Here’s what we’re talking about over our morning coffee:

Amidst all of the leaked nude photos of celebrities, there is one with a purpose. A very pregnant Alicia Keys posted a nude of her own on Instagram Saturday with her baby bump covered with a peace sign. “It’s you and me on a mission to create a kinder and more peaceful world,” wrote Keys. Keys participated in the two-day UN Foundation’s Social Good Summit. “We all want to do something but oftentimes we don’t feel empowered. That is why I created ‘We Are Here.’ Because it’s not about me. It’s about we.” Way to go, Alicia! [People]

While visiting The Queen Latifah Show, Jada Pinkett Smith revealed that she’ll star in the upcoming sequel, Magic Mike XXL. Although the role was originally written for a man, Pinkett Smith will be playing the owner of a strip club. Magic Mike XXL is set to release July 1, 2015. [HuffingtonPost]

After getting hitched to her long-time boyfriend, Maximillion Cooper, rapper Eve is happier than ever. Although being married isn’t exactly the ‘gangsta life’ she used to live, Eve thinks “it’s amazing!” “We were long-distance for a long time, and we both needed to see if this was the right situatuion–and thankfully it was,” said Eve. We couldn’t be happier for you! [People]

Ads for the Red Band Society have been removed from L.A. buses following complaints that photos of actress Octavia Spencer’s character being described as a “scary bitch” were offensive. Metro Los Angeles tweeted that they would be taking down the ads. [HollywoodReporter]

The Lion King is the most successful box office ticket of all time, grossing over $6.2 billion, worldwide. The stage performance of the Disney classic not only beat out The Phantom of the Opera at $6 billion, but it has also beat out the Titantic, Avatar and all of the Harry Potter movies. [NewsOne]

Early this morning, Kendrick Lamar debuted his new single, i on Soundcloud. The new track features a groovy vibe with a chorus that declares, “I love myself.” Take a listen to the new track and feel the self-love:
