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!
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!
Have you seen a movie in theaters this year? With the start of a new year comes new opportunities for production companies to release films they hope will capture your attention. Unlike last year, they haven’t been too many standouts, but that shouldn’t discourage you from grabbing some popcorn and supporting your favorite celebrities. Here’s a look at some of the box office hits and misses to date.
He’s come a long way since Soul Plane. From Think Like A Man to The Real Husbands of Hollywood to Ride Along to The Wedding Ringer it’s no secret that Kevin Hart is on a roll with no intention of stopping.
The North Philly born and bred comedian recently announced the “WHAT NOW?” North-American take over tour compiled of 45 city stops between The United States and Canada. Tickets go on sale February 20 for the tour which will kick off in San Antonio, Texas on April 9 and ends in the City Of Brotherly Love on Aug 30.
In addition to ending the tour in the city where the “Grown Little Man” got his start, he will become the first comedian to headline an NFL stadium when he performs at Philly’s own Lincoln Financial Field. The Philadelphia Eagles announced this first via their official website.
We can’t knock Kevin Hart’s hustle. He may only be 5’4” but his career is coming up anything but short. For tickets and tour dates, visit What Now Tour.
Not only is Philadelphia’s own Mo’ne Davis a star on the baseball field, she’s taken some of that talent to the basketball court too. And fellow Philly native Kevin Hart got to witness up close and personal all the amazing Mo’ne is made of.
Last night in Sprite’s NBA celebrity hoops game, Mo’ne took it to house on Hart in an impressive spin move that had the comedian seeing stars. Hart is a 3 time celebrity hoops MVP who’s decent effort at defense was no match for Mo’ne as she dribbled right past him in a big blur straight to the hoop.
Davis is the first girl to earn a win and to pitch a shutout in Little League World Series history. She is the first African-American girl to play in the Little League World Series and the first to appear on the cover of Sports Illustrated as a Little League Player.
Take a look at TMZ’s video of Kevin Hart getting schooled:
Kevin Hart has yet another hit on his hands, folks! The Wedding Ringer debuted at #2 at the weekend box office, making a little over $20,000,000 in its opening weekend (a far second, as folks in middle America went in droves to help American Sniper rake in more than $100 million in its opening weekend). While promoting the movie on The Breakfast Club late last week, Hart was asked if he would ever play a homosexual character on the big screen. Surprisingly, he said no, because according to the comedian, it’s not something he’s comfortable with. It all started when Charlamagne asked Hart if there is one role he regrets turning down (start the video at the 32:30 mark):
Kevin Hart: “One role I regret is Tropic Thunder. Brandon T. Jackson, he got the part. But in my defense…first of all, before I say this, I’m politically correct. To the gay community, I respect and appreciate any and everything that you all do. And as people, I love you. The part was way…”
Angela Yee: “Gayer?”
Hart: “Yeah, in the beginning. The dude was doing a lot of stuff in the draft that I read. He was like ‘Yo, c’mon man, let me…let me…”
Yee: “Suck your…”
Hart: “Yeah, it was a lot of…it was real flagrant. It was a lot of stuff and I was like, ‘I can’t do this.'”
Yee: “But could you play a gay role?”
Hart: “No. Not because I have any ill will or disrespect. It’s because I feel like I can’t do that because I don’t think I’m really going to dive into that role 100 percent because of the insecurities about myself trying to play that part. Does that make sense? Like, what I think people are going to think while I’m trying to do this is going to stop me from playing that part the way that I’m supposed to. I’m not at that acting point in my career. Several years later when I’ve done this part and you say, ‘Hey Kevin, I thought you said you would never do it.’ ‘I’m at a point where I want to take a chance. This role made sense, this story made sense.’ I may do it. Everybody got on me about the dress on SNL. ‘Yo, you said you would never do it!’ Thought I wouldn’t. They presented the sketch, I thought it was funny. I was like ‘Yo, I kind of look like the little girl, that would be funny!”
In the end, Hart says that he might find THE role, possibly playing a gay character, and take it on because it could be just the right move for his career at that time. But at this moment, playing a homosexual on-screen is “not on the drawing board” as of right now…
However, Hart has played a gay character in the past, even if it wasn’t a serious character. In Scary Movie 4, he and Anthony Anderson reenacted (in a comical manner of course) a scene out of Brokeback Mountain. They got a little too close in a tent and sang Lionel Richie’s “Hello” before hinting to the audience that they had sex. Throwback moment:
Kevin Hart has absolutely NO intentions of slowing down.
The comedian/rockstar hosted Saturday Night Live for the second time last night. The first time Hart performed on SNL was in 2013. Kevin had the honor of hosting the first episode of 2015 for the show.
During his hosting gig, Kevin performed several skits and kept the audience laughing. Some of our favorite skits include “Why’d You Post that?”, “Listening Party” and “Bushwick, Brooklyn 2015.” Take a peek at the different skits and tell us your favorite!
Kevin Hart is truly one of our favorite comedians of the 2010s.

Why’d You Post That?
When it comes to some of Hollywood’s cutest celebrities, size doesn’t always matter. At least when it comes to their height. And while tall, dark and handsome seems like a package deal, we have a number of wonderfully suave, easy-on-the-eyes celebs who haven’t let a shorter stature impact their standing with the ladies.
According to Kevin Hart, the tension that once lingered between his ex-wife, Torrei Hart, and his fiancée, Eniko Parrish, is a thing of the past. During a recent chat with The Breakfast Club, the comedian expressed that Torrei and Eniko are doing a lot better and it’s all because Torrei extended the olive branch.
“I actually, recently called Torrei and gave Torrei the biggest compliment ever because Torrei reached out after the New Year and just said, ‘I want our relationship to be better.’ I thought that was dope on Torrei’s side.”
According to The Wedding Ringer actor, the issue was not that they couldn’t get along, but that they never communicated.
“It’s not that they never got along, they just don’t talk. Just don’t talk at all. Like at all, literally. They’ve never been ignorant towards each other, they just don’t talk. And I get it, but I was like it’s stupid. But as the guy in the middle of the situation, I don’t say nothing. I act as if everything is cool. Now that they’ve been talking and communicating, I think it’s great. It’s great. In my kids’ eyes, Eniko and Torrei get along. Where they are now is dope. Whatever my kids see is elevated now.”
Don’t expect to see the “Atlanta Exes” star at Kev and Neeki’s wedding or anything, but the father of two says that she’s definitely free to attend if she’d like.
“I know Torrei ain’t gonna come to no wedding. If she wanted to, she could.”
As for how he currently feels about Torrei, Kevin says he has nothing but love for his ex-wife.
“To my ex-wife, let me tell you something about my ex-wife. I don’t care what my ex-wife does or has said or has done. That’s the mother of my kids. I respect her. You’ve never heard me disrespect my wife, any way, shape or form. I respect her. I treat her the way I’m supposed to. I don’t care if we fight today, fight tomorrow, the mother of my kids is always going to be on a pedestal. All of the people in the media, I talk to this woman every day. Not because I have to, but because I want to. That’s the mother of my kids. We go at it sometimes, I’m not going to lie to you, but she’s the mother of my kids.”
Oh yeah, he insists that he didn’t plan to propose to Eniko on the night of Torrei’s reality show premiere, things just sort of happened that way.
“A complete accident. Listen to me and I’m glad you brought this up. That was 110% accident. I had no idea. Listen, it was Eniko’s 30th birthday. Everything I do is planned. That night was planned. When I did it, after the surprise party. We sat down and ate dinner and then I propose. Everybody pulled out cameras, taking pictures and everybody was posting it. It was a freak of nature.”
It’s refreshing to hear that these three have decided to put the foolishness behind them.
Kevin Hart proposed to his girlfriend of five years, Eniko Parrish, last summer and as he’s preparing for the upcoming nuptials, he revealed who will be his best man.
“My son. He’s seven years old and his name is Hendrix,” he told HipHollywood while smiling about his decision to make his son best man
Hart had his son with ex-wife Torrei Hart who is the star of “Atlanta Exes.” It seems as though he can’t wait to have the little guy by his side on his wedding day.
Hart revealed the decision about his seven-year-old son while attending the premiere of his upcoming buddy comedy, “The Wedding Ringer,” where he plays a best man for hire.
As for the marriage-themed red carpet premiere, Hart wasn’t the only star to have some revealing wedding news. Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting opened up about her surprise New Year’s Eve wedding.
