Jhené Aiko Is A Disney Princess In “Lead The Way” Visual From “Raya & The Last Dragon”

As a woman who touts a large half-phoenix, half-dragon tattoo on her back, Jhené Aiko was the perfect fit for the Raya and the Last Dragon soundtrack. The Los Angeles native told Apple Music that she’s a self-described “Disney kid,” so her inclusion in the film’s creative process is a dream come true for the singer. We previously reported on Aiko partnering with Oscar-nominated composer James Newton-Howard for the Raya and the Last Dragon song “Lead The Way,” and now, the songbird returns with a fantastical visual to accompany the single.

“I’ve always had this little fantasy of being a Disney princess, voicing one, or like being the character. And so this was the closest that I’ve gotten, so I was pretty excited,” said Aiko. “The number one thing was I heard dragon, and I love dragons. I have a big dragon tattoo on my back. I was born in ’88, which is the year of the dragon. And I just think it’s a beautiful, mystical creature that is just so many things, symbolizes so many things for me, personally.”

Michelle Obama Is “So Proud” Of Zaya Wade: “Just An Amazing Role Model”

Her tenure as the First Lady may have come to an end, but Michelle Obama remains an inspiration to many. She’s shared her story with the world in the form of a candid memoir, Becoming, and she recently caught up with Dwyane Wade’s daughter and Gabrielle Union’s stepdaughter, Zaya, for a virtual interview. Zaya has made headlines after coming out as transgender at 12-years-old and the Wades have endured backlash from the public. They’ve remained a steadfast unit against the naysayers and Zaya has been thriving over the past year as she grows more comfortable with sharing her journey.

Zaya asked the former First Lady if she had any advice for “teens who want to be themselves and thrive like you have and currently are.” Michelle flipped the script on the 13-year-old and said, “And like you have and currently are.” Obama added, “You know, I am just so proud of you for being just an amazing role model and embracing your truth, right? You’re already doing this, so maybe this is for some other young people that are listening.”

“It does take time to know what ‘yourself’ is for young people,” said Michelle. “So, my first piece of advice is: be patient with yourself, number one. At your age, or in the teenage years and probably through your 20s, you’re gonna be experimenting with so many versions of yourself. All young people are trying on different versions, different voices, they’re learning more about their intellect, they’re learning about what they love, what they’re good at, what they like—this is the period of exploration.”

She added that often, adults put teens under too much pressure to know who they want to be in life, too soon. Michelle said a question she “hated” was, “What are you going to be when you grow up?” She said, “How am I supposed to—I’m thirteen! I’m twelve! You’re not supposed to know yet.” Michelle advised young people “to give yourself space and time to learn and grow.” A good little bit of advice for any age. Check out the clip below.

Trick Daddy Playfully Shoots His Shot With Apryl Jones: “Very Fine Eye Candy Specimen”

From the moment Apryl Jones strolled onto the scene for VH1 Family Reunion: Love & Hip Hop Edition, Trick Daddy Dollars was paying attention to her moves. The reality show has reinvented itself by gathering together various members of its hit franchises for a family reunion-styled retreat where they talk out any differences and find new unity. Trick Daddy acts as the patriarch of the group as he has helped facilitate the vacation, but his funny remarks about Apryl can’t go unnoticed.

Apryl, of course, gained wide popularity on the show due to her relationship with Omarion and her recent romance with O’s B2K groupmate, Fizz. Now that her relationship with Fizz has…well, fizzled out…it’s reported that Apryl and Dr. Dre may have something going on. Prior to the world learning about that last bit of news, Trick Daddy was on set with Apryl shooting his shot.

In the scene, Trick asks Apryl about the types of men she likes. “Apryl probably think that I’m ho-ish, but she’s a very fine eye candy specimen of a woman,” he said in a green screen interview. He also mentioned that he watched Apryl’s workouts every morning and invited her to his restaurant in Florida.

Trick pulls out all of his playa-playa lines and even told her she has “everything in the right place” as he put on a little pressure. Still, it doesn’t look as if Apryl was feeling it. Check out the chuckle-worthy clip below.

Tom Brady Weighs In On Colin Cowherd-Baker Mayfield Beef

Colin Cowherd always seems to give Baker Mayfield a hard time, no matter what it is he’s getting up to. This was especially the case on Thursday after Mayfield revealed that he had spotted a UFO while out with his wife. Fans were waiting on Cowherd to come through with a bizarre take on the whole thing and that is exactly what he did as he brought Tom Brady into all of it.

“Joe Montana, Troy Aikman, Terry Bradshaw & Tom Brady have never seen aliens. I would prefer my guys don’t talk about it,” Cowherd said.

Brady immediately took notice of these comments and decided to take to Twitter, where he jokingly took offense to what Cowherd had to say. “How do you know I’ve never seen aliens Colin?” Brady asked sarcastically.

This was followed up by a reply from Mayfield who took a light jab at Brady saying “At your age, you’ve probably seen a bunch.”

At this point, there is no end in sight for the Mayfield Vs. Cowherd beef but now that Brady has entered his way into all of it, perhaps Cowherd will finally back off, once and for all.

Lamar Odom Gets “Emotional” Watching His Old Reality Show With Khloe Kardashian

It’s been years since their relationship ended and they’ve both moved on with their lives, but Lamar Odom still has a soft spot for his ex-wife, Khloe Kardashian. There was a time when Odom was deeply entrenched in the Kardashian-Jenner clan, even having his own reality television show with Khloé where they wed on-screen, and after the recent demise of his engagement with Sabrina Parr, Odom seems to be pining, just a bit, for his old life.

The NBA icon has battled a number of addictions and recovered from a frightening, near-death overdose years ago. He and Khloe weren’t together when he was hospitalized, yet still married, but she immediately traveled to Nevada to be by his side. After their divorce was finalized, Khloe eventually moved on to another baller, Tristan Thompson, and they welcomed a daughter into the world. While their relationship has been fitted with its ups and downs, it’s rumored that Khloe and Tristan are back on track.

In recent interviews, Odom has been asked about his current feelings toward his ex-wife, and he often plays coy. The former basketball player has stated that she’s in a relationship and seems happy, but in a recent post, Odom once again is feeling nostaligic about his former life. The E! network is binging all things Kardashian-Jenners on their channel as they play reruns of the family’s reality shows, and Lamar Odom came across the marathon. He shared a video of himself watching an episode as he reflected on happier times.

“Man, look at that picture. It’s crazy. Time flies,” said Odom. “This is the Lamar Odom, Khloe marathon so I just wanted to say, give a shoutout to E! for giving me the opportunity. Shout out to my ex-wife, Kris Jenner, Kim [Kardashian], for giving me an opportunity to cross over. I’ll never forget the day I got married on TV. I get a little bit emotional watching it.”

Meanwhile, Sabrina Parr was recently spotted clubbing with Trey Songz. In a recent interview, Odom accused her of using him for fame and called her “deceitful.” Check out Odom’s clip below.
