Soulja Boy Promotes His App During Instagram and Facebook Shut Down

Was your Instagram and Facebook down for the majority of the day? Soulja Boy came to Twitter and can provide the services of his new app. He states in a tweet that he will be curating a new app very soon. He had his fans join him on the Soulja Boy app but there isn’t an exact date to release yet. It is a miraculous move on his call to launch his app at this time and need.

Soulja Boy was recently on the BET Social Awards by being one of the honorees and performed his longtime songs like “Donk” and many more. I know you can recall everyone as being his “Soulja Girl” with his style and swag.

In a cryptic tweet, Solange Knowles has social media ablaze after announcing her appearance on one of the most popular social media sites from the early 2000s. The singer has shared news of a BlackPlanet takeover with some fans speculating this is part of a new album rollout.

Owned by Urban One Inc., the largest Black-owned media company in the nation, BlackPlanet got its start in 2001 as a precursor to similar online gathering spaces such as Myspace and the like. With its specific focus towards Black audiences, BlackPlanet helped spark the birth of MiGente and AsianAve although BP remained the most popular of the three.

BlackPlanet features some glossy new makeovers and Solange’s page is complete with all the bells and whistles. Along with a live section announcing upcoming show dates, the dossier section lists a series of images of Solange. Fans can also sign up for a newsletter to keep up with the stylish artist.

Twitter reactions have been pouring in fast and swift and we’ve captured some of the best in the gallery.

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.

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.

Demi Lovato Deletes Her Twitter After Backlash From 21 Savage Tweet

While the Hip Hop community is scratching their head over the recent detaining and possible deportation of rap sensation 21 Savage, singer Demi Lavato’s joking remarks about the situation has brought her tweeting to an abrupt halt.

The “Confident” singer totally deleted her account after Black Twitter came for her after her tweet about 21 Savage being arrested by ICE this weekend in Atlanta.

Lovato wrote on Twitter in a now deleted tweet Sunday afternoon,

“So far 21 savage memes have been my favorite part of the Super Bowl.”

The Hip Hop community immediately came to Savage’s defense, not finding the humor in the “Bank Account” rapper’s current impasse.

https://mobile.twitter.com/OffsetYRN/status/1092257971504119808

Savage, whose real name is Shayaa Bin Abraham-Joseph, was arrested on Sunday morning by ICE (Immigration and Customs Enforcement) for reportedly overstaying his visa. He faces a possibility of deportation. He was reportedly born on the island of Dominica, which was a British colony.

Not long after deleting her Twitter, Lovato wrote another note on her IG Story about her prior tweets. She also shared screenshots of comments people made about it, including trolling her over her recent overdose and habitual drug use.

“Wasn’t laughing at anyone getting deported. I know that’s not a joke…not have I EVER laughed at that,” she penned. “The meme I posted/was talking about was of him being writing with a feather pen. Sorry if I offended anyone.”

Demi Lovato Deletes Twitter After Tweeting “21 Savage Memes Have Been My Fav Part Of The Super Bowl”

Demi Lovato

Pop star Demi Lovato is feeling the Internet’s wrath. The crooner has ditched Twitter after receiving massive backlash for a 21 Savage tweet following his ICE bust.

Last night, Demi referenced Sav’s immigrant detainment nightmare as her fave part of Super Bowl LIII.

News of 21 Savage’s arrest quickly spread over social media and subsequently became a meme. Lovato wrote on Twitter Sunday afternoon, “So far 21 savage memes have been my favorite part of the Super Bowl.” (E! Online)

Prior to deleting Twitter, Lovato cleared up speculation about poking fun at Sav’s situation.

Maybach Music Group’s Wale and Offset appeared to directly get at Lovato.

Despite deleting Twitter, Lovato relied on Instagram to fully address the situation and apologize.

Not long after she deleted her Twitter account, Lovato wrote on her Instagram Story. “Wasn’t laughing at anyone getting deported. I know that’s not a joke…not have I EVER laughed at that,” she said. “The meme I posted/was talking about was of him being writing with a feather pen. Sorry if I offended anyone.” She continued, “But it’s no excuse to laugh at someone’s addiction, let alone their OD.” (USA Today)

According to reports, Sav is currently in United States Immigration and Customs Enforcement custody in Georgia.

“U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) arrested unlawfully present United Kingdom national Sha Yaa Bin Abraham-Joseph AKA21 Savage” during a targeted operation with federal and local law enforcement partners early Sunday in metro Atlanta. Mr. Abraham-Joseph was taken into ICE custody as he is unlawfully present in the U.S. and also a convicted felon. “Mr. Abraham-Joseph initially entered the U.S. legally in July 2005, but subsequently failed to depart under the terms of his nonimmigrant visa and he became unlawfully present in the U.S. when his visa expired in July 2006.” (The Indy Channel)

Propose It Up: Joe Budden Pops The Question To Cyn Santana, She Said Yes

Miami New Years Eve - Parties & People

Source: Thaddaeus McAdams / Getty

Joe Budden and girlfriend Cyn Santana have been going strong for the past two years as fans of Love & Hip Hop: New York are well aware of, and some knew that a major life moment was imminent for the pair. During Budden’s live taping of The Joe Budden Podcast with Rory and Mal, Budden got on one knee to pop the question and Santana said yes.

Listeners of the podcast know that Budden was gearing up to pop the question but there was no indication that the live show would be the place it would happen. The taping took place Wednesday night (Dec. 19) at The Town Hall in New York City and Budden, being the masterful media maven that he is, made the most of the moment.

After stating that his relationship with Santana was the best he’s ever been, he asked her if that was true for her. The pair exchanged some banter not unlike what goes on during their series before Budden decided to ramp things up by getting on one knee. Of course, Joe nearly botched the big moment by not being exactly sure where to put the ring finger but Santana got him together properly. Beautiful moment nonetheless.

Budden and Santana welcomed their son, Lexington, into the world in 2017. A wedding date wasn’t announced right then and there, naturally.

Fans on Twitter have been saluting Joe Budden and Cyn Santana since news broke and we too wish to extend our congratulations to the couple. Be sure to check out the reactions below.

Recently Mr. West took it to Twitter to air out the disconnection he has with Drake and, his latest antics have sparked comments from the rapper from Long Beach.

While in his ride smoking and jamming Drake’s “From Time” featuring Jhene Aiko, Snopp went to Instagram to show support for the 6th God by calling him “Hard,” then he began going in on Kanye.

“Is y’all getting tired of this n***a Kanye West and these tweets?” He continued, “I see why you and Donald Trump hang out, y’all tweet like a m****r f****r.”

Then he suggests that Kanye needs Dr. Phil, Maury or Jerry Springer. He went with Jerry Springer and began the “Jerry” chants. Right before the video ended, he suggested that someone takes Kanye’s phone because “he’s acting a plum d**M fool”

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.
