Happy Friday! Here’s what we’re talking about as we head into the weekend.
Halle Berry is trying to make all women feel as sexy as she does with a new line of affordable lingerie called Scandale. “I understand that women want to feel sexy and beautiful. They want to have undergarments that are very functional. But to still feel beautiful when they take their clothes off. That’s really important and that’s a way to make women feel sexy and validated,” Berry told Women’s Wear Daily. The affordable line ranges from $7 panties to $18 bras. Sexy and affordable? Yes, please! The line will be available in select Target stores and on Target.com on Oct. 27. [Women’s Wear Daily]
Speaking of sexy, sultry R&B singer and actor Tyrese Gibson may be off the market. The Fast and Furious star is rumored to be dating the equally vivacious actress, Sanaa Lathan. TMZ spotted the two leaving dinner at the Cheesecake Factory with Lathan in the passenger’s seat of Gibson’s vehicle. Later that night, Lathan snapped a selfie of herself wearing her new jeans in Gibson’s house. We’ll wait and see if this is true. [TMZ]
Nick Cannon says the drama of his separation with Mariah Carey is not affecting their children. “They love mommy and they love daddy,” Cannon said during an interview on The Meredith Vieira Show. “We have always been people who have been on the coming and going, their life hasn’t changed one bit. We spend holidays together. We do everything that we are supposed to do together as a family.” Amid rumors of a messy divorce (including alleged feuding over their eight dogs), Cannon says their 4-year-old twins Monroe and Moroccan “are just happy.” [E!

We all need a little motivation every now and again. In his new Billboard magazine cover story, R&B superstar Usher reveals five people that inspire him to keep moving toward success. He lists Puff Daddy, Jeff Koons, Picasso, and the Dave Matthews Band among his key inspirations. He also says the mentorship of his mother, Jonetta Patton, helps him interact with the people in his life. [Billboard]
The world will never be the same after Nicki Minaj hosts the 2014 MTV Europe Music Awards. Or at least that’s what we’re led to believe in the latest promo video. Watch the predicted aftermath of a Nicki Minaj-dominated world below.
