Michelle Williams and Kelly Rowland

Michelle Williams brought the party to Hollywood to celebrate her 32nd birthday with her fellow child of Destiny, Kelly Rowland. The ladies hit up the Gilt City L.A. event for Jaguar F-Type and took a ride in the sexy red car.
The birthday girl was glowing in a long green dress while her friends presented her with a cake at a celebratory dinner later in the evening.
“I feel amazing on my birthday this year!!! Thank you Lord for the process to get to this place!!!” tweeted Michelle, whose album Journey to Freedom is due later this year.
Beyoncé also wished her DC bandmate via a message on her website.

Juicy J and Miley Cyrus

Juicy J brought out Big Sean and Wiz Khalifa at his “Stay Trippy” show in L.A. last night, but the most surprising guest was Miley Cyrus. As money piled on the stage at the House of Blues, the pop star twerked to the Memphis rapper’s hit “Bandz a Make Her Dance.”
“Miley Cyrus twerked on stage tonite! The crowd went crazy!” tweeted Juicy J.
The 20-year-old is no stranger to twerking. She previously showed the world what she was working with in a viral video.
Just last week, Miley debuted her Mike WiLL Made It-produced single “We Can’t Stop,” which is currently in the top 10 on iTunes.

j-cole-bet
J. Cole is owning up to his mistake. The Roc Nation rapper has issued a sincere apology for an offensive lyric about autism.
On the Drake-assisted song “Jodeci Freestyle,” Cole raps, “Fuck your list, you lame ni**as and doubters/ I’m undoubtedly the hottest and that’s just me being modest/ Go check the numbers, dummy/ That’s just me gettin’ started/ I’m artistic, you ni**as is autistic, retarded.”
In a letter posted on his website Dreamvillain, Cole explained that the apology was necessary after a fan expressed their outrage.
“I was instantly embarrassed that I would be ignorant enough to say something so hurtful,” he wrote. “What makes the crime worse is that I should have known better.”
He went on to apologize to parents who are raising kids with autism, college students with Asperger’s Syndrome, and all those battling the development disorder.
“You deserve medals, not disrespect,” said Cole.
Read his heartfelt apology below.
 
Autism Speaks
Recently there’s been a trend that includes rappers saying something offensive, only to be attacked for it in the media and pressured to apologize. I have to be completely honest and say there’s a part of me that resents that. I view rap similar to how I view comedy. It’s going to ruffle feathers at times. It’s going to go “too far”. I do not believe that an apology is needed every time someone is offended, especially when that apology is really only for the sake of saving an endorsement or cleaning up bad press.
With that said, this is not the case today. This letter is sincere. This apology IS necessary.
In a recent verse on the song “Jodeci Freestyle”, I said something highly offensive to people with Autism. Last week, when I first saw a comment from someone outraged about the lyric, I realized right away that what I said was wrong. I was instantly embarrassed that I would be ignorant enough to say something so hurtful. What makes the crime worse is that I should have known better.
To the entire Autism community who expressed outrage, I’m moved and inspired by your passion, and I’m amazed at how strong you are as a unit. I have now read stories online from parents about their struggles and triumphs with raising an Autistic child and I admire how incredibly strong you have to be to do so. It’s touching. It also makes what I said even more embarrassing for me. I feel real shame. You have every right to be angry.
To anyone suffering from Autism, either mildly or severely, I am sorry. I’m bound to make mistakes in my life, but in my heart I just want to spread Love.
I want to educate myself more on Autism, and I’ll gladly own my mistake and serve as an example to today’s generation that there’s nothing cool about mean-spirited comments about someone with Autism. People with this disorder and their loved ones have to go through so much already, the last thing they need is to hear something as ignorant as what I said. I understand.
To the parents who are fighting through the frustrations that must come with raising a child with severe autism, finding strength and patience that they never knew they had; to the college student with Asperger’s Syndrome; to all those overcoming Autism. You deserve medals, not disrespect. I hope you accept my sincere apology.
Much Love
-Cole

rihanna-grey-1
From blonde to brunette to red to black. Rihanna has rocked just about every color hair throughout her career. But now she’s going grey. The fashion icon has dyed her locks a more mature shade, debuting the new look on Instagram.
“Grey is the new black! Blondies, it’s quiet for y’all! #brrr,” tweeted RiRi, who is currently in Europe on her “Diamonds World Tour.”
The new ‘do was met with a mixed response. “Look Great with every hair colour, Turn to Blue, green or Orange, you looook awesome,” wrote one fan, while another commented, “This makes you look old.”
