[VIDEO] Truly Get To Know More “About Him!” Check Out Kontrol Magazine’s (@kontrolmag) Exclusive w/ Gary Lavard (@GaryLavard)!

gary lavard vincent hey mikey atl about him

If you have been watching Signal 23 TV or YouTube, then you know Summer 2016 has been hot–and we aren’t talking about actual heat. There is a new web series on the block, About Him, that captivates the coming of age of a young, Black gay man, Damien (Brandon Karson), on the cusp of adulthood and exploring his sexuality during his final summer before college. Damien is fiercely in love with his older brother’s best friend, Vincent (Gary Lava, an athlete, ladies’ man, and bisexual who also finds Damien attractive. Their flirtation is tantalizing, their hook ups are hot, and its loves us all wanting to know more “about them!”

Recently, Gary Lavard, also known as “Vincent” sat down for an exclusive interview with Kontrol Magazine. There he not only discussed the show, how he perceives Vincent, and his role, but his background as a true actor, learning his craft. Check out an excerpt below:

gary lavard hey mikey atl about him

With the height and stature of a football player, the last words you’d expect to hear from Gary Lavard are shy, laidback or mildly timid. Or, that he never really played sports. I could hardly believe it myself, but those are words he would use to describe himself, at least before joining the cast of About Him.

Like many, I was introduced to him as Vincent, this disarming, self assured, sex fueled character he plays on the web series that chronicles the coming of age story of a young man, Black, trying to discover himself and his sexuality with little help from his father or brother, all set to the backdrop of the 90’s.

Vincent is the guy that I feel like most gay people would try to get with. He’s masculine, he’s confused, and he is all those things I feel a guy is at that point, you know? Trying to find yourself. I really signed on to do that story because I felt that for one it’s a story that’s kind of swept under the rug on mainstream TV. My goal as an actor, I want to do things that are complex and that no one is doing and I felt like it was a good thing and I could impact the LGBT community and so far I’ve gotten a great response.

Kiersey Clemons (@KierseyClemons) Lands Role of Iris West in Upcoming “Flash” Movie!

kiersey clemons hey mikey atl

Kiersey Clemons has landed a new role starting opposite Ezra Miller in “The Flash” movie.

Variety first reported earlier this month that she was the top choice for the female lead in the Warner Bros. film. Sources have confirmed that Clemons is set to play Iris West, the tough-as-nails journalist and love interest/friend of Barry Allen, the Flash’s alter ego.

Clemons’ rise to stardom has inclined since her breakout performance in “Dope.” She landed a role as one of Chloe Moretz’s sorority sisters in “Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising,” as well as one of the leads in Sony’s remake of “Flatliners.”

Clemons is reuniting with director Rick Famuyiwa for this film. They previously worked together on Dope. Before Famuyiwa was reassigned to the project, Seth Grahame-Smith was hired to be the writer and director but severed ties with Warner Bros. over creative differences. Regardless, Grahame-Smith’s most recent draft, based on a treatment by “The LEGO Movie’s” Phil Lord and Chris Miller, will be used. Despite the hurdles of replacing the director, the movie appears to be able to meet its planned start date. Production is expected to commence sometime this year.

 

Congratulations Kiersey! We can’t wait to see your Black Girl Magic unfold in your upcoming role.

[VIDEO] Vote for Michelle! Michelle Obama (@FLOTUS) Steals The Show At The Democratic National Convention!

michelle-obama_33

The Democratic National Convention kicked off last night at the Pennsylvania Convention Center with speakers reassuring Americans that the country is not in as much trouble and danger as Donald Trump and some fellow Republicans would have one to believe during the Republican National Convention. New Jersey Senator Cory Booker also assured, “Our best days are ahead of us.”

Arguably, the most important moment of the night came when First Lady Michelle Obama took the stage to deliver her highly-anticipated speech. She is known for her keen fashion sense and she did not disappoint. The first lady graced the crowd in a cap-sleeve, flowing Christian Siriano blue dress with silver earrings and shoes. The lackluster crowd’s energy immediately picked up once she walked on stage.

#Scandalous! Ed Hartwell (@edhartwell1) Files for Divorce from Keshia Knight Pulliam (@peachespulliam) AND Demands Paternity Test!

010216-celebs-keshia-knight-pulliam-ed-hartwell

Just when you thought Kim Kardashian’s fly by marriage to Chris Humphries was quick, Ed Hartwell and Keshia Knight Pulliam beat them to the divorce finish line! Yep, ex-NFL player and The Cosby Show’s former “Rudy Huxtable” are OVER and DONE! This all comes as a shocker. Especially, when just a few days ago Keshia was posting pictures of her growing baby bump and announcing to the world the couple is having a little girl. Well it looks like, as the kidz say, Keshia will be “flying solo dolo” as a single parent now.

Even more scandalous than their pending divorce is the fact that Ed is demanding a paternity test for the baby!

via The YBF:

We’ve learned that former NFL linebacker Ed Hartwell filed divorce papers in a Fulton County, Georgia courthouse this morning.  He filed the divorce complaint under Edgerton Hartwell II and cited irreconcilable differences.  The decision to split comes less than eight months after his and wife Keshia Knight Pulliam’s surprise New Year’s Eve wedding.

We’re told Keshia is not yet aware that he has filed for divorce.  She also has no idea Ed simply wants out of the marriage and to remain single.

The two having a few marital issues did not come as much of a surprise to those who are VERY close to the couple.  Sources tell us they noticed constant bickering going on. We’re told an all out divorce, though, was unexpected. 

They have done a good job not to comment publicly on any problems.

At least one of the issues stems from Ed feeling like Keshia acts in a “spoiled” way, something he knew before he married her after four months of dating.  Apparently, he has a history of acting impulsively, i.e. that surprise wedding after just a few months of dating.

They did not spend his birthday together on May 7th.

Keshia recently revealed she’s pregnant with her and Ed’s first child, and it’s a girl.  She is due January 2017.

Interestingly, Ed tells TheYBF.com via his rep, “Right now, the only thing I want is a paternity test for the baby.”

All we can say is that this is all crazy! Ed went thru a nasty divorce a few years back with Hollywood Divas’ Lisa Wu-Hartwell. Love B. Scott did some digging of their own and came up with some “receipts” supporting YBF’s story. See it by clicking here! This is only going to get uglier—we wish them both the best!

Hip-Hop music producer Dr. Dre was involved in an alleged road rage incident in front of his Malibu home. According to TMZ, an unidentified motorist pulled in front of the music mogul’s home and blocked his driveway. When Dr. Dre arrived, he asked the motorist to move away from his driveway so he could get in it. The motorist complied with Dre’s request but decided to curse him out while doing so.

According to reports, Dre did not say anything to the outraged motorist; instead, he pulled out his cell phone to document the altercation. As soon as Dr. Dre pulled out his phone, the motorist allegedly yells out, “ Here we go again, another black guy with a gun.”
