Selena Gomez Goes Understated For Vogue Brazil June 2016 Cover
She’s been having a banner year thus far, and Selena Gomez just landed the front page of the June 2016 issue of Vogue Brazil.
The “Come and Get It” songstress posted an excited message to her Twitter account on Tuesday (May 24) to let her followers know the good news- "My first cover for @voguebroficial with @louisvuitton."
Miss Gomez actually has two different versions of her cover- the first in full color and the second in black and white with Louis Vuitton creative director Nicolas Ghesquiere. Looks nice.



#RHOA: Kandi Burruss has officially given the ultimate clap back after reports claimed that she was coming against NeNe Leakes and her return to the show last season.
Burruss appeared to write a tweet that reads, “Aint nobody excited to see Nene’s face back on the show, just sayin… #dramafordays”
Well Burruss uploaded a video and shut down the tweet while pointing out it clearly wasn’t her who wrote it because her name was spelled wrong. She also defended Leakes, who was accused of saying that Burruss took a “magic pill.” NeNe never posted nothing that said I took a ‘magic pill,’” Burruss added.

She then came for another tweet that reads, “I am proud of my body and I’m a BOSS B****! Lost 23lbs in 2 weeks with #cambogia. This stuff works ladies!”
She called out that tweet and said it came from another fake tweet; but spelled her name right this time.

While this isn’t the first time Burruss has been subject to this online, she then explained why she decided to speak up this time.
“I never took this bull people… Never, ever. I did not tweet this from my page. They made this up. They made a fake tweet. My friend said she was about to buy that because she thought I actually used it. I never used it in my life. I never made those tweets. Do not believe the hype people.”
Burruss ended by threatening to take legal action.

New Music Video: Watch: Maxwell Premieres “Lake By The Ocean” Video!
Maxwell has premiered the steamy music video for his fast-rising single “Lake By The Ocean,” filled with classic sensuality and gorgeous cinematography.
The story opens with a beautiful young woman, weary from carrying jugs of water in the dusty summer heat. She escapes in the evening to watch Maxwell perform in an intimate café, followed by a passionate midnight rendezvous with the R&B star.

Maxwell says the video, “depicts a world in need of water and two clandestine lovers who meet with liquid dreams, one being the bare boned need for clean water, and another, the performer, who wants to be lost in the watery worlds of love and devotion.”
Director Phillip Andelman adds, “this was such a special experience, Maxwell’s vision for this piece really allowed us to push ourselves and create something personal. Shooting in small villages and pristine coastlines immersed us into the heart of the song. I am so grateful to have been part of this journey.”
This is the first visual from Maxwell’s much-anticipated new album blackSUMMERS’night, due out July 1, his first album in seven years and the second chapter of his musical trilogy that began with 2009’s BLACKsummers’night. Starting June 18, he will embark on his SUMMERS’ Tour, including a headlining slot at the Essence Festival on July 1.

Hip Hop News: Troy Ave Arrested In Connection With Shooting At T.I. Concert
Troy Ave has been arrested in connection with last night’s shooting at a T.I. concert.

The Brooklyn rapper allegedly fired his gun in the club before accidentally shooting himself in the leg, according to the New York Daily News. He has been arrested and charged with reckless endangerment and illegal weapons possession.

Sources tell the newspaper that Ave can be seen firing a gun in surveillance clips and that he could have been aiming for Maino, who was coming off the stage at the time of the shooting. “There is clear video, very graphic video,” an insider told NYDN. “He walks right out, women all around, and starts shooting his gun. It’s an ongoing rap group rivalry, him and Maino.”
However, Maino’s lawyers have countered these claims in a letter, according to HipHopWired. “There is no feud between rappers Maino and Troy Ave and never has been,” the letter reads.

Maino also refuted claims of his involvement on Instagram.
In part, his statement reads: “I woke up to the usual FALSE and ridiculous lies being circulated by irresponsible members of the media. What transpired was absolutely NOT the result of MYSELF or ANYBODY IN MY CAMP , ENTOURAGE, TRAVELING PARTY or ORGANIZATION IN ANY WAY SHAPE OR FORM.”

More serious charges could follow Troy Ave in this case. “Police said they were awaiting the result of ballistics tests before charging Troy Ave with murder,” the paper reports.
As previously reported, one man was killed during the chaos last night. The Daily News claims the man was Ronald “Edgar” McPhatter (also known as B$B Banga), who is reportedly a close associate of Troy’s. McPhatter’s mother, Rose, has publicly criticized Ave for not offering his condolences following the incident.

“He actually cared a lot about Troy Ave,” she told the paper. “My wish is that Troy Ave cared as much about my son as he cared about him. I say that because I watched how my son would always bend over backwards to help him. If [Troy Ave] cared about my son as much as he alleged he does, I would’ve received a call from him. He didn’t call me. He didn’t call any of my other sons.
T.I.—who is not believed to be involved in the feud and who did not perform at the club despite being the planned headliner—has offered his condolences via social media. “My heart is heavy today,” he wrote. “Our music is intended to save lives like it has mine and many others. My heartfelt condolences to the family that suffered the loss & my prayers are with all those injured.”

WOW!



Rihanna Collaborates With Dior On Sunglass Collection
From Puma to Manolo Blahnik, Rihanna has taken the fashion world by storm. And now the fashionista has landed another major designer deal with Dior.

As part of her brand ambassadorship, the “Work” singer has collaborated with the French fashion house on a collection of futuristic sunglasses simply called “Rihanna.” According to WWD, the frames will be sold exclusively at Dior retail stores starting in early June.
The one style is available in silver, pink, blue, green, and red, and will retail for $840, while a deluxe 24-karat gold-plated version will cost $1,950.
This is not RiRi’s first time working with Dior. Last year, the 28-year-old was named the company’s first black spokeswoman and starred in their “Secret Garden IV” campaign, shot by Steven Klein in Versailles.
“We are very pleased to partner for the second time with Rihanna,” said Dior chief executive officer Sidney Toledano. “She is an artist, an entertainer, an entrepreneur, a philanthropist, and a style icon for today’s generation.”
Rihanna visited Dior’s headquarters in October to meet with the eyewear design. Her vintage 2000 frame was inspired by Lieutenant Commander Geordi La Forge from “Star Trek.”
“I’ve always been obsessed with his eyewear, and when I got to Dior and saw all the materials I could play with, it all just came together,” she said.
While there is no official campaign, photographer Jean-Baptiste Mondino shot Rihanna in the frames for a series of editorial images.
Rihanna, who is also Puma’s Creative Director, recently launched her own “Denim Desserts” footwear collection with Manolo Blahnik and inked a $10 million deal with LVMH MoĂ«t Hennessy Louis Vuitton for a makeup line.

Diddy Undergoes Rotator Cuff Surgery Following Bad Boy Reunion Shows
Diddy and the Bad Boy family had the Barclays Center on fire with their reunion concert this past Friday and Saturday night, and after putting on such a show for the hype crowd, the music mogul underwent rotator cuff surgery yesterday.

My arm will be in a sling for while and I may not be dancing as usual but I’m on the road to recovery!! Thank everyone for the prayers and support!!! #GodBless #love.” Diddy also shared that this is his fourth rotator cuff surgery.

He is scheduled to hit the road with Lil’ Kim, Ma$e, Faith Evans and more of the Bad Boy family, for their Bad Boy Family Reunion Tour – set to kick off in August.

Wishing Diddy a speedy recovery!

Did Zayn Malik dump Gigi Hadid just after her birthday & the Met Gala?
A few days ago, Zayn Malik went for a walk with a blonde who is not Gigi Hadid. Zayn and the mystery blonde looked friendly, perhaps even flirtatious – go here to see the photos. The headline most sites ran with was “Zayn went for a hike in mismatched shoes,” which is true, he was wearing mismatched shoes. But I’m more interested in what was happening with the mystery blonde.

Ever since those photos came out, I’ve been wondering… do you think Zayn and Gigi split up? They’re young, so if they have broken up, it’s probably not the end of their story. But I am getting a weird vibe. So is Life & Style (via Hollywood Life).

A new report claims Zayn Malik, 23, and Gigi Hadid, 21, have broken up, and to make matters worse — they haven’t been photographed together since May 7. Zayn and Gigi reportedly split after the model’s 21st birthday and the Met Gala, with the former taking place in late April and the latter on May 5.

“Zayn broke the news to Gigi two weeks after her birthday,” a source told Life & Style. “He sat her down at dinner and told her how he felt. Zayn told Gigi that he wanted to keep his options open and work on himself. Gigi was shocked because she thought they were a perfect couple. She is absolutely heartbroken and has been feeling really sad ever since.”
Zayn and Gigi have not been photographed in public together since May 7. This evidence would certainly go along with the timeline of the new report. May 7 was about two weeks after Gigi’s birthday. However, we must note — Gigi posted an Instagram picture of herself with Zayn on May 21. We assume it’s an old photo because in the caption, she wrote, “missing you.” Either work is just keeping them apart, or she’s missing him post-split.

[From Hollywood Life]
I’m including Gigi’s Instagram below. “Missing you” is vague enough to go with my theory/vibe that something did happen. The thing about is though… I’m not sure Zayn would do the dumping? WOULD HE? I mean, Gigi is HOT. She’s not only beautiful, her career just keeps getting bigger and bigger too. My point is that for Zayn, there’s nowhere else to go. There is no “trading up” from Gigi. But then again, I do think Zayn has a self-destructive streak. Maybe this isn’t the end. I hope not, because I do love them together for some strange reason.

BREAKING: T.I. NYC Show Erupts In Gunfire; 1 Dead, 3 Wounded




FOLLOW ME ON TWITTER!

BREAKING: T.I. New York Show Erupts In Gunfire; 1 Dead, 3 Wounded
T.I.‘s Irving Plaza show in New York City ended when shots were fired at the popular venue last night (May 25) during the rapper’s concert.
Fans waited for more than two hours for T.I. to hit the stage, with PNB Rock performing three songs between time. But a packed Irving Plaza descended into chaos as concertgoers fled to the nearest exits after an unknown shooter began to fire his weapon repeatedly backstage. Multiple rounds echoed throughout the venue as stampedes attempted to flee the building. Unable to exit, many people found themselves trapped on the floor with the shooter because it was too crowded to move.
Eventually, the gunshots ceased as hundreds of fans made their way onto the street, flooding the Union Square neighborhood. But another shot was heard from inside Irving Plaza. Ultimately one man was left dead and three people wounded.

It’s not confirmed whether or not the Atlanta rapper played any role in last night’s incidents, but an alleged member of his entourage grabbed the mic during the chaos to let the crowd know, “Someone done f—ed it up for everybody.” Fire trucks, several ambulance and multiple marked and unmarked NYPD vehicles surround the venue and neighboring blocks in minutes. The shooter seemingly escaped arrest; leaving the venue before the police arrived. The NYPD proceeded to canvas lower Manhattan in an effort to capture the gunman. Accoding to the New York Times, a spokesman for the NYPD said one of the Men arrived at New York University Medical Center on his own. The motives for the shooting is unclear and no arrests have been made as of Wednesday night.

More on this story as it develops further. There's also RAW VIDEO below

The Daily Buzz For May 26



Kerry Washington, Regina King & More Grace ‘The Hollywood Reporter’
Kerry Washington, Jennifer Lopez and Regina King join Julianna Margulies, Sarah Paulson, Kirsten Dunst and Constance Zimmer on the cover of the last issue of The Hollywood Reporter. The actresses are dressed in simple white, nude and peach toned pieces and gathered together to discuss nudity, network fights and the ‘diva’ label among other important things.
“You have a little bit of a safety [on network television],” Kerry told THR in regards to nudity in the acting world. “Part of it for me is the director and the producers and that trust. There have been times in my career where the nudity wasn’t about the story, it wasn’t about the character, it was just because that shit sells.”
“It’s the opposite for me once I had kids,” said Jennifer Lopez. “In videos and things that I do, I’m very sexy and wear little clothes, but the truth is, when it comes to acting, I did it earlier in my career and now I just don’t feel sometimes that you have to do it. I’ve changed in that sense.”
When the ladies were asked whether or not empathy was a key part of playing a real life public figure, (i.e Sarah Paulson as Marcia Clark on The People vs OJ Simpson and Kerry who played Attorney Anita Hill in the HBO film Confirmation) Kerry said: I think it is because you have to embody that. I have to love the person I’m playing — even if you have a hard time loving them, I have to love them. For me, it was tricky because as a producer [on Confirmation], I wanted to produce a film about the hearings that was really complicated and where you felt pulled toward all of the characters. And I wanted all of the actors to feel enormous compassion for their [characters]. This is not a he said, she said; it’s a real, complicated portrait of how everybody was doing the best they could with what they had at the time. But as an actor, I was like, “It’s all about Anita [Hill].” (Laughs.) So, the developing of the script was where I really tried to lean into the other characters and make sure that the story felt very balanced and that I felt compassion toward all of them; but there was a point about two weeks before shooting where I was like, “Peace out, you’re on your own, I got her now and you guys have to protect those other people.”

RHOA’s Nene Tries To Sing w/Smokey At Johnny Gill’s B-Day & Uh…She TRIED
Real Housewives of Atlanta” star, Nene Leakes and the legendary Smokey Robinson were just a few of the celebs that set it off at Johnny Gill’s 50th birthday party yesterday, but Smokey and Nene were the two that made the highlight of the b-day party when they sang together. And we’ll just put it like this ILOSM fam’- Not everyone is a songbird, some of us are vocally challenged. With that said, take a look at a short video clip of Nene and Smokey singing their “woo-woo-woos” with Jeffrey Osborne and Kenny Lattimore.

Nene was put on the spot when Smokey singled her out in the crowd, but she was a good sport about it- and besides, who cares about pitch when you're singing in front of a room full of professional singers right? LOL. We still love you though Nene! Check out the video. HERE 

Nene's the only female voice you hear singing on the mic.

LOL!!!!



#EMPIRE Terrence Howard & Mira Pak Expecting Second Child
Terrence Howard and Mira Pak are expecting their second child. The Empire star’s wife debuted her growing baby bump at the Empire FYC ATAS celebration held at the Zanuck Theater in Los Angeles on Friday.
The couple wed in 2013, and welcomed their first child, Qirin Love, last May. Mira filed for divorce from Terrence in 2015, saying they had separated in 2014, but the couple surprised fans; showing up at the 2015 EMMY Awards together last September.

They shoot and score once again. The Roots join forces with the National Basketball Association for “Champion,” the official theme song for this year’s NBA Finals.

“Success in life comes when you simply refuse to give up,” Black Thought explains in the intro. “On a mission so strong that obstacles like failure and loss only act as motivation.”
Then, when the rhymes kick off, Black Thought continues firing on all inspiring cylinders. “I fell in love with the game and never looked back,” he raps. “My foundation and frame, they never shook that / Been trailblazing my name into the book that / Represents all the champs who had a chance and took that.”

The winner of each series will move on for a chance at the Larry O’Brien trophy.



Milan Christopher shows shocking photo from alleged Miles Brock fight
Like most artists, Milan Christopher uses the drama of his personal life play as inspiration for his music. He and fellow “Love & Hip Hop Hollywood” star Miles Brock definitely had one of the most drama-filled relationships on the show last season. However, the drama went beyond typical he say, she say and cheating scandals and culminated in one shockingly violent night. Now, Milan has opened up about the night with an eye-popping new photo.

Milan recently released a video for his single “When I Go” and in the clip he plays a man who is not only harassed on the street for being gay, but he’s also beaten by his boyfriend after the harassment incident.
The video culminates in Milan’s character swallowing a bunch of pills and then jumping into a pool to commit suicide.

For most fans, the clip came as a sobering and shocking look into Milan’s mind. But the reality TV star gave fans even more to talk about last night when he opened up about his real-life experience of domestic violence.
As previously reported, Milan had Miles arrested last year after he accused Miles and his friends of attacking him during a Halloween party in NYC.
Although it’s been months since he’s spoken about the alleged attack, Milan opened up about it last night and explained how the incident gave him inspiration for his latest video. He also shared a shocking photo of a scar on his forehead, which he claims he got as a result of Miles hitting him.

“Here’s some never before seen pics from when I was attacked by my ex. I still remember it like it was yesterday. The attack … The attack by the person I called my lover, my friend. The bombardment of my personal space by not just him but his friends. The disrespect.. The humility. The hurt. I remember it all. I remember picking up the phone and the 1st persons I called was @monascottyoung & @stefateaser … I was so scared that I would get fired from the show I was on, that I kept that I was actually punched from them. I remember standing in the mirror and asking myself … Why would someone I loved so much do this to me. I remember being so confused not knowing if I was still in love or not or thinking was things going to get better between me and him, so I never once went to court. I remember the pain & the hurt but most of all I remember feeling helpless! I wish my music video was art imitating life, but it is actually my life manifesting through my art. I wish I could muster up the time to make an amateur dis track, or tell lies to the masses. I’m not that person all I can do is be me, like me, love me or hate me.. That’s all I can do. I will continue to create music and videos that relate to my life which hopefully influences others like me or people who have gone through or going through the things I have. I love you guys & wish you all the best #milanchristopher #BeYourAuthenticself #Amberrose #Zendaya #Chrisbrown #Rihanna #TheGame #SkaiJackson #NEWMUSICVIDEO #Madonna #BBMAs #Prince #BetAwards #Vh1 #LoveAndHipHop #Mtv #LoveAndHipHop #Beyonce #JustinBieber #Adele #Taylorswift,” Milan captioned the post.
Miles has yet to comment on the post but we wouldn’t be surprised if he says something about it in the near future. For now, we can say that Milan is definitely going to get a lot of attention for this post and his new video.



Former Bad Boy acts not happy about Puff Daddy snubbing them
’90’s hip-hop and R&B fans have been overjoyed as of late thanks to Puff Daddy’s latest Bad Boy Records 20th Anniversary Reunion Tour, which launched last Friday. And although the tour is, of course, featuring some of Bad Boy’s most iconic acts, some of Puff’s former stars recently spoke out on the tour and explained that they feel snubbed by not being asked to join the tour, as well.

As previously reported, the reunion tour recently had a two-night stint at the Barclays Center in New York that featured top Bad Boy Acts like Faith Evans, 112, Total, Ma$e, French Montana and The LOX, as well as superstar guests like Mary J. Blige, Lil’ Kim, Jay Z, Nas, Usher, DMX and Swizz Beats. What Saturday’s show even more special is that it fell upon the birthday of Bad Boy’s biggest star ever, the late great Notorious B.I.G.

With such a major lineup, fans, of course, have been sharing their praise for the tour all weekend. However, according to media reports, some have noted that former Bad Boy acts like Da Band, B5 and Diddy Dirty Money weren’t invited on the tour and some of the former acts recently spoke out about being snubbed by their former mentor.
Dustin Michael of Puff’s former boy band B5 spoke about the snub and explained that he was hurt that Puff didn’t consider them worthy enough to hit the stage for the tour.
“We just felt like our relationship [with Diddy] was better than that,” Michael said.
Former Da Band singer Sara Stokes also spoke about the snub and explained that her group deserved a spot on the tour because of the indelible mark they made on pop culture with Puff.

“We made history with Diddy on ‘Making the Band’ and pretty much opened the doors for all the other reality shows,” Stokes said.
However, her former group mate, Babs Bunny, said that she’s not upset about the snub and that she’d still buy a ticket to go see the show.

Honestly, we doubt that many fans are upset about B5, Da Band, Day 26 or even Danity Kane not being on the tour roster. But do you think those groups deserved a spot on the tour?



My, My My Celebs Come out To Celebrate New Edition Singer Johnny Gill’s 50th Birthday!
Several of Johnny’s celeb friends stepped out for the “50 Shades of Johnny” themed bash held at a private Bel-Air mansion. Johnny’s longtime friend Nicole Murphy (who’s ex-husband Eddie Murphy is Johnny’s bestie), was on the scene for the festivities. You’ll recall, Nicole starred as Johnny’s on-screen love interest in his video “Behind Closed Doors" in 2014.
“Empire”star/rapper Bryshere “Yazz” Gray, who’s gearing up to star as Michael Bivins in the New Edition biopic, and New Edition singer Ricky Bell also came out to wish the birthday boy a Happy Birthday. Yazz recently cut his hair to transform into Michael for the miniseries and he's currently filming in L.A. along with the cast.
The Georgia peaches were in the building! “Real Housewives of Atlanta” stars Cynthia Bailey and NeNe Leakes stepped out to sip on some bubbly and party the night away.

it appears these two are indeed an item.
Other guests included  legendary artist Debbie Allen, actress Sheryl Lee Ralph came out for the fun:
Looking good ladies!
Johnny took center stage to perform his hit track "My My My" for his guests and he didn't miss a beat.

Fun times. Happy Birthday Johnny!



Chris Brown has Started Another Feud And This Time He Might Lose
OH BOYEE! Chris Brown is angering folks with his antics once again.

Breezy’s Tarzana, California neighbors have been complaining about the singer riding ATVs at high speeds through the neighborhood, endangering children and pets. Chris fired back on Instagram with a screenshot of a news broadcast about the feud and a comment reading, “What Neighbors???”
This isn’t the first time Chris Brown has gotten in trouble with his ATVs. Earlier this month, video taken by one of his neighbors showed the 27-year-old driving the 4-wheeler around nearby land with a friend.

No word on whether Chris will face any punishment, but riding an ATV on a public street is illegal and his neighbors don’t seem like they will tolerate it.



11 States Sue Obama Administration Over Transgender Bathroom Access
The federal government is requiring public schools to allow trans students to use bathrooms that match their gender identity.
Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton (R) and officials in 10 additional states have filed a lawsuit against the Obama administration after it told schools and colleges to allow transgender students to use the bathroom that matches their gender identity to comply with existing civil rights laws.

The lawsuit was announced Wednesday afternoon. Texas is joined by Alabama, Wisconsin, West Virginia, Tennessee, Arizona, Maine, Oklahoma, Louisiana, Utah and Georgia in the suit.

The federal guidance, announced earlier this month, requires public schools to protect transgender students from harassment and allow them to use bathrooms and locker rooms consistent with the gender they identify with, regardless of what’s on their birth certificate. The administration cites Title IX, the federal law that prohibits discrimination based on sex.  
“No student should ever have to go through the experience of feeling unwelcome at school or on a college campus,” said Education Secretary John King Jr.

President Barack Obama defended the action earlier this month.
“It is part of our obligation as a society to make sure everybody is treated fairly,” he said.
The move drew a strong rebuke from Republican governors, including Mississippi’s Phil Bryant, Arkansas’ Asa Hutchinson and Kentucky’s Matt Bevin. Texas Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick (R) said he’d be willing to forfeit billions in federal education funding to fight the federal guidance. GOP lawmakers in Oklahoma even introduced a measure to impeach Obama over it.

“[The Obama administration has] conspired to turn workplaces and educational settings across the country into laboratories for a massive social experiment, flouting the democratic process, and running roughshod over commonsense policies protecting children and basic privacy rights,” reads the complaint. “Absent action in Congress, the States, or local communities, Defendants cannot foist these radical changes on the nation.”
The bathroom controversy is rooted in a transphobic myth that by allowing trans people to use the facility consistent with their gender identity, schools are leaving students susceptible to predators. There is no evidence that this actually happens, and as HuffPost’s Noah Michelson pointed out, laws already forbid predatory actions.

Human Rights Campaign communications director Jay Brown criticized Paxton’s lawsuit, referencing his challenge to the Supreme Court’s ruling on same-sex marriage last summer.
“Ken Paxton has already disgraced himself and his office by undermining the rule of law and shamefully encouraging state officials to ignore the U.S. Supreme Court’s marriage equality decision last June. Now, he’s gone so far as to attack transgender youth, whom he has a responsibility to protect as Attorney General,” Brown said in a statement. “Ken Paxton’s use of taxpayer resources to dismantle such protections is a reckless and expensive abdication of his responsibilities, and he should be held accountable.”
