The 2016 VH1 Hip-Hop Honors returned to New York City after six years on Monday (July 11th 2016) and, as expected, it was jam-packed with hip-hop's biggest trailblazers. Plus, they were all women in a special edition dubbed 'All Hail the Queens'. This is the 8th ceremony since it made its debut in 2004.

Leading this year's honorees at Manhattan's Lincoln Center was Queen Latifah who performed 'U.N.I.T.Y.' and tried to focus all attention on the issues in the press recently regarding racism, police brutality and Black Lives Matter. 'We all know that the world and our world is really tense right now', she said. 'It's a lot of tension. It's a lot of angst. It's a lot of hurt. A lot of pain. I'm hoping that we can somehow manage to channel all of these emotions that we have in a positive way and really do something to change our world.'

Missy Elliott Drops First New Music In Seven Years


Missy Elliott Pharrell Williams

Missy Elliott has unveiled her first new music in over seven years, as today she released the video for a brand new single ‘WTF (Where They From)’, a collaboration with R&B star Pharrell Williams.

The 44 year old star was responsible for some of the most distinctive and downright cool pop music of the late ‘90s and mid noughties, but she hasn’t released anything since 2008, when she vanished from the music scene. However, she's been gradually easing herself back into music, notably with a brief performance at halftime of February's Super Bowl.

The Super Bowl is possibly the most anticipated and well-known sporting event of every year; a game of American Football, set to decide the National Football League champion team for that season. On 1st February 2014, the New England Patriots fought the Seattle Seahawks for the title, in a game that saw Quarterback Tom Brady win his fourth Super Bowl and third Super Bowl MVP award. In the end, the New England Patriots won the game with 28, against the Seattle Seahawks 24.

Idina Menzel received the honour of singing the American National Anthem during the opening ceremony, while Katy Perry received critical praise for her half-time show performance, featuring Lenny Kravitz and Missy Elliott. With the Super Bowl being such a loved sporting event, it should be no surprise that a whole host of celebrities made an appearance at the show to watch their favourite teams.

Following Alexandra Shipp Announcement, Lifetime Casts Timbaland And Missy Elliot In Aaliyah Biopic


Aaliyah Timbaland Missy Elliott

Lifetime’s Aaliyah biopic is moving full-speed ahead after the announcement of the lead actress. Despite lack of support from the family, the film will be made without any delays. According to The Hollywood Reporter, two more roles in the film have been cast – and they’re pretty big ones too.

Missy Elliott Timbaland
The Lifetime biopic has found its Missy Elliott and Timbaland.

Lifetime has followed its established practice of hiring relative unknowns and chosen Chattrisse Dolabaille and Izaak Smith for the roles of Aaliyah’s collaborators Missy Elliott and Timbaland. The rappers/producers were instrumental in helping Aaliyah’s career. They worked closely with the singer on her 1996 album One in a Million and she had practically become their protégé by the time her self-titled sophomore album was released in 2001. Aaliyah tragically and infamously died in a plane crash later that same year.

Honey Review


Unbearable

Somehow the people at Universal Pictures got it into their heads that easy-on-the-eyes, thin-on-talent Jessica Alba (star of Fox's short-lived "Dark Angel") should be a movie star.

So apparently a room full of monkeys was recruited to write "Honey," a laughable follow-your-dreams disaster in which the actress plays a sprightly, adorably indomitable, J.Lo-inspired babe from the Bronx who becomes a music-video dance choreographer, turns down a director's demand for sex, gets black-listed, then realizes what's really important in life is opening a neighborhood dance studio for street kids.

Trite and graceless, it's supposed to be the story of the girl's struggle to make it in showbiz, but no sooner does she point at a TV and say, "Check it. That's what I'm talkin' about. I should be dancing in videos like this!" than a video director (David Moscow) sees her shaking her stuff in a club and offers her a job.

Fade To Black Review


OK
In 2003, Brooklyn rapper Jay-Z (a.k.a. Shawn Carter) called it quits after an eight-year career. Compared to most rap artists, he ruled the charts and the airwaves for an eternity. His final album, "The Black Album" (2003) was meant to be a farewell to his fans, and now this feature film documents his final concert, a huge, sold-out affair in Madison Square Garden.

"Fade to Black" presents the show itself -- with guest appearances by Beyonce (Jay-Z's highly publicized girlfriend), Mary J. Blige, Ghostface Killah (from the Wu-Tang Clan) and Missy Elliot -- as well as behind-the-scenes footage during the making of the album.
