They say ask and you shall receive.
All year, Brandy has been very vocal about wanting a ring from her music executive boo Ryan Press and it looks as though she finally received one. According to numerous reports, Ryan proposed to Bran over the holidays and she couldn’t be happier. A source told US Weekly,“They are thrilled and happy and Brandy feels this is so right.”
Earlier this year, she told Ebony Magazine:
I wish we were engaged. He’s taking a little long on the ring side of things, but I’m patient.
Patience is definitely a virtue. The couple was spotted in Hawaii over the last few days and surprisingly, Brandy was hiding her new ring as she got snapped by the paparazzi.
I would be flaunting that bish! Congrats!
Former Miss USA Kenya Moore may be labeled as bat sh-t crazy (or at least a good actress) after her stint on the newest season of the Real Housewives of Atlanta, but she definitely can take a mean pic.
Glamming it up in a zebra print dress with a pair of boxing gloves located at her feet, Kenya shows off her modeling abilities in a new photo shoot for Krave Magazine. In the spread, shot by photographer James Anthony, she also shows those half-naked boys in the locker room who’s boss.
She may be stirring up some trouble on RHOA but she looks nice with her “Gone With The Wind” fabulous self.
Kanye has given us quite a few “What is he wearing moments?” during the span of his career, but last night he took things to all new heights at Revel in Atlantic City. While performing at the first of three pre-New Years Eve shows, he stepped out on stage dressed in all white with a feathered mask. Later in the show, he turned it up a few more notches after he emerged wearing a Maison Martin Margiela Haute Couture Diamond mask.
I may be in the minority, but I can appreciate the imagery, no matter how insane it looks. Michael Jackson became known as one of the greatest entertainers because his stage shows –including the outfits and choreography– were visually stimulating. The same goes for Andre 3000 during his The Love Below era. Unfortunately, nowadays, you aren’t gonna get much bang for your buck visually out of a Hip Hop show. There’s normally the artist, his DJ, his hypeman (if he has one) and maybe a few guest appearances but overall, visually, it’s hardly ever memorable or iconic. People are afraid to try new things because most would rather be put in a box than criticized for their creativity.
Below there is an 8-minute clip of the beginning of the show. In the footage, Kanye utilized a panoramic screen to make it appear as though it was snowing inside the building. You can actually hear someone say, “What the f-ck” [which is pretty funny] as he emerges on stage in the feathered mask.
The year is quickly coming to a close and with a New Year will come new trends.
We decided to look back on some of the top hair trends among our favorite celeb chicks in 2012 and the high bun was undisputedly the most popular hair style this year. Women love buns because it’s a quick and easy hairstyle to pull together, and it also allows them to show off their beautiful facial features.
It can be worn with or without a bang and still look amazing with any outfit. The look is so versatile that it can be worn anywhere from a casual outing to a formal red carpet event.
She took center stage recently during a taping of A Fox & Friends Christmas Special to perform a very sweet rendition of “The Christmas Song.” Ashanti may not be categorized as a powerhouse vocalist but her performance was definitely music to the ears and soothing to the soul.
She looked and sounded beautiful!
Whether we like it or not, Ratchet TV is here to stay!
With the success of shows like Love & Hip Hop Atlanta, which brought killer ratings to VH1 while sparking one of the most engaging discussions of any show on air via Twitter each and every week, networks are led to believe that the African American audience loves the portrayal of women fighting, men fathering multiple kids out of wedlock and openly dating multiple women, and it is their new cash cow. Now, Oxygen (the network Oprah originally co-founded) wants in.
They’ve ordered up a new series titled All My Babies’ Mamas which features Atlanta rapper Shawty Lo and wait for it…. all 10 of his baby mamas. According to Shadow and Act, the one hour weekly special will feature Shawty Lo showing off his huge 10-bedroom, eight-bathroom Georgia home while balancing what’s left of his career, 10 baby mamas and 11 kids.
Oh, you are really not ready for this foolery.
As this year comes to an end, and we welcome in the New Year, most of us have listed a fitness and nutritional plan as one of our top resolutions for 2013.
Comedian/actress Mo’Nique began a serious workout journey earlier this year and it is commendable that she has stayed dedicated to her health and fitness plan throughout the year when most eventually give up. Ever since the Mo’Nique Show was put on indefinite hiatus by BET, Mo has spent her time sharing her fitness journey via Twitter as well as motivating her followers to stay fit. She trains daily to build balance and stamina so that she can stand in pumps for long periods during her stage shows all while working towards being a good example to her kids when it comes to living a long healthy life.
Fans of Mo’Nique will be happy to hear that she has plans for a comedy tour which will begin in January at the Atlanta Civic Center. In the meantime, she has been spending time with her kids, which was hard for her to do when she was filming “Precious” and a daily late night talk show at the same time. She recently told Essence:
I have truly been enjoying life and that’s what’s going on. It’s been enjoyable to have a period where I can watch my babies go off to school, make the field trips and that’s priceless. While I’m in the moment I will stay in it.
Catch a few of my favorite pics and quotes from Mo’Nique throughout her journey below! Let’s get motivated!
Beyonce on Instagram–Do you love it or hate it?
We can all admit it is a little weird seeing one of the most private celebs of this time posing it up in high fashion gear and silly pics but we wanted more of Beyonce, and we are definitely getting it. Hopefully, she’ll get the hang of things and spruce up her galleries with teaser shots from videos, behind the scenes of her photo shoots and some hints of who she’s been hitting the studio with. We want in.
Yesterday, she hit up Instagram and posted a series of shots while showing love to the late icon Michael Jackson. It would not be a huge surprise if she’s been spending her holidays studying the tapes of his performances so that she can bring us one of the biggest, hottest Super Bowl shows since MJ’s 1993 half-time show.
Back in June, The Dream declared her the best performer since Michael Jackson after attending her show at Revel:
Beyonce Knowles May very well be the Baddest MFkr on stage Live Since MJ! Period! Point Blank.
