Jada Pinkett-Smith Declares She’s Bringing Herself to the Infamous “Red Table”

When I heard Jada Pinkett-Smith may have had an inappropriate relationship with August Alsina, I said “No! Not Jada!” Justin called me, a tear falling from his third eye, and he was like “Not Jada!” We meditated, aligning our spirit energies with Willow’s, before we decided it was time to write this article.

Twitter erupted when a video of August Alsina was published, wherein he spoke of an alleged, Will Smith-cosigned, affair he had with Jada Pinkett Smith.

It didn’t take long before people started to voice their concern around the nature of their relationship. In the video, he explains that their relationship was so passionate that he could “die right now and… be okay, knowing that I truly gave myself to somebody.” This, alone, is enough to make anyone cringe who isn’t willing to validate relationships that center a peaceful death as their logical conclusion, but the math here… well, it’s mathing. And not in a good way.

Alsina mentioned the “years” in which he and Jada were allegedly coupled, and the Twitter Detective AgencyTM got suspicious.

See, August claims he was introduced to Pinkett-Smith in 2015. That means he was between the ages of 21 and 22-years-old. No, he wasn’t a minor, but given that he was brought into this space by Pinkett-Smith’s son, there’s reason to question Jada’s actions. Adding to the inappropriacy is the fact that August has been rather public about his drug-abuse history and the series of traumatic losses he endured in that time. Some expressed that this alleged affair indicates a predatory mindset on Jada’s part.

The Smith family are known for their ability to manage social media backlash. About a year ago, we reported on the Jordyn Woods situation and the hand the Smiths played in managing that narrative. In usual form, Jada has declared that she will be “bringing [herself] on The Red Table.” Though we’re unclear how this will bring the “healing” she claims is needed, we will be watching to see for ourselves how that goes.

One thing that we’ve already seen is Adrienne Banfield-Jones, Jada’s mother, posting a rather cryptic image to Instagram.

Maybe the spin has already begun. Maybe this had absolutely nothing to do with the Alsina situation. Either way, the internet has it now, and it’ll be watching.

Frank Ocean’s brother, Ryan Breaux, 18, was in a fatal car crash in Thousand Oaks, California this Sunday. His identity has not yet been confirmed by the medical examiner, but friends on the scene identified him to ABC7 News. An outpouring of support and well-wishes followed. (As well as the usual insensitivity.)

Ellen DeGeneres Might Be Out Of A Job

Published

on

After years of rumors, Ellen’s behind-the-scenes behavior is being shot into the mainstream, and… it isn’t pretty. The national uprisings have made the people bold. We’ve created a culture of protest, and that means workers are starting to speak out about the abuses they’ve faced, knowing that, honestly, it doesn’t get much worse than the lay-offs and cut hours they’ve already faced because of COVID-19. It all started with a Twitter thread:

Soon, the stories started pouring in. Before we knew it, Buzzfeed was busting this story wide open. “Ellen”, apparently, was a toxic work environment where there things like racism were allowed to float about unchecked. There were countless other reports of Ellen being a diva who didn’t want “unauthorized” people looking at her. Hell, they said she didn’t even tell her workers whether they’d be paid during the pandemic. She cried an apology.

Ellen DeGeneres
“Ellen”

This weekend, the nail met the coffin as a number of outlets reported that James Corden was posed to replace Ellen. Nearly all publications were quick to suggest that this is just rumor, since Ellen is set to return to her show soon, but rumors come from somewhere. I’ve worked in and around Hollywood for a long time. Ms. Ellen’s business wouldn’t be in these streets if WarnerMedia wasn’t planning to put her out there with it.

If you wanna learn more. The Washington Post’s nosey ass has all the details. In the meantime, please enjoy these tweets: #TiffanyPollardForEllen

50 Cent Apologizes To Megan Thee Stallion for Jokes About Shooting

Published

50 Cent did something he doesn’t ever do, no not respect Black women, but he finally apologized for his trash jokes on social media. 50 cent and other male celebrities joined in on the jokes and memes of Megan Thee Stallion shooting incident.

This is was what he had to say via his Instagram.

“Damn I didn’t think this s**t was real,🤦‍♂️It sounded so crazy,” the rapper captioned a clip from Meg’s IG Live. “@theestallion I’m glad your feeling better and I hope you can accept my apology. I posted a meme that was floating around. I wouldn’t have done that if I knew you was really hurt. Sorry.”

It’s the “I wouldn’t have done that if I knew you was really hurt.” for me. Why do you need Black women to validate that they are hurt for you to show some respect? She was shot. SHOT! What’s not clicking? This isn’t the first and probably won’t be the last time he clowns a Black woman. Remember where he made ignorant comments about all Black women being angry?

No word if Megan has accepted the apology or not. She doesn’t need to.

Thoughts?
