Fresh off the announcement that she'll be assuming the role of Creative Director at Puma, a fan posted a cute VINE video of Rihanna greeting a group of her fans in Paris.  She runs toward a large crowd of fans (whom are ALSO running towards her) and they give one another in a warm embrace.  

In new apps.........

One of our fave new drama series is gearing up to return to STARZ for the brand new second season. And we have a few spoiler pics of lead star Omar Hardwick as he portrays the NYC drug kingpin and nightclub owner “Ghost” in 50 Cent's original scripted series, "Power".

The sexy star was spotted on the beach in Miami as he filmed scenes for the upcoming season alongside his co-star Lela Loren, who plays Ghost's mistress Angela Valdez.

You'll recall in the finale episode, Ghost decided to open another Truth nightclub. As he tries to escape from all of the madness that’s going on in NYC (and his wife Tasha), he makes a drastic decision to move to Miami. And he brings his mistress along (who up and leaves NYC to be with her love) to help with the nightclub launch.

Looks like Ghost and Angela are still "on" as the new season starts. No word on the official premiere date of the 2nd season, but we can expect to see how Ghost juggles his life in New York and his new life in Miami coming in 2015. Who's excited?

INTERVIEWS: Azealia Banks BURSTS Into Tears DISHING On Cultural Smudging, Calls T.I. A "Coon", EXPLAINS Why She HATES Iggy Azalea

Azealia Banks appeared on Hot 97 this morning for her most intense interview ever. In between tears, curse words, rants and music from her latest disc, she takes on TI, Iggy Azealea, the music industry and cultural appropriation is a way most artists wouldn't dare.  More inside...

A month ago, Azealia Banks dropped one of the most brilliant albums of 2014, Broke With Expensive Taste.  Sadly, her artistry has been great overshadowed by her social media presence, where she's been cast as a bitter angry Black woman.  This morning on Hot 97, she appeared with Ebro, Peter and Laura, to reveal her truth and show who she really is.  Turns out, she is an angry Black woman - with good reason. 

During the 45min interview, Azealia takes on everything from industry politics, cultural appropriation and racism to her REAL issues with TI and Iggy Azalea.  You'll find that she's a young Black woman who's passionate about hip hip and holding onto her cultural identity.  Here are the highlights: 

On TI (15:00)
You out here trying to promote this white bitch. They got your wife on VH1 and that bitch can’t fu**in’ read. You’re a fu**in’ shoe shinin’ coon. How dare you.”

On Iggy (8:44)
“That Macklemore album wasn’t better than Drake’s record. That Iggy Azalea shit is not better than any black girl that’s rappin’ today. The Grammys are supposed to be accolades of artist excellence. Iggy Azzlea is not excellent. I have a problem when you’re trying to say that it’s hip-hop and you’re trying to put it up against black culture.”

On Iggy biting off Nicki
“Nicki Minaj over the past two, three, four years has done so much to create this social presence, like consciousness, and then here you go. She’s like Re-Up and Roman Reloaded, and here go fu**in’ Iggy like Reclassified. It’s like a cultural smudging was what I see.”

On cultural smudging
"All it says to white kids is like ‘oh yeah, you’re great, you’re amazing, you can do whatever you put your mind to. And it says to black kids, you don’t have shit, you don’t own shit, not even the shit you created for yourself. And, it makes me upset.”

On being outspoken
“Everyone’s got it all wrong. I definitely have some really strong opinions and some really strong things to say about things, but I’m never trying to force my opinion.”

On feeling shunned by the industry
“At the very fu**in’ least, ya’ll owe me the right to my fu**in’ identity. And to not exploit that shit. That’s all we’re holding onto, like hip-hop and rap. And Bill Cosby, and whatever the f**k it is. Ya’ll putting that on TV for the youth to fu**in’ see.”
