Exclusive: Mario, B.o.B React To Beyonce’s Surprise Album



Beyonce’s number one fans weren’t the only ones pleasantly astounded by the singer’s surprise album. The 32-year-old’s 14 song, 17 video, visual album even shocked some her friends and family in the music industry.

While on the red carpet for Floyd Mayweather’s 9th Annual Celebrity Classic Toy Drive and Basketball Game, HipHollywood caught up with Mario who raved about Bey’s marketing strategy (or lack thereof).

“When you got like a $10 million budget and you can just pretty much whatever you want, you can do things like that,” Mario told HH. “I’m a huge Beyonce fan and I’m so happy for her. I feel like she’s balancing her life and her career very well and she’s still keeping it sexy. She’s still keeping it classy. And she’s still keeping the integrity of the art. I think that she is an icon,” Mario shared.

HipHollywood also caught up with rapper, B.o.B during LA’s Power 106 Cali Christmas to talk about his reaction to Bey’s surprise.

“I commend her for that, dropping an album just out of nowhere. You know when Beyonce drops an album it’s going to be dope,” he said. “It’s a dope, unorthodox move to help people to stop thinking inside the box.”

Beyonce’s self-titled album is available now.

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



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.

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?
