Iggy Azealia Claps Back At "Crackhead" Wendy Williams For Fake Body Remarks

Not many people are fans  Iggy Azalea‘s music, including herself. For the most part, she minds her business these days until something negative is said about her. At that point, she has no reason to hold her tongue.

Many people have been championing Wendy Williams for living her “best life” ever since her divorce with Kevin Hunter but it seems many forget that she makes a living f tearing others down. Most recently, she threw some shade at Iggy Azalea by calling her “the Australian girl with a fake body.”

Wendy Williams isn’t really one to be talking about other people’s bodies but that’s another story. Iggy caught wind the comments and fired back on Twitter. Quoting the clip from the episode, Iggy Azalea wrote, “Who’s the crack head in the half way house with the gossip show thing?”

Adding, “Wendy Williams is a walking mike tyson tribal tattoo slapped over a deeply set c-section scar. I’ve had enough.”

For context, Wendy Williams was discussing Nicki Minaj‘s apparent decision to retire from the rap game to start a family. She discussed whether or not Nicki could retire and make a come back with the same amount hype around her name. She used Iggy as an example, claiming that people were waiting for her to drop a new project. That’s when she made the comments about Iggy’s body. 

Le’Veon Bell’s Baby Mama Hints At Relationship With Antonio Brown

Another woman has come forward with details about her relationship with Antonio Brown, but she isn’t accusing the All Pro receiver any wrongdoing. The issue here is that the woman, Cherise, is Le’Veon Bell’s baby mama.

Cherise responded to a series questions on her instagram story recently, during which she hinted at a relationship with Bell’s former Steelers teammate. For instance, when asked directly about “getting down” with AB, Cherise would only confirm that her week was “Boomin,” an obvious play on Brown’s favorite slogan. She also described her love for the Rolls-Royce Wraith, a car that Brown owns – although that doesn’t necessarily mean they’re smashing.

In addition to hints about AB’s Wraith and her “Boomin” week, she also tagged Foxborough, Massachusetts as the location in one her recent photos. Check out the screen shots her recent IG story below.

Le'Veon Bell's Baby Mama Hints At Relationship With Antonio Brown

Cherise’s alleged involvement with Antonio Brown comes amid numerous ual assault allegations against the 31-year old receiver, including a lawsuit filed by is former trainer. The NFL is currently investigating the claims, and Brown has maintained his innocence from the start.

When asked about Brown’s situation earlier this week, Bell told ESPN’s Dianna Russini that AB is a good dude.

“Sometimes, it’s kinda hard to overcome when a lot negative things are happening or when people are saying a lot negative things about you,” the running back said Brown. “It’s like a snowball effect. It happened to me when I had my suspension. I don’t ever wanna get too low on myself. I hope Antonio’s doing the same thing. If I had to give him advice, that’s what I’d give him.”

Bell added: “If you know AB personally, you’ll know that he’s like, a good person. He’s not really trying to harm anybody. Maybe there’s something he wants and he’s trying to achieve it. He might go a different way about it than other people would but, it is what it is.”

XXXTentacion’s Murder Suspect Wants Out Of Jail; Asks Judge To Set Bond

It appears one the men accused murdering XXXTentacion believes he should be allowed out jail while he awaits trial. According to a report from TheBlast, suspect Trayvon Newsome’s lawyer is demanding the judge grant his client bond.

His lawyer states, “defendant is presently being denied bond. Defendant is entitled to bond as a matter or right, unless pro is evidence and the presumption guilt is great.” He believes Newsome is entitled to pre-trial release and is requesting a hearing be set.

Newsome has been serving time behind bars ever since August 7th 2018 when he was first arrested as a suspect. He is currently being charged with 1st degree murder and robbery with a firearm. The other men charged for the murder were Dedrick Williams, Michael Boatwright and Robert Allen.

A judge has yet to rule whether or not Newsome will be granted his wish for bond, but one has to think if it hasn’t happened yet, it’s probably unlikely to. Either way, we’ll be sure to keep you posted moving forward. Should a murder suspect be allowed out on bond or nah?

Selena Gomez Is Producing Netflix Documentary 'Living Undocumented'

Selena Gomez is set to serve as an executive producer for Living Undocumented, a Netflix documentary series that will follow the journeys of eight undocumented-immigrant families.

The show’s first season will release on Netflix on October 2nd; eight real-life families volunteered to be filmed for the work. Netflix recently posted a two-minute trailer of the program, which had garnered about 40,000 views at the time of writing.

Living Undocumented‘s official description reads: “Eight undocumented families’ fates roller-coast as the United States’ immigration policies are transformed.” Living Undocumented is described as “provocative” and “emotional” by Netflix.

Predictably, many have come out in favor of Living Undocumented, while many others have voiced their opposition to the series.

Though Gomez continues to be involved in the music industry, she’s dedicated a large chunk of the last seven years to developing her acting career. She’s voiced Marvis in each of the three Hotel Transylvania films that have been released to date (a fourth is scheduled to hit theaters in 2021, and Gomez has already signed on to reprise her character).

This year, Selena Gomez has had roles in The Dead Don’t Die (which also featured Bill Murray and Steve Buscemi) and Woody Allen’s A Rainy Day in New York. Gomez has provided her voice to Dolittle, which stars Robert Downey Jr. and will debut in theaters in 2020.

Stated in short, Gomez’s interest in the film and television industry isn’t new. Moving forward, it seems that the 27-year-old will continue to attach her name to projects that she finds personally interesting—even if she’s not part of the on-screen cast.

Gomez’s most recent studio album, Revival, dropped in 2015. The work received mostly positive reviews from critics and sold well. Selena embarked on the Revival Tour, a 55-show concert series, to support the album. She is reportedly working on a new studio album, but little reliable information has been made available.

Here’s a trailer for Living Undocumented.

 

Summer Walker & London On Da Track Prove Again That They’re Cute As Hell

It must be really special to have a romantic partner who is also your artistic collaborator. Summer Walker and London On Da Track scored this ideal dynamic when finding each other. The two hit it f so well that the Atlanta-bred producer – known best for his spectacular work with Young Thug – is now producing Summer’s entire debut album. Last week, the singer-songwriter finally announced Over It‘s release date, which will be October 4.

Although the record’s lead single, “Playing Games”, chronicles Summer being fed up with her man, based on recent social media activity, it seems Summer and London can’t get enough each other. London shared a video on Instagram him cuddled up on the couch with his boo, with the caption, “Shit hit different when you the only one in it.” The couple takes turns playing with each other’s faces in the adorable clip. 

The Interscope songstress is so committed to London that she was even willing to fight on his behalf. When London posting an Instagram photo with Summer the other day, suggesting that he wants to impregnate her, some baby mamas furiously responded in the comments that he should tend to his existing children before producing some more. A screenshot was then shared by one the baby mamas, showing that Summer had slid in her DMs threatening to square up for slandering her man. If that isn’t love, then I don’t know what is. 

Almost as cute as this relationship is Summer’s new teddy bear face tattoo

#DXCLUSIVE: MaLLy Resurfaces With "Anymore" From "The Journey To A Smile" LP

HipHopDX Premiere – After a lengthy hiatus, MaLLy is back with a new track called “Anymore.” The song comes from his forthcoming The Journey To A Smile album, which will serve as his first project since 2014’s The Colors Of Black featuring Slug of Atmosphere. 

“I am pretty damn proud of this album and excited for people to listen to it,” he tells HipHopDX. “The messages and themes that kept coming up for me were around self-empowerment, spirituality, being happy with what you have and defining who you are.

“Creating this record caused me to fall back in love with making music, live life in the moment, spend little to no time on social media and remove alcohol from my diet completely. I gained so much clarity and truly believe it was meant to be this way. This newfound mental space and perspective is one I intend to work with from here on out.”

MaLLy took a step back a few years ago to refocus. He explains how working with a producer PC has reinvigorated his love for making music, leading to more self-confidence.

“Working with PC (the main producer) was a breath of fresh air because his sound was completely different than any other producer I had worked with,” he adds. “From the samples all the way down to the infectious basslines and alluring keys it was a match.

“Also, the conversations we had inspired me to write from some vulnerable places that liberated me from all the internal voices of self-doubt I had in my head.”

The Journey To A Smile arrives on September 24.

In the meantime, listen to “Anymore” above.

Steph Curry Reveals Plans To Play In 2020 Olympics

Team USA’s participation in the 2019 FIBA World Cup was a total failure as the Americans finished seventh in the tournament, marking their worst finish ever. Although the roster didn’t include the United States’ best players, it was still a supremely disappointing finish and one that will linger until Team USA takes the court again next summer.

And fans should expect a much different outcome when Team USA heads to Tokyo for the 2020 Olympics. In a recent interview with ESPN’s Rachel Nichols, two-time NBA MVP Stephen Curry announced that he plans to represent Team USA next Summer, which would be his first time ever competing on the Olympic team.

“That is the plan, for sure,” Curry tells Nichols. “You know, obviously knock on wood, you don’t want any injuries or things like that to interfere.”

“Definitely wanna go,” Curry said. “I’ve never been on the Olympic team. I’ve been on two World Cup championship gold-medal teams. But the Olympics is the experience that I want. And next year will hopefully be it.”

It remains to be seen if the NBA’s other superstars will follow his lead, but Curry seems confident that the roster will look a whole lot different when the games begin in Tokyo.

“We’re still the best,” Curry said. “If we get the guys that are supposed to be there, in terms , you know, representing us in the Olympic stage and the commitment’s been there, and I think it’ll be there next year.”

Whitney Houston Hologram Tour Dates Have Been Announced

Whitney Houston is coming to a city near you. In May, we reported that Houston’s estate was entertaining the possibility using past images and videos to create a hologram performance the late singer. It looks as if they moved forward with the idea with gusto because on Tuesday the first set the Evening With Whitney: The Whitney Houston Hologram Tour dates were announced. 

The world lost a powerhouse singer in 2012 when Houston was found dead an overdose in her Beverly Hills Hotel room during Grammy weekend. Since that time, and even while she was alive, there have been jokes made at Houston’s expense, so her estate wants to carry on her legacy by highlighting her impact and accomplishments.

“A hologram show is all about the imagination and creating a ‘wow factor’ that extends to an incredible experience to enjoy for years to come,” said Pat Houston, Whitney’s former manager and CEO her estate. “Whitney is not with us but her music will live with us forever. We know we made the right decision partnering with BASE because they understand how important it is to produce a phenomenal hologram.”

In addition to a hologram figure Whitney, there will also be backup dancers, singers, and a live band. The Evening With Whitney: The Whitney Houston Hologram Tour kicks f in January in Mexico and, for now, is set to run until April. More dates are expected to be announced soon. Other hologram shows and tours that have been attempted in the past included artists like Maria Callas, Roy Orbison, Tupac Shakur, Michael Jackson, and Frank Zappa.

2 Chainz Is Evidently In Album Mode: Listen To A New Snippet

On Saturday, a video was shared from the inside 2 Chainz’s 42nd birthday party, in which he announced that he’s “about to drop an album.” He was so stoked f the birthday energy that he even revealed some more details about the project. It will feature “young” and “undiscovered’ artists. He listed Skooly, Cap.1 and C-White afterwards, so it’s likely that they will be contributors. These artists are all members his T.R.U. label (The Real University). He probably wants to shine a spotlight on them, since his last album, Rap Or Go To The League exclusively featured big names, like Kendrick Lamar, Chance the Rapper and Ariana Grande. However, Tity Boi did tease in July that he made “the hardest song in the world” with Future, so I don’t know where this superstar collaboration will fit into the whole “undiscovered” theme.  

Even before 2 Chainz announced this news at his party and played the first single (titled “Shootout”), he’s been frequently posting song previews on his Instagram page. He usually records himself bopping or smoking along to a track he just recorded while he’s still in the studio, making it seem like he’s so blown away by the bars he just laid down in the booth that he feels urged to share them immediately. If this is the case, it makes total sense. 2 Chainz has been rapping his ass f for over two decades and he’s reached the point in his career where he should feel like the GOAT. 

Listen to the new snippet below, in which he notably raps:

“She staring at me, cause I’m lookin’ like it
I know I can hit, I’m a fucking psychic
Ass so fat, put it on the back a motorcycle”

Blac Chyna Is Dripping Wet In Sexy BTS Of Pool Photoshoot

Blac Chyna may be fighting to get a $2 million cyberbullying case dropped while defending her honour as a single mother who gets no child support from her exes, but all that doesn’t mean she’s still not continuing her hustle on the side. After recently posting an image herself in the studio teasing the arrival some new music, the mother two has now shared a behind the scenes clip a photoshoot that sees her lounging in a pool.

We can’t confirm what the shoot is for but considering the latter, it may very well be the accompanying art for her new music. “Sweet like Juicy Fruit,” she captioned the clip. 

While Blac fleshes out her pursuit into the music industry with some fans on her side, K. Michelle is one woman who isn’t as supportive Blac’s music endeavors. “This industry is the only industry where a mothaf*cka can just walk in without an audition,” K. Michelle said. “This music is something you fight for your whole life. It’s not something that you just automatically know that you wanna do. This be people’s last resort.”

Rihanna Responds To Rumors That She’ll Be Playing Poison Ivy In "The Batman"

Rumors started circulating at the beginning the month that Warner Bros. was eyeing Rihanna for the role Poison Ivy in The Batman, which will star Robert Pattinson and is set to release in 2021. While these speculations may have easily stemmed from an unreliable source, many publications picked up the story (guilty) and people started freaking out at the possibility RiRi in this iconic role. However, the Anti artist added fuel to the flame by posting a video on Instagram her Fenty leather-rubber boots with the caption, “bat-mobile but make it fashion.” She should’ve known better than to tease us like that because, once we see her rocking something like that, our imaginations are obviously gonna run f with it. 

Well, Entertainment Tonight got the honor talking to Rihanna at her 5th annual Diamond Ball in New York City last week and they asked her if there was any truth to these rumors. Rihanna played like she had no idea that fans were putting together collages her previous looks that resembled those the villain, or perhaps she truly had no idea. She was shocked that her boot video played a role in sparking this speculation. “Oh that?! Really? That!? Are you serious?” she said. “No that has nothing to do with Poison Ivy. That post] has to do a lot with Batman because] I have separate obsessions.”

However, she did confirm that she might be interested in the role were it to be fered to her because she’s a huge Poison Ivy stan, particularly Uma Thurman’s 1997 portrayal the character. “I have bigger obsession with Poison Ivy, I’m just being honest. And yeah, I died my hair red because Uma Thurman in the original. You know what, they didn’t call me yet. But if they did, I would love to go in and try out because Poison Ivy is one my obsessions in life,” she shared. “I did it for Halloween one year, I mean come on!”

Similarly, people are frantically pushing for Teyana Taylor to be cast as Catwoman, after it was rumored that The Batman director, Matt Reeves, was hoping for a woman color for the role

Giannis Antetokounmpo Could Be Pursued By Warriors In 2021

Giannis Antetokounmpo is one the best players in the entire NBA and in some people’s eyes, he is top three in the league right now. No matter how you feel about Giannis, there is no denying his talent and everything he means to the Milwaukee Bucks organization. In a recent interview, the team’s general manager Jon Horst confirmed the team would fer him a five-year, $247 million supermax deal in 2021 and that they would commit to him long term. 

So far, Giannis has given no indication that he would want to leave the Bucks and even seems committed to spending his whole career there. The Greek Freak doesn’t seem like the kind player to up and leave just for the chance playing with a super team. Despite this, according to Ramonda Shelburne, the Golden State Warriors are rumored to be considering a run at Giannis once he hits the free agent market.

“The Warriors have always been a big threat to go after Giannis,” Shelburne said on The Jump. “One, he’s friends with Steph Curry. He has that same agency…  It would be a difficult construction to make happen, but that is that one looming threat. And it comes down to what kind guy is Giannis. What does he want his legacy to be.”

If the Warriors do get Giannis, that would cement them as being one the most resilient franchises in the league when it comes to forming super teams. It would take a lot for this to happen although the very idea it should scare NBA fans.

Cam Newton Injury Status Updated As Panthers Reveal Foot Problem

If you’re a Carolina Panthers fan, the start to this season has been disastrous. The team started out with a loss to the Los Angeles Rams and then lost to a divisional rival and frequent bottom feeder, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Quarterback Cam Newton has not looked like himself so far and it’s starting to be concerning for the team and its supporters.

Today, the Panthers were given even more bad news as according to Adam Schefter, Newton suffered a foot injury during the team’s loss to the Bucs. The superstar QB wasn’t at practice today and according to the team’s general manager, there is no timeline for a return right now.

The Panthers are set to take on the Arizona Cardinals this Sunday and it’s unclear if Newton will be able to participate in that game. At 0-2, the next match is a must-win scenario or the team can pretty well kiss their playf chances goodbye. It’s almost impossible to make the playfs after starting 0-3 so Panthers fans better hope they get Newton back soon.

Stay tuned for updates on Newton’s injury as we will be sure to bring you the latest information throughout the week. It’s been a rough week for starting QBs.
