5 Things Bae Will Love If You Take Her To See GIRLS NIGHT OUT [Video]

[With the summer smashes fully on-deck, SOHH's female crew went to check out the new Girls Trip New York City premiere last night (July 19) and had to give fellas five main reasons to take bae to see this all-out comedy! Peep 'em below along with some famous faces from the private Manhattan screening! All photo credit: Johnny Nunez / Getty Images]

1. Posee Days



One of the biggest things bae will love if you take her to see Girls Trip is the throwback memories she'll have from those college days. Those late dancing and clubbing nights and partying it up with the squad will have your girl reminiscing hard.

2. The Realness

It's time to go all the way up with hostess Remy Ma.

Another big thing bae will get out of seeing Girls Trip is that reality check everyone goes through once they graduate and have to deal with life goals. The family struggles - ups and downs, that 9 to 5 grind and having to get your indie grind own as a strong, independent woman.

3. No New Friends

The King of Brooklyn Maino touches down.

If you really want to make your girl happy, take her to see Girls Trip and watch those eyes glaze over her friendship goals. Let's face it, people change, people move and people straight up disappear. But those true day ones will always be there through thick and thin. This movie is gonna have bae really appreciating those true friends.

4. That Pee Scene

Legendary status with AZ!

Don't worry, guys can get some laughs in too. If you've seen the trailer, then you already know that pee scene is cray-cray. Without spoiling anything, let's just say you should use the bathroom before the flick starts because you might reenact that same very scene!

5. Competition

The Roc is in the building courtesy of Lenny S!

While you won't see Idris Elba, fellas, you might want to work on your own charm after bae gets her eyes on Kofi Siriboe. Let's just say, after wifey is done with this movie, she's going to set the bar up a little higher than normal and will likely make the reward worth it, fellas.

Check out Girls Trip as it lands in theaters nationwide Friday, July 21.

Xzibit Flexes His Comedic Side, Joins TIDAL's One-Stop Laugh Spot

"Empire" star Xzibit is out here showing fans he's much more than the bad guy you love to hate. The hip-hop veteran has teamed up with comedian Cipha Sounds on his latest TIDAL original series "Hip Hop Improv."

Within the latest broadcast, X to the Z gets uber personal with Cipha and speaks on his late friend Nate Dogg.

TIDAL is excited to bring you another episode of its "Hip Hop Improv with Cipha Sounds" series starring rapper and former Pimp My Ride host, Xzibit. The episode features Xzibit sharing a story about former rapper and friend, Nate Dogg, as well as improvisational skits from Cipha Sounds and his team, A Tribe Called YES. The "Hip Hop Improv with Cipha Sounds" series adds to TIDAL's expansion into a robust visual ecosystem of original video content and films beyond music videos and livestreams.



Recently, Cipha spoke to SOHH about why TIDAL subscribers should check out his new series.

"The first reason you should watch "Hip Hop Improv" is because obviously I love doing comedy and comedy in its own right is a great reason to watch. No other platform has a comedy program like we do. The second reason is because I mix it with the hip-hop. So, there's only one other person in the world that can mix hip-hop and comedy similarly to what I do and that's Nick Cannon. He's busy being rich so he's not gonna do it. So that leaves me. The third reason is because you get amazing, unheard stories from celebrities and hip-hop personalities. I don't really have an interview style, everyone feels like I'm their friend. They really give the nitty gritty stories about their childhood. It's something they've really talked about before. Fat Joe talked about going to prison and he never talks about. You're going to get these unheard stories." (SOHH)

In January, Xzibit's "Empire" received the green light for a fourth season renewal.

Empire was renewed for a fourth season by Fox, the network announced at the 2017 Winter TCA Press Tour on Wednesday. In December, Empire's fall finale, which aired an hour earlier at 8 p.m. to help launch co-creator Lee Daniels' new show Star, garnered 7.57 million viewers. The decision to renew the musical drama was surely a no-brainer for Fox, as it's TV's no. 1 broadcast drama, a title its held for the last three seasons in the all-important adults 18-49 demo. (E! News)

A few months ago, "Empire" actress Serayah spoke to SOHH about how long she sees their show going.

"I definitely see "Empire" having a great run but ending on a good note. We started off as a pilot for a new show and the success that we all wanted and dreamt of forever, we all got to share that together. I feel like the end will come and be very great and everyone will be very happy with it and understand it. But I don't see it being a "Law & Order" type of thing where it lasts that, that, that long. It will last just enough for our fans and our cast." (SOHH)

Rihanna, Machine Gun Kelly, Pharrell & More React To Linkin Park's Chester Bennington's Death

Grammy-winning singer Rihanna, Machine Gun Kelly, Pharrell and more musicians have all come forward to remember the life of late Linkin Park group member Chester Bennington.

Following news of his death, everyone from RiRi to West Coast rap veteran Xzibit reflected on Bennington's life.







Love my little sisters... Gave me a big hug... Then this happened!!! #chester #LP4EVER

@justinhires is a fool #freeoj #ok

A post shared by Marlon Wayans (@marlonwayans) on Jul 20, 2017 at 3:40pm PDT


Early Thursday afternoon, news went viral about Bennington's death.

Linkin Park bandmate Mike Shinoda tweeted "shocked and heartbroken, but it's true. An official statement will come out as soon as we have one." Bennington struggled with drug and alcohol addictions at various times during his life. He spoke openly about both, as well as about being molested by an older man when he was a child. (Billboard)

Additional reports claim Chester has left behind six children.

Law enforcement sources tell us the singer hanged himself at a private residence in Palos Verdes Estates in L.A. County. His body was discovered Thursday just before 9 AM. Chester was married with 6 children from 2 wives. (TMZ)



Over a decade ago, Linkin Park crossed into the rap game by collaborating with music mogul JAY-Z.

In 2004, Bennington and Linkin Park released the collaborative Collision Course EP with Jay Z. Each of the EP's six tracks serves as a mashup of two songs, one from each artist. The "Numb/Encore" pairing ultimately won the Grammy for Best Rap/Sung Collaboration. (Complex)

Fallen sports icon O.J. Simpson is a free man - again. The former NFL superstar has been granted parole after serving nearly 10 years behind bars on a robbery conviction.

Simpson appeared in court Thursday (July 20) and caught the second break of his lifetime by avoiding serving a full 33-year bid.

The imprisoned former NFL player could be released as early as Oct. 1. Simpson, 70, delivered a rambling account of the case to the parole board earlier today, maintaining that he didn't intend to steal but "wish this would have never happened." (ABC News)

Earlier in the day, New York rapper 50 Cent acknowledged Simpson's big court day.

Buzz developed all week long about Simpson getting his shot at freedom.

Last month, music mogul JAY-Z raised eyebrows with his "The Story of O.J." single.

A$AP Rocky & Kendall Jenner Look Like They're Chasing Relationship Goals Again

New York rapper A$AP Rocky and Kendall Jenner look reunited. A new pic has gone viral of the on-again, off-again couple.

Following various split reports, a fresh shot shows Rocky and Jenner looking like an inseparable duo again.

Last week, A$AP sent social media into a frenzy over whether he had a new girlfriend or simply teased a photo shoot pic.


Last month, buzz developed about A$AP and Kendall Jenner engagement rumors.

Who's ready for a Jenner wedding? Kendall Jenner, 21, sparked her own engagement rumors by wearing an absolutely massive diamond on her left ring finger - you know, that finger! Kendall was out in New York City for a date night with rumored beau, ASAP Rocky, and made no attempt to cover up the distracting sparkler. ASAP was curiously wearing an identical diamond ring on his left ring finger, too. Is there a rhyme or reason to their matching accessories? (Hollywood Life)

Recently, a pic went viral of Jenner appearing to wear a life-changing ring.
