Pink Covers People’s 2018 “Beautiful Issue” with Her 2 Kids
Pink is on the cover of People magazine’s beauty issue, and she’s got some adorable company — her young children.
The magazine has rebranded its “Most Beautiful” issue as “The Beautiful Issue” and features dozens of celebrities, including some posing with their best friends, their rescue pets and without makeup.
People Editor-in-Chief Jess Cagle says the magazine adopted the approach to “make clear the issue is not a beauty contest.” Cagle says Pink was chosen after editors saw photos of the singer with her children, 15-month-old son Jameson Moon and 6-year-old daughter Willow Sage.
Pink offers her thoughts on parenting in the issue and says she believes in giving affection and letting her son and daughter know that they can count on her and her husband, motocross racer Carey Hart.
“My parents obviously did not believe in that and I worked out okay,” the singer told the magazine. “I always tell Willow, ‘I’m going to teach you the rules so that you’ll know how and when to break them.’”
Several stars who have been featured on the cover of the magazine’s “Most Beautiful” issues in the past are included in the 2018 edition, including Courteney Cox, Kate Hudson, Nicole Kidman and Julia Roberts, who has been featured on the cover of the “Most Beautiful” issue a record five times.
Among the men featured in the issue are Jimmy Kimmel, Drake, Lin-Manuel Miranda and Olympic figure skater Adam Rippon.
The issue is on newsstands today.
#RHOA: Kandi Burruss Takes On Kim Zolciak & Sheree Whitfield
What’s the real Tea, Is Kandi the one who sent Kim running from the set?
Kandi Burruss and Kim Zolciak are going to face off yet again in part 3 of the Real Housewives of Atlanta season 10 reunion.
Kandi and Kim have been going back and forth all season over accusations that Kandi tried to bag Kim. On Sunday, they will have their final face-off over this matter, and Kandi had some of that smoke to Sheree Whitfield, too.
In a clip from the next installment of the RHOA season 10 reunion, Kandi calls out Kim and Sheree about her alleged attempts to seduce Kim. While Kim and Sheree tried to backpedal and deny making any such claims, Bravo says otherwise.
Could this be what finally makes Kim walk off the set? Find out when the next part of the RHOA season 10 reunion airs Sunday night at 8 p.m. on Bravo.
#Empire: Bridgeport Conn resident lands guest role on TV show 'Empire'
A 19-year-old from Bridgeport has landed a guest role on the Fox television series "Empire."
Series executive producer Lee Daniels was so impressed by a question that Theo Wilson asked at a September fan forum that Daniels flew Wilson and his foster father to Chicago in March to film a scene for the show.
The Harding High School senior says Daniels admired the way he spoke about his experience growing up in foster care. His question had to do with getting into show business. Wilson says he'll never forget being called upon to share his story.
"It was shocking," Wilson says. "I had to, like, think, wait, that's my name, so it was a very exciting moment."

Wilson says he's not allowed to talk about his role until the episode airs May 16 at 8 p.m. on Fox.

#HipHopNews: Doctor Dre Talks "Yo! MTV Raps" 30th Anniversary Concert & Possible Reboot
NEW YORK CITY, NY – Yo! MTV Raps aired from 1988 to 1995 and has since become synonymous with Golden Era Hip Hop. On June 1, Brooklyn’s Barclay Center will host the Yo! MTV Raps: 30th Anniversary Experience featuring an all-star lineup.
Big Daddy Kane, the Juice Crew, Eric B. and Rakim, Doug E. Fresh, KRS-One, Boogie Down Productions, EPMD, Public Enemy’s Flavor Flav, Melle Mel, the Furious Five, Pharcyde, Brand Nubian, Nice and Smooth, Onyx, Black Sheep, Das EFX, Special Ed, Yo-Yo and Kid Capri are all expected to make an appearance.
Just like back in the day, weekend host Fab 5 Freddy and the weekday crew – Ed Lover, Doctor Dre and T-Money – will be spearheading the event alongside DJ Skribble, Kool DJ Red Alert and Chuck Chillout.
“We came together with an idea that would be a great homage to the I Love ’90s Tour,” Doctor Dre explains. “We figured there should be a Yo! MTV Raps Tour. We reached out to our manager, Charlie Stettle, and he went to work.”
When it comes to a reboot of the O.G. television show, MTV says it “will reinvent the franchise for a new generation as a both a linear and digital series across its platform.” But Dre is unsure of how it will play out.
“That’s what they say,” he says. “I don’t know how that’s going to work in today’s world. The unique thing about Yo! MTV Raps was videos were very important back then. In today’s streaming world, not sure how that would work. I’m not sure what they plan on doing. All I know is on June 1, we’ll be at the Barclays Center to celebrate the show and its success — internationally, nationally and globally.”
The 2BlindMics podcast host adds, “It might be coming to a city near you. Many more announcements to come.”
MTV will livestream the arena concert on its website.
Tickets to Yo! MTV Raps: 30th Anniversary Experience go on sale April 21.

Paula Patton's Boyfriend Says He and His Wife Were 'Separated' Before Dating Paula
Paula Patton’s no home-wrecker, at least according to her new boyfriend.
The actress, 42, recently revealed that for the last month she’s been dating a new guy, realtor Zach Quittman, who, it was later reported, is currently married to another woman. The situation has drawn criticism on social media, where some have pointed out that Patton recently left her ex-husband Robin Thicke for cheating during their marriage.
But according to Quittman, he and his estranged wife are no longer together. “We were totally separated before I moved on,” the realtor says
He added that they’ve been separated “for awhile.” Quittman also responded to rumors that his estranged wife was caught off guard by his moving on. “Obviously there’s three sides to every story and I’m not pointing the finger or saying anyone’s wrong, but we were definitely separated before I moved on,” he explained.
On Wednesday, the duo were spotted out in New York City holding hands and smiling.
The Philadelphia Black Men Arrested At Starbucks SPEAKS OUT and The Police Commissioner Apologizes!
The Philadelphia Black Men Arrested At Starbucks Said They Were There For 2 Minutes Before 911 Call
“We wasn’t read any rights ― nothing,” said Donte Robinson. “Just double-lock handcuffs behind our backs and escorted out and put into a squad car.”
The two black men arrested at a Starbucks in Philadelphia last week while waiting for a friend spoke out publicly for the first time Thursday, revealing the store manager called 911 two minutes after they arrived.
Rashon Nelson and Donte Robinson walked into the Starbucks on April 12 at approximately 4:35 p.m., they told ABC’s “Good Morning America.” Nelson said he immediately asked the store manager if he could use the bathroom, but was told restrooms were for paying customers only.
Nelson said he “left it at that” and joined Robinson at a table to wait for their friend to arrive for their scheduled 4:45 p.m. business meeting. The Starbucks manager then approached the men and asked if they wanted to order something, according to Robinson, and they declined.
At 4:37 p.m., approximately two minutes after they had arrived, the manager called 911.
″They can’t be here for us,” said Robinson, recalling his initial reaction when police officers entered the Starbucks a few minutes later.
“As soon as they approached us, they just said we had to leave,” Nelson said. “There was no question of, you know, ’Was there a problem here between you and the manager? [or] ‘What happened?’”
Police didn’t explain why they were being arrested, Robinson said.
“We wasn’t read any rights ― nothing,” Robinson said. “Just double-lock handcuffs behind our backs and escorted out and put into a squad car.”
Video showing the men’s arrests went viral over the weekend, sparking protests at the store and calls to boycott Starbucks.
“The police were called because these men hadn’t ordered anything,” Melissa DePino, a writer who recorded the incident, tweeted last week. “They were waiting for a friend to show up, who did as they were taken out in handcuffs for doing nothing. All the other white ppl are wondering why it’s never happened to us when we do the same thing.”
The store manager who called 911 has since left the company, according to Starbucks. Company CEO Kevin Johnson has publicly apologized and vowed to “fix” the issue, in part more training for store managers on company guidelines and unconscious bias.
More than 8,000 Starbucks locations will be closed next month so employees can receive racial bias training, the company announced Tuesday.
Nelson and Robinson spent hours in a jail cell after their arrests, The Associated Press reported. They were released around midnight after the district attorney declined to prosecute them for trespassing.
“You go from being someone who’s just trying to be an entrepreneur, having your own dreams and aspirations, and then this happens,” Nelson told AP. “How do you handle it? Do you stand up? Do you fight? Do you sit down and just watch everyone else fight for you? Do you let it slide, like we let everything else slide with injustice?”
The two men are now involved in mediation with Starbucks, which they hope will lead to lasting change, such as requiring a customer bill of rights to be posted in stores and new policies for customer ejections and racial profiling.
“This is something that has been going on for years and everyone’s blind to it, but they know what’s going on, if you get what I mean” Nelson said. He added that he and Robinson hope to “help people understand that it’s not just a black people thing ― it’s a people thing. That’s what we want to see out of this and that’s true change.”
Philadelphia Police Commissioner Richard Ross apologized to the two black men arrested for doing nothing other than sitting inside a Starbucks while waiting for an associate to arrive.
“I failed miserably,” he said during a press conference Friday. “I exacerbated the situation with my messaging, it’s as simple as that.”
Ross faced heavy backlash for defending police action used during the confrontation at the Philadelphia Starbucks. He previously said officers did “absolutely nothing wrong” when they approached Rashon Nelson and Donte Robinson at the coffee shop over the weekend.
Netflix Cancels ‘Seven Seconds’
Netflix has decided not to renew their crime-drama, “Seven Seconds,” for a second season.
The Veena Sud (“The Killing“) anthological crime drama starring Regina King, Russell Hornsby and Clare-Hope Ashitey, told the story of a family’s battle against indifference and corruption as they try to uncover the truth about the murder of their teenage son.
The series was absolutely excellent and I understood it to be a limited series, but the ending left the possibility of a second season and got everyone’s hopes up.
Cindy Holland, VP of Original Content at Netflix said, “Nah.” We loved working with Veena Sud, Regina King and the cast and crew of ‘Seven Seconds’.
Together they created a compelling, timely and relevant crime drama. The first season is a complete, stand-alone story that we are proud to feature on Netflix for years to come.
Beyoncé and Ivy Park Partner with Figure Skating Nonprofit In Harlem
After Coachella, Beyoncé continues to make headlines. The “Lemonade” singer donated $100,000 to four HBCU’s on Monday and then Tuesday, April 17, her clothing line dropped a video collaboration with Figure Skating in Harlem, a nonprofit organization dedicated to helping girls.
The world-renowned singer featured the skaters in an advertisement for her sports/athleisure line “Ivy Park.” Sharon Cohen, who founded the organization in 1997, told Vogue “we believe that, given access to artistic sports like figure skating, girls will soar in all areas of their lives and be better equipped to accomplish their dreams.” She continued,”Beyoncé is a fierce, authentically powerful woman of color. She inspires young women and girls globally who look just like her to do the exact same—to be fearless, free, and proud of themselves.”
The nonprofit requires all students to make good grades and live in Harlem, Upper Manhattan or the lower Bronx.

Gospel Artist and Former Destiny’s Child Star Michelle Williams Is Engaged to Chad Johnson.
Well he put a ring on it! The Destiny’s Child singer revealed exclusively to PEOPLE that after a year of dating, she is engaged to boyfriend Chad Johnson.
After meeting at a spiritual retreat in March of 2017, Williams, 37, and Johnson, 40, kept in touch, building a strong relationship through conversations on Instagram, over text message and via FaceTime calls. They took their whirlwind romance public in July; on March 21, Johnson popped the question with a stunning 5-carat engagement ring; and the happy couple plan to wed this summer.
He’s a Pastor and Pro Sports Chaplain
Johnson found a passion for Scripture as a teenager when, at age 17, he attended a Fellowship of Christian Athletes Camp. He went on to earn a Bachelor’s Degree in Christian Ministries from Arizona Christian University in Phoenix.
Over the years, Johnson has worked as a pro sports chaplain, leading athletes — including the Arizona Cardinals, Pittsburgh Steelers and L.A. Dodgers — and their families in daily devotionals.
Since 2006, Johnson has run Elevate International, a nonprofit that serves urban youth and families with spiritual retreats. It was at a 2017 retreat for adults that Johnson met Williams.

‘Marlon’ Returns To Nbc On June 14 At 9 P.M.
Super excited to announce that NBC’s comedy series Marlon returns to primetime this summer beginning June 14 at 9 p.m. EST.
Marlon features Marlon Wayans as an attentive — somewhat juvenile — single father who is co-parenting his two young children with his mature and very put-together ex-wife, Ashley, played by Essence Atkins. While his fatherly advice may often be misguided, and he sometimes lets his own outsized personality and unpredictable Internet superstardom get in his way, for Marlon, family always comes first.
Rounding out the cast are Diallo Riddle, Bresha Webb, Notlim Taylor and Amir O’Neil.
