I don’t know about you, but I love and miss the ’90s. So when anyone tells me they’re having a ’90s party or event, I pull out my tights, my brightest colors, my chunky sweaters and my baby hair to participate in full effect. Unfortunately, I didn’t get an invite to Fabolous’ 37th birthday party this week (not cool, Fab, not cool…), but the rapper threw himself a ’90s party that included appearances from a lot of his famous friends, and of course, his lady, Emily B. Check out pics from what looked like a poppin’ party below, and on the next few pages:

Teyana Taylor has a lot going on right now. The G.O.O.D music singer just wrapped a tour with August Alsina in September and last Tuesday she dropped her first studio album “VII.” One thing you won’t see Teyana Taylor dabbling in, though, is the upcoming Aaliyah biopic. While Teyana is a diehard Aaliyah fan — and not a bad actress — she has no interest in stepping near the Lifetime movie. And after seeing the backlash, that clearly was a good move.
Check out what Teyana had to say about not sending in her audition tape, the significance of her album title, “VII,” and her relationship with Pharrell after stepping away from his label.
Acclaimed singer-songwriter and musician Sebastian Mikael returns today with a new music video for his latest single “Made For Me,” a stirring duet with Teyana Taylor.
After the release of his debut album Speechless earlier this year, “Made For Me” follows the success of Sebastian Mikael’s “Last Night” featuring Wale which amassed over 2.5 million views on YouTube.
“Made For Me” was shot in Palmdale, CA and captures the song’s theme of being in love when it feels like the whole world is against you. In the video the two devoted lovers navigate the desert as a mysterious figure pursues, and when everything else seems to be falling apart their resilient love holds them together.
The video was produced by Complex Media in partnership with Pepsi as a part of the Pepsi Pulse Artist Spotlight accelerator program. The program features a new artist every month and is a collaborative effort between brand, publisher and musician to increase the visibility of emerging artists such as Sebastian Mikael, Nico & Vinz and Mayaeni.

People are always looking to twist or criticize Teyana Taylor’s words, but you may have noticed the G.O.O.D Music singer has been doing a lot less clapping back at haters online these days and now we know why. When Teyana game by to discuss her new album VII, she told us her boo Iman Shumpert makes all the difference when it comes to internalizing and responding to cyber bullies. She told us:
“It’s different when you’re single and with your girls and somebody talks some sh*t and you’re like ‘I’m bout to go in.’ But when you’re in love and you’re happy and that person is your peace of mind, pretty much anything they say he’s like ‘Babe stop paying attention’ and you’re like, ‘alright, you’re right.’
“It’s definitely different than how I used to be, but now that I’m in a different place in my life I actually don’t feed into it t all.”
Teyana also explained why she and Iman aren’t afraid to share their love with their social media fans, let alone the world, and her new view on haters. Watch the video up top and tell us what you think.
Once Teyana Taylor decided to leave the ratchetry for the birds and actually focus on her singing career, a world of opportunity has been opening up for her.
The latest power move by the singer/dancer is a full length spread in ELLE magazine shot by Katie Friedman around her native New York hood, Harlem. The ELLE crew and TT hit iconic locations like Rucker Park, 125th street, and the Big L mural and Teyana surprisingly slayed in fall’s hottest fashion looks including Alexander Wang, Calvin Klein and Stella McCartney. The singer stays true to her signature urban.

For many people, when they first get on reality television, it’s because they feel as though they have some talent, but haven’t been discovered yet. It’s a way to make yourself be seen by the right people. But, too many of those people forget their reasons for getting on their chosen shows in the first place, and find themselves stuck to the allure of infamy, because it’s easier.
However, there are some people who the entertainment industry took notice of, and didn’t hold (some of) their ridiculous behavior against them. There are also people who focused on their talent, and kept a cool head in manufactured drama.
So, here’s to these participants of reality television who the entertainment industry looked beyond the reality shows that they were on, and gave them a chance regardless.
Ray Rice has been suspended indefinitely by the NFL, but the scandal surrounding his infamous knockout tape is far from over. In addition to the NFL being probed for possibly attempting to cover up the severity of Ray’s assault, there have also been some salacious claims being made on the back end.
Earlier this week, Baller Alert shared a blind item sent from a person who seemed to be implying that Teyana Taylor and Ray Rice had been carrying on an inappropriate relationship for a few years. The snitch went on to claim that their relationship is what led to Ray assaulting his wife, Janay. The post reads:
“This young mystery singer/socialite has been involved in a lot of drama as of late but no one is aware of this. In recent news football player Ray Rice and fiancée were arrested in Atlantic City due to an altercation between the two. The altercation occurred when fiancée Janay Palmer saw texts received from the mystery socialite trying to persuade Rice to leave his family to be with her. In college Rice reportedly dated the socialite’s best friend and mother of her God child but that didn’t stop her from perusing him. Yet she has a problem when the shoe is on the other foot.
Rice has reportedly sponsored events for the socialite’s men’s fashion consulting company [name redacted]. Rice made his decision to do away with the socialite and all of her drama by marrying his long time girlfriend and mother of his child, Palmer. Word on the street is that she is also responsible for the break up between a singer and her NBA boyfriend.”
There were also several flirty tweets exchanged between Ray and Teyana that date back to 2009, and somehow resurfaced. In one particular series of tweets, Teyana teased Ray for dating “man looking girls” who are a “lil ruff in tha face.” Even rapper and reality star Joe Budden seemed to imply that he had some level of knowledge about Ray and Teyana’s affair.
During a recent interview with Power 99 FM, Teyana responded to the rumors, saying:
“No one received a text from me. I had nothing to do with that. These were also the same blogs that said that I accused Colin Kaepernik of raping me and when the actual girl came out and said who she was, there was no apology to Teyana. Nobody cleaned it up. So now I’m at a point where all I can do is laugh at it. People feel like they know your life and it’s so sad, because it’s our people. This is a big matter. ESPN hasn’t said my name. No sports blogs have said my name BUT a whole bunch of OUR people. Our people who want it to be true so bad but I can’t entertain those type of things.”
She also spoke on the nature of her relationship with Ray.
“What I won’t downplay is me and Ray. We used to stay in the same building. He dated my best friend. I was on the phone with her and she was laughing like, ‘don’t even feed into that.’ I never touched that man. That’s my homie. I don’t condone what he did, and I don’t condone what his wife did. They need to work that out and figure it out, however, she shouldn’t have hit him and he shouldn’t hit her. I feel like there is a double standard because sometimes we don’t realize that a man is still a man but Ray shouldn’t have put his hands on her and she shouldn’t have put her hands on him.
I’m in a full blown relationship so don’t drag me into that. I never touched that man. What y’all not going to say is that I was the reason why that happened in that elevator.”

Not that any of us were sitting around, holding our breath and waiting for these two to actually make it down the aisle or anything, but Brandon Jennings recently confirmed that he and Tae Heckard called off their engagement. It’s unclear why the two decided to part ways, but Brandon recently tweeted a special thank you to MTO after they reported that Tae may have cheated on him with her ex-boyfriend, Nelly. According to reports, Tae was sneaking around to see him behind Brandon’s back.
Mediatakeout good looking. I ain’t even know that. — BRANDON JENNINGS (@BrandonJennings) August 29, 2014
But that’s not why the engagement is off. I been dead that — BRANDON JENNINGS (@BrandonJennings) August 29, 2014
Where Ashanti at? — BRANDON JENNINGS (@BrandonJennings) August 29, 2014
Brandon and Tae’s short-lived relationship was a popular one among gossip outlets considering the messy nature of it all. As you may recall, Brandon dated and was purportedly engaged to Tae’s former friend, Teyana Taylor. We imagine Teyana is probably somewhere laughing hysterically at the irony of all of this, considering that a lack of loyalty is what brought Tae and Brandon together and apparently is what caused their relationship to fall apart as well.
A few weeks ago, we reported that there may have been a budding romance between Teyana Taylor and New York Knick Iman Shumpert. Shortly after, the actress and singer confirmed that Iman is, in fact, the mystery man that she has been spending all of this time with. During her recent “106 & Park” appearance, Teyana gushed about her new beau.
“You know, his birthday just passed,” Teyana said of a beach photo of her and Iman. “We was in Hawaii for his birthday and it was fun, you know.”
Apparently the shooting guard must be doing something right, as Teyana says she’s in a great place.
“I’m very happy. We getting it right, you know what I’m saying? He’s amazing. I can’t even stop smiling. He’s simply amazing and he never fails to amaze me.”
Teyana also spoke on the upcoming basketball season.
“This season is going to be a great season. He’s so focused. We was in Florida and I’m literally with him shooting in the gym. Watching him, he’s so focused and he’s ready. I’m ready to see him go to work.”
As you may recall, Teyana made headlines earlier this year for the intense love triangle involving her ex-friend, Tae Heckard, and ex-fiancée, Brandon Jennings.

Teyana Taylor clearly has a thing for professional basketball players. And Iman Shumpert obviously has a thing for R&B singers. But do they have a thing for each other? At this point we’re pretty sure that things are over between Teyana and her purported ex-fiancé, Brandon Jennings. As you may recall, the Detroit Pistons point guard is now in an exclusive relationship with Teyana’s ex-friend, Tae Heckard. Things have also been over with Iman and his R&B singer ex-girlfriend, Elle Varner, for quite some time now. Elle confirmed the split last fall on Twitter.
“I’m single….please don’t ask me a million questions I won’t answer any of them,” she tweeted.
As the saying goes, one woman’s trash is another woman’s treasure and it appears that Teyana and Iman may have found love with one another. While discussing her breakup from Brandon with The Breakfast Club, Teyana revealed that she was already seeing someone new.
“I’m happy. I’ve moved on. I’m so happy and the n***a I’m with right now is making me feel so beautiful,” she expressed.
Though she didn’t reveal the identity of her new beau at the time, Jill over at Jocks And Stiletto Jill may have already connected the dots. Teyana shared a very intimate photo (above) of herself with her mystery guy yesterday and captioned it, “Happy Birthday baby.. #ILoveU.” As it turns out, Iman’s birthday is today. The other clue was dropped last week when the New York Knicks shooting guard shared a video of himself vibing out to Teyana’s new single “Maybe.” So far, neither of the two have officially confirmed the relationship, but it’s probably only a matter of time.
Do you think they make a cute couple?
