Kendrick Lamar

K. Dot is laid back, tremendously talented, has a funny bone, is self-reflective, an introvert and last but not least quiet. You never hear about him sounding off about any foolishness and he barely uses social media (major plus!). He also isn’t flashy and would rather invest his money than spend it on frivolous things. His longtime girlfriend Whitney Alford has a great guy on her hands!




He and Ashanti may not have worked out but you can’t help but wonder what it would be like to spend a romantic evening with Nelly. He seems to be opinionated, funny, charismatic and private, which gives him a lot of points.


Serge Ibaka

Keri Hilson, we’re so jealous! Serge Ibaka of the Oklahoma City Thunder is not only a looker, but he speaks four languages and is one of the best centers in the NBA. Not to mention he is quite stylish!  His PDA with his bae just makes us wish we were the lucky lady by his side.

Kevin Hart

By the looks of his Instagram, funny man Kevin Hart is a great boyfriend to his girlfriend Nikko. He lovingly refers to her as his rib and proudly takes her everywhere he can. Just the other day he did a just because gesture and surprised her with a dozen of roses.


Terrence J

Terrence J started catching our attention as he blossomed from a goofy host on 106 & Park to into a sexier demeanor. He’s not in the spotlight too much but when he is he presents himself to be a humble, funny sweet guy. Vixens, would you date him?



He doesn’t age, has an eccentric fashion sense and did we say he doesn’t age?  He’s an incredible musician and never seems to find himself caught up in any drama. Could he be your bae?

Carmelo Anthony

He’s dapper, boyishly handsome and will go down as a NBA legend in the next decade or so. Whether rocking a fedora or a fitted cap, Carmelo Anthony turns heads on and off the court. Though they keep their relationship pretty private there is no doubt that he has an unconditional love for his wife LaLa and we can’t help but want to spend a day in her shoes.


Drake is an open book when it comes to his feelings and past boos and baes. By the sound of his music, he puts his all into his relationships, wearing his heart on his sleeve and being proud of it. He’s a sweetheart and who doesn’t want a sweetheart as a boyfriend?

McKinley Freeman

Every week on Hit the Floor, many Vixens make googly eyes through the screen at actor McKinley Freeman.  We surely wouldn’t mind trading places with actress Taylour Paige, who gets to get cuffed on-screen as his girlfriend Ahsha on the series.

Omari Hardwick

In Tyler Perry’s For Colored Girls  he played a married man that was on the DL. On BET’s Being Mary Jane he plays a two-timing husband who essentially does not have a job. None of these roles take away the wonder about what it would be like to be on the arm of actor Omari Hardwick. Between his amazingly good looks and sculpted body, the Power actor is on a lot of Vixens minds.


J. Cole

J. Cole doesn’t do much. He releases a project here and there, blows us away with compelling music videos and then goes into hiding—and we like that! He has an adorable quality that most rappers lack which gives him an allure. He has a girlfriend that keeps out of the spotlight who he may or may not be engaged to. Whether they are getting hitched or not, we are sure that she is a lucky girl!

Beyoncé, Rihanna, And J. Lo Make Forbes’ Highest-Paid Women In Music List

As November comes to a close, many publications will be crafting their year-end lists for all things pop culture. Forbes released a ranking of the world's highest-paid women in music on Monday (Nov. 19), with Beyoncé, Jennifer Lopez, and Rihanna holding it down for women of color.

Beyoncé comes in at No. 3 on the list with an earning of $60 million as she made most of her money through her historical Coachella performance, the joint album with husband JAY-Z, Everything is Love, and the Carters' On The Run II Tour in support of its release.

Jennifer Lopez made No. 6 for earnings tallying of over $47 million thanks to her lucrative Las Vegas residency, endorsements, and shows including World of Dance where she serves as a judge.

Rihanna follows behind the "Love Don't Cost A Thing" diva at No. 7 with earnings of over $37.5 million. Although she hasn't toured since 2016—thanks to her cosmetics and lingerie lines, Fenty Beauty and Savage Lingerie—the Bajan pop star has been keeping herself busy.

Forbes' annual list (which factors in pretax earnings from June 1, 2017, through June 1, 2018) has placed Katy Perry at the top with over $83 million in profits due to her gig as an American Idol judge and her 80-date Witness: The Tour that brought in an estimated $1 million per night.

Kelly Rowland Hops In Her Bag With New Single "Kelly"

Kelly Rowland has it all and isn't afraid to brag about it on her new single, "Kelly."

Released Thursday (Nov. 22), the singer goes the clubby, confident route while rightfully dropping her attributes like her relationship with God, smoldering looks (a.k.a the drip) among other things. With "Kelly" being the first single since her 2013's Talk a Good Game, the singer comes out swinging, reminding everyone of her power in the game.

The mother of one has promised that her new tunes will be edgier and most honest than her past work that included vulnerable tracks like "Dirty Laundry" and massive hits like "Motivation" and "Commander." Speaking with Vogue over the summer, Ms. Kelly disclosed a few details behind the album.

“It’s about love, loss, and gain and whether it’s professional or with family or whatever, it’s just honest," she said. "I had no choice but to be honest and authentic with this record: it’s about friendship and marriage.”

She also explained a drop in confidence caused her hiatus. “I was thinking about pulling back from recording, but I couldn’t help myself: I still wanted to record. I still felt like I was missing something. The third year just came and left so fast. The fourth year I said: ‘I have to get to work’ and now I’m ready to release some music! I felt like I wasted so much time, and it was my husband who actually called me out on it. He said: ‘Babe, as great as those records were, I think you were nervous, you got gun-shy’, and when he said that it was like boom, a gong went off.”

Glad to have you back, Ms. Kelly. Listen to the eponymous record up top.
