"Zendaya, Umma let you finish... "
Y’all. I am sitting here, furrowing my brow and cracking up at the same damn time, because I cannot get over the stunt Nicki Minaj just pulled. Is she serious? I asked myself. Is she literally and figuratively snatching away Zendaya’s Barbie spotlight to make room for her own? If so, why in the hell would she do so? These are the difficult questions that plague us this Monday morning. Please click inside and help me figure out the extreme pettiness of Nicki Minaj.
LMAO, this is epic
THIS. GAVE. ME. LIFE. Have you ever loved a song so much, you’ve literally sung it at the top of your lungs, whilst tears were pouring down your face? OF COURSE you have. Has anyone ever taken a video of you doing this, and then the singer of that song posted it on her Instagram, for all of her 26.4 million followers to see? Probably not. Rihanna wants you to know that her #CurrentMood is that of this Rihanna Navy superfan in Rio de Janeiro, who loves the song What’s My Name more than you’ve probably ever loved anything in life.

She also spit on and punched another passenger
It has been some time since rapper Azealia Banks‘s mouth got herself into trouble but today we learn that her relatively good streak of good behavior has come to an end. Banks got into a physical incident with a fellow airplane passenger last night which lead to her getting into a verbal altercation with a flight attendant and the plane’s co-pilot. According to TMZ, Azealia tried to deboard a Delta flight as quickly as possible last night but she was impeded but a French couple who were trying to deboard as well. Banks was unhappy with her run-in with this other passenger and allegedly assaulted him physically … which is when the flight attendant stepped in and all hell broke loose. Azealia Banks resorted to calling the flight attendant a “fucking faggot” before she ran off the plane. I mean, sadly, this is the kind of base behavior we have come to expect from Banks, which is entirely depressing to me. More »

Honestly, this sounds something quite atrocious
SO, as we should all be very aware by now, the Walt Disney Company has decided to start remaking their beloved classic old films into shiny new films for a new generation of fans (even tho the original films are still classic masterpieces that can be enjoyed by people of all generations). Thus far, we’ve learned that Disney has announced plans to remake Pete’s Dragon, Mulan, Winnie the Pooh, Sister Act and Fantasia … to name just a few projects. Today, I am officially losing it over news that Disney is now planning to remake the 1964 film Mary Poppins. For some INSANE reason, the execs at Disney think it will be a good idea to try and remake a film that is already practically perfect in every way. Actually scratch that, Mary Poppins is absolutely perfect in every single way. Even still, a remake is on the way … whether we like it or not. More »

"The show will not just be Whitney comes on, sings and gets off"
The late Tupac Shakur has been given the hologram treatment, as has the late Michael Jackson. Today we learn that the late Whitney Houston will be “resurrected” as a hologram that will go on a concert tour next year. Alki David, the CEO of Hologram USA, gave an interview to Billboard magazine to discuss plans for hologram Whitney‘s planned upcoming tour, giving us a bit of insight as to how the show was conceived, which Houston family members are on board and what audiences might expect when hologram Whitney‘s tour comes to town.

And I thought I was having a bad day
For the most part, Lindsay Lohan has managed to turn her life around and get things back on track in recent years. After her storied history of rehab and arrests and rehab again and arrests — again, Lindsay managed to get herself sorted out by moving to the UK, far from the glare and temptations she succumbed to here in the US (in LA and NYC, in particular). For some time now, Lindsay has remained relatively quiet in terms of being in the public eye, with only her official Instagram profile giving us a peek into what is going on in her life. Yesterday, Lindsay posted a photo on Instagram that came with a very bizarre caption. Her odd message rambles on without really saying anything lucid, with mentions of Michael Jackson (#RIP), Allah, PETA, TMZ, Oprah the United Nations and more. I mean … you kinda have to see and read it for yourselves to appreciate the oddness. Have a look. More »

The ignorance is real
So, I did not watch the MTV VMAs last night, although I did have a blast following much of the shenanigans on Twitter. One of the biggest issues people had with the show was host Miley Cyrus. I think I expected she would wear… exactly what she wore. And I knew she’d probably, like, show her boobs or something. But I was really surprised about her using the word “mammy” in some apparently not-very-funny skit with Snoop Dogg. Why was I surprised? I dunno… because I’m ridiculous and I expect that, even if it was her idea, MTV would have been like, “Nah. We can’t let you invoke that dangerous racial stereotype, especially while you’re culturally appropriating the hell out of dreadlocks.” But that’s not what happened. Click inside for more.
This is probably not funny [anymore].
So, here’s my thing about Nicki Minaj‘s Anaconda wax figure up at Madame Tussauds. First of all, I agree with Azealia Banks—Nicki is considered by many to be one of the best rappers alive. Anaconda may have been a huge hit, but they could have chosen another pose for her, if say, they’d really thought about her overall impact on rap. My other thing is that gross people are gross. After you’ve seen a bunch of photos online of people putting their hands and tongues all over this wax figure, why would you show up and do the same damn thing? Now wax Nicki is getting bodyguards/bootyguards to keep it from being wax sexually assaulted. Nice work guys! Click inside for more.
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.
