25 Things Overheard When Watching Girls Trip In a Hotel Room Full of Men During a Bachelor Party in New Orleans

25 Things Overheard When Watching <i>Girls Trip</i> In a Hotel Room Full of Men During a Bachelor Party in New Orleans

This time last week, I was in New Orleans for Panama’s bachelor party weekend. I arrived Friday afternoon, and after the fellas already in New Orleans returned from the plantation tour , we gathered in Panama’s hotel room to kick it and determine our plans for the night.

Back to the Essence: Tracy Morgan Returns to Bed-Stuy Community Garden to Kick Off 2nd Season of The Last O.G.

Back to the Essence: Tracy Morgan Returns to Bed-Stuy Community Garden to Kick Off 2nd Season of <i>The Last O.G.</i>

The Last O.G., the number one show on TBS, is heartening, sly and oh-so-real. It portrays in popular culture the collateral damage of mass incarceration—the lost time, the regrets, the broken ties, yet, the thing that makes The Last O.G. so compelling, so irresistible, is that it wraps that heavy, weighty reality in levity and grace. Plus headliner Tracy Morgan is hilarious.

To kick off its...

The 2019 NBA Awards Were a Slam Dunk

The 2019 NBA Awards Were a Slam Dunk

As a lifelong hoops head, attending the NBA Awards is a bit of a surreal experience. I ran into Nick Anderson, and the 15-year-old Orlando Magic fan buried deep within me had to resist the urge to um … “talk to him” about missing those four free throws in the 1995 NBA Finals. Speaking with NBA Hall of Famer Isiah Thomas elicited a far more favorable reaction. We discussed the polarizing...

2019 MTV Movie & TV Awards: Lizzo Came, Lizzo Saw, Lizzo Conquered

2019 MTV Movie & TV Awards: Lizzo Came, Lizzo Saw, Lizzo Conquered

The MTV Movie & TV Awards are a lot.

Part spectacle, part accolade, it essentially serves as an annual ode to Viacom’s colorful cast of characters and unheralded heroes. From the expansive Love and Hip-Hop fraternity to generations of Real World housemates, it can best be described as a couch potato’s wonderland.

But what happens when you sprinkle in a little outside Hollywood influence? A...

PSA of the Day: Stop Asking Women If They’re Pregnant (Because Sometimes, It’s Just a Food Baby)

You know what’s really dope? When you’re out here, living your best new-monied life, getting your step-and-repeat and twirl on in a Michael Kors gown (that you could easily pay for, but were instead loaned) on a Golden Globes afterparty red carpet where you’re nobody’s plus-one. The paparazzi knows your name and is screaming it because you’ve arrived, in more ways than one.

It may have been a...

Tiffany Haddish Bombs, Drinks with Fans Instead

Tiffany Haddish wasn’t ready for her set. It didn’t stop a few fans from having a good time.

Performing to a packed house at the James L. Knight center in Miami, the usually poised Haddish didn’t have her best stuff as the new year approached. As the set progressed, Haddish forgot a few of her jokes, and realized the jokes she could remember weren’t connecting as expected.
