Honeeeeey. Beyoncé was snatched and Spanx'd to perfection at last night's Sports Illustrated show and probably had everybody in the place ready to risk it all. Watch her surprise Muhammad Ali Award recipient Colin Kaepernick inside...

Just when we thought the highlight of Tuesday night's Sports Illustrated Sportsperson of the Year show would be Colin Kaepernick receiving the Muhammad Ali Legacy Award, Bey was like "nah, hold my beer."

The Lemonade queen floated all her cake & thickness into the Barclays Center to present the Award to Colin, and had us reserving a damn bike at Soul Cycle within minutes.

She rocked a mini, curve hugging LaQuan Smith dress for the occasion, and delivered her praises for the people's champ.  Check it:

Meghan Markle’s Engagement Is Not A Victory For Black Women

Welp! Black folks got about a week to be happy about biracial Meghan Markle’s swirl-gagement to Prince Harry before the bubble bursting memes and editorials have begun picking the social impact of the pairing to pieces.

Eurweb published a scathing editorial by comedian Cory Haywood that begins:

*Sisters, don’t get too excited about Meghan Markle‘s engagement to Prince Harry (or whatever the hell that boy’s name is). This “historic” piece of news doesn’t even remotely count as a victory for black people or black women. Period.

Sisters, I can hear ya’ll fools right now – “I’m not wasting my time with average ni**as. I deserve to be with a prince so that I can be treated like a princess.”

Ha! I laugh at you ignorant hoes. “Coming to America” was a movie.
That sh** ain’t happening to you.

Ignorant hoes though? BRUH. Haywood goes on to argue that Markle’s indistinguishable features made her prime for the Prince’s pickings, traits that most black women can’t claim. He also says that Markle’s marriage is only possible because Prince Harry is unlikely to inherit the throne anyway. Haywood also decries The Root’s decision to declare the engagement “black girl magic”

So let me get this straight, it’s just a good ol’ ni*ga time when two black people get married, but when a black girl wrangles a White Prince, it’s “magic”. Ni**a what!

We see where he’s going and it’s part of why we try to celebrate Black love everywhere we see it, but Haywood stumbles into murky territory when he attacks the black community’s willingness to embrace the success of mixed race people as “black success”:

More importantly, why is it that every time a half-breed stumbles upon good fortune or success, the entire black community rejoices and lives vicariously through that person (as if his or her family tree is entirely Negro)? Are we that desperate for a win?

Half-breed is a HORRIBLE term. Haywood is a comedian but it seems a** backwards to make an argument like his using the oppressor’s terminology.

That part aside, do you think that Haywood is right to be critical of the royal engagement being upheld as “black girl magic” or even something meant to inspire “hope” for black women?

We saw this Good Morning America headline as well and definitely gave it the side eye. Amanda Seales does a pretty good breakdown here on IG:

So what do you think? How did you respond to Meghan Markle’s engagement to Prince Harry? Is it a victory for black women? Black people? Biracial women? History? Or JUST Meghan Markle and Prince Harry?

Do you agree with Cory Haywood that some black women have taken the engagement news too far?

Juliet Huddy Says Donald Trump Tried To Kiss Her

A former Fox News anchor is putting the deplorable dorito dust in chief on blast. Juliet Huddy recently revealed that Trump tried to kiss her in an elevator shorlty after her married White House hostage First Lady Melania Trump.

Huddy relayed the story on “Mornin!!! with Bill Schulz” on compoundmedia.com and dished on the moment that p**y grabbing Sunkist Stalin thought he had a chance.

“He took me for lunch at Trump Tower, just us two. He said goodbye to me in an elevator while his security guy was there, rather than kiss me on the cheek he leaned in to kiss me on the lips,” said Huddy according to PageSix.

“I wasn’t offended, I was kind of like, ‘Oh my god’.” She said she went to meet a friend and Trump then invited them both back to see “The Apprentice” set, “And everything was copacetic after that.”

You weren’t offended Juliet? After that deplorable dustbin put himself THAT close to your face? Psssh please.

Huddy also added that Trump later appeared on her Fox News chat and joked about her giving him the Mutumbo finger;

“I hit on her but she blew me off,” said Cheeto Cretin.

Huddy also allegedly received a settlement after she made a complaint against Bill O’Reilly.

Comedian Hannibel Buress just became content of what we're sure will be his own next stand up act.  Watch how his confrontation with cops in Miami went left and landed him in jail early this morning inside...

 photo DQtMrTNW4AA_x52_zps9vsgnvue.jpg

After rising to fame after bringing those Bill Cosby drugging rumors to light (again) during his comedy routine, Hannibal Buress is now caught up in his own drama.

The comedian/actor was seen outside in the Miami streets around 2AM getting hemmed up by police, and can be seen repeatedly asking them what he's being detained for.

The confrontation became more heated, and he was physically pushed into a police car when he refused to get in himself.

Interestingly, the cops told him he was being arrested for "trespassing," but TMZ was told by a jail source that he was booked for "disorderly intoxication."

Hmmm.  Did the cops simply not have probable cause to cuff him and noticed he seemingly had a drinky drink and slapped that charge on his record?  You can watch a couple videos taken by eyewitnesses on the scene below:

 

After posting a $500 bond, he was released at 6AM this morning.

City councilwoman turned the 60th mayor of Atlanta. What a story for Keisha Lance Bottoms! While her white opponent remains salty and big mad, the new mayor's election afterparty was LIT. We've got it all inside, plus a news anchor who had the classiest clapback for a racist constituent...

 photo Keisha-Lance-Bottoms_Atlanta0071-e1476735812547_zpsu7bo4xj7.jpg

Come all the way thru black girl political magic! 

Keisha Lance Bottoms, who also has mom, wife, FAMU alum, lawyer and member of Delta Sigma Theta on her list of fabulous assets, is officially the next mayor of the 9th largest city in America.  And that's a big freakin' deal.

 photo Bottoms_Family_Photo_zpsw8pilf3i.jpg

The former City Councilwoman will take the seat of Kasim Reed who has just finished out his final term, and it was definitely a fight to the end.

Lance Bottoms is a Democrat who seemed like a shoe-in for the job going up against Mary Norman, a white independent who Keisha claimed had plenty of Republican values that simply aren't good for the city.  Thanks to a low voter turnout and arguably, gentrification, Keisha only won by 759 votes!  It came down to the wire with a mere 92,000

Plenty of news publications claim the race is too close to call, but Lance Bottoms has already rightfully declared herself the city's new leader.  Naturally, her opponent is vowing to request a recount.  Something she also did when she lost to Mayor Reed years ago.

After getting the support of outgoing Mayor Reed, US Senators Cory Booker & Kamala Harris and tons of celebs and local leaders (former black female Mayor of Atlanta Shirley Franklin interestingly supported her opponent), Lance Bottoms has seemingly won by a less than 1% margin.  Only a little more than 92,000 people voted in a city comprised of almost half a million people.  Majority of the citizens are people of color and Democrat, so why is it so close?

 

“Atlanta, Georgia, nationally you are a symbol for Black people”. #killermike said a whole word in that first statement. We (in Atlanta) don’t know how privileged we are to be raised, employed, socialized, and educated by our own. OUR OWN! Friends have visited and been in awe with the Blackness of Edgewood on a Friday night. Some have relocated from other states claiming to never leave. Others make it a point to visit multiple times a year. My father who was raised in little ole Ridgeland, SC said he couldn’t believe the level of Black people in Atlanta when he first visited in the 90s. His first time being employed by a Black company helped him achieve his goal of running the largest rail yard in Georgia. And I quote “Aside from my great grandfather I never saw a Black man in charge of a company until I moved to Atlanta. I knew one day I could be in charge too.” I’ve been in Texas for about 4 months now and there is a stark difference between being a MAJORITY in Atlanta and just another number here in TX. BIG DIFFERENCE. So, y’all voting today, or nah? #vote #atlanta #keishalancebottoms

A post shared by Breian Be Everywhere (@breian_sb) on

 

If you ask Killer Mike, it's due to the different type of citizen living in ATL now.  It could also be linked to gentrification inflating housing costs and pushing out the blacks.  The number of blacks in the city has indeed dropped over the years and the number of white citizens has risen exponentially.

Lance Bottoms touched on the changes she's ready to make during her speech Tuesday night, and also as part of her platform.

And this swag & surf turn-up:

Race remained an obvious element to this election, and as usual, certain white folks want to act like the issue doesn't exist. So when CBS news anchor Sharon Reed got called the N-word by a viewer, all for speaking on the issue, she had the classiest clapback that has now gone viral. Check it:

Congrats to Keisha Lance Bottoms on her (almost official) win!

They told us ish goes down when there's a billion dollars in an elevator, so why not give the people a peek at it for real for real? 

For Jay-Z's birthday Monday night, he and wife Beyonce hit the New York streets.  But before they hopped in the car, they posed it up inside a movie theater elevator and insisted the paps got the shot:

The YBF ladies are SLAYING the red carpet at several events. Peep flicks of Zendaya, Amber Riley, Kerry Washington, Erykah Badu and several more inside…

When FAB black chicks slay together!

Zendaya and Amber Riley were all smiles on the red carpet at the 63rd London Evening Standard Theatre Awards that went down at the Theatre Royal Drury Lane. And Amber came out a winner.

The 31-year-old actress won the award for Best Musical Performance for her role as Effie in Dreamgirls. She has been slaying the London production; so much so, her role has been extended through June 2, 2018. Woot! Keep killing it Amber.

Daya, slaying in an Ellie Saab ensemble and Djula jewels, was tapped to present Amber her award.

"I started my year singing at the evening standard awards. I was terrified. In a room filled with people I had long admired. A year later, I was nominated and then I won. My God is greater. Thank you Evening Standard. This will be a constant reminder to keep my dreams in front of me, to stay focused, and work harder!," Amber gushed about her win on Instagram.

Congrats Amber!

Loving actress Ruth Negga also popped up on the carpet in all red.

At another event across the pond...

Zendaya switched up her fair into a blonde pixie cut to attend The British Fashion Awards 2017 held at Royal Albert Hall. We can’t even front, the Disney starlet normally slays a red carpet look, but this one is not one of our faves.

Something is just...off with this look.

 photo FAWON30.jpg

Erykah Badu popped up on the scene showing off her eclectic style. We have to honest here as well, we're not feeling the Medusa style.

 photo FAWON15.jpg

 

Runway stunna Naomi Campbell stepped out on the scene to show support of her friend/stylist Azzedine Alaïa, rocking one of his designs. On Instagram, she showered Azzedine with love, writing:

"Everyone in this room knows that Azzedine was able to transform a woman’s body into something special; make you look great and still like a woman. He captured the essence of femininity. But beyond his work as a designer, from the second day I met him, he became my papa. He was the most generous, kind, compassionate and humble man I have ever known, with a mischievous sense of humour in the glint of his eye, and he filled my life - and the lives of the women on this stage, and all of you in the room who met him - with light and joy. I moved into his home at 16 and he opened my eyes to the world: to artists, art and design, architecture, French and Tunisian culture. How blessed was I to have papa show me these different worlds?"

 photo FAWON23.jpg

And we see where Naomi gets her good looks from. Her 66-year-old mother Valerie Morris. Black don't crack!

More models on the red carpet:

 photo FAWON20.jpg

Model Winnie Harlow did NOT come to play. She slayed in this mint green Brandon Maxwell number like only she can. And threw in some leg action.

 photo FAWON7.jpg

Model Jourdan Dunn was all about the leg action in a bold orange Versace dress and she killed it.

Model/pagaent queen Halima Aden struck a few poses on the carpet as well.

 

Back on this side of the pond...

Kerry Washington was a breath of fresh air as she snapped it up on the carpet at the 2018 Breakthrough Prize held at NASA Ames Research Center in Mountain View, California.

In a recent episode of "Chelsea", the "Scandal" star revealed before she got the role of Olivia Pope, she was considering leaving the acting world to teach yoga. Her agent just so happened to send her the script, which she felt was written just for her. She ended up competing against 12 other actresses, met with Shonda Rhimes and nailed it.  Despite the network originally wanting to cast Connie Britton. Nice!

Also at the event...

Chad Johnson’s Baby Mother Shares Family Photos

Chad Johnson is a proud dad and he’s got the precious family photos to prove it. The footballer formerly known as Ochocinco recently posed for some uber cute Johnson family pictures that were surprisingly not shared by him.

Instead, they were sent out by Lexi Elaine, the woman he quietly welcomed a baby girl with in 2016.

Their adorable daughter Cheyenne can be seen being held up by one of her brothers in the Johnson family pics.

Instagram Photo

Unfortunately for Lexi a.k.a Seksi Leksi, some people are BIG mad that she shared the wholesome photos before Ochocinco did. Furthermore, some people are questioning why Johnson’s other baby girl wasn’t present in the pics.

Instagram Photo
If you can remember Chad previously dated Crystal Bates a.k.a Barbie Bates and welcomed a baby girl with her in 2015. They broke up however in March of this year and their daughter Kennedi is nowhere to be found in the photos.
Instagram Photo

Welp. We exclusively reported that back in March Chad was ordered to pay Lexi child support and legal fees.

Despite the drama, Chad’s children are uber precious—congrats proud papa!

Woman Says She Bit Off A Testicle In Self Defense, Court Says Otherwise

A woman bit off her ex-boyfriend’s testicle after he refused to have a threesome with her, according to new reports. 43-year-old Nunzia Del Viscio claims that she was acting in self-defense when she bit off a piece of her ex’s manhood, but a court still found her guilty of assault and ordered her to pay a $670 compensation, Scottish outlet STV reported.

Del Viscio had been out partying — consuming cocaine and a cocktail of other drugs — with her former boyfriend, Marcello Palma, before returning with him to a friend’s apartment, the outlet reported. After their pals went to bed, she allegedly came into her ex’s room naked and demanded a threesome with her former lover.When he said no, she began destroying the bedroom and when Palma insisted that she leave, that’s when the argument got intensified.

Palma said, “We were insulting each other and she came against me and bit my left testicle. I threw two or three punches and had a finger in her eye to push her away. She drew her head back and my testicle came out.” Cops found Del Viscio in the apartment with blood on her teeth — as well as injuries to her eyes and bruising to her face. Her ex admitted to causing her injuries, but also pleaded self defense.

 

In addition to her $670 fine, Del Viscio was ordered to stay home between 10 a.m. and 6 p.m. for 6 months.
