Are Black Emojis On The Way?

Emojis may be about to get a bit more color, according to Unicode Consortium, the company which regulates the characters.

“People all over the world want to have emoji that reflect more human diversity, especially for skin tone. The Unicode emoji characters for people and body parts are meant to be generic, yet following the precedents set by the original Japanese carrier images, they are often shown with a light skin tone instead of a more generic (inhuman) appearance, such as a yellow/orange color or a silhouette,” the company wrote on its website.

To that end, Unicode Version 8.0 — the latest Unicode update — may add five symbol modifier characters, offering deeper ranges of skin tone. The new colors are based on the Fitzpatrick Scale, which classifies various skin types. However, it is important to note that the update is only a draft for the time being.

The decision comes after public outcry…

THIS JUST IN — LAHH Hollywood star Yung Berg was arrested early this morning for allegedly attacking his girlfriend at the Gershwin Hotel. According to the report, the couple got into a heated argument and he “allegedly grabbed her by the neck, threw her to the floor, dragged her by her hair and hit her in the face.” The official charge is “obstruction of breathing.”  Yep, someone VERY likely got choked.

Although the report does not mention the “girlfriend” by name, Yung Berg has posted several pics with his co-star Masika, on Instagram, and even posted the pic above with the caption “Bae” a few hours ago.  But, if you watch the show, you know that he possibly only posted these pics to make his other co-star whom he DOES confirm he’s sleeping with,

Election workers in Chicago and Cook County are still counting ballots.

That’s because some weren’t cast until early Wednesday morning.

At Welles Park on Chicago’s North Side,  many voters waited more than eight hours to cast their votes.

The final vote there was finally cast just after three a.m.

Voters say there were not enough election judges to handle the large turnout.

Many of those voters showed up to use the new “day of registration” option.

You better watch the throne, because the queen of rap is back.

Nicki Minaj released her first studio album, Pink Friday, back in 2010. Now, four years and a “Flawless” collaboration with Queen Bey later, she’s on the patent red heels of releasing The Pinkprint next month.

But first, the Head Barb in Charge is on the cover of V magazine to let us know that Her Royal Minajesty has returned—as if she ever really left. Inside the issue, Nicki opens up about what the highly-anticipated album means to her and her no-holds-barred attitude:

“I always push the envelope, because I’m Nicki Minaj. I have to. No matter who I’m on a song with, I feel like I have to say at least one thing that no one else is willing to say. Whether it’s Madonna, Britney or Beyonce, they always tell me, ‘Yes. Be Yourself. Talk your shit.'”

Soon-To-Be Mrs. Swaggy P? Nick Young Hints At Marriage For He & Iggy Azalea In DuJour Magazine (PHOTOS)

As the brightest, and swaggy-est, young star in the NBA, Nick Young has become quite the fan favorite and tabloid topic. But even his skills on the court and his impeccable fashion sense haven’t been able to overshadow his high-profile relationship with the oh-so-fancy Iggy Azalea.

In a new interview with DuJour magazine, the usually light-hearted and comical Swaggy P is in rare form while discussing his relationship with his rapper girlfriend:

“From her songs, I thought she’d be all about going to clubs and partying, but it’s the opposite of that. She wakes up early every morning to take care of her dogs, and she cooks for me. From her rapping, I was very surprised that she could do all that. She’s a really cool, down-to-earth person,” he said.

CONGRATS KELLY!!

Welcome to fab mommyhood Kelly Rowland!  The former Destiny’s Child singer gave birth to 7.5 pounds of bouncing baby boy yesterday at 4:30p EST.

His name is Titan Jewell Witherspoon, and we already know he’s a bundle of cuteness.

Kelly confirmed in a statement:

“We are thrilled to announce that today we are the proud parents of our first son.  We are blessed to report everyone is healthy and happy!”

Baby Titan was born just 6 months after The Witherspoons tied the knot in Costa Rica.  And Kelly announced her pregnancy one month after the wedding, posting a pair of Jordans on Instagram saying the new baby will be “stuntin’ like his daddy”.

Hip-Hop Rumors: Is Joseline Hernandez A Wanted Woman?

Originally posted on AllHipHop:

If you thought the mess from the LHHATL Reunion was done, think again.

Cast member Althea decided to press charges against the Puerto Rican Princess, and the NYPD have now put out a warrant for her arrest!

TMZ reports:

“Althea filed a police report, claiming Joseline was the instigator, and apparently the NYPD saw it Althea’s way … because there’s now an open case against Joseline. If she comes to NYC and gets pulled over or they spot her, she’ll be arrested for the alleged crime and possibly face charges.

Since the brawl … Benzino and Althea got the boot … and Althea filed suit against Joseline, claiming she was high on cocaine during the fight. She was served at her home last week.”

Welp Mona probably thought she was done hearing from Zino and TheaThea (is that how you spell it?) after kicking them off the show, but this…
