Before Issa Rae‘s big night at the NAACP Image Awards, she had the blackest, dopest, pool party to celebrate her birthday.  And she basically made a certain episode of "Insecure" happen in real life.  Go inside the bomb bash….

Malibu Chillin’!

"Insecure" creator and star Issa Rae turned 33 recently, so what better way than to celebrate with fellow dope black folks in Hollywood than a MAJORLY turned up pool party.

There’s nothing like hella drinks, celebrity friends and a super lit DJ to set it off right.   Issa had most of her cast members from "Insecure" there loose off the Goose – Amanda Seales, Jay Ellis, Yvonne Orji, Lil Rel Howry, Wade Allain Marcus and more.  She posed it up with The DuBoises before they hopped in the pool.  Yes, black folks actually got in the water (after getting talked about by Amanda and Lil Rel).

Yvonne, social comedian Quinta Bronson, Broderick Washington and more were all over IG letting us in on everything that was going down.  And it was A LOT.

Then things got extra litty.  OK Amanda!  We see you….

Issa’s co-stars and celeb friends – Hey Wale! – were def on one.  We’ve got the video receipts (including Issa’s birthday twerk session with her bestie and fellow birthday girl Devin – to prove it.

Oh, and if this Malibu mansion looks familiar, that’s because it’s the same house from the "Insecure" episode where Issa had a meltdown in the hot tub with her girls, then rushed home to make up with Lawrence….who had already moved ALL his ish out their apartment.

Robin Theade, the hilarious Natasha Rothwell (Kelli), fine ** Y’lan Noel (Daniel) and more came through too. Check the videos below:

 

 

IssaBirfday! Had a full blast celebrating @issarae bday with fam coming together to get our entire black ass lives in Malibu (at the same house we shot Insecure Season 1:EP 8) electric sliding, eating potato salad, and of course singing Stevie Wonder “Happy Birthday to Yaaaaa”

Today Is Michelle Obama’s 54th Birthday

It’s Michelle Obama‘s b-day and there has never been a better reason to celebrate.

We can’t even begin to describe how grateful we are to have lived in a time that saw Michelle Obama, in all her melanin-y splendor, take residence in the White House, a house built by slaves as she so poignantly reminded us, and elegantly represent her people.

From all of us here at Bossip we’d like to wish Michelle LaVaughn Robinson Obama a very, very happy birthday.

Flip the page a few times to smell some of the flowers that Mrs. Obama is getting on social media.

The Smolletts, Rep. Maxine Waters & Sen. Kamala Harris March To Celebrate MLK Day While Y’alls President Went Golfing + ‘I Am MLK Jr.’ Trailer

The Young, Black, and Fabulous®

YBF celebs and politicians hit the streets of LA to celebrate MLK Day. Meanwhile, y’all president chose to go golfing on the day of service. Peep the pics, plus the new “I Am MLK. Jr.” trailer inside…

 photo TimesUpNow6.jpg

Thousands of people came out to flood the streets of LA to celebrate at the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day parade down MLK Boulevard and Crenshaw Boulevard.

This year’s theme was inspired by the motivational words made by our forever First Lady Michelle Obama, “When They Go Low, We Go High,” to honor the legacy of the civil rights activist.

 photo TimesUpNow3.jpg

“Underground” actress Jurnee Smollett, her brother/”Empire” star Jussie Smollett, Congresswoman Maxine Waters, and U.S. Senator Kamala Harris (who served as the parade’s grand marshal) joined the crowds of people to march through the streets for the parade.

Jurnee even brought her baby boy Hunter Zion Bell to participate in the festivities.

Senator Harris recently made history alongside Sen. Cory Booker. They became the 2nd & 3rd African-Americans to ever serve on the Judiciary Committee in its 200+ year history. Woot!

Peep a few videos and flicks from the parade below:

Fun times!

Meanwhile…

While all living presidents participated in some act of service to celebrate MLK Day, y’alls current president decided he would enjoy a relaxing day to golf. His 100th+ day doing so….at his own property.

Despite telling Americans they should perform an act of community service to observe MLK, he did the complete opposite. Anyone shocked? We aren’t.

Trump made his way to the Trump International Golf Club in West Palm Beach in the morning and then he cruised on back to Mar-a-Lago in the afternoon.

Hypocrite. But at least he wasn’t doing fake activism, we guess.

In other MLK news…

There’s a new documentary on the life and legacy of America’s legendary statesman, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. in the works, titled "I Am MLK Jr."

"I Am MLK Jr." will tell the story and celebrate the life of this American icon from an engaging contemporary perspective structured around seminal events of the Civil Rights Movement. The documentary will feature interviews with key figures, ranging from history-changing civil rights-era activists to contemporary writers, activists and historians along with influencers in sports, entertainment and media.

Peep the trailer above.

"I Am MLK Jr." will premiere on Monday, April 2nd (two days before the 50th anniversary of his assassination) from 8:00-10:00 p.m. ET/PT on the Paramount Network.

Burger King Employee Confronts His Boss About Reduced Hours

A very disgruntled Burger King employee walked into his job armed on Tuesday, demanding his boss for more hours on the schedule, according to authorities.

The fast food manager called 911 that night after the 30-year-old employee stormed the restaurant and confronted him. The man was pressing his employer for more hours after having his schedule reduced to just 30 hours per week, the report states. He told the manager from the start that he did not want to “shoot the place up.”

Ten people, four of whom were customers, managed to escape the restaurant out of the back door, while police rushed in and nabbed the worker. Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department officers found semi-automatic rifle parts and a machete in the suspect’s bag inside the restaurant and in the suspect’s pocket, they found 15 bullets.

Authorities did not immediately respond to emails requesting comment.

EXCLUSIVE: ‘GUHH: ATL’ Cast Dishes On DM Threats, Zonnique’s Dream Collabo & Crazy Lives After Season Debut

The Young, Black, and Fabulous®

TheYBF.com caught up with the “Growing Up Hip Hop: ATL” cast to see what’s in store for season 2 of their reality series. Find out what they told us about their DM struggle, dealing with fans and Zonnique’s dream collaboration inside…

Life for the “Growing Up Hip Hop: ATL” cast has been a roller coaster ride for the cast to say the least, and they’re all ready for round 2 of the reality madness.

The entire cast — Zonnique Pullins, Reginae Carter, Bow Wow, Ayana Fite, Shaniah Mauldin and Brandon Barnes — was front-and-center for the show’s season 2 screening at the Woodruff Arts Center’s Rich Theater in Midtown Atlanta.  YBF ATL correspondent Kiara Walker chopped it up with a few members of the cast to find out what’s really going on with them right now.

Watch it all above.

 photo guh11.jpg

As you all know, Zonnique is making waves in the music industry, following in the footsteps of her mother/XSCAPE singer Tiny Harris. As a newbie in the game, she likely has a long list of artists she would love to collaborate with. But, who is her DREAM collaboration?

"Rihanna, for sure," the “Patience” singer told YBF correspondent Kiara. Hmm…we wonder what type of fire track they would come up with.

In case you missed, peep the sexy visuals to her track “Patience” HERE.

Reginae Carter, Lil Wayne & Toya Wright’s daughter, has a lot going on in her life. The 19-year-old is gearing up to be a big sister, she’s moving in with her bestie Zonnique and she has seemingly matured when it comes to clapping back at haters on social media. Check out our exclusive interview with the rap millionaire’s daughter HERE.

Star and executive producer Bow Wow rolled up to the event with his rumored new girlfriend Kiyomi Leslie on his arm.

Last season, we saw Bow Wow trying to make things work with his daughter’s mom Joie Chavis. But, it’s rumored that Joie is now getting close with rapper Future.

Star Shaniah Mauldin brought her dad Jermaine Dupri (who guest stars on the show) along as her date.

Brandon Barnes has some big projects he’s working on that fans will get to see in season 2, including launching his very own record label. He’s also working with developing singer/reality star Jhonni Blaze and he has his own girl group he’s working with as well.

“I didn’t grow up like my other cast members and all that. I’m not rich haven’t been rich plan on being rich. But you know I don’t know what it’s like to get everything I’ve always wanted,” he said. “I wouldn’t say I’ve changed since last season. I’m still me. If anything I think I’m more wiser.”

Speaking of Jhonni Blaze…

 photo jblaze.jpg

We caught up with Johnni Blaze to ask her about that heated scene between her and Bow Wow that was shown in the new season’s trailer. Was it real? Or was Bow Wow showing out for the cameras?

“You will have to tune in and see,” she responded. Of course.

However, she did open up on how it is working on her vocals with Brandon.

“Brandon is family. My manager is Debra Antney. Him working with me and building my voice, it was a blessing to advance my talent with him. I love him to death," she said.

Star Ayana Fite hit the carpet with her dad DJ Hurricane.

We caught up with the fashion designer who dished on her and her girlfriend’s DM struggle.

“The craziest thing is actually in my girl’s DMs. People be writing Amy and be like ‘That’s my woman. Leave her alone.’ She shows me DMs everyday of people threatening her because she’s my girlfriend.”

Lordt. Can y’all relate?
