Morgan Freeman has issued a 2nd apology amid reports that one of his accusers claim her words were takenout of context. Find out what he said in his 2nd apology, plus what the alleged victim said insie...
Morgan Freeman is speaking out to apologize again after 8 women accused him of inappropriate behavior and sexual harassment. CNN published an investigative report that extensively details the 80-year-old actor's alleged sexual advances he made towards the women, which include production staff, employees at his production company Revelations Entertainment (the production company he started in 1996 with his business partner Lori McCreary), and with female reporters.
Right after the news broke, he issued an apology (on Thursday, May 24th). And now, he's issuing another one. This time, he admitted to saying things in a "joking" way or that he would give compliments to make women (and men) feel more comfortable around him. He said he apologizes if his words made anyone feel uncomfortable. He's adamant that he "did not assault women" and any suggestion that he did is "false."
"I am devastated that 80 years of my life is at risk of being undermined, in the blink of an eye, by Thursday's media reports," Freeman said."All victims of assault and harassment deserve to be heard. And we need to listen to them. But it is not right to equate horrific incidents of sexual assault with misplaced compliments or humor.
"I admit that I am someone who feels a need to try to make women—and men—feel appreciated and at ease around me. As part of that, I would often try to joke with and compliment women, in what I thought was a light-hearted and humorous way.
"Clearly I was not always coming across the way I intended. And that is why I apologized Thursday and will continue to apologize to anyone I might have upset, however unintentionally.
"But I also want to be clear: I did not create unsafe work environments. I did not assault women. I did not offer employment or advancement in exchange for sex. Any suggestion that I did so is completely false."
CNN entertainment reporter Chloe Melas, who co-wrote the article about Freeman's alleged misconduct, spoke to 16 people, 8 of whom said they were victims of inappropriate behavior and harassment by Freeman.
Now, 1 of the 8 women/alleged victims claim her words were taken out of context.
A woman named Tyra Martin sent a message to TMZ explaining what she said about Freeman to CNN wasn't conveyed the way she meant it. The site said she wrote them and said:
"Hey, still getting a lot of nasty messages from people who think I AM one of the accusers. I'm not, never was. CNN totally misrepresented the video and took my remarks out of context." The incident involved an interview Martin did with Freeman, where she recounted, "When I stood up, I pulled my skirt part of my dress down and he did say, 'Oh, don't pull it down now.'"
Do you think she's backtracking because of all of the media attention or were her words actually misconstrued?
Ludacris and Eudoxie host a tea party for their daughter Cadence Bridges' 3rd birthday. Meanwhile, Niecy Nash and her hubby Jay Tucker celebrate 7 years of marital bliss with a WAKANDA style bash. Flicks and videos inside...
Ludacris and wife Eudoxie are the proud parents of a 3-year-old! Over the weekend, the happy couple threw a birthday party to celebrate their daughter Cadence Bridges' 3rd birthday with family and close friends. And, as expected, it was fit for a princess.
The pretty pink tea party was hosted outside under white tents that were decorated with pink, gold and white balloons. The weather was perfect and it appears everyone enjoyed their time at the party, including Eudoxie's friends LeToya Luckett and Toya Wright, who brought her daughter Reign with her.
Luda is having a hard time watching his baby girl grow up right before his eyes.
"They Say the Youngest Runs the Household," he captioned on Instagram. "Well in this Family it’s 100% True! Cadence As You grow older I want you to go forth & pursue all of your dreams. Live life to the fullest & always make sure your happiness is second to none. And while your at it, just remember that every time you need hugs, kisses & a place to call your own I’m always here. There is no gift better than your presence on this earth! Happy 3rd Bday! Love Daddy. Ps can you please stay this size forever?"
"Today is a special day," Eudoxie captioned on Instagram. "I couldn’t imagine life sans you Cadence Gaëlle Bridges. This little girl is the angel God has blessed us with. She reminds me of myself. Wise beyond our years. I’m 32 going on 65 as my husband likes to say and she is 3 going on 25. When she witnessed me crying for the first time during my miscarriage, she gave me a hug and said, “it’s going to be ok Maman. Do you want daddy?” She even knows that daddy makes us all feel better. I love you ma cocotte. You make me stronger and better!!"
Cadence and her big sister Cai Bella were twinning.
Little Cadence is already ready for the cameras. The 3-year-old superstar-in-the-making served up several poses for the cameras in a cute pink and white dress:
Luda better stay strapped. Just sayin'....

Happy belated birthday Cadence!
At another party...
It was all about #BlackLove at the Hyperion Public in LA over the weekend as Niecy Nash and her husband Jay Tucker celebrated their 7th wedding anniversary. And they did it WAKANDA style! Of course!
The loved up couple invited their family - including Niecy's daughters Dia and Donelle - and friends, including actor Blair Underwood and his wife Desiree Dacosta, Niecy's "Claws" co-star Harold Perrineau, comedian/actor Alex Thomas and "This Is Us" actress Chrissy Metz for a celebration of their love and to turn up like they would if they were in Wakanda.
Peep videos and more flicks from the love fest below:

Love him, or hate him. LeBron James is going to LEBRON by any means necessary. Get into King James' epic Game 7 win against the Boston Celtics that advanced him to his 8th straight NBA Finals inside...
Love him, or hate him. You WILL respect him.
At the age of 33, LeBron James continues to prove why he's the King of the NBA.
Last night, LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers were up against the Boston Celtics in Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Finals. There was chatter that LeBron wouldn't be able to bring his team to the NBA Finals again, but they were all the way wrong.
King James led the Cavs to the NBA Finals for a fourth consecutive year, 87-79. Not only that, it's going to be LeBron's 8th consecutive year playing in the Finals! He has become the 6th player in NBA history to play in 8 straight Finals.
For his 100th consecutive game of the season, LeBron managed to put up 35 points, 15 rebounds, 9 assists and 8 turnovers. And he did it by playing the entire 48 minutes without a substitution. This was his first time playing all 48 minutes in a playoff game since 2006, when he was 21 years old. But, he had a point to make. And he made it-- LOUD and clear.
"We've been counted out for a long time this season," King James in a post-game interview. "For me to be able to lead these guys is a treat."
And it was a treat for sports fans to watch.
After the game, LeBron and the Cavs hit the locker room.
While Bron did this:
...everyone else was celebrating, turning up to Meek Mill's "Dreams & Nightmares" for the post-game celebration:
Meanwhile, sports analyst Shannon Sharpe and those damn grey sweatpants were doing the most in LeBron's honor:
LeBron's wife Savannah James stanned out for her man after his big win:
And LeBron's former teammate Dwyane Wade also showed him some love online after his win:

LeBron wasn't the only success story during Game 7....
Cavs player Jeff Green stepped in to play for forward Kevin Love, who missed Game 7 with a concussion. He scored 19 points with 8 rebounds and 1 assist. But guess what? 6 years earlier, Jeff had undergone heart surgery. Now, he's competing in the NBA Finals.
Peep his Instagram post above.
"I've battled. I worked my a** off each day since January 9, 2012 to get back on this court," Jeff said during an interview after the game. "And now to compete for a championship. I almost lost is all. I've been truly blessed to be able to step foot on the court, to play this game. Each day, I give it my all."
See a clip from his post-game interview below:
Jeff Green had open-heart surgery in 2012. Now he's competing in the NBA Finals

LeBron and the Cavs will learn if they will battle it out against the Golden State Warriors or the Houston Rockets after tonight's game, starting next Thursday.
Donda's House-named after Kanye West's mother- is changing its name after co-founder Rhymefest put Kanye West and his wife Kim Kardashian West on full blast. Get the latest inside....
Donda's House is completely cutting ties with with it's co-founder Kanye West.
Following a public spat between Donda's House co-founder Che “Rhymefest” Smith and Kanye's wife Kim Kardashian West, the non-profit organization is now changing its name. The organization posted a tweet announcing the news:
— Donda's House, Inc. (@DondasHouse) May 27, 2018
"Over the last five years we have put our students and our community first. We'd like to thank all of our supporters, and we assure you that our hearts have always been with the City of Chicago and we will continue to support youth in our future endeavors. We encourage Kim and Kanye to indeed pick up the baton of service," part of the announcement reads.
In case you missed, Rhymefest put Ye on blast when he posted a tweet asking Drake to help "the part of Chicago Kanye has abandoned," Donda's House - the nonprofit to honor West’s mother and provide arts education to Chicago.
He also asked folks to boycott Pusha T's new album Daytona, which was executive produced by Kanye West, and encouraged folks to use that money to donate to the organization instead.
Umm-We’ve actually been funding the organization since its existence. we also just paid the 5k tax bill on the home. If you’d like to volunteer or donate go to https://t.co/iFTMag9nn5 thanks for your support #luv
— Rhymefest (@RHYMEFEST) May 26, 2018
Rhymefest and Donda's House decided to no longer use the name Donda's House - youth - and to cease operating under the organization, since Kim Kardashian West- who Rhymefest says has never even visited the organization - says she’s making it her mission to “take” it.
All this despite her co-founder husband being accused of abandoning it. Due to Kanye’s recent reckless rhetoric, the organization has been fighting to get and retain sponsors and resources. Since Kanye has allegedly not been picking up the slack by putting his own money where his mouth is for his own organization, those who have been doing the work are moving on to their own endeavors under a different name to continue the amazing work they’ve done for the youth of the Chicago.
@RHYMEFEST taught me to stay true to myself and never give up on my music. DH gave me a platform to take my voice to the next level. Found my notebook that Che made us bring every week and it inspired me to write my song “Distance”. Nothing but pureness of heart in every word. pic.twitter.com/amdiiEhvFU

Chicago is my home & I will do whatever it takes to move my community forward. I can own up to the delivery of my message not always being in the most professional package but my intentions are & will always be about progressing my people.
— Rhymefest (@RHYMEFEST) May 28, 2018
No word yet on the non-profit's new name. However, Rhymefest plans to keep doing good work in the community for Chi-town's youth.
Meanwhile, the Wests are in Wyoming enjoying family time:

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry will reportedly enjoy their honeymoon in Canadian paradise. Get the inside scoop on their honeymoon, plus flicks of Meghan looking like the perfect royal inside...
Meghan Markle and Prince Harry captured the world's attention when they said their "I Dos" during the wedding of the century. Now, details about their upcoming honeymoon festivities are trickling in.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex haven't gone on their honeymoon just yet since they have official royal business to handle before they let their hair down for a romantic honeymoon to celebrate their royal nuptials.
According to reports, Meghan and Harry will celebrate their union in Alberta, Canada at The Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge. The royal couple will enjoy all types of grown up activities inside their 6,000 sq. ft. Outlook Cabin, which is dubbed "The Royal Retreat," of course. And it'll cost almost $7,000 a night. TMZ reports the royal couple will honeymoon at this location that has a "rich history of royal guests."
The site reports:
King George VI and Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother stayed there in 1939, and the current Queen and Prince Philip hit it up in June 2005. Celebs like Anthony Hopkins, John Travolta and Bill Gates vacation there ... and it's where the 1954 Marilyn Monroe/Robert Mitchum film "River of No Return" was shot.
Our sources say the resort ordered some gear and goodies it doesn't normally keep on hand for Meghan and Harry.
It's reported security will be extra tight if/when Meghan and Harry arrive.
We won't know for sure where the Duke and Duchess of Sussex will celebrate their honeymoon, especially since their honeymoon destination has changed several times.
UPDATE: The resort issued a statement saying the Royal Couple has not booked a stay with them in the near future (yet).
...Angela Moore, regional director of public relations for Fairmont Hotels and Resorts, said in a statement on Monday that Harry and Meghan haven't reserved the posh spot.
“Though Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge has a longstanding history of serving as a royal retreat, we can confirm that the couple is not currently booked for a stay," the statement reads.
The royals couldn't immediately go on their honeymoon since they had to travel for their first engagement as a married couple in the week after the wedding. They were in attendance for a garden party for Harry's father Prince Charles' 70th birthday.
The former "Suits" actress followed protocol for the event, proving she has mastered royal protocol. Meghan wore a pair of nude tights paired with a pink GOAT dress (that sold out overnight after she wore it) for her first post-royal wedding event. The #MeghanEffect is real.
For all royal events, Queen Elizabeth II wants all her family members and guests to wear tights.
Meghan was tickled pink as her husband praised his dad during the event. A bee "attacked" Prince Harry as he was speaking, interrrupting his speech, and Meghan couldn't contain her laughter as she stood alongside Prince Charles' wife Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall. Check it:
“Sorry... that bee really got me” Harry during his speech at Prince Charles’ 70th birthday bash in first event as married couple since Royal Wedding 22nd May 2018 #PrinceHarry#meghanmarkle#HarryAndMehgan#dukeharry#duchessmegan#dukeansduchessofsussexpic.twitter.com/Dgy9NCwuwq

YAS! Meghan is killing the royal game. True Duchess indeed.
It's unclear when Meghan and Harry will go on their honeymoon. As of now, the Trooping the Colour parade is scheduled for June 9th, which they'll likely attend, so it's possible they could be on a flight on their way to their honeymoon right now.
Should we start our baby countdown now...or is it too soon?
By the way....

Wanda Sykes says she's DONE with working on "Roseanne" after the show's star, Roseanne Barr, went on a racist Twitter rant against former White House Senior Advisor Valerie Jarrett. Receipts inside...
UPDATE: ABC/Disney just announced they are CANCELING the "Roseanne" reboot, which premiered on March 27th.
ABC Entertainment president Channing Dungey just announced the show will NOT be returning for an 11th season this fall.
"Roseanne's Twitter statement is abhorrent, repugnant and inconsistent with our values, and we have decided to cancel her show," Channing wrote in a brief statement.
Well, there's that!
These pro-Trump supporters continue to show their REAL colors.
Actress/comedienne Wanda Sykes just QUIT ABC's hit reboot "Roseanne" after the show's leading star, Roseanne Barr, tweeted some racist ish aimed at Valerie Jarrett, former White House Senior Advisor to President Barack Obama.
In a few tweets, Wanda announced she's cutting ties with the show as a "consulting producer."
I will not be returning to @RoseanneOnABC.
— Wanda Sykes (@iamwandasykes) May 29, 2018
Fake News...I was never the head writer. I was a “Consulting Producer.” https://t.co/9aqb4fP3dl
— Wanda Sykes (@iamwandasykes) May 29, 2018
So, what did Roseanne say/tweet that caused Wanda to chuck the deuces? This tweet right here:
In the wee hours of the morning, Roseanne, who's known for her controversial tweets, compares Valerie Jarrett to a baby from the Muslim Brotherhood and Planet of the Apes, responding to a comment about Valerie Jarret. Roseanne tweeted, "Muslim brotherhood & planet of the apes had a baby=vj."
As expected, she deleted the tweet.
After receiving backlash on Twitter (y'all know Black Twitter wasn't having it), Roseanne came back to apologize and announced that she's "leaving Twitter":
Oh, now you want to run. But wait, before she announced she was leaving Twitter, she also attacked former First Daughter Chelsea Clinton, daughter of former President Bill Clinton.
Peep her tweets and Chelsea's response below:
Chelsea Soros Clinton

CORRECTION: CHELSEA CLINTON IS NOT MARRIED TO A SOROS NEPHEW. HER HUSBAND IS THE SON OF A CORRUPT SENATOR, SO SORRY!: https://t.co/FuEVnmnxu4

Sorry to have tweeted incorrect info about you!I Please forgive me! By the way, George Soros is a nazi who turned in his fellow Jews 2 be murdered in German concentration camps & stole their wealth-were you aware of that? But, we all make mistakes, right Chelsea?
— Roseanne Barr (@therealroseanne) May 29, 2018
Roseanne really out in these Twitter streets feeling herself huh?
We wonder how ABC/Disney is going to handle one of their biggest stars spewing racist tweets on social media? The ball in their court. Things that make you go hmm....
And since we LIVE for a good read:

Dictionary.com just called it like it is.
That was fast! ABC/Disney has canceled the "Roseanne" reboot following Roseanne Barr's racist tweet about former White House aide Valerie Jarrett. Deets inside....
The "Roseanne" reboot has been CANCELED!
Hours after Roseanne Barr posted a tweet that compared former White House aide Valerie Jarrett to a monkey, ABC/Disney announced they're canceling the show.
The reboot, which premiered in March 2018, is NOT returning for a new season.
ABC Entertainment president Channing Dungey, who became the first African-American to run a major network, just announced the show will NOT be returning for an 11th season this fall.
"Roseanne's Twitter statement is abhorrent, repugnant and inconsistent with our values, and we have decided to cancel her show," Channing wrote in a brief statement.
When a black woman is your boss...BLOOP!
One racist tweet caused Roseanne's show, which had been killing TV ratings, to get the axe! It premiered to HUGE ratings and it was renewed for its 12th season shortly after its debut episode. But, not anymore.

The "Insecure" cast is taking over GQ's Comedy Issue, which features Issa Rae on the cover. Get into the fellas working up a sweat in the gym and Issa recreating several 90s looks from your TV faves inside....
Get ready to see more and more of the "Insecure" cast as we count down to the season 3 premiere, which is slated to go down on August 12th.
Before we get all wrapped up in another chapter of one of our FAVE original series made specifically for us, the male actors of "Insecure" invade GQ magazine's Comedy Issue, which features "Insecure" creator/star Issa Rae on the cover. A grossly, weird cover at that. See it HERE if you missed.
Jay Ellis, Y'lan Noel (above), Sarunas Jackson (who we believe is a new dad--those deets HERE), Neil Brown Jr. and Wade Allain-Marcus bring the heat in a spread that features that guys snapping it up in sweatpants, track suits, shorts and even their boxers as they school us on the "Dos and Donts" in the gym.
Outside of their gym talk, we found one line in the GQ article that made us do a double take. Like we said, Sarunas - who plays Dro - is allegedly the baby daddy to his co-star Dominique Perry's baby girlwho was just born last week. In the article, it was written that Sarunas is "the most like the character he plays on the HBO hit—because at the time he was cast, he was also in an open relationship." Oh? Married Dro does have a lot going on in the series when it comes to women and "open" relationships.
We're interested in knowing his situationship with Dominique. Are they a couple or are they just going to do this co-parenting thing?

Check out the fellas' full spread here.
Peep the "Insecure" zaddies explain the rules of the gym below:
Which ones have you all been breaking?
Also in GQ...
After bringing the laughs in the Photoshopped fail of a cover (issa joke!) for GQ's June 2018 Comedy Issue, Issa Rae brings some looks most of us who grew up in the 90s can appreciate.
The 35-year-old recreated looks from some of your favorite black sitcom stars from the 90s. Issa channels Brandy in "Moesha," Will Smith in "The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air," Kadeem Hardison as Dwayne Wayne in "A Different World," and Jaleel White as Steve Urkel in "Family Matters" in the accompanying spread.
— Black Girl Culture (@blkgirlculture) May 22, 2018
Inside, the writer/actress said that she was inspired to create "Insecure" after watching the sitcoms she grew up on disappear from television. It was a void no one seemed inclined to fill until she made a splash on the scene.
Now, Issa is worried about her next move and she seems a bit afraid of failure. Here's an excerpt from her cover story:
“The failure is yours,” Issa said. “It is yoursss-uh.”
Is the prospect of failure still scary to you, now that you've had some success?
You're on the third season of a popular show—I'd describe that as success.
“That could go to shit,” Rae said. “This could be the worst season we've ever had. And then what? Then people are all of a sudden like, ‘Oh, okay.’ Then the calls stop. It's like stand-up comedy: In order to eventually succeed, you have to bomb. That's what every comedian says—that's when the fear goes away. And I feel like I'm still fearful because I haven't publicly bombed yet, in terms of my career. Yeah, Insecure is successful now, but where's my bomb coming? Where are my Will Smith bombs coming? Where, where is that happening?”
Will Smith is fine!
“He went through a period when he was depressed, when three or four of his movies in a row weren't number one at the box office. So for him that was terrible. And now he's talking about, ‘You gotta fail, you gotta fail.’ ” She paused. “And I don't want to make Instagram speeches about failing. I don't.”
That's interesting. What we get from this is that Issa is a perfectionist and will do anything not to fail.
You can read her full interview here.
Also, Issa sat down to give her best dating advice. Fellas, listen up and come correct:
HBO's "Insecure" returns for its 3rd season on August 12th. Y'all ready?
Kevin Hart takes his wife Eniko Hart and their kids out to lunch and for ice cream in LA. See their family flicks, plus shots of Rasheeda celebrating her birthday with her estranged husband Kirk Frost inside...
Issa family affair!
Kevin Hart is currently making rounds on his "Irresponsible Tour," but the actor/comedian always makes time for his family. The Night School star treated his wife Eniko Hart, their 6-month-old son Kenzo Hart, and his children Heaven and Hendrix Hart to lunch and ice cream in Los Angeles for their Sunday Funday.
As they strolled through the streets in Calabasas, Kev was all smiles, pausing to pose it up for the paps. Meanwhile, Eniko appeared to be a little annoyed with the paps.
Look at that cute face.
Nice to see Kevin on domestic duty before he heads to Canada this week for a few comedy shows. Bruh. These legs. Ha!
He's set to hit the stage in three Canadian cities this upcoming weekend:
By the way, Night School - also starring Tiffany Haddish - will hit theaters September 28th.
Speaking of "couples"...
Well, from the looks of things, it doesn't appear Rasheeda will be calling it quits with her estranged husband Kirk Frost any time soon.
After her cheating husband admitted to being the father to stripper Jasmine's son Kannon, Rasheeda and Kirk are still putting on a strong family front. The "Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta" star turned up for Gemini season, celebrating her birthday in Atlanta with family and friends, including "Real Housewives of Atlanta" star Kandi Burruss, new mom again Toya Wright and former reality star Monyetta Shaw.
Oh, and her estranged hubby - who big boy'd himself back into their home after she put his lying behind out - was right by her side.
Earlier this year, the PRESSED store owner threw Kirk a birthday party following the death of his mother. So you see, it seems these two are at least seemingly working it out to some degree. Co-parenting doesn't really consist of throwing each other parties and things.
Some fans are still not buying Kirk and Rasheeda's "storyline." From what we hear, Kirk and Rasheeda are getting paid the most on "LAHH: ATL" and this storyline is keeping them relevant. Jasmine is allegedly going along with it to get paid as well.
Swipe through below to see more flicks from Rasheeda's party and watch Toya turn all the way up below:
Then, there's this....

Speaking of maternity leave, it sounds like her fiance Offset is certainly keeping her company:
Pusha T said it's about to be a surgical summer, and um, that ish is officially here. He just dropped his response to Drake's response/diss track "Duppy Freestyle", and he's smoking all the skeletons out Drizzy's closet.
We saw it coming, but nobody expected it to get this personal. But since it has, we're pouring up our cup-o-tea to catch everything Pusha is spilling about OVO's head honcho.
First of all, Pusha T went and
put found Drake in black face for the cover of the diss track. So, there's that.
Please stop referring to this picture as “artwork”...I’m not an internet baby, I don’t edit images...this is a REAL picture...these are his truths, see for yourself https://t.co/gd6vRS3HM8pic.twitter.com/2el58HEZ8F

Ha! We surely hope Drake and his lawyers aren't out here reporting people.
The G.O.O.D. Music rapper addressed Drake's ethnicity, or lack thereof that makes him have to work twice as hard to rock a real 'fro.
Confused always thought you weren't black enough, scared to grow it because you scared it won't nap enough."
The irony of Pusha rapping about Drake being confused about his identity, over a sample of "Blood On The Leaves", isn't lost on us.
Pusha went in about how Drake has to split his money with Baby & Weezy over at Cash Money, so maybe that's why he's been so "angry" lately in his bar.
"Even though you multi I see that your soul don't look alive/The M's count different when Baby divides the pie."
Pusha also said Drake might be mad (and mentioning wedding rings and marriages as an insult) because his own Papa was a Rolling Stone.
"Dennis Graham stay off the Gram b*tch I'm on one/You mention wedding ring like it's a bad thing
Your father walked away at 5 hell of a dad thing/Marriage is something Sandy never had Drake
How you a winner but she keep coming in last place?
Then, dude went for the juggular. He said since Drake namechecked his wife, he's namechecking his secret child.
Remember when we told you Drake had allegedly knocked up a porn star named Sophie? Well, yeah. Pusha says it's true. And he says it's boy, not a girl as previously claimed by Sophie's publicist. Pusha spilled tea that Drake supposedly abandoned his own alleged son and seemingly accuses him of stashing the little boy outside the country. Apparently, the child is being hidden because Sophie's "image" isn't one Drake wants to be locked in with.
"...Sophie better known as your baby mother/Cleaned her up for IG but the stench is on her.
A baby's invoved...
You are hiding a child/Let that boy come home/Deadbeat muthaf**cka playing border control
Adonis is your son and he deserves more than a Adidas press run
Love that baby, respect that girl,/Forget she's a porn star, let her be your world (Eww sound effect)"
Wow. (By the way, a stripper also made similar claims about having Drake's child a few months before Sophie did.)
There's more where that came from, but Pusha said he's gonna take it slow.
"Talkin bout you upset. Well I want to see what it's like when you get angry. You show me that." Savagery.
After dropping his 2nd diss aimed at Drake, Pusha "Tea" says there's more more where that came from. He also explains some of the shots he aimed at Drizzy in "The Story Adidon." Get those deets, plus what the blackface photographer said about the photoshoot inside...
Social media is still abuzz after Pusha T unleashed his to response to Drake's response/diss track "Duppy Freestyle." Pusha "Tea" went ALL the way there on the track, dissing Drizzy, his moms, his pops AND his alleged son, Adonis. Hours after he released "The Story of Adidon," the VA rapper called into Power 105's "The Breakfast Club" to dish on the lethal diss. And he doesn't feel bad about it.
"I definitely didn't go to far with anything." Pusha said about the track.
For starters, Pusha said "all bets are off and everything is on the table" since Drake decided to bring up his fiancee on his track.
"All bets are off because of that," he told The Breakfast Club. "That alone causes all bets to be off. Everything else is fair game."
Pusha is moving real calculated in this rap beef. He said when he found the picture of Drake in blackface he was confused as to why Drizzy would even agree to do a photoshoot like that.
"What makes you take a picture like that? What's the problem?," he asked.
And what about the lyrics about the Young Money rapper's alleged son? Well, Pusha said Drake was planning on announcing his alleged son (that he supposedly shares with a stripper named Sophie) with the announcement of his new Adidas clothing line.
"His new line on Adidas is called Adidon, which is named after Adonis, his son," he explained. "So we couldn't know about your child until you started selling sweatsuits and sneakers? We couldn't know until he started selling the sweatsuits."
Pusha said he isn't afraid of Drake's comeback because he doesn't have any skeletons in his closet.
Then, the G.O.O.D. rapper dissed all deadbeat dads:
"I don't even hang with my friends who have child support issues. I'm big on kids. I don't hang with my friends who have child support issues. You can't hang with me, you can't ball with me. You can't do that."
Pusha did say the one regret he has about "Infrared" (his first Drake diss) is dragging Quentin Miller back into the beef. Take a listen to the interview below:
After posting Drizzy in blackface on his Instagram, IG decided to snatch it down after it was reported:
Sounds like Drake's camp is working behind the scenes.
King Push revealed the name of the photographer who shot the Young Money rapper in blackface for a photoshoot:
Now, photographer David Leyes is defending the picture. In the comments section on his Instagram page, David said he simply captured the rapper's idea and he's proud about it. Check it:
According to Hip Hop N More, the photoshoot was shot in 2008 before Drizzy started poppin'. In the shoot, the OVO rapper is seen wearing a "Jim Crow Couture” hoodie from the Toronto-based brand Too Black Guys' 2008 lookbook.
The ball is in Drake's court now. We'll just hold on to these tea mugs until he make a move.
One of Tinashe's younger brothers is coming after NBA baller Ben Simmons for allegedly dumping his sister for Kendall Jenner. And he's letting him HAVE IT. Peep his savagetry inside...
Hollywood relationships change faster than we change our underwear sometimes.
A few days ago there was a rumor that Philadelphia 76ers player Ben Simmons had called it quits with his R&B singing girlfriend Tinashe. Now, word on the curb is that he's rebounding with "Keeping Up With The Kardashians" star/model Kendall Jenner. Tinashe and Ben literally announced they were dating in March and now...they're dunzo.
Following rumors that Ben broke up with Tinashe because she was doing "Karashian sh*t," such as "calling the paparazzi" to let them know their whereabouts, Page Six is reporting the 21-year-old NBA baller is now dating Kendall Jenner. The irony of it all.
A source told the site that Ben has been seeing Kendall "for a few weeks now." If that's true, he either was playing both ladies at the same time at one point, OR, as soon he called it quits with Tinashe he rebounded with the quickness.
It's reported Ben and Kendall, who broke up with NBA player Blake Griffin following his trade to the Pistons, were spotted dining together with friends at the Bowery restaurant Vandal in Manhattan last week.
"Security measures seemed to have been taken to ensure Kendall and Ben enjoyed their night hassle free," a witness told Page Six about their date last week. "They were smiling the night away with their friends."
After that, it's said Ben and Kendall enjoyed a lunch together at the Beverly Hills Hotel sometime this week.
Kendall spent Memorial Day weekend with her sister Kourtney Kardashian before meeting up with Ben for lunch on Tuesday.
Well, one of Tinashe's brothers caught wind about Ben's new "girlfriend" and took to Twitter to defend his sister. And he let Ben HAVE it.
Peep the tweet:
Then, he said:
Sorry for blowing up y’all twitter everyone. it was actually the only way to defend my sister against all this bullshit. and i’m prolly gonna be fighting some niggas from philly for another couple hours so if y’all mute me don’t worry, it’s all good
— kudi (@kudikaching) May 30, 2018
And here's a throwback pic of the Joyride singer and her two younger brothers:
Not even mad at her brother for taking up for his sister.
There's also a Twitter account that claims to be ran by Tinashe's grandmother. She also tweeted about the break up:
Dear twitter fans and fans of Tinashe, I have decided to leave Twitter because of all the hate and lies about Tinashe. You must realize that I love her very much but as a family member I really can’t call out all the lies and hate because some things should not be shared.
— TinasheGramma (@TinasheGramma) May 29, 2018
The last picture Tinashe posted of herself and Ben was on April 20th:
However, Ben has erased all pics he posted of Tinashe on his IG. Guess he has officially moved on.

Valerie Jarrett addresses Roseanne Barr's racist tweet with class just as we expected she would. Find out what she said, plus the epic response from the drug company that makes Ambien after Roseanne blamed the drug for her racism inside...
"When they go low, we go high" - Michelle Obama couldn't have said it better. Roseanne Barr's world is crumbling down to the ground after she sent out a racist tweet comparing Valerie Jarrett, former White House Senior Advisor to President Barack Obama, to a monkey/ape.
Since then, Wanda Sykes quit the show as a consulting producer, ABC president Channing Dungey canceled her show, and all of the "Roseanne" reruns are being pulled from TV streaming services like Hulu. She has also lost endorsement deals as well.
Amid all of the controversy, Valerie Jarrett is now speaking out to address the racism she was involuntarily faced with. While speaking to MSNBC, Valerie assured everyone she's fine and said this moment in time certainly counts as a "teaching moment" for us all. While she said she's OK, she's more concerned for people who face racism on a daily who may not have people to come to their defense such as she had.
"I think we have to turn it into a teaching moment," she said. "I'm fine. I'm worried about all the people out there who don't have a circle of friends and followers who come right to their defense. The person who is walking down the street minding their own business and they see somebody cling to their purse, or run across the street, or every black parent I know who has a boy who has to sit down and have a conversation -- the talk -- as we call it. As you say, those ordinary examples of racism that happen every single day."
Now this is a class act. While all this is going on, she's more concerned about everyday people who deal with racism. Real woman status.
Roseanne made claims she was quitting Twitter after apologizing for her racist tweet, but it appears she's still tweeting and deleting.
The 65-year-old actress posted a tweet where she tried to explain where the racist tweet came about. She blamed the prescription insomia drug Ambien as the reason why she sent that tweet.
“Guys I did something unforgiveable so do not defend me," she wrote in the now deleted tweet. "It was 2 in the morning and I was ambien tweeting-it was memorial day too-i went 2 far & do not want it defended-it was egregious Indefensible [sic]. I made a mistake I wish I hadn’t but…don’t defend it please."
She then tweeted that her mention of Ambien was an "explanation" not an "excuse":
no, i didnt i blamed myself. stop lying. Yes, I have had odd ambien experiences on tweeting late at night-like many other ppl do. I BLAME MYSELF OK? it's just an explanation not an excuse, Ok, bully?
— Roseanne Barr (@therealroseanne) May 30, 2018
The drug company who makes Ambien caught wind of Roseanne's claims and made sure to clear their name in the ordeal. The drug company, Sanofi, checked Roseanne's claims with epic shade. Peep the tweet:
People of all races, religions and nationalities work at Sanofi every day to improve the lives of people around the world. While all pharmaceutical treatments have side effects, racism is not a known side effect of any Sanofi medication.
— Sanofi US (@SanofiUS) May 30, 2018
Nice try Roseanne. You need more people though.
Oh. And y'alls president had to throw his 2 cents in the mix as well:
Bob Iger of ABC called Valerie Jarrett to let her know that “ABC does not tolerate comments like those” made by Roseanne Barr. Gee, he never called President Donald J. Trump to apologize for the HORRIBLE statements made and said about me on ABC. Maybe I just didn’t get the call?

EJ is about to start his own trend. Forget the gray sweatpants.
After running his errands, he enjoyed some down time at the spa for a facial:
Must be nice.

Yara Shahidi and Serena Williams grace the covers of Harper's Bazaar Arabia & UK, respectively. And did you expect anything less than flawlessness? We didn't. Peep their covers and more inside...
Yara Shahidi does it again!
The "Grown-ish" star STUNS on TWO covers of Harper's Bazaar Arabia June 2018 issue and we can barely stand it!
Snapping it up in a powder pink feathery Chanel number on one cover cover, the 18-year-old actress/activist is breathtakingly gorgeous in other pieces from the French fashion house's Spring/Summer 2018 collection.
And she did it wearing Nike sneakers!
But, we all know Yara is much more than just a pretty face. Her intelligence is also A1 and she continues to WOW us every time she speaks on any social or racial injustices.
In the cover story, the super woke millennial credits her multicultural background (her mom Keri Shahidi is black and her dad Afshin Shahidi is Iranian) for creating a sense of wanting to love everyone no matter who they are or where they're from.
“Being multicultural, you can’t help but be interested and connected to the world around you,” she says. “My family is from all over the world, so how can you not care for people around the world too?”
Since she was born, she has had influential people around her. Her cousin, Anousheh Ansari, is the first Iranian-American astronaut and the first female private space explorer.
“My Iranian relatives have reaffirmed the idea that the sky is the limit – but in fact, my cousin proved that the sky isn’t even the limit because she went to space!”
Nice! Who knew?
Thanks to her parents, they provided an environment for Yara that happily mixes both cultures. And while the two cultures may seem extremely different, the 18-year-old says they're actually more alike than different.
“I hit the cultural jackpot in terms of food, but what’s fascinating is that as different as both sides may seem, they’re really similar. How we operate, our moral code, who we are in general, being close to family, respect... It’s really universal in a way that blurs both sides.”
“No, I don’t see much of a ‘this is my black side and this is my Iranian side’, because I come from a family of socially-engaged humans, and it’s hard to identify because of how similar both sides are."
And she's not afraid to wave her feminism flag high:
"I do classify myself as a feminist, but in that same conversation we realize that women’s liberation looks different in different women. So it’s about being inclusive. It’s not saying ‘this is what a liberated woman looks like,’ it’s about a conversation that each woman chooses for themselves.
The article states Yara will be heading to Harvard University this fall. It's unclear how she'll continue filming "Grown-ish" and be an Ivy League student, but we know she'll make it work.
“Education is crucial because I understand the privilege I’ve had in how particular education has been to me. My realm of possibility seems so much larger.”

On another cover...
All hail the tennis queen! Serena Williams is kicking off Summer 2018 with TWO covers on Harper's Bazaar UK! And she's killing it in a black Karmali leotard and a black Marina Rinaldi parka. Come through thigh action!
On the subscribers' edition cover, the new mom is all smiles on the beach in a red, black and white Dior suit.
Speaking of suits...
Rena rocked a black Nike catsuit for her first match at the French Open. And guess what? Chick won her first post-pregnancy tennis game since giving birth to her daughter Alexis Olympia Ohanian Jr.!
She beat Czech tennis player Kristyna Pliskova 7-6 (7-4), 6-4 to advance to the first round of the French Open on Tuesday (May 29th). While she looked great, she said the catsuit made her FEEL like a superhero. A superhero from Wakanda to be exact.
"I feel like a warrior in it, like a warrior princess kind of, (a) queen from Wakanda,” Serena told reporters after her win. “I'm always living in a fantasy world. I always wanted to be a superhero, and it's kind of my way of being a superhero—I feel like a superhero when I wear it."
After her match she took to her Instagram to offer up some motivational words for other new moms who are trying to snapback after pregnancy.
Serena almost lost her life after giving birth due to life threatening post-pregnancy complications, but she's BACK.
Not only is Serena killing solo, she and her sister Venus Williams are also taking names on the tennis court:
Double Trouble: In their first tournament match together in two years, @venuswilliams and @serenawilliams defeat No. 14 seeds Aoyama/Kato 4-6, 6-4, 6-1 in R1 of Roland Garros! Comment with a [arrow emoji] if you think they’ll keep moving forward in the draw! _ #usta #ustennis #venuswilliams #venus #serenawilliams #serena #rolandgarros #wta #tennis #protennis
In news outside of tennis...
They say life is about timing. I learned this lesson at age 18, when I chose to play a light tennis schedule because I wanted to go to fashion school. Some criticized my decision, but I knew I had two loves--tennis and fashion--and had to find a way to make them coexist. After 15 years of false starts, and people in fashion telling me "no," it only only drove me to work harder. As a result, I discovered what it meant to invest in myself, and I allowed that belief in myself to drive me to reach my dream. Today, I am proud to launch @serena , my own online shop. Never stop believing in yourself, you're worth it. #BeSeenBeHeard
The tennis superstar just announced her brand new clothing line dubbed, Serena. YAS! Keep showing US we can do ANYTHING we put our minds to sis!

Drake is doing some explaining after Pusha T bodied him in his lastest diss, "The Story of Adidon." Find out why Drizzy did the blackface photoshoot, plus deets on the Young Money rapper allegedly taking care of his alleged baby mama/porn star Sophie Brussaux and their alleged child inside...
We've been waiting for Drake to respond since Pusha T dropped his diss track "The Story of Adidon." Pusha T went ALL the way there on the track, accusing Drizzy of being a deadbeat dad to his secret son, not being black enough to grow an afro, and clowned him for posing in blackface for a photoshoot, amongst other things.
Now, Drake is speaking out, but he's only addressing one of King Push's allegations.
Please stop referring to this picture as “artwork”...I’m not an internet baby, I don’t edit images...this is a REAL picture...these are his truths, see for yourself https://t.co/gd6vRS3HM8pic.twitter.com/2el58HEZ8F
— King Push (@PUSHA_T) May 30, 2018
That blackface photo, taken by photographer David Leyes, went viral once Pusha T released it with the release of his diss track. Some people are up in arms that Drake would pose in blackface, but maybe they'll change their tune after they read his explanation behind the photo.
According to the former "Degrassi" actor, the picture was taken to represent how African Americans were wrongfully portrayed in entertainment.
"I know everyone is enjoying the circus but I want to clarify this image in question," Drake wrote in Notes memo posted to his Instagram Stories. By the way, folks are mad at him for explaining in a Notes memo, but folks were definitely asking him to explain, so here we are.
"This was not from a clothing brand shoot or my music career. This picture is from 2007, a time in my life where I was an actor and I was working on a project that was about young black actors struggling to get roles, being stereotyped and type cast," he continued.
"The photos represent how African Americans were once wrongfully portrayed in entertainment. Me and my best friend at the time Mazin Elsadig who is also an actor from Sudan were attempting to use our voice to bring awareness to the issues we dealt with all the time as black actors at auditions."
"This was to highlight and raise our frustrations with not always getting a fair chance in the industry and to make a point that the struggle for black actors has not changed much."
Pusha reignited their beef from 2012 when he fired a shot at the "Nice For What" rapper on his track "Infrared," a cut from his recently released album, Daytona. Then, Drizzy popped back in "Duppy Freestyle" where he clowned Pusha for rapping about a life of selling drugs that Pusha never lived. And that's when Pusha dropped "The Story of Adidon." By they way, Pusha said he has plenty of ammunition for Drizzy.
In "The Story of Adidion," Pusha alleges Drake has a baby by porn star Sophie Brussaux that he hasn't been taking care of.
However, that might not be all the way true if these new reports are accurate.
According to TMZ, the "God's Plan" rapper has been supporting Sophie and their alleged baby. Sources tell the site the rapper has been dishing out cash to Sophie to make sure she and the baby are living good.
But get this...
Drake doesn't even know if the baby is actually his! It's reported he's going to take a DNA test to be sure, but he reportedly feels like the kid could be his. Remember, Sophie spoke out claiming she was pregnant with Drake's baby in May 2017. You'll recall, this was around the time he was messing with Jennifer Lopez. It's alleged Drake and JLo called it quits in February 2017 after pics of him having dinner with Sophie in Amsterdam popped up online in January 2017.
We hear Sophie moved to back to France and spends her time as a painter. Pusha did say something along the lines of Drake needing to let his son, allegedly named Adonis Graham, "come home."
TMZ sources tell the site Drake had planned on announcing his baby on his upcoming album, but he'll likely have to figure something else out now. Pusha already spilled that "Tea."
John Legend had some words for Roseanne Barr while enjoying a lunch date with his wife Chrissy Teigen and daughter Luna Stephens. Find out all he said, plus peep coupledom shots of Gabrielle Union, Dwyane Wade, Mariah Carey and her boyfriend Bryan Tanaka inside...
Gotta love the Stephens!
John Legend and Chrissy Teigen always make time for grown up dates. And they also make sure they take their daughter Luna Stephens out for some family fun as well.
Yesterday, John, Chrissy and Luna enjoyed a lunch date at at Il Pastaio in Beverly Hills. Looks like they left baby Miles Stephens, who was born two weeks ago, at home.
How cute! The 2-year-old tot held her moms hand as they made their way to their waiting vehicle. And look at her carrying a Gucci tote bag. Chrissy is training her early.
As they pushed through the paparazzi to get into their vehicle, one photog asked John about Roseanne Barr and the racist comments she made about former White House aide Valerie Jarrett that resulted in her losing her ABC reboot series.
"Is Roseanne an idiot for saying what she said?," one of the photogs asked.
"She's a racist idiot," the R&B crooner responded.
No ties were told. Check it below:
Across the pond...
The Wades are making a splash on another #WadeWorldTour.
Braided up beauty Gabrielle Union and her NBA baller hubby Dwyane Wade have been luxuriating on a yacht as they take some down time from their busy schedules. The Wades stopped for some fun at the Monaco Formula One Grand Prix at the Circuit de Monaco.
They even linked up with Formula 1 racecar driver Lewis Hamilton, who was there to race.
Their romantic getaway included a stay at the luxurious Grand-Hotel du Cap-Ferrat in Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat, France.
"Us. Most Days. I like him #WadeWorldTour2018 @starino #AlfaNeroHijinks," Gabby captioned. Cute.
Another couple doing coupledom tings...
Mariah Carey and her boo Bryan Tanaka are still going strong. The couple enjoyed a date night at Mr. Chow restaurant in Beverly Hills for some good eats.
MiMi appeared to be in good spirits and we know one good reason why.
The Grammy Award winner reportedly sold her 35-carat engagement ring from her ex-billionaire fiancé James Packer for $2.1 million. During her night out with her boo, photogs snapped pics of her new rings, two sparkly butterfly rings on each hand. Y'all know MiMi loves butterflies.
Glad she finally got rid of the engagement ring.

Bobby Brown is pissed at Kanye West for using the photo from Whitney Houston's hotel bathroom at the time of death. He's so mad, he could fight him. More inside...
Bobby Brown is speaking out about Kanye West's usage of what he calls a "tasteless photo" that involves his late ex-wife Whitney Houston.
Last week, Pusha T unveiled the cover art for his recently released album DAYTONA. The cover art is a pic of Whitney Houston's drug infested bathroom, allegedly taken without her knowledge or consent in 2006.
Kanye reportedly paid $85K to the copyright holder to license it for Pusha's cover, despite Whitney supposedly trying hard before her death to halt the publication of the photos in the National Enquirer.
Folks were (and still are) pissed, including New Edition singer Bobby Brown, that the photo was used. And the R&B King is fed up. In so many words, Bobby said Ye needs his a** beat.
"Why would he post that on his album cover?," Bobby asked while chatting with Rolling Stone.
"That's really disgusting that he would do that," Bobby added. "That's in really bad taste. Something should happen to Kanye. He's already crazy. I knew that when I first met him. Now he's pushing the bar a little bit. He needs somebody to slap him up or something. And I'm just the person to do it."
Bloop! We doubt Yeezy wants that work from Bobby.
The DAYTONA cover art was originally going to be a different image, but Ye, who executive produced the album, scrapped it at the last minute and changed it to Whitney's bathroom.
Whitney Houston's estate issued a statement saying it was "extremely disappointed in Kanye's choice" for using the picture for an album cover. "Even in Whitney's death, we see that no one is exempt from the harsh realities of the world," Houston's estate added.
In TV news, "The Bobby Brown Story," starring Woody McClain, is set to drop this fall on BET. See the first teaser HERE.
And in music news, Kanye West will drop a new solo project tomorrow, June 1st, followed by a collaborative album with Kid Cudi on June 8. Are you copping either project?
Logan Browning and Kiersey Clemons are out in these streets on the promo trail for their respective projects. See flicks of the YBF ladies inside...
Logan Browning has been making waves as the lead star of Netflix's "Dear White People" series which just released its 2nd season. And when she's not filming witty scenes for the show, she's hitting up events for press.
The 28-year-old sat on a panel at Netfix's FYSEE's Comediennes in Conversation held at Raleigh Studios in LA. The YBF starlet joined a group of Netflix stars, including Gillian Jacobs, June Diane Raphael and Justina Machado, and panel moderator Jessica Radloff to chat about the ins and outs of their respective comedies.
Not to tell too much about the new series, in the first episode Logan's character Sam stays up for days clapping back at Twitter trolls. In an interview with Harper's Bazaar, Logan was asked if she felt Sam and other black women in general feel the need to suppress their pain in today’s black feminist movement. Here's what she said:
"I think black women feel an obligatory pressure to be stronger than everybody else, not necessarily to suppress the pain. We have historically been the caretakers for everybody, and it’s really #TimesUp on that. It’s a huge part of who we are, but I think that in Season 2 especially, you get to see most of the black female characters have a moment where they’re unsure. I think that’s brilliant to show the flaws in black women. It’s important to show that we’re human. We’re strong, we’re beautiful, and we’re goddesses; but we deserve a moment to breathe too. We deserve a moment to express that pain, the pain that I don’t think people want to acknowledge that we have."
Possible spoiler ahead...
The former "Hit The Floor" actress also opened up about the sisterhood she shares with her circle of friends and how they were there for her when he dad passed away in real life.
"I lost my father a couple of years ago, right before I turned 25 and I had big plans for my birthday. My girlfriends from Georgia were coming to LA right after my birthday because we were going to Vegas for one of their bachelorette parties. I remember being so stressed about the fact that I had this big birthday bash coming up. I called my mom and asked her what I was supposed to do. She said, 'Your dad would want you to enjoy your life and accept the love.' So that’s really what I leaned into"
"The day my dad died, my girlfriends came over with coffee, wine, food and said, 'Whatever you want to do, that’s what we’re going to do.' They did this without my asking, too, because I’m such an independent person. I don’t like anybody in my way. I felt so much love. I felt supported, like I didn’t have to do it all on my own. So, I [struggled with] the episode, but I embraced it and the women in Sam’s life, even Coco, who she's constantly at odds with but respects and loves. That’s black female sisterhood."
Aww! This is why black female sisterhood is so important.
MTV News sat down with "Dear White People" creator Justin Simien recently where he explained how he changed up his approach to bring something fresh this season:
I just really wanted to outdo ourselves. I felt like the reception for Season 1 was so great, and it would have been really easy for us to rest on our laurels and churn out the same thing. But I get bored easily. I think I have ADD or something. Also, I felt like there was a sense of urgency to all these conversations that was unique to the time we were making the show. I just wanted to kick it up a notch on every level, from the title cards to the makeup to the kinds of stories we were telling. And also because we introduced everybody in Season 1 it gave us the opportunity to dive deeper into them.
With several characters, like Lionel and Reggie, they had these moments last season that in most shows would have been the end of it. When a character comes out, they usually are suddenly fine. They're gay and excited and have a boyfriend. And if someone undergoes the kind of trauma that Reggie experiences in Season 1, they just kind of bounce back. But the truth of it is that you don't just move on. These are the beginnings of a complicated, messy journey that the two of them have to continue.
You can read the rest of his interview (with tons of spoilers) here.
Speaking of characters named Sam...
Kiersey Clemons is gearing up to star in a new family drama titled Hearts Beat Loud. She'll play a high school senior named Sam who reluctantly starts a band with her dad (played by Nick Offerman) the summer before she leaves for college. The 24-year-old has been making her rounds in NYC on the promo trail.
Peep the trailer below:
Hearts Beat Loud hits theaters next Friday, June 8th.
