Beyonce’s Formation is Her Best Thing Yet and it’s the IDGAF Anthem

I have always been a fan of Beyonce and respected her work. I’ve loved many a song. But I’ve never been a member of the BeyHive. I was in that group that liked her enough but stood on the sidelines as people debated if she ruled just Earth or Venus too. I …

Sounds Like James Franco is Columbussing Zola’s Story (UPDATE: Zola is Involved)

Remember the chaos-filled story that a stripped named Zola tweeted (read: Lessons from Zola’s Story: The Great Saga of Trapping and Mayhem)? Of course you do. The epic tale took us all by storm and the internet spent like a week talking about it, which by today’s standards is a long time …

Kanye Gotta Take His Ball and Go Home

The talk of this week has been Kanye West’s clapback on Wiz Khalifa, which he stupidly pulled Amber Rose (and her child) in by saying he got trapped by a stripper. I’m traveling this week so I haven’t had time to write a proper thing but I’ve been tweeting about …

Dear Stacey Dash, Who Knew Clueless Was a Biopic?

I have chilled on writing ex-actress and current Faux News mouthpiece Stacey Dash a sternly-worded letter for years, as I verbally chin-checked Raven-Symone. So this is overdue. Besides, so many of y’all asked me to that I was afraid that if I didn’t, you might pitch a tent on my eLawn …
