The Lifetime network is having a rather horrible summer. The longstanding network has been in a media storm- and the press and public have been anything but kind. Earlier in the month when news broke that Zendaya was cast in the Lifetime produced biopic of the late singer Aaliyah the network and Zendaya were pummeled with disdain and negative press. Fast forward to a week ago, soon after the network announced their plans of producing a Whitney Houston biopic things turned ugly again. This time the family of the deceased star were the unhappy ones. Whitney’s daughter Bobbi Kristina stuck her claws into Director Angela Bassett last week yet she is now retracting and apologizing.
Bassett, who is set to make her directorial debut with the unauthorized Lifetime telepic, said she hadn’t considered casting Bobbi Kristina in the role of her mother because “she’s not an actress.” Truth is, the 20-year-old, who made her acting debut on an episode of Tyler Perry’s for Better or Worse, and used social media to call Bassett a “bitc*”.
After some significant backlash this weekend Bobbi took to twitter to apologize. ”I’m a young woman who can admit her wrongs,” Brown tweeted. “4who was offended I apologize BUT understand me before your quick to judge though.”
Reportedly, the Houston family still plans to try and cease production on the film. And with that, it seems like the drama will continue…
Tales of drama, shade and catfights are still dominating discussions days after Sunday’s high-rated BET Awards. A huge hit on Twitter, the awards inspired more than 11 million tweets yet no moment in the show garnered more attention on social media then Nicki Minaj and her now infamous acceptance speech after receiving the trophy for Best Female Hip-Hop Artist at Sunday’s show. One specific quote in the speech sparked the fire.While accepting the award Minaj declared, “…when you hear Nicki Minaj spit, Nicki Minaj wrote it. No shade.” Today Minaj took to Twitter in an attempt to extinguish the drama.
Many were reading the quote as a direct blow to fellow nominee and rapper Iggy Azalea.
Ranting on Twitter today, Nicki eloquently set the record straight. Check out her tweets below:
With all that said, any press is good press and rumor is we are days away from receiving a new Minaj album. Her tribute to Missy Elliot and Lauryn Hill seem incredibly genuine and her words to Iggy seem sincere. Hopefully this feud will die out soon so these ladies can get back to creating incredible rhymes.
If you recall, last week Jimmy Kimmel featured a spoof on his show about Kanye West and his BBC interview. Jimmy used a couple of kids in his reenactment and made a kinda funny clip from a portion of what Kanye said. Well, after that aired, Kanye proceeded to go onto Twitter and get into beef with Jimmy, mainly because he felt like Jimmy was making fun of Kanye for being transparent.
Well, the two are actually friends in real life and Kanye agreed to be on the show, to talk about what happened and to clear the air. The interview is full of moments of some heavy tension but I think by the end, you can see that they’re both glad to get this behind them. Check out the entire interview below:
During a recent trip Zurich, Switzerland to celebrate Tina Turner’s nuptials, Oprah stopped by the high end store Trois Pommes to shop. When asked to see the exclusive Tom Ford “Jennifer” bag worth over $38,100 in the display case –three times, Oprah was told by the sales clerk that the Tom Ford bag was too expensive for her, and was then offered some alternative bags that were more suited for her taste.
Granted Oprah may not have looked like Oprah at the time, Oprah still feels like racism was a factor. The store owner, however, denies those allegations and instead claims there was a language barrier. How many black American go to Trois Pommes in Switzerland, and if they’re in Switzerland to shop, they probably have some money, NO?
Anyway, check out the details according to Ms. Winfrey via The Gossip Wrap-Up.
A few days ago when Revolt TV published their interview with Timbaland, I have to say that I agreed that he has a special bond with Aaliyah‘s music and no one has really made it work as well as he did. But now he seems to be regretting some of his statements, as he took to Twitter to tweet his apologies to Chris Brown. Check out the tweets (read from the bottom up):
Didn’t he just pen an apology song not long ago to Jay Z? I wonder what’s up with him and all the apologies…anyway, what do you guys think? Should he have apologized for his statements or was it just his right to express how he feels, unapologetically?
A couple of days ago, a clip went viral on the internet of Lil Wayne shooting a video for the song God Bless Amerika. In the video, Wayne steps all over the American flag as he performs for the scene. That didn’t sit well with a lot of people and he’s been experiencing backlash ever since. But this morning Lil Wayne tried to address it, by insisting that it wasn’t intentional.
I mean, I get that it probably wasn’t intentional but once the flag dropped, you mean to tell me you couldn’t feel it under your feet? Or when you glanced down you didn’t see it and think it get off? I actually think he didn’t mean to but didn’t see it as a big deal, and is now doing some back pedaling. Check out the video in question and tell me what you think:
