Just as we’ve had to remind our white brothers and sisters that Blackfaceis never okay in recent weeks, once again Black Twitter is giving lessons to that side of the map about appropriating the culture. A Twitter user who once got into it with Nicki Minaj fans used her vast platform to call out a disturbing trend of, in her words, white women “cosplaying” as Black women.
Writer @Wannas world opened up the discussion earlier this week with the tweet below:
Can we start a thread and post all of the white girls cosplaying as black women on Instagram? Let’s air them out because this is ALARMING.
From there, several examples of white women putting on a classier and less abrasive form of Blackface on for the masses. Other Twitter users chimed in with their disdain as well, and the unsavory practice has been dubbed “n*ggerfishing” on the social media network.
And now, a solid word from the great Vince Staples.
Niggerfishing is caucasians posing as black and beautifuls on social media. If we catch you in the streets niggerfishing we will jump you and take your social.
The world’s youngest billionaire, Kylie Jenner, showed us just how big billionaires do birthdays around here. For Kris Jenner’s 63rd birthday, Kylie surprised her mom with a new red 488 Ferrari.
Kris Jenner’s birthday is actually a little less than a week away falling on November 5th. Nonetheless, Kylie explained that she had purchased the Ferrari a little over a month ago and could wait no longer to gift it to her mother.
Kris’ reaction was pricelessly leaving her in tears. Yet, Kris was not the only one left in awe. Khloe Kardashian commented under Kylie’s post suggesting “I guess I’ll give her my gift later lol #ChessMateKylie”
Nicki Minajhad the Internet on fire last night (Oct. 29) after insinuating that Rah Ali was the one who gave Cardi B the massive knot on the side of her head and not security guards as originally stated. Cardi fired back at her rival via a series of epic Instagram video rants but it appears the ladies are calling a truce.
Before both women took the high road, there was plenty of mess and tea as the kids say, with Nicki making a series of claims and taking jabs at Cardi on Queens Radio where Tyga was a guest for the day. Everything from claims of bags getting stopped to petty gossip about song collabs that didn’t happen was discussed, including the now-infamous New York Fashion Week scuffle that was referenced at the top of this post.
Cardi was on fire last night and kept the pressure high on Nicki, almost daring for this beef to escalate to levels that neither artist should have been entertaining considering their level of fame and influence. In the end, however, Cardi appeared to agree with Nicki that they should end their beef and hopefully, that remains the last anyone hears of it.
Before the truce, there was a lot of chatter online and we’ve captured the reactions to all the happenings below, including a few parts of the IG rants.
Nicole Zavala made headlines recently after an alleged incident between her and injured Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Terrance Williams went down over the weekend. What little we have uncovered about the sultry model and fashion maven exists mostly on social media and she’s our latest Baes and Baddies entry.
From a little Internet digging, it appears that Zavala, who is in her mid-20s, got started as a model a few years ago and parlayed her good looks in appearing in a few music videos such as J. Cole’s “Work Out” and Lloyd Bank’ “What You Talking About” featuring Jadakiss among other cameos.
Today, Zavala is popular on IG with over 220,000 followers and also maintains a couple of pages related to fashion items, including a waist trainer and women’s intimates.
Charisse Mills landed on our radar recently after she graced the red carpet of this year’s American Music Awards in stunning fashion. The curvy singer is our latest Baes & Baddies entry for reasons that will become very apparent in a moment.
Mills hails from Trinidad and Tobago but was raised in Queens, New York. She has collaborated in the past with the likes of Ne-Yo and French Montana and has invented her own brand of music she has dubbed “Pop’Era” which is a blend of operatic singing over pop music stylings.
Mills is reemerging on the music scene by way of her latest single “Can’t Trust Myself,” which can be purchased here.
Check out Charisse Mills’ “Champagne” video with French Montana below and then check out the images of the lovely singer after.
“Kanye got to the point where he realized his rants were becoming unhealthy. This is why he deleted his account,” a source tells PEOPLE after the rapper, 41, cleared both his Twitter and Instagram accounts on Friday. “When he gets into these Twitter rants, it’s very difficult for him to stop. It’s like an obsession and it actually affects his life. He knows it’s not healthy, so he wants to take things down a notch,” the source says. (People)
Kanye West’s Twitter and Instagram accounts no longer exist. The rapper’s social media presence has apparently vanished as of Saturday. It isn’t the first time West has deleted his social media accounts without warning. He stayed off of Twitter for nearly a year, making his return this past April, and recently went back to Instagram as well. (The Hollywood Reporter)
Mercurial mad genius Kanye West has already deleted his Instagram account again after an all-too-brief return to praise his wife Kim Kardashian (and several other high-profile celebrity couples) on Valentine’s Day. Kanye originally deleted his accounts around eight months ago while recovering from an onstage meltdown during his Saint Pablo tour. The resulting public backlash and physical exhaustion of the tour caused him to retreat from public life while earning him a lawsuit and a very angry reference on Jay-Z’s Grammy-nominated album, 4:44.
