Cardi B Confirms Baby 

Cardi B confirmed over the weekend on Saturday Night Live that the rumors are true and she is indeed expecting a baby with her fiancé Offset. She later took to social media to address her haters, writing (and then deleting) "this is why I wanted so say nothing. People be so thirsty to scrutinize and try to destroy something that is supposed to be a blessing."


Chadwick Boseman, Cardi B SNL Ratings Up

Chadwick Boseman and Cardi B did a nice job bringing in the ratings for SNL this weekend. More people tuned in to watch them than they did to watch the previous episode with Bill Hader. Chadwick's episode was actually the highest since Natalie Portman hosted on February 3rd with musical guest Dua Lipa.


Tiffany Haddish's Ass is Deadly 

Tiffany Haddish was on the Tonight Show and told a story about how she used to be one of those hype people that you see at bat mitzvahs, and how she accidentally killed a guy. 


Ben Affleck Helps Boy in Hospice

It's always nice to hear heartwarming stories like this. There's a boy in Atlanta who is in hospice care and one of his big wishes is to hear from Batman. And sure enough… Ben Affleck heard about it and gave him a FaceTime session to say hi. Some of the boy's family is still in Zimbabwe - including his mom - so Ben offered to fly the family to be with the boy and said he'll be there right along side them. 


Logic Gives More Hints on Upcoming Movie 

I got the chance to interview Logic over the weekend and first off, what a NICE guy. Second -- he told me only a LITTLE bit more about the movie he's writing and starring in… he said it was a comedy. That's all I got! LOL! 


The Rock Hosting on HQ 

If you love The Rock and you love money, then you should definitely sign up to play HQ if you haven't already. The mobile quiz show game is teaming up with the Rock this Wednesday to give away its largest prize yet - $300,000. It's courtesy of the Rock's new movie Rampage. Seems like he'll be hosting along with regular host Scott Rogowski. 


Beyonce, Jay Z Adding to LA Mansion 

Looks like Beyonce and Jay Z are adding to their LA house… not only are they adding a two-car, two-story garage, but they're adding a 10-car carport. YIKES! The two-story garage would serve as living quarters for their security guards. 


Chance the Rapper Giving Commencement Speech

The first wave of celebrity graduation speakers is just starting to come through. Chance the Rapper is set to give the commencement speech at Dillard University in New Orleans May 12th.  


Little Girl Goes Sneaker Shopping with Halsey 

A while back I told you about this show called Sneaker Shopping where the host takes celebrities shopping for sneakers. And Halsey was a guest on one of the episodes, and a 4-year-old girl saw the episode and really wanted to to her own episode. Her dad tweeted, Halsey saw it and said she would fund the whole thing. Welp… for the little girls' fifth birthday, the show made it happen. Luna got to do her own episode. 


Zayn Wipes Instagram, Teases New Music 

Zayn Malik wiped his Instagram clean this weekend and put up one video which looks like a movie trailer. It has this Thursday's date… so we'll see if we get some new music!
