Pregnant Blac Chyna Looks Forward to Showing People That She’s Not Just Some ”Stripper Ho”

0

Blac Chyna is baring it all, both physically and mentally.

The pregnant model and entrepreneur, who is expecting her first child with Rob Kardashian, posed nearly naked for Ellemagazine’s latest issue, where she dons nothing but some sheer lingerie and her growing baby bump in the series of black and white photos.

But along with flaunting her figure for the camera, Chyna talks about her journey to this point (noting she once made $15,000 stripping one night, and mentioned that exTyga can be “kinda cheap” sometimes), and opens up about her highly publicized relationship with the E! star, the roller coaster ride with his famous family, and her future as a Kardashian—which will begin with a brand new E! series called Rob & Chyna.

And that’s something she looks forward to most, because she hopes to strip (no pun intended) people’s preconceived notions of her away through the wonderful world of reality TV.

“I wanted to show people my personality, that I’m not just a pretty face or what some people paint me out to be: this bad person, this stripper ho,” she says. “I want them to see me as a mom, a business-woman, a growing being.”

She continues, “We’ll bring people into our world, and then they will start rooting for us, and when you have people rooting you on … it always makes things better. Rob is going through his depression, but I feel like if he has the support from his fans and people from the outside, it will help. It helps to have people around to give you that confidence.”

Blac Chyna’s relationship with Rob birthed a lot of drama with the Kardashian family. Many began to question Chyna’s motives for being with Rob, and the tangled web of crossover lovers within that group (as we all know, Kylie Jenner is dating Chyna’s ex Tyga), however the bunch have managed to get over past grievances and move forward (just don’t keep asking how they’re doing).

“We all have a really good relationship right now,” Chyna claims. “Everybody is talking. Everything is good.” However, when the interviewer tries to dig deeper, Chyna responds, “I said everybody is fine now. Can you please move on?”

So, they move on to focus more on baby news. Blac Chyna and Rob will reveal the sex of the baby on the premiere of their show on Sept. 11, but have already confirmed they will not be giving their little one a “K” name. “The baby won’t have a K name. We both agreed,” she says.

Best and Worst Dressed at the 2016 Video Music Awards

0

If you can’t get a moonman, there’s always a chance to make the Best Dressed list.

As pop culture fans know, the MTV Video Music Awards can bring out the fun and funky in your favorite singers and celebrities. As it turned out, Sunday night was no different as dozens of familiar faces walked the red carpet at Madison Square Garden in New York City. So who looked hot and who looked not their best? Let’s dive in.

Credit must be given to the one and only Beyoncé. Before wowing the entire audience with her performance, the genius mind behind Lemonade wowed in her semi-sheer gown that featured a wing-like feather collar. As for that bling, reports say it was $12 million worth of Lorraine Schwartz diamonds.

When not posing with her man Meek Mill, Nicki Minaj worked a stunning royal blue Bao Tranchi dress. Meanwhile,  we were loving Tinashe’s red hot train and matching skinny scarf.

And before hitting the ballroom for Dancing With the Stars, Amber Rose added her own signature style to the show with her plunging black blazer and shades.

And while we wish we could praise all the looks, some just didn’t exactly hit the highest note.

Perhaps it’s those bright gold pants. Maybe it’s the yellow hair brighter than the sun. Regardless, Cassie’s look caught many fans’ attention for not the best reasons.

As for Teen Mom star Farrah Abraham, we’re all for trying risks at MTV awards shows. But executing a full-on Halloween costume may be a bit much in the middle of August.

As for G-Eazy, we get that his main focus was a performance of “Make Me” with Britney Spears. But perhaps a suit could have looked good on the rapper. And for our girl Rita Ora, the shoes look absolutely painful and we’re a bit confused by the touch of red. In this case, less may be more.

Better luck next time, ladies and gentleman.

Other than taking home a new award last night with the rest of his DNCE band members (for winning Best New Artist at the 2016 MTV Video Music Awards), Joe Jonas decided to add a little something new to a whole different type of collection.

He and Nick Jonas got matching tattoos!

The brothers decided to kick off their VMA night by getting inked. Just a few hours before the awards show kicked off, theytattooed matching arrows on the back of their arms that point at one another, and of course Nick caught the whole thing on Snapchat.

In back-to-back videos that he shared to his My Story, Nick captured the process of the tattoo, showing both himself and Joe getting inked while lying on a chair as the artists drew the arrows on their triceps.

rs_1024x759-160829082205-1024.nick-jonas-tattoo.cm.82916

Nick then shared a photo of the final outcome, showing the brothers standing side-by-side with their backs to the camera, revealing their ink and writing “Boom” across the pic.

Meanwhile, Nick took the stage at the VMAs shortly after getting the new tat as one of the VMA performers.

Joined by Ty Dolla $ign, the dynamic duo traveled to Tick Tock Diner for their performance of “Bacon” off of Nick’s latest album.

Also spotted throughout the performance? Ashley Graham and DNCE, both making surprise appearances as Nick danced around the diner.

After the show, Nick went back into the audience and cheered on his brother’s band as they took home the Moonman for Best New Artist.

Break out the sequins, rip open those shirts and cue the music: the Dancing With the Starsseason 23 cast has been revealed. ABC made it official with the contestants coming together on Tuesday, Aug. 30 on Good Morning America.

As expected, the cast includes Olympian (and scandal-maker) Ryan Lochte Laurie Hernandez and Kenneth “Babyface” Edmonds.

Locthe said he joined the show as a way to move on from his Rio scandal.

“It’s been—the past 2 weeks have been the lowest point of my life…Fans, my family, my friends have all been really positive, keeping me going…I want to put that behind me. I’m never one to dwell on the past,” he said on GMA. “I just want to move forward…Everyone’s got to be sick and tired of hearing about this, I know I am. I just want to move forward and…put on my dancing shoes. At least try to.”

“I’m definitely really excited. This is completely new for me. I think it’s time for me to hang up my speedo and put on my dancing shoes,” he said later in the show. So can he dance? “No, I can’t. I’m starting from scratch. This is a new experience. I’m going to treat this like going into the Olympics…”

And then there’s the story of a former Brady, who, along with her hair of gold, is competing just like her TV mother. Check out the full cast list now: including some familiar faces returning as professional dancers, below.

Rihanna and Drake Go “Dancing and Drinking” After the 2016 MTV VMAs: All the Details

0

Drake made Rihanna feel like the only girl in the world Sunday night.

After being “stuck in traffic” and missing most of the 2016 MTV VMAs at Madison Square Garden, the rapper, 29, showed up to present his girlfriend with the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award. Drake sang Rihanna’s praises, saying, “She’s someone I’ve been in love with since I was 22 years old. She’s one of my best friends in the world. All my adult life I’ve looked up to her, even though she’s younger than me. She’s a living, breathing legend in our industry.”

After giving Drake a sweet (albeit slightly awkward) kiss, Rihanna, 28, took a moment to reflect on the magnitude of the moment. “When I think about the Vanguard Award and receiving this tonight, all I could think of was my country. They’re gonna be so proud. This is the first Vanguard to land anywhere close to my country,” she explained. “It’s not my own—it’s my family’s. It’s my fans’. It’s my country’s. It’s the Caribbean’s, as a whole. It’s women. It’s black women.” She thanked her collaborators “for supporting me over and over”—her boyfriend among them. “Thank you, Drake, for that,” Rihanna said. “Thank you MTV. I had so much fun!”

Throughout the nearly three-hour telecast, Rihanna brought down the house as she performed a medley of her biggest hits, including “Don’t Stop the Music,” “Only Girl in the World,” “We Found Love,” “Where Have You Been,” “Rude Boy,” “What’s My Name,” “Work,” “Needed Me,” “Pour It Up,” “Bitch Better Have My Money,” “Stay,” “Diamonds” and “Love on the Brain.”

After the show ended, Drake posted anInstagram picture of himself giving Rihanna a kiss on the cheek. “This is a night for us all to be thankful for what you have done for us!” he wrote. “You have affected so many of our lives in the best way possible. Tonight we celebrate you!”

For the next few hours, Rihanna and Drake slipped away before they reappeared at Up&Down nightclub around 3:15 a.m.Hailey Baldwin, Taylor Hill, Jaden Smith,Jasmine Tookes and more were already partying by the time the couple arrived with friends and a few bodyguards. “They were holding hands when they walked in,” a source tells E! News exclusively. “Many people left at that point in the night, but they seemed like all they cared about was each other anyway.”

Rihanna turned heads in a gold, fringed jumpsuit.

The “Too Good” collaborators “didn’t leave each other’s side,” the source adds. In fact, “Drake didn’t let Rihanna out of his sight” the entire night.

It was a time for “drinking and dancing”—and that’s exactly what they did.

Halle Berry has an Oscar. Just remember that when you watch the latest edition of “Lyrical Improv with Lynn Hirschberg” from W Magazine. In this episode, in fact, we get not one, but two Academy Award-winning actresses’ takes on theBritney Spears catalog just days before Brit drops her anticipated ninth album, Glory.

While Berry goes the dramatic reading route for her poetic take on Spears’ iconic “Oops I Did It Again,” Jodie Foster has a bit of fun with the inscrutable lyrics to “Toxic,” alongside singing Bollywood star Priyanka Chopra.

Simon Cowell on The X Factor judging panel: ‘We all go back a long way – it’s like a reunion!’

0

The biggest show on TV is back this weekend; say goodbye to your social lives as The X Factorreturns to dominate Saturday and Sunday evenings from now until Christmas. This year head judge Simon Cowell is joined by retuning mentors Sharon Osbourne, Nicole Scherzinger and Louis Walsh – and he couldn’t be happier.

Also back this year is host Dermot O’Leary – who was briefly replaced by Olly Murs and Caroline Flack last series – and Simon, 56, is happy to admit that some of his changes simply didn’t work.

He said: “Me and Louis have a relationship that goes back a long way. Louis’ naughty, the auditions are long days but he makes it much more fun. I was actually thinking that about all of them, it’s like a little reunion, they are all on great form.”

X Factor favourite Cheryl has stepped down after five inconsecutive series, and Rita Ora and Nick Grimshaw both left the show after judging for just one year, but Simon is confident he’s found the winning recipe of personalities.

“Me and Sharon are a bit like Tom and Jerry,” he explained. “But we love each other secretly, and Nicole is slightly nuts – I love that. Then there’s Dermot, I missed him so much.”

simon1-a

And Dermot thinks the reason Simon, Sharon, Nicole and Louis work well together is because they’re all a little bit “unpredictable” and “insane”.

He added: “You want those great moments when people chuck water at each other and it’s not pre-planned, when people walk off, disagree, or steal each other’s songs. The more orchestrated it is, the worse it is.”

The X Factor returns Saturday 27th and Sunday 28th August at 8pm on ITV.

Caitlyn Jenner, Lance Bass, Matt Bomer and More Stars Come Together in Support of Orlando Nightclub Shooting Victims

Hollywood is still hurting after the Orlando Pulse nightclub shooting that tragically killed 49 people.

Lance Bass hosted the onePulse Foundation’s benefit organized to honor the victims and their families on Friday night, which saw support from Caitlyn Jenner, Matt Bomer, Will.i.am and JC Chasez as well as a musical presentation from Jessie J and surprise performance from Stevie Wonder.

In between emotional speeches and heartfelt onstage moments that memorialized the deadliest incident against the LGBT community in American history and the deadliest mass shooting by a single gunman, Bomer told E! News that there is a common denominator bridging the gaps between those who are passionate about helping the cause.

“In the face of horrible tragedy there is love and there is support,” the actor said. “And that people in all communities, Hollywood and all over the country, it doesn’t matter if you’re an actor or a celebrity or whatever—we care and we support you.”

rs_1024x759-160820091320-1024.lance-bass.cm.82016

Bass echoed his sentiment, telling us, “Although it’s not our community, we’re all the way over here in California, it hit us too. It hit us hard. Just because we can’t relate, we can relate to what [the victims] were celebrating.”

As a member of the LGBT community, the singer says he felt especially connected to many of the victims. “Most of us, you know, were raised where we were hiding ourselves. For the first time, a lot of those kids were in that club being themselves and not being afraid, and when something like this happens, again, fear is instilled in that community and we want to show them that we can’t be afraid,” he added.

Candis Cayne also drew from her own experience as a former employee of Orlando-based nightclubs when discussing with E! News the impact the shooting had on her.

“It was always a safe haven, a place you can go where you could be with family, you could have respect, you could be safe and you knew that the outside world wasn’t going to come in and get you. And so that kind of always shattered that night to a community that went there just to be around people that understand who they were,” she said.

rs_634x1024-160820091024-634.matt-bomer.cm.82016

This event is far from the first celebrities have come together for in support of the June 12 terrorist attack.

In the weeks following the tragedy, stars young and old joined a Human Rights Campaign video—which was shared at last night’s benefit—to honor those lost. Each of the 49 celebrities—among them Lady Gaga, Kerry Washington, Demi Lovato and Laverne Cox—appeared on screen to narrate specific details about each one of the victims, including unique stories about how they met their partners, what they were studying in school and what they were celebrating on that Latin Night at Pulse.

Most recently, Lovato and Nick Jonassurprised dozens of employees at Pulse nightclub with VIP tickets to their Orlando tour stop.

Nick Cannon Reveals Details of His Sex Life With Ex-Wife Mariah Carey and How They Make Co-Parenting Work

mariah-carey-1024

Turns out Mariah Carey sets the mood with her own music!

The superstar’s ex Nick Cannon stopped by The Amber Rose Show Friday evening, and when host Amber Rose asked if the former couple ever had sex to any one of Mariah’s smash hits during their six-year marriage, the rapper couldn’t help but share a few intimate details from their time in the bedroom.

“Yes! I have,” Cannon responded, continuing that after the first time he revealed their little secret, Carey “didn’t like the fact that I told the world that we have sex to her music, but it was true!” The 35-year-old added, “Can you imagine having sex with Mariah Carey while Mariah Carey is playing in the back? That is a dream come true. Sorry, Mariah. I said I wasn’t going to say that again.”

And if anyone’s wondering which of her 34 Grammy nominated tracks it was, look no further than to Carey’s 1993 ballad, “Hero.” Amber’s speechless reaction to the candid confession really says it all.

Conversation then turned to the current status of Mariah and Nick’s relationship as the pair have been faced with tackling the art of co-parenting their 5-year-old twins Monroe andMoroccan. Cannon revealed he speaks to Carey every single day, calling her an “amazing” mother.

“When you see these women who have their own industry, their own empire, but they’re the best mothers ever. They put everything else to the side so even if a breakup occurs that doesn’t mean the child should suffer. If anything, the child should be lifted up,” he said.

Nick then discussed how they prioritize their children’s wellbeing over any personal drama, adding, “They got to grow up in this, they didn’t ask for this. Not only do they have to be in the public light, but then they have to deal with unorthodox households. So we just make sure that they’re happy and they understand unconditional love.”

It’s safe to say Nick and Mariah wrote the guidebook to becoming amicable exes.

Steve Aoki Documentary ‘I’ll Sleep When I’m Dead’ Hits Netflix

0

The appropriately titled documentary I’ll Sleep When I’m Dead, which chronicles the crazy busy life of DJ/producer Steve Aoki by offering a firsthand look into his world, debuted at the Tribeca Film Festival last spring to a sold-out audience. Today (Aug. 19), the film is available for viewing worldwide via Netflix.

Justin Krook directed the documentary while David Gelb (both behind Jiro Dreams of Sushi) shares producer credits with Matthew Weaver (Rock of Ages), Happy Walters (The Big Lebowski, Limitless), and Matt Colon.

The film, which shows Aoki as both a superstar on stage and a family man at home in Japan, was three years in the making and filmed during the production of Aoki’s well received Neon Future. And while it follows the rollercoaster that is his career, it also offers insight into the loving yet rocky relationship he has with his father, founder of the restaurant chain Benihana. The story comes full circle with the aid of interviews from family members as well as industry insiders and DJs such as Diplo, Tiesto, will.i.am, and many more.

In support of the release, Aoki will participate in a Facebook Live Q&A on Wednesday, Aug. 24, which will be moderated by Katie Couric. You can tune in here.

And in the meantime, be sure to check out the trailer below.
