This really isn’t news, is it? But TMZ confirms that Karrueche Tran broke up with Chris Brown before he even had inappropriate relations with the female staff member at rehab. Chris Brown and Karrueche had been apart at least a month before the break-up rumors surfaced. Karrueche called it quits after finding jump-off text messages from several different women while Chris Brown was in rehab. Since then Chris Brown has been acting out. Sounds like deja-vu, hun? Text messages from groupies is obviously his trigger.
I use to defend Karrueche, but honestly how naive can one person be. I thought she was under the impression that Chris Brown was cheating, occasionally at least, but when he was ready to commit he would with a ring. Had no clue she actually thought he was faithful or ready; he was in rehab for a reason. It’s been right there in front of us all for years. Well hopefully this time, she realizes love doesn’t behave like that, and move on
Kandi Burruss and Todd Tucker have reportedly set a date to marry, April 4th. The reality TV couple will follow NeNe and Greg Leakes and say their “I dos” in front of Bravo’s cameras. Although Mama Joyce still isn’t happy about Kandi choosing to marry Todd, she will be there to support her daughter, so she says:
I am not excited but I am going. It’s not my wedding. If she is happy then I am happy for her. If that’s who she wants to marry then I’m happy. As long as she is happy I am happy. Kandi says she is happy so I just have to go by what she says. I’m not going to stand up when they ask if anyone has any objections. I don’t have anything to say. Everyone knows how I feel.
With all the drama going on this season, I honestly didn’t think they would make to down the aisle.
So Congrats to Kandi and Todd, if they can make through Mama Joyce, they can make it through anything! via Radar Online
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,
