Check Out Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s Official Wedding Photos!

The Internet has been going crazy about Kim Kardashian and Kanye West‘s wedding this weekend in Florence, Italy! E! News, of course, got the exclusive pictures of the newlyweds at their incredible wedding.

Kim wore a Givenchy lace gown and a long silk veil during the ceremony, while ‘Ye rocked a custom Givenchy tuxedo. They gave traditional vows during the ceremony, which was officiated by a good friend and pastor from Miami at the Forte di Belvedere.

After the wedding, the couple hosted a reception for close family and friends, which included a four-course meal and 7-tiered wedding cake. Kim changed into a short, cream-colored, custom Balmain dress, and Kanye dedicated a LONG 20 minute speech to his bride (which is no surprise, because Kanye can TALK).

Kris Jenner and Bruce Jenner also gave speeches at the reception.  John Legend sang for the newlyweds and the audience with his hit song, “All of Me,” for the couple’s first dance.

The new season of Keeping Up With the Kardashians, which premieres Sunday, June 8 on E!,  will showcase the couple’s plans up to the wedding and more photos and behind the scenes looks!

Check out some of the official wedding photos below!

I honestly do wish Kim and Kanye the best of luck in their marriage. For Kim, this is her THIRD marriage, and it’s gotten to the point where I feel like something has to work out for this girl! Hopefully, third time is the charm. However, she and Kanye seem really happy, and they are raising their daughter, North, together as one big  happy family. Congratulations and best wishes to Kimye!

Taraji P. Henson truly shines in her pictorial with VOGUE Italia! The actress opened up to the magazine about her time at Howard University, her most challenging role so far, and what changes she would like to see in the industry.

Check out some highlights of the interview below!

What is the most challenging aspect of being an actress?

The most challenging aspect of being an actress is being a single mother while navigating my career. I am a mother first.

What is the most rewarding part of being an actress?

The most rewarding part of being an actress is having my performance touch or inspire my audience.

What has been your most challenging role to date and why?

The most challenging role was that of Queenie in The Curious case of Benjamin Button because of the challenges of the aging process. My Mom Bernice and my Grandmother Patsy were my inspirations.

Who were the most instrumental people in your career?

The most instrumental people in my career are my business team that supports me. That starts with my long-term manager Vincent Cirrincione. You need to know the people in your life are looking out for you and have your very best interests at heart.

What did you study at Howard University?

I am a proud graduate of Howard University where I majored in Theatre Arts.

Where did you study acting?

I was fortunate to have incredible teachers and mentors at Howard and I wouldn’t trade those experiences for anything. That training prepared me well for the journey ahead.

How was it working with Idris Elba?

Working with Idris Elba is so terrible because he’s so hard to look at !!! Idris is a wonderful human being. We have great chemistry and have become the closest of pals. He flew from London to see my play in Los Angeles. We truly support each other and I’m so excited about our movie coming out in September No Good Deed.

What changes have you seen for actresses of color in the industry over the past 5-10 years?

In the last 10 years I have seen more opportunities for actresses of color but there is still a long way to go.

What changes would you like to see?

I would like to see films that mimic my everyday life and those of my friends. I would like casting to reflect all of the nationalities and all of the colors that make up our lives.

What does your beauty regime look like?

It’s important to keep my hair healthy and strong so I wrap it every night. I give my face a rest from make-up when I can. I make sure I wash my face every night before bed and moisturize, moisturize, moisturize.

Who are your style icons?

My style icons are Diana Ross, Cher and Cate Blanchett.

Taraji looks absolutely amazing in this pictorial!

The Voice Contestant Releasing New Music!

terry-mcdermott

OH em gee! FINALLY, somebody from The Voice is releasing music that doesn’t totally suck!

Singer, songwriter, musician TERRY McDERMOTT has released “Pictures,” the first single off his forthcoming EP due out later this summer and first since placing second on NBC’s “The Voice” last season.

The creation process for “Pictures” was fast as was its rise up the iTunes Rock Singles chart. Less than a week after it was written, much less recorded and mastered, it hit #1. In addition, the official music video for “Pictures” has been viewed over 41,000 times. The #1 track will be included the 5-song Pictures EP.

Shortly following his successful run on “The Voice,” the New Orleans-based musician flew to Los Angeles to write songs with Todd Burman, a musician with whom he had toured with in the past. On their first day writing together, McDERMOTT and Burman had completed “Pictures” and recorded a rough version. The following day the song was posted to Soundcloud and the response was immediate. Without proper promotion, “Pictures” received 26,000 hits on the first day it was posted.

“Todd was a big supporter while I was on the show, and the first thing I did when it was over was call him,” TERRY recently shared in an interview with Examiner.com. “We went to his house in Hollywood and sat there with a guitar and solidified everything really quickly. I remember we both had a similar vision of what we wanted the song to be about, but from different angles. I was looking at it more from the point of a lost love or girlfriend, and Todd was looking at it as more of a family member.”

Three weeks after giving birth, Amber Rose has shown the world that she still got it! She flaunted her post-baby curves on Twitter Monday. The mom gave birth to her son, Sebastian “The Bash” Taylor Thomaz, with fiance and rapper Wiz Khalifa.

“Three weeks after giving birth to Sebastian and I feel amazing!” the  model said in a pic she posted on Instagram. The sexy photo showed off her curves in a a beautiful, form-fitting red dress.

Sebastian was born on Feb. 21, and Amber and Wiz have been going gaga about him on Twitter ever since. “Sebastian is so cool!” Rose tweeted a few weeks ago. “He makes us laugh all day. LOL. He’s just 2 weeks old and super silly like me and his dad.” Khalifa also tweeted “Bash is so awesome. He makes the coolest faces and hardly cries.”

The parents are in celebration mode with the birth of their baby boy, but also celebrated a year since their engagement and two years since they first met on March 1!

Amber looks absolutely amazing! She gained weight in all the right places, though she’ll probably lose it soon to get back to her pre-baby weight. Regardless, it’s a beautiful shot! And congrats again to her and Wiz for the birth of their son!

See Pics from Drake’s “Take Care” Video with Rihanna

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Drake and Rihanna sure looked cozy in pics from Drizzy’s newest video for “Take Care.” The stills from the video  were released early this week, and shows the couple all hugged up. The video isn’t much in terms of actual visuals, shot in black and white, with a neutral background. However, Drake says that he wants this video to be the best video he’s ever done.

Last month, the director of the vid, Loanne Lemoine talked about what to expect from the visual.

“Visually, it’s a very humble video … it’s not crazy.  It’s actually the most indie video I’ve done my whole life. It’s probably the most famous artists, and they were so open to a project that was so minimal. There’s a lot of space in the video and I wanted the visuals to pay tribute to that. It pays tribute to nature.

I won’t say too much, but it’s very surprising that there are very few elements in it. It’s very simple but there’s this big sense of emptiness in it. It’s not narrative at all, and it involves animals.”

There’s something very minimal and very delicate [about it] in a way. And it was very symbolic too.”

See the pics from the video below! “Take Care” coming soon!

Beyoncé Releases Pics of Blue Ivy!

Days after making her first public appearance after giving birth, Beyoncé decided to share her joy with fans. She has posted pics of Blue Ivy on her official website and I am literally spazzing right now! Check out beautiful Baby Blue below!

 

Only a month old, Blue is already shattering records, being the youngest to ever be a trending topic on Twitter, and the youngest to be on the Billboard charts (She has a hit with Papa Jay-Z already with “Glory!“)! Funny thing is, she doesn’t even realize it yet!

Beyoncé did say that she and Jay-Z would never sell pics of the baby, and they didn’t. They took the matter into their own hands, and shared the pictures with the world their way. Besides, it’s not like they really need the money. It’s so great as a fan to be able to see these pics!  She’s so precious!
