Last night the highly anticipated–and infamous–Met Gala went down with a bang! We saw more celebrities and high fashion than we could handle. Beyonce, Katy Perry, Claire Dane, Solange, Kerry Washington, Idris Elba, Lady Gaga, and so many more slayed the Red Carpet repeatedly! Although it is agreed Clair Dane’s glowing gown stole the show, it is Kanye West’s new look–or eyes–that have become the talk of the town.
“Who Is Becky?” It has been over a week since Beyonce debuted her new album, Lemonade; and all anyone can think of is the identity of Jay-Z’s alleged mistress. Some have pointed to singers Rihanna and Rita Ora, but most signs point to fashion designer and Damon Dash’s ex, Rachel Roy. Although Rachel has come forward to say she is not Becky, she only brought all of this on herself when, as you may recall, she alluded to being the other woman. Well according to Love B. Scott and Radar Online, Bey has been calling Rachel, Becky, for years now, not wanting to ever say her name.

“‘Becky’ has actually been a nickname that Beyonce has called Rachel for years,” a source close to the Lemonade singer told Radar. “It isn’t just a generic name for a girl.”
The source also told Radar that Beyonce uses the “Becky” nickname “so she never has to say Rachel’s name.”
When it comes to Living Legends the herd seems to have thinned out considerably. Michael Jackson, Whitney Houston, Natalie Cole, and as of last week, Prince. You would think the Universe would give us a break and allow us to recover from so many untimely demises. However, it looks like rock legend, Little Richard, is not doing too well. He is allegedly in serious condition, according to Media Takeout.
via Media Takeout:
MediaTakeOut.com learned that people close to legendary rocker Little Richard, including his close friend Bootsie Collins, are praying at this hour. According to reports, Little Richard is in VERY SERIOUS condition.
There have long been rumors that Little Richard suffered from deteriorated health due to some mystery condition.
While it’s not clear WHAT the cause of Little Richard’s health crisis – it is very SERIOUS. We pray that Little Richard can make it through this.
It is true enough that Media Takeout is not always the most reliable source for news; and we are hoping their sources are wrong in this issue. We definitely love Little Richard, after all a few of the legends that have already passed, like Michael Jackson and Prince walked the celebrated road he originally paved. Let’s all send prayers up for him whether he sick or not!
When did the name Columbus Short become synonymous with cheater, domestic violence, and now substance abuse? The mighty have truly fallen when it comes to this once respected and talented actor. Nowadays, Columbus seems to be doing nothing but bad and his latest failed drug test just might land him a lengthy prison sentence! Earlier today, Short tested positive for marijuana and cocaine while on probation.
via Love B. Scott & Page Six:
Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Leslie E. Brown received details about the failed drug tests Thursday and ordered the actor to appear at a hearing May 9 to address them. Court officials were unable to provide a copy of Short’s probation report on Tuesday.
Short pleaded no contest to felony assault in September and was sentenced to three years of supervised probation, two months of community labor and anger management counseling. He was charged after he delivered a running punch during a fight at a family gathering in March 2014. The blow knocked a man unconscious, gave him a concussion and fractured his eye socket.
The actor has completed anger management counseling, but has not yet completed the community labor terms of his sentence.
Short’s attorney Ludlow B. Creary II said the actor has previously publicly addressed his drug use and no further comment on it was necessary. Short told Access Hollywood in 2014 thathis cocaine use and drinking had caused many of the problems that led to his departure from “Scandal.”
Creary said he hopes Short will “complete his probation, and get on with [his] career.” He added that he believed Short’s legal problems are overblown.
“It’s our belief that Mr. Short is going to continue to make progress,” Creary said.
Get it together Columbus, you’re ruining not only your career, but your life. Let’s keep him in our prayers everyone!
We all know (or should know) reality television is not truly real. Most shows take months worth of footage and edit it down to thirteen 45 minute long episodes. All we truly get to see are the highlights of the season seamlessly connected through drama, strife, and shenanigans. Apparently, one of the biggest shenanigans on the latest season of Love & Hip-Hop Atlanta involves Karlie Redd’s engagement to R&B singer, Lyfe Jennings.
Well social media has tipped us off to the falseness of this story line. Not only are Karlie and Lyfe not engaged, but he is married to another woman as of last year! Her name is Gwendolyn, and she is stunning! Lyfe is getting a check to keep everything on the hush, but his his true bride has been very open with their relationship, posting a number of pictures on her instagram of them together and having the account name of @officialmrsjennings.
Being that the season has already been filmed maybe this fraud behavior or “mix up” will be addressed on the reunion special or next season. Who knows? All we know is it’s another season and Karlie Redd is caught up in another messy relationship! We’ll keep you posted as this story unfolds! Just remember you heard it here first!
One of California’s biggest and most diverse festivals is The Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival. While this weekend was the last weekend of the fest headlining artist, Ice Cube, decided to bring out the NWA crew as surprise guests to perform some of their greatest hits. NWA members, Dr.Dre, MC Ren and Dj Yella all joined together to perform “straight outta compton” and “f*ck the police.” The crew also paid homage by honoring their member Eazy E, who passed away, by allowing his son Lil Eazy E to take the stage in his place. Dr. Dre had a solo performance as well. Dre treated the crowd with his hits “California Love” and “Still D.R.E.”
Not only did NWA hit the stage with Ice Cube, but one of the greatest rappers of this generation, Kendrick Lamar, hit the stage with the crew as well. A few weeks ago Compton emcee, Kendrick, inducted NWA into the Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame and this weekend he joined them onstage to bless the crowd with his single “Alright,” which is one of my personal favorites. Coachella was filled with some of California natives finest and I can’t wait to see what they have in store for next year.
Below you can check out some photos from the performances.
