The cover, beautifully photographed by Annie Leibovitz, features black stars who are not quite household names in mainstream America, but their faces are easily recognizable.

Jordan (Fruitvale Station), Naomie Harris (Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom), Brie Larson (Short Term 12), Chadwick Boseman (42), Margot Robbie (The Wolf of Wall Street), and Léa Seydoux (Blue Is the Warmest Color).

Ex-convict Apollo Nida seems to be taking his latest brush with the law lightly.
Nida, 35, who is married to local attorney and reality TV star Pheadra Parks, 44, was arrested last week and charged with bank fraud and identity theft. Nida spent 5 years in state prison — from 2004 through 2009 — for his role in an auto title theft ring.
Facing multiple serious federal charges that could land him in federal prison, Nida seems to be taking it all in stride.
Disgraced singer Beyonce Knowles-Carter covers US Weekly magazine’s annual ‘The Grammy Issue’. The 33-year-old singer was slammed by outraged readers of UK’s Metro newspaper who objected to her raunchy strip tease performance during the 2014 Grammy Awards.

I totally agree with a NY Post writer who slammed Jay Z for greenlighting his wife Beyonce’s disgraceful strip tease routine during the 2014 Grammy Awards. Beyonce is a grown woman who should have known better. If she really is such a talented performer, she failed to convince millions of viewers who tuned in to see a show, not a lap dance. Then Jay Z comes out onstage wearing a tuxedo to dance with his wife who is barely dressed. They both looked like idiots.
NY Post writer Naomi Schaefer Riley summed it up best when she wrote: “What do you call a man who stands there smiling and singing as his scantily clad wife straddles a chair and shakes her rear end for other men’s titillation?”
Kelly Rowland joined socialite, reality TV star, entrepreneur and now noted book author La La Anthony on stage at La La’s book signing and discussion of her new book, ‘The Love Playbook’ at Barnes & Noble book store in NYC on Tuesday.
