Offset has recently been labeled “homophobic” after the lyrics of his new song with YFN Lucci “Boss Life”, raised eyebrows.
The song first dropped last month, but the video just dropped this week, bringing spotlight to the lyric once again. The lyrics goes, “Pinky ring crystal clear, 40k spent on a private Lear/ 60k solitaire/ I cannot vibe with queers.”
Offset quickly addressed the issues via Instagram, posting a picture of the definition of “queer” and giving his reasoning for using that word specifically saying,
I have said before since these issues before that I got love for all people. My passion for fashion has lead me to a lot of gay people around me who I have mad respect for and we are very cool so I’m not in a place where I’m hating like that. When I wrote that I was thinking of words that could rhyme with the others (here, lear, solitaire, bear) and I saw this definition about her having a queer feeling she was being watched and it fit what I was thinking about a stalker creepy paparazzi situation. To me that “queer” I don’t mean someone who’s gay. I mean lame people who film you, post it and stalk you. Lingo that means strange or odd.
I M S O R R Y
I A P O L O G I Z E
I’m offended I offended anybody
We all know Offset needs no more issues right now after his cheating allegations.
Cardi B is still leveling up in 2018.
Rumor has it Cardi may have just signed off on her first movie role! According to TMZ, filming will begin in March. And it must be a promising role because the word is that Cardi has turned down with March events to focus on the movie. As of now, those are all the details we have.
Cardi also just became the first women with five Top 10 singles simultaneously on Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart in a single week ever, with “Finesse”, “Bartier Cardi”, “Bodak Yellow”, “No Limit,” and “Motorsport.” Beyonce previously held the record with 4 songs.
The Raptor’s have had a pretty great relationship with Drake over the past few years, even naming him as their Global Ambassador.
The rapper’s “Drake Night” has been a success for the team, and they have now decided to that their relationship to another level. The Raptor’s have announced their new campaign with Drake, “Welcome Toronto”, which will include 6 home games labeled as an “immersive brand experience focused on art, community, and ball.”
If you ask me, the coolest thing about this whole campaign is the black and gold, OVO-themed court the team will play its special home games on. With a new court, must come new uniforms, right? Drake will play a role in the new designs of the teams uniforms, and of course, they will include the OVO logo.
The program itself pledges $1 million from OVO and the Raptors over the next 3 years to refurbish 12 local community basketball courts. Drake hopes these donations will “potentially shape the next generation of Canadian basketball superstars,” with an added $2 million going to the Canada Basketball over the next 5 years.
Drake praises the program on “celebrating our team and our city, but also working together to give back to the community and creating a place where the youth of our city can come together to play.”
The first game will be January 26th vs. Jazz
Sunday, Jan. 28 vs. Lakers
Friday, Feb. 2 vs. Trail Blazers
Friday, Mar. 9 vs. Rockets
Friday, Mar. 23 vs. Nets
Friday, Apr. 6 vs. Pacers
Mr. & Mrs. Jones have decided to take their relationship onto WEtv’s “Marriage Boot Camp.”
Jim Jones and his fiancé Chrissy have been engaged for as long as any of us can remember. During the “Love & Hip Hop” days, marriage was always brought up, but that was about it. The two eventually got engaged in 2012, and their relationship continued to be in the spotlight with the show “Jim & Chrissy: Vow or Never.” The show ended with the two undeceive on whether to get married or not. The couple has been engaged for about 6 years, and now here we are at “Marriage Boot Camp: Family Edition.” Yes, Mama Jones will be making an appearance as well.
There have been a few rumors saying the couple secretly got married last year, so I guess the show will give us all the answers we need.
I am VERY interested to see how this “pre-martial counseling” ends! The show starts in March.
Lil Wayne has recently been ordered to pay $5,000 in child support for a 15-year-old boy Wayne claims is not his. Wayne never responded to the initial lawsuit, so a default judgement was made in favor of the mother.
Back in October, Keiotia Watson filed a paternity lawsuit against Wayne claiming they have a secret son together who is now 15. She even named the boy Dwayne, after Wayne. Wayne has finally responded saying, “I did not engage in a sexual relationship with Keiotia Watson in June of 2001 or at any other time”. He also added: “In June of 2001 I was residing in New Orleans, but my professional commitments required me to travel a great deal throughout the United States. I do not believe it is possible that I am the biological father of Dwayne Brown. I have never acknowledged Dwayne Brown as my son, nor was I ever made aware of his birth until I was served with the petition.”
The new trial hearing is set for next month.
In recent Trump news, it was revealed that during the meeting earlier this week regarding the DACA program to protect immigrate children, that Tump asked lawmakers “Why are we having all these people from shithole countries come here?”, he then suggested that we need to accept more immigrates from countries like Norway. He even made a direct comment about Haiti asking, “Why do we need more Haitians? Take them out.”
According to CNN, the White House has respond by that Trump is “fighting for permanent solutions that make our country stronger by welcoming those who can contribute to our society, grow our economy and assimilate into our great nation.” Adding that Trumps comments will resonate with his core audience, just like is comments about the NFL kneeling.
Trump has denied all the other recent allegations. He tweeted, “The language used by me at the DACA meeting was tough, but this was not the language used. What was really tough, was the outlandish proposal made – a big setback for DACA!”
Trump later tweeted Friday morning that he “Never said anything derogatory about Haitians other than Haiti is, obviously, a very poor and troubled country. Never said ‘take them out.’ Made up by Dems. I have a wonderful relationship with Haitians. Probably should record future meetings – unfortunately, no trust!”
All of Trump’s negative comments have been confirmed by a senator who was at the meeting.

James Franco is the most recently actor to be added to the list of the sexual assault accused. Five women total have stepped forward to speak out on Franco, four being students, one other being a woman he mentored.
Franco appeared on several late night talk shows this week and gave his side after the accusation surfaced, but he still decided to skip the Critics Choice Awards on Thursday, at which he won Best Actor in a Comedy Film. Franco flew to L.A. for the awards, but changed his mind.
“I have my own side of this story, but I believe in these people that have been underrepresented getting their stories out enough that I will hold back things that I could say, just because I believe in it that much,” he said on Late Night with Seth Meyers. “So if I have to take a knock because I’m not going to try and actively refute things, then I will, because I believe in it that much.”
Sources tell PEOPLE that “he’s in a really bad place, so bad that he changed his phone number. His close friends are trying to be there for him but it’s been hard – he’s only talking to a select group of people. For now, he’s just hiding out.”
“Look, in my life I pride myself on taking responsibility for things that I have done,” Franco told Stepen Colbert on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert. “I have to do that to maintain my well being. The things that I heard that were on Twitter are not accurate. But I completely support people coming out and being able to have a voice because they didn’t have a voice for so long. So I don’t want to shut them down in any way.”
