Last night, BET’s annual premiere of Black Girls Rock aired for the third year in a row. Women of every race were inspired by the show which took place in Newark, New Jersey at the Performing Arts Center.
Celebrities like Jennifer Hudson and the iconic Patti Labelle showed why they were black girls who rocked when they hit the stage for their dynamic performances. Kelly Rowland and Sevyn Streeter were no different, the two ladies showed ultimate girl power while performing Gone from Kelly’s Talk A Good Game album. Eve joined Kelly and Sevyn with her rap verse from the balcony.
Janelle Monae brought her high energy to the stage while performing her new single I Can’t Describe (The Way I Feel).
In case you missed it last night, watch the performances below.
Check out the red carpet flicks in the gallery below.
Isn’t it ironic that Meek Mill brought Nicki Minaj out during his set and Kendrick Lamar did the same with Lil’ Kim this past weekend at Power 105.1′s Powerhouse concert? Although Kendrick and Meek aren’t necessarily beefing it’s quite clear that the two aren’t the best of friends.
There’s one ni–a in particular that needs to realize there’s levels to this sh-t.
Which was a clear shot at Meek. Luckily no diss shots were thrown this time around from Meek or Kendrick nor Nicki or Kim. All four MC’s hopped on stage and did what they do best for their fans and the event was a success.
Drizzy put a smile on the faces of his nieces Spirit and Sade when he pulled them up on stage during his show in Charlotte, NC and sung to them. Uncle Drake, remixed his Hold On, We’re Going Home lyrics for the girls:
Your everything that I see
I’ll be your uncle and your uncle, endlessly
I can’t get over you, you left your mark on me
I’ll give you ice cream and candies endlessly
What a great uncle! Watch below.
Drake even gives the girls a chance to show off their vocal abilities.
You know you’ve finally made it when you get an interview with Power 105.1′s “The Breakfast Club”, and R&B newcomer August Alsina has done just that.
With his hit single I luv this sh-t topping the charts, the 21-year old New Orleans singer seems to be on top of the world. He recently sat down with DJ Envy, Angela Yee and Charlamagne Tha God to talk about signing with Def Jam, the success of I luv this sh-t, and how he managed to snag Trey Songz and Chris Brown for the remix.
He also spoke about being influenced by Lauryn Hill and Lyfe Jennings, why he didn’t sign to YMCMB and much more.
A$AP Rocky takes his pretty boy swag to another level in his latest video Angels.
With the help of the A$AP Mobb, Rocky and his friends sticks up a nearby convenience store in NYC and leaves with a garbage bag full of cash. Unlike any thief we’ve ever seen before, A$AP is dressed for the fashion gawds while doing his dirty work. Once the mission is completed A$AP and his crew makes a run for it on their BMX bikes.
This year has probably been the most creative as far as costumes go for Halloween so it’s strange that Rihanna and Karrueche somehow managed to dress up as the exact same thing. Chile they even posed the same west sii-iideeeee! He-he!
Four days ago Karrueche posted the above photo on Instagram wearing khakis, a pair of The Kill boxers and an unbuttoned flannel. Under it she wrote “Chola”. A chola is considered to be a gang banging latin girl, usually Mexican or Puerto Rican and they are most common in Southern California.
Last night, Rihanna debuted her chola look on Instagram with her fellow gang members. Rih put a little twist on the look by calling herself a “chola zombie”. While we can definitely see why Rihanna would dress up as a chola we aren’t sure if she copied off of Karrueche or if this was already under wraps. What we will say is that we are living for those edges Rih. Ha!
Congratulations are in order for Tamar Braxton, Adrienne Bailon, Jeanni Mai, Loni Love and Tamera Mowry-Housley. The star studded cast are set to hit daytime television again, next fall in September of 2014. The Real talk show has been picked up by Fox and Bet and will air across major cities such as Chicgo, Philadelphia, New York, L.A., Houston, Tampa, Boston, Dallas, Detroit and a few others.
The ratings did extremely well because of the diversity, originality and chemistry these ladies brought to the table unlike any other daytime talk show. Ken Werner from Warner Bros Television stated:
The Real brought viewers a unique combination of elements that were missing from daytime: a real, multi-cultural conversation about issues that women of all ages are talking about. Daytime viewers from across the nation tuned in everyday to share in the fun, authentic, energetic and wonderfully outrageous hour that is The Real experience. We are very excited to be bring this distinctive unique series to stations for the Fall of 14.
Frank Cicha from Fox TV added:
Five hosts for the price of one — score! Seriously, we’re all looking for younger adults and this program delivered big time.
