Black girls rock! 16-year-old starlet Amandla Stenberg and her friends got together in NYC to pose it up on a photoshoot set for Dazed magazine. And it’s magical. More insdie….
Hunger Games star Amandla Stenberg is all about black girl power! (Remember when she called Kylie Jenner out for appropriating black culture?) And recently, the 16-year-old starlet and her friends, Lani, Syena,Samiah and more were on location in NYC to shoot flicks for an upcoming photoshoot, which we hear is for Dazed magazine.
Amandla and co. created some of their own props for the '90s themed shoot, holding up a graffiti laced sign that read, “Black Kids ‘R Magic.”
The “Mr. Robinson” actress was fully involved in the makings of the photoshoot concept, adding her own artistic flare to the artwork being featured:
The shoot was all about fun with her homies as they posed it up on the set and behind-the-scenes:
After her spat with Kylie on social media, Amandla took to Twitter to clap back at those who were calling her “angry” for schooling Kylie on cultural appropriation. In a Twitter status, she wrote,
“End the "angry black girl" narrative. It's just another attempt to undermine certain perspectives. I have strong opinions. I am not angry.”
The Brown and Houston families along with close friends said their final goodbye to 22-year-old Bobbi Kristina Brown yesterday. But, drama erupted during the service after Bobby’s sister Leolah Brown was escorted out of the service for blasting Pat Houston. More inside….
The funeral service of 22-year-old Bobbi Kristina Brown, the only child of the late Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown, was held at St. James United Methodist Church in Alpharetta, Ga yesterday. Family and friends filled the church for the invite-only service to mourn the death of Bobbi Kristina, a life gone too son. Bobbi Kristina died on July 26th in hospice care, 6-months after she was found unresponsive in a bath tub inside of her home.
BK’s father Bobby Brown looked totally distraught as he exited the funeral service with his wife Alicia Etheredge and other family members as Krissy’s casket was removed from the funeral service.
Bobbi Kristina’s grandmother Cissy Houston, her uncle Gary Houston, his wife and BK’s co-legal guardian Pat Houston were also spotted somberly leaving the funeral service as they mourned the death of their beloved Krissy.
Several celebrities, including Grammy Award winning singer Monica, filmmaker and close family friend Tyler Perry and actor Michael Jai White all came out to pay their final respects during the services. Peep pics of Tyler and Michael here.
It's being reported Bobbi Kristina's boyfriend Nick Gordon begged Bobby Brown and Pat Houston to attend the funeral via email, but ultimately was turned down.
What should have been a peaceful ceremony, drama erupted during the service, causing one family to be escorted out.
Bobby’s sister Leolah Brown caused a scene during the service as Pat Houston stood before mourners to speak a few words. According to sources, Leolah began yelling “Whitney is rolling over in her grave! Pat you know you are wrong for this!"
We hear (but can’t confirm) Tyler Perry asked Leolah to leave the service before she was escorted out by security. Once outside, Leolah swiftly walked towards the media to speak out about Pat. She said,
“Whitney will haunt Pat Houston from the grave. She will haunt her. That is not over. It has just begun. I have information, I have knowledge of who Pat really is. She has no relation to Krissy. She’s not even a Houston. This is going to be a long drawn out thing. It’s not over. I’ll be doing interviews and I’ll be speaking out and telling the truth about Pat.”
While we’re not exactly sure what set Leolah off, we believe it may have something to do with the “family” asking people to not send flowers, but rather donations for the Marion P Foundation, a charity founded by Pat Houston for troubled teens.
We believe this because in a Facebook rant last month, Leolah slammed Pat for gunning for BK’s estate. In short, she vented,
"Instead of trying to get control over my niece's money that her mother Whitney (who could not STAND the sight of you) left her (Bobbi Kriss), why don't you seek a profession on your own Pat? Money that has nothing at all to do with you Pat Watson! And there is NO blood at all in Pat Watson Garland that is running through my niece's vains, for starters! Who are you Pat? Let's get to the real you. I know who you are and I have no problem with revealing that."
“Pat has NO RIGHT WHATSOEVER to be anywhere near my niece's Estate! Whitney would NEVER CONDONE OR AGREE to that!”
Yikes! We realize this is a sensitive matter as everyone has been mourning and it pains us that this has happened under these circumstances. Our hope is that the Brown and Houston family can one day find peace and continue to uphold Whitney and Bobbi Kristina's legacies.
And if that wasn’t enough….
Shortly after the funeral service, Bobby’s wife Alicia, who gave birth to a baby girl last month, suffered a seizure and was rushed to an Atlanta hospital. According to TMZ, Alicia had the seizure in the hotel they were staying. The ambulance was called and they whisked her to treatment. Once she got to the hospital, it’s reported she was able to walk inside with little help. And, of course, Bobby was with her the entire time. Story still developing…..
Our prayers are with both the Brown and Houston families during this troubling time. R.I.P. Bobbi Kristina.
What’s this? Sanaa Lathan and French Montana spotted out together…again? Yep, the twosome is fueling dating rumors after being spotted at dinner together. Check out the video and peep flicks of Safaree Samuels and his new chick Zashia Santiago stunting for the ‘gram inside….
Yep! That’s Sanaa Lathan and French Montana enjoying a super fancy dinner together recently. Are these two an item? We’re not sure. But, we do know the two seem to enjoy spending time with one another these days.
Remember that eyebrow raising video of Sanaa stretched out on Frenchie a few weeks ago? We’ll blame it on the alcohol, but the Hollywood vet and the NYC rapper do seem like they're warming up to each other.
Last week, the upcoming Perfect Guy star poked fun at the relationship rumors, following that video surfacing (thanks to Diddy). She posted up a photoshooped pic of The Perfect Guy poster with French on the left and Diddy on the right, taking the place of her real co-stars Michael Ealy and Morris Chestnut:
Ha! Maybe chick is just having fun. We'll keep an eye out.
The Perfect Guy hits theaters September 11th.
Speaking of the Coke Boy...
Looks like French is cooking up something big with R&B songstress Mariah Carey and Pop superstar Justin Bieber.
MiMi, French, JB and producer Eric Hudson were spotted at the Record Plant in Hollywood on Thursday. And it appears they trio may be releasing a joint track soon. Both MC and French posted flicks on IG with the caption “coming soon.”
Hmm...no word on where this alleged track will end up, but we're interested in hearing how it turns out.
Elsewhere on the 'gram....
After throwing shade at Meek Mill for his mediocre diss track “Wanna Know,” Nicki Minaj’s ex-fiancée Safaree Samuels is serving up a few hot coupledom shots of himself and his new girlfriend Zashia Santiago.
The new couple was all wrapped up in love as they posed it up for a few sexy flicks. And we can’t lie, they’re kinda hot! We're wondering if it's for a Calvin Klein ad in GQ magazine. Safaree mentions GQ in one of his captions.
In another caption, he writes, "Back to front.... We have 1 back to back ill save for a later time.. @jayflex #hardestpicoftheyear #stuntgang #calvinkleinneedsme #loveyou #rare #shewatchesmyback nothing like the feeling of tackling the world together... the other one"
Not mad. Do you boo.
