Over the weekend, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum in Cleveland opened a fashion exhibit centered on Beyonce, making her the first non Hall of Famer with an exhibit. Rock Hall curator Meredith Rutledge-Borger said, “We felt that (Beyonce) really needed to take her rightful place alongside Aretha Franklin and the Supremes and Janis Joplin. Rock and roll has an intergenerational appeal and we want to make sure we’re hitting all the right notes and keeping up with what’s happening today and what’s legendary today.”

Items in the exhibit include her black leotard from the “Single Ladies” music video, as well as her body suit, skirt and jacket from her Super Bowl performance.

CELEBS GIVE BACK: Romany Malco Visits THREE At-Risk Youth Centers In Detroit + Swizz Beatz Picks Up EVERYONE'S Tab In Harlem

TLAM2 actor Romany Malco visited three Detroit-based organizations for at-risk youth over the weekend.  Get deets about his trip inside and find out what Swizz Beatz did for a few lucky folks at a Harlem neighborhood fish spot.

Recently, "Last Vegas" actor Romany Malco reached out to his fans on social media and asked them to suggest places he could visit in Detroit to speak to at-risk youth.  Well....Detroit answered his call.  According to the Detroit Free Press, Romany's post got 4,500 likes, 1,000 comments and nearly 1,700 shares. Based on residents' suggestions, he visited Covenant House Michigan, Boys Hope Girls Hope and Wolverine Human Services.

During a interview with the Free Press, Romany opened up about spending several hours at the three sites and speaking to the youth he encountered.

“It was a blessing,” Malco said to the Free Press after visiting Covenant House. “I did not expect it to become as big of a deal as it is, but I think Detroit is a hotspot right now. I think there’s an awareness here that goes beyond Detroit. What I realized by doing this is, I can raise money for these people. I can raise money for each one of these organizations. What’s next is creating the infrastructure, applying the links to the right places and heightening awareness.”

Romany (shown above with teens from Covenant House) thanked all of his fans and followers on Facebook for their suggestions and for helping him get out his message.

"DETROIT was a huge success. You and I DID THIS! Thanks to everyone who helped point me in the right direction. Though I was not able to take all of your suggestions, I will most definitely be back. I love these kids. I met with the following three organizations (see below). The kids seemed grateful, open and receptive to my message. I was especially touched and look forward to doing more."

 

Good stuff.  We love to see celebs making a effort to uplift the community!

 

And here's another good deed....

Good deeds for the neighborhood go a long way.

Late Saturday night, patrons of El Puerto Seafood and Fish Market (a 24hr spot 125th street in Harlem) were treated to dinner by Showtime himself! 

Swizz Beatz and his dapper crew (all the fellas in suits) walked in and Swizz picked up the tab for EVERYBODY. He posted a pic of the thrilled patrons saying "125th vibes fish spot I love my people everything on me #blessings Harlem 125th vibes fish spot I love my people ,everything on me #blessings Harlem"

We wonder if anyone upgraded their 3 piece w/fries to salmon and crab once they realized they were being "blessed."
