Cutie Mack Wilds performed on “Good Morning America” for the first time and Keyshia Cole released the full track to her single with Juciy J, “Rick James.” Check out Mack’s performance and take a listen to Keyshia’s new music inside…
Singer/actor Tristan "Mack" Wilds took the stage this morning on ABC’s "Good Morning America" for his national morning television debut.
The Grammy nominated singer rocked the stage as he serenaded the ladies with his hit single “Own It” in Times Square. “Own It” is the lead single from his debut album, New York: A Love Story.
Check out Mack’s performance below:
The former “90210” & "The Wire" cutie will hit the road tomorrow to kick off his 9-city tour, beginning in Las Vegas at Haze Nightclub and ending in June at the 100 Black Men Youth Party in Hollywood, Florida.
Below are the dates for Mack’s upcoming tour:
British supermodel Jourdan Dunn also joined Mack on "GMA" this morning. The "Yonce” model talked about her third season of her online cooking show, "Well Done With Jourdan Dunn," featured on Jay Z’s Life+Times website.
And in other music news...
Keyshia Cole released her new track “Rick James” featuring Juicy J from her sixth studio album.
Over the weekend, Keyshia Cole dropped two cover art photos for "Rick James,” showing off her shoes from her Steve Madden collection. And a few days ago, she released a preview of another single titled, “Boss A$$ B*tch” on her Instagram.
When asked on Twitter if the theme of her new album would be male bashing she said, “Sadly sorta.” Well....her husband did embarrass her with a stripper so it makes sense...
Check out Keyshia’s track “Rick James” below in full:
Are we feelin' it?

Lee Daniels met with his A-list team of actors from the new FOX series "Empire" yesterday. See pics of Oscar nominees Terrence Howard, Gabourey Sidibe, and fab chick Taraji P. Henson inside....
Oscar-nominated director Lee Daniels was spotted on the Chicago-based set of his latest tv project "Empire" recently. A few weeks ago, we told you about the new FOX series which is billed as a music-heavy family drama set in the world of hip hop. Lee has definitely lined up some A-list talent including Taraji P. Henson, his Precious star Gabourey Sidibe, Jussie Smollett, Malik Yoba and Macy Gray (not pictured).
And the cast has already kicked things off with a big table read of the script.
During their table read, the cast also celebrated the 45th birthday of her former Hustle & Flow co-star Terrence Howard who plays the series' lead character Lucious Lyon. Taraji, who will play Cookie Lyon, said, "Happy birthday to my boo!!!! #TerrenceHoward #Empire is going to be #EPIC!!!!!!!! So glad to be working with this talented man again!!!!!"
Taraji and Gabby are already hitting it off and becoming friends. She tweeted, "Me and my bish!!!! @gabby2shabby #Empire It's going DOWN!!!!!! I adore her!!!!!! #talentedAShelll"
"EMPIRE" will also feature original music with Timbaland on board as a songwriter/music producer. It premieres on FOX later this year.

The premiere for the soon-to-be box office hit Divergent went down last night in Hollywood. Check out stars Zoe Kravitz and Mekhi Phifer and more on their big night inside...
Zoe Kravitz and Mekhi Phifer are starring in what's expected to be the next HUGE box office trilogy Divergent. Much like its fellow novel-to-big screen flick Hunger Games, there's a huge following. So tons of fans turned out for the big premiere last night at the Regency Bruin Theatre.
ASOS cover girl Zoe Kravitz kept it girly and cute in a white flirty dress and blush satin sandals.
Zoe's mom Lisa Bonet showed up looking like her usual hippie self...
And she brought her husband/Road To Paloma co-star Jason Momoa along as well.
Divergent star Mekhi Phifer hit the carpet with his wife Reshelet Barnes. But she wasn't the only woman in Mekhi's life there to celebrate his big night:
He brought moms along too. Cute!
A$AP Rocky, who is featured on the movie's soundtrack with his song "In Distress", hit the carpet sans his model girlfriend Chanel Iman.
And Jaden Smith, who's no stranger to sci-fi flicks himself, hit the carpet to support the movie. This whole outfit...
Divergent opens this Friday, March 21st.

Love is (still) in the air for Ludacris and girlfriend Eudoxiee! The twosome appear to have moved to Miami after finishing the decor on a new home. And is Eudoxiee also hinting that an engagement went down?
After posting a cutesy pic of her and her man Ludacris last night, Eudoxiee hinted that the twosome are beginning a "new chapter" of their lives saying:
She confirmed via social media she now lives in Miami. So...either they've purchased/rented a home together, got engaged, or both.
Eudoxiee has been talking about "living the Miami life" for the last week or so. And she posted a pic of her newly decorated home (above) saying:
And while Luda's cousin and Eudoxiee's friend Monica Brown had nothing but love for the two:
There's always that one person who comes with the shade about his cheating ways, or should we say "his having a baby on their fake break":
Bloop. But Eudoxiee didn't hold her tongue with the response:
The twosome have been eating good and living it up in the M-I-A for a while now, so it looks like they're moving on VERY much together, despite the side baby. And despite the financial woes Luda claims he has when it comes to paying child support for his new baby.
1. Lamar Odom has supposeldy told In Touch Weekly that he now wants to make it work with ex-wife Khloe Kardashian. STORY

Rapper/Pastor Mase is giving his marriage to Twyla Betha a second chance. In the name of Jesus. More inside....
Parishioners and fans were shocked to learn that Mason Betha aka Mase filed to divorce his wife of 12 years, Twyla Betha in January. In the original divorce filing, he requested full custody of their kids AND wanted spousal support! But it seems the two are giving their marriage a second chance.
TMZ reports that Mase withdrew his divorce petition the day before Valentine's Day and now wants to work it out.
While folks get divorced all the time, Mase's situation was shocking because he and Twyla co-authored a book series called "What Do You Do After I Do?" (Mason and Twyla Betha share keys to build a marriage that will last a lifetime) and co-pastored the El Elyon International Church for several years.
It looks like the two pastors are in a better space now...and we're happy that they're working on their marriage.
Still can't believe Mase is somebody's Pastor....

This YBF chick is all about her fitness...and building her own empire. Guess who flossed her cakes last night in L.A. inside!
Who's whipped her ASSets and legs into killer shape recently?
Hottie Angela Simmons!
On the streets of L.A. last night, she did an impromptu photoshoot...probably after seeing just how great she looked in the fitted mini dress and heels.
Angela's been going pretty hard lately with her fitness journey she constantly shares with fans, and she's pushing her new IAM fashion website to put her eye for style to great use.

New parents Eva Marcille and Kevin McCall took a break from baby duty to have a dinner & show date...with "Basketball Wives: LA" star Sundy Carter. Check the pics inside...
We're unclear about the friendship between Eva and Sundy, but even though Sundy has a history of having babies by VERY taken men, it seems Eva is unfazed by it. Because she and her man were in full throttle Monday night supporting Sundy at Philippe Chow's in L.A. at her party for the new episode of the show.
"Top Model" chick Eva, in a hot jumpsuit, and rapper/singer Kevin looked cute arriving to the restaurant Monday night, sans baby Marley.
Sundy rolled up to her event in a sexy black pencil skirt and mixed print sweatshirt by Peter Pilotto for Target for a cute look.
Eva's looking absolutely fab post baby. Fun times!
BONUS: Sundy and Eva also hit up another event together a few days ago:

It's no secret rapper Big Sean is a fan of T & A. So has his "Glee" star of a fiancee given him even more toys to play with? Check the pics that are sparking boob job rumors inside...
Oh, hi Naya's boobs. The actress and "Sorry Not Sorry" singer posted the above pic today after a day on the beach with her husband-to-be Big Sean. And those floatation devices are looking extra new.
But are they?
Sean was fully dressed and posed it up with Naya's younger brother Mychal. And the "Clique" rapper seemed to love what he saw.
Lots of commenters on Naya's pic called her out for clearly getting an enhancement done.
But Naya flosses her chi chis often, in pics as recent as the last couple months:
But when she covers them up, like several months ago, they seem to be a different size:
Not sure when she would have had time to have the procedure and recover...seeing that's she's been out about about very often these last couple months. But who knows...

“BBWLA” star Ariane’s ex-fiance has a new fiancée! NBA star DeShawn Stevenson popped the question to his girlfriend Jessica. Read the deets inside…
In his socks, sandals and a white tee, former Atlanta Hawks player DeShawn Stevenson popped the big question to his girlfriend of four years Jessica Marie over the weekend.
Jessica took to her instagram and shared,” All I could say was yes....#4years #MyFiance' #MyLove #MyFuture #Us #Together #forLife”.
The twosome appeared to be at a waterfront setting, with the bride-to-be well prepared in a white dress.
The bride-to-be, who is a fitness guru, proudly showed off her 7-carat rock...and that ghastly hand tatt...and seems over the moon that they are about to become one.
His ex/baby mama Ariane Williams will probably have plenty to say. She was once engaged to him, had two of his children and then they ended up calling it all off.
Ariane was real extra in the first episode of this season when she confronted Draya about sleeping with Deshawn years ago while she was in a relationship with him. She mentioned he had a fiancée on the show, but DeShawn seems to have just made it official this past weekend.
Wonder how Jessi's going to act now that she knows it's real.
Congrats to the couple!

Jamie Foxx, Trey Songz, Kelly Rowland, L.L. Cool J and a few others hit Miami Gardens for their annual jazz festival. Check out the pics inside…
The City of Miami held its 9th Annual Jazz in the Gardens festival last weekend and a few of our YBF faves took the stage.
L.L. Cool J, Jamie Foxx, Trey Songz, Kelly Rowland, Doug E. Fresh and Maze featuring Frankie Beverly performed at the Sun Life Stadium in front of a packed audience.
A day after Kelly and her fiancé Tim Witherspoon were spotted on the beach in Miami, she rocked the stage looking her usual fabulous self. Get it Kelly!
But the most interesting performance was by Jamie Foxx…
Looks like he called a fan on stage and she showed him exactly what she was working with...on all fours and all.
Trey Songz and his Calvin Klein boxers sexed up the stage.
Legendary band Maze featuring Frankie Beverly tore down the stage.
Hip-Hop legend Doug E. Fresh took the stage and shared with the audience that he is currently working with the White House and our First Lady Michelle Obama on the Partnership for a Healthier America Summit. He then performed an impromptu beatboxing rap about the Obamas.
Engaged couple Gabrielle Union and Dwyane Wade extended their engagement celebration enjoying the festivities.
And LL Cool J hit the stage...and had roses thrown at him.

R&B & Pop divas Ashanti and Mariah Carey posted new bikini pics for their "lucky" fans celebrating St. Patrick's Day. More inside....
Braveheart songstress Ashanti took a dip in the waters of Malibu, California this week. And um, that body though. Ashanti is on a mission to MAKE everyone pay attention.
As her latest album continues to rack up impressive sale numbers, Ashanti showed off her toned bod in an alluring two-piece bikini. She said, "'Soaking up this Cali Sun... #Malibu #braveheart', before adding on another, 'Be U. #BeBrave #braveheart #malibu.'
During an exclusive chat with TheYBF.com, Ashanti explained why she chose to release Braveheart independently on her own Written Entertainment imprint saying, "To be completely honest, I couldn't fathom the idea of a 360 deal. I walked away from 7 offers from majors. At the time, the ink was over here. And it was just me. But this time, I get to be the Captain of the ship. Regardless of whatever happens, I'm happy about the music."
Looks like it worked out just fine for her. She could sell her workout routines and maybe a workout DVD or two and make some extra coins...
Another bikini pinup....
Mariah Carey celebrated the luck of the Irish by pasting a shamrock on her boobs.
While Mimi was busy going "green" on a yacht at some undisclosed exotic location, the lobby of her Tribeca building was full of St. Patrick's Day balloons that had been delivered yesterday for her penthouse. We're sure the doorman felt "lucky" having to carry all those arrangements upstairs...

We told you earlier this month that Lil Mo had split from her gospel-singing husband Phillip Bryant and moved on with her new boy toy from Philly.
