Ariana Grande, known as “The Voice” of her generation was invited to Washington D.C., to sing for the In Performance at the White House: Women of Soul concert series. The beautiful songstress, also known as Cat on Nickelodeon’s Sam & Cat, tackled Whitney Houston’s I Have Nothing in front of President Obama, and First Lady Michelle Obama. Right by her side to console the nervous singer before her performance was Patti LaBelle with a warm embrace. Can you imagine being the youngest singer in a room full of great talent, having Patti LaBelle give you her blessing? What a moment! Ariana Grande definitely showed her age when she “what’s up” the first family, but she ended her set with a strong vocal performance:
Mr. President, Mrs. Obama…What’s up? How are you? Good to see ya. It’s good…is it all good? Alright, good.
Performers of the night included, Melissa Etheridge, Janelle Monae, Jill Scott, Tessanne Chin of The Voice, Ariana Grande, Patti LaBelle, as the R-E-S-P-E-C-T honoree of the night Aretha Franklin. Being President has its privileges! Man I can’t wait to see Jill Scott’s performance!
Naomi Campbell has been seen all over the place rocking a new do. Naomi is sporting an Afro wig, and it looks good on her, IMO. She has been making her rounds promoting the new season of The Face premiering March 5th on Oxygen.
Naomi Campbell and this new Afro unit have been seen on The View, The Graham Norton Show, and apparently Naomi has had some time to hang with NeNe Leakes, too.
Ms. Campbell is kind of giving us Lauryn Hill from back in the day with this wig. There isn’t much Naomi can’t wear or pull it off. Check out more photos of Naomi Campbell, NeNe Leakes and the wig…
First off let me just say, I love me some Matthew Mcconaughey from the moment I first heard his name. Then to find out he plays the bongos naked while smoking weed, made me adore him even more. Then I find out he likes women of color, too. Woo! Sorry, I’m so off subject here. We’re suppose to be discussing this beautiful acceptance speech (below) from this FAHN man:
Last night Matthew Mcconaughey won an Oscar for Best Actor for his role in Dallas Buyers Club, a movie about AIDS patients in 1985 working around the US system to get access to AZT, a drug banned by the FDA during US clinical trials, yet available across the border in Mexico for experimental treatment. Matthew specifically played a redneck, named Ron Woodroof, who was both racist and homophobic,
Lupita Nyong’o entered the awards season with a splash. Due to the critically acclaim success of her first movie role as Patsy in 12 Years A Slave, Lupita is gracing the red carpet as Hollywood’s it girl; bringing a new sense of beauty to the forefront. Lupita Nyong’o is happily carrying the torch for women of color as she graciously explained in her acceptance speech after winning the Best Breakthrough Performance Award during the 7th Annual Essence Black Women In Hollywood Luncheon.
Lupita talks about learning to love the skin she’s in over time, after praying to God when she was younger to make her pale. Thankfully, God already knew she was beautiful in her “night-shade skin”. Check out the full speech below:
Kim Kardashian must not be to “bound” by Kanye West because she agreed to accompany Richard Lugner, an Austrian businessman, to the Vienna Annual Opera Ball for $500,000. I know $500,000 is a lot of money, but Kim is worth several million, and she’s getting engaged to a man also worth several million, so why is she pimping herself out to this dirty old man for some coins?
Well, her little indecent proposal backfired, when Kim got more than what she bargained for from the event…
I guess Kim thought she would just take the money, and run, but it turns out Mr. Lugner was trying to get his money’s worth, causing the reality star to flee the engagement early. Kim claims the billionaire kept trying to touch her and get her alone in a room. He DID pay $500,000, so what exactly did she expect? After the old man complained that Kim was annoying him the whole night but not falling the script, Kim ran to TMZ to tell her side of the story which included black face, racism, and the n-word.
Rumors have been circulating that Robin Thicke isn’t the one who wanted the separation from his wife, Paula Patton, and that he’s been trying to do everything in his power to keep his marriage together. I have a few suggestions, like stop embarrassing your wife with these groupies, but I digress…
Turns out the rumors are true, Robin Thicke really is fighting to keep Paula Patton by his side. The blue-eyed crooner tells the crowd at the GMU Patriot Center in D.C. that he wants this old thing back before singing his hit, Lost Without U.
For those of you who don’t know my wife and I got separated a few days ago. Yea, but I want y’all, I want everyone here to know…that I’m trying to get my girl back…She told me you go out there and tell them the truth, ya know. You tell them that you’re trying to get her back. She’s a good woman, you know.
Awwwwww! As you can tell the women are eating it up, and this may actually increase the groupie count. *sigh*
