Bernice Burgos and Nick Cannon were photographed by the paparazzi going out to dinner together, and now people are wondering if T.I.’s alleged ex side-chick and Mariah Carey’s former husband are dating. The woman was the one to address the rumors, and it’s apparently not what you think.
According to her, their meeting at Nobu in Malibu was not for fun but for business.
At least that is what she said in the comment section of The Shade Room account, which shared the pics.
That being said, Bernice did not go into any detail as to what kind of project they are collabing on.
However, it totally makes sense that so many fans just assumed there is a romance going on between the two considering that the hotspot where they met is a very popular place for celebrities to go on dates.
While there was no PDA between them, Bernice and Nick did, coincidentally or not, wear pretty much the same thing – yellow T-shirts and jeans.
Meanwhile, other reports previously stated that Bernice is still hung up on T.I. and seeing him and Tiny making it work really broke her heart.
HollywoodLife reported via an insider that ‘When Bernice saw online he was dancing and kissing Tiny this past weekend, it really stung.’
Another source told the outlet about Nick’s own love life as well, claiming that Mariah Carrey’s weight loss and increased confidence are changes he has noticed.
‘Now that she has her groove back, Nick is missing her like never before and thinks she is a total MILF.’
Lin-Manuel Miranda and Jimmy Fallon collaborated on an Instagram video they call ‘Two Goats in a Boat.’ The video begins with Fallon shaving a goatee and then joking that he wants someone to share it with…and that’s where Lin came in BroadwayWorld.com Featured Content
Prince Harry and bride-to-be Meghan Markle were matching in navy blue at Queen Elizabeth’s star-studded birthday concert Saturday night — and people on social media took notice.
Markle wore a navy Stella McCartney caped dress with matching navy suede heels by Manolo Blahnik and carried a clutch by Naeem Khan. Prince Harry wore a smart navy blue suit. The two stepped out together for this event a little more than a month out from the royal wedding on May 19.
The event was attended by most of the royal family — with one exception being Kate Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge, who is expecting her third child on Monday — and members of the public who could snag a ticket. (For those who couldn’t, the concert was broadcast live on BBC One and BBC Radio 2.)
The lineup fit for Her Majesty included Sting and Shaggy (who recently released an album together), Kylie Minogue, Sir Tom Jones, Shawn Mendes, Ladysmith Black Mambazo, the BBC Concert Orchestra, and more.
The event concluded with Queen Elizabeth acknowledging the crowd with a wave, but not before she gave a coy smile (and maybe an eye roll?) during a speech made by her son Prince Charles after he addressed her as “Your Majesty” and then “Mummy.”
Final Fantasy games never skimp on their music. Hundreds of tracks will be shipped with a game — heck, even an expansion — all ranging from rock to classical.
Anyone who’s played Final Fantasy XIV, or attended a Square Enix concert, is familiar with the work of Masayoshi Soken. He’s been composing for the company since feel/Go Dream: Yuna & Tidus, and is the musical master behind FFXIV and all its expansions.
FANDOM got the chance to ask the longtime Final Fantasy composer and sound director some questions about making music that lasts for MMOs, technical challenges, and the Eastern influence of the Stormblood expansion.
FANDOM: What’s technically involved in weaving together tracks that have a more “combative” version of them, and changing back and forth according to the player’s situation?
Masayoshi Soken: What we place the most emphasis on when making the sound for FFXIV is the player’s gaming experience. The player’s mental state will obviously be quite different when they are in battle to when they are just walking around doing nothing, even if they happen to be in the same area.
Accordingly, creating different tracks for different situations will enhance that overall experience and make it more exciting. If we need sound to create that effect then we have no choice but to do our best and make it.
We also make frequent use of the Square Enix sound department’s unique technical knowhow in order to ensure that music transitions smoothly and those changes do not jar with the listener.
It is really exciting to be working in such an environment where technology and artistry come together to create new experiences for people.
MMOs are a style of game that people will log into every day for a long time. How does that factor in when designing the music? Are there techniques you use that help songs stand the test of time, and become memorable?
In MMORPGs from a little while ago, the time that players spent in a single area was often very long, but in modern ones the player will pick and choose what they want to play from a wide variety of different content.
In order to create the sound for a modern style MMO like this in a way that players will not get bored of, I strive to provide different music that fits with different situations and the player’s different psychological states.
This also links to what I said before, but in order to make something that sticks in a player’s memory, I think that you need to make clever use of the technology to incorporate the art, combining the graphics, sound and game experience together in an exciting way.
If you had to pick one track that you think best captures the character or place it’s attached to, what would it be?
For the exploration sections I would say it was perhaps “Azys Lla” for Heavensward and “Yanxia” for Stormblood? Stormblood has a very oriental taste overall, but I feel that even in that area, it is Yanxia that has the strongest sense of that far eastern atmosphere.
I think that I succeeded in portraying the image I was looking for very well in this track. Looking at the battle music I would perhaps point to the Ultima battle track from A Realm Reborn and Shinryu from Stormblood! Hmm, that is way more than one track isn’t it! Sorry about that!
To what extent do you think franchises like Final Fantasy and its live orchestra performances are getting younger people into classical music?
I really don’t think about wanting people to have a deeper understanding of classical music or anything like that (Laughs)! I work hard so people can enjoy games more, so if people have the time to take an interest in classical music then I would probably rather they used it to play more good games!
Having said that, as a sound creator I would obviously be overjoyed to hear that someone had learned how great classical music can be or how cool rock is from listening to something I have created.
Was there musically anything specific that you focused on in Stormblood? Any particular goal or theme you wanted to achieve in that expansion?
I only really thought about creating sound that fitted with the gameplay experience, so there was no special objective or anything. I just followed my inspiration and came up with whatever ideas that I could.
However, Stormblood did have the specific characteristic of an oriental theme, so I strived to express that as well as possible. Also, compared to ARR and Heavensward, Stormblood’s music uses a more compact range of instruments.
That means that the melodies tend to come to the fore a lot more. I limited the number of instruments for the exploration sections in particular and Yanxia was essentially just done with a harp and kokyu.
Epic fail at retail: Black Friday price matching bans!
Price matching sounds great, right?
But there’s a dirty little secret here: A lot of the big guys suspend their price matching policies from around Thanksgiving until Cyber Monday or beyond.
They’re trying to avoid matching rock-bottom prices from competitors during the highly promotional Black Friday weekend.
Here are some retailers we’ve found with fine print that will temporarily kill your deal-finding mojo in this way.
So be careful out there when you’re shopping!
The nation’s largest retailer is shutting down price matching for the opening salvo of the holiday season.
Wal-Mart’s policy reads, “No price matches to other retailers for prices shown from Thanksgiving Day through Cyber-Monday.”
The Red Retailer’s website notes that, “Price matches and adjustments to competitors will not be allowed for prices from Thanksgiving Day through the entire week after Thanksgiving (11/23/2017 – 12/2/2017).”
Toys R Us
The ailing toy store won’t match “any competitor’s advertised store or online pricing for Thanksgiving through Cyber Monday,” according to its own website.
The electronics retailer’s Price Match Guarantee won’t cover any “items for sale Thanksgiving Day through the Monday after Thanksgiving, whether offered by Best Buy or a competitor.”
“Holiday sales offers including during Black Friday and Cyber Monday (Office Depot, OfficeMax or any eligible retailer) are also excluded” from the office-supply store’s usual price matching policy.

Katy Perry took the crop top trend to the red carpet when she stepped out Tuesday night for the 2014 Australian Record Industry Association Awards in Sydney.
Perry’s two-piece ensemble, created by Australian designer Jaime Lee, featured a belly-baring halter top and a long, see-through pencil skirt adorned with sequined flowers. She paired the outfit with purple pumps and a head wrap.
“No longer will I use straws in my chocolate milk. I’ll use Tim Tams!” she said, per the Guardian. “No longer will I put butter on bread, I’ll use Vegemite. No longer will I eat chicken, I’ll eat kangaroo. Actually that’s disgusting. Why do guys you eat something that’s on your national emblem?”
