Finally, some good news for Nicki Minaj! She’s cleared her “conscious” and made good on her promise to pay Rashad Show (this is what I call it now, deal) alum Geoffrey Owens the money she promised him when he was spotted working at a New Jersey Trader Joe’s earlier this month. Nicki found somebody who knew how to Google and sent him a check for $25,000. As predicted, Geoffrey didn’t want her charity, so he’s already gone ahead and donated that money to a charity that’s near and dear to his heart.
Drake has inadvertently instigated a feud between Kim Kardashian West and the rapper Rhymefest over a charity Kanye West and Rhymefest founded called Donda’s House. Well, it’s called Donda’s house right now, but they are about to change their name in order to distance themselves from the house of Kardashian-West. Kardashian-West, you say? Well there goes the neighborhood.
There hasn’t been a Canadian granted Sainthood since St. François de Laval (B.1623, D. 1708), but Drake is poised to knock St. Frank off his high horse and get. that. title, boi! According to E! News, St. Drake spent some time in Miami this week doing good works in the name of the lord. Was he clipping toenails at the leper colony or giving crippled orphans a reverse wheelchair Jimmy with the laying on of hands? Not exactly. Drake was generating footage for his newest music video God’s Plan.
William Bradley Pitt is on the prowl and at a charity auction on Saturday, he tried to bid his way to a date with the mother of dragons herself, Emilia Clarke. I guess the Golden Globes wasn’t the only hot ticket in town this weekend! So how much does it cost to make time with the worst wig in Westeros? More than Brad’s final bid of $120,000!
The last we heard from Jamie Foxx, he was pissing people off with a lame fake sign language gag and avoiding the wrath of Xenu by denying a relationship with Katie Holmes. But in the wake of Hurricane Harvey, we can put all that foolishness aside. Jamie, a Texas native, is going to be hosting a telethon to raise money for hurricane relief.
It feels like the news has shown me that video of a hero rescuing a woman and her pooch from a Miata being swallowed by the floodwaters in Baton Rouge at least 4,500 hundred times, but beyond that, I haven’t seen that much coverage. (“Bitch, that’s because you get all your news from PornHub.” – you “Too-shay” – me) It’s like the news has been all about the Olympics and what flaming smegma gob came out of Donald Trump’s yell hole today. They haven’t really put tons of focus on the flooding in Louisiana that has killed 11 people and left thousands homeless. Taylor Swift decided to raise awareness about the flooding and also tell us that she donated $1 million to help the victims, so she gave a statement to the Associated Press:
“We began The 1989 World Tour in Louisiana, and the wonderful fans there made us feel completely at home. The fact that so many people in Louisiana have been forced out of their own homes this week is heartbreaking. I encourage those who can to help out and send your love and prayers their way during this devastating time.”
Tay Tay also donated $500,000 for Nashville flood relief in 2010, and she gave $100,000 to help out the flood victims of Cedar Rapids, Iowa in 2008. Dosomething.org also named her the most charitable celebrity soul in DA WORLD for four years straight. Some of us cynical whores are probably thinking to ourselves, “Tax write-off and damage control payment, I see!,” but a million dollars can help a lot and her statement could push others to help. (Speaking of, Nola.com put together a list of ways to help.) Meanwhile, one of Tay Tay’s arch rivals Kim Kardashian just ordered a pair of matching his-and-hers $3 million canary diamond anus cuffs for herself and Kanye.
