Kanye West and Kim Kardashian stepped out to Paris Fashion Week, but it was their daughter North West who stole the spotlight. The 16-month-old was the center of attention while attending her first fashion show at the Balenciaga spring/summer 2015 presentation.

André 3000 Steps Out at ‘Jimi: All Is By My Side’ Premiere

André 3000

André 3000 aka André Benjamin made a rare appearance at the premiere of the Jimi Hendrix biopic Jimi: All Is By My Side in Hollywood last night. Donning denim with an orange beanie and white sunglasses, the reclusive rapper spoke to reporters on the red carpet and posed with director John Ridley and Aerosmith frontman Steven Tyler.

Benjamin plays the iconic rock guitarist in the film, which follows Hendrix in the years prior to his fame. “I learned his humility, I learned his cockiness, I learned his shyness, I learned the other side of everything I did not know before we did the film,” he told Hollywood Today.

While there are currently no plans for another OutKast album, he did toy with the idea of an OutKast biopic.

“It would be great to make an OutKast movie right now, but instead of really serious, make it a full comedy—like Kevin Hart would play Big Boi,” he said. As for who would play him? “We should cast somebody stupid—like Leonardo [DiCaprio].”

A solo album may or may not be in the future, but in the meantime he has produced for Aretha Franklin’s upcoming covers album.

Jimi: All Is By My Side hits theaters on September 26.

BET Hip-Hop Awards 2014: T.I., Snoop Dogg, Brandy, Keyshia Cole, Young Thug, & YG

MC Lyte, Brandy, Queen Latifah, and Yo-Yo

There were laughs and tears at the BET Hip-Hop Awards 2014 on Saturday. Hosted by Snoop Dogg, the ninth annual show returned to the Boisfeuillet Jones Atlanta Civic Center in Atlanta to honor the best in hip-hop, with performances from some of the year’s biggest stars.

Uncle Snoop showed off his comedic chops in several skits throughout the evening. He brought his GGN network to life on stage, interviewing French Montana and “Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta” star Mimi Faust.

In honor of the song’s 20-year anniversary, Brandy reunited with Queen Latifah, MC Lyte, and Yo-Yo to perform the hip-hop remix to her debut single “I Wanna Be Down.”

The most powerful moment of the evening came when Common, Jay Electronica, and Vince Staples stood on stage with the parents of Mike Brown. There was a moment of silence and the crowd put their hands in the air in remembrance of the unarmed black teen who was killed by a white police officer in Ferguson.

With tears in his eyes, Doug E. Fresh acknowledged his late mother while accepting the “I Am Hip-Hop Award.”

“I want to thank this woman and hip-hop. If it wasn’t for hip-hop, I don’t know where I would be,” said an emotional Fresh, who also performed “La Di Da Di” with Snoop.

T.I. took the stage with Young Thug for “About the Money,” Rae Sremmurd performed their summer anthem “No Flex Zone,” and Migos knocked it out with “Fight Night.”

A day after being arrested for allegedly assaulting a woman in Birdman’s condo, Keyshia Cole presented Producer of the Year to DJ Mustard. Her rumored boyfriend Birdman was also in the house, performing “Lifestyle” with Rich Homie Quan and Young Thug.

Drake received the most nominations with eight, followed by Jay Z, Pharrell, and Future with six apiece.

The BET Hip-Hop Awards 2014, along with the pre-recorded cyphers, will air October 14 at 8 p.m. EST.
