Kanye West Said Even More Insane Shit During His Tucker Carlson Interview, And His Episode Of “The Shop” Won’t Air Due To Hate Speech
Last week, Kanye West did an interview with Tucker Carlson on Fox News where he doubled down on the White Lives Matter messiness and randomly criticized Lizzo’s body. Yesterday, Motherboard obtained unaired footage of the interview. Yep, some of what Yeezy said was too much for Fox News. Too much for Fox News. Let that sink in. In the newly released clips, 45-year-old Kanye continues his recent trend of making bigoted statements about Jewish people and claims “fake children” were planted in his house to manipulate his own children. Hoo boy. In other “Kanye did an interview and it was the opposite of sane” news, the HBO talk show, The Shop: Uninterrupted, will not air the episode they recently shot with Kanye. The reason will shock you. Actually, no it won’t. It was cuz he used hate speech.
The 2022 NBA All-Star Game between Team LeBron and Team Durant happened last night at Cleveland’s Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse. And Macy Gray is the artiste who sang the National Anthem, The Star-Spangled Banner, and her rendition gave people shades of Fergie. Those people have probably never heard Macy Gray perform anything before because Macy Gray’s Star-Spangled Banner was all Macy Gray. But she trended last night thanks to LeBron James trying to keep it together as Macy Gray Macy Gray’d up America’s National Anthem.
Adele and Drake may have been friends before, but that’s probably because he’s never had reason to be jealous of her — Until now. According to TMZ, Adele was seen at game 5 of the NBA playoffs in Phoenix, Arizona and she was “getting cozy” with Rich Paul, LeBron James’ agent. Drake had to go a much more circuitous route to get close to LeBron by dating LeBron’s son’s teammate’s mom while Adele is just yukking it up with Rich, a “major NBA power broker.” Drake is probably holed up in the studio right now recording an Adele diss track as we speak.
We all know Drake loves a honey with a big juicy ass, but no ass in the history of asses needs its own baseball stadium. But since Drake is always doing the absolute most, he recently rented out the entirety of Dodgers Stadium for a dinner date with Instagram model Johanna Leia. And the only thing Drake loves more than a juicy ass is basketball, and with Joanna, he’s scored a 3-pointer. Joanna appeared on the Lifetime reality show Bringing Up Ballers and is the mother of Sierra Canyon High School star basketball player Amari Bailey, who is teammates with LaBron James’ son Bronny James. Leave it to Drake to turn a date with a 40-year-old into an opportunity to holler at a teen.
Apparently Lola Bunny wasn’t the only Looney Tunes character who got a major visual makeover for the upcoming Space Jam sequel, Space Jam: A New Legacy. But at least Lola is still on the team! Pepe Le Pew’s makeover was a head-to-toe situation in that he was removed completely from the film. I’m sure you won’t ever be able to begin to guess why a character whose entire personality trait is that he’s a horny boundary-pushing skunk was axed from an updated Looney Tunes lineup.
The Milwaukee Bucks were supposed to play the Orlando Magic in the NBA playoffs last night, but the game did not go on, because the Bucks decided to strike against systematic racism and police brutality, like the police killing of Breonna Taylor and the shooting of Jacob Blake, a Black man who has been left partially paralyzed after Officer Rusten Sheskey shot him seven times as he walked to his car in Kenosha, Wisconsin. The NBA was in a quarantine bubble because of the pandemic, but it was systemic racism that popped that shit open and players had it. After the Bucks’ announcement, the NBA announced that all three playoff games would not go down last night and would be postponed. That led to the WNBA, a handful of Major League Baseball teams, some Major League Soccer teams, and tennis star Naomi Osaka all using their voices and fame to bring attention to police brutality. Kenny Smith of TNT’s Inside The NBA also walked out in solidarity. Meanwhile, side-eyes were thrown at the NHL for going on with their games. But they did put up an “End Racism” graphic on a screen during a game in Toronto and the announcer called for their community to stand up for social justice.
