The Story Of How Models Helped Hip-Hop Stars Make Videos That Made Money… Until The Game Changed (Trailer)

VIXEN. Simple, powerful title. Makes sense with coverage of Karrine Steffans (and her book) in this.

Saw this described elsewhere as exploring the ‘Video Vixen Era.’ Never thought of it as an era, but the MODELS (not the rappers or singers) in music videos that caught major buzz before Instagram… yeah, that’s a thing. Should make for some worthwhile watching. That, plus sexy women…

Melyssa Ford, Buffie The Body, Karrine Steffans and more video vixens write themselves back into Hip-Hop history in this BET Original Documentary.

And ahhh… Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is a self-described Democratic Socialist (just posted about that affiliation here).

Seth Rogan On Avoiding A Picture (Video)

This is too funny! Hahahahaha! Watch Seth tell his story to Stephen Colbert.

I’m glad I didn’t take a picture with Paul Ryan. I touched him, so I don’t know how I feel about that. His kids seemed lovely, and very Caucasian.

50 Central Needs These Actors To Be A Little More ‘Urban’ At Their Auditions (Video)

So right, but so wrong. Hahaaa!

I will admit to being a little uncomfortable, so I know the actors were when they got the Black card slammed down on them at the audition all of a sudden. Ole girl reeeeally drew it out for effect and let them sweat before letting them in on the joke.

Now, what would happen if you went to an audition & they told you to be ‘more Urban?’

Chadwick Boseman did a real ‘king move’ when he got that MTV Movie Award for best ‘Best Hero’… sending it home with James Shaw Jr., the brother who stopped the waffle house shooter in Tennessee. Dope!

(And don’t think I missed how HOT the presenters, Olivia Munn and Zazie Beetz, are in this clip. Whew! Psylocke and Domino, from Marvel movies, on the MTV stage, at the same time… WINNING!)

Same Tiffany Haddish, Better Wigs, On Jimmy Kimmel Live (Video)

I’m living my dream… I’m sleepwalking!

Great quotable. Still grateful for her success thus far. Cool.

Yep. The uber-silly, uber-sexy Tiffany does it again. She’s a smash hit on any talk show couch. Cracking up just listening to her talk, plus she’s easy on the eyes (wink). Kimmel plays the perfect straight guy to her hilarious color commentary. Hmm… ABC Sports ought to give them a test broadcast for some game somewhere. Bet they could make a game of cricket some must-see TV (ha)!

More after the jump.

Jada Pinkett Smith Speaks On Daughter Willow Catching Her And Will In The Act (Video)

Moms is here for you, Jada, but not for all of it. Sometimes the chatter gets out-of-bounds for mom. Jada’s Facebook vid series Red Table Talk has taken off though. Good stuff. We’ve posted a couple of eps.

Jada Pinkett Smith talks about her Facebook Watch show, Red Table Talk, and the cringeworthy way her daughter, Willow, was introduced to sex.
– The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon

“Lock your doors! Lock! Your! Doors!” Baaahahaa!

(But lock ’em though. Kids will come through while you and boo are trying to do the do…)

God Friended Me: Behind The Scenes (Series Teaser)

Hmm. “God Friended Me” seems intriguing, but I was on the fence. But hold the phone: I now HAVE to watch this… Because my cousin Michele shared it in her timeline like ‘recommended’… AND because this is a Greg Berlanti production (like Arrow, Flash, DC’s Legends Of Tomorrow… you get it). THIS is exactly why I watch credits!!

A young atheist is sent on a series of adventures after accepting an unexpected friend request from God. Take a peek behind the scenes at CBS’ new fall drama, God Friended Me.

Ah, Joe Morton has this new gig. Moving on since Scandal. Cool.

C’mon! Are you kidding me?? It’s not even close! We know who’d win, head-up, one-on-one, right? Yeah, you already know… Alright then. That’s all I gotta say.

You cannot tell me in a one-on-one game though that LeBron James wouldn’t dominate Mike.

Okay. And that’s all that Jay is gonna say. Hahaaa!
