From colorful, outrageous wigs to a more toned down look, YMCMB’s stunning leading lady covers the overseas L’uomo Vogue.
A few months back, former MMA fighter War Machine (Jonathan Paul Koppenhaver) brutally beat his ex-girlfriend porn star Christy Mack, and now thinks she deserves more.
Mack says War Machine broke up with her in May but for some reason showed up at her house at 2 AM on a Friday. She says he walked in, didn’t say a word but unleashed a beating on her friend. War Machine threw the friend out of the house and then she says he allegedly made her strip and shower in front of him, then beating began her resulting in 18 broken bones around her eyes, a broken nose, missing teeth, a fractured rib and ruptured liver. Mack says War Machine also “sawed much of my hair off with a dull knife.” He also threatened to rape her but was unable to perform. She ran out of the house naked, begging neighbors to help her, which one did and took her to the hospital.
War Machine was a fugitive for about a week until he was caught by U.S. Marshals and Simi Valley police in a hotel. Oh, and Dog the Bounty Hunter was present.
Since then, War Machine is facing 32 counts, multiple counts of battery, strangulation, kidnapping, coercion, burglary, and sexual assault– in addition to 2 counts of attempted murder against Mack. War Machine thinks he shouldn’t be charged at all and Mack deserves worse than what she got– well according to his handwritten letter from jail that TMZ obtained:
But look out for the #FREEWAR merchandise.
Thank God Mack is recovering well. Check out the video below.
Even if War Machine was attacked by Mack’s boyfriend first, there is NO WAY she deserve that brutal beating– War Machine is a trained professional! Domestic violence is NOT okay.
Kelis’s milkshake may have brought all the boys to the yard, but it turns out she’s a Cordon Bleu-trained saucier. She invited MUNCHIES into the kitchen to teach us how to make her signature jerk sauce.
Scottish singer-songwriter, political activist and philanthropist Annie Lennox made a bold statement following Beyonce’s epic 16-minute 2014 MTV VMA performance in a new interview with LGBT website PrideSource.
“I would call that ‘feminist lite,” Lennox said. “L-I-T-E. I’m sorry. It’s tokenistic to me. I mean, I think she’s a phenomenal artist — I just love her performances — but I’d like to sit down (with her). I think I’d like to sit down with quite a few artists and talk to them. I’d like to listen to them; I’d like to hear what they truly think.” The legendary singer also called out other female artists saying, “I see a lot of it as them taking the word hostage and using it to promote themselves, but I don’t think they necessarily represent wholeheartedly the depths of feminism — no, I don’t. I think for many it’s very convenient and it looks great and it looks radical, but I have some issues with it. I think it’s a cheap shot. I think what they do with it is cheap and … yeah. What can I tell you? Sex always sells. And there’s nothing wrong with sex selling, but it depends on your audience. If they’re 7-year-old kids, I have issues with it.”
However, Beyonce did explain her viewpoint on gender equality in an essay called A Woman’s Nation Pushes Back From the Brink; penning the piece for The Shriver Report (Maria Shriver’s nonprofit) this past January– stating “Humanity requires both men and women, and we are equally important and need one another,” she added. “We have to teach our boys the rules of equality and respect, so that as they grow up, gender equality becomes a natural way of life. And we have to teach our girls that they can reach as high as humanly possible.”
Beyonce’s song Flawless includes a sampling from Nigerian author Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, who delivered a powerful speech on the topic of feminism. Adichie ended her speech with her definition of Feminist: “A person who believes in the social, political, economic equality of the sexes.”
It hasn’t even been a month since Amber Rose filed for divorce from Wiz Khalifa, but it seems that she may be rebounding with Nick
Rose was spotted Thursday night with Nick Simmons, the son of Kiss frontman Gene Simmons and star of his family’s reality series “Gene Simmons: Family Jewels.”
While Rose arrived to the Playhouse nightclub in Hollywood with a group of friends, insiders say the couple looked very much like a couple– getting cozy on the dance floor. Rose left arm-in-arm with the 6 foot 8 inches 25-year-old, with the two departing in the same car.
So I guess the Nick Cannon rumors can be put to rest.
Fantasia Barrino’s ex Brandel J Shouse has filed custody for their 13-year-old old daughter Zion. The filing of the suit happened in Muckleberg, North Carolina– but the trial is not set until 2015.
Here’s what Barrino’s rep had to say:
“Fantasia Barrino is currently involved in a Child Custody, Visitation, and Child Support legal proceeding filed in Mecklenburg, North Carolina. The lawsuit was filed by Mr. Brandel J. Shouse, the father of Fantasia’s 13-year-old daughter Zion. Despite living in North Carolina, Mr. Shouse had very little personal contact with Zion and has provided no financial support for her. The case will not be heard until 2015. Fantasia is confident that legal process will move forward smoothly and that the Court will make a decision that is in the best interest of Zion.
Fantasia hopes that her fans understand the sensitive nature of these matters and that she cannot share with them all of the details at this time. Fantasia also knows that all of her ‘Baby Mama’ fans know exactly what she is going though and will support her as she continues to take wonderful and complete care of her daughter.”
I hope they can work this out for the child’s sake.

Jay-Z, Beyonce and Blue Ivy Carter are relaxing in Paris after ending their On The Run Tour. The Carters looked to be considering a more permanent stay in the European city as they were spotted house hunting near Elysee Palace after posting pictures of a recent visit to the Eiffel Tower.
