Nicki Minaj’s Most Explicit Video…Ever, Rihanna & Drake Date Details Undressed, “Breaking Bad” Reunion Already?

Winded Wednesday. Everyone is feeling winded after viewing Nicki Minaj‘s new “Anaconda” music video. Speaking of YMCMB, are we really seeing Drake and Rihanna already hooking back up? With reunions still on your mind, it seems like there’s already a “Breaking Bad” reunion? All this coming up in SOHH Whatcha Think.

1. Best We’ve Ever Seen

After watching Nicki Minaj’s new “Anaconda” music video, you’re either going to love her or hate her. But the bottom line is she’s all about flaunting her curves and lower backside. Peep the video:

Could this be Nicki Minaj’s best music video ever? Aside from the flashiness and booty-shaking, Nicki’s lyrics are pretty serious and very hip-hop. Is Nicki one of the best emcees in the game right now? #SOHHWhatchaThink?

2. A New Day

Who ever said Rihanna could only look good in a pair of fancy heels or Jordans? A new photo of Rih-Rih wearing a pair of New Balance sneakers on an alleged date with Drake has already started to make its rounds online. RumorFix is on it:

Rihanna mixed chic with casual for her latest date with Drake. And for her rendezvous with the Canadian rapper at the Griffin Nightclub in New York on Monday she ditched her high heels for a pair of New Balance sneakers instead. But Rihanna being Rihanna, she also wore a stunning floor length bright fuchsia dress teamed with a black and white clutch. Showcasing her jet black hair and bright pink lipstick, the sassy performer made quite an entrance at the celebrity friendly night spot. Rihanna and the Canadian rapper were linked together several months ago and it looks like they could be back on again after they were seen leaving the venue separately. (RumorFix)

Are we tired of the dating game with Rihanna? Could she just be having a good time with Drake? Are we just making too much of this? #SOHHWhatchaThink?

3. The Boys Are Back

Everyone remembers how great “Breaking Bad” was, and if you never had a chance to watch the series you should really take the rest of the summer to binge on Netflix with it. It looks like “Walter White” and “Jesse Pinkman” are back but not exactly the way you might think. RumorFix is once again on it:

Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul reunited for six minutes and 19 seconds to help promote the upcoming Emmys. The stars, who have amazing chemistry, did a spoof of the reality show Pawn Stars. Their version is called Barely Legal Pawn Shop. And Julia Louis-Dreyfus, who has won four Emmy Awards, goes into the shop to pawn one of them. (RumorFix)

LOL! Do you miss “Breaking Bad” right about now? #SOHHWhatchaThink?

That about wraps it up for today. This is SOHH On The Spot giving you the morning scoop from your favorite gossip sites.

All this coming up in SOHH Whatcha Think.

1. Anaconda Watch

Nicki Minaj is giving everyone a reason to make us question if there’s something going on with her and Drake courtesy of photos she released on Instagram this week. Her Instagram page tells the story:

Is there any reason not to start getting excited? #SOHHWhatchaThink?

2. Meet The Crew

Are you ready for a new season of “Love & Hip Hop” featuring a slew of new cast members? Rap-Up is on it:

“Love & Hip Hop” is going Hollywood. VH1 has called on some familiar faces for the latest installment of its popular franchise.

The series will follow a new cast of celebrities and musicians including Ray J, Soulja Boy, Omarion, Lil Fizz, and Teairra Mari.

Ray J will explore his relationship with best friend and executive assistant Morgan Hardman, while cameras follow Soulja Boy and his girlfriend Nia Riley, the daughter of Teddy Riley.

New dad Omarion prepares to start a family with backup vocalist Apryl Jones, while his former B2K bandmate Lil Fizz thinks about settling down with his lover Amanda Secor. (Rap-Up)

Could we really see Omarion, Soulja Boy, Yung Berg and more really bonding on the small screen? #SOHHWhatchaThink?

3. Another Challenge

Rita Ora has just taken the Ice Bucket Challenge and the still shot is pretty amazing. RumorFix has the shot:

As far as I’m concerned, The ALS Ice Bucket Challenge never gets old, except the people who keep nominating — there are now of them!

Anyway, British singer Rita Ora joined the fun on the streets of New York City. And the “I Will Never Let You Down” singer didn’t let us down with her reaction.

The ALS challenge involves people dousing themselves with buckets of ice water posting it on social media then challenging others to do the same. If you don’t accept the challenge within 24 hours, you are supposed to donate to ALS, known as theLou Gehrig’s disease. (RumorFix)

What celebrity are you still waiting for in this challenge? Is there anyone who will refuse to do it? #SOHHWhatchaThink?

That about wraps it up for today. This is SOHH On The Spot giving you the morning scoop from your favorite gossip sites.

Kim K Pulls An Allen Iverson, J. Cole Heads To Mike Brown’s Hometown, Rihanna & Eminem Screwing Around?

Masterful Monday. It’s a day to feel mastered, so why not get things rolling with Kim Kardashian pulling off an Allen Iverson? Speaking of balling, is J. Cole‘s presence in Ferguson, Missouri going to help keep Mike Brown‘s memory alive? Speaking of feeling lively, can we expect Rihanna and Eminem to become an official couple? All this coming up in SOHH Whatcha Think.

1. Throwback

Could cornrows be making a comeback? If so, is Kim Kardashian the one we should be thanking? TooFab has the scoop:

What happened to Kim Kardashian’s hair?!?

The reality TV star shocked fans by posting photos of her with cornrows over the weekend on Instagram — but no, she didn’t actually go through with the surprising look.

On Sunday night’s “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” we learned that the Alicia Keys-inspired braids were only one of the many looks Kim sported for a new ad campaign for HYPE Energy Drink.

The photo shoot involved Kim not only wearing some very revealing outfits — including the one above, the black leather dominatrix-looking one below and costumes modeled after Marie Antoinette and Audrey Hepburn. (TooFab)

Should Kim K consider this? Cornrows have been on the steady decline for a while and even though Kim only did this for a campaign, could people buy into the look again? #SOHHWhatchaThink?

2. It’s A Cole, Cole, World

Since last week, there has been a tremendous amount of support for the Mike Brown campaign. The teenager’s shocking shooting by a police officer has created a lot of tension in the Midwest and throughout the nation. Cole went from doing a tribute song to heading out to Missouri. Complex has the info:

Cole first stopped by the scene where Brown was killed and spoke to protestors and other activists about the civil unrest taking place in Ferguson. He then made his way through the community and stopped at the QuikTrip gas station, which has been a major scene of attention in Ferguson since the incident last week. Cole was accompanied by members of his Dreamville label as he spoke with activists and citizens in the community throughout the day. Video of Cole speaking at the QuikTrip can be seen above. Additional images and footage are below, including ones from our own Complex team, who have been their since last Thursday. (Complex)

How will justice be served in this case? Is firing the police officer responsible for taking Mike Brown’s life enough? What will it take? #SOHHWhatchaThink?

3. HeHe For RiRi

Are we going to see Rihanna and Eminem hooking up anytime soon? We’ve always wondered if they had a little fling going on but now things are getting a bit more intense. RumorFix has the info:

Is Rihanna sending-out racy messages to Eminem?

The pair have been performing together to sold-out crowds at the MetLife Stadium in New York as part of their Monster Tour.

And on Sunday Rihanna released a racy touching herself image with “Shady” written across it — which of course is one of the rapper’s nick-names.

Rihanna’s sexy Twitter panty-image was captioned: “School. kills.”

The pair are of course proving to be very good for one another’s careers — both ‘Love The Way You Lie” and ‘The Monster’ have been Billboard Hot 100 number one hits spinning off the current tour.

Although there has been no hard evidence that the pair have been dating stranger things have happened, right? (RumorFix)

Uh-oh. Should we start looking at these two a little more closesly? #SOHHWhatchaThink?

That about wraps it up for today. This is SOHH On The Spot giving you the morning scoop from your favorite gossip sites.

Bad Boys 3 On The Way…For Real, Chris Brown’s Drug-Free, Childish Gambino Loses His Cool?

Frenzy Friday. We’re all over the place today, so why not get things started correctly with Bad Boys 3 on the way…but seriously this time? Speaking of things on the way, is Chris Brown on the way to a healthy life by being drug-free? Someone who seemed to be under the influence this week is Childish Gambino, did he really lose it on social media? All this coming up in SOHH Whatcha Think.

[Editor's Note: The views expressed in this column do not necessarily reflect those of SOHH]

1. Third Time’s The Charm

Don’t worry, it’s looking pretty real this time. After years and years of rumors claiming a Bad Boys 3 movie would be coming together, it looks like we are finally going to get it. But will both Martin Lawrence and Will Smith be in it? RumorFix is on it:

Good news for fans of the Bad Boys Franchise, Bad Boys 3 has been confirmed, RumorFix is reporting.

When asked whether a Bad Boys 3 is possible, Martin said that he has spoken with Jerry Bruckheimer and that the film is indeed happening. Martin told Conan, “Yes! I just talked to Jerry yesterday and he said that it is real and he is working on the script and that they are getting close.”

The 49-year-old actor starred in both previous films in the Bad Boys series alongside Will Smith. In July, Martin took to his Twitter account to commemorate the release of Bad Boys II. Martin posted a photo of himself and Will with the caption, “11 years ago today #BadBoysII was released in theaters. Feelin’ it’s about time for #3… Will what do you think? ” (RumorFix)

Could there really be a Bad Boys 3 without Will Smith? It’s good to see Martin Lawrence is down but don’t we need Big Willy to make it official? If not, who could make for a good replacement? #SOHHWhatchaThink?

2. Feelin’ Good, Feelin’ Great, How Are You?

Is Chris Brown a changed man? We all hope so. At the very least it looks like we can say he is cleaned up. TMZ has the info:

Chris Brown’s been partying his ass off, but as far as the judge in his Rihanna beating case is concerned … he’s been a model citizen — and his reward will be fewer random drug tests.

Chris was in court in L.A. Wednesday for a progress report on his probation, and the results were glowing — all his random drug tests were negative and he attended bi-weekly therapy sessions.

So the judge agreed to cut the singer a break, and scale back the number of drug tests from 3 a week … to just 2.

Pretty impressive for a guy who had to be carried out of a club back in June. (TMZ)

Is this a good thing for Chris? Could cutting back on the number of drug tests be a real reward or something Brown might not be ready for? #SOHHWhatchaThink?

3. Delete, Delete, Delete

Uh-oh. Is Childish Gambino mad at Donald Glover? Is Donald Glover losing touch with Chilidish Gambino? It seems the actor/rapper could not contain himself and had to let loose on social media this week. MTV has this covered:

Screen Shot 2014-08-15 at 10.06.13 AM

Screen Shot 2014-08-15 at 10.06.23 AM

Donald posted a lengthy string of tweets, touching on an array of subjects, from white privilege to the music industry to the public’s perception of young black males. He tweeted that he wrote the poem “after hearing a friend sobbing and after talking with my mom.”

And though he didn’t explicitly say so, the piece seems to be inspired, at least in some way, by the recent death of 18-year-old Mike Brown, who was shot and killed by a police officer in Ferguson, Missouri over the weekend, as well as the subsequent reactions — of the public, police, and media — to the tragic incident. He also is critical of “twitter activism,” potentially a response to hashtags, such as #IfTheyGunnedMeDown, which have become popular in the aftermath of the shooting. (MTV)

There is a lot to read, so make sure to check out the link and judge for yourself. Could we all be looking at this from the wrong angle? Is Gambino really making valid points? #SOHHWhatchaThink?

Nicki & Iggy Speak Up, Remy Ma Compares Prison To “Orange Is The New Black”, Rico Gives Free Love?

Thrilling Thursday. It’s a day filled with thrillers, so why not get it started with Nicki Minaj and Iggy Azalea getting interviewed? Not too shocking, then how about Remy Ma comparing prison to the “Orange Is The New Black” show? With freedom on your mind, is Rico Love giving out something for free-99? All this coming up in SOHH Whatcha Think.

1. Speak Up

Are we ever going to see Nicki Minaj and Iggy Azalea face-off? Probably not but the idea is pretty exciting when you think about a few assets they have in common. Rap-Up has a must-see clip:

In honor of the 2014 MTV Video Music Awards, VMA performers Nicki Minaj and Iggy Azalea sit down with entertainment tabloid TV host Dave Skylark, played by The Interview star James Franco, for “Dave Skylark’s Very Special VMA Special.”

During the 30-minute program, the uninformed Skylark asks the Aussie rapper if she knows Austrian actor Arnold Schwarzenegger and questions Nicki about her song “Super Bass,” or “Superb Ass” as he calls it, making for some funny and uncomfortable moments. (Rap-Up)

Is this promo going to be enough to make people want to tune-in? #SOHHWhatchaThink?

2. Orange Is Not The New Black

Does anyone really take what they see on television as actual? Even reality shows have appeared to be a bit more fake than real. Should we be surprised if “Orange Is The New Black” isn’t a true depiction of jail/prison? TMZ has the clip of Remy Ma addressing it:

Did TMZ try too hard for this one? Actually, how would Remy know about the show if she had been in jail when the show came out? #SOHHWhatchaThink?

3. Free Love

There’s nothing wrong with free stuff, especially when it’s music from Rico Love. It looks like he’s going to help summer go out with a bang. Rap-Up has the info:

One year after releasing his debut EP Discrete Luxury, Rico Love is giving away an entire album worth of free music. The Division1 hitmaker has announced his pre-album I Sin. The 9 original tracks will be available for download on August 27 featuring the single “He Got Money” with Future.

In the first episode of his “I Sin” vlog, Mr. Turn the Lights On explains what motivated the decision.

“I want to do something that’s really unheard of,” he said. “All I ask in return is that if you love the music and you appreciate the music, that I have you as a fan and you consistently buy my music and you grab a hold to me.” (Rap-Up)

Are you going to support the project? Is Rico Love one of the most underrated artists in the game? #SOHHWhatchaThink?
