Celebrity Weekend Wrap-up! Anthony Hamilton’s Latest Addition, Eve Back To The Big Screen + More!
Hey loves! The celebs left me with some nice tidbits to share with you guys: there’s movie news, wedding bells, baby news and more! The wrap-up wouldn’t be complete without a little drama, right? Right. Check it out!
The Hamiltons Welcome A Baby Boy!
It looks like congratulations are in order for Anthony Hamilton and his wife Tarsha welcomed a baby boy into the world this weekend. Anthony tweeted on Saturday that a healthy baby boy named Princeton Harris was finally here! This makes baby number three for the Hamiltons as a couple (they also had twin boys in 2010) and child number six for Anthony who has three older children (all boys ages 21, 19 and 14). Congrats to them!
Nas Pulling Out His Cape
This argument over Gwyneth Paltrow’s use of the n-word has not died down one bit and now, Nas is in on the action. In an interview with CBS Local, Nas was very clear that Gwyneth is is homie and he will “slap the Shyte out of somebody for Gwyneth Paltrow.” He went on to say that she gets a pass for using the term because she is a “real n-word” and that’s that. Nas, this certainly isn’t going to win you any points with your fans who don’t like the word and expect more from you. Check out the video on SOHH.
Michelle Williams On To Something New
People always focus on Beyonce and Kelly Rowland but Michelle Williams has made quite a mark for herself in the gospel music and Broadway worlds. But now, she’s moving on to something totally different: fashion. According to Coco and Creme, Michelle will be working with Koshie O., an African clothing brand, on some pieces for their 2013 Spring/Summer line. Michelle’s pieces will be part of “The Koshie O. Woman” brand which will feature celebrity women they deem strong as well as their fashionable ideas. Go Michelle, keep switching things up!
Eve back to the Big Screen
We might not be getting any new music any time soon but rapper Eve is ready to show off her acting chops. She tweeted out some pictures of her in costume for her new movie, “Bounty Killer.” We can only assume she’s a zombie by her makeup. No word on a release date but I’m sure we’ll hear more as it wraps up filming and post-production. Check out a couple of more pictures on Allhiphop.com as well a picture of another rapper they compared her to!
Chris Bosh fighting over custody…again!
It seems like every time there’s a big basketball event, Chris Bosh is at war with his daughter Trinity’s mom, Alison Mathis. This time, according to TMZ, Chris is begging the court to let him take his daughter to London during the 2012 Summer Olympics. Alison’s argument is that there will be a terrorist threat at the time and if Chris wants to go under those threats that’s fine but she doesn’t want it for her daughter. That would be an okay argument if she didn’t try to block Chris from taking Trinity to every big basketball event (they went to court a few months ago because Alison didn’t want Chris taking Trinity to All-Star Weekend events). A judge decided that a child mediator should make the final ruling and so far, they’re still waiting on that decision.
Here Comes the Bride
The wedding bells have rung and congratulations are in order for Matthew McConaughey and his bride Camilla Alves. After six years and two children, they finally said “I Do” in an intimate ceremony in front of a small group of friends and family in Texas. According to PEOPLE, guests stayed in tents Matthew pitched himself on the couple’s property. PEOPLE will have all the details and pictures in next week’s issue.
Introducing: Emeli Sande
I told you guys that our British “family” wasn’t playing when it comes to soul music and I’ve got another one for you this week thanks to SoulBounce.com. Emeli Sande is affectionately known as the “Other Adele” since that’s her first name but that’s pretty much where the comparison ends. Apparently, Emeli has been out for over a year and although I’m just learning her name, I remember her song “Next To Me.” Her album, Our Version Of Events, was recently released in the United States and it’s received quite the reception. The album has fused pop and r&b into one and the result is something really delightful. Make sure you check her out at emelisande.com.
