The announcement comes after Cardi B dropped out last month. The new mom, who welcomed daughter Kulture Kiari Cephus on July 10, revealed that she’s not “mentally and physically” ready to hit the road. “I thought that after giving birth to my daughter that 6 weeks would be enough time for me to recover mentally and physically,” she explained. “I also thought that I’d be able to bring her with me on tour, but I think I underestimated this whole mommy thing.”

Produced by Live Nation, the “24K Magic World Tour” launched in March 2017 and has sold out stadiums and arenas across North America, Latin America, Europe, and the U.K. The global outing has sold 2 million tickets worldwide and amassed over $200 million in sales across 155 dates.

The final leg of the “24K Magic World Tour” kicks off Sept. 7 in Denver and wraps with a trio of homecoming performances at Aloha Stadium in Honolulu, Hawaii on Nov. 8, 10, and 11.

Danity Kane Announces DK3 Reunion Tour

Breakup to makeup. Following a tumultuous past, the ladies of Danity Kane are reuniting for a tour.

Three of the five original members, Dawn Richard, Aubrey O’Day, and Shannon Bex, will hit the road on “The Universe Is Undefeated Tour” in September. The 16-date trek, which includes shows in New York, Chicago, and Los Angeles, marks the first time in four years that the trio has performed together.

var Tynt=Tynt||[];Tynt.cmd=Tynt.cmd||[];
Tynt.cmd.push({publisherId:’c9kzpIBM0r6ik2aKlId8sQ’,
fn:function(){Tynt.ads.display(this.publisherId,’infeed’,

The news follows the group’s breakup in 2014 after a studio altercation. Aubrey and Shannon went on to form Dumblonde while Dawn pursued a solo career.

“We have been through a journey of a lot of ups and downs, but on any journey it requires the people involved to not be willing to let go of each other and that’s what we’re on so, we’re super grateful to be back in each other’s lives,” Aubrey tells E! News. “To have survived the last round and truly come together as sisters and do it for ourselves and also for the fans.”

“The conversations started because I think Aubrey and I wanted to touch base cause we hadn’t in a long time and I think we both had feelings of feeling like we needed to have that conversation,” adds Dawn. “We’re sisters at the end of the day and I think if you go through life you still remember like I really want a relationship with these girls even though you go through things, you really want that comradery and so Aubrey and I had a great conversation.”

The tour will feature a performance from Dumblonde as well as a solo set from Dawn. It will commence with the three of them performing Danity Kane’s biggest hits like “Show Stopper” and “Damaged.”

“We’re actually doing a combination of our solo project which is Dumblonde, we have our second album coming out soon, so we’re doing a combination of our album,” says Aubrey. “Dawn is going to be doing her solo performances from her solo album and then together we’re going to come back together, DK3, and also be performing Danity Kane songs that all the fans love. So you’re getting the best of all of our worlds, solo worlds and group worlds.”

A new album could also be in the works. Dawn, Aubrey, and Shannon released their album DK3 as a trio in October 2014.

“You never know,” Aubrey said when asked about new music. “They’d have to come to the show, but there will be new performances on the show.”

Tickets for “The Universe Is Undefeated Tour” are on sale now in select cities.

Teyana Taylor Covers Playboy

Teyana Taylor is heating up the pages of Playboy.

The R&B siren covers the magazine’s September issue. But instead of disrobing, the 27-year-old shows off her fiery red hair and six-pack abs poolside at a Los Angeles mansion in the smoldering shoot, photographed by Ben Watts.

“I’ve had this six-pack since I was, like, six,” says Taylor, who flaunts her curvy figure in a bikini. “I was like a Ninja Turtle.”

The mother of one, who released her sophomore album K.T.S.E. in June, also speaks about her journey and constant grind. “Patience has been my biggest challenge. There’s times where I’d just be laying in bed, crying,” she says. “I’d been doing this for so many years and it was just not happening.”

But Junie, her two-year-old daughter with Iman Shumpert, helped her through tough times. “She’d be like, ‘Mommy, what’s wrong? Don’t cry.’ And I’m like, ‘You right. I’m happy. I got you. I have my wonderful husband. Life could be much worse.’”

In the issue, she also opens up about staying true to herself. “I’m not difficult; I’m just not willing to belittle myself—to settle,” she explains. “I’m going to have self-respect. I’m going to be a strong woman all across the board whether you like it or not. Maybe that’s why it took me so long to get where I wanted to be. I was never willing to be what someone else wanted.”

Taylor, who is currently on tour with Jeremih, can also be seen in the upcoming Netflix film The After Party. “Once this music is out, I might really consider that I’ve done damn near everything I’ve ever wanted to do.”

Nicki Minaj & Funkmaster Flex End Feud

We Good

Nicki Minaj and Funkmaster Flex have not seen eye-to-eye for quite sometime. Last night, Nicki visited Hot 97 where the two reconciled in person. During their interview, they put their differences aside to discuss her Queen album, the rap game, friendship with Drake, Meek Mill and much more.

Over the weekend, Minaj gave Flex the green light to premiere her unreleased track with Nas, “Sorry.”
