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.
Comedian Katt Williams has developed quite a riveting reputation in Hollywood. No one can deny that the man has jokes- crazy, wild comedy skills and has played to massive audiences across the world. Talent is certainly not Katt’s problem, his temper seemingly is. His track record isn’t the finest if you relive his past and last night saw the comedian perhaps even outdo himself. According to reports, Katt Williams drew a gun on someone at the Comedy Store in West Hollywood Tuesday night triggering a 911 emergency that ended with deputies racing to the scene with guns drawn.
Reportedly, Katt was being heckled by a bystander, throwing slurs at Williams over his height and race. Katt was not on stage when the heckling and subsequent gun-pilling went down. Eyewitness reports say Katt went ham!
In response, reportedly a slew of cop cars raced to the Sunset Strip and deputies pointed shot guns and bean bag guns at the club as they prepared for a confrontation. Consequently, Mr. Williams had already bounced from the premises. No arrests have officially been made.
We will continue to follow this story at details unfold…
Zendaya Coleman has a lot going for her. She has a hit television show, has made a respectably applaudable dent into the world of pop music, is a gifted dancer and is a rising name in the world of fashion. At the time, it most likely seemed like an amazing opportunity to land the role of Aaliyah in the much anticipated biopic yet the good news lasted shortly. Soon after the news broke of Zendaya’s contribution to the film the disdain for the casting choices and the production of the film in general spread like wildfire. Online protests and campaign were funded and the hate was palpable. It was just announced that Zendaya has backed out of the project.
According to a rep for the Disney Channel actress, Coleman is “no longer involved in the project,” which Lifetime is set to produce and air. Furthermore, reports state productions for the film is entirely on hold.
Adding fuel to the fire Lifetime released a statement earlier today outlining their regret in Zendaya’s decision stating, “We are sad Zendaya will no longer portray Aaliyah.”
In the end, it seems like Ms. Coleman made the right decision. At 17, she has a million more opportunities to come her way. The tipping point was most likely Aaliyah’s family who publicly shared their contempt of the casting choices and production. All eyes remain on Zendaya as we track her next move and see if this biopic will come to fruition.

A proper fan of Keyshia Cole can always be sure to expect two things: crazy good music and crazy good drama. For a minute it seemed the singer had finally was on track, family drama had subsided and she seemed to be forming a sturdy family of her own. Fast forward to today- things seem to be imploding!
Reports surfaced today saying Keyshia Cole is officially pulling the plug on her marriage to ex-NBA player Daniel “Boobie” Gibson just 3 months after revealing they were taking a break. Sources close to the singer are reporting that she’s already drawn up divorce papers and is looking to file them any day now.
The divorce will also complicate the guardianship of their 4-year-old son.
Let’s hope things remain mature and both Keyshia and Daniel work things out. If anything, all this drama will hopefully fuel some crazy good new music.
