Gotta love La La!

La La Anthony has it all, and in the latest issue of JET, the actress, entrepreneur, wife and mother gives the inside scoop on balancing her full-court lifestyle. She currently boasts a top-selling book– The Love Playbook: Rules for Love, Sex and Happiness, the clothing line 5th & Mercer, and her reality television show, La La’s Full Court Life.

“I have an independent hustler’s spirit,” says Anthony about her many ventures. “That drives me to this day. I never want to ask anyone for anything.” Anthony sat down with JET magazine to reveal on how she maintains it all. Some of her tips include:

1. Never Stop Doing You – “The difference with me is that when I first got to know my husband I was already hosting MTV’s Total Request Live, so I came with a full career,” she says.

2. Accept That Having It All Will Require Blood, Sweat and Stilettos – When asked about balancing a family, career and friendships, Anthony responded saying, “It’s tough. I always say that people who think it isn’t aren’t being honest.”

3. Sex May Sell, But Love Keeps You Off the Market – “If you don’t try to spice it up and keep it sexy, anyone can get bored but the key is really taking time with each other,” advises Anthony.

With Mother’s Day approaching, some of Hollywood’s hottest moms — Brandy Norwood, Nicole Ari Parker and Kyla Pratt for example — share with JET their most embarrassing, yet funny, mommy moments. Tinseltown’s sexiest actors, such as Hosea Chanchez, Lance Gross and Laz Alonso, also reveal their most cherished times with their mothers. For those of you looking for something special for their loved one this Mother’s Day, JET magazine’s just-for-mom gift guide has the perfect find.

Also inside the annual Women’s Issue, readers can learn more about Lean In, the organization that encourages women to pursue their professional goals, and learn about the controversy surrounding its Ban Bossy campaign from sole African-American board of directors member, Kim Keating. On a lighter note, actress and comedienne Whoopi Goldberg gets candid with JET about her new Lifetime TV movie, A Day Late and a Dollar Short, while actress LaTanya Richardson Jackson dishes on her Broadway role in the current revival of A Raisin in the Sun and what it is like to work with Denzel Washington as she balances being the wife of actor Samuel L. Jackson.

Angela Bassett Says She’s Not Stuck UP And Mean!

angelabassett

Looking stunning as ever, Angela Bassett poses for the cover of December 16th issue of JET magazine as she discusses being a mom, a wife and her new projects.

Currently she is starring in FX’s hit drama, American Horror Story: Coven, and fans can expect to see her on the big screen alongside Forrest Whitaker in the anticipated film Black Nativity, which hits theaters November 27th.

While many are familiar with Bassett’s acting career, she gives readers of JET magazine a taste of her personal life as she discusses her struggles with infertility, disagreements with her husband, and parenting young twins while she and her husband both have thriving acting careers.

Check out the highlights via JET magazine below:

On her children facing racism amongst peers:

“The kids were playing one day, and a blonde, blue-eyed girl said that she didn’t want my daughter to be a part of the family. My son stood up to her and asked the child how would she feel if she was treated like that, and the girl said ‘bad.’ They were only 4 years old at the time.”

On Infertility:

“After trying and trying, I unfortunately couldn’t have my babies. It was my reality. I heard about the surrogate option and it worked out beautifully.”

On her public persona:

“I’m pretty sure that people think that I’m really serious. I know that they think I’m stern as well. People are always surprised that I’m actually fun, and not all stuck-up and mean!”

I’ve always thought of her as serious, but looks can be deceiving. I also didn’t think Naomi Campbell had anger issues.

The December 16th issue of JET magazine is on newsstands now.

Chris Brown Has Some Issues With Jay-Z

Inside the October 14th issue, Chris Brown opens up to JET magazine about his troubled past, personal growth, what it takes to be Chris Brown, his relationships with Rihanna and Karrueche and why he has beef with Jay-Z.

Check out some of the highlights from the interview below:

On his beef with the media

“The media is full of yellow journalism. A lot of things I say, they will flip it. Instead of them getting off on all the positive stuff that I do, they will bring out the negative and draw out that story.”

On his beef with Jay-Z

“No disrespect, because I’m a fan, but nobody brings up the fact that [Jay Z] stabbed somebody and sold drugs. He gets a pass.”

On Trayvon Martin

“I identify with Trayvon 100 percent as far as living in 2013 and still dealing with blatant racism. This generation is so used to racism that it’s normal; we don’t care. We aren’t on drugs or catching AIDS, but they still look at us as ni**as.”

On controlling his anger issues

“You have to go through the struggle before you can get to the good part. I don’t try to lash out at people, or be as mad or impulsive as I used to be. I got to the point where it’s only so much you can take from the master, you feel me? I’ve taken my fair share of lashings.”

On his relationships with Karrueche Tran & Rihanna

“Relationships are the most difficult part. That’s why I was honest with those two girls and I put out that video. My ex and I broke up because of the “situation” and she had moved on. I fell in love with another girl. Then my ex came back, so it was like, ‘What is a man to do?’ I told them both the truth. I didn’t do the sucker role.”
