FACTS OR REACHING?: Queen Naija Claps Back At Pastor Who Accuses Her Of Ripping Off His Song

The good Lawd blessed them with the same melodies.

Last summer, Queen Naija was accused of stealing some of John P. Kee’s musical property. Her track, “Karma,” appeared to hold a likeness to the pastor’s song called “Life & Favor.” Although the singer had responded to these allegations back in July, affirming that she had come up with “Karma” on her own, Kee is still gunning for justice for what he deems to be copyright infringement.

The issue was back on Naija’s radar this week. She took to Twitter to air out her frustrations: “why is this man tryna sue me for something I didn’t do.. lol ? He need to gone somewhere & preach the word of God.”

The award-winning gospel star had previously expressed that he bears no ill will towards Queen personally.
“…never would I try to shame a young artist! But be advised I’m not just an old Gospel artist! I’m a business man,” he reportedly stated.“I’ve been a publisher for over 35 years. This is bigger than her. Staff, producers, management, agents, etc. should have handled this properly out the gate!”

This came in response to Queen Naija’s original objection, which stated, ” That Gospel song was nowhere in my mind. Y’all act like people can’t think of the same melodies, and trust me. That melody ain’t nothing crazy. People will take anything and run with it.”

Listen to both tracks below for comparison below.

BUSTED!: Ty Dolla $ign Facing 15 Years In Prison After Cocaine Possession Indictment (VIDEO FOOTAGE)

Ty Dolla $ign is facing some serious time in prison.

Ty Dolla $ign may be a big star in the industry but in prison, he’s just another inmate. The singer is facing some serious time after he was indicted for cocaine possession and other charges. Earlier this year, Ty was busted after drug dogs went absolutely wild when sniffing around his vehicle, prompting cops to get the artist in cuffs and arrest him. According to TMZ, Ty has been indicted and is facing up to fifteen years in prison.

The publication notes that he was hit with three formal charges: felony possession of cocaine, felony possession of THC, and misdemeanour possession of under one ounce of marijuana. It’s worth mentioning that the arrest happened in Atlanta, where drug laws are much stricter than in California.

The police initially searched Ty’s limo van, going through bags and other belongings in the vehicle. Skrillex was also searched but Dolla was the only person who got busted. Considering he’s facing over a decade in prison, we’re hoping that Ty can somehow find his way out of this. At the end of the day, he didn’t hurt anybody. Fifteen years sounds excessive in that aspect.

We will continue to keep you updated on the latest news regarding Ty’s legal debacle.

WILD’N OUT?: Nick Cannon Digs Up “Homophobic” Tweets By White Female Comedians in Defense of Kevin Hart

He is pointing out double standards.

Kevin Hart scored a big win when he was offered a hosting gig by the Oscars. This achievement was undercut by the resurfacing of homophobic tweets for which he issued a non-apology and eventually stepped down from his role at the upcoming award ceremony. In light of this chain of events, Nick Cannon felt compelled to remind people of some of their comedy sweethearts’ dalliances with similarly offensive content.

He shared old tweets from Chelsea Handler, Sarah Silverman and Amy Schumer, all of which have experienced major success in their respective careers as comedians and actors. Cannon seemed to question how these figures have continued to sustain positive trajectories in the professional realm by despite their use of homophobic slurs in the tweets he reposted.

Cannon is clear about his stance. He isn’t trying to shame these female comedians for these words as much as he is highlighting the hypocrisy of both the entertainment industry and the public. He does not condone the rise of political correctness. The comedian would not mind people unearthing some of his old tweets either.

“Nope!! You know I’ve been saying fucked up shit since twitter started! I don’t play that politically correct bullshit! Fuck politics!! Only Truth!”

STOOPID?: Tekashi 6ix9ine Refusing To “Snitch” In Plea Deal Offering, According To Lawyer

Tekashi’s lawyer wants everyone to know, his client isn’t a snitch.

TMZ clearly has a direct line toTekashi 6ix9ine’s attorney Lance Lazzaro. The latest news item to sneak out the clubhouse is actually an issuance of strength – or a commitment to their cause. That’s right, Tekashi 6ix9ine, Lance Lazarro, and his legal associate are vowing to never take a plea deal. If you recall, yesterday we learned that Federal Authorities were confident they had the evidence to lock Mr. Hernandez for good. Well, it turns out they sent a duplicate copy of their dossier to Lance Lazarro and his team, in the hopes of getting a plea deal started. But Lazarro wants everyone to know, that Tekashi isn’t about to revert to snitchery.

“A plea deal is simply off the table, even if the feds offer one,” Lazarro told TMZ while sticking to script. By the looks of it, Tekashi 6ix9ine is prepared to go to trial, at all costs. Becoming an informant for short-term gain would come to haunt him in his next incarnation if you will.

As reported previously, the Feds reportedly have images tying Tekashi to a bunch of crimes in the NY-area, but no evidence of him holding a firearm for that matter. Lazarro maintains that his client “was never part of a conspiracy, plain and simple. Nor did he ever participate in any incidents that the government has alleged,” let the record show.

IN CASE YOU MISSED IT: Lil Mama Blasts Bow Wow The “Clown” For Insinuating She’s Down To F*ck (VIDEOS)

“You are far from the type of man that I could ever see myself being with.”

Bow Wow managed to upset one of his lifelong supporters. Lil Mama had invited the rapper to kick it in New York, an invitation Bow Wow portrayed as being motivated by romantic feelings. Lil Mama has addressed his insinuations in clips posted to social media.

“I want to start this off just by saying you played yourself, kid,” Mama said. “Bow Wow, you know, that in all the years that I’ve ever known you, you have never known a n****r to f**k me in a week. So to even give BT advice like ‘Oh y’all gonna be f**king in a week.’ you’re being a clown.”

She claims to have wanted to surround Bow Wow with a positive entourage.

“I was trying to bring you around some real n****s. You want to commit suicide one day. You’re going crazy here. You’re going crazy there. I come from a grounded environment that I was trying to bring you to. We’re doing a TV show. We’re creating content. You are far from the type of man that I could see myself being with, sleeping with or anything of that nature.”

Lil Mama concludes her rant with a warning.

“There are so many things that I could address about this show, but I’m not going to let everything pull my attention. Y’all could believe what y’all want to believe…before we start talking about a female beating my ass or anything like that let’s just be clear: I will smack the sh*t out of you. Period!”

HIPS DON’T LIE?: Shakira Reportedly Facing Criminal Tax Fraud Charges

An extensive investigation into Shakira’s tax-paying history reveals that she may owe over 14.5 million euros to the Spanish government.

A new report by Spanish newspaper El Pais claims that international pop star Shakira is facing criminal charges for alleged tax fraud. Last year, Shakira’s name appeared in the “Paradise Papers”, a legal document detailing the exploits of celebrities and politicians who have avoided paying taxes by orchestrating offshore financial dealings. Earlier this year, the singer purportedly paid 20 million euros to the Spanish government in back taxes. The Colombian artist’s financial and professional activities were again scrutinized in a recent probe launched to determine whether or not she neglected any tax paying duties during her time in the European nation between the years 2011 and 2014.

According to Spanish law, if a person spends a minimum of 183 days in Spain, they are considered a fiscal resident of the country and thus, are required by law to pay taxes on their global income. In the case that Shakira spent less than the aforementioned amount of time in the country, Shakira’s sole fiscal duty would be to pay the taxes on any money she made while working within the country. Shakira, who is in a relationship with Spanish football player Gerard Pique, is believed to have spent more time in Spain than indicated in her tax report. She is accused of filing taxes for the years 2011 to 2014 as if she spent most of her time in the Bahamas rather than living in Barcelona with her partner and their son.

The results of the previously mentioned year-long probe concluded that Shakira owes 14.5 million euros to the Spanish government. In a recently released statement, the musician’s team declared, “Shakira has at all times fulfilled her tax obligations and owes no money to the Spanish Treasury.” It goes on to read, “As soon as she was made aware of the amount that according to the Tax Agency she owed, as a gesture of good faith, she made the payment in full, and, therefore, there are currently no monies owed.”

FACTS OR REACHING?: According To Quality Control’s CEO – “The Grammy’s Robbed Migos”

Pierre “Pee” Thomas vented, for all the public to see.

Every year, we enter the same discussion over who got snubbed by the Grammys, and their crooked membership committee. Even if we disagree in principle, on who was unjustly cut from the list, we all to seem to agree that something “ain’t right.” When it comes to Grammy-bashing, those who speak the loudest are often those with less at stake. One person I suspect, who airs on the side of caution more often than not, is QC’s Pierre “Pee” Thomas. But even he, with all his connections at Universal, felt the need to let off some steam. His take: the Grammys’ snobbery is getting out of hand.

Pierre “Pee” Thomas, one half of the executive order at Quality Control, manages a stable of big-name artists, including Migos, through an arrangement with Universal Music. His IG message in ’19 was rather simple: “Grammys Robbed Migos of a nomination. We Still Hustling Thou.” And thought the basis of Pee’s argument is complicated by inconclusiveness, we can’t help but agree with him, on the grounds that Grammy criteria is pretty esoteric. You could argue, the selection committee is basically guilty of making it up as they go along. Realistically-speaking, do you think Migos deserved a nomination in 2018? Hit us with your thoughts.

IN CASE YOU MISSED IT: Pattie LaBelle Calls Ariana Grande A “White Black Girl” & Of Course Black Twitter Acted a Fool

Patti LaBelle has no filter. The diva is known for her surprising antics onstage and her tendency for being extra at all times. The public loves her for that. Some of her fans were left disappointed by her appearance at Billboard’s Women In Music ceremony, however. When presenting Ariana Grade, the Labelle used an interesting term to describe the pop star.

She started with the type of praise for Grande’s voice, unsurprising compliments.

“I’m thrilled to be among so many wonderful friends to present this year’s ultimate honor to Billboard’s Woman of the Year. A young woman who has it all. She’s soulful, strong, and she’s just sensational. She’s all that and a bag of chips. She’s a giant talent who sings from the heart, as I learned when we sang together at the White House for President Obama and Mrs. Obama. She tore it down. Honestly, she can sing her face off.”

Then things turned awkward.

“She asked me some questions one time. Remember when we did the President’s stuff? And you said, ‘Patti, what should I do?’ I said sing like that little white/Black girl that you are. She got soul like a mug!” she said to Arianna, “My son told me not to say that, but it’s true.”

“Your son was probably right,” Grande replied

Per usual social media had quite a bit to say, mostly over dramatic things, peep some of the Twitter reactions along with a clip of Patti’s comment below:

SOUNDS ABOUT RIGHT: Beyonce & Jay-Z Had One Of 2018’s Highest-Grossing Tour With $250M

The Carters left nothing on the table this year.

As the year-end tallies begin to roll in, it should come as no surprise that Jay-Z and Beyonce are topping lists in a span in which they dropped off a joint album and took their On The Run tour back on the road. This year, The Carters’ On The Run II Tour finished off with $253.5 million as reported by Billboard Boxscore.

They officially wrapped up the full run in October in Seattle in a 48-date stadium trek that included 18 shows in Europe, including a two-night stint at London Stadium worth $11 million with over 125,000 tickets sold. After dropping their Everything Is Love joint album a few dates in, they debuted that “APESHIT” banger in Paris before coming back home for 30 North American shows. Their highest-earning stretch would be from their appearance in Atlanta at the Mercedes Benz Stadium where they racked up $14.1 million.

It marks an increase of 132 percent over the original On The Run Tour, which amassed $109.6 million in 2014. That year OTR was named eighth on the Billboard Top Tours list while this year, OTR II clocks in at No. 3, only competing with Taylor Swift and Ed Sheeran’s respective runs.

Sheeran earns the top spot as he earns nearly half a billion with a staggering figure of $429,491,502 on a tour that he still hasn’t completed for his two-year Divide run, becoming only the sixth tour run to gross more than $300 million in one year. The tour originally kicked off in March 2017 and has a total of 14 legs. After wrapping up his most recent leg in North America last month, he will begin Leg 11 in Latin America in February before finally bringing things to a close in August of next year.

Taylor Swift’s Reputation Tour earns her No. 2 with a note of $315.3 million while the rest of the top 5 tours are rounded out by Bruno Mars at fourth with $237.8 million and P!nk who closes out with $180.4 million.

H.E.R. reeled in a nice set of Grammy nominations this year.

H.E.R. also known as Gabi Wilson got the best surprise of the year when her tour manager called her in for an early morning meeting only to reveal that she’s been nominated for five Grammy awards. “It took me a second to register. And I started crying and everybody was going crazy. We were all screaming and crying. It was a moment to be surrounded by my band and the people I love. To get that news, it was so much at one time,” Gabi told the folks over at Billboard.

The “Focus” singer is up for album of the year, best new artist, best R&B performance, best R&B song and best R&B album, telling the publication how the biggest surprise was for album of the year since her last tapes were just EPs.

“[…] I didn’t even drop an album,” she added. “It’s my project, it’s my two EPs together and it’s not even an album. It was literally a “It’s time for me to drop music. I finally realized who I was. Let me just see what happens” [kind of thing]. Then, two years later, a sold-out tour and five Grammy nominations.”

The 2018 Grammys will take place on February 10th in Los Angeles at the Staples Center.
