YBF Celebs Do The 14th Annual VH1 Critics' Choice Awards

Awards season is in full swing.  And YBF folks hit up the VH1 Critics' Choice Awards last night in Santa Monica: Taraji P. Henson has been getting tons of recognition this season for her role in Curious Case of Benjamin Button.  And chick is looking fabulous in this Kaufman Franco dress. Her ex Common was there looking sexy as usual. And Angela Bassett looked nice as well.  Even though I feel like she's dressing way more covered up than she used to.  Don't be scared to floss your hotness Angie...

The 35th Annual People's Choice Awards

YBF celebs turned out for the 35th Annual People's Choice Awards last night in L.A.  While most of the big names stayed home, a few folks did come out to hit the red carpet: Host Queen Latifah looked fabulous in her purple floor length jeweled out Georges Chakra number. "90210" cutie Tristan Wilds hit the red carpet with his co-star Jessica Stroup. Jordin Sparks kicked her usual one leg up pose. And "Grey's Anatomy" star Chandra Wilson hit the red carpet in a burnt orange gown: The color surprisingly works, but can't say I'm loving the gown itself. More pics when you read the rest...

Jennifer Hudson Speaks About Her Grammy Nods+Other Grammy News

It's a rare thing to hear anything coming from Jennifer Hudson these days. But she's speaking out to her fans about her four Grammy nods. Here's her statement:
“It’s been a childhood dream of mine to release an album, so to receive 4 Grammy nominations is truly a blessing.

Foolywang Material: The 4th Annual Dirty Awards

I'm drained just looking at pics of this mess. The 4th Annual Dirty Awards went down last night in Atlanta. And before it ended in the obligatory ghetto fight, "celebs" hit the "red carpet" and kicked it inside the Georgia Convention Center: Keri Hilson was one of the few un-foolywang folks at the event.  And I'm mad at her for even being there.  You're way too fab for this Keri. Monica was there too.  In her usual skinny jeans and furry vest.  Cute look, but I just want everybody to stop bringing the oversized Louis Vuitton bags on the red carpet.  Like, really. I'm mad Shawty Lo had his daughter amongst the foolishness. Princess formerly of Crime Mob and her Louis V. bag tried to get her sexy on. And these fools got arrested for fighting inside: Alfamega and Big Kountry of T.I.'s camp.  Damn shame.  There were lots of other more Cops-esque pics with pepper spray and body slams galore but I'll refrain from posting those.

So Does This Mean...

Is Chrihanna our new Power Couple? Chris Brown racked up 3 American Music Awards last night--beating out vets and #1 chart killas like Lil Wayne, Kanye, Jay-Z, and others. Rihanna beat out people like Mariah, Mary J. Blige for her 2 awards. And neither Chris nor Rih Rih is known to have mass rave reviews about their singing or performance abilities. Yeah, Chris does his thing for the Pop N B stage.

More AMA Performances: Rihanna, Kanye & Alicia Keys

Rihanna took to the American Music Awards stage to perform her new single "Rehab": That bedazzled eye patch was killing me.  The gimmicks must stop for everyone in the industry.  Gloves, shades, chains, now Mama Tina's special creole creations eyepatch?  No ma'am.  The performance was blah per usual but Rih also looked fabulous per usual.  I'm sure that makes up for the lack of skills to some people. Elvis Kanye performed "Heartless" on the AMA stage.  That animal hanging out his back pocket kept distracting me.  Cool performance though. And Alicia Keys performed "Superwoman" bringing out surprises like Queen Latifah to rap and sing on the track as well as Opera extraordinaire Kathleen Battle.  I loved it.
