The star power of Migos is continuing to skyrocket and it has led them to James Corden’s Carpool Karaoke. The trio of Quavo, Takeoff and Offset hopped in the car with the late-night host to perform “Walk It Like I Talk It” but it takes a left when the Culture rappers take on Whitney Houston’s “I Wanna Dance With Somebody.”

The Atlanta hitmakers manage to infuse some of their Hip-Hop culture into Whitney’s pop cut by adding a dab in between Whitney’s vocals but no one should miss the intense crooning of Takeoff in the back who looks to enjoy every moment of the song.

[WATCH] Nicki Minaj Shoots Her Shot at Michael B. Jordan at E! People’s Choice Awards

It was more like a premeditated plan than her shooting anything at the Creed II star.

During Nicki Minaj’s acceptance speech last night at the E! People’s Choice Awards, she couldn’t help but extend her open R-rated invitation out to actor Michael B. Jordan, who the Pink Print rapper has made known she’s been crushin’ on for a while.

Nicki very confidently announces to the audience, “Shout-out to Donatella Versace for custom-making this outfit for me and shout-out to Michael B. Jordan because he’s going to be taking it off of me tonight.”

Watch Jimmy Fallon’s face after Minaj verbally spreads her legs for Jordan.

Donald Trump Claims he Doesn’t Know Lil Jon Although he Starred on ‘Celebrity Apprentice’

On Wednesday (Nov. 7), President Donald Trump gave his first public interview following the historic 2018 Midterm Elections, which he claimed he didn’t know who Lil Jon is.

The rapper previously appeared on The Celebrity Apprentice with the current President of the United States, but apparently he must’ve forgot. “I don’t know who Lil Jon is,” Trump said, responding to the reporter’s question. “I really don’t.”

The reporter then noted that they starred side-by-side on his reality show. “Oh, he was?” Donald Trump said.

Back in October 2016, Lil Jon asserted that Trump called him Uncle Tom while they were working on The Celebrity Apprentice together. The remark was made in response to the claims that the POTUS has made racist remarks in the past, which he continues to adamantly deny.

“When this ‘Uncle Tom’ incident happened on Celebrity Apprentice in the boardroom several of my cast mates and I addressed Mr. Trump immediately when we heard the comment,” he wrote at the time. “I can’t say if he knew what he was actually saying or not, but he did stop using that term once we explained its offensiveness.”

Pete Davidson Closes the Door on Talking His Split with Ariana Grande on ‘SNL’

At some point over the weekend, you may have come intact with talk of the end of the relationship of Ariana Grande and Pete Davidson. With a new episode of Saturday Night Live being promoted, Davidson cracked a brief joke in a promo package for the episode, leading fans to believe the breakup would become material for the show.

Right before the episode, Ariana Grande released her new single, “Thank U, Next,” which exploded on the timeline and trended seemingly serving as a way to quiet what could be an impending comedy storm.

The moment that is much discussed from the episode is Davidson’s appearance during Weekend Update where he did address the high-profile split, however, he did so amicably.

“The truth is it’s nobody’s business,” Davidson said during the segment regarding his relationship. “Sometimes things just don’t work out and that’s OK. She’s a wonderful, strong person and I genuinely wish her all the happiness in the world.”

View the segment below.

Ariana Grande Sends Shots to Pete Davidson Amid Breakup Spoof on ‘SNL’

Ariana Grande clearly doesn’t want her name uttered out of Pete Davidson’s mouth.

The Saturday Night Live star didn’t explicitly say the singer’s name, but from the looks of the teaser Davidson clearly referenced their short-lived engagement when he proposed to Maggie Rogers shortly after meeting her.

“Hey Maggie, I’m Pete,” Davidson says alongside host Jonah Hill. “You wanna get married?” After she declines, he responds, “0 for three.”

Downplaying their relationship did not sit well with Ariana, who took to Twitter on Thursday with the sharpest clap back.

“For somebody who claims to hate relevancy [you] sure love clinging to it huh,” she wrote, adding, “Thank [you], next.”

The “God Is a Woman” pop star didn’t call Davidson out, however a few other fan tweets that Ariana engaged with made her target clear as day.

Ariana retweeted and liked one tweet that stated, “SNL is about to milk their breakup just like they did with the engagement.”

The 25-year-old pop star is gradually separating herself from Davidson since their split in mid-October. Ariana Grande concealed two of their matching tattoos and is gearing up to take off on her Sweetener World Tour in 2019.

50 Cent Announces He Is Producing A Prequel To Power

Fifteen years after launching one of the biggest Rap careers of the 2000s, 50 Cent has found a new source of artistic and commercial success through Power. Since 2014, the Starz series has become a top draw for the network and premium cable shows of its kind. Following its fifth season, executive producer and “Kanan Stark” actor 50 Cent has announced that he has a new move planned for his series.

Yesterday (October 31), the entertainment juggernaut confirmed a series prequel online. “My Power spinoff is so crazy I’m doing the prequel,” Fif’ revealed on Instagram. “Wait till you see this sh*t, TGE influence (The Golden Era) Southside we outside 1988.”

50 Cent Buys 200 Ja Rule Concert Tickets To Make The Front Rows Empty

In the photo, 50 is sitting near two period-correct Chevrolet police cruisers. A prequel for Power makes a lot of sense, given the specter of the characters’ history that has always hung over the show. From the outset of season 1, it was revealed that “Ghost,” the series protagonist played by Omari Hardwick, and his partner “Tommy,” attained their power by double-crossing “Kanan” and sending him to prison. As “Ghost’s” wife and other partner-in-crime, “Tasha” also was heavily-involved in setting up “Kanan,” and the vitriol between the two characters came to a head in season 5. The prequel spinoff could address how and where “Ghost” and “Tommy” met, and subsequently got involved in the criminal enterprise led by “Kanan.” It also could be a coming of age story for “Kanan,” showcasing his rise and eventual tutelage of “Ghost” and “Tommy.” The budding romance between “Ghost” and his love interest “Angela,” may also be shown. At a time when 50’s character is off of the show, it adds new life to a landmark performance.

Last month, the executive also known as Curtis Jackson inked a $150 million deal with Starz to keep the Power and his other G-Unit Film & Television ventures playing. “When I sat down with Chris [Albrecht, Starz CEO] and walked him through my plans for G-Unit Film & Television going forward, he let me know I was essentially requesting the biggest deal in premium cable history,” 50 told Variety at the time.

Details Emerge Around The Behind The Scenes Drama That Led To Luke Cage’s Cancellation

Another contemporary action-crime thriller, Breaking Bad, gave way to prequel spin-off Better Call Saul.

In a separate IG post on Wednesday, Fif’ said that he’s directing Season 6 of the series “differently.”

‘Power’ Creator Courtney Kemp Receives New Deal, To Plan Spin-Offs

We are just about two months removed from Power‘s season five finale that saw AUSA Angela Valdez catch a bullet from her lover Ghost former drug-dealing partner Tommy. Yes, that’s a spoiler, if you haven’t seen it on social media now where have you been? But the Power franchise appears to be long from over. TV Line reports Co-creator Courtney Kemp has signed a new development and production deal with Lionsgate Television that could birth a spinoff.

“I’m incredibly proud of the success we’ve had with Power and I’m excited about expanding our banner and diversifying the types of stories we’re telling,” Kemp said in a statement. “I’m looking forward to exploring new ways of writing about my obsession: the intersections of violence, power, sex and romance.”

A spinoff could go numerous ways with the surplus of characters in the Power universe but a prequel detailing the rise to power of Ghost, Tommy and Kanan could definitely be interesting television.

Check out Courtney Kemp’s announcement below and keep your eyes peeled for the season six teasers that will drop leading up to its premiere.
