(Video) Yaya DaCosta Seems To Be Doing A Great Job As Whitney Houston In Upcoming Biopic!

IFWT_Yaya_DaCosta_Whitney_Houston_Biopic

There has been much negative banter about the upcoming Whitney Houston biopic – Whitney’s mother speaking against its making, the movie’s director, Angela Bassett and Bobbi Kristina going back-and-forth and the biggest fail being the decision not to use Whitney’s actual voice [songs will be sung by Deborah Cox]. However, the show must go on.

ET got a behind-the-scenes look into the production of the upcoming movie and spoke with all major players, including Yaya DaCosta – playing Whitney Houston. DaCosta may have Whitney’s movements down packed, but to see how she will portray her to the T will have to wait until it’s Lifetime release next year.

With all of the negative attention the movie has acquired, Yaya tries to stay away from social media to remain level-headed. “I kind of shut off all social media because I didn’t want to be distracted by the expectations, the naysayers,” she says. That’s all you can do.

Hit the jump for a behind-the-scenes look into how things are working out on set.

(Photos) Sub-Tweet Central: Chris Brown & Karrueche Go At It Over ‘Loyalty’

Chris Brown & Karrueche

Another day, another social media battle between on-again/off-again lovers, Chris Brown and Karrueche Tran. Will these two ever quit going at it? I really do enjoy them as a couple, but stuff like this makes me start to really dislike the pairing. Breezy and Kae are 25 and 26, respectively…a little too old to constantly being going at it like teenagers!

Though everything seemed fine when the pair were spotted out together last week, Chris held a charity kickball game over the weekend that Kae was noticeably absent from, though it was soon revealed on her Instagram that she was shooting her first movie. That’s a pretty good reason to be absent from something! However, tweets from both Chris and Kae (of which Chris’ has now been deleted) seem to show that there’s a bit of tension behind the absence. Check out what was said in the gallery!

(Photos) Model Ayisha Diaz Blasts Bow Wow For Cheating & Being Bitter

Ayisha Diaz x Bow Wow

I figured this wouldn’t last long. Bow Wow Shad Moss is such a cornball. But that’s none of my business (*sips Kermit’s tea.)

Anyway, 106 & Park host Bow Wow and model Ayisha Diaz announced their relationship via Instagram back in May, but the romance has since crashed and burned, and new allegations of cheating and gold-digging have come up. Bow Wow was first to call attention to the situation, posting a photo online over the weekend with a caption taking shots at exes that have used him for money and fame. Ayisha then followed up with a series of now-deleted posts, explaining that Bow is just bitter because she’s in a new relationship, and insinuating that he had cheated on her. Check out the pics in the gallery.

(Photos) WTF?! 3 Months After Big Sean Breakup, Naya Rivera Is MARRIED – To Someone Else!

Naya Rivera weds Ryan Dorsey

And this, folks, is the true definition of going “0 to 100″…real quick! Just 3 short months after calling off the engagement with rapper Big Sean (whom she was dating for a year,) ‘GLEE’ star Naya Rivera has tied the knot with actor Ryan Dorsey.

The surprise wedding took place in Cabo over the weekend, along with a “small group of close family.” Apparently the pair met 4 years ago, but their friendship blossomed into a relationship when she split with Sean. “Our special day was fated and everything we could have ever asked for,” the couple said in a joint statement. “True love always prevails.”

Ummm…what? So either A – Naya is still feeling stupid after the breakup and just wanted to divert attention, B – she’s pregnant, or C – they were creeping the entire time. I’m inclined to roll with A or B. What do you guys think?

(Photos) Reunited At Last! Joe Budden Pictured In The Studio With Long-Time Rival Ransom

IFWT_joe_budden_ransom

Looks like Jersey emcees Joe Budden and Ransom have finally put all the beef behind them and have reunited in the studio! The two had a small convo on Twitter a few months ago revealing that they had peaced up the issues from their rocky past. However, after Joey’s fellow Jersey rapper affiliate Tsu Surf posted a pic of the three of them in the studio, it became official that it is ALL GOOD on both sides. The beef between Joe and Ransom sparked a few years ago, resulting in a bunch of diss tracks and even alleged physical altercations. Before all of the drama, the two Jersey City rappers were very close leading all the way back to the A-Team days when Budden put both Ransom and Hitchcock on. It’s always good to see talented emcees from Jersey link up and do work on a track. Can’t wait to hear what these three have brewing up in the studio! Check out the flicks in the gallery. #JERSEYYYYYYYY!
