Rihanna Encourages Other Races To "Pull Up" For Black Issues At NAACP Image Awards

Read more >>>

We may not yet have a new album from Rihanna, but we did get one hell of a speech when she took to the stage to accept the President's Award at this year's NAACP Image Awards Saturday night. The honor is historically bestowed upon an individual who has made a clear and vested commitment toward promoting diversity and working toward the advancements of minorities in their communities and beyond. As Rih accepted the prize, she extended on these same tenets to deliver on a stirring speech before the audience gathered in the Pasadena Civic Auditorium.

"Tonight is not really about me. The purpose is bigger than me. It's not bigger than us together, but it's bigger than me. My part is a very small part of the work that's being done in this world, and the work that is yet to be done," Rihanna began, receiving warm applause within her first remarks. "We can only fix this world together. We cannot do it divided. I cannot emphasize that enough."

She went on to touch on the pitfalls of casting off another race or gender's problems if they don't necessarily apply to you, urging the crowd before her and the fans at home to encourage their friends of other races to get involved in the issues that matter to them.

"This is their problem, too. So when we're marching and protesting and posting about the Michael Brown Jrs and the Tatiana Jeffersons of the world, tell your friends to pull up."

Watch her full speech below.

Adrien Broner Arrested At Wilder Vs. Fury 2 Weigh-In

Read more >>>

Friday, Adrien Broner found himself in handcuffs when he was arrested while attending the weigh-in ahead of Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury's landmark rematch Saturday night.

TMZ Sports reported the story, detailing that Broner was placed under arrest by Las Vegas Metro police for trespassing after refusing to leave the MGM Grand, where the weigh-in took place, and where he last fought in a loss against Manny Pacquiao in January of last year.

The arrest stems from an alleged ban from the property that was issued against Broner in November of 2019. At the time of this writing, it is not entirely clear why Broner is not allowed on the property. However, he was first asked by hotel security to leave. When the request was not honored, law enforcement stepped in. 

Broner has since been released from the county jail, hopping on Instagram to check what the moves were in Vegas seeing as how he can't return to the location of the fight Saturday night. 

"Fresh out the slammer," he penned. "What's popping tonight Vegas?"

It marks only the latest in a string of legal incidents involving the former champion. In December, Broner was ordered to pay approximately $830,000 to a woman who accused him of sexual assault at a Cleveland nightclub. Prior to that, he pled guilty to two criminal charges related to the occurrence, receiving a sentence of two years probation. In February 2018, he was also arrested for misdemeanor sexual battery after groping a woman in a mall.

Justin Bieber Avoids Eating Bull D*ck By Throwing Cara Delevingne Under The Bus

Read more >>>

Justin Bieber had no choice other than to list Cara Delevinge at the bottom of his wife's least favorite best friends list while on The Late Late Show with James Corden. The "Second Emotion" performer and James Corden played a game of 'Spill Your Guts or Fill Your Guts,' a game where guests are forced to answer tough questions or eat questionably-edible food, and the Canadian singer/songwriter chose to rank his wife's, Hailey Baldwin's, best friends instead of eating a hefty serving of bull penis. 

With a horrendous variety of edible options on the list, James Corden confidently asked Justin Bieber in the midst of the segment:

"Your wife Hailey has some very famous friends that she is really close to. Rank these friends of hers from your favorite to your least favorite, Gigi Hadid, Kendall Jenner, and Cara Delevingne, from your favorite to your least favorite." 

Without hesitating Justin Bieber quickly replied:

"Kendall, Gigi, Cara Delevingne."

As the crowd and Corden roared with speculation, Bieber cleared the air on his choices, stating:

"All right, all right. Kendall, Gigi, Cara Delevingne. Let's go back to it, though. I know Kendall the best, I spent the most time with Kendall. She is a good friend of ours. I haven't spent a lot of time with Gigi and I haven't spent a lot of time with Cara. So, I have nothing against those people, it's just I have a better relationship... It's not like I'm like, 'Oh, screw you Cara... I don't wanna eat a bull penis."

After seeing Justin Bieber's late-night interview, Cara Delevingne took to her Instagram account to combat Bieber's ranking posting the clip and a picture of them together captioning the post:

"Now vs. Then. If you have nothing against me, then why don't you unblock me? Love you @haileybieber—he should have just eaten the bull penis." 

While Delevingne is most likely joking, she has to be little bit disappointed that the Biebs ranked her last so quickly. Also, Justin did what he had to do to avoid eating a bull d*ck. Check out the full segment of Justin Bieber's venture into exotic delicacies on The Late Late Show with James Corden in the video provided above. And, check out Cara Delevingne's response in the post provided below. 

J.I.D. Celebrates "151 Rum" Going Gold

Read more >>>

When J.I.D. dropped DiCaprio 2 in November 2018, it continued to solidify the Atlanta lyricist as one of the game's best and brightest. At the forefront of the rollout was the project's lead single "151 Rum," a Christo-produced banger that doubled as a clinic for J.I.D's impeccable flow. Now, the single has gone on to mark a major milestone for the Dreamville rapper, securing him his first gold certification as a solo artist; he's no stranger to RIAA glory, having taken home a few gold plaques for Revenge Of The Dreamers 3, "Down Bad," and "Costa Rica."

Yet a solo plaque hits different. J.I.D. took to Instagram to celebrate the milestone, penning an emotional reflection on the road traveled thus far. "It’s always Lil indicators to let you know u either fucking up or going in the right direction, we working on this album right now so this came in at a fragile time but inspiring nonetheless," he writes. "Me and @tischristo been working on our sound for years and for this to be the official first SOLO song to go gold is crazy. Thank you to my fans, management, label and everyone who has ever shared or listen to this record. Im super appreciative and for now we fina keep working on this new music to fuck y’all up with."

 On a more serious note, we hope this fragile time isn't taking too much of a toll on his spirit. It goes without saying that J.I.D. has been killing the game of late, and we look forward to seeing him continue to share his creativity. As long as he doesn't forget to take his time and enjoy the little things life has to offer - he's most certainly earned it. Congrats!

G Herbo & Ari Fletcher Have "Great Co-Parenting Relationship Right Now"

Read more >>>

Their relationship has been fraught with difficulties, but G Herbo insists that his relationship with ex-girlfriend Ari Fletcher is positive. For a while, the pair was trading insults on social media and at one point, Herbo was arrested on charges of physical assault. Back in April 2019, the rapper was taken into custody after Ari alleged that he dragged her by her hair and left scratches on her arm. Last month, Herbo pleaded guilty and "was sentenced to a full year of probation, 150 hours of community service, and a mandatory 24-week family violence intervention program."

Nearly a year after the alleged incident, Herbo revealed to Chicago's WGCI that he and Ari, who is now dating Moneybagg Yo, are co-parenting their son with no issues. "I talk to her all the time. We have a great co-parenting relationship right now," Herbo said. The rapper also revealed that having a son has made him reevaluate his priorities in life. "Am I doing something my son will be proud of one day? Or am I doing something that I'll be able to leave to my son one day?" the rapper said he asks himself.

Elsewhere in the interview, Herbo discussed the inspiration about his forthcoming album PTSD that is set for release next Friday (February 28). "My music has always been a reflection of my lifestyle and how I thought anyway," said Herbo. "Just, from me being 16, 17-year-old kid to the 24-year-old man that I am now. You can contest, even from the outside looking in, probably on my situation, a lotta times we get immune to what we're up against here in Chicago. A lotta death and the reality of a situation where you might have to fend for your life one day or wind up going to jail for something crazy. We're so used to it, it's a real mental health [issue]. It's like a disease in a way." Watch G Herbo's interview with WGCI in full below.
