With little warning Beyonce took to social media Sunday (September 15) to deliver a gift to her beloved fan base (better known as the #Beyhive).  Packaged in the form of a behind the scenes ABC special (as we reported here), the diva offered viewers an inside look at the creation of her ‘Lion King’-inspired album, ‘The Gift.’  Zooming to #1 on Billboard Soundtrack and R&B Album charts respectively, the set – kicked off by the anthemic ‘Spirit’ – was lauded by critics for its inclusion of the who’s who of the Afrobeats scene, feminist concepts, and socially conscious lyrics decorated with unapologetic themes of pro-Blackness.

In an effort to show fans how all that magic came to be, the Grammy-winner unveiled ‘Beyonce Presents: Making the Gift.’  Airing Monday (September 16), the special may have given viewers little time to prepare but still managed to hold its own against the night’s many forms of ‘must see TV’ including sports, news, and scripted programming.

Look inside to see just how many people tuned in.

2019 just hasn’t been Kevin Hart‘s year.

As if being ousted as the Academy Awards host for resurfaced homophobic tweets wasn’t enough, the funnyman was later unceremoniously slammed for being insensitive to the LGBTQ community thanks to his commentary surrounding rapper Lil Nas X‘s coming out (click here to read).  The latter backlash ensued while the 40-year-old was recuperating from injuries he sustained from a heavily reported car accident.

Now, with his back, ego, and reputation concurrently in recovery, a woman who the comedian reportedly had an affair with is looking to bruise his pocketbook. Details inside:

After the successful third season of her hit NBC dance competition, ‘World of Dance,’ the multi-talented diva succeeded the television effort by jet-setting across America for her ‘It’s My Party’ tour (which ended on a $54 million high note).  Quickly following the Stateside jaunt with putting the finishing touches on her latest film, ‘Hustlers’ (also starring Constance Wu, Julia Stiles, Keke PalmerCardi B, and more), Lopez spent the last month pounding the promo pavement in support of the flick’s September 13th arrival.

Now, with box office receipts counted the 5o-year-old superstar can rejoice at news her stripper-inspired film has danced circles around the competition and put her in first place among the weekend’s newcomers.

Naomi Campbell undoubtably stands as one of the most legendary supermodels of all-time and, for many, even defines the term.

And while others would have rested on the comfort of her well-earned status, the style icon is using her platform for a potent cause.

Case in point last night’s ‘Fashion For Relief’ presentation, which returned to London in triumphant form. Previous instalments have taken place in New York, Cannes, Moscow, and Mumbai.

Established by Campbell in 2005 to raise money for disaster relief worldwide, the 2019 show was held at the British Museum and saw the supermodel deliver her famed “Naomi Campbell Walk.’

After the presentation (which was attended by the likes of Anna Wintour, Tiwa Savage, Damson Idris, Skepta, Eve, and Edward Enniful), a gala dinner was held and auction where prized art and designer items were sold to raise money for the Mayor’s Fund for London. Funds raised are set to go towards employability programs which offer support for young Londoners from low-income backgrounds.

Head below for pics, as well as word from Campbell on the incredible movement:

80’s and 90’s babies rejoice!

Although the current Hollywood wave of rebooting the best movies and television shows from our childhoods has been launched to varying critical and commercial results, it’s certainly a trend we shouldn’t expect to slow any time soon.

Two series who recently joined the brigade are FOX’s teen drama, ‘Party of Five,’ and  Nickelodeon’s ‘Are You Afraid of the Dark?’  Both announced over the last year, the former – set for relaunch on Freeform – lifted a sneak peek at its premiere episode shortly before the latter’s trailer was unveiled (which is set to remain on its home network).  And, while fans of the shows’ first respective runs shouldn’t expect to see faces from the originals, creators promise its content will be no less engaging.

We’ll let you be the judges of that.  Look inside to see the first trailers:
