Michel’le was all smiles with the castat the Hollywood screening of her new LIFETIME biopic Surviving Compton. Go inside to peep their red carpet pics, plus shots of “black•ish” cuties Yara Shahidi & Miles Brown inside….
Last night, R&B singer Michel’le hit the carpet at the London West Hollywood to present her upcoming LIFETIME biopic Surviving Compton: Dre, Suge & Michel’le at the Broad Focus Screening event. She snapped it up with the film's stars Rhyon Nicole Brown (who plays Michel'le) and Curtis Hamilton (who plays her son's father Dr. Dre).
Rhyon was slearly good casting, we see the resemblance!
Actor Deric Augustine was also in the mix. He plays rapper DJ Yella in the TV film.
The former “R&B Divas: Hollywood” star brought her daughter Bailei Knight (whom she shares with Suge Knight) along as her date for the evening. Bailei will get an inside look at her mom's life as one of the music industry’s top R&B singers. From what we hear, Michel’le gets down to the nitty, gritty in the film, so we hope her teenage daughter is ready for the realness.
During a recent interview on the "Wendy Williams Show," Michel'le opened up about not being that great of a mother. Not that she was abusive to them, but she said she didn't have much common sense when it came to parenting. Get those deets HERE.
Star Shanica Knowles, who’s allegedly Beyonce & Solange’s cousin, will star in the film as actress Tichina Arnold. This should be interesting...
Be sure to set your DVRs! Surviving Compton premieres Saturday, October 15th at 8pm EST on LIFETIME.
Elsewhere in Hollywood....
“black•ish” actress Yara Shahidi made her way to the L.A. premiere of teen film The Swap held at ArcLight Hollywood. She kept it cute and age-appropriate in a denim jacket and skirt set with sneakers.
On the magazine front...
The YBF teen is featured in PAPER magazine’s“Beautiful People” issue where she talks about using her platform to speak out on issues that affect her and her peers. And her editorials and nothing short of breathtaking.
This hair! We're obsessed. And equally obsessed with how wickedly smart this YBF teen is:
“I think it's nice that the projects I'm on have given me the platform to continue the conversation and then create my own conversation," said Yara. “It's been a cool thing to be able to say, 'This is what my character thinks, but this is what Yara thinks.'"
At another event in L.A.
Yara's on-screen little brother Miles Brown hit up the L.A. screening of the kiddie comedy Middle School: The Worst Years Of My Life held at the TCL Chinese Theatre yesterday. He's so adorable.
"Hollywood Today Live" co-host Garcelle Beauvais was also on the scene in a buttoned up look.
