Earlier this month, we learned that the Disney corporation was about to make Beyoncé the highest-paid star next to Daisy Duck (don’t tell me they don’t pay top dollar for her avian beauty). Beyoncé was reportedly looking at a $100 million contract with Disney to be a major brand partner, and it was rumored that her first project might have something to do with the Black Panther sequel, which might possibly be followed by two film projects. It was all very mysterious! Well, we’ve now learned that her first project will be another visual album, a la 2013’s Beyoncé and 2016’s Lemonade, called Black is King, coming to Disney+ next month.
You can always count on any BET red carpet to provide some high fashion “moments”, and last night’s BET Awards was no exception. The MET Gala would have been smart to reference “BET red carpet” when trying to get clueless celebrities to grasp the concept of camp. RuPaul’s zebra suit would have looked right at home given the profusion of sequins, pastels, neon, and sculptural pieces that walked the BET carpet. For example, take aspiring rapper/entrepreneur/wig maker to the stars Cliff Vmir (above). His title alone is plenty camp, but throw in a chartreuse vinyl jumpsuit and top it off with a day-glo Victorian fringed lampshade, you’ve got a weenie roast with s’mores for dessert.
Nicki Minaj is pissed. At several people. After the Grammy, EVERYONE (aka just us bloggers in need of stuff to post) wondered what Nicki’s reaction would be to Cardi B becoming the first solo woman to win the Best Rap Album award. We now know her response, and it’s not a positive one, but not necessarily because of Cardi B herself.
The Knowles-Carter twins reportedly had to stay in the hospital after they were born, because they were apparently premature and had “minor issues” that needed looking into. Things must be okay now, because multiple sources have confirmed to E! News that about two weeks after coming into this world, Beyonce and Jay Z’s twins are out of the hospital and resting at the $400,000 a month Malibu mansion that their parents have rented for the summer.
An awards show really isn’t an awards show until some kind of drama breaks out at the afterparty, and this honor goes to Migos and Chris Brown. I wonder if the court still thinks that Chris Brown doesn’t need violence prevention classes? Just wondering out loud here.
Y’all, I’ll be so happy when The BET Awards have finally aired and fucked off for another year, because they’ve been causing problems all damn weekend. First, on Friday, a fight broke out between two of Nicki Minaj’s former cutty buddies. And now the prototype for Nicki’s entire career, feline impersonator Lil’ Kim, wants us all to remember that she, too, can act a fool at times.
