R&B songbird Aaliyah may have sang, “Age ain’t nothing but a number,” but not everyone is ready to admit what that number really is. These celebrities have been caught up in age controversies as a result of being elusive or simply just out right lying about their age.

It seems like Karlie Redd and her messy ways were made for reality television. As it turns out, the Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta star may be a lot older than her cast mates. At one point, Karlie insisted she was in her twenties, but that was before fans found out about her adult daughter. Even though Karlie claims to be in her thirties, word around town is that number may be closer to 50.

This summer, Viola Davis and Jennifer Lopez will take the screen in the dramatic indie film, Lila And Eve. Previewed in January at the Sundance Film Festival, Lila And Eve centers around two mothers whose children have died.

The women meet one another at a grief support meeting and quickly form a friendship. When Lila is not satisfied with the police investigation regarding her son’s death, Eve encourages her to take matters into her own hands. The two then begin to investigate the case and find Lila’s son’s killer, however,  they become extremely vengeful in the process.

With drama, murder, grief and drugs intertwining in the film, it appears Lila And Eve will be nothing short of a hit summer thriller.

Directed by Charles Stone III (Drumline), Lila And Eve will debut on July 17th in theaters and on demand.

Take a look at the trailer, below!

Let us be clear, this season’s crop of fashion on the Met Gala red carpet was not our favorite. The theme of “China: Through The Looking Glass” really didn’t work for anybody…or maybe we just didn’t get the references. The MET needs to stop with the themes, it just seems to throw everybody off.

Le sigh. Grap your cup…

Jennifer Lopez is a mommy who doesn’t stop. Between filming American Idol and promoting her new movies, the producer, dancer, singer, entertainer, and businesswoman, took the time to develop a new fragrance called JLuxe.

This fragrance is pure luxury. We were lucky enough to test it out for the past few days, and the compliments on  the scent did not stop. And if you know what it’s like to be a haggard mom for most of the week, taking some time out for yourself to dress up and do you hair and nails and spray on some perfume doesn’t come often. So when you get a chance, go all out! (I tried it out on a jam-packed night at Jay Z’s 40/40 Club in New York City, score!)

JLuxe by JLo is inspired by her fiercely fashionable presence. A floriental fruity fragrance that leaves a lasting impression, JLuxe by JLo opens with a luscious medley of juicy pineapple and sweet raspberry. Then, the luxurious heart of the fragrance blooms with a floral bouquet of soft violet and Damascenian rose, as sensual layers of warm amber, cedarwood and musk compose the sensorial dry down on the skin.

It’ll definitely make passersby do a double take.

It’s Hollywood’s biggest night, and while black folks might not have picked up many nominations (Selma is nominated in the Best Picture category, and “Glory” is nominated for Best Original Song), I was quite surprised to see how many of our stars showed up for the the big ceremony. What are they looking like? I have all their looks for you to see, and talk about, here. So who looked amazing and who didn’t? Let’s chat!

Lupita Nyong’o

In a custom Calvin Klein gown, Lupita returned to the Academy Awards red carpet a year after winning. Her heavily adorned pearl dress with its open back and keyhole detail is one-of-a-kind, and she definitely looks one-of-a-kind on the carpet. And while I like what they’ve tried to with her hair recently, I actually prefer this close, cropped and curled look. Steal!
