Was that John Legend in a white tank top and away from his piano stool at the NBA All-Star game? The recent Grammy winner chose Sunday’s halftime show to unveil his new scantily-clad stage persona that he plans to display during live performances from now on. “Now I’ll take my top shirt off and have a tank top on at the show, so I’m definitely playing the sex angle up a little bit,” Legend told The Associated Press.

LL Cool J Is Not In Love With Strippers

Rapper LL Cool J is urging his peers to stop degrading women in their music videos, because he fears they are setting a bad example to the younger generation. The rap star, whose latest video Control Myself features a scantily-clad Jennifer Lopez, insists women can look sexy and classy in bikinis – but shouldn’t be portrayed as prostitutes and strippers.

He says, “I think that there’s more room in the videos for women to be portrayed in a better way, like, classy. I don’t mean that they can’t be beautiful, can’t wear swimsuits, can’t wear bikinis. “I don’t think that every woman has to be a stripper in every video. “When you have three daughters and you’re sitting there watching the video channel and every girl that’s on there is like a stripper…. I don’t think that we have to tell them that this is all there is for you to do in order for you to make it.” (source)

Michelle Williams To Play HIV-Positive Record Executive

Michelle Williams To Play HIV-Positive Record Executive

For her first appearance on a sitcom, Destiny’s Child singer Michelle Williams didn’t exactly choose the easiest role.

Williams, who begins a three-episode HIV storyline on UPN’s “Half & Half” Monday, will be balancing silly and serious in playing Naomi Dawson, a record executive who, viewers will eventually discover, is HIV-positive. Despite the tricky balance she had to strike, Williams came away from the experience hungry for more. “It was so much fun. I love it when work is fun,” says Williams, whose acting experience also includes “Aida” on Broadway. “I fell in love doing TV. So I want to do some more sitcoms – hopefully some more `Half & Half.’”

Viewers may not immediately fall in love with Williams’ character on “Half & Half” – she’s a professional rival of Mona (Rachel True), and their interaction is prickly at best. Yet Mona’s co-worker and friend Spencer (Chico Benymon) sees something in her, and they end up spending a low-key Valentine’s Day together. After working together on a special project, Naomi and Spencer find themselves spending extra time together and getting very comfortable with one another. As the couple grows closer, Naomi unexpectedly begins to back away from the relationship. However, after getting a not-so-subtle push from Mona (Rachel True), who does not approve of the coupling, Naomi reveals to Spencer that she is HIV positive.

The three-episode arc airs in consecutive weeks beginning Monday, February 13 (9:30-10:00 pm, et/pt) on UPN. Thanks Leila for the information and pictures!
