National Boyfriend Day

Celebrity News, Social Media Sensations

As most of you know from the tons of pictures of couples on your social media timelines, yesterday was #nationalboyfriendday. (Who makes this stuff up?) So we decided to put together a short list of some of our favorite couples to celebrate.

1) Gucci Mane & Keyshia Kaoir

Even though no one believed this was the real Gucci Mane after his initial prison release, the hip hop community quickly adapted to his new look and weight loss and even warmed up to the idea that he was really in love with his Jamaican girlfriend Keyshia Kaoir. The couple has become a hip hop favorite and a constant under the hashtag “relationship goals.” Keyshia does everything with Gucci, even going on stage with him (as a handler in my mind because I still think that this fool is a clone…but-eh!) and they have a wedding special coming soon through BET. (although I believe that they’re married already.)

(watch the video of their proposal below)

 

2) Scrappy & “The Bam”

I’ve had love for Bambi ever since I saw her on Basketball Wives LA as Malaysia‘s homegirl from Compton. She was raw, honest, and gorgeous. When she left BBWLA and appeared on Love and Hip Hop: Atlanta I was ready to see what she was up to. Bambi’s on again and off again relationship with fellow LHH Atlanta cast mate, Scrappy,  has been the latest tea on countless blogs, but something about these two just feels right to me. Scrappy is a wannabe player but Bambi is his best friend as well as his girl and that’s a connection that’s hard to find. These two are the “underdog” couple in my mind. Rumor has it that they secretly married recently. (Yay!)

(Watch below as Scrappy searches for Bambi to win her back as his girlfriend)

 

3) The Shumperts

Actress/Singer Teyana Taylor and her NBA baller husband Iman Shumpert are a perfect match. These two support each other, match each other’s fly, and are goofy as hell together. They wear matching pajamas, capes, and dote on their baby girl Junie with relentlessly. Yes, we’ve heard about a few cases of infidelity with Iman, but the couple has pulled through it stronger than ever and recently celebrated their one year wedding anniversary. ( I know it’s national boyfriend day, but hubby starts off as a boyfriend!)

(watch the video below of these two hyping each other up while imitating a classic “bad boy” video)

 

Who are your favorite celebrity couples?

New Couple Alert? Is Future Dating Tommie Lee?

Celebrity News, Hip Hop/R&B, Social Media Sensations

After getting tips from one of our lovely readers I dug into the comings and goings of reality star Tommie and rapper Future.

They were pictured together during the BET awards on June 26 and on June 28, Tommie was in Cleveland for Future’s “Nobody’s Safe” tour. Coincidence? Or the start of something new?

Tommie may be crazy as hell but she is absolutely beautiful so I don’t blame Future. He’s been known to be a bit of a thot though so I hope Tommie can keep him in line!

Earlier today, the Love and Hip Hop: Atlanta star posted a video to her Instagram account where she was advising young girls to use their minds instead of their bodies; at the end of her caption she wittingly placed a line from Future’s hit single, “Mask Off.” (clever girl!)

What y’all think? Are they smashing or am I gassing it? Leave your comments and let me know!!!

Tamar Speaks About Falling Out w/Toya on Big Tigger’s Radio Show

Celebrity News, Social Media Sensations, TV Shows/Reviews

After being fired from talk show, “The Real“, singer Tamar Braxton has been all over the blogs for falling out with her girl friends Tameka “Tiny” Harris and Antonia “Toya” Wright.  Recently Tiny took to her IG account to wish Tamar’s son Logan (her godson) a Happy Birthday and her rapper “hubby” T.I. took it upon himself to leave a comment stating (and I’m paraphrasing) that both ladies needed to get off their “diva” sh*t and get on their god mama sh*t because they’re too grown for the drama! Tamar DID apologize on her IG account to Tiny after T.I’s post but she shaded Toya at the same time! (Whew!-the pettiness)

Here’s the caption from Tamar below: 

Ya know I’ve been thinking 🤔although I don’t feel like social media is the best place to work out personal issues…sometimes it can be the most effective way to get your love ones attention. I love you guys and Tiny, you…since I was 19 years old. I would have never dreamed that NONE of us would be in this position. Against public perceptions we know it’s NOT because of that show or lies that paperback Toya has said or anyone else who has had something to say about the disagreement you and I have had… because it’s simply OUR personal disagreement. I love you and all my God babies (all the kids) with all of my heart and you know this. I also love your husband @troubleman31 because he is my family also. How about we ALL sit down and talk and declare our new Love and mutual respect for each other and I’ll pay for and sing at your new vowel renewal ceremony. Life is too short and I’m ok with ignoring single, miserable hateful friends who WANT to see you and I at odds and instigating feuds with you and your husband. How about we all come together let it all go and bring you two who were the closest to me and two people who share so much love TOGETHER lean on each other to bring things back together again. 🤷🏼‍♀️who said it will be easy but Love and forgiveness is easier than being mad and full of hate. So with that all being said @majorgirl I’m sorry for my part in the hurt and want to have my best friend AND her family Including all of our kids and TIP all back together again❤️

JUNE 7

Toya, of course, clapped back at Tamar, but with way more venom taking to her IG account to say:

Anywho…watch Tamar’s interview with Big Tigger for an update on how she’s feeling towards ex-friend Toya.

Remy Ma Brings Out Lil Kim, Young M.A., Cardi B & MORE During Summer Jam 2017

Black community, Female Rappers, Hip Hop/R&B, Music, Social Media Sensations

THIS is Female EMPOWERMENT! We have been brainwashed to believe that only ONE female rapper can run hip-hop at a time and I am so GLAD to see Remy Ma do something that other femcees should have done a long time ago.  The Bronx native performed during Hot 97’s Summer Jam and brought out rappers Lil Kim, Young M.A., and Cardi B. She also showed love onstage to mogul Queen Latifah, MC Lyte, Monie Love and Lady of Rage.

What I would GIVE to have a compilation cd of hip-hop’s female MCs! And a TOUR! OMG!!! 

It also seems as if Remy Ma responded to a leaked diss track from Nicki Minaj (“Real Lies“) during Summer Jam ’17 by shouting “F*CK NICKI MINAJ before performing her diss record “SHether”.

I’m not sure if ya’ll are aware of Nicki Minaj’s antics behind the scenes but she attempts to use her influence and money to shut down other female artists and I think that it is downright disgusting and insecure of her to do so. She has tried to prevent Remy Ma from working, Cardi B, and singer K.Michelle. (Check our Instagram for more information about these stories-and Follow us if you don’t already!)

Cop Beats A JayWalker

Black community, Police Brutality, Social Media Sensations, US Events

 

There is a criminal investigation now underway for the disturbing actions of a Sacramento police officer who has been caught on video beating a man for…jaywalking. They have not yet released the officer’s name, but he has been placed on leave for the incident.

 

His dash cam footage was released on Tuesday and there was also footage shown from a bystander’s cell phone on social media.

The following statement was released from the Sacramento Police Dept. 

“The actions of the involved Sacramento police officer are disturbing and do not appear to be reasonable based upon the circumstances,” the Police Department said in a statement. “The Sacramento Police Department holds itself to the highest professional standard and the actions that were observed are not indicative of the dedicated women and men who work for the Department.”

BEAST MODE!! Remy Ma Releases 2nd Diss Track!

Celebrity News, Hip Hop/R&B, Social Media Sensations

Yesterday Remy Ma released a second diss track about Nicki Minaj titled “Another One.” This go round however, the Bronx rapper received a lot of back lash about it. The internet started saying things like “leave Nicki alone,” “she’s battling against her self,” “this diss record is trash,” etc.

Hmph!  Tough Crowd!

They even gave Remy a hard time for forgetting parts to her first diss track “ShEther” when she attempted to perform it live. DID YA’LL FORGET THAT SHE HAD JUST FREAKING WROTE IT? SHEESH!!!! (Ya’ll getting on my damn nerves…smh)

I personally thought that her second diss record was ok. It wasn’t as good as the first one but I’m the same person that didn’t like both of Drake‘s diss records vs Meek Mill and I hated Jay-z‘s diss record vs Nas back in the day. I thought it was super corny.

Any-who!  Of course Nicki Minaj still hasn’t responded by song, instead she’s chosen the passive aggressive way. She’s mouthed lyrics to other people’s songs and she’s tagged Beyoncé, Alicia Keys, and other famous people in pictures and videos with her. She’s also in Paris and has captioned #NickiINparis under several photos. WACK!!! This is for the culture of HIP HOP and she’s acting scared like a POP artist.

What happened to “Miley, what’s good” Nicki?  Lol.

After nothing but silence the ONLY move Nicki has attempted to make has been to pick up her cell phone and call around to beg people in the industry not to work with Remy.

You’re too high and mighty to battle back, but you’re going to tattle tale? LMAO! PLEASE SIT THIS GIRL DOWN IN THE POP SECTION! Can we have some real female rappers?

Well, after receiving  phone calls about what Nicki was doing Remy post-deleted a photo of a pre-surgery Minaj on her Instagram account.

What ya’ll think about this hip hop beef? Should Nicki respond? I feel like she’s going to wait until it blows over a little and then she’s going to try to “low-key” respond in a random song. WACK!!!

That’s ya’ll favorite rapper tho.

Don’t forget to leave ya comments below!!!!!!

Congratulations! Tyrese Secretly Wed Some Lady!

Celebrity News, Hip Hop/R&B, Social Media Sensations

Well, well. Tyrese Gibson is married now! The singer/actor released photos to his Instagram account and revealed that he secretly got married on Valentine’s Day. There was a huge uproar on the internet because underneath his wedding post he placed the hashtag #BlackQueen.

LMAO!! Ya’ll, this man was DRAGGED on the internet after that hashtag-YOU HEAR ME! Lol. I will say that the lady does APPEAR to be a lighter-skinned Black woman but all you have to do is go to her photos and you can CLEARLY see that she is Latina. She has a White father and a Hispanic mother. But poor Tyrese was so pissed at ya’ll that he had TMZ explain her ethnicity to the world.

Via Tmz: 

Tyrese found his own Amal Clooney because his mysterious new wife has plenty of degrees and money of her own … TMZ has learned.

A source close to the couple tells us the missus’ name is Samantha Lee — a New Jersey native who got a Master’s degree in social work at the University of Georgia. We’re told she’s put her education to work on serious issues — fighting sex and human trafficking and counseling for inmates. She’s also handled cases for the Division of Family and Children Services in GA.

She’s accomplished and well-paid — we’re told Samantha lives comfortably on a hefty salary.

Sources close to the couple — who secretly tied the knot on Valentine’s Day — say they met after Tyrese posted an open letter in 2015 to his “wife of the future.” Samantha filled that slot after they met through mutual friends.

Haters went after Tyrese for referring to Samantha as his “black queen.” Not that it matters, but her heritage is Ecuadorian, Jamaican … and African-American.

So, a simple “Congratulations” will do

 

This lady came out of NOWHERE! And ya’ll know that the industry is good for some damn arranged celebrity marriages. Tyrese out here lying and claiming that she’s black…smh. She is BEAUTIFUL, but she is NOT African-American and I’m thinking that the man lied about it because the majority of his fan base are Black women. He knows a lot of ya’ll gonna stop supporting him just like ya’ll did Kanye West. Lol. 

Oh, Well!This is a mess already. Plus, what happened to that bald-headed lady? V. Bozeman? I thought they were dating or something.

Anyway,  Congratulations! (I guess)

Here are some more photos of his #blackqueen

I Started Recording Youtube Videos (UGH!)

Advice, Celebrity News, Relationship Tips, Social Media Sensations

Ok! Soooo I’ve been debating if I should share my YouTube videos with you guys or not. I decided that I definitely should. It was only up for debate because I felt so nervous and self-conscious trying to record the first video. (It took 5 or 6 takes!)

But I have now gotten used to the video aspect (after creating TWO whole VIDEOS-lol) and it’s something that I’m going to do regularly. I will have discussions on relationships, finances, tv/movie reviews, and trending topics. The trending topic segment has been named the “Hello” Segment. I thought that the videos would be a good visual for those that actually read my blog and/or follow AMR on social media.

Check out my videos below! Tell me what you think in our comment section! (Be nice please…my friends and family have already given it to me raw and uncut! LOL)
