Rita Ora Is Totally Topless For LUI Magazine
She’s always been a fan of flashing flesh, but Rita Ora is taking her game to a new level with her topless Lui magazine cover this month.
The “Fifty Shades of Grey” actress smiles from ear-to-ear in her black leather skirt and open denim shirt as controversial lensman Terry Richardson captures her feminine form for the front page.

Last year, Rita told the Hollywood Reporter, "My new single is called 'Body on Me,' and it's about your body and feeling comfortable in who you are, so I thought, 'I would wear the same thing at home with my friends, why not do it at my own concert?' Miley is the main supporter of that message of being comfortable in your own skin. Madonna started it. Artists who are willing to do it only come along once in a blue moon."

#RHOA: Is Porsha Williams Siding With Kenya Moore Against Kim Fields?
Porsha is in her prime right now; while she doesn’t have a husband and kids just yet she has a great career at Dish Nation, plus a RHOA peach back in her hand. Porsha is proud of where she’s at with her work. In a interview with Bravo she was asked about the Kenya/Kim fued.

Bravotv.com: Did you think Kim was being shady with her beatless brunch?
PW: Kim says she doesn’t know how to read, but sometimes that’s when you give the best shade! Phaedra and I had been telling Kim we were going to make her over and make her “Mommy chic,” so I think the dinner was a way to say she is fab in a basic way and that we need to flip the table and be more natural like her. We were coming from a place of helping Kim get back to her sexy, fab self and she wanted to remind us to love ourselves whether we are made up or not. To me, friendships like this are the best. It’s great to add to each other’s life. At the end of the day, it’s all about helping your sister to love herself inside and out!

It was sweet of her to end the blog in support of Kim and her event since it seemed like a flop with the ladies, but we all know if it was anyone else going up against Kim, Porsha would have stepped up and voiced her opinion. How great would a Porsha/Kenya tag-team be, now that would be entertaining. Porsha has evolved so much during her time on The Real Housewives of Atlanta and I’m excited to see what’s to come for her in the future!

Thoughts on this. What do you think about her agreeing with Kenya in the argument over the “beatless brunch?” Do you think if it was another housewife going against Kim Porsha would have taken a side?

New Music Video: Video: Silk – Love 4 U 2 Like Me
Veteran R&B group Silk have delivered the visual for their comeback single “Love 4 U 2 Like Me.”
It’s been 10 years since their last LP, 2006’s Always & Forever, and the smooth record finds the group in great form.
“I think ‘Love 4 U 2 Like Me’ was the right reintroduction for Silk,” said Gary “Big G” Glenn. “It’s a classic song and true to what we value now–thinking of ways to impress your woman, asking for little and giving a lot in return. We’re not abandoning our formula as far as love-making music goes…we are just acknowledging that foreplay is necessary and not so spoken about these days.”

“Love 4 U 2 Like Me” is the lead single off their forthcoming album Quiet Storm, due out March 18.

Lil Kim Slams Photoshopped Booty: THE HATE IS SO REAL!
Photoshop can be a tricky thing, even for professionals who can usually spot the trickery. Just ask Lil Kim who is the latest victim of what we hear is some nasty photoshopping. This week, an image began circulating, showing Lil Kim with an uberly enhanced booty. Lil Kim caught wind of the image in question and posted the following on Instagram.
And on Twitter she added:

#SAGAWARDS! Take that Oscar! Diversity Reigns at SAG Awards After Oscar Controversy; Stars Say ‘The Problem Starts Before the Academy’
The entertainment industry may be reeling from the lack of diversity in the 2016 Oscar nominations, but the winners at the 2016 Screen Actors Guild Awards stood in stark contrast to the #OscarsSoWhite controversy.

Idris Elba scooped two awards, Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Supporting Role for Netflix’s “Beasts of No Nation,” and Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Television Movie or Miniseries for BBC America’s “Luther.”

“How to Get Away with Murder” star Viola Davis won the award for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Drama Series, while Queen Latifah took the prize for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Television Movie or Miniseries for her titular role in HBO’s “Bessie.” For the second year running, Netflix’s “Orange is the New Black” nabbed the ensemble award for a comedy series, with star Uzo Aduba once again taking home the gong for Female Actor in a Comedy Series.
Backstage after her win, Davis addressed the ongoing conversation regarding diversity in the industry. “We’ve become a society of trending topics. Diversity is not a trending topic … I see myself as an actor, no matter what is going on in the business, I will find a way to practice my art,” she said of finding roles. “All the actors of color I know don’t place any limitations on themselves either… regardless of what’s going on in the industry, no matter what’s going on in the Academy, they will find a way to be excellent. We always have and we always will.”
Davis said that people had to make their own decisions about whether to boycott the Oscars, but urged viewers, “when you walk into a theater, to be open to the experience of the story. I feel like sometimes people feel like the stories of people of color aren’t inclusive – they’re very much inclusive … When you watch Annalise, she’s not just a black woman, she’s a woman going through her life. People forget that in our business, we can’t act in a room; you need the actor; you need the director; you need the writer; and you need the audience… So plop down your money to see ‘Race,’ to see ‘Dope,’ to see ‘Straight Outta Compton,’ … to support directors like Ava DuVernay, Lee Daniels, Spike Lee — their stories are just as important and valid as anyone else’s.”

“OITNB” star Laura Prepon noted on stage, “This is what we talk about when we talk about diversity,” referring to the inclusivity of the Netflix show’s cast.
Backstage, castmate Samira Wiley praised “OITNB” creator Jenji Kohan for changing the face of television. “She’s put women on your TV, in your homes, that look like a rainbow. We have different stories, different ages, different body types, different beliefs… It’s a reflection of what the world is like.”
Addressing the lack of representation in the Oscar nominations, “OITNB” cast member Selenis Leyva noted, “The problem starts before the Academy Awards … Producers, directors, casting people need to open their eyes — diversity isn’t just black and white, it’s universal and it’s a lot more than we’re focusing on; it’s religion, it’s sexuality.” She urged content creators at networks and studios to trust that viewers are hungry for stories that reflect diverse experiences. “You will make money, people will tune in.”
Latifah noted that in order for the film industry to catch up to TV in terms of diversity, she thinks “the public has to continue to demand that. We’re in a capitalist society, so hopefully supply and demand will kick back in. Hopefully our business will continue to supply the demand the people are asking for … I hope we wake up and realize the old way of doing things is the old way and it’s okay to evolve … change is inevitable.”  CONGRATS TO ALL THE WINNERS!     h/t variety

Oh? Stevie J Breaks-Up With Joseline Hernandez: We are NOT married!
Are one of your favorite reality TV couples officially OVAH? According to Instagram, absolutely. Love & Hip Hop Atlanta alum Stevie J says that he and Joseline Hernandez have split. In fact, he says they aren’t married, which means they never were or they’re separated. In either case, the producer spilled the tea within a comment on Instagram.
Joseline was at Rick Ross’ birthday party. Apparently, someone commented that the way they posed together was a little inappropriate. Anywho, peep Stevie’s response.

Again, Oh?

YESSSS RIHANNAMANIA! Rihanna’s ANTI Goes Platinum In 15 Hours With Help From Samsung
Rihanna’s new album is already certified platinum thanks in part to the work of Samsung. The tech giant purchased 1 million copes of ANTI to offer to fans for free download.
ANTI, her eighth studio LP, dropped on Tidal Thursday (Jan. 28). According to the company’s marketing director, Rihanna moved 1.4 million copies in 15 hours.”That’s a really big deal for us,” Grace Kim told Spin.com.
Samsung pulled the same move with Jay Z’s Magna Carter Holy Grail release in 2013.  Just as they did with Hov, fans jumped at the chance to get a free Rihanna album, giving the bajan singer her fastest platinum album certification in the history of her career.

Let’s not discount Rih Rih’s own power though, her sales figures include 400,000 copies bought from traditional downloads. Also, ANTI has been streamed more than 13 million times, proving that her superstar stats are intact (with or without Samsung’s help).
That said, Billboard and Nielson won’t count the Samsung sales.

Rick Ross Celebrates 40th Birthday With Star-Studded Bash At His Atlanta Mansion
Rick Ross celebrated his 40th birthday with a star-studded bash at his Atlanta mansion. The man of the hour hit the scene dapper in a white jacket teamed with black tuxedo pants – with a list of celebs like Monica Brown and her husband Shannon, Keri Hilson, Ludacris, Yo Gotti, Kat Williams and more in attendance.
Jermaine Dupri was in charge of the sounds for the night, and was snapped in his element at the DJ booth. Ricky’s mom, Tommie Roberts, was also on there, as well as his ex Shateria.
While talking to GQ ahead of the party, the MMG Bawse said:

Every hour they’ll be something new unveiled for the crowd, just to keep everyone excited. Gonna be a lot of Belaire Rose; of course, the beautiful women; a lot of my powerful friends; maybe even a few politicians; of course athletes. It’s going to be one of those great scandals. [laughs]

ARETHA VS PATTI In the Kitchen? ReRe is starting her own Food line!

ARETHA VS PATTI In the Kitchen? Aretha is starting her own Food line!
Well Miss Patti LaBelle! The Queen of Soul is coming for you and your Patti Pies.
The Queen of Soul Aretha Franklin is gearing up to launch her own food line. And she’s set to take down all of the competition. During an interview with Detriot’s Local News 4, Aretha revealed she will be coming out with her own pies, PLUS some of her other famous dishes such as her chili, gumbo and baked chicken and dressing. Yum!

When asked if she has tried any of Patti LaBelle’s sweet potato pies, she responded, “No, I haven’t. But, Miss Patti is going to have to move that pie to the side!” 


The Grammy Award winning singer said she has already met up with a food group in Phoenix to start developing her line of food. No word yet on a release date.
We wonder if Aretha will find the same success as Patti did after her superfan James Chanel Wright gave her the review of a lifetime. They should host a cook-off to see who would reign supreme. We'd be here for it. But I feel Aretha is being a bit vicious how she’s going about it. But Patti sales are already in so Ms LaBelle keep it moving and BE UNBOTHERED!

The Daily Buzz For Jan 29

Cam Newton Is on the cover of The SUPER Bowl Edition of ESPN Magazine.
Cam Newton is gracing the cover of ESPN The Magazine’s newest issue where he transforms into his favorite superhero Superman!  And the QB's father is holding nothing back when it comes to critics.   NFL analyst Ryan Clark and ore break down why the Super Bowl bound QB receives so much hate inside….
Super Bowl 50 is about to be LIT!  Cam Newton and the Carolina Panthers are gearing up for an epic game against Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos next Sunday (Feb. 7th). And it appears all eyes are the quarterback who led his team to a an impressive 17-1 season ending record.

For ESPN the Magazine’s upcoming issue, they tapped the ridiculously sexy QB to take over the cover.
Cam is transformed into Superman, one of his favorite superheroes that he often mimics during games. How appropriate. Inside, ESPN explores many facets of the 6-foot-5, 245-pound FINE quarterback.

One interesting excerpt comes from Cam’s father, Cecil Newton.  He addressed the haters who constantly drag his son about having a baby boy (whom he named Chosen) with longtime girlfriend Kia Proctor out of wedlock.
A “fan” wrote to The Charlotte Observer to express her disappointment in Cam, suggesting he should put a ring on his girlfriend’s finger. She wrote, "Congratulations would be in order if he had been man enough to marry the mother of his child and make a home."

Well his father, who is a church bishop, has a response to that. He clapped back:

"I want it to be known that his mother and I are staunch Christian proponents of marriage and all things pertaining to legitimacy," Cecil says. "I have three sons and one woman, and I have been a living example all his life of what a man should be in a family. Cam is 26 years old, not 18 or 19. He has a heightened consciousness of who he is as a man, and I always tell him the decisions you make you have to live with short and long term. I don't style it as a mistake; I style it as something that can be a gift for him and the young lady. We're going to support them in every aspect -- physically, emotionally and spiritually."

Perfectly said. ESPN even gave an interesting comparison to Cam having a baby out of wedlock and New England Patriots QB Tom Brady -- the NFL's Golden Boy -- doing the exact same thing. The article said:
Tom Brady can have a child out of wedlock -- and leave the actress/mother for a supermodel before the baby was born -- and not be blamed for the systemic deterioration of the American family and the scourge of fatherless households. For Newton, it was yet another lens through which to view him, as if maturity, greed and race weren't enough. The son of a church bishop, the middle son of a tight-knit family, Newton had given them something they expected.

Cam’s dad also opened up about how he was able to keep Cam from cutting up in class. His dad said he loved attention, so he made him dress up every Friday to get the attention he longed for, but in a productive way. Here's an excerpt:

His son had a tendency to speak a bit too much in class. The boy liked attention, which caused a problem for his teachers and -- by extension -- his parents. So one day, Cecil Newton had an idea. He told his son, "Cam, since you want people to notice you, you can dress up on Fridays. That way, everybody will notice you."
Starting that next Friday, Cam Newton left the house for middle school wearing a long-sleeve button-down, slacks and dress shoes. He did it without complaint, almost cheerfully, and before long the practice wasn't restricted to Fridays.
"He's enjoying this," Cecil told his wife, Jackie.
Fast forward to a few decades later, and Cam now has his own suit line at BELK department stores.  See how that works?

Check out the full write up to get a better understanding of the superstar QB on ESPN.

RHOA’s Porsha Williams Says Nude Photos Are ‘Just Not Her Thing’
No one can argue how the Real Housewives of Atlanta’s Porsha Williams morphed into an exhibitionist of sorts, in an effort to kick to the curb, the straight-laced society image she maintained while married to her ex Kordell Stewart.  The now bolder and bootylicious Porsha chatted with Bravo.com about sexting and surprisingly, the talk show co-host is a lot more prudish than her fans would think.

RHOA viewers have been entertained by a more ‘turnt up,’ devil-may-care Porsha over the last couple of years.  She dresses to tease and has an attitude to match, coquettish to a fault, flaunting her curves in boob-baring or booty-enhancing numbers.  Porsha’s narcissism about herself has certainly been played up on the show, so admitting to Bravo ‘nude photos are just not her thing‘ is a shockingly unexpected response.
The RHOA castmates have even poked fun at how Porsha struts her wares without modesty, so how is it that the young Atlanta socialite would not be into a little sexting?  “Half of the time I think my butt’s too big and my angles are off, so I don’t take them. It’s so much work to take the right selfie of your body that I give up, LOL! When I do take one, it’s of Coco and Chanel! I love how my breasts look in my Naked Lingerie line, so I will take pics of myself, but I never send them to anyone,” she admits.

Driverless cars are all the rage at this year’s Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, which features plenty of smart, driverless, electric and energy-efficient vehicles. More than a hundred car tech companies and nine major manufacturers are showing off the rapidly evolving technology.
Porsha, who owns a hair extension line, also has a lingerie company, Naked Lingerie, that features very risqué items.  She has modeled a few of her very own you-might-as-well-be-naked lingerie pieces and has posed for countless, brow-raising shots modeling swimwear that resembled dental floss!

Go figure?

New Music: Miguel Feat. Travis Scott – Waves (Remix)
Miguel is still riding “Waves.” The Grammy Award-winning singer has recruited Houston rapper Travis Scott to remix the latest single off his Wildheart album. The Cash-Dillon produced track features Miguel’s gritty vocals complemented by bars from Scott.

Mr. Wildheart’s infectious hook, “Don’t stop, I wanna ride that wave / All night I wanna ride that wave,” compliments the new slowed down flipped beat with ease. Keeping up with Miguel, Travis plays with the idea of surfing and raps about all the things he and his girl can do if they just ride the waves.

Miguel, who is nominated for Best Urban Contemporary Album and Best R&B Song at next month’s Grammysis on tour with his his “Wildheart Motel” tour.

Here are your contestants for The Celebrity Apprentice: Terminator Edition
When it was revealed last year that an immigrant had stolen Donald Trump’s job, speculation flew over what kind of changes Arnold Schwarzenegger might make to The Celebrity Apprentice. Would he force all the contestants to start working out more? Insist on weekly screenings of Jingle All The Way? Or perhaps he’ll simply put them all in a room and force them to download the game he’s hawking, like a smart capitalist would. Whatever the tactics, we now know the names of everyone he’ll be overseeing in the latest edition of the series: Variety reports the eighth season will feature Jon Lovitz, Carnie Wilson, Boy George, Vince Neil, and a bunch of other folks whose combined levels of name recognition suggests the word “celebrity” in the title should probably have an apostrophe and an “s” attached to it.

Arguably more interesting than the list of contestants are the people who have signed on as advisors to Schwarzenegger for the new season. Jessica Alba, Tyra Banks, Steve Ballmer, and Warren Buffet will be appearing on this season, meaning the program will now feature two drop-dead sexy minxes, and also businesspeople Jessica Alba and Tyra Banks. This year’s winner receives a $250,000 check for the charity of their choice; the show has cumulatively raised more than $15 million for various charities over the previous seasons. The full list of contestants is below, and if you can actually identify every person on this list, you may want to spend a little time away from Us Weekly. Not judging, just worried about you.

2016 The Celebrity Apprentice contestants:
Laila Ali
Brooke Burke-Charvet
Eric Dickerson
Boy George
Matt Iseman
Carrie Keagan
Carson Kressley
Lisa Leslie
Jon Lovitz
Vince Neil
Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi
Kyle Richards
Chael Sonnen

4-Year-Old Tells Steph Curry He Wants To Date His Daughter Riley
Steph Curry’s toughest competition this year might not be on the basketball court, but at home where he’s already fending off suitors of his daughter Riley’s heart.
A 4-year-old boy named Lucas has the league’s MVP on notice after he showed up at last night’s Golden State Warriors game holding a sign reading: “Riley, will you be my Valentine?”ESPN’s J.A. Adande posted this photograph of Lucas on Twitter:
After the game, Curry met his future son-in-law, telling him he wasn’t sure if Riley was up for a Valentine’s Day date or not since she’s only 3. “I don’t know if the answer is yes or no, but it’s good to meet you,” the all-star guard joked while laughing. It’s a cool moment

York Banks Asla, welcome to the world.”

Congrats to the couple!

#OSCARSSOWHITE Straight Outta Compton Cast Didn’t Get Invited To The Oscars
The Oscars had no intention of welcoming the cast  Straight Outta Compton,  even though the show is looking for more Black presenters this year. Beyond the two White screenwriters nominated, neither the cast nor SOC producer, Ice Cube, were invited to attend the 2016 Oscars.
TMZ reported the cast shutout. It’s unclear how the invitation works but typically current and previous Oscar nominee and winners, announcers, and a multitude of other actors are invited.
If Cube had been invited he wouldn’t go anyway, according to TMZ. He will be attending the Screen Actors Guild Awards and the NAACP Image Awards, both of which nominated SOC.
The N.W.A biopic release last year, topped the box officer for three weeks in a row and has earned more than $200 million worldwide.

Following the SOC Oscars snub, and general outrage over Hollywood’s diversity deficit, the Academy of Motion Pictures announced a plan to diversify its members and change up the voting process.  Over 9o percent of Academy voters are White, and more than 75 percent are men with an average age of 63 years old.

Thieves Jacking Brooklyn Teens For Their Jordans in East Flatbush Bklyn!
Just when it became easier to track down a coveted pair of Jordans —thanks to an influx of product on the market—it seems like it’s going to be getting that much harder to keep them on your feet. In the past two months, three 14-year-old boys in Brooklyn have been attacked by a group of adolescents and liberated of their belongings; including their Air Jordans, cell phones, MetroCards, and ID’s.
The latest robbery occurred on January 14 on Troy Ave near Rutland Road.

Reports DNA Info New York:
Police said the most recent robbery happened as a 14-year-old boy was walking home from school on Troy Avenue near Rutland Road around 3:30 p.m. on Jan. 14.
As he passed the northeast corner of the intersection, multiple teenagers, approximately 16 and 17 years old, approached him and began punching him.

The suspects then forcibly removed his Metrocard, identification and Jordan sneakers and fled on foot.
The theft is similar to two others the occurred last month within blocks of the Jan. 14 incident, all to 14-year-old boys wearing the brand name sneakers while walking home from school in East Flatbush.
Each of the robberies have occurred in and around the Rutland Road area in East Flatbush Brooklyn, NY. Police have no suspects but believe the same group is responsible for all the Jordan jackings.
Be safe out there my fellow sneakerheads.


They must call that an atomic wedgie because it resembles and atomic bomb’s mushroom cloud and leaves a similar path of destruction.
