Exclusive: Apryl Jones Clears Up Confusion About Omarion’s Tattoo Of Her Name

Published

Recently there has been some confusion as to why Omarion spelled the name of mother of his child, Apryl Jones, wrong on the tattoo that he got of her name on the back of his neck. Apryl and Omarion recently sat down with HipHollywood and set the record straight.

According to Apryl, Omarion did not spell her name wrong at all. After pictures came out of the tattoo, in which “Apryl” is spelled “April,” many speculated that the Tattoo artist had messed up the former B2K singer’s tattoo or that he just straight up didn’t know how to spell her name. It turns out that the “Apryl” happens to her stage name and that it is actually spelled “April” like the month. According to Apryl, she chose the name because she is a singer and spelling her name with a “y” was “unique” and “just a little different.”

“My government name is with an ‘i’ thats why he has it on his back with an ‘i’,” the Love and Hip Hop Hollywood star told HipHollywood.

5 Reasons You Need To Know Daveed Diggs

Published

on

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.
