Atlanta is wide open during the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic. Atlanta is a Democratic stronghold but the clubs here are popping with club patrons not socially distancing or wearing face masks. Everyone feels safe because the coronavirus pandemic is over - at least in Atlanta!

Rapper Mulatto, aka Big Latto, first made a name for herself as a kiddie rapper selling her mixtapes out of the trunk of her mom's car.

After releasing a series of mixtapes and collaborating with other well-known rappers, she dropped out of Lovejoy High School in Clayton County, Ga. to pursue a recording career.

Mulatto is best known for winning the inaugural season of the Lifetime reality series The Rap Game. She signed to RCA Records after dropping her hit single "B*tch From Da Souf," which peaked at number 5 on Billboard's Bubbling Under Hot 100 Singles chart.

Mulatto was offered a recording contract from Jermaine Dupri on his So So Def Records imprint, but she turned it down to go independent.
 

The shapely rapper boasts a huge following on social media (4.3 million followers on IG alone).

Her debut album, Queen of Da Souf, is set to drop next week, Aug. 21. She will celebrate with a private album release party on Aug. 20 at Atlanta's #1 gentlemen's club. (Visit queenofdasouf.com to RSVP).

Winnie Harlow has a reputation for having a nasty attitude. An industry insider called out Harlow for rudely shoving her on the way to the open (free) bar at Teyana Taylor's listening party.

Marketer and music-industry insider Dimplez Ijeoma tweeted that she had "the wildest encounter" with the runway model at a listening party for Taylor's new album in Los Angeles.

Ijeoma tweeted: "Had the wildest encounter with @WinnieHarlow... crazy how someone so pretty could be so ugly--as a human being. God bless her."

Harlow responded to the tweet, asking "what happened?"

Ijeoma responded, tweeting: "Oh you know... pushing me out the way as you bulldozed your way to the front of a drink line. Having your manager call our mutual friend to ask me to take the tweet down. Typical mean girl BS. Be blessed."

Ileoma added: "Listen... Trey Songz de-escalated me IMMEDIATELY. b/c I was 2 seconds away from snatching her by the faux locs."

Harlow replied, saying she was drunk and apologizing for the intrusion.

"My love we were all tipsy. If I pass you to the bar it wasn't on purpose, it was an open bar." She added, "I apologize if I’ve made you feel [that] way. That definitely [was] not my intent."

Harlow denied having her manager call anyone.

"I've just woken up to this [message]. I didn't have anyone do anything."

Ijeoma's followers overwhelmingly agreed that Harlow has an attitude problem.

The invitations have gone out for rapper Future Hendrix's private all-black birthday party. Atlanta's power couple - Future and Lori Harvey - are expected to make their public debut tonight.

The Atlanta-based auto tune rapper celebrates his 36th birthday at an undisclosed location tonight, Nov. 20. The couple sparked rumors after they were spotted at Teyana Taylor's concert in Atlanta on Thursday, Nov. 14.

Future and Lori were seen kissing and cuddling backstage, sources told theJasmineBRAND blog.

Future's security was tight that night, so no pictures were allowed backstage.

Steve Harvey's stepdaughter made headlines when she was spotted on rap mogul Sean Combs' arm. Lori and Combs denied they were dating - and, as it turns out, they weren't lying.

Lori finally got tired of seeing Combs' flirting with other young women. She unfollowed him on social media.

But sources say sparks flew when Lori met Future. The rapper has seven children by as many women, including Seattle homemaker Ciara Wilson. Don't be surprised if Lori falls pregnant with Future's 8th seed.

Boo! We're here to surprise you with a new celebrity couple who should probably try to keep their masks on before everyone finds out about their relationship!

There was a private Halloween party in the past few days. Lots of celebrities in costume partying at a hotel in a big U.S. city.

One of the guests was a well-known professional athlete. When our athlete made his move to the pros, he went as a first round draft pick. He has played on more than one team over a long career that may be winding down at this point.

Another of the guests was a pretty actress. You know her as one of the stars of a TV series that is popular among younger viewers and those who love comics.

    "They were hugging and kissing the whole night. He introduced her to people as his girlfriend. Nobody was allowed to take photos or videos of the two of them together."

No flash photography, please!

By the way, our athlete's wife was definitely NOT there.

We don't mean to be cavalier, but perhaps our baller should end his marriage before the mainstream media finds out about his little affair with our sweet actress?

Atlanta's glitterati are abuzz over the star-studded Tyler Perry Studio launch in Atlanta this weekend. Many of the VIPs who got dressed up thinking they would get all access were disappointed to learn they weren't that important.

Ryan Cameron, host of Majic 107.5/97.5 radio in Atlanta, posed above with singer Beyonce Knowles-Carter at the event.

The star-studded party was also attended by the likes of Oprah Winfrey, Halle Berry, Will Smith and Maxine Waters.

Several people who I spoke to said they declined to attend the event once they learned of the different levels of VIP access, separate VIP rooms, secret side door access, red carpet-only access, etc.

In other words, everyone is not equal in Tyler Perry's world.

One star who got elite VIP status and didn't bother walking the red carpet with the commoners was Beyonce, who snuck in through a side door with her aging rapper husband, JAY-Z.

The inside joke was Beyonce ate like a bird at the gala dinner because she's embarrassed by her FUPA (acronym for fat upper crotch Area).

Sharp-eyed members of Beyonce's BeyHive noted her FUPA was Photoshopped out of her Instagram photos taken at the gala.

Another middle aged celebrity who isn't self-conscious about her FUPA is actress Halle Berry, who dressed in all black.

Beyonce admitted she cried at the launch of Perry's new movie studio, as she was overwhelmed by its significance for black entertainers.

The day after the bash, Beyonce revealed she cried at the event.

"Happy Sunday. Congratulations to Tyler Perry on the opening of his studios," The 39-year-old Lion King star wrote on Instagram. "I could feel our ancestors' presence. Surrounded by my heroes, I watched Denzel (Washington), Queen Oprah, Spike (Lee), Whoopi (Goldberg), Sir (Sidney) Poitier, Will, Halle , Dame Cicely (Tyson) and our angels John Singleton and Diahann Carroll honored.

"The Armand de Brignac (champagne) crashed against each soundstage as fireworks lit up the sky. Generations of blood, sweat and tears, success, excellence and brilliance.

"It makes me so proud, so full, I could not stop crying. Thank you my Virgo brother for so much love and passion put into every detail. My prayer today is that you will take it all in. You inspire me to dream even bigger."

Perry's studio has twelve soundstages, each named after an iconic Black actor, and is one of the biggest studios in the U.S.

Perry named one of the soundstages after pioneering actress Diahann Carroll, who recently passed away after a battle with cancer.

None of the soundstages was named after Beyonce.

Viola Davis, Samuel L. Jackson, Debbie Allen, Phylicia Rashad, Michael Ealy, Jill Scott, Ludacris, T.I., Usher, Sean Combs, and Ava DuVernay also attended the gala event.

Lifestyle blogger Tami Reed attended the star-studded grand opening of Tyler Perry's Studios in Atlanta on Saturday night.

Tami writes: "It was a star-studded affair, omg! I have never been to anything like this in the South and everyone that was in attendance showed up and showed out! The carpet was amazing with fresh red roses scattered throughout the facility and on the backdrop, so pretty!"

"The celebrities looked amazing dressed to the nines and talked to ALL the media on the carpet. You felt like you were very special, at least that is how I felt. The energy was exhilarating and it made you feel good inside and out. Please check out some of my snaps I got on the carpet but a full recap will be posted tomorrow. I just made it to Chicago this morning, so I’m a bit warn out from having a long night and then had to get up at the crack of dawn to travel. Enjoy the pics and check back tomorrow. Love you guys and thanks to Tyler Perry and his staff for inviting me out, I had an amazing time."
