JUSSIE SMOLLETT SHOWED STRENGTH IN HIS RETURN


   

    After suffering what he described as a brutal attack last TuesdayEmpire star Jussie Smollett returned to the spotlight on Saturday night for an intimate concert at The Troubadour in L.A. While moving the crowd with his music, the visibly shaken singer-slash-actor also opened up about the incident that led to his hospitalization last week.

 

    Smollett took to the stage alone, wearing pins on his pants that included a rainbow ribbon to support the LGBTQ community, a red stop sign that read "Stop Killing Us," and a raised fist — a symbol synonymous with Black Power.

 

    "I'm OK," Jussie said with tears in his eyes to a roomful of fans who applauded his words while offering support of their own. 

 

    "I'm not fully healed yet but I'm going to. I'm gonna stand strong with y’all. I had to be here tonight. It sounds powerful, but I couldn't let those motherfuckers win. I will always stand for love and I hope that you all stand with me."

 

 


Killer Mike Speaks About His New Religion

 

Killer Mike is ready to shock the masses with his new Netflix series, "Trigger Warning."

Killer Mike was among the guests invited to  The Late Show with Stephen Colbert last night. The first order of business was to address his forthcoming Netflix series, Trigger Warning - where the Run The Jewels' member hopes to settle a few scored with the American public. The economy, gang culture, education and several articles of faith, will all be up for debate when series debuts.. Today!

 

Before settling on platitudes, Killer Mike took a moment to describe his inner-psyche as a model of faith he calls "The Church Of Sleep." His solution to many of the contentious issues tabled in his Trigger Warning series would be easily remedied if only the imaginary sidekick he created named Sleepy came to fruition. Killer Mike tried in jest to explain his figurative agenda.

"Jesus, the character in the Bible, is amazing. He’s a superhero, right? He fights injustice with the church; he rallies against government. … It'd be a great graphic novel. The only problem is that we don’t get our black Spider-Man," Killer Mike told Stephen Colbert while sitting in the hot seat. "For me, I think that, to raise a confident child in terms of divinity and matters of spiritualism, they need to see people who look like them or they need to see a deity who looks like them."

 

Killer Mike's portrayal of ulterior motives rivals only Wakanda. So without further ado, check out his abridged theory in the Colbert video recap (down below). Since the imaginative World of Wakanda works to better define the delegation of power in America, so can Killer Mike's new religion. Jokes aside, Trigger Warning looks like a goodie.


Public Enemy Reunite To Tour With Wu-Tang Clan, DJ Premier & De La Soul

 

The "Gods of Rap" tour will take place over three days in the United Kingdom.

Hopefully, this tour makes its way to the United States because this would be so cool to witness live. It's been a while since Public Enemy has done shows together after Flavor Flav filed a lawsuit against Chuck D but it appears as though the band is getting back together. Despite them only reuniting for three tour dates, the Gods of Rap tour offers a unique opportunity for old school fans in the United Kingdom to check out some of the most legendary acts in hip-hop history.

 

As reported by Hip Hop DX, Public Enemy will be reuniting to tour alongside Wu-Tang ClanDe La Soul and DJ Premier. In what will surely be three insane shows, the historic acts look set to take on London, Manchester, and Glasgow in May. The news was announced by Flav and Chuck D's DJ Lord, who wrote, "'Consider Yourselves Warned'????? ????Hip Hop Gods @wearedelasoul @publicenemyftp @wutangclan & @djpremier hit the UK together for the #GodsOfRap tour this May."

 

Right now, the U.K. dates are the only ones that have been announced. It's unclear if they plan to bring the tour to North America but it would clearly be welcome, if so. Tickets go on sale next week. Are you booking a flight to the U.K?


Future On Ciara & Russell Wilson

 

Future also speaks on why he blasted Wendy Williams.

As we all check out Future's brand new album, the star continues to create headlines through his promotional interviews. When he's not working on new music, we rarely hear the artist speaking about his life in the public. However, his recent media run showed Future reacting to tons of the dramatic situations we've heard about in his life. During an episode of Freebandz Radio on Apple Music, Fewtch was prompted to speak about his ex-girlfriend Ciara and her current partner Russell Wilson. He also touched on all the nonsense that went down with Wendy Williams a few months ago.

 

Future was asked how he feels about Russell Wilson, to which he explained that he feels he's not really being "a man" in his relationship. "He do exactly what she tell him to do," said the musician. "He not being a man in that position. He not tellin' her, 'Chill out with that on the internet. Don't even talk to him. I'm your husband! You better not even bring Future's name up!' If that was me, she couldn't even bring his name up. She know that. She couldn't even bring her exes' names up."

 

The rapper went on to criticize Wendy Williams, arguing that when she made his "baby mama chart," she included women that have tried to distance themselves from being labelled as "just a baby mama." "Man, the Wendy Williams situation," he said. "The only thing I was mad about her, putting my kid's mothers up that don't want to be in the limelight. 

 

They're not entertainers. Only time people know them is from me. If you see them responding, it's because they want to respond. You can put her up. You can put them up. But don't put the ones who ain't responding. It's two girls you're putting on that list that don't even never do social media."


John Legend and Chrissy Teigen Address Kanye West's Twitter Rants

 

John Legend doesn't speak for Kanye West—and he doesn't pretend to, either.

 

But considering their close friendship, a Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen viewer called into the show Thursday night to ask he how he feels about the rapper's polarizing tweets.

 

"Yeah, well, you know...When I see some of it, I just shake my head," John admitted. "A lot of people that love Kanye, that love his music, they're like, 'I don't agree with a lot of the things he says.' And, you know, he loves it. He says what he's gonna say, and it's on him. It's weird, because I get asked about it all the time...I can't be accountable for what he's gonna say. Truly!"

 

Considering how outspoken she is on Twitter, Legend's wife, Chrissy Teigen joked, "The roles are probably reversed in this!" That being said, she also understands the position West's wife, Kim Kardashian, finds herself in whenever he goes on a Twitter spree. "All you want to do is protect the person you love and be able to defend them at all costs. It really is tough, because we all have our separate identities. We believe different things," Teigen said. "As much as you love somebody, they're going to eff up sometimes and they're going to say weird things."

Kardashian herself spoke about West's tweets when she appeared on Monday's after-show.

 

"He goes through phases," she said. "You know, he made a good point the other day. He was like, 'Look, some people express themselves—whether it's about a person, like, in diss records'—and he's like, 'I've never done that. Some people see a therapist. Some people [do] this. To me, Twitter is my therapy, and it's legal. So, I'm not doing anything to hurt anyone. I'm not being irrational and doing something physical because I'm upset or frustrated...' He's like, 'People can end up in jail for the things that I'm thinking, but instead I just tweet it all. It might be 150 tweets, but that's how I get it out, and then I feel better, and then I'm over it for a while.'"

Kevin Hart Won’t Host Academy Awards; Doesn’t Want To Be Oscar Night Distraction

 

The Academy will continue on its course toward an Oscarcast without a single host, and instead will enlist some of the biggest names in the games to present awards. Hart’s appearance on Ellen to promote his upcoming film The Upside rekindled hope when DeGeneres — whom sources said turned down the job awhile ago — urged Hart to host and made calls to the Academy.

 

Hart was moved by DeGeneres’ gesture and indeed reconsidered, and he has apologized so often that the Academy would have been receptive to his return, I’m told. Ultimately, Hart felt his hosting would become a distraction, a continuing controversial narrative that would take the spotlight off the people and movies being honored. He also grew concerned at the limited amount of time he would have had to prepare. Both are legitimate concerns. After the ensuing parade of blowhard polemic articles following Hart’s Ellen appearance, who can blame him?

After Deadline revealed  in early December that the Oscar host would be Hart, the standup comedian turned actor withdrew two days later when decade old offensive homophobic tweets resurfaced. At the time, the Academy sought a public apology, but Hart initially was defiant, saying he had apologized in the past and he was being targeted by online trolls who dredged up the tweets. But Hart didn’t really freshen his apology until after he announced he had withdrawn from the job. That put the Oscars in the unenviable position that it is in now. The Academy still hasn’t announced its plans, deep into Golden Globes weekend, with ABC promos bypassing the hosting situation. But I’m told the Academy has been quietly lining up stars to help out and will continue on that route.

Perhaps Hart could be one of them and maybe he could do something with DeGeneres. The aftermath of the Ellen show brought about an array of trade stories critical of DeGeneres and Hart, the latter of whom is still upset by what he believes are online trolls trying to damage his career. Others claimed that DeGeneres didn’t distinguish herself as a gay woman, and still others called for Hart to go further and become a voice for the LGBTQ movement.

 

It has become a referendum on Hart, who merely wanted to serve as an emcee for an awards show telecast, a job that was already considered a thankless task. His decade old, hurtful tweets aside — Hart has pretty much been a model citizen as a movie star. He has become one of a handful of reliably bankable movie stars, through a combination of talent and a willingness to relentlessly promote his films. His vast social media following has been a tool in his promotional arsenal, but it certainly backfired here.

 

When the Hart controversy first kicked up, Deadline noted how the Academy, before announcing it would give Jerry Lewis its humanitarian Oscar award, asked him to apologize and own up to past homophobic rantings. The Academy didn’t vet his social media beforehand, as it most certainly will in the future.


Nas Releases Powerful “Cops Shot the Kid” Video Featuring a Slick Rick Cameo

 

Frenetic, intense and sobering, the “Cops Shot the Kid” video depicts the realities of police brutality and the way it exerts itself on the black community. The visual begins with Nas walking on a beach at sunset, as clips of police dogs barking, dead men lying in the street and piercing sirens fill the screen. The visual is bathed in sapphire and crimson hues that amplify the disturbing imagery. 

 

Narratively, the music video follows a loose structure that tracks various black men: one running from a mysterious figure down an alley and another getting slammed on the hood of a car at a gas station. Unsurprisingly, neither of them seem to make it, and both are killed by law enforcement.

 

It’s fitting that Slick Rick makes a cameo toward the end of the video. “Cops Shot the Kid” is propelled by a sample of Slick Rick’s 1988’s “Children’s Story” and was one of the few standouts on the critically maligned Nasir. In a November interview with Rolling Stone, Rick revealed that he wasn’t making an intentional statement on police brutality when he created his groundbreaking song.“I wasn’t concentrating on police brutality. That wasn’t the direction I was going in,” he said. “The basis of the story was just to be entertaining, gritty… It’s like we trying to intrigue your peers with a story that should draw them in. It’s almost like how Kevin Hart draws you in with his stories. Kevin Hart stories could be written in rap to you know? It’s not a one-two joke. It’s a longer procedure. It walks you to the joke for like about two to three minutes. Kevin Hart could take a joke and make it stretch into five minutes.”

Rihanna Declined Super Bowl Halftime Show in Support of Colin Kaepernick: Reports

Rihannawas not interested in taking a bow at the 2019 Super Bowl—and Colin Kaepernickreportedly had something to do with it. 

The 30-year-old professional quarterback sparked headlines, controversy and backlash back in 2016 after he opted to kneel during the United States national anthem in peaceful protest of police brutality and racial inequality taking place around the country. The move immediately incited debate, with critics like President Donald Trump calling for anyone who took a knee to be fired.

Kaepernick, currently a free agent, filed a grievance against NFL owners in October 2017, arguing that the NFL and its owners "have colluded to deprive Mr. Kaepernick of employment rights in retaliation for Mr. Kaepernick's leadership and advocacy for equality and social justice and his bringing awareness to peculiar institutions still undermining racial equality in the United States."


CASE BRINGS THE ROMANCE WITH NEW SINGLE “MAKE LOVE” FEAT. TEDDY RILEY & TANK

 

It’s a grown and sexy steppers affair on Case‘s surprise new single “Make Love.” The first release off the crooner’s forthcoming album Therapy, finds him connecting with music icon Teddy Riley and fellow R&B star Tank

 

Written and produced by Riley and J-Sol, the breezy song features the hitmakers in courtship mode, as they profess their desire for a passion filled night with their respective lovers. Case opens the romantic collaboration sharing his admiration for “every inch” of his lady and how he wants her from “head to toe.” 

 

Tank handles the second verse confessing that he’s been fantasizing about his woman all day and he hopes to lay her down. “All day I’ve been waiting, to get with you, next to you,” he sings. “Slide closer to me / You got what I need / Girl, I need to see your body on me.”

 

Teddy Riley joins in on the chorus and bridge, expressing how he wants to “make love all night.”

 

“Make Love” is the first single off Case’s upcoming album Therapy, due out September 21. The LP follows 2017’s Love Jones Vol. 1 EP and 2015’s Heaven’s Door.

H.E.R. will be back on the road with a new headlining tour this fall. Expected to be in support of her much-anticipated debut album, the “I Used To Know HER Tour” will find the songstress traveling across North America from November through December 2018.

With over one billion combined streams to date, the release of the breakthrough H.E.R. Volume 1H.E.R. Volume 2 – The B Sides, and recently released I Used To Know Her: The Prelude, H.E.R. has quickly established herself as one of modern music’s most fascinating new voices. After captivating audiences with her medley performance of “Focus” and “Best Part” with Daniel Caesar on the 2018 BET Awards and commanding the stage on her own sold-out headlining domestic and international tours, in addition to Chris Brown’s “Heartbreak on a Full Moon Tour,” anticipation continues to grow for the release of H.E.R.’s official debut album, signifying that the future is bright for the young R&B star.

 


TINASHE TO JOIN ‘DANCING WITH THE STARS’ CAST

 

Tinashe is bringing her moves to “Dancing With the Stars.”

 

The pop/R&B singer will reportedly join Season 27 of ABC’s dance competition series, according to E! News

Tinashe is not the first pop star to put on her dancing shoes. Past “DWTS” contenders have included Brandy, Mya, Zendaya, Christina Milian, Tamar Braxton, Normani, and Nicole Scherzinger, who won the Mirrorball trophy in 2010.

 

The 25-year-old released her sophomore album Joyride in April. She recently dropped a couple of loose tracks, including “Throw a Fit” and “Like I Used To,” and is reportedly working on a mixtape called ‘Nashe.’

The full cast of “DWTS” was announced on “Good Morning America” on Wednesday (Sept. 12). Season 27 premieres Sept. 24 at 8 p.m. ET.

 

 


Beyonce and Jay-Z Prompt South Carolina Schools to Close Early

Students in six Columbia, South Carolina schools are probably thanking Beyoncé and JAY-Z right now. School officials announced a half-day closing on Aug. 21 due to anticipated high traffic for the On The Run II concert.

 

Officials with the Richland 1 School District say they're worried about school buses being caught in heavy traffic due to the show if the schools are dismissed at their regular time. The OTRII tour  is being held at the University of South Carolina’s 80,000-seat football stadium on Aug. 21. No other schools in Richland 1 district will close for a half-day—they'll dismiss at their regular time.

 

The North American leg of the tour kicked off in Cleveland on July 25 and will wrap on Oct. 4 in Seattle. Already, the tour has been eventful. While they were across the pond touring Europe earlier this summer, they released their acclaimed joint album, Everything Is Love, featuring the lead single, "Ape Shit" which was filmed in the Louvre in Paris.

 

Earlier this week, Bey made headlines again when her gorgeous Vogue cover was revealed, featuring her looking natural and at peace, as she expounded on motherhood, being a black woman and her issues with body image.

 

"There are many shades on every journey," she said in the interview. "Nothing is black or white. I’ve been through hell and back, and I’m grateful for every scar. I have experienced betrayals and heartbreaks in many forms. I have had disappointments in business partnerships as well as personal ones, and they all left me feeling neglected, lost, and vulnerable. Through it all I have learned to laugh and cry and grow. I look at the woman I was in my 20s and I see a young lady growing into confidence but intent on pleasing everyone around her. I now feel so much more beautiful, so much sexier, so much more interesting. And so much more powerful."

R. Kelly Returns To Billboard Charts After

Despite allegations of sexual abuse, R. Kelly's die-hards are standing by his side.

It seems as if we're witnessing the demise in R. Kelly's career, but it looks like it's going to take more than a docuseries to knock him off the charts. According to Billboard, two of the singer's biggest hits to date have made returned to the charts following the airing of Lifetime's docuseries.

 

"Ignition" and "I Believe I Can Fly" are back on Billboard's R&B Digital Song Sales chart after Lifetime's six-part docuseries Surviving R. Kelly aired at the beginning of the month. "Ignition" is currently sitting at #12 on the R&B Digital Song Sales chart with a spike of 191% in week-over-week purchases. According to Nielsen Music, the singer sold 2000 downloads in the week ending on Jan 10th. It's the best the song has performed in nearly 2 years since moving 2000 units in the week ending on Jan. 12, 2017. "Ignition" also brought in 3.1M U.S. on-demand streams in the week ending on Jan. 10th. 

 

"I Believe I Can Fly" debuted at no. 16 on the R&B Digital Song Sales with 2000 copies sold as well which is the highest it's charted since Feb. 25th, 2016. The increase in streams for both songs helped The Essential R. Kelly project re-enter the Top R&B albums chart at no. 19. Additionally, it also debuted on the Billboard 200 at no. 144 and at no. 46 on the Top Catalog Albums.

 

Earlier today, it was revealed that Sony had dropped R. Kelly from their label following the numerous protests and allegations stemming from Surviving R. Kelly.

EMPLOYERS CAN MAKE THE WORKPLACE A HEALTHY PLACE

 

Good Eating, Good Drinking & Exercise - The Answers to Good Life


Healthy eating and proper exercise can enhance workplace performance.  Employers can contribute with the development of thoughtful practices that encourage employees to engage in healthy activities.

 

Employers can establish programs within the work space that would create and improve partnering and group interaction.  There is a special dynamic that develops when employees share diet tips, food dishes, recipes and in general fruits and vegetables that can be distributed throughout the office and can be appreciated within the work environment. Technology has opened the door for creativity and sharing that has never been offered previously.  Hassle-free information is just a click away.

 

Employers can contribute by designated a specific time and day that they will provide health information professionals to be available to their employees in order to keep them apprised of new and cutting edge information about food, exercise and beverages.

The employer can establish a once a week Farmer’s Market on site of the workplace for employees to purchase and consume healthy foods for themselves and their families.

Employers can install an alkaline water machine in their facility to offer water that contains a high ph balance for their workforce. 

 

Employers can create healthy competition within the work space.  By working with the health care providers that provides medical insurance for their employees, the employer can create a program where the staff can monitor their steps, cholesterol, blood pressure, and glucose levels.  All personal medical information will only be handled by health care providers and with the written permission of the employee.


Employers can provide extra time mid-day for workers to participate in walks, cycling, yoga, eliminate stress activities, exercise and other activities that will enhance body movement.
      

 

Employers can provide monetary or gift incentives for the winners of specific competitions.    For the employer, the goal is to improve job performance, longevity and fewer critical illnesses which lead to loss of work hours and stress on others. Some programs are free to California Health Care Providers.
