At this point, unless you’ve been living under a rock for the last few days, you know about the heated war of words and insults between Cardi B and Azealia Banks.
The feud, which was originally ignited in 2017 when Banks referred to Bardi as, “the poor man’s Nicki Minaj” and an “illiterate, untalented rat” was reignited, set ablaze, and burnt to a crisp, over comments Banks made during an interview with ‘The Breakfast Club’.
In the interview, Banks discussed how the popularity and promotion of Cardi B were actually “setting black women back”, because of what she represents. “I didn’t know the bar had been dropped“. Implying that Cardi isn’t a good representation for women of color. She also states, “I’m just talking about this caricature of a black woman that black women themselves would never be able to get away with. Like, if my spelling and grammar was that bad, I’d be canceled. If Nicki Minaj spelled like that, we would be ragging on her all day.”
After Bank’s interview, Cardi B responded with the following post and then deleted her Instagram page.
Cardi B has stated on more than one occasion that she doesn’t like being famous. Wendy “Wendell Bartholemew Orenthal” Williams called her out stating, “she needs to stop complaining, she hasn’t been famous long enough to complain!”
I concur she is always addressing the haters, instead of relishing in all the love and support she gets. If she doesn’t want it, I know Joseline would gladly take it.
Undoubtedly, critics such as Funk Flex, Nicki Minaj, Azealia Banks, Joseline Hernandez, Kashdoll, and others are going to exist. They say “you ain’t popping if you don’t have haters”.
“My lil 15 minutes lasting long as hell!”
If Cardi B intends to have longevity in the music industry (more than 15 min), especially on the level of Rihanna, Drake, Migos, Beyonce and other A-Listers, she has to develop a thicker skin. It is very easy to see that Cardi has a kind heart, made of gold and a gentle, delicate soul. Unfortunately, that makes her easy prey.
Take a page out of the great Book of Mariah Huq. Otherwise, go back to being C-List, Instagram and reality show famous. There’s nothing wrong with that, in fact, she may be happier.
Don’t Come Down Off Your Chariot Girl!
Beyonce, Usher, Madonna, Gaga and so many others have at some point had their name, business and talent drug through the mud. However, they allow the people to talk, their PR team handles the scandals and BS and they pay it dust, while appearing unbothered.
Stop letting the people see you sweat!
If you can’t take the criticism that comes along with the position, your options are:
1. Be Miserable trying to address non-supporters.
2. Allow someone else to oversee your social media pages.
3. Ignore them!
4. Give it up!
We are all (well most of us) are rooting for you! Good Luck!
Rolling Ray Undergoes Surgery After Wig Catches On Fire
Social media star Rolling Ray underwent surgery Tuesday morning to treat serious burns on his body after his terrible wig accident last week.
In a series of IG stories, he let his audience follow along as he prepped for surgery.
Last week Rolling Ray announced he was hospitalized after his wig caught on fire! During a January 13 Instagram Live session hosted straight from his hospital bedside, he showed his severely burnt and damaged face telling viewers his “whole skin, legs, arms, feet, and everything” were burned.
In a more recent Live, Ray explained the incident that led to his whole wig catching on fire: an unfortunate smoking accident. “It just, like, lit on fire when I tried to light the cigarette,” he recounted. “So I get to trying to snatch the wig off. B***h, the fire goes to my f*****g shirt, to my feet, to my legs, to my back. It’s a fire everywhere, it’s a fire in the whole room.”
Of course the internet trolled him in a disgusting display of ableism and heartlessness. Comments like “Rolling Ray should have stopped, dropped, and rolled” and “karma’s a b***h” had social media conflicted in its feelings about his accident. His sensation comes from his harsh and, often, below-the-belt reads (just last month he told Yung Miami to “dig (sic) up” her dead baby father. However, the criticism didn’t stop him from responding on Twitter.
Rolling Ray might be problematic as all get-out, but we do not tolerate ableism here. We wish him well as he heals.

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West Are Getting Divorced, Report Says
In a story published Tuesday evening, Page Six is reporting that Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are getting divorced, with the two already in settlement talks. The news comes after the couple spent the holiday season separately – Kanye at his ranch outside Cody, Wyoming, Kim and the kids with her famous family in southern California.
A source close to Kardashian was quoted saying, “Kim got Kanye to go up there so they could live separate lives and quietly get things sorted out to separate and divorce. She’s done.” Kardashian, 40, and West, 43, are said to be splitting because of marital problems directly related to Kanye’s very public mental health struggles.
For several years the rapper’s various antics have caused fans to worry. After coming out as a Trump supporter, West then announced his own 2020 presidential bid under a new political party: the Birthday Party. At a campaign rally in South Carolina, he was seen rambling, debating individual audience members, and at times, crying. In various interviews, he has rambled on almost incoherently, and his tweetstorms are now infamous.
For her part, Kim has always supported her husband and has openly discussed the difficulties of their marriage. Back in June, she shared on social media, “Anyone who has [bipolar disorder] or has a loved one in their life who does, knows how incredibly complicated and painful it is to understand… People who are unaware or far removed from this experience can be judgmental and not understand that the individual (has) to engage in the process of getting help no matter how hard family and friends try.”
It appears she has finally reached her limit in the union with the unnamed source saying, “She is serious about taking the bar exam and becoming a lawyer, she is serious about her prison reform campaign. Meanwhile Kanye is talking about running for president and saying other crazy s**t, and she’s just had enough of it.”
Separately, a source close to Kanye alleges the rapper is sick of his wife and her family, which might have some truth to it since he has tweeted some pretty nasty things about them in the past. “I been trying to get divorced since Kim met with Meek at the Warldolf [sic] for ‘prison reform,’” he said in a now-deleted July tweet. Recently, he hasn’t been featured on his wife’s Instagram and has largely remained out of the public eye.
With the news yet to be confirmed, the “divorce is imminent” reports are just rumors for now. We’ll be following the news as more information comes out.
