REAL or FAKE NEWS? Is this the Official “Baby Boy 2” Movie Poster?
Tyrese continues to tease the upcoming movie, Bad Boy 2: Coming Of Age. On Tuesday (May 30th), the singer turned actor shared what appeared to be a movie poster. The poster (which could have been created by a fan) included images of Taraji P. Henson, Tyrese, Snoop Dogg and Ving Rhames – all of the characters who starred in the original film. Snoop, was killed off on the first version, so no word on how or if he’ll return for the sequel.
Over the weekend, Tyrese also posted a photo of Taraji, poolside with Adrienne-Joi Johnson, the actress who played the mother to one of his children. The photo was taken at John Singleton’s home, who also directed the original film.
No additional details about the project have yet been released.

#NEWHIPHOPVIDEO Video: Snoop Dogg feat. Redman, Method Man, & B-Real – ‘Mount Kushmore’
Hot off the release of his latest album Neva Left, Tha Doggfather unleashes his animated video featuring Redman, Method Man, and B-Real.
Unafraid of the controversy that followed his “Lavender (Nightfall Remix),” this clip features President Donald Trump once again, only this time, in animation. The current POTUS finds himself puzzled, trying to figure out what happened to the landmark at a scene where chicken bones, used condoms, and hoop earrings are found.
The cartoon visual shows exactly what happened, thanks to Red, Meth, B-Real, and Snoop. As the clip progresses, fans see that they were able to reshape Mount Rushmore to reflect their faces with a little help from TNT and some twerk-ready models.
“Mount Kushmore” is the latest single off Snoop’s 15th solo studio album, Neva Left, which dropped earlier this month. The project also features Wiz Khalifa, KRS-One, Devin the Dude, and Too $hort.
Up next, Snoop is set to perform his debut album Doggystyle at this year’s HARD Summer Music Festival in August. Plus, he will join Linkin Park on the band’s “One More Light World Tour” in October.
Beyoncé Bonded With Blue Ivy Carter over the Memorial Day Holiday!
You'd be hard-pressed to find a mother-daughter duo more stylish than this one.
On Memorial Day, Beyoncé and Blue Ivy got into the summer spirit in coordinating blue and pink swimwear and accessories. In an adorable candid shot shared on the Grammy winner's Instagram account, the future mother of three donned a vibrant blue bikini with her baby bump peeking out. Meanwhile, it was a helpful seat for her 5-year-old first-born, who was wrapped in her mother's arms atop her belly.
In perhaps a nod to her own name, little Blue also sported a blue print straw hat and a gold temporary flash tattoo on her arm while the "Formation" songstress accessorized with colorful statement earrings. The star sealed her look with a red lip and cascading hair.

Cowboys’ Nolan Carroll Arrested on DWI Charges After his Own Welcoming Party
Dallas Cowboys cornerback Nolan Carroll, who has become the team’s biggest free agency addition in the secondary, was arrested on a DWI charge on Memorial Day in Dallas. According to reports, he had just left his own “Welcome to Dallas” party, celebrating his signing with the Cowboys.
After the festivities, Dallas police stopped noticed Carroll driving on the wrong side of the road. He was pulled over and arrested for DWI. Carroll was released shortly after posting a $500 bond. He still faces consequences from the NFL, as his arrest violates NFL’s personal conduct policy.
The Cowboys signed the 30-year-old baller to a three-year, $10 million deal in free agency, which included a $1 million base salary and $3 million signing bonus, both of which are guaranteed. He was expected to compete for the starting position, joining the top two corners for the Dallas team, Orlando Scandrick and Anthony Brown. However, with Carroll’s arrest, he faces a possible two-game suspension.
On Tuesday, the Cowboys released a statement, revealing that the team is “aware of the situation and gathering information at this time.” Carroll released a statement, as well, via Snapchat.
“Everybody gets knocked down in life. Everybody bobs when they shoulda weaved, no exceptions. But remember that YOU are responsible for how you respond to adversity. You can lay flat or you can choose to bounce back.”

Donald Trump Reportedly Plans To Withdraw From Paris Climate Accord!
President Donald Trump plans to withdraw from the Paris Agreement on climate change, multiple outlets reported Wednesday. This would make the United States one of just three countries outside the historic pact to reduce planet-warming emissions.
Trump pledged during his campaign to “cancel” the deal, but delayed a decision for months amid a split in the administration on the issue. But in recent weeks, the camp opposing the accord apparently convinced the president to abandon it ― despite few political advantages and harsh economic and diplomatic consequences.
Trump has not directly addressed the reports, but he did tweet his campaign slogan on Wednesday morning and said he would make an official announcement “over the next few days”:
I will be announcing my decision on the Paris Accord over the next few days. MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) May 31, 2017
Under the terms of the deal, the U.S. cannot officially withdraw until November 2019. But even an announcement that the country is looking to leave the deal shows that the White House has no plans to meet earlier targets for slashing greenhouse gas emissions.
That much was already clear. In March, Trump ordered the Environmental Protection Agency to review the Clean Power Plan ― a sweeping regulation passed by former President Barack Obama to limit emissions from the utility sector, by far the country’s biggest emitter. The policy was already stayed by the Supreme Court in February 2016 as a result of a lawsuit filed by former Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt, who is now Trump’s head of the EPA. Without the Clean Power Plan, the U.S. wouldn’t even come close to meeting its goals laid out in the 2015 Paris Agreement.
Trump vowed to jumpstart the U.S. economy by eliminating environmental regulations he blamed for holding back companies. In particular, he positioned himself as a staunch advocate for fossil fuels, nixing climate change funding from his proposed budget and scrapping rules that discourage pollution and boost renewable energy. But, somewhat ironically, major oil, gas and coal companies ― along with a plethora of other big corporations ― urged Trump to keep the U.S. in the Paris Agreement.
Environmental groups have little legal recourse given that the Obama administration bypassed the Senate to ratify the deal, arguing it did not constitute a treaty. But the Trump administration is still required to regulate carbon dioxide emissions as a public health threat under a 2007 Supreme Court ruling. How it plans to fulfill that legal responsibility that is unclear.
Then-Secretary of State John Kerry holds his 2-year-old granddaughter as he signs the Paris Agreement on climate change at United Nations Headquarters in New York City on April 22, 2016.
Quitting the Paris Agreement strikes a major diplomatic blow to the U.S. Only war-torn Syria and Nicaragua, the second-poorest country in the Western Hemisphere, are not included in the accord. Retreating from the agreement, which the U.S. took a lead role in brokering, brands the nation as a “rogue country” and a “climate pariah,” diplomats said. Without a seat at the table, the U.S. loses leverage over policy action on global warming, and cedes influence to rival superpower China, which has vowed to support poorer countries’ efforts to adapt to climate change.
United Nations Secretary-General António Guterres warned on Tuesday that U.S. rivals such as China, Russia and Iran would “fill the void” on climate action if Trump chose to withdraw.
“Who cares?” Myron Ebell, a top climate change denier who led Trump’s EPA transition team, told HuffPost on Tuesday. “If countries are moving in the wrong direction, I don’t think the leader of that movement has much to look forward to. It seems to me that President Trump has a chance to not only turn the direction of the country around but the direction of the world around. Good luck to China.”
Yet few credible, peer-reviewed scientists believe manmade climate change isn’t a major problem, and a growing number of investors are already pouring money into transforming the energy economy.
The economic effects of leaving the Paris Agreement would likely be devastating. The U.S. is poised to lose access to fast-growing clean energy markets as Europe, India and China gain major footholds in an industry estimated to be worth $6 trillion by 2030. Countries that tax emissions could now put a tariff on American-made imports, complicating Trump’s plans to reclaim the U.S. mantle as a top manufacturing hub.
“It’s very clear that the energy economy is heading in a direction that, if you don’t engage with climate change, you’re going to miss out on a large number of jobs that have already emerged,” David Waskow, director of the World Resource Institute’s international climate program, told HuffPost on Tuesday. “Withdrawing and retreating would have very negative implications for the U.S. economically.”
It’s unclear what Trump gains politically from the withdrawal. The deal had overwhelming support. Sixty-one percent of Americans said the country should remain in the deal, while just 17 percent support withdrawing and 21 percent aren’t sure, according to a HuffPost/YouGov poll conducted earlier this month. And more than 400 U.S. cities, 37 states, 800 universities and nearly half of all Fortune 500 companies have already set their own clean energy and emissions targets.
