You Have to See Rihanna's 2018 Diamond Ball Lace Catsuit From Every Angle

When you invite Rihanna to an event, you're basically automatically anointing her as "best dressed" before she even sets foot on the red carpet... So imagine what happens when she's the one hosting. You don't have to, because her ensemble for the 2018 Diamond Ball, the annual soirĂ©e that benefits her Clara Lionel Foundation, pretty much proves that she'll pull out every possible sartorial stop. The 30-year-old made an entrance at Cipriani Wall Street in New York last night in a jaw-dropping Alexis Mabille Couture look that was part catsuit, part ballgown: The bottom layer, which featured a mock neck and long sleeves, was made of intricate white lace; a billowing skirt was attached to make it seem like a huge piece of white satin had been tied around her waist into an oversize bow that also covered her chest. Truly, it's one of those outfits you need to see (and admire) from every angle—and, luckily, the photographers assembled at the Diamond Ball red carpet did just that.             Rihanna completed the Alexis Mabille Couture look with simple white heels and dramatically luxe diamond earrings and rings from Chopard. She wore her long, dark hair in a deep side part and romantic, tumbling curls and sported her trademark glowy Fenty Face with a subtle smoky eye and a glossy peachy-bronze lip. Thursday night's ensemble was just the cherry on top of an incredible week for Rih. On Wednesday she closed out New York Fashion Week with the first-ever runway show for her lingerie brand, Savage x Fenty. She explained why it was so important for her to highlight women of all skin colors, body types, and backgrounds at the event: "I wanted to include every woman. I wanted every woman on the stage with different energies, different races, body types, different stages in their womanhood, culture," she told Elle. "I wanted women to feel celebrated and that we started this sh*t. We own this. This is our land because really it is. Women are running the world right now and it's too bad for men."

John Wick 3 Has Officially Cast Halle Berry And More

The last we saw our favorite retired hitman and puppy avenger John Wick in John Wick: Chapter 2, he was in a world of trouble, having been declared officially excommunicado from the Continental and dealing with a global contract out on his head. When it releases next year, John Wick: Chapter 3 will pick up after the events of the last film and find Keanu Reeves' character facing countless threats with no sanctuary to turn to. Joining the action franchise this time around is Halle Berry. The Oscar-winning actress took to social media to confirm her role in the film, check it out: I am Sofia 💋 #johnwick3 @rikerbrothers A post shared by Halle Berry (@halleberry) on May 21, 2018 at 9:29am PDT We had heard that John Wick: Chapter 3 was eyeing Halle Berry for the female lead, but it is nice to finally get that official confirmation from the actress herself. We don't know much at this point other than that her character will be named Sofia and that she reportedly won't be the film's villain, suggesting she could be an ally for John Wick and potentially even a new love interest. Halle Berry is, of course no stranger to the action genre, having starred as a Bond girl in Die Another Day and just last year in the more comic-booky spy film Kingsman: The Golden Circle. But Halle Berry isn't the only talented actor being added to the cast for this next chapter either, as Angelica Huston and Asia Kate Dillon are also joining John Wick 3.

Is The Weeknd Possibly Dropping a New Album on Friday?

The Weeknd is up to something. It's been two years since he dropped his last studio album Starboy.... in 2016, but the Toronto singer has been sharing cryptic Instagram messages that hint at a new album coming soon. Tuesday afternoon, he shared a screenshot of a text conversation with La Mar Taylor—his high school friend turned creative director—highlighting the message: "Should we drop Friday? I'm indifferent to be honest." A post shared by The Weeknd (@theweeknd) on Mar 27, 2018 at 4:21pm PDT Of course, a text conversation with a creative director leaves things pretty open-ended. Abel could be talking about a new album. Or he could be discussing merchandise, tour promotions, album artwork, a music video, a new song or a number of other possibilities. There is reason to believe he's referring to a new album, though. Abel has been sharing updates from the studio for months, and just last week, he uploaded a series of short video clips that announced the project was in its mastering phase. He was also recently spotted showing off his hoverboard skills in Los Angeles on the set of what appeared to be a new music video. Whatever he's cooking up, he has people excited—especially Travis Scott. In early March, Scott apparently got an early listen to the project and told fans, "It’s like when I first heard him for the first time." Looks like we might finally get a taste of our own on Friday.

Watch Netflix's first trailer for hip-hop biopic 'Roxanne, Roxanne'

Roxanne, Roxanne, the Lolita "Roxanne Shanté" Gooden biopic that premiered at Sundance last year, is making its way to Netflix on March 23rd ... -- and you can watch its first official trailer below the fold. Shanté rose to prominence as one of the most fearsome battle rappers in Queens, New York back in the 80s when she was just 14 years old. The biopic has some big names attached to it, including Oscar-winner Mahershala Ali (Moonlight, Luke Cage). Chanté Adams, the new actress who plays Roxanne, held her own though and won Sundance's Special Jury Award for Breakthrough Performance. Shanté's journey began when she wrote a track in response to rap trio U.T.F.O.'s Roxanne, Roxanne about a girl who wouldn't respond to their advances. In addition to showing how Shanté became a feared battle rapper in Queens, the Netflix original also explores the difficulties she faced to support her family. Check out the trailer below:

The Weeknd Gets Revenge........Steps out With Justin Bieber's Ex-Girlfriend Yovanna Ventura

And the feud continues! Amidst Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber getting back together, Selena's ex The Weeknd was recently seen holding hands with Justin's ex-girlfriend, Yovanna Ventura. Another day, another drama.... Justin, 23, briefly dated 21-year-old Yovanna throughout 2014 and 2015. They documented a string of romantic dinner dates as online and were even spotted canoodling in public. But now, it appears The Weeknd, 27, has the last word — at least when it comes to Yovanna. Yovanna and Justin posing together in 2014. (Photo Credit: Shots) The Weeknd — whose real name is Abel Tesfaye — was seen out at rapper French Montana's birthday party getting cozy with Yovanna, who is signed with Yooventura Wilhelmina Models. "The Weeknd was there hand in hand with Yovanna Ventura all night," a source told Us Weekly. "They arrived together. They were holding hands. He was there for a solid two hours with her and everywhere they went they held hands." Selena and The Weeknd during New York Fashion Week 2017. (Photo Credit: Getty Images) "He was parading her around," a second source said. "He was trying to make it obvious that he was with someone. They were pretty affectionate and were together the entire night." The next night the maybe-couple was photographed again in the seat of an SUV as they left Hyde nightclub. Selena and Justin rekindled their longtime romance after Sel called off her 10-month relationship with The Weeknd. And it seems like The Weeknd had to find someone to rebound with, and quickly— especially since his ex-girlfriend Bella Hadid has been rejecting him. Sources exclusively revealed to Life & Style that The Weeknd wants Bella back and he's been texting her and sending her flowers, but Bella "isn’t having any of it," insiders said.

WATCH VIDEO: RZA admits Russell Crowe spat at Azealia Banks.....

A huge shift from his original statement about the 2016 confrontation...... Last year, Azealia Banks accused Russell Crowe of assaulting her. The singer said that Crowe spat on her, called her the n-word, choked her and threw her out of his hotel suite. RZA, who had accompanied Banks to the party, claimed she was lying, releasing a statement that denied her claims and called her an “obnoxious erratic individual”. A recent interview with the Wu-Tang producer on the Breakfast Club sees RZA tell a different story now though. “He spit at her. I saw that,” RZA admitted when probed about the incident. “Did you check him at that point? That’s a white dude spitting on a black woman,” host Charlamagne tha God asked. RZA then attempted to explain the spit wad wasn’t big, and landed near Banks rather than on her. He added that Crowe apologised to him – no word on an apology to Banks though. At the time, the actor claimed he removed the “212” actor from his party after she threatened to cut other guests’ throats. The case was dropped by the Los Angeles District Attorney’s office in December. “UNTIL HE IS READY TO APOLOGIZE (TO ME) PUBLICLY, HE CAN GO BACK TO SUCKING RUSSELL CROWE’S DICK FOR INVITES TO HOLLYWOOD PARTIES,” she wrote in response on Instagram. “Nobody understands how badly I wanted to die the moment RZA LIED and told the world I deserved to be spat (at). People laughed at me and said I lied.” RZA is currently on the promo circuit for the latest Wu-Tang album and his film Love Beats Rhymes, starring Banks in her acting debut. What we should take with this, among the host of other experiences shared by women – and of utmost importance here, women of colour – is that we should believe women. Don't gaslight them. Out abusers. Show solidarity with survivors. Watch the full interview with RZA below.

LEATHERFACE Trailer (2017) Texas Chainsaw Massacre Prequel......

‘Leatherface’: First NSFW Trailer for the ‘Texas Chainsaw Massacre’ Prequel Is Bathed in Blood...... Get ready to revisit the Texas Chainsaw Massacre mythology with Leatherface, the new horror film that returns to the origin of the infamous killer. The film’s first trailer teases just what sort of movie fans of the franchise are in for. I say “teases” because this first look is really just a collection of creepy scenes that should be familiar–a mask made of human skin, bloody violence, Sawyer Family dinners, etc.–though with contemporary changes afforded by modern effects work and an all-new cast. The story is secondary to the gore in this trailer, but here’s the gist of it: Four escaped mental inmates, played by Jessica Madsen, Sam Coleman, Sam Strike, and James Bloor, get the bloody party started by kidnapping a young nurse (Vanessa Grasse). They’re pursued by local law enforcement, played by Finn Jones and Stephen Dorff; the latter plays Hal Hartman, a deranged Texas Ranger on a mission of revenge against the killer who will become known as Leatherface. And what would a Texas Chainsaw Massacre movie be without the Sawyer Family? Keep an eye out for Lili Taylor, whoo stars as the cannibalistic matriarch, Verna. Leatherface, directed by Julien Maury and Alexandre Bustillo, is rated R “for strong bloody violence, disturbing images, language and some sexuality/nudity.” Leatherface will enjoy an exclusive DirecTV release on September 21th, with a limited theatrical run and full VOD release through Lionsgate on October 20th.
