R&B crooner Ameriie was spotted performing in the UAE in Dubai recently. See pics of the "Touch" singer on stage and by the pool inside...
While her fans in the States await her Cymatika disc, Ameriie has been doing international shows and taking inspiration from her travels.
The "1 Thing" singer, who's been married for nearly two years to husband/manager Lenny Nicholson, recently jetted of to Dubai to perform a few of her hit singles.
Though she hasn't released any new music since last year's buzz single "Every Time", we're sure the international fans at Cirque Du Soir were happy to see her. They love YBf artists even when America doesn't pay much attention to them..
We're loving her auburn hair.
And before she hit the stage, she chilled poolside with international booker and party promoter Fred Frenchy. Fun times. Glad to see she's still doing her...

Well GOOD MORNING. OKC Thunder baller Serge Ibaka is giving us some chocolate for our morning coffee today with his brand new photoshoot. We've got what the NBA baller is serving in his new shirtless promo shoot...
He's 23 and taken. But we can still look.
Congolese-Spanish basketball player Serge Ibaka is busy with the NBA playoffs as his team is ranked #1 in the Western Conference. But he's found time to give us some sexy in a brand new promo shoot.
He may be a little pissed that he was snubbed for the second year in a row for Defensive Player of the Year, but he can be our defensive player anytime. Well, if Keri Hilson allows it. He and his singer/songwriter boo have been dating for a few months now, even taking a sexy mini-vacay together to Cabo for Valentine's Day & during the All-Star break.
By the way, the 6'10 Serge, who played for his country Congo in the Summer Olympics, started his own company called Avec Classe--which focuses on the classy lifestyle of himself and the people around him. And he speaks 5 languages.
Could he be any sexier?

Beyonce previews her "Standing In The Sun" song in her new H&M ad. Watch the commercial inside and see A$AP Rocky give his philosophy about life and things he doesn't understand in the May issue of GQ.
In her latest ad campaign for H&M, Beyonce treats her fans to a preview of her song "Standing In The Sun" written by Sia and Greg Kurstin.
While starring as "Mrs. Carter" in the Jonas Akerlund-directed video, Bey models several bikinis as her banging bronzed bod get kissed by the sunlight. Grab your fedoras and bikinis because it's about to get fabulously tropical.
Watch the new commerical here:
Beyonce posed with Salma Hayek (who partnered with her and Gucci for the "Chime For Change" Global Initiative) backstage at her Paris concert last night.
And on magazine racks.....
Controversial rapper A$AP Rocky, who's currently trekking it with Rihanna on her Diamonds World Tour, modeled a few choice pieces for summer 2013 in the May issue of GQ. The cocky fashion divo rapper, who commonly describes himself as "pretty", told the mag, "I wanted to model when I was younger. I was always into clothes and shit."
He also gave an arrogant shout-out to menswear blogs who post pictures of him. "I'm the man on those things. I don't really look at them. Well, I guess I do, but only when I'm looking at myself. I inspire me."
We wonder if he was offended that the stylist for the shoot paired him with a brown skinned girl wearing pinkish red lipstick. You know how A$AP feels about the brown girls and those color lipsticks.
Also, he gave a charming interview to GQ where he said anytime he doesn't understand something in life, his philosophy is to just say "F*ck It." Let's all follow him on Twitter and Instagram so we can stay inspired. But all jokes aside, we're loving A$AP's music. Dude is talented.

Rapper Lil' Scrappy was freed from jail yesterday and he and his fiance Erica Dixon are thanking the heavens. Get the deets on his release inside and find out about married rapper Layzie Bone and his baby mama drama.
It looks like the gods obeyed the words (and T-shirt) of "The Queen Of The South" Mama Dee and FREED Scrappy yesterday! We told you earlier that Scrappy turned himself in two days ago based on a warrant issued for his arrest over some cold pee.
Now, Scrappy says that the warrant was bogus and a judge granted his lawyer's motion to have the warrant recalled. But Scrappy isn't out of the woods just yet. He'll have to show up in court on May 16 to deal with this and his other legal issues.
In the meantime, his fiance Erica Dixon praised God for his release.....
And so did Scrappy....
Let's just "pray" he keeps his urine clean and warm this time around.
And in baby mama drama news.....
A woman has filed a paternity suit claiming that the very-married rapper Layzie Bone of Bone-Thugs-N-Harmony is the father of her one-and-a-half year old child. The plaintiff told TMZ that she filed the suit in October of 2012 and Layzie Bone hasn't responded at all!
And since his Layzie self has not responded to the suit, the court could potentially enter a default judgement and declare him the father! SMH. Either way, it's best he AND his wife make a decision about how their going to handle this situation because penalties and fines are continuing to mount!

Of course.....she'll still alllow fans to keep their cell phones. #truediva

Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon had a pajama party with Dem Babies recently. See the adorable photos inside and find out about an "alleged" plot to replace Mariah on "American Idol" with Jennifer Lopez.
Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon tweeted some adorable pics from their recent pajama party with their twins Monroe and Moroccan. The family wore matching blue and pink pajama sets and spent the evening eating popcorn and watching movies. Mariah tweeted , "Hurry up Daddy!" (Ms Monroe, Roc Starr & Mommy Mimi wait patiently watching Shrek Box Set)
And proving that the apple doesn't fall far from the tree, Mariah tweeted about Monroe's love of nice shoes, "Ms. Monroe raids mommy's shoe closet, slippers by agent provocateur (not yet 2 years old!)"
But outside of the safety her home provides, Mariah Carey and her job as a judge on "American Idol" has reportedly been under attack due to a secret plot by the show's producers to replace her with former "AI" judge Jennifer Lopez. According to a scandalous article by The Hollywood Reporter, sources told THR that Idol producers hoped for a mid-season rating jaunt by replacing Mimi with J Lo.
The plot was reportedly foiled when Mimi's high powered legal team threatened to sue if she was replaced. Now that the -ish has hit the fan, denials are coming from everywhere. A Fox spokeswoman told THR "This is just another ridiculous Idol judge rumor, likely started by talks of Jennifer performing on the finale." Meanwhile, "AI" producer Nigel Lythgoe told THR: "I have not been included in any conversation regarding replacing Mariah with Jen this season."
So for now....Mimi is safe. But do you think she's a good judge on "AI"?
