About Nicki Minaj Calling Out Miley Cyrus at the VMAs

I did not watch the MTV VMAs last night, because I was out enjoying my last weekend in Chicago until October. BUT, you know I had to catch up with the highlight, which was Nicki Minaj getting on stage and calling out Miley Cyrus. What had happened was, a few …

About Ciara, Future and The Inconsistent Hoe Label

It has been weeks since Future started his press tour that was supposed to be about his album but it turned into a junket about insulting his ex and one of the mothers (there’s like 4 or 5) of one of his children, Ciara. Long story short, he’s not pleased …

About Patricia Arquette’s Backstage Speech at the 2015 Oscars

I didn’t watch the 2015 Academy Awards so there’s no recap! And I’m kinda on the go but I saw a clip of Patricia Arquette’s speeches, both onstage and backstage. She should have quit while she was ahead because I’m here to talk about her comments in the press room. …

The Time Amber Rose Ethered Khloe Kardashian on Twitter

This whole thing started because Amber Rose went on a show and talked about how she is not feeling the idea of Tyga’s grown ass at 26 years old, dating Kylie Jenner, who just turned 17. It is ridiculous that it’s happening and Amber was right to call it out. …
