Social Media Erupts After First Half of ‘Leaving Neverland’ Airs

Fans of the King of Pop were outraged following the airing of the HBO documentary Leaving Neverland. The seemingly one-sided series is attempting to mar Michael Jackson’s once unquestionable legacy.

Featuring Wade Robson and James Safechuck, Director Dan Reed filmed the controversial documentary to bare skeletons in MJ’s closet. Wade Robson alleges that the beloved pop star molested him for 7 years. James Safechuck claims Michael Jackson molested him for years from the age of 10. However, fans of the icon are saying the men featured are liars. Among the major complaints is the testimony that both men provided in their adulthood where both men stated Michael Jackson never harmed them.

Celebrities that were close to Michael Jackson have yet to co-sign the allegations of Michael’s abuse. Macaulay Culkin and Corey Feldman were both incredibly close to the singer in their youth. While Wade Robson says Culkin replaced him, Culkin maintains MJ never harmed him. Corey Feldman, who has comprised a list of all known pedophiles in Hollywood, has stated multiple times that Michael was the one adult he knew would keep him safe.

“Nothing Happened”

Other inconsistencies from the alleged victims accounts have drawn criticism along with evidence that they have attempted to profit from their connection to Michael. On August 29th, 2015, it was discovered that Wade Robson had listed several items on eBay. Using a pseudonym, Chantal818, the seller listed Michael Jackson memorabilia from Playa Del Rey, California. Priced at $1100, one photo was of particular significance as the inscription read “To WADE the Best friend in the universe. Love, Michael Jackson.” So how did fans discover Wade listed the items? Instagram. Found of Wade Robson’s sisters Instagram, the post featured the same coffee table from eBay listing.

Changing Tales

Inconsistencies in James Safechuck’s account of sexual abuse has drawn much ire from the public as well. In May 2014, Safechuck alleged that Michael assaulted him during the 1988 Bad Tour. However, the timeline for the tour and following events do not match Safechuck’s account. Safechuck insists that he was assaulted in New York after Michael Jackson performed at the 1989 Grammy’s. However, the Grammy’s took place in Los Angeles, not New York and Michael didn’t perform, nor did he attend.

Those critical of dissonant fans are showing support for Safechuck and Robson as survivors. Many state that the contact Jackson had with children that were not his own was questionable. They also implore those loyal to the singer to examine their cognitive dissonance and dethrone the king of pop.

What’s your stance on Leaving Neverland? Are you standing with survivors or do you think Michael Jackson is innocent?

Snubs and Celebrations: 2019 BET Award Nominations Are in!

Published

on

While the major award season has long passed, summer entertainment and music awards season is upon us. BET just announced the nominees for the 2019 awards show.

Taking place on June 23rd at the Microsoft Theater in LA, actors and musicians will find out who stands among the winners and the losers. But the network that claims “We got you” is facing some heat for neglecting to include the queer community.

When it comes to who is looking to win big, all signs point to Cardi B. The “Money” rapper has been nominated 7 times with one award being Album of the Year. Her award nominations span 5 of the 20 available categories the ceremony highlights. While she’s sure to collect some trophies, her competition is rather steep. Cardi is up against The Carters album “Everything is Love.”

For actors, the categories are few and far between, but there’s love to go around…provided you aren’t a queer actor. The critically acclaimed FX drama series Pose is good enough to snatch trophies anywhere but home. BET has not recognized any talent from the series for either best actor or actress despite Billy Porter’s renowned performance. Fans of Pose have voiced their concerns on Twitter, calling out Black Entertainment Television for not rooting for everybody Black.

The full list of nominees is available here.

Are you excited to see who leaves a winner? Tune in June 23rd to find out who shines.

And Now Our Watch Has Ended: Game of Thrones Conclusion Falls Flat

mm

Published

on

Lovers of the fantasy series Game of Thrones tuned in for the nonsensical ending Sunday night. Much to their dismay, the conclusion to the once well-crafted tale left them with more continuity errors and questions than they bargained for.

Caution: This post contains spoilers for the entire series of Game of Thrones!

Howland Reed, The Grand Maester Conspiracy, The North Remembers, Lady Stoneheart. There were so many neglected arcs in the series that led to the rushed ending fans received last night. Although some still look fondly upon the franchise as one of the most enthralling, culturally captivating shows of all time, it’s memory is forever laced not just with what it included, but with what it altered or flat out ignored.

Originally foreseen by George R.R. Martin as having a Tolkien-esque ending where all loose ends are tied, showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss are being roasted for the botched ending they’ve presented to a longsuffering fanbase. Appearing to have conveniently forgotten the iconic author’s grand plan, D & D stood by as plot lines and character arcs suffered from their deviation. No longer able to contain their frustrations fans have been incredibly vocal with their displeasure. Screaming in a single voice and echoing the cast’s sentiments, the Game of Thrones fandom agrees that this ending is “bullshit”.

The beginning of the series finale focused on Tyrion’s journey to uncover the fate of his siblings and Jon’s journey to convince Daenerys not to be “more of the same.” The Red Keep, thought to be in complete ruin, was still accessible to Tyrion, even as he wandered toward the underbelly of the enormous castle. A torch in hand, he dug through bricks to reach the tunnels where Jamie and Cersei lay. In what would be the first of many “What the f*ck?!” moments of the evening, Tyrion actually discovers the corpses of the star-crossed twins. Viewers watched in disappointment as he managed to stand in an area that should have been clearly collapsed, implying that if the lovers stood a few feet to the right, they might have survived the implosion. A travesty! Yet more cringe would follow as the episode unfolded.

For anxious onlookers who couldn’t wait to see what Sunday would bring, they could feast their eyes upon an accurate leak that described the events. Telegraphing Grey Worm’s descent into heartlessness as he killed enemies of “The Queen”, Jon’s eventual betrayal of Daenerys, and even character endings, it all played out just as the unnamed source said things would. No matter how much we wanted it all to be untrue, there it was in all of it’s ugliness. After 10 long years of production, after 2 long years of wait, Game of Thrones ended with democracy, SIX kingdoms, and Bran The Broken, First of His Name ascending to rule.

The overall reception of the conclusion to the series is a solid “NOPE!”. Viewers and critics have given the episode, titled The Iron Throne, a 57% rating. As social media users continue to share the ways in which the end was unfulfilling for them, book readers are urging them to begin reading the texts. There are still two novels left in the series, giving show watchers access to a true ending and the satisfaction of complete arcs with stunning detail.

Were you disappointed with Season 8? Did you think the series finale was an epic conclusion or did it leave much to be desired?

I wanna see the receipts! Fans Think Porn Star Brittney Jones is the Mother of Trey Songz’ Son

mm

Published

on

Trey Songz has sent fans into a downward spiral after posting a photo of him holding the foot of his newborn son, Noah. Revealing he’s now a father, fans are left with one question — Who is the mammy?

Us too, bruh!

“Blessed and overjoyed” to have finally become a parent, Trey Songz revealed to the world he and his partner welcomed a son. However, the identity of the other party has remained a mystery…potentially until now. Sleuthing fans have speculated that a porn star named Brittney Jones, who was allegedly responsible for the split between Songz and Lori Harvey, is the mother of his child.

Secret Lovers?

In December 2018, Lori Harvey and Trey Songz split after Lori discovered Trey had some “sick and twisted” desires. Forming a wicked love triangle, his urges led him into the DMs and eventually arms of Brittney Jones, an adult entertainment actress. While many were reluctant to believe she and Trey Songz were in any type of relationship, Brittney had one hell of a way of proving detractors wrong — an ultrasound.

Originally posted by herself and then discovered by The Shade Room, Brittney alleged that she and Songz were not only intimate, she was pregnant! The ultrasound wasn’t all she had in her arsenal at the time. Brittney went on to share seemingly unmanipulated video of her accessing her Snapchat, exposing messages between her and Trey Songz from his personal account. She also shared DMs he sent via his verified Twitter account and text messages where she inadvertently exposed his phone number. But things between the adult film star and singer weren’t all love.

The Dates Don’t Line Up

During the lengthy Instagram Live session where Brittney exposed Trey Songz and their relationship, she stated she had to block the singer because he was obsessed with her. In so many words, Brittney said Trey was so impressed by her sexual prowess that he couldn’t fathom not having her. Using every method of contact he could to ensure he didn’t lose her, Brittney stated he just wouldn’t leave her alone. However, her tune changed not long after she exposed Trigga Trey.

Brittney took a moment to explain her actions and reasoned that she lashed out “to hurt him the way he hurt” her. At the time of this madness, Trey was attempting to make amends with Lori but it didn’t workout. However, that hasn’t stopped Lori from celebrating the birth of Trey’s child despite the fact that it means whoever the mother is, was pregnant in August.

When Brittney claimed to be with child, she was only four weeks along at the end of December. So for those who are searching for the mother of Noah, they’ll have to keep looking.
