Tracy Chapman lives a general very quiet existence, but in 2018, she got several headlines and months’ worth of front-page attention when she decided to sue Nicki Minaj for sampling her song, “Baby Can I Hold You” without permission. Well, that messiness is now behind both of them (watch out back there). Nicki has finally agreed to pay Tracy some money for the use of the sample.
Nicki Minaj and Cardi B are mad! But not at each other. Amen! Both wound up venting frustrations thanks to the recently released 2021 Grammy Nominations. Nicki let everyone know that the Grammys aren’t shit, haven’t been shit, and are never going to be shit, and Nicki knew that when she lost the Best New Artist award to Bon Iver. And then for some reason, Wiz Khalifa chose to rile up Cardi B and tried to get her and Nicki Minaj back beefing like the old days. But Cardi B didn’t take the bait! Unlike when she was waiting for election results, Cardi provided a stress-free dismissal of Wiz.
Nannies. If I had cash and a baby to burn (WAIT, strike that, reverse it), you bet your ass I’d be hiring one. And most celebrities would do the same. Hell, Beyoncé had six nannies for Blue Ivy. This is why it’s surprising that Nicki Minaj is doing the whole “first-time mom” thing sans hired help. Nicki gave birth to an as-yet-unnamed son with Kenneth “Zoo” Petty at the end of September, and this past weekend she tweeted that she’s still mulling over the “difficult decision” to get a nanny.
Ah, the Monday after Halloween. Every year it’s the same. The fun’s been had and all we have left are the memories of slutty vampires (like Demi Lovato, seen above) and, as is the case this year, even sluttier Tiger Kings, to break up the monotony of a long, dark fall. This year especially, there is literally nothing going on between now and Thanksgiving to distract us. NOT ONE THING! So let’s relive the excitement of the weekend before the mundanity of tomorrow saps us of every chilling thrill and thrilling chill the season has to offer. Because, like I said, it’s gonna be nothing but luke-warm Pumpkin Spice lattes for excitement for the foreseeable future. So here’s a roundup of what some of the notable Halloween costumes of 2020. Let’s look over there, shall we?
There was a time that if you wanted to hear Cardi B and Nicki Minaj’s voices in the same space, you had to watch any of the numerous cellphone videos that were taken during their New York Fashion Week show-throwing party fight from two years ago. But those days may be long gone, because the internet seems to think a song recorded by alleged enemies Cardi B and Nicki Minaj is about to drop. At long last, the feud that may or may not have been cooked up for publicity is possibly over!
It looks like Cardi B’s longtime nemesis is also getting news for her WAP. But in this case, we’re talking about the gushing of fluids that happen when your water breaks. Because Nicki Minaj has given birth.
