Poor Ice Cube Still Thinks In Terms Of ‘Bitches,’ ‘Hos,’ And ‘Upstanding’ Ladies

Straight outta non-misogynistic terms for women

Hey guys. Soooo remember a while back I got sorta, kinda, hugely pissed off over the casting call for women hoping for a part in the NWA biopic Straight Outta Compton? Remember how the women were ranked according to skin tone, with the light-skinned Beyoncé prototypes at the top of the list, and the “Poor, not in good shape. Medium to dark skin tone” women at the bottom. I wasn’t sure then if I was going to be heading into theatres to see this movie, and I’m still not sure, especially with this awesomely misogynistic new quote from Ice Cube. Click inside for more.

‘Scandal’ Will Get Back To Way More ‘Gladiating’ In Season Five, So Spaketh Shonda Rhimes

"Scandal is getting back to what it does best: Gladiating"

So I’m working on an essay about black women [shocker] in TV and how things certain images and stereotypes are and are not changing, which was a great excuse to go back and watch Season One of Scandal. And daaammmmnnnnn I love that season! Shadow&Act made a great point about how, in that season, Scandal felt like it could have been more like the show Damages, but then ended up going in a very different route. I’d forgotten about so many cool storylines, and as I headed into Season Two I felt similar pangs of nostalgia for the Scandal of old. Well, chin up Gladiators. Shonda Rhimes suggests that she has heard our cries about how we want that old thing back, and Scandal Season Five will be all about the Gladiators. Click inside for more!

Jennifer Aniston Did NOT Invite Matthew Perry Or Matt LeBlanc To Her Wedding

"It was a surprise to me ... I wasn't invited"

Jennifer Aniston and her beau Justin Theroux managed to pull off a surprise wedding ceremony here in LA last week and, as you may recall, we heard that Jen invited her Friends friends to celebrate her special day. Today, tho, we learn that Jen didn’t actually invite all of her Friends friends … in fact, she failed to invite any of her male Friends friends to her wedding. People magazine caught up with actors Matthew Perry (Chandler Bing) and Matt LeBlanc (Joey Tribbiani) this week and asked them about Jen‘s nuptials last week and learned that neither one was invited to the wedding ceremony (it is not yet known if David Schwimmer [Ross Geller] was invited but I’m pretty sure he didn’t attend) — in spite of the fact that both Courteney Cox and Lisa Kudrow were invited and did attend the wedding (Courteney, you know, was the Maid of Honor). Both Matthew and Matt had nice things to say about Jen and Justin, even if they were excluded from sharing in their wedding ceremony last week. Awww. More »

Prince Compares Record Contracts With Slavery

"I would tell any young artist ... don't sign."

Just a few days ago we learned that Prince is planning to release his new album HitNRun exclusively on TIDAL, Jay Z‘s “artist-owned” digital music streaming service just a week or so after Prince released a new song titled Stare exclusively on Spotify, a competing digital music streaming service. Today we learn that Prince, while promoting the release of his next album, is once again comparing record contracts with slavery. Back in the ’90s, Prince attempted to get out of his record contract with Warner Bros. Records by openly referring to himself as a “slave” that was owned by the record company (he even went so far as to write the word slave on his face in public). He changed his name to O(+> in a further attempt to get out of his record contract. Since then, he has reverted back to his name Prince and has re-signed a contract with WB Records for a new album. These days, he’s back to comparing record contracts with slavery because, obviously, everything old is new again. More »

FKA twigs Is Tired Of You People Asking Her About Robert Pattinson

"I think this could be my last interview. I can't do it."

I’d planned to write a cheeky little post about how FKA twigs is a god, and all these journalists need to bow down and stop bothering her with trivial questions about her soon-to-be-married life with fiancé Robert Pattinson. I was also thinking of making a comment about how, even though I effs with twigs, she may have picked the wrong guy to be with, if she has issues with being questioned about her personal life. But then I read the opening lines to this E! article and I thought, Nope. She’s totally right. This is ridiculous. We need to stop treating women artists like they can’t exist (as individual, autonomous artists) as soon as they get in a relationship. Click inside for more!
