BET Issues Apology to Nicki Minaj

Nicki Minaj was not here for the shade during Grammy night. BET posted a tweet that got the attention that they didn’t want after Cardi B’s ‘Invasion of Privacy’ won best rap album. Someone thought it would be a good thing to shade Nicki for not receiving a Grammy. It don’t go over well.

Sis was not having it and announced that Cash Money will not be working be apart of the BET Experience Tour.

BET tried to clean house be releasing a statement on the matter but didn’t seem to take much accountability. Take a look at the statement signed by “BET Spokesperson”.


BET loves Nicki Minaj. We have supported her from the very beginning of her career and will continue to do so moving forward. Nicki has paved the way for so many performers and has solidified her place as one of the most powerful figures in the music industry.


Unfortunately, the respect we have for Nicki was violated by this post that should never have been written. The post does not reflect how we feel about Nicki. And further does not reflect our company values. We deeply apologize for the hurt, disappointment and confusion that this post has caused. We are committed to doing everything we can to address the situation.


We are also conducting an internal audit to assure these types of posts are not published again. We have apologized to Nicki and her team. The post has been removed and we have taken additional appropriate action. We understand Nicki’s position and look forward to continuing our dialogue with her.
Finally, we apologize to all of her fans. This should have never happened.


Not sure if Nicki has accepted the apology but this a moment that BET can learn from this. Their social media account have started to look very click bait-ish. If BET wants to be ‘The Shade Room’ they can hang it up because it will never happen. BET doesn’t need to become ‘The Shade Room’ they need to just continued to provide quality content. Focus on that.

Tiffany Haddish Does the Big Chop on IG Live

Published

on

Actress and comedian Tiffany Haddish just took to Instagram Live to do the big chop for all to see! Recently she’s been teasing us with the idea of her chopping off her faux locs, something many Black women are doing in the midst of this natural hair renaissance.

In the short live session, which you can find below, Haddish reaffirmed her decision to cut her hair, and was even a little confused as to why folks were shocked she was doing this. “What is y’all tripping off of? They acting like this sh*t ain’t gonna grow back,” she said.

As she kept cutting, she reminded viewers that she had been toying with the idea for years and finally decided to do it. The actress snipped away as she told us all, “People be thinking I just be running my mouth. When I say things I means it. Who wanna buy a loc?”

Haddish always has jokes for us, even if they are problematic at times. Following rapper Kanye West’s announcement that he was running for President in 2020, she took to Twitter to announce her own candidacy for the office, in a total spoof of West’s tweet. Her running mate? Why, legendary comedian Dave Chappelle, of course.

Rich Dad, Poor Behavior: 50 Cent and Lil Wayne Joke About ‘Exotic Women’, Daughter Responds.

mm

Published

on

A video of 50 Cent and Lil Wayne has surfaced wherein Curtis talks about wanting an “exotic” woman and seems to express an urge to physically attack women who call him out on his “preference”.

If I’m honest, even the most ardent of wig-snatchers might have simply ignored the video, dismissing it as yet another 50 Cent super villain moment. Half-Dollar is in a near-perpetual hotseat for doing things like making fun of Power cast members and attacking his own son on Instagram. What makes this different is the company he’s keeping and the reaction the video elicited. In the video, you can see Weezy’s few remaining locs jostling as he giggles like a 12-year-old with a nudie magazine. Weezy has a daughter. She felt the need to respond.

Before I go any further, I’d like to commend Reginae Carter for what she’s done here. Black women should never feel the need to “take the high road”, but she does. More admirable is how she centers the uplifting of the women who may have been affected by her father’s actions. That’s an incredibly difficult thing to do when family is involved.

All that said, this is not an isolated incident. As I said, 50 Cent is constantly making remarks like this. Most days, he gets ignored. Weezy’s lyrics have always been misogynoiristic, colorist, and he himself has made it clear that he doesn’t have a desire to learn. There’s a long history of these things being ignored. Our community doesn’t do enough to protect Black women. Oluwatoyin Salue’s tragic demise is proof of that, so it feels especially sinister when we see the real-world affects of these sentiments in real time.

Pusha T Pushes Young Thug’s Buttons with Drake Diss

mm

Published

on

Your favorite rapper and investigative journalist is back at it again. According to Young Thug’s Instagram story, Pusha T, Gunna, and Thug did a track together, only for Young Thug to realize that Pusha T’s verse was a follow-up diss toward Drake. Young Thug claimed that he did not “respect” Pusha T’s verse, nor did he know what it was about, calling the whole ordeal “so gay.” (We’ll push past the casual homophobia, for now.)

I can only assume that nothing of interest was found in Young Thug’s family tree, because Pusha responded with yet another attack against Drake! In the span of four Story pages, he claims that Drake was the reason the verse, as well as another verse he did on Rick Ross’s “Maybach 6”, weren’t approved, that Young Thug was only on the song because Pusha demanded it, and finished it all off with the request that he be taken off of the deluxe version of Pop Smoke’s album.

Drake doesn’t seem to feel like he needs to respond, yet. He usually keeps his cards close to his chest. There’s also the fact that Pusha seems dead-set on calling Drake out with every chance he gets. It wouldn’t surprise anyone if Pusha T had more information in his arsenal that could further tarnish Champagne Papi’s image. It could also be that Drake just doesn’t want to give Pusha the attention he’s desperately ordering.

It’s all very messy-boots, which the gworls over on Twitter seemed more than happy to eat up.
