Vacations are always fun at Disney World. Angela Bassett, Courtney Vance and the kids tell fans why they love the theme park so much. “I’ve been coming to Disney World since I was about fourteen because I grew up in Florida,” says Angela. “So I’m so happy to be able to share that with my family. There’s something for everyone.” Although they didn’t grow up in the Sunshine State like mom, Bronwyn and Slater have enjoyed the adventure that is Disney World. “My favorite thing at Disney World is getting on all the rides and being scared,” shares Slater. “I love Tea Cups,” adds Bronwyn. Outside of having immeasurable fun with the kids, Courtney and Angela like to spend a bit of grown up time at the restaurants. “When we have a bit of time on our own here at Disney World, outside of the children, we like to go to the various restaurants,” says Courtney. The actor adds, “I love coming here.”

Ray Edwards is looking summertime fine! For The Body Issue of Kontrol Magazine, Atlanta Falcons Player Ray Edwards decided to show readers another side of him.

Most men would be ecstatic to break a world record in a lifetime. Idris Elba just broke his second in less than three months. The 42-year-old has become the first ever male to appear solo on the cover of Maxim Magazine 'We've never in US Maxim history had a man on the cover solo,' editor-in-chief Kate Lanphear told Racked on Tuesday. 'This is the very first time, and there was no one else in the world more badass than Idris.' Although men have appeared on flip covers and have also starred alongside women throughout the mag's 20 year history, a guy has never appeared on his own until this September's issue. Under the fitting headline 'Man Up', it describes its cover star as an 'actor, musician, racecar driver and all-around badass'. The man himself looks smoldering in a heavy black and grey animal-print jacket, which matches his trademark salt and pepper beard. 'For me, he was really the perfect embodiment of what I think the new Maximman is,' Lanphear continued. 'He's multi-dimensional, he's complex, he's sophisticated, but he's down to earth.

Annalise is such a flawed heroine, obviously it makes it interesting for an actress to play–but why do you think there’s still such rooting value for her? Well I’m happy that you say that, but I just felt like in the midst of this fiction–which it is, it’s fiction, it’s a soap opera, it’s salacious, it’s tantalizing and all that–I felt like there should be something in each episode for women to look at and feel like it was familiar. To feel like Annalise is familiar. Taking her wig off, me not being a Size 2, me being obviously 49. I always say I hold it up for the regular people out there. There’s still something very human in each episode, and when I say “human,” I mean flawed. Things that we probably do in private that we don’t want anyone else to see. But when we see it in actors and when we see it onscreen, it makes us feel less alone. And I felt like which each episode I tried to at least achieve that in the midst of this kind of pop fiction. And I think that’s why people root for her. Read more of the story in www.thewrap.com

Hip-hop newcomer Jidenna and his debut solo single “Classic Man” have already begun summer-radio domination, and with good reason. The longtime collaborator of Janelle Monae and one-fifth of her record label, Wondaland, has a musical palette that is as crisp as the three-piece suits you will usually find him wearing. A self-dubbed dandy and neighborhood man, Jidenna is seamlessly translating old-school swank into the language of 2015, creating a music video that addresses a desperate need for community-building in the wake of rampant police brutality.
