SHE MAD OR NAH?: K. Michelle SHADES Elle Varner…Over Meek Mill?!

Posted: 30 Jun 2014 08:23 AM PDT

Well what do we have here? Seems like K. Michelle is throwing some subliminal shade at singer Elle Varner. And it looks like it could be over rapper Meek Mill. Chile...tea inside…

“Love & Hip Hop” star K. Michelle is known for speaking her mind and throwing shade when she feels the need. And it seems she was a little pissed after peeping pics of her “former” friend Elle Varner and Philly rapper Meek Mill.

Now why is K mad? We’re not entirely sure. But we believe it’s over a picture posted of Elle with her arms wrapped around Meek’s neck, which they both posted to their respective Instagram accounts.

On Saturday, Meek and Elle attended a private dinner at Mr. Chow to celebrate Russelll Simmons and Steve Rifkind’s launching of their new music label, All Def Music (ADM). The two snapped a pic (above) and Meek posted it to his IG with the caption, “#nocurvezone @ellevarner.” Elle also posted the picture with the caption, “R/P @meekmill #nocurvezone [heart emoji]”

Apparently, a few months back Meek and Elle had a little run-in with one another where Meek tried to “holla” at the “Cold Case” singer and she “curved” him. Meaning…she played him. She went on Twitter saying she gets awkward when it comes to guys trying to talk to her tweeting, “I’m so awkward I accidentally curved Meek Mill once lol”

Meek later hopped on Twitter and dismissed Elle’s comment tweeting, “She said she curved me I don’t remember… Lol” That explains why the MMG rapper captioned the picture "#nocurvezone."

K. Michelle must was feeling some type of way and got caught up in her feelings about the picture because she hopped on Instagram and posted this message (which has since been deleted):

REFILL? Y’all know that’s Elle’s hit track. But why is she mad? Did she date Meek? Hmm…

And why is she throwing subliminal shade at Elle? Especially since she said Elle were once close friends. Close enough for her to call Elle her sister and give her a special shout-out on her birthday, gushing on how she will always have her support and loyalty.

Check it below:
 

"Happy Bday to my sister my friend @ellevarner Thanks for having my back and being such a beautiful soul. I don't trust a lot of people anymore, but you my dear will always have my support and loyalty! Enjoy your Bday. Love ya"

 

Is K mad that her "sister" is pushing up on her "man" or former flame? So many questions...not enough answers.

DADDY'S GIRL: Rihanna SKIPS The BET AWARDS For Intimate EVENING With Her Dad

Posted: 30 Jun 2014 06:57 AM PDT

 photo rihsssddng55.png

Rihanna was spotted in the LA area last night.....but not where you'd think.  Find out why she skipped the 2014 BET Awards  inside...

 photo baldicurls1.jpg

If you watched the 2014 BET Awards last night you might have picked up on some noticeable absences. Rihanna, one of the biggest pop stars in the world, was not in the audience. Why? 

 photo baldicurls2.jpg

Rihanna skipped the awards for a quiet evening with her dad Ronald Fenty in Santa Monica.  If you're wondering how the fashion icon dressed for her date with Dad, she selected a Mexico soccer jacket, sensible flats, a long black dress and wore her hair in curls. 

 photo baldigb4.jpg

The pair shared an intimate embrace after dinner, showing the close bond they've maintained over the years.

 photo baldigb3.jpg 

On the music front, Rihanna was spotted leaving the same West Hollywood studio as Kanye West a few days ago.  We suspect the "Run This Town" duo are working on something new.

GIRL......REALLY? Bobbi Kris CALLS Angela Bassett The "B" Word, BLAST Her Over Planned "Whitney Houston" Biopic

Posted: 30 Jun 2014 06:00 AM PDT

 photo BrADzSHIUAA3x2V.jpg

Bobbi Kristina got all up in her feelings over the weekend and called Oscar-nominated actress Angela Bassett the "B" word....and a made a few other insinuations.  See her outrageous tweets and find out what set her off inside.....

A few days ago, we told you about LIFETIME's planned Whitney Houston bio pic and how UNHAPPY the Houston family was about the made-for-tv film.  Recently, Academy Award nominee Angela Bassett, who's been tapped to direct the film, talked to EW about the film and mentioned why she never gave a second thought to casting Bobbi Kristina in the lead role. She told the mag,

No, I did not think about that. I did not think about casting her. And probably for a number of reasons, you know. One being that she’s not an actress. I know she’s acted here and there. I know she’s been on their family’s reality show, but she’s not an actress and acting is a craft. It’s an attempt to illuminate the complexities of human behavior and life. And this is a very fast-paced schedule; we have just 21 days to tell this story. It’s more than just saying lines and turning the light on. You have to drive the story—there’s a technical aspect.

Well.....someone must have dropped that EW issue off at Bobbi Kris's front door and got her all stirred up. She got on Twitter (the Tweets have been deleted)  and called Angela the "B" and questioned her womanly virtues.

Bobbi Kris's disrespectful words have been met with silence from both LIFETIME and Angela Bassett. What do you think?  Does Bobbi K have a right to be pissed?

They're baaaack.  At least on the 2014 BET Awards stage.  Check out Silk, Troop and Color Me Badd making a surprise appearance inside...

This is one of the moments that made watching this Awards show totally worth it.  BET brought us back to the late 80's and early 90's with "Sex You Up", "Freak Me", and "All I Do".  We got our ENTIRE life with these.  How about you?

Next tie, hopefully we'll get the lady groups of the 90's....

BONUS: Speaking of soulful crooners, Robin Thicke was still pining away for his wife Paula Patton last night. Check out his performance of "Forever Love" below:

 

Somebody please go tap Paula Patton on her shoulder and ask her how much longer she plans to wait, i.e. how much longer will we be listening these begging songs. Not mad at his love for her though.

Giving off a street/urban vibe, according to the wprds SHE used to describe it, the “Zapped” star wore a blue and black Emanuel Ungaro number.  Can’t say we’re feeling this look.  At all.  But she's 17...now's the time to take those risks boo.

Tiny hit the carpet solo (although her husband T.I. was there and performed) and sans her wedding ring.  She rocked a custom piece from a Filipino designer whom she mentioned on the carpet, yet we couldn't understand what/whom she said.

4 Letter Word/Music Matters singer Elle Varner hit the carpet in comfortable look right after coming off the BET Experience stage. She rocked a pair of blue parachute trousers with a black bustier and black blazer. The singer recently coined her style as “trap jazz” saying,

“It’s the product of a girl who grew up listening to Ying Yang Twins and Ella Fitzgerald,” she said. “I like to keep the beat rocking, but I have those jazzy vocals. I can’t get away from that.”

And she gushed on twitter about Lionel Richie giving her words of encourageent at the Awards.

Karrueche Tran hit the red carpet at the 2014 BET Awards as the BET Digital Live Stream host at the Nokia Theatre in L.A., which streamed live online. She interviewed celeb guests as they made their way down the red carpet joining hosts Bow Wow (who know goes by Shad Moss), Keshia Chante, Adrienne Bailon and style expert Lloyd Boston.

Kae rocked a shredded custom designed dress and we’re not too sure if we’re feeling her look.  Actually, we know we're not.

Former “My Wife And Kids” actress Jennifer Freeman hit the carpet in a new EXTRA blonde ‘do and a pink Michael Costello couture gown. She was almost unrecognizable.

“RHOA” star Kenya Moore hit the red carpet in all of her "Gone With The Wind" fabulousness. Ms. Twirl rocked an orange floor-length Victoria Beckham gown.

“Love That Girl” star Tatyana Ali and her twins hit the carpet in a red Walter Mendez gown. Chick was trying to keep cool in all of that heat.  Not mad at it.
