City Girls Have The Wildest Night On Twitter While At The #BBMAs & Not Just Because Caresha’s Rumored Boyfriend Diddy Was Hosting & Producing

The City Girls were trending as the Billboard Music Awards aired live from Las Vegas. Fans were chatting about Diddy doing the most as host and executive producer with mentions of his rumored girlfriend Yung Miami/Caresha. However, Caresha’s rap partner JT was trending for something totally different. More inside…

The City Girls lit up the 2022 Billboard Music Awards at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, causing social media to get into an uproar. Soon as the City Girls hit the stage to present the Top R&B Artist award (given to Doja Cat), Twitter instantly lit up, causing rapper JT to trend.

The reason? A wardrobe malfunction.

The sheer silver gown the 29-year-old raptress was wearing (that she SLAYED) shared a little more thigh cleavage that she expected. Someone tweeted (and then deleted), “Why nobody told @ThegirlJT to put her kitty away”

The “P**** Talk” rapper responded, “I have on black panties RELAX.”

 

Here’s what had everyone all riled up last night:

THE B-ROLL LIFE FROM BEHIND THE SCENES AT THE 2022 BILLBOARD MUSIC AWARDS

‘QUEENS’ Canceled After One Season + Teyana Taylor, Laura Harrier & Lance Reddick Join ‘White Men Can’t Jump’ Remake

ABC’s "Queens" has been dethroned after one season!

In the film world, Teyana Taylor and Laura Harrier have been added to the cast of the White Men Can’t Jump remake. All the entertainment deets inside…

No Season 2 for “QUEENS!”

ABC has dethroned "The Nasty B******" after giving the show the axe after its first season, which included 13 episodes.

The musical drama – helmed by “Scandal” writer Zahir McGhee – starred Eve, Brandy, Naturi Naughton and Nadine Velazquez as four members of a 90s girl group called The Nasty B*tches. It followed the hit Hop Hip group – estranged, out-of-touch and in their 40s –  as they reunite for a chance to recapture their fame and regain the swagger they had as the ’90s group that made them legends in the hip-hop world.

During the first season, the women were able to squash decade-old beefs with one another, growing closer together before lauding their own record label. Brianna – played by Eve – was shot midseason and went off-screen to “recover,” a scene which was written in to accommodate Eve’s real-life pregnancy.

The series averaged almost 1.9 million total viewers along with a 0.5 demo rating. Out of the eight TV drama that aired on ABC this season, “Queens” ranked last in audience and was only better than “Promised Land” in the demo. According to TVLine, "QUEENS" was the least watched non-CW freshman drama this TV season.

By the way, Eve just experienced her first Mother’s Day here in the U.S. and the U.K.:

Teyana Taylor (Coming 2 America), Laura Harrier (BlacKkKlansman) and Lance Reddick (John Wick) will join the cast of 20th Century Studios’ remake of White Men Can’t Jump. They’ll be joining previously announced cast members Sinqua Walls and Jack Harlow. As we told you previously, folks are NOT here for Jack – who doesn’t have any acting experience – 

No plot details have been released just yet.

Deadline reports:

The film will offer a new take on Ron Shelton’s 1992 sports comedy, starring Woody Harrelson, Wesley Snipes and Rosie Perez, which saw Black and white basketball hustlers join forces to double their chances of winning money on the street courts and in a basketball tournament. Harlow is stepping into the role originated by Harrelson, with Walls taking on Snipes’, and Reddick playing Benji Allen, the father of Walls’ character Kamal. Benji is living with MS and has been Kamal’s coach and support system since a very young age.

Veteran music video director Calmatic, who helmed the upcoming House Party remake for New Line, is mounting the reboot. Kenya Barris wrote the script with Doug Hall and is producing via his Khalabo Ink Society banner. Blake Griffin, Ryan Kalil and Noah Weinstein are exec producing through their Mortal Media banner, alongside Doug Hall and E. Brian Dobbins.

Previously, Kenya Barris said the film isn’t exactly remake of the original film. It’s moreso an inspiration for the new basketball comedy they’re trying to create.

‘Masked Singer’ Fans Think Firefly Is Either Teyana Taylor Or Monica After Dramatic Performance

”Masked Singer” fans seem to think they know who is inside the Firefly costume and two names are at the top of everyone’s list: Teyana Taylor and Monica. Watch the dramatic performance (that resulted in medics rushing the stage) and tell us who you think it is…

 

Season 7 of ”The Masked Singer" premiere started off with a dramatic twist.

Firefly was just seconds into her rendition of Chaka Khan’s “Ain’t Nobody” when she abruptly stopped singing, bent over and grabbed her throat, reportedly gasping for air. The judges – Robin Thicke, Jenny McCarthy, Ken Jeong and Nicole Scherzinger — immediately sprung into action, specifically Ken who ran up to the stage to offer help.

“She’s choking! Get a medic right now,” he said

After a commercial break, the show’s host Nick Cannon returned to inform viewers that Firefly was OK and that she would return to perform.

“The good news is, this Firefly is one heck of a fighter,” he shared. “She’s on stage right now.”

You couldn’t tell anything happened to Firefly because her performance was outstanding. Take a look below:

”The Masked Singer” shared a clip from Firefly’s performance on Twitter and now, everyone believes they know who it is. The two top names are Teyana Taylor and Monica. Peep the tweets below:

To help you decide who is in the Firefly costume, below are the clues they shared before her performance. 

In the clip, fans noticed the Statue of Liberty – a representation of New York (where Teyana is from), a microphone (which indicates the person is a singer/performer) and the clip noted Firefly is an actor that worked with Tyler Perry. If you didn’t know, Teyana starred in Tyler Perry’s Madea’s Big Happy Family film.

‘CAP A** STORY!’ – Teyana Taylor Responds To TikTok That Alleged Iman Shumpert’s Cheating Caused Her To ‘Overdose’ On ‘Drugs’

Teyana Taylor responds to a viral TikTok video which alleged she overdosed on “drugs” after she allegedly found out her husband, Iman Shumpert, cheated on her. She wants everyone to know the entire story is CAP and she’s mad folks even believed this white woman’s made up story about her during Black History Month.

 

Deets inside…

Teyana Taylor isn’t here for folks speaking rumors about her relationship.

Before the weekend rolled around, a TikTok video about Teyana and Iman Shumpert’s relationship started gaining traction. The woman behind the TikTok account claims people send her stories about celebrities and she reenacts them. The TikToker received a story from someone who claims they were an assistant to the singer and that they witnessed They “overdose” on “candy” – which was a reference for drugs – after learning Iman allegedly cheated on her.

The caption of the video (which has been deleted or hidden) read, “November ’21: Me working as an assistant for…singer (female emoji) with TV show and two daughters. Her watching her husband on TV and him being showered with accolades for his performance (background is the show Dancing With The Stars).”

Peep the entire clip below:

 

Now….. hold on pic.twitter.com/aZS49rKwyF

— thassabigwordforelmo (@tiabbea) February 24, 2022

 

The TikToker took the video down.

In a now deleted post, the “Bare With Me” singer addressed the drama, confirming the story is FALSE and warned the woman who re-enacted the story better get her coins ready, alluding that she’s going to sue!

In November 2021, Tey posted a photo of herself in the hospital after pulling out of a performance at the Premier Theater at Foxwoods Resort Casino in Mashantucket, CT.

”The person who sent in this CAP a** TikTok story is a fool, the person who ‘re-enacted’ this CAP a** story is a fool (she better have her court coin ready) but the people who believed the CAP a** story are biggest fools smh,” she wrote.

”Y’all allowed a YT girl to pull some sh*t like this during black history month???,” Tey asked. “1. NO ONE have been ‘hired’ or ‘fired’ on my team. My whole staff is my family & all still currently work for me. 2. I DO NOT DO DRUGS, sh*t I don’t even smoke weed & I only drink occasionally. 4. If I overdosed where’s the 911 call?? How would I be able to walk myself in to the hospital? How would I be able to get discharged from the hospital in less than 4 hours?? How would I be able to perform in ATL perfectly 2days later?,” she asked.

She continued, “3. NOBODY AND I MEAN ABSOLUTELY NOBODY CAN MAKE PETUNIA OVERDOSE on a damn thing. I’d kill @imanshumpert fine a**, put him in a nice suit and bury him my damn self before I EVER let him or ANYBODY to push me to drugs or take myself out.”

Teyana said no one is spilling HER tea because it “ain’t mine to spill. Clout seems to be the only true ‘CANDY’ involved in this whole situation.’

Welp. There you have it.

So I am really saddened to have not been able to do the same for you last night. My team & I tried everything down to the very last second to get me out on that stage, but my body simply just gave out, which actually started a few days ago. SHUT DOWN, my body actually low key betrayed me cause ah b*tch was tryna get on that stage Y’all know I’m with the sh*ts! y’all have seen me with a broken foot and all types of other crazy shit but still got on that stage and bodied it,” she continued.

However, I promise I will be back to CT rescheduled and better than ever & all tickets will be honored for yesterday’s show!!!! Shoutout to my lovelies @arilennox & @sevyn for holdin it downnnnn! As well as Heather Lowery and the entire @femmeitforward team for their extreme understanding & support. Shout to @babyjunie4 for holding it down for mommy,” she concluded.

Proud Family Reboot Gets The Star-Studded Treatment – Normani, Lil Nas X & Lizzo Join The Cast + The Shumperts Reality Show Gets Renewed

Disney’s hit cartoon "Proud Family" is getting the reboot treatment with a star-studded cast. Deets on Normani, Lil Nas X and Lizzo getting "louder and prouder" in the animation world, plus deets on Teyana Taylor  & Iman Shumpert‘s reality show getting the greenlight for another season inside….

Remember Disney’s "The Proud Family?" It premiered on Disney 20 years ago with its iconic Solange/Destiny’s Child theme song, ran for a few seasons, and then it was canceled.

Now, it’s getting a revival. Not only is being revived, it’s loaded with a star-studded cast for the new generation.

Although the show only ran for two seasons, it was a big hit with Disney fans. To celebrate its 20th anniversary, a reboot titled "The Proud Family revival Louder and Prouder" is set to drop.

According to Deadline, the reboot has gathered a healthy group of A-listers to feature on the upcoming revival, including Normani, Lizzo, Lil Nas X, Chance the Rapper, Leslie Odom Jr., Tiffany Haddish, Lena Waithe, Anthony Anderson, Gabrielle Union, Debbie Allen, James Pickens Jr., Courtney B. Vance, Jane Lynch, Marsai Martin, Jaden Smith, Glynn Turman, Lamorne Morris, Brenda Song, Tina Knowles, Eva Longoria, Holly Robinson Peete, Al Roker, Bretman Rock, Gabby Douglas, Laurie Hernandez and Dominique Dawes, among others.

SHEESH! That’s more star power than we were expecting, but we’re not mad. Producers are making sure the animated series comes back "louder and prouder."

"The Proud Family revival Louder and Prouder" is set to premiere on Disney+ in 2022.

A few celeb newbies will also be joining the cast.  Deadline reports:

New recurring stars announced today include Asante Blackk (This Is Us) as Penny’s boyfriend, Kareem; rapper Artist “A Boogie” Dubose as Maya’s gamer brother, Francis “KG” Leibowitz-Jenkins; Raquel Lee Bolleau (Real Husbands of Hollywood), who will reprise her role as Nubia Gross; and Marcus T. Paulk (Red Tails), who reprises his role as Penny’s classmate, Myron.

…….

Airing on Disney Channel between 2001 and 2005, The Proud Family followed the misadventures of teenager Penny Proud (Kyla Pratt) and her numerous eccentric family members. Louder and Prouder is currently in production at Disney Television Animation and will of course pick up the story of its central character, as it catches up with her parents Oscar (Tommy Davidson) and Trudy (Paula Jai Parker), her twin siblings BeBe and CeCe, her grandmother Suga Mama (JoMarie Payton) and dog Puff, and members of her loyal crew including Dijonay Jones (Karen Malina White), LaCienega Boulevardez (Alisa Reyes) and Zoey Howzer (Soleil Moon Frye), among others.

Other original cast members reprising their roles, as previously announced, are Cedric the Entertainer, Carlos Mencia, Maria Canals-Barrera and Alvaro Gutierrez. Additional recurring cast members new to the world of The Proud Family include Keke Palmer, Billy Porter, Zachary Quinto, and EJ Johnson.

Hard to believe its been 20 who years since the show premiered. Much like the show previously did, the reboot will follow the day-to-day life as a Black American family, which will touch on social issues, activism and more. According to Vulture, Penny Proud (the show’s main character) is older now, so that’ll be cool to see how she evolved.

Peep "The Proud Family" featurette below:

 

And they better come through with the right theme song too!

Normani Understood The MTV VMAs Performance Assignment & ATE, Channeled Janet Jackson With Surprise Teyana Taylor Cameo

One thing about Normani, sis is going to serve up an epic performance. The 2021 MTV Video Music Awards tried to sleep on Normani, but she proved just why she should have been slated to perform from the very beginning.

Get into her Janet Jackson-inspired performance that featured a surprise cameo from Teyana Taylor inside…

 

The 2021 MTV Video Music Awards tried to play our good sis Normani. Let’s not act like she didn’t SLAY her solo performance at the 2019 MTV Video Music Awards.

Weeks before the awards show, fans were rushing Normani with questions about whether or not she would be performing at this years MTV Video Music Awards. Not shying away from the drama, she revealed the awards show hadn’t reached out to invite her to perform after the first round of performers were announced.

Normani’s fans went hard in the paint for the former Fifth Harmony singer, creating online petitions and running up hashtags like #LetNormaniPerform to help knock some sense in the awards show producers. Well, they finally caught on and announced she would be performing days before the live show went down inside at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center.

And boy were we in for a treat!

The 25-year-old entertainer hit the stage for an epic performance of her chart topping hit, "Wild Side," featuring Cardi B. It was the first time she performed the song on television. Cardi B couldn’t make it since she just gave birth to her second baby, a boy, whom she shares with Offset.

Towards the end of her performance, the "Motivation" singer surprised fans with an homage to Janet Jackson’s “Would You Mind” that featured a cameo from Teyana Taylor all tied up. Fans lost it as Normani straddled Teyana (both rocking London Couture) while twerking, bringing back memories of how Janet made that man’s life years ago.

 

Surpriseeeeeee @Normani

Maxim announced Tey as its "Hot 100" issue cover star. It’s the first time a Black woman has received the honor and we’re totally here for it. Even thught it took umpteen years and a sudden interest in Black Lives.

Still, Tey is GORGEOUS and she deserves all of the praise – and not just for her looks because she’s much more than a pretty face.

“Somebody pinch me!!!!," Teyana wrote in the caption of her Maxim cover, shot by Gilles Bensimon.

“WOW…. Stepping back in front of the lens has been a journey of self-reflection and self-confidence,” the mom-of-two wrote.“Living up to [the] name and title of this shoot wholeheartedly made me nervous.”

The 30-year-old wife of Iman Shumpert surely didn’t show it. In the caption, she talked about how she pulled up on the photoshoot after dropping her eldest daughter, Junie, off at school and how her sweatpants and beanie made it in the shoot.

“Embrace and love yourselves for who [and] what you are because only the purest heart shines through,” she added.

Yes, Teyana in her regular everyday sweats and a skully slayed the Sexiest Woman Alive cover shoot and we stan!

By now, they’ve seen the online chatter about a possible romantic situation between them, but neither of them have denied or confirmed it.

After calling it quits with Cassie in 2018, Diddy has seemingly been single. Menawhile Yung Miami (real name Caresha Brownlee) has been on-again, off-again with producer Southside. The twosome welcomed their daughter, Summer Miami, in October 2019. Maybe sis wants to level up. Who knows.

Are you here for a Diddy x Yung Miami situationship? Sound off in the comments.

Last night’s soirée was star-studded affiar which included appearances from T.I. & Tiny Harris, Teyana Taylor, Lil Baby, City Girls’ rapper JT, Gucci Mane & his wife Keyshia Ka’oir, Lil Durk, Lil Yachty, Lil Baby’s on-again girlfriend Jayda Cheaves (peep them leaving together in the video), Lil Wayne’s daughter Reginae Carter, her mom Toya Johnson, "Married To Medicine" star Quad Webb-Lunceford and more.

We love seeing Teyana Taylor and Iman Shumpert’s family fun on social media. And the fun will continue as they have been tapped to star in another reality series.

The Shumperts will give an unfiltered behind-the-scenes look at their lives as they continue to build their empire while juggling music, fashion, business and family with E!’s “We Got Love Iman & Teyana.“ The power couple are also executive producers of the upcoming series alongside STX Unscripted.

We can’t wait to see Lil Junie work her magic in front of the camera. Here’s a dose of what’s to come:

#Coming2America Reactions: Wesley Snipes Steals The Show, Teyana Taylor SLAYS, Nomzamo Mbatha’s Bomb Breakout Role

Coming 2 America took us BACK to Zamunda & Queens for another round of laughs. Wesley Snipes was the film’s favorite, Teyana Taylor served up slayage and everyone’s talking about Nomzamo Mbatha’s breakout performance. More inside…

It’s here!

The long-awaited sequel to the hit 1988 original has dropped on Amazon Prime Video and everyone is talking about it on social media.

Coming 2 America served up all the nostalgic feels as several of the film’s actors returned to reprise their roles, including Eddie Murphy, Arsenio Hall, James Earl Jones, Shari Headley, Vanessa Bell Calloway, Garcelle Beauvais, Paul Bates, and Louie Anderson.

The star-studded cast also featured new faces, including Hollywood vet Wesley Snipes, singer/actress/dancer Teyana Taylor, “Supermarket Sweep” host Leslie Jones, “Power” star/R&B crooner Rotimi, "The Last O.G." star Tracy Morgan, comedian Michael Blackson, "Crashing" actor Jermaine Fowler, If Beale Street Could Talk actress KiKi Layne, and comedienne Luenell.

Eddie’s real-life daughter, Bella Murphy, played his on-screen daughter, Omma:

— Prime Video (@PrimeVideo) March 6, 2021

It was like a family reunion with several new additions you didn’t mind coming over.

Not to drop any spoilers, but the first scene of the movie takes us to the wealthy African nation of Zamunda inside Prince Akeem’s (who eventually becomes king) massive royal palace.

Turning Rick Ross’ ATL home into Zamunda palace?

"He has a beautiful estate. It truly was a palace" – @TracyMorgan#NBA #NBATwitter #TheJump #Coming2America pic.twitter.com/Tmz79dQCQt

— The Jump on ESPN (@NBATheJump) March 3, 2021

Rapper Rick Ross opened the doors of his estate (that sits on 235 acres) in Fayetteville, Ga. to help bring the African nation to life. Much of the film was filmed in Atlanta and production needed a space big enough that could deliver African royalty through the screen. Sayless. Rozay’s 109-room palace that spans over 45,000 square-feet (previously owned by boxer Evander Holyfield) was the perfect location. 

The MMG honcho made a cameo in the film as a soilder of General Izzi’s army.

WARNING! Mini-spoilers ahead!

It seems everyone’s favorite character was General Izzi, played by Wesley Snipes, who is Prince Akeem’s main rival in the film. He played the villian role very well and was very funny. Peep reactions below:

Coming to America 2 is a good movie. Watch it. One thing we should appreciate is that we all have types of movies we watch. Coming to America 2 was hyped and it raised expectations from people. Watch it with an open mind. Some watch DC movies and to some those are not good at all

Overall, we enjoyed the film and we appreciated how the storylines and themes were "updated" to reflect our society now. If you haven’t yet, check out Coming 2 America steaming on Amazon Prime Video now. Tells us in the comments YOUR thoughts about the movie.

Teyana Taylor Says She Would Be HONORED To Play Lil Kim In Biopic After Kim Revealed She Only Wanted Tey To Portray Her

Lil Kim reveals the only person in the industry she wants to play her in a biopic would be Teyana Taylor. Naturally, Teyana – a huge Lil Kim fan – said she would be honored to do so. Peep their exchange inside…

With everyone getting a biopic these days there’s no surprise one would be done on one of the hottest female rappers in Hip Hop: Lil Kim.

While nothing is official and deets are scarce, Kim does have something in the works.

“I have a secret, but I can’t tell you,” she said during a video conference interview with ESSENCE. “It’s dealing with me and my life a little bit, kinda.”

We’ll get the full deets about the project by next month, according to Kimmy. While she didn’t elaborate on what she’s working on, the NYC raptress said she’s looking to produce both a movie and a documentary-style project about her life to put some of the rumors about her to rest.

“I want people to know the real Kim. All the other stories that everybody else tells, chile, don’t listen to it,” she said.

In 2009, Naturi Naughton portrayed Lil Kim in the Notorious B.I.G.’s biopic, Notorious and she was NOT happy about it. She made it known she didn’t like who played her and that she would have never approved. When asked who she would like to play her in her own biopic she said it would be multiple people because she would have to find the perfect actress for each stage of her life. As for who she would want to play her as a young adult, she chose triple threat Teyana Taylor.

“It can only be a girl that’s from the hood that I’m from,” she said. “I love Teyana, she’s my only other thought. There’s nobody else in the industry at all but Teyana. But, even before Teyana — I love Teyana, but she’s from Harlem –before Teyana, I would love to give some little girls from Brooklyn a chance so I can connect. Really connect.”

“I would go to Brooklyn and find a girl within that period that I feel represents Brooklyn, knows what it’s like to grow up in Brooklyn,” she said. “And then once I got in the movie and I get a little older, I would play myself from that stage. But from that point, I gotta go to Brooklyn and give some little girl from Brooklyn a chance to really, really show, I know who Lil Kim is for real.”

That would be dope. Peep the interview above.

Teyana – who is a huge Lil Kim fan – said she would be honored to play Kim in a biopic:

In 2016, Teyana SLAYED her Lil Kim tribute performance during the VH1 Hip Hop Honors ceremony:

Several celebs were in attendance including her husband Iman Shumpert and their daughter Junie, Cardi B and her daughter Kulture, Quavo, Winnie Harlow and more. Peep flicks from the event below:

MAC Cosmetics recently announced a limited-edition makeup launch in collaboration with Teyana Taylor. And it’ll serve up a 90s vibe.

MAC x Teyana Taylor collection has been over a year in the making, born out of a partnership between MAC and Teyana stemming from her authentic love for the brand and its artistry. As a powerful, creative artist, Teyana taps into the spirit of individuality, is a trendsetter and a true embodiment of MAC’s creative compass. Inspired by her love for classic 90’s fashion and beauty, Teyana worked alongside MAC to create her exclusive, multi-product collection – from the products, packaging, product names and even the photo shoot.

“I was inspired by the 90s and the heart & soul of Harlem and wanted to show that through the shades and packaging," the mogul mom said in a press release. Teyana Taylor. “I’m very excited to be partnering with a company like M•A•C who I’ve watched collaborate with strong women of color over the years. I’ve been a fan of M•A•C ever since I was 15 years old and started experimenting with makeup, it was the first brand that made me like makeup. I’m so grateful and excited to be sharing this beautiful collection I created with the M•A•C team but also hoping to inspire other young women that anything and everything is possible.”
