Famed film director and honoree John Singleton was presented with the 2016 AAFCA Legacy Award presented by Courtney B. Vance.

During his acceptance speech, John talked about how mainstream inclusion isn’t that important in the long run and how black people are winning despite exclusion. He touched on the #OscarsSoWhite controversy saying,

“We’ve been fighting for inclusion ever since the chains have been put on. Sometimes when you make such an emphasis of inclusion you lose sight of the big picture, you lose sight of what the big end game is. In terms of pop culture in this country, we’ve already won the end game. It doesn’t matter if a certain organization, whether it’s the Academy, or another organization excludes our black artists. We know that what we do no matter what is going to propagate over time. It’s going to change not only our own people but everybody else.”

We agree!

 photo CiaraR.jpg

Ciara and Russell Wilson are spreading their love all over the Big Apple. They were spotted holding hands and being cutesy last night. Before they hit the streets, Wendy Williams showed up at an event where CiCi was performing and the two ended up hugging it out….after Wendy slammed CiCi for her lawsuit against Future. More inside…

Lovebirds Ciara and Russell Wilson are in NYC giving us the feels with all their lovey dovey coupledom moments. The R&B singer and Super Bowl champ jetted from L.A. to the Big Apple (along with Baby Future) to attend a few events together. They could hardly keep their eyes and hands off of each other at a Knicks game the other night.

Last night, the YBF couple was spotted holding hands as they hit the pavement making their way to dinner. How cute are these two?

Earlier…

Strike a pose! CiCi hit the blue carpet at the Keds Centennial Celebration held at Center548 after celebrating the brand’s 100th anniversary earlier at NYSE.

 photo CiaraKedsCentennialCelebration8T6VNM37Et5l.jpg

Serving up punk rock vibe, the “I Bet” singer rocked a sexy high-slit Philipp Plein black gown, topped with a black leather jacket and, of course, a pair of black Keds sneakers. She recently teamed up with the footwear brand to release her own collection and she’s featured in their Spring ’16 ad campaign.

 photo KedsCentennialCelebration-kteFWgKjiSl.jpg

Daytime talk show host Wendy Williams was also on the scene at the event. It was interesting to see her reaction when she came face-to-face to Ciara after she roasted CiCi on the show a day earlier about her $15 million lawsuit against her former fiance Future. Here’s what she said:

Well….

 photo keds101.jpg

No, Ciara didn’t diss her on stage…

She’s remaining unbothered and hugged it out with the opinionated talk show host. Here’s the receipt:

 photo Screen Shot 2016-02-11 at 4.08.18 PM.png

That’s how you do it.

On stage, CiCi wowed the audience with her vocals. It was a more subtle performance, leaving out the high-energy dance moves she’s known for.

Derek Fisher Joins Gloria Govan, Family & Friends On Birthday Getaway After Getting Fired + “The Next: 15” Cast Hits Up ATL Screening

Posted by | Posted in Gurl Talk | Posted on 13-02-2016

 photo glod22.jpg

Derek Fisher was fired as the Knicks head coach a few days ago, but that hasn’t put a damper on things. He’s headed out on an international birthday trip with rumored fling Gloria Govan, who’s still legally married to Matt Barnes. Meanwhile, Gloria’s sister Laura Govan was was busy promoting her new show “The Next: 15” in ATL. Everything inside…..

If you thought former reality star Gloria Govan and now-former NY Knicks head coach Derek Fisher stopped messing with each other after Gloria’s ex Matt Barnes opened a can of whoop a** on Derek, guess again.

Late last night, Gloria hopped on Instagram to share a picture of herself along with her family (mom, dad & brothers) and her friends hopping on an airplane for a group getaway to celebrate her birthday. If you look at the person directly under the purple arrow, you’ll notice that it is Derek! Hey, he has plenty time on his hands now after he was fired as the head coach of the New York Knicks a few days ago.

 photo glod1tease.jpg

Once folks started pointing out Derek in the background, Gloria deleted the picture from her account.

This just continues the love triangle between Derek, Gloria and Matt. Remember when Matt DROVE 95 miles to beat Derek up after he found out his former friend/teammate and his estranged wife were getting close? In fact, REAL close. It was reported Derek had been spending time with Matt and Gloria’s twin sons.

Later, Matt came out and revealed he felt betrayed by them in an infamous New Year’s Day rant, but, Gloria and Derek don’t seem to mind. Hmph.

Matt hasn’t said anything about it yet, but we predict a rant of some sort in 5…4…3…2…

Meanwhile…

 photo JDW1.png

Gloria’s sister, former “Basketball Wives” star Laura Govan joined her "The Next: 15" castmates in Atlanta last night for a private screening of their premiere episode on TV One. She was joined by former “Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta” star Benzino, former “Basketball Wives” star Jennifer Williams, former "The Real World: Philadelphia" star Karamo Brown and former “Real Housewives of Atlanta” star Claudia Jordan.

 photo JDW2.png

We wonder if Jennifer and Claudia played nice after Jennifer read Claudia for filth on social media recently. Jennifer posted a picture of herself with the caption, "So I land in ATL and get word @claudiajordan is doing interviews saying I’m jealous of her!!! Bissshhhh where? As we see from the trailer you don’t want these problems! Keep my name out your mouth trying to get press! #BrokeBitchProblems" Bloop!

 photo JDW6.png

 photo JDW7.png

New parents Zino and his woman Althea Heart came together as a couple. They were all lovey-dovey during the screening.

"RHOA" star and singer Demetria McKinney stepped out to support the new show.

"Braxton Family Values" star Trina Braxton was also in the mix.

Is The Super Bowl A Race Ritual? Check This Video!

Posted by | Posted in Da Game and Industry News | Posted on 12-02-2016

YOOOOOOOOOOO! This is crazy! This guy picks the Super Bowl just about ever year. Now at first he calls the Super Bowl “a distraction,” but he takes it all wayyyyyyy farther than that. Not only did he predict the outcome of the Super Bowl to a TEA. But, then he goes farther and maintains that Cam Newton and Peyton Manning are “low level masons.” And, then have maintains that the “gay agenda” was in full swing as well during the colorful half-time display. Others (not this dude) have said that Beyonce was the anti-cop movement, which I don’t believe.
