Kanye always said ”And when you get on he leave your A$$ for a white girl” in regards to black men, but he never mentioned black women.There are quite a few black women that have gained great success through music, acting and sports, but aren’t seen with black men romantically. Check out 15 women that love to date white men exclusively, or so it seems.
After Berry Gordy, Diana Ross hasn’t seemed to find another black man to date or marry. She married Robert Ellis Silberstein in 1971, the same year her oldest daughter was born. Although her real father was Berry Gordy, Diana failed to reveal that information until years later. She then divorced Silberstein in 1977 and married billionaire Arne Naess, Jr.
Here and there we spot Eve, performing and walking the red carpet, but rarely do we see her simply glowing. The rapper attended Catherine Malandrino’s Spring 2014 show on Tuesday wearing a green dress from the designer that we loved.
The air of the collection matched the demeanor of Eve who is currently wearing a honey brown shoulder length do’. To complete the two-tone look, she accented with gold bangles and black peep-toe booties. While the look is very feminize, Eve adds a certain edginess to it that’s authentic to her personality. In a nutshell, we love.

There are many times in our lives that we’ve done double-takes at the television screen for celebrities we haven’t seen or heard from in a while. “Where have you been?!” Some stars, who have so much potential, have come crashing down — or have remained stagnant — in their careers for some reason or another. But, we’re starting to see some fallen stars who are re-emerging into the spotlight and might possibly reclaim their spot on top. Here’s a list of celebs that we believe are poised for a come up–again.
Since Love & Hip Hop Atlanta made its reality TV debut on VH1, MiMi has been very vocal about her long-lived relationship with music producer baby daddy, Stevie J. But it was always something about her timeline that just never really added up. You see, according to MiMi, her relationship wit Stevie has been 15 years in the making. The problem is that Stevie has quite a few children, some who are under 15 years of age. Another problem is that his highly publicized relationship with rapper Eve overlaps that 15-year time period. To make things even more interesting, it’s common knowledge that Stevie’s infidelity played a large role in the demise of his relationship with the 34-year-old Philadelphia rapper.
Now, this sketchy timeline could mean two things:
1. MiMi was an interim girl, whom he entertained between relationships.
2. Stevie was cheating on Eve with MiMi.
Stevie surprisingly replied with a retweet, adding “baby Joseline” to the end.
Now that’s something I’d be interested in hearing MiMi’s response to. While it doesn’t seem totally unbelievable, Stevie J is known for trying to throw dirt on MiMi’s name.

Some of the best shows from the ’90s and early ’00s had everything. Good writing, great acting, and good looking men. These brothas brought some of our favorite characters happiness, drama, and a good time, and for us, they brought eye candy we were looking for on our favorite TV nights (Monday used to be THE day to watch TV on UPN back in the day!). So where have some of our favorite crushes gone? Let’s take a look shall we! Be warned, some have changed not necessarily for the worst…but let’s just say they’ve changed a lot.
Quinton “Q” Brooks played by Fredro Starr on Moesha
Now they knew damn well that “Q” didn’t look like nobody’s high school student. On for two seasons and occasionally returning, Q was Moesha’s longest relationship, and probably the one that brought her the most drama. Fredro Starr of the hip-hop group Onyx played this role, and had some serious acting experience previous to playing Q (Clockers anyone?). Afterwards, he kept acting in a little bit of everything, including roles in Save The Last Dance, playing gunman Bird on The Wire, and still focusing on his music. He recently had beef with DMX of all people. As for what he’s looking like, these days, he looks okay…
“I Never Thought I Would Date Outside My Race”: Eve Talks Dating “Ridiculous Dudes,” DMX And Female Rap Beef
Covering the newest issue of Rolling Out, rapper Eve is opening up more about the state of her relationship, why she’ll always have love for DMX, and why every female rapper is not going to be everybody’s cup of tea in the business.
Eve spoke further about her current relationship with Maximillion Cooper. Before they met, she said that she found herself dating too many ridiculous dudes, and at some point, she had to question what SHE was doing wrong to attract them:
“My perspective on men has definitely changed. I’ve dated some ridiculous dudes. For women, if you are frustrated and keep attracting the same type of dude over and over again, it is not the dude, it is you. That is something I had to learn. I needed to figure out who I was and what I wanted before I attracted the guy I needed to be with.”
“I never thought I would date outside of my race. I never thought it would seriously be something that I considered because of where we come from. Interracial dating is still not as prevalent in our community. But when I met him, it was something that was so familiar. We recognize each other in a deeper way. If somebody is treating me the way I’m supposed to be treated, who cares what race he happens to be? It took a while for us to get comfortable, but when things got serious, we went for it. When we first started having pictures taken of us, I got so many negative tweets. It shocked me. I wondered where all of that hatred was coming from. It annoys me because America is a great country. But there are a lot of hypocrites. Would you rather me date someone, like my ex [Stevie J], just because he’s black? Or would you rather me be happy?
She also opened up about other women in hip-hop. Rolling Out pointed out that Eve had to do battle with some of Nicki Minaj’s fans on Twitter not too long ago, after publicly stating that Nicki wasn’t “her cup of tea”:
“I’m not everyone’s cup of tea and Nicki’s not everyone’s cup of tea,” she says. ”That’s life. You’re not going to listen to every single artist that comes out. But obviously, Nicki has a huge fan base and she’s doing her thing. So what does one person’s opinion mean? I think people just take stuff too far. Some of the new girls that are coming up are dope. Azealia Banks has a lot of cute wordplay. It’s a new generation and it’s cool with me.”
And of course, she had to give her two cents on Dark Man X…aka, DMX and his struggles:
“DMX is my dog. He’s the most special person I’ve ever met, honestly. It’s unfortunate that he’s going through those things. The last time I saw him was when we did the BET Hip-Hop Awards cypher. Anytime that I spend with him and get to talk with him is the best. But X is X. If you know him, you can’t tell him anything and you can’t suggest anything, X is going to do whatever he wants to do. But I’m sure he’ll get better. That’s just his process.”
Check out the full interview over at Rolling Out’s website where she talks about having to leave Interscope and more, and let us know what you think of her comments!
Eve is definitely in love! It’s written all over her face and she never misses an opportunity to gush about about her British beau, Maximillion Cooper. Although she nipped those recent pregnancy rumors in the bud, the Philadelphia native revealed to Sister 2 Sister that she is looking forward to getting hitched and having a baby.
“We talk about having kids. We talk about marriage,” she told the mag.
She went on to reveal that she’s getting plenty of practice, as Max has four children, whose ages ranged between ten and four years old. The “Make it Out This Town” rapper confessed that at first she was a little apprehensive about assuming the role of stepmother, but she eventually experienced a change of heart.
“I love it now. It took a minute. I was like, ‘I’m not sure this is what I want to be my life.’ You know? But honestly, it’s been three years now and we’ve gone on vacations together, and they’re the sweetest kids.”
According to Eve, the kiddies are also excited by the idea of getting a new sibling.
“The kids are excited. They want a brown baby sister.”
In an interview earlier this month, she expressed that she didn’t want to raise her children to see color.
“I want them to be colorblind, but I do want them to understand both sides of themselves. I’m a Black woman and I love being a Black woman. And I think my child should know that Black part of themselves. But obviously at the same time, their father would be White and I would want them to know that side of themselves. And British! That’s a whole other situation (laughs). But in doing that, I think they can be colorblind. I don’t want them to see color. I never did. I grew up in the hood and my mother was very good at it not being a Black thing, even though I grew up around all Black people. I want them to want to know everything about all kinds of races. And hopefully they will.”
“It’s Time To Pop Something Out”: Eve Talks Kids, DMX, Stevie J, And Why She Only Seems To Date Rich Men On “Wendy”
Ready or not, Eve is back and she’s been looking pretty amazing these days. She’s been making her rounds, doing photoshoots and interviews to promote her new album, Lip Lock, her first album since 2002′s Eve-Olution. She did try and put out an album between the 11 years that she’s been on hiatus, and unfortunately it got shelved because the execs her label weren’t feeling it: “I was supposed to put out an album after “Tambourine, which was 2004, 2006, but it got shelved. I think my album wasn’t what the execs wanted and they just put it on the shelf.”
So knowing that, Eve had to battle for a few years to get away from Interscope, and after signing another bad deal, she had to battle for another year to get out of that contract, and she’s finally settled and released new music on her own independent label, From The Rib Music.
The 34-year-old rapper, who now lives in London with her man Maximillion Cooper, sat down with Wendy Williams to talk about more than just music, including love, babies, and DMX:
On whether or not DMX is on her new album and how she feels about his public struggles:
“He’s not on this album, but I love X. We don’t talk or call each other, anything like that…I love him, I love him.
When Wendy asked Eve if she watched DMX’s appearance on Iyanla: Fix My Life, this is what she had to say:
“Poor X. I didn’t watch it. I don’t watch anything actually. He’s been on a few things, I just don’t watch it. I can’t….But if he ever needed me, I’d be there.”
Speaking on her penchant for dating “nothing but money,” including millionaire Maximillion Cooper:
“You know what, there’s a certain lifestyle I think that I want to live. I’m going to do it on my own. I work hard. I work my butt of. But at the same time, I just, I don’t want to be with somebody I got to take care of. I’ll do it on my own, it doesn’t matter with the man though.”
On her past messing with Stevie J in the late ’90s and early ’00s and responding to the idea of it being “craziness”:
“It was. I think as ladies, we’ve all had the unfortunate…ugh [turns up face]. I can’t even continue it. I was young, it was what it was. God is good. I’m here where I am and I’m happy in love.”
The state of the rap game right now, including her thoughts on the “femcees” out currently:
“I think there’s a lot of really cool girls out right now. I wish there were more girls, that’s my only complaint. But I think Nicki’s doing her thing, I think Azealia Banks is doing her thing. It’s Angel Haze. There’s a lot of girls coming up. We just need more.”
So what about marriage and babies next? Is she ready?
“Oh, it’s time to pop something out. Let me not pretend, okay!”

From The Grio
Rapper and actress Eve recently made headlines for her comments about wanting her future children with her Caucasian boyfriend Maximillion Cooper to be raised “colorblind,” which were met with some criticism from fans and critics online. “I don’t want them to see color. I never did,” said 34-year-old Philly native said in an interview with Vibe Vixen. “I grew up in the hood and my mother was very good at it not being a black thing, even though I grew up around all black people. I want them to want to know everything about all kinds of races.”
The emcee, whose new album Lip Lock is in stores now, clarified her “colorblind” statement in a video interview with theGrio, saying she’s surprised that the topic of interracial dating is even relevant to the public anymore.

You Mad Huh? Rick Ross Reportedly Feels Betrayed By Reebok After Firing; And Rapper Eve Has Words For His Lyrics: “It’s Not OK”
Sources close to the rapper tell TMZ … Ross will lose between $3.5 million and $5 million … he was getting a check each time he wore the shoes.
And for that reason, Ross reportedly feels betrayed by the company. That’s right, folks. Despite coming off as understanding about having to part ways with the sneaker brand after an outcry over his lyrics on the song “U.O.E.N.O.” by Rocko (which he’s been replaced on), and even Tweeting, “I want to thank Reebok Classics for their hard work and dedication over this past year.Good partners,good shoe.continued success,” the rapper is actually said to be pretty enraged with the company. According to TMZ, he feels as though they should have given him a second chance as a form of “corporate forgiveness” since he helped make them more relevant in the hip-hop community. He was on the cover of XXL recently along with Allen Iverson and Tyga promoting the shoes and the company’s legacy, and feels that he did a lot to assure folks that Reeboks are on the same level with other brands. But with women’s rights groups calling for his firing, and word of the lyrics spreading like wildfire, reigniting the conversation about rape culture, they decided not to stand by someone who thought this type of wordplay and message being sent out to the masses was okay. Just face it Ross, you messed up, and it cost you…
And throwing her two cents in recently, rapper/actress Eve agreed that Reebok did what they needed to do. As a lyricist, she understands that some rappers think wordplay is wordplay and it doesn’t mean you’ll actually do something bad, but in an interview with Rap-Up TV, she said it’s not okay to put that message out there.
“People still have to remember it is [Reebok] a business and there are shareholders that are bigger than just Reebok that are probably looking at this situation and being like, ‘You know what, this is not something that we want to represent.’”
As for what she thought of the song: “As a woman, I’m like, ‘Whoa.’ It just makes you think in a different way. I feel like it’s wordplay, but at the same time, it does make you think twice, like what do you mean? Are you that dude? It’s not OK.”
