Titans will clash and the Earth will shake when Batman and Superman face off in 2016’s “Batman Vs. Superman: Dawn Of Justice (BVSDJ)!” Naturally, we expected to see lots of scenes with The Dark Knight and Man Of Steel fighting, but fans everywhere were thrilled to learn a few other superheroes would be making appearances in the film. Wonder Woman, Aquaman, and Nightwing are confirmed to appear; but of these three heroes only Wonder Woman has garnered a great deal of controversy. Many fans did/do not feel Gal Gadot has the powerful, Amazonian physique as Wonder Woman and there was greater controversy surrounding her costume. Would she be portrayed realistically in armor and covered, or would she be in her traditionally skimpy attire. It has taken an eternity to get any visuals from “Batman Vs. Superman: Dawn Of Justice!” Luckily, in honor of Comic-Con, Warner Bros. studios has finally released images of Gal Gadot as “Wonder Woman,” fully costumed!
Hit R & B singer, August Alsina, has had one helluva a year when it comes to bad press. First he is beefing with Trey Songz, then he gets Keshia Chante together on “106th & Park,” then just a few weeks ago he stopped his concert to find a hat someone in the audience had taken from him. Yeah, Mr. Alsina is going to have to work on his public relations ASAP. However, that may have to take a backseat to this latest accusation brought against him from a fan he allegedly hooked up with. He met the girl in Virginia after one of his shows after she paid for her own plane ticket to come and see him. He was “nice enough” to give her some backstage passes and tickets to his show, but when they got to the hotel room things got a lot more interesting.

Are the rumors really true? Are the music industry’s premiere power couple calling it quits? That seems to be the word on the street as reports are coming in that Beyoncé and Jay-Z are splitting up after the end of their hit “On The Run” Tour! According to The New York Post:
While Jay Z seemingly is the one most at fault, he’s also the one doing all in his power to keep the couple together, even hiring marriage counselors who are believed to be traveling with the super duo on their tour, the source said. “They are trying to figure out a way to split without divorcing …This is a huge concert tour and they’ve already gotten most of the money from the promoters up front,” the source said. Despite the tens of millions the couple will pocket from the current tour, this will certainly be their last and the end of the tour could officially spell the end of the marriage, the source said. “There are no rings, if you haven’t noticed,” the source said, admitting that he thought things would get better after the birth of the couple’s daughter, Blue Ivy Carter. “For just a split moment, things got real for them and she was even talking about adding to the family,” the source said. “But, after a while, Jay was out doing Jay and Bey was out doing Bey. They made the classic mistake of thinking a child would change everything and help to rekindle the initial fire, and it didn’t.”
This certainly is not the first time rumors of a split between the two megastars has come to the surface. I guess this is what happens when you live so privately and try to keep up such a flawless front. Until someone files papers in a court of law it is best we treat this as a rumor too. I personally hope it will NEVER be so. Jay-Z and Beyoncé are not just a powerful couple, they are artists beyond compare!
Nothing about the Marvel Universe has ever been normal. There super villains, superheroes, mutants, alien overlords, would-be robotic world conquerers, and a whole other cadre of comic cliches that would crack your brain in fours. Through it all there has been one truly consistent and powerful team of superheroes who band together to take on threats no single hero can face alone–The Avengers! In 2012, millions of people worldwide were introduced to this mighty team in cinematic form. Iron Man, Thor, Hulk, and Captain America became household names rivaling the likes of Wolverine, Spider-Man, Batman, and Superman. Now, with the success of the franchise the comics are churning out even more interesting stories with plot twists that defy the laws of conventionality. Recently, Marvel Comics once again made headlines in Time Magazine and on “The View” when they announced a major shake up with two core Avengers. The new Captain America is African-American and Thor is now a woman!
VH-1’s “Love & Hip-Hip Atlanta” has been the most ratchet show to date this summer. With so many issues of infidelity, rivalry, and girl sharing there was bound to be some blood when all the cast members returned to tape the reunion special. Multiple fights broke out the first day of filming after Benzino made a joke about his former friends, Stevie J and Joseline, doing drugs.
According to sources: “We’re told Stevie jumped up to get in Benzino’s grill, but security guards stopped him. That’s when –according to witnesses — Stevie’s girl Joseline sneak attacked Althea. After that, all hell broke loose — weaves were torn out in the chaos — and every time security broke up one fight … a different one would spark up between other cast members. We’re told most of the fighting was between the women — although at least one male security guard took a shot to the face … from one of the chicks. From what we can tell the only smart decision all night was someone calling 911. Cops and paramedics responded — at least three people got treatment. “
It’s been over eleven years now since the hit show “Moesha” left airwaves. For six seasons this family comedy/drama gave an urban and female perspective on coming of age. However, fans everywhere were shocked when the sixth season finale also became its series finale. Then, adding insult to injury, fans were left on multiple cliffhangers. Miles had been kidnapped by a rival gang Dorian was beefing with, a positive pregnancy test was found in Moesha’s room, and we never found out exactly what happened between she and Hakeem!
Egregiously, no one, not even the stars of the show ever came forward to say what exactly went wrong behind the scenes to cancel the series. Earlier this week, on “Just Keke,” Brandy, broke her silence and revealed she never understood why “Moesha” was cancelled the way it was. To her, and the rest of her cast mates, the sixth season finale was meant to be that–a season finale! Meaning there was suppose to be a seventh, and most likely final season of the show with a proper series finale. She apologized to fans: “I don’t know what happened, and I feel so bad because, you know, so many of the fans, they’re mad about that,” Brandy continued. “That’s not the way you end a show that’s been on for six years. So, I’m sorry, y’all.”
Tyler Perry knew he had a hit when “The Haves and The Have Nots,” (THAHN) debuted on OWN in 2013. This phenomenal show has garnered record setting ratings, been the subject of much “tea,” and introduced a diverse and stellar cast of actors to the world at large. Each of the cast members portray different, yet realistic characters that are so “in your face,” that you cannot help but love them. However, when it comes to pain and power, one character in particular comes to the forefront–Katheryn Cryer. On THAHN, she is the powerful wife of Jim Cryer, mother to Wyatt and Amanda, and worth fifty million dollars. She loves her family, but keeps them at a distance, because she knows she cannot truly trust any of them. Her poised and cold demeanor, however, hides a woman in pain who is fighting to keep her head above water. With all these bold and powerful attributes, you just know the real woman portraying her has to be equally as outstanding. You would be right! Renee Lawless is a force to be reckoned with. From the stage to Silver Screen, she has sung, acted, and won her way into our hearts.
Say it ain’t so! But it yes it is true. Reality television star, father, and husband of Phaedra Parks; Apollo Nida, has been sentenced to eight years in prison for bank fraud and identity theft! The judgement was handed down today in a Georgia court. Apollo has not been immediately arrested, but is expected to voluntarily turn himself in at a later date.
TMZ reported: “The judge who sentenced him today in a Georgia court said Nida did indeed cooperate with federal investigators by spilling criminal secrets … and that’s why he got leniency. Nida could have been sentenced to 30 years, so eight years is a big victory.”
ESPN The Magazine pushes the envelope once again with another nude cover in its latest Body Issue for 2014. This time former Detroit Tiger, Prince Fielder is posing for the cover. No big deal, right? Wrong! This time the magazine is pushing the envelope by showcasing his thicker body type. As you recall they male cover models for the publication are usually lean and muscular or buff with Olympian characteristics. Fielder breaks that mold with his stocky body type. Thus far, the cover has been met with mixed reviews from fans. On ESPN’s Facebook page some posted comments like, “Nice build on a bigger guy,” or “He definitely didn’t embarass the Tigers…” However, others were blunt or mean, “FAT!” and “Messy! Put your clothes back on!”
