Zoe Saldana is still bumping along, hitting up red carpets to promote her latest flick Guardians of the Galaxy. Peep the pics of the mom-to-be and her husband at the Cinema Society's private screening in NYC inside….
Zoe Saldana isn’t letting pregnancy slow her down one bit. Last night, the sci-fi queen hit the red carpet at the Cinema Society with Men's Fitness and FIJI Water special screening of Guardians of the Galaxy at the Crosby Street Hotel in NYC.
The Guardians of the Galaxy starlet kept it cute and comfortable in a black silk dress and black pointed pumps with her hair tousled in loose curls.
Then Zoe, who apparently isn't scared to pop off on media who she blames for "outing" her pregnancy, met up with her husband Marco Perego as they made their way inside the Crosby Street Hotel to watch her in action.
And of course, she treated her fans with a few autographs. A woman's job is never done.
The film hits theaters August 1st.

R. Kelly was bumped from a music festival in Ohio after other performers refused to share the stage with him. Get the deets inside and watch the viral video of Teyana Taylor getting crossed over.
R. Kelly's past is coming back to bite him in the butt...financially. He was recently dropped from the line-up of the Fashion Meets Music Festival in Columbus, Ohio following an outcry about his past allegations of child abuse.
The "12 Play" singer was due to perform last night, but both he and the festival organizers released statements to Columbus Alive to announce his departure.
The organizer said, “Fashion Meets Music Festival and headlining artist R Kelly have come to the mutual decision to cancel Kelly's upcoming performance at the inaugural Fashion Meets Music Festival.”
Meanwhile, a publicist for R. Kelly said: “R Kelly is sorry to disappoint his fans, but looks forward to seeing them in the near future during one of his upcoming tours.”
What happened? First, Folk rock band Saintseneca, who were also due to perform, wrote on their website that they were withdrawing because “we feel [Kelly’s] selection as a performer ignores his very serious allegations of sexual violence and assault”.
Then, local radio station WCBE 90.5 FM also backed out. General manager Dan Mushalko said that due to the opinions of listeners and those of Columbus City Schools (who hold their license), "Obviously, since they represent children and they represent teenagers, they didn’t want us associated with the event if R. Kelly was a part of it...So whether you looked at it from our internal ethics, or the feedback from our listeners and the school district, it came down to everything saying, ‘You just can’t do it.’”
After the story of folks backing out began to gather speed on social media, organizers decided to cut ties with Robert. Of course, R. Kelly was tried and acquitted of child pornography charges in 2008......but we haven't forgotten what we saw on that tape (and neither has anyone else).
In viral news.....
The Teyana Taylor "crossover" is becoming a meme sensation. At the Jordan XX9 First To Fly event in Las Vegas this past weekend, Teyana challenged a player on the court but got crossed over. She trips and falls...semi-off camera. Expect to see the meme and VINE video popping up in your newsfeed for days to come. On the bright side, Teyana’s new album VII is set to drop on October 21st...and now she's got some "buzz."
Watch the "incident" here:

Draya had her hands full while on a grocery run with her son in Cali. While the reality star gets ready for an evening of drinks, Bobbi Kristina is sweating it out in the gym with her husband Nick Gordon. Peep the pics inside…
While on a grocery run in Cali, “BBW L.A.” star Draya made sure to grab some bubbly to have on deck. The reality star was spotted making her way through Gelsons Supermarket with her son Kniko.
Multi-tasking at its best, Draya was deep in conversation on her cell while juggling a bottle of wine and a bottle of champagne to enjoy later.
And before her domestic run....
Shutting down recent break-up rumors, Draya paid a visit to her boo Orlando Scandrick at the Cowboys training camp. Guess that wine was for later that night. These two...
In the midst of the Whitney Houston biopic being filmed, Bobbi Kristina is sweating it out in the gym with her husband Nick Gordon. Since apologizing for her Twitter rant against Angela Bassett over the movie, the slim Bobbi is now channeling her energy into burning some calories.
Bobbi took to her Twitter to thank her trainer for her "ass"ets saying, "Thank you2my Trainor Angie, your thee greatest ! Thanks4getting in my ass everyday & working me to perfection"

Stephen A. Smith was suspended from ESPN's "First Take" this week, but he announced a new gig on SiriusXM in the meantime. Also, get deets on new movie roles for Sherri Shepherd and Jamie Foxx.
For ESPN personality Stephen A. Smith, there's good news AND bad news. GOOD NEWS - He's leaving his ESPN Radio gig to head over to SiriusXM where he'll appear alongside Chris "Mad Dog" Russo on Mad Dog Radio for the 1-3 pm timeslot. BAD NEWS (for him) - He was suspended from ESPN's "First Take." He was not fired, but in television, if you miss a day - you miss a lot.
A statement on the First Take website read,
"ESPN announced today that Stephen A. Smith will not appear on First Take or ESPN Radio for the next week. He will return to ESPN next Wednesday."
The suspension (of sorts) came after Stephen's comments on domestic violence went viral and sparked outrage. On Monday, Stephen apologized for the remarks calling them "the most egregious error of my career."
In other new jobs.......
Now that Sherri Shepherd is saying goodbye to her daily gig as a co-host on "The View", she's in even greater demand as a comedic actress. Well, hopefully.
Her first post-"VIEW" gig will be alongside Ice Cube and Kevin Hart in Ride Along 2. Tim Story is set to direct again and "The Hangover" star Ken Jeong and"Newsroom" star Olivia Munn have also joined the cast. They're aiming for a January 15, 2016 release and Ice Cube and Will Packer have signed on as producers.
This is Sherri's last week on "The View" but fans will see soon in Chris Rock’s upcoming film Top Five. The movie is set to debut at the Toronto Film Fest (Sept 4-14).
In other movie announcements...
Oscar-winner Jamie Foxx (shown playing a boxing character on "In Living Color") will likely play Mike Tyson in an upcoming biopic. While the movie is still in the infancy stage, Mike is very excited about the project.
Speaking to ABC NEWS, Mike (pictured above at Comic-Con clowning around with the brand new Beats by Dre Pill XL speakers), says he's met with Oscar-winning actor Jamie Foxx about collaborating on a project:
We'll keep you posted as more deets about the project are revealed.

The rap game just isn’t what it use to be. French Montana just released the visuals to his track “R&B B*tches” featuring Fabolous and Wale. Meanwhile, Chris Brown's new neighbors are not happy about the singer's recent move. And they aren't holding back any feelings about it...hurling threats and all...allegedly. Peep the video and find out what they said inside…
French Montana has a dream. And it’s screwing every R&B chick in the game. At least he's more specific than Lil Wayne's "Every Girl In the World". As lame and misogynistic as it is...
Oddly, these chicks are the complete opposite of his current main chick (besides his wife) Khloe Kardashian.
As he gears up to release his sophomore album Mac & Cheese 4, Frenchie dropped the visuals to his new Eif Rivera-directed video for his latest single, “R&B Bitches” featuring Fabolous and Wale. While sailing the ocean in a yacht, the Coke Boy runs down his list of R&B chicks he would like to get it in with including Rihanna, Kelly Rowland, Mary J. Blige and…Ashanti, who made a cameo in the video.
Fabolous chimes in with his dream list including Christina Milian, Christina Aguilera and Kelly Clarkson, while Wale dreams of hopping in the bed with Erykah Badu, Tamar Braxton and new R&B sensation Tinashe.
And in another new video...
Since taking shots at Kim Kardashian and Kanye West on his controversial track “I Hit It First,” Ray J is back to singing about is personal life. He’s sliding back on the music scene with his brand new track “Never Shoulda Did That.”
The single will be featured on his upcoming mixtape Ray J: Uncut 2, which will be available for fans in August…for free.
We feelin' it?
And in other R&B news...
Seems the word on the street that Chris Brown is allegedly a lousy neighbor travels fast! After all of the drama surrounding Breezy and his old neighbors in West Hollywood, looks like his new neighbors are going to be even worse.
Breezy is currently renting an 8,000 square foot luxe bachelor pad in San Fernando Valley, complete with six bedrooms, a dance studio, a commercial ice cream bar and tennis court. With the new house, comes new neighbors. And they are NOT feeling CB.
TMZ spoke with one of the “Loyal” singer’s neighbors about their new resident and he/she got straight to the point, spewing physical threats towards Chris if he ever thought about setting foot on his property. He/she allegedly said "It can be the devil. I can care less. I don't care if they're having orgies. It can even be Saddam Hussein for all I care, as long as he doesn't trespass onto my property. If he does, I shoot him."
Luckily, the R&B bad boy just copped himself $3 million worth of security…two Chinese Tibetan mastiffs. Hope they can stop bullets.

Floyd Mayweather showered his new chick Doralie "Bad" Medina with a photo gallery, a birthday message, several watches and more for her birthday this week. But the message had some indirect shade thrown at his ex Miss Jackson. Check it inside, plus what Nelly had to say about Floyd....
For girlfriend Doralie Medina's birthday dinner over the weekend, Floyd had desserts, jewelry and a Bugatti waiting for his chick:
But it was the below message below, accompanied with a photo gallery of pics of the twosome, that Floyd posted that had folks like, DAMN:
5 years? He just broke up with Miss Jackson 1 year ago. Given, she COULD have JUST been the "massage therapist and friend" the four year prior. But knowing Floyd...
Meanwhile, now that Miss Jackson is with Nelly, folks have been trying to get his take on the beef between him and Floyd:
So Nelly went on ESPN this week and answered a few questions. The sports fan talked about everything from the "Tip Drill" video to Floyd's education level.
On which celebs asked to be edited out of the "Tip Dril" video but thoroughly enjoyed the shoot
"I am not Jose Conseco. I am not saying. There were a whole lot of people who weren't edited in. I don't think it was for tv purposes, it was for at-home purposes."
On the beef between Nelly and Floyd
"I don't have a beef with Floyd Mayweather. For me, for the most part, I think the whole thing is misunderstood. I try to understand where he's coming from which is a little hard to do. He's one of those people who don't like the word No said to him. And if anybody does that, it gets under his skin a little bit. I don't know. It's kind of hard talking to someone who hasn't graduated High School."
On the craziest experience with a fan
"I had a woman drive all the way from Houston, TX to my front door with a 14-year-old, swearing up and down he was my son."

Tracee Ellis Ross is serving up some Diana Ross tease for the August 2014 cover of UPSCALE magazine. Peep her fab cover and find out what she had to say about being black, loving her body at the age of 41 and more inside…
Actress Tracee Ellis Ross is gracing the cover of UPSCALE magazine’s August 2014 issue with all of her beauty. And we are so loving that face and her curls!
Tracee is starring in a new comedy series coming to ABC (September 24th) titled, “Black-ish,” where she plays a mother-of-four named Rainbow Johnson. Tracee's character is the wife to Anthony Anderson’s character and the two of them are searching to find a sense of cultural identity while raising their kids in a predominantly white, upper-middle-class neighborhood. The show is scripted by Kenya Barris and produced by Laurence Fishburne’s (who is also starring in the sitcom) Cinema Gypsy production company.
So in the new issue of UPSCALE, the “Black-ish” star dished on what it means to be black, how she thinks people will react to the new comedy sitcom, keeping her booty rotund at the age of 41 (which she's doing a damn good job at) and more.
Here are the highlights:
Check out a clip from the pilot episode of “Black-ish” below:
The show premieres on Wednesday, September 24th at 9:30/8:30c on ABC. We'll be watching!

Last night, Young Jeezy celebrated his son Jadarius Jenkins’ 18th birthday in Atlanta. And fellow ATL rapper T.I. came out for the festivities. Peep the party pics inside….
Taking a break from trekking the nation on his Under the Influence Tour with Wiz Khalifa, Young Jeezy threw a lavish dinner party with family and friends for his son Jaradrius’ 18th birthday at Gio’s in Atlanta last night.
Good friend of Jeezy’s and fellow rapper T.I. was also in attendance. We hear Tiny was also there but she somehow steered clear of any pictures.
Looks like everything is good between Jeezy and his son now. You’ll recall, the "Seen It All" rapper was arrested earlier this year for allegedly serving his son with a brutal beat down and threatening to kill him. He was charged with battery, terroristic threats and false imprisonment. Guess they hashed things out. Nice cars and fancy parties always seem to do the trick....
Like most 18-year-olds, Jadarius had a chick on his arm. Looks like he’s down with the swirl.
And his pops posed it up with one of the kiddies at the party.
After dinner, Jeezy gifted his son with a brand new ride, complete with a big red bow:
Must be nice. Happy Birthday Jadarius!
Tonight, Jeezy hits the Molson Canadian Amphitheatre in Toronto.
