R&B star reveals secret marriage to producer

February 6, 2002 12:00 AM ET

Twenty-three-year-old R&B sensation and television star Brandy has announced that she was married this past summer to producer and songwriter Robert Smith.

"I've fallen in love with a very warm, gentle, understanding and focused person," Brandy said in a recent statement. "This summer we married quietly. A new experience, a new day for me -- I couldn't be happier!"

On March 5th, Brandy will release Full Moon -- her first album since 1998's Never Say Never, which yielded the mega hit "The Boy is Mine," a duet with fellow teen star Monica.

The video for the album's first single, "What About Us?," is available on www.foreverbrandy.com. Brandy is currently making the publicity rounds in Europe, but she will return to the states near the album's release for a slew of TV appearances.

The Pack | 2006

Berkeley, California rappers the Pack made their footwear choice clear in 2006 with the song "Vans." The track caught the attention of Too $hort, who signed them to his imprint. MTV refused to play the video for the song, though, claiming it was essentially a commercial for the product. Rapper Lil' B disagreed. "I didn’t know nobody [at] Vans," he said. "I was just a rapper who wore Vans." Even without MTV's support, Lil' B recognized the impact of the track. "God blessed me with such a revolutionary song… People around my age know who really started a lot of the dressing people are into now."
