Published

Jay-Z was spotted taking his wife Beyonce and daughter Blue Ivy to lunch at Cafe Nervosa in Toronto. Jay is in Toronto to kick off his “Legends of Summer Tour” with Justin Timberlake. The two will perform tonight at The Rogers Centre.

But while Jay is hitting the stage in TO tonight, Beyonce will be continuing her “Mrs. Carter Show World Tour” in Chicago.

The Chicago stop comes on the heels of Bey’s concert in her hometown of Houston on Monday night where we heard she went all out, even performing her controversial track “Bow Down/I Been on.”

And of course her hubby Jay was right there in the audience. Jay-Z’s album Magna Carta Holy Grail topped the Billboard Charts on Tuesday with 528,000 units sold, and Jay also announced he’ll be hitting the road  for the “Magna Carta World Tour.”

Congrats to the Carters!

Netflix’s ‘Step Sisters’ Is ‘Bring It On’ … But Way More Woke!

Netflix is getting ready to “Bring It On” … in more ways than one. The streaming service’s new flick Step Sisters is reminiscent of the 90s dance film, but delves deeper into racial themes like cultural appropriation, tokenization and interracial dating.

In the film Megalyn Echikunwoke (Arrow) plays the president of a black sorority who is tasked with teaching one of the campus’ white sororities how to step for a charity competition. At first glimpse the film seems to be stepping into a can of worms — and had folks on Twitter up in arms, but the creators and cast told HipHollywood it isn’t about cultural appropriation but instead cultural exchange.

“There’s a strong political message, and there’s a lot of racial content,” said Nia Jervier. “But I think that the pill that may be difficult to swallow is dipped in honey, because it’s funny.”

What also helps is that producer/writers like Lena Waithe (Masters of None), Chuck Hayward (Dear White People) and Ben Cory Jones (Underground) are behind the project – so you know it’s woke.

“At the end of the day, Jamila the lead character in our minds she’s reaching over to show them a part of our culture. It doesn’t dilute our culture,” said Jones. ” And I love that we can take stepping and evolve that into issues of race and culture.”

Step Sisters begins streaming on Netflix January 20th.
