We’re just wondering how the parents are going to feel? Ah, parents and their opinions. Let us know in the comments if you think it’s too much, or if you’re down for the cause!

Meghan Trainor and John Legend Sing In the Rain In Their New Video

Meghan Trainor has proven to be one of hottest new stars on the block. After her mega-mongous hit, ‘All About That Bass’ ruled the world summer ’14, many thought she’d disappear into the pop music blackhole where all the other one-hit-wonders sing for tips. Two bonafide hits later, Meghan is back … with a soulful leading man, John Legend, by her side.

In the video, Trainor makes googly eyes with the pop/R&B living Legend while they both get wet in the rain on a fire escape. Talk about dangerous! The song’s cool for the summer, but it’s definitely no ‘Bang Dem Sticks,’ Title’s clear standout track. Let’s pray she sends that to pop radio her fifth go-around. Also, can we talk about this being Meg’s FOURTH single. You know an artist has made it when they can get that far on one album with no flop promo tracks.

Lastly, no, you won’t see John’s back side in the video. They keep it classy. But feel free to click here for Johnny Boy’s goods.

Michael Ealy Set Twitter on Fire in His New Movie Trailer

Michael Ealy has been in the game for quite some time, playing fan favorite roles in movies like Barbershop 1 and 2, as well as the Think Like a Man movie series. Who remembers that lip lock with him and Evie-Eve (oh she bad bad)?

Recently, he’s played a lead role in TV shows like Almost Human and The Following, but Ealy’s got some new tricks up his sleeve in The Perfect Guy. We’re talking crazy psycho stalker tricks. The trailer set Twitter ablaze, thrusting Ealy to the forefront of trending topics all day. The only bad news is that you have to wait until September to watch the movie. For now, let’s enjoy the summer and reply the trailer to infinity. While watching, don’t be afraid to yell, “Run Sanaa! Run, girl!”

 

Kelly Clarkson’s Cover of ‘Bitch Better Have My Money’ is the Best Thing You’ll Hear All Day

Is today Sunday, because Kelly Clarkson just took a borderline-perfect trap song into a soulful hymn. Rihanna’s sassed up single, ‘Bitch Better Have My Money’ is perfect for the club, but Kelly pulls off the perfect lounge cover in ‘Bitch Y’all Better Have My Money.’ Added bonus, no cussing, so it’s perfect 4 da kidz. Check it out!

Eight Withdrawals Symptoms Due to the Wait for #R8

Rihanna. Pop queen. Chart-topping musician. Leader of the galaxy. We’ve all been waiting for #R8 and Rihanna has told us time and time again that we will get it when it’s ready. She’s beginning to sound like every Caribbean mom that hits you with a wooden spoon when you ask her when’s dinner ready for the fifth time. Who knows when she’ll drop this album. It could be tomorrow, it could be October [Rihanna-ween]. One thing’s for sure, the wait has been painful.

5. Feargiphy (1)Did Rihanna see my mean tweets about me not caring? Or how about my incessant Instagram comments? I hope she doesn’t see them and drag me with an iconic clapback?

Ms. Fenty would never put out a basic album. She needs to make sure it has zero flaws.

5 Reasons Why Bessie Was the Baddest Bitch of the 1920s

The ‘Bessie’ biopic premiered on HBO Saturday and it definitely is a must-see. Seriously, if you have HBO GO, go and watch that thang. Now, I’m going to be honest, I didn’t’t know much about Bessie Smith prior to watching the flick, other than the fact that she was a musical icon in the day. But who knew she was such a bad ass? And claps for Queen Dana Owens Latifah for embodying Smith in this iconic role, freed areolas and all.

So, Bessie was not the one to mess with. It felt like half of the movie was her letting everyone know how things were going to go. In the words of the colorful woman I met on the train who yelled at the entire subway car from Flatbush to Times Square, “these bitches think they running me, but I’m running them ALL. MUAHAHAHAHA.”

Anywho, here are five moments from the movie that knocked my socks off. Disclaimer, there are well over five moments, but you’re going to have to watch the movie to witness it all.

1. She put a smackdown on anyone who disrespected her.

When a sleaze ball gets grabby, strike one is in order. But when he calls you a fat bitch, game over. Unfortunately this vengeful encounter landed Bessie in the hospital with major knife wounds, but it was obviously worth it. NO REGRETS?

2. She’s always on *top*

Now when Richard, played by Mike Epps, popped on screen, I thought, “Oh my gosh, it’s Uncle Buck.” Then things got a little thirty. Yes, there was an attraction between Richard and Bessie, but she was taken, so nothing was going to happen with them… right? WRONG. Bessie gets what she wants, and can ya blame her? She’s a queen for godsakes.

3. Her one liners are everything!

Throughout the movie, plenty of men tell Bessie what they think she should do, how they think she should act, and where they think her career should be going. But can anyone really tell Bessie how to live? Hell nawh. This has got to be one of the best lines of the movie.

“I can give it as hard as I can take it, and I don’t mind going to jail.”

Another great quote she made when her husband got mad after she bought a house:

“I ain’t see your name on my bank book.”

4. She stopped the KKK’s foolery

Bessie was there having a good time, singing and whatnot. Then here comes the Ku Klux Klan practicing their racism and whatnot. Fire, guns, axes. They were ready for a fight. Pff, they *thought* they were ready, but Bessie doesn’t roll like that. One kick and she had they running away scared. Fools.

5. She will throw a drink in a stranger’s face if she has to.

*Cue scene* Hey Bessie, I was thinking of a writing a book called, “N*gger Heaven.” What do you think? *throws drink in guy’s face* Come on, dude. Are you out of your mind or nah?
