Beyoncé, JAY-Z & DJ Khaled Dedicate Detroit Concert to Aretha Franklin Amid Reports She’s “Gravely Ill”

On Monday night (Aug. 13), after reports emerged saying that Aretha Franklin was “gravely ill” and living her last days, Beyoncé and JAY-Z dedicated their “On The Run II Tour” concert in Franklin’s hometown of Detroit to the Queen of Soul.

After performing their first song, “Holy Grail,” at Ford Field, Beyoncé told the cheering crowd “This show tonight is dedicated to Aretha Franklin.” Queen Bey added, “We love you and thank you for changing all of our lives with beautiful music.”

DJ Khaled, who served as the opening act of Monday’s show, got the crowd excited when he played one of Franklin’s biggest hits, “Respect.” After playing the song, Khaled shouted: “Make some noise for Aretha Franklin” as the audience cheered.

The touching dedications came just hours after news broke that the iconic singer was dying of cancer.

CNN reported late Monday that Franklin is in hospice care, and Detroit news anchor Evrod Cassimy, who has been in touch with the R&B/Soul legend’s loved ones said she was being “surrounded by friends and family” and “asking for your prayers at this time.”

Stevie Wonder and Jesse Jackson are among the singer’s friends who have visited Franklin at her home in Detroit over the last few days, according to her publicist Gwendolyn Quinn. Mariah Carey tweeted that she was “praying for the Queen of Soul,” as did Ciara and Missy Elliott.

Azealia Banks Compared Staying at Elon Musk’s House to “Get Out” Movie

After deciding to put her upcoming album Fantasea II: The Second Wave on hold after the Wildn’ Out debacle, it looks like Azealia Banks is back in the studio working on new music.

And it seems like she’s doing whatever it takes to finish her collaboration with Canadian singer Grimes, even if that means waiting around the musician’s boyfriend Elon Musk’s home all by herself for days.

The rapper and professional word vomiter said that’s exactly what she’s been doing in a message share shared to her Instagram story over the weekend.

“Literally been sitting at Elon Musks waiting for Grimes to show up and start these sessions,” she wrote. “I have no idea when she is coming back. I’m going to wait one more day then I’m going to go home.”

Later, she compared her stay at Musk’s house to Jordan Peele’s 2016 Oscar-winning movie “Get Out.” She wrote: “Staying at Elon Musk’s house has been like a real [life] episode of ‘Get Out’”

She then went on one of her signature rants full of slurs and TMI, suggesting Grimes and Musk wanted to have a threesome with her and calling them both “crackheads” and Musk a “trash a** beta male pig.”

She also accused Musk’s family of profiting from mining emerald and ore in southern Africa during apartheid, called him ugly said he was on the Down Syndrome spectrum. Oh, and she also said he was a “mutant.”

Read her entire rant below:

“LOL, Elon Musk is better off hiring an escort. At least an escort would have kept her mouth shut about his business. He’s got some dirty-sneaker-inbred-out of the words Pabst beer p***y methhead-junkie running around town telling EVERYONE EVERYTHING ABOUT HIM. All because he needed a date to the Met Gala to hide his shrinking d**k from Amber Heard LOL.

“A f***ing rebound. A beta male who took steroids and got hair plugs to convince himself he was alpha. There’s no reason, that in this collab with Grimes, I know so much about ‘Elon Musk’ … Grimes is really an idiot.

“And Elon Musk is really a part of the problem. When you talk about white male privilege and colonialism… His family’s wealth is rooted in emerald and ore mines in southern African during apartheid.

“This trash a** beta male pig was given his start in life because his disgusting racist parents took advantage of thousands of black people…..

“Ask Elon Musk what the f*** he does for Africa? Nothing, he ignores it. These fake a** libertarian sh** bags.

“And hes ugly. The thin grey lips. The froggy eyelids. Un-uniformed hair growth pattern. Pork skin. He’s own the Down syndrome spectrum. FOR SURE

“There’s something not quite right about that man. I wouldn’t give the credit of calling him an alien. He’s a mutant. His humanoid group emerged/crawled out of the Caucasus cave system 15,000 years after the first Caucasian homo-sapiens did. He’s really a caveman.”

And that’s not all. Banks, apparently after being accused of holding herself hostage, continued:

“Holding myself hostage? So you mean to tell me I specifically invited myself into your home after weeks and weeks of you telling me how your man thinks I’m hot and begging me to come to LA to work with [your] crusty a**? F***ing crackers. The last time I try working with a white b**ch.

“They’re both two f***ing crackheads. [He’s] tweeting on acid f***ing up his own stocks and whatnot. A real life dummy The nerve of these crackheads to think I would put my fully human lips on them. Absolutely atrocious.

After waiting for days, Banks said she received a first-class plane ticket out of L.A., which she did not appreciate.

“Lol I waited around all weekend while Grimes coddled her boyfriend for being too stupid to know not to go on Twitter while on acid. Then she had the nerve to go ghost and ‘book me a first class flight’ thru Roc Nation as if she’s big enough to send ME out of La. Ha!

“I should have stayed my ass in NYC. They invited me here to stay and told me I couldn’t bring my boyfriend…. Lol… it was probably some weird threesome sex sh** to begin with…..”

Yikes. This is a far cry from the excitement Banks expressed last month on Twitter when she found out she was going to collaborate with Grimes.

“Omg I’m listening to f2!!! All the songs are finished except Lorelei and Grimes song,” she tweeted. “I have a session next week with Alex Carapetis to lock Lorelei down. Then I go to LA to finish grimes and oh yes!! Finish Paradiso two! But daaaaaaaamn there’s some heat!”

Guess it’s safe to say this Grimes collaboration won’t be happening after all.

Stephanie Mills Dragged Sam Smith to Wakanda & Back for Michael Jackson Diss

Protip: If you are a somewhat popular singer, it would be in your best interests to never come for a legend like Michael Jackson. Apparently, British singer Sam Smith didn’t get the memo.

While vacationing with fellow singer Adam Lambert on what appears to be a yacht, Sam Smith was caught on video saying that he doesn’t like Michael Jackson. “I don’t like Michael Jackson but this is a good song,” Smith said as an MJ song played in the background.

While many folks on Twitter told Smith to put some gah damb respeck on the King of Pop’s name, even referencing the fact that his own song from the Bond move sounded like a knockoff of Jackson’s “Earth Song,” there was one person’s response to Smith’s MJ diss that stood out even more.

After the legendary Stephanie Mills caught wind of Smith’s comments about her late friend, she took to social media and dragged him for absolute filth. I mean, she took him to Wakanda, LET HIM HAVE IT, and then shipped his happy azz back to America with new knowledge that he is NOT to ever come for the King in the future.

“Don’t come for MICHAEL JACKSON when you wish you have sold as many records and you wish you were the King of Pop like he was,” she wrote on Instagram. “I’m so tired of you people studying our music, and studying our [artists] and claiming that you don’t like our music. Go sit your 1 HIT WONDER ass down and learn how to finish a tour. When you can sell as many records as the king of Pop, Michael Jackson then maybe you can say something. So I say to you Mr. Smith have several seats and come for me if you want to.”

Stephanie Mills also reminded the world of that time Sam Smith called a black woman a “black cunt.”

She said in a separate IG post: “Why would we embrace a man who refers to us as BLACK CUNTS? Yet he won the 2015 BET’s new artist award.”

BAY-BEH!!! Stephanie Mills got all the time today!

Talks Body Image, Twins’ C-Section Birth, Her Ancestry and Much More




Beyoncé goes for a completely natural look for her September 2018 Vogue magazine cover. “I think it’s important for women and men to see and appreciate the beauty in their natural bodies,” she says in an essay penned for the cover story. “That’s why I stripped away the wigs and hair extensions and used little makeup for this shoot.”

Beyoncé’s Vogue spread was shot entirely by a young, black photographer. In fact, 23-year-old Tyler Mitchell is the first African American to shoot a Vogue cover in the magazine’s entire 126-year history, and Queen Bey is the reason why he’s making history. She was given full control over the direction of the shoot and its accompanying feature.

“It’s important to me that I help open doors for younger artists,” she said. “Until there is a mosaic of perspectives coming from different ethnicities behind the lens, we will continue to have a narrow approach and view of what the world actually looks like. That is why I wanted to work with this brilliant 23-year-old photographer Tyler Mitchell.”

The notoriously private entertainer, who rarely (if ever) does interviews these days, opened up about her body image, complications from her pregnancy with twins Rumi and Sir, her ancestry and legacy, Coachella, her OTRII stadium tour with husband JAY-Z, and more.

Here are some things we learned about Beyoncé from her Vogue essay:

1Beyoncé was more than 200 pounds after giving birth to the twins. She had an emergency C-Section and still has a little “FUPA” to this day, which she says she now embraces.


“After the birth of my first child, I believed in the things society said about how my body should look. I put pressure on myself to lose all the baby weight in three months, and scheduled a small tour to assure I would do it. Looking back, that was crazy. I was still breastfeeding when I performed the Revel shows in Atlantic City in 2012. After the twins, I approached things very differently.

“I was 218 pounds the day I gave birth to Rumi and Sir. I was swollen from toxemia and had been on bed rest for over a month. My health and my babies’ health were in danger, so I had an emergency C-section. We spent many weeks in the NICU. My husband was a soldier and such a strong support system for me. I am proud to have been a witness to his strength and evolution as a man, a best friend, and a father. I was in survival mode and did not grasp it all until months later.

“Today I have a connection to any parent who has been through such an experience. After the C-section, my core felt different. It had been major surgery. Some of your organs are shifted temporarily, and in rare cases, removed temporarily during delivery. I am not sure everyone understands that. I needed time to heal, to recover.

“During my recovery, I gave myself self-love and self-care, and I embraced being curvier. I accepted what my body wanted to be. After six months, I started preparing for Coachella. I became vegan temporarily, gave up coffee, alcohol, and all fruit drinks. But I was patient with myself and enjoyed my fuller curves. My kids and husband did, too.

“I think it’s important for women and men to see and appreciate the beauty in their natural bodies. That’s why I stripped away the wigs and hair extensions and used little makeup for this shoot.

“To this day my arms, shoulders, breasts, and thighs are fuller. I have a little mommy pouch, and I’m in no rush to get rid of it. I think it’s real. Whenever I’m ready to get a six-pack, I will go into beast zone and work my ass off until I have it. But right now, my little FUPA and I feel like we are meant to be.”

2After researching her ancestry, Beyoncé found out one of her ancestors was a slave owner who fell in love with and married a slave.


“I come from a lineage of broken male-female relationships, abuse of power, and mistrust. Only when I saw that clearly was I able to resolve those conflicts in my own relationship. Connecting to the past and knowing our history makes us both bruised and beautiful.

“I researched my ancestry recently and learned that I come from a slave owner who fell in love with and married a slave. I had to process that revelation over time. I questioned what it meant and tried to put it into perspective. I now believe it’s why God blessed me with my twins. Male and female energy was able to coexist and grow in my blood for the first time. I pray that I am able to break the generational curses in my family and that my children will have less complicated lives.”

3Beyoncé came up with the theme of her Coachella performance one day while putting Rumi to sleep and she started singing the black national anthem “Lift Every Voice and Sing.”


“I had a clear vision for Coachella. I was so specific because I’d seen it, I’d heard it, and it was already written inside of me. One day I was randomly singing the black national anthem to Rumi while putting her to sleep. I started humming it to her every day. In the show at the time I was working on a version of the anthem with these dark minor chords and stomps and belts and screams.

“After a few days of humming the anthem, I realized I had the melody wrong. I was singing the wrong anthem. One of the most rewarding parts of the show was making that change. I swear I felt pure joy shining down on us. I know that most of the young people on the stage and in the audience did not know the history of the black national anthem before Coachella. But they understood the feeling it gave them.

“It was a celebration of all the people who sacrificed more than we could ever imagine, who moved the world forward so that it could welcome a woman of color to headline such a festival.”

4Performing in Berlin at the site of the 1936 Olympics for the “On The Run II” stadium tour was a memorable moment for Beyoncé.


“One of the most memorable moments for me on the On the Run II tour was the Berlin show at Olympiastadion, the site of the 1936 Olympics. This is a site that was used to promote the rhetoric of hate, racism, and divisiveness, and it is the place where Jesse Owens won four gold medals, destroying the myth of white supremacy.

“Less than 90 years later, two black people performed there to a packed, sold-out stadium. When Jay and I sang our final song, we saw everyone smiling, holding hands, kissing, and full of love. To see such human growth and connection—I live for those moments.”

5Beyoncé says she’s deliberate about how she presents herself to the world, and she wants to give her children the freedom to whatever they want to do in life.


“My mother taught me the importance not just of being seen but of seeing myself. As the mother of two girls, it’s important to me that they see themselves too—in books, films, and on runways. It’s important to me that they see themselves as CEOs, as bosses, and that they know they can write the script for their own lives—that they can speak their minds and they have no ceiling. They don’t have to be a certain type or fit into a specific category. They don’t have to be politically correct, as long as they’re authentic, respectful, compassionate, and empathetic. They can explore any religion, fall in love with any race, and love who they want to love.

“I want the same things for my son. I want him to know that he can be strong and brave but that he can also be sensitive and kind. I want my son to have a high emotional IQ where he is free to be caring, truthful, and honest. It’s everything a woman wants in a man, and yet we don’t teach it to our boys.

“I hope to teach my son not to fall victim to what the internet says he should be or how he should love. I want to create better representations for him so he is allowed to reach his full potential as a man, and to teach him that the real magic he possesses in the world is the power to affirm his own existence.

“I’m in a place of gratitude right now. I am accepting of who I am. I will continue to explore every inch of my soul and every part of my artistry. I want to learn more, teach more, and live in full. I’ve worked long and hard to be able to get to a place where I can choose to surround myself with what fulfills and inspires me.”

Drake’s “In My Feelings” Video

Drake has finally released the highly anticipated video for Scorpion’s biggest single “In My Feelings,” the fifth single from the album following “God’s Plan,” “Nice For What,” “I’m Upset” and “Don’t Matter to Me.”

The video for the song that sparked the summer’s biggest dance craze and viral #InMyFeelingsChallenge stars La La Anthony as Drizzy’s love interest Kiki, Phylicia Rashad as Kiki’s overprotective mother, and Instagram Shiggy—who helped propel the song to #1 by starting the #InMyFeelingsChallenge—as an annoying, loud-mouthed Production Assistant. It also features cameos from Yung Miami of the City Girls, New Orleans rapper Capito and Big Freedia.

WATCH HERE:

The visual begins with Drake, with a gold grill in his mouth, standing outside of Kiki’s window after she ignores his texts. “I’m trying to tell you, I love you, girl, for real,” he says using a terrible New Orleans accent before her mother (Phylicia Rashad) shows up and tries to get him to go away. From there, the 6 God takes over New Orleans as girls perform the “In My Feelings” Challenge all over the place.

At the end of the video, Drake wakes up in his production trailer, where he reveals it was all a dream. “I just had some dream that I made some song about some girl,” he explains to his friend CJ. “I was from New Orleans, grill in my mouth. And then this kid from New York that spits when he talks all the time did some dance to it. And then the world did the dance, and Will Smith was there. Nobody would stop. It was terrible.”

The video ends with viral videos of celebrities doing the dance, including DJ Khaled, Odell Beckham Jr., Will Smith, Lil Duval, Leslie Jones, Ciara & Russell Wilson, Millie Bobby Brown, Shiggy, and more.

Bruno Mars Has Already Found Cardi B’s Replacement for the 24K Magic Tour

Bruno Mars was blindsided by news of Cardi B pulling out of their joint tour to take care of his newborn baby, so much so that it’s being reported that his team is “scrambling” to find a replacement ASAP.

From TMZ:

Sources connected to Bruno’s tour—slated to kick off in September—tell us he’s without an opener and, so far, there has been no replacement made for Cardi. We’re told Bruno’s people were burning up the phones Friday … starting conversations with reps from a number of musicians but nothing is close to being locked down.

Our sources say Cardi’s decision to back out of the tour has created some issues … dancers were hired, costumes made and stage backdrops built.

Back in February, Mars announced that Cardi would be joining him on the final leg of his 24K Magic Tour. However, last Thursday (Jul. 26), Cardi announced via Twitter that she “understated this whole mommy thing” and she’s “not ready physically” and “not ready to leave [her] baby behind since doctors explained it’s not healthy for her to be on the road.”

Bruno was supportive of Cardi’s decision to stay home and enjoy being a new mommy and replied with a heartfelt message, saying that the “most important thing is you and your family’s health” and “you are absolutely doing the right thing.”

He went to say that he loved her and would “play Bodak Yellow every night in your honor” before ending his message with “Please give your baby girl a hug from me and a hug on behalf of everyone on the 24K Magic Tour. Love, Bruno.”

And after days of working overtime to find a replacement for Cardi, it sounds like he’s already found someone to fill her spot.

Responding to a fan who asked who would be taking over, Bruno joked, “I got a cousin learning all of Cardi’s songs right now. It’s gonna be great! He’s super excited.” When asked if he would reveal who’s really replacing Cardi, Mars said “Nah.”

With the tour kicking off in September, Bruno should be making an announcement about who will be taking Cardi’s spot pretty soon. Of course, Cardi B is irreplaceable, but I’m sure he’s found someone good enough to fill her shoes.

Lil Duval’s “Smile Bitch” Video Feat. Snoop Dogg & Ball Greezy

Hot on the heels of his viral #SmileBitch challenge, Lil Duval has released the official music video for his single of the same name.

The “Smile Bitch” video, which features Snoop Dogg and Ball Greezy, takes viewers on a psychedelic journey as the lyrics “I’m living my best life, I ain’t going back and forth with you n****s” and “smile bitch” are echoed throughout the song.

What started out as a joke could end up being a hit for Lil Duval, as the song’s lyrics are hella catchy and has already gone viral on social media, with celebs like Future, Kevin Hart and more singing the hook, which led to them having cameos in the video.

Did Brandy Shade Monica By Remixing “The Boy Is Mine” Lyrics?

Brandy is singlehandedly keeping the beef between her and Monica alive.

While performing at the 2018 Essence Music Festival in New Orleans, Brandy took the audience on a trip down memory lane by singing her 20-year-old hit single “The Boy Is Mine,” which also features Monica. During the song, Brandy switched the lyrics from “the boy is mine” to “the song is mine,” which was clearly meant to be shade towards Monica.

“The Boy Is Mine” was released as a joint single in May 1998 and was featured on Brandy’s second studio album Never Say Never. A month later, Monica also released the track as the lead single from her sophomore album titled The Boy Is Mine.

The song marked the first #1 Hot 100 hit for both artists and spent 13 weeks at the top of the chart. Both singers also won a Grammy Award for Best R&B Performance by a Duo or Group at the 1999 Grammy Awards.

It is believed that part of the song’s success came from ongoing rumors that Brandy and Monica had an unspoken rivalry. Monica also reportedly had an issue with Brandy performing the song on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno without her, and Brandy was reportedly upset with Monica for using the song’s title for the name of her album.

The beef gained so much traction that the singers’ managers were forced to release a joint statement addressing the feud after rumors began to swirl that the duo almost had a physical altercation while rehearsing for the 1998 MTV Video Music Awards. Their managers blamed the media, calling the behavior “disturbing” and saying that the “ongoing negativity [was] totally unfair.”

Although Brandy and Monica reunited 14 years later on “It All Belongs To Me” in 2012, it looks like Brandy still has some unfinished business to tend to and is taking the title of their 2012 collaboration literally.

Fans on Twitter were hella confused and quickly voiced their opinions online:

Of course, as some of the tweets above suggest, this is far from the first time Brandy has thrown shade at Monica. Based on our own records, Brandy has taken jabs at Monica at least seven times (including this one) over the past couple of years. See below for proof:

Jul. 18, 2016: Brandy Goes Full Diva and Shades Monica on Instagram, Then Deletes the Post

Aug. 27, 2016: Brandy Is Not Here For Monica or the #SoGoneChallenge

Sep. 17, 2016: Is Brandy OK? The Singer Responds to Monica’s “The Real” Interview With Strange Snapchat Videos

Nov. 28, 2016: Petty Brandy Throws Shade at Monica During Soul Train Awards Performance & on Instagram, Tamar Braxton Joins In

Nov. 29, 2016: Brandy’s Mama Sonja Norwood Joins in to Shade Monica on Instagram, and Brandy Is Not Letting the Beef Go

Aug. 9, 2017: Brandy Celebrates Whitney Houston’s Birthday by Insinuating the Icon Loved Her More Than Monica (Again)

Aug. 9, 2017: Black Twitter Drags Brandy for Claiming Whitney Houston Passed the Torch to Her Before Her Passing

As you can see, it’s clearly time for Brandy to move on with her life and let that hurt go. Because this beef is CLEARLY one-sided.

Beyonce, JAY-Z & More to Perform at Global Citizen Festival Honoring Nelson Mandela in South Africa

A special Global Citizen Festival will be held in South Africa later this year in honor of Nelson Mandela, who died in 2013.

The concert, which will be held on December 2nd at FNB Stadium in Johannesburg, will mark the 100th anniversary of the birth of the anti-apartheid leader and Nobel Peace Prize winner, organizers announced early Monday (Jul. 9). Beyoncé and JAY-Z are set to headline the show, which will also feature performances from Ed Sheeran, Pharrell Williams, Chris Martin, Usher and African artists including Wizkid, Cassper Nyovest, and Femi Kuti.

Oprah Winfrey will deliver a keynote address on Mandela’s legacy, organizers said. Other hosts will include Naomi Campbell and actors Forest Whitaker and Tyler Perry. The Global Citizen movement has a goal of ending extreme poverty by 2030, and with its Mandela campaign, it hopes to rake in at least $1 billion to help make that goal a reality.

“Global Citizen’s campaign, which aims to rally $1 billion in new commitments, with $500 million of that set to impact the lives of 20 million women and girls worldwide, will focus on the first six Global Goals: ending poverty, zero hunger, good health and well-being, quality education, gender equality, clean water and sanitation, and life below water,” the festival’s announcement reads.

In lieu of putting tickets on sale, the festival is asking fans to earn tickets through advocacy and social justice work starting August 21st. To sign up and find more info about the concert, head on over to the Global Citizen website.
