Celebs turned out in droves for last night’s ASCAP Music Awards at the Beverly Hilton Hotel.  Check out Usher, 2 Chainz, Kendrick Lamar and more getting honored, and the fab folks who came out to support.

It was a big night in music kicking off BET Awards weekend.  The ASCAP Music Awards honor phenomenal artists in songwriting and publishing within Gospel, R&B, Rap, and Hip Hop. And since TheYBF.com was there on the scene, we’ve got who was there.

While Jermaine Dupri’s’ live band kept the crowd entertained, Usher copped a big award for his accomplishments in the music biz.

These pants are extra snug in certain "areas", but we’re liking this all white on Ursh.

Usher was presented with the ASCAP Golden Note Award. And his colleagues Jimmy Jam, Terry Lewis and L.A. Reid praised his growth as an outstanding artist and father…and recounted his "excellent taste" in women and wild NY weekends with Diddy. Oh?

In Usher’s acceptance speech, he thanked everyone who helped him achieve his dreams and gave a sentimental thank you to his mother, Jonetta Patton, who was front and center along with girlfriend, Grace Miguel.  Yup…

Diddy danced his way on the stage to help honor his long time homie Usher.

Kendrick Lamar was honored by his mentor Dr. Dre. on stage.  The "Poetic Justice" rapper copped an award as a new up-and-comer in entertainment. And his biggest believer Dr. Dre presented the ASCAP Vanguard Award citing Lamar as "ahead of the trends and talented. He is a class act and I’m proud to know and work with him. And he’s continuing the legacy of Compton.”

Agreed Dre.

Singer and actress LeToya Luckett has landed a recurring role on VH1′s "Single Ladies".  Find out who she’ll be playing inside and get the deets on Jamie Foxx’s upcoming TNT project.

 

"She Don’t" singer LeToya Luckett, who first rose to fame as one of the founding members of Destiny’s Child, has just landed a plum role on the hit VH1 series "Single Ladies." LeToya, will play Felicia Price, the icy founder and Senior Partner of Price Management, one of the most power music management companies in the world. Hmm….we wonder if she’ll put a little bit of Mathew Knowles into the character?

Also, funnyman Damien Wayans, who also starred in the BET series "Second Generation Wayans" has joined the cast. He’ll play David Berenger, a slick manage at Price Management and a very powerful player on the Atlanta music scene.

"Single Ladies", starring LisaRaye McCoy, Charity Shea and Denise Vasi, is due to return Fall 2013 on VH1.

Oscar-winning actor Jamie Foxx, who’s currently filming The Amazing Spider-Man 2, has made several notable moves behind the camera in Hollywood.  First, the funnyman inked a deal with the Syfy channel to create a five-part horror anthology. And now, TNT has revealed that Jamie is producing and developing a new series for the network titled, "Dad, Stop Embarrassing Me."

The series will be loosely based on Jamie’s relationship with his 18-year-old daughter, Corinne. A TNT statement explained the show’s concept saying,

"Every teenager is embarrassed by his/her parents. But what if your dad decided to descend upon your life in every way? Inspired by Jamie Foxx’s relationship with his 18-year-old daughter, this comedy explores the dynamic between a parent and a child and all the embarrassment that comes with it."

TNT has not revealed when production of "Dad, Stop Embarrassing Me" will begin, but Syfy has announced that Jamie’s horror series will air in October.

Congrats to Jamie and Corinne.

EXTRAS:

1.  In a statement released earlier today, The National Basketball Association and National Basketball Players Association announced that they will contribute $ 1 million to support relief efforts in the Oklahoma City area. Also, The Oklahoma City Thunder and Thunder star Kevin Durant have each donated $ 1 million to the relief efforts as donations from other NBA teams, and current and former players continue to pour in.

Well isn’t this special…

 

LeToya Luckett just landed in London early this morning.  And her first stop was very likely North Greenwhich Arena to see her rumored boyfriend Kevin Durant ball out for TEAM USA tonight.  Interestingly, Trina, who is rumored to be dating Kevin’s USA teammate James Harden, flew into London this week as well.  Pics inside…

Singer LeToya’s Luckett’s bestie Keshia Knight Pulliam posted a pic of LeToya, rapper Trina, a friend and herself having a ladies’ night out in Londontown tonight.  And the "Torn" singer tweeted about her long flight into the city.  We’re pretty sure she jetted across the pond to cheer on her boo Kevin Durant in the Olympics.

She posted a pic of her and Keshia saying, "Look who I found in London."

LeToya and Kevin, as well as Trina & James, have been mum about whether they are or aren’t dating.  But pics speak for themselves.  Not mad at all.  Go USA!
