After a decade of a very public battle with a heart condition, Queen Latifah‘s mother – Rita Owens – has passed away.

The multi-talented actress/rapper took to press recently to offer a statement on the matter.  See it inside:


Amber Rose plays no games when it comes to her son Sebastian.

The youngster, whose father is rapper Wiz Khalifa, was elated to learn that his favorite artist Taylor Swift had gifted he and mom VIP tickets to her show – something Rose shared on social media yesterday.

However, trolls responded by slamming the youngster with homophobic jabs for liking the Pop star.

Infuriated, Amber took to Snapchat moments ago with an emotionally charged message.

It may be curtains for Fifth Harmony, but Camila Cabello is pressing on with her quest for solo stardom.

Today on Ellen, the 21-year-old took center-stage to perform current single ‘Never Be The Same’ – the official follow-up to mega-smash ‘Havana.’

The track, which also serves as the title of the singer’s upcoming tour, has thus far peaked at #16 on the Billboard Hot 100. And with its video now hatched, it looks as though Cabello is seizing the moment to pound the promo pavement to help it become a bonafide hit.

Watch her showing after the jump…

Iggy Azalea has officially hit the promo trail in support of her comeback single, ‘Savior.’  

Just days after dropping by BRAVO’s ‘Watch What Happens’ to dish on her latest happenings (click here to see if you missed that), the rap diva was spotted on CBS delivering the first televised performance of her Quavo-assisted cut.

The first single from her revamped, long-awaited sophomore album ‘Surviving the Summer,’ Azalea brought the heat to the ‘Late Late Show with James Corden’ last night (March 20) like only she can.

Just a week after learning her Swae Lee-assisted track, ‘Sativa,’ was certified Gold,  Jhene Aiko‘s lifted not one, but two videos for ‘Never Call Me,’ the newest drop from her sophomore studio album, ‘Trip.’

Enlisting help from rapper Kurupt, in one visual Aiko returns to her “old stomping grounds” of Los Angeles.  Recently taking to our buds at Billboard, the singer recalls:

“I love where I’m from. I put on for my city as often as possible. I visit my neighborhood as often as possible. I talk about my neighborhood a few times in the song, so I wanted to show people where I’m from and introduce my fans to the people I love… my family and the people I grew up with.”

The star-studded clip – which features appearances from the likes of Nipsey Hu$$le, Lauren London, Hit-Boy, and more – is only one take on the song dedicated to an ex . The other visual sees Aiko portray Izanami no mikoto, Shinto goddess of creation and death, and performing a “funeral to the ego” of her former lover.

Ahead of the long-awaited release of ‘Fantasea II: The Second Wave’ (originally reported to be due March 2018, now indicated to be due June 2018), rapstress Azealia Banks looks to remind she hasn’t been resting on her laurels.

In a surprise move, instead of whetting appetites for the forthcoming project Banks is serving up a taste of ‘Soda’ by offering an accompanying visual to the cut from her 2014 debut album, ‘Broke With Expensive Taste.’
