Tyrese Says Mainstream Radio Won’t Play His Music Because He’s Not Sam Smith

Originally posted on HelloBeautiful:

File Tyrese Gibson under yet another artist who has a bone to pick with the entertainment industry. The singer/songwriter has been pushing his newest album, Black Rose, really hard, but he has run into some frustration. “Shame,” the lead single from the album, which features Jennifer Hudson, has held the number one spot on Billboard charts for several weeks, but apparently the song has only been getting play on urban radio stations, and Tyrese wants more mainstream (read White) love.

“I don’t create limits for myself so I don’t appreciate mainstream not playing my song,” stated Gibson.

He added that Sam Smith, Robin Thicke, and Justin Timberlake all sing R&B/Soul music just like he does yet they get play on both urban and mainstream stations.

“We don’t say, ‘Because they’re White, they should be played only on the White stations.’ If I’m number one, my song deserves to be…

Donald Trump & His PR Clearly Don’t Understand The Meaning Of Rape

Originally posted on 97.9 The Beat:

Donald Trump Presidential AnnouncementDonald Trump?s accession to the GOP presidential candidacy throne has been swift, but not without Trump-isms that read as glaring red flags not only in his presidential candidacy, but in his general life view.

Take, for instance, Trump?s inflammatory comment regarding how he envisions Mexican border control should be improved, labeling Mexicans as rapists and criminals. His reasoning?

“I mean somebody’s doing it!… Who’s doing the raping?”

Donald Trump and his PR team have a narrow definition of rape, though—one that excludes Trump, doesn?t fully encompass the meaning of the term, and trivializes victims.

The Daily Beastpublished an article last night critiquing Trump?s assertion regarding people of Mexican descent in light of the, until now, brushed-over skeleton in his own closet. The publication was careful in choosing its headline: ?Ex-Wife: Donald Trump Made Me Feel ‘Violated’ During Sex.?

By chance, I clicked, and the can of worms that…

Gwyneth Paltrow came through in the clutch with some overpriced purses that nobody actually needs because she’s totally down for appropriating hip-hop culture, you guys!
Paltrow collaborated with Edie Parker on two clutch designs: One reads HOV on one side and SHADY on the other, while a different version follows suit, reading BIGGIE and PAC on either side. A clutch will cost you $1,695 a pop.

Gwyneth, nooooo. Why did you do this?

Of course we’ve heard before that Gwyn and Jay and Bey are, like, totally chill, but we have to wonder if the real Slim Shady would be down with his own moniker emblazoned on a really expensive clutch?

Bobbi Kristina And Nick Gordon’s Home Filthy And Uninhabitable

After Bobbi Kristina’s untimely passing, stories are trickling in about the life she and boyfriend Nick Gordon lived in the weeks leading up to the drowning incident that ultimately led up to her death. Now, an anonumous source is revealing that the Atlanta townhouse the two shared was a filthy “drug den” that is now unlivable without extensive cleaning and repair.

Via RadarOnline:

The Atlanta-area home Bobbi Kristina Brown shared with Nick Gordon is such a pigsty that it will need extensive work just to get it into good enough condition to sell.

“It was pretty bad in there,” a source who was in the home shortly before Brown’s tragic accident tells RadarOnline.com. “It’s destroyed — no one gave it love.”

According to the source, the condo was practically uninhabitable. “Dog feces and stains were everywhere and the hardwood…
