The first Nappily Ever After trailer is here, and it has us ready to run to our stylist for some scissor therapy. Check it inside, plus Jill Scott's new gig.
Sanaa Lathan is pulling doubly duty with the upcoming Nappily Ever After flick hitting Netflix next month. She's starring as Violet Jones in the hit novel's adaptation and also is serving as producer, so you know it's going to be done right.
In the film, Violet has a seemingly perfect life — a high-powered job, an eligible doctor boyfriend and a meticulously maintained, flawless coiffure. But after a life-changing event doesn’t go according to her plan, and a hair-raising incident at the hairdresser, her life begins to unravel. Eventually, Violet realizes that she was living the life she thought she was supposed to live, not the one she really wanted.
After her man doesn't propose and a little girl at the hairdresser checks her about how much money she's spending on her hair, we see the evolution of what perfection really means take place. And it's inspiring as all hell.
Hotties Ricky Whittle and Lyriq Bent star as her love interests and Lynn Whitfield as her mother. Check it:
"My hair was like a second job. Now I'm forced to focus on myself. I wonder who I'll be."
*Drops a stack in the collection plate.* Preach sis.
We're counting down the days until this premieres globally on Netflix, September 21, 2018. Cocktails and clippers party, anyone?
In other tv & movie news:
We were already excited for the "First Wives Club" reboot, now we're definitely not missing this. Jill Scott and comedian/"Brad City" star Michelle Buteau just signed on to the upcoming 10-episode series remake of the 1966 classic movie First Wives Club.
Deadline breaks down how the reboot will play out:
The First Wives Club series, like the film which starred Diane Keaton, Bette Midler and Goldie Hawn, will be based in New York City. It follows three women, Ari, Bree (Buteau) and Hazel (Scott) who band together after their marriages fall apart, and who find strength in their sisterhood- and of course a little revenge.
Jill's character is going from lack of confidence after divorce to wreaking havoc. Sounds a lot like her character in Why Did I Get Married? The site dishes:
Scott’s Hazel is a gorgeous music superstar who has faded from the limelight and lost the confidence she once had. She has a raw talent and a killer voice that’s been silenced by her husband/manager Sean for years. When she realizes that he’s been unfaithful in both business and marriage, she is ready to wreak havoc and assert her artistic identity.
Buteau’s Bree is an overwhelmed mom and doctor who hasn’t let loose in years. She is fiercely loyal and committed, so when her husband cheats on her, she is deeply betrayed and not ready to forgive. With the help of Hazel and Ari, she learns to harness her sexual energy and break out of her shell.
Here for it. Filming starts in New York City this fall for a 2019 premiere on Paramount Network.
Things are back to messy on the upcoming 6th season of “Married to Medicine”. Check out the first preview inside...
"Married to Medicine" returns with friendships and marriages on the line with cast members Dr. Jacqueline Walters, Dr. Simone Whitmore, Dr. Heavenly Kimes, Toya Bush-Harris, Quad Webb-Lunceford, Dr. Contessa Metcalfe. Mariah Huq is also back, but this time as a full time cast member.
In the trailer, we see Quad get "deep and dangerous" breaking down sobbing over her husband Dr. G. Apparently, she caught him with another woman (again?).
“I saw my husband last night dancing in the club with another woman in my m—erf—ing face,” Quad says, in tears. “Why would my husband do that to me?”
“I come home, my goddamn sleep number was missing,” Dr. Greg told the fellas.
Not the Sleep Number bed! Apprently, she took all the furniture out the house - maybe into a secret apartment - and moved into the guest room.
We also see more cheating accusations from another couple, Dr. Heavenly getting to the bottom of her anger, and Mariah still trying to figure out why the crew continues to come for her. Also, there's a choking scare with one of the kiddies. Check out more of what's set to go down below.
Dr. Jackie and Curtis are on the path to healing their marriage and rebuilding trust, as they are back on the market looking for their perfect home together.
Dr. Simone and Cecil have removed the divorce papers off the table, and are working towards moving back in together and being each other’s better halves.
Toya and Eugene have put their tax issues behind them, and their love lives back in check. They will celebrate their ten year wedding anniversary, and this year it’s more important than ever.
Dr. Heavenly’s dental practice is booming as she continues her spiritual journey and seeks the expertise of an anger management therapist to help her understand her anger. Heavenly believes she not only needs to talk the talk, but also walk the walk.
Since last season Quad has moved…into the guest bedroom, and things are progressively tense between her and Dr. G. Quad is also laser focused on her career as a successful talk show host, and feels like there is a wedge between the friendships she once knew with the ladies.
Contessa has finally found the balance she was seeking when it comes to raising her kids, but she is also focused on her health and takes careful measures to prevent breast cancer after a family member gets a critical diagnosis.
Mariah Huq is back and living her best life. On the home front, Mariah is navigating being a mother to a teenage daughter and taking special care of her marriage with Aydin, but when an unexpected health scare shakes up the family, the couple gets even closer than ever. Will all of these ladies be able to get their personal lives and friendships on track?
“Married to Medicine” season six premieres Sunday, September 2nd at 8 PM ET/PT. We'll be watching...and judging.
Tiffany Haddish opens up about being raped by a police cadet at the age of 17. That experience changed her view on men and how she interacted with them. More inside...
Tiffany Haddish is known for cracking jokes and keeping a smile on her face. But, she recently opened up about a dark time in her past that has affected the way she interacts with men.
The Girls Trip star graces the cover of GLAMOUR magazine's September 2018 issue where she opens up about being sexually assulted in her cover story. It seems, celebs are speaking out more and more about their past sexual assaults as the #METOO movement put rape culture on front street. As it should.
“That whole experience put me in such a messed-up place for a long time, and I ended up going to counseling,” she opened up.
"The Last O.G." star said she reported the incident, however, it still bothers her. And without a plan, she's just not going to be talking about it just to be talking.
“Me just yelling out people’s names with no thought behind it is pointless. I need a plan,” she shared. “I could be a voice, but what’s a voice going to do—just keep talking? Or is there action behind it?”
She said after the experience, it changed her behavior around men to keep them away from her.
“I notice that men are afraid of women that are aggressive. So to protect myself I become semi-aggressive,” she explained. “You hear about, ‘Tiffany always hitting on somebody,’ but that’s to keep them from hitting on me.”
The 38-year-old actress is not totally afraid of men as she was married and divorced. The actress parted ways with her ex-husband William Stewart in 2013. There have been rumors that he physically abused her during their marriage, but he has denied it. And he's suing her.
While she keeps a smile on her face, she hasn't shied away from details about her troubled past. In her memoir "The Last Black Unicorn,"she talked about growing up with an abusive mother who had mental health issues. She also opened up about growing up in the foster care system and being molested by one of her foster days.
As for what's shaking in her love life now?
“I don’t really have time. And I’ve had enough somebodies,” she noted. “I done ran through 38 dudes, OK? Body count, yeah. Mine is 38. Write it down. Let them know. I’ve had 38 experiences.”
No filter. Ever.
You can read the Night School star's full interview here.
You never know what a person is going through or have been through, which is why he should practice spreading more love and less hate. What's crazy is that folks are on social media saying she "talks too much" after reading about her story:
Black woman gotta do better. Talking bout Tiffany haddish “talk to much” so they don’t believe her coming out about her rape from a police officer. That’s sad
— Jason Bass (@1Respect_jb) August 1, 2018
y'all saying Tiffany Haddish "talk too much" when she's literally opening up about being a rape survivor is disgusting. I didn't see that shit for anyone else. Y'all really hate Black women huh. https://t.co/3DGBAom2oQ

Slim Thug is sharing his two cents about Ciara and Russell Wilson's relationship that no one asked for. Find out what he had to say...
Apparently, Slim Thug must believe he's a relationship expert of some sort because he def has more than enough things to say about Ciara and Russell Wilson's romance.
The (former? - does he still rap?) Houston rapper stopped by the studio of 97.9 The Box to give his opinion on the singer literally leveling UP from rapper Future to marrying the Super Bowl winning Seattle Seahawks quarterback.
It's unclear how The Wilsons became the topic of discussion, but Slim Thug didn't mind dishing what he THINKS about their relationship.
“Do a woman who used to talk to Future really want a Russell Wilson?” he asked. “I don’t believe it I think it’s all for financial stability.” Excuse me? So, Ciara doesn't have her own coins? Have a seat sir.
CiCi and Futurecalled it quits in 2015 after cheating rumors surfaced. The two had gotten engaged in 2013 and welcomed their son, Future Wilburn in 2014. Soon after, the "Level Up" singer got involved with Russell Wilson and it's been nothing but #RelationshipGoals since. They started dating in 2015, got married in 2016 and welcomed baby Sienna Wilson in 2017.
As great as that all sounds, Slim Thug said he's still not convinced. He feels like CiCi couldn't possibly want someone like Russell, who he dubbed as "corny," after dealing with a street dude like Future.
"No hate, I bought his shoes the other day…I’m just saying I have no personal issue with him, or her, God Bless them. He’s just a corny dude, ain’t nothing wrong with it,” Thug says. “I ain’t gonna say corny cause that’s hatin’ but he’s just like a square...I don’t believe a girl coming from a street dude could even adapt to that.”
Sir, it's called MATURITY. People grow and when they do, they want and need different things in life. Since when has there been a rule that you can't change your preference? Dude is reaching.
Not only that, since splitting from Future it's been hell for Ciara. The singer and rapper were in and out of court over custody of Future and they both pulled the trigger of libel/defamation lawsuits. The custody case has been resolved, but Future looks to sneak in petty moments when he can. Like that time he dropped his Beast Mode 2 mixtape on Ciara and Russell's wedding anniversary this year (July 6th).
Then, the Houston rapper backtracked on his earlier "financial stability" comment by saying she's not a gold digger. However, he still doesn't believe their relationship is the real deal.
“I ain’t gonna say shes a gold digger, because she got her own, but at the end of the day I don’t believe it’s real."
Boy, BYE. Ciara is living her BEST LIFE, f*ck boi free! When you know better, you do better. Simple as that. Folks hate when women intentionally marry their equal.
Check out the clips from his radio interview below:
The homie says it's all love with dangerusswilson on the show this morning, but he just doesn't believe a woman like ciara goes from a guy like future to the QB in the natural order of things. Do you agree or disagree? #themostinterestingmanonradio #thugromance #nfl #russellwilson #ciara #blacklove #relationships #maddhattamorningshow
Oddly enough, Future tweets this out today:
She not wife material. Can’t u tell

Another reason Ciara made the right decision.
Dame Dash wants the world to know Lyor Cohen is nothing more than a culture vulture, especially after he went on Power 105's "The Breakfast Club" and threw hella shade. Deets inside...
Dame Dash has never been one to hold his tongue and he isn't going to start any time soon.
Yesterday, veteran music executive Lyor Cohen appeared on Power 105's "The Breakfast Club" where he was asked why he hired artists who encourage drug use and have drug addictions. In so many words, he said he has to eat. Hmph.
Radio personality Charlamagne Tha God mentioned Dame Dash would end up calling him out for that statement and that's when the Mariah Carey "I Don't Know Her" shade came out.
"Who’s Dame Dash?," the former head of Def Jame Recordings/current YouTube Global Head of Music said. "I don't even know him. You're bringing his name up. I don’t even know him," Lyor said.
Peep the clip below:
— The Breakfast Club (@breakfastclubam) August 1, 2018
Wait...what? Does Roc-A-Fella Records not ring a bell? Because they certainly were under the Def Jam umbrella. And that's surely him and Dame all smiles above.
As expected, Dame responded and took his lashing to social media. He reposted the clip of Lyor saying he didn't know him with a caption dubbing the music exec a "liar" and a "culture vulture." He then goes on to explain exactly why Lyor Cohen is eating off the Hip Hop community, but really doesn't give a ****.
"I been trying to warn you about this #culturevulture clown for years," he wrote. "He tries to make us believe he’s better then us but he’s a lame...trust me I know...he’s a cheater and isn’t respected by his own kind so he fronts on us...he personally fucked shit up cause we were bigger then him...you know how they do..classic culturevulture shit...divide and conquer.... his business model is keep us dumb...and take our money and feeds his family and laugh at us behind our back.
Oh, and he made sure to post a picture of himself, Jay Z and Lyor Cohen during the Roc-A-Fella days.

Tell us how you really feel Dame!
You can check out Lyor Cohen's full interview below, where he also talks about almost signing Drake and more:
EA Sports is MAD SHADY! The sports video game company issued an apology for removing Colin Kaepernick's name off a track that's on the new Madden '19 game. Of course, they didn't apologize until after Big Sean called them out. More inside...
The blatant disrespect towards Colin Kaepernick CONTINUES. "They" hate when a black man (yes, we know he's biracial) stands up for himself and his community, don't they?
So here's what happened...
Rapper YG recorded a song titled "Big Bank" that is set to appear on the upcoming Madden NFL 19 video game. He tapped Big Sean to be featured on the track and the Detroit native gave a shoutout to former 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick.
However, EA Sports went in and censored his name off of the track along with the record's profanity, racial slurs and drug references.
Take a listen:
— Mr. Changing Lives (@jeanclervil) August 2, 2018
Big Sean's lyric was supposed to say: “Feed me to the wolves, now I lead the pack and shit. You boys all cap, I'm more Colin Kaepernick." Once the "I Don't F*** With You" rapper got word about it, he hopped on Twitter to call out EA Sports and made it known he did NOT approve the version that's currently on the game:
It’s disappointing and appalling @NFL& @EA took @Kaepernick7’s name out of my verse on Big Bank for Madden 19, like it was a curse word. When he's not a curse, he's a gift! Nobody from my team approved any of this.
— Sean Don (@BigSean) August 2, 2018
YG also responded to the track, saying he didn't know about the censorship either:
— Mr. Changing Lives (@jeanclervil) August 2, 2018
And he also made a video talking about it:
"EA Sports, NFL, whoever — y'all owe me, Big Sean, 2 Chainz, Nicki Minaj, and the homie Kaepernick and an apology"
— SB Nation (@SBNation) August 3, 2018
Kap's girlfriend/HOT 97 personality Nessa also hopped on Twitter to repost the clip and called EA Sports shady:
We're talking colorism with actor Lance Gross and actress Deynce Lawton today. Let's discuss inside...
Yesterday, actor Lance Gross posted an innocent picture of his newborn son Lennon, but it quickly turned into a colorism debate in the comments section of his Instagram account, spinning off his own words about his baby's complexion.
Lennon is literally less than a month old and he's already tangled up in some social media colorism drama. His dad shared the picture above with the caption, "LL Kool G my little man’s color is comin’ in nicely! I’m hyped!"
It's also not the first time he's mentioned skin complexion in reference to himself or his family.
It didn't take long for folks to scold him for perpetuating colorism and many users asked if he was so concerned with his son having "color," why didn't he make a woman with a darker skin complexion his wife and mother of his kids. So, he made another post to respond to the backlash in his previous post.
“Two things I am proud of is the ability to smile through any situation and the rich melanin and layers my body,” he wrote. “For my daughter or son to share that blessing makes me overjoyed. Miss me with the self-hate cause those assumptions are invalid. I love me more than anyone else."
He also made it clear that his wife, Rebecca Jefferson, is actually African-American. It indeed sparked an eons-long debate about whether brown-skin black men, and the black community in general, often put lightskin, biracial, "exotical" (as the rappers OFTEN rap about) features on a pedastal. Lance is often praised for his chocolately brown sex appeal, but many black women of the same hue aren't praised for the same or are overlooked in many ways because of it.
There's been plenty of debates around people of color who choose partners who are just (insert race here) enough to be able to say they have a black partner, but the person also has many of the european or exotic features they love as well. And some folks seem to think Lance might fall under this category.
Rebecca's mother is reportedly white, and her father is black Sci-Fi actor icon Herbert Jefferson, Jr. There were several comments that alluded Lance prefers light-skinned women based on the appearance of his wife. He said he chose love, not "skin tone."
“Colorism exists, yes, but y’all not about to label every dark skin Black man who is in a relationship with someone lighter complexion under that bus. I chose love not skin tone,” he explained.
Valid point, especially since he recognized colorism does, in fact, exist. Some often act as if it is some foreign concept that never, ever occurs.
Several folks on Twitter have their own opinions (from both sides) about Lance and his colorism talk:
lol @lancegross is such a colorstruck dumb self-hating kneegrow. This is the dumbest caption ever. If you wanted to have a child with your full ACTUAL dark skinT complexion then you wouldn't have procreated with an extra light skinT MIXED race woman. @ChrissiesWaypic.twitter.com/UbizigWqm2
— Sara (@Saaaa_hot) August 2, 2018
I LOVE Lance Gross. He is sweet, humble and gorgeous. But he is not fooling anybody with this dissertation on how he loves himself and glad his kids have color.
— Peaches_n_Herbs (@HerbsPeaches) August 2, 2018
For the lance gross situation y’all stay complaining y’all at least she black y’all dtm if she was white y’all would complain but the woman is black and yalllll still complaining cuz she light gtfo y’all hoes annoying
— KB (@MeaLorene) August 2, 2018
Y’all really in Lance Gross mentions over him being happy about his son’s dark skin complexion aka him supporting the notion that dark skin is lit aka him amping his son all because his wife is mixed and light skin. Y’all different and weird. pic.twitter.com/RxlTcWTCOL
— Maxamillion (@RegalBasil) August 2, 2018
In 2015, Lance and Rebecca tied the knotin Beverly Hills after dating for years. They first welcomed their daughter Berkeley Brynn Gross in 2014 and they just welcomed their son Lennon Lorin Gross last month right after Lance's birthday.
Are people making a big deal out of nothing or do they make valid points?
Speaking of colorism...here's a twist...
Biracial actress Denyce Lawton, who's African-American and Korean is sick and tired of colorism, specifically, people of color who bash biracial women. The actress posted a meesage on social media asking black men and women to stop "shaming" biracial women. She wants the same energy folks have claiming biracial men ARE black for her and her counterparts.
In her post, she wrote, "COLORISM Must STOP! Dear Fellow Black Women & Men, please stop color shaming biracial women. Where's the same energy when you claim & praise the Barack Obama's of the world? So only biracial black men are considered REAL BLACK people? Why not biracial or lighter women? Why? Knock it off! Your hatred looks like self hate!"
So, people haven't caped ENOUGH for biracial women? Bi-racial people are in fact, black. No one with sense debates that. But is that what colorism is actually about?
We all have struggles, and it's important to note colorism has always been a tool to use against people - of any race - of darker complexions.
Sound off below.

We've been obsessed with the low key shady "Four Weddings" since the get, now it's back and 4 black brides with sorority life in common are facing off. Grab your judge-y popcorn, we've got an exclusive sneak peek...
There's always that one bride who purposely is hating on your wedding day glow up, so she rates your designer dress a whole 4 when she had the sheer audacity to serve dinner on paper plates at her own wedding. We live for the shady antics on "Four Weddings." Like, sis. Really?
Now, it's all back. Including the nice-nastiness.
The new season, which now gives us 2 hour-episodes of guilty pleasure wedding shade, now features women who are all friends in real life who are all getting married around the same time. As usual, they will evaluate each other’s weddings based on six categories: venue, food, dress, entertainment, originality and overall experience. The bride with the highest score will win an all-expenses-paid honeymoon for herself and her husband.
Tomorrow night, we're meeting (from l-r above) Carissa, Kaala, Lonnie and Raquel - four women who are members of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. and Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. who met several years ago at the Texas Sorority Picnic and have been great friends ever since.
Here's what's going down:
Bound together by their Sisterhood, four Sorority friends face off for the chance to win an exotic honeymoon to a dream destination. Lonnie wants her big day to be Fit for a Diva, with her décor draped in pure white fabulousness, while Raquel’s dream is to marry her Prince Charming in a fairy tale theme wedding. Carissa’s vision is Southern Belle with a splash of glam and Kaala departs from tradition by having jumpsuits for her bridesmaids, and a blouse and trousers for her reception outfit. All four brides believe their wedding is perfect, but which one will jet off on the honeymoon of a lifetime?
Check out the exclusive sneak peek look below:
The “…and Sorority Sisters” episode airs Saturday, August 4 at 9/8c on TLC.
A few musical icons gathered up their kiddies for Harper's Bazaar's icon issue. See Kanye West, Erykah Badu, Mariah Carey and Lionel Richie with their mini-me's inside...
Harper's Bazaar does an ICON issue annually, but this year they switched it up a bit.
The magazine tapped some of the greatest musical artists of our time for a collection of covers that features them and their children. Aww.
Nine musical icons were selected to be featured in the September 2018 issue, including Kanye West, Erykah Badu, Mariah Carey, Lionel Richie, Christina Aguilera, Bruce Springsteen, Theodora Richards and more for creative director Carine Roitfeld's "Icons: The First Families Of Music" issue.
On one cover, Kanye is in daddy mode snapping it up with his 5-year-old daughter North West and 2-year-old Saint West. Baby Chicago was noticably missing, but maybe she was too young. For the cover, 'Ye opened up about his deepest desire for his kids.
"I hope my children never lose their confidence to society," he shared.
Love that. It's nice to see a black man on the cover of a magazine with his children being that we don't get that often. Yes, he's still cancelled, but we still appreciate the representation for black fathers.
Soulful songstress Erykah Badu was joined by her gorgeous daughters Mars and Puma (sans her son Seven) for a somber mother-daughter flick, shot by Mario Sorrenti (he did all of the covers). Ms. Badu wants her children to be servicemen for the less fortunate.
“I want my children to use their gifts in order to do service for others. That is, to make sure that their gifts are serving something bigger than themselves. And to do what I say," she said.
Ha! Not even mad.
Mariah Carey and her 7-year-old twins Moroccan and Monroe were all smiles for their cover. MiMi dished on why her family is her No. 1 priority in life.
"Family is the most important thing to me,” she shared. “My children have provided me with such joy as they’ve developed their own unique personalities.”
She's not lying either. Remember when she had them in tow for her "Sweet Sweet Fantasy" Tour?
She added, “Moroccan has a knack for technology, and Monroe is really musical. They’re each other’s best friends, and I love watching them grow up.”
Legend singer Lionel Richie, who went on tour with Mariah Carey last year, is also featured in the special issue with his daughter/reality star Nicole Richie. Maybe his daughter Sofia was busy with Scott Disick and his son Miles was booked for another modeling gig. However, he wishes the same for them all.
"I wish for my kids to discover who they are and explore their passions to the fullest," he shared.
The Harper's Bazaar September Icons issue hits newsstands on August 21st.

Lil Rel Howery dropped some nuggest about pushing comedic boundaries at the FOX TCAs before hitting the afterparty with Angela Bassett, Jussie Smollet and more. More inside...
Actor Lil Rel Howery has been making waves in Hollywood starring a few of our fave shows like "Insecure" and "The Carmichael Show" (R.I.P.). And he also did his thing in Jordan Peele's Get Out.
Now, he's gearing up to bring the laughs in his very own show, "Rel," where he brings his real life experiences to our televisions. He has teamed up with his former co-star Jerrod Carmichael, who will serve as executive producer of the show, and they are ready to bring some comedy to FOX while touching on real-world issues. And NOTHING is off limits.
The show centers around Lil Rel after finding out his wife is having an affair with his barber. Fans will see Lil Rel try to rebuild his life post-divorce as a single father living on the west side of Chicago.
“We’ll try to bring the truth but with a different perspective,” Jerrod Carmichael said during FOX's Summer Television Critics Association event.
“We got a #HeToo episode,” joked Lil Rel. Hmm...tread carefully.
So, how political will "Rel" get? It seems as much (or as little) as they want it to get.
“I don’t think anything is too sensitive to be analyzed or explored, especially when you approached it like a human being," Jerrod explained.
It sounds like this show is going to have folks talking once it premieres.
Sinbad, who will star on the show as Lil Rel's dad, revealed the show will be touching on several controversial topics that many of us can relate to.
“We talk about age and skin color,” said Sinbad. “It’s the duty of comedy to touch about those things that people don’t want to talk about. You can sneak a punch in through comedy — I’m going to have you deal with it — and the conversation opens up.”
He's right. Let's hope FOX doesn't censor them like ABC tried to do with Kenya Barris and his NFL/national anthem protest episode for "black-ish."
A special preview of "Rel" will debut on Sunday, September 9th after NFL on FOX. Y'all ready? This could get interesting.

Season 2 of "Snowfall" is currently airing on FX (which is owned by FOX).
Hollywood queen Angela Bassett served up melanin goodness when she hit the carpet before making her rounds at the party.

5-year-old Nigerian beauty Jare Ijalana has been dubbed the Most Beautiful In The World and she's absolutely stunning! More inside...
Black is beautiful! We've known this forever and mainstream media is starting to slowly catch on.
5-year-old Jare Ijalana is taking social media by storm with a few effortless photos that are flooding our timelines. The Nigerian model has been dubbed the "Most Beautiful In The World" by PEOPLE magazine and that's a huge deal!
Finally, they're starting to catch on.
Jare began making waves on social media after photographer Mofe Bamuyiwa shared a series of editorials featuring the young beauty. People were so mesmorized by her doll-like features that they questioned if she was real or not.
“Oh yes she’s human! She’s also an angel!” the Lagos camerawoman captioned one of the portraits of Jare.
“I want to portray the interception between her childhood and adulthood so both stay timeless!” Bamuyiwa captioned."I could have made her smile and make her laugh out loud but I put her in their natural moments for us to see through their eyes!”
“Posing them as adults was my trick to create it a timeless portrait! Jare, when you clock 21 remember to do same pose and style," she added.
Oh yes she’s human ! She’s also an angel ! “J A R E “ I want to portray the interception between her childhood and adulthood so both stay timeless !

“All I want is for everyone to see Jare’s powerful potential,” Bamuyiwa told Yahoo Lifestyle. “I want the photo to speak to her when she has reached her adulthood.”

We've got some new tunes to get you through this YBF Weekend. Go inside for new muisc from Ella Mai and H.E.R., get the latest on Nicki Minaj's QUEEN album, see Lil Kim's new "Nasty One" visuals and more...
Ella Mai has been killing the radio air waves with her infectious hit single "Boo'd Up," skyrocketing to the No. 5 spot on Billboard's Hot 100. Now, she has a new single that will hopefully follow in the footsteps of her first hit.
After getting "Boo'd Up," the British singer is now madly in love with the man she's in a relationship with on her new sultry track, "Trip." The singer released the new track right before headlining her own tour, which is slated to kick off on August 6th in Dallas.
Along with the release of her new single, she also released a personal message about the track. She thanked everyone for all of the support of her "Boo'd Up" song. She said she released "Trip" because it was important she put out new music before she head out on tour.
"Trip. Sometimes we misinterpret. Sometimes we don't understand. Sometimes we make mistakes. It doesn't always make sense at the time, but it's all a life lesson. Awareness is key. My bad for tripping on you. Trip. Tripping on you," she said in the clip.
Fall in love with Ella Mai's "Trip" below:
Sounds like she has another hit on her hands.
Ella Mai's debut album should be dropping soon. Stay tuned.
In other new music...
H.E.R. just gifted her fans a six-track EP titled, I Used to Know Her: The Prelude. And it's fire!
The soulful songstress, who's currently on tour with Chris Brown, pulls a Lauryn Hill, rapping on her the DJ Scratch assisted "Lost Souls." She pays homage to L. Boogie by sampling her classic track "Lost Ones." She teams up with Bryson Tiller on her track "Could've Been," which goes through the motions of a failed relationship. It's the first musical project from the singer since releasing her self-titled album last year.
Take a listen to "Lost Souls" and "Could've Been" below:
I Used to Know Her: The Prelude is now streaming on all major platforms, or you can check out each track on her YouTube account here.
In other music news....
Nicki Minaj's QUEEN album has been pushed back yet again! After sharing with fans that she ran into a few last minute sample clearance issues, the Head Barb delayed the release of her four studio album from August 10th to August 17th. It was originally supposed to be released on June 15th. So yeah, this is the third set back since she announced the album on the carpet at the Met Gala in May.
The "Chun-Li" rapper made the announcement via her Apple Music Essentials playlist, an attempt to give her fans something to hold them over until she drops her forthcoming LP. Below is her announcement:
My darlings!!! I have a huge surprise that I can't share until the day before #Queen drops. So in the meantime, check out this playlist I made for you guys. I did #FEFE with my new BFF from BROOKLYN. He's a little funny looking but he's really sweet under all those tats. New York til da DEF!!!! Ha! Last time I teamed up with YG was for his remix to “My Hitta.” We recently performed #BigBank at the BET Awards and had a blast wit my dudes Big Sean and 2 Chainz. I have classic bops with all 3 of them so I'm including them on this list. I'm super excited about my recent collaboration with Ariana Grande. She's one of the realest artists I've had the pleasure of working with. She couldn't fly with me to Turks to shoot the #BedVideo so we shot her scenes in Malibu. We're actually working on edit number 2 for the #BedVideo to include all the fun stuff we had to remove. I love “Ball For Me” with Post Malone. Not sure why he won't release the video. It's DOPE!!! I hope you enjoy my playlist. Can't wait for you guys to hear my 4th album QUEEN ON AUGUST 17!!!!!!!
A few days ago, Nicki hopped on Twitter asking her Barbz if she should release the album without one song (due to clearance issues) or push the album back to have the song featured on the project. The final results reveal her fanbase is equally split on what she should do. She ultimately chose to push the album back and promised they're going to love it.
Since I may have asked it wrong. vote. You guys can only imagine how much this means to me. It’s such a perfect body of work love you. Long time.
— Chun-Li (@NICKIMINAJ) August 1, 2018
By the way, her friend/"Bed" collaborator Ariana Grande will be releasing her Sweetener album on the same day as Nicki drops QUEEN.
Speaking of female rappers...
A few weeks ago, Lil Kim released the first single from her upcoming album, "Nasty One," giving fans some seductive wordplay on the West Indian-meets-Brooklyn track. And she dropped it on her birthday.
Now, she has unveiled the visuals for the track. Kimmy oozes sex appeal as she splashes around in a pool and lays out on in flatable clam as if she's the pearl at the center.
Kim described her new video to Complex saying,"The single instantly reminds me of when I use to go to the underground clubs as a teenager. I naturally wanted the video to reflect that with the super sexy Caribbean vibe, vivid colors and the dancing.” She continued, “When my fans watch the video, I want them to ultimately jump up and groove with it.”
Jump up and groove with the NYC raptress above.

Donald Trump had the audacity to attack LeBron James and Don Lemon's intelligence via Twitter. You know, how kids do nowadays when they're angry. More inside...
We assume Melania Trump wasn't giving her husband Donald Trump enough attention last night because he was busy firing off tweets on Twitter, attacking two black men, one of whom just opened a new public school for at-risk children.
Four days after LeBron's CNN interview with Don Lemon aired, 45 decided to issue a response in a late night tweet Friday night. He called Don the "dumbest man on television" and that the interview made the Los Angeles Laker baller "look smart."
The "I Like Mike" comment seem to be a reference to the debate on who's the greatest NBA star of all time, Michael Jordan vs. LeBron James.
This sounds like a angry child on the school yard. Is he mad LeBron called him out on his ish?! The thing is, no lies were told when the four-time NBA MVP spoke about his antics.
Earlier this week, LeBron sat down with Don to talk about opening his brand new I Promise School, a public school a part of the Akron Public School system, and what it meant to him. He didn't shy away on how sports and politics have intertwined since race topics have been at the forefront of many discussions going on.
“We’re in a position right now in America where this race thing is taking over," he said. "One, because I believe our president is kind of trying to divide us. What I’ve noticed over the last few months is that he’s kind of used sports to kind of divide us, and that’s something that I can’t relate to because I know that sports was the first time that I was around someone white."
Where is the lie?
King James has yet to respond to 45 (as of the time of this post), but Don sure did. And clapped back like we hoped he would:
Ha! The #BeBest hashtag was in reference to Melania's initiative to support kindness and respect. The irony of it all.
Also, former White House photographer Pete Souza NEVER lets us down when it comes to shading 45 and he didn't disappoint this time either:
Thought this throwback photograph from President Obama’s 49th birthday was an appropriate one to wish him a happy birthday today. And now he and LeBron have something in common—being the recipient of racist and bullying tweets from the current president. Oh, and both of them like Mike. #throwshadethenvote @kingjames
Gotta love Twitter. Here are a few old tweets of Trump praising LeBron in the past below:

Meghan Markle turned 37 yesterday and she spent it celebrating with her husband Prince Harry. Meanwhile, Meghan's half-sister Samantha Markle still won't let her live...even on her birthday. Deets inside...
It was all love for Meghan Markle on her birthday...at least on one side of the pond.
The Duchess of Sussex celebrated her 37th birthday yesterday, totally surrounded by love as she and her husband Prince Harry attended a wedding together.
The couple stepped out to attend a wedding ceremony for one of Harry's oldest family friends, Charlie va Straubenzee, who married his girlfriend Daisy Jenks inside St Mary the Virgin Church in Surrey, England on Saturday (August 4th).
It's her first birthday as an official royal.
After the Duke and Duchess of Sussez arrive at the church separately, the newlyweds were spotted holding hands as they made their way inside the church for the wedding festivities. Despite reports, Harry did not serve as a groomsman, however he did participate in the usher duties.
The Duchess wore a black, white, pink and olive color-block pleated Club Monaco dress styled with black Aquazzura pumps, a Kayu clutch and a black Philp Treacy fascinator to top it off.
While Meghan was living her best life on her birthday, her salty half-sister Samantha Markle is STILL throwing shade, comparing her sister to Disney's 101 Dalmatians villain Cruella de Vil. Sighs...
First, she called Meghan out for not telling their father, Thomas Markle, Happy Birthday last month.
"Happy Birthday Meg! It would be so lovely and appropriate of you to send DAD a BELATED birthday card for his July 18th [cake emoji] @KensingtonRoyal Cheers!" Samantha tweeted from a private account on Friday.
That's not all. Samantha shared an Elle article that said there were rumors that Meghan and Harry were "stepping away from the media spotlight," in which she added a caption comparing her sister to Cruella de Vil. In another tweet (screenshot by The Evening Standard), she nicknamed her sister "witchy poo."
Does this woman not have anything better to do?
Speaking of Meghan's dad, there are rumors circulating that she may be planning a visit to reunite with her dad in an effort to "heal their rift."
The Mirror reports:
She aims to meet Thomas, 74, on a solo visit to America later this month to try to heal their rift, a source revealed.
Meghan is said to be poised to complete the secret showdown in the US in three weeks.
A source claims Thomas, 74 – who pulled out of the Royal Wedding on health grounds two months ago – is understood to be “keeping two dates free at the end of the month” to meet his daughter.
Friends believe it could be the first move to end the heartbreaking family rift which has plagued the Duchess of Sussex since her big day in May.
We shall see...
Tiffany Haddish loves having a good time and she goes hard when it comes to her career. Peep how she lets loose in her trailer, find out what she said about Girls Trip 2, her dinner date with Taylor Swift and her new award inside...
There's no shame in her game. Tiffany Haddish's twerk game is strong and she loves busting one out real quick. It was the beginning of the weekend and the Girls Trip star was super hype. Y'all know the feeling when it's Friday and you're just ready to get your weekend started!
Tiff said she just learned how to twerk, so she's showing off her skills... in her makeup trailer. Y'all know she stays booked and she's currently doing promo with Kevin Hart for her new movie, Night School. In between workings, "The Last O.G." actress (atop, filming a new season) is having some fun. She turned up for #TwerkFridays with her camp and one of them even threw a few dollars.
Check it above.
Here's Tiff filming on the set of "The Last O.G." in Park Slope (NYC).
VOGUE magazine linked up with the Night School actress to grill her with 73 on-the-spot questions. Nothing was off limits and Tiffany answered them with total honesty as she hardly ever shys away from telling to truth, even when folks keep saying she talks too much.
So is there a Girls Trip 2 in the works? Possibly! When asked, she responded, "Yeah, I Hope so. We've been talking about it."
We're assuming she means her co-stars Jada Pinkett Smith, Queen Latifah and Regina Hall. Hopefully their schedules can be cleared to make this happen because the first one was hilarious. Girls Trip was a box office hit, so it wouldn't be unlikely that they wouldn't come together for another one. Tiffany already has ideas about developing her character. We'll get to that in a second.
The 38-year-old performer revealed what singer Taylor Swift cooked her for dinner once:
"She made some brisket, beef, chicken - which was delicious - potato salad, delicious, and some cornbread. It was so good and I brought the joyful greens."
As long as that potato salad didn't have raisins in it!
For Girls Trip 2, Tiff has an interesting twist she wants for her character. She wants Meryl Streep (y'all know she loves her!) to play her mother. In an interview on "Late Night With Seth Meyers," she explains exactly how they'll do her on-screen mother's reveal. She said she thinks it would be cool.:
Check it at the 3:13 mark:
Back to her VOGUE questions, she also shared who she most wants to do a love scene with, how she deals with hecklers and more.
Like we said, Tiffany has been mad busy on the promo trail. She stopped to snap it up with "Power" star Omari Hardwick and "Good Morning America" anchor Robin Roberts while making her rounds. She gave them some of her t-shirts too. She Ready!
Everyone wants to know more about Tiffany and she has no problems sharing with the world. Below, she tells W magazine about her Steve Urkel obsession and more:
— W magazine (@wmag) August 4, 2018
Not only is she busy working, she's also being recognized for all the work she has put in.
The Groupon spokeswoman was recently honored with the Comedy Person of the Year award at the Just For Laughs Awards in Montreal (above). Congrats! Keep killing it.
By the way, Lil Rel Howery won the Breakout Comedy Star of the Year Award. Congrats!
Be sure to check Tiffany Haddish and Kevin Hart cut up in Night School when it hits theaters September 28th.
Emily B and Fabolous hit up an afterparty with Beyonce and Jay Z in Brooklyn. And we see Em is wearing a ring on THAT finger. Also, Travis Scott responds to backlash he has received after removing a transgender model from his album art. More inside...
Is it true? Did Fabolous finally pop the question to Emily B?
We're not exactly sure. However, there seems to be hints that the couple could possibly be engaged.
First, Em was seen wearing a ring on THAT finger as she and Fab left Dumbo House in Brooklyn. The couple had hit up Beyonce and Jay Z's "On The Run II" Tour afterparty after they shut down the stage.
It appears Emily is wearing a ring on her left finger and there are rumors that she and Fab are actually engaged.
Last week, Fab seemingly hinted at putting a ring on it, sharing a picture of himself and Emily at Pusha T's wedding. He put an engagement ring emoji in the caption:
We also have noticed Fab has been posting pictures of Emily on his social media - something he has hardly ever did in the past. So, it's possible they could be engaged.
Recently, Fab appeared in court to cop a plea deal in his domestic violence case where he allegedly knocked Emily's front teeth out. He reportedly took the plea to avoid jail time and apparently the deal is for first-time offenders. We guess.
DJ Khaled, his fiancee Nicole Tucker, Questlove (The Roots) and celebrity stylist June Ambrose were also seen at the afterparty:
By the way, Fab was tapped to hit the stage with DJ Khaled during the "OTR II" Tour stop in New Jersey.

Rapper Travis Scott has been catching heat after removing transgender model Amanda Lepore from his Astroworld album cover. Now, he's responding to the backlash.
Last week, the 26-year-old rapper shared the artwork for his new album titled Astroworld, shot by famed photographer Dave LaChapelle. Later, LaChapelle shared a different version of the artwork which featured famous transgender model Amanda Lepore.
Amanda also posted the album cover that she was featured in, and then she asked why she was left off of the final cover art. "It was great being part of @david_lachapelle's incredible photograph of @travisscott's album cover but I'm curious why I'm not on the picture @travisscott posted," she asked on Instagram.
It was great being part of @david_lachapelle s incredible photograph of @travisscott s albulm cover but I’m curious why I’m not on the picture @travisscott posted #amandalepore #glamourgirl A girl can’t help it! Too distracting for the eyes! Upstaged everyone in the photograph! Oh well........... I love @david_lachapelle and @travisscott Love and kisses
After getting dragged online for omitting Amanda on the final cover, Travis decided to respond to the criticism, saying EVERYONE is accepted in Astroworld. He's all about spreading love, not hate.
"Thank you David LaChapelle and Amanda Lepore and everyone that came out to make all the covers and the vision come to life!!! Astroworld is about love and expression not hate," he wrote."This very important for me to speak about: Growing up I've been taught to accept everyone, not to cast people away but bring them in your home! I have nothing but respect for the LGBTQ community. I want to use my voice to make it clear that everyone on this planet is as equal and fucking awesome to the next. Me and LaChappelle set out to create images that I grew up watching him create for years that inspire me today."
Responding to the comment Amanda made about upstaging everyone, he responded:
"Yo Amanda you did upstage everyone even me and I can't wait for everyone to see the booklet that me and Dave put together that includes all these images. Thank you for being apart of it. Sorry for the misuinderstanding love you guys and THANK YOU ALL!! Everyone can one is welcome is Astroworld."
Amanda accepted his apology:
nothing but LOVE for @travisscott and @david_lachapelle thank u for having me and i’m glad to be part of this album everybody say #LOVE ‼️ #amandalepore #travisscott #astroworld #davidlachapelle #LOVE #notimeforfighting #lgbt #transexualandproud #blondebombshell #superstar #outshiningyouall #youth #body #hourglassbody #forever
And now all is well.
Astroworld is now streaming on all major platforms.

The Game lost his ish against his own teammate and they got into a fist fight on the basketball court.
In a video posted to Twitter yesterday, we see the west coast rapper playing in a game for the Drew League in L.A. Apparently, the rapper and his teammate Jarion Henry got into a verbal altercation and things turned physical with the quickness. The two squared up in the middle of the court before another man throws a punch and knocks him over.
After the fight started going viral, Game hopped on Instagram to issue an apology to his teammate and said the their disagreement went further than it should have.

"I'll take the blame & responsibility for it as well as the events (altercation) that led up to it. I say that to say, I’m writing this sincere apology 1st & foremost to my teammate & lil brother @j_hennn for my role in our disagreement that went a lot further than it should’ve."
"I acted out of character & although as brothers for the last 7 years & one of my teammates I definitely consider family.... there are always heated moments on the court & in our locker room but it should never get to where it got to today... so again, this is my apology fam," he added.
The rapper also apologized to the commissioner of the league, Dino Smiley, the commissioner's daughter Chanel Smiley and his fans. Also, everything is all good between the rapper and his homie Jarion. He hopped in Game's comments to show love.

Cardi B jetted to the west coast and she linked up with Kim Kardashian West and her momager Kris Jenner. Peep their pics and videos inside, plus deets about Cardi headlining a festival this fall...
Cardi B is seemingly back since taking sort of a hiatus after giving birth to baby Kulture Kiari. She has been on social media here and there, updating fans on motherhood and how she's coping.
Now, she's making trips outside of Atlanta after giving birth to her baby girl there in July.
Over the weekend, the "Bartier Cardi" went over Kim Kardashian West's home in Hidden Hills for a "late night house party" with her momager Kris Jenner and friends.
In true Kim K fashion, she hopped on Snapchat to show her fans that she was hanging out with Bardi on Saturday night. And of course, filters were in full force. Kim wanted Cardi to try out her "fave" filter.
The 25-year-old rapper, rocking Balenciaga and blue hair, appeared to have had fun with the 37-year-old KKW Beauty honcho, her mom and her friends. And she was hype that she's now in the "rich people club."
She shared a flick on IG with the caption,"Im officially apart of the rich people club!! I’m not poor anymore mwaaaaahahahaha!!"
And she may even try to make a quick up:
"P.s I’m selling one of @krisjenner napkins on eBay!!," she joked.
Oh, and Kris responded in the most predictable way possible. She hopped in Cardi's comments and replied, "Yes and I get 10 percent." Shocker [ends sarcasm]
We just have two words for Cardi: Get. Out.
Hide your husband and kid while you're at it.
In other Bardi news...
Momma Bardi is ready to hit the stage for her first post-pregnancy concert.
After backing out going on tour with Bruno Mars, Bardi will hit the stage for the Mala Luna Festival in San Antonio, TX this fall. The Bronx rapper will co-headline with Tyler, The Creator.
Mala Luna Festival will be a two-day festival that will go down on October 27th and 28th at San Antonio's Nelson Wolff Stadium. Other acts include Rich the Kid, Blocboy JB, and several other artists, including several San Antonio-based entertainers.
The Dream, his ex-wife Christina Milian, his new wife LaLonne Nash and their kids went on a blended family vacay. Peep their pics, plus see JalenRose and his wife Molly Qerim on their coupledom ish...
Looks like Swizz Beatz isn't the only one who can get his ex-wife and current wife together for a family vacation.
The Dream, his ex-wife Christina Milian and his current wife LaLonne Nash got together to take their kiddies to Puerto Rico for a family vacay. They brought their kids along as well, including at least one of Nivea's (The Dream's 2nd ex-wife) sons, Christina's daughter Violet and Dream & LaLonne's newest baby girl, Maverick.
They seem to have this co-parenting thing on lock.
We all know Christina and LaLonne are super cool after Christina suggested she would have a threesome with LaLonne and her ex on Instagram. In a later interview she said she was joking....but, yeah.
"I’m having a blast raising these crazy little siblings together with you. This friendship/partnership is truly a blessing. @mrsnashxo #family #thisislove #girlstrip #coparenting," Christina captioned. Hmm...we wonder if she brought her boyfriend Matt Pokora.
"Girl Time! Live from Puerto Rico when your sister come visit you on a island! That’s love!," The Dream captioned.
Nobody wins when the family feuds, right?
Speaking of vacay...
After secretly getting married, ESPN hosts Jalen Rose & Molly Qerim are relishing in newlywedom. Miami is always lit, so the couple made their way to the Versace mansion for some fun. And since they were at the Versace headquarters, they decided to get drenched in the Italian luxury brand.
We first noticed Jalen & Molly were boo'd up back in 2016 when Jalen would post about her often. Now, they're married! They tied the knot last month and now they're living their best lives as a married couple.

In a recent interview, he praised Bronny for being able to adapt to being compared to his father all the time and said he's somone he can really relate to.
"Bronny ... One kid I can relate to a lot ... we both kind of have it the same way , being the son of an NBA legend isn’t easy and to get all of this at a young age is a real challenge to adjust to," Shareef said.
"Bronny has it a little bit worse than I do, but the difference between him and I, he can back his up at such a young age. it’s all a journey ... this kid has it all! I’m looking forward to seeing him kill it for the rest of his career!"
Bronny's game is so good, he even has celebrities coming out to see him play.
