Kylie and Kendall Jenner got pretty cozy with the some of the most desired men in hip- hop  and R&B last night.

Chris Brown, Tyga and Trey Songz attended a house party last night and were joined by the ladies and a gang of pics of all the fun turned up on Instagram.

I’m still not exactly sure what these young ladies do besides party and “model”, but then again I’m still not completely clear on their sisters’ claim to fame either.

Looks like the young celebs had a ton of fun, but for Breezy’s sake not too much fun. Check  out the pics:

“YOLO Motherf**ker!”: Drake, Chris Brown And Blake Griffin Team Up For Hilarious ESPYs Skit

Blake Drake

We told you last week that despite their past beef (which included causing riotous fights inside of a NYC nightclub in 2012), Drake and Chris Brown have put their differences aside and were snapped working together in the studio. In fact, they’ve become so chummy since putting an end to their issues, that last night, the two teamed up for a skit for the ESPYs, which Drake was the host of.

In a very funny skit called “Drake vs Blake,” the egos of the rapper and Clippers star, Blake Griffin, went to head-to-head as a difference in opinion about a movie title they were pretending to collaborate on turned into a prank war. At one point in the skit, Drake is getting surgery and realizes that Griffin is the surgeon. But he surprises Drizzy by saying, “Oh I’m not the surgeon…he is.”

That’s when Brown popped up in surgical gear to say, “YOLO motherf**ker!” Once the skit ended (after a hilarious impression of Griffin by Drake), Brown made another appearance, but this time with Griffin to let the audience know that they’d kidnapped Drake and were taking over the awards. Not only was all of this funny, but it was actually quite heartwarming to see grown folks leave sour feelings behind so that they can work together to do big things. Who has time for all that drama anyway?

Check out the skit for yourself below. If you watched the ESPYs last night, what did you think of Drake as a host?

Wendy Williams On Rihanna: “You Do Her, Then You Take Your Penicillin.”

Wendy Williams

Honey, this is why I just cannot rock with Wendy Williams. As entertaining as I find her and as inspirational as her story is, I think she’s just mean. She picks and chooses which celebrities she’s going to defend and which she’s going to defame. I know some of y’all like the fact that she keeps it real but sometimes that realness is just messy for messy’s sake. Recently on her show, during her infamous hot topics segment, Wendy spoke about Chris and Drake burying the hatchet and appearing the studio together, leading many to believe they’re working on an album.

And you know what it is, when you mention Drake and Chris, you almost always have to mention Rihanna. She started by saying Drake told Chris that the fling he had with Rihanna… was just that, a fling. It wasn’t serious.

Here’s what Wendy had to say in response:

“I don’t think anyone but Chris has been serious about Rihanna ’cause Rihanna…don’t take this the wrong way because this is an observational observation. Rihanna is like you hit the skins and scram.

Well I didn’t make that up! She puts it out there. Like Rihanna is not girlfriend material. Am I wrong? Rihanna is the kind of girl she’s hot, she’s sexy. You do her, then you take your penicillin.

Let me get out of this while I can. Let’s move on.”

Come on. That’s far too much. And what’s so foul about it is that in one breath Wendy encourages women in their twenties (the current age group in which Rihanna now finds herself) to live their lives, be out and free and sexually expressive. But in another she shames Rihanna for essentially being dirty, in her opinion..

Can we just state as a matter of fact that Wendy doesn’t know Rihanna’s vagina?

Furthermore, let’s not pretend that both Drake and Chris Brown have not been out here. And neither one of them has ever attempted to keep it a secret. And yet I don’t recall anyone–specifically Wendy– calling either one of them dirty because of it.

Foul.

Take a look at the video below and let us know what you think about Wendy’s comments.

Is That A Conk? Chris Brown Debuts New Hair Style

July 15th, 2014 - By Veronica Wells

Chris Brown is known for switching up his hair. Hmm…kind of like Rihanna… But I digress. Whether he’s rocking platinum blond like Sisqo or gray like your grand daddy, he keeps us guessing…or scratching our heads. When recent images of Chris during his hearing surfaced, I noticed that, among other things, his hair had grown out quite nicely and homeboy was almost rocking curls.

And it looks like Chris has decided to go with that for a while. When he first got out we saw he styled it into a high top fade and today, he has it parted and combed over in a look that is all too reminiscent of Malcolm X’s fried, dyed and laid to the side days. If you’ve seen Spike Lee’s Malcolm X, you know Detroit Red went through all types of trauma to get his hair to lay right. Back in the day, even black men felt the pressure to straighten their strands or wear wigs in the case of Teddy Pendergrass in his early days with Harold Melvin and the Blue Notes.

Exhibit A:

And he wasn’t the only one. See James Brown, Sam Cooke etc. Black male entertainers had a bit of their own “big chop”/ “go natural” movement. 

We don’t know if Chris is using chemicals or if this is just some gel and water but take a look at what he calls a nod to the thirties and let us know if you’re feeling it.

 

What BreakUp? Chris Brown And Karrueche Silence Fall-Out Rumors

Earlier this week, rumors of another ugly breakup between Chris Brown and Karrueche Tran began to make their rounds on the Internet. Chris and Karrueche’s decision to remove any recent photos of each other from Instagram and Karrueche’s cryptic “moving on” messages. And then of course, there was that  intimate backshot of Karrueche wearing nothing but a bra and thong that Chris shared on his social media accounts. All signs seemed to point to a split between the two. However, now it appears that they  have either kissed and made up extremely quickly or they were never off to begin.

Madame Noire can confirm that the love birds were spotted together at Create nightclub on Hollywood Boulevard last night celebrating the official launch of the Hennessy V.S. limited edition bottle designed by artist Shepherd Farley. The two appeared very happy and drama free as they posed for a photograph (above) at the event. We doubt these two will be permanently splitting up anytime soon. Towards the end of last year, the stylist was criticized after discussing her unconditional love for Chris.

“It’s different,” explained Karrueche. “And its something that a lot of people won’t and will never understand, which is why I get so much flack and hate because you know looking from the outside in it looks messy. Nobody knows the real story, nobody knows what I went through so.”

Well, that’s that—for now at least.

Are Chris Brown And Drake Making Music Together?

Chris Brown And Drake Making Music Together

Several months ago, there were reports that Chris Brown and Drake had squashed their epic 2012 beef with one another that started whenpeople from their camps were seen throwing bottles in a Soho nightclub. Late last year, sources say Drake and his crew came out to see Brown perform at the iHeartRadio Music Festival in Las Vegas. And then afterward, they were backstage hugging, drinking and talking about collaborating with one another.

Apparently the mediator was music executive Abou Thiam, Akon’s brother and Tracee Ellis Ross’ rumored on-again, off-again boo.

And the proof that the two have ended the madness came in the form of an Instagram picture featuring both Drake and Chris is the studio together early this morning.

No word on whether they’ve actually worked on a track together or if they’re just kicking it but we’ll see.

If they do collaborate, we wonder if their common link will come up…

 

Have Chris Brown And Karrueche Broken Up Again?

Just a few months ago, the Internet was buzzing with rumors that Chris Brown proposed to Karrueche from prison. Now, not even a few months following his release, we’re hearing breakup rumors. Instagram lurkers have recently discovered that just after spending Independence Day together, both Chris and Karrueche took to the photo sharing site and erased all of the recent photos that they had posted of one another. Karrueche has also been posting subliminal messages about knowing when to let go—including a reshare of a Budha quote that she posted last December.

Strangely, just before their word of their rumored breakup began circulating, Chris shared a revealing photo of Karrueche lying in bed wearing a bra and thong set to his Instagram page—a gesture that seems a bit disrespectful if you ask us.  It’s also unclear what could’ve sent their relationship south so quickly. Last week at the BET Awards, Karrueche told us that she and Chris were in a very happy place.

“I’m just happy he’s home and that he’s not in that state of mind anymore,” she said. “We’re happy. You know, he’s working and I’m working. You know, right now we’re in a good place in our relationship.”

So far, representatives for Chris and Karrueche have yet to confirm or deny the rumors. But if things are off like they appear to be, it’ll probably only be a matter of time before the two are back together.

Thanks, But No Thanks: Celebs Who Passed on Reality TV Shows

Chris Brown just turned down BET’s offer for a reality show. And he’s not the only one who’s passed on a chance for TV time. Find out which one of your favorite celebrities will never do reality TV, and why.

Chrissy Tiegen and John Legend

The Networks have been begging this adorable twosome to do a reality show for years. But Chrissy told Cosmo that she was afraid they were too normal and boring to pull any ratings:

“I never wanted to go down that route. People think we’re friends with really famous people. We’re not, really. Most of our friends are bankers.”

We think these two could be underestimating their star power.

Why Is Chris Brown Repping The Bloods?

Chris Brown Repping The Bloods

Just weeks after he was released from jail and promised to get his life together, Chris Brown was in the club throwing up gang signs. Blood signs to be specific.

In a BET after party, probably before he was seen being carried out by a group of guys, someone captured a video of Brown throwing up a series of Blood affiliated gang signs. And judging by the fluidity of his finger movement, he’s not new to this. He even gave a shout out to a subset of the Bloods, the Fruit Town Piru. According to TMZ, Piru is a street in Compton where the first know Bloods gang was originally formed.

Chris has been  seen spray painting a wall in Hawaii with the Fruit Piru name and TMZ believes that he had several members of the gang living with him before he served his time.

Sigh.

Y’all know we want Chris to win but it seems like he’s hell bent on doing something different. But what do you think, are we making a big deal out of this for nothing or do you think this represents a bigger issue?

You can watch the video of him throwing up the signs in the club below.
