because they love it, and I love to see them happy and getting up out their seats and dancing. That for me moves me when I sing it.

All of us here at Prestige would like to thank Adina for taking time out to speak with us and we would like to say congratulations on her upcoming marriage to Mr. Sherman Jordan.

Johnny Depp splits from girlfriend Polina Glen
Johnny Depp has reportedly split from his girlfriend Polina Glen.
Polina, 24, has ended her relationship with the 56-year-old Hollywood actor and fled back to her Russia after finding the attention surrounding her “scary”, according to friends.
The Pirates of the Caribbean who was previously married to actress Amber Heard and Lori Anne Allison and has children Lily-Rose and Jack, with ex-partner Vanessa Paradis began dating the Russian dancer Polina Glen earlier this year.
However the dancer has ended their relationship and returned to her homeland Russia after becoming overwhelmed by the attention their relationship received.
According to a source, Polina is now keeping her head down in Russia and told Johnny plans to get married were madness.” The source further added that Polina had no interest in Johnny’s stardom or connections. She rather made efforts to ‘keep her head down while living him’ and instead chose to focus on her dance job.
The 24-year-old beauty also felt the actor was too “distracted” by his ongoing legal battle with his ex-wife Amber Heard, whom he sued for defamation for her allegations of domestic abuse against him
MO’NIQUE SUES NETFLIX FOR DISCRIMINATION
Mo’Nique is finally taking her accusations against Netflix for discrimination to a court of law … she’s filed a lawsuit.
In the suit, the Oscar-winning actress and comedian accuses Netflix of race-based discrimination for how it negotiated a comedy special with her. She says Netflix offered Amy Schumer $11 million for an hour-long stand-up special (she eventually got $13 mil), but only offered Mo’Nique $500,000 for her stand-up special.
Mo’Nique never accepted their offer, and went on a public campaign … which included coming on “TMZ Live” and calling for a boycott against the company.
According to the suit, she claims Netflix has a severe lack of diversity, which contributes to their discriminatory practices. Specifically, she claims one Netflix exec. — the Chief Communications Officer — used the n-word in a meeting with 60 people in 2018. Mo’Nique was not present for that meeting.
She also claims Netflix allowed Kevin Spacey to use the n-word while on the set of “House of Cards” without any consequence. In the suit, she alleges Spacey complained to his personal security guards, “I don’t want [n-words] on my set anymore.” She’s not suing Spacey.
Mo’Nique also used a major pay gap on the Netflix hit, “The Crown,” to illustrate alleged discrimination. She says the actress who plays Queen Elizabeth II was paid $14k per episode less than the actor who played Prince Philip — and it only righted the wrong after there was a public outcry about it.
She’s suing Netflix for unspecified damages, and for an injunction forcing the company to change its discriminatory policies.
Beverly Hills Cop’ Sequel With Eddie Murphy Jumps to Netflix in Licensing Deal With Paramount
Netflix has acquired the rights to shoot a new sequel to “Beverly Hills Cop” from Paramount, with star Eddie Murphy and producer Jerry Bruckheimer attached, Viacom CEO Bob Bakish announced Thursday.
The original 1984 action-comedy film, starring Murphy as a quick-witted, trash-talking Detroit cop who investigates his friend’s murder in Beverly Hills, was a huge hit for the studio — and spawned sequels in 1987 and 1994. The three films grossed $736 million worldwide.
Paramount had been developing “Beverly Hills Cop 4” for years — but pulled the project from its release slate in 2016.
In recent years, the studio has made deals with Netflix for completed films, selling “Cloverfield: God Particle” to the streamer for an early 2018 release and offloading overseas rights to the Natalie Portman sci-fi film “Annihilation” after a 17-day U.S. theatrical window. But it’s an unusual move for a studio to license its own IP for an unfinished film.
In recent months, Paramount parent company Viacom has shown an increasing willingness to make revenue-generating deals on its library of content rather than hoard those rights for its own internal streaming services as rivals like Disney, Comcast’s NBCUniversal and WarnerMedia have done.
This week, Viacom’s Nickelodeon announced a multiyear output deal for films and TV series with Netflix. And last month, the company sold the exclusive streaming rights to Comedy Central’s “South Park” to WarnerMedia’s HBO Max in a deal worth at least $500 million.
The “Beverly Hills Cop” deal also comes as Netflix has helped to revive Murphy’s career with its new release “Dolemite Is My Name,” which has generated awards season chatter. The star is also shooting the sequel to another Paramount comedy hit, 1988’s “Coming to America,” that’s due for theatrical release next year.
