Miguel (born Miguel Jontel Pimentel; 23.10.1985) Miguel is an American R&B recording artist known for tracks such as 'Adorn' and 'Sure Thing'.
Childhood: Miguel was born in San Pedro, Los Angeles. His father is Mexican and his mother is African-American; they divorced when he was aged 8. He wanted to be a dancer at aged 5 but turned his attention to music when he hit his teens and learnt about production and recording before looking at finding a record contract.
Musical Career: Miguel signed his first production contract with Drop Squad at aged 15. Four years later he was signed by indie label Black Ice through which he began work on his album 'Young & Free'; however, the album never came to fruition and he soon abandoned his deal with the label. He signed with Jive Records in 2007 after Mark Pitts received the song 'Sure Thing' from his manager and later recorded his debut album 'All I Want Is You' but it's release was stalled for two years after he was sued by Black Ice for breaching his contract with them.
He made contributions to work by Usher, Asher Roth and Musiq Soulchild following that and also released his mixtape 'Mischief: The Mixtape'. After poor sales of his debut album, he toured with Trey Songz and Usher and two of his singles from the album 'Quickie' and 'Sure Thing' did well in the charts. Miguel was shifted to RCA Records following Jive Records disbanding and released his second album 'Kaleidoscope Dream' in 2012. It opened at number three in the US Billboard 200 chart and in the first week sold 71,000.

The rap star's second album 'Dreams Worth More Than Money' sold nearly a quarter of a million copies to storm to Number One, selling more than the rest of the Top Five combined.
Rapper Meek Mill has scored his first American Number One album, with his second effort Dreams Worth More Than Money entering at the top of the Billboard 200 in its first week with sales of nearly a quarter of a million over all platforms.
The Philadelphia-born star, real name Robert Rahmeek Williams, sold 246,000 copies of his sophomore effort in the week ending July 5th including 215,000 traditional album sales (i.e. excluding stream and track equivalents). His first album, 2012’s Dreams and Nightmares, peaked at Number 2 as a new entry, and three years later he’s gone one better.

The Second Annual Fashion Media Awards hosted by Daily Front Row at Park Hyatt in New York City on September 5th, 2014 saw a variety of celebrities arriving at the ceremony. Amongst these were music mogul Will.i.am, 'Victoria's Secret' model Alessandra Ambrosio, 'Orange Is The New Black' star Laverne Cox and singer/songwriter Miguel.
Don't try this at home, kids. Don't try it anywhere at all.
George Watsky’s 30ft stage dive was pretty inexcusable, but it probably felt fine at the time. But there are very few things that feel fine at the time that are actually alright, like swearing, ducking ordering a dessert and buying a scarf.
A 30ft stage dive – again – is not cool. He didn’t really hurt himself; he suffered a few bad bruises, a cut or two and some damaged pride, but it was the girl with the broken arm leaving the worst off, while another man was hospitalised.
“It was stupid and wildly irresponsible, plain and simple,” said Watsky. “I have no excuse for my actions, and the only way I can explain my mindset is that it was a huge overreach in the heat of the moment.”
Who's suing who? Sometimes we get confused
It appears as though there’s some tender beef cooking between Future and Drake. The former is apparently suing the Canadian rapper for kicking him off the 39-gig tour they were supposed to perform together, alongside Miguel.
Drake booted Future from the tour because of his disparaging comments about his new album, Never Was The Same. Associate editor Erika Ramirez published a story on Billboard including quotes from Future, which she also posted on her Twitter feed.
“Not only is future’s #honest album interesting, so are his thoughts on Drake’s #NWTS album,” Ramirez wrote. She then went on to quote Future: “‘Drake made an album that is full of hits but it doesn’t grab you. They’re not possessive; they don’t make you feel the way I do’ — Future.”

Stars from all around the world made it to New York for the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week with several well-known faces appearing on the front row of the Y-3 Spring/Summer 2014 fashion show.
The Spring/Summer 2014 Vera Wang show at the Mercedes-Benz New York Fashion Week reined in several big stars among the audience. 'Scandal' star Kerry Washington poses for the camera in a stunning white gown, soon followed by singer Miguel in a casual shirt and jeans get-up.
The singer can't stop talking about how special her new album is: wait 'til you hear who she collaborated with.
Singer Janelle Monáe has dropped her sophomore album, Electric Lady, following on from 2010's debut The ArchAndroid. The 27 year-old, who has become famous for her distinctive glamorous tuxedo style, has carved out a musical niche, widely described as a cross between funkadelic soul and futuristic R&B: a rather unique sound that is no less evident and enthralling on her latest record.
Janelle Inspired Herself With Her Latest Album.
In response to the question "Who are the electric ladies in your life?" in an interview with NPR, Monáe explained that "Electric Ladies cannot be marginalised.[they are] community oriented." Similarly, speaking to MTV News, Janelle spoke of the album's themes and direction: "This album isn't to be marginalized. It is of hope, of inspiration and of love," she said adding, "It is to encourage a million electric ladies to build and come into existence, and 'electric lady' does not have a particular skin colour or hair texture but our communality is community and wanting to nurture the community and knowing that we have to be the change."

This year's festival season may have seen its disasters, but Made In America closed the summer of 2013 with a bang!
The Budweiser Made in America Festival 2013 was jampacked with highlights from some of the most iconic artists of the age, as well as some of the best up-and-coming stars and the hidden talent you'd be a fool to have missed.
Taking place over August 31st and September 1st in Philadelphia, the Saturday kicked things off with some impressive acts. Feisty California sisters Haim performed early on in the afternoon with a thoroughly entertaining set, in terms of both music and audience interaction, on the Liberty Stage where other must-see artists such as Deadmau5, 2 Chainz and triple BRIT winning Emeli Sande also thrilled the crowd. The Freedom Stage saw the likes of Rudimental further establish their place in the hearts of a large proportion of festival goers, while the Skate Park Stage saw much smaller bands such as Ohio group Cloud Nothings and New Jersey D&B duo Brick & Mortar get the ultimate chance to showcase their talents. The main Rocky Stage was, of course, the real crowd bringer, with Beyonce headlining and Phoenix and Imagine Dragons delivering the uttermost electrifying rock shows of the night.
The burgeoning bad boy will be in court in September.
Miguel is forging quite the reputation as a music bad boy, but he’ll have to wrestle that mantle off Chris Brown if he really wants wear it with pride. He’s kicked a girl in the face while performing an ill-advised stage jump, now he’s necking suds and getting behind the wheel.
Miguel looks all nice and innocent here, but he's got 'a side'
MTV confirmed news, but to be fair, they didn’t specify the tipple he was sipping before driving, so suds is probably quite inaccurate. It’s just a fun word to write. Here are the facts though:
