Before starting his hosting duties, Diddy pre-gamed with a bottle of Ciroc along with French Montana, rapper Chinx and the CokeBoy President.


Keke Palmer and Quincy Brown were on the promo trail this weekend in Charlotte. The twosome conducted a private screening of their upcoming drama Brotherly Love at Studio Movie Grill.

Brotherly Love will also star Romeo Miller, “Empire” star Malik Yoba, Tia Mowry’s husband Cory Hardrict, singer Macy Gray, “Hit The Floor” actress Logan Browning, comedian Faizon Love and more.

Below is a short synopsis of the film:

Set on the backdrop of Philadelphia’s famed Overbrook High School, we track the lives of the nations number one high school basketball player Sergio Taylor as he deals with the early pressures of hood fame. His older brother June (Cory Hardrict) who had basketball dreams of his own, but after the death of their father he resorted to the allure of the streets to fill the financial void in the home. Finally, their sister Jackie (Keke Palmer) the princess of the bunch who has strong ambitions to pursue a musical career, but is suddenly side tracked by an unexpected encounter with teenage love. This story takes place in a city where the life expectancy of a black male is twenty-five years of age. A city that had over four hundred murders last year alone, and where the unemployment rate is at an all time high. This story is painted with a kaleidoscope of music, sports, and characters that will bring the last two generation closer together by allowing them to see the inner lives of our youths in the journey of Brotherly Love.

It’s expected to hit theaters April 24th.

While posing it up for the photogs, the upcoming Scream Queens star rocked a green Jonathan Simkhai dress, Chelsea Paris Footwear sandals topped with a printed Open Ceremony jacket. Cute look.

Will you be hitting the theaters next month to see Botherly Love?

“Empire” star Jussie Smollett was in Charlotte this weekend for a good cause.

The young star rocked a “Black Lives Matter” shirt at the CIAA FanFest event about knowing your status. He was on hand to encourage folks to sign up for free health/vitals screenings and join the meet and greet.

Also at the event….

Ginuwine hit the stage to serenade the ladies with some of his classic hits.

R&B singer K-Ci from Jodeci (who recently released a new video for their track “Every Moment”) hit the stage alongside the Ginuwine and the crowd went bananas.

Hmm…maybe Ginuwine’s preparing for a comeback as well? We shall see….
