Exclusive: George Clinton & Parliament-Funkadelic Rock B.B. Kings in NYC


No one under the sun does it better than George Clinton!

We had the pleasure of attending the legendary artists latest concert at B.B. Kings in NYC on Tuesday night, and the show was nothing short of another legendary performance. At 74-years-old George can still hang with the best of them, but the spectacle that is Parliament-Funkadelic haven’t lost a beat, and the full band of 15+ rocked the house for well over an hour non-stop.

If you’ve never attended one of their shows, it’s an all out jam session party, with songs lasting 10-15 minutes long, extended musician solos, and energy levels blinking red the entire time.  The packed house never stopped dancing along to favorite after favorite, but of course it was the big classics like “Flash Light,” “Aqua Boogie” and “Atomic Dog” that had everyone turned all the way up.

George is a living legend, dressed like an old-school gangster on stage, he had the crowd on his every word and movement, at times jumping up and down, rapping, grinding on a female audience member, and even smoking a joint that came up from the crowd.

Thirst Trap Alert: Tinashe Sizzles On February Complex Cover

Tinashe Complex

Good Lord! Tinashe got us again!

Landing her first magazine cover of 2016, underground favorite turned R&B vixen, Tinashe, is heating up the pages of Complex for their February/March 2016 issue.

“This is definitely a racy photo shoot,” the singer told the magazine. “This is probably one of my racier ones. The only other one that could rival this shoot is my Playboy shoot but I think this one’s actually hotter.”

Tinashe, who’s readying her sophomore album Joyride, whets appetites with the eye-popping pics—she sips from a crazy straw (while showing underboob), drifts in a punch bowl, and climbs out of a glass of ice water.

“With this cover in particular, as opposed to others that I’ve done in the past, I definitely had a little bit more fun, which was cool,” she said. “We got to shoot some stuff that was really colorful and lighthearted. I had a little bit more creative control than I normally have so I had a really, really great time on this shoot.”

Kelly Rowland Parents Mag

Kelly Rowland has been absolutely loving every minute of motherhood, and now she has shared some of the moments, and motherly advise for the cover story of Parents Magazine.

Posing with her adorable 1-year-old son, Titan, the R&B singer and her baby boy will win over your heart, and maybe even help you if you are a soon-to-be parent.

In the interview, Kelly shares her experiences with being a new mother, as well as some new-motherly advice on how to regain your pre-baby figure.

“I was nervous that I didn’t have the patience to be a good mom because before Titan I had zero. But now I am very patient. The Bible verse ‘love is patient’ is real! I am much more laid-back now. I don’t make the little things into big issues like I once did,” she said.

Regarding her svelte post-baby bod, Kelly explains that she kept her workout routine throughout her pregnancy, causing her to snap back easier. But her advice to new moms is to avoid putting pressure on yourself. “It takes about a year to get the weight off. Don’t beat yourself up if it takes even longer.”
