Billionaire rapper, Jay-Z really, really cares about black people. That’s why he and the NFL have partnered up to show that… um… a rich black guy can… be part owner of an NFL team and help with the Super Bowl Half Time Show? I guess this is one of his more “aspirational” contributions? Well, a man at the center of issues within the NFL has weighed in. Colin Kaepernick, the football player whose career was ended when he began protesting police brutality against black people by kneeling during the national anthem, has made comments on this whole thing and he’s thrown a little side-eye
Hip-Hop’s first billionaire Jay-Z recently inking a deal with the NFL to run the Super Bowl Half Time Show and help them look like they care about social justice included him taking “significant ownership interest” in one of the teams, according to TMZ.

Dax Shepard and Kristen Bell are known for several things. They’re a couple, they’re a couple of actors, and they are very good at annoying the hell out of people. Usually it happens whenever Dax or Kristen decides to tell a TMI story about their personal life. But did you know Dax can also annoy people all on his own, with no help from Kristen?

The Daily Mail reports that highly-skilled detectives of The Beyhive believe that because of the color purple and some well-positioned arms, a fourth chosen one has been sent down from the cosmos and placed into the womb of their God Beyoncé.

In totally surprising news, multiple acts have pulled out of Woodstock 50. The music festival meant to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the original Woodstock, was hurtling towards disaster for quite some time before all the drama finally seemed to settle a mere weeks before it’s supposed to happen. Now that Woodstock 50 has decidedly become a free-ish concert in Maryland it’s time to see who the acts will be for the show since they have about 14 days to prepare now? Or 16 days, I guess, if you want to leave things to the very very very last minute. As expected, many of the headlining acts are dropping out of this concert faster than the Fyre Festival hemorrhaged money–and a whole bunch more are now reportedly out including Miley Cyrus and The Raconteurs.
Woodstock 50 has been a mess, but after what feels like an eternity of trouble and setbacks and what seemed like a beeline towards Fyre Festival Failure, it may being things around. Sort of. Not really. It’s being reported that the music festival has finally secured a permit to actually happen, but the thing is, by this point some of the artists who were scheduled to perform have probably found other things to do. One person who most likely will not be in attendance is Jay-Z.
