Last night was the 2019 LACMA Art + Film Gala in Los Angeles, an annual museum fundraiser. This year’s soiree was sponsored by Gucci and attended by many stars from across the arts. Bringing in all these A-listers turned out to be a smart move because the event reportedly raised over $4.6 million for the museum’s exhibitions, future art acquisitions, educational initiatives and film program.

The fundraiser – which was co-chaired by Leonardo DiCaprio and museum trustee Eva Chow – celebrated the work Oscar-winning filmmaker Alfonso Cuarón (Gravity, Roma) and 93-year-old assemblage artist Betye Saar. John Legend introduced Saar, whom he called “one the most important artists her generation” and “the vanguard assemblage art.” Donald Glover said that Cuarón has made “some the most captivating films the last 30 years.” At the end the evening, all the guests proceeded to the plaza to watch Anderson .Paak perform.

Since it was a night celebrating creativity that was sponsored by a luxury fashion brand, everyone showed up in their best attire to dazzle on the red carpet. Here are some our favourite looks:

Immature’s Romeo Confirms Brandy Norwood Caused Him To Go Blind In One Eye

Prior to Marques Houston becoming a solo artist, the R&B singer was a member the group Immature. The teens primarily sang innocent love songs, but they were a hit and toured the world, performing for their young, and mature, fans. Each them had their own nicknames: Marques was “Batman,” Kelton Kessee was “LDB,” and Jerome Jones was known as “Romeo.”

The latter stood out from the other two because he sported a black eye patch, and while some thought it was a fashion statement, Jerome shared years ago that it stemmed from an incident that happened with fellow singer Brandy Norwood. Rumors circulated that the Moesha actress was responsible for Romeo’s eye injury, but while the gossip made it seem as if it was a purposeful move, Jerome confirmed in a recent interview with Nick Cannon that it was all an accident.

Cannon asked about the patch and the rumors about Brandy, and Jerome explained, “Yeah, her and Half Pint had got into it. She had a book in her hand, just tossed it back, not thinking anyone or I was that close. Cut my retina. Detached it. And the lens to the eye had fell out and Brandon Adams caught it. He was there with us. So, he’s standing there holding my lens. He’s not knowing what’s going on. Marq come in and we were trying to hide it.”

Marques chimed in that no one wanted to say anything because they wanted to make sure Brandy didn’t get scolded. “I was like ‘What’s going on?’ Rome is on the bed,” Marques said. “I’m like, ‘What’s going on?’ Rome is like, ‘Nothing. Nothing.’ Brandy’s like, ‘He don’t want to get me in trouble. Nothing, nothing.'” When he found out, he immediate ran for Chris Stokes and rushed Jerome to the hospital. Unfortunately, he became blind in that eye. Check out the clip below.

Israel Adesanya’s Next Challenger Revealed By Dana White: Watch

Israel Adesanya has taken the MMA world by storm over the last year or so thanks to some incredible form that has seen him pick up big wins against formidable opponents. Most recently, Adesanya defeated Robert Whittaker at UFC 243 in blistering fashion thanks to a second-round knockout. After the fight, pundits began debating who Izzy would fight next with some wanting to see him get a chance at Jon Jones.

In a recent interview with TMZ, UFC president Dana White commented on Adesanya’s future and fered some optimism for fans everywhere. While his next fight won’t be against Jones, there is certainly a possibility he will get that tilt as long as he wins his next match. For now, White is planning on matching up Adesanya against Paulo Costa.

This may not be the fight everyone was hoping for but it will allow the “last style airbender” to defend his title belt against someone new. Should he impress in that fight, Jones could most certainly be on the horizon. The two have traded jabs in the past and the fans would be treated to a legend trying to stave f an up and coming superstar.

Let us know in the comments below who you would like to see Adesanya fight next.

Zion Williamson’s Rookie Year Will Be "Very Similar" To Shaq’s, Says Stephen A. Smith

New Orleans Pelicans rookie Zion Williamson has drawn comparisons to plenty NBA stars since he burst onto the scene in High School, ranging from LeBron James to NBA Hall Famers such as Charles Barkley and Dominique Wilkins. 

These are certainly unfair expectations to put on a 19-year old kid, but Zion has shown no signs  letting that pressure effect his game. In the Pelicans most recent preseason game, the former Blue Devil racked up 29 points on 12–13 shooting (all in the paint) to go along with four assists and four rebounds in 27 minutes action. 

And as he continues to thrive against NBA competition, those superstar comparisons will continue to surface. On Thursday, ESPN’s Stephen A. Smith floated the name yet another Hall Famer who didn’t waste any time establishing himself as an All-Star. Says Smith, “I think that Zion’s rookie year, to some degree, is going to mirror Shaquille O’Neal.”

Specifically, Smith pointed to the fact that he expects Zion to get up 16 shots per game and many those will be dunks, just the way Shaq was able to throw his weight around in explosive fashion.

Of course, Shaq did way more than just dunk during his Rookie the Year campaign in the 1992-93 season. In addition to averaging 23.4 points, The Diesel posted career highs in rebounds and blocks per game in his first NBA season with 13.9 and 3.5, respectively. 

Check out the video below to catch Stephen A’s thoughts about Zion potentially having a Shaq-like rookie season.

6ix9ine’s Legal Team Is Fighting For A 2019 Release

The long and messy saga Tekashi 6ix9ine is, like a dead horse who continues to be pelted with blows, dragging at an eternal pace. At this stage, every bird in the an guide has been used as a simile against him. The post-trial landscape has already begun to shape, with two camps emerging in a Civil War-esque fashion: those that will turn their back on the young informant, and those who will allow him to roost upon their shoulders once again.

And while it was initially thought we’d be waiting until the new year for a verdict to be reached, it’s entirely possible that 6ix9ine channels Bing Crosby and makes it home for Christmas after all. According to a new report from HipHopLately, a piece Lawyer Lance Lazarro’s (representing young Tekashi) request implores a judge to speed things up, essentially. Should the judge opt to grant his request for an “expedited” sentence, it could very well spell an early return the notorious New Yorker.

Of course, it’s hardly a sure thing. The Judge may find himself shuddering at the thought a 6ix9ine comeback, and opt to prolong things accordingly. Yet should arrangements have already been made, perhaps it’s only logical to put a stop to the ride while the horse’s legs are still twitching. Are you excited for the second coming 6ix9ine?

Prior to Nebraska’s embarrassing 48-7 loss, the Wades took part in some flip cup along with Channing Frye and other Nebraska supporters. According to Wade, things were looking grim early on, but his team came from behind in epic fashion to win 3-2.

“While in college i didn’t drink so i was never apart the “college fun” but yesterday we won in flip cup 3-2 after being down 0-2 and it felt like 06’ all over again #Flipcupchampions2019″

The D-Wade x Gabby Union flip cup world tour is now f an running. Check out the footage below.

Ariana Grande & Forever 21 Extend Lawsuit

Ariana Grande seems to be putting her Forever 21 lawsuit on hold. According to The Blast, both parties have asked the court for an extension. Originally, the fast-fashion brand had until September 25th to respond to Grande’s lawsuit, but now, that deadline has been moved to November 8th. 

Court documents read, “the parties stipulate to the entry a Court Order extending Defendants’ deadline to respond to the Complaint, from September 25, 2019 to November 8, 2019, to allow the parties to continue meaningful settlement discussions. The parties have agreed to attempt to resolve the Dispute by participating in confidential mediation. The parties mutually agreed upon a mediator and mediation schedule. The parties require additional time to continue their good-faith attempt to resolve the Dispute and reach a settlement.”

Grande originally filed the suit after she felt Forever 21 was using her likeness to promote their clothing. Forever 21 negotiated with Grande for an endorsement deal last year, but the deal broke down after Grande was not fered an amount she felt was sufficient “for an artist her stature.”

Forever 21 has commented on the suit saying, “while we dispute the allegations, we are huge supporters Ariana Grande and have worked with her licensing company over the past two years. We are hopeful that we will find a mutually agreeable resolution and can continue to work together in the future.”

Off-White’s Quotation Trademark Application Was Rejected

Following a legal battle with a bracelet company earlier this year, Virgil Abloh’s brand Off-White is attempting to file a trademark for the phrase “Product Bag” with quotation marks around it; however, doing so seems to be a more difficult task than it appears. The attempt has been preliminarily declined.

According to The Fashion Law, an examining lawyer for the United States Patent and Trademark Office named Drew Ciurpita explained the decision saying,  “whether a designation functions as a trademark] depends on the commercial impression it makes on the relevant public; that is, whether purchasers would be likely to regard it as a source-indicator for the goods.” He continues, “consumers will perceive the mark as merely providing information about the packaging, which is a clear plastic bag.”

Essentially, what Ciurpita is saying, is that consumers will interpret Abloh’s “Product Bag” to be a description the item and not a distinguishing title.

Ciurpita also recommended a solution. Off-White would have to remove the words that describe what an item is from the item itself. This would mean no bags that say “bag” on them or ashtrays that say “ashtray” on them. We’ll have to wait and see how Off-White proceeds from here.
