ANGELA SIMMONS OFF THE MARKET???
Hip-Hop royalty, Angela Simmons announced her engagement via Instagram. She posted a video of her gorgeous and rather sizeable rock. She didn’t however, announce the lucky guy that’s taking her off the market. I’ll keep my ears and eyes out for that one.
BEY MAKES LEMONADE & THE BEYHIVE STINGS RACHEL ROY…
Queen Bey dropped her new album Lemonade. True to form for Beyonce, the album is about female empowerment and much of it is speculated to be about Jay Z cheating. In the song, “Sorry,” Bey refers to a woman as “Becky with the good hair.” Fashion designer Rachel Roy insinuated she was Becky in an Instagram post and you KNOW the BeyHive went in. He post was flooded with lemon and bumble bee emoji’s along with all sorts of insults. Rachel has since deleted the post and made her page private. Did Jay-Z cheat with Rachel Roy? Who knows. But nobody ever likes the side chick so making that post was a dumb move.
$6 MILLION FOR A LIFE?
On Monday, the city of Cleveland announced a $6 million settlement in the police killing of 12-year-old Tamir Rice. If you recall, the boy was shot twice by an officer while playing with a toy gun in the park. Although the city of Cleveland awarded the family of Tamir Rice a monetary settlement, they did not admit any wrongdoing. Social media was on fire in reaction to a statement issued by the Cleveland Police Union.
“We can only hope the Rice family and their attorneys will use a portion of this settlement to help educate the youth of Cleveland in the dangers associated with the mishandling of both real and facsimile firearms,” the statement read. “Something positive must come from this tragic loss. That would be educating youth of the dangers of possessing a real or replica firearm.”
Only $6 million for Tamir Rice’s life? And the horribly arrogant and condescending statement by the police union adds insult to injury.
THE HAMILTONES PUT SOME “RESPECK” ON IT…
Birdman’s infamously short interview with The Breakfast club has provided social media with almost a week’s worth of entertainment. The meme’s are hilarious, but The Hamiltone’s (Anthony Hamilton’s background singers) latest offering shuts it down!
