A compilation of some great lyrics from Views by Drake. If it weren’t for the twitter beef last year with Meek Mill we may have never had Views today.
Over the weekend Beyonce dropped her album ‘Lemonade.’ In it she throws SHOTS at Jay-Z about their marriage. This has been the quote heard around the world since it came out.
Often we don’t put politicians in the same category as celebrities but this election, if never before, is the time to do so. Billionaire, reality television star Donald Trump is running for president. I remember Donald Trump from the hit television show Celebrity Apprentice. I thought he was just a successful businessman with a hard attitude also not to mention he has a beautiful daughter, Ivanka Trump. (Yes, I know he has five kids but my obsession with Ivanka is real.)
This picture to the left doesn’t even do her justice. But anyway, this election has become a media frenzy storm. Candidates now all use twitter to communicate with their constituents whether its to pump them for rallies, or address a situation quickly everyone’s on twitter.
That’s just a glimpse of what some of the candidates are saying on twitter. So, your probably wondering why am I even writing about this? Well, Donald Trump has been VERY active on twitter bashing his competition. To the point that they have even had to respond with the same type of attitude. However Donald Trump’s active twitter issues are not limited to just his opponents. For example, last year he got into a fight with Modern Family writer Danny Zuker. Zuker called Trump out for talking badly about China when he has items that have “made in China” stitched into them.
Trump responded with: “Danny — You’re a total loser!”
Zuker: “Your insults need work. Here’s one I’ve been working on: “Every picture you post of yourself is a d*ck pic.” See?”
And soooo…they went back and forth. Mainly Trump calling Zuker stupid, easy, and pathetic while also trying to point out that China is economically ruining the United States and our leaders are helpless. Zuker just pointed out that Trump is a hypocrite. Then Trump took to the televsion…
“Just tried watching Modern Family – written by a moron, really boring.Writer has the mind of very dumb and backward child. Sorry Danny!”
Zuker was like okay this was rude but like of course why would you like my show? You’re racist, a hypocrite, and a multiple bankrupt. LOL kinda funny even if you don’t agree. So then Trump went on to say that Zuker is a lightweight moron who is only getting attention by attacking Trump. Zuker dismissed Trump saying he has better things to do basically.
So that’s just one fun twitter fight Donald Trump (possible next president of the US of A,) got into. Below check out some of his recent mean tweets talking about Ted Cruz and John Kasich.
I did not think I would have to re-visit Azealia Banks but here we are! The rapper….not known for any of her songs let’s be real…..has gotten into a nasty little argument on Twitter again. No, not with her favorite person to ridicule, Iggy Azalea, although she did mock her for suicidal thoughts.This time with American politician, former Governor of Alaska, Sarah Palin. Banks tweeted “Sarah Palin needs to have her hair shaved off to a buzz cut, get headfucked by a big, veiny, ashy, black dick then be locked in a cupboard.” The aggression didn’t end there she continued with “Hideous. At least suk a nigga dick or summ’ before you start talking shit about ‘black people willingly accepting slavery.’ Least she can do…. Honestly… Let’s find the biggest burliest negroes and let them run train on her. Film it and put it on Worldstar.” Azealia continued to tweet mean things about Sarah Palin basically calling her an idiot and irrelevant. Meanwhile…half the world thinks Azealia Banks is Iggy Azalea. *Those tweets have since been deleted.*
Sarah Palin took the classy approach. She posted a statement responding to Banks on her Facebook page.
“Hey Female Rapper – listen up, little darling. No one has any idea what you’re wigging out about in these bizarre, violent rants against me, but you’re obviously not exercising enough intelligence to acknowledge you’ve been sucked into believing some fake interview in which I supposedly offered comments representing the antithesis of my truth.
In this life, you’re blessed to have been given an influential platform. So have I. Why don’t we strengthen both our platforms and work together on something worthwhile – like condemning racism, along with empowering young women to defend themselves against a most misogynist, degrading, devastating assault perpetrated by evil men – rape.
Thanks. And now I’ll go through my young daughter’s playlist to make sure there hasn’t been any inadvertent addition of any anti-woman, pro-rape garbage that you seem to endorse, which perpetuates the cultural challenges we face in America. I encourage other parents to do the same.
God bless you Ms. Banks, as you consider a change of heart.” – Sarah Palin
This issue happened on April 5, 2016 and now just a week later Azealia Banks is back with aggressive twitter comments. She first calls out Kanye West and says that she no longer looks up to him, but looks passed him. THEN she starts flipping out on Wale (where has he been?) She goes on and on to talk about how black men don’t respect black woman how they should be and every other race does…
Note: most of these tweets were deleted after the fact.
As a half-black woman my only comment is that race will never not be an issue unless WE (meaning the black community) stop it within ourselves. By lumping all black men together, pitting light-skins versus dark-skins and everything else that is wrong with our race no one is making it better. You have to deal with every issue in the world at the core. Azealia Banks is not a role model. She’s just another ‘star’ (barely) who has enough of a following to get people to listen to her and retweet her tweets and to her I say:
EVENT ALERT: Celebrity Death Match Presents ‘Twitter Beef’ with Iggy Azalea – Join us in an exclusive talk about rapper Iggy Azalea. We will be discussing all of her iconic twitter beefs since 2011. We will also listen to her greatest hits. This is an event you don’t want to miss!!
Who is Iggy Azalea? A 25 year-old Australian rapper, songwriter, and model. She grabbed her fame after releasing YouTube videos for her songs “Pu$$y” and “Two Times”.
She signed a record contract with T.I.’s imprint Grand Hustle Records in 2012, after gaining attention from her debut mixtape Ignorant Art. Azalea’s debut studio album, The New Classic (2014) which featured songs such as “Fancy,” “Change Your Life,” featuring T.I., “Work,” and “Black Widow,” featuring Rita Ora just to name a popular few. People really have mixed reactions to Iggy Azalea. Mainly A LOT of people do not like her music whatsoever. But she is still very popular….
Most recently Iggy has been in a relationship with Los Angeles Lakers basketball player Nick Young (also known as Swaggy P) since November 2013 and in June 2015, they announced their engagement.
Last week a video was released and in it Nick Young admits to cheating on Iggy to a fellow teammate D’Angelo Russell. Iggy LOVES to tweet and that’s what we are here for anyway so in response to that she tweeted..
As far as their relationship…the engagement seems to still be on. Last night at the iHeart Radio Awards Iggy Azalea was seen sporting the huge engagement ring she received from the basketball player.
But besides Iggy Azalea’s rapping career and relationship she has also gained fame by getting into various twitter beefs. Check out a list of who below.
Azealia Banks- Another female rapper who has fought with Iggy Azalea countless times.
October 20, 2011: Azealia Banks tweets, “once wrote a song called ‘Barbie Shit,’ but nicki minaj blew up like the week after so i took it down, lololz. i felt corny. Also wrote a song called P-U-$-$-Y before Iggy Azalea.” Iggy writes a subtweet: “its NEVER been about who did it first… its ALWAYS been about who did it better.” Banks, uncharacteristically, doesn’t engage in the scrap, retweeting Iggy’s insult and writing back: “i know right?? lmfaooo. haha.”
December 2, 2011: Someone tweets, “Iggy Azealia Banks iz weird.” Banks responds, “We’re two COMPLETELY different people hun. :-\” Iggy doesn’t respond. (Iggy has never said Azealia’s name on Twitter.)
January 13, 2012: Iggy is asked about reports of problems with her and Azealia Banks: “I have no deal with her. I don’t know her personally. I said it about Kreayshawn, too. If I don’t know you personally, how could I have a problem with you? What would I have a problem about? I don’t know that person … I don’t know you. I truly don’t understand it. I just keep making my own music, and I’m deaf to that. What is there to say? Nothing.” Interestingly, Kreayshawn never said anything negative about Iggy, though the Australian rapper sometimes made, responded to, and retweeted statements that could be viewed as such.
January 17, 2012: Azealia Banks tweets, “Iggy Azalea’s hair looks really great in her new video. How long do you all reckon that hair is? 40″ in?” (Though this tweet is later deleted — all of Azealia’s early tweets are — a response remains.)
December 3, 2014: Azealia Banks tweets: “its funny to see people Like Igloo Australia silent when these things happen… Black Culture is cool, but black issues sure aren’t huh?” She also demands that people stop comparing Nicki Minaj and Iggy, as it’s belittling and degrading. Iggy responds: “we’ve all read the script 49584068408540 billion times now, find a new game plan.” This occurred while the Ferguson protests were going on.
December 18, 2014: Azealia Banks is on with Hot 97’s “Ebro in the Morning”, where she’s emotional about race relations in America; she feels blacks are being “erased” and “smudged [out]” from their own culture by interlopers such as Iggy and Macklemore (whom she feels are in no way better than any black kid trying to make music today).
December 19, 2014: Iggy gets on Twitter and calls Banks “poisonous,” and a “bigot” who lacks the “mental capacity” to realize her situation. Adding that Banks’s lack of success is because of her “piss-poor attitude,” not because she’s black. But Iggy implores her to “Make it racial! make it political! Make it whatever but I guarantee it won’t make you likable & THATS why ur crying on the radio.”
Rah Digga – A female rapper.
September 24, 2014: Rah Digga says in an interview, “Don’t come to America and try to convince me that you’re Gangsta Boo … Personally, I don’t consider [Iggy] Hip Hop. I listen to her album. Everything that I hear on there is everything but that. And I feel like Hip Hop is Hip Hop.”
Iggy responds with a subtweet: “I honestly don’t really mind if I’m described as rap or pop. My passion is purely making music and entertaining.”
Snoop Dogg – Rapper.
October 12, 2014: Snoop Dogg posts a picture of an albino woman on Instagram. “Iggy Azalea No Make Up,” says the caption. She responds on Twitter, accusing him of acting one way in person and another way online. And then he posts a bunch of pictures of White Chicks and vague pimpish threats, and then she posts a bunch of things — including a picture of Snoop as “your drug addict aunt [after getting] clean” — and it’s all stupid until TI gets on the phone with Snoop.
October 15, 2014: Snoop apologizes to TI.
October 27, 2014: While walking through LAX, Snoop is asked if he’d ever work with Iggy, now that the beef is over. He sings the hook to Big Sean’s “IDFWU.”
Iggy made fun of this beef by dressing up as the girls from White Chicks on Halloween!
Eminem – Rapper.
November 18, 2014: Eminem makes jokes about raping Iggy on a new song, “Vegas.” Iggy tweets, “im bored of the old men threatening young women as entertainment trend and much more interested in the young women getting $ trend. zzzz.”
Steve Madden – A Company
January 30, 2015: Iggy angrily tweets about some unapproved Steve Madden pictures, TI tells Iggy (via TMZ) to “stop responding to the haters” on Twitter.
Papa John’s – A Pizza Company
February 8, 2015: A Papa John’s deliveryman gives Iggy’s private cell-phone number out to his family members. Iggy begins calling out the pizza chain on Twitter, and when the brand responds with insufficient seriousness, she threatens legal action: “I don’t think data breach is funny. I expect you to contact me to explain how you are going to rectify your breach of my personal information in a satisfactory and professional way or lawsuit will be filed.”
February 18, 2015: Iggy announces she’s “taking some time away from social media.” “I need to be happy and it is too negative and draining,” she explains. Iggy says her management team will now update all of her social-media accounts.
A little over a year later Iggy is back on social media and is still upset with how people use it. Check out her most recent tweets today.
I wanted to wait to write this blog post until all the drama calmed down. Now I’m writing it with a somewhat heavy heart because it turned so ugly, so quickly. Let’s introduce the players to this not necessarily beef but huge mess between 3 celebs.
Kehlani: A twenty year old R&B singer from Oakland, California. Most popular songs are “Did I?” and “You Should Be Here.”
Kyrie Irving: A twenty-four year old basketball player for the Cleveland Cavaliers.
PARTYNEXTDOOR: A twenty-two year old singer, songwriter, record producer and rapper who is signed to Drake’s OVO Sound record label.
Now, this brings me to the background. Kehlani and PartyNextDoor used to date but last year called things off. PND recorded a song called “Kehlani’s Freestyle” that confirmed the breakup, and featured PND speaking frankly about his failures as a boyfriend. Months later there were rumors circulating that Kehlani had started dating Irving. These rumors were confirmed after a Valentine’s Day post on Kehlani’s Instagram.
The reason this is all being brought up now is because this Monday PND posted an Instagram below:
With the caption “After all her shenanigans, still got the r&b singer back in my bed.” The hand tattoo is very clearly Kehlani’s.
This brought a lot of questions. Is Kehlani dating Kyrie? Is she cheating on Kyrie? Is she back with PND? Is PND being spiteful? Is it an old picture or new?
And of course the social media world BLEW UP. People were attacking Kehlani for being a cheater and making all types of jokes at Kyrie Irving. I even joined in by claiming I was part of the #KehlaniHive because we don’t know anything! Who knows what was going on with Kehlani so I chose to show my support. However, the story does not end here.
Late Monday night Kehlani posted a photo to her Instagram, which has since been deleted, with a caption that implied she had tried to take her own life.
She also posted the following picture:
This just makes the entire story sketchy. We don’t know what is going on with Kehlani but she’s not in the best state and apparently PND is the one who is there for her. I’ve since deleted my posts about how I was #KehlaniHive because the girl obviously needs her privacy. Sticky situation but this is what Hollywood entails.
The last and only Instagram post on Kehlani’s page right now is this one:
We can only hope for the best for Kehlani!
Feel free to comment with your thoughts on this whole story.
Kim Kardashian strikes AGAIN! Last night the wife of Kanye West posted a basically nude photo with the caption “When you’re like I have nothing to wear LOL”
It’s actually not funny Kim and so the internet hit her back with some fierce comments. When Kim decided to read them she claimed she was “Reading my comments like….LOL” Except CLEARLY some of them struck a nerve because the video-game creator responded to Chloe Grace Moretz, Bette Midler and Piers Morgan.
-Piers Morgan: “I know the old man’s $50 million in debt, Kim – but this is absurd. Want me to buy you some clothes?”
-Response from Kim K: “hey @piersmorgan never offer to buy a married woman clothes. thats on some ashley madison type shit #forresearch”
-Bette Midler: “Kim Kardashian tweeted a nude selfie today. If Kim wants us to see a part of her we’ve never seen, she’s gonna have to swallow the camera.” (Solid example below.)
-Response from Kim K: “hey @BetteMidler I know it’s past your bedtime but if you’re still up and reading this send nudes #justkidding” “hey @BetteMidler I really didn’t want to bring up how you sent me a gift awhile back trying to be a fake friend then come at me #dejavu”
-Chloe Grace Moretz (after re-tweeting Bette Midler’s tweet): “@KimKardashian I truly hope you realize how important setting goals are for young women, teaching them we have so much more to offer than-” “@KimKardashian – just our bodies.” “There’s a huge difference in respecting the platform that you’re given as a celebrity and “slut shaming” something I never have done and -“”- would never do.”
-Response from Kim K: “let’s all welcome @ChloeGMoretz to twitter, since no one knows who she is. your nylon cover is cute boo”
All of a sudden it seemed as though maybe Kanye had swiped Kim’s phone to respond to these tweets. Piers Morgan even thought so: “Fairly sure @kanyewest just seized control of @KimKardashian’s phone.” The judge of American’s Got Talent also tweeted: “I’ve got this @BetteMidler – relax. cc @KimKardashian”
After a GIF of Kim K ‘sipping tea’ she posted another basically nude photo with the caption “liberated.”She also was offended that people thought it wasn’t her tweeting from her account: “Wait I can’t believe people thought Kanye or Khloe hacked my Twitter. swear I’m funny too!!!”
NO KIM YOU ARE NOT FUNNY It ALSO happens to be International Women’s Day today.
I’m standing with Chloe Grace Moretz on this one. Kim K is a disgrace to women and I hope young girls around this country have other women they can look to as inspiration other than her. The Kardashians and their plastic surgery are what’s wrong with this world today.
