Whew Chile, THE GHETTO! Love & Hip Hop Hollywood’s Season 5 Super Trailer Is Here (VIDEO)

VH1 has released the Love & Hip Hop Hollywood Season 5 super trailer … and whew chile, THE GHETTO!

On the surface, Love & Hip Hop Hollywood would seem like it would be a bit more “classier” than its NYC, ATL and MIA counterparts. But nope, LHHH is just as ghetto as its sister shows. If not, more!

Kimberly, the artist formerly known as K. Michelle, has moseyed her way on over to yet another Love & Hip Hop franchise. After showing her ass (literally) in Atlanta and New York City, she’s taken her talent out west to Los Angeles, and she’s decided to remove those massive butt implants that helped catapult her to superstardom. But the road to self-love does come with a few caveats: dealing with the haters in L.A.

Princess Love and Ray J are FINALLY with child, but unfortunately, they’re still dealing with cheating rumors, which is pissing momma Sonja and sister Brandy off because Ray J isn’t really cheating “this time” (or so so they say). Oh, and Moniece is still hurling insults at Princess, and Princess is hurling them right back, which causes Moniece to attempt to attack a whole pregnant woman.

Lyrica and A1 have always been the most drama-free of the LHH Hollywood couples, but not this season. K. Michelle (err, we mean “Kimberly”) has come armed with a few allegations of infidelity on Lyrica’s part, and Brooke Valentine is corroborating those claims. Back in ATL, Karlie was shaking the tables, but in Hollywood, Lyrica is FLIPPING tables while Brooke laughs at her after calling her out for being “lit” with a “husband and a side n**ga.”

Lyrica Garett and A1’s mom Pam are back to beefing, and food and chairs go flying when the subject of Lyrica Anderson stepping out on A1 is brought up. And wayment. Is Safaree the man Lyrica has been sleeping with? Because A1 certainly thinks so, and jumps on top of a table to go after him.

And last, but certainly not least, is Teairra Mari, who has a new man in her life, but as usual, he comes with some problems. She’s apparently not his number one chick OR number two chick, but the NUMBER THREE chick in Akbar Abdul-Ahad’s harem of women. And he has also “allegedly” released explicit videos and photos of her. After busting the windows out his car, Jazmine Sullivan-style, Mari teams up with Lisa Bloom for a press conference announcing a “revenge porn” lawsuit against Abdul-Ahad with her BFFs Moniece and Brooke by her side.

Like I said before… WHEW CHILE, THE GHETTO!!!

Love & Hip Hop Hollywood Season 5 premieres on Monday, July 23rd, but before then, get into the super trailer below:

Cardi B “My Mama Said” Tattle Tale Memes Are Taking Over Social Media

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you will know that at least three major news events occurred over the past week.

The 12 boys from the Thailand soccer team, along with their coach, were successfully rescued from a cave they’d been trapped in for two weeks. France won the 2018 FIFA World Cup. And Cardi B memes are running rampant all over the internet.

Someone recently shared a picture of Cardi B (real name: Belcalis Marlenis Almanzar) as a child, and as Twitter is wont to do, they turned it into a hilarious meme, pointing out Baby Belcalis’ “tattle tale” stance and combining it with the phrase “my mama said…”

Perhaps the funniest part of the meme is that we all know a little smart azz child who doesn’t mind putting your business out there. Hell, some of us were that annoying, smart-mouthed kid. But the captions are what really set this meme off. Combine that with the thought of Cardi B’s voice as a tiny tot and you have the perfect recipe for pure hilarity.

Take a look below:

Mugshot Madness: Michael Boatwright, Second XXXTentacion Murder Suspect, Arrested

Police have arrested a second suspect in XXXTentacion’s murder case.

22-year-old Michael Boatwright was arrested on an unrelated drug charge on Thursday, July 5th, and while he was in jail, he was served with a warrant on Tuesday, July 10th for first-degree murder.

According to court docs, when Boatwright was pulled over on July 5th for tinted windows, officers smelled marijuana and then discovered 6 grams of crack cocaine in his pocket.

Boatwright’s arrest record shows that, in addition to the murder charge, Boatwright is being held on charges of cannabis possession, possession of cocaine with intent to sell, manufacture or deliver, possession of the drug flakka, battery on a specified employee, resisting/obstruction without violence, and probation violation, among other charges. He’s being held without bond and it wasn’t immediately clear whether he had obtained legal representation.

XXXTentacion was shot and killed outside of a motorcycle dealership in Broward County, Florida on June 18th. According to the Broward County Sheriff’s Office, Michael Boatwright is one of the two armed suspects who confronted the rapper outside Riva Motorsports before he was gunned down. Police believe four people in total were involved.

22-year-old Robert Allen was also identified by investigators as a person of interest in connection with the killing of the 20-year-old rapper after he was spotted on surveillance video at the motorcycle in Pompano Beach were XXX was shopping before he was murdered. Allen is still wanted, along with another unnamed suspect.

Boatwright’s arrest came a few weeks after 22-year-old Dedrick Williams was arrested and booked for first-degree murder, however, police have said that he is not one of the men who actually shot XXXTentacion.

Body of Murdered New Orleans Teen Renard Matthews Displayed in Front of TV Playing Video Game

A New Orleans family chose a very unique way to remember their loved one at his wake.

18-year-old Renard Matthews was killed late last month (Tues, Jun. 26) during a shooting in his neighborhood. He had been walking his new dog when he was fatally shot in the head and his cellphone was taken, his aunt said.

For his wake at the Charbonnet Labat Glapion funeral home in New Orleans’ Tremé neighborhood last Sunday (Jul. 8), Matthews’ family decided to mourn him in the same way he lived his life.

The teen’s body was placed upright in a chair, with his hands holding a PlayStation 4 controller, surrounded by some of his favorite snacks, with his beloved Boston Celtics playing on NBA2K on a TV screen in front of him. He was wearing Celtics star Kyrie Irving’s #11 jersey, black pants, green socks with Irving’s face on them and black Nike slides. Matthews’ mother Tameka said her son was a homebody and a big fan of Kyrie Irving.

While this is certainly a rather “different” way to commemorate a loved one, you have to give Matthews’ family some originality points. While strange, it also probably helped lighten the burden of losing him, as seeing him in a casket would have likely been hard on the family, especially considering how young he was.

Renard Matthews’ funeral and burial were held two days after his wake, on Tuesday, July 10th.

WATCH: Adam “Pacman” Jones Gets Into Fight With Atlanta Airport Worker

NFL free agent Adam “Pacman” Jones got into a huge fistfight at the Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport in Atlanta Tuesday evening (Jul. 10) after he was attacked by an airport worker.

According to Fox 5 Atlanta, Jones had just touched down in ATL Tuesday when police say an employee of the facility-service ABM Industries made a “gesture” towards Jones as he was walking through the airport with a woman.

Video footage posted online shows Pacman calling out the airport worker and confronting him. After exchanging words with Jones, the ABM employee, Frank Ragin, still wearing his bright orange fest, went after former Cincinnati Bengals cornerback, which sparked the fight.

Police said Ragin punched Jones in the face, and after being hit, Jones defended himself and hit Ragin back, before eventually knocking him to the ground. At some point during the fight, Ragin reportedly hit the woman with Jones, hurting her hand.

Cops were called and arrested Ragin on two counts of battery. Jones was not arrested because Ragin through the first punch was the instigator in the fight, police said.

XXXTentacion Signed a $10 Million Record Deal Weeks Before Shooting Death

Just weeks before he was shot and killed in Florida, XXXTentacion signed a record deal worth $10 million, the New York Times reports. According to the Times, X was offered the contract by Empire, the same label he released his debut album 17 on last year.

According to multiple people who were “briefed on the terms,” Empire planned on releasing the Florida rapper’s third album sometime this year, and he had been in the studio working on new music at the time of his death.

Empire founder Ghazi Shami confirmed that the rapper had finished “a significant amount of material” for the album before he died. XXXTentacion’s posthumous third album isn’t expected to drop until at least October due to a clause in his last record contract with a distribution unit of Universal Music Group.

The release of his third album will no doubt contribute to the controversial rapper’s posthumous rise in popularity. The week after his death, his latest single “Sad!” jumped from No. 52 to No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 and he beat Beyoncé and JAY-Z’s Everything Is Love joint album for the #1 spot for that week.

The video for “Sad!”—which was released the day of his private funeral and eerily shows him attending his own funeral and fighting with his own resurrected body—has been viewed more than 60 million times on YouTube, bringing his total audio and video streams for his music to a whopping 4.6 billion, according to Nielson.

This has been a long journey for Cardi, who was rumored to be pregnant back in February after Super Bowl weekend. When fans questioned her via Twitter, she denied the pregnancy rumors, saying that she was just gaining weight and told them to “let me fat in peace.”

A month later, pregnancy rumors swirled even more when she attended and performed at the iHeart Radio Music Awards wearing outfits that were clearly covering her belly, and also reports at the time suggested she would be a VERY pregnant woman by the time her Coachella performance came around.

By April, Cardi decided she was going to reveal the news herself, and confirmed her pregnancy by debuting her baby bump during her SNL performance the week before Coachella. She confirmed she was having a girl in May, and continued to work throughout her pregnancy, releasing videos and performing shows here and there, and even making a surprise appearance at the birthday bash in Atlanta in June.

“Orange Is the New Black” Season 6 Trailer Shows Inmates Struggling in Litchfield Max

Netflix released the first official trailer for “Orange is the New Black” Season 6 on Monday (Jul. 9), and it looks like this season is going to be pretty bad for the women of Litchfield as they struggle to adjust to new life in the maximum security prison they were shipped off to after Season 5’s riot went terribly wrong.

From TV Line:

As you’ll recall, Season 5 ended on a major cliffhanger. A newly engaged Piper and Alex stood hand-in-hand with their fellow inmates — including Red, Nicky, Gloria, Taystee, Cindy, Suzanne, Blanca and Freida — waiting for the inevitable entry of armed officers following the conclusion of the prison riot. Meanwhile, the rest of the penitentiary’s populace got loaded onto buses and hauled to different prisons.

The trailer confirms everyone from the basement has been shipped to max—that is, except for Alex, who’s nowhere to be found. Additional inmates found in max include Lorna, Daya, Flaca, Pennsatucky and Boo, as well as unofficial prisoner Linda.

Eagle-eyed viewers will also spot Lolly (at the 1:23 mark in the trailer), who was last seen at the tail end of Season 4. At the time, she took the fall for Alex, who murdered Kubra’s hitman, and was dragged off to a psychiatric ward.

“Orange Is the New Black” Season 6 will hit Netflix at midnight PT (3 A.M. ET) on Friday, July 27th.

Check out the OITNB Season 6 trailer below:

“The Song Is Mine”: 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.

Instagram Photo

“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.
