While Hov was spotted out in SoHo in NYC this afternoon (above), Barneys has cancelled the holiday kickoff event for the Jay Z Holiday collaboration. Get the deets inside and find out about new music from Justin Bieber/R. Kelly and Chris Brown.  

The fallout from the Barneys discrimination investigation continues as the luxury department store has decided to cancel the “New York Holiday,” event which celebrated the collaboration with Shawn “Jay Z” Carter. The event, originally scheduled for Wednesday, would have raised funds for the Shawn Carter Foundation.

The party won't take place, but both Jay Z and Barneys have decided to continue plans to launch the holiday collection in its stores on Wednesday.

Last Friday, the company posted this statement on Facebook about the discrimination investigations:

"Barneys New York has zero tolerance for any form of discrimination. While all of our investigations have been consistent in finding that no Barneys New York employee was involved in either of the deplorable situations concerning Trayon Christian and Kayla Phillips, an issue exists in our industry, and we intend to be part of the solution. As we have stated all along, if we learn any procedures or practices are not consistent with our zero-tolerance policy, we will immediately take corrective action including terminating those employees responsible."


So they're still maintaining NYPD has psychic abilities and knows when to approach someone on the street who had just left Barneys.

SMH......we wonder if any of this will impact the store's holiday sales....



In new singles....

As part of his #MusicMondays, Justin Bieber has released the track, "PYD", featuring R. Kelly.  Although the song isn't an official single, fans of Justin can catch him singing his official hits when the "BELIEVE" tour rolls through Auckland, New Zealand starting Nov. 23, then moves to Brisbane, Australia on Nov. 26. Meanwhile, R. Kelly's upcoming album “Black Panties” will drop Dec. 10.

While Chris Brown's"X" album is still without a release date (as he focuses on rehab and community service), his fans will be able to experience 5-new songs tomorrow on a mixtape called "X Files".  It drops tomorrow.....
