Jaden Smith

Hollywood rolled out the red carpet at the Divergent premiere on Tuesday. The film’s stars including Zoë Kravitz and Kate Winslet were in attendance, but it was Jaden Smith who stole the show with his hilarious facial expressions.

Wearing a tie-dye bucket hat, oversized Puma sweater, and skinny jeans, the self-proclaimed Misfit posed for a series of silly pics for photographers.

The 15-year-old rapper-actor, who is working on the follow-up to his 2012 mixtape The Cool Cafe, recently took to Twitter to praise Kid Cudi’s album’s Satellite Flight: The Journey to Mother Moon.

“Kid Cudi’s New Album Is Next Level. I’m Starting To Have Hope For Modern Music Again,” tweeted Jaden.

A$AP Rocky, who is back in the lab working on his sophomore album, hit the carpet in all black. The Harlem rapper collaborated with French DJ Gesaffelstein on “In Distress” for the Divergent soundtrack.

Another one of the soundtrack’s contributors, Pia Mia, turned heads with her bold look. The 17-year-old singer, who recently signed a deal with Interscope Records, matched her blue pantsuit to her blue contacts, completing her look with red heels and her signature red bandana.

Diddy brought the stars and the fur to Harlem over the weekend. Clad in a mink, the hip-hop mogul took over famed food stand O’Fishole Seafood and Jumbo Hamburgers (formerly Willie’s Burgers) with some of his famous friends on Sunday night.

A$AP Rocky, Nelly, Jermaine Dupri, Bow Wow, Ashanti, Meek Mill, Jadakiss, and Rick Ross draped themselves in furs while shooting a mysterious video.

Diddy wouldn’t reveal exactly what it was, but did tweet, “Everybody gettin down with this #MMM movement.”

A generous Puff even presented Meek with the black mink off his back. “@iamdiddy gave me his mink he said it matched my car I could have it,” said the MMG rapper.

Diddy’s main chick Cassie also joined her man, posing in front of a Maybach. “#Mitch #MMM #newyorknewyork,” tweeted Cassie.

On Saturday, 2 Chainz and Lil Durk dug into their closets and joined Diddy to shoot additional scenes.

Drake and A$AP Rocky Shoot ‘Wu-Tang Forever’ Remix Video

Drake

Fresh from hosting “Drake Night” at the Toronto Raptors game, Drake hopped a plane to Harlem to shoot a video for the remix to “Wu-Tang Forever” featuring A$AP Rocky. Noisey snuck onto the set on Sunday night and shared their experience along with some camera phone pics.

Here’s what we know: The clip was directed by A$AP Rocky (per Jessy Terrero) and shot on the rooftop of an apartment building. Both rappers performed in front of an egg white grand piano. Wearing a black hoodie and Timbs, Drake sipped hot chocolate between takes, while A$AP poured out a brown-bagged 40 in the final scene.

Members of the Wu-Tang Clan were rumored to make a cameo in the video, but weren’t spotted on set. The original song, which only features Drake, appears on his Grammy-nominated album Nothing Was the Same.

Drake will appear on “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon” on Thursday ahead of his hosting gig on “SNL” this weekend.

A$AP Rocky Takes Over Times Square in DKNY Campaign

A$AP Rocky

A$AP Rocky is getting jiggy for DKNY. The “Fashion Killa” stars in the designer’s spring/summer 2014 campaign alongside models Cara Delevingne, Jourdan Dunn, Eliza Cummings, and Dylan Rieder.

Sporting a crisp white suit, the Harlem rapper stands on top of a yellow taxi cab in New York’s Times Square and rocks a royal blue blazer with shorts in another one of the ads, which were shot in October.

A$AP speaks about his style in the latest issue of Teen Vogue. “Every day I get dressed based upon mood, how I’m feeling,” he explains. “If I want to be cozy, I might wear cashmere sweats. If I want to stand out, I might wear something like a biker jacket or a lot of jewelry. If I want to dress down and not be noticed, I wear hoodies.”

He is working on his sophomore album, but first he and the A$AP Mob will drop their EP L.O.R.D. on March 4.

“The ’90s was the best era for hip-hop, hands down. That’s what we’re just trying to bring back,” said Rocky of the project’s direction.

Check out more photos from his DKNY and Teen Vogue shoots below.
