Travis Scott & Colin Kaepernick Spoke Before Securing Super Bowl Halftime Set

travis-scott

Houston rapper Travis Scott tried to do the right thing before confirming his appearance at next month’s Super Bowl LIII halftime show. New reports claim Cactus Jack and Black Lives Matter activist and NFL free agent Colin Kaepernick spoke.

According to reports, Scott told Kaep he would only agree to perform for the NFL after getting confirmation on a charity donation.

Scott and Kaepernick had at least one phone conversation before the rapper confirmed his Super Bowl appearance, sources tell Variety. A source close to Scott said that while the two did not necessarily agree, they emerged from the conversation with mutual respect and understanding, with the rapper taking the stance that everyone makes a statement in their own way and he felt that the money going toward Dream Corps, combined with the platform provided by the Super Bowl, will do some good. The source also said that Scott would not confirm his performance until the donation was locked in. (Variety)

This week, Hot 97 radio veteran Ebro Darden singled Scott out for accepting a $500,000 charity donation in exchange for his performance.

Last weekend, reports emerged about Scott’s Super Bowl halftime deal.

Travis Scott today announced that in partnership with the National Football League, he will make a $500,000 donation to the non-profit organization Dream Corps, among “other initiatives that he will work with the League on.” The move is clearly designed to counter criticism over his appearance at the Super Bowl halftime show with Maroon 5 — which was finally confirmed, after weeks of speculation, precisely 30 minutes after Scott announced the donation on Sunday. (Variety)

A few days ago, halftime performers Maroon 5 announced OutKast’s Big Boi would also join in on the festivities.

YG Says Get Ready: “F**K DONALD TRUMP 2 BOMING SOON”

YG Michael Jackson Video

West Coast rapper YG is still on his “FDT” wave. The hip-hop veteran went to social media this week to hint at plans to drop a follow-up to his 2016 anti-Donald Trump anthem.

Last night, the hip-hop artist jumped on Twitter to get followers hyped about the new record.

Back in April 2016, YG and fellow California rapper Nipsey Hussle dropped their “FDT” music video.

In October, YG reached out to Donald supporter Kanye West about making a line of anti-Trump hats.

In 2017, rap star Eminem called out President Trump during a live show.

“Scotland might have to be our new home because right now sh*t ain’t going so well in the States. And I just want to take this moment right now to say motherf*ck Donald Trump.”

Nick Cannon Says It’s Bigger Than R. Kelly: “The Groupies After The Shows”

Nick Cannon

Hollywood star Nick Cannon wants people to think bigger than R. Kelly. The hip-hop artist stepped forward this week to address the industry’s dark side and horrendous secret treatment toward women.

During an appearance with radio personality Big Boy, Nick didn’t bite his tongue on explaining why Kelly is just one of many guilty celebs.

“I was the first person to step up. I wrote a post and did a podcast saying I’m going to apologize because I feel like I am guilty. I am guilty for turning a blind eye not just to R. Kelly but to all men in this industry and treating women like second-class citizens has to stop – let’s not have this selective outrage. That’s why I called out a lot of other individuals whose lawyers started contacting me. Why your lawyers contacting me if it’s not true? I’m not out here passing out rumors and stuff, I’m bringing up stuff y’all forgot about because of the timign. We look at the age of the rock star. If you go back and look at some of these movies. They were doing such horrendous things to young girls and it was praised. The groupies after the shows and what they’re doing.” (Big Boy TV)

Last week, Cannon shared his past “Giglo” collaboration and shared deep words on the Kelly situation.

#TBT After much self reflection and meditation, I have to be one of the first to admit that in my past I’ve DEFINITELY turned a blind eye to a lot of darkness in this industry. Let’s stop beating around the bush and call it what it is. This entire industry was established and built by evil and predatorily spirits and male chauvinistic behavior. And since the recent media outrage pertaining to @RKELLY I have realized that the REAL issue at hand is the ultimate lack of care and disrespect for our QUEENS. For far too long we have treated women like second class citizens, when in actuality they are the source, our core, and the Superior beings. But our insecurities, Egos, and lack of love has tried to prove otherwise. Therefore we have SEVERAL cases where we allow entertainers, executives, and every day individuals abuse and mistreat our life bearers and beautiful equals. It is no secret how men have misused their power to manipulate young emerging pop stars to seasoned hollywood actresses and everyone in between. I have personally witnessed it and will no longer be silent about it. It’s not dry snitching, it’s a paradigm shift. I’m not judging ANY man for his past or his private actions because I too am a guilty sinner of the blatant disrespect even in some of the statements in the song above. But From Individuals like Les Moonves, Harvey Weinstein, ‪Elvis and others, I must say we have to deal with this sickness head on. The real leaders and Bosses must step up and be MEN! And I will be one of the first to say on behalf of all men, I am Sorry. Please consider an advocate, ally and student that needs guidance in an industry that was designed to take advantage of women. Let’s change it ALL immediately. And call it all to the table for our ignorance, wrong doings and disrespect. I apologize my Queens.

Bhad Bhabie Secures Nearly $1 Mil W/ New Endorsement Deal

Bhad Bhabie

Rap newcomer Bhad Bhabie is really leveling up. New reports claim the hip-hop artist secured nearly $1 million with a beauty endorsement deal.

According to reports, BB is becoming the face of a cosmetics line for half of 2019.

Sources close to Danielle tell TMZ … she just signed a six-month deal with CopyCat Beauty, which will pay her $900,000 to promote their beauty and makeup products. As if $900k off the bat ain’t enough, we’re told Danielle will also rake in a percentage of the company’s sales. If Danielle’s endorsements bring in a ton of dough during the next 6 months, we’re told she could extend the deal for another 3 years and possibly get her own beauty line! (TMZ)

Last week, Bhabie released her new Tory Lanez-featured “Babyface Savage” music video.

Back in November, West Coast rapper Snoop Dogg took BB’s side in her Iggy Azalea beef.

Bhad Bhabie gangsta. That was real white. That was quite white. [Iggy] sounded real buster ‘ish. Bhad Bhabie gets a point”

Days prior, both BB and Iggy addressed the headline-generating altercation.

Mariah Carey Secret Video Recordings Doing “Embarrassing” Things Could Leak

mariah-carey-beyonce

R&B singer Mariah Carey is ready to take some serious legal action against a former personal assistant she hired. New reports claim an ex-employee secretly recorded her doing embarrassing things and threatened to release the clips unless Carey paid $8 million.

According to reports, Carey filed a lawsuit against Lianna Azarian nearly four years after hiring her as an executive assistant.

Mariah claims it wasn’t long before Azarian went to town with her credit card, buying personal stuff and also claiming to retailers she was buying things for Mariah, trading the singer’s goodwill to get deep discounts. Carey says unbeknownst to her, Azarian was secretly filming her “personal activities” … which would be “embarrassing,” and extremely damaging both personally and professionally if revealed. (TMZ)

Mariah claims Lianna ultimately promised to sell the footage if she received the pink slip.

Carey claims she was paying Azarian as much as $327,000 a year, but ended up firing her in November 2017, and that’s when she claims the blackmail began. Carey says Azarian demanded $8 million and if she didn’t get it she’d release videos and other damaging information. The lawsuit does not say what’s on the videos … although some are described as “intimate.” (TMZ)

Earlier this month, Carey made jaws drop by unloading a slew of bikini pics.
