50 Cent isn’t just a rapper and a professional hater, he’s also made himself a nice little career as a TV producer and actor. For six seasons, 50 Cent appeared on Starz’s Power as an actor (playing revenge-hungry Kanan Stark), and he’s also the executive producer of the series, as well as the Power spin-offs, Power Book II: Ghost, Power Book III: Raising Kanan, and Power Book IV: Force. So 50 Cent seems to have a pretty sweet setup over at Starz. Except, he’s not happy, and he recently made it known that he wants out of the Starz family asap.
The NFL Warned Eminem And Dr. Dre Not To Get Political During The Super Bowl Halftime Show, Which They Did Anyway
The Super Bowl LVI Halftime Show (brought to you by Pepsi) happened last night, as expected, and it went off without a hitch. Dr. Dre was joined by Snoop Dogg, Mary J. Blige, Eminem, Kendrick Lamar, 50 Cent, and Anderson .Paak. No Left Shark here. Except, if you’re the NFL, then you might think that was the biggest PR disaster of a Super Bowl Halftime Show this side of Justin Timberlake’s hand exposing a titty. According to sources, the NFL really didn’t want Dr. Dre to sing one very specific anti-police lyric in “Still D.R.E.“, and they really really didn’t want Eminem to take a knee, a la Colin Kaepernick. That screen shot above might have been the exact moment all those NFL politically-averse control freaks dropped their Pepsis in shock. Because as you can see, Eminem took that knee, and Dr. Dre closed the show with “Still D.R.E.“, with that anti-cop lyric right where it usually is.
There’s a Euphoria feud currently happening between Zendaya, Euphoria executive producer and star, and the anti-drug education program, Drug Abuse Resistance Education, better known as D.A.R.E.. It all has to do with D.A.R.E.’s perception of the show, which is that it’s going to encourage teens to run head-first into a sexy, cool, alluring world of chronic drug use and spiraling addiction. Zendaya has something to say about that, and she would like everyone to know that getting kids hooked for life on the bad stuff isn’t Euphoria’s mission statement.
Kanye West Is Still Fighting With Kim Kardashian Over Their Daughter North’s TikTok Account (UPDATE)
Kanye West and Kim Kardashian’s divorce has naturally evolved into a messy divorce, with Kanye being especially vocal when it comes to Kim’s parenting. The specific bee in Kanye’s bonnet at the moment is Kim’s choice to allow their 8-year-old daughter North West to have a TikTok account. Kanye is firmly on Team Get My Child Of TikTok, while Kim is on the other side telling Kanye to please give it a rest and stop publicly attacking her as a mother.
Snoop Dogg recently learned that it doesn’t matter how rich and famous you are, there’s always going to be someone who doesn’t want to deliver food to your house. That’s right, Uber Eats allegedly flaked on Snoop Dogg and just straight-up didn’t deliver the food he ordered. Stars, they’re just like us! Except not really, because when Snoop Dogg complains that his food didn’t show up, he’s sharing that news with 67.4 million Instagram followers. Which then gets reported on by several media outlets. And inevitably turns into a whole thing where the official Grubhub Twitter account joins in and tweets: “We’re always down to drop it like it’s hot! Order through us next time.”
Joe Rogan, a polarizing character. Some, like Aaron Rodgers or your cousin Kyle who failed high school science, believe he’s a beacon of smart ideas. Others look at Joe Rogan and wonder how the host of Fear Factor was able to garner so much credibility. Neil Young, well – it’s pretty clear where he stands on Joe Rogan (and don’t say “At least four inches taller?“, we’re not here to make those kinds of jokes). On Monday, Neil Young, who believes in COVID-19 vaccines, posted an open letter to his personal website declaring his intention to pull all his music if Spotify didn’t finally do something about the unsubstantiated COVID claims Joe Rogan makes on their platform. Spotify took Neil up on his offer and removed most of his songs.
