Rihanna just released her video for her new single, "Sledgehammer" from the "Star Trek" soundtrack. From what I saw the video looks a little trippy and Rihanna looks demonic. I read the song was written by Sia(worked with Christina Aguilera). Rihanna also just collected her 21st top 5 hit with "This Is What It's Made For" featuring Calvin Harris(I believe that's the name of the song). Congrats to Rihanna! Rihanna is currently overseas on her "ANTI World Tour" and interestingly enough Beyoncé is overseas as well on her "Formation World Tour". The Academy Awards has finally decided to "blacken" their Academy by announcing 46 new members to the Academy. This year the Academy came under fire for the lack of Black actors and black movies being recognized. This has been an issue over the years and its a good thing they took the broadening seriously. Now if these other award shows would stop being political, then we'd be on to something. Iggy Azalea has spoken out on Twitter over news that her ex boyfriend Nick Young got his ex girlfriend pregnant. Iggy says she found on via E! News just like everyone else. Wow! What a bummer! Iggy just be going through it. A video surfaced of someone telling Iggy she ruined Hip Hop. Ouch! That has to hurt! I wonder does Iggy have any new music coming out? This would be a good time to put some new music out. What do you all think?

Mama Tina comes to her daughter's rescue after everyone accused Beyoncé of dipping out of the BET Awards. Apparently Beyoncé had to be overseas for her overseas leg of her "Formation World Tour". Lil' Kim's fans came to her rescue after Nene Leakes started throwing shade or one of her writers for her new website. The website which Nene just launched called "The Fab Gab" deals with everyday topics including plastic surgery(which Nene has been very open about in recent years) and dating. Nene took time to address the Lil' Kim fans by saying she didn't write the article that threw shade at Lil' Kim. I wonder will Nene address what Khia said about her on her video blog. Nene is one of the few celebs who will basically responded to every negative critique she receives especially when it comes from another celebrity. Jennifer Hudson has signed to Epic Records. Jennifer has been apart of the Sony Records family since her first signing. Originally she was signed under J Records and Arista. Jennifer will work alongside L.A. Reid and Clive Davis. Jennifer brought the house down at the BET Awards during her cover of Prince's "Purple Rain". I'm thinking maybe she cover it for her new album. What do you all think?

Mariah Carey has been bringing out surprise guests during her stint in Las Vegas. Just last week she brought out John Legend for an intimate lap dance for her hit single, "Touch My Body". Just a few days ago Mariah brought out none other than Blac Chyna which I thought was pretty random. I guess! Who do you think Mariah will bring out next? Congratulations are in order for Jill Scott who got married this weekend! Suge Knight is suing Chris Brown for saying his lack of security is the reason why he got shot 5 times. Chris Brown's ex manager has spoken out and says they quit because Chris was "irrational" and "on drugs". No surprise there! Justin Timberlake faced a backlash after Jesse Williams' BET acceptance speech. He has since apologized for his words which stated "we are all one" or something along those lines. Jesse spoke about the power of Black people and what we represent during his acceptance speech for his Humanitarian award. And Lil' Wayne was accused of punching a bouncer after the bouncer turned away some of his entourage. The bouncer has taken legal action! SMH! Do you think Lil' Wayne really punched a bouncer? Sounds kinda funny if you ask me and not particularly believable but who knows.
Beyoncé opened up the 2016 BET Awards last night with a performance of the song, "Freedom" and she was joined by Kendrick Lamar and abruptly left the show. Beyoncé's mother, Tina Knowles-Lawson accepted Beyoncé's awards in her honor. Someone told me at work that Bey had to leave to go to London. Is that true? While I didn't personally watch the BET Awards telecast, I was informed through social media at many of the aha moments and performances. The "other" highlight of the show was the many Prince tributes in the form of Erykah Badu, Bilal, Janelle Monae, and Jennifer Hudson who brought the house down with "Purple Rain". I was fortunate to see a :30 second clip of the performance and I need to see the rest. Elsewhere Toni Braxton was in tow with her new man, Birdman. Speaking of Toni, her sister threw some shade on IG over Toni's decision to use Tamar's ex makeup artist. Tamar is too damn dramatic for my taste. I like dramatic but not over the top dramatic. You dig? Ray J is reportedly upset after the Kanye West video "Famous" leaked out which featured a person resembling him in the bed next to Kim K. I'm not sure why Ray is mad though with all the jabs he's taken at Kim K and Kanye its only right Kanye strikes back in some way. Get over it Ray!

Azealia Banks says she plans to get a butt lift after publicly criticizing Nicki Minaj and K. Michelle for their own procedures. Azealia also plans to do a "skin lighting" video. I actually think Lil' Kim should do one since she's seem to have the "skin lighting" thing packed, just saying! Azealia also took time to criticize T.I. over his role in the remake of "ROOTS" and his disdain over Donald Trump. As far as music is concerned, Azealia says she's finishing her "Fantasea 2: The Second Wave" by summer's end. Chris Brown is being sued by his former manager who says Chris assaulted him. A few days ago Keri Hilson had Twitter on fire after she posted a video on her Snapchat of her swallowing a popsicle whole. The shocking act was meant to be funny and it was taken that way but also let people know Keri is not to be messed with it when it comes to placing things deep in her throat! Ha! Kanye West just released the video to his single, "Famous" on TIDAL. The video is likely available on other outlets now as well. In the clip Kanye West is nude in a bed covered in sheets next to his wife, Kim Kardashian. The bed is also filled with several celebrities(whose bodies were created specifically for video). Those celebrities include Donald Trump, Chris Brown, Rihanna, Caitlyn Jenner, Amber Rose, etc.
