Lupita Is People’s Most Beautiful Woman
It seems to be that 2014 is the year of Lupita Nyong’o, who was named People’s “Most Beautiful Woman,” this past week. The “12 Years a Slave” actress says she would have “never dreamed” about being on the cover as this was a major shock for her. Growing up, her perception of beauty only revolved around women she saw on television with light skin and long hair. It wasn’t until Nyong’o’s mother helped her realize her own true beauty, that she realized that she, too, was beautiful.
Other stars on People’s list include actresses Jenna Dewan-Tatum, “The Mindy Project”’s very own Mindy Kaling, “Scandal”’s leading lady Kerry Washington and Gabrielle Union who says she is “focused more about inner beauty.”
August Alsina says a “Testimony” On BET’s “106”
When August Alsina tells you not to ask him anything before he gets on camera, you better listen! The New Orlean R&B singer recently appeared on BET’s “106 & Park” to promote his new album “Testimony” out in stores this week. Everything was going well until co-host Keisha Chante asked Alsina if there would ever be a reunion between him and former friend Trey Songz. Alsina, not a wanting to address his beef with the R&B singer, responded by saying, “I told y’all we weren’t going to talk about this sh*t backstage,” while quickly changing the subject by yelling into the audience for fans to get his new album.
Aside from this rocky interview, his album is doing pretty well in stores debuting at no. 2 on Billboard’s top 200 in its first week. While you won’t be seeing any features from Trey Songz, Alsina does collaborate with hip-hop’s favorites, Rick Ross, Fabulous and “All Gold Everything’s,” Trinidad James.
