The “Power” cast linked up for cocktails to celebrate season 4’s debut. Meanwhile, Logan Browning stepped out for the “Dear White People” L.A. screening in a stunning look. Peep the flicks inside…
LaLa Anthony is still pushing through work obligations despite her news about her separating from her husband Carmelo Anthony being in the headlines.
Yesterday, the YBF chick linked up with her “Power” co-stars Rotimi, a pregnant Naturi Naughton, Lela Loren and Joseph Sikora to toast it up with the media at an event held at Catch NYC to celebrate the upcoming 4th season.
It was announced “Power” season 4 will be returning to our television screens on June 25th (on LaLa's birthday) and we, like everyone else, can not WAIT.
How cute is Naturi and her bump in this orange frock?
After announcing her pregnancy, Naturi dished that her “Power” family has been really supportive.
Notably missing was Omari Hardwick. It seems he’s currently working on the set of another project:
Peep the "Power" season 4 trailer below:
At another YBF event...
Last night, Logan Browning worked her magic on the carpet for the ‘Dear White People’ L.A. screening at Downtown Independent. The YBF actress, who stars in the new Netflix series, strutted her stuff in a red two-piece MASSACHI ensemble accessorized with a Tyler Ellis clutch.
On the carpet, she linked up with the cast to snap a few fun selfies posed it up in the photobooth:

Treach unleashed a harsh verbal lashing against his ex-wife/rapper Pepa on social media. And he took it to a whole new level of disrespect. Find out what he said and how Pepa responded inside…
Naughty By Nature’s Treach hopped on social media to air out his frustration with his ex-wife Pepa. The rapper went on a harsh tirade aginst Pepa, calling her everything but a child of God over what she wrote in a tell-all book and the treatment of their children. The "O.P.P." rapper is also not pleased with how Pep treats his daughter Egypt Criss on the reality show "Growing Up Hip Hop."
We’re not exactly sure what set him off today, being that Pepa released her book “Let’s Talk About Pep” back in 2008. However, she did put up a promo post on Instagram to let her fans know that Amazon had restocked the book and urged them to grab a copy earlier this month:
Maybe he just got around to reading it. Who knows. What we do know is he's mad and his amount of chill is on zero. Peep his social media posts below:
Meanwhile, Pepa appears to be unbothered by it all:
Did he take it too far?

Ja Rule had anticipated on throwing one of the most LIT festivals of the year. But, it all came tumbling down and social media is dragging him for it. Catch up on what went down inside…
Folks are dubbing Ja Rule a scam artist after his inaugural Fyre Festival went down the sh*t hole.
The Fyre Festival, founded by Ja Rule and tech entrepreneur Billy McFarland, was hyped up on social media to be one of the hottest festivals of the year. It was described as a “cultural moment created from a blend of music, art, and food” and it was supposed to be this huge extravaganza that would take over a private island in the Bahamas.
It was supposed to be a fun-filled and relaxing event for rich millenials to enjoy activities like kayaking and yoga on the Islands of the Exumas. The festival was set to run over two weekends like Coachella, but it was nothing of the sort.
Tickets started at $1,000 and went up to $12,000 (some sites reporting even more) and festivalgoers were told they would be partying it up VIP style with celebrities like reality star/model Kylie Jenner and model Bella Hadid. Had they paid attention to the fine print, they may have seen these celebrities were only attached to promote the festival with no contractual obligation to attend.
They were also promised performances by G.O.O.D. Music artists (like Tyga), Migos, Lil Yachty, Blink 182 and more.
Well, when festivalgoers got on the island they quickly learned it wasn’t going to be anything like it had been hyped up to be. Apparently tents were falling over, transportation was provided via a school bus, the food was NOT up to par and they ran out of drinking water.
Here’s what the scene looked like:
So Fyre Fest is a complete disaster. Mass chaos. No organization. No one knows where to go. There are no villas, just a disaster tent city. pic.twitter.com/1lSWtnk7cA

One festivalgoer described what it was like when he finally got on the festival grounds, sharing, "The tents had no floors, it was just dirt. No beds and port-a-potties. Everyone's luggage was being held in these 20-foot shipping containers. It got to a point where Billy McFarland was standing on a table in the middle of a field trying to direct people. I had to physically fight my way to the cargo containers to get my luggage, which they had been holding. I then tried getting a hotel room but every hotel was booked out because there is a separate festival going on for locals. So there isn't anywhere else to stay."
Twitter was quick to attack when folks at the festival started tweeting out their experiences:
The people who scammed rich people into paying 12K for a tent and a cheese sandwich should be awarded the Medal of Freedom. #FyreFestival

After the social media backlash, Fyre Festival took to their official Twitter account to call off the festival:
Due to unforeseen and extenuating circumstances, Fyre Festival has been fully postponed (con't)
— Fyre Festival (@fyrefestival) April 28, 2017
After assessing the situation this morning and looking at best options for our guests, we cannot move forward as we hoped we could (con't)

At this time, we are working tirelessly to get flights scheduled and get all travelers home safely

Ja Rule even took to his Twitter to apologize to everyone:

What a train wreck.
Well, we've learned a lesson here. Don't believe everything you see on Instagram.
Phaedra Parks and Apollo Nida are STILL married after the first judgment was thrown out. But, Phaedra wants Apollo to know that prenup will still be in enforced in the new filing. Deets inside…
Phaedra Parks THOUGHT her divorce from Apollo Nida was final, but she was sadly mistaken when the judge threw it out due to a number of things, including the misspelling of her estranged husband’s name. On the "Real Housewives of Atlanta," she was quick to share with her bestie Porsha Williams she was officially a single woman.
So now they have to do it all over again. But, the Southern Belle is seriously concerned about the prenup being enforced in the new filing, which Apollo signed a few days before they tied the knot in 2009. Of course, she’s not trying to shell out any alimony, so she filed new paperwork requesting the prenup to be enforced.
In docs, obtained by TMZ, Phaedra says they both agreed to waive their right to alimony ... meaning he shouldn't get a dime in spousal support when the divorce is final. She also claims they agreed how to divide their assets when they signed on the dotted line.
Phaedra thinks it's simple -- the prenup should control who gets to keep what, and doesn't want to leave things up to the judge ... as Apollo requested.
And she really sticks it to him ... saying the fact his assets have plummeted is his own doing because of his criminal activity. Apollo's serving prison time for money fraud.
Let’s see how this round plays out. Y'all know Phaedra isn't trying to give Apollo (and his new fiancee) any of her coin.

Diddy and the Bad Boy Family reunited once again to hit the stage at the Tribeca Film Festival to celebrate a new documentary that will chronicle their early days in the music biz. Stroll down memory lane inside…
Everything that went down behind-the-scenes at Bad Boy Entertainment is about to be told in an upcoming documentary titled Can’t Stop, Won’t Stop: A Bad Boy Story.'
Last night, the film was screened at the 2017 Tribeca Film Festival and the entire Bad Boy Family came together to celebrate at the Beacon Theater.
The premiere included a concert that featured artists from the iconic label and Lil Kim had everyone on their feet rapping lyrics from her classic tracks.
Lil Kim and Faith Evans, who is dubbed as the First Lady of Bad Boy, have certainly come a LONG way. It was all love between the queens on stage last night. And it was definitely a good look.
Mase even stepped out in the spotlight to rock the stage alongside Diddy and the Bad Boy Family.
Laurieann Gibson, who was Bad Boy’s director of choreography, also made an appearance on stage with Diddy’s sons Justin and Christian Combs. As you all know, Christian aka King Combs is following in his father’s footsteps and working on creating his own lane in the music industry under his father's record label, of course.
Stroll down memory lane with the Bad Boy crew below:
On the carpet...
Through trials and tribulations, it's still all love in the Bad Boy Family. We see you Carl Thomas!
Diddy had his on-again girlfriend Cassie on his arm as his date for the event. Take that, take that.
Diddy’s ex, Kim Porter, was also in the mix, posing it up in a black leather dress, to see her son rock out on stage.
The cool kids! DIddy's sons Justin and Christian hit the carpet before they made their way on stage.
Faith slayed the jumpsuit game in a piece that showed off her curves. Looking good Faith. By the way, she's gearing up to release a collaborative album with her late husband The Notorious B.I.G. titled The King & I. It's set to drop May 19th.
She wouldn’t be Lil Kim if she wasn’t doing the most. The self-proclaimed Queen of Rap struck a pose on the carpet in a white lace one-piece with a tulle train and thigh high laced up boots.
Several Bad Boy artists also hit the carpet before the show, including rappers Mase and French Montana, singer Carl Thomas, and Laurieann Gibson:
These are some interesting ensembles here. We wonder if they were sharing styling secrets.
Diddy's longtime friend/supermodel Naomi Campbell showed up to support.
Nick Cannon and his turban made a cameo on the carpet. In case you missed it, see how the former "America's Got Talent" host shaded Nicki Minaj and her booty HERE.
Celebrity stylist June Ambrose was styling in prints on the carpet.
Hip Hop pioneer Fab 5 Freddy was also in the mix for another Bad Boy reunion.
It's Bad Boy for life!
After the show, there was an afterparty and everyone was LIT:
So, who's ready to see this documentary? We sure are. Can’t Stop, Won’t Stop: A Bad Boy Story is set to drop on June 25th, exclusively through Apple Music.

Former First Lady Michelle Obama was busy dropping gems during her first post-White House speech. She is also cooking up something special for college signing day. Deets inside…
Days after her husband/former President Barack Obama returned to the limelight, former First Lady Michelle Obama makes her first post-White House appearance.
FLOTUS hit the stage for a conversation at the AIA Conference on Architecture 2017 yesterday in Orlando, FL. And she’s looking well rested and beautiful. Those much-needed vacations just gave her more of that glow that we love.
And her fashion is still A1.
The 53-year-old -- above alongside AIA Executive Vice President Robert A. Ivy and AIA President Thomas Vonier -- rocked a black, white and beige Lafayette 148 NY for her first public speaking engagement.
Mrs. Obama opened up about closing the gender gap in the workforce, explaining women need to start asking for what we need instead of accepting what’s given to us.
“If you have leverage, you have to push for the women who don’t,” she said. “We have to start asking for what we need, and then we need to employers to be more open to what work-life balance can actually look like.”
She continued, “It’s not easy and it’s never going to be. The one thing I can say to working mothers out there: Don’t beat up on yourselves. What you are doing is hard, and we still don’t live in a society that supports it.”
FLOTUS also shot down the notion of running for political office…again.
“Politics is tough, and it’s hard on a family. I wouldn’t ask my children to do this again because when you run for higher office, it’s not just you, it’s your whole family. Plus, there’s just so much more we can outside of the office, because we won’t have the burden of political baggage.”
We're definitely not mad at her for putting her family first.
On Inauguration Day, she revealed she wanted to cry, but she fought back tears because she didn’t want to send out the wrong message. "I didn't want to have tears in my eyes because people would swear I was crying because of the new president.”
Peep a clip from her speech below:
In other news...
Mrs. Obama is cooking up something special for College Signing Day! Mrs. Obama will be teaming up with MTV to celebrate hundreds of high school students pursuing higher education. We all know Mrs. O is passionate about education, so it comes as no surprise that she's continuing the work she started while in the White House.
She'll be front and center at this year's event, which will be held at New York City's Public Theater on May 5th with hundreds of NYC high school students. In the clip, she says, "You are working to create a life you can be proud of. And I want you to know I'm rooting for you every step o the way. Trust me, you've got this."
Peep the full clip above.
We’ve rounded up candids of Shemar Moore, Amber Rose, Draya and Skai Jackson hitting the party scene in L.A. Check them out inside…
It’s always a party in L.A. and the YBF celebs stay in these streets.
Even when it’s not a party, it’s a party. Like, when Shemar Moore hit the streets and gave us all a surprise. The actor, who’s currently shooting for "S.W.A.T.," stopped by celeb hotpot CATCH restaurant last night.
As he was leaving the venue, photogs caught up with him and that’s when he pulled his shirt up and showed off his toned abs. Yep, he’s still fit AF.
He's single too, if any of you were wondering.
Amber Rose got decked out in a mini pink bodycon with feathers to party it up at Warwick nightclub in L.A. last night.
No, the guy behind her (with the same hairstyle) isn’t her new boo thang. It’s her bodyguard.
We’re surprised her new ‘friend’ Odell Beckham Jr. wasn’t with her since they were joined at the hip in Coachella.
Also hitting the streets....
Draya recently made it to her goal weight of 120lbs, so she hit stepped out to celebrate. The Mint Swim owner, styling in a black Alexander Wang jumpsuit, made her way to harper x Harper's BAZAAR May Issue Event held at Mama Shelter in West Hollywood.
The new mom again has been hitting the gym hard and eating right to reach her target weight. And all of her hard work paid off. Not that she needed to lose any more weight in the first place, but we all know how it is when we want to reach that magical number.
Draya's homie Julissa Bermudez was also at the event and they had some fun in the Sephora booth:
Also at the party...
Disney cutie Skai Jackson looked flawless in her pink SELF-PORTRAIT frock and multi-colored Christian Louboutin pumps at the event.
Pittsburgh rapper Jimmy Wopo raps a disgusting lyric about rape on a recently released track and he uses a Kobe Bryant reference to get his point across. More inside…
There’s an up and coming rapper out of Pittsburgh named Jimmy Wopo. And he has us giving him the uber side eye over a controversial lyric in one of his new songs.
The 20-year-old seems to have a fascination with NBA icon Kobe Bryant. He titled the song in question “Black Mamba” and referenced Kobe’s name in a lyric about rape.
He raps, “ She act like she want it but won't f*ck me/Imma rape her like Kobe"
Ugh! So none of his handlers saw an issue with this line?
He’s referencing Kobe’s sexual assault case that was eventually dropped due to the victim deciding not testify in court.
Of course, social media is dragging him for it. So, his manager, Taylor Maglin, hopped on Facebook to defend him:
Take a listen at the 30-second mark below:
We're SO over rappers having NO regard for anything other than money and a-b-c rap. Thoughts on the lyric?

Nick Cannon fired off some shots at his ex wife’s nemesis Nicki Minaj while guest co-hosting on the “Wendy Williams Show” today. Find out what he said about Nicki and what he confirmed about the twins’ birth inside….
Nick Cannon has never been one to bite his tongue. Y’all heard his extra candid podcast with TheYBF.com a few months ago. He didn’t sugarcoat ish.
Today, he appeared on the “Wendy Williams Show” to guest co-host for the entire show and he sat down on the couch with Wendy to answer some burning questions about his relationship with his ex-wife Mariah Carey. He even dished about walking away from “America’s Got Talent.”
The “Wildin’ Out” host also hopped in the hot seat where Wendy asked him questions about his ex-wife’s nemesis.
“If you had the chance, would you hook up with Nicki anyway?,” Wendy asked.
“Is this pre the booty dropping? Is this bubbly booty Nicki or after the booty drop?,” Nick asked Wendy.
“The booty drop!,” Wendy chimed in.
“Oh, naw. I can’t do that then. If she go and get it fixed, then call me Nicki,” he responded.
Oh, he also confirmed that Mariah had him play her track “Fantasy” when their twins, Roc & Roe, were being delivered. By the way, they turn six in a few days.
Peep his full interview below where he confirmed if he’s still sleeping with Mariah, fatherhood, his failed relationship with singer Chilli and more:
Gotta love when Nick keeps it 100.

Heineken has a new ad that tackles political issues the right way. Pepsi, take note. Check it out inside…
Who knew beer could bring us all together?
Heineken sure did. And they unveiled a new commercial that perfectly tackles the current political issues in our world, unlike Pepsi with their tone deaf Kylie Jenner “fights oppression” ad.
In Heineken’s “World Apart” clip (created by Publicis London), it shows how we all have things in common no matter our political views. Two strangers with totally different political opinions are put together to participate in an experiment. They are given instructions to build a bar.
They form a bond while building the bar, and once they’re done, they’re told to watch a video. In the video, recordings of their opinions about certain issues are displayed and things obviously get uncomfortable. They are then presented with the choice to leave or talk it out over a beer. Each group decides to chat over a beer and they soon realize open dialogue caused them to form new friendships, despite their polar opposite stances on certain issues.
They get it!
Why won’t they let Meghan Markle be great? Now, media outlets are digging up information about her family and are saying it could hurt her chance at becoming a royal princess. More inside…
Y’all know we’ve been championing for Meghan Markle to become a royal princess. But some folks just do not want to see her be great.
RadarOnline did some snooping and found out her niece could be the reason she will never become a royal princess. Why? Apparently, Meghan’s 18-year-old niece, Noel Rasmussen, is a Satanist and a self-proclaimed leader of a Nazi organization.
The site got their hands on writings supposedly written by her niece where she graphically fantasizes about torture, self-harming and making deals with the devil.
In one letter she wrote, “Satan, I sold my soul to you ... but I would like to negotiate one more deal, since you have my soul." She continued, "Can you please, please, please, please make my girlfriend, be my girlfriend for? And have her and I be happy with each other, stay faithful and never be separated in any way? Please, that's all I want."
It’s reported Noel had “Nazi memorabilia all over her bedroom” and went into a “fit of rage” when her mom, Markle’s half-sister, Samantha Grant, tried to intervene.
“This could be the breaking point for Harry,” a source told the site. “There’s absolutely no way he can associate himself with Meghan’s family after this. It’s extremely troubling and puts their whole relationship in jeopardy!”
Do you think this revelation will cause some drama for Meghan, Prince Harry and the royal family?
By the way, those rumors about Meg being pregnant are NOT true.
Life comes at you fast. Instagram model Jena Frumes spilled her heart out on Twitter after NFL baller Antonio Brown apparently left her for his pregnant baby mother. Get it all inside…
Instagram model/"Wildin' Out" model Jena Frumes is spilling hurt tea about her failed relationship with Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown. Apparently, they were in a relationship, but when Antonio posted up a family flick with his pregnant sons’ mother Chelsie Kyriss this week, it seems their relationship is now over.
He posted the picture below with the caption, “Behind every strong man is a strong woman #Grateful #CallGod @chelsie @auto @alikingbrown”
The NFL baller has four kids. He has two sons, Ali and Autonomy, with Chelsie and two children with another woman. And he’s currently expecting another bundle of joy with Chelsie. Chelsie made her pregnancy announcement last week, right after Jena posted a picture of herself with Antonio at an NBA game.
We’re not sure if Antonio told Jena (who used to date Nick Cannon) he decided to go back to his sons’ mother, but it seems she may have found out the relationship was DUNZO after peeping Chelsie’s post. Yikes.
Once she realized she and Antonio are no longer together, she hopped on Twitter to blast him for using her as a PR stunt to make Chelsie mad. Peep her tweets below:
Needless to say, Jena, who stars in Jeremih's new "I Think Of You" video, has erased all pictures of Antonio on her IG account.

Tamar Braxton is getting extra personal on her new track "My Man." Get it inside...
We all know the story of Daddy Braxton "dipping it low and spreading it wide" all over town while he was married to Ms. Evelyn. Now that the Braxton family is confronting their issues on this new season of "Braxton Family Values," including Tamar, Trina, Toni, Towanda and Traci's stepmother (who was originally the mistress) coming out from hiding, Tamar felt like she could sing about everything that went down.
Now that she's no longer on EPIC and has launched her own label Tamartian Land Records, Tamar is dropping her first track with her new venture.
She used an old pic of her mom and dad, and sings about the familial drama.
When people questioned whether her mom would be here for this, Tamar responded with why she did the song:
So... here is the thing this is NOT about what I'm selling cause it's NEVER been about that for me!! It's about what we ALL have been through and how we all can/ have/ WILL overcome things. No matter what side of the coin you are on,take your responsibility in it. No one is REALLY guilty of love.. but we are ALL guilty of HURT!!

A spokesperson for Barack Obama had to check some folks who are up in arms over the former president getting paid $400,000 for speech. As if he's the only former President whose gotten a check for speaking. Get the deets inside…
Former president Barack Obama JUST stepped in the limelight again and folks are creating drama already.
So here’s why folks are mad. Mr. Obama is set to make a speech at a health care conference in September and he’s set to be paid $400,000 from a Wall Street company, Cantor Fitzgerald (a trading and investment firm). Some feel like the speaking fee undermines everything he believes in as he's criticized the excessive purse strings of wall street before.
We guess folks forgot so did every President, like Reagan, took MILLIONS from them post-Presidency for speaking engagements. Sounds like they want Obama to be "special" and not get what he's due.
Obama’s spokesman Eric Schultz is defending his speech, saying Obama decided to speak at the event because health care changes are important to him. And he noted that No. 44 raised more money from Wall Street than any candidate in history.
The statement reads:
“He recently accepted an invitation to speak at a health care conference in September, because, as a President who successfully passed health insurance reform, it’s an issue of great important to him. With regard to this or any speech involving Wall Street sponsors, I’d just point out that in 2008, Barack Obama raised more money from Wall Street than any candidate in history --- and still went on to successfully pass and implement the toughest reforms on Wall Street since [President Franklin D. Roosevelt].”

As the nation's first black President and now PRIVATE CITIZEN, this man deserves at least triple that amount. Just saying.
THEY just won’t let out POTUS be great!
