If you can't watch mommy on-stage, there's always the one and only Janet Jackson!
Friday night turned into date night for Beyoncé and Blue Ivy Carter as they traveled to The Forum in Inglewood, Calif., to support Janet's Unbreakable World Tour.

After fans caught the pair dancing and singing along in their seats during the show, the "Crazy in Love" crooner and her daughter headed backstage to meet some of the talented, young dancers making the show unforgettable.

Dancer Taylor Hatala shared a photo of Queen B and Blue in matching white Converse before it was time to call it a night. "So grateful I got the chance to meet @Beyonce and her beautiful daughter Blue Ivy at #unbreakableLA #Jbaby #Jlittle," she wrote on social media. "LA you were unbelievable last night!"
Beyoncé wasn't the only A-list star who had to catch a glimpse of Janet's highly anticipated tour.
Channing Tatum tagged along with Jenna Dewan-Tatum and her girlfriends for the concert. In fact, the Magic Mike hunk couldn't help but sing a few favorites before arriving at the venue.
"JANET. RIGHT NOW. PRE PARTY," she wrote on Twitter as her husband did a dubsmash to the hit song "Escapade." "LETS GOOOOOOOO @echriqui @channingtatum @espinosa22 @JanetJackson."
Finally, some of Janet's closest family members were on-hand to support the singer. Before showtime, sister La Toya Jackson revealed parents Joe Jackson and Katherine Jackson were both attending Friday night's show.

As you likely could have guessed, they were all so very proud.
"Backstage @janetjackson #unbreakabletour with my parents. Ready to see an INCREDIBLE show!!!" La Toya shared on Twitter. "The show was awesome! And Janet was stunning! Enjoyed it!"

Are they forgetting, this was a scripted show?  This was not a reality show! Look what Ebony magazine did to TV’s iconic Huxtable family. Ebony is so wrong for this. Don’t smear TV’s favorite family with Bill Cosby’s real life issues. Is nothing sacred anymore?

The disrespectful cover didn’t sit well with the show’s loyal fans. Many of them took to social media to criticize Ebony for exploiting the Huxtables to sell magazines.

For what it’s worth, Ebony’s majority shareholder is Chase Bank. So there you go.

From NY Daily News:
Ebony Magazine sparked outrage with readers after releasing the cover of their November issue — which featured a fractured image of “The Cosby Show” cast for a story on broken families in the African American community.
The front page came just days after Cosby gave a deposition in Boston for a sexual battery civil lawsuit filed in Los Angeles.

More than 50 women — including models Beverly Johnson and Janice Dickinson — have come forward accusing the comedian of drugging them and, in most cases, sexually assaulting them.


Hail to the queen. Beyoncé gets patriotic for Issue #16 of U.K. magazine BEAT.

Shot by Ryan McGinley in the Hamptons, the cover shows the “American fu**ing idol” by the shore, decked out in a red hoodie and red-and-white-striped swimsuit, while a giant American flag waves in the background.

Fresh from her Hamptons shoot, Beyoncé will headline the TIDAL X: 1020 concert at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center on Oct. 20. The all-star lineup also includes Jay Z, Prince, Nicki Minaj, Usher, Lil Wayne, and T.I.

The issue of BEAT hits newsstands Oct. 21.


Following the likes of 50 cents, Sean “Puff Daddy Combs” is now venturing into scripted programming, due to him producing a new comedy on ABC entitled, “The Hustle”. He is currently teaming up with ABC to produce a comedy based on his assistant’s life.
It chronicles the real life events of Diddy’s right hand woman, as she lands a job working as an assistant to a street-educated billionaire , where she is immersed into the life of lavishness, adventure, and extravagance.

This is Diddy’s first attempt at scripted television. If the show moves forward, viewers will get a feel for the fish-out-of-water experience of an unassuming girl thrown into a superstar world of fast-paced decadence. 
Sarah Snedeker inspires The Hustle

And, talk about moving up the ranks! Diddy’s assistant-turned-Revolt Films exec, Sarah Snedeker, will serve as producer and consultant on the comedy. It’s always nice when a powerhouse promotes from within and shows appreciation for those who work so hard for him.

Diddy will serve as executive producer of The Hustle along with writer/director Jeremy Garelick (The Wedding Ringer, The Break-Up), and Stacey Harman (ABC’s The Goldbergs). Garelick and Harman will co-pen the pilot script and Garelick will also direct if the project moves to pilot.

On another note, there’s a clear-cut theme in Diddy’s work these days. News of The Hustle hits the day after the release of his new single Workin.

Check out a trailer for the upcoming Puff Daddy & the Family “Workin” video.


Who knew they all had the same complexion...photo shop much? For the first time in 25 years, Toni, Traci, Tamar, Towanda and Trina Braxton are linking up to put out a joint project.

Prayers are needed for former NBA player,Lamar Odom, Lamar Odom is fighting for his life after falling into unconsciousness at Dennis Hof's Love Ranch South in Pahrump, Nevada.

Sources at the Love Ranch say... 35-year-old Odom arrived at the Ranch Saturday and was partying with the girls for days.   A source at the Ranch said Lamar was taking an herbal substitute for Viagra.

The media spoke with Hof  ... who states Tuesday afternoon, a woman went into Odom's room in the VIP suites and found him unconscious. 
We're told the woman began screaming for the manager -- who called 911. 
The manager rolled Lamar over on his side and saw "mucus-type liquid coming out of his nose and mouth."

The Nye County Sheriff's Department said he was then taken by another ambulance to Sunrise Hospital in Las Vegas because he was too tall at 6'10" to be airlifted. 

Odom's ex-wife Khloe Kardashian, right, is said to be 'inconsolable' and has rushed to his bedside along with her sister Kim Kardashian West , and mother Kris Jenner. His ex-team mate at the LA Lakers Kobe Bryant was also seen arriving at the Sunrise Hospital in Las Vegas, left, to visit Odom who is in a coma and is also suffering problems with his liver and kidneys. 
The troubled star's NBA career has deteriorated over the past few years and his use of hardcore recreational drugs was blamed for the collapse of his marriage to Khloe. Odom has two children from a previous relationship with Liza Morales; Destiny, 17, and 13-year-old 
An ambulance took Lamar to Pahrump hospital, where doctors intubated him ... an indication he could not breathe on his own.

We're told Lamar had been partying at the ranch by himself -- with no friends or entourage.  The NBA star's personal trainer also spoke outside the hospital, saying Odom must have suffered a 'momentary lapse'  

Odom's father Joe has reportedly said he believes that his son had been drugged and was recently depressed.  To be continued...

“John and I are so happy to announce that we are pregnant,” she said. “As many of you know, we’ve been trying to have a baby for a while now. It hasn’t been easy, but we kept trying because we can’t wait to bring our first child into the world and grow our family. We’re so excited that it’s finally happening.

Teigen has been candid about her struggles with getting pregnant. “John and I were having trouble,” she said during an interview on her daytime talk show “FABlife.” “We would have had kids five, six years ago if it had happened. But, my gosh, it’s been a process.”
While they prepare for their new addition, the parents-to-be are developing a romantic comedy for ABC called “Ordinary People,” which is based loosely on their relationship.
Congratulations to the happy couple!


Kanye West is going to Hollywood. Yeezus himself made a surprise appearance during auditions for the final season of “American Idol” on Saturday. While in San Francisco for a Democratic National Committee fundraiser, ‘Ye surprised judges Jennifer Lopez, Harry Connick, Jr. and Keith Urban, who were holding auditions for the show.

“Is that Kanye West?” said a shocked J.Lo as the rapper entered the room.
He went on to impress the judges by performing “Gold Digger,” complete with the lyrics, “My psychic told me she’ll have an ass like Serena, Trina, Jennifer Lopez,” and J.Lo sang right along.
Kim Kardashian waited outside the room and greeted her husband who proudly showed off his ticket. “see u in Hollywood @kanyewest (you too @KimKardashian) #idolauditions,” tweeted Ryan Seacrest.

Earlier in the day, Kanye performed a nearly hour-long set in front of President Obama at a fundraiser for the Democratic National Committee at The Warfield. While there, he presented Obama with a couple pairs of Yeezy Boosts, and in return, Obama gave him some pointers for his 2020 White House run.
“But in case Kanye’s serious about this whole POTUS thing, or as he calls it, Peezy, I do have advice for him,” said Obama. “First of all, you gotta spend a lot of time with some strange characters who behave like they’re on a reality TV show.”
He added, “Do you really think that this country’s going to elect a black guy from the South Side of Chicago with a funny name to be President of the United States? That’s cray!”
