Usher Raymond was spotted taking his adorable sons, Usher V (Cinco), 3, and Naviyd, 2, for a stroll through New York City this afternoon. The boys' mom is Usher's former stylist Tameka Foster-Glover.


Miami Heat superstar Dwyane Wade teamed up with Swizz luxury watch maker Hublot for a limited edition watch, that he named King Power. Wade unveiled his Hublot King Power timepiece in Beijing, China yesterday. The All-Star was also in Beijing to meet the "One Million Dollar RMB Charity Basketball Challenge". The challenge for Wade was to score a maximum number of baskets, each corresponding to a sum of money ($50K, $100K etc.) The proceeds benefited Hublot's One Foundation and Wade's World Foundation.

Queen Latifah, who is slowly adapting to life outside the closet, recently sat down with Sister2Sister magazine for an in-depth interview.

The Queen discussed what she looks for in a woman, and we're not surprised to learn that she prefers her women covered up.

“I just like ladies who have class. Period," she said, "and if it’s ‘T and A’ you’re sellin,’ that’s fine, as long as that’s what you’re selling. But you don’t have to show everything, you know?"

She added:

"You can hold some back and just be yourself and let your personality shine and let your individuality show. To me, that’s sexier. A confident woman is a sexy woman, in my opinion. And I think guys find that to be the same way.”

Rapper 50 Cent burst onto the rap scene in a blaze of glory in 2003, with the Blessings of Eminem and Dr. Dre. It's amazing how money, and a huge unchecked ego, can destroy a man's creativity. This latest garbage off his upcoming album was actually leaked -- probably by Fiddy himself. When no one seemed to notice the leak, 50 made a lot of noise about leaking Dr. Dre’s Detox track “Psycho”, which got everyone's attention.

On this pathetic track, 50 brags about his money, jewelry and million dollar cars backed up by an annoying Garage Band beat. "I'm On It" is a classic example of what happens when artists lose their hunger for their craft.

Hey Sandra,

My name is Aisha Nicole. First off let me say I love your blog and read it every morning and at lunch time while at work :) We chat sometimes on twitter. I would love to be featured on the Morning Glory post! I work full time in Corporate America at a Brokerage Firm however my passion is modeling. I am a print model from Chicago looking to take over the game one photo at a time. Im considered to be curvy in the modeling world even though Im only a size 8, its hard to get signed if you're not a size 0 or size 12..... I feel I represent the everyday woman. Also it is extremely hard not to be typecast as a Video vixen or Glamour model if you are a little thick.

Im working on creating a better image for women of color who are curvy. We are more than our hips and thighs. I plan to use my "Face" to get ahead and not my ass.....even though that's great too. I have dreams of gracing the covers of top beauty mags like Vogue or Harper's Bazaar. What ever happened to showcasing garments, hair and beauty products ? Thank you for your consideration.

The Golden State Warriors' star guard Stephen "Steph" Curry is off the market. Well, he's been off the market for years now, but he finally made it official when he married his childhood sweetheart, Ayesha Alexander, this past Saturday in Charlotte, North Carolina.

According to Jill, the star crossed couple met in a church youth group when they were teenagers (he was 15 and she, 14).

Ayesha, who carefully documented their decade long relationship on so the groupies would know he's taken -- couldn't contain her excitement as the big day approached.

You know it's true love because the Dopamine rush wore off years ago. Congrats to the happy couple!

Hey, Sandra,

I'm a LOYAL reader of your blog, you have me cracking up with your comments. When I'm down I can ALWAYS count on reading your blog to lift me up.

I can't register with your site because registration is closed but oh well. So I can never comment on some of your posts, but any who.

Just wanted to submit some morning wood for you. This is a friend of mine named David Oliver he's a 2008 Olympic bronze medalist for track and field.

He's such a sweetie too. Very humble and you would think as fine as he is he would be stuck on himself. Not at all. All around great guy.

Love ya Sandra,

All of a sudden Beyonce and Kelly Rowland are the best of friends -- especially now that Kelly's album sold only 75K in the first week. It's obvious that the insecure Bey no longer sees Kels as a threat, so it's all good.

It's hard to imagine Bey smiling all in KellyRo's face if Kel's album, Here I Am, had outsold hers. Beyonce and Kelly Rowland were photographed on the video set of Beyonce's new song "Party" featuring Andre 3000 (not pictured) and Kanye West (not pictured) which was shot in New York City last night.
