Extended "Love And Hip Hop Hollywood" Trailer

I know what you’re thinking, another “Love and Hip Hop Hollywood” trailer. Yes another one. But the reason we’re posting this new one is because not only does it provide a bit more insight about all the characters, this is the first time Lil Fizz makes an appearance. And I know I’m not the only one who thought that Lil Fizz was the finest member of B2K back in the day.

But before him, we watch Soulja Boi beef with his new girlfriend about cutting off his ex girlfriends.

Judging by how often Teairra Marie seems to be cussing, fussing and fighting, she’s likely to be the villain of this season. Initially, I thought Ray J just played her whole life but there may be something else going on with her because in every scene she was angry at somebody. I mean every scene.

And then Lil Fizz is shown tonguing down another woman. That would be all fine and good if his baby mama didn’t seem to have such an issue with the women he’s dating. Wonder if this is going to be another Traci Steele and Baby Drew type situation.

Either way, it looks interesting as all get out. And I’ll be tuning in to see what’s what.

The show premieres on VH1 on Monday, September 15 at 8 p.m.

Cornrows have been popular since the ’70s, but everyone (and their mother) was wearing them in the early ’00s, including many of the famous fellas whose music we do or did jam to. Here are 10 celebrity men who we were glad to see leave these looks behind:

We told you earlier this week that VH1 is bringing you yet another installment in the “Love and Hip Hop” franchise, and that is the Hollywood version of the show. It will star Ray J, Soulja Boy, Omarion and many more people trying to make moves in the industry. VH1 described the upcoming program, which will debut on September 18 at 8 p.m., like this:

“A new group of R&B and hip hop hopefuls have their eyes on the prize and are ready to deliver the shock, drama and scandal as only the #1 social show of the summer can do. With the music industry constantly evolving, these artists’ unwavering ambition keeps them hustling to stay at the top and willing to lay it all on the line.”

And just that quick, a teaser has been released of what viewers can expect from the show when it finally premieres. In it, we see quick glimpses of Soulja Boy, Ray J and Omarion moving around with the women in their lives. And near the end of the short trailer we find out that Omarion’s girlfriend, Apryl Jones, doesn’t get along too well with her man’s mother, Leslie Burrell. When asked how by Jones how she feels about her, Burrell tells her, “How I feel right now, I do not like you.”

Yikes!

Not going to lie, this show looks like it will be entertaining (with a side of ratchet), and wherever Lil Fizz goes, my eyes will follow. But check out the teaser for yourself below and let us know if you think you will tune in come September.

You’ll Never Guess Whose Cute Kid This Is…

Look at that smile!

This cute little guy is Kameron, the son of former B2K member Lil Fizz (he was the one with the curly hair always trying to rap).

Fizz’s real name is Dreux Frederic, and he will be one of the new cast members of “Love and Hip Hop Hollywood” alongside the likes of Ray J and former B2K bandmate, Omarion. He has been doing the independent rapping thing since the group split in 2004, as well as a little bit of acting (did anybody see Steppin: The Movie? Yeah, me neither). And during that time he had a son, cutie Kameron Frederic, with ex-girlfriend Moniece Slaughter. The little guy is growing up fast, and as you can see, he looks a great deal like his handsome pops. Ten years later and I’m still out here fawning over Lil Fizz. He still looks good!

But back to the task at hand…check out more shots of Kameron and his pops below and on the next page.

Omarion, whose real name is Omari Ishmael Grandberry, and his girlfriend Apryl Jones welcomed their son Megaa into the world recently and the couple are just tickled pink about his arrival as they should be. They both posted some pretty adorable pictures on Instagram and Omarion’s birth announcement is to die for.

Two days ago, he uploaded the above picture with the caption: “Babe @aprylsjones [emoji for water] just broke. #abouttobeafather #mylilME&herlilHIM [prayer hand emoji] [100 emoji] wish us health. Bless up!

Then today, he posted this adorable shot of him holding little Megaa and wrote:

This caption gave me so much life. First props to Apryl for pulling off this type of delivery and Omarion’s excitement over the birth of his boy is just too precious. And we can’t forget the hashtags.

Apryl also uploaded a photo with her two faves resting in bed.

A few days before her water broke, Apryl made Omarion her man crush Monday, which is not at all unusual but she also seemed to make an announcement about their future as a couple.

We certainly wish the best for these two and their son Megaa.

Who doesn’t love baby showers?
Singer Omarion and his lady Apryl Jones, who is toting a “bump, bump, bump” (Get it!? B2k? Nevermind…) are expecting their unborn son to arrive in the next few weeks. To celebrate this new stage in their lives, the two threw a beautiful baby shower in Los Angeles this past weekend.

The mother-to-be wore a custom Haus of Milani gown that was both sheer and adorned with lace blue and coral embroidery, which hugged her baby bump. The bash took place poolside with friends (including the Haus of Milani designer and Karen Civil) and family hanging out and taking pictures. Both Jones and O looked great, and happy, on their big day.

And not too long ago, Omarion spoke about the conception of their son on The Breakfast Club and didn’t hold anything back:

“I really have a special lady in my life and we just connected on that level and it was time for that. It wasn’t planned but it was a real turnt up night. It was during my birthday weekend, it was one of those things and it was kind of like a question like ‘baby are you sure’ and I was like ‘baby I’m sure.’

It’s kind of like one of those things like, should I pull out?” he continued. “And, I don’t know and then it was like okay.”

Check out more shots of the baby shower attire and designs below and share your thoughts.

Former B2K singer Omarion Grandberry is expecting his first child with girlfriend, Apryl Jones. And interestingly, he recently discussed the decision the led to the conception of his unborn son. Though he says that the pregnancy wasn’t exactly something they had been planning for a long time, he seemed to allude to the idea that he intentionally got her pregnant after nearly a year of dating.

“I really have a special lady in my life and we just connected on that level and it was time for that,” he told The Breakfast Club. “It wasn’t planned but it was a real turnt up night. It was during my birthday weekend, it was one of those things and it was kind of like a question like ‘baby are you sure’ and I was like ‘baby I’m sure.'”

“It’s kind of like one of those things like, should I pull out?” he continued. “And, I don’t know and then it was like okay.”

The singer-turned-actor and rumored reality star  danced around recent reports that he’s slated to appear on VH1’s “Love & Hip Hop LA.”

“I can’t confirm that,” said the father-to-be. “I’ve been doing this for a long time—entertainment—and I think there is another part of me that people don’t really understand. So if I did get the opportunity to let people in my life and get another opportunity to understand who I am, I wouldn’t mind it.”

As for those long-lived gay rumors, O says:

“I’m so tired of the world trying to sex-play Omarion. They want me to be gay so bad. I come up from a time where privacy and mystique was important. So a lot of the chicks that I’m sure y’all know that I definitely smashed, I’m not going to discuss that.”

Way Before That Hiatus From Music: 9 Big Songs You Probably Didn’t Know Keri Hilson Wrote

The last few years haven’t been the greatest for Keri Hilson when it comes to music. She hasn’t put out an album since 2010, and that last effort, No Boys Allowed, wasn’t necessarily album of the year caliber. And let’s be honest, people haven’t always been the nicest when talking about the singer, probably because of past allegations of ish talking when it comes to other big singers like Beyoncé and Ciara. But aside from all that, Hilson is really a talented artist, especially when it comes to her writing abilities.  In fact, she actually has helped write many hits for big names as a part of the writing team, The Clutch (which included Candice Clotiel “Gg” Nelson, Ezekiel “Zeke” Lewis, Patrick Michael “J. Que” Smith, and Balewa Muhammad) as well as on her own. So what songs have you been jamming to that she contributed to or wrote on her own? Let’s take a look and see shall we?

Maybe it’s because I’m almost 6’0″ myself, but it’s interesting to me to see how many fellas in Hollywood are a lot shorter in person than they look on television. They make up for a small size with big talent, big personality and/or big enthusiasm on-stage and on-screen, and they even date the most beautiful women. But still…we can’t help but notice. Here are 14 celebrity men who we could fit in the back of our pocket.

Omarion Talks Figuring Out A Good Girl From A Groupie, And The Greatest Lesson Women Taught Him

If you didn’t get the memo, Omarion is out here really trying to get back in where he fits in within the R&B game. He sort of faded into the background after his massive success with songs like “Touch,” “Entourage,” and others when Chris Brown came on the scene with his baby face and sick dance moves. But there’s no time like the present for a comeback, and after receiving a good response after putting out the track “MIA,” Omarion has a new album on the way. He sat down with Vibe Vixen to talk about the project. However, the most interesting tidbit from that interview was on the art of deciphering between a groupie and a woman he’d want to have something serious with as an artist in the limelight. Maybach O, who says he was raised by only women, also talked about the power of a woman and the greatest thing he ever learned from us. Let’s discuss:

Despite the few women (or many, whatever) who throw themselves at artists, Omarion actually found himself a girlfriend. But it wasn’t easy, seeing as he claims it was hard to find a woman he could take seriously:

“It’s important how the relationship starts: the place that you meet, the setting, the class of friends they have, the homies you’re with. All of that sets the tempo. You can tell when a woman’s a woman [because] no matter what setting, she knows how to handle herself. The club is a really good example because it’s a lot going on. Any girl that looks nice, 9 times out of 10, there’s going to be a million dudes flocking her, and she handles it. A “bottle rat,” chicks that go to the club but they can’t pay for their own drink, they got in for free so they want to act super friendly with you to drink up all your Isht. If I’m in club setting, I would pay attention to if they want to stick around or they ask to stick around like, “Hey do you mind if me and my girls kick it with y’all?”

He continued to describe a respectable woman in the club:

“Those are the kind of chicks that go out to have a good time, and if they’re vibin,’ they’re vibin.’ If they’re not, they’ll do their thing. But you won’t see them at every other guy’s table.”

He was then asked what he thinks about the power women have over a man and his moods. He says that it’s truly in a woman’s nature to know how to nurture:

“It’s the ability to change things. I remember a friend of mine got shot and he called me. I was stressing. My cousin came to me while we were talking on the phone. She just started rubbing my shoulders and I totally forgot what I was mad about. She calmed me all the way down and I was good. Women have that power. I don’t know what to call it, but it’s that power, that nurturing power. The ability to change the situation by nurturing you. The encouragement, the nourishment, a woman just knows how to do that.”

And what is the greatest thing he learned from a woman?

“Patience. Women are emotional and it takes men to learn this about women. I just happened to be raised by all women so I got some of the pieces earlier in my life, but patience is a big part with the woman because you guys change so much. How you feel at 20 is different than at 14, and when you get your period, you act different. The greatest thing I learned from a woman was patience and sensitivity because you can’t always be tough. You have to have some sensitivity when dealing with a woman and her concerns, and things she goes through.”

We see you Maybach O! Check out the rest of his interview over at Vibe Vixen and let us know what you think of his evaluations of the women he deals with below.
