Meagan Good, Mary J. Blige and Jaden Smith were each spotted making moves yesterday. Find out what they were up to inside.....
Yesterday, photographers spotted a cute and casual Meagan Good arriving at LAX.
Meagan starred in this summer's blockbuster Think Like A Man 2, and next, we'll see her starring alongside Virgina Madsen in the made-for-tv film Babylon Fields.
Also...the hottie just completed a photoshoot for ATTRACT Magazine. Check out her sexy BTS footage above.
Elsewhere in LA......
Mary J Blige, dressed in white, was spotted carrying her Louis Vuitton luggage into Jimmy Kimmel studios in Hollywood.
And in case you missed it, Mary lent her voice to a new collabo, "Being With You", a remake taken from Smokey Robinson's new duets album, Smokey & Friends (August 19th).
In New York...
Jaden Smith was seen arriving at JFK airport....with a scooter/suitcase. He would be the one to have something like this....
Though we've seen a lot of Jaden in pictures (with his famous friends), he is gearing up for a return to the silver screen when The Karate Kid 2 begins filming later this year.

Kerry's back on the set! Or should we say...Olivia Pope & Associates are back to fixing problems. Check out the working mom doing what she does best inside...
Kery Washington filmed scenes for her hit TV show 'Scandal' in downtown Los Angeles yesterday. Almost 4 months after delivering baby girl Isabelle, the gorgeous Kerry is back in full swing at work....and in one of those coats we always drool over while watching the show.
Even though she left little Isabella and her husband Nnamdi Asomugha at home, she brought the cuteness that his her other baby girl....pup Josie along for the work day:
She's looking fabulous these days.
Last week, Kerry dished to talk show Jimmy Kimmel about naming her baby girl after her grandmother...and why frozen candies were her fave things while pregnant.
"Scandal" Season 4 returns September 25th at a new time -- 9p EST.

Timing is everything...and Nicole Murphy's announcement of her split from Michael Strahan (around the same time of his Hall Of Fame speech) seems to suggest that she had an axe to grind. More inside....
Did Nicole Murphy announce her split from Michael Strahan as an act of retaliation? While sources close to Nicole shoot down the "retaliation" claims, they did confirm to TMZ that Nicole recently received confirmation of Michael's infidelity. And the timing is purely coincidental, allegedly.
Reportedly, back in July, she had a hunch that there was another woman. But right before Michael headed to Ohio....she supposedly felt she knew the cheating was a fact.
Hmm....we're imagining how that scenario played out. Did she get a phone call from the other woman? Are there pics that will soon come out?
Issues of infidelity have often followed the couple. They broke up briefly in 2012 amid rumors of Nicole having an affair with musician London Taylor. Elsewhere, Page Six claims that the couple split because of Nicole's alleged opposition to a prenup. A source told the column, "Nicole was unwilling to sign a prenup, even though Michael has consistently been very generous to her.” Something tells us Nicole is not going to go away quietly. And we bet this will all play out on "Hollywood Exes."

Lil Kim has hopped on Beyonce’s “***Flawless” Remix with Nicki Minaj and threw a few shots at the "Anaconda" rapper. Take a listen inside…
Seems Lil Kim caught some feelings after hearing Beyonce’s “***Flawless” remix with Nicki Minaj. So she hit up the studio to drop a few bars, coming for the “Anaconda” rapper.
The Queen Bee (who just had her daughter Royal Regin in June) is looking to take her spot on the throne as the “Queen of Rap” after Nicki spit a few bars on the original track, claiming SHE was the Queen.
On Kimmy’s version, she spits
And if you take a closer look at the cover art Kim posted to her Instagram, she replaced Nicki’s photos with her own and snatched her name off of the cover.
The female rap game is definitely taking a turn. Wonder if Remy Ma will hop on the track next.
Take a listen for yourself below. Kim’s verse comes in at the 3:13 mark:
Did she kill it or nah?

Rihanna serves up some green wiggery for her brand new MAC Cosmetics Viva Glam editorial. Meanwhile, Chrisette Michele is having second thoughts about reality TV. Peep Rih’s gorgeous cover and find out what has Chrisette upset inside…
Make-up mavens get excited! The fearless one has a brand new shot for MAC Cosmestics Viva Glam ad. And we’re totally green with envy.
For her second collaboration with MAC Cosmetics, Rihanna got uber glam in all of her green wiggery for the launch of her new limited-edition lipstick and lipgloss line. And it will be available globally this September, just in time for fall. We’re sure her new color will sell out just as fast as her first red lippie, RiRiWoo.
This time around, Rih is offering up a bold, frosted metallic mauve lipstick and cool mauve with red frost lipgloss.
Rih took to Twitter to share her excitement:
In an effort to help fight the HIV/ADIS epidemic, all sales from her Rihanna 2 line will be donated to charities that help men, women and children living with and affected by HIV/AIDS. Nice!
And in reality TV news....
Soul singer Chrisette Michele seems to be having second thoughts about starring on TVOne’s reality hit series, “R&B Divas: LA”
By now, anyone entering into the reality TV world knows it comes with a lot of negative backlash, no matter how “good” you try to appear on screen. The Better singer took to her Instagram to voice her thoughts on making a “mistake” by appearing on the show. In her letter (which she has already deleted), Chrisette reveals she just wanted to show her fans who she is outside of her music but instead she's having to deal with a slew of evil tweets and hateful phone calls.
So we can likely count her out on appearing on the next season. Guess she had to learn the hard way that it all comes with the territory.

In today's party report, Joseline, Stevie J and Blac Chyna hosted a club night together while Kandi celebrated Todd Tucker's birthday with their ATL friends. More inside....
Somewhere in Atlanta.....
Joseline Hernandez stepped out of the house looking like this...and nobody stopped her.
Do you remember the time on LAHH ATL when Joseline told Steebie "I don't need no stylist!"
Maybe Steebie had second thoughts....
Was this the face he made after he got a good look at Joseline?
Joseline and Stevie co-hosted the party at Velvet Room with Blac Chyna (we see she's been perfecting her Kim K poses).
Stevie poured a few drinks out for his fans.
Also in the ATL.....
Todd Tucker has been celebrating his birthday all weekend.
Last night, he and Kandi partied Aroma Lounge. Hmm...we wonder if he drove up in the new Corvette she bought him?
LAHH ATL stars Kirk and Rasheeda celebrated with Kandi and Todd.
Tami, the wife of Waka Flocka and a fellow "LAHH ATL" castmember, partied with Kandi and Todd.
Kandi's RHOA co-star Porsha Williams was there rocking her Naked Hair.
Kandi's bff Toya was also spotted at the party.

NFL star turned TV host Michael Strahan is gracing the newest cover of Men’s Fitness magazine. Plus, there are rumors circulating that his now ex-fiancée Nicole Murphy may have tried to sabotage the biggest moment in his career. More inside…
Newly inducted NFL Hall of Famer Michael Strahan is currently on a career high right now. Despite the shortcomings in his love life, he recently celebrated becoming one of the newest inductees for the Pro Football Hall of Fame after his 15-year career in the NFL (he played for the New York Giants).
The 42-year-old former defensive lineman turned "Live with Kelly & Michael" television host is now gracing the cover of Men’s Fitness magazine’s September 2014 issue, showing off his signature gap and toned physique. And we're loving it.
In the cover story, the new “GMA” co-host talked about keeping in shape while juggling his many jobs, the evolution of football and how he’s handling having to wear so many different hats in one day. Along with his daytime gigs, he's also a football analyst on Fox NFL Sunday. He has definitely been putting in work since he left the NFL.
You would think having to work so much, one couldn't possibly have time to workout. But not Michael. He revealed he actually feels in better shape now then he did when he was playing ball. He said,
When asked about his weight he said,
And it sure looks good too. Michael's issue hits stands August 4th.
And in his personal life...
It may have seemed like a coincidence when news broke that Michael Strahan and his “Hollywood Exes” star fiancée Nicole Murphy called it quits the day before he was to be inducted into the NFL Hall of Fame.
But now, sources are telling TMZ that Nicole, or possibly someone in her camp, could have been trying to sabotage the biggest moment of his career. It’s alleged Michael didn’t have a clue that their break-up announcement would be released at the same time he would be accepting his momentous accolade.
We hear the two called off their 5-year engagement several weeks ago, but it was not known when they would reveal their un-coupling with the world. Unfortunately for Michael, during the presentation of him receiving his Hall of Fame gold jacket, reports were being published about their break-up.
Now...people in Michael’s camp believe the timing was very calculated and Nicole, or someone close to her, was trying to ruin his big day.
Turns out, Michael didn’t let any of that distract him from his big day. During his speech, he credited this past weekend as being "the best weekend of my life."

“Oh my gosh look at butt…” That’s what Nicki Minaj had every one saying once she released the cover art for her single “Anaconda.” And now… the full song has dropped. Take a listen to her newly released track and find out what Nicki revealed about working with Beyonce in the studio and more when you go inside…
After setting the Internet on fire with her bootylicious cover art last week, Nicki Minaj’s “Anaconda” has finally dropped. And the “Pills N Potions” rapper is currently in the midst of promoting her newly released track, calling into radio stations across the nation.
This morning, Nicki called up Hot 97’s “Ebro In The Morning” show to debut her new track “Anacaonda” and during the interview, she dished on another brand new track: “***Flawless” Remix with Beyonce.
As you know, Queen B and Nicki M. hopped on Yonce’s “***Flawless” remix but what you didn’t know is that the two divas actually worked in the studio together to create the track. The “Anaconda” rapstress said Bey’s people hit her up about two months ago, asking her to do a feature on the song. And to her surprise, Mrs. Carter made a stop by the studio to lay down her verse with Nicki.
The Queens raptress also addressed working on a track with newly released Bronx raptress Remy Ma. She said,
Well there you have it.
She also called into “Ryan Seacrest In The Morning” and chopped it up with Ryan and Nicole Richie. Take a listen to that interview below:
Now on to the audio…
Nicki Minaj is going old-school with her new track “Anaconda” using a sample from Sir Mix-A-Lot's classic hit "Baby Got Back." That explains her booty-full cover art.
Along with her recently released track, Nicki dropped a quick snippet of the visuals for the single and again, her rump is the primary focus as she makes it clap…for the Vine. Ha!
The track opens with:

Beyonce and Jay Z hopped on their private jet and trekked it to Pasadena for their “On The Run” tour stop, bringing out celeb guests Kelly Rowland, Amber Rose, Miguel, Rocsi Diaz and more. Plus, check out a snippet of Bey & Jay perform “Drunk In Love” for her HBO special “Beyonce: X10” inside…
Over the weekend, The Carters jetted to Pasadena to take the stage at the Rose Bowl stadium for their joint “On The Run” tour stop. But before slaying the stage, Mrs. Carter shared a few pics of herself posing it up in front of their private jet. The fashionista donned a Topshop cropped tee along with a pair of Sophia Webster Queen Bee Ellen Heels and some dope RVS X A-Morir “Paris II” Extreme Cat Eye Sunglasses. Hot.
Hov was spotted backstage in his Trapstar snapback before making his grand entrance on stage last night.
Mom-to-be Kelly Rowland was spotted with her husband Tim Witherspoon leaving the stadium after watching her bestie rock the stage with her husband. Since letting the cat out of the bag that she's expecting a baby boy, the fab first-time mom revealed the best advice she has received since entering motherhood. She shared,
Another new mom on the scene last night…"School Dance" star Amber Rose. Wiz Khalifa’s wife got in some “me time” as she made her way into the Rose Bowl stadium for the show.
She posted a pretty selfie with the caption, "On The Run"
Singer Miguel and his girlfriend Nazanin Mandi walked hand-in-hand as they made their way inside the show. Well don't they look happy.
“ET” correspondent Rocsi Diaz threw up the peace sign as she walked inside the venue.
And after the show, she bumped into the gorgeous Jessica Alba.
LA Dodgers hottie Matt Kemp (who recently modeled for Gap Factory Store’s fall campaign alongside Chanel Iman) looked sexy as he made his way inside.
Kobe Bryant’s wife Vanessa Bryant flipped her hair and flashed a smile on her way inside.
And mother-of-two Evelyn Lozada enjoyed the show with her daughter Shaniece.
‘Yonce shared a snippet from her 10-episode series of concert performances from her Mrs. Carter Show World Tour for HBO’s “Beyonce: X10” special. The mini-episodes air every Sunday at 8:55pm right before “True Blood” on HBO.
In the snippet, Bey & Hov playfully perform “Drunk In Love” as Bey bounced around in a shimmery nude catsuit and matching pumps. Check it above.
And if you still haven’t gotten enough of Bey & Jay #OnTheRun, their HBO concert special will debut on September 20th at 9pm ET.
Shutting down those crazy break-up rumors, Beyonce and Jay Z made an appearance at a get-together hosted by Hov’s mother Gloria Carter for the opening of her new restaurant, Diamondz N Da Ruff in Newark, NJ last week.
The Carters were there for the ribbon cutting and champagne toast to celebrate his mom’s new endeavor. We hear Bey and Gloria hugged and laughed together throughout the evening. There were no paparazzi but TMZ caught a quick glimpse of them having a good time. Check it out here.
Now…can we just let them live?

Columbus Short, a "wanted" man in Los Angeles, was spotted getting it in at carnival. See photos inside...
Troubled actor Columbus Short was spotted dancing his troubles away at the J'ouvert Carnival in Barbados.
It probably isn't wise for Columbus to pose for pictures while there is a bench warrant waiting for him in LA. You'll recall that he missed a court date a few days ago. Sigh......
We hope Columbus enjoys his freedom...we're sure the judge in his case will review these party pics the next time he shows up in court.
