Brandy Performs During Niecy Nash’s ‘It’s Hard To Fight Naked’ Book Signing Party



Niecy Nash celebrated her new book, It’s Hard To Fight Naked, with her closest friends and family on Tuesday afternoon with a very intimate book signing party in Beverly Hills.

HipHollywood caught up with Niecy on the red carpet who shared that the book is a fun read, but has a lot of take away. “What’s inside that book? All kinds of deliciousness. It’s a guide on how to get the love of your life … and how to keep it,” Nash explained.

Brandy Norwood, a dear friend of Nash’s, performed “He Is”, from her Full Moon album during the soiree, and had nothing but amazing things to say about the diva. “I know that she really loves her husband and she really loves love, and she wants all of her friends to feel the way she feels in her life,” Brandy raved.

Other celebrity guests included HipHollywood’s very own, Kevin Frazier, who hosted the event, Basketball Wives LA star Tami Roman, and Niecy’s television husband, Cedric the Entertainer, who raved about his The Soul Man co-star.

“This book is right in line with her personality and what she’s all about. She definitely even tries to deliver that on the show,” Cedric shared. “She is really adamant about us being a loving couple on TV and that’s what we are about with each other,” Cedric added.

It’s Hard To Fight Naked is in stores now.

Check out some of the afternoon’s festivities below, including a snippet of Brandy’s performance:

5 Reasons You Need To Know Daveed Diggs



If you don’t know the name Daveed Diggs you will now! The Oakland native is definitely one to watch in Hollywood. Here are five reasons why.

1. He has already taken Broadway by storm.

In 2016 Diggs nabbed a Tony and a Grammy award for his role as Marquis de Lafayette/ Thomas Jefferson in “Hamilton.” Believe it or not Diggs didn’t even audition for the role. While substitute teaching in Marin County, CA he met Hamilton’s eventual star and creator Lin Manuel-Miranda and director, Thomas Kail who invited him to join their free-style rap group and later helped them craft the fast-rapping revolutionary. 

2. He’s funny. 

Diggs is proving he’s also got some amazing comedy chops with two memorable recurring sitcom roles: one as Perry, the crush du jour for Kimmy (Ellie Kemper) on Netflix’s Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, and the other on ABC’s black-ish as Johan, the free-spirited brother of Rainbow (Tracee Ellis Ross). In fact, Black-ish creator Kenya Barris wrote the role for Diggs after being “blown away” by his performance on stage.

3. His first feature film Wonder is in theaters now.

In the film based on the New York Times best-selling novel of the same name, Diggs plays Mr. Browne the fifth grade teacher at the school where lead Jacob Tremblay attends. Diggs landed the role after wrapping his run in “Hamilton” and told HH it was like a crash course in film acting alongside Julia Roberts and Owen Wilson.

4. He’s a rapper. 

His experimental noise rap group Clipping has garnered a major cult following on Youtube. Their LP CLPPNG was an Album Of The Week back in 2014. And in 2016 the trio performed on The Late Late Show with James Corden to promote the release of their six-track EP Wriggle. 

5. He is executive producer of ABC’s The Mayor.  

The show about a struggling young rapper (Brandon Micheal Hall) who runs for local office (and wins) to boost his popularity, debuted this Fall and already is garnering wave reviews. Not surprisingly Diggs and his Clipping bandmates William Hutson and Jonathan Snipes, also produce all the music for the show.
