Radar 6/14: The Pop Culture Periscope

Hey ladies! Welcome to the middle of June, where everyone in the city scurries to see whomever they must because for the next three weeks, the streets will be empty. From the BET Awards to our own ESSENCE Music Festival on July 4 weekend, it’s a whirlwind of fun and we can’t wait. But before we get carried away, did you catch the premiere of HBO’s vamp drama “True Blood” last night? We did and Rutina Wesley warmed our vampy hearts! We also drooled a bit — OK, a lot — over all the cuties running back and forth during the opening World Cup Soccer games in South Africa. England striker Carlton Cole anyone? Now, let’s get started on this week!
