Kim Kardashian made it safely back to her hubby in NYC this morning after Kanye West had to abruptly end his set at the Meadows Music Festival in New York last night (Sunday) due to a ‘family emergency’.

According to ABCNews, $10 million worth of jewelry was reportedly stolen from the KUWTK reality star, while remaining in Paris for their celebrated fashion week.

A spokesperson for Kim Kardashian said:

Two armed masked men dressed as police officers were behind the hold up. She is badly shaken but physically unharmed.

Apparently the luxury hotel she was robbed in, Hotel de Pourtales, is estimated at about $16,900 a night and it is where Kimye stayed before their wedding. See photos in the gallery below.

Frank Ocean Ends Silence With New Albums ‘Blond’ And ‘Endless’

frankocean.0.0

On Saturday August 20th Christmas came early when the world was found drooling over their iphones and androids due to the long and highly anticipated sophomore album. As a result of the torture Ocean put us through, crazed fans lost their sanity when Frank Ocean blessed the hip hop spectrum with his visual album titled “Endless”, music video to intro “Nikes”, and surprised pop up shops located throughout New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, and London. Ocean’s team handed out free copies of his initial title LP, Boys Don’t Cry. The exclusive magazine also included the 17 track LP Blond with features from Kanye West, Beyonce, the late David Bowie, Kendrick Lamar, and Andre 3000. This elaborate magazine was far from disappointing; its size could be compared to a Vogue magazine which contained essays, poetry, and photos by many high ranked artists in the industry such as Yeezy himself.  

The Grammy award winning artist disappeared from the face of the Earth. After four years of speculation to whether Ocean could ever redeem himself has truly come into fruition.

See more below.

I had the time of my life making all of this. Thank you all. Especially those of you who never let me forget that I had to finish. Which is basically everyone of yall.

He’s definitely not lying about that part, fans have been pouring their outrage and frustration out on Twitter and Instagram for the past year. Although Apple Music has categorized Blond under the pop genre, his vocal tracks, feeds off of blues, soul, all while remaining centralized to R&B. Ocean expresses himself as a male whom isn’t afraid to put away his masculine ego and open up to his vulnerabilities, especially to “Ivy” singing:

I thought that I was dreaming when you said you love me.

I’m pretty sure every man and woman can correlate to that one past heartless lover. With his new album and soulful approach can Frank Ocean earn Best R&B album of the year, or is it too early?

Fans were gazed by Drake and Rihanna’s flirty performances to Work, as well as Too Good, and was later able to turn up to the trap lord Future. And just when you thought this concert couldn’t possibly get any more lit, Kanye being his godly self delivered an important message before his performance. While the crowd was amazed at Yeezy standing on stage, he stated that he and Drake are coming together for a collaborative album.

Kanye blurted out,

Toronto, I got one question for you, Is you all ready for this album, I’m not talking about Pablo.

Later Drake came out on stage to clear up any confusion by saying,

What my brother was asking before was, are you ready if we make an album

And you can imagine how the crowd lost their minds from there. Take a look below.

With Drake and Future’s collaborative mix tape What A Time to Be Alive, making headlines within a few hours of its release there’s no telling what these two may have up their sleeves.

The concert expectedly sold out back to back within the next two nights, showing how much Toronto is in support of Drizzy. In addition to this dope event, Drake made the crowd go insane with his beaming lights, and colorful balls dropping from the ceiling rapping hit singles such as, Started From The Bottom, to HotLine Bling with the crowd echoing every single word.

Down the road. Obviously. I love kids, she does too. Ya’ know God willing. As long as they’re healthy, that’s what we pray for. Whether it’s a boy or girl who knows but we have some time for that. She’s making her music right now and I’m playing sports and hosting shows.

mgid-ao-image-mtv

Teyana Taylor did not come to play with us last night!

The 25 year old slayed her Lil’ Kim tribute last night at the Hip Hop Honors. At the beginning of the performance Lil Mama and Dej Loaf did a great job at impersonating The Queen B in some of her most memorable wigs and outfits but in the end it was Teyana who ultimately stole the show.

To make the performance even more appealing, Teyana was accompanied by Bad Boy Records very own and some of Kim’s former label mates such as The Lox and French Montana.

When Teyana found out she was taking part in this tribute she was ecstatic about it. The singer took to her Instagram with an old video of her imitating and dancing to Mo Money Mo Problems in her old Miami condo. Under the video she wrote:

????????????????SHMOOD: when I found out that I will be doing the@lilkimthequeenbee tribute for the#VH1Honors ????????????????????????????????????????????????#LiLKimOneOfMyFavs #TakeThatTakeThat????????????????????????

And it showed. She nailed it!

Ciara Covers Essence Magazine And Shades Future On Good Morning America

CC

From getting engaged to football star Russell Wilson, to preparing to host the Billboard Music Awards, 2016 has definitely started off well for R&B sensation Ciara. Ci-Ci stunned for her first ever ESSENCE Magazine cover shoot looking like springtime in a low cut floral jumpsuit accompanied by a glowing smile.

After years of career highs and lows, the newly engaged mom and “I Bet” singer opened up about her personal life including fame, happiness, and finding love, making it clear that she couldn’t be in a happier place right now.

The issue hits newsstands April 15th, but for now check out a few highlights from the story below.

On her dream of having a family:

I’d always wanted to have my own family. And my pregnancy was planned when I was at a point in my life when I was finally ready to take on the responsibility.

On her very public break-up with then fiancé Future:

That wasn’t necessarily part of my vision. But the moment I realized I was going to be a single mother, I had to reflect and reorganize my thoughts. I decided to trust that God had a plan for me, and move forward one day at a time.

On finding new love with Seattle Seahawks, Russell Wilson:

I remember telling my friend the kind of guy I wanted: a God-fearing man with a very fun spirit who loves kids and would really, truly care for me. I was very specific because I do believe you can have it all.

In other news….

Ciara has teamed up with her former hit making partner-in-crime, Ludacris, to host the 2016 Billboard Music Awards. The two stopped by ABC’s Good Morning America to announce the nominees, but while announcing the Top Rap Artist category the singer refused to mention a certain popular rapper’s name.

Shade or nah?

In the gym or outside of the gym, this activewear can also be worn during your daily routine. With a leisure feel to it, Ivy Park will be available for purchase at IvyPark.com, TopShop.com, Nordstrom.com and Zalando.com in mid-April. Sizing suits women of all shapes seeing that the sizing of the Ivy Park leggings are sorted by the letters “I”, “V”, and “Y”. “I” is for low-rise, “V” is for mid-rise fits, and “Y” is for all high-rise leggings. If Beyonce creating workout gear isn’t enough to get a girl in the gym, then what is? I’m sure the motivation is real now when it comes to the Bey Hive.

See more below.

The two-minute promo video for Ivy Park features narration by Beyonce as she speaks on the meaning of the actual park that she has named her activewear line after.

I would wake up in the morning and my dad would come knocking on my door telling me it’s time to go running. I remember wanting to stop, but I would push myself to keep going. It taught me discipline..

Check out the promo video below.
