With a little inspiration from tonight’s episode of “Single Ladies” and the enthusiasm of our Twitter page, I was inspired to show love this week to Romeo Miller, who sure ain’t “Lil” no more. It’s interesting to think that some years ago, he was a little boy trying to make a Bow Wow-esque rap career happen with the song “My Baby,” but he’s all grown up now and seems to have women twice his age swooning (including a thirsty Kirstie Alley). If you want evidence of why the 22-year-old New Orleans native has it going on, check out our eye candy gallery for a lot of it!
Some of Hollywood’s most wanted men have their fair share of female attention. Although many have reaped the rewards of celebrity in the dating department, we know that their perspectives must have changed when they had their own daughters to raise. Here are some photos of some Black Hollywood celebs and their little (and not so little) girls!
The youngest child of Juanita and Michael Jordan has kept a low profile as a sensible and well-grounded teen. She’s set to start her freshman year in college at Syracuse University in the fall. Luckily for her, she not only has a superstar dad looking out for her but two older brothers as well.
Nickeklodeon faced a big time rating loss last quarter, but the channel vows that this quarter the views will hit a new high. The company is bringing on Master P’s daughter, Cymphonique Miller, to star in her own original series called “How to Rock.”
“We’re hoping for great things from Cymphonique– a big, fat, giant hit,” Nickelodeon’s president for original programming Margie Cohn told AllHipHop.com. “That’s what I’ve been working for with this series, so why not say it?”
Stardom runs all throughout the family starting with Master P who is known as one of the most successful hip hop businessman. Cymphonique’s older brother, Romeo Miller, also had his own show on Nickelodeon from 2003-2006.
Despite Cymphonique’s big dreams of stardom and her family’s success, Master P tells AllHipHop.com that he didn’t want his 15-year-old daughter to get into the entertainment industry.
“I tried everything in my power to stop this girl because this can be a hard, sick business — really easy to get taken advantage of,” he said to AllHipHop.com. “I guess you can’t hold raw talent back.”
Viacom’s chief exectutive Phillippe Dauman tells AllHipHop.com that Cymphonique’s show is just one of the many more new shows they have planned. Dauman expects that with her show leading the change, the new shows will boost ratings so that “next quarter we expect to see stronger ad sales growth.”
Fans of Nickelodeon and the Miller family can look forward to “How to Rock’s” debut next month set for February 4.
Master P’s daughter is following in the footsteps of her older brother, Romeo, by landing her own show on Nickelodeon.
Fifteen-year-old Cymphonique Miller will star in “How To Rock,” debuting Feb. 4, and the network already has plans to make her the pop phenome of 2012. To promote the show, they’ve created an eight-part video about the teen and the song, “Only You Can Be You,” which she sings in the first episode of the series, is already available on iTunes.
Margie Cohn, Nickelodeon’s president for original programming, said they’re hoping Cymphonique will be “a big, fat, giant hit.”
Master P on the other hand was a little hesitant about putting his baby girl in the spotlight.
“I tried everything in my power to stop this girl because this can be a hard, sick business — really easy to get taken advantage of,” he told AllHipHop.com. “I guess you can’t hold raw talent back.”
With her father by her side, Cymphonique should be able to keep a good head on her shoulders. It’s great to see a young black girl headlining a show on a major kid’s network. Are your children fans of Nickelodeon?

Wendy “How you doin?” Williams and Master P’s all grown up son Romeo (no more “Lil”) are two of the celebs set to compete in this season’s “Dancing with he Stars.” The original “Karate Kid” Ralph Macchio, boxing legend Sugar Ray Leonard and “Cheers” star Kirstie Alley will also be on the show.
The Grio caught up with a few of the contestants:
Alley suggested the contestants’ focus would be to “try not to fall on our butts the first week out. That’s what I’m going for.”
Leonard had a holistic description of his competitive approach.
“I think it’s all psychological. I think it’s spiritual,” he said. “I think it’s all the mental preparation.”

(The Grio) — Rap mogul Master P and Michelle Obama are teaming up to fight the childhood obesity epidemic. Master P will be hosting an event during Grammy week where he will ask celebrities to support the first lady’s Let’s Move! campaign through his own Move Through Music organization. Furthermore, a reader survey conducted by Bizbash named Michelle Obama the top choice to walk the red carpet in 2011. Twenty-five percent of those surveyed selected Mrs. Obama over people like Bill Clinton and Lady Gaga.
