#betawards2014 Womens Red Carpet - Ashanti, Tiwa, Karrueche, Stephanie Coker and More

Posted in: , , ,

The BET Awards is holding in LA, home of the stars of the US Entertainment industry. So the memo for the ladies tonight seems to be "show some skin".

From cut-outs, sheer fabrics, high slits, short shorts, mini skirts, and plunging necklines, the ladies at the BET Awards Red Carpet let it all hang out.

Ashanti leads the pack in the beautiful white gown that shows off her deep cleavage, and has a knee-high slit.

See more pics of Tiwa Savage, Stephanie Coker, Karrueche Tran, Sevyn Streeter, Keke, and more.

Zendaya Is No Longer Involved in The Aaliyah Lifetime Movie

Posted in: , , ,

17-year-old Zendaya has backed out of her starring role in the Lifetime movie about late R&B singer Aaliyah, and is "no longer involved" in the project", a rep for the actress has confirmed today. The role may be recast or Lifetime may drop the entire movie.

The news of her departure comes less than two weeks after it was first announced that Zendaya would play the role of Aaliyah in the Lifetime biopic, tentatively titled "Aaliyah: Princess of R&B."

Zendaya had tried to push back to those who felt she should not play the singer, saying she was "black enough" since she had a African American dad. I guess those critics won.

Production was scheduled to begin this summer, and the network hoped for a fall release. But complications, and a new search for the lead, might warrant a push-back for the film.

Posted in: , , ,

Maimuna Abdullahi was sold into marriage by her parents for £120 and abused by her new husband, who locked her away and forced hard labour on her.

When she ran home she was beaten, first by her father, then her husband, and was summarily divorced by her husband for daring to flee – and she is still just 14 years old.

She is one of thousands in Nigeria with similar stories – and, shockingly, her husband blames his beaten former bride for her ordeal, saying she was disobedient and over-educated.

Maimuna’s former husband, Mahammadu Saidu, blames her few years of school for her disobedience. A handsome man of 28 who is obviously proud of his ankle-high boots, he does not deny beating his wife.
