Zoe Saldana Covers Gotham Magazine’s September 2012 Issue In A Givenchy Satin Jumpsuit

Actress Zoe Saldana is covering the September 2012 issue of Gotham magazine. On the cover, Zoe is wearing a Givenchy satin jumpsuit with chiffon details. Inside, she posed in an all black suit, blue sweater & jacket, stonewash jeans and a red dress for her Andrew Eccles photoshoot. In her interview Zoe reveals that fashion is important to her and runs in the family, favorite pieces of clothing, and gives credit to other actresses with style. Below are some excerpts:

On her first memory of fashion:

“My grandmother and great-grandmother were seamstresses their whole lives, so when my grandmother moved to New York in the ’60s, she worked for design houses throughout the city. She really loved fabrics and textiles, so it was natural to my family. Fashion wasn’t like a religion to us, but it is in my ancestry. It was never about luxury; it was about art.”

On the favorite piece of clothing she owns:
“There’s this Azzedine Alaia dress I have that makes me feel like I am collecting art. Collecting from certain designers is like collecting art and will always remain as memorable as the very first Chanel bag that I bought myself.”

On her contemporaries with a kindred sense of style:
“Sienna Miller, Julianne Moore, these kind of effortless beauties. Diane Kruger. I just love looking at their styles and feeling inspired by their choices.”

On what she’s looking forward to in the new year: 
“Honestly, to continue growing in every aspect of my life because it’s been a long time since I’ve been this happy. I really want that to motivate me moving forward on every level.”

Tika Sumpter Looks Stunning In Her Rolling Out Photo Spread; Plus She Talks About ‘Sparkle’ & Dating

Rising actress Tika Sumpter who is featured in the upcoming movie Sparkle (hit theaters tomorrow Friday August 17), did a photo spread and interview with Rolling Out magazine. Styled by Micah McDonald, Tika dressed in denim daisy dukes, tank tops, a tied-up shirt, and sweater in the DeWayne Rogers shoot. Tika has a lot of class, beauty, smile and talents. She represents the new generation of fresh Black talent in Hollywood. In her cover story, Tika talks about the different role she played, her character Delores in the movie Sparkle, the entertainment industry and dating. Below are some excerpts:

One of our first encounters with you was on “Gossip Girls.” How different was the experience of Sparkle with its all-black cast?

First off, I just want to say that I am very thankful for the opportunity that I received with “Gossip Girls.” To me though, acting is just acting. I honestly don’t like saying a black film, because on the flip side, we don’t call then white films. At the end of the day, when they say action, we all have to do the same job.

How did you channel your character Delores in the movie Sparkle?

I’m grateful to [screenwriter] Mara Brock Akil, because she expanded the role of Delores. I definitely think there is some of me in the character … she is a protector and a strong person, which mirrors my own personality a lot. The great thing about the role, is that I was able to really take chances and expand upon who Delores was in the original.

Lil Wayne Dedication 4 Cover; Plus Bow Wow Goes In On YMCMB

After dropping his new freestyle to 2 Chainz’s “No Lie”, Weezy decided to release the artwork for Dedication 4 which was created by a DeWeezy fan by the name of Jesse Diebolt. Expect the mixtape to drop next week.

10-12 years ago, Bow Wow was one of the hottest new rappers out. I had all of his albums and knew the lyrics to most of his songs. Now this dude can’t make a hit to save his career. Maybe, that is the reason why YMCMB disowns him. His new album Underrated was supposed to drop almost three years ago. It is now safe to say that album is not going to see the light of day. Last night, Bow Wow took to his official Twitter @BowWow and ranted about his label in a series of tweets. If you care, read dude tweets below!

“Doing everything on my own. No help from nobody. Going to radio dolo going to da clubs fuk’n wit dj’s dolo. So when i win im thankn myself.”

“Shit so fucked up maaan.. I swear. Im tryna stay focused but its like at this point “Fuck that album” & Fuck a release date. Im doin shows.”

“on tour my shows is sell’n out. Im able to feed my fam and do what i do. Thats whats important. Dis album has fallen to 9th place on my list.”

Was Bow Wow directing those tweets toward YMCMB?

IS CIARA DOING ANOTHER BALLER? Word Is That She’s Dating Dwight Howard

Most of us already know that Ciara is addicted to athletics. In the past she dated Amar’e Stoudemire and was linked to NFL player Cam Newton who also dated Angela Simmons. It is now rumored that Ciara snatched up another baller. Word in the sports world is that Cici is messing with Dwight Howard who was traded to the Lakers last week. This is so not a good look! Dude has a main girl and five baby mamas.

According to Black Sports Online, “CiCi has enjoyed “a couple of dates” with the baller, who was signed to the Lakers just last week, and sources claim they are keeping their romance under wraps until they feel certain it is going to work. Dwight is VERY conscious about how the public sees him… and he wants to be sure that him and Ciara are serious before he goes public with her.”

It is my opinion to say that Rihanna is the hottest chick in the game! After being back home in Los Angeles for a few days, Riri is now flying back out of the states. She just arrived at Tokyo Narita airport with a lot of Gucci luggage. Riri is in the capital city of Japan for her weekend performance at “Summer Sonic In Tokyo & Osaka”. Riri sure was traveling in style. She wore an oversized Versace “Palace” tee-shirt and ripped jeans paired with the newly release “Golden Moments” Air Jordan 6. Riri accessorized her outfit with a black leather cap, sunglasses and an $895 limited edition Gucci USA GG flag collection Boston bag.
