The Bad Boys are back. Will Smith might not be involved in the upcoming Independence Day sequel, but he is teaming up with Martin Lawrence for a third installment of their Bad Boys series.

“I saw Martin a few weeks ago,” the rapper-actor told A.Dot on BBC Radio 1Xtra. “I hadn’t seen him for about two years and we just looked at each other and we hugged and in that moment, we both knew we were making another Bad Boys. We’re definitely doing another one.”

Will and Martin teamed up for Bad Boys in 1995 and its sequel in 2003. In August, The Hollywood Reporter confirmed that a third and fourth installment of the franchise are scheduled for 2017 and 2019. Now we know the duo will be back for a third, but the fate of Bad Boys 4 remains to be seen.

Watch Will’s full interview and check out more highlights from the Q&A below.

ON PLAYING JAMES BOND: “Idris [Elba] has to do that one first. Idris is going to be the first black Bond.”

ON NOT BEING IN INDEPENDENCE DAY: RESURGENCE: “I had a couple of films lined up. I had Concussion and Suicide Squad and it was a decision, timing wise, between Independence Day and Suicide Squad…The world is in a place of nostalgia right now, specifically in entertainment. There’s such a pull for nostalgia. It was just the perfect opportunity and it didn’t work out.”

ON JADEN SMITH: “There’s really a powerful internal quality as an artist that, as parents, we encourage. You have to get out on the edge. You have to try things. You have to be comfortable doing things that people don’t agree with. And you have to be comfortable doing things that you can fail. Jaden is 100 percent fearless. He will do anything. So, as a parent, it’s scary. It’s really terrifying, but he is completely willing to live and die by his own artistic decisions. He just doesn’t concern himself with what people think.”

ON WILLOW SMITH: “I have two sons. My oldest is 23. Jaden is 17 and Willow is 15. As a father and in the time I spend with the boys, they’re with six or seven dudes. So they have a small army when they go out. So their freedom is slightly different from Willow’s. Willow’s a 15-year-old girl so we try to have the same rules, but it’s a different world so we’ve been struggling with that. Yes, Willow has a curfew. Fridays and Saturdays, we give her until 11-11:30 p.m.”

ON THE OSCARS BOYCOTT: “To me, it’s so far not about me. It’s not about us going to a show or not. This is a much bigger social issue. I’m recognizing a pattern of the narrowing of the imagery, the narrowing of tolerance in America. The last, pretty much 18 months, that I’ve been watching the news and experiencing the things that are going on in my country, my concern is that Hollywood is reflecting a regressive trend. Hollywood is supposed to lead. Hollywood is supposed to be the most diverse and most inclusive…I think it’s an absolute necessity that Hollywood lead. I’m concerned that I’m seeing Hollywood slipping and making a slide that is a social and political slide that’s happening throughout the country.”

Bitch, she’s back. On the eve of her Super Bowl halftime performance with Coldplay, Queen Bey returns with her Southern-fried banger “Formation,” produced by Mike WiLL Made-It and co-written by Rae Sremmurd’s Swae Lee.

The song also comes with its own stunning Melina-directed video, which was shot in New Orleans. The five-minute clip, a proud homage to being black, opens with Bey on top of a cop car floating in a flooded street post-Hurricane Katrina. She dances in a mansion and in an empty pool, rides out the car window, and throws up the middle finger. Blue Ivy even makes an adorable cameo.

“I like my negro nose with Jackson 5 nostrils / Earned all this money, but they never take the country out me,” she sings. “I got hot sauce in my bag. Swag!”
But the visuals also carry a deeper message in support of Black Lives Matter. At the end, cops raise their hands in front of a hoodie-clad child while a wall reads, “Stop shooting us.”

“Formation” is available for free download on TIDAL. Bey has also launched her “Formation Collection” of clothing featuring lyrics like “I twirl on them haters” and “You that bitch when you cause all of this conversation.”

Damage control! Wiz Khalifa just wants you to have fun. That’s the first thing you realize when you’re at Wiz’ listening party in a packed room with the rap industry’s elite. Leave your cool at the door. Get a drink in a Khalifa-branded Styrofoam cup, eat some hors d’oeuvres, and chill out to his new album, Khalifa, a mix of different flavors wrapped into one.

This week, Wiz is on a promotional run for Khalifa, due out Friday (Feb. 5). The Pittsburgh rapper hosted a private listening session at Bar Naná in New York’s Meatpacking District, bringing together Michael Strahan, Busta Rhymes, Fame School, PnB Rock, and more. At times, you could catch guests at the photo booth snapping goofy pics or getting their own set of TGOD ink at the designated tattoo station. A bit of a surprise was seeing Amber Rose posing for pictures with her ex-husband. As she wrote on Twitter later that evening: “Supporting Sebastian’s Dad at his #Khalifa Album Listening Party.”

Way to spin drama into publicity! Although that picture really looks uncomfortable with the two.

YASSS!!!  Singer/actor Tyrese Gibson penned this emotional Instagram tribute to the beautiful Viola Davis, who picked up a SAG Award for best actress this weekend.

The 40-year-old “How To Get Away With Murder” star is an inspiration to 100% black women and girls everywhere.

Every year the Screen Actor’s Guild celebrates outstanding achievements in film, radio and television (mostly television).

Ms. Davis, who won a SAG Award for Best Actress in a television drama, had this to say about the controversy surrounding the #OscarsSoWhite protests in the green room:

“We have become a society of trending topics. Diversity is not a trending topic. It’s just not. I’ve always considered myself an actor since I got my equity card in 1988. I’ve never put any limitations on myself. I felt like I can play Chekhov — any character in Chekhov — in Shakespeare, in Miller, in August Wilson.”
Obviously moved to tears by Davis’s speech, Tyrese posted this lengthy tribute to her on his Instagram account.

Davis and her husband, actor Julius Tennon, 62, adopted a biracial girl as a newborn in 2011.

So the SAG AWARDS just gave the Oscars the middle finger! 'Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to diverse TV!' SAG Awards make a mockery of Oscars race row as black actors Idris Elba, Queen Latifah, Viola Davis and Uzo Aduba all walk away with prizes.

In the midst of the Oscars racism row the Screen Actors Guild Awards was dishing out prizes to nominees of all races and backgrounds on Saturday night.
Among the big winners were Idris Elba, who got two statuettes (center) - for Best Supporting Actor for Beasts Of No Nation and Best Actor in a TV Miniseries for Luther.
Viola Davis (left), who was awarded Outstanding Performance by an Actress in a Drama Series for How To Get Away With Murder, Queen Latifah (right), who won Best Actress in a TV Movie or Miniseries for HBO's Bessie, and Uzo Aduba (inset), the winner of Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Comedy Series for Orange Is The New Black. After winning two awards, an overwhelmed Elba told the star-studded audience at the Shrine Auditorium in LA:
'Welcome to diverse Tv"
Earlier this month the actor had spoken out against this year's Oscars nominations, which are all-white. Elba, who first made his name in the gritty drama series The Wire, was a surprise winner despite the critical acclaim he has received for his performance in Beasts Of No Nation and as a tormented detective in Luther. 
'I remember getting my SAG card from Law & Order 20 odd years ago,' the actor said as he excitedly collected his first award of the night for Beasts Of No Nation. 'We made a film about real people and real lives, you know, and to be rewarded for it is very special. Thank you for giving this film some light, respect, love.'

While the Academy Awards is in the grips of a race argument, the Screen Actors Guild proved to be a clear celebration of diversity on Saturday. Congratulations to all the WINNERS!

Arnold Schwarzenegger's reign as the new host of Celebrity Apprentice will begin with a diverse round-up of contestants. Musicians Vince Neil, Boy George and Carnie Wilson are just a few of the names competing to donate $250,000 to the charity of their choice.
The other 13 contestants include Laila Ali, Brooke Burke-Charvet, Eric Dickerson, Matt Iseman, Carrie Keagan, Carson Kressley, Lisa Leslie, Jon Lovitz, Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi, Kyle Richards, Chael Sonnen, Porsha Williams and Ricky Williams. With 
Schwarzenegger replacing presidential candidate Donald Trump as the new host, a new panel of advisors have also been tapped for the eighth season. Warren Buffett, Tyra Banks, Steve Ballmer and Jessica Alba will be assisting the former California governor throughout the season.

NBC severed ties with Trump following derogatory comments he made about Mexicans and immigration. "At NBC, respect and dignity for all people are cornerstones of our values," the network said last June. 

Along with the new host and panel of advisors, the series will relocate from New York City to Los Angeles. The Terminator star will also get his own catchphrase, replacing Trump's "You're fired." According to Variety's Elizabeth Wagmeister, Schwarzenegger's new catchphrase has already been chosen but it will not be revealed until the new season airs. A premiere date has yet to be set.

 Versace, Versace! Jennifer Lopez is ageless—a singing supernova who is unapologetically grown-up, holding her own in a world of pop-star girls who play up their ingenue status—and as of tonight, she will join the iconic ranks of Elvis, Cher, and Prince before her as she embarks on a three-year residency in Las Vegas.

Never afraid of a little sparkle, Lopez brought a shimmying splendor to her performance attire long before she got top billing on the Vegas Strip for her new show, As for last night opening concert, expect nothing less than over-the-top dazzle from the star, who will be wearing three glamorous looks all courtesy of Swarovski and Versace.

Designed by Donatella Versace with help from costumers and stylists Rob Zangardi and Mariel Haenn, the looks include a high-slit, plumage-packed gown and a bedazzled take on athleisure—both dotted with the classic Versace medusa emblems.
If there’s anything Jennifer is known for, it’s glamour. We decided to go over the top with a belted Swarovski crystal jacket, adorned in luxe white feathers from head to toe,” said Zangardi. “This is the ultimate Old Hollywood ‘just lounging look.’
 And by ‘just lounging,’ we mean exuding all kinds of exaggerated glamour.” Swarovski has embellished the ensembles with nearly 260,000 crystals, in colors ranging from Amethyst to Light Siam and Jet. And those aren’t the only glinting numbers to crunch: It took more than two months and over 1,400 hours to create, along with five Swarovski crystal–mesh panels and 100 feet of Swarovski chains. 

But despite all of the glitz, Lopez still stays true to her roots: One outfit is comprised of a crystal-covered hot pink New York Yankees cap, complete with a pair of matching slouchy trousers, bodysuit, and duster jacket—all of which are emblazoned with Bronx.
