Will Smith Is Still Jada Smith’s Favourite Form Of Transportation

Jada Pinkett Smith has previously explained why she’s the happiest she’s even been in her whole entire life and it all has to do with her inner peace. “I really thought happiness had a lot to do with pleasure, and I realized that happiness is about peace,” she explained. “I am the most peaceful I’ve ever been in my life, so I am the happiest.”

Aside from her inner thoughts and feels, Jada can thank her loving family for bringing her joy, sometimes in the form little things such as her husband Will Smith giving her a piggyback when her feet hurt. The “Set It Off” actress shared an image to Instagram that sees Will carry her outside an airport. “When your feet hurt…” she captioned he image. 

While Jada and Will are clear couple goals, the 47-year-old previously opened up on how his appearance on her Red Table Talk series is to show that marriages aren’t perfect. “What was really important about Will and I doing that show together — two things — first all was to get rid the idea that people in the public eye have perfect relationships. We were kind sick living up to that,” she explained. 

“Will being the successful guy that he is and being willing to share what his pitfalls were in the relationship and in his family, you can’t imagine how many other successful men called and said, ‘Wow, my wife has been saying the same thing for years. Because you said it, it opened my eyes and because you said it, now I’m willing to listen,'” she added.

 

Here’s Why People Think Bella Hadid & The Weeknd Are Back Together

At the top this month, Bella Hadid and The Weeknd broke up for a second time ending what was seemingly their longest run at their relationship. Sources say things ended due to their conflicting schedules that placed them on opposite sides the world but after The Weeknd showed up to a club Bell and her friends were at last weekend, the model and her crew dipped instantly, making it clear they aren’t on the best terms.

Now just a few days later, fans think that the exes may have tried again at their relationship since Bella posted a series images to her Instagram feed that had people thinking they were hanging out. In the gallery below, the second image shows a man handing a woman some flowers, with comments suggesting it’s the “Often” singer. “Are those my bby Abel hands in the second pic,” one user wrote. 

However, considering that Bella doesn’t have the same tattoos as the woman in the photo it’s safe to assume that maybe, just maybe, this is a far-out fan theory. 

Once Bella and The Weeknd ended things, the singer launched into album mode letting all his fans know that new music is on the way. 

Lil Wayne’s Daughter Responds To Young Thug: "No Clout Chasing"

If you haven’t checked out Young Thug‘s interview on Big Boy Radio yesterday, do yourself a favor and go do that right now. The Atlanta rapper has never been this open in his career and getting to know him a little more, especially after he dropped his debut album So Much Fun, is a blessing. Speaking on everything from his sexuality, his relationship with Rich Homie Quan, and what he thinks about Lil Wayne, there was a lot to unpack from the interview. During a portion the rapper’s sit-down with Big Boy, he noted that he doesn’t think Lil Wayne is a big fan his. “He don’t like me. I think it’s because he just been with Birdman his whole life and he’s just so spoiled to the point where it’s like… he’s really spoiled,” he said. Now that the comment has been sitting for a bit, Reginae Carter, Wayne’s daughter, took it upon herself to clear the air.

The entertainer purchased her first-ever home yesterday and today, she’s settling in by trying to squash any brewing beef between Thugger and her daddy. Reginae took to Twitter to fer her likely response to Thug: “If you’re a rapper and you think my father doesn’t like you… that’s not the case always,” she wrote. He probably really just don’t know you. Lol or don’t care to get to know you. No beefs. He really just be on his shit and only that. No clout chasing cause that’s not apart his job.”

Given the timing the message, there’s a high chance this is regarding what Thugger said during his interview yesterday. The tweet has since been deleted but it was picked up by DJ Akademiks, who reposted it on his own page. 

Young Thug Talks Sexuality, Lil Wayne, and JAY-Z’s NFL Deal

Fresh off the release of his debut album So Much Fun, Young Thug stopped by “Big Boy’s Neighborhood” on REAL 92.3.

During the 80-minute interview, the “Surf” rapper opened up about a variety of hot topics including his sexuality. “People judge me and people say gay, but at one point, I probably had more hoes…It’s serious,” he said. “If people think that I’m gay, they already misjudged. I’m the straightest man in the world…I hate guys. What the f**k are you talking about? I’m not even having no threesome with no ni**a.”

He also addressed his beef with his idol-turned-rival Lil Wayne. “I don’t think that ni**a like me,” he laughed. “I don’t know why though.”

When pressed further, he responded, “I just think it’s because he’s been with Birdman his whole life. He’s just so spoiled to the point where he’s really spoiled. He’s been a millionaire, he’s been a superstar since he was nine years old. So he don’t know nothing but his way. The first thing that don’t go his way, it don’t have nothing in the world to do with me.”

Big Boy also asked Thug about his relationship with Rich Homie Quan. “We don’t have no problem. I don’t think we can be like how we used to be,” he said. “He already did some bullshit, he already know my heart so I’m too pure. Once you do that, it’s like no.”

While he forgives him (“I always forgive”), he said they have no plans to collaborate again. “It’s nothing about music. It’s 100 percent personal,” he said. “Now you probably can never get the blessing of having me on the song and I can never get the blessing of having you on the song again.”

Plus, Thugger weighed in on JAY-Z’s NFL partnership. “I think JAY-Z the GOAT. If I was a billionaire and I had the power they had, I’ll try to own a football team just to let the black brother play on the team,” he said.

He’s hopeful that the Roc Nation boss has a bigger plan that will involve Colin Kaepernick. “This guy life is a setup. This is the trailer. It’s gonna happen 100 percent.”

Plus, watch him speak on So Much Fun and his relationship with Nipsey Hussle in the full interview below.

WWE Announces Live NXT Show To Compete With AEW: Superstars Respond

WWE has ficially announced that NXT will be switching to a live, two-hour weekly show airing on the USA Network starting Wednesday, September 18. NXT, which is the last stop for WWE superstars before they make the leap to Raw or SmackDown, has aired exclusively as a one-hour show on the WWE Network since 2014.

“The move to USA Network provides an opportunity to deepen our relationship with NBCUniversal and further build the NXT brand,” said Vince McMahon, WWE Chairman & CEO. “Over the long term, our goal is to develop a following that can be monetized to the same level as our flagship programs, Raw and SmackDown.”

In taking the Wednesday night slot, NXT will compete against All Elite Wrestling’s weekly TNT program slated to debut on October 2. Both shows will run from 8-10pm ET, reminiscent how WWE and WCW clashed during the “Monday Night Wars” the ’90s.

To quote former WWE champion and current AEW superstar, Chris Jericho: “Gonna be fun to see which team the world decides to join!”

WWE legend Triple H runs the show for NXT, and he was among the many superstars who took to social media on Tuesday after the USA deal was announced.

“Can’t describe this announcement in any other word than PROUD. Proud everyone involved from day one. Proud you’ve let your voice be heard and carried the banner this brand. Proud you’ve loudly & clearly said #WeAreNXT. And I’m proud to say, we’re just getting started.”

Young Thug’s Director Says Beef With Rich Homie Quan Runs "Deeper Than Rap"

Days removed from Young Thug‘s So Much Fun album release, Thugger’s longtime collaborator and creative director Be El Be hit up ‘s r/hiphopheads for an AMA. With the bulk the questions centering around the enigma that is Young Thug, Be El’s open honesty and tendency to answer most questions made for an informative read across the board.

Eventually, one user inquired about the state  Rich Homie Quan and Young Thug’s current relationship, which took a dark turn after Rich Gang showed such promise. Though we never received ficial word as to what drove them apart, something clearly occurred to fracture the relationship beyond repair. Case in point, not even a cool million from Gucci Mane was enough to mend the shattered fence. 

Unfortunately, Be El Be explains that some feuds are simply beyond repair. “Deeper than rap kid. Trust me,” he explains. “If you knew the truth you wouldn’t even want them to work together. Just leave it at that.” Of course, such mysterious claims only serve to fuel speculation, but should it indeed be so grave, perhaps both men are better f steering clear one another. Given their longstanding history, it’s no surprise that Be El Be remains cynical on that front – still, he’s not entirely dismissive the possibility. “Maybe when they 50,” he suggests, leaving the door open a smidge.

Jamie Foxx & Katie Holmes Split After Six Years: Report

It appears the six year relationship between Katie Holmes & Jamie Foxx has ended according to multiple reports.

Yesterday, rumors were circulating online that Foxx might have been cheating on Katie after photos emerged showing the actor holding hands in Los Angeles this weekend with a much-younger singer Sela Vave, but that’s not the case. PageSix reports that Katie ended the relationship months earlier.

A source at La Esquina overheard the actress, who was having dinner with girlfriends at the Kenmore Street restaurant, tell a friend, “What Jamie does is his business — we haven’t been together for months.” Another source Katie’s confirmed the two split back in May.

As for why the split? A source from In Touch Weekly says that the long distance hurt it. “Katie and Jamie’s relationship has been long-distance. He’s been living in L.A. full time, and she’s been in New York. It’s been way on and f for years, and Katie’s always had a hard time with it.”

“For months he’s been promising to calm his wild ways, but nothing’s changed, and she’s finally come to the conclusion that she wants to be with a guy who’s more mature and ready to settle down,” the insider added. “She also can’t keep an eye on him when he’s in L.A. and is fed up with doing the whole long-distance thing, so she gave him an ultimatum — either move to New York or it’s over!” And apparently Jamie wasn’t ready to make that move.

Death Row Records has had an impressive presence in 2019, a testament to the label’s enduring legacy. Between Snoop Dogg openly embracing Suge Knight as his OG and his frequent throwbacks to the glory days with 2Pac, Tha Row has been on many minds.

Michael “Harry” O’Harris, the co-founder Death Row Records, is set to be released from prison after serving thirty-one years. 

According to a report from Daily Mail, Harris will be released in “mid-August.” He originally helped build Death Row by investing $1.5 million dollars into its parent company, all while behind bars for charges attempted murder and kidnapping. Prior, Harris was a cocaine kingpin interested in expanding his business into the entertainment industry. Difficult to maneuver from a jail cell, but somehow, he made it work. Alongside his ex-wife Lydia, Harris helped bankroll some Death Row’s most notable albums, including The Chronic.

Now, with his release imminent, Harris claims to be moving forward as a changed man.
