Back in 2001, we learned what “hateration in this dancery” meant, how to politely diss a boo’s mama thanks to Outkast and figuratively “Rock The Boat.”

Usher schooled men on how to sweat their ladies  through his “U Got It Bad” song/video that featured then-girlfriend Chilli and Chris Tucker even found himself kind of singing background vocals for Michael Jackson’s “You Rock My World.”

Check out the songs that made you sit at home with your diary or “Raise Up” with your crew!

Now That’s Some TLC: Chilli Braids Nick Cannon’s Hair As Dating Rumors Heat Up

Nick Cannon and Chilli


Just a month ago, rumors swirled that Nick Cannon, 35, and Chilli, 45, were dating. In response to such stories, Cannon played as corny coy as he could. “I would be so lucky to be able to be called ‘dating’ her,” Cannon told PEOPLE. “This is all new to me. I’m not ready for titles and all that stuff. I’m damaged goods! Who would want to date me? Clearly I don’t get it.”

And just like that, the conversation about the pair died down – until this photo popped up:

Yes, that’s Ms. Rozonda Thomas braiding Cannon’s hair (with some obvious help). And just as fast as that picture hit the Internet, a source spoke to The New York Post and claimed that the two have been dating for the last two months and managed to keep it on the low until now.

“They’ve been seeing each other for about two months. She really likes him and they’re spending a lot of time together,” the source told the Post. “She’s beaming all the time. She’s met his friends and family. Everyone approves.”

According to this same source, Cannon has also invited Chilli to join him at one of his many jobs, his hosting gig on America’s Got Talent. She was allegedly invited to tag along for filming this week with his mom. But as things heat up romantically, don’t expect them to heat up in the bedroom. If you’ll recall, Cannon told Ellen DeGeneres he was “being celibate. I’m trying to work on myself. No sex right now.”

While my colleagues were less than thrilled about the idea of these two as a couple, I think this pairing is kind of cute. Who knows? With his love for older women (i.e., Mariah Carey) and her appreciation of younger men (i.e., Usher), they may have finally found their perfect match. If not, he can at least get some fly cornrows done in the meantime…

What do you think of this possible couple?

Celebrities grace the covers of magazines and partake in photo shoots on a regular basis. No biggie, right? Well, that privilege takes on a completely different meaning for pregnant stars. For some of them who haven’t already shared the good news, posing while pregnant serves as their official baby announcement to the world. For others, a baby bump magazine cover or photo shoot is a chance to document and flaunt one of the most exciting times in their lives. Many pregnant models, actresses and singers have happily posed for magazines over the years, and some of them have even done it with zero clothing on. The result? Artful, classy, timeless images that present pregnant women in a beautiful, vibrant light. The joy and magic of pregnancy is a wondrous thing. Click on for pictures of some of your favorite celebs who bared it all – and in some instances, went fully clothed – while pregnant.

MTV Cribs Is Back! Relive Some Of The Show’s Best Moments

MTV recently announced that they’re bringing back Cribs, that beloved show that gave us an inside glimpse into the homes of some of our favorite musicians, actors and athletes.  Not that we didn’t already know that celebrities could live such lavish lifestyles, but Cribs showed us everything from in-home stripper poles to gold pool tables, private islands, obligatory food porn fridge shots and more.  And though we assumed that everything we saw was real, we later found out that some of the homes (and cars – ahem, 50 Cent) featured on the show didn’t even belong to the stars who were showing them off.  Hopefully, that won’t be the case this time around.  In honor of its return, let’s take a look back at some of the best MTV Cribs episodes.

Mariah Carey

There was so much to unpack in Mariah Carey’s episode, they had to give her a full hour to display her New York City penthouse.  The butterfly guest bedroom, her lingerie closet, the bedroom-sized bathroom and the lounge chair in her gourmet kitchen…we saw everything except her bedroom (and piano that formerly belonged to Marilyn Monroe). Cribs was clearly meant for a glamorous diva like Carey.

Meet John Legend & Chrissy’s Teigen’s Daughter, Luna! And See 9 Other Memorable Celeb Baby Reveals

Some celebrities are very private when it comes to their children. The little ones don’t ask to be brought up in the same limelight that their parents inhabit, and therefore, some famous moms and dads keep their children out of the public eye. That’s exactly why you probably won’t see Kerry Washington’s daughter, or Michael Ealy’s son until they’re probably adults with their own kids…

But other people want to share their joy with the world when it comes to giving birth and bringing up little ones. So they show off their kids in simple ways, like on Instagram, and in grandiose ways as well, like on the cover of magazines. Here are 10 memorable times our favorite ladies showed off their babies–many babies who are now well into childhood and have grown up right in front of our eyes.

We’ll start with a baby who just made her debut online this week:


hi my lulu!

After giving birth to a baby girl named Luna Simone Stephens last week, Chrissy Teigen showed off baby Luna yesterday. And based on her parents, we’re sure Luna will be gorgeous–and quite the vocal little lady on social media.

Why Mariah Isn't Waiting To Remarry

Splash News

Mariah Carey’s plans to tie the knot with fiancé, James Packer, seem quite sudden considering that her ex, Nick Cannon, just filed for divorce a little over a year ago. Some assumed that Mimi would simply enjoy being the girlfriend off the wealthy businessman for a while before diving headfirst back into married life, but the singer says that’s just not how she gets down. At this point in her life, she feels that it’s more “appropriate” to be a wife.

“I am very traditional. I have babies, it’s more appropriate,” she told The Sunday Times’ Style Magazine. “I don’t know if most people can relate to that, but that’s just how I feel.”

Although, when she first got engaged, she previously told E! that she’ll be going for a smaller wedding this time around, Mimi is pretty tight-lipped about wedding plans these days.

“It’s a secret,” she replied when met with questions about her impending nuptials.

Interestingly, she’s just as tight-lipped about the relationship in general—and for good reason. She’s tired of her words being manipulated and misconstrued, so to avoid confusion, she has decided to protect the relationship by not speaking about it.

“If I start talking about this relationship, people will interpret it in their own way, so I think it’s safer for everyone involved to just not talk about the very personal aspect.”

Smart move, Mimi. Smart move.

Folks have been getting on singer Ciara’s case recently for her decision to sue her former fiancé, Future, for defaming her name in public. But she’s far from the only Hollywood celebrity who has had to take their ex to court.

Breakups have a tendency to be messy, especially when stars split. But when lawsuits get involved, the messiness can quickly skyrocket to another level. And you won’t believe the reasons these celebrities are taking their exes to court. From STDs to explosive arguments that happened years ago, these former couples are taking their past baggage to court to let a judge sort it out. Sometimes for millions in damages.

If you could take your ex to court, what would you sue him or her for? Or is it petty to get the legal system involved no matter how badly you feel you’ve been done wrong? We want to know what you think. So tell us whether you’re #teamlawsuit or #teamletitgo in the comment section.

Everyone obsessed with the TV show Hoarders has been dying for a celebrity episode since the famous reality show started. If the blue-collar, everyday people from our favorite episodes can stack their houses from floor to ceiling, we can only imagine how celebrities with big money and loads of crap might let their homes get cluttered with all kind of things.

Unfortunately, the A-list is less than likely to take a detour towards the reality TV circuit. Thankfully, these celebrities weren’t afraid to admit that their collections may have gotten a little out of control. Get ready to be pretty surprised about the celebrities who made this list. Would you have guessed what’s going on behind these Hollywood walls?

Heidi Klum has kept nearly every handbag, shoe and garment from the more than 20 years she’s spent in the fashion industry. She told ET Canada, “You know what it is – I’m a hoarder, and I just hoard and hoard and hoard.”

Vanessa Williams

Vanessa Williams made headlines as the first Black winner of Miss America, a title that she would later relinquish after a Penthouse scandal threatened her burgeoning career.  But Williams bounced back and conquered virtually every sector of entertainment: the musical charts, Broadway, film, and television.  If that doesn’t scream biopic, I don’t know what does.
