Now here is some Sunday cuteness for you! Recently Tamar Braxton covered the latest issue of “Black Woman Style Report’ magazine while cradling son Logan. This is the second magazine cover the mother and son duo have graced and my, how Logan has grown since his debut on Ebony magazine earlier this year. Currently the hard working mommy has plenty on her plate, as she has released 2 singles this week- “All the Way Home” and “She Can Have You,” and is currently celebrating the news of her recent Grammy nomination! You go, T! We wish this bossy lady a HUGE congrats and we can’t wait to see what else she has in store for her fans.
The last time Drake spoke with GQ, he ended up looking like a creep given he hit on the journalist interviewing him in the corniest way imaginable. In his latest cover story, though, Aubrey scales it back a bit and instead chooses to focus on the purpose of the story: his damn self.
Yes, Drake opens up about sex and promiscuity, love, his rift with Chris Brown, and criticism he faces from his rap peers.
On why he isn’t laying it low and spreading it wide:
“You know the way fighters don’t f**k before the fight? Sometimes I feel like I’m so focused on training my body and getting my mind right to create this album that sex isn’t one of my main priorities. If someone is around that I know and trust, I’m down. But I’m not going to end up with some stranger at this party.”
On what he makes of other rappers criticizing him:
“You notice they don’t criticize the music itself, though…I’m okay with that.”
On his beef with Chris Brown:
“I don’t want my name to be synonymous with that guy’s name. I really don’t. I wish we could sit down, just like you and me are right now, and talk it out man-to-man. But that’s not going to happen. I’m not confrontational, but if someone challenges, I’m not going to back down. … It’s embarrassing, the amount of media coverage. Two rappers fighting over the woman. He’s not even a rapper, but still, it’s the last way you want your name out there. It distracts from the music. But he’s made me the enemy, and that’s the way it’s gonna stay, I guess. … If I think about it too much, I feel it wrapping around my foot, like I get a feeling it could end really badly.”
On what he learned about love during a lunch with Will Smith:
“I had lunch the other day with someone I extremely look up to. Okay—I had lunch with Will Smith, and listening to him talk, it made me think I don’t know what love is. He said something profound. He said love is when you become one and you need that person. It’s not about wanting anymore, you need that person. Hearing that, I don’t know if I’ve ever felt that way. I’ve held women in very high regard almost to the point where I felt like I needed them for a very long time, but I don’t know if I comprehend it yet, and I’m okay with that. I’ve made a lot of music about love being the only thing I’m missing. I think this is the first album I’ve made saying, I’m okay. I’m enjoying it right now. Maybe this is my time to grind it out, make a run for it and add some memories with my boys.”
On making $ 250 million by the time he’s 29:
“I feel this great responsibility to see how far can we take it, how out of reach can I set that bar for whoever comes after. While I’m here, I’m gonna keep pushing that bar higher and higher up and make you really work for it.”
Better, but he’s still a weirdo and there’s nothing wrong with making new friends, you guys. Check out the full interview over at GQ.com.

Beyonce is all nude and sparkly on the cover of Flaunt magazine. The singer stripped down to her birthday suit and doused herself with glitter for Flaunt’s Context Issue, in which the sexy singer bares her flawless body in a set of images photographed by Tony Duran.
The African-themed photoshoot was reportedly done back in 2011 and was featured in Beyonce’s Year of 4 album campaign, but it isn’t known why the pics are just now surfacing online and in print.
Beyoncé Talks Apathy, Privacy, and Charges of Hypocrisy in New Q&A
We posted her surprisingly random Q&A yesterday where she talked about everything but music, like how to put together the perfect romantic picnic, her thoughts on gluten (sorry Gwyneth Paltrow, your BFF Beyonce is “okay” with it), and whether or not its hypocritical for her to promote Pepsi and health & wellness with First Lady Michelle Obama all at the same time.
Read those quotes here, and check out more pics from her shoot below:
Tamar Braxton has been on the cover of a number of magazines lately and she was recently featured in Flaunt magazine.

During the magazine interview, she dished on not wanting to get pregnant again, her 13 year hiatus, and using her faith to balance her life and career. She also talked about what inspired her to write the song “Love and War” as well as what made her get so hot and sexy in her “Hot Sugar” video.

When you get to the check-out line at the grocery store this week, try to keep your composure if you happen to notice Kelly Rowland showing off that sexy bikini body of hers on the cover of the October 2013 issue of Shape Magazine!
Inside, the 32-year-old R&B singer talks about her favorite part of her body, what she likes to do when she’s in relaxation mode and how staying in shape makes her feel “sexy” because “Isn’t that everyone’s goal when they work out, to look good naked?”
Yes, but not everyone can (or will) look good as you do, Kelly!
Read more quotes from the issue below.
On how she relaxes:
“When I want to relax, I usually cook or watch an episode of Game of Thrones. But if I’m really worried about something, nothing is better than a walk on the beach, which is where I meditate. It’s so peaceful. And by meditate, I mean talk to God. Prayer is my best de-stresser.”
On finding something she loves about her body:
“My trainer always tells me to find something I love about my body. For me, it’s my arms, which I got from my grandmother. I remember she always wore tank tops and cute little shirts that showed off her upper body, and I thought it was so cool! So I’m proud to say, I love my toned arms.”
On the part of her body she works out the most:
“What I’ve learned is, I use my core for everything. Absolutely everything. When I’m dancing on stage, when i’m walking around — I have to make sure that my core is strong, is tight. You use it for everything.”
On her strenuous workout regimen:
“I work out five or six times a week. I feel better, look better, sleep better. As I’m getting older, the Rowland family trait of having bigger bottoms is taking its toll on my hips and butt. The other day, [my trainer] had me doing squats that were so hard I wanted to kill her. But my behind is getting higher and tighter. Exercise really does change your body.”
On her secret to controlling cravings:
“When I want a steak, I grill some Portobello mushrooms and put a little goat cheese on them. And I’ve learned to satisfy my sweet tooth by replacing Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups with half a tablespoon of almond butter on half a banana.”
