There's a good chance Kanye West might be chosen to host the 2016 MTV VMAs. Find out what MTV execs are saying about 'Ye inside...
Sunday evening, Kanye West treated fans and MTV VMA viewers to a nearly 13-minute long stream of consciousness rant during his Video Vanguard Award acceptance, and (mostly) everyone loved it! And when we say everyone, that includes MTV executives. In fact, MTV is considering Kanye as host in 2016 (if he's not too busy plotting his 2020 presidential bid).
VMA sources reportedly told TMZ that execs were so impressed by 'Ye's speech that they completely overlooked all the jabs he threw at them. Hey, ratings are king. Ratings by any means necessary.
Here's an interesting backstage tidbit.....Kanye was only allotted 2-minutes for his speech, but producers let him continue on and on and on...and on. The control room could have easily cut him off.......but they showed him respect. Or just wanted to capitalize off the foolery of what was happening.
We're even hearing that one MTV exec followed Kanye to his dressing room to gush about the speech. We're sure 'Ye loved all the attention, despite his "unimpressed" act.
Rihanna was spotted heading out to Brooklyn promote her new fragrance in head-to-toe pink today. Peep candids of the Pop diva serving 80s chic, get the deets on her look and check out Angela Simmons' back-to-school announcement inside….
Rihanna has been gassing up her fans on social media about her Brooklyn appearance for days now. RiRi fans have literally been lined up outside of a department store since Friday in hopes of seeing the international superstar. And today, their prayers were answered.
The Pop princess was spotted making her way to Macy’s in downtown Brooklyn for a meet-and-greet she scheduled for hundreds of her RIHNavy fans today to promote her new perfume RiRi by Rihanna.
The Dior spokeswoman was pretty in pink rocking a custom Vivienne Westwood red label dress from the fall/winter ’15 collection serving up 80s chic. The dress was accented with lace, pink tulle and puffy off-the-shoulder sleeves for a funky, fun look. She finished her doll-baby esque look with a pair of pink ‘So Kate’ Christian Louboutin pumps and her Diorama clutch she has been seen wearing a lot lately.
Once inside, RiRi showed off her brand new fragrance.
Now…in order for fans to win a chance to meet Rihanna, they had to purchase her new perfume set (which set them back about $116) before the event. The first 400 fans at the store with a receipt were allowed access.
Fans were treated to a VIP pass to meet the “BBHMM” singer, snap a pic with the Bajan beauty and, of course, sniff her new fragrance. Nice!

Making a promise to myself to get it done. Step by step! Being busy isn't an excuse! I want my degree and I will complete it! #VowToSelf #SchoolStartsThisWeek #BackToSchool"
Singer Tiffany Evans is a mom again. See her latest photo inside and see pics of Lauryn Hill performing in Nigeria with her daughter Sarah.
Singer Tiffany Evans gave birth to a healthy baby a little over a month ago. We learned about her new addition via a posting on Instagram. In addition to the pic above, Tiffany wrote,
"I'm at work shooting for my project, but I had to take a break and post a revelation I had of myself today. One thing I know is that I am a soldier! I work hard to do what I love. But most of all, my most important role is being a Mother. I'm the example of how you can be a hard working ass woman and be a Mother, Wife at the same time! You can do it ladies! Don't let anyone tell you that you can't do it! I prove people wrong everyday. God is on my side and what He wants for me will come to me! I'm still knocking down doors and I don't have to do anything outside of my character to succeed. I'm so happy and grateful for this time in my life. At first I wasn't going to say anything, but then again I said this is my life and my truth. I'm living it! With that being said, I'm blessed tremendously! Happy 1Month baby. #StillFineAsWINE "
This isn't the first time we've heard big news from Tiffany via Instagram.....
A few years ago we learned about her first pregnancy via an Instagram post. Now little dalia Sarai Henderson (above) is two years old! And before that......Tiffany revealed her "secret" marriage via Instagram too. Whew.....we guess she's trying to save money on hiring a publicist.
In Lagos, Nigeria...
Following a few hiccups, singer Lauryn Hill finally made it Lagos, Nigeria for a concert. The singer performed at the Eko Hotel and Suites on Sunday night and her 8-year-old daughter Sarah joined her onstage.
Witnesses say Sarah had her own space on the stage where she supported Lauryn during most of the show. At some point, Ms. Hill gave her daughter the spotlight and she performed on her own.
