We’ve rounded up a few Instagram flicks of what some of your fave YBFers were up to over the weekend. Proud dads Busta Rhymes, Birdman and Eric Benet all celebrated their kids’ graduating, Nicki Minaj shared some behind-the-scenes flicks before her BBMA performance and Jordin Sparks and her boo Sage the Gemini got all kissy for the ‘gram. More inside….
A few YBF dads were overjoyed this weekend as they watched their children walk across the stage to receive their diplomas. Busta Rhymes was all smiles as he posed it up alongside his eldest son T’ziah Wood-Smith after he earned his college degree from Quinnipiac University in Hamden, Connecticut. Not only is T’ziah apart of the elite Kappa Alpha Psi fraternity, he’s also a star on the Quinnipiac Bobcats basketball team.
Busta excitedly captioned,
“I must say this has 2 be 1 of the if not thee most proudest moments of my life as a man and as a father 2 see my oldest son @tdot25 graduate frm college 2day. I remember when he was 3 yrs. old in the Woo-Hah video and now he’s an incredibly smart and powerful young/grown man. I love u and couldn’t be more proud of u young KING! Now let’s continue 2 secure the Win.”
Birdman may be engulfed in a legal battle with his “son” Lil Wayne, but the Hip Hop mogul and his biological son Bryan Williams Jr. are on good terms. He celebrated with his son as he received his high school diploma from American Heritage School over the weekend. And his sister Bria Williams and Uncle Slim were in attendance. Congrats Bryan Jr.!
Singer Eric Benet was also a proud dad this weekend. His daughter India Benet graduated from USC! He captioned, “What a great day! My heart bursts with love and gratitude. I’m so proud of my baby! @indiabenet USC graduate!! #proudpappa @jordangaskins”
At the 2015 Billboard Music Awards, Nicki Minaj rocked the stage with her performances of “The Night Is Still Young” and then David Guetta’s track “Hey Mama.” But before she hit the stage, she was busy warming up with celebrity choreographers LaurieAnn Gibson Casper Smart (aka Jennifer Lopez’s on-again boo) and putting the final touches on her look in the parking lot.
Ha! Get it Casper.
Nicki and her entire crew all gathered for a photo-op under the MGM Grand logo. Fun times.
“Power” producer and star 50 Cent caught up with “Empire” star Taraji P. Henson (looking flawless in a Alexandre Vauthier cutout gown) at the 2015 BBMAs. Looks like they’ve squashed their beef…for now. 50 captioned, “@tarajiphenson pretty ass was there looking good. I told her don’t fight me women, love me. LMAO (POWER) returns June6 #EFFENVODKA #FRIGO #SMSAUDIO”
“Power” returns to STARZ June 6th.
Songbird Jordin Sparks and rapper Sage the Gemini put their love on front street with an extra kissy Instagram flick, which she captioned, “Vroom vroom, baby. #baemaxx #baearea” It’s safe to say things are revving up between these two.
Cutie North West spent her Sunday Funday visiting a farm and getting her face painted like Minnie Mouse. Adorbs!
Rapper The Game (who’s filming for his upcoming VH1 reality series “She’s Got Game”) showed off his toned bod paired with a slew hashtags. He captioned “#FineNiggaFriday Chicago….
