Steve Harvey’s racist comments… Idris Elba wants to be your Valentine… “50 Shades Darker” soundtrack… Soulja Boy’s house robbed… and Selena Gomez spotted kissing The Weeknd
Steve Harvey is going to federal court to defend himself over accusations that he made racist comments about white people during his 90s standup routines, but now this… On his talk show Friday, Steve had some not-so-nice things to say about Asian men. During the show, he showed this book from 2002 called How to Date a White Woman: A Practical Guide for Asian Men. And Steve asked the audience, “Excuse me, do you like Asian men? No, thank you.” Then he said if there was a book titled How to Date a Black Woman: A Practical Guide for Asian Men, it would be “one page.” Then he asked again, “You like Asian men? I don’t even like Chinese food. It don’t stay with you no time… I don’t eat what I can’t pronounce.” Well, many people — including me who happens to have an extremely handsome boyfriend who is half Filipino — didn’t find that too funny. Steve got a lot of backlash on social media, but he hasn’t made any comment yet.
If you have no Valentine this year and you’d like a shot at a date with a dreamy British movie star, this is for you! Idris Elba wants to be your Valentine! All you have to do is go to Omaze.com/Idris and make a $10 donation, which will give you 100 chances to win a Valentine’s date with Idris. For every $10, you get another hundred chances. Idris promises, “We’ll get things started off with cocktails or perhaps champagne. And once we’re feeling comfortable, we can order whatever your heart desires: Maybe some truffles, perhaps some steak, pepper soup and fufu. That’s an African dish. … And for dessert, you can have whatever you want and I mean, whatever you want.” Oh, Idris!! Of course, this is all for charity. The proceeds benefit W.E. Can Lead, an initiative dedicated to ensuring schoolgirls in Sierra Leone receive equal access to education.
The trailer is out for the upcoming “50 Shades Darker” movie and we’re digging Taylor Swift and Zayn Malik’s duet from the soundtrack. But are you ready for a duet from Nick Jonas and Nicki Minaj? Nick tweeted a photo of the movie’s entire soundtrack and it includes his song with Nicki called “Bom Bidi Bom.” He captioned it, “I know many babies will be made to this soundtrack.” Halsey and Tove Lo are both releasing their songs from the soundtrack on Friday. Other artists on the soundtrack include John Legend and Sia.

Soulja Boy’s out there trying to train for a boxing match with Chris Brown and somebody goes and burglarizes his home! A man broke down the door to Soulja’s house in the Hollywood Hills early Tuesday morning and took about $10K in cash and $12K in jewelry. But the whole place is covered in security cameras so they do have a picture of this guy. Back to the fight, though. One professional oddsmaker says he doubts it’s ever going to happen. Jim Murphy of SportsBettingExperts.com says it all boils down to money. He said, “The Money Team’s accountants will realize that this is an event that no one — including their fans — will pay to watch on PPV, and that it’s just a money-losing proposition.” Meantime, rival betting site Bovada.com has Chris as the 5-to-8 favorite, with Soulja Boy at 5-to-4.
It looks like The Weeknd is REALLY over Bella Hadid and Selena Gomez is ready to give love another. The two of them were photographed smooching in the parking lot outside a restaurant in Santa Monica Tuesday. And Selena is looking right at the camera so they’re not trying to hide anything. Although they arrived in separate cars, they both got into The Weeknd’s car and apparently headed back to her place. This is not sitting well with Bella, who unfollowed Selena on Instagram. As for now, Selena still follows Bella…and Bella still follows The Weeknd…
