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.

It goes down in the video. Yo Gotti enlists a star-studded cast for his “Down in the DM” visual and, of course, it’s all about racy direct messages.

CeeLo Green, Machine Gun Kelly, YG, Rae Sremmurd, and Snapchat superstar DJ Khaled make cameos in the clip, which is surprisingly all about marriage. The vid takes us from a raunchy bachelor party to the actual wedding ceremony, all along showing us how tempting a DM can be for a bride and groom, even on the day they tie the knot.

Earlier today, Gotti debuted the official remix featuring Nicki Minaj, which appears on his new album The Art of the Hustle, due Feb. 19. The 15-song set also includes appearances from Lil Wayne, 2 Chainz, Pusha T, Future, Timbaland, K. Michelle, and E-40.

Gaga is going to the Super Bowl. While Beyoncé and Coldplay gear up for their halftime performance on Sunday, Lady Gaga will have different duties for the big game.

Before the Carolina Panthers face off against the Denver Broncos, the pop superstar will take the field at Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, Calif. to sing “The Star-Spangled Banner.” She will be accompanied by Oscar-winning actress Marlee Matlin, who’s slated to perform in American Sign Language, according to the AP.

Gaga, who earned a Golden Globe for her work in “American Horror Story: Hotel,” joins a long list of esteemed artists who have had the same honor, including Alicia Keys, Christina Aguilera, Mariah Carey, and Whitney Houston.
Following Super Bowl 50, Gaga will head to L.A. to pay tribute to David Bowie at the Grammys on Feb. 15. She is also scheduled to perform her Academy Award-nominated song “Til It Happens to You” from The Hunting Ground at the 88th Oscars on Feb. 28.

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!
