Rapper J. Cole talked to The Breakfast Club this morning where he promoted the release of his sophmore album Born Sinner. During the interview, the rapper revealed that he had very few reservations about putting his album out the same week as Kanye West’s Yeezus disc. He also talk about writing his radio hit "Crooked Smile" featuring TLC.

"I basically had the concept for the song which is talking about my grill. It was about flipping it and getting people to embrace their flaws. So when I finally got the hook of the song, it reminded me of something TLC would sing because they had monster hits with positive songs."

Watch the interview here:

Fans of J. Cole will be able to see the "Power Trip" rapper in NYC tonight with his "Dollar & A Dream" Tour.

As they prepare for this week’s season finale, the cast of ABC’s hit show "Scandal" made some daytime TV appearances including jaunts through "GMA", "The View" and Kerry Washington appeared on "Wendy".  Watch clips from each show inside…

Earlier this morning, "Scandal" star Kerry Washington was spotted in New York’s Time Square.  Kerry was up bright and early to join the cast of her hit show on "GMA" to dish on this season’s many secrets and to promote the season finale, which airs Thursday.

Following her "GMA" appearance, Kerry switched gears and went over to the "WENDY" show where was joined by her Peeples co-star David Allan Grier to play a few games and promote their latest forray onto the big screen.

Then, the lady in red linked up with the "Scandal" cast again to appear on "The View" which was co-hosted by Judy Smith, the well-connected Washington powerhouse who inspired the "Olivia Pope" character.

Though we enjoyed seeing the cast make their rounds, actor Columbus Short was suspiciously absent…and no one bothered to explain his absence.  Hmmm….we wonder if he’s going to get killed off on soon (hope not!)….

Watch highlights from each show here…..

On "Good Morning America:

The entire cast appeared on GMA and revealed that off-camera, they’re all good friends.  They watch the show as a group on weekends so they can cheer each other on.  Nice! 

On "Wendy":

Kerry told Wendy that she doesn’t like it when people say that Olivia Pope is the President’s side piece because it objectifies women.  When asked about the relationship between the President and Olivia, Kerry reminded the audience that POTUS has offered to leave his wife for Olivia, but she told him not to. She then asked the audience if Olivia was truly the side chick,  or if she remained "on the side" simply because she was afraid to be "all in." 

Later in the segment, she was joined by her Peeples co-star David Allan Grier to promote their movie (which is in theaters now). 

On "The View":

At the (6:31) mark, Tony Goldwyn, who plays President Fitzgerald Grant, re-enacts the scene (with co-host Sherri Shepherd) where the President tells Olivia that he will leave his wife and the White House.  He tells Sherri–in that sultry ass way he does–to sit down and says, "Watch me choose you…Watch me earn you!"  Then, he kisses her.  *fans self*

 

The season finale of "Scandal" airs May 16, 10p ET.  We’re SO there.

While discussing "Blurred Lines", Robin revealed that his wife, Paula Patton, gave her thumbs up for making the sexy & slightly dirty video (because she understands the industry).  There was also a completely uncensored version too.  He added that when he comes home from a sexy video shoot, Paula is usual there waiting for him in some booty shorts or something else sexy…just to remind him of what he has at home.

And there has also been controversy about him leaving the "Real Husbands Of Hollywood".  He said he and Kevin Hart remain good friends and he’s indeed not doing Season 2 of "RHOH".  He’s finishing his sixth album and wants to focus on other entertainment ventures.  He added that he has written a short film called "Mercy" on how the healthcare industry impacts smalls towns, and he didn’t want "RHOH" to get in the way.

Miguel CHATS It Up With “The Breakfast Club” About The Gay Rumors & Frank Ocean

"Adorn" singer Miguel chatted up The Breakfast Club this morning about the gay rumors, his thoughts on Frank Ocean and his image. Watch the interview inside…..

This morning, R&B crooner Miguel stopped by Power 105.1 to promote the upcoming release of Kaleidoscope Dream (in stores today).  The crew inquored about his "odd" image, the gay rumors and shared his thoughts on R&B guys coming out the closet.  But he will not be one of them as he spent time shooting down the rumors that he is a gay man.

While talking to the hosts about his image, he revealed that he was trying to figure out who he was while still trying to be who the record company believed he should be.  

Miguel revealed, "I was trying to be myself in the midst of being someone else. I’m much more sturdy as a person [now] and I’ve just found what complements me and who I am."  

Here are the highlights:

On gay rumors:

He said first and foremost, his priority is "the music" and he had to take a step back from people scrutinizing him because he didn’t want anything to detract from that.  However, he never addressed how he specifically felt about the rumors and how they made him feel.

On Frank Ocean:

"I think he is an amazingly talented musician."  When asked about Frank "coming out," he added that the "timing" of the announcment was interesting, but as a grown man, he doesn’t care about someone else’s sexuality.  He also described himself as "an individual who celebrates inviduality". 

You can also catch Miguel performing on "The Wendy Williams Show" today.

Watch a preview inside and also check out what he and Meagan had to say about celibacy. Also, check out Oprah’s interviews of Paris Jackson and 50 Cent.

 

Oprah Winfrey recently posted a preview of her interview with Meagan Good’s fiance DeVon Franklin where he talked about his faith and how he navigates the entertainment industry.   Oprah said on her Facebook page,

"I met a young man a couple of months ago who’s faith was so strong and Light was so bright, that after less than 7 minutes with him I said we need to do a show together. An unlikely candidate to be a spiritual thought leader, (he’s a Hollywood executive) I was so moved by his passion and commitment to faith while functioning in the lion’s den of entertainment I could hardly wait to do a SUPER SOUL SUNDAY and share his insights, clarity and wisdom with you. He’s in the business of developing movies and talent, but as you will see, is a bona fide dynamo himself… a different kind of spiritual teacher for our times."

So this Sunday on an all-new "Super Soul Sunday," watch DeVon Franklin share his advice on achieving success without losing yourself. The Produced by Faith author talks with Oprah about how he balances his Hollywood life with his faith.
