Bad, Bhad Bhabie

As 2017 is almost over, I look back at this past year and can’t help but wonder… How is Bhad Bhabie famous?

 

The Rap genre’s had some truly untalented people garner attention over the years but, honestly, I can’t think of anybody who’s worse than Bhad Bhabie a.k.a Danielle Bregoli a.k.a Cash Me Ousside girl.

 

She’s a 14-year-old girl who became famous after her appearance on Dr. Phil… Bregoli’s mother was out of answers regarding what to do about her out-of-control daughter, so, naturally, she turned to a television show for help. Society allowed this happen. Danielle grew up seeing people like ‘New York’ from Flava of Love get famous and thought “maybe I could do that.”

 

Then, I found out that Danielle Bregoli signed a record deal… That’s when I lost my faith in humanity. I’m partially outraged but the other part of me feels sorry for this girl. She’s so damn stupid that she thinks her actions are consequence-free and it doesn’t matter how she behaves or what she says. She shouldn’t be allowed to leave the house dressed like that as a 14-year-old.

 

For now, it seems that all we can do is sit back and watch as America does to Bhad Bhabie exactly what it did to Honey BooBoo… I just hope someone teaches Danielle how to spell correctly.

 

Check out a couple of her latest tracks below.

This Friday: Christmas Came Early!

I’ve dubbed November 17th as “Great Friday.” I recommend marking those calendars.

 

(If you didn’t already know) T-pain, Cyhi the Prynce, and Eminem are all releasing albums on that day.  

 

Here is Eminem’s newest single from the upcoming album, Revival:

B.o.B Doesn’t Believe The Slave Trade Happened…

Ever since B.o.B launched his GoFundMe campaign back in September to prove the earth is flat, I’ve been thinking to myself: What crazy thing will he say next?

 

I no longer have to wonder because now he’s claiming there isn’t enough evidence to prove that the slave trade ever existed in the United States.

 

B.o.B recently shared an old-school conspiracy video on Instagram captioned with the following: “They say slavery lasted 400 yrs… America is only 250 yrs old… You ever seen a slave ship ? They can find a billion year old dinosaur bone but can’t find any slave ships.”

Obviously, this sparked many comments, the best of which said, “”they’re are slaves ships at the Smithsonian African American Museum, National Museum of African American History and Culture. New Orleans just got approved for a project called the Slave Ship Museum and there’s also the International Slave Museum in Liverpool, England […] Google’s your friend brah.”

 

I’m not sure if these are just desperate publicity stunts to get attention or if he is actually losing his mind. Maybe he’s always been this strange and his publicist kept it under wraps.

 

I don’t know but one thing is for sure… The earth IS flat.

(Kidding)

Russ’s Interview On Everyday Struggle

Earlier this month, Russ sat down with the hosts of COMPLEX News’s Everyday Struggle for an interview. As usual, the arguments became heated.

 

In my opinion, interviews show peoples’ true colors. Rappers are artists and artists often have eccentric personalities… Vincent van Gogh cut off his ear and Flavor Flav wears a wall clock around his neck. Russ is a talented musician but I’m interested to see how the public reacts to his unorthodox behavior.

 

Like Kanye West, Russ is painfully honest about what goes through his head and has no qualms with voicing his opinions freely. Everyday Struggle co-host, Nadeska, clearly begins to lose her cool during the conversation. Usually, she’s the levelheaded one on the show.

B.o.B Starts a GoFundMe Campaign To Prove His Flat Earth Theory

Regardless of what scientists agree upon, B.o.B needs some proof. This week, he started a GoFundMe page to fund his scientific studies attempting to prove that the earth is actually flat.

 

“I’m starting this GoFundMe because I would like to send one, if not multiple satellites as far into space as I can, or into orbit as I can, to find the curve,” he said. “I’m looking for the curve.”

 

Originally set at $500,000, B.O.B quickly changed the goal to $200,000. As of 11 AM Sunday morning, the page has raised $195.

 

What do you think? Has Bobby Ray gone crazy or is he really onto something?

Another Upcoming Michael Jackson Release?

If you thought you were done hearing posthumous releases from the king of pop, you’d be wrong. September 29th, Scream, will be released to the masses.

 

The Halloween-style 13-song collection of MJ hits will also feature a brand-new five-song mash-up by The White Panda… As a life-long fan of Michael, this upsets me.

 

First of all, it’s a blatant attempt to squeeze every last penny out of the artist’s name. Second of all, the fact that the selling point of the album is a White Panda mash-up is insulting. If Michael Jackson wanted to work with White Panda, he would have. White Panda is unworthy of such an honor, to be frank.

 

It is time to let him rest in peace and stop diluting value of Michael Jackson’s legacy.
