[RECAP/VIDEOS] LIT! 2017 BET AWARDS!

BRUNO MARS 2017 BET AWARDS

The 2017 BET Awards have come and gone and the night was beyond lit!

We got to see performances by some of music’s biggest stars and lots of laughs from the always hilarious comedienne, Leslie Jones. The night began with an electrifying performance by Bruno Mars  and later features shows from French Montana, Swae Lee, Post Malone of The Migos, Trey Songz, Mary J Blige, A$AP Rocky, Chris Brown, Xscape, Big Sean, Future,  Kendrick Lamar, Tamar Braxton, and DJ Khalid.

TAMAR BRAXTON PERFORMANCE 2017 BET AWARDS

Naturally, every awards show has its highs and lows and thankfully The 2017 BET Awards had more highs! As aforementioned there were a lot of performances but those that stood out the most were definitely Bruno Mars’, Tamar Braxton’s, Xscape’s, and of course the performance from the cast of the New Edition biopic. Bruno always delivers a great show, his medley of songs, Tamar broke it down on stage so well some of us thought she was lip syncing, and Xscape’s reunion was EVERYTHING! We are definitely glad to see the ladies back together. They all look amazing, but Tiny’s post-breakup/pre-divorce body is bangin’! New Edition was presented with the Lifetime Achievement Award and it was nothing short of amazing. We always love to hear the guys’ hits and are amazed after all these years they can still get down!

“Well, What Are You Doing About That?” Halle Berry (@halleberry) Says She’s Tired of People Complaining About “#BlackLivesMatter!

Face it people, Black Lives Matter is not going anywhere; especially when men like Philando Castile are being gunned down by policemen on Facebook Live. We are not for here for the complaints against Black Lives Matter or the movement and apparently neither is one Hollywood actress.

Halle Berry says she is tired of hearing people complain about Black Lives Matter and is asking, “Well, What Are You Doing About That?”

he Oscar-winning actress said, “In my world, I get so tired of people complaining about, ‘Oh black lives matter,’ and they pontificate and pontificate about it, and I say, ‘Well, what are you doing about that? It may not seem significant to you, but that’s how we start. Have you called your local politicians, have you written a letter?’”

Appearing at the Cannes Lions Girls’ Lounge in conversation with founder Shelley Zalis, Berry continued, “When they say they’ve done nothing, I say, ‘Well, don’t talk to me … because you are part of the problem, because you are sitting here spewing negativity and complaining.’”

She added, “I don’t have time for people who talk the talk but don’t walk the walk.”

Berry has been taking meetings at Cannes Lions with top tech firms and marketers as she prepares to relaunch her website and social forum titled Hallewood.

The actress was spotted meeting with Snapchat executives Wednesday to discuss Hallewood, which launches next month, and on which she plans to post stories and videos, connect directly with her fans, and start a discussion on a wide variety of topics.

We agree with Halle one hundred and ten percent! If you are tired of hearing and seeing social injustices do something to end the issue. It is so easy to sit back and complain instead of actually giving a damn and putting in the work to bring about positive change. Humanity we have got to do better–MUCH BETTER!

Milan Christopher nude paper magazine

Is it us or does Paper Magazine attempt to break the internet at least once a year? As you already know the magazine has a history of highly scandalous and risque history of nude shoots with a few of the planet’s hottest celebrities. In fact it was not too long ago when Kim Kardashian received much notoriety (a little more than her usual share) thanks to a Paper Magazine shoot where she was literally ass out!

Well now it is Love & Hip-Hop Hollywood star, Milan Christopher’s turn as he poses not only nude, but FULL FRONTAL for Paper Magazine!

Milan Christopher nude

Seeing Milan Christopher naked in front of a camera is nothing new. In fact, the most we have ever seen him clothed is during his sole season on Love & Hip-Hop Hollywood where he and now ex-boyfriend, Siir Brock, played out the rise, revelation, and downfall of their relationship in front of millions. Fast forward to today and Milan is back in action–and still single–giving “The Kidz” more life than oxygen itself!

Queen Sugar is back for a second season and we could not be happier! Yep, that means more drama from The Bordelon Siblings; our favorite of which is Nova, who just so happens to be played by actress, Rutina Wesley. Rutina has only been in the game for a little over a decade now, but has a knack for landing major roles on popular series like True Blood, Arrow, and as aforementioned Queen Sugar. 

Besides her amazing acting skills we truly see Rutina Wesley is a beautiful, statuesque woman, who makes us gaga whenever she walks on screen that is why she is this week’s Celebrity Crush!

Rutina first came on our radar in the dance film, How She Move, but stole our hearts as “Tara” in her hilarious first scene of HBO’s True Blood check it out below:

#CelebrityCrush- Younes Bendjima (@younesbendjima)

Celebrity romances come a dime a dozen and for some Hollywood hobnobbers, the constant change in significant others is more so like a sport rather than an emotional bond. In case you missed it, one of our favorite Kardashian sisters Kourtney has been living life in the spotlight lately – showcasing her happiness and her new boy toy. That’s right, boy toy, as in not going back to her long-term boyfriend and the father of her three children Scott “Lord” Disick. And while I love Scott’s bluntness at times, I’m happy Kourt is venturing back into the dating game.

Since today is Monday, I’m blessing you all with a new face to call #Bae, Kourtney’s new boo Younes Bendjima is our #CelebrityCrush for today.

Boxer Younes Bendjima

Younes Bendjima was born in Algeria in 1993 and worked in his father’s restaurant before training as a boxer. Aside from being a former boxer, Younes is also signed to Next Model Management. He has strolled the catwalk for Givenchy as well as modelling for Hermes, Calvin Klein, Burberry and Ralph Lauren. Both Kourtney and Younes are secretive when it comes to their personal lives but word around town is the two began dating late last year, a week after the boxer/model broke up with his British model girlfriend Jordan Dunn.

#CelebrityCrush- Tia Mowry-Hardrict (@TiaMowry)

tia mowry-hardrict

There are only a handful of celebrities we can honestly say we watched grow up on television, and even less than that when it comes to how many of them have transitioned to become successful adult stars.

Well whether this vixen is working some twin magic with her sister, Tamera Mowry-Housely, delivering drama as Melanie Barnett-Davis, or cooking up some amazing treats on her cooking show, Tia Mowry-Hardrict is the girl of our dreams!

This woman is prettier than a magnolia in full bloom in May and hotter than Atlanta pavement on a summer day! That’s why she is this week’s Celebrity Crush!

Tamera Mowry, Tim Reid, Jackee Harry and Tia Mowry star in Sister, Sister.

Tamera Mowry, Tim Reid, Jackee Harry and Tia Mowry star in Sister, Sister.

Tia won our hearts back in the nineties when she was “Tia Landry” on Sister, Sister. The girl started off cute as a button then when puberty hit–and she started dating RonReaco Lee on the show–she became a full fledged woman. We are talking curves, eyes, smile, hips, and a walk that would make Los Angeles traffic halt in wonder (Have you seen her on the opening of The Game). When she later starred as Melanie Barnett-Davis on The Game, we were impressed with how seamlessly she transitioned from cute girl next door, to an amazingly capable and powerful actress who could carry a show. We definitely hated to see her leave the series, (Maybe she had the same issues with BET that Pooch Hall did) but that has not stopped her getting her own reality show and later cooking show. Tia is now the wife of actor Corey Hardrict, a mother, and still acting–and did we mention there is a Sister, Sister reboot in the works? Can you say “twinning?”

We do not know what is in store for Tia Mowry-Hardrict, but you can bet we will be front row and center to whatever amazing role, show, or venture she has going on. Tia, we love you baby!

#CelebrityCrush- Princeton Perez (@theoneprinceton)

Good Morning lovelies and Happy Monday!!! Per usual, it’s HeyMikeyATL’s #BaeDay and the celeb we’re crushing on today is definitely worth the mention.

From boy band to standing on his own two feet, Jason “Princeton” Perez, better known simply by the name Princeton (of Mindless Behavior) is our #CelebrityCrush for today.

Princeton Perez

At ten years old, Princeton was already building up his brand and career. In 2006, Princeton was cast in two Gym Class Heroes music videos. “Shoot Down the Stars” and “Cupid’s Chokehold”. “Shoot Down the Stars” followed him as a younger version of Travie Mccoy being bullied by other students. The video ends in various children, including Princeton, dancing in a school talent show and on the school’s playground. “Cupid’s Chokehold” had Princeton portraying a young Cupid who shoots Travie with a bow and arrow, causing Travie to express his love for various women in the video. At the age of 11, Princeton appeared in commercials for major brands like Sketchers, McDonald’s and Nike – all of which helped launch his career in entertainment.

Boy band Mindless Behavior was created by legendary music producers Keisha Gamble, Walter Millsap (who has previously worked with Beyonce and Timbaland) and Vincent Herbert ( who has worked with Lady Gaga, Toni Braxton and Tamar Braxton, the latter of whom is his wife). Mindless Behavior toured with the Backstreet Boys, Justin Bieber, and Jason Derulo and was the sole opening act for Janet Jackson’s 2011 tour. Mindless Behavior also headlined the first BET Closer to My Dreams Tour alongside Diggy Simmons, Lil Twist, and Tyga. By 2012 they were embarking on their own 25-city tour and taking the world by storm. The group’s most popular singles were “Mrs. Right” and “My Girl”.
