The Daily Buzz For April 24


Kelly Rowland looks FAB for Australia’s Sunday Life Magazine!
Kelly Rowland looks radiant in these pics she took for Australia’s Sunday Life Magazine. She talks about her time with Destiny’s Child.One of the three key members of the wildly successful late-'90s girl band Destiny's Child, it has taken Rowland – who still counts former bandmate Beyoncé as one of her closest friends – time to feel comfortable in her own skin. This road to self-acceptance has underpinned a flourishing solo career as a singer, actor, mentor and author, and made her determined to empower other women. 

"Bey always says to be authentic," she explains after the shoot, when she's changed back into her Esprit hoodie, denim cut-offs and Stan Smith trainers. "Some people get it early – Solange [Knowles] got it sooo early, she always made up her own rules. I think with me it comes with age." 
A 20-year veteran of the entertainment industry, Rowland can still recall the best piece of career advice she's ever received. "Outwork everybody," she says emphatically. "So many people want the same thing or have the same dream you do, and what separates you from everybody else is your work ethic. There's always room to work harder."
She has taken the advice to heart. Not only is she appearing as a judge on the new season of The Voice in Australia, she's also promoting the US girl band she helped form, June's Diary, has just published a baby manual, Whoa, Baby!, is launching her own make-up line and writing a new album.
She is equally driven when it comes to her appearance – she works with two trainers to maintain her incredibly toned figure and has perfected her own look to such an extent that she's largely doing her own make-up while she's here.
"I'm giving myself to so many different things and projects, and at the end of the day I'm exhausted," she says, bursting out laughing. "I'm exhausted because I want to be a great wife, and I want to be a great mother, but I want to be a great me to myself."

#RHoA: Phaedra Parks and Kandi Burruss Go at It at the Reunion!
Hungry for conflict. Phaedra Parks and Kandi Burruss butt heads over Burruss' new business venture during the second part of The Real Housewives of Atlanta's season 9 reunion on Sunday, April 23, as seen in Us Weekly's exclusive sneak peek. 
The Bravo unscripted series' preview clip shows Parks telling host Andy Cohen that it was "deplorable" for Mama Joyce to visit a lawyer earlier in the season in an effort to find out if Parks is legally able to divorce Apollo Nida while he's in prison. 

"I'm like, Why are you so concerned with what's going on in my life?" Parks, 43, asks Burruss, 40. "It's been so many things that her mom has said and done."
Parks adds that Joyce could instead be looking into why Burruss and Todd Tucker's Atlanta restaurant, Old Lady Gang, has yet to open. "Your restaurant that's not open — she could be working on that," Parks says.
Burruss fires back, "Um, we are opening this week, sweetheart." (Old Lady Gang indeed opened its doors last month.) The Xscape singer then claims that Parks has been contacting public officials to make it difficult for the eatery to launch. "Please [be aware] I know you already be trying to do your calling and trying to figure what we're doing, and so you can hate on us to people that you know down at the city," Burruss says. "Obviously, she's talked to somebody to try to do stuff, to have them come at me about bulls--t."


LOL! The Real Housewives of Atlanta airs on Bravo Sundays at 8 p.m. ET.


#EMPIRE: Did you know that Taraji P Henson has North Carolina roots?
Award-winning actress and star of Fox’s hit drama “Empire” Taraji P. Henson has fond memories of visiting North Carolina every summer.
The Washington D.C. native spent every summer in Scotland Neck and also regularly gets back to visit her aunt and uncle who live in Raleigh.
“I was here just there last weekend celebrating my grandmother’s 93rd birthday,” Henson said, following her keynote address at Women’s Empowerment at PNC Arena on Saturday.

Henson said she flies under the radar during her visits.
“I dress like the Unabomber,” Henson said.
Henson also has another North Carolina connection. She briefly attended North Carolina Agricultural and Technical College to study electrical engineering. “I auditioned for the School for the Performing Arts in D.C. and I didn’t get accepted, so I thought I couldn’t act,” Henson said. “So I did what a girlfriend of mine, who was mathematically and scientifically inclined, did and I followed behind her.”
Despite trying her best and having tutors, Henson said she still failed. “I knew deep down that wasn’t what I wanted to do, I just wanted to do something with my life because my mom would kill me,” Henson said. “I had go to college.”
Henson ended up going home to D.C. and studying drama at Howard University.
For anyone trying to achieve something in life, Henson said the key is to never give up.

“You have to go for it. You only get one life. Why second guess yourself,” she said, noting that all you need is a little faith. “Whisper it to yourself every day, say it out loud, ‘I can do this.’”
Empire returns to Fox Wednesday with new episodes, so expect more of Cookie’s famous one-liners.
“Most of the saying come from my real life,” Henson said. “Sometimes the writers will come up with something clever, but a lot of the time it is me.”
Henson takes credit for the nickname “Boo Boo Kitty” and the “hair smelling like a goat’s (butt)” lines.

“I got another zinger coming for you stay tuned,” Henson teased.
She even surprises herself in some of the scenes. “It’s like I’m in the moment and it flies out of my mouth,” Henson said.
And for fans concerned Henson might leave the popular show to expand her film career, Cookie isn’t going anywhere.

“I got bills. I ain’t going nowhere,” Henson said. “I’m going to be there until it’s over.”


#NewMusic Video: Faith Evans & The Notorious B.I.G. – 'Legacy'
Faith Evans returns to Brooklyn to celebrate her late husband, The Notorious B.I.G. in the visuals for her new single “Legacy,” off the anticipated duet album The King & I.
The video–directed by Rock Davis and Jay Rodriguez–finds Faith reminiscing on memories of Biggie, with some assistance from friends like Lil’ Cease and Maino, along with vintage footage of BIG

“I knew, I knew from the very first moment / That you were a king, fit just for a queen / I could tell from day one, you were for me / Knew that this love would be the legacy,” she sings.
Faith revealed why “Legacy” was such an important single to release. “If there were a title track for The King & I, it would be ‘Legacy,’” she said. “This song absolutely sums up the theme of the album.”
“Legacy” follows The King & I singles “Ten Wife Commandments,” “When We Party” with Snoop Dogg, and “NYC” featuring Jadakiss.

Due May 19, The King & I also features appearances from Lil’ Kim, 112, Busta Rhymes, Cease, and more. Check out the “Legacy” video HERE 


#NewHipHop Video From Nicki Minaj Feat. Drake & Lil Wayne – ‘No Frauds’
All hail the queen. Nicki Minaj holds court with her royal family, Drake and Lil Wayne, in the majestic video for “No Frauds.”
Directed by Benny Boom, the fashionable clip is a trip across the pond. Featuring scenes shot in London and in the U.S., the video also showcases Young Money’s reunited and renewed energy as “The Big Three.”

Decked out in Alexander McQueen, Philipp Plein, and Charbel Zoe, “No Frauds” finds DeGeneres Queen ruling her kingdom. Whether sitting on her throne or in front of Big Ben, throwing shots next to Drizzy, or on a throne next to Weezy, Minaj makes her royal statement clear.
While she sits pretty, Nicki is not afraid to throw vicious shots at rival Remy Ma. This is especially true when Reminisce’s former friend Rashida “Rah” Ali shows up for a cameo as Nicki raps: “Rah took you to her doc, but you don’t look like Rah / Left the operating table, still look like nah.”

WATCH HERE:

Prior to releasing the visual, Nicki called it “iconic” and described the vibes on the set as “fun, free…euphoric” and “nostalgic” in large part due to her collaborators. “So good shooting w/my babies again,” she tweeted. “Missed them a lot. Young Money.”
Nicki also promised her fans that “No Frauds” would supersede any of her past visuals. “It’s definitely the best video I’ve ever released,” she said.

The “No Frauds” clip arrives shortly after Nicki previewed her forthcoming Mert & Marcus-directed mini-movie for “Regret in Your Tears.”

Live Nation re-enters new deal with Jay Z’s RocNation
Live Nation have decided to enter into a new contract with Jay Z’s RocNation! 
From Billboard Magazine"Live Nation has a new long term deal with Jay Z and we expect to continue being equity partners in Roc Nation for many years to come," the spokesperson told Billboard in a statement.
While terms of the new deal were not disclosed, the new agreement does not appear to be an extension of the current 360 arrangement, and instead mostly covers his touring business.
Jay Z and Live Nation will continue to operate Roc Nation’s management and recorded music business as a joint venture. Live Nation has let many of its 360 recorded-music deals sunset and has largely gotten out of the recorded music business, although through its various joint ventures it does retain some label holdings.


Hailee Steinfeld Meets Up With Usher at JDRF Imagine Gala 2017

Hailee and Andra both took to the stage that evening for special performances. But lets focus on Usher with the Puppy!
The day before, Hailee‘s new music video for “At My Best” with Machine Gun Kelly premiered. Be sure to check it out if you haven’t already!


Kylie And Khloe Chased Off By Fur Protest Chants ...
(via TMZ) Kylie Jenner and Sister Khloe felt the heat from animal rights protesters, and got the hell out ... cutting short a photo op in Vegas amid chants that she has the blood of innocent animals on her hands. 
Kylie was attending the grand opening of Sugar Factory Saturday night, where she paused for photos on the red carpet ... before being bum-rushed by the protesters. 
Sounds like their specific beef is with Kylie wearing fur -- which she was not doing at the event, but has in the past. Protesters were loud, but never got physical with Kylie ... unlike those who nailed her sister, Kim, years ago.
Some of Kylie's furs have been advertised as fake in the past, but that clearly doesn't matter to the activists here. Faux or not ... they don't appreciate her flaunting fur.

Aaron Hernandez Killed Odin Lloyd Because He Was Secretly Gay? 😲 👀


Aaron Hernandez Killed Odin Lloyd Because He Was Secretly Gay?
Aaron Hernandez’s sex life is in the spotlight as multiple news outlets have revealed that he wrote a suicide note to his alleged gay prison lover. But this isn’t the first time that the deceased football player’s sexuality has been examined. According to Newsweek, Hernandez’s personal life was closely examined during the investigation into the murder of Odin Lloyd, a crime that the former Patriots tight-end would be convicted for.
As Newsweek reports, when Hernandez was convicted of killing his friend, a semi-professional football player dating his fiancée’s sister, it looked like there was no motive. However, conversations with law enforcement officials revealed that Odin Lloyd knew that Hernandez was bisexual and that the NFL star wanted his sexual orientation to be kept a secret. Apparently, Hernandez was also involved in a longtime relationship with a male friend from high school, which was also a closely guarded secret.

According to investigators, right before Hernandez was arrested for killing Lloyd, he transferred three large sums of money from his accounts. One bank transfer went to his fiancée and another to his daughter. The third and largest sum of money went to that male friend, Newsweek reports.
All of this gives more clarity to reports that Aaron Hernandez addressed one of his suicide notes to an alleged prison boyfriend. According to the Daily Mail, that inmate is currently on what’s called “eyeball to eyeball” suicide watch. This person, who has not been identified, is thought to be the last person to see Aaron Hernandez alive.

Aaron Hernandez was found dead in his prison cell on April 19 of an apparent suicide. Details of his death paint a disturbing picture of his mental health.
As the Daily Mail reports, Hernandez scrawled a bible verse in red ink across his forehead before he hung himself. The bible verse was John 3:16 which reads: “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.” There was also a Bible found near the body that was turned to that verse.

There were also signs that Hernandez meticulously planned the suicide. There was soap and shampoo on the floor so that he would be able to save himself if he lost his desire to die. He also gave away all of his prison belongings to other inmates.
“Chief Medical Examiner Dr. Henry N. Nields performed an autopsy on Mr. Hernandez on Wednesday and concluded today that the manner of death was suicide and the cause asphyxia by hanging,” Massachusetts District Attorney Joseph D. Early, Jr. said via a statement on Thursday.

“An investigation into the death by the State Police Detectives assigned to the District Attorney’s Office and Department of Correction investigators found cardboard jammed into the door tracks of his single-inmate cell to impede entry into the cell.”
The report from the medical examiner also confirmed that Hernandez’s death was caused by suicide, something that his lawyer had disputed after news of his death went public.
“There were no signs of a struggle, and investigators determined that Mr. Hernandez was alone at the time of the hanging,” the report stated. “Mr. Hernandez was locked in his cell about 8 p.m. and no one entered the cell until a correction officer observed him at 3:03 a.m. and forced his way through the impeded door to render aid.”

Aaron Hernandez was 27-year-old when he was found dead

The Daily Buzz For April 21


Viola Davis, John Legend, Riz Ahmed and More Stars Land Covers for Time's 100 Most Influential
The list is out!

As is tradition, Time released its annual list of the 100 most influential people for 2017, featuring power players from all walks of life. Among the familiar faces on the list are acclaimed Hollywood stars like Oscar winners Viola Davis and Emma Stone, comedians like Leslie Jones and Jordan Peele, musicians like Alicia Keys and Demi Lovato, TV personalities like James Corden and RuPaul, athletes like Colin Kaepernick and Simone Biles, tech titans like Snapchat founder Evan Spiegel and Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos and world leaders like President Donald Trump and Pope Francis.
In addition to Davis and Bezos, John Legend, Melinda Gates and Riz Ahmed were also chosen for five of this year's covers. As Lin-Manuel Miranda excitedly wrote about the Star Wars actor, "Look! We're alive at the same time as Riz Ahmed! Look!"
Xi Jinping, president of the People's Republic of China, appears on the list for his eighth time, the most of anyone featured this year. Activist for LGBT rights, Gavin Grimm is the youngest person on the list at 17 years old while Sandra Day O'Connor, the first female Supreme Court Justice, is the eldest at 87.
Notable figures like Meryl Streep, Oprah Winfrey and Buzz Aldrin also worked behind the scenes to pen tributes to this year's featured influential people.

Supermodel and entrepreneur Tyra Banks honored model and body activist Ashley Graham for her ongoing contributions to the fashion industry. "Every Graham of her body embraces anyone who ever doubted themselves," Banks wrote. "It is time for everyone to bow down to the fashion industry's—no, make that beauty's—new queen."

"He's like a fighter who pops back up on his feet before you even noticed he'd been knocked down," Taylor Swift said of her friend, Ed Sheeran.
"Like no one else—that's what Margot Robbie's like," Wolf of Wall Street director Martin Scorsese described his leading lady.
"Anyone—friends and fans alike—can tell you that James doesn't take himself, or others, too seriously," Elton John described Corden. "And that's why he's able to make us laugh, cry and sing—sometimes all at once."

This year's issue will hit newsstands April 21.

#NEWMUSIC from TLC – Way Back Feat. Snoop Dogg
Following the announcement of their upcoming album’s release date, TLC gets the fire going by dropping the project’s lead single “Way Back,” featuring legendary rapper Snoop Dogg.
“It’s been a long, long time coming,” member T-Boz declares as she kicks off the mellow, bombastic record. Those lyrics will definitely bring a sense of calmness to fans, who have been waiting a long time for the Kickstarter-funded LP.
Tionne and Chilli’s final album, currently untitled and funded by fans on Kickstarter, is scheduled to arrive on June 30th.

#NEWHIPHOP from Big Boi Feat. Adam Levine – ‘Mic Jack’
Big Boi just announced his Boomiverse LP and released its “Kill Jill” single with Killer Mike and Jeezy, but he isn’t done dropping new music. On Thursday (Apr. 20), Daddy Fat Saxxx unleashed his Adam Levine collaboration, “Mic Jack.”
From the outset, it’s clear that the DJ Dahi-produced “Mic Jack” is a tribute of sorts to Michael Jackson with its name, its beat, and its MJ-like screams in the background. But it’s also clearly a nod to the classic OutKast track “SpottiOttieDopaliscious.”

“Ni**as still ain’t fuckin’ with Hollywood Court,” raps General Patton. “But stay fuckin’ wit’ ya boi like the Hollywood dope / Everything Big, no comin’ up short / Jack the buzzer beater up, all net, half court.”
The line is reminiscent of the aforementioned Sleepy Brown-assisted slapper off Aquemini, in which André 3000 says: “It’s only about 3 a.m. and three ni**as just done got hauled off in the ambulance, two ni**as done start bustin’, and one ni**a done took his shirt off talkin’ ’bout, ‘Now who else wanna fuck with Hollywood Court?’ It’s just my interpretation of the situation.”
The Maroon 5 frontman lends a hand, offering a melodic hook with robotic effects. “You’re hotter than July,” he sings. “Super colder than December / You got me dancing / The dance floor tells no lies / Give them something to remember / You got me dancing.”

LISTEN HERE
Daddy Fat Saxxx will be “dancing” his way onto “The Tonight Show” on April 24, where he will perform “Mic Jack” for the first time. Meanwhile, Boomiverse is set to drop in June.

Chris Brown owes a Tampa Nightclub $30,000
Chris Brown might have to pay $30,000 over  incident  at a Tampa nightclub.

A Tampa nightclub is seeking money from Chris Brown after he made a brief appearance, in which he allegedly punched a photographer early Monday morning then dipped.  Because of his early exit, the club is asking for the “Party” singer to fork over the $30,000 that he was paid for his appearance. Brown was reportedly only in attendance for five minutes before engaging in the brawl and left the club right after the incident. (TMZ)


ISIS Claims Responsibility For Paris Shooting That Killed Policeman
ISIS has claimed responsibility for the Paris shooting that left a police officer dead today, several news organizations reported after hours of speculation.
CNN reported on its website just after 2:30 PM PT that the sole shooter was “known to French security services for radical Islamist activities,” and that the immediate “danger is likely over.”

The incident began just before 9 PM local time Thursday on the Champs-Élysées in central Paris, near the Arc de Triomphe, when a gunman jumped out of a car that had pulled up to a police vehicle, then opened fire, killing a police officer and wounding at least two others. A spokesman for the French Interior Ministry confirmed that the gunman was shot dead while fleeing on foot.

French police put the area under lock-down as the Paris prosecutor’s office began a terrorism investigation. The incident comes just three days before Sunday’s first round of the country’s presidential election.
The cable news channels had held off on confirming the shooting as terrorism, even as President Donald Trump, speaking at a previously scheduled press conference, already suggested as much. “What can you say, it just never ends,” Trump said.

“Our condolences from our country to the people of France,” Trump said during the televised joint presser with Italy’s President Sergio Mattarella at the White House. “Again it’s happening, it seems. I just saw it as I was walking in. It’s a terrible thing, and it’s a very, very terrible thing that’s going on in the world today. But it looks like another terrorist attack, and what can you say? It just never ends.”

Prince’s estate sues over release of song by producer
Millions of Prince fans were delighted when a previously unreleased song was made available to the public by a former producer. The song titled ‘Deliverance’ was posted to iTunes and SoundCloud by Rogue Media Alliance and producer George Boxill. However, lawyers for the singer’s estate are crying foul and have filed a federal lawsuit against the producer and RMA. According to estate lawyers, Boxill had a confidentiality agreement that stated all recordings “would remain Prince’s sole and exclusive property.”

The lawsuit maintains that the agreement with Boxill states that he “would not use any recordings or property in any way whatsoever” and “he would return any such recordings or property to Prince immediately upon request.”

Because Boxill did not return the masters or recordings and has shared the tracks with third parties, he has violated his contract. In addition, one clause in the confidentiality agreement states that Boxill has “no right to give interviews or write books, articles, etc.” The estate and Paisley Park claim a release of the so-called “Prince Recordings,” would hurt its interests “permanently and irreparably.” It would hurt business relationships, but more importantly, “it deprives Prince (and now the Estate) from choosing what is released to the public and when.”
The suit asks for Boxill and any associates working on this to return the Prince recordings and refrain from using anything Boxill obtained with his sessions with Prince. In addition, the estate and Paisley Park would like “any and all masters, copies and reproductions” returned.

The estate lawyers issued the following statement:
“The Estate of Prince Rogers Nelson is aware that Mr. George Ian Boxill, in conjunction with Rogue Music Alliance, has issued a press release announcing intent to distribute previously unreleased Prince master recordings and musical compositions. The Estate has not authorized any such release and is not affiliated with either Mr. Boxill or Rogue Music Alliance. During his unparalleled career, Prince worked with many sound engineers, including Mr. Boxill. Like the other engineers that had the opportunity to work with Prince, Mr. Boxill signed an agreement, under which he agreed (1) all recordings that he worked on with Prince would remain Prince’s sole and exclusive property; (2) he would not use any recordings or property in any way whatsoever; and (3) he would return any such recordings or property to Prince immediately upon request. Mr. Boxill did not comply with his agreement. Instead, Mr. Boxill maintained copies of certain tracks, waited until after Prince’s tragic death, and is now attempting to release tracks without the authorization of the Estate and in violation of the agreement and applicable law. The Estate is taking immediate legal actions to prevent Mr. Boxill’s continuing violations of his agreement and the rights of the Estate and its partners in Prince’s recordings. Any dissemination of the recordings and underlying music compositions, or fixation of the same in any audiovisual work or otherwise, is unauthorized and in violation of the Estate’s rights to the master recordings and musical compositions.”


Kim Kardashian Calls Out Blac Chyna, Says She & Rob Are 'Just Not Meant to Be'
Kim Kardashian has apparently just about had it with her brother Rob‘s relationship with Blac Chyna.
The 36-year-old Keeping Up with the Kardashians star got real with Rob, 30, in a sneak preview for an upcoming episode of the reality show.
Late last year, Chyna reportedly left her then-fiance and took their daughter Dream with her. That’s when Kim approached Rob.

“I’ve always been super cool with [Chyna],” Kim tells him. “I have a different relationship with her than what you guys have with Kylie and I always hear her out and stuff, but just seeing the motives is, like, what’s hurtful.”
“I’ve always felt like them as a couple just isn’t that healthy, and I think they know that, too,” Kim adds. “It’s not, like, some secret. Rob can be really irrational and he just has to learn to really take responsibility for himself and not blame it on Chyna. This just all has to stop. It’s so clear what this relationship is and they’re just not meant to be with each other.”

GREAT NEWS! Serena Williams Is 20 Weeks Pregnant!


GREAT NEWS! Serena Williams Is 20 Weeks Pregnant!
So she won the freaking Australian Open while expecting.
That’s right: The tennis great announced on Snapchat Wednesday that she is 20 weeks pregnant with her first child.
Do you know what this means? It means that our nation’s two queens, Beyoncé and Serena Williams, are both pregnant at the exact same time.
Even more astonishingly, it means that Williams was pregnant when she won the Australian Open in January.

The news comes just a few months after Williams announced that she’s engaged to Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian ― appropriately enough in a post on her fiancé’s site:
I came home
A little late
Someone had a bag packed for me
And a carriage awaited

Destination: Rome
To escort me to my very own “charming”
Back to where our stars first collided
And now it was full circle
At the same table we first met by chance
This time he made it not by chance
But by choice
Down on one knee
He said 4 words

What wonderful news amid the chaos that is life. CONGRATS SERENA!

The Daily Buzz For April 20


Variety’s Power of Women 2017
Each year, Variety highlights five prominent women who are using their clout and influence to bring attention to worthy causes. This year’s honorees are: Jessica Chastain (Planned Parenthood), Chelsea Clinton (Alliance for a Healthier Generation), Gayle King (SEO Scholars), Blake Lively (Child Rescue Coalition), Audra McDonald (Covenant House), and Shari Redstone (Legal Services Corp.).

Jessica Chastain
“It’s very important in our society to protect women who financially don’t have the means to pay for healthcare, and Planned Parenthood does that,” says Jessica Chastain. But the nonprofit, which is 100 years old, has been under fire. The Trump administration and pro-life Republicans are threatening to cut funding for the organization that provides medical services for women, including abortions.

Chelsea Clinton
After Bill Clinton underwent emergency heart bypass surgery in 2004, he reached out to the American Heart Assn. to see what he could do for the organization. He envisioned it would want him to be the poster child for men visiting their doctors more regularly — but the group had another mission in mind: “The American Heart Assn. said, ‘Yes, please talk about that. But what we really need help on is childhood obesity,’” recalls Chelsea Clinton. 

Gayle King
Gayle King grew up in a household where it was never a question whether she was going to college. “I couldn’t wait,” she says, of attending the University of Maryland, where she double-majored in psychology and sociology. “Who’s going to be my roommate? What classes am I going to have? Filling out the application form.” But for many children raised in modest-income families, these conversations aren’t part of their upbringing. 

Blake Lively
Blake Lively wants to use the power of the web to crack down on child pornography. The movie star (“The Shallows,” “Café Society”) is working with the Child Rescue Coalition on promoting a groundbreaking technology that flags the IP addresses of people who share and download sexually explicit images of minors.

Audra McDonald
The most decorated star on Broadway regularly spends the night on the sidewalk. For the last few years, six-time Tony Award winner Audra McDonald has joined Sleep Out: Broadway Edition, which invites hundreds of members of the New York theater community to pass an entire night on the street, regardless of weather. The annual event is a fundraiser for Covenant House, the organization that helps homeless teens in 30 cities across six countries.

Shari Redstone
“The entire legal system was built upon the assumption that people would have adequate representation. When they don’t, the system fails and the laws don’t matter,” says Shari Redstone. That’s where Legal Services Corp. comes in. The group that Redstone supports provides funding to 134 legal-aid organizations, which, in turn, give counsel to close to 2 million people.

#RHoA: Porsha and her anger issues! Porsha's Anger Management Gets Tested Again
During the RHoA Reunion there’s footage of the women asking Porsha 20 questions about her anger management treatment, Kenya admitted she probably shouldn't have chased Porsha out into the parking lot. "You are an angry person," Porsha said. "You really are evil." She added that Kenya "not only followed" her across the street, but then got right up in her face. "When I'm trying to better myself, all y'all think is it's something bad," Porsha added.

At that point, Kandi jumped in and Porsha and Kandi started going after each other — with their words (not their fists, thankfully). Kandi started screaming about how she had donated $5,000 to help Porsha during her Celebrity Apprentice stint. Porsha argued that donation was for charity, but Kandi wasn't buying it. Kandi and Porsha were screaming over each other (which made it pretty impossible to hear either one of them), while Andy looked on in rather stunned silence.

Tell Me: Do you think there's any hope for Porsha and Kandi?


#EMPIRE: Lucious Mortality or his Mentality?
Lucious is sick. He’s got a virus that’s made him bedridden, overly paranoid and stressed out. Hakeem asks “does he have ALS again?” It’s a call back to something Cookie mentioned in a previous episode. “No, that’s not how ALS works,” Andre snaps back. There’s a lot being set up here, even in such a small moment.

Last night’s episode made me realize that Empire won’t end until, well, Lucious ends. It was hinted back in season 1, when Lucious’s ALS was the driving force of the plot. The characters also casually talk about death like it’s not a big deal: in the last two episodes alone, people have either threatened to kill Anika or she’s talked about her own fatality: “If I get caught, he’ll kill me.” We’ve seen Lucious off people, we’ve seen Rhonda get pushed off a balcony, we’ve seen Frida Gatz attempt to kill Lucious, we’ve seen Grandma Lea point a gold plated gun at Anika. On top of all this: Andre wants to kill Lucious. One of the themes behind Empire, besides music, love, power and competition, is how murder is a means to eliminate an obstacle, to cover up something, or to gain more power.

Although I don’t like the idea of this show possibly being determined by Lucious’ mortality, I’m prepared to watch him fall, and shamelessly expect it to be an intricate, dramatic, lengthy demise. Lucious’ illness at the beginning of the episode was a way to scare the characters, but also to remind them that he still has the most power, even when he’s vulnerable. When Anika stands over his sick bed, punctures his air bag and threatens to kill him if he doesn’t comply with her, he pulls out a gun that’s been hiding under the blankets. Lucious is probably too weak to shoot it, but the reveal of his armor is enough for Anika to walk away. Lucious still got it, even when he can’t breathe.

Desperate, and doubting that she will live much longer, Anika turns to Cookie. She asks her to take care of Bella as her own, in the event that she gets arrested or killed. Cookie agrees. There must be a reason why this scene is in place, but I hope it isn’t to hint the obvious. If so, that is extremely poor foreshadowing. Perhaps it’s Bella’s other parent, Hakeem, who gets arrested, which will give Cookie even more reason to take care of her step-granddaughter. (h/tRefinery29)


#MUSICNEWS: New Prince Recordings To Be Released This Friday With ‘DELIVERANCE’ EP
In honor of the one year anniversary of Prince‘s passing, RMA (Rogue Music Alliance) is releasing a special EP titled DELIVERANCE, featuring 6 previously unreleased studio recordings from 2006-2008. The title track, “Deliverance,” is available now on iTunes and Apple Music, and the full EP hits stores on Friday (Apr. 21).

DELIVERANCE features 6 new, undiscovered tracks: “Deliverance,” “Man Opera,” which includes a four-movement medley: “I Am,” “Touch Me,” “Sunrise Sunset,” “No One Else;” and an extended version of “I Am.” The songs were written and recorded when Prince was an independent artist, protesting what he saw as an unjust music industry. In the spirit of that independence, and in supporting Prince’s opinion of major label contracts, DELIVERANCE is being released independently via RMA, a Vancouver, WA based record company. The majority of all sales of DELIVERANCE will benefit Prince’s estate.
Prince, and Ian Boxill (2Pac, Gladys Knight, Janet Jackson), co-wrote and co-produced all of the tracks beginning in 2006. After Prince’s untimely passing, Boxill continued their work by spending the past year completing the compositions and arrangements, finishing the production and mixing the songs.

Speaking about the project, Boxill said: “I believe ‘Deliverance’ is a timely release with everything going on in the world today, and in light of the one-year anniversary of his passing. I hope when people hear Prince singing these songs it will bring comfort to many.” He continues, “Prince once told me that he would go to bed every night thinking of ways to bypass major labels and get his music directly to the public. When considering how to release this important work, we decided to go independent because that’s what Prince would have wanted.”

The pre-order for the EP is available now on iTunes, Google Play and Amazon.
The EP disc version of DELIVERANCE will be released nationwide on June 2 at Walmart, Target and other major brick and mortar stores.

Tom Brady Skipping Patriots White House Super Bowl Visit Due to 'Personal Family Matters'
The New England Patriots are set to visit President Donald Trump at the White House today to celebrate their Super Bowl win, but quarterback and Super Bowl 51 MVP Tom Brady just announced that he won’t be in attendance.
The 39-year-old NFL quarterback has a relationship with the President, but never officially confirmed he backed him for the job.

Unfortunately, Tom‘s mother Galynn has been ill with what many believe is cancer. Galynn was able to watch Tom win the Super Bowl live in the stadium. We’re wishing Tom and his family well.
“I am so happy and excited that our team is being honored at the White House today. Our team has accomplished something very special that we are all proud of and will be for years to come. Thank you to the President for hosting this honorary celebration and for supporting our team for as long as I can remember. In light of some recent developments, I am unable to attend today’s ceremony, as I am attending to some personal family matters. Hopefully, if we accomplish the goal of winning a championship in the future years, we will back on the South Lawn again soon. Have a great day!,” via NFL’s Ian Rapoport.


‘Love & Hip Hop Atlanta’ Star Rasheeda Slays Delux Magazine (Double Covers)
Inside the issue, the “Love & Hip Hop Atlanta” star talks about life as a reality TV star, motherhood, entrepreneurship, and more.

One thing Rasheeda made very clear is she doesn’t regret doing reality TV:
Ummmmm, life for me has changed a lot since season 1, drastically. I mean of course the popularity level is at an all-time high, so you can’t move around like you used to back in the day. It doesn’t matter where you go, you know it’s been a lot of growth business wise and being able to expand yourself and do great things which is a positive. At the end of the day I think that when you go into something and you have a plan on what you are trying to accomplish and what you are trying to do, it makes it even better to be able to see that growth.
But for the most part it’s a lot and can be really challenging. I don’t have any regrets. I am the type of person who feels like with being on a show as successful as Love and Hip Hop not knowing what I was really getting myself into, I don’t have feelings where I am saying, ‘I wish I would have never did this show.’ I mean it might be a couple of relationships as far as females that I am not going to specifically say that I wish I would’ve never even entertained, but for the most part I look at it like it’s a give and a take.

Vanessa Williams And Tichina Arnold Star In Reality Show Parody ‘Daytime Divas’
Well damn, this is just what we need. Another reality show with women fighting. We thought that era was kind over. Obviously not.
Actually, it’s not a real reality show, per se. It’s a scripted drama about a reality show. It’s called Daytime Divas and we’ve got the first teaser trailer (above) and as you can see, all hell just broke loose … again.

The new VH1 show stars Vanessa Williams and Tichina Arnold, among others.
The drama is based on former The View co-host Star Jones’ book Satan’s Sisters and follows the behind-the-scenes drama on the set of The Lunch Hour, a popular daytime TV show.

The cast and showrunners of the show have been announced. In March, Vanessa Williams was announced as the lead in the series, where she will star as Maxine, the creator and host of a fictional talk show The Lunch Hour. Williams’ co-hosts on the show within a show will be Tichina Arnold as Mo, Chloe Bridges as Kibby, Camille Guaty as Nina, and Fiona Gubelmann as Heather.
Rounding out the cast is VH1 favorite and Hit the Floor star McKinley Freeman, who stars as Maxine’s son and a producer of The Lunch Hour.

Daytime Divas is inspired by Star Jones’ 2011 book “Satan’s Sisters: A Novel of Fiction” and is set behind the scenes of a long-running daytime television show, chronicling the fireworks that erupt daily between the five female co-hosts. On screen, they are best friends with five very different points of view, but behind the scenes, they inhabit a world of power struggles, cat fights and cocktails.

Chris Alberghini and Mike Chessler (Awkward, 90210) are showrunners as well as executive producers. The series is set to premiere later this year.


Jennifer Garner & Ben Affleck 'Will Continue to Work Amicably' After Their Divorce
Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck filed for divorce this month, nearly two years after announcing their separation.
According to a People source, they “will continue to amicably work at their relationship to make this new phase work for the kids,” Violet, 11, Seraphina, 8, and Samuel, 5.
The plan to file for divorce was apparently mutual: “It was just time. There was no catalyst.”
“Jen waited for the right time,” a source close to Jennifer added. “She wasn’t going to file for divorce while Ben was struggling. She is very proud of him for getting help.”

Ben will reportedly continue to live in the family’s guest house.
“When and if he moves out, it will be when he finds a place suitable for their situation…They want to keep the kids close,” the source added.

Man Sues Gay Dating App After 1,100 Men Show Up at His House “Aggressively Demanding Sex”
Last Wednesday, New York native, #MatthewHerrick, filed a lawsuit against the creators of the popular dating app for gay and bisexual men, #Grindr, accusing them of product liability, fraud, and deceptive business practices.

In the complaint, Herrick explains that he’s been approached by several people over the last five months, harassing him for sexual encounters. He says about 1,100 individuals, nearly 16 people a day, have shown up at his home and place of employment “aggressively demanding sex,” due to the false information that has been created on the app. According to Herrick, his ex-boyfriend created fake profiles in his name with this false information. He says the fake profiles use his name and likeness to lure in potential suitors. Some profiles reportedly claim he has STD’s, including HIV. In addition, the profiles claim Herrick is into “agreed upon rape fantasy or role play,” which encourages people to force themselves on him.
“My entire life has been stolen from me. My privacy has been taken from me. I’m humiliated daily,” Herrick revealed in an interview with Wired Magazine. “It’s a living hell.”
Although Herrick’s issue is with his ex-boyfriend, he believes Grindr is also at fault for their “dangerous product.” He says that he’s complained to Grindr 50 times since October, to no avail.

“If the manufacturer and seller both know the battery could explode, there’s a duty to inform users of the risk,” Herrick’s attorney tells CNN. “Not to mention a duty to evaluate whether the product is so dangerous it should be removed from the market altogether.”
 “Grindr does not use even standard, widely available software programs…routinely used by interactive service providers to control their sites and products and to facilitate the safety and security of their users and the public,” Herrick’s complaint read, adding that even after over 100 reports filed about the fake profiles, the only response Herrick received read, “Thank you for your support.”

On the other hand, the company maintained that their app “cooperates with the law” and uses a “system of digital and human screening tools.”

“While we are constantly improving upon this process, it is important to remember that Grindr is an open platform,” the company reiterated.

Fox News has Cut Ties With Bill O’Reilly!
Bill O’Reilly will no longer be employed at Fox News, the network’s parent company 21st Century Fox said in a statement Wednesday. The decision comes after allegations of him sexually harassing female colleagues prompted protests outside network headquarters and a mass exodus from advertisers.
“After a thorough and careful review of the allegations, the Company and Bill O’Reilly have agreed that Bill O’Reilly will not be returning to the Fox New Channel,” the statement read.

O’Reilly confirmed the news later that afternoon in a press release, saying his ousting was provoked by “completely unfounded claims.”

Over the past 20 years at Fox News, I have been extremely proud to launch and lead one of the most successful news programs in history, which has consistently informed and entertained millions of Americans and significantly contributed to building Fox into the dominant news network in television. It is tremendously disheartening that we part ways due to completely unfounded claims. But that is the unfortunate reality many of us in the public eye must live with today. I will always look back on my time at Fox with great pride in the unprecedented success we achieved and with my deepest gratitude to all my dedicated viewers. I wish only the best Fox News Channel.
O’Reilly had said mid-April that he was taking a vacation. The official departure from Fox is an unceremonious end for the host, who had anchored the top-rated cable news show “The O’Reilly Factor” since its inception more than 20 years ago. His stunning exit mirrors that of former Fox News chairman Roger Ailes, who launched Fox News in 1996 and abruptly left the network last summer amid widespread sexual harassment allegations.
Fox News host Tucker Carlson will take over O’Reilly’s 8 p.m. time slot next Monday, Fox confirmed. “The O’Reilly Factor” will continue this week with guest hosts Dana Perino on Wednesday and Thursday, and Greg Gutfeld on Friday.

Following a bombshell New York Times report earlier this month indicating O’Reilly and Fox News have paid around $13 million in settlements to address complaints brought by five of his former female colleagues, advertisers began fleeing the show. Within days, more than 50 companies announced they would no longer air spots during the show.
New York magazine reported that Rupert Murdoch, executive chairman of 21st Century Fox, had advocated for keeping O’Reilly on board, while sons James and Lachlan had pushed for his departure.
Though 21st Century Fox had pledged to clean up Fox News following the Ailes scandal, the Times revealed that the company continued to privately settle lawsuits with O’Reilly accusers and even renewed the host’s contract, reportedly at more than $20 million a year.
The entertainment and media giant presumably stuck with O’Reilly because he has been a cash cow for Fox News. He’s the linchpin of the network’s primetime lineup and his top-rated show is major draw when it comes to negotiating fees to carry the channel with cable and satellite providers. And “The O’Reilly Factor” brought in around $111 million in advertising dollars over a three-year period.

Demonstrators rally against Fox News television personality Bill O’Reilly outside of the News Corp. and Fox News headquarters in Manhattan on April 18.
But advertisers quickly began to feel the pressure from consumers following the Times report and allegations from a sixth woman, Wendy Walsh, who held a press conference two days after the story was published online.
Mercedes-Benz was the first to announce its departure from the show’s ad schedule. “The allegations are disturbing and, given the importance of women in every aspect of our business, we don’t feel this is a good environment in which to advertise our products right now,” spokeswoman Donna Boland said.

“Fox News was forced to act,” Angelo Carusone, president of progressive watchdog Media Matters and lead organizer behind the @StopOReilly Twitter campaign, said Wednesday. “Without advertisers, Bill O’Reilly’s show was no longer commercially viable. Fox News had no choice but to fire O’Reilly. Accountability came from the outside, not from within. Fox News deserves no accolades, only scorn for the industrial-scale harassment they have forced their employees to endure.”
In initial responses to the Times’ report that O’Reilly inappropriately propositioned women and retaliated against them when they turned him down, both he and the network issued statements saying no accusers ever called Fox’s internal hotline, an 800 number employees can use to anonymously report concerns.
Following the Times’ report, 21st Century Fox announced Sunday that law firm Paul, Weiss, Rifkind, Wharton & Garrison would conduct an investigation into the claims of Walsh, a former guest on O’Reilly’s show who accused him of reneging on a promise to get her a contributor deal after she rebuffed his advances.

On Tuesday, civil rights attorney Lisa Bloom said that an African-American former clerical worker at Fox News, who remains anonymous, had claimed O’Reilly leered at her and called her “hot chocolate.”
Public Advocate Letitia James held a press conference on April 12 in front of Fox News headquarters to demand the network investigate O’Reilly.
Bloom, who also represents Walsh, submitted a request for a second, independent probe to the New York State Division of Human Rights.

That request comes as the U.S. attorney’s office in New York is already investigating 21st Century Fox over whether the company properly notified investors about payments made to Ailes’ accusers.
The recent allegations against O’Reilly aren’t the first time he was dogged by claims of sexual harassment. In 2004, O’Reilly settled a lawsuit filed by former Fox News producer Andrea Mackris, which contended that he spoke to her about sexual fantasies and masturbation. 
And Fox News has faced an advertiser boycott before. In a campaign led by the racial justice organization Color of Change in 2009, advertisers began leaving former host Glenn Beck’s show after he called then-President Barack Obama a “racist” with a “deep-seated hatred for white people or the white culture.”
But O’Reilly and Fox News weren’t able to weather this latest scandal, which occurred in a different media environment.
“We weren’t in the same type of social media climate that we are in now,” Rashad Robinson, the executive director of Color of Change, told The Huffington Post earlier this month. “The speed and pace of people’s interest is different because of the participation age ... Companies are hearing from their consumers directly through Twitter.” 

But Robinson is skeptical of O’Reilly’s ousting indicating any culture change at Fox News.
“While today is an important victory, it hardly absolves Fox News of its decades of racism and sexism,” he said in a statement Wednesday. “Fox News didn’t clean up its act after Roger Ailes was fired, and it won’t just because O’Reilly was fired. We’ll continue to demand accountability from the Murdochs.
