Will Smith Recalled A Vision Of His Career Being Ruined To David Letterman Before Oscars Slap



Will Smith spoke at length about a vision he had of his career being ruined while appearing on the new season of David Letterman’s Netflix show, My Next Guest Needs No Introduction. The interview was taped prior to his infamous slapping of Chris Rock at the 2022 Oscars ceremony.
Smith explained to Letterman that despite not being into drugs, there had been a two year period where he had gotten into ayahuasca and took 14 “journeys.” He described the one in question as the “most hellish psychological experience of my life.”

Matt Winkelmeyer / Getty Images“I drank, and it usually takes about 45 minutes to kick in,” Smith told the legendary talk show host. “And I’m sitting there and you always feel like, ‘Maybe it won’t kick in this time.’ So I’m drinking and sitting there and then all of a sudden it’s like I start seeing all of my money flying away, and my house is flying away and my career is going away.”
"My whole life is getting destroyed," he added.
As the vision went on, he says he heard his daughter Willow calling out for help, at which point he stopped caring about anything else: “Then slowly, I stopped caring about my money, I just wanted to get to Willow. I stopped caring about my house, I stopped caring about my career.”
Smith said that the experience, while frightening, helped him gain a new perspective on life.
He continued: "This is my fear in real life, and I’m in there and I’m wanting to vomit and all of that, and I hear a voice saying: 'This is what the f**k it is. This is what the f**k life is.'"
Smith's interview on My Next Guest Needs No Introduction is available on Netflix.

The Alchemist Is Sharing "Gems" From His Phone For A New YouTube Series



The Alchemist will be bringing fans new content through a series on YouTube titled, Phone Gold. The acclaimed producer announced the project in a post on Twitter, Friday, hinting at having an “endless well of gems”  in his possession.
"Anyone that knows me knows I film everything and my phone contains an endless well of gems," he wrote in the tweet. "Starting a new youtube series called Phone Gold. Stay tuned."

Scott Dudelson / Getty ImagesWhile he didn't provide any further details, Phone Gold won't be the first time Alchemist has operated on YouTube. Back in 2019, and later in 2021, the producer hinted on Twitter about having published an entire album with Earl Sweatshirt on YouTube under a different account name.
"We did one and dropped it already under a fake name. Youtube. Go find it. You are the one," he wrote in 2019.
In 2021, he reiterated that no one had found it: "We hid a whole album on youtube under a fake name and youtube page. Fake album cover, song titles, the whole 9. Nobody found it yet."
Alchemist is constantly staying busy, having released numerous collaborative albums in recent years, including with Conway the Machine, Freddie Gibbs, Armand Hammer, and several with Boldy James. He also recently worked for Kendrick Lamar for the Mr. Morale & the Big Steppers track “We Cry Together.” 
Check out the announcement for Alchemist's Phone Gold below.

Adele & Rich Paul Sit Courtside At Warriors Vs. Mavericks NBA Game



Fans of Adele and Rich Paul were worried about their relationship when it was revealed that the sports agent spent his girlfriend's birthday partying hard in Miami, but it seems that things between the two are moving along smoothly, as they're back to their usual routine of sitting courtside at NBA games not long after moving in together.
As Page Six reports, on Friday (May 20) the English singer and her man attended the Warriors vs. Mavericks NBA game in San Francisco. While Adele did her makeup in her usual style and dressed up in a double denim outfit paired with nude heels and gold hoop earrings, Paul kept things more casual in a black Nascar hoodie, jeans, and sneakers.

Harry How/Getty ImagesCameras caught Adele tossing her head back in laughter at some points during the evening, although others saw her looking utterly bored – chin in her hand as she stared out at the players.
Just last week, the mother of one shared a sweet IG carousel of heartwarming moments from her relationship, including a shot of them kissing backstage at her An Audience With Adele TV special in November, one of them at a softball game, and another of the duo promoting her most recent project, 30, at a McDonald's.

"Time flies," she wrote in the caption, alongside some loving emojis.
As we mentioned earlier, Adele spent her recent 34th birthday without her beau; instead, she celebrated in the company of her close friends at a pyjama party while Paul and LeBron James took over Miami during Formula 1 Grand Prix weekend – read more about that here, and tap back in with HNHH later for more pop culture news updates.

DJ Khaled Shares That He's In "Album Mode" With 21 Savage



DJ Khaled has been in the game for over 15 years. He's produced hits for some of the hottest A-listers like Beyonce, Chris Brown, Lil Wayne, Nicki Minaj, and more. Last year he released KHALED KHALED, a studio album that consisted of 14 tracks with artists like Drake, Bryson Tiller, Justin Timberlake, and other talents.
Now, it seems that the 46-year-old is ready to drop yet another project. In an Instagram post uploaded on May 18, the father of two showed his 28 million followers what he's been working on.
The first of eight pictures in his carousel showed rapper 21 Savage sitting in front of a mic. His caption read, "WE THE BEST LIKE DJ KHALED @21savage VOICE. Album mode, it's special!"

Johnny Nunez/Getty ImagesThe DJ also included pictures of him and 21 talking to each other, a boomerang of him vibing to an unheard song, as well as an image of him showing off his expensive watch. 
This all comes after Khaled admitted that he thinks no one can beat him in a Verzuz battle. When asked who he'd like to be paired against, he responded, "I really don't see nobody. My catalog is super strong... I mean that with love." He elaborated further by saying that he's been in the game for a long time. "You might want to Google it... I've been doing this sh*t for two decades. Khaled got hits."
Are you looking forward to what Khaled's going to cook up next? Let us know in the comments.

Emily Ratajkowski Wears Stunning Black Sheer Dress & Lingerie To Walk Her Dog



Even when she's off-duty from her modelling gigs, Emily Ratajkowski knows how to step out in style. Most recently, the mother of one was photographed walking her dog around Tribeca in a stunning sheer black knit dress from Coperni, priced at $585.
Beneath the designer garment, Em Rata wore a lacy black bra and panties, clearly visible for bypassers to take in. On her feet, she went for a casual vibe, throwing on a pair of the now sold-out Salomon Advanced sneakers ($195) and carrying a LeSportsac duffle bag.

Raymond Hall/Getty ImagesFor accessories, the My Body author picked out a chunky gold chain and slim black sunglasses; on her fingers, she wore a selection of rings. 
As Page Six notes, the 30-year-old has been very vocal about her personal style throughout her career. "I think a lot of people really feel that the idea of a woman being sexual or being sexualized is the opposite of feminism," she told Harper's Bazaar Arabia in 2017.

Raymond Hall/Getty Images"When I feel like, in some ways, that conversation itself can be oppressive to women, because you’re telling them how to dress and how to act, which is actually the opposite of feminism."

Emily Ratajkowski isn't the only socialite to make headlines for stepping out in sultry style recently. Earlier this week, Julia Fox was spotted grocery shopping in Hollywood, wearing an Alexander Wang denim blazer paired with an unreleased underwear set from the same designer – read more about that here, and tap back in with HNHH later for more pop culture news updates.

Sukihana is known for her boisterous personality and uncensored opinions. She garnered a great amount of popularity from starring on the cast of Love & Hip Hop: Miami, and hasn't stopped growing her fanbase since. With over 300,000 followers on Instagram, Suki is known to her fans as being a bold and confident artist who isn't ashamed to flaunt her stuff. 
That's exactly what she was doing at a show in Oakland, California before things go out of hand. While it was steal a fun time, there was some chaos throughout the night. Not only did the mother of three leave the event without her wig, but she also went home toothless. 

Video footage captured Suki, whose real name is Destiny Henderson, performing on stage while swinging her wig. She captioned the video, "Child it was 95 degrees in there I had to take my wig off but the show still went on." 
Further into the video, the rapper tossed her hair into the crowd-- which resulted in a scuffle. Two fans, a woman and a man, began wrestling over it. As Suki yelled into the mic, "Who caught the wig?" the man waved it in the air like a trophy.
View this post on InstagramA post shared by Suki with the good coochie (@sukihanatrillho)
After the concert was over, Sukihana took to IG with a very important message. "At this point," she started while yelling into the camera, "I don't want to pay no $20/30,000 for teeth if I can't eat crab legs... B*tch where is my tooth?" She then added, "I feel like b*tches is hating... What y'all stole it? Y'all stealing teeth now?"

Adding more humor to her issue, she called out Chrisean Rock, girlfriend of rapper Blueface, who is widely known for missing a front tooth as well. Suki tweeted, "They said blue face girlfriend stole my tooth."

Today (May 21) would've been the 50th birthday of The Notorious B.I.G., who was best known for crafting hits like "Juicy," "Big Poppa," "Mo Money Mo Problems" and "Ten Crack Commandments" before his untimely assassination on March 9th, 1997.
More time has passed since Biggie – born Christopher Wallace – died than the prolific recording artist actually spent alive on Earth, but his impact remains clearly felt to this day, nonetheless. In celebration of his legacy, today we're suggesting that you stream another of the New York native's biggest hits – "Hypnotize." 

"Ha, sicker than your average, Poppa twist cabbage off instinct / N*ggas don't think shit stink / Pink gators, my Detroit players / Timbs for my hooligans in Brooklyn (That's right)," the famous bars begin, featuring ad-libs by Diddy and a forever-iconic chorus done by Pamela Long.
The nearly four-minute-long song was released on March 4th, 1997 as the first single from his Life After Death record, and was ultimately the last that he would share before being killed in a drive-by shooting just a week later.
Which B.I.G. songs will you be streaming today to remember the late Ready to Die rapper? Sound off in the comments, and play "Hypnotize" on Spotify or Apple Music below.
Quotable Lyrics:
Recently n*ggas frontin', ain't sayin' nothin' (Nothin')
So I just speak my piece, keep my peace (Come on)
Cubans with the Jesus piece, with my peeps (Thank you)
Packin', askin', "Who want it?", you got it, n*gga, flaunt it
That Brooklyn bullshit, we on it

"The Ascension is my true introduction to the world. This project is so important to me because it’s just the tip of the iceberg. The listener will get a chance to see different sides of me musically while reflecting on my journey with ‘ascension’ in all things in my life," the artist explained in a statement.

"I make a conscious effort to be diverse," he continued. "It’s just the nature of my artistry and how I create. I’m inspired by so much so that just naturally comes out in the music."

In this age, with a lot of artists coming up and producing their own music and writing their own music, we’ve broadened the landscape of what artists can do."

YaYa Mayweather Wears T-Shirt With Her Mugshot On It For Her Birthday



Back in April of 2020, YaYa Mayweather, daughter of boxing champion Floyd Mayweather, stabbed a woman by the name of Lapattra Jacobs after finding her alone with NBA YoungBoy-- who is now her child's father. YaYa, whose real name is Iyanna, caused the woman to have lacerations in both arms, forcing her to undergo surgery.
Two years after the tragic incident, the 22-year-old pled guilty to aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. It was reported by The Shade Room that prosecutors suggested the mother take six years of probation. 

Cassidy Sparrow/Getty ImagesWhile her sentencing isn't until June 16, YaYa is reminiscing about the event right now. Yesterday (May 20), YaYa celebrated her birthday with friends and family. In a video of her preparing to blow out her candles, she can be seen wearing a t-shirt with her mugshot plastered on the front of it.
The picture on her clothing showed her wearing a purple wig as she mean mugged the camera with a swollen lip. The clip also made it known that she wasn't alone-- a man stood beside her wearing the exact same top. 
She and YB, born Kentrell DeSean Gaulden, have had their share of ups and downs, but it doesn't seem like YaYa is ready to cut ties with him romantically yet. Following the death of Atlanta rapper, Lil Keed, YaYa reflected on her relationship with the Louisiana artist.
She wrote on her IG story, "This is why while mine is still here... while I still got mine I'm going to love him loud and proud with a big smile on my face EVERY TIME regardless of how I 'look' to people who don't know what's really going on."

As Page Six Style notes, the famous family began flocking overseas on Friday, with photos of them stepping out in stylish Dolce & Gabbana looks upon arrival already surfacing online. For her part, the bride-to-be wore a beautiful red sheer corseted gown paired with a fur stole in the same vibrant colour.

NINO/Getty ImagesYounger sister Kim was photographed in a strappy cutout catsuit, still sporting the same white-blonde hair that she's had since the Met Gala earlier this month, while Khloé accessorized her corseted leopard-print gown with black sunglasses and large cross earrings.
Sisters Kylie and Kendall Jenner both wore black looks; the former paired a tight little black dress with some sporty, white-striped accessories while the latter – walking hand in hand with her beau, Devin Booker – was seen in a satin bustier, a sheer shirt, and a cross pendant choker.

NINO/Getty ImagesThe group is said to have dined at Ristorante Puny on Friday evening, and on Saturday afternoon, more paparazzi snaps of the reality stars out and about in Italy appeared, revealing their glamorous vacation outfits and pre-wedding plans.

NINO/Getty ImagesIn other news, while mama Khloé attends her sister's wedding, Tristan Thompson has been sharing heartwarming content with their shared daughter, True – check it out below, along with more photos from the Kardashian's trip to beautiful Italy.
