Good news for Sean Diddy Combs — the rapper won’t be charged with a felony following his alleged brawl with UCLA assistant coach Sal Alosi. According to TMZ, the hip-hop mogul’s assault case has been rejected by the Los Angeles County District Attorney. The “Bad Boy for Life” artist isn’t off the hook though. His case will now be reviewed by the Los Angeles City Attorney, which means he could still face misdemeanor charges. As previously reported, Diddy claims he was acting in self defense after getting into [...] »
The end of June has been wild for Diddy: First, he got arrested for kettlebell stuff. Then, he reunited the Bad Boy family at the Bet Awards — and fell down a trap door. And now he's teamed up with Pharrell to remind everyone who he is, with "Finna Get Loose," one big feeling you can feel with your ears. (Well, he is many things, but in this scenario: rapper.) The production on this track, courtesy of Pharrell, is undeniably fantastic. The lyrics are ... well, a blend of bland and scary (there is a reference in here to Stephen King's Cujo, whoa!). As a package deal, though, it seems to accomplish its goal — even if the person in the background is panting really hard and should probably receive medical attention instead of dancing. Anyway, as far as reminders go, it's pretty fun. Diddy even goes a little bit »

To celebrate the 20th anniversary of Diddy's Bad Boy Records, the rapper gathered many of the label's original artists together for an epic performance at the Bet Awards on Sunday. The all-star roster, which included Lil' Kim, Faith Evans, Sheek Louch, and even Ma$e, hit the stage to belt out some of their biggest nostalgia-inducing hits; hearing "Mo Money Mo Problems," "All About the Benjamins," "Love Like This," "Hypnotize," and 112's "Peaches & Cream" will definitely take you back in the best way possible. In one sad/hilarious moment, Diddy fell into the same hole that Lil' Kim popped out of - but he kept the party going, which is the true sign of a legendary artist. Watch the amazing Bad Boy reunion above now, and check out more signs that you were a teenager in the 2000s. »
Lil' Kim looked like this just a couple months ago ... so her appearance last night was a big surprise! The 40-year-old rapper joined Diddy, Ma$e, Faith Evans and 112 for a Bad Boy records reunion performance at the Bet Awards on Sunday, where the group performed a number of hits including "Peaches & Cream," "Mo Money, Mo Problems," "Feels So Good" and "Love Like This." Pharrell Williams, French Montana, The Lox and Chris Brown all took part in the epic tribute as well. Warning: Some graphic language in the video below. Kim popped up midway through the performance, coming out of the trap door in the stage Diddy fell into only moments earlier. See her entrance around the 6-minute mark. Sporting blonde hair and a sheer black bodysuit, Lil' Kim looked great a year after giving birth to daughter Royal Reign. She was seen heading to a party after the show, »

The 2015 Bet Awards provided an incredible display of starpower during its nearly four-hour telecast: Nicki Minaj, Smokey Robinson, Janet Jackson, Diddy and the reunited Bad Boy crew, Kendrick Lamar, Alicia Keys, The Weeknd, Janelle Monae, Rihanna, and more dazzled the crowd.

While the night may have belonged to Janet Jackson, Sunday night's Bet Awards proved memorable for so many reasons. From Sean "Diddy" Combs' epic Bad Boy reunion (not to mention his pretty nasty on-stage tumble) to Rihanna duct taping Floyd Mayweather's mouth shut and show-stopping performances from Big Sean, The Weeknd and Alicia Keys, the hip-hop industry didn't fail to turn up from the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles. Famous presenters Laverne Cox, Zendaya, Michael B. Jordan, Kelly Rowland and more were also on-hand to honor some of the biggest names in music. If you missed the three-hour plus spectacle, you're in luck! Check out the complete list of winners »
Diddy may have brought the house down with his Bad Boy reunion, but the real star of the 2015 Bet Awards was Nicki Minaj's mom, Carol. She is having the time of her life at the show and people love her. First, she slayed on the red carpet with her daughter with a matching skin-tight black ensemble that had a thigh-high slit. She looked incredible, and we finally got to see how much Nicki looked just liked her mom. Then, when Nicki won the award for Best Female Hip-Hop artist for the sixth year in a row, she didn't bring her boy Meek up with her to accept the trophy. Nope, she brought her mom and she gave the sweetest shout-out to Carol. "This is my mommy and it's the first time the world is »

In The Karate Kid, it's Mr Miyagi. In Back To The Future, it's Doc Brown. In X-Men, it's Professor Xavier. The mentor is a familiar archetype in the movies, and it's a device which is as old as storytelling itself.
The mentor is commonly characterised as a wise, usually much older being who provides wisdom and useful objects to a story's hero or heroine. The Star Wars movies have introduced numerous mentor figures in the entries released so far: dignified old Jedi knight Obi-Wan Kenobi, the benevolent Yoda and Qui-Gon Jinn, the mentor for a young Obi-Wan in The Phantom Menace.
In each instance, we see the mentor provide their students with teaching and gifts »
Joe Carnahan, writer and director for action flicks like The Grey and The A-Team, has been reportedly approached by Sony to take over their Bad Boy franchise. According to reports Carnahan could be taking a look at a previous draft of the script from Safe House writer David Guggenheim and reworking it. Carnahan may also direct this third film. The same report over at Deadline suggests that Sony wants to get moving on this and sign up Carnahan so they have a film ready for Will Smith to consider once he is done with Suicide Squad. Martin Lawrence is unofficially waiting at home by phone for something, anything, to happen. Personally, I love the Bad Boy flicks. Ask me some time about the time I went to...

'About a Boy,' with Hugh Grant and Baby 'About a Boy' movie review: Some men should remain islands On the surface, Chris and Paul Weitz's 2002 movie About a Boy has a profound, affecting premise. No man is an island entire of itself; every man is a piece of the continent, a part of the main; if a clod be washed away by the sea, Europe is the less, as well as if a promontory were, as well as any manner of thy friends or of thine own were; any man's death diminishes me, because I am involved in mankind. And therefore never send to know for whom the bell tolls; it tolls for thee. With the above statement, seventeenth-century English poet John Donne reached beyond the apparent isolation of each individual by affirming the invisible oneness that encompasses all of humankind – and, why not, all living creatures. »

I’m a dick.
Or more to the point, a lot of people think I’m a dick.
Most times I’m of a mind to simply dismiss those clearly inferior beings, loudly and with purpose. Not so many years ago, nothing made me happier than to double down when those who opposed me dared call my conduct uncouth or outrageous and labeled me among other things, a dick.
I didn’t start off with the intention of being a dick. I didn’t even start off trying to be in comics Oh, my greatest wish growing up in the hood was to be a comics artist.
Technically, my greatest wish was to stay alive but being a comic artist was Right behind that. Well, technically it was right behind not getting hooked on drugs or getting a girl pregnant, oh and avoiding being shot.
