Usher did WHAT?

It certainly appears like Usher failed to show love in the strip club after throwing phony money WITH HIS FACE ON IT during a recent night out according to dancer @beel0ove who immediately went viral on social media.

Now, as far we know know, the dancers weren’t aware that they’d be paid in Usher-themed Monopoly money despite Usher teasing the cash in what appears to be a photoshoot for an upcoming project.

Apparently, Usher paid the dancer Usher-themed 20, $100, and $1 bills that were obviously FAKE and non-transferrable for real cash.

So far, the “U Remind Me” singer hasn’t addressed the allegations or dropped more promo hints which hasn’t stopped Twitter from clowning him and and his counterfeit “USH BUCKS.”

UPDATE: A Sapphire rep in Vegas revealed to TMZ that Usher did NOT tip the dancers with Ushbucks and actually tipped the dancers and staff generously.

Sources close to Usher told TMZ that his crew (not him) left some Ushbucks behind on the stage as a joke while also promoting Usher’s new Vegas residency.

Oh, and one more thing: 2 separate parties said the dancer’s version of the story is BS.

Hmmm, at this point, we’re not exactly sure what happened that night or why that once particular dancer only had Ushbucks but we’ll keep you posted.

What would you do if someone paid you with fake money with their face on it? Do you think it’s promo for his upcoming Vegas residency or something else? Tell us down below and peep the funniest (and pettiest) reactions to Usher’s ‘Ushbucks’ on the flip.

Way to go, Brian Kemp.

We’ve already seen that big businesses are putting big punitive pressure on the politicians in the state of Georgia after Governor Brian Kemp signed SB 202 which makes it more difficult for people to cast their votes. Namely, Black people. The MLB pulled the All-Star game from the Atlanta Braves home stadium and both Delta and Coca-Cola have issued public statements condemning the Jim Crow-ish legislation.

Today, according to an article in Deadline, Will Smith and Antoine Fuqua have officially moved the production of their new Apple runaway slave film Emancipation out of Georgia as a result. They issued the following statement regarding their decision:

“At this moment in time, the Nation is coming to terms with its history and is attempting to eliminate vestiges of institutional racism to achieve true racial justice. We cannot in good conscience provide economic support to a government that enacts regressive voting laws that are designed to restrict voter access. The new Georgia voting laws are reminiscent of voting impediments that were passed at the end of Reconstruction to prevent many Americans from voting. Regrettably, we feel compelled to move our film production work from Georgia to another state.”

As some of you may already know, Georgia is a rest haven for film production these days because the state has offered significant tax incentives for these companies to create movies and television shows in the state and particularly in the Atlanta area and surrounding suburbs. Many of your favorite Marvel movies and TV series were shot there in addition to long-running hit series like The Walking Dead have all made homes in Georgia. If this becomes a trend, the state will lose a significant amount of money from their coffers and may have to rethink how they operate if they want to keep the Hollywood faucet running. We won’t hold our breath but it’s worth keeping an eye on.

Also, hard to film a movie about freedom and slaves taking back their agency in a state that is actively trying to suppress Black votes.

Congratulations are in order.

Rapper, actor, and businessman Nick Cannon has announced that he’s expecting twin boys with Abby De La Rosa, who took to Instagram to call them “my miracle babies.”

She included a touching message, writing, “Thank you for choosing me to be your Mommy. I know the Lord has destined me and prepared me for the gift of not one but two little angels. I pray that God give you both the strength to walk brave and boldly in your individual truth just like your Daddy. That God bless you and your brother and guide you into living out your full purpose. Your Dad & I will always be here for you both; in complete unison and support. No matter what this world may throw your way, know that forgiveness is key and what is for you – is for YOU! You both are already so loved and we can’t wait to meet you both.”

De La Rosa has her hands in several things too, as she’s worked for a radio station, and is also an international DJ. Of course, this isn’t the first time Cannon has been linked to a beautiful and successful woman. His first set of twins is with Mariah Carey, and his other two kids are by model and beauty pageant titleholder — yup, she’s Miss Guam 2014– Britany Bell.

So we took a look back on some of De La Rosa’s hottest Instagram shots which you can peep below.

“The Talk” is back — minus one host — Sharon Osbourne. The Emmy-award-winning daytime talk show returned today following several weeks hiatus since Sheryl Underwood and Sharon Osbourne had a heated discussion around racism and commentary by Piers Morgan, which Osbourne defended. During the hiatus CBS revealed Osbourne would not be returning to the show.

At the top of Monday’s “The Talk,” host Sheryl Underwood shared a message from backstage as the show returns since the week of March 10.

“It’s time for an episode of ‘The Talk’ that will be unlike any other we’ve had before.” Underwood adds, “As you may know, during our break, Sharon decided to leave ‘The Talk.’ We need to process the events of that day and what happened since, so we can get to the healing. Over the next hour, we will honestly discuss what occurred and explore some of our feelings. And we’ll also show you how anyone can become more comfortable discussing important issues and having difficult conversations. By the end of the hour, we want everyone to feel empowered and ready to move forward.”

Watch the clip below:

FIRST of all… YASSSSSSS to Sheryl and this new wig. We like it we like it. We are loving that big boss energy she’s radiating too.

During the episode, Underwood went on discuss the emotionally charged, on-air conversation with Sharon Osbourne on March 10, along with expert on diversity, equity, inclusion, and justice Dr. Donald E. Grant.

“I didn’t want to escalate things with Sharon, because I thought I was having a conversation with a friend, but also, I knew I had to be an example for others to follow. I didn’t want to be perceived as that angry Black woman, and that really scared me. I didn’t want to be that and I wanted to remain calm and focused. It’s difficult to go back to that day because I just feel the trauma. I feel fearful, a little apprehensive.”

It was pretty clear for everyone that was watching, that Sheryl was doing everything in her power to remain calm and not come across ass angry.

Fellow host Elaine Welteroth added:

“I just want to acknowledge you, Sheryl, on-air for how you handled the situation. I think it’s important for people to really know the strength and willpower it takes to maintain that kind of composure in that situation. And I think for me, I was just really entering that conversation with the hope of finding a common ground and I didn’t feel like I was heard, which saddened me because part of the reason I joined this show with all of these diverse, beautiful, intelligent women was because I thought that we had an opportunity here and I think we do have an opportunity here to have conversations that help show people how to bridge these divides in our country and that we can do it with empathy.” She adds, “So I was hoping to steer the conversation away from a debate about who’s racist, who’s not, what’s racist, what’s not and talk really about what does it mean to be anti-racist, because that’s a more productive conversation.”

Kyrie Irving is back trending.

No, it’s got nothing to do with an injury or him disappearing from the Nets for weeks, but an on-court feud with an opposing player. On Saturday afternoon, the Brooklyn Nets were taking on the Los Angeles Lakers when he got into a bit of a spat with Dennis Schröder. In the clip, you can see both players standing chest to chest, mouthing off to each other as the referee breaks them and subsequently gives them both technical fouls. However, the two keep talking, and both get ejected– something that has never happened to either of them.

At first, it seems that Schröder was just angry about a recent foul call, it was actually Irving who was truly angry because he was called the N-word.

“God damn n-gga,” Schröder appears to say as Irving gets in his face.

Irving then angrily responds, “Don’t call me nigga bro.” Followed by, “You don’t know me like that. Watch your mouth.”

Irving confirmed that the N-word was what lit the fire with a tweet Sunday afternoon, saying, “The N-word is a derogatory racial slur! It will never be… -a term of endearment -reclaimed -flipped NEVER FORGET ITS FOUL AND TRUE HISTORY! Throw that N-word out the window, right alongside all of those other racist words used to describe my people. We are not slaves or N’s.”

Of course, like anything Kyrie Irving says or does, Twitter went in on him about his recent hatred for the N-word. Check out some reactions below.

The singer was photographed arriving at The Nice Guy after midnight wearing a nude tee with a green patterned miniskirt and headscarf in a different pattern and shade of green. She’s still sporting her braided look that we’ve seen her in for the last few weeks.

It must have been chilly out, because Rihanna brought the sheepskin shearling jacket out again for the evening.

We love that she rocked a bold red lip and green patterned heels and an anklet on her right ankle completed her look.

We love how Rihanna always throws together these cute looks that aren’t too overdone. Also a girls’ night out is always fun. Where is ASAP Rocky though? We feel like we haven’t seen them together in a minute. Y’all think they’re done? Or just coolin’ on their friendly benefits tip? Do you think Rihanna and Rocky make a good long-term match?

Also — there have been sooooo many Rihanna sightings in LA in the last couple of weeks. Anybody else feel like we really MIGHT be getting some new music soon? We can’t wait. Just in time for summer. Bring on the great vibes Rih.

Good news for Daphne Joy and Diddy

Diddy, 50 Cent, Daphne Joy

This week Diddy and Daphne Joy were photographed together outside his Miami home, hand in hand. If you will recall, Daphne Joy dated 50 cent YEARS ago and they have a young son together, Sire. After the photo of Diddy and Daphne Joy was posted to blogs and on social media (SEE IT HERE) 50 actually commented and it seems that the couple have his blessings:

“Nah me and puff fight over business sh*t, If he like the girl, he like the girl, I don’t give a fu**!#bransoncognac #lecheminduroi.”

Well it’s good to know that he’s not the kind of guy to argue over a woman, even the mother of his child. Still we’d hope that he would have Daphne’s back if Puff did anything out of pocket.

50 has been holding steady with his girlfriend Jamira “Cuban Link” Haines for the past two years.

Diddy was linked to Miracle Watts just a few weeks ago but he’s also been linked to Lori Harvey and a few other less famous women. We’d be surprised if this link up with Daphne Joy turns into something more serious.

Daphne’s last high profile relationship following her split from 50 was with Jason Derulo, who is currently expecting a baby with his girlfriend Jena Frumes.

If all these links and breaks have you dizzy — we completely understand. Needless to stay we’ll be keeping a close eye out to see if this flirtation grows into something more serious.
