Girl You Be Killin Em: Gabrielle Union Covers Ocean Drive And Speaks On Dwyane Wade, Having Children & Her Career

Hollywood hotty Gabrielle Union is covering the February issue of Ocean Drive magazine. On the cover, Union is looking very stylish in a pair of Lanvin Hollow Wedge heels and a gold sequence dress. Inside, she talks openly about living in Miami with her boyfriend/NBA player Dwyane Wade, having children and her career. On February 24th, Union will be featured in Tyler Perry’s forthcoming film Good Deeds. Below are some excerpts:

On life with Dwyane Wade in Miami

D and I have a life together, too. I love my life in Miami, I can’t imagine functioning without both, I love the design district, I love Midtown, I love what’s happening downtown now. I can be at People’s Barbecue or Sustain or Prime One Twelve, and I’m comfortable. It’s rare for me to feel that level of freedom. Miami represents joy for me.

A week away is pretty much it for me. When I land in Miami, I feel like I’ve been holding my breath and am finally exhaling. I can breathe. I feel accepted, welcomed. I feel like I can be my true self, the woman I always aspired to be… More in Miami than any other place.

On having children
I was never someone who thought about having kids – I mean, they’re great intheory, but I never imagined having one [myself]. Maybe over the next five years I could wrap my brain around becoming a mother and what that would mean in terms of sacrifice and dedication. I don’t do anything impulsively, so more toward the five years out than the one-year.

On her career
I’ve been lucky; for the past year I haven’t really auditioned for anything; the parts I got were straight-up offers. I’m not so grand that I wouldn’t audition. In fact, I wish I could audition more. There are a lot of people who won’t give me a chance because I was in ‘Bring It On’ one thousand years ago. They don’t think I can be more than that sassy sidekick. I guess they didn’t see ‘Cadillac Records’ or ‘Neo Ned’.

West Coast Rap Crew Vs. East Coast Rap Crew: A$AP Rocky Speaks On Beef With Hodgy Beats, Tyler The Creator & Odd Future

As I previous reported, Harlem’s rapper A$AP Rocky aka “that pretty muthaf**ka” is covering the February/March issue of Complex with fashion designer Jeremy Scott. I came across some excerpts from his cover story. In this particular section, the 24-year-old emcee talked about his issues with West Coast rap crew Odd Future. Rocky found time to clear the air, after Hodgy Beats of Odd Future threw shots at him. Below are some excerpts:

We talked about the Hodgy Beats thing and you got interviewed a shitload about it. Yeah.

Have you spoken to them yet? No.

And has there been any reaching out from his side? No.

Is the question getting annoying for you? It’s really irrelevant. Fuck annoying, it’s irrelevant. Put that in there. Quote: “Fuck annoying, it’s irrelevant.”

What do you see as the biggest difference between your two crews? East Coast, West Coast. Lifestyle. Culture. Not culture, but just day-to-day, everyday shit. It’s really fucked up because I know that they don’t like us. A lot of my crew members don’t like them niggas, but I like them niggas. I’m being honest. I like them.

Why don’t you think they like you? Nah. I know they don’t like us.

How do you know that? Because Hodgy went out his way to show that he doesn’t like us. He doesn’t have to like us. That’s fine with me.

Do you think they feel threatened by you guys? I don’t know what it is. They shouldn’t because we’re not coming for their necks or nothing like that. Personally, like I said, I want to work with Tyler, The Creator.

How big do you think that could be? I mean, I don’t really want to speak on it because it’s going to be corny. Like, if we work together, we work together. If we don’t, we don’t.

Are you siding with the West (Tyler, the Creator & Odd Future) or the East (A$AP Rocky & A$AP Mob)?

Partying In Miami: Wiz Khalifa, Amber Rose & Her New Face Tattoo At Cameo Nightclub

Rapper Wiz Khalifa was boo’d up with his girlfriend Amber Rose at Cameo nightclub on South Beach, this past Saturday (January 28). Paparazzi caught a close-up picture of Rose face and she was rocking a Mike Tyson inspired tattoo. I’m  not sure if the tattoo is permanent but it is definitely questionable. I really like Khalifa and Rose as a couple.

A nice wedding is in their future plans.  Wiz told Hollyscoop last week, “We’re gonna get married when the time is right, we’re enjoying each other, just having fun. Her music career is taking off. I would hate to stunt that, it’s gonna happen, it’s gonna happen.”And Amber recently told Billboard, “We do want to get married and will get married, but we want to get married, enjoy each other, have babies and be able to take time off. We’ll get married when things calm down a little bit.”
