Ever since I heard the slowed beat of Ghost Town DJ’s “My Boo” drop, I instantly had Ciara’s latest single “Body Party” on repeat. I knew the video would feature her slithering and sliding in moves that would keep EMTs busy for weeks as women across the country blew out their backs and pulled hamstrings trying to imitate the moves for their men.
I wasn’t disappointed when Ciara scissored her legs in the air for boyfriend Future as they play out how they first met for the video, but it was like deja-vu as I saw her relationship slowly steal the spotlight from her first two singles. Is it me, or does something happen to a recording artist when they fall in love and choose to flaunt it in their work? After watching Ciara’s steamy video for “Body Party,” I couldn’t help but wonder if she’s risking the buzz she’s worked so hard to build back by allowing boyfriend, Future, to make so many appearance.
Mixing business and pleasure is a risky move. There’s something about when celebs turn the camera on to their personal lives that causes their careers and their relationships to fall apart. Here are a few celebs who might want to think about leaving their boo behind-the-scenes in the future.
J.Lo had a pretty good buzz going as a singer even if her “hits” were only heard in the clubs, but as soon as Ben Affleck took J.Lo from the block to the yacht in her Jenny From the Block vid, Jenny’s singing career went man down for a minute and she was left man-less and a little embarrassed. Not to mention Ben credited the cameo with almost ruining his career. And who can forget how clearly sprung she was on the track “Dear Ben,” in which she sings,” I love you, you’re perfect.” Well apparently the feelings weren’t mutual; Ben quickly married another Jennifer after their break up and made like 11 kids with her. Sting. Word of advice for the former fly girl: You can sing all the love songs you want about your boo, just don’t name them after him and throw said boo in all your videos.

Singer and actress Christina Milian, model Karrueche Tran and “Basketball Wives LA” star Draya Michele have lent their faces for the “Be You” anti-bullying campaign.

It seems as if every week a Hollywood star gives birth then pops up on a magazine cover or runway a few months later flaunting their slender frames and sleek abs. Although some women lose baby weight faster than others, here are 15 celebs that snapped back to their pre-baby bodies in no time.
Diva and R&B singer Mariah Carey shocked the world when she announced she married her husband rapper, actor and entertainer Nick Cannon. After struggling to conceive, the happy couple surprised everyone one more time when it was revealed that Carey was pregnant with twins. Once Monroe and Morocco were welcomed into the world, the “Butterfly” singer went to work right away to lose the baby weight. Because she gave birth via Cesarean, Carey was unable to exercise right away. The current “American Idol” judge signed on to be the spokesperson for Jenny Craig and ended up dropping 70 lbs. in six months. “I realize that 90 percent of losing weight is my diet,” Carey said in an interview with Shape magazine about how she lost the extra pounds.

Before these men and women were dominating our iPods and lives in general with good music, funny television and dramatic roles that brought us to tears (or made us mad), they were young’ns trying to get their big breaks on the big screen. In movies like The Wood and shows like As The World Turns, they were everywhere before they became stars. Let’s check out their beginnings…
And oh yeah, one or two are young adults…*Kanye shrug*
Christina Milian in The Wood
Before she was out in these streets singing about the freaky things you should keep on the low with Ja Rule and dipping it low and picking it up slow, Christina Milian was just a young lady with a big ‘ol head of hair, playing the dance partner of young Roland in The Wood. In her short role in the film, she gets upset by Roland and Slim’s nosy attention over Mike and Alicia finally getting to slow dance together. She eventually tells him, “Why don’t you go dance with her then!?” flips her loooong curly hair and makes a dramatic exit. Interesting, this sounds like a scene from most of Milian’s movies…I’m just saying.
How Adorable: Amber Rose and Wiz Khalifa Celebrate Their Baby Shower With Toccara, Christina Milian And More
Amber Rose and Wiz Khalifa celebrated the upcoming birth of their first child on Sunday evening in Los Angeles amongst their close-knit circle of friends, which included celebrities such as Christina Milian, Toccara Jones and Lola Monroe, who also recently announced her pregnancy. The blue themed shower looks like it was tons of fun with adorable finger foods, snacks, games and lots of laughs.
According to Necole Bitchie, the undeniably glowing 29-year-old model rocked a colorful Adidas Originals keyboard inspired maxi dress designed by Jeremy Scott as she mixed and mingled with her guests.
“Yay! The day has finally come! My baby shower!” the mom-to-be excitedly tweeted a little before her baby shower was set to begin.
It appears that this will not be the only thing the couple will be celebrating as Wiz recently shared with Hot 97′s Angie Martinez that he and Amber would be getting married soon and then celebrating their tying of the knot in an elaborate wedding ceremony after she has the baby.
This relationship has endured quite a bit of negativity from naysayers and skeptics since it’s inception, but their love seems undeniably real and they seem super happy together.
We’re really happy for Amber and Wiz and wish them all the best.

That’s Not What I Heard: Christina Milian Says Last Time She Checked Chris Brown And Karrueche Are Still A Couple
There’s something about seeing a woman ride for her homegirl that makes me smile deep down inside because loyalty is certainly difficult to find these days. If you frequent blogs or listen to any Hip Hop radio stations, you’re probably somewhat familiar with the Chris Brown-Rihanna-Karrueche Tran love triangle. Back in October Chris released a video expressing how much of a dilemma he was in because he loved two women. The video was preceded by a statement released by Brown which confirmed he was ending his relationship with Tran because he didn’t want his “friendship” with Rihanna to hurt her. Since then, Brown has been spotted with and rumored to still be seeing both women.
As you may know, singer and actress Christina Milian is good friends with Karrueche. During her recent visit to The Wendy Show, she was hit with a barrage of questions regarding Chris and Karrueche’s breakup and was even asked if Chris and Rih Rih will be having a secret wedding in Barbados on Christmas and whether or not Karrueche was Chris’s sidepiece. Here is what she had to say about it.
“From what I’ve always known, she’s his girlfriend and that is where it lies for me. I know, I see everything in the media and everything. I really don’t get into the details of it. But, I think everyone has their own life and how they deal with things. They have the right to handle it how they want. So, yeah she’s a sweetheart. I will tell you that. She’s a sweetheart and I think they make a great couple.”
Loving how it seems like regardless of how Christina personally feels about Chris and Karrueche’s relationship, she is going to cover her friend and not speak negatively to media outlets. Hopefully my girl Jen from “Basketball Wives” caught that lesson. I also hope that as a real friend Christina is being honest with Karrueche behind closed doors and telling her that she deserves better than what Chris is dishing out right now.
Check out the video on the next page. What do you think of how Christina handled Wendy’s questions?
It’s not often that we hear about a celebrity marriage lasting, and when one doesn’t we all sit and wait patiently for the nasty divorce settlements. With so much money and fame involved, it’s not uncommon for negotiations to get a little dirty, but in the end most of these ex-wives end up getting broke all.the.way.off. Though it’s never a happy thing to see a marriage end, we’re pretty sure some of these women dried their tears in dollar bills and ended up laughing their way to the bank. While love doesn’t cost a thing, divorces really do. Here are 14 of the biggest celebrity divorce settlements in our lifetime.
Some girls dream about that special sacred union since they’re very small; hopeful that one day they’ll be clad in a long white gown, adorned with jewels and flowers, and surrounded by a plethora of family and friends . This ceremony is hoped to be beautiful and magical, and the love between the two who are marrying is supposed to last forever.
One thing that Hollywood has made abundantly clear is that marriage is not meant for eternity, in fact, some marriages are over before the credits, on a feature length film, can roll.

Cheese! With big papa Snoop missing from this cute family photo, Corde, momma Shante, Cordell, and little Miss Cori put on their Kool-Aid smiles for an exclusive Broadus pic. Everyone looks cute, even though it would have been nice if Corde would have at least thrown on a shirt, but hey, whatever works!
Speaking of family photos, our girl Brandy, aka, B-Rocka, 33, took a very cute photo with her 10-year-old daughter, Sy’rai Smith. Taking from her mom’s fashion sense, Sy’rai rocked braids, including some adorable pink and white extensions we’re digging.
It’s fall, ya’ll! So with that, everybody is hitting the pumpkin patches and trying out the hay rides again, including Christina Milian and her little lady, Violet. The cutie patootie in her colorful floral dress and braided coily curls posed on top of a pumpkin and cheesed it up for the camera. Milian captioned the photo, “A pumpkin for my little pumpkin!”
And who needs models when you can get your kids to be in your ads? Diddy got his son Christian, his other “son” Quincy (Kim Porter and Al B Sure’s son), and model Tyson Beckford’s son, Jordan Beckford, to pose for the new fall Sean John ad. Aren’t they fresh?
And guess who just turned 8? The son of Lebron James, Lebron James Jr! Savannah Brinson posted this picture via Instagram of her son over the years. As she said in the caption, “Happy 8th Bday Jr! Wow time is flying by.” Doesn’t it always?
And here’s an up-to-date photo of “Jr.” hanging out at dinner with his family. Sounds like dad is proud: “Happy Bday again to my 8 year old young man Bronny. Love u son!!”
Adorable-ness all around!

Cuba has brought us a lot of great things, aside from the food and the Rumba though, it has also brought us fine fellas like Laz Alonso and classy sisters like Gina Torres. I was surprised to find that a great number of famous faces are of Cuban descent, and being that you and I both know you want to know who these faces include, here they are! Enjoy!
Everybody’s favorite chubby funny man (next to Bruce Bruce), is indeed a Cuban fella. While others were born to parents from the country, Love was actually born and lived for some time in Santiago de Cuba before moving to places like San Diego and Newark, NJ. He was actually born Langston Faizon Santisima to a father in the Navy, making him an army brat (hence all the moving around). You might not hear this brotha speak Spanish like that, or even see him break out the Rumba, but he’s indeed a Cuban brother.
