The 2019 MTV VMAs are shaping up to be quite the sight thanks to the unveiling of its highly anticipated performance roster.

Not even a week after sending fans of Taylor Swift into a frenzy with news she’ll be showing off a hit or two from her forthcoming album, ‘Lover’ (as we reported here), MTV’s announced the slew of other hitmakers who will be filling out the rest of the show ahead of its live airing on August 26.

Cicely Tyson has teamed up with Ava DuVernay to create a brand new TV series set to soar onto the small screen.

Not even two weeks after a jury found Katy Perry and her team guilty of copyright infringement for her 2013 hit ‘Dark Horse’ (click here to read more), it seems the singer may be well on her way to taking yet another ride to court.

Details inside:


Last night saw Nicki Minaj set the airwaves ablaze with a drama-filled episode of Queen Radio on Apple Music. 

As reported, she sounded off on the likes of Joe Budden, Trina(‘s team), and ‘The Breakfast Club’ – notably Charlamagne and DJ Envy – many of whom she accuses of fuelling and choo-choo’ing “The Nicki Hate Train.”

This morning on Power 105.1, The Breakfast Club weighed-in. And while they were endorsing of the femcee (expressing that they love Onika), Charlamagne warned that she needs to stop claiming everyone’s against her, so as not to become “Rap’s Mo’Nique.” Yikes.

Kesha has revealed that she intends to treat her fans to new music.

Music, she hopes will inspire them in a powerfully spiritual way.


Calvin Klein have unzipped their latest #MyCalvins campaign and it’s sent pulses racing.

The renown brand have tapped the likes of Naomi Campbell, Odell Beckham Jr, and Diplo for the scintillating ad campaign for their Fall 2019 Underwear range.

Honing in on filter’s culture, the commercial calls for folk to “remove the filter and watch what happens #IRL [In Real Life].”

Nicki Minaj is trending on social media thanks to the latest drama on Queen Radio. But so too is Trina.

However, it’s for an altogether different reason.

Earlier today Reginald Saunders, Trina’s A&R, took to social media with a damning post branding Nicki a “deceiver” and a “manipulator.” All of which relating to their collaboration ‘BAPS’ from recently released album ‘The One.’

Now, Saunders has opened up more about the matter in an in-depth interview with Funky Dineva. 

In the 17-minute interview, he unpacks issues surrounding the song’s video (or lack-thereof), the release of ‘Megatron’ on the same day as ‘BAPS,’ and more.

Lil Nas X continues to enjoy big success on the Billboard Hot 100. 

For, fresh from snatching Mariah Carey’s 23 year record, he’s creating quite the chart narrative for himself. One that’ll be a tall task to follow for releases of tomorrow.

Nicki Minaj just set to airwaves ablaze with the latest episode of Queen Radio on Apple Music. 

Since its launch, the platform has been seized by the femcee to vent about any and everything.

And this instalment was no different.

With outspoken rapper/host Joe Budden serving as her guest, Onika didn’t hold back taking him to task for comments he made about her in the past.

The result? A seismic clash that’s still on-going as we type.

Just weeks after taking to ‘GQ’ magazine to address rumors about his sexuality (click here to read more), football star Odell Beckham Jr. is setting the record straight again for those who didn’t get the memo.

Taking to Instagram just hours ago to post a “thirst trap” in celebration of his Calvin Klein campaign, the 26-year-old uploaded a scantily clad pic to set tongues wagging.  Instead, the snap got keyboards clacking with several of the commenters slamming his wardrobe selection (or lack thereof) and – again – raising questions about his sexual orientation.

Annoyed by the commentary, OBJ responded to one poster with hopes of shutting down the conversation once and for all. See what he said inside:


Eddie Murphy is back!

The funnyman is ending his hiatus by top-billing new movie ‘Dolemite Is My Name,’ which premieres on Netflix this Fall.

Highly anticipated, the Craig Brewer directed picture sees Murphy star as Rudy Ray Moore and is billed as a hilarious celebration of a singular talent who made his own legend.

Check out the first look trailer for the film, which features Wesley Snipes, Mike Epps, Snoop Dogg, and more…
