    This couple sure loves to color coordinate.

    Wiz Khalifa and his model girlfriend Izabela Guedes haven’t been dating very long, but they’re always in sync when they’re spotted together. The lovebirds were seen leaving Warwick nightclub in Hollywood recently. And as you can see, they were on their color coordinating steez, both rocking velvet burgundy pieces with matching Van sneakers.

    Mother-son time! 

    Nia Long, who starred on "Empire" last season, and her son Kez Udoka (whom she shares with longtime boyfriend Ime Udoka) were spotted trekking through Beverly Hills on a retail run. Little Kez followed close behind his mom as they shopped it up through the fashion district.

    Speaking of "Empire," production for season 4 is already underway in Chicago. Oscar winner Forest Whitaker has signed on for a recurring role this season.

    Amber Rose has a list of reasons why women shouldn’t shave and why she chose the BUSH photo to promote her Slut Walk. Hear what she said about those two topics, plus how she learned her gift of gab in the strip club inside…

    Free The BUSH!

    Amber Rose isn’t conforming to society standards and wants you to know a little pubic hair down there is healthy for a woman.

    The “How To Be A Bad B*tch” author stopped by Complex’s “Everyday Struggle” to talk about her annual Slut Walk and why she chose to show off her lady parts to promote it.

    Amber said she used the photo because she loves controversy and she KNEW that picture would stir up some controversy. She said people will ask her all the time why she doesn’t change the name to get more sponsors, but she feels no one would even talk about it if the movement wasn’t called Slut Walk.

    Joe Budden started going in, calling her “bush” “trash.” He feels women shouldn’t have a lot of hair down there. The mother-of-one had to school the rapper on the benefits of women having hair down there.

    Touching on her past, she said dancing in the strip club was a form of business school for her, finding her gift of gab in the club. She said she had a mentor who advised her not the drink or do drugs while she worked. Now, she uses her gift of gab and the principles she learned in the club when she meets with big companies.

    While she didn’t mention his name, Amber also revealed something about her ex-Kanye West. Joe questioned her thoughts on a certain entertainer “bugging the f*** out.” She responded [at the 44:45 mark], “Imagine living with him .”

    The talk show host dated Yeezy from 2008 to 2010. Once they called it quits, she admits Kanye bullied her to try and keep her quiet.

    “I still have never said anything mean about Kanye,” she said. “This is after six years of bullying from him. This is after six or seven years of constant bullying from him.”

    Are you surprised?

    She also talked about her ner relationship with 21 Savage, the Blac Chyna vs. Rob Kardashian drama and more.

    Peep the interview (hit the 22-minute mark) below:

    So, HBO is trying to defend that “Confederate” show that will chronicle an alternative society where slavery of black people is legal. Find out how the network’s programming president Casey Bloys tried to defend it inside…

    Last week, HBO announced a new series about an alternative society where slavery was never abolished is coming down the pipeline. “Game of Thrones” producers, David Benioff and D.B. Weiss (two white producers), are behind the project titled “Confederate.” By the way, they’re working with two non-white producers, Nichelle Tramble Spellman (“The Good Wife”) and Malcolm Spellman (“Empire”).

    The series will show an alternative future where the South wins the Civil War and slavery remained legal.

    As expected, the new show announcement was met with backlash where folks started questioning, ‘WHY is this necessary?’ Us included.

    Now, HBO is in defense mode trying to justify why this show is needed, or at least what their “real intentions” are for the series.

    During HBO’s TCA executive session, president of programming Casey Bloys placed the blame on the way the show was announced, calling the decision to issue a press release “misguided,” according to Deadline. He feels like the project could be better explained through one-on-one interviews, so the creators could give all of the intricate details about the show, verses a summed up synopsis.

    “If I could do it over again, our mistake — HBO’s mistake, not the producers’ — was thinking that we would be able to announce an idea that was so sensitive and require so much care in a press release,” Bloys said.

    Apparently, slavery being legal in the post-Civil War alternative future isn’t want you think it’s going to be. He continued,

    “The producers have said they’re not looking to do Gone With the Wind 2017,” he said. “It’s not whips and plantations. It’s what they imagine a modern-day institution of slavery would look like.”

    At the end of the day, slavery is slavery, regardless if they’re using whips and putting black people on plantations…it’s still SLAVERY. The network will be showing a whole group of people at the mercy of another group of people simply because of the color of their skin. Why would we want to see that? Well, we know why SOME would want to see it. This show just needs to disappear because it seems it will be doing more harm than good.

    We're SO curious to find out which YBF celebs decided to star on this tranwreck of a show.

    Are you here for the HBO's weak excuse as for why the “Confederate” show is neccessary? Sound off in the comments.

    Nick Young reunites with his kids’ mother Keonna Green for a family vacay with their son Nick Jr. in Mexico. Meanwhile, Fantasia and her husband Kendall Taylor are luxuriating in paradise. Peep all the pics inside…

     photo nyfam1.png

    It’s a family affair!

    NBA baller Nick Young and his kids’ mother Keonna Green are clearly on good terms and co-parenting like champs. The former couple, who shares two kids together, jetted to The Resort at Pedregal in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico for some family fun. They enjoyed a family vacay before Nick Jr. heads off to kindergarten.

    Yesterday’s festivities included swimming with dolphins. Their son Nick Jr. didn’t look too excited about it at first (above), but he eventually came around and had some fun with the dolphins.

     photo nyfam6.png

    Aww!

     photo nyfam10.png

     photo nyfam5.png

     photo nyfam2.png

    Based on Nick's caption, he didn't seem too fond of the dolphins at first either, but the former Lakers' baller eventually came around. He captioned, "I gave these dolphins another chance we cool now"

     photo nyfam4.png

     photo nyfam7.png

    It's unclear if Nick and Keonna brought their 9-month-old daughter Navi Young along for the fun.

     photo nyfam9.png

    The "Basketball Wives" star wasn't scare at all. She swam underwater with the dolphins and everything.

     photo nyfam8.png

    Cute.

    By the way, Nick joined the Goldenn State Warriors after inking a deal earlier this month.

    Well, look what we have here. Lamar Odom, Blac Chyna and Tyga hit up the same party in Beverly Hills last night. More inside…

    Everyone was out on the party scene in Beverly Hills last night…that is, all of the Kardashian-Jenner exes.

     photo iGoliveLaunchEventArrivalsmelNPoN5-IFl.jpg

    Blac Chyna, Rob Kardashian’s ex-fiancée, has been keeping busy since Rob leaked her nudes on social media. Chick linked up with Nicki Minaj to shoot scenes for Yo Gotti’s “Rake It Up” video treatment. Then, she copped two new luxury rides after she returned the cars her ex copped her. Now, she’s hitting the party scene.

    The mom-of-two made her way to the iGO.Live app launch party in Beverly Hills rocking a blue sheer and sparkly Dare To be Vintage dress accented with a mini train and finished her look with blue ankle heels.

    Former NBA player Lamar Odom, Khloe Kardashian’s ex-husband, popped up on the scene for the festivities. He’s reportedly working on a new tell-all book where he will share intimate details about his near fatal drug overdose and other things. He said NOTHING is off-limits. If Lamar does end up publishing a tell-all, are you going to read it?

     photo Chyo2.png

    We wonder what secrets were shared during this moment.

    Rapper Tyga, ex-boyfriend of Kylie Jenner & Chyna’s son’s father, got all dressed up for the event.

    The jury has made a decision and Quincy Jones is $9.4 million richer after he winning his royalties suit against Michael Jackson’s estate. Deets inside…

    *cues up “Don’t Stop ‘Til You Get Enough*

    Quincy Jones had a victorious day in court when a jury sided with him in his royalty lawsuit against Michael Jackson’s estate. A jury awarded the legendary music producer -- who produced MJ's top selling albums, Off The Wall, Thriller and Bad -- $9.4 million in the trial against the estate. A ten-person jury had been deliberating since Monday over the case, which was filed over four years ago.

    Quincy also felt like he was cheated out of royalties for the This Is It documentary that grossed over $500 million. The estate took $90 million, but Quincy was only paid $455,000.

    It’s a far cry from the $30 million he was originally gunning for, but a win is a win. And it’s more than what the King of Pop’s estate said he was owed.

    In the suit, Quincy claimed he was cheated out of royalties after MJ passed away in summer 2009. Once MJ passed away, there was a surge of interest in the projects, which increased sales of the albums and an increase in royalties. Quincy said MJ’s estate had been reaping the benefits from the royalties while he was left out of the loop.

    In a statement, Quincy said:

    “As an artist, maintaining the vision and integrity of one’s creation is of paramount importance. I, along with the team I assembled with Michael, took great care and purpose in creating these albums, and it has always given me a great sense of pride and comfort that three decades after they were originally recorded, these songs are still being played in every corner of the world.”

    "This lawsuit was never about Michael, it was about protecting the integrity of the work we all did in the recording studio and the legacy of what we created. Although this judgment is not the full amount that I was seeking, I am very grateful that the jury decided in our favor in this matter. I view it not only as a victory for myself personally, but for artists’ rights overall.”

    Attorneys for MJ’s estate, Howard Weitzman and Zia Modabber, said Mr. Jones should NOT have been awarded the multi-million dollar sum. They told Billboard:

    "While the jury denied Quincy Jones $21 million – or more than two-thirds of what he demanded -- from The Estate of Michael Jackson, we still believe that giving him millions of dollars that he has no right to receive under his contracts is wrong.”

    Billboard breaks down the two contracts that were at the center of the trial:

    Two contracts from 1978 and 1985 were at the center of the dispute between Jones and Jackson, with specific wording that at times seemed to have a variety of interpretations. The deals indicate that Jones is entitled to a share of record royalties from Off the Wall, Thriller and Bad. However, the dispute intensified because Jones believes that he should have always received shares from the profits of Jackson's 1991 joint venture with Sony. Additionally, Jones said he was also entitled to net profits from movies instead of licensing fees from the songs used in those projects.

    Jones argued that the This Is It documentary concert film, which opened in theaters four months after Jackson's death, counted as a "video show" under his contract, which would have entitled him to a share of the net receipts. The Jackson legal team argued that the term is standard for music and irrelevant in Jones' appeal.

    So, Quincy didn’t get all that he felt he was owed, but he definitely received a come up.

    It’s a lot of good things happening at the OWN Network. “Queen Sugar” has been renewed for season 3. Also, Ava DuVernay and Will Packer have inked first-look deals with Oprah's Harpo Films and the OWN network. Deets inside…

     photo avaown1.jpg

    “Queen Sugar” fans rejoice! We're getting more of Kofi's sexiness and more family drama.  *praise him*

    The OWN Network has given Ava DuVernay’s hit series the greenlight for a third season and we can’t be happier. It’s one of our TV obsessions and we can't get enough. Season 2 already has our emotions all over the place. And seeing hottie Kofi Siriboe every week makes it all worth it.

    More good news for Ava.

    The Oscar nominated directress has inked a new first-look TV deal with Oprah’s Harpo Films for television and digital media. Ava’s recently announced limited series “Central Park Five” is the first project under Ava’s new deal. By the way, Lady O is starring in Ava's upcoming Disney movie, A Wrinkle In Time.

    “I’m so proud of Ava and her ability as a filmmaker to challenge the status quo and push for inclusiveness on screen and behind the camera," said Oprah. “I love, love, love the work we have been able to create so far. I am looking forward to developing many more meaningful projects together.”

    We’re looking forward to them as well. Congrats Ava!

    Another director making boss moves…

     photo willown2.jpg

    The YBF filmmaker come up is real.

    Will Packer, in partnership with Discovery Communications and Universal Pictures, is starting a new company called Will Packer Media.  He'll be bringing production and branded content to TV and digital scripted and unscripted series.  And it's all targeting millennial audiences.

    The Girls Trip producer will serve as the CEO of Will Packer Media and will have offices in three major cities: L.A., NYC and Atlanta.  With the new company, Packer is looking to start engaging a younger more tech-savy audience. The new company will be a separate entity from his Will Packer Productions brand.

    Deadline reports:

    “We are creating a new model for content production that sees TV and digital as equals, and combines the best of storytelling and brands for an underserved audience,” Packer said.

    “As the media industry continues its rapid transformation, and as younger, more diverse viewers seek to be nourished by content across all screens, it’s more important than ever to have a direct line to the most creative minds in the business,” said David Zaslav, President and CEO, Discovery Communications.

    In one of its first moves, Will Packer Media has acquired creative and technology agency Narrative_, which will form a core part of the new company. Co-founded by Tricia Clarke-Stone and Russell Simmons, Narrative_ develops marketing campaigns for blue-chip brands and start-ups including Under Armour, JCPenney, Samsung and Santo Mezquila, and creates technology products to help brands build deeper connections with consumers.

    Boss move, especially in the ever changing digital landscape. We’re SO here for this. Congrats Will!

    It was a big day for Rihanna today!

    The 29-year-old singer met with France’s President Emmanuel Macron and his wife/First Lady Brigitte Macron at the Elysee Palace in support of the Global Partnership for Education in an effort to provide more access to education around the world, especially for young girls.

    The meeting came after Rih tweeted to President Macron asking for his assistance in funding education programs last month. And here we are.

    As you can see, it appeared to be a great meeting as the “Wild Thoughts” singer laughed it up with President Macron and chopped it up with First Lady Macron.

    Now this is a breath of fresh air!

    Award winning musician Esperanza Spalding is gearing up to sprinkle her #BlackGirlMagic on Harvard University students.

    The Ivy League school announced (via press release) the four-time Grammy award winner, jazz bassist, singer, songwriter, lyricist, humanitarian activist, and educator has joined the faculty of the Department of Music at Harvard University as Professor of the Practice, with an appointment beginning July 2017. Woot!

    As a professor at the prestigious school, the Grammy Award winner will teach a range of courses in “songwriting, arranging, improvisation and performance, while also bringing her commitment to music as a voice for social justice.”

    With five acclaimed solo albums and numerous music videos under her belt she knows a thing or two about creating your own lane in the music industry. She also knows a thing or two about being an educator after teaching at Boston’s Berklee College of Music from 2005 – 2008.

    It’s reported professors of the practice typically get appointed for five-year terms, so all you Harvard students out there will have a few opportunities to nab a spot in her class.

    Nice!

    The wax figure caused such an uproar on social media that the museum had the wax figure temporarily removed from the floor to get “fixed.” The photo on the right is the “updated” Bey. So, they slicked her hair back and turned the lights down?

    Needless to say, folks are are still up in arms about the wax figure and are wondering what in the white woman hell is going on! Peep the tweets:

    Looks like Kanye West and Kim Kardashian West are gearing up for baby No. 3 via surrogate. Deets inside….

    We told you last month Kanye West and his wife Kim Kardashian West had hired a surrogate. And now, it has been revealed the surrogate is already 3-months pregnant with the third West baby.

    According to US magazine, the 40-year-old rapper (below, spotted in L.A. recently) and the 36-year-old reality star chose a San Diego mom in her late 20s (referred by an agency) to carry their third child. And she’s already several months into the pregnancy.

    The Wests can likely expect their third bundle of joy to arrive January-February 2018. The new baby will join 4-year-old sister North West and 19-month-old brother Saint West.

     photo PFLOYD1.jpg

     photo PFLOYD2.jpg

    You’ll recall, the couple put down a $68,850 deposit with a surrogacy agency for baby #3. They have reportedly agreed to pay $45,000 in monthly installments of $4,500. If there’s a multiples situation, the Wests will cough up an additional $5,000 for each additional child. Of course, she’ll have to follow very strict rules, which is typical for the job.

    It’s no secret the Wests were going to go the surrogacy route to add to their growing family as Kim has been very vocal about it. She mentioned hiring a surrogate a few times on “Keeping Up With The Kardashians,” even though her doctor told her she would be fine to have another baby. Kim said she doesn’t feel comfortable going through another pregnancy because she apparently suffers from a life threatening condition called placenta accreta.

    What? Y’all thought Beyonce and Jay Z were going to have three babies and not the Wests? Ha.

    Rick Ross served a sexist response as to why he hasn’t signed any female rappers to his MMG label. Hear what he said, plus peep Gilbert Arenas on his f*** boi steez bashing Lupita Nyong’o inside…

    Rick Ross has built his own empire with a successful roster on his Maybach Music Group record label. With all of his success, there’s not one female rapper on the roster.

    The Rather You Than Me rapper sat down with Power 105’s “The Breakfast Club” to explain why he hasn’t signed any female rappers. And his response is sexist as hell.

    Rozay said he hasn’t signed a female rapper because he feels like he would be more interested in getting between her legs than furthering her career and that’s bad for business.

    “You know, I never did it because I always thought that like I would end up f*cking the female rapper, f*cking the business up I’m so focused on my business. I just have to be honest with you. You know, she looking good and I’m spending so much money on the photoshoots. I gotta f*ck a couple times.”

    UGH!

    Charlamagne found it funny, while Angela Yee turned the conversation to if he had signed a 17-year-old female rapper that he would look at as his protégé.

    “I mean, most definitely,” he responded. “If she was a youngster that I felt she was bringing something to the table that dope, you know what I’m saying… just like it’s a female artist that I’ve watched her whole life in the same position was Brianna [Perry] in Miami.”

    The MMG honcho has worked with raptress Trina in the past and revealed he never tried to get at her because she used to mess with one of his homies.

    He has once again berated Lupita Nyong’o for the darkness of his skin and her physical features. This isn't the first time he came for Lupita, and probably won't be the last. SMH.

    Peep his disrespectful commentary above.

    Does he not realize his daughters are DARK skinned? We wonder what he says to his daughters about the color/shade of their skin. Hmph.

    Bernice Burgos is the talk on social media this morning after her almost hour long interview with Power 105’s “The Breakfast Club.” Find out what she said about her relationships with T.I. & Drake, how she tried to check Angela Yee and the work she has had done on her body when you go inside...

    While T.I. and the Harris clan live it up on vacation, Bernice Burgos is speaking out on her “situationship” with T.I., her social media drama with Tiny Harris, and more.

    The bartender-turned-“urban model” (she hates the video vixen label) appeared on Power 105’s “The Breakfast Club” this morning (and became a trending topic for the tragic interview folks believe she gave) to address a few things we've been hearing about her in the media. Specifically, all of the drama that unfolded about her allegedly being T.I.’s side chick.

    Bernice told the radio hosts she and T.I. have never been in a relationship and they never “kicked it.”

    “It was only for business, for a movie,” she said.

    As for Drake, she said she never was in a relationship with him either and confirmed he did NOT buy her a Bentley, despite what the rumor mill said.

    “Drake is the sweetest person ever," she gushed. "He’s always been good to me and I’ve been good to him.”

    Weren't they spotted on vacay together though?  Not saying it was a whole relationship but it definitely is more than "that's just somebody I know off the street."

    She said she and Drizzy have just always been cool and she thought it was cute that he put her name in a song.

    Switching gears….

    Bernice revealed she first got plastic surgery after the birth of her second child (She revealed has two daughters by two men). She always had “a**” but she wanted to have her sides filled out so she went to a lady’s house in the Bronx to have the procedure done. *raises eyebrows*

    “She hooked it up real cute,” she explained.

    Oh.

    Bernice said she’s sick of chicks who hate on girls who have enhanced their bodies.

    “That’s one thing girls need to stop with this fake sh*t. Just because whatever I did to enhance my body, it’s me. I paid for that. OK? Its just like don’t hate. If I look good, just be like that girl looks good.”

    Cool, as long as said surgically enhanced women stop attacking the looks of women who are not.

    Apparently, plastic surgeons have been using Bernice as promotion. She said doctors have told her that women come in to have work done and use pictures of her as inspiration. She said she got inspired to have plastic surgery after the first time she went in the strip club. She encourages anyone who wants to get plastic surgery to go get it.

    As for where she got all these funds to do these surgeries....

    As for the haters, she said she doesn’t care anymore what they have to say about her having a fake a** because they’re still going to admire her pictures and keep up with what she’s doing anyway.

    We also learned Bernice had her first child when she was just 15-years-old. Her daughter, Ashley, is now 21. As a very young mother, she said she went through a lot, but her trials only made her stronger and molded her into the person she is today.

    Being a young mother, she said one time she encouraged her 15/16-year-old daughter to fight another girl who kept bullying her. Her daughter and the other girl started fighting and the other girl’s mother jumped in, so she started fighting the woman and got into a lot of trouble for it. She ended up getting arrested and charged for endangering the welfare of a child. Lordt.

    If you didn’t know, Bernice has been tapped to star on an upcoming reality show, executive produced by La La Anthony. Apparently, Bernice took an issue with radio host Angela Yee when they interviewed La La last week. Bernice didn’t like the way Yee tried to talk down on “bartenders and video vixens,” alluding that Yee was holding La to a higher standard than herself and the rest of the girls, so she called her out on it.

    As for starring on the show, Bernice said she was hesitant to do it at first, but after speaking with La it made her more comfortable that she wont’ be shown in such a negative light.

    Bernice also revealed she looks up to the Kardashian Klan and was over the moon when she and Khloe Kardashian hit it off at a party.

    These days, Bernice is a single lady and she said she’s looking for a confident man who will motivate her to do and be better.

    Chile...

    She’s keeping busy with her pajama line and she said she has a fitness video in the works. No word on if she'll include the surgeries she got as a disclaimer while working on certain body parts in the video. She keeps a steady flow of income from her hosting gigs, which she said she makes at least $5,000 per appearance.

    Peep her full interview below:

    What better way to divert fiery Herpes lawsuits than to bust out some vocals?  We kid. (Kinda) Usher is the newest passenger in James Corden's carpool karaoke.  Get into it inside...

    Usher hopped in the car with "Late Late Show" host James Corden for the newest episode of "Carpool Karoke."  It was very likely taped in advance of the Herpes debacle that started last week. But what better way to get folks to love you again than to start singing.  Y'all know how easily folks forgive when somebody drops a verse.

    James and Usher hit the road together, singing Usher's classics like "OMG" and "Caught Up" before the two worked on James' club entrance and they even helped a group of guys with some car trouble.

    Cardi B and Offset have yet to officially confirm their coupledom status, but it’s clear the two are smitten with one another.

    To celebrate his new album Wins & Losses, Meek Mill hit the stage for a pop up concert in his hometown of Philadelphia. And Cardi B was set to perform. After she hit the stage, the MMG rapper had something special up his sleeve for her. He brought out Cardi's boo meat Offset and her face said it all.

    Peep the clip below:

     

    Backstage, Offset gifted his lady with a brand new chain and she was all smiles once she put it on. The iced out piece, which is a replica of her signature hand signal, set him back about $6,000:

    A man and his girlfriend claim to have been assaulted by Draymond Green and they’re speaking out. Find out what they said, and see LeBron James’ response to the Kyrie Irving trade rumors. Get it all inside…

     photo BloomdDray.jpg

    NBA baller Draymond Green has been slapped with a lawsuit after allegedly getting into a bar fight with former Michigan State Spartans football player Jermaine Edmondson.

    Jermaine pulled the trigger on the new lawsuit against the Golden State Warriors player after an alleged assault that went down at a bar in East Lansing, Michigan in July 2016. And he has famed (or infamous, however you want to view her fame these days) attorney Lisa Bloom (Blac Chyna, R. Kelly accusers) by his side.

     photo dray1.jpg

    In a press conference today, Jermaine and his girlfriend Bianca Williams fought back tears while talking about the assault. Bianca was allegedly choked by one of Draymond’s friends and Jermaine claims Draymond punched him in the face.

    “I think about what happened with Draymond every day,” he said during the conference. “I still feel his hand on my jaw.”

    "There are nights when I wake up crying. I don’t understand why my name has turned into this joke and he gets all the credit for being a super star and standing up for women.”

    A mess.

    Jermaine said after the attack, his name was ran through the mud and he started receiving threats from Draymond’s friends, MSU students and the Warriors organization. Things got so bad, he was forced to quit the football team and he even left the university for a while because he felt unsafe.

    Now, he wants Draymond to admit what he did and to clear his name of any wrongdoing. On that day in July 2016, Draymond was arrested on a misdemeanor assault and battery charge. A week later he reached a plea deal where the charge was reduced to a civil infraction and he paid $500 in fines and court fees.

    Peep a clip of Jermaine and his girlfriend Bianca below:

     

    The couple is seeking an unspecified amount of damages. Thoughts?

    You’ve heard the rumors that Kyrie Irving has requested to be traded from the Cleveland Cavaliers. The reason behind it all is that he supposedly wants to go to a team where he’ll be the “star” player and not play in the shadows of someone else.  Someone like LeBron James.

    Shortly after, alleged sources from LeBron’s camp told ESPN analyst Stephen A. Smith that King James would be “tempted to beat his a**.”

    Well, LeBron has addressed the rumors and he says they’re FALSE. He hopped on Twitter to debunk the rumors, tweeting:

    Well, there you have it.
