Keshia Chanté‎, Reginae Carter, and Bow Wow

Reginae Carter is stuntin’ like her daddy. After grabbing the mic at the BET Awards, the spunky 15-year-old daughter of Lil Wayne and Toya Wright stopped by BET’s “106 & Park” on Thursday to premiere her video for “Mind Goin’ Crazy.”

The author, singer, rapper, and businesswoman spoke about getting her driver’s permit and whether her dad is going to buy them twin Ferraris. But Reginae said she doesn’t want a Ferrari for her first car (She prefers a Range Rover Sport or a Jeep).

She will celebrate her 16th birthday in November, and is pulling out all the stops. “Reginae loves to go big,” she said. “I want to have the best sweet 16 ever. My sweet 16 is gonna be dope.”

The mogul-in-the-making is also getting ready to embark on the “Young and Ready” tour and is the new spokesperson for the Boys & Girls Club. In between building her empire, she is in the studio working on an EP for release later this year.

K. Michelle

K. Michelle returned to VH1 last night in “K. Michelle: Rebellious Soul – The Musical.” The “Love & Hip Hop” star shared her emotional story in the Idris Elba-directed hip-hopera set to the soundtrack of her debut album Rebellious Soul.

Divided into three acts, the dark theatrical presentation captured the lust, love, heartache, and redemption of a woman struggling to break the cycle of bad romance, with a dramatic ending you wouldn’t expect.

“I wanted to turn my album into a story,” K told Rap-Up TV. “Each of my songs tell a story about something I’ve had to go through and something I’ve done. So I said, why not take this and turn this album into a piece and turn these songs into a conversation and make you better understand a lot of my thought process behind the records.”

Watch the drama unfold on screen.

Jennifer Hudson Performs on ‘Today’

Jennifer Hudson

New York City woke up to the soulful sounds of Jennifer Hudson. Showing off her toned tummy in a “Strong” T-shirt, the powerhouse diva took over Rockefeller Plaza on Tuesday for the “Today” concert series, and belted out “It’s Your World,” “And I Am Telling You I’m Not Going,” and her brand new song “Dangerous” off her upcoming album JHUD, due September 23.

“With this album, I feel as though you get a sense of my energy and that’s why we named it JHUD because you’re getting to know the girl and not just the public persona of Jennifer Hudson,” she said. “I want you to know the person.”

She worked with Timbaland and Pharrell on her third LP, which is a departure from her usual big ballads. “That’s all a part of artistry, is reinventing yourself,” she explained. “I don’t believe in being boxed in, or limits.”

In addition to her career, the Oscar and Grammy winner is busy being a mother to her five-year-old son David, who starts kindergarten this week. “I feel like I just had him!” she said.

Watch JHUD shut down the Plaza with her powerful pipes.
