"Don't cash crop on my cornrows"
As soon as I saw the headline “Hunger Games Star Calls Out
Kylie Jenner for Wearing Cornrows,” I was like, “Hi Amandla.” As you should all know by now, Amandla is my homegirl, and she can do no wrong. She only does right, and she has taken to social media, once again, to express her disappointment in the myriad celebrities who have no problem appropriating and enjoying black culture, without any sense of social responsibility to speak out against some of the biggest issues facing black Americans today. Did I say I love Amandla? I love Amandla. Click inside for more!

"No disrespect to anyone..."
Even I have to admit that in a game of Who’d You Rather [listen to], it’d be a difficult task to choose between Miguel and Frank Ocean. Both are incredible talents, and both are responsible for some serious bangers. You all can probably guess that I’d choose Frank, but I also have to admit that I’m not as familiar with Miguel‘s work (though I’ve definitely fallen in love with a few of his songs and am currently bumping Coffee). Now that his album has dropped, he’s making a strong case for why we should be listening up—and he’s taking shots at Frank Ocean in the process. Click inside for more!

"Yall gotta have a chill button"
I’m not ashamed to admit that last night at a cookout, the subject of Nicki Minaj and Meek Mill came up, and stayed up fro about 15-22 minutes. The general consensus among a group of experts in attendance (myself included, obviously) was that it is incredibly difficult to take this relationship seriously, after watching Nicki have one of the most private long term relationships in the history of celebrity. Safaree, we believe you’ve been done dirty, and we support you. At the same time, I want to be optimistic and say that Nicki and Meek are a real-life couple and therefore deserve to be happy in peace. However, I’m not the only with opinions about this couple, and rapper Joe Budden (who’s always down for a good Twitter debate) took to his podcast to let the world know why he isn’t feelin’ them.

So. Iggy Azalea thought she was gonna be real cute and publicly criticize our dear Britney Spears for the lackluster chart performance of their new single Pretty Girls. After a string of terribly embarrassing career missteps — including the cancellation of her upcoming concert tour to her pulling out of a Gay Pride performance due to her wretched homophobic comments on social media — Iggy thought it would be a GREAT IDEA to come for the biggest pop star she will ever work with in her life with some petty bullshizz. Not long after Azalea fired a tweet at Britney that reads “I dont have to suck the womans asshole 24/7 to be her friend, do i?“, Britney responded on her official Twitter profile with the simplest, shadiest most perfect retort … all of which you can read below.

Is she being a bit... extra... at this point?
So, it sucks to break up. And although social media is great and groundbreaking and we need it for all of the good social media things, breaking up in the time of social media sucks a lot worse than probably anything else. Nicki Minaj and Safaree were super-secretive about their relationship when they were together. We literally heard nothing ever about them and Nicki was not about posting those mushy-guysh look-at-us-and-how-hella-cute-we-are posts, although he did pop up in her Instagram photos. So watching them get into Twitter beefs and more recently accusing each other of cheating is pretty sad… as is Safaree’s new song about the breakup. But the worst thing is watching Nicki do all of those mean things on Instagram, right after taking to Twitter to slam Safaree. Why, Nicki, whyyyyy?!
"people got it twisted!"
Yesterday morning, former One Direction member Zayn Malik got into a Twitter beef with still One Direction member Louis Tomlinson after Louis got into a Twitter beef with Zayn‘s new music producer and all-around BFF Naughty Boy. Today, we get a bit of an update on this elementary school bullshizz from Zayn himself. After he injected himself in Louis and Naughty‘s squabble, Malik received a fair bit of criticism from fans and non-fans alike, prompting the former boybander to speak up and defend himself against his detractors. Do NOT get it twisted, people, Zayn says he was only defending himself … so … there. More »
"remember when you had a life ..?"
Oh man … here we go. It’s been a few weeks now since Zayn Malik quit One Direction to become a solo artist (and a “regular 22-year old”) and up until now, the split has been fairly amicable — at least, in public. That all changed just a short time ago when Zayn and is former One Direction groupmate Louis Tomlinson got into a beef on Twitter. It all started when Zayn‘s new BFF/producer Naughty Boy posted a photo of the two of them on Twitter and Louis chimed in to make a snide remark. Naughty and Louis went at it back and forth for a bit … and then Zayn inserted himself and now the world is practically over because former BFFs Zouis are now feuding on Twitter and nothing makes sense anymore :( More »
Trouble In Mother/Daughter Paradise
Lindsay Lohan has pretty much always been ride or die with her mother Dina Lohan but it looks like those days are over. Lindsay has been growing more and more apart from Dina ever since she moved to London and started getting her life in order. Recently, it was revealed that Dina is planning to appear on Celebrity Big Brother in the UK which Lindsay is NOT happy about at all. Today we learn that Dina has been reportedly selling off Lindsay‘s stuff to clear up space in her garage and make money to pay her bills which, we’re told, has really strained things between mother and daughter. Apparently, Lindsay will put up with most of Dina‘s bullshizz behavior but when it comes to selling off her personal belongings, Lindsay won’t stand for it. More »

All is NOT Full of Love
Back in January, Björk released her new album Vulnicura which chronicles her unhappy break-up with her ex Matthew Barney. Today we learn that Barney is striking back at Björk with his attempt to get custody of the couple’s daughter Isadora Bjarkardottir. While I’m certain that Matthew‘s attempt to sue Björk for child custody has more to do than with his bitterness over her new album, I’m also certain that the album’s release doesn’t help matters. Barney is alleging that he doesn’t get enough time with his daughter and, so, he wants the court to help him get more custody of his child. Ugh. It’s bad enough when a couple goes through a bitter break-up but when kids get involved in the fight, it’s just the worst thing ever. More »
Naughty Boy released the song after he got into a Twitter beef with Louis from 1D
SOOOO … remember how Zayn Malik decided to quit as a member of One Direction last week due to a litany of excuses? Well, today we learn the real reason he decided to go in his own direction … because he wants to become a solo artist, apparently. After producer Shahid Naughty Boy Khan, who we now know is working on solo material with Zayn, got into an odd Twitter beef with One Direction member Louis Tomlinson yesterday after Louis felt Naughty was bragging about working on solo music with Zayn, he went ahead and released a demo version of a Zayn solo track titled I Won’t Mind for all the world to hear. I’ve given the song a couple of listens and A.) it doesn’t sound to me at all like Zayn Malik (tho, I must admit, I don’t really know what he sounds like without 1D) and B.) I don’t really care for the slower, more “soulful” sound that Zayn is trying to go for. HMMM. Click above to hear Zayn‘s solo track I Won’t Mind for yourselves (for as long as the song remains on You Tube) and then click below to read the Twitter beef exchange that took place yesterday between Louis and Naughty Boy which resulted in the release of this song.
