The Cast Of Drumline: A New Beat Plays Musical Chairs Truth Or Dare

Three stars of Drumline: A New Beat faced off against each other this morning in a down and dirty game of “Truth or Dare Musical Chairs” on Big Morning Buzz Live. Not familiar with the game? It’s a mashup that involves the odd man out in musical chairs to play truth or dare with Nick Lachey. The end result? The actors had to twirl turkey drumsticks, kiss co-host Michelle Buteau and let’s not even talk about the hulu hoop…situation.

Drumline: A New Beat premieres Monday, October 27 at 9PM ET/PT on VH1.

Flashback To This Classic Love & Hip Hop Fight That Peacemaker Teairra Mari Tried To Break Up

Once again, we’d like to whisk you away to a magical time when Teairra Mari was the voice of reason on Love & Hip Hop and was the peacemaker of the bunch. In this classic clip, we look back on one of the most brutal fights in LHH history, between Kimbella and Erica Mena, who taught us that hair and fingernails are indeed weapons. Teairra attempts to break them up, but neither she, nor Mona Scott-Young, nor a half dozen security guards and producers can pull these women away from one another. It’s shocking, it’s mesmerizing, and it was the moment that made Erica Mena a star.

The Pranks Continue… T.I. Pulls A Fast One On Footaction Customers

We know T.I. is a master of pranks — he’s spent four seasons of Family Hustle showing us how he regularly tries to mess with his own family (see: the caramel apple/onion incident and the toothpaste on the Oreo prank), but in this hilarious clip, he has WAY too much fun pulling one over on five guys who think they’re being treated to a shopping spree and styling session at Footaction with the leader of the Hustle Gang. This man gets way to much glee seeing other people squirm! Check it out.

In this interview, when asked if she thinks Erica Mena and Bow Wow‘s engagement is just for TV, she can’t even look up from her phone to offer her take: “Of course.” And her advice for what Cyn should do now that she’s single? “Go to Chipotle.”

Did Soulja Boy Just Out Masika And Berg As A Couple?

Berg is not into Hazel, we get that. But apparently he’s into a lot of other women, including Masika, if you believe Soulja Boy (and the photo below). In this interview with Soulja, he explains that he didn’t even know Masika and Mally Mall were messing around because “S—, I thought Masika was with Yung Berg! Gotdamn!” This show never fails to keep the drama alive!

Just How Difficult Is It To Choreograph And Perform Those Drumline Drumming Sequences?

“Shooting the drum sequences are like, so intricate and detailed. My forearms are sore, I have callouses on my hands, it’s tedious because you have to do it multiple times from different angles. It’s HOT,” star of Drumline: A New Beat, Tye White says, discussing the challenges of performing on the field in the new film, which premieres October 27th.But it’s not totally miserable, because, as White continues, “I really wouldn’t trade it for anything.”

“Once you get strapped up and they yell ‘Action!’ you get in the zone! You have this attitude where you’re ready to go!” co-star Jeff Pierre adds. And once the band is in motion, the music they create is incredible. Tune in at 9PM ET/PT on Monday, October 27th to check it all out in Drumline: A New Beat on VH1!
