  2. Jay-Z admits that fixing his relationship with Beyoncé was harder than growing up in the Marcy projects and being shot at:

    “We had to go to a point where it was like, ‘Tear this down and let’s start from the beginning.’ It’s hard. Remember, I’m from Marcy Projects. [Been] shot at. Nothing is harder than this. By far, I’m telling you, it’s the hardest thing I’ve ever done. Most humans, us, we’re not willing to put ourselves through that. Most people give up.”

  3. Whoopi Goldberg reads Deray McKesson for assumption about 'Planet of the Apes' movie:

    "DeRay, you need to go back and watch the 1968 original and check out what the apes were wearing. This has nothing to do with you. This was a movie about what happens when mankind doesn't pay attention to environment, to how we treat animals and each other... Get over yourself!"

I’m gonna speak on everything that's going on. I'm gonna give my opinion. I'm gonna give facts. Why?

  5. Idris Elba doesn’t think he’s going to remarry:

  6. Jesse Williams speaks out on his failed marriage:

    "I was in a relationship 13 years, 13 real years, not five years, not seven years — 13 years. All of a sudden, motherf**kers are writing thinkpieces that I somehow threw [away] a 13-year relationship. Like, the most painful experience I've had in my life, like, with a person I've loved with all of my heart — that I threw a person and my family in the trash because a girl I work with is cute."

    “If you’re going to say you’re honoring a man’s legacy, then honor his legacy. And if you don’t have the story, FALL BACK until you do.”

  8. Jayson Williams talks about life after limo driver shooting:

    “I take accountability for that. If you go to movies, you see a gun go off, you see something all the time that knocks you to your feet. I accidentally took somebody’s life and for the rest of [my] life [I] have to live with that.”

  9. Blac Chyna responds to those who say she’s riding the Kardashians’ coat tails:

    "I was Blac Chyna before I was with Rob."

  10. Wendy Williams addresses rumor that Kim Kardashian is mad at her about her coverage of her brother’s drama with Blac Chyna:

    "Kim, don't be mad at me. We have to call a spade a spade."

  11. Dr. Dre apologizes for brutally attacking Dee Barnes:

    "Any man that puts his hands on a female is a f**king idiot. He's out of his f**king mind, and I was out of my f**king mind at the time. I f**ked up, I paid for it, I'm sorry for it and I apologize for it."
