Season 3 of Power ended with quite the cliffhanger, and fans are anxiously awaiting season 4 to learn Ghost’s fate. Judging by the pattern the Starz series has displayed in the first three seasons, we likely won’t know the full story until next summer, but at least we can get some hints until then! The cast are back in NYC shooting for next season as we speak, and paparazzi have been able to get shots of Ghost, Tommy, Tasha and the rest of the gang on set – even Keisha! So breathe easy – Lala’s character wasn’t killed off! We also see Ghost in his prison suit on the phone, and an annoyed Tasha in the courtroom. Check out the pics and a video from the set below!
It appears that fans are going to have to wait even longer for the next season of Gabrielle Union’s hit show Being Mary Jane. Gabrielle just filed a lawsuit against the show’s network, BET, claiming they’re trying to get her to do two seasons for the price of one. Gabrielle says that network execs promised her multiple times that there would never be more than 13 episodes in a season. Her contract also states that she gets a pay raise from $150k per episode to $165k per episode in Season 5. Instead, BET is reportedly trying to cram 20 episodes into season 4 and spacing them out, instead of making it two seasons!
Earlier this month, MTV announced that they’d signed a deal with A$AP Rocky in a new venture called MTV Labs, where he’d create and curate content over the next two years. “MTV is a name we grew up with – everyone knows them as innovators and champions of building artist’s careers,” Rocky initially said in a statement. “I’m honored to have this opportunity and can’t wait to show people what we have been working on.” In a new clip posted to Rocky’s IG, he previews a bit of that with budding artist Lil Uzi Vert, who he recently helped get an insane chain from Ben The Baller. Looks like we’ll be seeing a lot from these two in the near future! Check out the promo clip below.

The leaked tape of Donald Trump’s deplorable 2005 comments was a conversation with Billy Bush, and Bush was swiftly suspended from his current role on The Today Show. “I know we’ve all been deeply troubled by the revelations of the past 48 hours,” Noah Oppenheim, head of The Today Show, said in a statement today. “Let me be clear—there is simply no excuse for Billy’s language and behavior on that tape. NBC has decided to suspend Billy, pending further review of this matter.” The show addressed his absence very briefly today, once with Savannah Guthrie, the second with Al Roker. Check out both clips below. Wonder if he’ll be back!
Earlier this month, Jay Z announced a two-year film and television development deal with the Weinstein Company. He quickly announced his first project, a mini-series on Spike TV about Kalief Browder, the high school student who was held at Rikers Island for three years without trial for the theft of a backpack, and later killed himself upon his release. Now, he’s announced the second project, and it’s equally as powerful. This one will be for NBC, and it will be a series about Nicholas Irving, the first African-American to serve as a Special Operations Direct Action Sniper in the 3rd Ranger Battalion for the U.S. Military.

Production on the Britney Spears [unauthorized] Lifetime biopic is underway in Vancouver, and last night, they shot a major scene – the infamous umbrella meltdown. As TMZ points out, however, there were some pretty glaring inaccuracies in Lifetime’s version, as theirs shows Britney surrounded by paparazzi on a busy street as she lunges at all of them with her umbrella, then hops in her convertible to ride off. In real life, Britney hopped out of a silver sedan and swung wildly at a camera man at a gas station. Compare both versions below!
