Chris Rock Has Some Words For Janet Jackson…And It Ain’t No Joke!

97.9 The Box

LateNightHype

Chris Rock is one of the greatest comedians of our time. Rock is definitely in my TOP 5 (shameless plug for his movie that just dropped this weekend). As comedy SHOULD go…he goes against the grain…he speaks his truth…and he’s able to relate to audiences of multiple demographics. BUT there’s one entertainer that has a little beef with him: Janet (Ms. Jackson if you’re nasty). Find out what their feud is about HERE:

What I Have To Say About Supermodel BEVERLY JOHNSON, BILL COSBY & The Countless Women Who Raked Him

OTHERSIDEOFTHEFAME.COM

Bill_BeverlyThey say the pen is mightier than the sword and in this day and age-that old adage is even more true, real, (and surreal) for many.

Take model Beverly Johnson for instance, who had a story to tell that pretty much fell in line with countless other women recently (and as far back as early 2000s) coming out the woodworks with stories and accounts of being drugged and/or raped by non-other than the revered, respected, and beloved television father that Americans (black and white) had grown to love—like a father, a confidant, a teach, a preacher, a scholar—all things held in high regard and esteem.

You see back then (thirty years ago-like the Barbara Bowman’s/ “Why Did It Take 30 Years for Anyone To Believe Me”), trying to sword-fight a man like Bill Cosby would have cut no one off at the head but themselves.

Spelman College Still Supports Bill Cosby?

Atlanta Daily World

bill cosbys spelman

One entertainment publication went on record to say Spelman College still supports comedic legend Bill Cosby, while another more respected news outlet stated that the Atlanta-based all-female college is unsure if the support and partnership with Cosby will continue.

Entertainment blog, TMZ, said the historically black college in Atlanta that Bill Cosby gave $20 million may have is still standing behind the creator of “The Cosby Show.”

However, the The Washington Post reported that “the president’s office would not say whether the endowed professorship named for Cosby and his wife would continue..”

The quote from Aku Kadogo, the Cosby Endowed Professor in the Arts at Spelman, was ambiguous at best:

“I’m not worried about being the Cosby chair. It’s not a worry to me. It’s a difficult time for him. But it ain’t the end of the world. If Hillary can run for president — she went…

Tracy Morgan fighting ‘to return to the person he was’ after crash

WTVR.com

(CNN) — Five months after being injured in a deadly limo bus crash, Tracy Morgan is fighting to return to the person he once was, his lawyer said Tuesday.

And it seems the “30 Rock” star’s injuries weren’t just the broken ribs, broken nose and broken leg that were previously reported. According to attorney Benedict Morelli, the 46-year-old comedic actor also suffered a “severe brain injury.”

“Mr. Morgan is a fighter,” Morelli said, according to NJ.com. “He’s fighting to get better. And if there’s a chance for him to be back to the Tracy Morgan he once was, he’s going to try to do that. But we just don’t know because of the severity of the injuries that he sustained and the fact that he had such a severe brain injury.”

On June 7, Morgan was a passenger on a limo bus that was rear-ended by a Walmart truck on…

Dave Chappelle Reveals He Bought Drugs from Idris Elba

Black America Web

Dave Chappelle made quite the grand return to comedy and entertainment this year — garnering him a spot as one of GQ‘s “Men of the Year.”

In an interview with the magazine, Chappelle revealed some interesting news about his used-to-be drug man. None other than Idris Elba who used to sell him reefer.

“Oh, okay. So he used to work at Carolines. During that era of my life, there’s a high possibility that I bought reefer from Idris,” he said.

He added, “fast-forward to when I was doing Chappelle’s Show, Idris would come by set sometimes … There’s a lot of women who used to work on the show … all very professional, with the single exception when Idris would come around … [They] would just lose their goddamn minds.”

The beloved, handsome actor and the highly missed funny-man had such a “special connection” to one another back in the…
