Drake, I must admit, did a GREAT job as host of the 2014 ESPY Awards, in fact I think this year’s show was one of the best ESPY Awards to date. His opening jokes were funny, he finally got a kiss from Skylar Diggins, plus his skits created a buzz across social media one of which featured Chris Brown, and Blake Griffin.
Yes! The battle of the lights is finally over, Drake and Chris Brown have gone from bottle tossing beefs in the club to BFFs…And I Luv it.
Check out the skit below and watch as Blake Griffin and Chris Brown kidnap Drake to steal his hosting job at the ESPYs.
Normally I think celebrity kids are off limits, except when they dress as white batman at a very high profile wedding. Jada and Will Smith’s middle child, Jaden Smith, is back in the news, and not for his super hero costumes, but with a new hilarious twist. The little Confucius is notorious for posting vague, deeply or not so deeply philosophical tweets to his page. So someone came up with a new hilarious meme called #tweetlikejadensmith. I’m sorry y’all but this meme is hilarious.
Continue reading below for more #tweetlikejadensmith tweets…Is this wrong? I can’t stop laughing long enough to process it.
With the success on Kickstarter for Burton’s mobile reboot of Reading Rainbow, raising $2 million in two days, it’s only logical to wonder what this new show’s theme song would look like. Luckily, Funny or Die came by to deliver their version of the new theme, which sounds like it was sung by the same person who did the original. The results are a little dark at times but still so very awesome because…well, like I said before, Geordi is awesome!
Levar Burton has been a true gem of awesome for as long as I have been alive. Whether it’s making reading awesome in Reading Rainbow or making cybernetic visor glasses awesome in Star Trek (even though
I’m all for reaching the people where they’re at, and adding some hip-hop into the mix to reach the Millennials, after all I grew up on hip-hop, -BUT- when I saw this clip of Pastor Jamal Bryant on my Facebook timeline, preaching from the pulpit and reciting the infamous chorus from Chris Brown’s hit, “These h*s aint’ loyal,” I think I may have passed out for a minute.
First off, he could’ve used the radio version of the song, and secondly, it just doesn’t take all of that to get God’s word across, IMHO. I think I’ve watched this clip a thousand times now, just looking at the audience and their reaction. While most people were praising to the most high God, there was this one woman in the front row (:21 second mark) that
Seems like it would be a good thing to have a celebrity crash your wedding, especially if the celebrity is Serena Williams, but perhaps not in a leopard leotard swimsuit…that will upstage the bride. Well…actually that’s still pretty cool. This South Beach couple will certainly have memories and something to talk about on their wedding anniversary, especially when they look back and see pictures like this one.
Yes this is real, Serena Williams and her butt cheeks crashed this couples wedding in Miami, and posted about on Instagram. More pics when you continue reading below:
So when cast members complained about dressing in drag to play black women due to the fact that SNL’s cast lacked diversity, the show answered the call by hiring two new black female writers. We’ve already met Sasheer Zamata, but Saturday night Leslie Jones stepped from behind the scenes onto the camera. Who knew a black woman could spark so much outrage joking about slavery?
I’m just saying that back in the slave days, my love life would have been way better…Massah would have hooked me up with the best brotha on the plantation. … I would be the No. 1 slave draft pick. All of the plantations would want me.
During a segment on The Weekend Update, Leslie Jones jokes that it’s hard for her to find a man today because she’s six feet tall and a strong looking black woman. However in the days of slavery, she would have been high in demand because she’s built like a Mandingo, which is great for breeding. She goes on to joke that she would have popped out well bred kids like Shaquille O’Neal, Kobe Bryant, and LeBron James for the master.
Now I’m not outraged, and I actually find humor in the skit. I am however a little put-off by the way Leslie Jones characterizes her beauty. It’s kind of hard to laugh at someone’s insecurities. I think the jokes are a little too honest for the SNL viewers, and that’s why many people are so upset because it’s not like it’s the first time that SNL has taken on slavery in a comedy sketch. Check out the video below and let me know what you think…
