Being from Queens, New York, 50 may have been set f by Trump coming at New York in recent days, placing blame on the city and mulling a Quarantine on the state New York and surrounding area. Saturday, Trump tweeted, “I am giving consideration to a QUARANTINE developing ‘hot spots,’ New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut. A decision will be made, one way or another, shortly.” He described a potential quarantine as “short,” citing “two-weeks” for New York.

Raven-Symoné has kept much her private life under wraps as she’s navigated the industry for the majority her life. Now, she’s opening up on INFRASOUNDS, a five-pack project that’s said to be second in a series. “I do believe growing up in the industry has morphed my vision life in general,” she said. “I’m a product my environment/upbringing and yeah, I’ve been in this industry since I was two years old and I’m 34.”

‘The revealing part is you’ve never seen me like this. I’ve never spoken so freely about what I’ve been through. I’ve spoken it to the people around me… but now I’m letting the public see it,” Raven-Symoné added. There’s much more that she wants to share from her childhood as many her lyrics, she said, are pulled from her diaries. ‘But it hasn’t been released yet to the world. I think that’s (for) another moment… when I got to go through that again and I’m still learning how to process it.”

Anthony Davis Admits What Lakers Players Are Doing Without NBA

NBA players are currently in the midst the most bizarre crisis they have ever been a part . The league has completely shut down and it has nothing to do with a lockout or CBA disagreement. Instead, it has to do with the fact that the Coronavirus is ravaging its way throughout North America and the league needed to take action.

Prior to the break, the Los Angeles Lakers were first in the Western Conference and Anthony Davis was having himself a wonderful year. Now, the Lakers star is speaking out about COVID-19 and what his teammates are doing now that they can’t play or practice together. As you’re about to read, everyone is very bored.

“We’re sending each other highlight tapes because we miss the game,” Davis said according to Tania Ganguli the Los Angeles Times.“Guys are finding a way to work out safely because you know the season isn’t over. We want to make sure we pick up where we left f. We were in a great place.”

The Lakers are considered championship contenders and if the league ends up canceling the season, many will feel as though the Lakers were robbed. With this in mind, it will be interesting to see how all the different scenarios end up playing out.

Cardi B’s Sister Hennessy Carolina Sets Instagram Ablaze With Thirst Traps

Sex appeal runs in the family, apparently. Hennessy Carolina, perhaps better known as Cardi B‘s sister, is a bombshell in her own right. The social media influencer has nearly seven million followers on the ‘gram, with fans keeping track her every move. Both she and her sis have worked hard to maintain their bodies and it shows. Hennessy Carolina felt like regaining the spotlight from her blood this week, stripping down to a bra-and-panty set to attempt to outshine her sister. The crazy thing about that is that it may have worked.

When Cardi B shared a photo her sister’s thirst trap activity on her own page, the post garnered over two-million likes. Her own version the picture didn’t even grab half that. Henny has got all the men and women breaking their necks, punching the air while in self-quarantine since they can’t physically link up with the starlet. We’re sure her DMs are in shambles right now.

Carolina’s follow-up thirst trap may even end up out-performing the original, showing her in the same outfit from the back, flexing body goals with her toned legs and buttocks. There is no denying that she looks incredible.

Take a look at Hennessy Carolina’s latest social upload below and let us know who you prefer between her and her sister.

Paulina Gretzky Dances In A Bikini To Megan Thee Stallion Amid Quarantine

Paulina Gretzky is the daughter one the greatest athletes all time, Wayne Gretzky. Unfortunately, many you on this website will never appreciate Wayne’s contributions to the great sport hockey. He has over 2800 points and has the most goals, all time. He is easily the best hockey player to ever step on the ice and was more dominant in his sport than Michael Jordan was in basketball. Having said all that, his daughter is currently engaged to golfer Dustin Johnson and has been known for her Instagram presence.

Recently, she spent some time on a boat with her sister-in-law, Samantha Johnson. The two filmed their antics for TikTok and in the video below, both can be seen in bikinis dancing to Megan Thee Stallion‘s smash hit, “Savage.” Clearly, Gretzky is having a ton fun during her quarantine, even though she should probably be at home.

As for her husband, Dustin, his season has been put on pause due to the Coronavirus. This means the two will be spending a lot more time together although we can imagine he won’t mind that too much. 

We just hope Paulina engages in better social distancing practices moving forward.

DMX Confirms He’s Working On His New Album

Nashville, TN – DMX was a guest on Tory Lanez’s recently erected Quarantine Radio show on Instagram Live, where he confirmed he was working on his new album.

Although X’s time in the session was brief, the Canadian rapper had time to praise X for all of his accomplishments, saying, “We are complete fans, right now. We fucking love everything you’ve done for Hip Hop.”

“I’m ready to do it again,” X replies. “I’m down here in Nashville, working on the album. Music don’t stop!”

Lanez then asks if X would spit a verse from the upcoming project, but he says, “You could [ask], but I probably won’t.” From there, the energy explodes as X delivers his signature growl.

X, who has battled substance abuse off-and-on for years, recently did another stint in rehab. He hasn’t dropped a project since 2015’s Redemption of the Beast but while serving time for tax evasion in 2018, he said he was looking forward to making more music.

Upon his release, he signed a new deal with Def Jam and reconnected with longtime collaborator Swizz Beatz.

Last year, X returned to the stage after getting out of rehab. During a show at Las Vegas nightclub, X delivered a powerful message to the crowd, saying, “When you fall down, get back up. Everyone here has been through some shit … and you never know what God is willing to do for you until you need him to do something for you.

It’s unclear when X plans on releasing the album.

Vanessa Bryant Posts Beautiful Video Of Kobe Gushing Over Gigi

Kobe Bryant is a legend basketball who was taken away from us too soon. He and his daughter Gianna passed away in a helicopter crash alongside seven other people back on January 26th and the whole world is still in mourning. Kobe’s wife Vanessa has been maintaining her strength throughout this challenging period and every once and a while, she takes to Instagram where she fers up a touching video her husband and second child.

In the clip below, Kobe can be seen talking about Gigi and how much he loved coaching her. It’s clear that Gianna was destined to be a great athlete and that Kobe took great pride in everything she was doing.

“She started out playing soccer, which is one my favorite sports as well,” Kobe said. “But then when she asked about learning the game basketball, I started teaching her piece by piece, and she started enjoying it and loving it and now she plays every day. It’s been a joy to watch her grow and to be there everyday for that process.”

As time goes by, these clips become harder and harder to watch as they remind us what could have been. Regardless, it’s always heartwarming to see what kind love and admiration the Lakers legend had for his daughter.

PARTYNEXTDOOR Enlists Rihanna for New Single ‘Believe It’

Rihanna returns tonight. You better believe it.

While fans wait for her long-awaited album, the superstar singer is holding them over with a new collaboration with PARTYNEXTDOOR. The OVO Sound crooner has enlisted Rihanna for “Believe It,” which is slated to be the next single off his new album PARTYMOBILE.

PND offered a preview of the rhythmic cut for his fans on Snapchat. The minute-long clip finds Rihanna singing over a laid-back groove.

The two are no strangers to collaborating. PND and Rihanna previously worked together on her ANTI tracks “Work” and “Sex with Me,” as well as DJ Khaled’s 2017 hit “Wild Thoughts.”

PARTYMOBILE, PND’s first project in two-and-a-half years, drops tonight. In addition to Rihanna, the project features the Drake-assisted single “Loyal” and the remix with Bad Bunny.

“Believe It” marks Rihanna’s first new music since her 2017 N.E.R.D. collaboration “Lemon.” She was recently in the studio with The Neptunes working on her ninth album dubbed “R9” by fans. “I like to look at it as a reggae-inspired or reggae-infused album,” she told Vogue of the follow-up to 2016’s ANTI. “It’s not gonna be typical of what you know as reggae.”

See the PARTYMOBILE tracklist below.

Help Musicians Is Sending £500 Checks to British Musicians — Here's How to Apply

Help Musicians, a near-century-old charitable organization that supports artists during times of financial difficulty, is offering £500 ($610.12) checks to musicians who’ve been impacted by the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

Compensation will be dispersed from the Coronavirus Financial Hardship Fund, and musicians who’re “suffering significant financial hardship” can apply for aid by filling out an online form.  Help Musicians has set aside £5 million (roughly $6 million) for the charitable undertaking.

The application’s questions appear relatively straightforward; basic eligibility inquiries, including one’s age, citizenship status, musical capabilities, and more can be answered with a simple click. Additional questions and a request for proof of high-level musical skill, either through a resume or video footage, follow.

Help Musicians will inform applicants of their acceptance or denial in 10 or fewer days, and funds will be transferred direct deposit into approved individuals’ accounts. Artists can apply for the £500 Coronavirus Financial Hardship payment only once, and similarly, each UK musician is eligible to receive just one payment from the support program.

Help Musicians is among several organizations that are assisting artists amid the coronavirus pandemic. The Music Producers Guild (MPG) the government to distribute support payments to music technicians and producers, and earlier today, Prime Minister Boris Johnson announced that freelance workers will be eligible to receive 80 percent of their monthly salary until the country resumes normal operations.

Stateside, the Senate’s colossal stimulus package for an array of freelance and gig workers, including musicians; the House will vote on the legislation tomorrow. The Recording Academy and MusiCares, Rihanna, and Spotify, to name some, have made multimillion-dollar donations to coronavirus relief efforts.

In other encouraging coronavirus news, a veteran epidemiologist, Neil Ferguson, indicated today that the UK will likely suffer far fewer COVID-19 casualties than he initially anticipated. Last week, the professor painted quite a grim picture of the situation, though he’s since come to believe that the crisis is manageable.

Antonio Brown’s Fate With The Buccaneers Has Been Confirmed

Antonio Brown has consistently been one the most polarizing players in the entire NFL, especially over the past couple years. This past season was particularly bad for Brown as he found himself without a team and very limited future prospects. Regardless, he has been hard at work in the gym trying to make things right. In fact, there was some hope that he could get signed to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers thanks to his connection to Tom Brady and Bruce Arians.

According to reporter Dov Kleiman, the Brown to Tampa Bay pipe dream is just that, a dream. Bruce Arians confirmed that the team will not be signing Brown as he doesn’t fit with the team. Not to mention, the financial situation probably wouldn’t make all that much sense either. All this to say, Brown won’t be playing in Tampa Bay this season.

Brown was recently asked on Instagram what his plans were for next season and whether or not he was signing with the Bucs. Brown replied to the question saying “expeditiously” although the only thing that was expeditious was Arians’ rejection.

Stay tuned for updates on free agency and what Brown plans to do next.

Antonio Brown Has Two Words For Possibly Joining The Ravens

When Antonio Brown isn’t engaging in antics that are detrimental to his career, he is actually one the best wide receivers in the entire NFL. Some feel like Brown could be one the greatest all time although his f the field issues have guaranteed that it will never happen, at least not in the immediate future. Brown is now a free agent and can go wherever he wants. The only issue is that he is at the complete mercy the NFL. His behavior has made teams want to avoid him and there is no guarantee that the league will let him play should he get a new contract.

While surfing on Instagram recently, Brown was met with the possibility signing with the Baltimore Ravens and playing with MVP winner Lamar Jackson. Brown had two words for this as he said “Scary Site.” Of course, he meant “sight” but we digress. This writer has definitely made some spelling mistakes in his time and you commenters are never shy to point them out.

Brown would certainly be a huge addition to the Ravens as he would bolster their fense and provide an elite weapon for Jackson on the perimeter. Not to mention, Brown would get to play against the Pittsburgh Steelers twice since both teams are divisional rivals.

While this scenario might be a fantasy, for now, it’s certainly interesting to think about.

Venezuelan President Charged With Drug Trafficking In U.S.

The United States has ficially charged Venezuelan president Nicolás Maduro with Narco-Terrorism, Corruption, and Drug Trafficking fenses, as confirmed by US  Attorney General William Barr. Alongside Maduro, the charges extend to the head Venezuela’s constituent assembly, the former director military intelligence, a “former high ranking general,” and more to be announced shortly. Any information leading to Maduro’s arrest will be compensated with a reward $15 million. 

A statement from the Department Justice reads Barr’s statement as follows: “For more than 20 years, Maduro and a number high-ranking colleagues allegedly conspired with the FARC, causing tons cocaine to enter and devastate American communities.  Today’s announcement is focused on rooting out the extensive corruption within the Venezuelan government – a system constructed and controlled to enrich those at the highest levels the government.”

Accusing Maduro being a member the Cártel de Los Soles since 1999, the charges allege that he has been using his position to facilitate the spread cocaine in the United States. “The Cártel de Los Soles sought to not only enrich its members and enhance their power, but also to “flood” the United States with cocaine and inflict the drug’s harmful and addictive effects on users in the United States,” reads the ficial DOJ statement. It claims that Maduro’s alliance with the FARC (Fuerzas Armadas Revolucionarias de Colombia), a “revolutionary” group involved with drug-trafficking, forms the basis the drug-charges. 

It should be noted that tensions between President Donald Trump and Maduro have been volatile late, with the former calling the latter “an illegitimate ruler, a tyrant who brutalizes his people,” and vowing that “his grip tyranny will be smashed and broken.”

Kanye West Reaffirms His Allegiance To Donald Trump: ‘I’m A Black Guy With A Red [MAGA] Hat’

Kanye West has been laying relatively low since his questionable interview on TMZ Live and wild Twitter outbursts last year. But evidently, he’ll still talk to a selected few.

This time, the reclusive artist sat down for an interview with Wall Street Journal Magazine and, once again, reaffirmed his devotion to Donald Trump.

The article, called “The Creation & Myth of Kanye West,” is the publication’s most recent cover story. The writer notes Kanye isn’t registered to vote nor does he “follow politics.” Nonetheless, he’s a huge Trump supporter.

“I’m a black guy with a red [MAGA] hat, can you imagine?” he said. “It reminded me of how I felt as a black guy before I was famous, when I would walk in a restaurant and people would look at you like you were going to steal something. ‘This is your place, Ye, don’t talk about apparel. This is your place, Ye, you’re black, so you’re a Democrat.’”

Ye’s sentiments echo ones he’s made in the past. He’s praised the current POTUS multiple times since he was voted into office in 2016.

In October 2018, Ye went to the White House where he held an awkward meeting with Trump and doubled down on his suggestion to “abolish” the 13th Amendment — something he initially said in the aforementioned TMZ Live interview.

Rocking his red “‘Make America Great Again,” he told Trump, “It’s more important than any specific deal that we bring jobs into America and that we provide a transition with mental health and the Amer-I-Can education curriculum.

“There’s a lot of things affecting our mental health that make us do crazy things that puts us back into that trap door called the 13th Amendment. I did say say abolish with the hat on because why would you build something with trap door?”

He added the MAGA hat was like his “Superman cape” and insisted liberals need to make Trump “look good,” explaining, “This is our president. He has to be the freshest. The flyest.”

Elsewhere in the WSJ interview, Kanye reveals he’s planning to work on a new album in Mexico this spring and discusses the “feasibility” of making masks to aid in the coronavirus pandemic. Trump, who was impeached earlier this year, is facing criticism for how he’s handling the COVID-19 situation, but Ye evidently doesn’t care.

IMPALA Unveils 10-Point COVID-19 Coronavirus Management Plan

The Independent Music Companies Association (IMPALA) has created a 10-point COVID-19 crisis-management plan, which features relief-minded recommendations for governments, the European Union, and the independent music industry itself.

The promptly issued response strategy comes less than one week after its COVID-19 Task Force. The first of the guide’s 10 steps calls for a “Joined-up approach across Europe”; IMPALA Executive Chair Helen Smith previously signaled that the lack of coordination among European governments and companies was negatively affecting the independent music community.

Steps two, three, and four pertain to national governments. Specifically, step two requests “clear rules on event cancellations and lockdowns,” step three asks for financial aid for affected artists and businesses, and the fourth step centers on “sector-specific compensation plans”

The IMPALA COVID-19 Task Force’s next three recommendations apply to the European Union: enhanced loan guarantees for “cultural sectors,” additional crisis-prevention measures, and an amplified awareness of and response to governments’ actions.

The European Union has taken some steps to curb the coronavirus’s spread and minimize its impact, but has left specific prevention policies—including large-gathering bans and lockdowns—to member states. Italy has instituted a full lockdown, for instance, while Sweden hasn’t closed its businesses or its schools.

IMPALA’s final three crisis-management steps focus on the music sector. Bolstered collecting efforts, better digital services (including faster payments), and increased independent-music radio airtime and promotion, respectively, constitute these latter three steps.

Speaking of the 10-point plan, IMPALA Executive Chair Helen Smith said: “This is a call for urgent action…No one should get left behind.”

Also, Francesca Trainini, who is the Chair of the Task Force, said, “The EU should monitor what is happening at national level. We also need to map the results. Italy is just one example where the music sector is crumbling.”

Italy, Spain, Germany, and France have reported over 180,000 coronavirus infections, or nearly 40 percent of worldwide cases to date. Moreover, COVID-19 has hit Italy and Spain particularly hard; the countries’ approximately 11,000 coronavirus deaths account for more than half of the global death toll.

These unfortunate points, along with a correspondingly significant economic impact, prompted IMPALA to call for a unified, calculated response.
