ti and tiny

 

The rumors are not true!

 

T.I. & Tiny are not separated or heading for divorce. Not by the a long shot. Yesterday, the Internet was buzzing over cryptic messages the modern-day Huxtables posted on their Instagram pages that hinted at trouble in paradise. While T.I. and Tiny’s close friend Shekinah denounced the he said, she said and suggested we don’t believe the hype, fans were still concerned that their favorite Mr. and Mrs. were throwing in the marriage towel.

 

It turns out, T.I. and Tiny just got into a common argument. He responded to the negative rumors, telling TMZ:

 

There was a big argument, but it was over something pretty stupid. Tiny wanted to walk the Grammy red carpet and watch the show but T.I. wanted none of it. He says they angrily challenged each other on who would end up having more fun that night.

T.I. says the next morning … they mended fences.

 

Now, it is folks you can move on to other stories. We’re so glad to hear this!

According to Afrostyle  songstress-India Arie, the Grammy Awards purposely exclude young black people and gives no shine to their craft.

Joining the many voices, India was in disagreement with the fact uber-talented hip hop lyricist Kendrick Lamar failed to take home any Grammys over the weekend, the songstress said

Though it’s called “Music industries biggest night” the #Grammys are NOT about the music, it’s a popularity contest. The voting process allows people, to vote on name recognition alone – the music industry politics is a whole NUTHER conversation. Too much to go into here.

The American Music Awards is a show that awards sales and popularity – the #Grammys are SAID to be about the music.

If the hip hop community voted on hip hop – r&b COMMUNITY the same – same for each category – we’d see winners that reflect the MUSIC ITSELF. We all know that’s just not the way it goes.

She continued;

NOW the BIGGER losers, are ALL of black music. Where was the black music community represented in last nights #Grammy show? Performers and Winners (or not) … Where were the black artists?

And this isn’t the first time the #Grammy’s has had a show all but excluding young black America and black artists in general, although we set the worlds musical trends. Why NOT televise the lifetime achievement awards of the Isley Brothers? SURELY they deserved to be on televised stage LAST NIGHT! While other artists were on stage TWICE?

The truth is in a perfect world diversity would matter, and respect would be rampant, but the TRUTH is, The #Grammys is a television show, and in THAT world ratings reign supreme. So, in general, bigger names take the stage, and sadly the biggest names often times ARE BIGGER drawn along racial lines from the release of an album. i.e. marketing dollars, and just general support. It’s unfortunate.

I don’t even get surprised any more, but, it still hits my sense of fairness, because I KNOW many of the artists who are overlooked. I LIVE in that world. We keep showing up and subjecting ourselves to the game, hoping MAYBE we’ll win. I was so HAPPY to see @Kendricklamar take that stage – because it is a FORM of winning, at LEAST, he was SEEN.

Speaking of diversity, congratulations to my PERSONAL favorite albums of the year – @I_GregoryPorter #LiquidSpirit @Realsnarkypuppy and @lalahhathaway on your win and THANK YOU! @pharrell for acting RIGHT in the presence of the greatness that is @Nilerodgers and #StevieWonder

Love to all #SoulBirdsWorldWide

@IndiaArie

P.S. No mention of Nelson Mandela at ALL? … and THIS is why we NEED the Image Awards AND the BET awards.Do you agree with India on this?

President Obama Delivers State Of The Union Address At U.S. Capitol

 

 

 

Michelle Obama always delivers in the style department and last night at the State of the Union Address was no exception, as she donned a custom-made forest green(emerald) Azzedine Alaïa cardigan and dress from the Tunisian-born designer’s collection.

FLOTUS ’s relationship with the designer isn’t a new one, back in 2011 she wore a black dress from Alaïa to the NATO concert in Baden-Baden, Germany. The designer is known for coming to defense of  the First Lady when designer Oscar de la Renta had some commentary about the First Lady’s style back in 2011. He is noted to have said  “It’s not up to him to give her lessons; Michelle Obama is of her time; Oscar de la Renta is no longer.”

You can watch the whole State of the Union speech here.

KANYE WEST SETTLES MAN HE ASSAULTED IN BEVERLY HILLS WITH $250,000

Posted on Updated on

 

 

 

Get assaulted by Kanye West for $250,000. Okay, that is a joke. But the real news is that Kanye  West had to settle the man he beat up in the waiting room of Beverly Hills chiropractor  with $ 250,000 for calling his woman the w- word and other derogatory words,

according to TMZ,

The young man who allegedly hurled racial epithets at Kim earlier this month has agreed to the civil settlement and now feels satisfied enough that he does not want to go forward with a criminal prosecution. Law enforcement sources tell us … the D.A. has not decided whether to charge Kanye with battery. The reality is … there’s almost no chance of that happening.  First, the D.A. now has an uncooperative victim. Second, the victim’s alleged racial epithets will not sit well with the jury. And there are probably lots of Kanye fans in the jury pool. We’re told during the settlement negotiations the victim’s demand soared to the upper 6 figures, so $250K is just a fraction.We called Kanye’s civil lawyer, Shawn Holley for comment … but we got nothin’.Nevertheless … we’re calling it case closed.” TMZ reports
