About the show (via Oxygen):

“Preachers of Atlanta” offers a fresh perspective on men and women of the cloth determined to meet people in their current circumstances in order to inspire a resurgence of faith. Their ministries include communicating spiritual messages through hip-hop lyrics and venturing into the neighborhoods of Atlanta to find those in need. The pastors are real, passionate, and unashamed in their transparency, using their imperfections and out-of-the-box ways to reach a new generation for God.

Through the lens of five pastors with drastically different approaches to their ministry, the show explores many of the most hot-button and polarizing issues in America today. From passionate discussions surrounding the validity of unorthodox ministry methods to first-person accounts of the rippling and emotional effects of racial tensions with law enforcement, these unconventional preachers have no boundaries when it comes to tackling real issues that affect real people in their communities. The five preachers challenging the status quo are Pastor Corey Hambrick, Pastor Le’Andria Johnson, Pastor Canton Jones, Pastor Kimberly Jones-Pothier, and Pastor Judah Swilley.

About the show (via VH1):

For the final, emotionally-charged cycle, “Mob Wives: the Last Stand” returns the focus exclusively to where it all began – New York City. The Philly girls have left the building, and the ‘OG’ cast is back together on Staten Island, where they always keep it ‘one-hundred’ with each other. But amongst this sisterhood – could there be enemies within?

Since the series premiere in 2011, the women have created new lives for themselves as their loved ones do time for alleged mob-related activities. For each of these women, the struggle is real, and sometimes betrayal is a way of life.

“Mob Wives: The Last Stand” covers a particularly full range of stories: writing a personal tell-all, battling cancer and shuttering a beloved business, dealing with a rebellious teenage daughter, coping with a father’s imprisonment, calling out supposed friends for being fake, or being the new girl and having to prove that you’re authentic.

Despite the high-octane drama these ladies are known for, they are more than just their ‘reputed’ mob connections. They are mothers and wives, businesswomen and entrepreneurs, and for the last time, they’re putting it all on the line to survive. Complicating the situation even more, two local newcomers are about to make their presence known in no uncertain terms.

Beyoncé & Coldplay’s “Hymn for the Weekend” Video Accused of Cultural Appropriation


The official music video for Beyoncé and Coldplay‘s new single “Hymn for the Weekend” was released last Friday (Jan 29), and it didn’t take long for people to find something wrong with it.

The video shows Coldplay frontman Chris Martin singing as he rides through the bustling streets of Mumbai. In some scenes, Martin is doused with colorful powder as he partakes in the Hindu festival known as Holi.

As for Beyoncé, she is the obvious star of the video, with her solo scenes showing her garbed in what appears to be traditional Indian attire, complete with Henna tattoos and Indian jewelry.

Shortly after the video debuted, some people expressed that they were insulted over Beyoncé and Coldplay’s alleged appropriation of Indian culture.

Cultural appropriation, by definition, means an act or instance of a person or group of people “taking” another culture (usually in an illegal or unfair manner) for their own purposes, and many are convinced that Beyoncé is guilty of doing just that.

To be fair, the video does feature a real Bollywood actress, Sonam Kapoor, but she doesn’t have a lot of screen time and essentially plays the background to Beyoncé.

“Beyoncé is supposed to be an Indian Bollywood star,” East Indian writer Swati Avasthi noted in an e-mail to “She clumsily attempts traditional Indian dance without seeming to understand any of its significance. (The hand positions, which are important in traditional and are often a method of storytelling Indian dance, are not replicated faithfully here.)

Avasthi continued, “She is dressed up in too-sexualized-to-actually-be traditional Indian costumes, wearing traditional Indian jewelry, with Mendhi adorning her hands in one of her costuming changes. And her role? To be the object of the white man’s gaze.”

Ouch. And the reaction from some users on Twitter was quite similar:

Alleged cultural appropriation aside, Beyoncé is reportedly scheduled to join Coldplay on stage to perform this song (and maybe more?) during the Super Bowl 50 Halftime Show next Sunday (Feb 7) at Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, California.

Watch: Trey Songz “Everybody Say” Video


Following the release of his surprise mixtape To Whom It May Concern last November, Trey Songz unveils the official video for an extremely catchy song from the project, “Everybody Say.”

The simple (but long) video, an apparent exclusive for WorldStarHipHop, shows a bossed up Trigga surrounding himself with women, flaunting stacks of money and flossing his gold grill. We also get a quick glimpse of Trey’s new puppy Kane Songz, who has his own Instagram page.

“We don’t wanna talk if it ain’t about the money, that’s what everybody say. We got all the bitches at the club and the bottles on us, that’s what everybody say,” Songz sings/raps in the video. “S**t, I’m tryna hit a lick right quick, no s**t, that’s what everybody say… We got bitches, n****s know, oh yeah, that’s great. But bitch I’m tryna get paid. That’s what everybody say.”

As previously mentioned, “Everybody Say” comes from Trigga’s To Whom It May Concern mixtape (hosted by DJ Drama, who also appears in the video), which was released as a surprise back on in November on the singer’s 31st birthday.
