Last summer, Saweetie enlisted Too Short for her promotion and rollout of the single “Tap In“. The song did what it needed to do in clubs and parties coast to coast all summer long. It took Saweetie to the next level and brought tons of new fans to her brand.

During the promotion of the song, Saweetie went on Instagram live with Too Short for a short interview and discussion for the fans. Over a year later, that interview is now resurfacing and causing mayhem for both artists over comments Short made that many took as being colorist.

During his discourse about mixed heritage women and mixed babies, Saweetie seemed to be taken aback by his comments and when she finally spoke, she made it a point to say black women are beautiful. After the old clip went viral, TMZ caught up with Too Short so he could add context to the situation and apologize for his comments.

“I would like to apologize to anyone that’s offended by my words,” stated Too Short.

He continued, “I’m not really into the whole hatred of ‘I hate you because you’re light or you’re the best because you’re dark.’ I’m not really into that. I love my blackness… Beauty is in every economic class, every race and you can go find that ugly exactly everywhere too.”

For once, it’s good to see a rapper apologize before the outrage reaches critical levels instead of doubling down until it impacts their finances. There is nothing wrong with saying sorry when you are wrong and offend people, even if you didn’t mean to do so.

Jennifer Lopez & Ben Affleck Caught Snuggling At LA Lakers Game – Sweet New Photo

Bennifer fans were gifted a Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez sighting at the Boston Celtics vs. Los Angeles Lakers game.

What’s a sports game without a Bennifer sighting? Not a very good one at all. Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck sat courtside at the game between the Boston Celtics and Los Angeles Lakers. The two were all smiles as they held hands and enjoyed the basketball game at the Staples Center in Los Angeles on Tuesday, Dec. 7.

J.Lo, 52, and Ben, 49, were also featured on the Jumbotron, per game goers on Twitter.

No, you aren’t in a 2002 time warp: following their split in 2004, Jennifer and Ben rekindled their romance in May, ushering in a new Bennifer era for a new generation. The reconciliation came after the singer split from fiancé Alex Rodriguez in April.

The romance has been growing strong ever since: the two have gone on vacation together, celebrated their birthdays, and spent time with each other’s children over the holidays. J.Lo shares twins Max and Emme, 13, with ex-husband Marc Anthony, while Ben shares Violet, 16, Seraphina, 12, and Samuel, 9, with ex-wife Jennifer Garner.

In his Wall Street Journal profile published on Dec. 1, Ben called the reconciliation “beautiful” and reveled at the beauty of second chances. “I can say that it’s definitely beautiful to me,” he said. “And it is a good story. It’s a great story. And, you know, maybe one day I’ll tell it. I’ll write it all out. And then I’ll light it on fire.”

“I am very lucky in my life in that I have benefited from second chances, and I am aware that other people don’t even get first chances,” Ben continued. “I’ve definitely tried to take advantage of that. I haven’t always been successful, but in cases in which I have, they’ve turned out to be the defining aspects of my life.”

As for whether a Bennifer engagement could happen again, J.Lo revealed in November that she’s open to marriage amidst her romance. While fielding questions on TODAY about whether she’d consider getting married again, she said, “Yeah, I guess. You know me, I’m a romantic. I always have been.”

She quipped about her previous marriages to Ojani Noa, Cris Judd, and Marc, “I’ve been married a few times. I still believe in happily ever after for sure. One hundred percent.”

Shannon Beador dishes on the new season of ‘Real Housewives of Orange County,’ sharing the details of her feud with co-stars Emily Simpson & Gina Kirschenheiter.

The Real Housewives of Orange County just dropped its epic Season 16 premiere on Dec. 1, and fans are already talking about the drama heating up between the West Coast ladies! To dish on the forthcoming drama, orange-holder Shannon Beador, 57, spoke with HollywoodLife EXCLUSIVELY about what’s to come between she and her co-stars — more specifically, with Emily Simpson, 45, and Gina Kirschenheiter, 37. “I think that with me, there are some issues and it is true,” she shared of her conflict with her co-stars. “They’re two. They’re a team. It’s two against one in certain parts of the show. We have our issues. Early on. Really early on.”

For the mother-of-three, she added how “difficult” it can be for her to navigate her relationship with someone when there’s “fighting” or “drama” in the mix. “[I]t’s hard for me. It’s not like I say, ‘Oh we’re done filming’ and take it out of your mind,” she shared. “When I pushed that plate […] in that scene [during Season 12], I cried for two months. ‘Oh my God, I can’t believe I acted that way.’ It really affects me. But now I’m good with it. Time heals everything.”

That last mention of healing had us wondering about her current status with her cast. Had time healed everything with Emily and Gina? “Yes, I’m in an OK place with everyone on the cast,” she revealed. “Go figure.”

As far as her relationship with other cast members goes, Shannon shared how she was actually “excited” for the return of “Fancy Pants” Heather Dubrow, 52, after the two faced their ups and downs over the years. “Yeah, we did have a rocky past in my very first season on the show, but after we reconciled and worked things through, we were always in what I consider to be in a good place,” she shared. “I was very excited to have her back.”

The Real Housewives of Orange County airs every Wednesday at 8pm ET on Bravo.

Cardi B dazzled in a sparkling pink dress at the ‘People’s Choice Awards,’ presenting actress Halle Berry with her ‘People’s Icon’ award.

Cardi B looked positively stunning on Tuesday when she strutted her stuff at the People’s Choice Awards in a form-fitting, sparkling pink dress. The “Money” rapper showed off her show-stopping curves in the bustier-style gown which featured a sweetheart neckline and was covered in square-shaped sequins. The mother-of-two opted for a signature Cardi look for her hair, wearing it dark and beautifully curled while pairing the dress with strappy silver heels and minimal jewelry.

The “WAP” rapper presented actress Halle Berry with her “People’s Icon” award at the event, and the two shared some sweet photos together backstage. Halle, for her part on the red carpet, echoed her Catwoman past in a blue sparkling, skin-tight jumpsuit that zipped down to show off her décolletage. She accessorized her look with silver pointed-toe Jimmy Choo pumps and dazzling drop Djula earrings, pulling her hair up in a structured, yet tousled bun.

While accepting her award, Halle shouted out her little ones in a tender speech. “My two little kids, they have to lose so much time with their mommy because I get to go work and do what I love, so thank you Nahla, thank you Maceo — I hope you find something in life that you can love and you can do with as much vigor and as much zest as I do what I do. I love you guys,” she said.

Cardi seemed to be the perfect person to present Halle with her award, since the two have become quite the BFFs lately. Back in November the pair came together for a video called “5 Rounds.” During the segment, Cardi dished about how she met the actress. “[L]et me tell you this tea,” Cardi tweeted, “her skin is so soft…I wanted to bite her shoulder.” We’d chuckle at the unexpected comment, but with Cardi, expect the unexpected!
