Last Night in NYC, in the heart of NYC’s famous Meat Packing District, brown bombshell Kelly Rowland,famed choreographer/director Frank Gatson Jr., and BET President of Music Programming Stephen G Hill celebrated the upcoming premiere of Kelly and Frank’s new docu-series Chasing Destiny.

Kelly looked relaxed and comfortable in a floral top paired with black ripped jeans from Frame Denim as she was out in these NYC streets promoting the show. Guests enjoyed a full open bar and delicious hors d’oeuvres while dancing the night away and flicking it up at the photo-booth.

Notable guest in attendance BET Next In Class winner, our very own FLY Guy Rae Holliday, Fly Guy Gabriel Willams, beauty and lifestyle writer Ty Alexander,5x Emmy nominated TV Host  Kela Walker, and recording artist Luvaboy TJ.

Kelly and Frank shared a small preview of the show which premieres tonight after Black Girls Rock on BET. From what we saw we will definitely be in for an entertaining ride as the two search for amazing talent to assemble the next best girl group.

It was definitely a FLY event and we are so looking forward to watching the show. Chasing Destiny premieres tonight at 10:30pm/9:30c on BET. Hit the gallery below to see more exclusive photos from the night.

On The Gram: The Internet Casts Stacey Dash Back To The Fire From Which She Came With Memes!

Stacey Dash

If Stacey Dash thought she was going to get away, unscathed from her ridiculous comments she was sadly mistaken. The internet plays no games when you say something that’s just outright stupid. The clueless actress and yes the pun is indeed intended, spoke on Jada Pinkett-Smith and Spike Lee’s decision to skip The Oscars due to the outrage of the awards show lack of diversity. What really ruffled everyone’s feathers was when Dash said that Black History Month, BET and The Image Awards are forms of segregation.

BET and Stephen Hill quickly snapped back at Dash on Instagram:

Thus opening the flood gates to the well deserved slander that came her way. Peep the hilarious memes directed towards Dash in the gallery below.
