Celebrities are doing their part to give back to the community this holiday season. Chris Brown hosted a toy drive in L.A., Rick Ross passed out toys and sneakers at his MMG giveaway in Miami, and Big Sean spread some holiday cheer at Detroit’s Children’s Hospital.
On Sunday, Future made Christmas a little brighter for some underprivileged children during his Astronaut Kids Holiday Charity Event at Bessie Branham Park in his hometown of Atlanta. The Freebandz rapper, along with his fiancée Ciara and Super Bowl champion Tyrone Poole, donated coats and gifts, and took photos with the kids and their families.
The charity event, which was attended by hundreds, also featured games, food, and music.
“Giving back to the community.Merry Christmas #freebandzcharity,” tweeted Future, who hosts Mike WiLL Made It’s new mixtape #MikeWiLLBeenTriLL.
See them put a smile on some young people’s faces.
Ciara is bringing her “Body Party” to the pages of GQ. Future’s fiancée flaunts her smoking-hot body in a series of provocative photos for the men’s magazine. In the black-and-white images shot by Gomillion & Leupold, the 28-year-old singer sports a fishnet top with nothing underneath, clenching her breasts with her hands. She shows off her glistening legs and exposes some boob in a white crop top and cutoff denim shorts.
In the interview, CiCi chats about her new single “Overdose” and offers some dancing and style tips to the fellas.
On “Overdose”: “The song’s got a throwback ’80s vibe with a modern twist; I think that’s unexpected. It’s more a product of my experimentation—it has a vintage-y feel, but I feel like everyone can love it.”
On dancing: “Go with the flow; don’t overthink it. If you’re a head-nod kind of guy, nod your head. If you’re a guy who likes to coast out and rock or sway, just do that. Whatever you do, don’t get out there and try do something you haven’t practiced. Do what shows your style and vibe—let me catch that without you trying to show me anything.”
On her style advice for guys: “I love when people have their own creative vision, when a person stands out and tries different things. I also think less is more. A T-shirt and some Balmain jeans or even just simple jeans can still look nice—it can be powerful, too.”
Future was surrounded by loves ones as he celebrated his 30th birthday on Wednesday. In between tour stops, the “Honest” rapper sat down to a surprise dinner at Mr. Chow in Beverly Hills. His fiancée Ciara toasted her man with a glass of champagne and penned a heartfelt note on Instagram.
“Seriously, I Can’t Even Put In Words How Much I Love You,” said CiCi. “Since The Day I Met You, Everyday As Been Full Of Light, Insurmountable Happiness, And Pure Love. Youre My Bestest Friend, My RockStar, My Partner, My Fiancé, My Love… My Er’Thang:) Happy Birthday @future!! Love You.”
Future was overwhelmed by all the love. “Best bday ever.#honest,” he wrote.
Ciara even dressed up her dogs Tyson and Georgia for the occasion. “Happy Birthday @future!! Rocking Our BDay Tee’s. Partys At Our House!!:) The Woof The Woof The Woof Is On Fire!!” she tweeted.
Future proposed to Ciara with a 15-carat diamond engagement ring during her 28th birthday celebration. The couple has set a wedding date. “We know the date we want to do now and I’m excited,” she told E! Online.
After rubbing shoulders with fashion’s elite at the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund gala earlier in the week, Ciara mingled with models at the “2013 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show” taping in New York on Wednesday.
The “Body Party” singer ripped the pink carpet in a dark blue Prabal Gurung dress and Giuseppe Zanotti heels, with her latest accessory, the 15-carat diamond engagement ring given to her by Future.
After getting engaged on her 28th birthday, she revealed that she and her fiancé have set a wedding date. “I’m very very excited! [Just] like every girl…we think about making that dress and that moment, and being with your bridesmaids,” the bride-to-be told E! News. “I just can’t wait to do everything, I’m like a little kid right now.”
She snapped an Instagram photo with her BFF La La Anthony. “Me and My Best Friend @Lala Having Perfect Fun. In the end it’s all about being with the people you LOVE,” tweeted CiCi.
Taylor Swift, Fall Out Boy, and A Great Big World rocked the stage alongside Victoria’s Secret Angels Adriana Lima, Alessandra Ambrosio, Doutzen Kroes, and Behati Prinsloo.
Ciara was on hand to announce the nominees for the 2014 People’s Choice Awards in Beverly Hills on Tuesday. During the press conference, the “Overdose” singer showed off her 15-carat diamond engagement ring from Future and her long legs in a black Anthony Vaccarello dress.
At one point, it appeared that she was about to have a wardrobe malfunction, but she saved herself from any embarrassment.
“This Has Truly Been An Amazing Year!!” tweeted CiCi, who was nominated for Favorite R&B Artist along with Alicia Keys, Justin Timberlake, Rihanna, and Robin Thicke.
In the Favorite Hip-Hop Artist category, the nominees include Drake, Jay Z, Kanye West, Lil Wayne, and Macklemore & Ryan Lewis.
The 40th Annual People’s Choice Awards air live on CBS on Jan. 8 at 9 p.m. ET.
Future was just being honest during his appearance on “106 & Park.” Fresh off his engagement to Ciara, the Atlanta rapper spoke about his fiancée, who he proposed to with a 15-carat diamond ring.
When asked when he knew the “Body Party” singer was the one, he responded, “Pretty much day one.”
He recalled the first time he saw her on set of a video shoot. “Seven years ago, me and my brother [Rocko], we was riding in a car and we was passing her,” he said. “He was like, you want me to introduce you to her? I was like, it mean more to me for the sake of time for me to see her again.”
Future is currently on tour with Drake. While they reportedly had a showdown, he brushed off rumors of a rift. “Them all rumors. I’m on the tour so make sure you come out and support us on tour.”
He also hit the stage to perform his single “Honest.” On Nov. 10, he will debut the video for “Real and True” co-starring Miley Cyrus and Mr Hudson.
