Trey Songz Gets Holiday Sexy For HONEY Mag



Just when I thought this dude couldn't get much cuter, Trey Songz breaks out his Holiday sexy for Honey Mag.

On his sexual appeal I’m a lovable guy. You don’t think so? I’m confident. That exudes. Women like men who are confident. I’m humble and I was raised by women so I know what women like. On the “Invented Sex” video There’s a banned Calvin Klein commercial with a man with two women — a little more risqué, a little more raunchy — and there’s also an Eva Mendes Calvin Klein commercial; I kind of brought the two together. I knew Drake wasn’t going to be on this version, so I took that time to get sensual, to talk to the woman and make a new conversation piece. From here on out, with videos, with song structure, with everything — I’m trying to make it more like an event, more so than a motion, because everything in the music business usually moves clockwork. You got to do this, this way; this should be done, this way. I’m trying to think outside of the box with everything I do and make sure things are done in an innovative way that makes people look like ‘Ohhh… that’s different.’

The January 2010 Black Enterprise Cover

More than 4 years ago I started Young Black and Fabulous simply because I was just another young black woman addicted to celebrities, gossip, and how they lived the fabulous life.  I never imagined for one millisecond that it would become a business venture.  And more importantly...a lifestyle for so many different types of people.

For January 2010, Black Enterprise magazine chose entrepreneurs to feature and cover their "BE Next" issue.  And the theme is focusing on the business leaders of the younger generation who have successfully created their own lanes.  It was BEYOND an honor for me to be chosen as one of the four entrepreneurs for the cover feature. (I'm the one standing by the way)  I have my YBF fans--many of whom have been with me and my ups and downs from Day 1 when my posts were infiltrated with complaints about law school--to thank for that.  Many people simply see a few posts just published on the site everyday without realizing the work, business, relationships, and hardships that come with an internet business such as a celebrity gossip entertainment site.  And the sometimes impossible task of being a young black woman in a business world as new as this one.  So to be recognized by a business leader in their own right such as Black Enterprise, as well as the MANY, MANY YBF fans who know and appreciate all the work I and the YBF team put into the brand and how drastically it's grown purely by word of mouth, is the most amazing feeling I've felt in a long time.

MIDNIGHT SNACK: Beyonce's HEAT Fragrance+The Carters' Night Out

Beyonce Heat

Beyonce's got HEAT.  Not just on stage, but now in a bottle.  Apparently she's bottled up Sasha Fierce and is ready to sell it.  Her own brand new fragrance is called Heat and it's her very first one that's actually hers (not an endorsement like the Tommy Hilfiger and Armani fragrances).  This site "Ready To Catch The Fever" just went up and has a small trailer commercial for the fragrance.  And before y'all ask, I doubt it'll smell like a sweaty leotard and wig glue.  You know you were wondering...

Vanessa & Angela Simmons Chop it Up With Honey Magazine

Simmons sisters Vanessa and Angela got fabulous for their double cover of Honey Magazine. The cutie duo discussed their hit MTV show, hair, and virginity: On Relationships V:I don't want anyone to ever judge my relationship or be like "Aha, they broke up" next week. I don’t need those words put into the universe, so I just keep all that stuff private. And it keeps our relationship sane… even though he was on Daddy’s Girls this season. We’ve known each other for like four years. I met him in NY, two weeks before I moved to LA. It started out as just friends because I was actually on a date. (Laughs) And then I was just like, Hey, he gets me. We’re both kids of… we understand each other. The weird points when I just want to be by myself, he understands and he wants to be by himself because we both know what it’s like being in families in the public eye.

On Virginity A: Ok, the whole virginity thing came out because of the breakup I had previously. And on the show, of course, it came up that I was saving myself for marriage. Is it weird that people know that now? Yeah, kind of. Do I care that much? Not really, because it’s not like it’s a bad thing. No, it’s not for everybody. Everybody doesn’t have to wait because that’s not what they feel their destiny is. But this is what I have to do in order to get a relationship where it’s all good. I just think that when the sex factor is taken out of the relationship, you really get to know a person.

On Pastry V: When we first came out I remember they said the meanest things: "Oh, what do they know about sneakers?" We kept working, getting better and learning more. Two years later, the list of things that Pastry is about to foray into is freakin' mind-blowing. We're reinventing it. A: We're re-launching. We had a little clothing out there and now we're in the middle of remixing and changing it all up. And we have some really cool shoes coming out. On Hair V: I just took out all my extensions and [certain sites] are like, "Oh, we don't believe it" but it's all my hair. A: At the end of the day, we got hair under these weaves.

Dirty Money Flicks+Kimora & Family Get Fab For The Holidays+R.Kelly Goes At Disrespectful Artists+Tiger & Elin's NEW Pre-Nup

Kimora and her hubby Djimon Hounsou (can you believe he's 45??) and kiddies Ming Lee, 9, Aoki Lee, 7, and 5-month-old Kenzo snapped a family flick perfect for a Christmas card at their house in New Jersey. KiKi talked to Page Six Magazine about her new family life and love for baking: "I bake. I make a great German chocolate cake. Anyone who knows me will tell you I'm a great baker, the best," she tells the magazine. "When I bake something, I swear to god, it's gone before it hits the plate." On reports that her and Djimon's marriage isn't legit: "That's hogwash. The girls were there, and we had a wonderful time," she says. "It was very calm, family-motivated and spiritual." On being "normal": "Djimon and I enjoy discussing anything from politics to wine, and we have enriching, private, happy, balanced lives together," she says. "That's probably the thing that would shock people most: We do things like go to the grocery store and have fun with our kids. We're a normal family, doing the best we can."
Girl aint nothing "normal" about posing in front a Christmas tree in a ball gown for a "normal" Holiday pic. But that's why I HEART you and the "normal" extraness. Loves it all. By the way, Kimora also says in the mag that $40,000 monthly child support payment Russell claimed he would be making for Ming and Aoki is false. She says he has a big mouth. WOMP.

The details of Tiger and Elin's new pre-nup have leaked. Yesterday we reported Elin could hget up to $300 mill (with child support/spousal/etc) in a shorter window of time that she has to stay with Tiger. Now here's more details:
Apparently Tiger is negotiating an immediate $5 million payout to his wife, Elin Nordegren Woods and revising her prenup to give her as much as $55 million more to stay with him for just two more years as The Daily Beast reports. And the revised agreement provides for a staggered schedule of payments spread out over five years that could be worth upward of $75 million. So for Elin to collect $80 million, she’ll need to stay with Tiger another seven years, be a dutiful wife in showing up with him at social events and in public as if they were still the perfect couple, and sign a nondisclosure form that will prevent her from ever telling her story. Even if she lasts only two more years, she’ll still walk away with nearly twice what she was entitled to under the original prenup.
The original pre-nup called for her to stay with him for 10 years and she got a cool $20 mill. I swear this is the biggest come up of the damn decade--a nanny to a possible $300 mill?? Damn homie.
