Reginae was one of the original members of the ATL based girl group The OMG Girlz when the group first started out. However, with the age differences between the girls, she decided to part ways a few years back.

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.
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.
Mase may be one confusing person as he goes from rapper, to preacher and back to rapper, but he may just have a new hit on his hands this time around. The former Bad Boy artist recently premiered the music video for his new single “Nothing” featuring Eric Bellinger on Revolt TV. The leading lady for this video is none other than Basketball Wives: LA star Malaysia Pargo. In the video Mase gives praises to all of the independent women out there who can hold their own and who don’t need any assistance from any man. There recently has been speculation that the two may actually be dating, especially since both recently split from their spouses. However, what could have been strictly for this music video may have been blown out of content. Nonetheless, the new single is definitely catchy.
