Spike Lee Cancels Chrisette Michele Music From His Netflix Series After Inauguration Backlash

Director Damns Diva For Accepting Trump Inauguration Gig

Legendary film director Spike Lee (‘Do the Right Thing,’ ‘Malcolm X,’ ‘School Daze,’ etc.) is definitely of the school of thought that Grammy winning R&B singer Chrisette Michele did not do the right thing when she accepted a gig to perform at an inauguration special for president elect Donald Trump.

The gig, turned down by famed stage and recording star Jennifer Holliday (who is still being dragged on Twitter for even accepting it in the first place, was handed to Michele for a reported $750,000.  What the move also purchased Michele was an ongoing Twitter dragging and a removal from consideration for Lee’s forthcoming Netflix series.

Teyana Taylor Recreates ‘Fade’ For ‘Vogue’

Teyana Taylor‘s performance in Kanye West’s ‘Fade’ was undoubtedly one of the highlights of 2016 and one of Pop culture’s brightest moments.

Impressed by her moves in the visual? ‘Vogue.’

Enthralled, the fashion publication called on her to rebuild and recreate the clip for its reader to support Taylor as she seeks to inspire today’s cosmetic surgery obsessed generation to seek healthier and longer-lasting alternatives to achieving their dream bodies.

I think dancing, as far as fitness, is very underrated. Whether that’s Zumba, tap dancing, or ballet, you have to realize that this is an actual workout. Sometime this year, I want to make a DVD. For real. Most people are selfish—they’re trying to keep all their secrets to themselves. But I really want to do it to help out all of the ladies. My diet sucks. I eat pizza, fried chicken, macaroni; I don’t eat vegetables. But I dance!
