Outrage


offset

Migos member Offset caused a stir on social media this week after the release of YFN Lucci’s “Boss Life” music video. While the song came out last year right before the Christmas holidays, it wasn’t until its accompanying visual dropped online that listeners caught an offensive lyric in the song. Offset, who is featured on the track, rapped the line “I cannot vibe with queers.” The Atlanta hitmaker soon faced backlash over the line and on Thursday (Jan. 18), Offset issued an apology.

I didn’t write the line about gay people,” says Offset in a statement posted on his Instagram. “I have said before since these issues before that I got love for all people. My passion for fashion has lead me to a lot of gay people around me who I have mad respect for and we are very cool so I’m not in a place where I’m hating like that,” he later continued. “I M S O R R Y, I A P O L O G I Z E, I’m offended I offended anybody.”

Talk about the Internet goin’ nuts. Last night, Kim Kardashian finally got fed up of Taylor Swift and exposed her “fake ass” (her husband’s words, not ours) by presenting cold, hard, Snapchat evidence of that phone call between Kanye West and Taylor Swift.

lil wayne throws mic at dj

We’ve seen how Kanye West deals with incompetent DJs, but it’s nothing compared to the wrath of Lil Wayne. Just seven songs into last night’s set at Nova Southern University in Fort Lauderdale, FL, Weezy threw the mic at the DJ and stormed off stage after he spun O.T. Genasis’ “Coco” instead of Wayne’s remix. Even Big Kap had it easier than this dude!

Back when Janice Dickinson, the polarizing plasticized 70’s-80’s supermodel and America’s Next Top Model judge, wrote her autobiography No Lifeguard on Duty: The Accidental Life of the World’s First Supermodel in 2002, she allegedly included a story about being raped by Bill Cosby. In a new interview with Entertainment Tonight, Dickinson both restates the Cosby rape allegation, but also claims that the legendary comedian and his legal team pressured her publisher HarperCollins to remove the story from the book’s first draft. Instead, a less detailed story, stopping short of rape accusations but still creepy, was included. (Read that version here on Vice)

Here’s what Janice Dickinson is now telling ET about her encounter in Lake Tahoe in 1982, when she accepted an invitation from Cosby to meet up to discuss a possible acting job…she claims that after dinner, she accepted a glass of red wine, and a pill to help her with cramps. And then…

The next morning I woke up, and I wasn’t wearing my pajamas, and I remember before I passed out that I had been sexually assaulted by this man,” she tells ET. “… Before I woke up in the morning, the last thing I remember was Bill Cosby in a patchwork robe, dropping his robe and getting on top of me. And I remember a lot of pain. The next morning I remember waking up with my pajamas off and there was se–n in between my legs.

BET is in hot water again. On Monday afternoon’s airing of 106 & Park, special guest host Karrueche Tran gave a recap on Sunday night’s MTV VMAs during a segment called “Top Six Things Blue Ivy Thought About the VMAs.” Reading off a teleprompter, the No. 1 “thought” turned out to be a classless joke directed at Beyoncé and Jay Z’s daughter, Blue Ivy.

Yesterday TMZ obtained audio of a conversation between L.A. Clippers owner Donald Sterling and his girlfriend V. Stiviano, and his comments were truly appalling. The 80-year-old Sterling scolded his much younger girlfriend (who is black and Mexican) for posting pictures of herself with black guys (including Lakers legend Magic Johnson) on Instagram, and told her “not to bring them to my games.”

drake rolling stone

Drake is not impressed with Rolling Stone. Yesterday the magazine published some not-so-savory quotes from their interview online, in which the OVO rapper called Macklemore’s Grammy apology text to Kendrick Lamar “wack as fuck,” among other things. Additional portions of the interview have since surfaced online, wherein Drake discussed his relationship with Rihanna, revealed how the Grammys tried to play him and, most notably, laughed at some of Kanye West’s lyrics on Yeezus. “Like that ‘Swaghili’ line? Come on, man. Fabolous wouldn’t say some shit like that,” he allegedly said.

This morning, Drizzy took to Twitter to publicly deny making comments about Yeezus in his interview, and claimed Rolling Stone had promised him a cover before pulling it at the last minute (the cover now features recently deceased actor Phillip Seymour Hoffman, who he paid his respects to). The outcome of this whole debacle? Drake is in strictly no-press mode from now on.

Read Drake’s tweets, plus his quotes about Kanye, Rihanna and the Grammys below…
