Tamar Braxton dropped her “Love and War” album only a few months ago and already she has been bringing in the awards.

A few weeks ago, we told you all about her being nominated for 5 Soul Train music awards, well SHE DID THAT because she took three of them home.

The “All The Way Home” singer’s hard work paid off tremendously because she walked away with the Best R&B/Soul Female Artist, Song of the Year for “Love and War” and the Ashford & Simpson Songwriter’s Award. She also preformed three of her hit singles during the show.

Congrats to her!

The Soul Train Music Awards was recorded in Vegas on November 8th and will air some time in December on Centric TV.

Miley Cyrus Honors 2Pac and Biggie At MTV Awards


Miley Cyrus has been shocking us all with some of her twerking and wild behavior, but we have to realize that she’s all grown up now.

The 20-year-old singer hit the red carpet at the MTV awards wearing a custom dress with late rappers 2Pac and Biggie on it. On the front of the dress, it read “violence” and the back of the dress says “please stop.” She paired her dress with a pair of checkboard thigh high boots.

What do you think of her oufit?

On the Scene: Sheer Perfection! Ashanti Shows off the Details of Her Awards Gown

Yesterday we highlighted some of our favorite looks from the 2013 Soul Train awards and many of you agreed that Ashanti was slaying the red carpet in this sheer-piece. Well now we have a back-view of the gown and let’s just say we are totally floored.  The singer recently shared a photo of herself backstage at the awards show, which was held in Vegas this year, and gave us a backside view of her black and silver embellished ensemble. The media personality and actress finished the look with her new haircut, natural makeup, and a nude pair of pumps. Nice!

Star Studded! Ashanti, Faith Evans, Tristan Wilds and MORE at Soul Train Awards [MORE PICS]

The stars were aligned and shining last night at the 2013 Soul Train Awards held in Vegas. The evening was full of the “whose-who” of then-and-now entertainers as music artists and actors alike showed up in dazzling gowns, tuxedos and assorted evening wear. “Sheer” seemed to be the theme of the night for many ladies such as singer Ashanti, Bridget Kelly and Toni Braxton as they fluttered down the carpet in translucent threads that left heads turning. Faith Evans definitely made forty the new twenty in an embellished bodycon dress that not even someone half her age could pull off as effortlessly as her. You go, diva!

Fine-as-wine singer Jon B. showed up in his semi-formal get-up (does that man ever age?) and was spotted on the scene along the likes of Tyrese, singer Tank and actor-rapper Tristan Wilds.

Peep more photos below as we put together a few more of our favorite looks from the evening. BET Awards could definitely take notes on what type of dress code to “enforce” or perhaps, encourage, their celebrity guests to adhere to next year. Attendees definitely looked radiant in their outfits!

DO GOODERS: Jennifer Hudson, J.Cole, The “Hit The Floor” Cast & More Do The VH1 ‘DO SOMETHING’ AWARDS

 photo dos9_zps457180e4.jpg

??Last night, a few of our faves hit up the 2013 Do Something Awards at Avalon in Hollywood.  These awards are all about recognizing those who are doing something to make a difference.  Check out the cast from our new fave show "Hit The Floor" on their hosting duties, plus Jennifer Hudson, J.Cole and more all making appearances.

Before they took the stage to rock out for the VH1 ‘Do Something’ crowd, J-Hud and J.Cole hit the green carpet:

 photo dos8_zpsade5ee40.jpg

Jenny looked great in her animal print blouse, chain and shorts by Versace.  Not sure if those are stockings with these white shoes (y’all know how we feel about white pumps and white shoes)…but other than those things, we think she’s keeping up her fabness these days.

 photo mos17_zpsf1355ab6.jpg 

Jenny also took home an award for the work she’s done for the Julian D. King Foundation she founded in Chicago in honor of her slain nephew.  She became understandably emotional as she talked about providing much-needed supplies to school children from low-income families.

"I wasn’t going to cry, but I’m a cry baby so I can’t help it," Jenny said on the awards stage. "It just shows how much it warms my heart to see so many blessed and from our blessings in honor of my nephew…It’s one thing to be a celebrity, but it means nothing if you can’t help somebody."

J.Cole‘s still riding the success of his newest album Born Sinner.
