Ciara Flaunts Locs Like Fiancé Future
First Ciara was dressing her baby Future in leather pants and shirts like his daddy. Now she’s twisted herself up in faux locs like her soon-to-be hubby. (I guess Future put that “voilá! magic!” on more than just his music.) CiCi recently debuted her new ’do on IG, and although the shaggy style is completely unexpected coming from the signature straight-stranded diva, I must say the waist-length, multicolored Bob Marley look is quite cute on Ms. Body Party. Just don’t start Auto-Tuning like your man, and we’re good.

Common Says Beef with Drake was Over Serena Williams
We can now add Drake and Common to the Nas/Jay Z category of “women-fueled hip-hop beefs,” because the Chicago hip-hopper we all thought had a little common sense recently revealed that his beef with Drizzy was sparked by his ex-boo, Serena Williams. (Boy oh boy… Drake and his women wars.) If you don’t recall the unnecessary drama, let me refresh your memory. Back in 2011, rumors began circulating that Drake had a thing going on with the tennis star after he sent her a flirty message on Twitter. Fast forward to 2012, and Common starts taking shots at the Young Money MC on “Sweet.” Thus, hip-hop’s softest rap war began.
Though at the time of the back-and-forth, Common denied “Sweet” was aimed at Drake or that Serena fueled the feud, the incense-burning rap vet now admits his love for the racket queen did in fact ignite the beef. “[A]t that time, I think it was the Drake/Serena situation,” he now says. “I didn’t know what was going on with that. I ain’t know if he was throwing things, shots at me. Like you know, this is my ex and you know we’re kinda going our separate ways. Unfortunately, the war might have been over a girl, even though at the time I never said that.”
If his dressing like Erykah Badu with beanie hats and crotchet pants hadn’t already schooled us, I guess this is just more proof that Common goes hard for his womens.

Terius “The-Dream” Nash is a married man again! The ol’ slickster reportedly eloped at San Francisco City Hall with his mystery lady and “put a ring on it” this past Friday. Dream confirmed the nuptials with a photo on Instagram that featured “THE MRS.,” her ring, and a mushy message about how much he loves her. The hit-making machine furthered his drunk in love session by posting a bundle of roses shaped into a heart, along with yet another lovey-dovey caption.
But the true beauty in all this is that he ex-wife/mother of his daughter Violet, Christina Milian, reposted the rose photo to her own IG account, applauding her former flame and his new lady on their union. (That’s grown woman ish!) I guess I’ll ditto that and send congrats to Dream and his unknown boo!
