In a Nutshell is a new weekly feature which will brief readers on current entertainment news and happenings minus the pretense and long explanations.
Jodeci appears to be gearing up for a reunion! As K-Ci & JoJo promoted their latest album, My Brother’s Keeper, they hinted at a Jodeci reunion. K-Ci stated that they had never broken up: We are not getting back together, simple reason is we never broke up. We have a vault of CDs that we could just put out at any moment... And actually, we’re in the studio right now. We record new Jodeci material every chance we get.” For those of us who are too anxious for the comeback, K-Ci & JoJo’s My Brother’s Keeper album will hit stores September 30th.
Jaden Smith sent out some extremely controversial tweets last Thursday. He began by tweeting: “School is the tool to brainwash the youth.. Education is rebellion.” As he gave us a few hours to dwell on that, he returned with even more radical claims: “If newborn babies could speak, they would be the most intelligent beings on planet earth... If everybody in the world dropped out of school, we would have a much more intelligent society.” Though I applaud being an individual thinker, these tweets seem to be a bit irresponsible. Everyone isn’t fortunate enough to have superstar parents and a lavish lifestyle that doesn’t require them to depend on education as a means of income later on. Kids, stay in school...
Mouthy model Chrissy Teigen and soul crooner John Legend have officially tied the knot. The couple married in Lake Cuomo, Italy at the Villa Pizzo hotel this past weekend and since then Chrissy has blinded us all by showing off her gorgeous diamond wedding ring set on Instagram. Of course, in true Chrissy fashion, she mentioned nothing about the huge diamond on her finger and instead promoted her swimsuit, Beach Bunny Swimwear, who she often models for. The newlyweds are enjoying their honeymoon on the Italian coast. Congratulations to the beautiful couple!
Floyd Mayweather’s baby mom, Josie Harris is mad about the fashion faceoff between their daughter Jirah and his on-and-off again fiancee’ Shantel Jackson. Apparently, there was another fight going on this past weekend, ringside at the Mayweather and Canelo fight in Vegas. It appears that Shantel and Floyd had been broken up, but she re-appeared (for the $41 million check if you ask me) at the fight this past weekend to cheer him on. She posted pictures in a hot pink belted Michael Costello dress and it seems that Floyd’s baby mama, Josie also had Michael Costello make the same dress for her daughter Jirah. Josie also posted photos of their little princess in the $795 Costello dress and had a few words to say about Costello and Shantel. Josie said: It’s an unspoken rule and a cardinal sin for a ‘real designer’ to dress clients alike going to the same major event... Tacky, tacky, tacky.” But she also had some words for Shantel: “She is a total gold digger... She conveniently came back around 2 days before Floyd got his $41.5 million check.” Michael Costello has since responded to Josie’s shade and said if she wanted an exclusive gown for her little girl then “she should have paid more.” My take is, she could’ve easily taken her daughter to Gymboree and her attire would have not only been different than Shantel’s, it would have actually been age appropriate, but moving right along...
Lebron James & Savannah Brinson tied the knot this past Saturday in San Diego, California. Gabrielle Union and Dwyane Wade were in attendance and also treated us with a photo op before they headed out. Chris and Adrienne Bosh, Neyo and Jay Z were also spotted at the wedding. Congratulations to Mr. and Mrs. James!
Rapper Gucci Mane appears to have completely lost it. Following his Twitter rant last week, he was arrested in Atlanta Saturday morning for carrying a concealed weapon and marijuana. After cursing and threatening the cops, he was also booked for disorderly conduct.
Janelle Monae was asked about her sexual preference on Sway in the Morning at Sirius XM’s Shade 45 and she kept it rather vague: “Women are amazing... and so are guys... There’s nothing wrong with being bisexual, there’s nothing wrong with being lesbian or gay. I am an advocate. I have friends who are in same sex relationships and I feel love has no sexual orientation. Life has no religious belief. Love is the purest and most important thing we can possess for ourselves and for others.” Sway seemed dissatisfied with the safe answer and bluntly asked her if she dates men or women. This is what Ms. Janelle had to say: “I keep my personal life very much to myself. I want everybody to focus on my music. I also don’t want to let anybody down. I want women to still be attracted to me. Go get my album! I want men to still be attracted to me so I have to be political in this. So I can’t really tell y’all!” Seeing how she said women first, my bet is that Janelle does prefer the ladies. Either way, who cares! Buy Electric Lady, it’s amazing!
