Tyrese has become an online powerhouse and has created a massive following on social media. Now, sitting at a whopping 4.5 million followers on Instagram, the singer/actor is using his voice on social networking to drive record sales.

People are going out in droves to purchase the LA native’s latest album, Black Rose. But what’s the incentive? A Skype call from the singer himself and knowing that 25% of album proceeds are going towards breast cancer research.

It is worth noting that The Fast and Furious actor has been following through on his promises to call fans who purchased several copies of the LP. Starting at 1:30 p.m PST, the singer will be Skyping live with his fans who purchased more than 10 albums and will also be on Facebook to talk about music and the state of r&b.

So far, it looks like the most copies purchased in one shot has been 20.

Wow Adonis – you went all the way – thank you so much!!! I can’t wait to say thank you on the Skype call later today…… Thank you sooooooo much!!! #BlackRoseMission were gonna get to this to #1 again on the TOP 200!!!! 25% of the overall sales are going to breast cancer research!!!   A photo posted by TYRESE (@tyrese) on

Earlier this week, the singer also thanked a fan who picked up 16 copies.


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.

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?
