Jennifer Lopez Looks FLAWLESS for her April 2018 Harper’s Bazaar Cover!
Jennifer Lopez is on the cover of the April 2018 issue of Harper’s Bazaar magazine. The new issue will hit newsstands on March 27th. This new J.LO photoshoot for Harper’s Bazaar, shot by Mariano Vivanco, is not to be missed. It’s simply breathtaking! It doesn’t only show off the “On The Floor” singer’s ageless stunning beauty but it also seeks to demonstrate Jennifer isn’t afraid of heights (oh, and for those of you in love/obsessed with Italian model Pietro Boselli, he appears shirtless in one picture lifting Jennifer Lopez up).
In the exclusive interview Jennifer Lopez gave the new issue of Harper’s Bazaar, the singer, actress and mother of two discussed subjects like the #MeToo movement, a potential marriage between she and Alex Rodriguez or people being amazed at how youthful she looks at almost 50.
“I haven’t been abused in the way some women have. But have I been told by a director to take off my shirt and show my boobs? Yes, I have. But did I do it? No, I did not.”
When I did speak up, I was terrified. I remember my heart beating out of my chest, thinking, ‘What did I do? This man is hiring me!’ It was one of my first movies. But in my mind, I knew the behavior wasn’t right. It could have gone either way for me. But I think ultimately the Bronx in me was like, ‘Nah, we’re not having it.’”
“I do believe in marriage, and I would love to grow old with somebody in a committed relationship. But I’m not forcing anything right now.
[Our relationship is] good, it’s healthy; we communicate well. We understand each other’s lives in a way that most other people couldn’t. We both entered the public eye in our early 20s and overachieved right from the start. And that affects every dynamic in your life, from your family to your work to your relationships. We have a similar makeup.”
“Affirmations are so important. I am youthful and timeless. I tell myself that every day, a few times a day. It sounds like clichéd bullshit, but it’s not: Age is all in your mind. Look at Jane Fonda. She really leans into the big fundamentals, like getting her rest, eight to 10 hours. She doesn’t drink, doesn’t smoke. She lives a very clean life.”

#RHoA: NeNe Spills a little Housewives Tea!
Ya Girl NeNe Leakes gave an interview to LA Confidential Magazine and decided to give some tidbits on The Real Housewives of Atlanta. Here some Tea she spilled.
NeNe on who is a good, solid Real Housewife!
She says: I don’t have anybody that I know that’s a good, solid housewife that has all of the things that the producers are always looking for. They’re looking for someone that’s in a relationship and who is willing to show their relationship. They’re looking for a girl who’s fabulous and has her own things going on. They want a girl who’s opinionated. All the things that they want is hard to find in one picture, you know what I’m saying? If you find a great girl who’s doing all those things, then she doesn’t want to show her relationship, or then her man doesn’t want to come on the show, or that kind of thing. So I don’t have anybody that I know.
Then that statement led to them asking her about Kenya Moore and she said: Oh, she’s definitely in a tough spot, and rightly so because so many of us, for so long, have had to expose our husbands and children to the show.
The she was asked about Marlo Hmpton getting a Peach she said: For the same reason that I just said, she doesn’t fit all of the things that they are always looking for. You don’t have to be in a marriage, but you do have to be in a relationship and willing to show your relationship, and they really have issues with girls not showing their relationship. So that’s one of the reasons, I think. Marlo’s been amazing to see and I thought she was super funny, fun, and everything. There may be an opportunity for her at some point to own a piece of it, but I believe that she will be around and will always be around.
Hmmmmm well what do y’all think?

#MARCHMADNESS SHOCKER! Defending champ North Carolina knocked out in second round of March Madness
It was "Black Sunday" redux for the North Carolina Tar Heels. The defending NCAA men's basketball champions had no answer for Texas A&M on either end of the floor and the Aggies blew out UNC, 86-65 Sunday afternoon in Charlotte.
Texas A&M advances to play Michigan on Thursday in the West Regional semifinals in Los Angeles. North Carolina's loss marks the second year in a row that the defending March Madness winner will miss the Sweet 16.
T.J. Starks led the way for A&M with 21 points, while Robert Williams added 13 rebounds, helping the Aggies take a 50-36 edge on the glass while shooting 52 percent — including 10 of 24 from 3-point range.
Joel Berry II scored 21 points in his final game for the second-seeded Tar Heels (26-11), who were trying to reach their third straight Final Four. North Carolina shot just 33 percent, including 6 of 31 (.194) on 3-pointers after entering the game shooting nearly 37 percent from behind the arc.
The Tar Heels were a very different team than last year's title winner, namely in the way they leaned on a small-ball lineup. But expectations grew that they could make a third straight Final Four run as UNC found a final-month groove, including two wins against Duke and a trip to the Atlantic Coast Conference Tournament championship game.
Instead -- after a heartbreaking title-game loss to Villanova in 2016 followed by last year's title win against Gonzaga -- the Tar Heels found themselves eliminated on the tournament's opening weekend for the first time since 2014.
UNC led 20-13 early only to see the Aggies go on a 15-0 run to change the entire dynamic of the game. Tyler Davis (18 points, nine rebounds) got loose for three baskets inside as the Aggies asserted themselves in the paint, while UNC started missing shot after shot.
By halftime, the Aggies had pushed to a 42-28 lead, then got 3-pointers from Admon Gilder and D.J. Hogg to open the second half and push the margin to a stunning 20 points.
Amazingly enough, the Tar Heels got no closer than 17 again to stun a crowd that was wearing a lot of blue and expecting the Tar Heels to advance.
The loss was just the second time the Tar Heels had lost an NCAA Tournament game in their home state. The first time happened on March 11, 1979, when No. 1-seeded UNC -- led by the legendary Dean Smith -- was stunned by Ivy League champions Penn in Raleigh. Two hours later, No. 2 seed Duke fell to St. John's, forever immortalizing that day as "Black Sunday" in North Carolina.
Kendall Jenner and Ed Sheeran Slammed via Twitter for Appearing in Chris Brown’s New Music Video
Lil Dicky and Chris Brown’s new song, “Freaky Friday,” shot to the top of the iTunes charts after the music video dropped on Thursday, March 15, but there was also quite a bit of backlash surrounding the release.
Kendall Jenner and Ed Sheeran, both of whom make cameos in the hilarious video, were slammed by fans on Twitter for working with Brown, 28, who pleaded guilty to physically assaulting then-girlfriend Rihanna in 2009. He also has a tumultuous relationship with his ex Karrueche Tran, who had a restraining order taken out against him in 2017.
Earlier this week, Brown made headlines after Snapchat posted an advertisement that made light of his assault conviction. The message asked users whether they’d rather “slap Rihanna” or “punch Chris Brown.” A spokesperson for the social media app apologized in a statement to Us Weekly on Wednesday, March 14, saying the “advert was reviewed and approved in error, as it violates our advertising guidelines.”
Jenner and Sheeran have yet to publicly respond to the backlash.

Glen ‘Big Baby’ Davis responds to drug arrest with jet, pile of cash: 'Mad 'cause a black man got money'
On Saturday, news broke of former NBA player Glen “Big Baby” Davis being arrested in February after police say they found cash and around one-fourth of a pound of marijuana in a Maryland hotel room he was occupying.
Davis, a key role player on the 2008 Boston Celtics championship team who last played for the Los Angeles Clippers in 2015, allowed police to search his room after the owner of the hotel smelled marijuana, WMAR in Baltimore reports.
“They recovered 126 grams of marijuana,” Aberdeen Police Lieutenant William Reiber told WMAR. “In addition to that, there was a briefcase that contained $92,164 of U.S. currency along with a ledger that contained language which is consistent with someone involved in the sale and distribution of narcotics.”
The February 7 arrest led to seven charges of drug possession and distribution that are still pending, according to the report. Davis’ attorney told WMAR that Davis looks forward to his day in court to clear his name.
Davis reiterated his attorney’s stance on Instagram later on Saturday, taking a slightly less subtle approach.
Davis, apparently riding on a private jet in the Instagram video, maintained his innocence while sitting next to a briefcase full of cash embellished with his Celtics NBA championship ring.
The post was removed later in the day from Davis’ Instagram page, but the video was preserved on Twitter.
“Don’t believe all that shit on the internet,” Davis said. “I will have my day in court. They’re just mad ’cause a black man got money, man. Just trying to keep a black man down.”
Davis played eight seasons in the NBA and earned an estimated $33 million in salary.
His court date is scheduled for early April, according to WMAR.
Logic And his Wife Jessica Andrea has Split
Following two years of marriage, Logic and his wife Jessica Andrea have reportedly called it quits.
The rapper, 28, and social media personality-turned-singer, 25, decided to separate but neither has filed for divorce just yet, according to TMZ. Fans noticed that Andrea unfollowed Logic on Instagram, but the Bobby Tarantino rapper still follows her.
Logic and Andrea were married in October 2015, when the rapper was 25 and the singer was 23. They don’t have any children together and it remains unclear when they decided to split.\
Sources say that a reconciliation seems unlikely and that they are set to put their home, which they purchased together last year, on the market soon.
Logic spoke about their relationship shortly before marrying Andrea. “I think it’s just something I’ve always wanted,” he told MTV News at the time. “I was just waiting for the right person…I [proposed] in a photo booth. It was pretty epic. It’s just a spot that we both went to. It was real special to her. She took me there on one of our first dates. We went back again and when the photo booth counted down – 3, 2, 1- I pulled out the ring and got it on film.”
It seemed like their relationship was going strong in December, when Logic surprised Andrea with a Mercedes-Benz G-Class, and then in January, when Andrea accompanied the rapper to the Grammys, where he was nominated and performed.
Andrea also appears on the artwork for Logic’s latest mixtape, Bobby Tarantino II, which dropped last week
The Roots Canceled their SXSW Concert After Bomb Threat
The Tonight Show house band The Roots had to cancel their SXSW concert Sat Night at Austin’s Fair Market due to a bomb threat.
At first, local news sources were saying that the Grammy-winning band had to cancel their concert due to a “security concern.” The Austin Chronicle then reported that the abrupt cancelation was due to a bomb threat.
Roots drummer Questlove tweeted about the cancellation of the concert and then posted an Instagram story (which has since been deleted) with the caption: “Welp. It’s 2018. Show canceled. These are the times we now live in.” The official SXSW confirmed the cancelation while the Bud Light account tweeted, “Your safety and the safety of all fans at SXSW is our most important priority.”
This news comes shortly after the string of package explosions were reported in the residential areas of Austin. One of these bombings killed 17-year old Draylen Mason and while the other ended up wounding a 75-year old Hispanic woman.
#MARCHMADNESS: Michigan’s Momentary Swag Overdose Ended Houston’s Thrill Ride and UMBC Stunned Virginia!
On Friday, UMBC beat Virginia, the biggest upset in NCAA tournament history, hypothetically the most improbable thing we’d seen in this tournament or any. A men’s no. 16 seed hadn’t beaten a 1-seed in 135 tries. But after Michigan’s buzzer-beater to defeat Houston 64–63 on Saturday night, I’m not sure the 1–16 upset was the most improbable thing in the tournament. If Jordan Poole got to take this shot 135 more times, do you think he would’ve hit it again?
Poole’s a good shooter, 37.8 percent from behind the arc on the year, but he had hit just two of his last 13 3-point attempts. He’s at least 35 feet from the hoop on the play, one the team calls “Indiana,” one they’ve apparently practiced “thousands” of times. But there isn’t much that can prepare you for the moment when you have just over a second to shoot for your school’s life. There’s a defender guarding Poole about as tightly as a shot can be defended, forcing him to shoot at a higher angle than he’d normally want to shoot. The force of hurling a ball so high and so far gets Poole way off-balance, as he splits his legs while shooting and tumbles to the ground.
He swished it. And then he ran for his life, in mortal fear of the 7-foot German man trying to physically engulf him.
Ben Affleck Goes Shirtless and Shows Off Massive Back Tattoo After Claiming It Was Fake!
Almost two years after claiming his massive back tattoo was fake and something he only got “for a movie,” Ben Affleck was spotted showing off the ink while shirtless in Hawaii.
Affleck, 45, was photographed during a training session alongside Charlie Hunnam, Oscar Isaac and Garrett Hedlund as the costars prepared for their upcoming film Triple Frontier.
The back piece, which is a full color picture of a phoenix taking flight, completely takes up Affleck’s back.
Although the public got its first glimpse of Affleck’s tattoo in the summer of 2015, shortly after the actor and Jennifer Garnerannounced their split, it wasn’t seen in full until December of that year while the actor was filming Live by Night.
While at the time PEOPLE reported the inking was the real deal, in March 2016 Affleck claimed it was just a temporary thing.
“[It’s] fake for a movie,” Affleck told Extra’s Mario Lopez. “I actually do have a number of tattoos but I try to have them in places where you don’t have to do a lot of cover up they get sort of addictive, tattoos, after awhile.”
But while Affleck may have gone on the record about how the tattoo wasn’t real, that didn’t stop his exes from speaking out about the inking.
In a 2016 interview with Vanity Fair, Garner hinted she wasn’t the biggest fan of her ex’s back tattoo.
“You know what we would say in my hometown about that? ‘Bless his heart,’ ” she told the publication.
“A phoenix rising from the ashes. Am I the ashes in this scenario? I take umbrage,” she said. “I refuse to be the ashes.”
Putting the matter even more bluntly, Jennifer Lopez — who was previously engaged to the actor — actually said the tattoo was “awful.”
“It’s awful! What are you doing?” Lopez told Andy Cohen during the “Plead the Fifth” segment on Watch What Happens Live.
“His tattoos always have too many colors, they shouldn’t be so colorful. They should be cooler,” she added.
The Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice star also has a dolphin on his right hip covering up the name of his high school sweetheart, and has been seen with barbed wire across his right bicep, a large design featuring a fish and a skull and crossbones on his right arm and some initials inscribed on his shoulder blade.
Jim Carrey Painted a Sarah Huckabee Sanders Portrait, and It’s Not a Pretty Picture (Photo)
You might want to put a “Mask” on Jim Carrey’s portrait of Sarah Huckabee Sanders. The actor revealed his latest work of art on Saturday, and it’s not a pretty picture.
Though Carrey didn’t mention Sanders by name, many Twitter users found it to be a perfect rendering of President Trump’s White House press secretary.
“This is the portrait of a so-called Christian whose only purpose in life is to lie for the wicked,” Carrey captioned his piece. “Monstrous!”
Anyway, here it is:
