Has fatherhood changed Chris BrownThat’s something that we all have to judge for ourselves. But his recent actions may sway that opinion.

Brown announced today that his seventh solo album will be titled Royalty, named after his 15 month-old-daughter.

Chris Brown is currently on his “One Hell of a Night Tour” with special guests Kid Ink, Omarion, Fetty Wap, and Teyana Taylor but took the time to tweet out the new title of his album. Brown has been in full father mode since it was announced that he had a daughter with a former model named Nia Guzman. Recently in an interview with Ryan Seacrest, Brown had nothing but good things to say about his new role as a father.

I think this was just a blessing in disguise with my daughter because I get a chance to look at her and teach her the right path and also be a father in my daughter’s life…Just to see a smile on her face—just to see the littlest things—is emotional for me, so I just love that aspect of being able to be a father now.

Brown hasn’t given a release date for Royalty but it is expected for this Fall and could even include a track with a contribution from Zayn Malik (former One Direction member). Brown told Capital FM “I don’t shy away from anyone and I think he’s a great artist…Now he’s doing his solo thing, I know he has a huge fan base and the fans are waiting to hear his stuff, so it would be cool to get down and collab.” Brown even referred to Malik as his “homeboy!”

Back to Royalty, here at the Social B., we just can’t get enough! She’s just so cute! Which might be part of the reason Brown told ET that “Being a father is great. I’ve been able to set aside my own wants and necessities for my daughter.”

Love & Hip Hop: Hollywood, stylized as LHHH, returns to VH1 on September 7th. When the show returns, the cast will include fan favorites, new faces, a Love & Hip Hop: NY veteran, and a cast member that is already making headlines. For the first time in LHH history, the show will feature an intimate relationship between two men. One of the men in that relationship (pictured below) is openly gay rapper/producer/model Milan Christopher.

The plot between Milan and Miles aka Sir Brock is said to be based around the fact that Milan wants his boyfriend, Miles, to proudly embrace his homosexuality and start a family. Miles is also in the music industry, but struggles with his homosexuality and his relationship with Milan due to his Christian faith and his fear of the consequences of being openly gay in the music industry.

The real story here is that Milan feels that he is being ostracized by the rest of his cast mates due to his sexuality. TMZ broke the story on August 11th that he “believes he’s being shunned by cast members because they don’t want to share the small screen with an openly gay rapper.” According to TMZ, Milan has been filming for around 3 weeks but his cast mates Ray J, Soulja BoyOmarion and Mally Mall are shunning him. TMZ reports that “a number of the rappers are upset with producers for hiring Milan … not because he’s gay but because he has no cred in the rap game. They believe producers hired Milan as a ‘sideshow’ and a ‘circus’ to goose ratings.” TMZ also reports that a number of rappers on the show have already told producers that they wont film scenes with Milan which includes any parties or events where he is in attendance.

Are Milan’s fellow cast mates homophobic? Is this entire story a ploy to get people interested in the new season? Is Milan playing the “gay card”? Sound off in the comments!


Catch Ray J and Princess, Teairra Mari, Omarion and Apryl, Fizz, Miss Nikki Baby, Soulja Boy and Nia Riley, Moniece Slaughter and her new boyfriend (?) LHHNY veteran Rich Dollaz, and Hazel-E this September on VH1!

Is Omarion The Father?

Is Omarion the father of his son?

Omarion and his Love and HipHop Hollywood Girlfriend have recently split and it’s all because Apryl refuses to give her son a paternity test to prove that he’s Omarion’s.

Omarion and AprylAccording to sources, Apryl and Omarion have a pretty good relationship, but their only problem is Omarion’s mom, Leslie. Allegedly, Leslie has been hinting to Omarion that his son looks to be biracial. She was also sure to mention that Apryl’s ex-boyfriend is Mexican.

Well, it seems that all of her accusations have finally settled with Omarion because he asked Apryl for a DNA test.

Now, the baby does look to have a little Mexican in him, but that does not prove that he’s not Omarion’s. He has both the same skin complexion, and hair texture as Apryl, but hey that’s none of my business!

A source claims that Omarion began to have second thoughts about paternity. “Omarion asked for a DNA test, and Apryl was offended” the source reveals. “She started crying and carrying on. After Apryl calmed down, Omarion asked again and she still said no.”

As a result, Omarion dumped Apryl! The best part is all of this was caught on camera and will be shown later this season on Love and Hip Hop Hollywood.
