Hopefully you got a chance to celebrate your father or father figure this past Sunday. And while we were out showing appreciation to the men handling their business at home, some of our favorite celebrities were doing the same. Check out the pictures they posted of their special weekend on the following pages.
We always see Ludacris out and about with his daughter Karma, so it’s no surprise that he would post this adorable picture of the two of them. His accompanying caption was precious and hilarious at the same. Let ‘em know Luda.
She changed my Life! Happy Fathers Day to all the real Dads out there. If u not taking care of your Kids #killyoself
Luda and Dad
In addition to posting the picture of he and his daughter, Ludacris also posted this old picture of him and his now deceased father, Wayne. Ludacris lost his father back in 2007 to cancer.

I’ll admit that I’m definitely one of the people who rode that Nas-and-Kelis-are-still-madly-in-love-and-are-going-to-get-back-together-someday wave. I always thought that they were an adorable couple. But truthfully, I could’ve just been romanticizing their split because we were left in the dark for so long regarding the dirty details regarding their break up. My desire for the hip-hop couple to reunite only intensified when the 39-year-old Queens rapper released his Life is Good album where he appeared on the cover, holding his ex-wife’s wedding gown and released songs that were obviously about his releationship with her such as, “Bye Baby.”
In an interview earlier this year, Nas even revealed that he and Kelis were working on their friendship and that he low-key tried to get back with her.
“We’re back together as friends. We were not the best of friends for a long time. We’re friends now and that’s what it is. We’re not together but we’re friends though. I even said, ‘yo, should we try this again?’ I’m like wow. We had all kinds of talks. You know how that is. We have a child. But we’re friends and I’m glad to be at that place. I don’t want no beef. No beef wit ya mama,” Nas honestly expressed.
Since then, there hasn’t been much said about the possibility of a romantic reunion between the pair. Well, until now, that is. One of Kelis’ Instagram followers expressed how happy they were to see Kelis back out in the spotlight and attempted to offer encouragement regarding her situation with ex-husband, Nas.
Surpisingly, Kelis responded to the fan’s well wishes, thanking them for their concern, but letting it be known that she’s not interested in reconciling with Nas because he’d been unfaithful to her.
Then, another fan chimed in, praising the “Jerk Ribs” singer for being real about her feelings and what happened.
And there you have it.
What do you think of Kelis using her Instagram page to address such a personal subject?
It’s about time we see this man’s eyes light up just a little bit.
On Saturday night, Kanye West and his friends hit up Miss Lily’s Caribbean restaurant to celebrate the rapper’s 36th birthday. Jay-Z and Beyoncé. whom he considers family, came out to celebrate along with rapper Nas, football player Victor Cruz and others all came out to party.
While Kim Kardashian was unable to attend (at this point, she probably can’t fly since she’s so close to birth), her sister Kourtney’s boy Scott and Kim’s friend Jonathon were definitely in attendance. Kim also posted a picture on her Instagram wishing the “love of her life and best friend” a happy birthday.
It was good to see Kanye smile in a couple of pictures because don’t get to see that side of him often. In fact, he really only does it at this point when Jay-Z is around. Bless his little heart at all that “bestie” love.
Ladies, can we talk about the most important thing: Nas is looking like a sweet treat waiting to be…nevermind. I’m keeping it clean today but I’m sure you all know where my thoughts were going with that. Why does he continue to be so fine? He should talk to me about how he preserves all that, you know, over drinks and dinner.
With a baby and a new album on the way, it looks like Mr. West will be busier than ever this year! Happy belated, Yeezy!
What ‘Chu Say Boo? Caption This Photo Of Nas, Justin Timberlake, Jay-Z And Timbaland Getting Their “Rat Pack” On In The Studio
Even though Justin Timberlake put out The 20/20 Experience in March (and sold almost a million copies of it in the first week), and hasn’t even really started his Legends of the Summer Tour with Jay-Z yet (it finally kicks off in July), he’s already working on a new project. It will be the follow up to his latest album, and the new album, 20/20 Experience (2 of 2), will debut September 30 of this year.
As he prepares this new work, Justin is hitting the studio with just about everybody, including Pharrell, and these three fabulous fellas: Nas, Jay-Z and Timbaland. The four men were snapped laughing it up. The photo was captioned, “JAY x JT x NAS x TIMBO Rat Pack s**t. For some this is “Work”… For us it’s just Fun. #RocNation”
I don’t know if I would call them some new age form of “The Rat Pack,” but they’re definitely all in their own lanes in music. And they all clearly work well together. So how would you caption this picture of these very handsome fellas chopping it up?
Although they broke up and moved on with other people, we just can’t seem to get over these high-profile celebrity relationships that we thought were a match made in heaven. Here are 15 celebrity couples that we wish could have stood the test of time.
Kanye and Alexis
Before there was Kanye West and Kim Kardashian or even Kanye and Amber Rose, there was Kanye and Alexis. The Chicago rapper/producer met Alexis Phifer back in 2002 and the cute couple dated on and off for four years before West finally popped the question. After an 18-month whirlwind engagement the two went their separate ways citing his hectic touring schedule as the cause. West dated then-unknown model Amber Rose before settling down with the reality show superstar who is now pregnant with their first child.

When artists have beef with each other, the easiest way to let the other person know what’s up is to put it in a song. Many of the rappers and singers who made this list have been known to cause controversy and have no problem speaking their mind. Let’s take a look at some of the most memorable and funny beefs in hip hop.
Carmen Bryan Has A Question For Nas: How Do You Not Invite Your Daughter To The Grammys After Being Nominated For A Song called ‘Daughters’?
I have to say that does sound like a pretty valid question, though one I’m not sure needed to be asked on Twitter. But that’s what Carmen Bryan, the mother of Nas’s oldest daughter, Destiny, inquired on Sunday night during the annual Grammy award ceremony, sending out these tweets:
This year, Nas’ 2012 album, Life is Good, was nominated for Best Rap Album, and the LP’s first single, “Daughters,” was up for two awards, one in the Best Rap Song category and another for Best Rap Performance. The latter nominations are what made Carmen speak out Sunday night, and not for the first time when it comes to Nasir or this track. When the song first debuted, Carmen lit up Twitter with comments like these bashing the song:
What a disappointment! He had nothing positive to say about our daughter and his depiction of her is false!
Destiny is extremely talented, caring and has a huge heart, none of those things were mentioned. I’m proud of her.
Maybe he just doesn’t know her like I do. My song would have been totally different!
Now all of a sudden Carmen wants her daughter to attend a ceremony with her dad who wrote a “disappointing” song about her? That’s sort of…interesting. What’s even more interesting is Nas seems to have no inkling of any drama with his child — or at least any that he’s letting on to. The night before the Grammy’s he told MTV’s Sway that he thinks his daughter is happy about the success of the track and that they’re in a good place.
“You know, she has her own style,” he said of 18-year-old Destiny. “I think she’s more happy for just the fact that her dad’s not corny,” he laughed. ‘Cause, you know, her dad could be … [it's] your parents! So I’m just lucky that we cool, that she still thinks I’m cool.”
Carmen obviously does not.
Do you think Nas was wrong to not take Destiny to the Grammys with him?
You probably heard the news yesterday that the Grammy organization has handed down a dress code for it’s upcoming award show that’s more detailed than that of most catholic schools. And I’m sure you thought, “huh, aren’t we talking about grown people here?”
Oh, how soon we forget. T&A is about as visible during award season as it is inside of a Gentleman’s club, and after years of people (sometimes the same ones) pushing the envelope way, way, way too far, CBS and the powers that be said they’ve had enough and are banning all sorts of attire — or lack thereof — this year. Still confused why they’re being so strict? Check out some of the most risque fashions ever to grace the Grammy red carpet.
When these kids were little, their parents crooned and rapped about them, put them in music videos, took them from place to place on their hip, and in a way, watching them grow up has been like watching someone you personally know age and mature, and it makes us think…dang we’re getting old! Once cute ’90s babies, these famous kids are teenagers or adults trying to find their own way in the world. Some under the radar, some hoping to make it in the entertainment business like their parents. So what are they looking like after all these years?
While Lauryn Hill talked about him very often, even dedicating a song to him on her masterful solo effort, The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill, called “To Zion,” Zion David Marley was a child we really didn’t get to see all that much. Once again, LBoogie came from a time before celebs were posting proud pics of their children online, so Zion had the benefit of growing up outside of all that spotlight. Well, that was until Wyclef decided to publicly claim that Lauryn made him think Zion was HIS son. Today, Zion David Marley is 15 and is the elder brother to Selah, Joshua, John, Sarah, and Lauryn’s last born son from another relationship, Micah. Who does he resemble most to you?

We’re used to male artists tooting their own horn when it comes to what clothes, cars, jewelry, and houses they can afford, not to mention the women they can pull. We’re even used to hearing rappers like Kanye, Jay-Z, and Nas referring to themselves as “the best rapper alive” but now their modesty has been flushed down the drain in a whole different ball game; their skills in the bedroom.
None of us should take everything that comes out of these artists mouths as fact, but when a man is constantly making references to pleasuring a woman with a “hurricane tongue” or having women feeling like he invented sex, we simply can’t help but wonder; do they really got it like that?! Here are 15 artists who don’t shy away from mentioning the way they can get your juices flowing in the bedroom, on the staircase, on the balcony… and the list goes on and on:
