When Nick Cannon is not on the stage hosting America’s Got Talent. The man has other gigs and commitments to honor. Nick was given a stand-up comedy special with Showtime titled Stand Up, Don’t Shoot. By the title alone anyone can tell that this special will probably filled with racially charged jokes. It looks like the NBC Execs were not laughing. Jokes like …………
“I honestly believe, once I started doing ‘America’s Got Talent,’ they took my real n****r card. They did! Because then, like, these type of people started showing up to my shows. “I can’t do the real n*****r stuff no more, because then they’ll put me on TMZ.”
were not taken lightly. Nick was under major scrutiny at NBC and was threatened to be fired. Nick does not like to be threatened and has since decided not t return to NBC’s America’s Got Talent.
Well I get standing up for your rights, but I am totally shocked that Nick even had that kind of material breeding under his good guy persona. This guy is a mogul. He will be alright.
Gabrielle Union star of BET’s drama series Being Mary Jane has filed a lawsuit against BET. The network agreed to pay Gabrielle 3 Millions for a certain number of episodes. Not only has the network decided to tape season 4 and season 5, which gives the actress double the work. The network is not willing to give the actress more money. Gabrielle’s contract states that she will not shoot more than 13 episodes per season. When the show runner Mara Brock Akil left the show, many wondered how the show would survive without her. Things are not looking good.
Wendy Williams is in the hot seat again. The time the gossip Queen said the wrong thing about Jessie Williams’s speech. “If I were white I would be offended.” Those 8 words has earned Wendy much shade from her former viewers. I say former because no one (black people) will forgive Wendy for what she said this time. Wendy had the nerve to question the NAACP and HBCU‘s.
Well one Wendy opened up her big mouth. The tweets started rolling in. Take a look.
The lady of Da Band Sara Stokes is mad as hell. She is not happy with BET right now. Stokes appeared on the Centric‘s From The Bottom Up. Centric is BET’s sister station.
The show follows the lives of 5 African American women who found success and quickly hit rock bottom due to a scandal. Stokes was given the opportunity to be on the show and accepted it. Now that the show has aired, Sara doesn’t like the way she is being portrayed on the show. Sara says the producers are making her look like a man-beater. Well Sara you just got out of jail for beating your husband, so what did you think was going to happen? Sara is preparing to sue BET.
Never mess with an artist and his craft. I mean his set. Superstar Kanye Yeezy West had a tantrum minutes before he was supposed to perform on SNL. Yeezy’s wife Kim Kardashian West had to calm him down. Apparently after Yeezy’s set was put togehter, someone decided to tear it down and that pissed Kanye off. Someone tapped Kanye during his tantrum without his knowledge and not it has gone viral. You can can here Kanye referencing Taylor Swift and sayign he is better than Picasso. Some see this as disturbing. I see it as being passionate. Crazy or not he is the best artist of our time. Check out the tantrum below.
Rapper and Actor 50 cent has found himself in front of another lawsuit. However this one is totally bogus. 50 is being sued by an author named Larry Johnson. Mr. Johnson is claiming that the rapper stole his idea, he claims to be the real creator of Power. Larry claims that he submitted his manuscript “Tribulation of a Ghetto Kid” to a Nikki Turner. Mrs. Turner is an employee for G-Unit books. I had no clue that such a company existed, lol. Anyway Johnson says Power was his idea not 50’s. Listen to this, lol. The author Mr. Johnson claims that his manuscript includes two drug dealers with goatees, lol. You can not make this stuff up. He also goes on to say that the drug dealers in his book were working on becoming legitimate business men. So he is suing 50 cent for $200 Million Dollars. What a bunch of B.S.!!!!!!
I’m not sure where Mr. Johnson’s has been in the last 20 year, but almost ever story involving a drug dealer has the same story-line. Drug dealer gets rich, drug dealer gets arrested, drug dealer wants to be a legitimate business man. It just happened that Power is equipped with some of today’s greatest writers and they are really good at creating drama on paper and making it come to life. Also Mr.Johnson must not be reading the credits for the show. 50 cent is an EP for the show, he is not the creator of the show. Do you really think this man could come up with this kind of show (no offense). I think it is really disrespectful to the creator of the show to come up with such rhetoric. Power is an exceptional show that 50 cent just has been blessed to be apart of. I really do not think that this lawsuit will go anywhere.
But this just might be a little sprinkle of Karma for the rapper. Get Rich or Die Trying right?
So the very outspoken talk show host Wendy Williams pissed off a whole bunch of folks when she said that Ariana Grande will forever looks like she is twelve. Ariana’s fans are outraged and started the #cancelwendywilliamsshow movement. The popstars fans believe that Wendy is body shaming and they want her to stop.
But hold up you millenial Ariana Grande fans, PUMP YOUR BREAKS! Wendy Williams will remain on the air, you know why? Because Wendy’s entire career is based on hard hitting gossip, that we love. (You know you love it) Sometimes Wendy can be very foul, but we can’t whine and bitch about it. Really just knock it off. All of this nonsense is uncalled for, where was the #Arianagrandeisnasty for licking donuts at a bakery and not purchasing them. Also the episode where Wendy said Ariana looks twelve years old aired in April. So you guys are too little too late.
