Hip-hop titan Kanye West, who is gearing up to release his new single "All Day", is featured on the August 2014 issue of GQ magazine, and as usual, the fashion designer raises a few eyebrows with his strong opinions and some bold statements.

In the interview, the 37-year-old rapper dishes on his extravagant wedding to Kim Kardashian, his thoughts on Beyoncé and Jay Z deciding not to attend, who he thinks is the hip-hop's top man and wanting to reeducate society on what a celebrity is. Read a few excerpts beneath:

On Hip-Hop's Most Popular Man:
Currently that spot is taken. Let's be honest. He [Drake] got last summer. And I'd never given it up till last summer."

On Re-Educating What A Celebrity Is:
"I'm here to fight for the re-education of what celebrity is. To say, "Yes, we are celebrities, but yes, we're also innovators, we're also inventors, we're also thoughtful.'"

On His Wedding To Kim Kardashian:
"Kim is this girl who f--king turns me on. I love her. This is who I want to be next to and be around. And then people would try to say, 'Well, you know, if you're a musician, you should be with a musician, and if you want to design, you need to be with a girl from the design world.' I don't give a f--k about people's opinions."

On Beyoncé and Jay Z Not Attending His Nupitals:
"All that, I wouldn't even speak on. It doesn't even matter to me whatsoever, who would show up. Because the most important person to show up there, to me, was Kim. That's all that matters to me. I had to fight for that for 7 years. But the fact that these other people showed up that are from different worlds but have done such dynamic things - they're all, in a way, equal to what Kim has done in TV or what I had done in music."

Halle Berry: The 10 Best Acting Performances Of Her Career

7/09/2014 0
Halle Berry

Halle Berry has been praised for both her beauty and talent by landing endorsement deals and winning countless awards including her profession's top acting prize in 2002, and as she returns to television tonight with her new series 'Extant', we look back at the 10 Best Performances of her envied career. Peep our choices and sound off with your own in the comments beneath:

Border photo border.png

10. Losing Isaiah: Released by Paramount in 1995, this film was originally intended for television not the big screen, which explains why its script played out like a made for television movie, but despite a somewhat disappointing ending, there are two top-notch performances given by Jessica Lange and Berry here.

The film depicts a controversial court battle between a young boy's natural and adoptive mother, and not only does it showcase Berry's ability to hold her own against one of the most-acclaimed actresses, but it shows her ability to make you feel and maybe even root for a character that initially made your stomach turn.

Border photo border.png

09. Cloud Atlas: Berry tackled six different characters for the Wachowskis' and Tom Tykwer's 2012 adaptation of the David Mitchell novel including a white Jewish woman, a Asian man and a enslaved tribeswoman.

The film flopped at the box-office, recouping less than one-third of its $100 million budget, and while the response from critics was more positive, the concept escaped most of the general public. Very few people understood it. Even fewer actually liked it or went to see it. I happened to do both and those people are unfortunately missing out on a visual masterpiece that filmmakers will be dissecting and talking about for years to come, as well as, some performances displaying the versatility of the film's actors (Berry included).

Border photo border.png

08. Boomerang: Standing as one of the best romantic comedies of the nineties and a undeniable classic in the black community, Berry was not the leading lady here, but she did unearth a performance that had its share of scene-stealing moments including that classic "love should've brought your a** home last night" line.

Starring as Angela opposite Eddie Murphy, she played the down-to-earth girl in a love triangle for Marcus Graham's heart with the glamorous executive (played by Robin Given), and although it has its share of cliche moments, this romantic comedy feels genuine and contains some enjoyable performances.

Border photo border.png

07. Bullworth: Released to theaters in May 1998, Berry co-stars opposite Warren Beatty, who also wrote and directed the screenplay, in this film about a straightforward politician that puts a hit out on himself.

The role stood as another chance for Berry to work with a master in her field and allowed herself to challenge herself by playing a street-smart character that had both beauty and brains. The real star here is Beatty, but Berry gives Robin a run for his money as one hell of a sidekick.

Border photo border.png

06. Frankie & Alice: Finally released earlier this year, the film about dissociative identity disorder was a passion project of Berry's that initially found her around 1998. Its long and hard road to finally make it to the big screen is hardly surprising, given the subject matter is a tough sale and the film's script reads more like an original Lifetime movie than a major motion picture.

Still, despite those setback, Berry lifts the material beyond its limitation and unearths a mesmerizing performance that captivates you from the moment she hits the screen dancing in cage. Her innate ability to switch characters (or personalities) at the drop of hat is so fluid that if you blink you miss it, and is is that ability that earned her a NAACP Image Award and a Golden Globe nomination. If only the actual film was as good as her performance in it.

Border photo border.png

05. Jungle Fever: This Spike Lee-directed film was the launching pad for Berry's film career and was a role that she really had fight for. Berry was initially offered the role of Wesley Snipes' wife, but asked to audition for the role of Vivian, a foul-mouth crackhead, instead.

Lee denied her request saying she was too beautiful and put together to play the part, but after washing off all of her make-up off and really getting to character, Berry eventually convinced the director that she was a good fit for Vivian. To show her commitment to the part, she visited a real crack den and refused to shower for days, and although the role was small, it was a memorable one.

Border photo border.png

04. Things We Lost In the Fire: Released in 2007, this film showcases another side of Berry as she speaks volumes without ever lashing out or raising her voice.

It is clear early on that the meatiest role belongs to her co-star Benicio Del Toro, and he is brilliant here, but through the quiet and subtle moments Berry shines and captures the roller-coaster ride that her character experiences amidst the loss of her husband and trying to raise their two kids with pure skill. She isn't just good here, she's great and the performance should have resulted in her second Academy Award nomination. Unfortunately, its disappointing performance at the box office upon its release and quiet nature derailed those hopes from being a reality.

Border photo border.png

03. Their Eyes Were Watching God: Based on the Zora Neale Hurston classic and produced by Oprah Winfrey for ABC, Berry delivers a beautiful and superb performance as Janie, a woman on a journey to self-discovery.

Like most human beings, Janie is on a path to find love and to fully live her life, and though her journey includes some misfires and a string of bad choices (or husbands), she eventually experiences both of those things. Unfortunately, the ending is still not a happy one, something that Berry knows all too well and her portrayal of Janie is one of the most honest, delicate and vulnerable performances that she has ever given. Simply stunning!

Border photo border.png

02. Monster's Ball: This is the performance that placed Berry in the history books when she became the first African-American woman to win an Academy Award for Best Actress. However, neither her role in the controversial film or her win have escaped criticism.

While critics and the majority of her peers have praised her performance in the film, some fans and other actresses (Angela Bassett) didn't quite understand the meaning of that provocative sex scene and the fact that it had nothing to do with sex. It was definitely a risky move for Berry. One that took real guts and could have easily backfired, but it is these type of chess moves that have always made Berry standout from other black actresses. She has a different understanding of the source material than a typical black actress would, realizing their is a distinct separation between who she is and the character she plays, as well as, understanding the importance of the much-talked about scene and that it would stand as a lesser film without it.

It is a role that allow her to run through an array of different emotions and she conquers them all brilliantly, and before you reach the halfway mark, it is not hard to see why she fought to play the role or why she reigned supreme over Sissy Spacek at the 74th Academy Awards.

Border photo border.png

01. Introducing Dorothy Dandridge: If there is a perfect performance on Berry's resume, this is undoubtedly it. The actress physically and emotionally embodied the spirit of Dandridge so immensely that you could barely tell the two stars apart. Dandridge, much like Berry, was a native of Cleveland, Ohio with dreams of stardom in society that didn't view her as being equal to her white female peers. She had enough talent and beauty to captivate a room, but struggled to find the right partner in her personal life.

It was those startling similarities and the fact that Berry was still trying to prove that she was more than just a pretty face that helped her unleash a dazzling performance, which earned her a Golden Globe, Emmy, Screen Actors Guild and NAACP Image Award.  The film was also critically-acclaimed, winning an additional 4 Emmys.

LaLa Anthony Sparkles On Fourth Cover Of 'Latina' Magazine

LaLa Anthony : Latina (August 2014) photo Lala-Anthony-Latina-Magazine.jpeg

Gracing the publication for the fourth time, LaLa Anthony shines on the August cover of Latina magazine, where she talks about the possibility of having another child, her successful of her book 'The Love Playbook' and her definition of a perfect night for her family.

The 'Think Like A Man Too' actress is currently riding high on the success of her hit sequel with Kevin Hart, her reality show 'LaLa's Full Court Life' being in the midst of its fifth season and the recent second season renewal of her STARZ series, 'Power'. Read excerpts beneath:

On Being Ready To Have Another Child:
"I do start feeling bad because [my son, Kiyan, 7, will] ask about a baby [sibling] and I feel a little selfish. If I did have another child, the reason would be that I wouldn’t want my son to be alone in the world as an only child. But we’ll see."

On the Reaction to Her First Book, 'The Love Playbook':
"Almost every day I get handfuls of people coming up to me and telling me, ‘Your book changed my life. You gave me confidence to leave an abusive relationship and believe in myself.’ To me that’s the true success, not necessarily being number one."

On Her Fashion Line, 5th & Mercer: "I know what works on Latinas, black women and curvy women. But it’s great that a website like ShopBop that isn’t used to having that kind of consumer—they’re used to stopping at a six or an eight—to push them to go up to a fourteen and understand our kind of woman."

On Designing Clothes To Flatter Latinas:
"I always notice my quickest-selling sizes are the fourteens, the twelves and the tens. I just won a little disagreement to increase the sizes with the website ShopBop. They were only going from zero to eight and I’m like, ‘No, we come in all sizes, we have to increase the sizes.’ So now they go from zero to fourteen and I wish they would go even higher."

On How Her Mom Helps Her Be A Better Parent:
"I always go to my mom for advice. Even when I went through crazy phases in my life, she allowed me to be me and never said, ‘You shouldn’t be doing that!’ She’d just give me the pros and cons and allowed me to make my own decisions. I hope I am my son’s best friend, and I want him to feel like he can come talk to me about anything—good or bad, because that’s what I used to do with my mom. If they can’t talk to you, that’s when they go to outside influences and they might make wrong choices."
