KFC To Roll Out Mac & Cheese Bowls This Week

While the internet continue to debate over which chicken sandwich is better between Popeyes & Chick-Fil-A, fast-food chain KFC is turning its attention to macaroni and cheese. Kentucky Fried Chicken announced the other day that they plan on rolling out Mac & Cheese bowls starting this Monday, August 26th.

Served as a main dish, the $5 bowls combine mac and cheese with popcorn chicken, which is topped with a three-cheese blend, KFC said in a statement. Consumers can also try a spicy version with Nashville hot sauce as well.

“Mac and Cheese has a cult-like following, and bowl food is a trend that isn’t going away anytime soon,” said Andrea Zahumensky, KFC’s chief marketing ficer in the U.S., in a statement.

However, KFC wasn’t the first chain to embrace the popular mac & cheese bowl. Earlier this month, Chick-fil-A added mac and cheese to its menu as a side dish, a kid’s meal or as part a catering order. All this talk about mac & cheese got me hungry now.

Peep a photo the bowl right here and look for it at a nearby KFC this Monday.

Chrissy Teigen Goes Braless In New IG Post

It’s 2019 and some Chrissy Tiegen’s followers are still worked up about a bra. The thirty-three-year-old model posted a photo herself shopping on Thursday in a burgundy jumpsuit. She looks to be shopping for toys for her kids with an excited face. “What do you think I’m looking at,” she writes for the caption.

It’s this innocuous question that many fans decided to pounce on. “A bra, girl get you one!” one commenter wrote. In the photo, Tiegen is braless and going about her day in comfort. One commenter defended the model’s choice saying, “All these WOMEN commenting on the fact she’s not wearing a bra 🙄 y’all are just jealous that you don’t have the confidence to do it too because we all know bras are the worst thing in existence.” 

This isn’t the first time Tiegen has faced criticism online. Just last month fans body shammed her on twitter; to which she responded, “everyone so used to ass shots and photoshopped Instagrams. I’ve had no ass forever – is this new news to some you?” adding, “fuckin lames wouldn’t be able to stop blabbering if I got my ass done either. bored as all hell, never can win!”

Oregon Police Digitally Edit Mugshot To Match Witnesses Description Of Bank Robber

Police in Oregon were confident they had their man in Tyrone Lamont Allen. They received a tip that he was the man responsible for a string bank and credit union robberies; however, they faced one glaring issue. Allen is loaded in face tattoos, but none the witnesses claim the assailant had any facial tattoos to speak . 

So what did police do? As reported by The Washington Post, rather than let Allen walk free, they decided to digitally photoshop the tattoos f their suspects face and show his mugshot to witnesses. Police did not inform witnesses that the mugshot had been photoshopped to match their description. Two tellers then picked Allen out a lineup five other men’s mugshots, identifying him as the robber.

On the surface, this seems like a case blatant tampering with evidence, but ultimately, that decision will come down to a federal judge in Oregon. Allen’s attorney, Mark Ahlemeyer, believes allowing this type police behavior is a slippery slope injustice. “There would presumably be nothing wrong with adjusting various pixels to make someone’s face appear slimmer, so long as the government’s theory was that the suspect had gained weight since the crime,” the attorney wrote in a recent motion.

Perhaps most concerning about this story, is what the ficer who altered the image said in his testimony, “There are times it has been appropriate to make those small subtle changes. The main purpose is not to make the suspect stand out.’’ This is a clear allusion to having used the tactic in the past, and apparently, including this methodology in a report isn’t a requirement.

“I was involved in the process from the inception of the project,” Haughton told Vibe. “The team at Madame Tussauds welcomed a collaborative effort in choosing the pose and look of my sister’s figure. They made sure my mother and I were comfortable and supported through an amazing but understandably emotional process.”

The design team at Madame Tussauds in London made sure that all of Aaliyah’s family’s requests were honored, including her tattoos. “One thing we made sure to include was all of my sister’s tattoos,” added Haughton, who was on hand for the unveiling. “They are all quite hidden because my sister chose strategic places for them due to her on-camera film work.

Nipsey Hussle’s Friend Dies After Cursing Out Police In New York

According to reports by several sources, including the New York Post, one Nipsey Hussle‘s friends has been pronounced dead after a shooting in New York. Arsenio Gravesande, a known member the Crips, was struck by a bullet in his left hip and when police ficers rushed to help the man, he reportedly cursed them out using his final breaths.

Officers had asked the 28-year-old if he had any knowledge who his shooter was and with his last bit energy, Gravesande mustered up enough to blurt out the following statement: “Fuck you, son!” The man’s refusal to help the police identify his shooter came after five fatal shootings were reportedly recorded within twenty-four hours in New York.

The Air Jordan 12 will reportedly return to retailers this fall in a “Reverse Taxi” colorway, featuring a “Black/White-Taxi-Black” color scheme.

As seen in the latest photos posted by @SolebyJC, the kicks are decked out in a presumably buttery st black suede.

Cardi B Refers To Herself As “A Gangster” During Recent Deposition: Report

Cardi B is involved in a lawsuit with a photographer named Kevin Michael Brophy Jr., who accuses her using a photo his tattoo on her mixtape cover without his permission. So back in April, Cardi participated in a deposition for the suit in NYC, which a judge recently ruled was to be made public, and boy was it entertaining. 

The Blast was able to obtain the transcript, which finds Cardi getting heated with the opposition for wasting her time during the lengthy 4-hour interview. Cardi was asked about her business in California, the use the photo on her mixtape, and various other topics relating to her career.

When questioned about the mixtape tattoo photo being used, Cardi said, “I never really cared to, like see, because I didn’t give a fuck. I cared for me, and it was, like, all about me … I didn’t give a fuck about this tattoo. I didn’t give a fuck about none that shit. So, when it comes to that, you need to go to the photographer, or whoever edited this shit, because that’s who did it — clearly.”

Later on, Cardi would refer to herself as “a gangster” when asked about the image she was trying to put out there with the album cover. “I mean I am I am a gangster. Like, I feel like I am a gangster, like I’m a gangsta. You know? I’m a stand-up girl. You know what I’m saying.” She continued, “Like I’m not a pretty girl, or I am a pretty girl. But I’m not like this, this pink girly girl … I’m like the Buttercup, you know? There’s three powerful girls. There’s Blossom and there’s Bubbles and there’s Buttercup, the green one. That’s me. That’s who I am.”

Before closing things out, Cardi would go on to call the lawsuit nothing more than a waste her time. She said, “Like, I could really be with my kid right now. Like, I’m really upset because I really have to be with my kid. All because some bullshit trying to get money and then $5,000,000, Are you fucking kidding me? That mixtape didn’t even make, not even a million dollars.”

Cardi added, “I got real lawsuits with real shit, and I got to deal with this bullshit. This is four hours long taking away from my time, my job, my motherhood.” And with that said, the deposition ended shortly after that was said.

T.I., Busta Rhymes & Others Fall For Instagram Rule Change Hoax

On Tuesday, a ton celebrities were reposting on Instagram a screenshot a paragraph in opposition to new guidelines that the app was supposedly adopting. The message warned that starting the following day, Instagram would own your content, meaning it would have the authorization to use anything you have posted against you, whether deleted or not. People were sharing this photo to explicitly express their denial this authorization: “I do not give Instagram or any entities associated with Instagram permission to use my pictures, information, messages or posts, both past and future.” The message even went as far as to cite legal justifications for the privacy and ownership one’s content. 

Understandably, this frightened many, especially rappers who ten post questionable or incriminating stuff that could leave them targeted for probation violation, for example. However, turns out all this hysteria was for nothing. Instagram dispelled these rumors with a brief message from their brand communications manager, Stephanie Otway: “There’s no truth to this post”.  

Perhaps the invalidity this post was foreseeable, given it all the grammatical errors in it and possessing the paranoia a chain email your grandmother would send you. But as the paragraph stated and many captioned their posts, “better safe than sorry”.
