Serena Williams is flexing her perfectly toned bod (while topless) and Ava DuVernay shows off her funky printed trousers in a new calendar spread. Peep her sexy shot inside….

When your body looks anything like 21-time Grand Slam tennis champ Serena Williams, stripping down to your underwear is obviously not a big deal. The 34-year-old goes topless and flosses her athletic bod in the 2016 Pirelli calendar. The highly-anticipated calendar usually features nudity, but this year’s calendar takes a much different approach, highlighting a few amazingly talented women in the game.

Shot by celebrity photographer Annie Leibovitz, Serena, fab directress Ava DuVernay and 11 other women are featured for their “outstanding professional, social, cultural, sporting and artistic accomplishments” in the celebrity/fashion infused calendar.

People can say what they want about Serena, but you can’t take away the fact her naturaly muscular body is beautiful.

Also in the calendar….

SELMA director Ava DuVernay nabs the month of July where she shows off her funky printed slacks. Apparently, she was suppose to change into something else, but once Annie (the photographer) saw her fabulously frugal pants, she demanded she didn’t change! Ava shared, "Don’t change clothes! I love your pants!" Thnx to fab Annie Leibovitz + @Pirelli for this shot in my fav $20 pants."

Loves it.

Lil Wayne appears in his ex-girlfriend Christina Milian’s new visuals for her track “Do It.” Take a peek inside….

Alleged former couple Christina Milian and Lil Wayne prove you can still have a healthy business relationship even after a break up.

For C-Milli’s newest video treatment, the reality star joins forces with her former fling and boss Lil Wayne for “Do It,” a cut from her upcoming 4U EP (December 4th).

In the Stephen Garrett-directed clip, C-Milli and Weezy let loose for a night out on the town as Christina sings about letting go of her inhibitions and just living it up with a guy she normally wouldn’t date. Sounds familiar?

The timing of the video couldn’t have come at a more perfect time after her Thanksgiving mini-meltdown via Twitter. The "Grandfathered" star was all in her feelings after peeping pics of Weezy’s (current?) main chick Dhea spending the holiday with the Young Money honcho and his family. If you missed, get the latest here.

Check out Christina and Weezy “doing it” below:

Posted by | Posted in Gurl Talk | Posted on 30-11-2015

Creed made history its opening weekend. And to celebrate, Michael “Bae” Jordan hit up the Staples Center to peep the Lakers go head-to-head against the Indiana Pacers. Get the deets and pics inside….

This Thanksgiving weekend brought a brand new Rocky sequel featuring the sexy Michal B. Jordan. We don’t care what y’all have to say about “BAE,” we’re loving every bit of his YBF self.

Anyhwho, CREED hit movie theaters across the nation this weekend and while it didn’t land the No. 1 spot at the box office (it came in at No. 3), it DID make the history books. According to reports, the Rocky sequel raked in a whopping $42.6 million over the last five days ($30.1 million in the first three days) making it the highest grossing opening for a Rocky film. Woot! It cost a cool $35 million to produce, so we can count this film as a major success.

If you haven’t checked it out yet, it’s worth a viewing. Along with Michael B’s sexy self there were SEVERAL pieces of YBF eye candy sprinkled throughout the movie for you liking. And Tessa Thompson did an exceptional job on her role as well.

Speaking of the Creed star…

Last night, the 28-year-old Hollywood actor hit up the Staples Center to check out the Los Angeles Lakers square off against the Indiana Pacers.

Before the game, the YBF actor chopped it up with Lakers superstar Kobe Bryant. Michael made sure to check out the iconic NBA baller during his last and final season, which Kobe JUST announced.

Luckily for Kobe and the Lakers, they defeated the Pacers 107-103. Fun times.

ROUND UP: Jill Scott Says "I Wasn’t Trying To Be Sexy"+ Soul Cypher Flows + Babyface’s Mega Tribute At The 2015 Soul Train Awards

Posted by | Posted in Gurl Talk | Posted on 30-11-2015

 photo sta1.jpg

We’ve rounded up a few highlights from the 2015 Soul Train Music Awards that we know you’ll enjoy. Come inside to see the fabulous Jill Scott accept the Lady of Soul Award, the Soul Cyber flows and Babyface’s epic tribute inside…

If you’re an R&B/Soul head, the 2015 Soul Train Music Awards definitely put you a good space with its throwback hits/tributes, host Erykah Badu’s funny and funky energy and just seeing some of your all-time favorite performers. It was definitely one for the books.

This year’s woman of the hour was Jill Scott as she was praised for her contributions to the R&B/Neo-soul world. Ms. Jilly from Philly was presented with the first-ever Lady of Soul Award and she also nabbed the Best R&B/Soul Female Artist Award.

Before she accepted the award, a beautiful presentation that chronicled her musical career was shared from industry’s top executives and artists such as Whoopi Goldberg, Usher and more where they talked about Jill’s energy, creativity, exceptional talent and inspiration. Check it:

The WOMAN songstress was then introduced by actress Regina Hall. Jill’s 6-year-old ridiculously cute son Jett accompanied his mom as she took the stage to accept her award.

In true Jilly from Philly style, she dropped a few gems saying,

“I didn’t want to be sexy for anybody. I swear I didn’t, but I did want to write some sexy stff. Why does it matter what I look like? As long as I tell my story and you relate to it and you laugh with it, and you live with it. That’s what you’ve been doing and I appreciate the respect. Thank you for treating me with respect because I earned it. And I like it. Thank you so much.”

Check it below:

Did we mention how AMAZING she looked? Sheesh!

Following the acceptance of her award, the soulful songstress serenaded the audience with her classic tracks “Back Together,” “Long Walk,” “It’s Love,” “Golden,” “Cross My Mind,” and “Whatever.”

Peep a few clips below:

Another highlight of the evening….

Host Erykah Badu hits the 1s & 2s for an amazing Soul Cypher featuring vocals from Chrisette Michele, K-Ci and the legeandary Eddie Levert. Now THIS is a cypher worth hearing. Take a listen below:

And then THIS happened…

We were blessed with an epic performance of some of Kenneth “Babyface” Edmonds’ greatest hits performed by some of the actual artists he wrote the tunes for. Honoree Babyface was awarded the Legend Award for his amazing contribution to the R&B/Soul world.

First, Tevin Campbell hit the stage to serenade the audience with “Can We Talk,” followed by Brandy busting some of her moves for “Sittin Up In My Room.” Fantasia then took center stage to perform Whitney Houston’s “Exhale (Shoop Shoop) and Karyn White’s “Superwoman.” (SIDENOTE: We’ve got the scoop on why Karyn didn’t perform her track. You can get those deets HERE).

As a surprise, Bobby Brown then hit the stage to perform “Roni.” We couldn’t help but notice how it appeared he was struggling to get through his set. But, he later revealed during the after show he had lost his voice earlier in the day. After Bobby, Boyz II Men came to set the mood right with their performances of “I’ll Make Love To You” & “End Of The Road.” Closing the 16-minute tribute, Babyface hit the stage to perform (and dance) his hit single “Whip Appeal.”

So Karyn White WASN’T Busy? Singer Speaks On Soul Train Awards Debacle

Posted by | Posted in Gurl Talk | Posted on 30-11-2015

 photo Screen Shot 2015-11-30 at 12.54.41 PM_zpsh49ztnib.png

Last night during the Babyface tribute on the Soul Train Awards, Fantasia belted out the LaFace penned track "Superwoman."  Apparently, we weren’t the only ones thinking to ourselves, "Was Karyn White busy?"

 

Find out what Karyn said today about the shade of it all….

We’ve been singing "Superwoman" damn near since grade school.  Singer Karyn White was IT back in the 80′s.  So when Fantasia hollered through *clears throat* wonderfully belted out the track during Babyface’s tribute while the man himself backed her on piano, we were a bit confused.  Yes, Fanny can SANG.  But damn, would it have killed BET/Centric/Soul Train to ask the person who originally sang it to perform?  Especially since they found time to get so many other throwback artists like After 7, Cameo, Tevin Campbell and others who were there.

Well, Karyn was equally confused.  The fab 50-year-old (yes, she’s 50 and looks AMAZING!) took to her Facebook page to address what went down.

She says she was inundated with phone calls and messages asking if she was OK because she wasn’t in Vegas to perform at the Awards.  Karyn revealed she was never called by BET, Centric or any Soul Train reps to come out and perform.  After she gave major kudos to Fantasia for the fabulous job that she did, she said she herself is still on the music scene and actually just released a new album while on a new tour.

Bottom line, she would have loved to perform her song "Superwoman," but "doesn’t know" why she wasn’t called.  Even though she "made it a hit."  Bloop.

Peep the video below:

Future’s Tour Rider Revealed

Posted by | Posted in Da Game and Industry News | Posted on 30-11-2015

When Future pulls up for a performance, he is very particular about what he wants waiting for him in his dressing room and how much he is paid. Fewtch’s tour rider has been discovered and it shows that he will perform a 45-minute set at a show for a whopping $150,000. But before he hits the stage he must munch on junk food and the finest liquor.

[ALSO READ: Future On ‘What A Time To Be Alive’ Joint Project With Drake: “It Never Happened” (VIDEO)]

When the Cocaine Cowboy touches down, he wants chicken fingers and broccoli for his main entree. For his snacks, he likes cheddar popcorn and “freshly white powdered” doughnuts. He then can choose from four bottles of Ace of Spades, Moet and Ciroc to sip on.

His room must also have a certain ambiance. He demands that the room have Lemongrass scented candles to set the mood.
