Actor Larenz Tate recently spoke about raising Black sons in America. Tate and his wife of 14 years, Tomasina Tate, share three sons" Myles, 14, Zander, 12, and 6-year-old Zion.

During an appearance on TV One's UNCENSORED, Tate said his acting career has given his family a luxurious lifestyle, but he and Tomasina make sure their sons know that, despite their money, life is rough for a Black man in America.

Tate said he and his wife tell their sons that Black boys are held to different standards than males who don't look like them.

"In this society, you as a young Black boy and how you are seen; you're gonna have great times, you're gonna have highs and lows," he said. "You're gonna have missteps, but understand with your missteps come consequences and your consequences are always gonna be more severe than those who don't look like you. It is what it is and we have seen that firsthand."

Tate said he doesn't want his boys to stop "living up to their full potential."

"So they understand, and I'll say don't let that reality stop you from being the best version of who you are and living up to your full potential, or feeling like you're boxed in, you can't do anything, you can’t breathe. Just understand how it goes. If you get stopped [by police], it's gonna be different for you than a kid who doesn't look like you."

Franchell "Frenchie" Davis sparked debate on social media with a Facebook post calling out our obsession with colorism.

"Ya'll would never exalt and celebrate black women with dark skin and wide noses for being loud and opinionated and obnoxious, as needed," she wrote. "Not the way y'all exalt the Angela Rye's and Amanda Seales' of the world."

WENN/Avalon

"They get to be loud and outspoken and angry without being called bitter. And in these present times, I need the actual black women of lighter hue, who are beneficiaries of this f**k sh*t to do a better job at speaking out on and actively combatting it because I'm side eyeing everybody now."

Frenchie, 41, is best known as a popular contestant on the singing competition show American Idol in 2003.

She went on to perform in Rent on Broadway for 4 years and she was a contestant on the first season of The Voice.

Monday, September 7, marked 24 years since American rapper Tupac Amaru Shakur, born Lesane Parish Crooks, was shot multiple times by a gang member in a drive-by shooting in Las Vegas.

Tupac, stylized 2Pac, died on September 13, 1996 in a Las Vegas hospital. He was 25 years old.

WENN.com

Fans remembered Tupac on the anniversary of his death on social media Monday. Many posted photos and lyrics in tribute of the fallen warrior. He is pictured above with his younger step sister Sekyiwa "Set" Shakur and god brother, rapper Yaki Kadafi, born Yafeu Akiyele Fula, who was accidentally shot in the head in 1996 at age 19.

WENN.com

Tupac launched his rap career after moving from New York City to San Francisco Bay Area in 1988. He had achieved modest success by the time he released his debut album 2Pacalypse Now in 1991.

Tupac was one of the pioneers of so-called gangsta rap that glorifies gang culture, sexual promiscuity, misogynistic lyrics, drug culture, sexism, and anti-homosexuality.

Gangsta rap would go on to have a negative impact on young Black boys who quoted Tupac's lyrics that promoted gang violence and degraded women.

Supplied by WENN.com

Understanding his impact on young Black youth, Tupac took his music in a different direction with the release of Me Against the World in 1995.

It was his third studio album and was considered his most introspective and thought-provoking work.

Supplied by WENN.com

The album included the hits "So Many Tears", "Temptations" and "Dear Mama," in tribute to his mother, Afeni Shakur, who died of a heart attack in 2016 at age 69.

Tupac prophesied his own death in the 2nd track off the album, titled "If I Die 2Nite."

    Going insane, never die, I live eternal, who shall I fear?
    Don't shed a tear for me, ni**a, I ain't happy here
    I hope they bury me and send me to my rest
    Headlines reading 'Murdered to death', my last breath.

Singer Teyana Taylor gave birth to her second child, a sweet baby girl named Rue Rose.

The 29-year-old gave birth on Sunday morning at home in her bathroom -- the morning after her star-studded baby shower in Atlanta, Ga.

Her husband, NBA star Iman Shumpert confirmed in an Instagram post.

Thaddaeus McAdams @KeepitExclusive

"At 3:28 am on Sept 6th 2020 Rue Rose decided that the baby shower thrown for her and mommy was too lit. She didn't make the party but she managed to make the next day her birthdate!!!" Iman posted.

The girl dad added: "Now... when we buy homes, we always find a bathroom with great energy... but not in a million years would you be able to tell me we'd deliver both of our daughters in a bathroom without the assistance of a hospital!

"Our newest edition entered the world in the water and came out looking around and ready to explore! A healthy child. A little sister. Another daughter. Black love wins... again. Welcome babygirl... we love you!”

Teyana reposted Iman's post and added, "We love you Rue, welcome baby girl @babyruerose," along with a bunch of emojis.

Teyana's fans speculated about the meaning behind the baby's name.

"Rue" in French means street or lane. And in English literature, "rue" means to express sorrow or regret, such as in the sentence: "I rue the day he cheated on me."

Rue may be short for ruby or slang for "rouge", the color of cosmetics such as the red lipstick her mom favors.

The couple is also parents to four-year-old daughter Iman Shumpert Jr.

Former NBA star Stephon Marbury (left) is not a fan of fellow Brooklyn native Jay Z.

In a recent interview, Marbury (pictured in 2001 with his daughter, Xaviera) explained his ongoing beef with the husband of Beyonce Knowles.

In an interview with Heavy.com, Marbury, 43, said Jay Z sold drugs to pregnant women and created crack babies who are causing most of the crime in the inner cities.

Marbury is baffled that the aging rapper was never forced to take responsibility for his past behavior.

"I look at Jay-Z and I say, 'Wow, here you are trying to be something that you're not. You're not an advocate for Black people, you sold drugs to Black people and you rapped about it and talked about it.

"How do you do that? Like, I'm trying to figure that part out; like, you can't make that right. This ain't snitching, this ain't telling on nobody, you told on yourself already... You sold drugs to people where you're from Jay-Z in Brooklyn in Marcy [Projects], you got them on crack — whatever it is cocaine whatever it is that you were selling to them. Whatever you say you was ‘cooking up’, that’s what you did."

Some say Jay Z redeemed himself when he married then-pop superstar Beyonce. The 50-year-old rap mogul carefully cultivated his public image by donating to charitable causes and speaking out against police brutality and the criminal justice system.

But Marbury says Jay Z is a fraud masquerading as the Black community's savior.

"So now, you got your people high, you sold drugs to people that was pregnant now you created crack babies — these same babies that are going out killing grandparents … I'm confused. But that's what it is. That's what happened."

Why does Marbury harbor so much hate for Jay Z? He hints that Jay Z may have set him up to get robbed. Two gunmen stole his $150,000 diamond studded chain while his car was stopped at a traffic light.

Jay Z later dissed Marbury in a track on the Bad Boys II soundtrack in 2003, titled "La-La-La (Excuse Me Miss Again)."

The track - a remix to Jay Z's "Excuse Me Miss" - includes the lyrics:

"Pink diamond necklace, strawberry wrist/Please excuse yourself, you're very sick/Don't confuse me with Marbury out this bi***/Run up on me at the light, you could lose your life."

Marbury recalls where he was the first time he heard the track.

"I was in Atlanta,” he told Brandon 'Scoop B' Robinson. "I was in Atlanta inside of a club and when I heard it, I knew exactly what it was about."

The 22-year-old rapper, who is best known for his hit "Watch Me (Whip/Nae Nae)", was arrested after he allegedly entered a random home in the Los Angeles area wielding a hatchet, ABC 7 reports.

He was tackled to the floor by the home's occupants, but he escaped and was caught by police about 2 blocks away.

According to gossipmongers, Silentó went into the home in search of his girlfriend who leaked a vulgar image of him online.

Silentó, real name Richard Hawk, trended online after the photo went viral on Twitter.com. The photo was originally posted in a private sub on Reddit.com titled Silentó bussy. "Bussy" is a colloquial term for "boy pu**y."

The graphic image shows a young man snapping a graphic selfie after engaging in a tryst with another man.

But the person in the photo is not Silentó.

Da Don (the p0rn star) is a 26-year-old male who earns a living posting p0rnograpic material to sites like OnlyFans.

Although he is 26, he looks like a teenager being sexually abused by grown men in videos.

Da Don's filthy images and videos are easily accessible to children on Twitter.com.

Kanye West reportedly splashed out a lot of cash on his struggling presidential campaign.

The 43-year-old mega producer and fashion mogul shelled out almost $6 million out of his own pocket to finance his presidential campaign, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The majority of the funds came from a personal loan he made to his campaign, according to a finance report that was filed with the Federal Election Commission on Friday.

The "Gold Digger" rapper has spent $5.86 million so far, with most of that money going toward consultation and other fees. He apparently loaned his own campaign more than $6.7 million during July and August.

Other sources of income reveal that Kanye has received small donations from other people supporting his bid for the Oval Office.

The hip-hop star's presence in the race has proven controversial, with Democratic Party officials accusing him of running as a "spoiler candidate" to siphon votes away from their nominee, former Vice President Joe Biden.

The internet is talking about Ayesha Curry grooming her husband Stephen Curry to be a gangsta thug.

According to the internet, Steph's dominant wife Ayesha totally rules him and their household. He doesn't appear to have the manly fortitude to tell his wife to back off and let him be the man and the head of their household.

In a recent video, Young Men's Daily Red Pill explains why Ayesha is grooming Steph to be the bad boy thug she never had.

"She's tired of Steph being the nice guy... She's trying to bring out the gangsta in Steph Curry before she cheats on him."

If you recall, Ayesha whined that she doesn't get enough male attention in her private messages as Steph receives from women in his direct messages on Instagram (Ayesha controls Steph's social media accounts).

YMDRP theorizes that Ayesha never had the chance to go through her "h*e phase" - so she's doing it now by undergoing plastic surgery and posting Thot pictures on the 'Gram.

He says women like Ayesha and Ciara Wilson are trying to groom their good men to be the bad boys they really want in their beds.

What do you think?

Christian Walker ripped Sen. Kamala Harris in a new video produced by the Log Cabin Republicans, a conservative LGBT advocacy group.

Christian, son of NFL legend Herschel Walker, isn't impressed with Harris as Joe Biden's vice president running mate.

"That VP is going to keep you on the victimhood plantation," he said. "She's going to give you an extra welfare check, and you're not going to be able to support yourself. They're going to entice you to divorce each other."

Christian also had a strong message for criminals who break the law and refuse to follow directions from the police.

"You don't get to choose when you get arrested. So, if you’re not in the mood, you still have to follow directions. If you're innocent, you still have to follow directions.... Criminals or people who are possibly guilty of a crime - even if you're innocent, you still have to follow the law. Listen to authority. Cops are the authority.

“We don't have a bad cop problem, sweetie. We have a respect authority problem. We have a lot of men - a lot of grown men who can't listen to directions. Kindergarteners can listen to directions from teachers... Grown men - I don't feel bad if you can't listen to a cop. Follow directions and your life won't be in danger. I'm over you."

Jane Fonda regrets turning down some sexual healing from R&B crooner Marvin Gaye after he flirted with her.

"He wanted to and I didn't," the 82-year-old actress and former activist told Maureen O'Dowd during a Q&A with The New York Times.

The two women discussed the famous men she's known over the decades, as well as the one that got away.

O'Dowd began the "confirm or deny" segment of the interview by suggesting Fonda's greatest regret was that she never had sex with Marxist Che Guevara, to which the star responded, "No, I don't think about him. Who I do think about, and what is a great regret is Marvin Gaye."

"He wanted to and I didn't," Fonda explained. "I was married to Tom [Hayden]. I was meeting a lot of performers to try to do concerts for Tom and the woman who was helping me do that introduced me to Marvin Gaye."

When asked if Gaye's pickup line included "Sexual Healing," Fonda said, "I needed some but he didn't say that, no."

After Gaye passed away in 1984, Fonda discovered that he'd kept a picture of her on his refrigerator door.

Fonda has been married three times. Her final marriage - to Atlanta media mogul Ted Turner - ended in divorce in 2001.

Dr. Dre's estranged wife Nicole Young is demanding almost $2 million a month in temporary spousal support to maintain the life of caviar and champagne that she has grown accustomed to as the wife of a billionaire mogul.

Young filed court documents detailing her monthly expenses to justify the excessive amount of cash sh's asking for as their divorce battle continues.

Judy Eddy/WENN.com

According to TMZ.com, 50-year-old mother-of-two is requesting $1,936,399 per month in spousal support, in addition to $5 million to cover her legal fees.

It seems Young and her legal team have chosen to ignore the iron-clad prenuptial agreement Dre has in place.

"Dre's going to push back, arguing Nicole doesn't need anywhere close to that amount since her lifestyle hasn't changed," a source told TMZ. "Nicole, on the other hand, will argue she doesn't want to depend on Dre paying all the bills ... thus the need for temporary support."

Young filed for divorce from the rap mogul, real name Andre Romelle Young, in June after 24 years of marriage.

Since her filing, the former couple have clashed over the validity of their prenup agreement, with Young confirming that while she signed the document, Dre ripped it up in front of her as a gesture of his love for her at the time.

Unfortunately, Young didn't pick up the shredded pieces for safe keeping.

Iyanna 'Yaya' Mayweather, daughter of champion pugilist Floyd Mayweather Jr., is allegedly pregnant with rapper NBA YoungBoy's eighth child.

On Wednesday, 2 videos surfaced online featuring "receipts" showing the 20-year-old socialite with a very noticeable baby bump.

One of the videos was supposedly posted by a close friend of Yaya's. In the video, two of Yaya's friends are showing off their designer shoes, and Yaya can be seen in the background dressed in all black with a noticeable belly bump.

The person who recorded the video jokingly apologized for putting Yaya on blast "accidentally on purpose."

Another video shows Yaya walking with a friend in a mall. Once again she is dressed in all black. Her baggy garments is suggestive of maternity wear.

The person filming yells: "[Yaya] Mayweather, and she pregnant than a mothaf***a. NBA YoungBoy you f**ing know better."

Chelsea Lauren/Getty Images

Yaya's mother, Melissia Brim, appears to confirm the pregnancy by posting a congratulatory message on social media: "grand baby."

YoungBoy, 20, is rumored to have two women knocked up at the same time. In an Instagram post, he was forced to clarify how many children he has outside the womb and how many are on the way.

Rick Kern/WireImage

"Aye look, I got four little boys, right? Matter fact, one of their birthdays is today. I got four little boys and I got one daughter, her name is Armani. I got another daughter on the way though. I got one daughter that's born. Y'all gotta stop that weird shit."

That's 6 children in total. But he allegedly fathered a 1-year-old boy with ex-girlfriend Jania Bania. Yaya's unborn baby makes 8.

Dwayne Johnson is counting his blessings after revealing he and every member of his immediate family tested positive for COVID-19.

In a new video message, the Jumanji: The Next Level star shared that he, his wife Lauren, and their daughters, Jasmine and Tiana, were diagnosed with the coronavirus, adding the diagnoses are among "the most challenging and difficult" things he's ever had to deal with.

WENN/Avalon

"Testing positive for COVID-19 is a lot different than recovering from nasty injuries, getting evicted or being broke, which I've been more than a few times," he said. "My number one priority is to always protect my family and my loved ones... I wish it was only me that tested positive.

"It was my entire family and it was a kick in the gut."

Nicky Nelson/WENN.com

But he admits there's light at the end of the tunnel, adding, "We're on the other end of it and no longer contagious. Thank God, we're healthy.

"We are counting our blessings right now. We are well aware you don't always get to the other end of COVID-19 stronger and healthier. I have had some of my best friends lose their parents to this virus that is so incredibly relentless and unforgiving. We are counting our blessings, but we are good."

Dwayne ended the video message by urging fans and followers to always wear a mask when out in public and limit the amount of people at social gatherings.

He's not the only Hollywood star who has tested positive for COVID-19.

Tom Hanks and his wife Rita Wilson were the first back in March, and Idris Elba, Kevin Hart, Antonio Banderas, Lena Dunham, Bryan Cranston, and Mel Gibson have all battled the deadly virus, which has claimed the lives of almost 860,000 people around the world.

Johnson is the latest celebrity to test positive for Covid-19 while wearing a face mask.

A judge let rapper Future off the hook by ordering him to pay $3,200-a-month in child support to the mother of his one-year-old daughter, Reign.

It's a small victory for the "Mask Off" impresario whose ex, Eliza Reign Seraphin, initially demanded $53,000-a-month.

The disappointed mom-of-one is appealing the judge's verdict.

"We are very hopeful that once we get all the documentation from him, his banking info, his credit card info, that the final child support number would be substantially higher," Seraphin's lawyer, Brandon Rotbart, told IG blog The Shade Room.

He added that he and his team are disputing the rapper's claims he only earns $30,000 -a-month. "We had some other evidence that was contradictory," Rotbart said.

Seraphin, 29, previously rejected Future's proposed offer of $1,000-a-month in child support for their daughter. She began her career as an Instagram model in May 2016.

Future, 36, dated Seraphin on-and-off from 2016 through 2018. Their daughter is the rap star's sixth child by various women, including a son, Future Zahir, he shares with pop singer Ciara Wilson, 34.
