We have rounded up a few Instagram pics of some of your fave YBF folks. Find out what they were up to over the weekend inside….

 

Fab mom Ciara and chubby cheeks Baby Future were bringing the adorableness over the weekend. The mother-son duo hit the streets in matching outfits, complete with their matching “sleek” mommy-and-me Timbaland boots.  

Then, they hopped into their ride for a little play time:

 

 

 

Looks like Baby Future is a natural!

Over in China...

While his wife is partying it up in Abu Dhabi with French Montana, Kanye West was spotted in good spirits, snapping a pic with a fan at TaiKoo Hui in Guangzhou, China.

TMZ photogs caught up with 'Ye before hopping on his flight to China and asked him what he has planned once he touches down. His response, “I’m going to China to work on the Yeezys”. Sounds like Ye is ready to get to work on his next shoe creation.

Tyrese, Pharell and French Montana weren't the only celebs in Abu Dhabi this weekend. Grammy Award winning singer Estelle Darlings was also in the United Arab Emirates for the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix-Formula One World Championship race.

Estelle, whose gearing up for the release of her brand new album True Romance, went sight-seeing in the city, posing it up in front of the super luxe Palace Hotel.

She also made a visit to the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque, which is considered to be the major place for worship in the country.

Later, after British driver Lewis Hamilton’s win, she partied it up at the Amber Lounge with Lewis' girlfriend and former Pussycat Dolls singer Nicole Scherzinger and friends. Fun times.

“Hollywood Exes” star Nicole Murphy and The Game were front and center on the red carpet at the Associates for Breast and Prostate Cancer Studies 25th Annual Talk of The Town Black Tie Gala in Beverly Hills on Saturday night.

Nicole presented The Game with the Humanitarian of the Year Award for his philanthropic efforts with The Robin Hood Project. We see that hand Game!

The reality star (and ex-fiancé of Michael Strahan) looked hot in a curve-hugging cut-out Walter Mendez gown.

By the end of the night, The Game was surprised with a photo-op with Otis Williams and members of The Temptations. He captioned, "Great night. This one was for all those Saturday's I woke up as a kid with my mother cleaning up the house playing "The Temptations" & singing at the top of her lungs like she was in the group. Here you go ma..... Me, my God father Otis Williams & your favorite group... I love you."

Nice. Congrats Game!

Eve is officially getting in touch with her "country girl" side. The raptress grabbed her rifle, knee boots and ear guards to go hunting in Britain. She said, "I am Officially in England! This is me shooting this weekend in the #countryside #huntingseason". Married life has certainly changed things for the Philly rapper.

Remy woke up like this! Also living the married life, Remy Ma snapped a bedroom selfie before getting up to make her husband Papoose breakfast. Cute.

Over the weekend, "Instant Mom" actress Tia Mowry Hardrict spent some quality "auntie" time with her newphew Aden Housley. He is just too cute.

And (a tired looking) Chris Brown was spotted with fans before hitting the stage at Supperclub in L.A. last night.  Is that a chipped ront tooth?

 photo beyinterviewmag.jpg

Beyonce lands the cover of a special collector’s issue of Interview Germany magazine, while J. Cole returns to his hometown in Complex magazine’s Dec/Jan issue. Also, we have new music from K. Michelle titled “Going Under”. More inside….

All hail the Queen!

After dropping that epic “7/11” video on us out of nowhere, Beyonce returns to the magazine circuit for the cover of Interview Germany’s Dec/Jan special collector’s issue.

Shot by photographer Mason Poole (originally for Bey’s “On The Run” tour book), Mrs. Carter dons a black fishnet mask that she wore during the opening act of her joint tour with husband Jay Z. The interview hits stands Wednesday, Nov. 26th worldwide and it’s available for pre-order here.

On another magazine cover....

Since finding success after becoming the first signee to Jay Z’s RocNation label and making it to the big leagues, J. Cole returns to his hometown of Fayetteville, N.C. where it all began.

J. Cole (real name Jermaine Lamarr Cole) takes us back to his old stumping ground in COMPLEX magazine’s December 2014/January 2015 issue. His success has allowed him to create his own charity organization, Dreamville Foundation, which provides school supplies for needy children and launch his own record label (in partnership with Intercope) called Dreamville Records. But his biggest accomplishment, according to the rapper, is buying his favorite childhood home, a split-level house residing at 2014 Forest Hills Drive, where he says he created his fondest memories.

The address also serves as the title of his upcoming third studio album which, much like his own life, tells a story of young man leaving his home to follow his dreams.

Below are some of the highlights from the cover story:

How has the city changed since you left?
People I grew up with tell me it’s getting worse. I don’t know if that has to do with the economy or if the education is getting worse. On the flipside, Fayetteville has some heroes now—even if they’re rappers or athletes. We never even had that [when I was growing up]. You couldn’t go to Raleigh, Charlotte, or Atlanta and be proud of where you were from. The pride before was about coming from somewhere that had a reputation of being a hard place to make it. Now there’s a pride about accomplishment, whether it’s me, or Eric Maynor, who made it to the NBA, or Eric Curry, who was the No. 3 draft pick in the NFL Draft. It sucks that these things have to come from sports and entertainment, but it’s something for kids to look up to and say, “Somebody from here did something.” I don’t want to inspire kids to rap. I want to let them know that anything they want to do is possible. I come from here and did some shit that was impossible, so if you want to be an astronaut, lawyer, doctor, writer, journalist, or whatever, I want to inspire you to do that.

You rap a lot about love. What is it that attracts you to it?
I guess because I’m interested. I became more conscious of that with this album. That’s what Hollywood represents versus 2014 Forest Hills Drive, which is home. Home is wherever the authentic, unconditional love is. The fake shit, the synthesized love, is Hollywood. I ran from Fayetteville to New York, from New York to everywhere, ultimately looking for what? For love—respect and love from my peers, love from the fans, love from the critics. I’ve learned that none of that shit is real. I appreciate it, it’s extra love, but it can and should only help and add to the real pot of love. It should not substitute. “Artists” that go to Hollywood and live their lives for the cameras, the attention, they’re supplementing for their lack of love, their holes. Those people—and maybe myself included—are ultimately running away from the place where the real love exists, because maybe it’s too painful, maybe it wasn’t the type of love that they needed, or it was void there. There was no father, there was no support. Wanting to be a movie star, wanting to be a rap star, wanting to have jewelry, wanting to have girls, and wanting to have money, all that shit is just trying to plug those holes. It’s dangerous because it’s not real.

Do you feel the label and Jay Z believe in you more now?
They definitely believe in me more now. But first of all, Jay Z believed in me enough to sign me, and for that I am forever grateful. Thank God he heard “Lights Please” and those songs I played for him the first meeting. Thank God he signed me off of those. After that, I can’t front. If we asked him honestly, I’m sure he would say he wasn’t sure what I would turn out to be in the grand scheme of things, in terms of commercial success.

What was it like when he put the Roc chain on you?
That was a top life moment. I don’t soak shit up well, but after that night I definitely took a moment to. It wasn’t about that moment of the chain. It was like, it took so long to even get this dude to come out on stage with me. It took so long to get this guy to come to shows.

You can check out his full interview here.

Check out a clip of J. Cole giving a tour of his old home below:

 

 

On the music scene....

 photo kmichelledown.png

Sampling lyrics from Grandmaster Flash’s “The Message”, K. Michelle returns with a new single title “Going Under”.

The VH1 reality star is gearing up for the release of her sophomore album Anybody Wanna Buy A Heart? (Dec. 9th). This new song is the fourth single from her new LP, following singles “Love Em All”, “How Do You Know” and “Maybe I Should Call”.

On “Going Down” K sings,

“Who's gonna pick me up? Who's gonna give a fuck? Who's gonna go the mile, fly me to the clouds? I'm singing love don't fail me now don't count me out. Oh love don't let me down come back around”

The “Love Em All” singer is gearing up for a joint tour with Keyshia Cole, which is expected to kick off in January. In the meantime, check out her newest track below:

We feelin' it?

FLIP FLOPPIN: Porsha Williams TWERKS On "The Real", DISHES On NOT Mending Fences With Kenya Moore, FIGHTS With Cynthia Bailey

 photo rttrtrtbttbbrtbr.png

Porsha Williams appears on "The Real" today where she'll dish on twerking, THOTs and Kenya Moore.  Also, she had a huge blowup with Cynthia Bailey on RHOA last night.  Watch the clips inside...

 photo porshaeffe.jpg

On today's episode of "The Real", Dish Nation co-host Porsha Williams drops in, revealing where she stands with co-star Kenya Moore and talks about mending relationships and soul searching. Then, the self-proclaimed "Twerk-A-Holic" has a twerk off with Adrienne ("When in doubt, twerk it out") and (according to a Warner Bros. press release) shows us why she's been labeled the "Queen of Thotland."

On Kenya Moore: You know what, I just feel like at that moment I gave a bully power and so I just vowed to never let that happen again. And so now this year if you say some sh** I'm like...I give you nothing!

On RHOA season 7: This season I feel is about mending relationships, or just you know trying to. So it's just a lot of soul searching I think.

 

 

Watch Porsha on "The Real" today......

About last night......

Porsha had an epic fight with Cynthia Bailey where they both flexed their "reading" skills.  Though she's normal calm and subdued, Cynthia came out with her guns blazing, even calling Porsha a flip flopper (repeating a rumor that Porsha got involved with a married man to support her lifestyle).  Naturally, the battle made waves on social media, prompting commentary from Peter (the unofficial housewife):

Wow....looks like Porsha got shade from both Cynthia AND Peter.   This is going to be a messy season....
