Draped Up and Dripped Out…

The delay in the updating of this blog is so not my fault. So fall back ya'll...don't send me no crazy e-mails about updating more often. It's all on Blogger's dysfunctional self this time. By the way, the extra large pics used in this post were my way of circumventing the system. Lots of gossip to drop, so keep up ya'll....

All the glitz and glamour of the red carpet, parties, and concerts was on and poppin this week.

The 2005 Black Movie Awards were taped last Sunday at the Wilter Theater in LA.:

Zoe Saldana looked uberly fabulous.

Vivica sashayed her lil azz in there looking more plastic than ever.

Vivica Fox and Bobby Brown

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us

Sigh. Now she doesn't look ugly, but all this tightness and plastic is just gettin ridiculous. "Remember when I used to love her....." I want the old V back.

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us
Tracee Ellis Ross

I'm not feelin this dress or them shoes with the big ol country red bows.

Tangi Miller's been fab ever since Felicity.

Apparently the less is more makeup look is making a comeback. I'm a fan.

Actress Taraji P. Henson

For those of you who don't know her...she was in Baby Boy, Four Brothers, Hairshow, and Hustle and Flow and some tv shows. She also just completed a new movie called Something New that's out next year. She's definitely doing her own YBF thang.

Terrance Howard

Someone's lookin real GQ. I'm tryin not to stay mad at him for his ignorant comment on national tv about Katrina victims.

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us

Awww...Robert Townsend and his daughter Skylar look like the ultimate Daddy/Daughter couple. Rob is lookin older...but still a fab actor/producer.

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us

Regina King lookin slim and trim.

Nia Long is another one of my favorite actresses:

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us

She is KILLIN em in this dress with her fab look. She has perfected the short hair coif to a damn science. I miss her. I need Ms. Nia to be in another movie soon.

Meagan Good is HOT!

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us
Image Hosted by ImageShack.us

Ms. Good can do no bad...wrong...whatever! The girl is fabulous! Check out those shoes.

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us

Loretta Divine was looking...well...like Loretta.

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us

Cutie pie Hill Harper made an appearance.

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us

We are so not worthy. My girl Elise Neal looks hella hot at this awards show. Keep doin ya thang ma.

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us
Don Cheadle

Loving the black suit and the tie. I love men that know how to dress.

Debbie Allen made an appearance. That's her husband Norman Nixon in the first pic.

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us
Image Hosted by ImageShack.us

Note to Debbie: You are not Indian nor do have an ounce of Indian or Bangladeshi in you...I'm sure. Therefore this sari outfit plus the traditional stone on the forehead is way overboard. I'm not feelin it.

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us
Cicily Tyson

Bobby was lookin a mess as usual:

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us
Image Hosted by ImageShack.us

I just have a few quick questions. 1) What physical harm happened to his body/brain to deform his mouth like that? That question's been haunting me ever since I saw the VH-1 special on New Edition. 2) Did he have to say "I'm Whitney Houston's husband" in order to make that child ask for an autograph?

On the gossip tip: Bobby is saying that he doesn't think the Being Bobby Brown show will be renewed. He says they will have to offer him a tight amount of change in order ot do the show again. Whatever. He know he blew all that money on that s*it. Go head and do that show and get yo money B.

Blair Underwood

Good God that man is gorgeous. Him and LL must have a secret cuz they just get better and better every year. *Sigh*

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us

I really need Neicy Nash to stop putting ridiculously sized bows/flowers in her hair. It's not cute.

Now usually Kimerly Elise looks great, but there's just something about this look that borderlines unfab.

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us
Image Hosted by ImageShack.us

Quite possibly it's that "white itchy bumbs will pop up soon" tight updo she has. Maybe not. Who knows.

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us
Eriq LaSalle and his date

The 14th annual Ella Awards were on Tuesday night at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills. They honored Elton John.

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us

Natalie Cole looks...interesting.

Enough of all that.... Usher's Restart Benefit Concert for Hurricanes Katrina and Rita victims went down this past Sunday at Atlanta's Phillip's Arena:

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us
AJ Calloway

Yes..that's AJ formerly of 106 and Park...with all them damn braids cut off...finally! I think he was playing MC.

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us
Usher and Alicia performed their duet.

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us
Chris Brown

I really hope he's not another one-hit wonder. Lord knows it's way too many of those.

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us

Now what Emmanuel Lewis was doing there...I have no clue. But everytime I see him I just have to smirk to myself. I know...it's wrong. Sue me.

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us

Juelz Santana performed.

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us

The Queen-in-Training of Soul and the Godfather of Soul kicked it for a while at the Benefit. Ms. Keys looks fab by the way.

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us

JD and Dem Franchise Boys wrecked shop on stage. And yeah...I do like em.

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us

The Soul Survivor himself (Young Jeezy) performed.

And moving on to the party scene:

What in the fresh hell is Diddy doin? He is preserving his "sexy" a lil too much.

That's him and designer Zac Posen gettin too close for comfort. Damn...I mean I know Kimberly Porter ain't the cutest thing...but must this be necessary.

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us

Joy Bryant...who's in need of a perm since the end of her hair doesn't match the top...attended the Oxfa America Charity event last week.

And now for a new reason to love the Magic Johnson empire:

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us
Image Hosted by ImageShack.us

Magic Johnson has recently announced he will be handing the entire empire (franchises, movie theaters, businesses, all that) down to his son Andre Johnson (in the pics above) who just happens to be ultra-sexy. The takeover will happen in 5 years.
Story

Bigga concluded their London trip a few days ago. Here they are checking out of their hotel and going on a last minute Louis Vuitton shopping spree. They reportedly spent 2000 pounds in just 5 minutes.

So as I watched Desperate Housewives these past few weeks...my new fave character has become Mechad Brooks.

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us

He plays Alfre Woodard's son Matthew Applewhite and he is most definitely the sexiext thing on that show. By the way...does anyone else think Robin Givens would be perfect for Alfre Woodard's part and fit in with the DH cast?? Anywho...Mechad's from Austin, TX so me and my girls may have to make a road trip real soon. {Thanks Cortney}

Meagan Goode is a gorgeous chica, and looks beautiful here as usual. She really needs to stop with the ghetto girl drawn-on eyebrows, though... So tacky.

I think that it is great that we (black folks) finally have a web site/page that allows us to view black movie stars, enterntainers in a positive light. I get so tired of see all the magazines that just feature white folks. It's about time we had something for ourselve. Keep up the great work and I do enjoy viewing Young Black and Fabulous. Lexus

Great site! Keep up the good

Great site! Keep up the good work.I am also in agreement with you about the "Laffy Taffy" song. That song has just ruined the innocence of my childhood candies.It even has a video, but it was actually tastefully done. Of course, that may have been the "clean" version of it. There's no telling what may be seen with the BET Uncut version, if one exists.

You are so right Natasha. I was wrong, Bigga were in London. I totally missed the London Underground sign in picture of their luggage. I miss London so much!!!

Black folks, are so funny. To

Black folks, are so funny. To Alia, who talks about how black folks have a similar background to Eva Longoria so she fits on this site. Let me tell you something - if Eva Longoria showed up to Hermes without her hair done or her make up on, she would have been allowed in. Don't get it twisted, a black person is someone who looks black, nobody cares about what or who you descended from. And so Eva Longoria is not black or of similar heritage to blacks, because she doesn't even look black and she does not have a black parent. Now of course it would not look strange to see J-Lo or Mariah Carey plastered over this page because they have more street cred unlike little Miss Eva-rrated(lol; get it?).

To Anonymous 4:14--Eva

To Anonymous 4:14--Eva Longoria is from a Mexican background, and they are often either descendants of the indigenous population (sometimes mis-named Indians) or Mestizo, which is a mixture of the indigenous and the European conquerors and such. Which also means that their background is very similar to African-Americans (with a lot of us having Native American blood and White in us). She fits right in here, basically.Oh, before I forget, that chick's name is Shondrella Avery, not Hondrella. Not that it's much better, IMO!And WORD to your comment on Diddy and Zac Posen. What. the. hell.Love the site girl, much love.

I agree - its Kimberly's hair

I agree - its Kimberly's hair in that pic, it looks better down.

Actually Bigga was in London

Actually Bigga was in London for the latter part of their trip (which is pictured here). They were only in Paris for the first part of it. Proof? They were pictured at Nubo restaurant that's in London and pictured at the Movida Club which is in London. (Those pictures aren't posted here...but can be found on several Beyonce fan pages). The hotel they are coming out of in this pic (which you can't fully see in these pics but can in other pics) is in London, also.
Natasha's picture

First of all let me say, that

First of all let me say, that you are one ghetto babe if you think Beyonce looks fab in those pictures of her shopping. Those jeans don't suit her, the top is ugly and the matching bag and boots - horrendous. I won't even talk about the beret on her head. Just goes to show that money cannot buy chic. By the way, those pictures were taken in Paris and not London. And why the hell is Eva Longoria plastered all over this site. Last time I checked she is a latino and a white one at that. Please, I see enough of her annoying ass on the other celeb blogs, I don't need to see her on YBF. She not even that cute. Totally overexposed and overrated.
