Now that’s it’s spring, you know what that means: time to switch up your hair!

Many women, myself included, have already jumped at the chance to change up their hair color and style now that the sun is acting like it may just come out to play for more than a few hours. But some people are making drastic changes, like Teyana Taylor.

The singer (and my fitness inspiration) showed off her new cut on Instagram late last week. While most are used to seeing Taylor with long hair, she decided to try something old, but new. She calls it, “#vintagerealness”:

Youssahhhh low down dirty shame.

Taylor also pointed out that a big reason why she was more than ready to cut her hair off is because she’s been taking hair growth pills. She swears by them.

Don’t really understand the purpose of cutting off your hair and then taking hair growth vitamins…unless the big chop was done to get rid of damaged strands? Hey, whatever works.

As for the cut as a whole, I’m loving it! A lot of the hair she wears tends to shroud her face, so you don’t often get to see her bone structure, which is amazing. Plus, as she pointed out, she’s also giving us a Peaches in Low Down Dirty Shame vibe. That could never be a bad thing.

But what do you think? Let us know your thoughts on her finger waves below! Do you have any big hair changes planned for spring?

Iman Shumpert Attempts To Clarify “Empire” Comments, Apologizes To Actors

So yesterday’s LOL news was provided by Iman Shumpert. In case you missed it, the Cleveland Cavaliers player expressed disapproval of “Empire” characters Tiana and Hakeem because he felt that they copied his and girlfriend Teyana Taylor’s likeness/life.

“They’re using my girl’s character, her style, her look and she’s not getting anything for it,” he told sports journalist Chris Haynes. “They didn’t even change her name. They could have at least let my girl audition for the part instead of stealing her character completely.”

While I adore Teyana, I truly felt that her bae was reaching with that one. Iman has since come forward to clarify his comments and according to the 24-year-old, his words were distorted.

“Fans of the show and friends have told us on many occasions that couple favors us but we do not all feel that our lives are being copied/stolen,” he explained to TMZ Sports.

The shooting guard proceeded to apologize to “Empire” stars Bryshere Gray and Serayah McNeill who play Hakeem and Tiana.

“I apologize to the actors on the show because they’re just being professionals and don’t deserve slander that’s not what I was trying to portray and I have to be more careful with my choice of words.”

He then shifted the blame onto Chris, claiming that his words were exaggerated and blown out of proportion.

“I do not appreciate the writer using his questions with my answers to draw quotes like I was making these elaborate answers but that’s the media. The writer took a 2-3 min convo of locker room talk after a GREAT TEAM WIN and made it look like a sit down interview and it wasn’t,” said Iman.

“He twisted words to get the point that he wanted to get across. This is not that serious and though we don’t watch the show we are not against it,” he continued.

Right, blame the media.

FOH: Iman Shumpert Thinks “Empire” Characters Are Based On He And Girlfriend Teyana Taylor

It’s official. Everyone is after a piece of the “Empire” pie. First, 50 Cent claimed they jacked his marketing scheme. Then, Joseline Hernandez joked that Cookie was trying to be like her. Now, Cleveland Cavaliers player Iman Shumpert, of all people, is claiming that he and his girlfriend Teyana Taylor inspired characters Hakeem and Tiana.

“I don’t watch that stuff, man,” he told Northeast Ohio Media Group with what journalist Chris Hayes says was an annoyed look on his face.

Apparently Shumpert is bothered because he believes the network copied Taylor’s style when creating Tiana.

“They’re using my girl’s character, her style, her look and she’s not getting anything for it,” he explained. “They didn’t even change her name. They could have at least let my girl audition for the part instead of stealing her character completely.”

He then went on to discuss Hakeem.

“And come on man, they’re really using a guy with a flat-top like me. Come on. That’s ridiculous. They never called us. We were blindsided. We found out by our family and fans when the show aired.”

Yes, Hakeem does sport a flat-top and Tiana has some pretty big hair, similar to that of Teyana’s, but honestly dude is reaching.

“I don’t see how they can deny it,” he said. “Everybody knows.”

As for whether or not there will be legal action taken against FOX, Shumpert had this to say:

“Her fans are more mad about it than I am,” Shumpert said. “I’m a ball player, but that’s her field. That’s what she does. Me personally, I don’t plan on taking any action but I don’t know about her.”

Uh, okay.

Porsha Williams Responds To Teyana Taylor, But Fails To Get Her Name Right: “I Just Wish Tatiana Would’ve Consulted Her Legal Team”

Earlier this week, Teyana Taylor lashed out at Porsha Williams over the RHoA star’s soon-to-be-released #unbothered t-shirt line. As previously reported, Taylor felt slighted by the name of the line because she has been promoting a clothing line by the very same name. Porsha recently decided to respond to the singer’s rant—even though she mistakenly referred to her as “Tatiana” several times. The verdict is still out on whether or not this was intentional shade.

“I always remain unbothered. I’ve been saying ‘unbothered’ and ‘fleek’ like everybody else on Instagram. Like she said on my comments, I do follow Tatiana or whatever. I follow a lot of people who are in entertainment. I try to support a lot of our young black women doing it in music. I had no idea she had a clothing line. I really don’t have a problem with her having a clothing line called unbothered because my t-shirt is just a t-shirt line. It’s not a clothing line. Furthermore, I just wish Tatiana would’ve consulted her legal team because then she would know that she can’t even trademark the word unbothered anyway. I just thought it was a little distasteful to put the comment on Instagram instead of DM’ing me. She could’ve just DM’d me and said, ‘Hey Porsha, I’d rather you not da da da da,’ and I could’ve put ‘pretty on fleek’ or whatever else. It was just blown out of proportion.”

Williams went on to say that she has zero intentions of halting the release of her t-shirts

“I just want everyone to know that the shirt will be available for pre-order on Sunday.”

In a more lighthearted video, Porsha and her “Dish Nation” co-hosts also poked fun at the legal war that Taylor has attempted to wage against her.

While we’d love to say the drama ended there, you know good and well that it did not. Teyana quickly took to Instagram and Twitter to respond to the reality star’s statement and she’s pretty worked up.

Porsha Williams responds to Teyana Taylor's stolen clothing line allegations and shades her in the most unintentional way.

Teyana Taylor Confronts Porsha Williams, Accuses Her Of Shady Business Practices

Unfortunately, it looks like Porsha Williams may have acquired another enemy. This time, it doesn’t appear to be a personal feud, but more of a business-related misunderstanding. Yesterday on Instagram, Williams announced the February 8 debut of her first t-shirt, which reads: “#unbothered.” Apparently, Taylor has been developing a clothing line by the same name for at least the past month. When she stumbled across Porsha’s announcement, she was wasted no time confronting the “Real Housewives of Atlanta” star.

“No it will not be coming out because unbothered is my clothing line, legally as well & u follow me so I’m sure you know what it is. So you should take this down,” Taylor wrote beneath the photo of Williams’ shirt.




Of course, there’s a chance that Williams wasn’t intentionally trying to step on Taylor’s toes when she designed the t-shirt, but it appears that the “Maybe” singer took it very personally. The reality star did not comply with Teyana’s demands to remove the image, which leads us to believe that she’s “unbothered” by the singer’s threats. I suppose we’ll have to wait and see whether or not Williams makes her big debut once February 8 rolls around.

Nowadays, celebrity Christmas cards and photoshoots are pretty much an expected part of the holidays. And while we haven’t seen the usual adorable shots from Diddy and his kids, or the more over-the-top images from the Kardashians (thanks goodness for small mercies), other celebrities are definitely in the holiday spirit, and sending good cheer through their awesome pictures. Beyoncé sent some colorful cards to her fans (including famous fan Laverne Cox), Teyana Taylor and her boyfriend Iman Shumpert did a hilarious photoshoot straight out of the movie Step Brothers, and Ciara and baby Future put on their Santa hats to help him prepare for his first Christmas. Check out their cards and photos, and a few others from Grant Hill & Tamia, as well as Adrienne and Chris Bosh, that warmed our hearts:

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 Is So Grateful She Didn’t Do The Aaliyah Biopic

November 11th, 2014 - By Brande Victorian

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.

From EurWeb 

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.
