John Legend and Chrissy Teigen Give Good Love in DuJour Magazine

John & Chrissy 4

John Legend and Chrissy Teigen are giving us nothing but real good love as they grace the cover of DuJour magazine’s Summer 2015 issue.

Inside the pages of the magazine, the couple, who tied the knot in 2013, stun in a gorgeous photo shoot shot by legendary photographer Bruce Weber; and talk about everything from willingness to share their relationship in public, to future family plans.

Teigen, who stripped down and posed nude in one photo, opened up about the couple’s hopes and plans for building a family.

“We want a lot of kids. I would love to have three or four of my own, and then adopt a few. So basically I’ll be pregnant the rest of my life,” she said, adding that her future pregnancies are, to some extent, what inspired her to go nude for the magazine. “You look at Kim [Kardashian] and see how women’s bodies just become so beautiful,” she said. “[The thought] of getting boobs thrills me. And John looooves pregnant women, so …”

In regards to their open relationship and not being afraid to seem normal John explained: “We don’t discuss everything in public but I feel like it’s okay to show people that we love each other.”

Take a look at their beautiful photo shoot below:

Ciara Stuns in Roberto Cavalli’s Fall/Winter Campaign


Ciara continues to use her best assets to promote her music, and now the singer has been named the new face of fashion brand Roberto Cavalli.  The “I Bet” singer stars in the designer’s Fall/Winter 2015-16 ad campaign. CiCi, who “embodies beauty with a hint of wildness,” poses against mounds of golden sand in an aqua green room in the surreal photos, shot by Francesco Carrozzini.

“The story of a world encapsulated in one room. A surreal kingdom where the walls look like a magical sky and surfaces enchant with desert volumes and earthy hues,” said the company. “[Ciara’s] youthful, proud elegance dominates the colours of the scene, entrusted to the lens of photographer Francesco Carrozzini.”

Ciara rocks Cavalli’s signature prints, tailored suits, and flowy gowns in a variety of bold colors. She poses against the doorway in a white fringe dress, stuns in a mustard-colored jumpsuit, and looks chic in a pair of white eyeglasses.

John Legend Sings “Toys R Us” Jingle (Response to Jamie Foxx’s Impression)


This past Tuesday during his visit to “The Tonight Show” Jamie Foxx gave a hilarious impersonation of John Legend while playing the game “Wheel of Impressions” with Jimmy Fallon. The song he had to sing as Legend was the famous jingle for Toys R Us, and he basically nailed it, at least in our opinion.

Well, as the clip went viral John Legend saw it, and now as a playful response he has recorded a video of himself singing the song!

At the end he even takes a little jab at Foxx by singing “hallelujah” in reference to his questionable performance of the national anthem at the Mayweather/Pacquiao fight.

Timbaland Ginuwine

You may recall late last year the announcement that Ginuwine and Timbaland were working together once again, creating music for the R&B veteran’s next solo album.

The project and partnership was revealed through a blockbuster movie style trailer, and the LP, which will be Ginuwine’s eighth album, was promoted to be titled Same Ol G. The title being named after the singer’s 1998 single that Timbaland produced, off his second album 100% Ginuwine.

We haven’t heard anything about it since, but early Wednesday morning both Ginuwine and Timbaland took to their Instagram accounts to share a photo together, and along with the post of the photo Tim wrote that the new album title is “Bachelor Again But Wiser.”

Floetry To Set Out On U.S. Summer Tour


Over the last year, we’ve gotten taken back to our past many times. From the return of jelly shoes, Jodeci, and thankfully, the beautiful Tamia, we’ve been able to feel more than just a bit of nostalgia these days.

Included in that swamp of good things was the reunion of British duo, Floetry, last December. Making a few appearances since then, the beautiful ladies have now announced that they will indeed be going through with a summer tour together.

Following their performance at Atlanta’s Funk Fest last weekend, Marsha Ambrosius took to her Instagram account to announce she and Natalie “The Floacist” Stewart will kick their tour off on June 17 in Cleveland, Ohio. Hitting St. Louis, Cali, and Texas before making their way to the Essence Festival in July, the talented songbirds are ready to bring that old thang back for fans to enjoy.

Closing out their summer tour on August 8 at the Spirit Festival in Maryland, we’re hoping that this tour is just the preparation for the long awaited follow-up album to 2005’s Flo’Ology.

Check out the dates of the tour below and purchase tickets here.

R. Kelly Announces 14th Studio Album ‘Buffet’


He’s not called the King of R&B for nothing…

While in Atlanta late last week for his performance at Funk Fest, R. Kelly stopped by V-103 to chop it up with Big Tigger, and while doing so he brought a little gift along, which was a brand new song called “Planet.”  The record is a inspirational, socially conscious type of song (something we haven’t heard from Kellz in a while, but miss) and he explained that he was inspired by the events in Baltimore, and all over the world as well.

“This is a reach out song,” said Kelly. “Ya know I always got to break it down before I put out my album, I gotta see what’s going on in the world and I got to say something about it.” Continuing, “It’s not just about the sex songs, sometimes it’s about issues, about what’s going on.”

It appears this won’t be a one-off single either, as R. Kelly has also revealed that he is prepping for his 14th studio album, which is going to be titled “Buffet.” Speaking with Rocsi Diaz on HLN’s The Daily Share, he made the announcement and shared the inspiration behind the title and concept.

“It’s all you can hear,” said Kellz. “I’m 27 years deep in the business, I’ve been blessed to do this music for so long and I’ve got a lot of great songs under my belt, and fans love it. But, I’ve got all different kinds of generations of fans now, and I have to feed everybody. You’ve got hip hop, you’ve got old school music with the “Step In The Name of Love” type, then you’ve got traditional R. Kelly, sensuous sexual kind of music. It’s just a variety of things, so I call it the buffet.”

If all goes according to plan the album will be out as early as this summer or early fall.
