I can name quite a few classic songs off the top of my my head that Dr. Dre produced for some of rap’s heaviest hitters: “Nuthin But A G Thang,” “Who Am I (What’s My Name),” “In Da Club,” “The Real Slim Shady,” “Boyz-n-the-hood” and so on and so forth. But while the new billionaire is known for his beats (you like my play on words there?) he’s done for rappers and the impact they’ve had on hip-hop, he’s also done a number of tracks in R&B and pop music for a little bit of everybody, including the ladies. Here are nine surprising songs by and for the ladies that were produced by Dr. Dre (and if you already knew all these, kudos and a big ‘ol cookie to you!).
We’re glad to see the Lifetime network is taking a break from the bio-pics to feature some of our favorite starlets in a new film. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Eve, Regina Hall and Jill Scott have been tapped to star in the original movie “With This Ring”.
The movie focuses on three single women who after attending a lavish New Year’s Eve wedding, vow to be married themselves within a year. Only 12 months will tell who actually makes it to the altar.
Tracey Edmonds, Sheila Ducksworth (Soul Food) and Gabrielle Union are all behind the film’s production and Nzhinga Stewart (The Game) serves as writer and director. “With This Ring” is scheduled to begin filming in Cleveland in August for a debut later this year.
“With This Ring” is the latest project to join a series of films aimed at African-American audiences including the remake of “Steel Magnolias”, “A Day Late And A Dollar Short” and bio-pics focused on the lives of Gabrielle Douglas, Whitney Houston and Aaliyah. We’re looking forward to seeing these talented ladies on screen together.
We told you about the new show T.I. is producing for Oxygen called The Sisterhood of Hip Hop. The show is supposed to follow women rappers like Diamond (formerly of Crime Mob), Brianna Perry, Bia, Nyemiah and Siya as they work to get their careers off the ground, juggle and try to maintain strained and complicated relationships, and try to interact positively with one another.
Well, the first full-length trailer for the show has surfaced, and if you ask me, it doesn’t look bad! The women (Siya in particular) have talent, and it seems that most of the conflict comes from their relationships with lovers and family (and family members who also double as managers), than with other cast members. There are also appearances from Soulja Boy, who of course, was in a relationship with Diamond for a while, Rick Ross, Tank, as well as Eve, who offers positive words to frustrated MC Bia.
As is stated in the trailer, “The game is hard enough for women so we all need to Kumbaya. That sounds cliche, but it’s the truth.” And that’s what we’re hoping the ladies will do when The Sisterhood of Hip Hop finally hits TV screens.
The show premieres on Tuesday, August 12 and it looks like it’s worth at least one watch before coming to any real conclusions. Check out the trailer for yourself below and let us know what you think.
Beauty is in the eye of the holder and for these celebs who have jungle fever, they see no color when it comes to dating someone outside of their race.
Perhaps best known as magneto in the blockbuster franchise X-Men, Michael Fassbender knew he wanted to be an actor since he was 17 years old. His first role came in the television miniseries “Band of Brothers.” The German-Irish actor has been romantically linked to actress Nicole Baharie and Leasi Andrews. He also dated Zoe Kravitz for several years. Recently rumors were sparked last month when the 12 Years a Slave actor was spotted hugging and kissing supermodel Naomi Campbell while dining at a London restaurant.

Every once in a while it’s refreshing to see a celeb who’s not about the drama, experiencing some true happiness. Rapper, Eve has been out of the music spotlight for a few years, but her personal life has been anything but boring. We love Eve because she’s just doing her. She’s not chasing fame via sex tapes, random pregnancies and arrests (although she’s had her fair share in her hay day). But lately she’s been lying low and falling in love.
On Friday night, the soon to be formerly-known-as Eve Jihan Jeffers enjoyed a bachelorette party surrounded by singer Mashonda and a few other close family and friends including comedienne, Whitney Cummings. Tycoon, Maximillion Cooper popped the question to the “pitbull in a skirt” this past December in Edinburgh, Scotland and the two plan to wed in Ibiza in June.
The pair have been dating since 2010. Cooper is a fashion designer and founder of the Gumball 3000, a 3000 mile British car rally, lifestyle brand and where the couple actually met. The rapper revealed to Chelsea Handler in June that this is the first interracial relationship both have been involved in.
Rocking a bride-to-be tiara, the former First Lady of Ruff Ryders posted a few pics on Instagram of the celebration and a caption that read:
Thanku to all my girls for tonight. The best #bachelorette party #ever #girlsnightout #almostmrscooper #fun I FEEL SO SPECIAL
Check out a few pics of the fun and Eve and her fiance on the next few pages. Congrats Eve!
Rapper Eve is said to be preparing for summer nuptials to her fiancée Maximillion Cooper.
According to the New York Post’s Page Six, the pair are planning a lavish June wedding at the Blue Marlin megaclub in Ibiza, which is frequented by Kate Moss, Sly Stallone and Leonardo DiCaprio.
It’s the first marriage for Eve, 35, who closed a deal with ABC in January to star in an interracial romantic comedy series loosely based on her life.

New year, new IRS targets.
We told you yesterday that the IRS is allegedly on Vince Herbert’s back over unpaid taxes totaling $3,325,107.70. Now, according to Radar Online, newly engaged rapper Eve has the IRS on her back too. Based on newly-filed court documents (which Radar Online has), E-V-E, aka, Eve Jeffers, has two separate tax liens filed against her in the state of New York. The first lien was placed against the 35-year-old in the summer for unpaid taxes from 2007, 2010 and 2011. The total of her unpaid taxes in that lien comes to a total of $224,987.95.
The second lien came in November of 2013, after the rapper was audited a year before for not paying $102,084.30 in 2012. So the tally of her unpaid taxes for all four years rounds out to $327,072.25.
But there should be no need for Eve to fret. Of course, she’s engaged to be married to millionaire Maximillion Cooper, the man behind the popular international Gumball 3000 races. So I’m sure he’ll be able to lend her a couple hundred thousand to make this whole tax lien thing go away. Either way, it’s a rough start to the year for stars and their money. But let’s hope Herbert and Eve can fix their lien issues long before the IRS tries to come for them with jail time like they did the likes of Lauryn Hill and Fat Joe last year.

Singers often look into their own personal lives as inspiration for songs. These 15 artists got very heartfelt and emotional by singing about the joys of parenthood and their children. Here are some of our favorite songs singers wrote for their children.
Superstar singer Beyonce is normally a private person but after having her first child, Blue Ivy, the former Destiny’s Child member has opened up about the joys of motherhood. In addition to sharing intimate photos of mother and child, Beyonce penned the song “Blue.” In the song, which is on her latest album Beyonce, Blue sings about feeling alive when she looks into her daughter’s eyes. At the end of the song, Blue Ivy joins in and sings with her mommy before asking if they can go see daddy.

Despite her recent engagement to her millionaire boo, Maximillion Cooper, it looks like rapper/actress Eve doesn’t plan on assuming the role of the wealthy stay-at-home wife. According to Deadline, the Philadelphia native recently signed on to star in a new ABC romantic comedy about interracial love.
Thought specific details such as the series’ official title and premiere date are still unknown, what we do know is that the project is being considered for the 2014-15 development season and that they are still in search of a writer. In addition to starring in the series, 35-year-old bride-to-be will also be executive producing alongside Aaron Kaplan of Kapital Entertainment. The duo pitched the series to ABC and from the looks of it, the network was totally feeling it because they closed the deal.
Eve and Aaron confirmed the good news to eager fans last night via Twitter and even offered tiny updates about where they currently are in the production process.
It looks like 2014 and 2015 will be two very exciting years for Ms. Eve. We’re very happy for her and as always, we will keep you posted as this story develops.
Are you excited about Eve jumping back into the acting world?
Congratulations are in order for one of our favorite rappers, Eve, and her love, British entrepreneur, Maximillion Cooper. The couple, who have been together since 2010, got engaged during this holiday season. Eve didn’t do the standard Twitter or Instagram post letting the world know, “CHIIIILE, I’M GETTING MARRIED!” with the ring pic. Instead, Eve kept it pretty subtle, as it was her fan page, @RRFirstLady, who peeped a huge rock on the rapper’s hand in a recent picture and guessed right about about an engagement:
E-V-E, who is known for actually responding to her fans on her official Twitter page, responded with this:
The beauty spent her holidays with her man in London, but also brought her family along to enjoy the festivities of Christmas and Boxing Day. Eve actually has been living in London with Cooper for the most part, but still goes back and forth from time to time to Los Angeles and New York.
Maximillion Cooper is the man behind the uber-popular Gumball 3000, an annual British motor rally, and he’s also a fashion designer. He has four children from a previous marriage, kids who have had a major impact on his relationship with the rapper, who spoke to Sister 2 Sister earlier this year about getting close to his kids:
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.
Eve has also been open about the crap she has received over the years for her relationship with Cooper, specifically in the very beginning. As she told Katie Couric:
It was shocking. I’m dating a white man and… he’s cute. I got heat because I’m this black girl who comes from hip-hop and I’m dating a white man, and honestly… I’ve always just been a people person… and it (the romance) just so happened to happen. I got so many hateful tweets from people, and I don’t understand hate… Get over it. I just really couldn’t believe it. Now it’s fine. Now it’s fine, but I just couldn’t believe it.
Well boo to that, because Eve is happy and is wishing you (and the haters) the same happiness and blessings for 2014:
#familytime!!!! Me and my mom and my lil brother Farrod just got to the English country side. Feel so#blessed to be with my family and sharing my life here. I pray that you bring 2014 in with people you #love. And nothing but #good #energy
Congratulations to Eve and her longtime love. Happiness looks oh so good on you, boo!
