Inviting fans to Vallejo, California (where she was raised), H.E.R. helps bring the Cardo-produced cut to life via a Mike Ho-directed clip that interpolates visuals from her electric live showings and some pre-taped elements that highlighted well known fixtures from Bay Area (i.e. Grand Lake Theater, West Oakland Station, etc.).

Kerry Washington had critics and fans brimming with buzz over her role as “Kendra” in the US Broadway play, ‘American Son.’ Now, with backing from Netflix, the award-winning actress has created a film adaptation of the production.

Washington – who also serves as a producer – is joined by co-stars Steven Pasquale, Jeremy Jordan and Eugene Lee, all of whom reprise their respective roles from the play.
To whet appetites, Netflix has unveiled an extended trailer ahead of the movie’s November 1 debut. See it inside.

Barely a week after sending fans into a frenzy at news she would be releasing a new EP not even 4 months after her sophomore album, ‘In My Defense,’ hit shelves (click here to read more about that), Iggy Azalea‘s lifted the lid on its release date and so much more.
‘Basketball Wives‘ royal Evelyn Lozada made headlines earlier this month when she claimed that her feud with co-star OG Chijindu was to blame for the erosion of an endorsement deal she was close to signing.
The deal fell through after the brand learned that Lozada posted an image of a monkey following a Instagram message directed at Ms. Chijindu who is an African woman.
Since then, her message (and the allegedly racist and featurist language she used to berate Chijindu and co-star Cece Gutierrez on camera) has seen thousands take to Twitter to declare that they will pull their support for any company which aligns itself with her.
The latest company who will soon be forced to choose between its profits and relationship with the TV star?
