While Frank Ocean may never fully embrace the celebrity spotlight he has made some recent strides that should be commended. He explains why he is opening up in a new magazine feature.

As spotted on Complex the New Orleans Native covers the February edition of GQ. As part of the yearly music issue he provides some context behind some of his most recent moves specifically making his Instagram account public back in November. Being that the “Novacane” crooner is uber private this was a pretty big deal.

“I feel like there was dissonance between how I was seen by the audience and where I was actually, so that contributed to the decision to make my Instagram public, for sure,” he explained. “But there’s also the idea of dialogue and discourse and conversation—like theater where the audience can interrupt you versus the television.”

When asked to provide examples of the perceived disconnect he pointed to his overall public perception that in his mind couldn’t be farther from reality. “That dissonance—the word being a big container for what I was feeling…the way I was seen was not even close to correct. It’s still not correct, either.”

He also details how moving to New York City is going. “I like it a lot because I spend more time at the house. I think it comes from living in hotels, but when I’m in L.A., I find myself in my car a lot.… Which is stress. In New York, it’s the first time in a minute that I’ve had my own space that’s not a hotel and not some rented home, where everything around me is mine, and that’s been really cozy and comfortable this past year.”

The same day, reports emerged about Future and other celebs making serious bank for New Year’s Eve parties.

We’re told Nicki and Weezy will be performing at LIV Nightclub in Miami and for their appearance, they’re collecting a total of $250k between the two. If you think that’s low, you’re right because it is. We’re told the rappers are super tight with the owner, David Grutman, so they didn’t ask for their top rate. Future’s making out like a king out in Vegas. He’s performing at Drai’s and will pocket a sweet $400k check for grabbing the mic and doing his thing. (TMZ)

Whoa dere… #Cassie #Diddy

A post shared by SOHH (@sohhdotcom) on

According to reports, the mystery man is reportedly a fitness trainer.

The dude in question has reportedly been identified as fitness and health guru Alex Fine. As if the name isn’t enough … he’s also a natural born stud. And, now … Cassie’s into him. Interestingly enough, Cassie was seen with Diddy shortly after Kim Porter died last month … which sparked rumors they might be rekindling their 10-year relationship following their October split. (TMZ)

In November, Cass and ex-boyfriend Diddy briefly reunited after he lost his ex-girlfriend Kim Porter.

Seeking solace in a familiar face. Diddy and ex-girlfriend Cassie were spotted leaving The Movement Institute in Los Angeles together one day after the death of his ex Kim Porter. The Four star, 49, and the “Me & U” singer, 32, were both dressed casually on Friday, November 16, with Diddy in a blue hoodie that read “Do the right thing” and red basketball shorts. Cassie, meanwhile, wore a black oversized hoodie, leggings and sneakers. (Us Weekly)

Kanye West Drags Drake for Following Kim Kardashian on Instagram

The Kanye West and Drake saga continues after Drizzy allegedly followed Kim Kardashian on Instagram.

Kanye wrote in a since-deleted tweet, “I never knew till this morning that Drake followed my wife on Instagram back in September.” But, that wasn’t it … he went on, “I had to bring this up because it’s the most f-ked up thing of all and I just saw it this morning.”

If you recollect, Ye accused the Scorpion rapper of threatening him and his family.

Although it doesn’t seem like that big of a deal, it’s understandable with Kanye feels a way about the situation. After Drake released “In My Feelings,” people began assuming he had sexual relations with the beauty mogul. He didn’t deny it and didn’t ramp things down after taking shots at Ye on “Sicko Mode.”

In the latest Twitter rant, Kanye West added, “Imagine having a problem with somebody and they follow your wife on Instagram. We truly wish this man the best and pray that he will find the same happiness that we have.  Love everyone.”

Stop Lying: Instagram Says Lame Update Was A “Bug”, Twitter Suspects The Jig

Twitter Reacts To Instagram's Terrible Update

Source: picture alliance / Getty

Instagram almost died today, the cause a ridiculous update no one asked for. The popular photo-sharing social media platform rolled out a new update that no one liked and quickly rolled it back and blamed it on a “bug.” Twitter found that assertion hard to believe.

All we really want is chronological feed, but instead, the folks at the now Facebook-owned Instagram felt the need to change the way we peruse through our timelines. You usually view photos by scrolling, the update changed that to a Tinder-like swiping feature and users let Instagram know this ain’t it chief swiftly on Twitter.

The outrage seemingly worked, and Instagram quickly rolled back the update and announced via its official Twitter account that some users feed was affected by a “bug.”

Twitter isn’t buying the excuse due to the fact there was an introduction page bringing users up to speed about the new update resulting in people wondering what kind of “bug” does that? We’re not buying it either and believe the folks at IG were testing the feature and saw no one liked the new feed and decided instead of suffering the same fate as Snapchat to just revert to back to the old feed.

We are sure Instagram learned a valuable lesson today, and that is if it ain’t broke, don’t try to fix it. You can peep the fallout from Instagram’s failed update below.

Dame Dash turned heads after accusing veteran music executive Lyor Cohen of being a culture vulture, which the former Dej Jam major player rebuffed in his typically brash fashion. Funkmaster Flex took up for Cohen in a recent Instagram post, calling Dash a liar in the process.

“Dame Dash built an amazing brand (The Roc) with Biggs and JayZ! I have a tremendous amount of respect for him as an entrepreneur! I 1,000 percent understand his cockiness,” Flex wrote in the caption for an Instagram photo of Dash and Cohen.

Flex added, “He’s self made and I know u wouldn’t believe me but Jayz would have never been noticed without Dame! But in 2018 I refuse to join the cheerleading squad with Dame in the slander! Without the DefJam machine Roccafella would have died in the wind! Roccafella was being distributed though PAYDAY/FREEZE/SLEEPINGBAG/PRIORITY RECORDS(GOOGLE IT)before DefJam!!!!”

Flex continued, “Jayz would have been another great mc that faded into obscurity if he stayed in that situation! Dame made a lot of money with Lyor! All great partnerships always come to and end! Jayz went his separate way cause Dame didn’t adapt to the fact he needed to refine his personality! No one can remove u if u stay in tune to the surroundings! @duskopoppington I love u dearly my Brother… u helped me in 96 when my back was against the wall… But you are a LIAR…”

Dash responded to the rant, asking Funkmaster Flex to take the conversation offline.

Meek Mill Says Nicki Minaj Has Him Blocked on Instagram

Meek Mill conducted another #AskMeek Q&A on Twitter to help him pass time on a “long ride.” One of the most notable revelations of the session was that his ex-girlfriend, Nicki Minaj, has him blocked on Instagram.

According to the Philly emcee, he found out when he went on her page to check out her new boyfriend, Kenneth Petty.

It was just last month when Meek addressed her lyrics on the Queen cut, “Barbie Dreams” that suggested that he still shoots his shot. “I definitely wasn’t in nobody’s DMs,” he said. “And definitely wasn’t nobody ducking me, sh*t. That’s a fact… I actually was laughing at it, too. ‘Cause there’s no limits! I felt it and I liked it. That’s a dope rap.”

Meek Mill also opened up about some of the worst parts about being in jail like sleeping 3-feet away from a toilet.

He also dished on collaborations that he’s praying for.

Kanye West and Drake Drama Escalates After Alleged Threatens West’s Family

Kanye West and Drake have been at odds for a while now and things have clearly escalated, pun intended. Thursday night (Dec 13), Ye received a phone call from the 6th God in repose to his earlier Twitter rant and things didn’t go well. During the phone call, Drake alleged threaten Mr. West and his family. As a result, Kanye, again, used Twitter as ventilation.

In his newest rant, Kanye specified that if something were to happened to him that we should suspect it came from Drake. He insinuated that Drake is a fake gangster and that he paid people to attack Pusha T during his Toronto show. He stated that one of the guys is he hired is in critical condition. Kid Cudi’s mental state, 6ix9ine’s incarceration, XXXtentacion’s death, and Travis Scott and J. Prince came up as well. So far, this is the latest news, but we’ll continue to update you as things unfold.

Prior to that rant, he went on one earlier revealing preliminary issue he had with Drake before things got heated.

First, he tweeted a screenshot text message from Drake that requested clearance for sampling “Say You Will,” the song from Kanye’s 2008 album that Drake used to make “Say What’s Real.”

In addition to the picture, he tweeted “This proves s**t faker than wrestling” as his status. Next, he demanded an apology before going on a full rant about their dilemma.

Apparently, Kanye feels social media is the most effective way to reach him. According to Kanye, he had been wanting to handle things in person, but Drake refused to meet up for months. Kanye also reiterated that he didn’t assist Pusha T in discovering information on his son, which prompted his dis track “The Story of Adidon.”

Kanye assured that there’s no hatred towards the Canadian rapper, but warned him not to tamper with him and re-requested a personal apology.

He then acknowledged that this had troubled him for a long time, and addressed what actions pissed him at Pusha’s concert.

After tweeting a screenshot of a bible scripture from the first book of Peter, Ye finally achieved his goal in getting Drake to respond. But before he logged, he had it clear that he issued no clearance.

Previously, Kanye turned to Instagram with a series of videos discussing this same manner.

On September 20, Kanye condemned Drake for entertaining the idea of “Ke Ke” being wife Kim Kardashian West on “In My Feelings.” Also, West called out Drake for the unreleased song that Future previewed on his Snapchat in March of 2018. The song referenced his half-sisters-in-law, Kylie and Kendall Jenner.

Earlier that month, West went to Twitter to publicly apologize to Drake. In the tweets, he also addressed the beef between Drake, Pusha-T and Kid Cudi.

You Care: Nicki Minaj & Drake Don’t Follow Each Other On Instagram

Source: LAS VEGAS, NV – MAY 21: Recording artists Nicki Minaj and Drake attend the 2017 Billboard Music Awards at T-Mobile Arena on May 21, 2017 in Las Vegas, Nevada. (Photo by John Shearer/BBMA2017/Getty Images for dcp) Uploaded By Godspeed

It seems Nicki Minaj and Drake aren’t as social as they once were. The two have stopped following each other on Hip-Hop’s favorite social media tool.

As spotted on Hot New Hip-Hop the Young Money labelmates no longer are friendly on Instagram. Celebrity gossip account @TheShadeRoom took the time to verify and confirmed the disconnect.

Naturally this set off much speculation on what exactly caused the unfollows. The internets are pointing to Drizzy’s newly reignited bromance with Meek Mill as the possible reason. Neither has addressed the rumors but considering that Meek collaborated with Nicki’s former rival Cardi B on his recent Championships album maybe there is some truth to it.

While this came to many as a surprise this is not the first time Onika and Aubrey have put each other on pause. Back in 2013 he revealed they were not on speaking terms on “Tuscan Leather”. “Not even talkin’ to Nicki, communication is breakin’ / I dropped the ball on some personal sh*t, I need to embrace it / I’m honest, I make mistakes, I’d be the second to admit it / Think that’s why I need her in my life, to check me when I’m tripping”.

Chances are the two will make up eventually but in the meantime Christmas gifts seem out of the question.
