So yes we want to be her when we grow up! ...Now that’s how it’s done, guys! The breathtakingly beautiful Halle Berry looked gorgeous on the red carpet at the 2015 ESPY Awards. While she looked perfect from head to toe, we were particularly loving her wavy, shoulder-length hair!

Halle Berry mother of two at 48, stunned the ESPY Awards on July 15 at Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles! The Academy Award winning actress was in attendance to present the Pat Tillman award, which meant a lot to her. Before the show, Halle walked the carpet showing off her amazing hair and makeup for the evening — a sexy smokey eye paired with voluminous/relaxed waves! What a perfect combo, right?!

Ok so Halle can do no wrong, we’re aware, but we were really blown away by her ESPYS look! Where do we even begin? Her makeup was seriously flawless! Rosy cheeks, nude lips and a smokey eye — she really nailed it!

Her hair was everything, though! The color, for starters, is SO perfect. Halle is currently rocking a subtle balayage and we are totally diggin’ it. Those barely noticeable, lighter highlights towards the bottom of her lob really bring out some serious summer vibes!

Now, we have to mention that volume! We love how Halle is rocking relaxed, beachy waves but with a ton of volume! Instead of picking up that sea salt spray, try using a texturizing spray to get the same volume as Halle’s!

Rapper 50 Cent may soon change his name to 5 cents — the amount he’s worth after losing a multi-million dollar lawsuit last week.

The 40-year-old rapper, whose real name is Curtis James Jackson III, is crying broke after filing for bankruptcy on Monday. The court filing comes just days after a Manhattan jury awarded $5 million to Lastonia Leviston, who sued him for releasing her sex tape online without her permission in 2009.

Leviston is a former girlfriend and baby mama of rapper Rick Ross, with whom Jackson had beef.
Jackson narrated the sex tape in a 13-minute video in which he appeared wearing a curly wig as a fictional character named Pimpin’ Curly.

Jackson claims he got the tape in 2008 from the man who is being serviced by Leviston in the sex tape.
Jackson testified in court that he was “just joking” with the woman whom he referred to as a “porn star.”

Leviston, of Pembroke Pines, Florida, told the court she was horrified and humiliated when she saw herself engaging in consensual sex with her then-boyfriend online.
The “Get Rich or Die Tryin'” rapper filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy at the U.S. Bankruptcy Court in Hartford, Conn., on Monday.
In court papers Jackson claimed debts of $10 million to $50 million each.
Jackson is advised to scrub his social media accounts of all photos displaying obscene amounts of cash, such as the above photo of Jackson stuffing $2 million in cash into the trunk of his Lamborghini.


Taylor Swift pulled out all the stops when her “1989 Tour” rolled into New Jersey’s MetLife Stadium on Friday night.

For the first surprise of the evening, The Weeknd appeared on stage to perform his new hit “Can’t Feel My Face” off his upcoming album Beauty Behind the Madness, due Aug. 28. The Canadian crooner dueted with Swift as she strut across the stage.
“Will you say a warm hello to my friend The Weeknd?” she asked the crowd, who greeted him with cheers.

After the show was over, they exchanged kind words on Twitter.

During her surprise-filled set, Swift was also joined by the world champion U.S. Women’s Soccer Team and her “Bad Blood” video co-stars including Lena Dunham, Hailee Steinfeld, Lily Aldridge, and Gigi Hadid.

The list of all-stars to grace Empire’s second season has just gotten a bit longer. Lee Daniels took to his Instagram to announce that Tyrese will also be guest starring on the second season of FOX’s hip-hop drama. No word on what character he will portray yet.

For quite some time now, Ty has been dropping hints that he’s trying to be down with #TeamEmpire. It all began with a March Facebook post in which he joked about wanting to be reunited with former on-screen love interest, Taraji P. Henson, who plays Cookie on the popular series.

I’m not cool with all these dudes feeling all up on Yvette and Its on TV? I heard they call her Cookie now? The homies are telling me I gotta gotta get my bitch back.. I guess I gotta change my name too and go do some show called #Empire? Cause that’s where Yvette is now under her alias #Cookie? Damn…. see you soon
He later mentioned in an interview that he was actually in talks to appear in season one, but personal matters supposedly kept him away.

“I was supposed to be on season one of ‘Empire,’ and I was in and out of court fighting for a personal matter with my 7-year-old, so I wasn’t able to do the show. That’s the truth,” he told Huff Post Live. “I don’t like this Derek Luke dude kissing all over my girl. I don’t like Terrence [Howard] kissing all over her. It bothers me, and we’re gonna have to figure this shit out.”
According to Ty, his friends Taraji and Lee were also unhappy when season one plans fell through.

“Taraji and Lee Daniels were very, very disappointed — and I was too — that I couldn’t do it,” the actor added.

Anyway, after quite a bit of campaigning for a second chance, Tyrese was given another opportunity to take part in the popular series. Thursday, Lee announced on Instagram that the “Shame” singer will appear in season two:

Yes! Stop asking!!! #tyrese is coming on #empireseason2 And NO, I am not leaving my show! I just wrapped my 1st episode … I got #richardpryor to do! It was so much fun directing our wonderful cast … I miss and love them ALL… Sorta sad cause I’m not with them now but I’ll be back for the finale!! In the meantime we got some badass directors stepping in!!! #family #fox #empire #gottagettomakingmovies #iaintmadeamoviesincethebutler.
The exact nature of Ty’s role has not been disclosed, but it looks like he may be a love interest of Taraji. He confirmed on Instagram:
Fuuuuuccckkkkk that I’m coming to get my girl back……. I wasn’t gonna say shit – Lee Daniels just made the announcement #EMPIRE SEASON 2 Jody back on his bullshit – Taraji I mean Yvette I mean #Cookie I’m sorry I wasn’t there #Curtains #DropsMicExitStageLeft
So, are you excited about his “Empire” debut? Hopefully, his storyline will be juicy.
