CAT OUT THE BAG? "Empire" Star Malik Yoba REVEALS Jussie Smollett Is Gay

Posted by | Posted in Gurl Talk | Posted on 27-02-2015

So it seems Malik Yoba may have (mistakenly?) revealed Jussie Smollett is gay. Get the deets inside….

As an “Empire” fan, watching his character Jamal Lyon deal with being a gay man and the hardships he faces with his own father and his public image, many can’t help but wonder…is Jussie Smollett also a gay man? Jussie has yet to confirm his sexual orientation, but one of his co-stars has.

Malik Yoba, who stars Vernon Turner on the hit FOX series, did an interview with Black Film were he revealed Jussie Smollett is, in fact, gay in real life. He spilled,

“I think that our show represents a huge opportunity to stay in the culture beyond entertainment value and there’s an intrinsic nature of you have the gay factor, right? So, obviously, Lee is gay. That was an important storyline for him. I think it’s important for people to see themselves. Even within the Black community. But if you aren’t really, really taking it off of screen and making it live in the community in a significant way…like I know Jussie, he is gay, and he’s very committed to issues around the LGBT community. He and I have a very close relationship.”

Oh? Well apparently, he didn’t talk to Jussie about revealing details of his personal life because Jussie makes it his business to keep his personal life private.

During a recent interview with Sway on “Sway In The Morning” satellite radio show, when Jussie was asked about his sexual orientation he said,

“I’m not willing to confirm or deny anything. I live my life. I don’t hide anything, I just don’t choose to talk about my personal life.”

Looks like Malik let the cat out the bag.

In other “Empire” news….

The amazingly talented Jussie Smolllett recently revealed he has inked a deal with Columbia Records. So is an album in the works? It appears that there is! He told Entertainment Weekly,

“There will be a Jussie Smollett album. I signed to Columbia. So darling [Laughs] I’m label mates with Beyoncé and Adele and Barbra Streisand.
 

We’re here for it!  Check out the full version of the track "You’re So Beautiful," which he performed on the last episode here.

Would you cop an album from Jussie?  We definitely would!

IN THESE TWEETS: Did Tiny’s Daughter Zonnique Come For Khloe Kardashian & Her “Fitness Journey”?! + Amber Rose Changes Her Mind On Posting Baby Bash On Social Media

Posted by | Posted in Gurl Talk | Posted on 27-02-2015

Is Khloe Kardashian catching more Twitter fade? It appears so. And this time, Tiny’s daughter Zonnique is calling her out. Find out what went down and Amber Rose’s announcement about posting pictures of her son on social media inside….

After Amber Rose relentlessly “humbled” Khloe Kardashian last week, it appears someone else is now coming for the "Keeping Up With The Kardashians" reality star.

Tiny’s daughter/OMG girl Zonnique is calling folks out on their BS. You know, those who act as if they have worked hard in the gym to get the body they longed for, when in actuality, they may have had some surgical help.  Hmph.

So here’s how it started….

 photo khlo1.png

Earlier today, Khloe took to her Instagram to flex her results of "hard work" in the gym. According to the reality star, she has been sweating it out in the gym and eating right to achieve that flat tummy she’s showing off in the picture above. Here’s what she said:

 photo kh1.png

Khloe credits a long fitness journey for her physique, but everyone isn’t buying it. And by everyone, we mean Tiny’s daughter Zonnique. Apparently the OMG girl peeped Khloe’s fitness talk and had a little shade to throw of her own. She tweeted:

One of her fans followed up asking her if she was referring to Khloe Kardashian:

Zonnique responded with a smiley face ":)" which she ended up deleting. Bloop!

No word from Khloe…yet.

 

Elsewhere…..

 

I’m keeping my sons pictures off of social media from now on. He doesn’t have to be in the middle of these messy fake stories.

— Amber Rose (@DaRealAmberRose) February 27, 2015

 

With all of the "Internet drama" she’s been involved with lately, Amber Rose has decided she will no longer post any pictures of her adorable son Sebastian, whom she shares with her estranged husband Wiz Khalifa.

We assume the drama brewing between Amber and Wiz has something to do with it. Although Amber had no problem going at Khloe Kardashian, Kanye West and his wife Kim K on Twitter recently, she has been pretty mum on her husband’s recent claims via social media.

Last week, Wiz got super emotional with a series of tweets accusing Amber of keeping Baby Bash away from him on his 2nd birthday (Feb. 21st). While Wiz was tweeting, Amber was buys posting pics of their baby boy. Fortunately for Wiz (if true), he got a chance to see his son recently to give him his birthday gifts for his BASH day. Peep the adorable flicks here.

Review: Big Sean’s Dark Sky Paradise

Posted by | Posted in Da Game and Industry News | Posted on 27-02-2015

big-sean-dark-sky-paradise-cover

Big Sean has been on a trip ever since last album Hall Of Fame. As the Detroit rapper continue to make hits with a plethora of big names from Travi$ Scott to Common, there seems to be a struggle when he makes an album. This time around, Sean’s new project Dark Sky Paradise brings in a darker vibe compared other projects in his catalogue. You get the feeling as if he’s finally establishing a his own sound, and far more serious than we’ve ever heard before. However, the album also has a few faults that keeps Sean’s project from being a serious project.

The first half of Dark Sky Paradise is explosive, and it give you the feeling like Big Sean is giving it his all. The album starts out with “Dark Sky (Skyscrapers)”, then hits you with the single “Blessings and then a dope Kanye West-featured track called “All Your Fault”.  You’re then gifted with the radio-hit “I Don’t F*ck With You” to keep you interested as the album plays on. Sean’s rhymes are repetitive sometimes, but there are significant moments in Dark Sky where his flow and the production are combined perfectly. The MikeWillMadeIt-produced single “Paradise” is a dope example of this. There’s also production from DJ Mustard, Key Wane, and of course, Kanye. “Play No Games” was a dope track that feels like a early 90’s rap slow jam. It is throughout this first half that you get the feeling like Sean’s music is trying to prove something.

Here’s the problem with Dark Sky Paradise though. After “Paradise”, things get a little slow, and when things get a little slow, the album kind of looses its fire. Jhene Aiko’s featured appearances are dope additions to the album, but it’s hard to listen to after the entire turn-up session before. It’s like an actual dark sky was over this section of the album. Although things kind of pick up with “Deep”, Dark Sky Paradise gets a bit stale for a second, and looses the cohesiveness it had from the beginning.

Dark Sky Paradise is an album you listen with caution. Although Sean continues to supply banging hits on his third album, he still struggles with finding an effective way of grabbing the listener. It kind of sucks too, because Dark Sky Paradise attempts to give you a serious effort.

Kid Rock Disses Beyonce & Gets Attacked!

Posted by | Posted in Da Game and Industry News | Posted on 27-02-2015

I don’t even think Kid Rock dissed Beyonce – until the end of the quote. SMH. He just offered his two cents on an international phenomenon. But that doesn’t matter when it comes to the Bey Hive. They will go crazy on your a$$ if you come out of your mouth the wrong way. And, they did just that when he said:

“Beyoncé, to me, doesn’t have a fucking ‘Purple Rain,’ but she’s the biggest thing on Earth. How can you be that big without at least one ‘Sweet Home Alabama’ or ‘Old Time Rock & Roll’? People are like, ‘Beyoncé’s hot. Got a nice f**king a$$.’ I’m like, ‘Cool, I like skinny white chicks with big tits.’ Doesn’t really f**king do much for me.”

Then this happened!

Is Rihanna Headed For Heartbreak?

Posted by | Posted in Da Game and Industry News | Posted on 27-02-2015

I tried to ignore this, but Rihanna and Leonardo DiCaprio are dating. They even went so far as to spend Valentines Day together. According to the Star magazine insider, Leo is going around telling people that he’s free and clear – a totally single man. Rihanna on the other hand is all types of enamored by Leo the Dio. (OK, that was corny.) They also say that he’s really not into Rihanna, why I find hard to believe. Who’s not into RiRi? Put your hands up! Anyway, their sources say that dude said Rihanna was “nobody special.” I don’t know about that. This could be a publicity stunt or something. Or maybe, it is just another hit and run. At least he won’t likely be hitting on her.

Kobe & Vanessa Bryant And Friends Hit Premiere For Self-Made Bio "MUSE"

Posted by | Posted in Gurl Talk | Posted on 27-02-2015

 photo fefefefevff.png

Kobe Bryant and his wife Vanessa welcomed NBA friends and more to the London West Hollywood to watch the premiere of his visual biography MUSE.  See red carpet pics inside and get the deets on his passion-project… 

 photo KobeBryantKobeBryantMusePremieresWestU6fXBjeV90ll.jpg

It was a red carpet affair at The London Hotel – West Hollywood last night as NBA legend/icon Kobe Bryant (shown above with wife Vanessa) premiered his film MUSE. (SIDEBAR- if The London Hotel sounds familiar, its the place where Lupita N’yongo’s $150K pearl Oscar gown was stolen. We hope Vanessa kept an eye on her own ish!)

 photo PremiereShowtimeKobeBryantMuseRedCarpetiHg5ZXqBKp6l.jpg

MUSE is story of Kobe Bryant.  The who, what, where, why and how of his life.  It’s not simply a set of interviews or Wikipedia facts, Kobe completely dove into the making of the film (alongside director Gotham Chopra, son of Deepak Chopra).

When asked about the autobiographical documentary, and how he came up with the idea, Kobe told VARIETY,

“I’m just constantly curious. If you have an idea, and if you’re obsessive about what you do, I want to know why.
There’s a common thread between how John Williams composes a score, and how Ariana Huffington decided to build the Huffington Post. There are common threads, and I want to learn about those things."

Kobe Bryant has MUSES. And he’s interested storytelling. This project seems to merge the two. It’s his way of telling his story, something he’s not typically known to do.  He reveals how he built "KOBE Bryant" into the legend he has become.  Showtime president David Nevins said it best, “Kobe Bryant’s Muse” is not a sports documentary:

“This is not Bill Russell looking back on his career 25 years later. This is a man who’s sort of at the height of his power, going really deep with self-examination. And that is rare.”

Famously private, the documentary covers EVERYTHING, including that "incident" where he cheated on Vanessa. It’s all here. Kobe tweeted,

We also spotted an open letter Kobe recently penned to his fans.  Alongside MUSE, it shows the depth of his character and his forcefulness as a warrior.  You’ll walk about with a complete understanding of KOBE - the alpha warrior champion.

"Hunt or be hunted has always been my mentality. I don’t hide the aggressiveness of competition behind All-Star parties, sponsored events, and the idea that the weekend game is a well deserved break.

The fans voted me in to watch me take on the world’s best. That competition is what I love.

Whether my counterpart is ready or not, resting or not, or just feels like going through the motions, it has nothing to do with me. When I play, I compete, and if you’re too busy acting cool for the fans or celebrities courtside then I will demolish you in front of them.

I want MVP. There’s no shame in feeling that way. Why should there be? I want the world to see me dominate the players that are debated by millions of fans as being on my level. Competing with this spirit is fun to me and it kills me that I’m not able to participate this year. I am a spectator from home.

As a fan, I can only hope one player decides to take the game on the same way I do and raise its level from the opening tip. Being passive aggressive in this competition means you’re fine with simply going with the flow and unwilling to disturb the calm waters of the game to accomplish your goals.

I see that as a weakness. It’s our nature to compete. Throw the ball up and let’s see who the alpha is.

Maybe I’m just old school. Maybe my line of thinking is that of a rotary phone. Maybe this smartphone generation enjoys sharing games of domination. Maybe they like taking turns. Maybe they enjoy competing passive aggressively.

Maybe I’m the one with the problem, maybe it is right to have multiple alphas, maybe I’m the weaker one, the selfish one. Maybe, just maybe …

Either way, I refuse to change what I am. A lion has to eat. Run with me or run from me."

 

Back to the red carpet….
