World-travelers Magic Johnson & Samuel Jackson made a trip to Italy, to celebrate with their friend, Pat Riley of The Miami Heat. Find out what the festivities were about inside...
Famed business mogul Magic Johnson and box-office superstar Samuel L. Jackson were spotted enjoying a stroll through Portofino, Italy while on vacation yesterday. The two fellas and their fam take the vacay each year together with their families. And they do rich people ish that we love to see, like sailing on a yacht throughout the vacay and more.
Magic and Sam were joined by their wives (Cookie & LaTanya) as they gathered together to celebrate Pat Riley's 20th anniversary as head coach of The Heat. Sports fans will recall that Pat also coach Magic to greatness on the LA Lakers.
The group dined at an intimate restaurant named Puny with Pat's wife Chris and Micky & Madeleine Arison (Miami Heat team owners) are pictured as well.
While the trip to Portofino is a luxe & fabulous vacay that the Jacksons and Johnsons make annually, sometimes they bring the kids....sometimes they don't. The trip usually includes sailing, fine dining and great shopping. And just basking in their riches. Not mad.
Everybody seems to be celebrating Queen Bey's birthday today. This includes Will Smith's oldest son Trey. He's doing so by dropping a brand new track in her honor. Yep, he does music now. Decide if it's any good inside...
22-Year-Old Trey Smith (son of Will Smith and Sheree Fletcher) has been traveling around the world DJ'ing and has gigs coming up in Atlantic City, New York, and Las Vegas in the coming months. Who knew?! He now goes by the stagename of AcE. He's also now trying his hand at music, following his dad, stepmom and siblings' lead.
But first, Trey doesn't want to be pigeonholed as "just" a DJ. Nope, not because we didn't even know he was a DJ up until now. But because he claims he's much more.
According to his press release, he's got some serious artistic goals on deck. The memo states:
Trey “AcE” Smith is not a DJ. He is the one others depend on to get their party started with a tapestry of beats he weaves together like no one else. But don’t be confused. Trey “AcE” Smith is NOT a DJ.
What AcE is in fact, is a master artist-in-training. It doesn’t matter that he comes from a musical lineage; AcE says he will never consider himself proficient at this thing called music “because you have to keep practicing this craft.” And along those same lines, he will never consider himself simply a DJ. The title is just too limiting. Too stifling for what he has in mind. “I want to bring light to each and every person’s soul and I want everyone to have an amazing time.”
AcE's first musical offering is an ode to Beyoncé.
"Blame It On Beyoncé" is the name....and it's his salute to a woman he believes sparked fashion and music trends in society today. he sayis:
"It's a song that's inspired by the impact Beyoncé has made on pop culture. From women to fashion and music, her presence is felt everywhere. The concept of the song came about a year ago at Coachella. The festival was packed with Beyonce inspired fashion, attitude and confidence within women. A song that pays homage to power of Queen B. BLAME IT ON BEYONCÉ. Music is food for the soul and I'm grateful to be able to add to those recipes."
Well, check "Blame It On Beyoncé" ft. DeCarlo for yourselves below:
Tons of celebs headed to Atlanta this week to raise money for the Ludacris Foundation during the 10th annual LudaDay Weekend. Inside, we've got pics from last night's event and the after party. Everybody and their mama (and Dwyane's loud ass blouse) were there. Come inside...
It's that time of the year again.....LUDADAY Weekend! Rapper/actor Ludacris is celebrating the 10th anniversary of his annual event (which we hear may be his last), which raises money for his Ludacris Foundation and other local community charities.
LudaDay Weekend kicked off last night with a bowling event with several guest appearances from YBF celebs. Today, there's a golf tournament and a few after parties. Then there's an all-day block party and concert on Saturday at Clark Atlanta University while there's a celebrity basketball game on Sunday afternoon at Georgia State University's Sport Arena.
Back to last night....
Basketball star Dwyane Wade and his wife, "Being Mary Jane" actress Gabrielle Union were among the celebs who joined Luda and friends at Bowl Mar Lanes. We spotted them posing with Luda's manager Chaka Zulu.
Rapper David Banner showed Dwyane some love, despite his cosmic blouse.
Former "BBWLA" star Laura Govan made the trek to ATL to support Luda and posed it up with Gabby and Sarah Vivan.
Gabby struck a few yoga poses before she tried to knock down those pins.
R&B crooner Usher was spotted bowling with his fiancee Grace Miguel, who stays trying to hide from the cameras. We see you girl....
Usher displayed perfect form while prepping for his bowl....
Luda looked quite intense when it came time to knocking 'em down. It's a competition out here!
