Taraji P. Henson Praises Lil Kim’s Influence On Her ‘Empire’ Character, Nicki Minaj, & More

Screen shot 2015-02-05 at 3.36.34 PM

As new hit FOX series ‘Empire’ continues to reign over TV competition, viewers are finding more and more reasons to fall in love with the show’s first lady Taraji P. Henson.

Portraying the ever-sassy/sharp-tongued mother figure “Cookie,” the D.C.-born beauty’s tongue-in-cheek humor is finding favor from critics and fans alike as it thematically strays from many of Henson’s previous roles.  When quizzed on the inspiration for the character in a recent ‘Vogue’ interview, readers were stunned to learn that the star looks no further than the Queen B – Lil’ Kim.

Read her interesting quotes below as she reflects on Kim’s influence on hip hop culture, especially as it relates to the genre’s new leading lady Nicki Minaj:

Nicki Minaj Continues To Tease Meek Mill Relationship With New Pic

nicki-minaj-meek-mill-thatgrapjuice

Are they? Aren’t they?

Nicki Minaj continues to keep the masses guessing and stressing over her private life.

For months, rumors have been mounting about her supposed relationship with rapper Meek Mill. And while not explicitly confirming, Minaj – who split from boyfriend of 12 years Safaree Samuels last Summer – has been feeding the frenzy with a number of telling snaps; the latest of which was shared moments ago.

Wrapped in Meek’s embrace, the ‘Anaconda’ femcee was all smiles as she posed it up.

To be frank, we’re neither here nor there about it. We’re more so keen to see what next Nicki has in store for the promo of her new album ‘The Pinkprint’.

Chart Check: Nicki Minaj Close To Trumping Taylor Swift Hot 100 Record As Country Star Loosens Grip On Billboard 200’s Top Spot

This week’s Hot 100 and Billboard 200 saw little movement in their respective top 10s, but elsewhere on the charts, the shakeups are making history.

As her album ‘The PinkPrint’ continues to leave its mark on album charts’ upper ranking, Nicki Minaj is seeing her latest release – ‘Truffle Butter’ ft. Drake & Lil Wayne – edge her closer to surpassing chart titan Taylor Swift‘s status for entries on the Hot 100.

Becoming the rapstress’s 60th mention on the tally, only Swift (66) and Aretha Franklin (73) block her ability to claim the title of “most entries on the Hot 100 by a female.”  Her Young Money co-stars, Drake & Wayne, also have reason to rejoice as ‘Truffle’s trek up charts lands them in Hot 100 history books as well.

“Lil Wayne logs his 124th entry, second only to the cast of Fox’s Glee‘s record 207. Drake makes his 74th visit, tying late icon Ray Charles for sixth place…” (source)

The good tidings bring the trio a much needed distraction from their growing label drama, but tuck in below to see who else is celebrating for chart moves on the Hot 100 and Billboard 200 this week:

The countdown is officially on to Katy Perry‘s “must-see” Super Bowl halftime show.

Coming to a screen near you Sunday night live from the University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, AZ, all eyes will be on the diva and her kooky antics to see if they live up to Superbowl showings past (i.e. Beyonce, Michael Jackson, Madonna, Janet Jackson).

Sending anticipation into overdrive with the announcement that rocker Lenny Kravitz will be among guests joining her on the mega-outing, Perry teased her newly revealed guest in a recent interview:

“Q: Are you planning on inviting any guest performers?

A: Yes, of course. There were a couple of names I tossed around and this one really stuck. I thought OK, it’s time for this person to have their shine again.

Q: Is it someone who’s on one of your records?

A: Hmmm. That’s funny should ask. Let’s just say I’ve been familiar with them before in a roundabout way.”

Just as her Billboard magazine feature makes its way to shelves, the Associated Press has revealed who surprise guest #2 will be.  Tuck in below for the spoiler:
