We're still in shock over the havoc the tornado has reeked in Oklahoma!
With the death toll at 24 and climbing, there is NO question the tornado that struck Oklahoma City suburbs — like Moore, Oklahoma — at more than 200mph was one of the most brutal tornados in history, but NOW we have footage of just how destructive the powerful natural killer was.
See the jaw-dropping videos of the lethal natural disaster and the painful aftermath...AFTER THE JUMP!!!

However, the two are in no rush to push those divorce papers through!
Some have speculated that it’s because it doesn’t really matter at this point, since neither of them have money problems or want to get anything out of each other.
Others think it might be because the two have rekindled a flame!!

Also, video games!!! How could we forget video games?!
Thankfully, Microsoft hasn't!
They unveiled the fabulously fresh Xbox One today and it truly looks to be the future of gaming!
It's been one-four score and three years ago since our forefathers minds were blown and balls were fondled by 2005's Xbox 360, but we've totally been salivating for more!
The forthcoming XBox One has a fresh design (above), a built-in Blu-ray player, and 8GB of RAM and an 8-core CPU -- both of which should allow more graphically intense games!
Even more exciting is Microsoft's new content in development!
They teamed up with Steven Spielberg to produce a Halo-themed TV show!
Woot! Woot! It's like our inner-nerd just popped six Viagra at once, because it's raging boner of happiness just wont quit!
Microsoft plans to release XBox One later this year and we can't wait to get our hands on one!!

Emma Roberts and Evan Peters are still going strong!
While the fashion isn't really Evan's scene, it looks like the twosome are trying to fit in as MUCH quality time together as possible before he takes off to New Orleans to shoot the next spooktacular season of American Horror Story in July!
Don't worry Emma! We're sure he'll invite you to visit, even if he IS busy playing another serial killer (as much as we loved him in season 2, his season 1 character was so epic crazy)!

We had a feeling her snub wouldn't hurt this ol' sport that much!
Check out the cheek snuggle (above)!!!
Cara might only enjoy his company as a party friend, but there's still plenty of non-frozen fish in Leo's sea.
We wouldn't be surprised if he's marinated a few of 'em with his love sauce already! Ha!!

Awwww, haaay you cute young thangs!
Just witness the LOVE they displayed in Verona, Italy on Sunday (above)!
Zayn even waved to waiting fans (promptly causing mass swoonage, ha!)
It seems Zayn decided to get rid of that delightful "Little Mix" manicure that Perrie so kindly gave him (while he was sleeping) LOLz!

Jon Bon Jovi is definitely NOT a Belieber!!
Well, it seems Jon Bon Jovi finds it hard to focus on Justin's "craft" when he's disappointing fans the world over!
The Livin’ on a Prayer belter slammed:
"Every generation had guys that do that, none of that is new.
They run the risk of disrespecting their audience members who have worked hard to pay for their ticket, to give you the permission to take two or three hours of their lives – or in that kid’s case, 80 minutes of their lives.
Do it once, you can be forgiven. Do it enough times and shame on you. They won’t have you back. Then it becomes a cliché. It’s really not cool- you’re an asshole. Go to f***in’ work!"
Please, JBJ... tell us how you REALLY feel, LOLz!
But we can't say we really disagree!

Demi Moore has got one hell of a
trainer bod!! The actress and mother of three spent some time with friends in the warm Malibu sun at her ex-boyfriend Harry Morton’s home!
Wearing a tiny bikini top and black pants, Demi showed off her flat stomach. All those yoga classes must be keeping her in AH-mazing shape!
It was reported last week that Harry and Demi were no longer an item. Are they really just friends or is something stirring once again?!
Ch-ch-check out closer shots (below)!!
Our only hope is that we look THIS good in a few years!

|"In a gripping testimonial, an ailing former member of the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) has talked via video for the first time publicly about his experience dealing with extraterrestrials, their craft and a cover-up. The 15 minute prerecorded video of an anonymous former senior CIA officer was broadcast May 3 on the final day of the week long Citizen Hearing on Disclosure. The 77-year-old man, though he was articulate, and sitting up as he spoke, was obviously in a poor state of health. He worked for the CIA under President Dwight Eisenhower in 1958 and had chosen to break his long-held silence as he approached the end of his life." - riaalterego|

Plaza Towers Elementary School in Moore was flattened after it took a direct hit from the mile-wide twister. The strength of the storm tore off the roof of the school and knocked down walls. Several students were found alive in the rubble and passed down a human chain of rescue workers to a triage centre in the car park. Photographer Sue Ogrocki described how police and firefighters had used bars to try to lift up a large chunk of a wall as they pulled children out one-by-one from underneath.

The King of The South, T.I., arrived wearing a black t-shirt and camoflauge pants. We're sure folks didn't mind that he opted out of the white dress code. He's the King. He can do as he pleases.
"LAHH ATL" husband Kirk Frost was there.
And "RHOA" starlet Porsha Williams also stepped out for the function. Hmm...It sees like Porsha smiles a lot more since Kordell walked out of her life.
Draya 's "BBW LA" co-star Bambi seems to attend a lot of ATL events. It's only a matter of time before she winds up on one of ATL's many reality shows.
Producer Jazze Pha posed with members of his team.

The-Dream's new song ft. his homie Beyonce and 2 Chainz, "Turnt" just hit the net. Decide if we love it inside...
After her own "Grown Woman" leak last night (Dream co-write that too), Beyonce has popped up on Terius' newest leaked track "Turnt" with rapper 2 Chainz. Off his upcoming IV Play album (MAY 28th), the track opens with Bey's vocals singing about undressing under candlelight and doing all the things that special someone likes.
Dream cruises over the track with a verse of his own, joins Bey in the background and on the chorus, there's a few shout outs to Kelly & Michelle, and 2 Chainz comes in at the end.
Check it below:
Chicago rapper Chief Keef took his bad behavior down south and ended up behind bars in Atlanta yesterday. Find out what he got busted for inside...
Despite being 17-years-old, rapper Chief Keef has amassed a long list of fans and an extensive rap sheet to match. Earlier in the year, the rapper was was busted for violating parole (he loves guns) and he's also been to court a few times behind child-support support drama.
As if that wasn't enough to rap about, Chief Keef aka Keith Cozart was locked up in Atlanta yesterday for disorderly conduct (which was later revealed to be marijuana related), according to TMZ. Peep that mugshot where dude is CLEARLY high as usual.
Now with another arrest under his belt, he tweeted,
YOU'RE MAD? We can imagine how mad your daughter will be when she grows up witout a dad around purely because of your own choices. Just sayin'...
In case you missed it:
Chief Keef is featured on the latest video from Capo called "Hate Me". Directed by Azae Production, the two rappers wear white tees, smoke marijuana and drink Purple Drank out of Dunkin Donuts coffee cups. Throughout most of the video, the two look dazed and distant. It will be interesting to see how Chief's parole officer responds to this video. We imagine it must "violate" something....
*UPDATE* TMZ reports that Chief Keef was busted for smoking marijuana at a hotel in Atlanta.
Oh, hello hotness. When the boys are away, the gals will play. Check out Think Like A Man 2 stars LaLa Anthony, Gabby Union, Meagan Good, Taraji P. Henson and their hot bikini bods working hard but playing harder in Vegas after filming....

42-year-old Taraji and 40-year-old Gabby were putting youngins to shame in their cute bikinis. And LaLa and Meagan kept it just as cute. And they snapped some pics to make us blush:
The girls also posted pics in the studio doing their voiceovers of their lines where co-stars Regina Hall and Wendy McLendon-Covey joined:

Last night, The-Dream performed his latest single, "Where Have You Been" with Kelly Rowland on "The Tonight Show". Watch the performance inside and see Will Smith's impromptu performance of "Summertime" on "The Late Show."
Singer Kelly Rowland, who'll be joining the esteemed panel of judges on "The X Factor", graced the stage on "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno" with singer The-Dream. The duo performed his latest single, "Where Have You Been" off of his IV Play disc, which hits stores May 28.
Following the appearance, The-Dream took to Twitter to thank his glamourous duet partner,
"K.Row..... Thank You from Me and the Lovecult for being here for me Today! Jay Leno... I appreciate it soooo much. I LOVE you!"
You can catch the duo live when their joint tour kicks off May 23rd. Also, The-Dream penned Kelly's latest single, "Dirty Laundry" which signals the beginning of a beautiful musical partnership.
Watch the performance here:
Also on late night television...
Will Smith, in a shiny blue silk suit and burgundy button down that only he could pull off, appeared on "The Late Show with David Letterman".
Will, who displayed his movie star bod to the throngs of fans screaming his name, appeared on the chat fest to promote After Earth, the film he stars in with son Jaden (hitting movie houses June 7th).
Before he sat down with David, Will was hyped up by the band playing his hit as his intro music, so he grabbed the mic and spit "Summertime". Ugh, love him.
And during a recent interview with Hip Hollywood, Will revealed that his friend Kanye West (whom he vacationed with earlier this year) has been incouraging him to get back in the studio. "I might get the bug, I'm not gonna do it unless I'm truly inspired."
Watch Will's impromptu performance of "Summertime" here:

Feast your ears on the dance-heavy track, complete with a Latin featurette below.
Does she run this?

How cute! Beyonce just uploaded a pic of her baby girl Blue Ivy Carter in her own Mrs. Carter Show tour director's chair. Check the cuteness inside, plus more presonal pics of the Carters in Cuba, plus Auntie Solange rocking the pages of the June 2013 issue of InSTYLE magazine...
Right before the start of the Mrs. Carter Show World Tour, Beyonce posted a pic of her daughter in her official mini-me B.I.C. chair. Now she's uploaded a pic of B.I.C. in cute ponytails and a tutu skirt taking her place backstage recently.
Bey, who's still embroiled in a pregnancy controversy about IS SHE or IS SHE NOT expecting again, was spotted arriving into the south of France with her hubby Jay, sis Solange and Solo's boyfriend Alan today. But it didn't stop Mrs. C. from uploading more personal Cubano trip pics from last month to her Tumblr:
And Solange has been killing the fashion shoot game recently. From her insanely hot recent COMPLEX magazine spread to now, her own spread in June 2013 issue of InSTYLE magazine, she's indeed becoming THE go-to fashionista in the game.
She's rocking her fave designers like Marni, Miu Miu, Peter Pilotto and Chloe in the spread. Check it:
This is so her. Mixing prints, shift dresses, bold colors and a vintage yet sexy vibe. Loves it.

After a very nasty divorce a few years ago, actress LisaRaye McCoy has apparently landed a man of the cloth in Bishop Noel Jones. Get the deets on them courtship inside....
"Single Ladies" star LisaRaye McCoy, who rose to fame as a stripper named Diamond in "The Player's Club", has landed herself a pastor! According to AlwaysAList.com, LisaRaye is dating Bishop Noel Jones.
Oh, but there's more.
Though you'd have a hard time coming across "sightings" of the couple (they're keeping the relationship under tight wraps), it's been revealed that the couple's relationship is one of the storylines of the upcoming Oxygen reality series "Pastors of LA".
A synopis of the show, produced by L. Plummer Media in association with Relevé Entertainment, reads:
"Pastors of L.A.’ will give viewers a candid and revealing look at six boldly different and world renowned mega-pastors in Southern California, who are willing to share diverse aspects of their lives, from their work in the community and with their parishioners to the very large and sometimes provocative lives they lead away from the pulpit.”
Do we REALLY need this reality show? Really?
A source who saw the pilot described an interesting scene between the couple where Noel took issue with some of LisaRaye's attire. “He basically told her that he wasn’t sure she was ‘Godly enough’ for his world, and she in turn told him he may not be ‘worldly enough’ for hers”.
Oh, I wonder if he means her recent bathroom bikini pics from last week (above)...or any of her backshots from KING, Black Men, the list goes on...
The show will also star other Los Angeles-based pastors including Bishop Clarence McClendon, Pastor Wayne Chaney, Bishop Ron Gibson, Pastor Jay Haizlip, and gospel singer Deitrick Haddon.
For those unfamiliar with Noel Jones, he's the brother of the iconic Grace Jones. And that got us wondering, if Noel and LisaRaye ever got married...

Eve posted some pics of the big GUMBALL 3000 that kicked off this weekend overseas. And she's riding shotgun in a super expensive ride with her man Maximillion (in the middle with the Gumball tee on).
Pics inside, plus VH1's "Hit The Floor" super trailer...
After her whirlwind LipLock album promo in NYC and Philly, Eve is all about her millionaire boyfriend's GUMBALL race. She posted pics from DAY 1 this weekend.
And rappers Bun B and Xzibit are there too.
And she even performed during a kickoff concert .
She posted a pic of her and Max's car saying, "Still day 1 on #gumball3000 about to drive the #morgan on to a CRUISE SHIP! for an 8 hour boat ride to Finland #adventure."
Must be nice!
And VH1 just released the super trailer for its new scripted show "Hit the Floor". It premieres Memorial Day (Monday, May 27th at 9PM ET
/PT), but the newest super trailer has just been released.
What's this all about: "Hit The Floor" follows the alluring lives and loves of the Los Angeles Devils Girls, the premier dance team in all of professional basketball. The Los Angeles Devils are the number one team in the league. When the stadium lights go up at night all of Hollywood comes out to support the million dollar players; but in this city these men share the fame, adrenalin, money, sex and power with their dancers, the Devil Girls. At the heart of “Hit The Floor” is Ahsha (Taylour Paige), a sheltered young woman who joins the team against the wishes of her mother Sloane (Kimberly Elise), who knows this treacherous, tempting world all too well having been an original Devil’s Girl herself. Olivia (Charlotte Ross) is the shrewd squad manager, Jelena (Logan Browning) is the ruthless star captain of the dance team who won’t let anyone outshine her and Pete Davenport (Dean Cain) is the former All-Star who's come back to coach his old team only to have to contend with the girls both stealing the spotlight and distracting his players.
Well it's not "Basketball Wives". And that's a good thing. So...will you be watching?

The-Dream has team up with Kelly Rowland for "Where have You Been." Listen to the new song inside and hear Brianna Perry's "Jungle."
After penning Kelly Rowland's latest single "Dirty Laundry", he's tapped the songstress for his latest record, "Where Have You Been" off his album IV Play. He spoke about the record to Rap-Up.com saying “Just a signature R&B duet record, no games, no nothing, straight down the middle. It was a chance for me to bond with another friend now that I have, which is Kelly.”
Fans can watch the duo perform the track tonight on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno at 10:30CT. Also, Extra TV reports that Kelly Rowland and Paulina Rubio will be joining "The X Factor" a judge. An announcement will be made later today.
Listen to "Where Have You Been" here:
In other new music....
Brianna Perry kicks off Monday Mayhem with another hardcore single "Jungle". The track does not appear on her Symphony No. 9 mixtape so we suspect she's readying a full length disc and this is a preview. She gives a subliminal shoutout to Lil' Kim spitting, "You Wanna Rumble With the B..." Someone knows how to salute the vets properly...
Listen to "Jungle" here:
She's back at work today, but at yesterday's 2013 Billboard Music Awards, Rocsi Diaz fainted on the red carpet! We talked to Rocsi about exactly what went down and how she's doing now...
"ET" correspondent Rocsi Diaz was at work yesterday on the red carpet of the Billboard Awards in Vegas. And in the middle of doing a celeb interview with Miley Cyrus, chaos suddenly went down. Literally.
Rocsi fainted and was laid out on the carpet. We're told EMT was called over to the scene to help her out, and tv correspondent Shaun Robinson (seen above in gold dress) also rushed to her side.
And it seems like the petite chick simply had a lot on her plate in the humid weather during a busy day.
Rocsi exclusively tells TheYBF.com:
“I’m really thankful for everyone that dropped everything to help me yesterday. Shaun Robinson actually left her position on the carpet to run to my side, thanks for being there, girl! I also apologize for cutting Miley’s interview short, she must have been so confused, but I didn’t want to faint on her!”
Rocsi's publicist also said in a statement today:
“It was a scary, humbling and embarrassing moment and an important wake up call to take better care of myself while on the road”
We're told Rocsi was set on getting back up to finish out the interviews, and that she did. She kept screaming "I need to interview my girl J.Lo!" Too bad Jenny Lopez skipped out on all interviews. But she handled Wiz & Amber's interview before the fainting spell and also several celebs afterwards. She's a trooper.
Glad you're better Rocsi!

Usher lent a few verses of his own to a special remix of "U.O.E.N.O." Listen to the track inside and hear Wale's "Love Hate Thing" single...
The "U.O.E.N.O." song is back in the press. After a long and dark association with Rick Ross (who's been removed from the Rocko track), "The Voice" judge Usher has jumped on board the catchy beat and lent a few verses of his own to the remix. Ans did we hear him say something about another Confessions album?!
While Usher uses the track to brag about his posh lifestyle, he has a few notable achievements which didn't appear in the song. He'll soon portray Sugar Ray Leonard in the film Hands of Stone and he'll receive the ASCAP "Gold Note" Award on Thursday, June 27th during The 26th Annual ASCAP Rhythm & Soul Music Awards. About the honor, Usher said in a press release,
"I take the art of song writing and music-making very seriously, so to be given the ASCAP Golden Note Award from an organisation of my fellow music creators is a huge honour."
Listen to Usher's "U.O.E.N.O." (Remix):

Rapper Jay-Z has spoken out (sorta) about rumors of Beyonce's pregnancy...and he's denying it. Find out what he allegedly said inside and why we think the pregnancy rumors were started...
For the past few days, the world has been flushed with gossip about pop superstar Beyonce expecting her second child. The news went mainstream when E! News reported the pregnancy as the next best thing to FACT. Though E! news is considered a VERY reliable news outlets by EVERYONE, but according to Jay apparently, the news is NOT a fact.
Over the weekend, Ebro (the famed station manager of NYC's Hot 97) went on record saying that he received an email from Jay-Z denying the pregnancy. On air, he read Jay-Z's email saying, "It's not true. The news is worse than blogs." Of course, this could "potentially" have come from someone else, but because Jay-Z and Ebro have had a close relationship for over a decade...we'll take Ebro's word for it.
But here's the other issue...why would E! News report something which "might" not be true? We have our own suspicions that have been brought to our attention.
You'll recall that In Touch Weekly printed a potentially embarrassing cover story about Kanye West's sexuality a few days ago. The tabloid claimed he is in a gay relationship with Riccardo Ticsci...and we passed on posting the story since we've heard that rumor for years now with no credible confirmations. But with mainstream tabloids posting it now, this could possibly threaten that Kardashian throne (we all know the concoction of the Kardashians is E!'s biggest cash cow). So, we think it's odd that the rumor of Bey's second child came out RIGHT AFTER the In Touch article.
We've all seen how Olivia Pope mastered the art of "changing the conversation" on "Scandal". And you'll notice that we're not talking about Kanye's sexuality anymore. We might mention his SNL rant, but his relationship with Givenchy's Riccardo Tisci is old news. Why? Beyonce MIGHT BE PREGNANT!
But jeopardizing your credibility is a serious length to go to just to play Captain Save A Baby Mama.
As far as E! News goes....they have not printed a retraction and their "Beyonce's Pregnant" story is still on the front page of their website. But the story about Kanye's sexuality NEVER made the site.
“Niggas in Paris” producer/rapper Hit-Boy drops the remix video to his song “Fan” featuring 2 Chainz today on his 26th birthday. The video features plenty of eye-candy and several pieces from the 3.1 Phillip Lim Spring/Summer 2013 Collection. Check it out here.

Last week Usher visited “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno” where he talked about judging the Voice, his upcoming role in the Sugar Ray Leonard movie, Justin Bieber, and much more .
