Power couple Beyonce and Jay Z have apparently run out of ideas to spark interest in their “On the Run Tour” concerts.
The pair played home movies of their daughter Blue Ivy and their super private wedding ceremony on opening night of their tour in Miami.
Then, during Jay Z’s performance of “H to the Izzo,” the duo flashed celebrity mugshots on a giant screen onstage.
Former Disney child star Zendaya Coleman, 17, showed her haters what part of her anatomy to kiss during last night’s BET Awards. Earlier in the day, Lifetime Network announced that Zendaya would not play the role of Aaliyah in the upcoming biopic on the singer’s life. Zendaya quit after Aaliyah’s family and fans protested the fact that a biracial/mixed race actress was playing a black woman. Zendaya may not be playing Aaliyah, but a lot more people know who she is now. The TV movie has been put on hold until another actress can be found to fill the coveted role.
The weekend leading up to last night’s BET Awards was marred by violence. 1 man is dead and 5 others were injured in separate incidents in Los Angeles. But the show must go on — and on, and on… Most people (this writer included) didn’t stay up for the almost 4 hourlong awards show. So we missed the part when rapper Nicki Minaj accepted her trophy for best female hip hop artist — and dissed pseudo-rapper Iggy Azalea at the same time.
We are sad Zendaya will no longer portray Aaliyah. Production is currently on hold.

Alexander Masson (born Jan 1, 1993) is a French Colombian male model with amazing presence. This year, Alexander made his second appearance in a Jennifer Lopez video, for her song “I Luh Ya Papi”. This further cemented his standing as one of the most recognizable and in-demand newcomers. Alexander’s immaculately maintained hairstyle of “locs”, toned physique, and easy ability to go from “adorably boyish” to “smoldering” are all factors in him being a sought after face in the industry.
Alexander was born in Arlington, VA and moved to France, where he lived for six years before returning to the United States. After graduating from high school with a high 3.7 GPA, Alexander decided not to attend college, but instead pursue his career in the modeling industry. In 2013, Alexander booked his first modeling gig in Jennifer Lopez “Adrenalina” music video where he played the role of a drummer. He left such a lasting impression that Jennifer Lopez recommended him being cast in her new music video, “I Luh Ya Papi”.
Alexander’s advice to aspiring models: “If it’s your passion, don’t give up. Take the necessary steps to ensure your success.”
