The internet has been buzzing all day ever since the news of Zendaya Coleman being confirmed as the lead role for the new Aaliyah biopic, which is set to air on Lifetime. The 17 year old took to twitter to express how much Aaliyah has been an influence on her career and how she hopes to do the late R&B songstress justice. 106 & Park co host Keisha Chante was also another candidate for the role after she revealed through her social media that she had auditioned for the role. Prior to her job over at BET she has auditioned to play Aaliyah in other projects, but it looks like Zendaya will be taking it this time around.

“Happy Father’s Day,” from Ciara. The Body Party singer shared a picture of her and fiance Future’s son for the first time with Instagram fans this past Sunday (June 15). “Hey Dad aka Big @Future. Baby Future Loves You. #HappyFathersDay,” tweeted Ciara along with the picture post.
Across the internet, I have seen posts talking about Andrea & R Kelly’s daughter, Jaya (13), stepping out as a transgendered boy named, Jay. My first thoughts were that this is a very private moment, and that kids are just really off limits. Thus the reason I don’t even talk about Blue Ivy’s hair and this doggone petition. Beyonce taking the ‘I woke up like this’…a little too far…Thou canth with y’all.
Jay who is going to ninth grade is speaking out, and it’s a topic that he doesn’t mind discussing publicly. During a Q&A session on Ask.fm, Jay talks openly about being a FTM transgender. It is a little hard for me to wrap my mind around because he’s still so young, but while reading the thread, I see that there are a lot of kids going through the same thing. More importantly though, I can’t help, but support Andrea’s response to the situation. She tweets:
We knew that Michael Jackson’s kids were living large, but we didn’t realize they were living this large. The New York Post reports that Prince, Paris, and Blanket spend nearly $8 million a year on pleasure and business ventures.
“These things that they’re doing they are mostly paying for themselves, with their own money,” says a source close to the family. “They also get $15,000 to $20,000 every month just in walking-around money.”
Lil Kim, 39, or should I say Kimberly D. Jones has given birth to a baby girl at Hackensack University Medical Center in New Jersey. The baby’s name according to ET is Royal Reign. Miss Royal comes into the world weighing 6 lbs 5 oz, and measuring 19.5 inches long. Congrats to Lil Kim and her boyfriend, Mr. Papers. Can’t wait to see the first pics of baby Royal.
I’m still a little shocked that Queen Bee is a mom.
Justin Bieber is deeply apologetic after a video of him repeating a racist joke has surfaced. Bieber was reportedly telling a friend about the joke, and used the N-word while relaying the offensive comment at the time.
In the footage, Justin tells a friend about a joke he heard that has the N-word as its punchline. The friend that Justin is speaking with advises the pop singer to refrain from using the racial slur, but Justin blurts it out anyway while laughing and being amused by the joke. Although the video is five years old, some still find the comments coming from a then-15-year-old Bieber to be highly offensive…
