Tamar Braxton Takes Home 3 Soul Train Music Awards

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.

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!

Mister Cee ADMITS He Has An “ADDICTION”, RECORDS “AIDS” PSA + Nick Cannon REBOOTING “Soul Train”

In a new PSA for the AIDS Healthcare Foundation, Mister Cee admits to having an addiction and urges people get tested for STDs.  Watch the PSA inside and get deets about Nick Cannon reviving "Soul Train".  

After a  long week of denials, Mister Cee has released a PSA on behalf of the AIDS Healthcare Foundation where he encourages listeners to use condoms and refrain from risky behavior.  In the clip, he admits to having an "addiction" and says he’s getting help.  You’ll recall that he told HOT 97 listeners that his addiction is to "instant gratification" not prostitutes.  SMH…  

And in television news…

"America’s Got Talent" host Nick Cannon has purchased the rights to "Soul Train."  The "RHOH" star plans to revamp the show and bring it back to the small screen with a total overhaul in the next few months.  A source close to Nick’s camp joked that Nick now "owns everything except Don Cornelius’ corpse."  

Are you ready to get on board?

2012 Soul Train Awards: Couple Shorty Da Prince & Paigion Of “106 & Park” BOO’D UP, Lil Mama STEPS Her Game Up, Fantasia’s NEW BOD & More

Photobucket

All kinds of surprises hit the red carpet of the 2012 Soul Train Awards last night in Las Vegas.  From "106 & Park" hosts Shorty Da Prince & Paigion finally confirming their couple-status to Lil Mama making a head turning entrance (in a good way) to blasts from the past like Karyn White & Jody Watley

 

We’ve got all the red carpet arrivals inside….

Well this explains why they ran a collabo internet campaign to become the newest hosts of BET’s "106 & Park."  Shorty Da Prince & Paigion have been a couple for years, as we’ve learned from sources who have known them at their past job.  And last night, at PH Live at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino at the Awards show, they put their coupledom on display for the first time.

The twosome were boo’d up on the carpet and at the show all night….and made it known they have indeed been a couple for a while.  Interesting.

Paigion, in a contour leather sleeved dress from Zara, kicked it backstage with rapper Lil Mama.  And dare we say it….we had to do a double take!  Chick stepped her game ALL the way up:

Maybe it’s the new blonde hair or good makeup (finally) or appropriate grown-up strapless gown she’s wearing that’s softened her look…but chick looks great.  Mad props to her styling team.  Hope she keeps it up!

Photobucket

Another blonde bombshell last night was Keyshia Cole.  She rocked her ankle strap Alexander McQueen heels with a little black one-sleeved dress.  Nice look for her.

Miguel brought Nazanin Mandi, his long time model girlfriend, along on the carpet with him.

Hey New Edition.

Faith Evans looked fab in a white front slit long sleeved dress with embellished shoulders.  Wish she would have worn sandals to soften the look even more. 

Photobucket

John Legend was flying solo as his fiance Chrissy was off shooting an ad campaign.

Fantasia has been working out extra hard these days.  So she showed off her new bod on the carpet last night.  She could have done without the tights in Vegas and been a little more revealing instead of church lady, but she looks good nonetheless….

The newly engaged "Vampire Diaries" star Kat Graham kept it extra colorful as always in a floral one shoulder dress with a sexy mile-high slit.
