Rihanna Covers GLAMOUR [November]


Rihanna sports  a short curly ‘do for the November cover of Glamour!

RihRih’s party days are over! The songstress revealed to Glamour that she’s opting to live a more mellow lifestyle. She also dishes on her perceived public image and her career.

On her perceived public image:
“It doesn’t p*** me off because they don’t know me so well, so it’s easy for them to draw conclusions and it’s their right to. How can they know anything different? But I tried to be as honest with myself as possible. Be realistic with who I am and what I love to do and what makes me happy.”

On her new lifestyle:
“Recently, I’ve become like a square. I hate partying. I’ve been so bored with it. Maybe it’s because its the same music every night. I don’t know y’all feel me? I don’t know, maybe we need some more DJ’s or something.

On her career:
“You work hard and you play hard. I’ve definitely been working a lot in the last 8 years, it’s been a lot of hard work, but I love it. I love doing what I do. I have a lot to celebrate, so you will catch me celebrating every once in a while because I work hard. I love what I do and I put my focus into that. That’s my priority. Being number 1 never gets old. It actually puts a lot of pressure on you. It’s a challenge in itself. It keeps me busy but I love it. I love to challenge myself.”

L&HHATL Stars Traci Steele and Babey Drew Cover ‘Rolling Out’ Magazine


Love & Hip-Hop Atlanta newcomers DJ Traci Steele and DJ Babey Drew cover the new issue of Rolling Out magazine. The pair may no longer be romantically involved, but the love they have for one another is still there. Check out some of what they had to say below.

How did you guys first meet?

DJ Babey Drew: I met her while interviewing her for a position at the radio station.

DJ Traci Steele: But I was already engaged to someone else at the time.

Traci: Someone had wrecked his car and she had to take him to work every day. And we had a lot in common. We’re both West Indian and he would play reggae in the car on the way to work.

Drew: We’ve always juggled our business and personal lives from day one.

Drew: I taught her how to make money. She taught me how to keep it. If I didn’t teach her how to make money she would not be the hustler she is. And if she didn’t teach me how to keep money, I wouldn’t have money today. It was like Ebony and Ivory. Peaches and Cream.

Was this a case of opposites attract?

Drew: We’re definitely different. This is definitely opposites attract. Because she’s loud and rambunctious. And I’m laid back. I’m not quiet at all. I’m just laid back. And to be honest, she’s the only woman who could just be yelling and I’m just like [waves his hand in a dismissive way] … Every other woman that has yelled at me in a relationship …

Traci: It pisses him off …

Drew: When they yell at me, it’s over. With her, it’s kind of funny.

When did the relationship get serious?

Traci: I was like 24, because I had bought my first house. And you took me to your parents. And your mother grilled the hell out of me. I don’t think she liked me … at first …

Drew: My mother don’t like anybody at first …

Traci: And we were driving home from meeting your mother and you said “I want you to be my girl.” And I was like “wow” [laughing].

Drew: You have elephant memory because I don’t remember any of it. I remember, but not the details.

Her: And I was like “OK.” And then you moved in.

Her: I was 24 when we started dating. I was 27 when I got pregnant. And I was 28 when I had my son.

Funkmaster Flex & Wife Separating After Almost 20 Years of Marriage



Renown DJ Funkmaster Flex and wife Monica Joseph-Taylor have decided to separate after almost 20 years of marriage. Flex’s wife broke the news to fans, and well the media, via her twitter page.  She said:

“After almost 18 years of friendship and marriage it is with great regret that I announce my husband Aston Taylor, also known as Funkmaster Flex, and I are separated. We have tremendous love and respect for each-other, and will continue to work on our professional projects together. Our top priority has and will always be our children! I personally ask that the press keep in mind Flex is the celebrity, not myself or my children, please respect our privacy!”

Monica didn’t say whether or not this decision was made as a result of Funkmaster Flex’s arrest this  past February. In case you didn’t know, the DJ was arrested in New York after an unidentified woman told police Flex pushed her and attempted to break her phone. The cops responded to a call made by what TMZ said was a 40-year-old woman. Flex was not at the house when police arrived , but they later caught up with him and he was arrested.
