Make way for a black chick who rocks!
R&B songstress and nominee Jazmine Sullivan wowed us all in this black glittery Michael Costello gown that hugged her curves like a glove. Chick is definitely serving up some epic slayage and elegance. The “10 Seconds” singer was up for three awards tonight, but unfortunately didn’t take home a statue.
Well here’s a surprise. Grammy Award winning artist Mya popped up on the red carpet looking beautiful as always. Nice to see her on the scene. Just yesterday, the R&B songbird dropped a new musical offering called Smooth Jones. You can cop it on Apple Music/iTunes.
"Empire" star/singer Serayah was a total knock out showing just enough skin in a lavender custom Vera Wang gown with a train which she paired with Stuart Weitzman heels and an Oroton clutch.
The asymmetrical bob and vamp lip color perfectly tops off her look.

R&B Diva Faith Evans served vintage glam in a pearl white silk gown topping her look off with a black fur stole.

And his Wondaland boss Janelle Monae looked gorgeous in Jean Paul Gaultier.
Yes Zendaya for this androgynous suited and booted look from DSquared!

The couple is expecting a baby girl soon and couldn’t be happier. John nabbed the Grammy for Best Song Written for Visual Media.
While on the carpet, the happy couple revealed their L.A. house they just moved in is still being renovated and they are nowhere near ready for their baby girl’s arrival. The R&B crooner then disclosed some parental advice given to him by President Barack Obama: Be prepared to be wrapped around his daughter’s little finger once she’s born. Aww.
Grammy Award winning superproducer Pharrell Williams is looking …different these days. Must be the blonde hair. He brought his wife Helen along as his date for the evening. And they celebrated P’s win in the Best Rap Song category for his feature on Kendrick Lamar’s “Alright.”
Looks like those break up rumors are false. R&B singer The Weeknd and his model girlfriend Bella Hadid put on a coupledom front at the Grammys. You’ll recall, there were rumors that the two had called it quits.
