BOX OFFICE, SLASHED! ‘Black Panther’ Officially 5th Largest Marvel Opening Of All Time – See The Epic Numbers!

Posted by | Posted in Gurl Talk | Posted on 18-02-2018

Black Panther has officially met the levels of epicness we knew it would.  It raked in hundreds of millions of dollar this weekend, and proved that the black dollar and a black cast are both, in fact, magic. 

 

Find out how it’s doing during this 4-day Holiday weekend inside…

Black Panther is awesome AF.  And Marvel’s now got the numbers to back that up.

King T’Challa and his super fierce Dora Milaje slashed up the box office to the tune of $192M over this traditional 3-day weekend.  When you toss in tomorrow’s Presidents Day estimate, we’re talking a $218M 4-day weekend opening, per Disney’s reports!

Deadline broke down how this measures up against all other Marvel Films, with Panther officially coming in 5th on the 3-day chart:

Industry estimates indicating a $195M three-day for Marvel’s Black Panther and a $225M 4-day. That four-day is a wild number, some have it as low as $218M and others well north of $230M. Saturday raked in $65.9M per Disney. Per Disney’s call, Black Panther at this point is the 5th highest opening of all-time on the 3-day chart after Avengers ($207.4M) and before Avengers: Age of Ultron ($191.3M), and it’s beating the four-day take of the latter ($204.4M).

The numbers are quite close, and it’s a MAJOR feat for the A+ CinemaScore flick.

No longer can studios claim black-led movies don’t appeal to a mass audience, because Black Panther is yet another movie that proves otherwise. While Blacks made up a reported 37% of ticketholders, Whites made up 35% with Latino and Asian groups also clocking in some numbers. And women are flexing their consumer power as well:

Screen Engine/ComScore PostTrak reports 37% African Americans attending, followed by 35% Caucasian, 18% Hispanic and 5% Asian (they update their exit polls throughout the weekend as they continually poll). Still 95% overall positive. 18-24 demo was very huge at 36%. Leading demos: Men under 25 (29%), men 25+ (27%), women 25+ (23%) and women under 25 (21%).

 

As Lupita Nyong’o and Danai Gurira take over South Africa this weekend with a Panther premiere, the international box office for the flick is equally lit.

Studios and PR machines love to make ridiculous claims that "black-led movies don’t resonate overseas", but once again, the proof is in the pudding. As of Saturday, the flick was on par for a $81.5M international opening:

It is now outperforming not only Ant-Man, Guardians Of The Galaxy and Doctor Strange, but Thor: Ragnarok and is on its way to besting all pre-weekend projections. It should cross $150M in 48 markets through Sunday.

Another biggie: "Fandango is reporting a significantly higher rate of repeat customers for Black Panther than it has seen for other superhero movies on an opening weekend," this according to Deadline.

 

Check out how folks have been flocking to the theaters all weekend:

Celebs and community leaders have been buying out theaters left and right to show Black PantherSerena Williams – who rented out a San Francisco theater for a group of surprised YBF youngins from Girls Who Code – summed it up best:

 

"We’ve never had a superhero movie," Serena told the group … "So, we’re so excited. I feel like I’ve waited my whole life for this."

 

(Given, Blade and a few other black superheroes have graced the big screen. But it’s definitely a first for an almost all-black cast superhero movie like Panther.)

 

BONUS 2:

The folks over at Nerdist dropped this Marvel music video take on Jaden Smith’s “Icon”. They swapped out Hollywood royalty Jaden for the King of Wakanda. Jaden’s a fan.

Omarosa EXPOSED For Allegedly Begging For ‘Sex’ Situation From Piers Morgan + Gladys Knight Isn’t Here For Your Facelift Accusations

Posted by | Posted in Gurl Talk | Posted on 17-02-2018

 photo omarosaouted.jpg

Piers Morgan is blowing the whistle on Omarosa’s conniving and vindictive ways while on “Celebrity Big Brother.” Find out what he said about her begging him for sex and more. Plus, hear what Gladys Knight has to say about those plastic surgery rumors inside…

When is she NOT doing the most?

Omarosa Manigault Newman was pulling out all the stunts to try and win “Celebrity Big Brother.” And now, evictee Piers Morgan is spilling the tea on what exactly she was up to in the house while trying to strategize a way to win.

According to the British journalist, the former White House aide tried to get him to have sex with her so they could make “sell the story” and form an alliance to win the show. He appeared on “The Talk” to detail what went down.

 photo omarosaouted2.jpg

“Day one, she sidles up to me — and I’d never met this woman before — and says, ‘So Piers, I’m thinking that you and I could get into a showmance,’” he revealed.

“I went ‘You are completely deluded. This is not happening,’” he said he responded.

Once he curved her, she got mad and started calling him gay. Then, he said from then on out she was the “most abusive, homophobic, horrible person” he had ever met in his entire life. Are you surprised? We aren’t.

Peep the clip below:

Do you think Omarosa will win it all?

Gladys Knight is not here for y’all saying she got plastic surgery.

There’s no denying she’s looks AHH-MAZING these days. Pictures of her attending Clive Davis’ annual pre-Grammy party (pictured above) started circulating and folks couldn’t help but notice how youthful she looked. That’s when folks started speculating that the 73-year-old had undergone plastic surgery to have a facelift.

Well, she took to social media to set the record straight and she claims she did NOT get a facelift. You can thank her glam squad, eating clean and happiness for her fabulousness.  Allegedly.

Check it below:

 

I feel like I won a gold medal with all the compliments. You guys keep me young! Thankful for these God given genes and clean living. My activity of choice has been tennis, working my way up to be as good as @serenawilliams and @venuswilliams . Of course I can’t do this alone, I have the best glam squad and team that keeps me looking fresh and on point. My husband William @fortuneandmind has an eye for fashion and helps me with the majority of my looks. I think he missed his calling as a stylist. I also have to give credit to my amazingly talented hairstylist Tre @treworldhairsalon in Las Vegas for my Bedhead Pixie Cut. My makeup artist Miss Kayla @tress2impresskp had me GLOWING at the Clive Davis Grammy Party with @maccosmetics Skinfinish highlighter. You know that friend that stays real with you, I’m lucky to have one that travels me. Thank you Ms. Blondie! Watch out 2018 so much more to come! #2018 #cleanliving #trezyhair #specificbeauty #feelinggood

LaVar Ball BOTCHES Nas’ Track On ‘Lip Sync Battle,’ Lonzo Drags Him! + 3LW Songwriters Lose Case Against Taylor Swift

Posted by | Posted in Gurl Talk | Posted on 17-02-2018

 photo balllip4.jpg

Father-son duo LaVar and Lonzo Ball flexed their rap skills on “Lip Sync Battle,” but things didn’t go well for LaVar. See his performance, plus get details on 3LW songwriters losing a case against Taylor Swift inside…

LaVar Ball boasts a lot about being the best. But apparently, rapping isn’t his forte.

The helicopter dad will appear on “Lip Sync Battle” tonight to go head-to-head against his son/LA Lakers baller Lonzo Ball. We think LaVar skipped rehearsal or something because he totally butchers Nas’ “You Can Hate Me Now” track.

 photo balllip1.jpg

 photo balllip2.jpg

“If I was Nas, I’d be mad he put a performance like that on my song," Lonzo says about his dad’s performance.

We know you’re wondering how does one mess up a LIP SYNC performance, but you’ll see:

This mess.

What’s funny is that LaVar chose to perform a song by Nas and his son Lonzo has "beef" with the rapper. The two have trolled each other in the past.

Meanwhile, the NBA baller will perform Migos’ hit single "Bad & Boujee":

Ha!

Check out their pre-show banter below:

Tune in to see their "Lip Sync Battle" episode tonight at 10pm EST on the Paramount Network.

In legal news…

 photo 3LW.jpg

3LW songwriters, Sean Hall and Nathan Butler, felt Taylor Swift jacked one of their songs, so they sued her.

The songwriters behind 3LW’s 2001 hit "Playas Gon’ Play" pulled the trigger on the lawsuit in September 2017 after making claims that Taylor’s “Shake It Off” infringes on their lyrics.

THR reports:

The girl group sang "Playas, they gonna play / And haters, they gonna hate,” while Swift declared "[T]he players gonna play, play, play, play, play and the haters gonna hate, hate, hate, hate, hate.” At the time, a rep for the superstar said the complaint was nothing more than a ridiculous money grab.

U.S. District Judge Michael Fitzgerald on Tuesday granted Swift’s motion to dismiss the suit but is giving plaintiffs Sean Hall and Nathan Butler one shot to amend their complaint by Feb. 26.

There’s no dispute over whether Hall and Butler owned their lyrics, or that Swift’s team had access to the song. There’s also no allegation of copying the underlying musical composition. So Fitzgerald’s analysis centers on whether there is substantial similarity between protectable lyrics.

So, they took an L for now, but they could take it back to court at the end of the month.  Good luck with that.

NYFW LEFTOVERS: Cardi B’s Cruella de Vil Inspired Look Has Us Questioning Some Things + Lil Kim, Kehlani & More Doing The Most At Marc Jacobs Show

Posted by | Posted in Gurl Talk | Posted on 16-02-2018

Cardi B and Lil Kim had heads turning at the Marc Jacobs show during New York Fashion Week and we have a few questions. Peep their flicks inside…

NYC rappers Cardi B and Lil Kim hit up Marc Jacobs Fall 2018 show held at Park Avenue during NYFW. But their "green" looks don’t necessarily have us green with envy.

 photo MarcJacobsFall2018ShowFrontRowMfo8BGIyWgCl.jpg

We’re just going to say it, we’re not feeling the "Bodak Yellow" rapper’s look. It’s giving us Cruella de Vil-who-suddenly-wanted-to-experiment-with-prints vibes for some reason. However, it’s an ensemble ripped straight from Marc Jacobs’ Spring 2018 RTW collection.  And FW is the time to go balls to the wall.  So do you boo.

It sort of reminds us of the ensemble she wore for her late night TV appearance on "Jimmy Fallon."

Not only that, she also appears to be covering this ALLEGED baby bump that she keeps denying she has. Mmhmm… 

She’s feeling it though and that’s all that matters:

EXCLUSIVE: Ryan Coogler Says ‘Black Panther’ Is The Denzel Washington-Will Smith Movie That Never Happened

Posted by | Posted in Gurl Talk | Posted on 16-02-2018

 photo ryanmovie.jpg

Director Ryan Coogler turned Black Panther into a film he never got to see as a kid. Find out what he told TheYBF.com about how this film measures up to a few Hollywood titans, plus find out how Black Panther took over the box office last night inside…

It’s the BIGGEST movie of the year and we’re only in February. Trust, Black Panther is set to do some amazing things at the box office and we can already see the Oscar nominations to come.

Director Ryan Coogler made sure he created the movie of the year even before we knew it was going to climb to such astronomical heights. We sat down with the 31-year-old film director to pick his brain about all this all black cast came into fruition.

The award winning director told us, for him, Black Panther is like that Denzel Washing/Will Smith movie he never got to see as a kid. He knew THIS was his opportunity to create that magic with stars like Chadwick Boseman and Michael B. Jordan on the big screen.

“Coming up in the 90s, we had like three of these male stars that could front any kind of movie,” he told TheYBF.com’s correspondent Unique Chapman. “They can act, they can do action, they can be funny, they can be funny. It was Denzel [Washington], it was Will [Smith] and it was Wesley [Snipes] and they were never in a movie together for whatever reason.”

 photo bpmikechad.jpg

“Like for me, this was like the opportunity,” he continued. “Chad can front his own movie. Mike can front his own movie. I had the chance to make that Denzel/Will Smith movie I never got to see.”

Hmm…do you agree? Are Chad and Mike the Denzel and Will of our time? Or, is it too soon? Tell us in the comments.

Meanwhile…

Y’all showed up and showed out for Black Panther’s preview last night!

Marvel’s superhero film raked in a whopping $25.2 million this morning, making it the 2nd best Thursday preview ever for a Marvel film following Avengers: Age of Ultron ($27.6M). Black Panther beat out Captain America: Civil War, which brought in $25 million. Woot!

Here’s a look at how real-life YBFers are killing it at the theaters.  Extra AF, and we love it:

Meek Mill Claims Arresting Officer Is DIRTY, So He Wants Out Of Prison + Fantasia Mourns Nephew Fatally Shot

Posted by | Posted in Gurl Talk | Posted on 16-02-2018

 photo meekcop.png

Meek Mill is trying his damnedest to get out of jail, especially after this investigative report came out exposing his arresting officer. In unfortunate news, Fantasia is currently mourning the death of her nephew was fatally shot. Get it all inside…

Meek Mill is NOT giving up when it comes to his freedom. As you all know, he’s currently serving a 2-4 year prison sentence for violating his probation. But, since he’s been behind bars, he and his legal team have been working hard for his freedom.

First, the MMG rapper and his team tried to have Judge Genece Brinkley taken off his case due to her being too “emotionally invested.”

Now, Meek’s team has filed a new petition requesting his release from jail on bond. Why? Well, he claims Officer Reginald Graham, the cop who originally arrested him in 2007, is DIRTY and a new investigate report backs those claims.

TMZ got their hands on the court documents, which saay Meek’s case should be thrown out because another officer, named Gerold Gibson, claims Officer Graham LIED when he wrote in the police report that Meek pointed a gun at him. Officer Gibson revealed the "Dreams & Nightmares" rapper only took the gun out of his waistband to discard it. He also said Officer Graham lied about the rapper resisting arrest. Well damn.

So, where is all this coming from? Apparently the Philadelphia Inquirer released an investigative report about a “list of Philly cops with a history of lying, abuse, and racial bias.”

In the report, it’s said the Philadelphia District Attorney’s Office keeps a secret list of police officers who reportedly can not be considered credible witnesses in court.

Pitchfork has a few details in the investigative report:

In addition to referencing the Inquirer’s report, Meek’s lawyers cited sworn affidavits from two former Philadelphia police officers who question Graham’s credibility. Jerold Gibson claimed he was present for the 2007 arrest and contradicted many points made by Graham during Mill’s trial. He disputed Graham’s claims that Mill pointed a gun at anyone, that officers were forced to yell “drop the gun,” and that Meek attempted to flee.

The second officer, Jeffrey Walker, detailed multiple experiences with Graham before and after Mill’s arrest. Among other things, he claimed that Graham “frequently stole” money found during searches and “often beat people he considered suspects.” Walker also claimed that Graham fabricated the probable cause for search warrants and lied about the justification for warrantless searches. According to Wlker, Graham’s preliminary arrest report for Mill’s case “bears the hallmarks of a fraudulent affidavit, written to manufacture probable cause for the search warrant.”

With this new information, Meek wants his conviction thrown out, which means he wouldn’t be on probation and he could be released from. If charges aren’t withdrawn or dismissed, the rapper’s attorneys will be seeking a new trial.

They might be on to something this go around.

In very sad news…

 photo fannynephew.jpg

It’s always hard losing a loved one, especially a love one who is young and has the rest of the lives ahead of them.

Unfortunately for Fantasia, that’s her reality right now.

The Grammy winner’s 18-year-old nephew, Tyquan Vonricco Washington, was shot and killed in Greensboro, North Carolina on Wednesday (February 14th). Valentine’s Day will never be the same again for the singer.

"Ty Auntie is So Sorry Baby. RIP to my Oldest Nephew Please Pray for his Mother and my Brother @riccobarrino & his Stepdad," Fanny wrote on Instagram as she mourned her young nephew.

 

 

While nothing can relieve the pain of losing a loved one, the police have reportedly arrested 21-year-old suspect David Lee White, Jr. He has been charged with first-degree murder and is in jail without bond. It’s reported the men had some type of dispute before the shooting, but it’s unclear what the dispute was about.

 

 

So sad. Keeping Fantasia and her family in our prayers.

The (Gorgeous) New SI Swimsuit Edition Cover Model Made #BlackGirlMagic History – And Michael B. Jordan DEF Noticed

Posted by | Posted in Gurl Talk | Posted on 15-02-2018

Black History Month just got a little more beachy…and topless. Danielle Herrington is the 2018 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition cover girl, and she’s only the third black woman to do so. See how Tyra Banks surprised her with the news, and how Michael B. Jordan already made it KNOWN he’s a fan. Mmhmm….

Well.come.on.through.then.Danielle!

 photo Screen Shot 2018-02-13 at 7.55.35 PM_zps6cxthmh5.png

You don’t need to make a major business move or invention or kill it in a sport or on-screen to go down in the Black History Month books.  If you can slay a bikini this well, you get Tyra Banks, Michael B. Jordan and a Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition cover.

24-year-old Danielle Herrington came out of nowhere to become only the third black woman to grace the cover of SI’s iconic Swimsuit Edition.  Oh, and she’s from Compton.

As one of the freshest faces to hit this issue, she could have fooled us.  Chick’s whole spread is Pro Status.  Even Tyra Banks, one of the three brown queens to grace the cover (Beyonce is the other), took notice.  She surprised an emotional Danielle with the news in the Tyra-ist of ways – extra AF.  But we love it.

 

Michael B. Jordan is still on a mission to convince us he doesn’t mind a little sprinkle of black girl magic in his life.  So he crashed her Facebook Live she was doing this morning from the set of "Good Morning America."

Peep the 2:28 mark below:

“Keep doing what you’re doing, it’s an inspiration,” Jordan told Danielle after the two hugged it out.

In other words, "Hey big head. Proud of u!"

Mmhmm.  We’re not even mad Mike. We hear she’s single, btw.

 

 

 

Between Danielle and Meghan Markle (and the Williams sisters, of course), Compton girls are killing the typically-reserved-for-white-women game.  Keep sprinkling ladies.

Nick Cannon Reunites The ‘All That’ Cast On ‘Wild ‘N Out’ & Serves Up All The Nostalgia Feels + ‘Black Panther’ Cast Still Slaying The Promo Trail

Nick Cannon brought the 90s feels during an episode of “Wild ‘N Out,” while the Black Panther cast invaded NYC returning from overseas. Everything inside…

Gotta love Nick Cannon for this one!

The “Wild ‘N Out” host was able to reunite the “All That” cast for a extra fun episode. Literally one of our FAVE shows watching on Nickelodeon growing up. It’s been 12 years since the sketch comedy show aired on our televisions. But seeing them all together again brought back so many memories.

All That castmates Kel Mitchell, Kenan Thompson, Lori Beth Denberg (remember her?!) and Josh Server joined forces on the black team to take out Nick and the red team. We’re sure they’ll bring a few laughs as "All That" certainly brought out their comedic sides.

With all the remakes and reboots, we wouldn’t be surprised if they were thinking about doing one. Would you watch?

Nelly Cops ANOTHER Sexual Assault Case, Attorney Responds

Posted by | Posted in Gurl Talk | Posted on 15-02-2018

 photo nellyagain.png

Nelly’s rep is speaking out after it was reported he’s being criminally investigated for a sexual assault case in England. Find out what they said and more inside…

Nelly is back in the headlines…and not in a good way.

Another woman has come forward to reveal the “Country Grammar” rapper sexually assaulted her while he was on tour, following similar claims made by Monique Greene. You’ll recall, she said Nelly raped her on his tour bus in Seattle after his concert. He has denied all of her claims.

Nelly’s camp seems to be alluding this woman came forward after she saw Monique Greene “amend her suit for money.” Attorney Scott Rosenblum told TMZ:

"These allegations arose after Ms. Green amended her suit for money to include a reference to these claims. The fact that the police are investigating these claims is not new information and Nelly welcomes a thorough investigation. Nelly is confident that once investigated, these claims will be determined to be disingenuous."

The St. Louis native is being investigated by Essex Police when a woman came forward with sexual assault accusations aimed at the rapper. She told police Nelly sexually assaulted her on December 5th after his show at Cliffs Pavilion in Essex.

According to the docs, Nelly allegedly took the woman and her friends to his dressing room and he then led her alone into a room next door. She claims he dropped his pants and began masturbating in front of her. Then, he reportedly grabbed her top whil trying to pull it off.

She had specifics about how he allegedly tried to make her give him fellatio. She said he put his right hand on the back of her head and his left hand on her shoulder, pushed her head down in the direction of his erect penis. He allegedly was trying to put it in her mouth. Things went even more left when she allegedly tried to kiss her as she ran out the door. He allegedly called her a “c*nt” as she ran out the door.

A mess.

Earlier this month, Monique Green, the first woman to accuse Nelly of rape, asked the judge for an injunction against the rapper and his penis. She asked the judge to demand he does NOT do to other women what she claims he did to her. Monique decided to drop pursuing criminal charges and is suing him in civil court instead. Nelly plans to countersue.

Sheesh.
