The Astroworld tragedy continues to bring more awful and horrifically sad news. 9-year-old Ezra Blount has died from his injuries. The child had been in hospital ever since the November 6th show and was put in a medically-induced coma. And artist SZA, who performed at Astroworld before the stampede, has performed again since the incident and she stopped her show to make sure someone who passed out was okay. Imagine that? Stopping a show when someone goes unconscious? A bold idea. Take note, Travis Scott.
The 2021 Billboard Music Awards were last night and since things are “getting back to normal” (whatever that means), it was a maskless affair. But honestly, I wish Machine Gun Kelly was forced to wear a mask because then we wouldn’t see his black-stained tongue, which made him look like he tossed the salad of The Tar Monster from Scooby-Doo.
Last year, there were rumors that Drake, Toronto’s second-most beloved resident (RIP to that little white squirrel), was getting with Kylie Jenner. That rumor was quickly shot down, thanks to the assurance that Kylie would never date a “womanizer” like Drake. The use of the word “womanizer” probably made at least one person raise an eyebrow, considering that Drake has been known to be very social with the people who have not yet reached the legal definition of adulthood.
Recently, Drake had those same people feeling weird again, thanks to a song in which it sounds like the 33-year-old Drake was bragging about dating 29-year-old singer SZA back in 2008, when she would have been (big eesh) seventeen years old. SZA knows it sounds plenty creepy, and she wanted to clear the situation up. According to SZA, Drake got the timeline wrong.
Justin Timberlake Got Dragged On Twitter For Repeatedly Calling Sza “Sis” And Really Just Doing Way Too Much
We knew his Man of the Woods shtick wouldn’t last. Justin Timberlake has left the flannel behind and is black to his old ways (not a typo), leaning heavily into his “urban” persona. On a recent appearance on The Ellen Degeneres Show, Justin sat down with Ellen DeGeneres, Sza and Anderson .Paak (also not a typo, I swear) to talk about some Trolls shit, and proceeded to blow the afro wig right off the head of Al Jolson’s ghost. But as we know, minstralsy isn’t Justin’s only special talent. He also managed to sideline a Black woman in the process by completely over-talking Sza when Ellen asked her about her recent Rolling Stone cover. According to Cosmopolitan, Black twitter has had enough. Justin’s going to have to eat all that potato salad he bought from Whole Foods himself because apparently, he’s not invited to the cookout this year.
NBC News reports that R&B singer SZA is about to piss off a ton of makeup vloggers when they can’t get the right shade of concealer they need to complete their makeup tutorial from their local Sephora on June 5th because it’s closed. After making a complaint about getting profiled at a Sephora store, the company has decided to close hundreds of US stores to do “inclusion workshops”. Don’t you love how we have to constantly reiterate to each other how to not treat each other like crap?
