Sometimes controversy surprises and dominates it’s prey while other times controversy becomes desired or is perhaps even the goal of anything/anyone thirsty to be noticed. We’ve seen it work before- controversy eleveates an event, a product or even art to a hyped-level all due to squabbling or discussion. Brace yourself, the new move “Dear White People” doesn’t hit theaters until October, but is already making headlines and stirring up those sometimes awkward conversations about race that are perhaps now too important to avoid. In fact, it seems by the trailer that this movie is ready to tackle those questions head on!
“Dear White People” follows four black students as they navigate racial dynamics at their Ivy League college, Winchester University. The film seems to tackle every stereotype, old and new, while maintaining a moving storyline. The clip doesn’t shy away from controversy, as the climax comes with one white character asking: “How would you feel if someone started a Dear Black People?”
The film was met with tremendous acclaim at film festivals across the globe. Let’s hope the buzz pays off! See the must watch trailer below…
Chaka Khan long ago cemented her place in music history. The vocal goddess has a celebrated catalogue of soulful hits and continues to vocally impress while maintaining respectable focus within the public eye. Last week the singer took the the infamous purple couch to chat with Wendy Williams in celebration of Wendy’s 50th birthday. Surprise, things got juicy fast! It seems Ms. Khan was ready to spill the tea in honor of the talk show host’s milestone day.
From the drought in her sex life to admitting there are some songs she just can’t stand singing anymore Chaka bravely declared some truth during the birthday celebration. The singer also spoke on her recent stint in rehab and gave some incredibly intriguing insight to her connection to Lindsay Lohan. In what seemed like a liberating conversation the songbird seemed quite comfortable and most certainly looked phenomenal. Press play on the interview below to see Chaka unfiltered…
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.
Yesterday Angie Martinez shocked everyone as she resigned from famed hip hop radio station Hot 97 in New York City. As a listener and fan of Angie, like many I wasn’t too sure of her next move immediately following her announcement, but her next move would quickly be revealed. This morning rival radio station Power 105.1 announced that Angie Martinez would be joining their radio lineup from 2pm-6pm starting in mid July. As a New Yorker, I’ve witnessed the “beef” between the two stations, so things are only going to become more interesting from here on out.

Chris Brown is in rehab and he’s still making the headlines! First he drops a new song, Loyal; then TMZ reports that his probation in the Rihanna case has been revoked, and today we find out Karrueche Tran, Draya Michelle, Meagan Good, Christina Milian, and Adrienne Baillon have teamed up for a new anti-bullying campaign called Be You! Something tells me, knowing black twitter, this will somehow have the opposite effect.
