Ronald Isley is back.

After spending nearly three years in federal prison for tax evasion, Ron Isley is speaking out about his time behind bars. HipHollywood caught up with the Isley brother who dished on his time away.

“I went in as a King, everybody there treated me like a King. I sang for the guys, I met some of my best friends that are in there,” Ron explained.

“I did shows for them there. I did some of the best shows in my career, I just couldn’t film them. People crying, while singing them songs. I can’t even explain how good it was and how great it was for them, and the appreciation,” the singer shared. “I sang for them at the chapel every week that I was there,” he added.

The singer also dished on what fans can expect from his new album This Song Is For You. “My record is gonna sound like it did … Ain’t no dips and daps … It’s gonna be right on,” the singer explained.

“There’s another song in there that sounds like in ‘Between the Sheets’. There’s a song in there that sounds like the Mr. Biggs thing, and we talk about Mr.Biggs,” Isley shared.

This Song Is For You drops July 16. Be sure to get your copy.

Exclusive: Sorry, Folks, Diddy Did NOT Offer H&M Model A Contract

Published

Last week rumors started circulating that Diddy had offered Liam Mango, the young model featured in the H&M ad a Sean John modeling contract. Unfortunately those reports, as sweet as they sound, aren’t true.

Diddy spoke to reporters backstage before a tapping of his new show The Four  and clarified what really happened.

“I didn’t actually offer a modeling contract to him I told my people to reach out to him so we could use him in the next shoot that we do,” he explained.  “But with that being said, I think that what we’re seeing is just a general insensitivity to how we feel you know. I think that H&M is going to feel the results of that.”

H&M has issued an official apology for featuring Mango on their website in a “Coolest Monkey In The Jungle” hoodie, saying in a statement : “We sincerely apologize for offending people with this image of a printed hooded top. The image has been removed from all online channels and the product will not be for sale in the United States. We believe in diversity and inclusion in all that we do and will be reviewing all our internal policies accordingly to avoid any future issues.”

After photos of the young boy hit the web, folks started speaking out against the retailer calling them racist and insensitive. But one person not feeling that way was Mango’s mother. She posted her thoughts Facebook questioning what all the fuss is about. “I really don’t understand but not coz am choosing not to but because it’s not my way of thinking, sorry.”

She and the boys father Terry Odhiambo have since had a change of heart appearing on ITV on Monday, saying they don’t think that there’s ever an “overreaction when it comes to racism”.

They also said they’ve had to move from their home in Sweden, and haven’t been able to live a normal life since the controversy started.
