Everyone is in NYC! And they're hot on the promo trail. Gabrielle Union dishes on ending her "feud" with Jada Pinkett Smith while Michael B. Jordan tries to get out of Tiffany Haddish's bush. Find out what we mean, plus peep flicks of Tracee Ellis Ross out and about inside...
New York City is flooded with celebs in town for the 2018 Met Gala.
Perfect timing for Gabrielle Union since she has a new movie titled Breaking In that's set to hit theaters this Friday, May 11th.
The 45-year-old actress recentlystopped by the "TODAY" show to chat about how empowered she felt playing the role of a kick a** mom who will stop at nothing to protect her children. She also dishes on this barely known "beef" between herself and Hollywood actress Jada Pinkett Smith. They've had this ongoing silent "feud" for 17 years. Wow. Who knew?!
“Jada nor I ever used the word feud, so it just became more of a media creation,” she confessed. "Kind of like back in the day, neither one of us actually knows what originally took place back then.”
So how did the "beef" start? Apparently, they both had people in their camps who were pitting them against one another.
“The people we had around us were like, ‘Well, you know how she feels about you,’ and they were like, ‘Well, you know how she feels about you,’” she recalled. “And then it was like ‘girl bye’ for 17 years. Even though we’re both very outspoken women, both activists, our husbands are friends, I worked with her husband, we both had too much pride and too much insecurities to just say, ‘Hey, did that ever actually happen or was that just a creation of someone who didn’t want to see two women rise together?’”
Peep the clip below:
Glad they were able to let bygones be bygones. Imagine how powerful they'll be together in their activism.
And here's her STUNNING exit from the "TODAY" show studio:
She made her rounds to "The View" and other stops as well looking springtime fab!
The "Being Mary Jane" star changed it up in a blue plaid Lela Rose suit and orange sandels to make her way to the "Watch What Happens Live" studio. Her episode hasn't aired yet and we don't see her name on the current schedule, so she likely pre-taped an episode.
She'll probably pop up in the clubhouse sometime next week for the "tea."
As she continued her rounds, Gabby, who's a super involved stepmom to Dwyane Wade's sons, sat down with the ladies on "The View" to chat about why her message about raising black boys is resonating. Peep the clip above.
Also in the Big Apple...
Michael "BAE" Jordan is still looking like a snack out in these streets. The Black Panther star was spotted leaving "The View" and the "Good Morning America" studios. He's currently promoting his new HBO film, Fahrenheit 451, set to premiere May 19th at 8pm EST.
Before hitting up the Met Gala last night, MJB sat down with Power 105's "The Breakfast Club" where Charlamagne brought up what his homie Tiffany Haddish told him.
Apparently, the Girls Trip star told him she wasn't going to shave her va-jay-jay until she had sex with the CREED star. Lordt. Mike kept his cool with his response, but it doesn't seem like he wants anything to do with that. However, he did say she was dope.
He also talked about making sure Killmonger portrayed the African American point of view in Black Panther, he avoided questions about dating white women, and he dished a bit on Creed 2.
Check it below:
Oh and this interview went down before she started stanning out for him at the Met Gala last night.
He also stopped by "The View" this morning to talk about the fun he had at the Met Gala and Black Panther's success:
Also in the concrete jungle...
Are you cold?
"black-ish" star Tracee Ellis Ross made sure she was warm while making her rounds. She was spotted making moves in front of the Mark Hotel today after attending the Met Gala last night.
The heavenly theme doesn't stop at the Ball we guess.
Over the weekend, the Golden Globe winner got the chance of a lifetime. She interviewed forever First Lady Michelle Obama during the United State of Women Summit in Los Angeles over the weekend. Nice!
In case you missed, see Tracee's sitdown with FLOTUS where Michelle O. talks about her frustration with men failing UP.

After church, it's time to sin. See flicks of celebs, including Rihanna, Cardi B, Offset, Diddy, Mary J. Blige, Zendaya and more on the Met Gala afterparty scene inside...
With this year's theme being all religious and such, celebs changed out of their angelic (and some uncomfortable) numbers for something more reaxed and easier to party in.
Rihanna had a whole moment when she rolled up on the carpet as the Pope of the Heavenly Bodies-themed Met Gala this year. After killing the carpet, she was tapped to host an afterparty at one of her fave NYC spots, Up & Down. And everyone was in the building.
For the bash, the Bajan beauty rocked a light blue shimmering oversized top and matching pants by french designer Nina Ricci. It almost looked like luxury pajamas that only Rih can transform into something hot to wear to a party.
Idris Elba and fiance Sabrina changed clothes and made a mad dash inside the party.
Other attendees included newly engaged 2 Chainz and his fiancee Kesha Ward, Diddy, his girlfriend Cassie, Mary J. Blige, Issa Rae, Gabrielle Union, Michael B. Jordan, Janelle Monae, Lena Waithe, Wiz Khalifa, model Winnie Harlow,Pharrell Williams and his wife Helen, and model Jasmine Sanders:
Well aren't they cute.
Cassie flossed her bod in a cut-out, sequined Paco Rabanne number.
Issa with the fulani braids. Yes!
Come through Gab Union with the thigh action!
Smile, Bae! Michael B. Jordan switched into what is apparently his new fave look, plaid jackets.
Janelle received a camera lesson from the paps.
Show off that bulked bod, Wiz! He hit the stage for a performance.
And we just love everything about Winnie. She slays a good party look.
Cool parents got a chance to party it up, leaving the 3 kiddies behind. Even Pharrell & Helen's casual is fly AF.
At another party...
Pregnant Cardi B and her fiance Offset changed into some Versace threads to party at the label's afterparty inside the Mark Hotel.
Designer Jeremy Scott was still escorting Cardi and his gorgeous creation around.
Migos hit the stage to perform some of their hits. 2 Chainz was on double duty as he also performed at this afterparty as well.
Zendaya made her way to the Versace party, rocking a printed royal blue Versace mini skirt.
Jennifer Lopez and her beau Alex Rodriguez hit Balmain's Met Gala afterparty. Both dressed in the designer, of course.
Everybody looks delicious as all hell.

Michael B. Jordan isn't trying to talk about his love life...at all. Watch him get out of answering what his current relationship status is and his thoughts on his Black Panther character Killmonger's philosophy inside...
Fresh from killing the box office in Black Panther and slaying the at the Met Gala, Michael B. Jordan is back to work. He's currently doing press runs for his upcoming HBO film, Fahrenheit 451. The movie is set to premiere May 19th at 8pm EST.
The Newark, NJ native stopped by Power 105's "The Breakfast Club" to chop it up about everything he has going on post-Black Panther. The radio hosts were joking around with MBJ about being the “sex symbol extraordinaire" and he played coy about it. But, he really is a sex symbol whether he likes it or not.
Just about every single chick we know wants to know if MBJ is single. We still don't really know. He isn't trying to let us in on anything involving his love life. When asked by the hosts about white women being his preference, he made it known that he's into ALL women.
"I like women, period. All women. Everybody's on the table," he explained.
There you have it ladies. Everybody has a chance! Allegedly.
MBJ's Black Panther character Killmonger was a pivotal character in the movie as he was the villain who tried to overthrow T'Challa and take over Wakanda. His "wokeness" - on the relationship & perceptions between Africans and African-Americans - is what drew a lot of people in especially when he said, "Bury me in the ocean with my ancestors that jumped from the ships. Because they knew death was better than bondage."
"You grow up in an oppressed society, a systemic society, you're going to create Killmongers," MBJ said. "I feel like there's some that I agree with and there's some that I don't. He's an extreme version of what I think a lot of people feel today."
Once he nabs a new movie role, the CREED star revealed how he prepares for it. He said he likes to keep a diary to keep a "backstory or subtext to always know where my characters are at." He said he has a boat load of diaries he has written in over the years. Once it's all said and done, he said he might put those diaries to work in some shape or form.
For his upcoming film Fahrenheit 451, he said this was the first movie he has been able to produce. He said he did the movie because he wanted to tell this particular story and he also wanted to get some production credits under his belt for his production company, Outlier Society Productions, which is the first production company to adopt an inclusion rider.
As for his next project, he will be producing and starring in a new Netflix series he recently sold to the streaming platform. It's titled "Raising Deion" and it's about a single mom raising an 8-year-old with super powers, all told from the mom's prospective.
"When you get to that certain part when you're making production deals, as an actor you have to trade yourself off a little bit to get that producer credit and to get the show on the air."
Nice to see MBJ is flourishing both in front and behind the camera.
Would the hottie ever gain an insane amount of weight for a role? He sure would!
"I got to do it soon because the older you get the harder it is to get back into shape," he explained. "I can't wait to play a role where I have to put on a lot of weight. I can just eat, not do nothing, not work out. Right now we're in the middle of shooting CREED 2 and my body is like, 'I am tired.'"
All that hard work he's putting in for CREED 2 is certainly paying off because he's out here looking like a whole damn meal.
See the rest of his interview with "The Breakfast Club" where he talks about how he got into acting, why he doesn't want anything to do with Tiffany Haddish's BUSH, why his parents live with him, all of the details about the young lady who slid in his DM's and more below:
See MBJ in Fahrenheit 451 when it premieres May 19th at 8pm EST on HBO.
We've got a round of candids that include Travis Scott and Kylie Jenner all boo'd up amid paternity test drama. Jaden Smith and his girlfriend Odessa Adlon grab ice cream, Mathew Knowles and his wife Gena Charmaine Avery are living their best lives in Rome and Ameriie is glowing at her all-white baby shower. Also, see Simone Biles and her boo Stacey Ervin and J-Rod inside...
Travis Scott and Kylie Jenner are now making more public outings together, likely to silently respond to the rumors that they had called it quits after welcoming their daughter, Stormi, in February.
The twosome was all wrapped up in love on the carpet at the 2018 Met Gala and they continued their PDA session in the streets of NYC afterwards. The new parents were spotted leaving their hotel as they kicked off an outing together.
The rapper and reality star hit up sneaker shop Stadium Goods to check out some rare & limited edition sneakers. Hmm...maybe they were shopping for some new kicks for Stormi. During their outing, it seems they couldn't keep their hands (and lips) off one another. Check it:
For one of the latest Kardashian-Jenner rumors, folks have been questioning who Stormi's REAL dad is.
Fans have been vocal about Stormi looking like one of Kylie's bodyguards named Chung.
We can't lie, Stormi does have a few similarities. See here.
However, it's not true. A source confirmed to TMZ that Kylie's bodyguard is not Stormi's dad.
Folks just won't let little Stormi's paternity be great. It was previously rumored Kylie's ex-boyfriend Tyga was the father of Stormi, but he deaded those rumors.
As for some grown up love...
Mathew Knowles took his wife Gena Charmaine Avery to Rome for a romantic BAEvay together. The trip also served as a worckcation as Mathew was tapped for a speaking engagement.
The 66-year-old, who divorced his wife of 31 years, Tina Lawson, 7 years ago, was all smiles with his new wife, captioning on Instagram, "My wife and I are having such a great time in Rome, for a speaking engagement."
During their romantic getaway, the couple enjoyed several fancy candle lit dinners together, in which Mathew captioned, “Enjoying the town with my wife."
We're curious if Mathew's new wife has any dealings with the two children he had outside of his marriage to Mama Tina. Just wondering.
As for a new love...
Olympic gold medalist Simone Biles and her man/gymnast Stacey Ervin made were super cute on a recent date night.
Jaden Smith is also basking in new love...
The Skate Kitchen actor and his new girlfriend Odessa Adlon were spotted leaving their hotel before heading out for the afternoon. We noticed Jaden was the carpet at the 2018 Met Gala, however, he didn't bring his girlfriend Odessa.
Odessa enjoyed a cupcake while Jaden made sure he was hydrated with his eco-friendly bottle of water, JUST WATER. He founded the water company with his father Will Smith.
Also serving up coupledom vibes...
Jennifer Lopez, rocking a Balmain blazer, and Alex Rodriguez are still joined at the hip in NYC.
"The Shades of Blue" star and the former MLB player were spotted leaving Dos Caminos restaurant in New York City.
It seems they were trying to duck and dodge the paps as they exited the restaurant out the back door, but they still caught up to them.
The couple ran into New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft and his much-younger girlfriend/actress Ricki Noel Lander,
John Legend, who's about to become a Google Assistant voice, and Chrissy Teigen are still bumping along with baby #2!
The couple and their daughter Luna Stephens, who turned 2 last month, stepped out for a retail run at Barney's NY in Beverly Hills. And as you can see, they were blowing money fast. The model mom carried all the goods while dad carried their precious cargo.
Baby Stephens #2 is expected to make his arrival in June. Chrissy is coming up on the finish line. We wish her a safe pregnancy!
By the way, John and Chrissy did not attend the Met Gala this year, however, Chrissy had some fun with her Met Gala "glam." Check it below:
this year’s #metgala GLAM was #SUPER important to me as I wanted it to really embody the heavenly bodies theme!!! I think we nailed it!! Swipe for for #creds!!! First I shampooed my #hair yesterday with #shampoo then I let it sit for 4 minutes while i #shaved the areas I could see on my #body. Next, I used a #towel to dry my hair from roots to ends!! Then, I used a #rubberband to secure my hair into a pony that i was careful not to pull out all the way! Lastly, I pulled out pieces around my #ears and #neck ! Full tutorial coming up tomorrow !!!!!!!! Like and subscribe!!!!!
It's been a while since we've heard from Teairra Mari, but here's one way to get back on everybody's radar. Deets on that leaked sex tape that just went viral and her hacked Instagram inside...
Singer and former "Love & Hip Hop: Hollywood" star Teairra Mari just got exposed for giving sloppy top, but at least she can be happy that her skills went viral with compliments, unlike Blac Chyna's leaked tape.
This afternoon, T. Mari's Instagram account had pictures and videos of her giving oral sex and her face fully covered in the aftermath. That mug also had some proper lighting, so it seems this was intentionally taped for later (private) viewing.
Folks were super surprised, but immediately knew she had to be hacked. (The video can still be found online.)
"LAHH" stars are typically thirsty as all hell, but T has never been this thirsty to leak a sex tape intentionally.
A little while ago, the former Rocafella singer took back control of her account. She deleted the explicit videos and posted that she's getting the authorities involved. T claimed it was an ex boyfriend who was the culprit, and she's going to get the last laugh from his "revenge porn."
Gotta love the biblical references at times like these.
While someone hacking into your Instagram and blasting your very private intimate videos is nothing to be happy about, she can be happy that she did have a few comedians and rappers come to her defense.
Well, it certainly could have been worse.
The mother of Waffle House victim DeEbony Groves walked across the stage to accept her daughter's college diploma. Her brother graduated too. See the emotional moment her mom accepted her college degree, plus details about Bob Marley's granddaughter Donisha Prendergast involved in some racist Airbnb drama inside...
21-year-old DeEbony Groves was supposed to walk across the stage to receive her college degree for social work from Belmont University in Nashville.
But, that day will never come since her life was cut short when she was gunned down as a terrorist unloaded bullets inside a Nashville Waffle House a few weeks ago. The gunman took the lives of four people, all under the age of 30, including DeEbony's friend Akilah DaSilva.
Over the weekend, DeEbony's mother, Shirl Baker, walked acorss the stage to accept her daughter's diploma on her behlaf. It was bittersweet for Shirl as her son, Di'Angelo, was also graduating. He was supposed to graduate alongside his sister before her life was taken suddenly. He shed tears as he walked across the stage to accept his diploma.
"Almost two weeks ago, our community suffered an unimaginable loss," said Robert Fisher, President of Belmont University. "While our hearts were broken, today we have the chance to celebrate DeEbony's life together."
In DeEbony's honor, Belmont University is renaming a social work scholarship in her name so that her "legacy will live on" through scholarships that will provide "financial support and encouragement to generations of social work majors at Belmont University." Peep a clip below:

The mother of DeEbony Groves, who was among four shot dead at a Nashville-area #WaffleHouse in April, has accepted her daughter’s college diploma during a tearful commencement ceremony. Shirl Baker was accompanied by Groves’ brother, Di’Angelo Groves, who also received his diploma Saturday and wiped away tears when officials at Nashville’s @BelmontU announced a social work scholarship in his sister’s honor, according to local media outlets. Baker received a standing ovation as she walked across the stage in her daughter’s place Saturday. Meanwhile, Belmont President Robert Fisher told the commencement crowd that “while our hearts were broken, today we have the chance to celebrate DeEbony’s life together.” For more on DeEbony’s story, click the link in our bio.

Prayers up for DeEbony's family that they find closure.

Bob Marley's granddaughter and two of her friends were accused of breaking into a home that they were Airbnb guests at.
Someone called the cops on 33-year-old filmmaker Donisha Prendergast, Bob Marley's granddaughter, and her two friends Kells Fyffe-Marshall and Komi-Oluwa Olafimihan as they were packing up to leave their Airbnb in Rialto, California.
A neighbor called the cops on them and made claims that they saw "three black people stealing stuff," according to one of the officers on the scene, as they loaded their car with their luggage. In fact, 7 cop cars showed up to the home after the call. Kells Fyffe-Marshall whipped out her phone and hopped on Facebook Live to show her followers what was going down. She also called the home's owner during the fiasco.
"We were surrounded by 7 cop cars. The officers came out of their cars demanding us to put our hands in the air," Kells Fyffe-Marshall wrote in a Facebook post.“They informed us that there was also a helicopter tracking us. They locked down the neighborhood and had us standing in the street.”
Donisha also posted a video:
Now, they're suing the Rialto Police Department. And rightfully so. The trio sent a notice about the pending lawsuit; however, the Rialto Police Department believe the responding officers acted accordingly. Apparently, those 6 other police cars had nothing better to do.
Dear Airbnb providers, please start informing your neighbors when you'll have guests, especially black guests, so this won't keep happening.

LaLa Anthony and Kim Kardashian West linked up for a fabulous dinner with a few important people. Meanwhile, Serayah and "Black Lightning" star Nafessa Williams go glam at CoverGirl event and Kerry Washington kept it cute in the Bronx. Flicks inside...
Friends, food and fashion!
Last night, LaLa Anthony linked up with her bestie Kim Kardashian West to attend an intimate dinner hoted by by The Business of Fashion to celebrate its latest special print edition 'The Age of Influence' at Peachy's/Chinese Tuxedo in NYC.
The "Power" star was able to catch up with the "Keeping Up With The Kardashians" star who was in town after attending the Met Gala. There's something about a red dress! LaLa slayed in a red plunging neckline Alexandre Vauthier high slit dress accessorising her look with Jennifer Fisher jewels for the event. She pulled her new blonde locs back into a sleek low ponytail for a chic look.
We see you Lil Red.
As she made her rounds at the dinner, the "New Edition Story" starlet stopped for a photo-op with new mom Kylie Jenner and her bestie Jordyn Woods.
She also chopped it up with Group President, The Estee Lauder Companies Inc. Jane Hertzmark Hudis, Founder and CEO, and Executive Group President, The Estee Lauder Companies, Inc. John Demsey while munching on some good eats. Peep that hand tho. Tryna cop a feel. Mmhmm...
Momager Kris Jenner and her boyfriend Corey Gamble were also in the mix. Of course. Y'all know Corey aint missing ISH.
At another event....
The new generation of YBF celebs are taking over!
Serayah rolled up to CoverGirl's event in LA for a sneak peek at their Fall 2018 Makeup line because what girl doesn't want a peek at all the new makeup colors and schemes? The braided up "Empire" star showed off in Baja East's liquid lamé contour one-shouldered top & slit skirt.
While this look isn't our fave on Serayah, she still made it work.
Hey girl, hey!
"Black Lightning" star Nafessa Williams kept it cute in a cropped blazer and a matching mini skirt to show off her stems. She also finished her look off with braids. She styled her hair with a top bun for a flirty look.
When two baddies link up!
Black Panther star Letitia Wright served up a fun look for the party.
Golden goddess Draya took a break from creating new Mint Swim swimsuits to make an appearance.
Back on the east coast...
Kerry Washington made her way back to her hometown of the Bronx for the Bronx Children's Museum Gala. The children's museum is a passion project of her mom's (pictured below) that opened last year to service all of the kiddies in the borough. Before the museum opened, the Bronx was the only borough in New York that didn't have a children's museum.
The "Scandal" starlet turned heads in a flirty mini frock that featured silver snaps embroidered along the waist, arms and across the bottom of her pleated skirt.
"The View" co-host and fellow Bronx native Sunny Hostin came out to support.
The Confirmation star hit the stage to talk about what it was like growing up in the Bronx. Peep a clip of her speech below:
Sandy "Pepa" Denton showed off her new man on social media, and it only took hours for her (and him) to get snatched up by their edges...by his wife! Deets inside, including his x-rated past.
Pepa surely knows how to pick 'em, doesn't she?
The rapper/"Growing Up Hip Hop" star showed off her new boo, Aundre Dean, during Kentucky Derby weekend recently. But when she posted him to social media yesterday, along with a long birthday message for him, they got a slight interruption. From his wife!
Jordyn Taylor, a pregnant teacher and former news personality, had plenty to say about their romantic love exchange. She yanked everybody up by their edges, blasting them for cheating.
When mistresses talk about God... it’s laughable! “Keep being a good dad?” @iamaundre can’t keep his visitations with his son because @darealpepa is parading him around the country. Still, I blame him for this! News check... Good dads pay child support & don’t break in and vandalize their wives apartments. Good dads also don’t stress their pregnant wives out for 15 minutes of fame with a D list “has been” senior citizen celebrity... Still, I release you both in the name of Jesus. God bless u #GUHH #heresyour15minutesoffame. Liar... saying she was your boss. Introducing me to her & asking me if SHE could be our daughter’s god mother! #fatheroftheyear
It's unclear, though, if the two started their thing before Jordyn & Aundre split since Jordyn mentions child support payments for their young son. The two were just all smiles on Instagram this past December for their gender reveal (it's a girl) and posting their Christmas pics. So it seems the split is fairly recent, and maybe not quite official.
While Pepa erased her post after responding to a commenters, Aundre still has his post with Pepa on his accounts. All comments are turned off, though.
The messiness doesn't stop there. It seems as though Aundre, who has done some acting like in the Netflix flick Carter High, has done some adult-acting too. In a semi-reality video called "jock exam" which appears on several porn sites, a man bearing a STRONG resemblance to Aundre is starring. It very well could have been early in his career and he just needed a check. It's obviously NSFW, and quite X-rated.
About five years ago, Aundre was also featured on The Dirty when he was a TCU football player who had leaked p**is pics.
By the way, Jordyn isn't letting up on blasting Pepa. She also revealed they met a while back, and Pep was trying to get at her.
Pepa's daughter Egypt also chimed in.
It's probably best for both women to move on to something better.
Both Martin Lawrence and Will Smith already confirmed a third Bad Boys blockbluster was on its way. Now, we know when it'll hit theaters. Go inside for the release date, plus deets on New Edition/RBRM (minus Ralph Tresvant and Johnny Gill) heading out on tour inside...
Bad Boys For Life!
The long awaited Bad Boys reunion is going down. And now we know when we'll get to see it.
17 years after Bad Boys II hit theaters, Martin Lawrence and Will Smith will be reuniting for the third installment of the franchise. The first Bad Boys film hit theaters in 1995. And it's a cult classic.
The action packed buddy cop film is appropriately titled Bad Boys For Life and it'll hit theaters January 17, 202, according to Sony Pictures. Hard to believe it's been 17 years since the last Bad Boys movie.
In 2014, Martin confirmed the action comedy film trilogy is on the way.
"I believe so. Yes. I just talked to Jerry Bruckheimer yesterday and he said its real, they're working on the script, they're getting close and it all looks good," the actor said during an interview on "Conan."
In 2016, Will confirmed that the movie was happening. The Concussion star told BBC Radio 1Xtra, "I hadn’t seen him for about two years, and we just looked at each other. We hugged and in that moment we both knew we were making another Bad Boys. So we’re definitely doing another one.”
Both Bad Boys For Life and Bad Boys 4 were announced in August 2015. At that time, Bad Boys For Life was supposed to hit theaters in February 2017, which was then pushed back to early 2018 and then November 2018. By August 2017, neither movie was on Sony's schedule of releases.
Directing duo Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah (Black, Gangsta) will helm the film. Original Director Joe Caranhan cut ties with the film and there was doubt if the movie would be made. "I don't think we're going to get one," Martin Lawrence said at the time. "Not the way everything's turning out. Will is off doing another movie, and I don't think it's going to happen."
But, you can't keep a Bad Boy down! We're HERE for it! Are you?
In other throwback news...
Better late than never, right?
A version of New Edition is about to head out on tour, a little over a year after their biopic "The New Edition Story" slayed television ratings. Ronnie DeVoe, Bobby Brown, Ricky Bell, and Mike Bivens have teamed up to give the fans the tour they had been begging for since the biopic dropped.
Unfortunately, the guys weren't able to get bandmates Ralph Tresvant and Johnny Gill. We're shocked Bobby signed on though. Let's hope he makes it to rehearsals and won't be struggling on stage like he has in the past.
Right now, RBRM is set to rock the stage on Atlanta on May 18th, Detroit on June 16th and they're supposedly set to head out on a world tour in September, according to Bobby.
Ronnie and Ricky also posted the announcement:
Mike hasn't posted, but he did post this recently:

So, about that messy tour of Toni Braxton's where she allowed for her own sister to get fired, likely because of her other sister...
We've got an exclusive sneak peek at how Traci learned her own family may have flipped on her.
Last month, news broke that Toni had ixnayed her own sister, Traci, from her new tour. And folks were trying to figure out who was to blame.
Throughout this season of "Braxton Family Values" so far, we've learned that Traci, along with sisters Towanda and Trina, are suing sister Tamar's estranged husband Vincent Herbert over rights & ownership of the "BFV" theme song. Apparently, the sisters learned Vince filed papers to put all publishing rights in his name, and he now has ownership over the song they wrote and sang. Sneaky.
While it initially seemed that lawsuit was the reason Traci may have been dropped, since Vince is pulling strings on Toni's tour due to Tamar also being on it, there's more to the story.
On tonight's episode of "BFV," Traci receives news from her manager Cliff that both Toni and Tamar may not want to have Traci on the upcoming tour. It's not just Vince.
Traci's not ere for her own family flipping on her, especially Tamar (who has since been fired from the tour as well, allegedly.) And she calls up her sister to confront her.
"BFV" airs tonight on WE TV at 9p ET.
Jordan Peele is dropping hints at his next thriller and we're shook. Get the deets on Lupita Nygong'o in talks to star in it, plus flicks of Lupita, Ava DuVernay, Lori Harvey and more in Cannes inside...
Secure those weaves, wigs and clip-ins because Jordan Peele is gearing up for the snatchery.
Last year, the Academy Award winner secured a first-look deal with Universal Pictures to continue to “push boundaries of storytelling” under his two-year contract with the film company through his Monkeypaw Productions imprint.
Now, details about the follow up to his critically acclaimed film Get Out are trickling in. And we're already shook.
The comedian unveiled the poster for his upcoming thriller titled, Us. According to Variety, Oscar winner Lupita Nyong'o is in talks to star in the film. Her Black Panther co-star Winston Duke is reportedly being eyed for a lead role in the movie and so is Elisabeth Moss.
Us will be the first film under his new deal with Universal Pictures.
Details about Us are very scarce, however, Jordan said in the past that he wanted to make four social thrillers that would be released over the next decade. The Hollywood Reporter give a few extra details about the filming, reporting that the story centers on two couples, one white, one black. If a deal is made with the acting crew, Lupita and Winston would play one couple, while Elisabeth would play part of the other couple.
Get Out was a huge hit at the box office, raking in $255 million worldwide. We expect Us to do the same, if not better.
The flick will hit theaters March 19, 2019. Y'all ready?
Speaking of Lupita...
Lupita Nyong'o is currently overseas putting in work for a new spy movie she's featured in. And she's an entire mood.
Drinks? Why not!
The Oscar winner, styling in a black Miu Miu dress, has joined forces with actresses Penelope Cruz, Marion Cotillard, Jessica Chastain, and Fan Bingbing for an all-female spy thriller titled, 355.
The star-studded cast assembled to party it up at a cocktail party in celebration of the upcoming film on the Grey Goose Terrace in Cannes, France during the 71st annual Cannes Film Festival. The ladies snapped it up with film’s director Simon Kinberg during the party. Smash creator Theresa Rebeck is set to write the script for the movie.
The title 355 was inspired by the code name for a real life female spy in the American Revolutionary War.
According to Variety's Rebecca Keegan, the idea for the film came from a conversation Jessica Chastain had with her agent at last year’s Cannes Festival, concerning the lack of action movies led by women.
Chastain said idea for #355Movie started last year at Cannes, during a conversation with her agent about why there were not female action films in the marketplace
— Rebecca Keegan (@ThatRebecca) May 10, 2018
As of now, 355 doesn’t have a script yet, but is seeking global distributors at this year’s Cannes and has already reached a deal with FilmNation Entertainment and CAA Media Finance Group in France, according to Screen Rant.
The site also reports:
355 revolves around a team of international secret agents that must work together, in order to stop a sinister crime organization from acquiring and using a deadly weapon. Nyong’o likened her character in the film to tech guru Q from the James Bond movies and discussed what drew her to the role in the first place:
“I have never seen an African woman intelligence agent. To me that was important because I know they exist. What she uses to her advantage is [people] underestimating her.”
And here's the first look at the star-studded 355 cast:

We're here for Lupita playing a spy. The all-female cast sort of reminds us of Rihanna and her collaboration with an A-list cast in the upcoming Oceans 8 flick.
Now all we need is that scammer movie featuring Lupita and Rihanna with Ava DuVernay and Issa Rae working behind-the-scenes. Netflix reportedly picked up the rights to the film, so hopefully we get to see it soon. Or at least get new deets about it.

Emily B. and Fabolous are making their own rules though, because she's reportedly still by his side today...
Fabolous' made his scheduled appearance at New Jersey Superior Court today for that March domestic violence situation involving Emily and her family. And right by his side - Emily herself.
According to Bossip, she also asked for the retraining order to be lifted, which it was:
Both Fab and Emily B. were in Bergen County Superior Court Thursday for an early disposition hearing, where defendants come face to face with prosecutors for the first time and mull possible plea deals.
Instead, Fabolous – whose real name is John Jackson – waived the appearance, and is due back next month. Before the hearing, Fabulous, dressed in black jeans, a black t-shirt and black jacket, and Emily, dressed in jeans, a blouse, and perspex heels, sat together in the back of the courtroom and waited for him to be called. They later left the court together.
This first hearing is due to Fabolous copping assault and terroristic threat charges after he allegedly knocked out girlfriend Emily's teeth when they both returned from an L.A. trip. The details are sketchy, but the police report details Emily's side of the story. She says he threatened to beat her with a baseball bat after learning she had traveled to L.A. without him. He was then caught on video yelling and lunging at her and her male family members at the New Jersey home the two live in with their children.
Emily was off social media for weeks, but when she returned, she posted pics from inside their home, and fab commented with flirty emojis on her selfies. It's a clear indication they're very likely still together.
They also were spotted together at a friend's party over the weekend.
Meek Mill sits down with "The Breakfast Club" to chop it up about a plethora of topics surrounding his recent release from jail. Go inside for the highlights from his candid interview...
Meek Mill continues making press rounds since being released from prison two weeks ago as he seemingly becomes the poster child for criminal justice reform.
Meek was ordered to serve a 2-4 year sentence after violating his parole in 2017. After serving six months, he was released thanks to the Pennsylvania Supreme Court ordering his release.
After chatting with Dateline's Lester Holt, the MMG rapper sat down with Power 105's "The Breakfast Club" to speak to his fans about rumors and reports surrounding his release from jail.
Since breaking up with Nicki Minaj, Meek hasn't said much about the Head Barb....until now.
After Nicki made her resurgence, she spoke on her ex-boyfriend's case and controversial Judge Genece Brinkleyduring an interview with Zane Lowe for Beats 1. She said:
“The judge in question did everything I asked of her, so I can’t badmouth her because I met her personally,” the "Chun Li" rapper said. “I know what she said to us. He knows that I know that. Of course, I wouldn’t wish jail on anybody but…I’ll get into detail on that in the documentary and possibly on the album.”
DJ Envy brought up what the Young Money rapper said about his case, but he misquoted her. He said the Queens raptress commented that “the judge did the right thing, or something like that.”
The Philly native said he wasn't feeling what Nicki said and felt she shouldn't have said anything at all.
“I wasn’t feeling that,” he said. “She shouldn’t have said nothing. We’ll leave it at that. I don’t feel no way. I wasn’t feeling that. When it come to freedom — I don’t care who it is, this could be Safaree, or anybody — if I know something and that man’s freedom is on the line and I could say something to help the situation…It’s right or wrong. I’ma say it. If I don’t say it, I just won’t say nothing.”
Some of Nicki's comments in the Beats 1 interview made people feel like she was on the judge's side.
When it comes to that insane request about the judge requesting Meek remix Boyz II Men's "On Bended Knee" with her own shoutout, Meek dished that Nicki was there when she said it:
“Why would I make that up?” he asked. “It actually was somebody else there. They said they don’t want to involve they self in it."
The "Dreams & Nightmares" rapper compared the judge to a "slave chaser" who was sent to bring him down.
“A guy in jail was like, ‘That lady a slave chaser. You a dream chaser. You trying to run from the plantation. You made it far. You made it 30 miles out. They sent her to chase you down. Y’all could have both got away. She grabbed you and dragged you all the way back.’ That’s how I view it, for real, for real,” he added.
The 31-year-old, who recently celebrated a birthday, opened up about his drug addiction and how he got hooked in the first place.
“I never had molly in my life. I thought [Percocet] was okay, I wouldn’t be addicted, or it wouldn’t hurt me because it’s a pill that a doctor would prescribe you. A girl gave it to me one day, ‘This is gonna make you fuck for an hour.’ Yeah? Let me try this. This a pill that a doctor would give me if I had a toothache. Sometimes you gotta go overboard. I made girls fall in love with me off Percs.”
Oh? OK Meek.
He continued, "I got addicted. It wasn’t a mental thing. It’s just, when you don’t take it, your body’s shutting down. If you’re addicted to opioids, it’s like heroine…it’s an addiction. You shouldn’t go to jail for addiction. It should be rehabilitation.”
He said he was able to get doctors to come to his house in Atlanta to flush his system out and to help him ween off the drugs.
After his infamous rap war with Drake, Meek said he and Drizzy are cool now.
“I ain’t talk to him yet. I seen him on FaceTime the other day…It was good energy. He put good energy in the air. What happened happened. We moved past that. I think we’ll have a conversation or something when we see each other and keep it moving in life.”
Meek shared his thoughts on Kanye West and his controversial dealings with the President and Republicans.
"When Kanye speaking, he's trying to deliver something...and you got to be informed. Even a lot of stuff he's speaking on is serious stuff. It's people locked behind them walls, they're basically scholars to this stuff and they've been in prison their whole lives. They're offended by this stuff. I even talked to him one day."
He continued, “He need to visit a prison. Go see what’s going on.”
He also said Kanye might want to think 10 times before actually speaking. WORD.
As for the support, Meek said he was freaking out when Beyonce shouted him out on "Top Off." He said when he first heard it, he kept replaying it back because he was in shock.
“Beyoncé ain’t shouting no ni**as out. I took that as God really working in my favor. You got Bey talking about ‘Free Meek Mill.’ That was a great day…These people got a lot of influence. They basically helping to save my life.”
Take a listen to Meek's interview below where he also talked about squashing his beef with Beanie Siegel, answering the phone for jailed rapper Bobby Shmurda, how his relationship with 76ers owner Michael Rubin and Patriots owner Robert Kraft came about, his new Amazon series, new music and more.
By the way, Envy's comments are in shambles thanks to the Barbz:
In another interview today:
Meek revealed Jay Z gave him money to help pay for his bills while he was locked away. Apparently, Meek's lifestyle ran up a tab of $7 million while he was in jail and Hov ended up helping him out financially. Check it at the 18:15 minute mark above.
In the interview he also talked about wanting to speak out in support of Colin Kaepernick but was fearful. He also breaks down the airport incident where he allegedly punched an airline worker, his real friendships with Mike Rubin and Robert Kraft and more.
By the way, according to reports, Meek's name has been re-entered into the Philly prison system so that he can get his check He's not back in lock up physically. He had a little over $660 on his books from family and friends that a check is being rendered from.
Label mates Meek Mill and Wale have squashed their beef since Meek's incarceration. Actually, they squashed when Meek was still behind bars. As you can see, they're still on good terms. Peep their push-up bromance that happened yesterday when Wale went to visit Meek at his NYC hotel.

Burglars are getting extra bold these days and spending the night in Hollywood homes after breaking in. Yes, having whole sleepovers. Deets on Rihanna being the latest victim inside...
As Rihanna strutted the sidewalk catwalk in New York Thursday, a burglar was making himself right at home in her L.A. abode. TMZ reports police caught a 26-year-old Orange County man who they believe spent the night. They tasered the man in order to get him into custody.
Even though her home does have a security system and surveillance cameras, the burglar found a way to get inside. It's unclear if anything was stolen.
The super bold dude was arrested and charged with stalking. His bond is set at $150,000.
Meanwhile, Rihanna was spotted walking the New York streets looking unbothered and white hot before her Savage x Fenty lingerie launch:
1. A 95-year-old grandmother was arrested last weekend after she hit her 46-year-old granddaughter in the face with a slipper. The Daytona Beach police actually made her spend the night in jail, now she's telling why she went upside her granddaughter's head. STORY
Teairra Mari's sex tape leak just got even more messy. If that's even possible. Now she's blaming her current boyfriend, who still blames her ex. So she just went Jazmine Sullivan on his a**. Pics and deets inside...
The other day when Teairra Mari's sex tape and pics of her naked body and face covered in sexual aftermath hit her Instagram account, she accused one of her exes of hacking her account.
Now, she's accusing her current boyfriend, Akbar Abdul-Ahad, of possibly having something to do with it.
The two were arguing on Akbar's IG Stories where he tried to get her to clear his name, but no dice.
T flipped out even further after that. Akbar told TMZ that he was working out at his apartment's gym Thursday when security told him a woman was outside bashing in the windows to his Mercedes G Wagon. He said when he went outside, he found Teairra and her bestie Milan Christopher. They allegedly ran away from the scene. Apparently, the culprit was using the steel leg of a bar stool to do the damage:
We don't know what's going on here, especially considering the fact Teairra had just said right before this she was going to stay with Akbar.
Chile, just throw everybody away.
These folks move on so quickly. We've got picture proof (this time) of The Weeknd hooking up with his ex Bella Hadid at a very public Cannes party inside...
After hooking up with Chantel Jeffries - which looks like a dead ringer for his ex Bella Hadid these days - all Coachella long, it only took a month for The Weeknd to go back to the real thing.
The singer and his model ex were seen kissing at the Magnum VIP Partyduring the 71st annual Cannes Film Festival at Magnum Beach Thursday night. French kisses in France are always welcomed.
After reports came out that Weeknd was all up on Bella during his headlining Coachella gig, Bella cleared up the rumorssaying it wasn't her, even though she was there.
Now, it seems the tortured soul who was just torn up over his most recent ex Selena Gomez just got that old thing back.
This should get interesting...
Famed producer Detail is being accused of rape and assault! Deets inside...
In disturbing news, famed producer Detail - who has worked with big names like Beyonce, Jay Z, Drake, Lil Wayne and Wiz Khalifa - is being accused of rape and physical assault by two women.
Two aspiring singers are requesting restraining orders against Detail, real name Noel Fisher, after they claim he sexually assaulted and physically assaulted them.
In the court documents (obtained by TMZ), singer Kristina Buch claims Detail - who's biggest hit is Beyonce& Jay Z's "Drunk In Love" - raped her during a recording session in Miami back in February. She also claims he made her have sex with him in front of other people. The Blast reports Kristina said Detail forced her “to have vaginal/anal sex with him after recording songs on multiple occasions.” She alleges that the producer would make her have sex with him in front of another woman, who would record it against her wishes.
Kristina claims Detail got violent with her last week while they were staying at the Malibu Beach Inn. According to the singer, Detail allegedly pulled her hair, hit her and choked her. She also alleges he bit her lip during an argument and left bruises all over her body.
The other singer, named Peyton Ackley, says Detail made her and Kristina his "sex slaves" after he took them under his wing with promises of breaking into the music industry. She claims Detail walked in on her while she was taking a bath and then forced her to have sex with him while another producer watched.
Detail also allegedly slammed her head into the wall and dragged her up a flight of steps in March. She also claims he forced her to take nude pictures while he masturbated and forced her to record him having sex with Kristina. In their separate filings, both women claim Detail would whip out his penis and make them "kiss it." He allegedly controlled what they ae, when they slep and who they spoke to.
A judge granted Kristina and Peyton, along with Kristina's sister, restraining orders against Detail earlier this week. Shortly after reports about Detail's alleged sexual misconduct, two MORE singers came forward via Twitter. "Me, Myself & I" singer Bebe Rexha and "Figures" singer Jessie Reyez both claim Detail tried to sexually assault them as well:
Glad these women came out. It’s scary. He tried to with me, but I literally ran out of that studio. Karma is a bitch https://t.co/PwEWOrm323
— Bebe Rexha (@BebeRexha) May 10, 2018
It’s scary for females to come out and say something. Those women are strong. He tried to do the same thing to me when I was new artist.
— Bebe Rexha (@BebeRexha) May 10, 2018
One night, over 6 years ago Noel ‘Detail’ Fisher tried this on me. I was lucky and I got out before it got to this. I didn’t know what to say or who to tell. I was scared. Fear is a real thing. The girls that came out are brave as hell. https://t.co/EiudYeBNuT
— Jessie Reyez (@Jessiereyez) May 10, 2018
It's reported this isn't the first time he has been accused of violent behavior against a woman. In 2011, a woman sued him after making claims that he raped her in his California home when she was hired to assist with a pre-Grammy party. She accused the Detroit native of holding her against her will.
In other legal news, Detail was also involved in another lawsuit when he sued "Nothing Was The Same" collaborator Drake for being attacked by his bodyguard at a party after he allegedly refused to work with Drizzy exclusively. The case ended up getting thrown out last month after Detail allegedly stopped responding.
Karen Huger is reality tv gold. We're obsessed and not even ashamed about it. We've got an exclusive sneak peek at Sunday's edge-snatching episode of "RHOP" that proves why.
Lawd we love Karen Huger so much. Chick went from last week's wig fiasco at the park to snatching everybody else's wig and edges on the upcoming episode of "Real Housewives of Potomac."
On Sunday's episode, the ladies continue their weekend escape in the woods, but it’s not quite as relaxing as Ashley (Darby) had hoped. Duh. What "relaxing" girls trip is ever relaxing on Housewives?
Y'all know Karen wasn't here for Gizelle Bryant or Robyn Dixon's "Uncle Ben" tax issue shade. So after a few glasses of champagne, Karen starts hurling insults at Robyn, leaving all the ladies fake confused.
All we know is, the dinner ends with Karen "yelling" a CONVINCING "Shut the f**k up" at Robyn.
So nasty and so rude.
"Real Housewives of Potomac" airs Sunday nights on Bravo at 8/7c.
Cardi B has teamed up with Rita Ora, Bebe Rexha and Charli XCX for a flirty girls anthem, "Girls." Take a listen to the track, plus see Ciara and Russell Wilson raise $1.4 million during a benefit concert with the Seattle Symphony inside...
Sometimes some girls just want to kiss girls.
Rita Ora just released her new summer anthem dedicated to all the ladies who like kissing ladies. Cardi B, Bebe Rexha and Charli XCX join the British singer for the summer bop.
It almost sounds like a coming out song for Rita as she seems to be inspired by her sexuality on the track. "Sometimes, I just wanna kiss girls, girls, girls / Red wine, I just wanna kiss girls, girls, girls / Sometimes, I just wanna kiss girls, girls, girls," the ladies sing on the chorus.
The pregnant "Bartier Cardi" rapper served up a few girl-loving lyrics that she's no stranger to.
"Now I could be your lipstick just for one night (one night) / Girls just wanna have fun, they have their funds right (yeah) / I mean, say my name, say my name, say my name (say my name)/ It tastes good just running up your tongue, right? (hurrr) / I put this smack on your lips all so pucker up (mwah)"
"We ain't never heard of you 'cause you ain't gun enough / And I don't gotta introduce myself (Cardi) / I'm too sexy, I seduce myself (Bardi) / Seven figure, never need a n---a (nope) / I steal your chick, have her down with the scissor / Tonight, I don't want a dog, I want a kitten / I might french your girls and break bread."
Take a listen below:
Another artist putting her skills to use in a different way:
Ciara and Russell Wilson use their starpower to help raise funds for charity.
Last night, the R&B singer and Super Bowl winning quarterback joined forces with the Seattle Symphony for a benefit concert in support of greater equity and opportunities for youth, and access to the arts.
Russell was tapped to host the event and he even played conductor. Ha.
CiCi rocked the stage, performing some of her hits with the Seattle Symphony providing the music. Other performers hitting the stage include rapper Macklemore and DJ Ryan Lewis.
This unique event sprang from conversations between the artists and organizations as they explored fun and creative ways to come together in an effort to inspire and engage the greater community to support critical programs that are focused on youth, equity and access to the arts.
Peep a few clips of Ciara slaying the stage below:
It was a successful night - they raised $1.4 million!
"1.4 Million Dollars and Counting Raised Tonight! What an incredible time bringing our Foundations together to make a difference! Truly grateful! #WhyNotYou," CiCi captioned on Instagram.
All proceeds will directly support initiatives and programs of the Macklemore & Ryan Lewis Equity Fund, Russell and Ciara’s Why Not You Foundation, and the Seattle Symphony. Nice!
We love seeing our YBF celebs giving back!
