Nicki Minaj is Serving Blonde Ambition on the cover of ‘Harper’s Bazaar Russia’
Nicki Minaj is the latest celeb to cover Harper’s Bazaar Russia. Lensed by Greg Swales, the rap star serves with a blonde bob unit styled by the legendary Kim Kimble and a glowing beat crafted by Sheika Daley.
Styled by KC Jones, the Chun Li rapper poses it up in a slew of high fashion pieces from Tom Ford, Roberto Cavalli and Phillip Plein. Inside the spread, she gets candid about taking a four-year break, gaining self confidence, how she handles hate and so much more.
On taking a four-year break:
“Although my music has been growing, I felt like myself was stuck somewhere,” she shares. “So I had to grow to catch up with my rap. I started recording ‘Queen’ when I was in my best shape. At some point everything was going so right, that I started panicking: it can’t be that easy, it shouldn’t be. That is why today I work on every beat with perfectionism.”
On gaining self-confidence:
“I had to work on it a lot,” she shares. “I’m just a normal girl that had cried a thousand times sitting near the mirror and spent most of the childhood inside of the car as a way to escape from parents fighting.”
On how she handles the hate:
“At some point I have realised that the ones that hate me the most are the ones that are aware of how powerful I am.”
And she got slammed by the LGBTQ Community for being on the cover of a magazine that still mistreats LGBTQ People.
#RHoA: Should Shamari DeVoe be the next Atlanta Housewife?
New Edition star Ronnie DeVoe wife, Blaque singer Shamari DeVoe, might be gearing up to join the cast of “The Real Housewives of Atlanta.”
An RHOA fan account posted a video of current ‘wives NeNe Leakes, Cynthia Bailey, Kandi Burruss, Porsha Williams and friend of the show Eva Marcille jamming at ATL Live On The Park music showcase Tuesday, June 10. While Ronnie’s group Bell Biv DeVoe performed, so did Shamari and her fellow Blaque member Brandi Williams.
Fans have been speaking out on if they think Shamari, who recently welcomed twins with her husband of 12 years, would be a good fit on the show.
“I’m here for this one!!!”
“Don’t do it, Sis…Continue to keep yall marriage private. Seems like couples get into trouble when they air their business on these shows….”
“I’m all for another former singer of a group coming on and is married and made a brand for herself. I just wonder if her and Kandi will clash since they both come from groups.”
“This is a BOSS A$$ move [for] her @therealhousewivesofatlanta! I’m all the way here for this! Hell yeah.”
“I don’t think she should involve herself in they drama and pettiness. @shamaridevoe.”
If Shamari does join, she’d be the latest among a few others who are rumored to be replacing Kenya Moore and Shereé Whitfield.
Marcielle was rumored to be taking Moore’s spot in June with sources telling the Jasmine Brand that her storyline would revolve around her life as a second-time new mom and her approaching wedding. Friend of the show Marlo Hampton, who had been seen filming with the ladies in Miami last month, was also said to be joining the cast full time after tweeting, “finally got my peach.”
So would she or she wouldn’t be a fit for RHOA?

Paris Jackson just low-key took a big step in her public life by revealing a very intimate detail about her sexuality.
While answering fans’ queries on Instagram via their knew question sticker, the daughter of Michael Jackson revealed she is bisexual, although she does not care for the label.
Responding to a fan’s question of “Are you bi?” Jackson wrote: “that’s what you guys call it so i guess but who needs labels.”
It had been rumored the 20-year-old model/actress may have been exploring her options when she appeared to be in a romantic fling with model Cara Delevingne.

Demi Moore Makes Surprise Appearance at Ex-Husband Bruce Willis' Roast!
Demi Moore surprises the crowd (and especially her ex husband Bruce Willis) at his Comedy Central Roast on Saturday night (July 14) at the Hollywood Palladium in Los Angeles.
She got on onstage and said “People wonder why our marriage came to an end, and in all honesty I think it was because some jealousy started to creep in. I think Bruce never really got over the fact that I rocked the bald look better than he did,” Demi joked (via Variety). “After our divorce, he said he considered the end of our marriage his biggest failure, but Bruce, don’t be so hard on yourself, you’ve had much bigger failures. I mean Planet Hollywood, ‘Hudson Hawk,’ ‘Striking Distance,’ campaigning for Michael Dukakis, turning down Clooney’s role in ‘Ocean’s Eleven’ to focus on playing the harmonica?”
Bruce and Demi‘s three daughters were also in attendance at the event!
The Roast of Bruce Willis is set to air on Comedy Central on Sunday, July 29.

Girlfriend of Wood Harris Accused him Of Assaulting & Spitting On Her, No Charges Filed
Wood Harris has been accused of assaulting and spitting on his longtime girlfriend leaving her hospitalized.
The attack reportedly took place in April when the actor, who is best known for his roles on “The Wire” and Paid In Full, was in Philly shooting Creed II.
Anya Richardson says she was in Wood’s hotel room when he struck her multiple times in her stomach, ribs and neck.
She also claims Wood spat in her face and choked her. Anya went to the hospital the next day and filed a police report.
The Philadephia District Attorney’s office declined to prosecute because they couldn’t prove a crime occurred.
Anya plans to take legal action against Wood. Her attorney, Alberto Ebanks, said his client “feels there is little choice but to pursue alternative remedies to help protect other women from the threat of assault.”
Wood’s rep is calling BS saying, “The account by this woman is pure fabrication. Wood was never questioned by the authorities and that should speak to the authenticity of the accusation. No further comment.”

#RHONY’ Star Luann de Lesseps Sued by Ex-Husband and Her Kids Over $8 Million Dollar Home Sale
“Real Housewives of New York” star Luann de Lesseps has been hit with a lawsuit by her own kids and her ex-husband who claim she screwed them over in a house deal.
According to court documents obtained by The Blast, Alexandre de Lesseps claims the judgment in their divorce called for him to hand over the deed to their marital home in Bridgehampton, New York.
Alexandre claims the home was supposed to be put in a trust where the couple’s two kids, Victoria and Noel, each would have half of the interest.
But Alexandre claims Luann violated the deal by never creating the trust. Her ex-husband and the kids claim Luann sold the home for $8 million and used the money to purchase a new home nearby for $3.1 million.
However, per their deal, if she sold the home and bought another the kids were suppose to have an ownership interest … but that never happened. Alexandre claims Luann has threatened to sell her new home on the cheap and leave Suffolk County and buy herself a luxury home in upstate New York.
They are suing to block Luann from being able to sell off the home and for her to follow the terms of their divorce agreement.
The case is ongoing.
#BroadwayNews: ‘Angels in America’, Starring Andrew Garfield and Nathan Lane, Closes on Broadway
The revival of Tony Kushner’s landmark account of a bewildered nation at the dawn of the AIDS epidemic became the most Tony-nominated play in history.
The Tony-winning National Theatre revival of Tony Kushner’s Pulitzer Prize-winning masterwork Angels in America: A Gay Fantasia on National Themes ends its limited run July 15, after opening at Broadway’s Neil Simon Theatre March 25.
Directed by Tony Award winner Marianne Elliott (War Horse), this new production of Angels in America opened to critical acclaim at the National Theatre last May, where it became the fastest-selling production in the theatre's history, and to rave reviews on Broadway in March. Earning 11 Tony Award nominations, it set a record for most-nominated play, ultimately winning three including Best Revival.
#BoxOfficeNews: 'Hotel Transylvania 3' Frightened ‘Skyscraper’ to Third Place!
Sony Animation's Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation continued the franchise tradition of debuting atop the weekend box office and doing so with over $40 million over the three-day. The weekend also featured a strong expansion from Annapurna's Sorry to Bother You, which landed in seventh position on the weekend chart, but unfortunately for Universal's Skyscraper, the weekend's other new wide release, it struggled over its opening weekend, failing to meet the studio's expectations, delivering a third place finish.
With an estimated $44.1 million, Sony Animation's Hotel Transylvania 3 finished atop the weekend box office. While that total does include the $2.6 million the film brought in from Thursday evening previews, it doesn't include the $1.27 million from Amazon Prime showings on June 30, which bring the film's domestic cume to just over $45 million so far. The film's three-day opening tops the $42.5 million the first film in the franchise brought in back in 2012, while falling a bit short of the $48.5 million opening for Hotel Transylvania 2 in September 2015. That said, given the competition from Disney and Pixar's record-breaking Incredibles 2, which is still in theaters and inside the weekend's top five, this is a strong start, proving how healthy this franchise is.
Hotel Transylvania 3 joined its predecessors as all three have now received an "A-" CinemaScore from opening day audiences. The film played to an audience that was 52% female and 32% of the overall audience was 25 years or older. Over the long run, it will be interesting to see where this film ends up as a domestic performance anywhere from $125-150+ million is entirely possible.
Disney and Marvel's Ant-Man and the Wasp dropped a hefty 62%, the largest second weekend drop for a sequel within the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The result is a second place finish with an estimated $29.1 million, bringing its ten-day total to $132.8 million. Ant-Man and the Wasp joins Guardians of the Galaxy, The Incredible Hulk, Spider-Man: Homecoming and Captain America: The First Avenger as the only films in the Marvel Cinematic Universe to not repeat at #1 over their second weekends at the box office. Internationally, the film added $35.3 million from 44 markets this weekend, pushing its global cume to $283.7 million.
Universal and Legendary's Skyscraper landed in third position with an estimated $25.48 million over its debut weekend, falling short of Mojo's weekend forecast as well as the studio's anticipated $30 million performance. For star Dwayne Johnson, while Skyscraper opened above Baywatch, this debut is $4.5 million behind 2014's Hercules, which went on to gross $72.7 million domestically.
#WIMBLEDON: Novak Djokovic Wins Fourth Wimbledon Title
The Serbian tennis star bested South African eighth seed Kevin Anderson.
LONDON, July 15 (Reuters) ― Novak Djokovic was back to his brutal best as he beat South African eighth seed Kevin Anderson 6-2 6-2 7-6(3) to win the Wimbledon men’s singles title for the fourth time on Sunday.
The Serb was back roaring into the skies in triumph as he captured a 13th Grand Slam title to end a 25-month barren run at the slams.
After being kept on court for almost 11 hours during his last two wins over defending champion Roger Federer and John Isner, fatigue finally caught up with Anderson on Sunday as he failed in his bid to become the first South African man to win the Wimbledon title.
Djokovic had also spent more than five hours to subdue Rafael Nadal in the semi-finals but he relied on his supreme levels of fitness to outlast Anderson, with the South African netting a service return on match point.
