Pop the champagne!  The Miami Heat had a long night last night…and it didn’t really get started until after they copped their second NBA championship in a row.

 

Check out the pics inside of their champagne showers in the locker room, pics with Gabby, Sanaa, and more, plus video from their afterparty at Story….

After the Heat snapped team pics with the trophy and LeBron shook hands with Bill Russell before accepting the MVP trophy, the fellas headed back to the locker room for some champagne showers. 

Thanks to the folks at Moët Ice Impérial champagne (fancy champagne actually created to be served over ice), LeBron, Dwyane, Chris Bosh, Ray Allen, Mario Chalmers and the rest of the Champs were greeted in the locker room with 100 rare magnum bottles. And they’re the first people EVER to open them!  And then this champagne chaos happened:

Dwyane was spotted pouring some on his knee that gave him hell the entire playoff season.

Looks like the rumors of Dwyane & Gabby being on the rocks with cheating accusations aren’t true (which we checked out and came up with no credible leads).  Because Gabby was front and center at American Airlines Arenas popping bottles alongside her man and her friend Sanaa Lathan.

The girls even watched the game courtside together.

Gabby and her Think Like A Man Too cast, including Terrence J., took a private jet to Miami from Vegas for the championship game.

And Chris Bosh posed it up with his fam–his pregnant wife Adrienne, daughter Trinity and son Jackson.  His dad and brother were also there to cheer him on.

 

 

And over at the afterparty, Drake, Savannah Brinson, Gabby and more all joined the champs at Story nightclub for a crazy ass night.  Fun times!

 

Bron Bron’s bestie Jay-Z hasn’t publicly said anything about the win yet, but his wife surely did.  Beyonce posted on her website:

YES LEBRON! CONGRATS ON THE WIN!

Ha!  Gotta love it.

FAB FOLKS: Sanaa Lathan Hits Up Pharrell’s Myspace Performance + Kanye Jacks Solange’s Spotlight At Art Basel Switzerland

 photo SolangeKnowlesPerformsBetterDaysPresentedxaj85Vjtp7el_zpsf44ca74b.jpg

Solange Knowles loves performing in intimate artsy locations, so it’s no surprise that SHE was the surprise performance at Art Basel Switzerland last night.  But nobody likes to surprise folks more than Kanye West….so he popped up and stole the spotlight.

 

Pics & deets inside, plus Sanaa Lathan looking gorgeous at last night’s Myspace event….

 photo SolangeKnowlesSolangeKnowlesPerformsBetterhVysJhzp0tpx_zpsbca8f89f.jpg

Solange Knowles was her usual fabulous print-happy self in Mary Katrantzou threads at Art Basel Switzerland last night.  The "True" singer posed it up at ‘Better Days’, an art bar installation by Mickalene Thomas (pictured below) presented by Absolut Art Bureau in the city of Basel.  And her mom Miss Tina was there in the audience watching the performance:

   photo SolangeKnowlesPerformsBetterDaysPresentedheiUUi-ysuel_zpsbfd8dc5c.jpg  photo SolangeKnowlesPerformsBetterDaysPresentednijSLmnbyRjl_zps7140a5e0.jpg photo SolangeKnowlesPerformsBetterDaysPresented4-KC8vsohAVl_zpsc04a8ed1.jpg

But Solange wasn’t the only star at Art Basel Switzerland.  Mr. West made a surprise appearance in order to hold an impromptu listening session for Yeezus at the Design Miami/Basel Fair.  And Hollywood Reporter says all the high end art dealers and new media collectors skipped out of Solo’s performance once they heard Kanye was in the area at Messeplatz hall.  

THR dished:

After jokingly introducing himself as a "celebrity boyfriend," West reminded the crowd that "I got my start in art," rattling off the names of some admittedly prestigious art schools who had accepted West – that is, before the aspiring artist dropped out for lack of technical talent: "I realized I would never be a great visual artist of the world, and started to worry that I would end up working at an ad agency – no offense to anyone who does that."

West dropped a fascinating monologue on the impetus for his album before unveiling the first two tracks, which he played straight from a laptop computer, bobbing over it as the songs played. Before West could release a third, he was interrupted by chants demanding that he sing live. West hesitated, then yielded, delivering an aggressive, a capella performance of "New Slaves," a potent song that climaxed with an anti-Montauk mantra: "I’d rather be in the Factory than the Maybach" and "F— the Hamptons House!" While he seemed to be biting the hand that feeds him – West casually mentioned that he had been dining with the Kramlachs an hour earlier – the singer concluded the performance by standing at the door, and shaking hands with everyone as they exited.

Nice!

 

Meanwhile over in L.A. last night:

Kelly and Brandy were close to Whitney Houston and were two of the last people to spend time with her in her last days.  So it’s no surprise they’ve become close themselves.

MOVIE FAB: Sanaa Lathan & Terrence Howard STARRING In “Macbett” + Halle Berry REPRISING “STORM” For “X-MEN: Days of Future Past”

 photo ScreenShot2013-03-05at81026AM.png

The Best Man stars Sanaa Lathan and Terrence Howard are teaming up again for a remake of Shakespeare’s Macbeth.  Get the deets inside and find out what famous role Halle Berry is set to reprise…

 

Sanaa Lathan and Terrence Howard have signed on to join Blair Underwood and Evan Ross in a remake  of William Shakespeare’s Macbeth. The retooled film will be called Macbett and will shoot on location in Jamaica and Puerto Rico in September 2013.

Terrence, who also serves as executive producer of the film, will be working with writer/director Aleta Chappelle (who’ll make history as the first Black woman to direct a film version of the story).  Indiewire posted  the film’s  synopsis:

"after a gallant military victory, General Macbett (Wipes) encounters the “Weird Sisters,” who are the spirit daughters of Mother Africa and reign over fire, water, earth and sky. They delight in manipulating Macbett by feeding him predictions of royal titles including “King.” Macbett soon becomes obsessed with ambition, as does his beautiful and ruthless wife Lady Macbett (Lathan) .

"As Macbett and his Lady spiral downward, indulging in treachery and political assassinations, they are soon haunted by their murderous deeds and driven mad. In a true exemplification of a tragedy, Macbett is defeated by his own zealous thirst for power, a heartbreaking end to a once beloved Hero".

And in other news, Sanaa and Terrence will hopefully reprise their memorable role in The Best Man sequel called Best Man Holiday coming soon.

 

 

And in other movie news…

It’s official, Oscar-winning actress Halle Berry will return to the X-Men franchise in the role of Storm (which she originated in the first film) for the latest installment X-Men: Days of Future Past.  She told "Access Hollywood", "I’m in. I think I’m in. I am excited. I love Storm. That’s one of my favourite characters that I’ve played. And people love that character as well."

That sentiment was later confirmed with director Bryan Singer tweeted,

FIRST LOOK: Sanaa Lathan Gets FAB As The New Face Of PANTENE!

Actress Sanaa Lathan is putting her great looks and envious hair to good use.  She’s been named the brand new face of the Pantene Pro-V Nature Fusion collection.  And TheYBF.com has the first look at her fresh-faced new photoshoot for her new gig….

Pantene’s new Nature Fusion Moisture Balance Collection is getting all made up with a pretty face.  The 40-year-old "The Cleveland Show" actress, Sanaa Lathan, has just officially been named the new spokeswoman. 

As for how she keeps her hair looking naturally healthy with that flowing look she constantly rocks on the red carpet, she revealed, “It is important to me that I treat my hair with products that have naturally-derived ingredients, like Cassia in the Nature Fusion Moisture Balance Collection, which has made my hair so soft and strong.”

 

And since she doesn’t just wake up with perfectly healthy hair, she admits all the styling has indeed ripped her mane apart.  So she dished on her fave products that work for her.

 

“Throughout my life, Pantene has been one of the few hair care brands that effectively address the specific needs of my hair texture," Sanaa says about the product line. "My hair is prone to dryness and my career does not help the situation! All of the styling and heat on set leaves my hair dull, lifeless and damaged. I need a shampoo and conditioner that nourishes my hair and I want to use more natural products. That is why I love Nature Fusion Moisture Balance shampoo and conditioner. It is great that, as a black woman, I can look to a brand like Pantene to provide my hair with the nourishment it needs.”

Gorgeous pics.
