Jordyn Woods Lost Most Of Her Friends After Kylie Jenner Fight

Back in February, all eyes turned to Jordyn Woods when a story spread that she kissed Khloe Kardashian’s then-boyfriend, Tristan Thompson, at a party. As you probably know, this was particularly scandalous because Khloe is the half-sister Kylie Jenner, who was Jordyn’s best friend. Although Woods later clarified that Thompson tried to kiss her and it didn’t lead anywhere, Woods and Jenner have yet to rekindle their friendship. Despite the story making so many headlines, a lot remained behind closed doors and details the aftermath are still trickling out.

Woods was recently interviewed by Teen Voguein which she opened up about how she coped with this split from her best friend and overwhelmingly negative attention from the world. The primary means by which she did that was by taking up new hobbies, including puzzles, painting and binge-watching the Netflix show, Stranger Things (if that’s considered as a hobby). When asked whether she thinks what occurred between her and Kylie as a “breakup”, she posed some (pseudo-)philosophical responses, like: “What’s the definition a breakup? Does anything really end? Or is it a cycle?”. 

The 21-year-old’s mother, Elizabeth Woods, took to Instagram to commend her daughter’s candour and bravery in the Teen Vogue piece and throughout this dramatic incident. “To sit back and watch @jordynwoods go through all this mental and emotional anguish has been very emotional for us and we pray for everyone daily,” she wrote. “To watch the majority her friends leave her, not be able to go get services where she got accustomed to going and get bullied by the world, it takes a a strong ass family and individual to be able to deal with that on a daily basis”. 

Despite all this, we’re happy to see that Jordyn is bouncing back. It seems she has found a new (significantly cooler) bestie in Megan Thee Stallion, as they’ve documenting themselves up to some real hot girl shit throughout the summer. She may even have a new boyfriend, as she was spotted out in LA recently with Minnesota Timberwolves player, Karl-Anthony Towns

Rumored "PS5" Design Met With Doubt, Questions, & Memes

Playstation 5 fever has been spreading at a rapid pace. It seems as if every week a new development “leaks,” keeping Sony’s upcoming console comfortably within the public’s collective headspace. Given that Sony is currently fending f rampant Spider-Man cosplayers, some which have likely done their damndest to create home-made webbing, they need all the help they can get. Still, the PS5 remains one the most anticipated pieces technology, and will likely fly f the shelves when it eventually releases next year.

But what will it look like? Today, we may very well have gotten a glimpse at what’s to come, by way yet another well-placed “leak.” This one arrives courtesy game developer Matthew Stott, whose original Tweet served to spread like wildfire among the curious masses. The public, wary change at the best times, was immediately compelled to respond with that old familiar defense mechanism, humor. As is their right – memes are simply expected at this point, so why dete from tradition?

Yet some the more resourceful types made sure to elevate this one to a different hype plane altogether – enter, a 3D rendering, depicting a close-to-reality look at the PlayStation 5. Could this be what Sony is keeping under wraps? And if so, can you dig it?                      

Despite Getting Broiled, Scooter Braun Offers High Praise For Taylor Swift

Despite the bad blood between Scooter Braun and Taylor Swift — or perhaps because of it — Braun congratulated the singer on her latest album.

Braun made headlines after purchasing Big Machine Label Group, which stores the ultra-valuable recording catalog of Taylor Swift.   The deal was rumored to be worth $300 million and was orchestrated through Braun’s company, Ithaca Holdings, a move that enraged Swift.

In the moments after the deal, we quickly learned that Taylor Swift absolutely hates Scooter Braun.  Suddenly, Braun became Swift’s next ex-boyfriend, or some variation thereof, always an unenble role.

Swift took to Tumblr back in July to air her grievances about the deal, lamenting about the raw deal that took place.  “Essentially, my musical legacy is about to lie in the hands of someone who tried to dismantle it,” she wrote.

Now, Braun is taking the high road by praising Swift’s recent album campaign on Twitter.

Regardless of what has been said the truth is you don’t make big bets unless you are a believer and always have been. Brilliant album with #Lover,” he wrote. “Congrats @taylorswift13. Supporting was always the healthier option.”

Despite Getting Broiled, Scooter Braun Offers High Praise For Taylor Swift

Lover is Swift’s seventh studio album and one that she owns exclusively. Now, Swift has confirmed her plans to re-record and re-release all of her earlier albums to regain her IP.

At first, a move to re-record seemed out of the realm of possibility.  But apparently Swift’s contract states that from November 2020 she can start .  Accordingly, Swift will re-record her first five albums to help take some of the wind out of .

Swift has been extremely vocal about the treatment she received from Big Machine founder and Braun. Now, the re-recording option offers a nice, high-profile game of payback, with Braun himself standing to lose hundreds of millions in long-term equity as Swift dilutes her catalog with duplicates.

The specter of earlier and later versions sitting side-by-side on platforms like Spotify — with Swift urging her fans to listen to the latter — is a nightmare scenario for Braun and his investors. Whether litigation is the next step is uncertain, though Braun and Ithaca may also attempt to cancel the deal with Big Machine given the prospect of extreme asset devaluation.

Swift is one of the best-selling artists of all time.

During her career, she has sold over 150 million singles and 50 million albums. She has 10 Grammy Awards under her belt, with countless other accolades. Time Magazine has named her one of the most influential people of the year on multiple occasions.

Most recently, Swift has advocated for and has begun voicing her political opinions after years of shying away from it.  Any way you look at it, Swift wields a lot of power — including the power to drastically complicate life for Scooter Braun.

Atlantic Records Makes 6-Figure Donation To Nipsey Hussle Foundation

Los Angeles, CA – Atlantic Records gave a generous gift to the Neighborhood Nip Foundation reportedly in the sum of over six figures. The exact amount of the donation was not disclosed though payment was confirmed through Nipsey Hussle’s business partner and friend, Karen Civil to HipHopDX.

Will Smith Is Still Jada Smith’s Favourite Form Of Transportation

Jada Pinkett Smith has previously explained why she’s the happiest she’s even been in her whole entire life and it all has to do with her inner peace. “I really thought happiness had a lot to do with pleasure, and I realized that happiness is about peace,” she explained. “I am the most peaceful I’ve ever been in my life, so I am the happiest.”

Aside from her inner thoughts and feels, Jada can thank her loving family for bringing her joy, sometimes in the form little things such as her husband Will Smith giving her a piggyback when her feet hurt. The “Set It Off” actress shared an image to Instagram that sees Will carry her outside an airport. “When your feet hurt…” she captioned he image. 

While Jada and Will are clear couple goals, the 47-year-old previously opened up on how his appearance on her Red Table Talk series is to show that marriages aren’t perfect. “What was really important about Will and I doing that show together — two things — first all was to get rid the idea that people in the public eye have perfect relationships. We were kind sick living up to that,” she explained. 

“Will being the successful guy that he is and being willing to share what his pitfalls were in the relationship and in his family, you can’t imagine how many other successful men called and said, ‘Wow, my wife has been saying the same thing for years. Because you said it, it opened my eyes and because you said it, now I’m willing to listen,'” she added.

 

The 1975 Refuse to Produce New T-Shirts Because It Harms the Environment, Choosing Instead to Recycle Their Older T-Shirts

British pop band The 1975 have come up with a novel approach to both help the environment and get some good publicity at the same time.

Instead of producing T-shirts in connection with their upcoming album, the band is going to print over their existing stock of tees from past albums and concert tours.  They are also encouraging their fans to get their old tees refreshed with the new design.

With the band’s latest album Notes On A Conditional Form set to be released February 21st, 2020, frontman Matt Healy wrote in an Instagram post explaining that all shirts they will be selling at shows in support of the new record would be reconditioned from old ones.  He also mentioned that at the band’s upcoming shows, in the English cities of Leeds and Reading, fans can bring their old shirts, whether they be 1975 shirts or not, and get them refreshed with the band’s new design.

“You will also be able to bring any old 1975 shirt or ANY bands you love shirts to Reading [and Leeds] festival and have the same print done over the top there”, he added.

The 1975 are not the first people to come up with the idea of printing over old concert T-shirts.

Infamously, Kendall and Kylie Jenner sold expensive vintage tees with their images superimposed over famous music artists, such as the Doors, Notorious B.I.G. and Tupac Shakur.  This got the sisters in big legal trouble, but the 1975 are largely superimposing onto their old t-shirts.  And there’s no law against changing a t-shirt you’ve already purchased.

The move to more sustainable T-shirts is not the only environmentally conscious activity the 1975 has been up to.

The first track off their new album, which just happens to be called ‘The 1975,’ was recorded with Greta Thunberg, who is a noted environmental activist. The band is further donating all the proceeds from this track to Extinction Rebellion, which is an environmental campaign group.

The 1975 were formed in 2002, but they did not record their first album until 2013. They have since had 3 number one albums in the United Kingdom.

Cardi B’s Former “Muscle” Busted For Selling Crack: Report

It appears one Cardi B’s “muscle” guys were busted for selling crack yesterday. PageSix reports that Brooklyn native Jeffrey Bush, who allegedly served as “muscle” for Cardi during her Queens strip club brawl last year, was arrested yesterday at his Williamsburg home for selling $12,000 worth crack cocaine. Police say they found a bag “believed to be crack” along with pills, pot, a scale, and nearly $15,000 in cash.

Bush pleaded not guilty at an arraignment Thursday afternoon in Brooklyn federal court and was held without bail with prosecutors arguing that his connection to Cardi B made him a “flight risk.”

“Based on the defendant’s prit from just the crack sales … as well as the celebrity connection with Cardi B], he has myriad means at his disposal to enable his flight,” a detention memo states.

It was last August when Bush & Cardi hurled bottles Champagne at two bartender sisters at Angels Strip Club in Queens, New York. One sisters was allegedly thought to be sleeping with Cardi’s husband Offset, so Cardi and her “muscle” took action. Reports say one the sisters had her head slammed into the bar. As a result, the hip-hop star and Bush have both pleaded not guilty to charges including attempted assault, harassment, conspiracy and criminal solicitation. The case is still pending though.

Bush is due back in court for this drug charge on Sept. 10th.

Funk Flex Accuses Jermaine Dupri of Backpedaling On Jay Z Conversation

The did-he-or-didn’t-he saga between Jermaine Dupri and Jay Z continues. Recently, Jay Z stood accused thwarting Dupri’s attempts at securing a Super Bowl halftime deal with the NFL, only to ink one his own with Roc Nation. Both Funk Flex and producer Brian Michael Cox came forward to confirm that information, and Flex even stated that he spoke with Dupri about it one on one.

I JUST GOT OFF THE PHONE WITH JERMAINE DUPRI. HE CONFIRMED THAT WHEN HE WAS WORKING WITH THE NFL LAST YEAR HE DID GET A CALL FROM JAYZ ASKING HIM ‘HOW DEEP ARE U IN WITH THE NFL?’ EXPRESSING… ‘THAT MIGHT NOT BE A GOOD IDEA,'” Flex wrote. However, Dupri shared with Atlanta’s V-103 radio station that he was never in talks with the NFL over a Super Bowl show and Jay didn’t tell him not to do anything.

He and I never had a conversation where he told me don’t do what you’re doing,” Dupri said about Jay. When the denial made the media rounds, Flex shared the video clip Dupri’s visit to V-103 and accused the mega-producer going back on his word. “Hahahah! I love you Jermaine for life! NFL / ROCNATION applying that pressure for YOU to backpedal!” Flex wrote in the caption. :(Body Language is everything) ITS WEDNESDAY BRUH? THIS HAPPENED MONDAY? ( I finally understand what Kap / Nessa been Experiencing! )”

MTV’s Accused Of Stalking With Upcoming Show "Ghosted"

Being ignored by a romantic interest is something nearly everyone has experienced at least once. In today’s lingo it’s called being “ghosted,” and it has become its own cultural phenomenon. People can go from texting every day with a partner to receiving radio silence from someone they’re dating. It leaves the lovelorn with unanswered questions, and MTV is hoping to bring the confrontation element  Catfish to another series with their show MTV’s Ghosted: Love Gone Missing.

The series will be hosted by The Bachelorette‘s Rachel Lindsay and recording artist Travis Mills. MTV states that “the two hosts] will help distraught individuals track down and confront a former lover, friend, or family member in an effort to uncover the harsh realities why they ‘ghosted’ them.” While all the intense emotions will, undoubtedly, be good for ratings, not everyone thinks that the premise is a good idea.

People began to question if tracking down someone who decided to disappear from a person’s life is just low-level stalking. The teaser trailer the show features people from all backgrounds who have been blocked or ignored, but because they’re so emotionally invested, they’ve reached out to the network to demand answers.

“Y’all are going way too far,” one person tweeted. “If someone ghosted you, then leave them be. That is them telling you that they do not want you to be apart their life for a particular reason.” There were many others who shared that sentiment. Check out the trailer, and a few reactions, below.
