On Monday morning, Deputy Commissioner of the NBA, Adam Silver held a press conference to officially announce that the Raptors will host the 2016 NBA All-Star game. Drake, who was present during the press conference, took a moment to address the media about joining the team.

“I travel the world performing, and everywhere I go, I preach the gospel that is Toronto. I love this city with all my heart and I just want to let you know that I am finally excited to be part of a team that I grew up a die hard fan of. I’m excited for the new vision,” Drake explained.

And with the All-Star game heading to Toronto, Drake will have major influence over the week’s events. “I think that All-Star 2016 is a phenomenal step, something that I dreamed of as a kid. I speak for everybody in this city when I say that I can’t wait for All-Star 2016,” he shared.

The 26-year-old added, “With All-Star coming here, there’s untapped night life, restaurants, culture. There’s so much to soak in. Our goal is in 2016 to truly showcase that, not only for the players, but for everybody … I think it’s going to be a week where everyone leaves and everyone agrees that it’s an incredible event.”

The Good, Bad And Ug… Less Flattering At The NAACP Image Awards

Published

on

This year, the NAACP Image Awards were held on Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day. As we all know, Dr. King had a dream, and for many on the red carpet it was a dream come true. But unfortunately, there were some nightmares … fashion nightmares.

Here’s our list of then stars who were hot and those who left us bothered. First, let’s start with the hot…

Halle Berry – Getty Images

And it doesn’t get hotter than Halle Berry showing half her body. Ms. Berry slayed in this Reem Acra gown reminding then youngin’s that she’s still got it.

Storm Reid – Getty Images

And speaking of youngin’s A Wrinkle In Time star Storm Reid may be relatively new to the game, but she showed up on the carpet looking like a vet in this adorable Yanina number.

Yara Shahidi also showed up serving #BlackGirlMagic in this beautiful Vera Wang dress.

Kerry Washington – Getty Images

And Kerry Washington killed it, also wearing black, in this Michael Kors stunner.

But as we know, with the good comes the bad, and the bad this time around came courtesy…

Danielle Brooks, we love our Orange Is The New Black boo, but this Michael Costello look just didn’t work for her.

Ava DuVernay – Getty Images

We also love Ava DuVernay, but unfortunately this Greta Constatine jumpsuit didn’t have us jumping for joy.

Lil Mama – Getty Images

Lil Mama left us wanting more in this navy blue feathery frock … actually it may be her hair that left us disappointed.

And adding to our disappointment was Letoya Luckett wearing a purple gown that had scallops and bows and slits … oh my!

Do you agree with our hots and nots?
