Alexis On Advice For Amber Rose, Gag Orders & Being More Than Yeezy's Ex (Pg. 2)

What was your reaction to seeing those two for the first time?
I think that at that point, you know sometimes you go through things and you're like "I just want to do something different" and I think that's what he was experiencing at that time so he just did something different. Not to say that she's bad and I'm good, nothing like that, but that's just what he wanted at that time.

If you had to give any type of advice to Amber since she’s now an infamous Kanye West ex, what you would tell her?
I have no comment on that. I just have no words for her. But I wish her luck in her future, everybody deserves somebody.

Has it been hard getting rid of that tag of being 'Ye's fiancée? Is that something you consciously wanted to rid yourself of?
No, it was just a part of my life, but I'm really confident in who I am and what it is I do. Anybody who meets me and gets to know me, I don't think it would sway their decision either way on whether they like me or not. Either they will or they won't.

Let’s put one more rumor to rest – did you ever have a gag order?
Hell no! Because seriously when Kanye and I first met he wasn't as major as he is now and we were real friends, so how do I ask my friend who's been there for so long and all of sudden be like ‘You can't say this.’ Like no, I'm not doing that. He wouldn't even ask.

Glad to hear. So how’s the love life now?
I'm happy, but I will not settle for less and I have whole list of what I want…

Is it a longass list like Chili’s?
(Laughs) I mean, you know, it's not unrealistic.

I get it, you just don't want to lower your standards.
Right. I feel like you get what you want out of something, so I'm not going to waste my time.

Think you’d date another rapper?

Sanaa Lathan Stars In Chilling Trailer For Jordan Peele’s ‘Twilight Zone’ Reboot

Sanaa Lathan stars in the chilling new trailer for Jordan Peele’s reboot of The Twilight Zone. Set behind a blood-curling instrumental, the mysterious teaser appears to center around the concept of time and numeric synchronicities.

The creepy clip also features Adam Scott, John Cho, Kumail Nanjiani, Tracy Morgan and Peele, who will host and produce the latest revival of the classic horror series through his Monkeypaw Productions imprint.

The Twilight Zone, created by Rod Sterling, debuted in 1959 and aired for five seasons. The show was rebooted in 1985, and again in 2002.

“I was terrified,” Peele told Variety last year of taking on the remake. “Why would I ever jump into the most established, pristine shoes in all of the genre? I could rip Twilight Zone off and call it something different and not be compared to Rod Serling. So I stepped away from it. And then several months later I got another call.”

It's a good thing that Peele faced his fears, because The Twilight Zone and his forthcoming horror flick, US, prove that he knows how to scare up anticipation.

The Twilight Zone debuts April 1 on CBS All Access. Check the video above for the trailer.

Amy Winehouse Hologram Tour Postponed Over “Unique Challenges”

Amy Winehouse's hologram tour is officially postponed, BASE Hologram, the company behind the digital production, announced via Twitter Tuesday (Feb. 19).

“In developing the type of highly ambitious, state of the art hologram/augmented reality theatrical event that would truly capture her genius and incredible artistic and social contributions, we encountered some unique challenges and sensitivities,” the company revealed.

The tour, originally scheduled to launch sometime this year, is delayed until BASE can “determine the best path to a creatively spectacular production that would properly honor Amy’s legacy.”

Mitch Winehouse, the “Back to Black” singer's father, announced the tour last fall, which was expected to feature a live band backing a digital projection of Winehouse.

Winehouse died from alcohol poisoning in 2011, following a very public battle with addiction that ultimately cut her life short. Proceeds from the tour will benefit the Amy Winehouse Foundation, an organization that works to prevent “the effects of drug and alcohol misuse on young people.”
