The Bronx bombshell is back to dropping new music after a quick tease and reconnected with Bruno Mars for the track “Please Me” which has Twitter calling their boos and possibaes right now.

This is the second time the pair have joined one another on a track with Cardi hopping on Mars’ “Finesse” remix to great effect. The magic continues on the sultry, flirty banger in “Please Me” with production coming from Mars and The StereoTypes. And in true vixen fashion, Bardi is talking big about her bedroom prowess while Mars provides the smooth vocal boost he’s been known for via his ’90s R&B revival sound.

Earlier tonight (Feb. 13), reports began circulating that Florida rapper YNW Melly and another man have been charged with first-degree murder. Melly was charged in the October 2018 death of two close friends which he tried to stage as a drive-by shooting.

Local outlet South Florida Sun-Sentinel reports:

YNW Melly, whose legal name is Jamell Demons, has been arrested and charged with two counts of first-degree murder in connection with the October 2018 shooting deaths of the men, aspiring rappers who had been described as his close friends.

Demons was the second person arrested in connection with the October 26 double slaying. Miramar police said Cortlen Henry, 20, has also been arrested and charged with two counts of first-degree murder.

Via Instagram, Melly sent a message to his fans and seemingly stated his innocence.

“To all my fans and supporters no I did not get locked up in Washington , but I am turning myself in today I want you guys to know I love you and appreciate every single one of y’all, a couple months ago I lost my two brothers by violence and now the system want to find justice.. unfortunately a lot of rumors and lies are being said but no worries god is with me and my brother @ynw.bortlen,” read the caption.

Nicki Minaj Promises to Tell the ‘Real’ About Grammys on Upcoming Queen Radio Episode

A since-deleted tweet from BET’s Twitter account referenced Nicki Minaj “being dragged by her lace front” and she has since dropped out from the BET Experience and the award show.

In addition to dragging BET by their lace front, the Queen rapper took aim at Grammys producer, Ken Ehrlich, alleging that he’s the reason she never won a Grammy despite 10 nominations.

“I pissed off the same man Ariana just called out for lying,” Minaj tweeted. “Grammy producer KEN. I was bullied into staying quiet for 7 years out of fear. But I’ll tell my fans the REAL on the next episode of #QueenRadio they deserve the truth. Also, CONGRATS to everyone who won last night.”

Nicki Minaj posted her text message with Lil Wayne and he’s supporting her decision to drop from the show.

BET has since issued an apology saying the tweet was unauthorized and doesn’t reflect the company’s views on Nicki.

BET Apologizes After Nicki Minaj And Lil Wayne Threaten To Boycott The 2019 Award Show

Why post a good tweet just to delete it?

BET’s now deleted Twitter post aimed at the Pink Print rapstress after their blatant shade thrown at her looks like the all out Twitter beef between the artist and the machine has finally come to a humble truce on the part of the machine.

According to the LA Tines, BET posted a news item on the victory along with a saucy headline that read,

“Meanwhile, Nicki Minaj is being dragged by her lacefront.”

While the tweet was swiftly deleted, Minaj’s fans flooded the network’s social media accounts in support of the rapper.

61st Annual Grammy Awards

Source: Adriana M. Barraza/WENN.com / WENN

Cardi B made history by becoming the first solo woman act to win Best Rap Album at Grammy Awards, and as one can imagine, her acceptance speech was passionate and colorful. The Bronx starlet’s droves of fans took to Twitter and voiced their approval and adoration for Invasion Of Privacy’s big win.

Flanked by her husband Offset, who looked on lovingly at his wife, Cardi admitted that her nerves were and bad and joked that she would start smoking marijuana. A sweet portion of the speech is when Cardi talked about her daughter Kulture, and how she became pregnant as her debut album was nearing completion.

“I want to thank my daughter,” Cardi said. “I’m not just saying thank you because she’s my daughter. It’s because, you know, when I found out I was pregnant, my album was not complete, like three songs that I was for sure having. And then you know, you know how it was, we was like, we have to get this album done so I could still do videos while I’m still not showing. And it was very long nights.”

In another pure moment, Cardi gave a strong salute to the late Mac Miller, who was also up for the award for his album, Swimming.

Cardi B’s name began trending on Twitter shortly after the win and is still doing so this morning. We’ve collected some of our favorite responses below.

Gucci Goes Full Racist With Blackface Sweater, Twitter Dragging Commenced

It is the year 2019 and we’re still having to tell white people around the globe that blackface is an offensive practice and yet, it still persists. Gucci is responsible for the latest instance of this racist act and a Twitter dragging of epic proportion has commenced.

The longtime fashion brand put up for sale an $890 Balaclava knit sweater that covered the face of a white model. A portion of the sweater covered the lower part of the model’s face, complete with the stereotypical exaggerated lips that have been used in droves by way of blackface.

Considering the folly of its ways, Gucci issued a tweet that connected to a longer written statement regarding the blackface snafu.

“Gucci deeply apologizes for the offense caused by the wool balaclava jumper.
We consider diversity to be a fundamental value to be fully upheld, respected, and at the forefront of every decision we make,” read the tweet’s caption.

Although the item has been removed from sale, the damage has been done and we’ve collected many of the responses from Twitter below.

Demi Lovato Deletes Twitter After 21 Savage Fans Come For That A$$

Twitter wasn’t here for it when Demi Lovato chimed in on shocking news that 21 Savage is actually a British national. Fans, and even celebrities, came for the “Sorry Not Sorry” singer when she tweeted “the 21 Savage memes have been my favorite part of the Super Bowl.”

In case you somehow missed it, the rapper has been accused of overstaying his visa and is in danger of being deported. Lovato claimed she wasn’t laughing at the possibility of him being torn away from his home and family in Atlanta—but at the memes depicting 21 Savage as a Brit. “If you’re going to come at me for making a joke, try coming at me with something original not involving drugs” she wrote at the time, adding “F*ck Twitter. This is why I don’t tweet anymore.”

The famed singer also attempted to clarify what she found funny about the situation, saying “Wasn’t laughing at anyone getting deported. I know that’s not a joke.. not have I EVER laughed at that. The meme I posted/was talking about was of him being writing with a feather pen. Sorry if I offended anyone. But it’s no excuse to laugh at someone’s addiction let alone their OD,” she wrote in response to all those who criticized her and brought up her longtime struggle with drug addiction.”

She also eventually apologized, but Twitter didn’t seem to care much. ”Lastly, I wasn’t making fun on anything having to do with deportation or even anything against him,” Lovato explained. “I was laughing at who the fuck knew 21 was British? Literally no one. That’s it. It doesn’t go deeper than that. I’m sorry if I upset people.”

For now, Lovato’s Twitter account has been deactivated. See some screenshots of her going off below.

Actor Liam Neeson turned heads after a recent interview revealed that he once wanted to hand out fades to Black people after his friend was raped. The Taken franchise star’s racist revelation caught the attention of other celebrities who blasted Neeson for his quip.

In an interview in The Independent, Neeson explains that the rape of a friend sparked him to roam the streets in search of a “Black bastard” to beat up out of anger. Naturally, Neeson has endured quite a bit of flack for it and he’s already on the apology tour at the moment.

Still, the damage of the statement was done and beyond those who aren’t in his field, other known figures took to Twitter to shout down Neeson for his dangerous and divisive admittance.

Bmore Bamma Jess Hilarious Calls Fan “F*ggot” & Offers Weak Apology

Teen Choice Awards 2018

Source: Brian To/WENN.com / WENN

Jess Hilarious has amassed a huge following for her quick wit and humorous videos on Instagram, but now she’s quickly being gathered on Twitter over that sharp tongue. The Baltimore native clapped back at a fan and called the person a “f*ggot” via an Instagram comment and offered a weak apology in response to the calls for cancellation.

A Twitter user pointed out Jess Hilarious responding to an IG comment that to be fair, threw some shade her way and instead of going for the usual funny response, the funnywoman went for the proverbial jugular.

Jess responded to the dragging she’s been suffering since the exchange went down, but it doesn’t seem as if she’s understanding the gravity of the situation.

“Yesterday I called a young man a “f*ggot” For disrespecting me. And for that, to the LGBT community I sincerely apologize. However if I feel disrespected and that someone hit below the belt, whether they are gay or not, I’m going to return the same energy. I’m trying to control my anger at this point in my career By being more positive, but just like anybody else, it’s a growing process,” Jess wrote in a caption for an Instagram video explaining her response.

Check out the apology below along with Twitter responses to Jess Hilarious going hot-headed homophobic.
