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…

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…

Mom Who Drowned Her Sons She’s Not A Monster

Infamous baby killer Susan Smith who notoriously murdered her two sons and later blamed a Black man is now saying she’s not a monster. Ho sit down!

Via AJC:

It was a case that at first captured the sympathies of a nation. A single mother of two adorable boys relayed a terrifying story of a carjacking, an abduction, an unknown assailant, and later, the drowning of her children.

But sympathy turned to horror and outrage when it was discovered that the children of Susan Smith were not killed by a stranger but by the 23-year-old mother herself.

Now, 20 years after being sent to prison for the murder of her boys, Smith has penned a letter from jail to reporters at The State who were writing a retrospective of her case. In the 341-word letter, she mentioned her boys, Michael…

NO FELONY CHARGES FOR DIDDY IN THE UCLA FOOTBALL ALTERCATION

Diddy dodged the bullet in his recent assault arrest, after the Los Angeles D.A. rejected the case, reports TMZ.

The hip-hop mogul was arrested in late June and charged with felony assault, after an altercation with a UCLA football coach.

Reports said Diddy confronted an assistant coach at UCLA, when he was screaming at his son Justin on the field. Things became physical… and he was later arrested.

However, the D.A. has dismissed the case, and Diddy will no longer face the felony charge.

Now the City Attorney must decide if it warrants prosecution for a lesser offense, like misdemeanor assault.

Stay tuned…
