Laugh At


beyonce

It’s a sad week for news radio fans in Houston. The city’s very last all-news station has officially closed its doors, and switched to an all Beyonce format. We’re not kidding — until someone comes up and buys up the spot — it’s 24 hours of Beyonce, all day, everyday. Just stream News 92 FM here and listen for yourself.

Read the station’s press release below…

Ice Cube was a guest on The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Monday. During the appearance, the actor-mogul-rapper and Ellen played a game of Icebreakers, where they exchanged their best pick-up lines. With a makeshift bar serving as the ideal setting, the pair try their best to outdo the other while attempting to keep a straight face. Watch the funny moment below, as Ice Cube’s new album Everythang’s Corrupt arrives October 21.

We’re used to seeing Jay Z and Beyoncé soak up the action courtside at the Barclays Center, but the Carters sampled some top level European soccer last night as they nabbed tickets for the UEFA Champions League clash between Paris St. Germain and FC Barcelona at the Parc des Princes. Hov was sat next to former PSG player and soccer legend David Beckham, which was lucky, because it looked like he had absolutely no idea what he was watching. Good thing Becks was around to school him on the beautiful game (and discuss potential plans for an epic Roc Nation Sports deal, if we’re speculating).

(Sidebar: Jay has been spotted at a few Arsenal games and was even close to investing in the London club, so to be fair, he’s probably not entirely clueless about footy).

Anyone around in the ’90s will surely remember the Pokemon craze. The animated trading cards swooped upon the American markets and quickly had kids and even adults obsessed over the little cardboard pieces. Pokemon also came in cartoon TV show and video game form, which gave its characters some serious cult followings. As homage to the former pop culture trend, P&P came out with some hilarous rapper-mon cards.

Check them out below…

I first saw this video online at 7:55 AM today. By noon, there were thousands of re-posts of this gutsy reporter’s farewell to journalism. No, Charlo Greene didn’t retire, she just decided to quit her job on air to pursue a career in Marijuana full time. As the owner of Alaska’s biggest pot club, Greene made her big announcement for the world to see. Queen.

Update: The reporter explains why she did… what she did.

Oh just bring on the aneurysm. The first season of VH1’s ‘Love And Hip Hop Hollywood’ will be infecting us in just a few scant days. While New York seems to have run it’s course, and Atlanta has gone from telenovela hilarity to tiring absurdity…the latest iteration of the exaggerated reality of has-beens and never-wuzes is now based in Los Angeles (Houston and Miami allegedly on the way?) with a cast that includes Ray J, Soulja Boy, Omarion…Lil Fizz and Yung Berg. LIL FIZZ AND YUNG BERG.
Do you need help getting up?

Also, primed to “bring the drama” is Teairra Mari…most notable for having far too many vowels in her first name, as well as being the Jay Z ingenue that did not become Rihanna.

Screen Shot 2014-09-04 at 1.24.23 PM

Apparently Ray J was dating Teairra (perhaps in preparation for a juicy storyline for this show)…but is now dating his personal assistant. So there will be fights…
As previewed in the video below, along with Teddy Riley’s daughter Nia making a terrible mistake with Soulja Boy….um, TELL ‘EM?

Nicki Minaj Anaconda at VMAs 2014
(Nicki Minaj performs “Anaconda” at the 2014 MTV Video Music Awards)

Nicki Minaj‘s “Anaconda” is the pop culture renewable resource that just never runs out. Before it even came out, we got the incredible artwork. Then the even more incredible memes based on the artwork. Then the actual song. Then behind the scenes at the video shoot with Nicki’s patois rant. Then the photos of Drake’s friendzone lapdance. Then the mass web ejacu-reaction to the full “Anaconda” video. Then the VMA performance. And now…we’ve reaching critical mass, because we’re just getting pure silliness.
But this still made me laugh….because I’m basically a 12 year old boy.

iggy-azalea

Iggy Azalea hit the stage at the Avalon in Hollywood on Friday night for a Lifebeat pre-VMA concert. The show almost went without a hitch, except for a small embarrassing moment. While performing her No.1 hit-song “Fancy,” the Aussie rapper fell off the stage as she was moving backwards, not paying attention. A true performer, Azalea continued rapping as security helped her up and back on stage.

Sorry but it would be a crime not to share this with you all, I know I laughed #StillFinishedtheSongTho #KeptOnRapping #TheShowMustGoOn,” said Iggy on Instagram, laughing at herself while posting a video of the fall. Watch the moment below.

Treach and Cicely, Couples Therapy VH1

I’m all for therapy… for fighting couples, for happy couples, for individuals, umm, massage therapy, light therapy, equine therapy. Whatever it is…if you can afford it, by all means, therapute the hell out of yourself. But this Couples Therapy show…is like some kind of Wipe Out obstacle course for people who are in a relationship with their own ego but also sleeping someone who is likewise attention-obsessed. And it makes for some addictively cringeworthy television.
This season, Treach Criss and his girlfriend Cicely Evans join the fun house along with the most annoying person on that one season of Jersey Shore that I watched, Deena Cortese and her man, as well as porn star Jenna Jameson and her man. Bring the sorrow.

Seems like some high drama could be in store this season…especially since Treach may be off his rocker lately. Just look at his current demand that Naughty By Nature will only perform without the affable Vin Rock. But will it be fun crazy? Or just exhausting sad crazy? I’m predicting the latter.
And there’s no chance that it will be the surreal, hilarious, charismatic crazy of last season’s breakout star Ghostface Killah

Today marks the 20th anniversary of Biggie’s breakout single, “Juicy,” and Shea Serrano/Grantland took the time to put together an extensive standardized test on the classic record. There’s a couple “facts” that most rap fans are aware of, including all that was seen in Notorious. I guess only a few folks really know everything that went on behind-the-scenes, but if you consider yourself a rap scholar, take Grantland’s test and prove it!

Grantland tossed out a few disputed tidbits: Pete Rock says he came up with the original version, and that Diddy lifted it from him. Perhaps this is turnabout, though. Consider: In 1993, San Francisco’s Dre Dog released an album called The New Jim Jones. His lead single, “The Ave.,” also used a slice of Mtume’s “Juicy Fruit” as its spine.

Biggie wasn’t all that excited about recording the track at first. We all watched Notorious. We all saw that part of the movie:
