Avid readers of TGJ will remember our spotlighting of the Cyntoia Brown story via this  ‘Retro Rewind’ feature.

Today, much to the delight of Cyntoia‘s supporters, the influential stars Kim Kardashian, Ebro Darden and Rihanna have used their platforms to raise awareness for her harrowing story.

A positive twist in Ms. Brown’s story below….



Current battles with former beau David Otunga haven’t robbed Grammy & Academy Award winning diva Jennifer Hudson of her holiday spirit it seems [click here to read more on that].  The songstress, who’s been winning over new fans with her stint as judge on NBC’s hit reality singing competition, ‘The Voice,’ used her awe-inspiring voice to accompany fellow Grammy winners/vocal group Pentatonix for their holiday special titled, ‘A Very Pentatonix Christmas.’

Before you tune in to catch the show in full when it airs Monday, Nov. 27 at 10 p.m., look inside for a jaw dropping preview of their performance with Hudson as they took to the stage to sing the gospel classic, ‘How Great Thou Art.’


A highly touted tribute to Whitney Houston, P!nk/Kelly Clarkson duet, and Diana Ross lifetime achievement honors were undoubtedly among the draws that lured viewers into this year’s American Music Awards.

Hosted by ‘Black-ish’ star Tracee Ellis Ross, the showing – which also featured stage-blazing performances from chart-toppers Shawn Mendes, Lady Gaga, Demi Lovato, Selena Gomez, and more – saw a notable improvement in ratings compared to last year’s abysmal 8.18 million (the lowest in its nearly 45 year history).

Curious to see just how many tuned in to see their faves slay the AMA stage?  Look inside:


In news that should come as no surprise, Eminem & Beyonce‘s surprise collaboration – ‘Walk On Water’ – is making quite the splash on the Hot 100.

Debuting at #14 on this week’s Hot 100, the song’s top 20 arrival came on the wings of handsome streaming and download figures (18.3 million U.S. streams and 64,000 first-week downloads respectively).  That number may very well increase next week thanks to some solid promo on both sides of the pond from ‘Water’s leading act.

The premiere on the Hot 100 not only made it the highest debut of the week (ahead of its highly anticipated music video), but also gave both Em and the Queen Bey a very unique placement alongside another music royal:  Queen of Pop Madonna.  Get the detail below:


Congratulations are in order for John Legend and Chrissy Teigen!

The couple have announced that they expecting their second child.

Reunited and it looks so good!

Such was the case the case for Janet Jackson and ‘What’s It Gonna Be’ collaborator Busta Rhymes. 

The rapper is the latest celebrity to attend the diva’s ‘State Of The World Tour’, which pulled into Newark recently.

His appearance comes after the likes of Naomi Campbell, Gabrielle Union, Stevie Wonder, and Maxwell stopped by the much praised show.

In other Janet news, her father claims she is indeed likely be taking to the stage at the Super Bowl next year with Justin Timberlake.

Time will tell if that comes to fruition. But in there here and now let’s re-live this epic moment below…


Tamar Braxton‘s mother is baring all and holding nothing back on the abuse she says the singer suffered at the hands of her husband and manager Vincent Herbert.

Fans of the couple were shocked to learn of their plans to separate when they were announced weeks and will now find themselves stunned, startled and deeply surprised  by what Braxton matriarch Evelyn Braxton said in a new interview with ‘Sister Circle.’

A shocking story below…


Phaedra Parks of ‘The Real Housewives of Atlanta’ has often touted her abilities as a lawyer.

‘America’s Next Top Model’ is back and is bringing with it a familiar face – Tyra Banks. 

The show’s creator, host, and head-judge sat out its inaugural season on VH1 last year – instead passing the torch onto Rita Ora. 

However, as part of a more measured return to the TV sphere, she’s reclaiming her ANTM throne for its 24th cycle. She will be joined by last season’s returning judges Ashley Graham, Paper creative director Drew Elliot, and celebrity stylist Law Roach. 

And ahead of its premiere in early 2018, a fierce new teaser clip has been released starring Banks.

“Did you miss me?” she ask, as she serves her trademark smize. Check it out below…



Another day, another Rihanna cover spread.

The model-musician continues her trend of featuring a-front of multiple issues of magazines – and this time it’s for DAZED.

Much like yesterday’s three Vogue Paris covers, this spread is in support of RiRi’s mega-selling Fenty Beauty cosmetics line.

Say what folk will about the 29-year-old, but she is leaving no stone unturned in her quest for global success with the venture.

She’s harnessing all of her connects and is keeping the content a’coming. Kudos!

Peep the other covers after the jump…



Pink is powering on with the promotion for new album ‘Beautiful Trauma’ with the video for its title track.

Channing Tatum joins the Pop force in the quirky clip and it’s by no means a fleeting cameo.

For, the actor dusts off his dancing shoes in the retro themed visual and even plays a gender role swap.

After a rocky few months, congratulations are in order for Kevin Hart and wife Eniko.
