The 2013 Billboard Awards have begun and our favorite couple showed out on the red carpet this evening!
Showing up in all black everything, Amber Rose and her boo/baby daddy/maybe husband looked super cute exchanging smiles and some, err, tongue. Wiz looked very Kanye-esque licking Amber’s head on the red carpet, because we totally saw Amber’s ex pull that same pose a few year’s back when the two were together. Think Wiz was throwing subtle shade or is it just that Amber’s head tastes just like candy?

Now if you saw Kelly Rowland’s stunning dress at the Oscar’s this February, you’d fully expect plenty of men to have pushed up on the lovely singer. But what surprised most of us was the man who got his flirt on with the former Destiny’s Child member on camera: Jamie Foxx.
While Kelly was working the red carpet as a correspondent, Jamie basically…well, he did this:
Naturally, after that, people started wondering if something more was going on between the two. But now, nearly two months later Kelly finally addressed the speculation, telling radio station Shade 45:
“That was very weird. That’s my buddy. I love Jamie. We’re actually going to do a film together. That’s actually what he was getting at – the film.”
Oh, sweet innocent Kelly. She might have been thinking film, Jamie, on the other hand, probably had another type of film in mind…ya’ll know how he gets down. What you think?
Claudia Jordan Comes For Omarosa: ‘This Woman Had A Red Carpet At Her Fiance’s Funeral…How Upset Were You?’
Claudia Jordan has a problem with Omarosa.
So what’s up with that you say? Well, despite the fact that she’s now a woman of the cloth and suffered the tragedy of losing her fiancé, Michael Clarke Duncan, a lot of folks still don’t like her. Just ask La Toya Jackson. No, wait, just ask Claudia Jordan.
You see, Claudia and Omarosa used to be friends, but had a falling out after Michael Clarke Duncan’s funeral.
Apparently, Omarosa didn’t like the fact that Claudia had posted a picture on Instagram from her fiancé Michael Clarke Duncan’s funaral as she laid him to rest. Claudia, however, feels that was a minor offense if it was one at all because the picture she posted was in tribute to the Green Mile actor.

Just when I thought we’d survived the BET Awards unscathed this year, a video with white rapper Machine Gun Kelly talking all kinds of reckless on the red carpet before the event pops up. The comments he made aren’t the network’s fault but obviously he felt the environment was an appropriate one to make the statements in question and that, on top of what he was saying, is a major problem.
You probably don’t know who Machine Gun Kelly is and that’s both okay and a good thing. As I mentioned he’s a rapper, and he’s most known for his single “I’m a wild boy,” with Wacka Flocka Flame. After his commentary with Baller Alert before the BET Awards Sunday, he’ll most likely now be known as an ignorant white boy who talked about black women and their apprehension to give 0-ral sex—which they do quite well when they actually do it—on the red carpet.
To be fair, the interviewer, a black girl, took him down this fetishized road to begin with by commenting that she’s chocolate and heard he likes black girls. MGK begins by saying his daughter is black (bi-racial for those who subscribe to the Morgan Freeman school of thought) and then without pause we went from “I have a black daughter” to “black girls give the best head.” Um, is that how he wound up with a black daughter or something?
The conversation went like this:
BA Reporter: Okay that’s funny because usually we’re told that we don’t.
Machine Gun Kelly: Okay, now this is what y’all do. Y’all either give the best head or you say that you don’t give head. White girls, they just give head so it just like….
BA Reporter: So the ones who say they don’t usually give the best?
Machine Gun Kelly: No, no, It’s not that you don’t give the best head it’s that most of y’all are saying, “I don’t do that unless you’re my man.” [Insert ghetto girl neck roll] You know what I’m saying? Where you girls just need to show your skills ’cause Black girls give the best head 100 percent. It’s just a difference.”
And now we’re going to interrupt this unscheduled program to bring you an angry white man rant because a black woman who overheard this conversation decided she wanted no parts of it and walked away.
Machine Gun Kelly: B**** walk the f*** away. F***ing dirty ignorant B****. uhh b****. Weak a**dress and fake a** Louis Vuitton purse. I’ll go in on this b****. Lipstick all f***ed up, here everywhere. Get the f*** out of here. You look like you just got done giving h**d. But anyway motherf***er, that’s what needs to happen man.
Wait, she’s the one who’s ignorant? I’m curious if that’s how he goes about getting black women to give him head and it possibly could be because from start to finish the tall glass of chocolate milk reporter was all smiles for the camera, despite his ignorance and all out disrespect. What’s that line about people only treating you how you allow them to? I’m curious if in that moment she forgot how close she was to being the dirty, best head giving b**** on the other end of his taunt?
You know, at first you may want to take pride in your bedroom skills when MGK made his comment about black girls and head but that quickly fades away, if it ever even entered your mind to begin with, as you think about this man making a sharp left from talking about his black daughter to black women given good head and seemingly only being good for two purposes: oral pleasure and baby making. What else is new, right?
There’s really nothing cute or flattering about MGK’s comments nor the comfort in which he felt saying it and topping that off with the lashing out at a black woman as a dirty b**** only further elevates the image that we’re only useful for those two purposes I mentioned a minute ago. Our ancestors got used to being treated this way behind closed doors for 400 years, we unfortunately had to make peace with black rappers making us feel this way with their lyrics, and now it seems a new breed of white wild boys is assimilating that same degrading culture, although interestingly it’s not aimed at the white girls who, you know, just give head all willy nilly like he suggested. Once again black women find themselves being eveyone’s favorite target with no one to defend them, including the black reporter who had an opportunity to do just that. Where are Nas, The Dream, and Russell Simmons when you need them? Oh, my bad, they’re probably still making sure Gwyneth isn’t catching too much flack for being a real n*****. Meanwhile this man calls a black woman a b**** on camera and goes on about their mouthpieces and nobody says a word.
Thankfully, MGK is probably on minute 14 of his “budding” career so we won’t have to deal with him much longer, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t a slew of wild boys like him waiting in the wings to spout even more distasteful words the minute someone puts a mic in front of them. And let’s not forget the impertinent ilk of rappers already before us who want black women to do nothing more than bust it wide open for a real n**** before they go and wife a white one. Interesting how we’re all ho*s one minute yet get criticized for reserving our mouth game for select individuals isn’t it? The fact that most of us use our heads before we actually give head is in fact why what we do give is the best. How about somebody go make a rap song about that?

Greetings Noirette stylistas and fashionistas! To be honest with you, this hasn’t been the most exciting week for fashion. For the most part, a lot of celebs flew overseas to London and thought they’d make their best fashion statements there. Most folks were caught out looking underwhelming, but these four celebrities wore fits that at least caught our eye and kept our attention. Time to figure out if they stood out for being hot or a hot mess. Let’s get started.
Hey hey now! Kelly Rowland attended the Glamour Women of the Year Awards in London this week where she picked up a “Woman of the Year” accolade for being “Best TV personality.” She stunned on the red carpet in this black and white Maria Grachvogel dress. The halter dress was a sleek number that gave the singer/TV personality the chance to showcase her toned arms. She kept the hair straight and sleek as well, wore a simple bangle with a few rings and large hoops and showed folks how to do the statuesque look to a T. Loving the dress, loving the hair (though I probably would have worn it up), and she just looks all around fab. Check out the back too! Steal.
The biggest names in pop music assembled in Vegas last night for the Billboard Music Awards. And in true rock star fashion, they were dressed to the max! Alicia Keys performed with Stevie Wonder in black curve-hugging Azzedine Alaïa couture, showing off those baby making hips. Jordin Sparks lit up the “white” carpet in a lace mini dress by Diane Von Furstenberg, before shutting down the stage with her emotional rendition of “I Will Always Love You,” in a special tribute to the late Whitney Houston. And those are just two of our favorites.
Check out the best and worst looks from the evening at StyleBlazer.com.

Though the television season is winding down, there’s one new show (and particularly one man) we’re looking forward to this spring and summer. Michael Ealy’s USA series “Common Law” just debuted and we already can’t get enough of him and those dreamy eyes. He’s known for playing heavier or romantic roles but this time he’s flexing his comedic chops in the buddy cop show.
But seriously, does it matter what type of role Michael’s playing? Either way, we swoon hardcore over this man. Though we’d love seeing him with little on, he looks amazing in a suit or dressed casually in jeans and a button down. A fashionably well-rounded man is always StyleBlazer approved.

The White House Correspondents’ Dinner is less about politics and more about fashion and fun. Everyone lets loose (President Barack Obama name checked Young Jeezy during his speech!) and celebs put their best stiletto forward. First Lady Michelle Obama clearly stole the show in a strapless, multi-colored Naeem Khan dress. Our other favorites included Kerry Washington’speach Calvin Klein confection and Viola Davis‘ fire engine red Amsale gown. In the midst of the gowns and elaborate designs, Alicia Keys rocked a Diane von Furstenberg dress with a cut-out neckline that was cute, but seemed a bit too casual for such a black tie affair.
Peep a few of the celebs who hit the red carpet at a StyleBlazer.com.

Last night in NYC, R&B divas Solange Knowles and Ashanti hit the red carpet for a good cause. They attended the 6th annual DKMS Linked Against Blood Cancer gala in their most fabulous evening gowns, and caught everybody’s attention for their looks (and for their arm candy–we see you with Nelly again Ms. Ashanti!). Let’s take a look at their fly fashions from last night and figure out if their looks are steal-worthy, or if they should have stopped.
Solange took over the red carpet last night in this flawless white structural gown that was simple up top, but very detailed from the waist on down. The extra material around the hips opened to get back to a sleek skirt with a gorgeous train, and she accessorized with a gold cuff that matched the gold-plated piece in the middle of the gown. Looks like she kept the makeup to an absolute minimum, and left the fro at home to straighten her locks and wear them in a neat bun.
I think Solange looks pretty freaking amazing. While white gowns with little beading, color or accessories can often come off dull, this one without all that seems more on the funky and futuristic side. The minimal jewelry is also a genius touch. She rocked it. Again. Steal.
