Porcelain Black checked in with her Twitter followers (@PorcelainBlack) moments ago, warning her devotees that her real name Alaina Beaton is a no-go in conversation. The 26-year-old, who is set to release her debut album ‘Black Rainbow’ later this year on Virgin Records, writes:
When people I don’t know try and call me “Alaina” n act like we know each other and talk sh**. Who are you again?? Drawing a blank… Middle fingers up
You’re not “cool” by calling me Alaina. My mom don’t call me that sh**. Not even my HUSBAND. Pftttttt lollll
Black is also selling some of her clothing to fans at etsy.com, writing about her duds:
Dear everyone who bought my vintage clothes off My etsy n eBay store…YES I autographed everything for y’all. XO<3 I HAVE worn it... I've worn EVERYTHING I'm selling. It's all my personal wardrobe. Time for new clothes ya Hurd !!
Porcelain Black checked in with her Twitter followers on Tuesday (April 10), indicating that she’s growing impatient with her record labels to release her debut album on Virgin, 2101 and Universal Republic. The first single ‘This Is What Rock n’ Roll Looks Like’, and the second release ‘Naughty Naughty’ failed to chart on the Hot 100, so the 26-year-old may need to produce at least a mild hit to get the labels to take that final step of releasing an album. Black write:
Everyone bug the sh** out of @RedOne_Official @2101Records and @republicrecords n tell them TO PUT OUT MY RECORD NOW! #hurrythefu**up
Seriously. Bug them NON STOP till they put this sh** out. I’m out for BLOOD. Let’s DO THIS.
Porcelain Black is out with the final webisode from on the road during her recent tour with Lil Wayne. The video follows the hard partying, hard working pop singer as the tour crosses the tightly patrolled Arizona border, and features interviews with Porcelain, her band, and R&B singer Lloyd.
“I feel like she’s doing great,” Black’s bassist Nils Blue said. “Everyone’s pulling their weight. Everyone’s together and it feels like a family.”

Porcelain Black has just unveiled the latest webisode from on the road. The third installment of the series follows the edgy Detroit singer across Pennsylvania and Western New York while on tour with Lil Wayne. “It was cool to be able to go to a rest stop and talk to some random dude and see what his story is,” says Porcelain on travelling through America. Previous webisodes documented stops in New York City and Pittsburgh.
Porcelain Black is out with a new webisode from the Pittsburgh stop of Lil Wayne’s I Am Music Tour last summer. The tour, which made stops in cities across the US, also included acts like Nicki Minaj, Travis Barker, and Rick Ross. The video features clips from the show and also gives fans a glimpse of the behind-the-scenes antics of Porcelain and her posse. “It was crazy, it was a good time, we did all the cities in the U.S.,” Black said about the Weezy trek.
A set of Porcelain remixes are slated to be released on iTunes on February 21st, including Dutch house DJ R3hab’s remix of Porcelain’s single, ‘Naughty Naughty’.
Dutch house DJ R3hab has taken the opportunity to put his own spin on Porcelain Black’s latest single ‘Naughty Naughty’, which climbed the Billboard Dance/Club chart this week to #13. R3hab’s ‘Pacha NYC 6AM’ mix takes Porcelain’s naughty, heavy club track and cranks the volume to high.
R3hab, who has provided remixes for the likes of Lady Gaga, Katy Perry, LMFAO, and Rihanna, often gets spins by DJs as notable as David Guetta, Tiesto, and Swedish House Mafia. His ‘Naughty Naughty’ remix is streaming now on his official Soundcloud. Listen below.
Check out Porcelain Black taking her “we just want to party” attitude to New York City. The webisode features Porcelain and her entourage partying it up in the hotel and in the club while in New York for a performance at F*Word @ Splash.
Porcelain Black paid a visit to Clevver TV this week for an interview about her year has went and what’s to come. In the clip, Porcelain discussed her collaboration with Lil Wayne on her track ‘This is What Rock N Roll Looks Like’, the new single ‘Naughty Naughty’, her role in upcoming film Rock of Ages with Russell Brand and Tom Cruise, and what to expect from her debut album. “The album’s all over the place, we talk about so many different things, so I can’t say, ‘Oh, it’s gonna be a party record or it’s gonna be this kind of record. Every song I write has a different message,” Porcelain said about the LP.
Porcelain is wrapping up 2011 with a surprising highlight, having the aforementioned Lil Wayne collab featured on a new episode of ‘Beavis and Butt-Head’ (look for the video and the cartoon duo’s commentary at the 8 minute mark below). “I was OBSESSED with them when I was growing up,” tweeted Porcelain, “MTV ROCKS!”

Hailing from Detroit, Porcelain Black fuses her hard hitting rock roots with the pulsating beats of 2101 label head and producer RedOne, creating a sound she likens to the would-be offspring of Marilyn Manson and Britney Spears.
