Celebrity boxing matches have consistently been money-makers for promoters. Soon, Floyd Mayweather will face off against YouTubers-turned-boxer Logan Paul, Lamar Odom is scheduled to go up against an unnamed opponent this summer, and in an unlikely pairing, Natalie Nunn and Tommie Lee will apparently throw bows in the ring. Recently, the infamous Bad Girls Club star challenged Tommie to a boxing match, and in a response video posted last night (January 21), Lee accepted with open arms.
This seemed out of left field for the public, so people began to speculate that this may have been rooted in animosity. Tommie quickly shut that down. "Y'all I have absolutely No beef with her this is all in love for the sport," Lee wrote in an Instagram post. "Just fun and games this isn't about violence at all I do not know @realmissnatalienunn or anything about her this will actually be my 1st time meeting her in the Ring May the best Queen win."
Today, Nunn gave her fans a glimpse at her hands as she shared a video of herself training with her coach. Other than Tommie accepting the invitation to go round for round in the ring, there hasn't been any definitive information regarding where and where this match would take place. Watch Tommie agreeing to the match above and Natalie throwing some punches below.
When Celina Powell becomes a trending topic, no one is surprised by whatever antics may have recently occurred. One of Rap's current most infamous groupies doesn't hesitate to share her alleged encounters with some of our favorite stars, and often, Powell goes into explicit detail. Whether she's accusing Snoop Dogg of infidelity or calling out Tory Lanez, Powell is still able to connect with rap stars while living in the reputation of being a person who airs out everyone's alleged dirty laundry.
Powell's most popular appearances have been on No Jumper as she adds more shock value to her long list of supposed bedroom tales, and during a recent sit down with VladTV, Adam22 shared the story of why he canceled his podcast with Powell and her friend. "They did a couple episodes but I kinda underestimated the extent to which giving her a show would change the way that people viewed me doing content with her so much, you know?" he said. "'Cause it went from, 'Oh, this is a person that Adam does podcasts with occasionally' to 'Adam is setting up a platform for these girls to destroy Black men.'"
Adam mentioned the Odell Beckham Jr. scandal where the ladies started a viral rumor that the NFL star liked to be defecated on. "It just very quickly, like, them doing the podcast was starting to get the brand of like, oh, this is a platform for these girls to tear down successful Black men." He added that while No Jumper received an abundance of views following the ladies exposing famous men on their podcast, Adam decided it wasn't worth it.

Whenever there is a confirmed Verzuz on the horizon, fans love to come up with their preferred match-ups. We recently witnessed Keyshia Cole and Ashanti grace us with their R&B favorites, and while we're still reeling from Verzuz season, it's easy to find conversations about pairings. Usher and Chris Brown became trending topics after R&B fans debated who would take the crown; Lil Flip revealed in an interview that if the bag was right, he'd go up against T.I.; and Jim Jones commented on the fantasy of seeing Dipset and G-Unit on the program together.

Days ago, a meme surfaced asking the public to weigh in on who would come out on top if Dipset and G-Unit were to face off. People began to share their opinions and Jones let it be known that he's not afraid of any hit-for-hit battle. "[Five] cam records 5 juelz records 5 Jim records 5 Dipset records," he commented on the post. "We want all [the] smoke wit who ever." Jones and 50 Cent haven't exactly been the best of friends, so placing their collectives together for a chance at reconciliation is something fans would be excited to see.
Last month, while speaking with the Joe Budden Podcast, Jim Jones predicted what a Dipset appearance with G-Unit would look like. "If there were a chance for the G-Unit thing would happen, it wouldn't exactly count it out," he said. "I'd say it would probably be even more aggressive than even the Jeezy-Guwop Verzuz. I wanna wrestle and fight and sh*t."
Separately, French Montana recently shared that he and former foe Jones have agreed to appear on Verzuz if the opportunity presented itself.
We're fast approaching Lifetime's Salt-N-Pepa biopic's premiere, and the drama surrounding the film is already unfolding. We've previously reported on the strained relationship between Diedra "DJ Spinderella" Roper and her former groupmates Cheryl "Salt" James and Sandra "Pepa" Denton, but her removal from the biopic escalated the rift. On Friday (January 22), the day before the film's premiere, Spinderella took to both Twitter and Instagram to share her "disappointment" in being excluded from the story of the group's development.
"There's nothing more unacceptable than a woman being silenced by another woman," wrote Spin. "It is for this reason, I will not be supporting this biopic." Meanwhile, Pepa spoke with the New York Post about this film, revealing that it was a struggle for her to accurately share the alleged domestic violence she claims she endured while married to Naughty By Nature's Treach.
“Nothing was off-limits,” the 54-year-old rap legend told the outlet. “In the movie, I didn’t just want to focus on the negative things between us. I wanted to be fair to [Treach] and show that despite the bad, he was a good guy, too.”
“People will get to see the struggle we endured as female rappers in a male-dominated industry,” she added. “We had to fight for our voices to be heard." In the coming months, Salt-N-Pepa will be honored at the Grammys as the recipients of the Lifetime Achievement Award, followed by the celebration of their Hollywood Walk of Fame star. The Hip Hop duo is also open to getting back into the studio, however, they haven't carved out plans to do so just yet. Check out a few posts below.
