Drake, I must admit, did a GREAT job as host of the 2014 ESPY Awards, in fact I think this year’s show was one of the best ESPY Awards to date. His opening jokes were funny, he finally got a kiss from Skylar Diggins, plus his skits created a buzz across social media one of which featured Chris Brown, and Blake Griffin.
Yes! The battle of the lights is finally over, Drake and Chris Brown have gone from bottle tossing beefs in the club to BFFs…And I Luv it.
Check out the skit below and watch as Blake Griffin and Chris Brown kidnap Drake to steal his hosting job at the ESPYs.

Actor Columbus Short can’t seem to avoid scandal as early Saturday morning he found himself in trouble with the law yet again. Dallas police arrested Short around 2 a.m. Saturday for public intoxication at Katy Trail Ice House, a restaurant and beer garden in Texas.
This arrest is proving to be just the ‘icing on the cake’ of a string or embarrassing and deplorable disputes with the law Columbus has spawned over the last year. If you recall, even Shonda Rhimes couldn’t find a way to save the actor as he was fired from her massively popular show, Scandal.
Back in April, Short’s wife accused him of trying to kill her with a knife. Tanee Short filed for both a restraining order, to keep him from her and their 2-year-old daughter, and for a divorce to end their nine-year marriage. Additionally, in March, the actor was arrested after being accused of punching a patron in a Los Angeles restaurant.
Short’s publicist declined comment Saturday evening. Here’s to hoping Columbus gets his act together asap!
Fantasia and her girls take a trip to Cancun to celebrate Fantasia’s 30th birthday. Instagram is filled with cakes by the pound as Phaedra, Kandi, Shekinah, and Fantasia show off their beach bodies. while dancing on a yacht to Chris Brown’s Loyal.
Also celebrating her birthday is stylist Shun Melson (pictured above with the blond hair and stripe bikini top). Noticeably missing from the photos is Apollo Nida, which may explain why Phaedra is really feeling Chris Brown’s Loyal on the yacht. Perhaps Apollo is at home taking care of the boys…#butthatsnoneofmybusiness. Check out the video below when you continue plus lots more pics…
