    Karrueche Tran and Quavo of Migos have been mum about their new situationship, but they're not hiding.  Check out the twosome looking like quite the couple in the club in Miami last night...

    Fresh off Karrueche's advanced screening of her new TNT show "Claws" (which is freakin' amazing and yes, we surprised ourselves with that one), she headed off to Miami for Memorial Day Weekend.  Migos had a hosting gig at Story, so she was doing her girlfriend duties sitting right by his side.

    Quavo was on the mic most of the time. Kae was sitting pretty, having some drinks and Snapchat fun with her girl:

    Comedian Chris Rock and actress girlfriend Megalyn Echikunwoke hit Gold Room after his Total Blackout tour show in Atlanta.  And they were spotted getting kissy and cutesy in VIP.

    YBF chick Rachel Lindsay may not have raked in better ratings than last season's "Bachelorette" premiere, but she's STILL winning.  Find out why inside...

    Rachel, spotted above at "Jimmy Kimmel" this past week, has been EVERYWHERE this past week promoting the hell out of the new season of the "Bachelorette."  As the first black Bachelorette or Bachelor in the history of the show, she admitted in a few interviews that she's feeling the pressure.  But, she's handling it flawlessly from what we can see.

    "Bachelorette" had the highest ratings of the night on Monday night, beating out all other network shows including "Lucifer" and "Jane The Virgin."  5.68M viewers watched her navigate through a bevy of crazies (and a few we see potential with) on the two hur premiere.  Even though the number of viewers in the key 18-49 demo dropped 10% from Season 13's premiere numbers, who cares?!  Rachel's still engaged and "over the moon happy", which she's been telling everyone who'll listen.

    Speaking of that, we can't help but wonder if these spoilers she and ABC non-traditionally leaked (the fact she's engaged) and those other leaks (like the name of the actual winner she chose) had anything to do with the lower ratings.  Still, folks are tuning in because she's fabulous AF.

    And Rachel kept it cute on "Extra" as she showed off her engagement ring (well, the "starter" version) for host Mario Lopez.



    The 31-year-old visited "Bachelorette" super fan Kris Jenner.  Sigh.

    She also found time to throw out the first pitch at the Dodgers game this week:

    She snapped it up with the latest "Bachelor" Ben Higgins -- who just broke up with his pick Lauren Bushnell -- at the game.

    If you're wondering what Rachel REALLY thinks of that Waboom guy (ughhhh we're so mad she kept him!), check out what she told Access Hollywood:


    Are you watching to see who Rachel chooses?!  Who has your vote?  TBH, we don't feel like any of them are quite up to par for her.  Talk about limited options!  But here's to hoping...

    Go inside to see LL Cool J’s daughter Samaria Smith, Lil Wayne and Toya Wright’s daughter Reginae Carter, Andre Harrell’s son Gianni Harrell, and NeNe Leakes’ son Brentt Leakes graduate inside…

    It’s that time of year! Parents are stanning OUT for their kids as they walk across the stage to receive their diplomas.

     photo grad7.png

    It was a big day for LL Cool J and his daughter Samaria Smith.

    This week, Samaria graduated from the Fashion Institute of Technology in Flushing Meadows Park, Queens. And her father was there to show his support. Not only was he there to support, he also spoke during the ceremony to receive the President’s Award for Creative Excellence from FIT in his home borough.

    “This generation is poised to bridge the gap of racism, sexism and any other negative –ism that been impacting our world,” he said. He wrapped up his speech with advice he received from his mother and grandmother. “If a task is once begun, never leave until it’s done. Be they labor great or small, do it well or not at all.”

    He added, "Samaria, I'm proud of you!"

    After his speech, he snuck in a few selfies with his daughter when she walked up on stage to accept her diploma.

    On Instagram, Toya poured her heart out to her daughter letting her know how happy she was for her accomplishment. She wrote, "To my beautiful daughter and light of my life! Congrats on your graduation baby girl! Words can't express how I feel today. I wish that your life becomes all that you want it to be. May your dreams stay big and your worries stay small. Always remember to go after what you want and to stay humble along the way. I love you so much and I'm extremely proud of you."

    After Adrienne Bailon & Naturi Naughton's makeup session aired this week, their third groupmate Kiely Williams' sister/manager wasn't here for it.  So she started spilling tea on both ladies.  Get it inside....

    Sheesh!  Not everybody is happy that Naturi & Adrienne squashed their beef.  The former 3LW groupmates healed their fried chicken filled feelings (remember when Naturi said Kiely and Adrienne threw chicken at her one time?) on "The Real" when Adrienne apologized for mistreating her.

    Their third group member Kiely hasn't been hear from much lately, but her sister/manager (who also used to manage Adrienne) Tse Williams had PLENTY to say last night.

    She blasted Naturi for making up stories and playing victim when it came to those "they hated me because of my dark skin color" stories.  And she blasted Adrienne for messing up the group because of her thirsty naked picture leak. A leak that her then publicist Jonathan Hay admitted they did themselves.

     photo Screen Shot 2017-05-26 at 1.27.29 AM_zpsuuhwo8z2.png


    Then Tse went off, even accusing Adrienne of sleeping with married men...and Kanye West:

    But it seems Adrienne is unbothered.  She's currently on vacay with her new husband Israel Houghton in the Dominican Republic.  They snapped pics on their sponsored vacay and shared them with the media:

    We’re crowning former President Barack Obama’s White House photographer Pete Souza with the King Of Shade crown. Find out why inside…

    Since Trump took office, Barack Obama’s White House photographer Pete Souza has been shading the f*** out of him via his Instagram page. It’s been subtle shade, but shade nonetheless. And he never even mentions Trump’s name.

    Here are 6 times Pete Souza gave us the Trump shade we so desperately needed below...just this month!



    Laughter at the 2012 NATO Summit. No jostling involved.

    A post shared by Pete Souza (@petesouza) on


    Trump has been receiving backlash after a clip of him shoving Montenegro's Prime Minister during the NATO Summit. Pete served up the perfect response.


    Mutual admiration, 2016.

    A post shared by Pete Souza (@petesouza) on


    When Trump met with the Pope in Vatican City, a very telling picture began circulating. Trump was sitting all smiles next to the Pope who didn’t look happy…at all. On the day Trump met with the Pope, Pete posted a picture of Mr. Obama meeting the Pope and it’s clear it the meeting had a totally different vibe.



    Holding hands.

    A post shared by Pete Souza (@petesouza) on


    There was a lot of talk this week about First Lady Melania Trump dissing her husband when he reached out to hold her hand. Pete had a shade-ful response to that. Ha!



    Every person in this photograph is a patriot.

    A post shared by Pete Souza (@petesouza) on


    Following Trump’s firing of former FBI Director James Comey, Pete shared an image of POTUS speaking with Comey and others, dubbing them all patriots.



    There were reports that Trump shared sensitive information in regards to a North Korean missile launch at his Mar-a-lago resort with Japense Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and other dinner guests. POTUS Obama would never!



    Merrick Garland. Just saying.

    A post shared by Pete Souza (@petesouza) on


    There's also that time Pete threw some shade at Trump when he was set to announce his Supreme Court nominess.  You know, the positions republicans refused to let Obama rightfully fill during his last year in office?

    He posted up a picture of Obama with former VP Joe Biden and his Supreme Court Justice nominee Merrick Garland.

    Keep 'em coming Pete!

    Rap legend Nas linked up with souful singer Lauryn Hill to celebrate her 42nd birthday. The music icons, who collaborated on the hit classic “If I Rule The World,” were captured in a picture together that Nas posted on his Instagram. The Queens Bridge rapper sung Happy Birthday to L-Boogie while cutting her birthday cake.

    He said, “Singing Happy Birthday Stevie Wonder style to my soul sister Ms Lauryn Hill blessings and blessings love. (Free the Big Bro Lord)”

    Nice. Happy Birthday L-Boogie!

    Another Gemini celebrating...

    “Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta” star Rasheeda celebrated her birthday with her closest friends and family in Atlanta last night…

    Previously we reported Kirk didn't appear to be in attendance, but thanks to his son posting the pic (and not Rasheeda, interestingly), we now know he was:

     photo Screen Shot 2017-05-27 at 10.15.05 PM_zpsuv1ccdb0.png

    It's interesting to note, Kirk was also in attendance for Kandi Burruss' birthday last week. It had folks wondering if Rasheeda and Kirk had reunited.

    While Kirk wasn't present in any of Rasheeda's pics she posted (and she posted several), Kirk sent his estranged wife birthday wishes via social media:

    Chance The Rapper graces the cover of EBONY magazine’s June 2017 issue serving up some presidential fab. Go inside to find out if the rapper would ever consider running for president…

    Chance The Rapper whips out a blue tailored suit to serve up some presidential fab for EBONY magazine’s June 2017 Black Music issue.

    The three-time Grammy Award winner, who has been dubbed as Chicago’s Hip Hop savior, is all about serving the community, raising $2.2 million for Chicago Public Schools after a very disappointing meeting with Illinois Gov. Bruce Rauner. With all the philanthropic work he does for his hometown, it’s no wonder folks are calling for him to run for president of the United States.

     photo chanceeb2.jpg

    So, would the “No Problems” rapper ever consider to run for office?

    “I would never run for any office or government position,” he told the magazine after cracking a smile. “I’m not into it. I think politics is a reason why a lot of stuff doesn’t get done. There’s a lot of favors, and a lot of people are held back by their intentions of being re-elected or the things that they owe their party or constituents. I think when you’re in my position as an artist, I can say what I want and talk about the issues that matter.”

    We totally agree.

     photo chanceeb3.jpg

     photo chanceeb4.jpg

    Outside of being an inspirational emcee, Chance is transitioning into a movie star as he gears up for a role in a new flick titled Slice. Making a move into the Hollywood scene can be tricky, but Chance relies on his discernment.

    “There are a lot of spaces where you feel like God isn’t around,” Chance said. “I got some vibes. You have to listen and be aware of your discernment, and if somebody tells you to leave? Then get the f*** out of there. You’ll feel it … You just have to listen to God.”

    Drop those gems Chance!

    Barack Obama received rock star treatment when he rolled into Germany to speak at a few events. Unsurprisingly, he gathered more people together than when Trump made his arrival in Europe. Peep pics of the former president inside…

    *cues up Aloe Blacc’s “The Man”*

    Former President Barack Obama was welcomed with open arms and cheers from the Germans when he arrived in Berlin, Germany to celebrate the 500th anniversary of the Reformation, joined by German Chancellor Angela Merkel.

    POTUS and the German Chancellor, who reunited for the first time since Obama’s presidency, sat on a panel to discuss democracy at the Church Congress in front of 70,000 people yesterday. People in the audience held up signs/banners that read, “Can we keep you,” “We miss you,” and “Welcome back, Mr President”. Aww!

     photo BarackObamaObamaMerkelDiscussDemocracyjzDuSrrpcmtl.jpg

     photo BarackObamaObamaMerkelDiscussDemocracywIKES0C4Ol3l.jpg

    Speaking in front of the Brandenburg Gate, which was once cut off by the Berlin Wall, Mr. Obama revealed he was heartbroken by the bombing in Machester during Ariana Grande’s concert, calling the world a “very complicated place.”

    “We can see the terrible violence that took place just recently in Manchester," POTUS said. "It is a reminder that there is a great danger of terrorism and people who would do great harm to others just because they’re different. How heartbroken we are by the loss of life, and we grieve with the families.”

    Peep a clip from his speech below:






    It was a totally different scene when Trump arrived in Brussels, Germany on May 24th. Trump was met with 9,000 people marching the streets in protest before Trump met with NATO and EU leaders.

    At the NATO Summit, Trump is seen shoving Montenegro Prime Minister Dusko Markovic and pushed himself ahead as NATO leaders walked inside the alliance's new headquarters and prepared for a group photo. Check it:


    Typical narcissistic Trump ish.

    POTUS hit the stage at Kongresshaus in Baden-Baden, Germany to accept the German Media Award, presented by Joachim Gauck, former President of Germany. The German Media Award has been presented annually since 1992 to honor personalities from public life.

LeBron finished with a total 35 points as the Cavs defeated the Celtics, 135-102. This is the Cavs third straight conference titled and LeBron’s seventh straight trip to the NBA Finals.

    “I wear the number [23] because of Mike [Michael Jordan]," LeBron said during the post-game interview. "I think I fell in love with the game because of Mike, just because of what he was able to accomplish. When you’re watching Michael Jordan it’s almost like a god. So I didn’t think I could be Mike.”

    He continued, “For my name to come up in the discussion with the greatest basketball player of all time, it’s like ‘Wow!’”

    After the game, LeBron walked up to Celtics baller Isaiah Thomas, who couldn’t play due to an injury, and gave him a hug.

    In the post game interview, LeBron talked about how he did everything possible to be just like Michael Jordan. So will he go bald like Mike as well? He said "I didn't go bald like Mike, but I'm getting there. It'll be post career though," he said.

    LeBron's wife Savannah James was more than proud of her husband:

    Athletes aren't known to have the prettiest of feet.  But damn homie.  Get into Shaq's hooves he just revealed inside...


    Ever wonder what the feet of a 4-time NBA champ look like?

    Shaquille O'Neal revealed his claws last night during the NBA on TNT post game show.  We get that it was part of the promo for the advanced screening of "Claws" that came on afterwards, but sheesh.  This ish took all the way over.

    His 17-year-old son Shareef tweeted major shade saying:

    Peep the video above to see why the WHOLE internet was in a tizzy, mainly asking how Shaunie and "Hoopz" slept next to this nightly.

    But hey, Shaq's got 4 rings and umpteen Finals and All-Star MVP titles to keep him warm at night.  He's good.

    Miss Black Texas claims she was wrongfully arrested and the police chief berated her by calling her a “black b*tch.” Oh hell no.  Get the deets, plus find out how Apple is trying to make strides in diversity inside…

     photo texasblack.jpg

    Miss Black Texas Carmen Ponder is using her platform to blast who is supposed to be a community leader.  She claims she was wrongfully arrested by a North Texas police chief who she said called her a “black b*tch.” After an encounter with Police Chief Kerry Crews, she said she was unlawfully detained and arrested after passing his 14-year-old daughter on the road.

    The Texas A&M University graduate detailed the encounter in a lengthy Twitter post claiming she experienced racist road rage from the police chief in Commerce, Texas. She said she noticed the car in front of her driving erratically, so she decided to pass the vehicle.

    When she made it to her destination (Wal-Mart) she realized the car she passed had followed her to the store. Crews, who had not identified himself as a police officer, yelled at Carmen for passing his daughter. She told him it was illegal to let his 14-year-old daughter drive and that’s when he allegedly responded, “Whatever, you black b*tch.”


    When Carmen was leaving the Wal-Mart, the police chief, his daughter and another man were waiting for her.

    One of the men reportedly informed Carmen that Crews is a police chief and that she should apologize. She declined to offer up an apology and began walking to her car. The man allegedly grabbed her and told her she was being detained.

    Police arrived on the scene, but the man who grabbed her said she was resisting arrest and told the officers to arrest her. She was arrested and detained for about 24 hours. Carmen was later released and still faced a charge for evading arrest.

    Now, she’s calling for the City of Commerce to fire the police chief.

    The city manager says Crews has been placed on leave during the investigation into the matter.

    We can all guess how this may end.

    Apple, who has received much criticism for its lack of company diversity, just hired its first "diversity officer." Denise Young is Apple’s new Vice President of Worldwide Human Resources and it’s the first ever at the company. She’ll be responsible for attracting and retaining top talent at Apple and she reports directly to CEO Tim Cook.

    According to Apple, Denise previously served as head of worldwide human resources at Apple for three years, and has been involved in diversity programs at Apple for years. For over 10 years, she sat on the leadership team that built Apple’s retail organization, which now welcomes more than one million people every day.

    We'll see if actual diversity throughout the company actually happens.  Nice move in the meantime.
