BABY PARTY: Ciara is Pregnant!

ciara

Ermergerd! Ciara is pregnant! Squeeee! Body Partayyyyy!!!! I’m guessing she’s been busy having body parties (obviously) because today she stopped by The View and announced that she is expecting her first child with her new fiance Future!

We just recently found out that Ciara and her man were going to tie the knot, with their big engagement announcement in October AND that 15 carat ring on her finger, but now I am wondering…was this engagement because these two are expecting their first child together?

Well hopefully they are going to get married because they want to get married and not because of the fact that there is a bun in the oven. We are only looking out for your Ci!

Barbara Walters tried prying the pregnancy information out of Ciara this morning and the singer was not shy to confirm. She confirmed with a big fat yes and stood up to show off her baby bump. Adorable!

Now we’ve been hearing rumors for awhile now that Cici and her man were possibly expecting and then when she got that big fat ring on her finger…the wheels in my head started turning.

Congrats to Ciara and Future!

Shakira and Rihanna Release Duet “Can’t Remember To Forget You”!

Shakira and Rihanna have released their brand new collaboration. Yeah in case you didn’t know they were going to work together, SURPRISE!

The duo teamed up for the new single “Can’t Remember To Forget You” and this track is the FIRST song coming off of Shakira’s upcoming album.

Apparently the ladies have recorded a music video for the song and we’ll get to see it in the coming weeks…that is, IF someone doesn’t leak it before they want it to.

About her collaboration with Rihanna, Shakira told Glamour magazine, “[W]orking with her was utopia. She’s the sexiest woman on the planet. And at the end of the day, we’re both just basically Caribbean girls. The chemistry was so good and so real. She taught me dance moves. She was a sweet teacher.”

For all you hardcore fans, “Can’t Remember To Forget You” is available for you all to download in the US and UK right now. GO!!!!

Shakira’s new album is expected to be released later this year so you’ll have to wait a hot minute for that.

What do you think of Rihanna and Shakira teaming up together finally?

Jay-Z Lets Twelve Year Old Rap On His Stage

jay-z

It was the one of the cutest moments of Jay-Z’s performing career. A little man out in the audience of Jay’s Greensboro, North Carolina concert held up a sign that said, “Can I rap for you?”

Well, let’s just say Jay made this 12 year old boy’s dreams come true by inviting him up to the stage to rap for the crowd.

When Jay invited the kid up, the crowd went absolutely INSANELY wild.

The little guy was clearly nervous (I mean, who wouldn’t be?!!!), but he quickly overcame his nerves and delivered a verse from “Clique”.

The kid definitely won over the stadium full of people and even Jay-Z!

It was one of those moments that you can bet that kid will never forget. Check out the video below.

Kanye West Thinks Coinye West Creators Are Gold Diggers

coinye-west-300x168

Welp, people are trying to make money off of Kanye West’s name and he’s furious. The thing is that this particular idea is kind of cute and West is probably just ticked off that HE didn’t think of it himself.

West and his attorney Bard Rose filed those nasty cease and desist papers against the creators of Coinye West. Yes, COINYE West, a new form of currency that the coders are saying started out as a “joke”. Well, the joke got a bit bigger than they thought. And even though West and his team threw over the big shut down, the launch of Coinye West already happened AND became an internet sensation on both Facebook and Twitter.

Unfortunately when it comes to trademark infringement, there’s nothing funny about it!

Not only is West’s face used for the currency, but the name itself being a pun on his name is making a huge case for West.

West’s attorney Brad Rose is coming for the seven anonymous coders of the currency saying, “Given Mr. West’s wide-ranging entrepreneurial accomplishments, consumers are likely to mistakenly believe that Mr. West is the source of your services. Notify the cryptocurrency community at large of your infringing actions and pursue all legal remedies against any business that accepts the purported COINYE WEST currency.”

Now those certainly sound like fighting words but from what I gather, the coders are just kind of thrilled they are getting attention.

One of the coders wrote, “We said Coinye West and we were like, ‘Holy… we gotta make that.’ We want to release this to the public before the man can try to crush it. They’ll still come after us, but that’s OK.”

Again, I think Kanye is just ticked that he didn’t think of this idea.

Check out their official site here.

Ludacris Baby Mama Tamika Fuller Is FURIOUS!

tamikafuller

Yes, Ludacris’ baby mama Tamika Fuller is a tad ticked off! Ok wait, did you NOT know that Luda had a baby mama. Well, now you do!

Hip hop website Baller Alert did a little digging and found some photos of Ms. Fuller who gave birth to what would now be Luda’s latest child, Cai Bridges on December 9th. Apparently Fuller and Ludacris have known each other back since when they attended Benjamin E. Banneker High School in College Park, Georgia together. So this wasn’t just some one stand stand hooker or stripper night gone wild. This was long lost love lust sans birth control!

So here’s the deal, apparently Luda is willing to pay the child support needed to take care of this kid BUT…he doesn’t want Tamika to get an astronomical amount of his cash monthly. Luda is trying to get a DNA test and then lock in child support at around $1,000 a month.

But Fuller is having none of it. She knows as well as we do that Luda makes big bucks. Cripes, the guy spends $7,000 a month on lawn care! The guy is worth MILLIONS!

While we all know it is expensive to take care of a kid, I don’t feel as if the woman needs $10,000 some dollars a month to care for Luda’s child. But…the guy makes millions. So what do you think he should be paying for his baby mama Tamika Fuller?

Did Beyoncé Diss Kelly In Unearthed Interview? (VIDEO)

beyonce

There is a video that has surfaced of the old Destiny’s Child and it is a very interesting one. It is just a six second clip but the clip sure says a lot!

In the clip you can see the members of Destiny’s child in an interview with Kelly Rowland (and her pretty amazing haircut) introducing herself as the second lead singer.

As Beyonce enters a brief coughing fit you can see her roll her eyes. So was this just a REAL coughing fit that ended with an eyeroll or was this big fat shade thrown Kelly’s way via Bey?

I’m guessing that these girls definitely had their up’s and down’s as far as a relationship goes and I’m sure Kelly was/is a tad jealous of Bey’s successful solo career of world domination (heck, I’m even jealous so I can only imagine how Kelly must have felt at one point). You can’t tell me there isn’t at least a small, itty bitty piece of envy there in Kel’s heart!

At any rate, you need to see the video for yourself. After watching, sound off in the comments section below.

Rihanna Topless in New MAC Cosmetics Viva Glam 2014 Ad

rihanna

Rihanna has gone topless once again (and we are totally okay with that) and this time it is for the 2014 MAC Cosmetics Viva Glam campaign.

Rihanna tweeted the following message, “Here’s my new AD Campaign with @MACcosmetics for #VIVAGLAM !!! Coming soon to MACcosmetics.com #staytuned” #VIVAGLAM #MACgirlz”

What do you think of the new ad? I definitely think Ri looks amazing. But doesn’t she always?

Jennifer Lopez Films Same Girl Video In Old Stomping Grounds

jennifer-lopez

Jennifer Lopez is getting back in the music game and back in her hood with “Same Girl”. This song is totally a throw back to her Jenny from the Block hit.

The now again American Idol judge threw on her New York Yanks cap and an old pair of Apple Bottoms to film a music video in the Bronx in her same old neighborhood.

jennifer-lopez1

The following was posted via Twitter by someone who had supposedly worked with Lopez on the video: “New Video #SAMEGIRL from @JLo on the premiere of @AmericanIdol January 16 2014.”

The video was directed by Steven Gomillion and Dennis Leupold, who both have previously worked with Lopez on some of her other projects. And another fun fact for you all…

Same Girl is said to have been written by Lopez in collaboration with Chris Brown and Cory Rooney.

Ice Cube and Kevin Hart Talk Ride Along With Jet

icecube

You know that Ice Cube and Kevin Hart are going to make an amazing pair of the big screen. And they have a movie coming out that you are going to want to check out if you are a fan of either of these guys.

As actors Ice Cube and Kevin Hart prepare for the release of their film, Ride Along, the two sat down with JET magazine to discuss making the film, mixing business and entertainment, and building their legacies in Hollywood.

Cube, who has established himself as a hip-hop artist, record producer, actor, screenwriter, film producer, and director, not only stars in the action-comedy, but is also one of its producers. Ice Cube is all about the big screen now.

“From 48 Hours to Lethal Weapon to Bad Boys, I wanted Ride Along to have the same kind of feel as those movies,” said Cube responding to what movie-goers can expect from the film.

Hart, who has established himself as a mainstream comedian and actor, is anticipated to deliver the same “belly-busting” humor fans expect, if not more. However, while known for jokes and laughter, Hart is serious about his craft and discusses in detail the sacrifices made during his climb to stardom.

“I took a gamble when I quit my job, which meant putting my all into stand-up comedy,” said Hart. “When you don’t have a backup plan, you work as hard as you can because you know there cannot be a negative outcome, only positivity. When you let go of other things, you help yourself to evolve into great things.”

You can check out the article in its entirety and more in the January 27th issue of JET magazine, on newsstands January 6th AND Ride Along hits movie theaters on January 17th.

Will you be checking out Ride Along in the theaters?

Beyonce’s Last Supper Controversy!

lastsupper

Beyonce was feeling inspired the other day, so much so that she decided to post this photo of herself on Instagram posing in a bright green skirt and light pink bustier. She was sitting on a countertop looking off to the side in the middle of a group of people at a table. It appears (at least to me anyways) that Bey is imitating Leonardo DaVinci’s famous painting of The Last Supper. You know, the one that features Jesus and his disciples gathered around a table breaking bread. The only thing is that you cannot see Jesus in this photo as Beyonce is blocking him.

While Bey did NOT write a caption with the photo, many people are making their own assumptions about the photograph. Is she mimicking the purpose behind the photo? Does she think she is like Kanye and another form of the messiah? Instead of Yeezus, should we all call her Beyzus?

All I have to say is that critics are having a hey-day. Is her head really getting to where she thinks she is holier than thou? Or was this photo taken JUST to spark controversy?

Sound off in the comments section below.

I think it will be interesting to see if Beyonce has anything to say about this photo or if she will let it slide under the wayside.

SHE’S ENGAGED: Eve’s Husband Will Soon Be Maximillion Cooper!

eve

Um, who???!!! Rapper Eve has found love with British designer and Gumball 3000 founder Maximillion Cooper.

E! News exclusively confirms that Cooper popped the question on Christmas Day. So if you saw a big fat bling on THAT finger? Yep, you are right! THAT big rock is in fact a diamond engagement ring.

Let me just say that I haven’t heard about Eve in a hot minute and have been wondering what the heck she’s been up to. Apparently she’s been falling in love with a British man.

According to E!,

Cooper was born in Staffordshire, England and he and Eve have been splitting their time between the U.S. and London. This will be the first trip down the aisle for Eve. Cooper, who has been dating the former Ruff Ryders rapper since at least 2011, has four children from his previous marriage.

Cooper is also the founder of the international motor rally known as Gumball 3000, in which more than 100 exotic cars are driven around the world, via a different route each year, by way of public streets. This year’s 15th-anniversary rally went from Copenhagen to Monaco.

In other words, Eve is going to be riding around in style.

And wanna talk about style? Well, girlfriend flashed that big ring in a photo via Instagram.

eve1

Eve posted the picture with the following caption, “#familytime!!!! Me and my mom and my lil brother Farrod just got to the English country side. Feel so #blessed to be with my family and sharing my life here. I pray that you bring 2014 in with people you #love. And nothing but #good #energy.”

Bruno Mars Covers Janet Jackson’s That’s The Way Love Goes

Bruno Mars has been busy on tour and from what I hear, the guy has been pretty amazing. But there is one moment that a fan caught on camera that has to be the best moment I’ve seen from Mr. Mars.

Check out Bruno Mars’ cover of Janet Janet’s “That’s The Way Love Goes” below.

Ariana Grande Talks Boys, Best Friends And Barbara Streisand Getting Turnt Up

ariana-grandePhoto Credit: Matt Jones

Vocal powerhouse Ariana Grande is sweet and sexy on the cover of Cosmopolitan’s February issue, on newsstands nationwide January 7th. At only 20 years of age, she shares her amazing success story with the magazine and dishes on best friends, boys, and her unstoppable music career.

Highlights via our friends at Cosmopolitan:

On being a positive role model:

“I think I’m an old soul. What excites younger people doesn’t excite me… I’m kind of a boring, normal girl who likes Harry Potter and to sit in her pajamas and sing. A lot of my friends are partiers, but I’ve never really clicked with that. I like Barbra Streisand, and when was the last time you saw Babs getting, like, turnt up? That’s kind of the road that I, as a lady, would like to go down.”

On her first date with Nathan Sykes, the youngest member of British boy band The Wanted:

“We were going back to his hotel to watch a movie, and he had Ladurée macarons and sunflowers waiting—I love Parisian baked goods, and sunflowers are my favorite flower. He had taken the DVD player out of the bedroom and into the living room, because he said he didn’t want to take me into the bedroom on the first date.”

On making a name for herself in the music industry:

“I never really expected to be taken seriously as an artist, and it’s just been the ultimate, proudest achievement. I’ve dealt with a lot of people not knowing what to expect from me because of my age and my personality. People often mistake my kindness for weakness, and they didn’t expect much from me, because at the end of the day, I’m just a nice Italian girl from Boca.”

You know, I can really appreciate Ariana but I just hope that she is surrounded by good people because I’d hate for her to go down the wrong road. Stay on the straight and narrow, girl!

Beyonce and Jay-Z Dance To Drunk In Love (VIDEO)

beyonce-new-hairstyle_400x295_89

They went from Crazy In Love to Drunk In Love…Jay-Z and Beyonce spent Friday night hanging out at Atlanta’s Club Reign and they were feeling awfully generous.

TMZ is reporting that the couple dished out nearly $100,000 in drinks for the entire VIP section. Perhaps they were a little TOO drunk in love that night?

Jermaine Dupri, Bow Wow, The Dream and Trey Songz joined the duo as they sipped on D’usse and Ace of Spades all night.

You’d think Jay would have been worn out and stayed home after playing to a sold out crowd earlier in the evening, but it seemed as if hanging out at an afterparty was in the cards for the lovebirds.

And well…they do have a lot to celebrate. Beyonce’s new album is going for a third week on top of the Billboard 200 charts, while Jay has a record NINE Grammy nominations for his work this year.

It seemed like a pretty fun evening for Bey and Jay, especially after spotting them dancing to their new duet “Drunk In Love”.

Check out the two doing their thing below.
