All you OutKast fans get ready for the unicorns, feather-fringe pants, gold grills and jheri curl juice because your favorite duo might be reuniting next year. Word is they’re linking up for Coachella, which jumps off on April 11, 2014 in Indio, California. Insiders say it’s looking like a go, and if so, this will mark Andre 3000 and Big Boi’s first time space-walking on stage together since 2004. (And just in time to celebrate the 20th anniversary of Southernplayalisticadillacmuzik). All I have to say is: prepare to board the spaceship to planet “Idlewild,” ‘cause it’s about to go down!
Xscape to Reunite on This Season of RHOA?
Speaking of reunions, ‘90s lady group Xscape just might be joining forces on the current season of Real Housewives of Atlanta. (Am I dreamin’???).

Well, I guess all that’s in the past because all four ladies are rumored to make an appearance on Bravo’s biggest ratchet reality show to date. No word on whether they’ll be performing, sitting down for a civilized convo, or simply pulling off wigs and fake body parts, but whatever the case, this gone be good y'all!

Ms. Mary says she watched the late legend dwindle in the years leading up to her demise and she refuses “to go out like that.” MJB has had a long history of alcohol and drug abuse, but ditched her habits a few years back. While she relapsed on the booze for a short stint, the R&B diva says she’s been abstaining for a year. Kudos to the queen for keeping it clean…no wonder her body is looking Amazon fine.
