Melissa McCarthy Riding A Spicer Podium In The NYC Streets Is the Most Clutch Thing Ever!

You know Melissa McCarthy from being one of the funniest comedian and actors on our TV screens to date. Now, transitioning over to SNL as a reoccurring guest, Melissa now holds down the fork as she parodies our beloved (*insert air quotations*) White House Press Secretary, Sean Spicer.

With Spicer being the Spiciest of them all, McCarthy draws our attention center-screen as we laugh hysterically while she mocks the one and only man of the world that is full of losing excuses.

But today tops it all! Below, you will find comic maven riding through the streets of NYC on a motorized podium — the very same prop that she uses in her skits.

There have been no remarks from Sean Spicer but we’re sure he will have plenty to say along with his set of props for every explanation.

We can’t wait until this airs on Saturday!

Stay tuned!

New Music: Kendrick Lamar, Ace Hood, Raekwon & Ghostface Killah

Kendrick Lamar shut the innanets completely down on last night as he debuted his new track “The Heart Part 4” all while trolling fans on Instagram earlier during the day with the artwork seen above teasing a new album.

On the song, Lamar comes back more explosive than ever and shots are being fired. But the question that seems to be dwindling at this point and time is, “who is he referring to? Drake, Big Sean, or both of them at the same time? And is he going after Jay Z as well??” KDot also took a stab at Trump paired with his connection to Russia.

About the “unknown rapper” that he speaks of, he says:

My fans can’t wait for me to son ya punk ass and crush your whole lil shit
I’ll Big Pun ya punk ass, you a scared little bitch
Tiptoein’ around my name, nigga ya lame
And when I get at you homie don’t you just tell me you was just playin’

“Y’all got till April the 7th to get ya’ll sh*t together”, the rapper says as he hints that his new album will be possibly dropping on that day.

Check out the official song HERE.

Migos stops by Sway In The Morning on the brink of their new album release Culture. The trio speaks with Sway Calloway as the industry vet gave them props for leading the new rap culture, and sticking together for so many years.

Since their mentioned by Atlanta‘s Donald Glover aka Childish Gambino at the 2017 Golden Globes during his win, Migos’ “Bad And Boujee” charted at #1 on Billboard Hot 100 spot with a 240% spike in sales, literally within 24-48 hours.

Check it out above.

To add, a petition has been raised for Migos to replace Lady Gaga at the 2017 Super Bowl Halftime show.

In addition to the replacement, the request also states that the Preshow should include Rae Sremmurd, Gucci, Goodie Mob, Ludacris and Young Jeezy, Young Thug needs to sing “Guwop Home”, the official anthem of Atlanta, Andre 3000 should sing the national anthem with Erykah Badu. By sing, they mean hit Donald Trump with a FIRE 64 bars. Lastly, the halftime should be Migos killing “Bad and Boujee,” Future with “March Madness”, then Outkast comes out and does an AQUEMINI sampler and then they end it with Bun B and Jay Z doing “Big Pimpin.”

Fix It Jesus: Chrisette Michele Responds To Donald Trump Inauguration Backlash But No One Is Here For It

It seems that Chrisette Michele has made the final decision to hit the stage of Donald Trump‘s Inauguration set to take place in Washington D.C. Receiving much backlash once her name was announced that she would be a part of the official performance lineup, social media caught wind of the news they were not too happy.

Today, the singer finally releases a statement somewhat explaining why she made such call that could possibly ruin her entire career. Trying to read her exact words is quite confusing to some, and just pure bull to others.

unnamed-9

Branded with the hashtag #NoPoliticalGenius with a social media photo that says “We can’t be present if we’re silent,” it reads:

“My heart is broken for our country, for the hopes of our children, for the fights of those who came before us.
I cry at the thought that Black History, American History might be in vain.
This country has had great moments. God has shined His light upon us.
Today, I hope that Great Moments begin in peaceful & progressive conversation. I am willing to be a bridge. I don’t mind “These Stones”, if they allow me to be a voice for the voiceless.
I am here.
Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. once said, “Our lives begin to end, the day we become silent about what matters,”.
I am here, representing you, because this is what matters.”

– Chrisette Michele

Women’s March Performance Lineup: Janelle Monáe, Maxwell, Angelique Kidjo and more

Today, the Women’s March on Washington announced that music icons Janelle Monáe, Maxwell, and Angelique Kidjo will be performing at the Women’s March on Washington, which will take place in Washington, D.C. on January 21, 2017. Additional performers include Toshi Reagon, Samantha Ronson, Emily Wells, DJ Rekha, MC Lyte, St. Beauty, Beverly Bond, Alia Sharief, DJ Rimarkable, Amber Coffman, the Indigo Girls, Mary Chapin Carpenter, and Climbing PoeTree.

In addition to the performers, top artists Questlove, Grimes, Matt and Kim, KT Tunstall, Neko Case, Rakim, TV on the Radio, and Lila Downs will join the March’s Artist Table, a diverse group artists, musicians, actors, writers, and creatives who are supporting the Women’s March on Washington and sister Marches around the country, joining in solidarity either in person, or via social media. Chaired by America Ferrera, the Artist Table includes over 150 artists; to view the full list, click here.

“I am honored to join this critical movement to bring justice and equality to all,” said Janelle Monáe. “Music has always been a powerful tool for galvanizing unity and I believe that singing and standing together, our voices will be stronger than any force that tries to repress us.”

“We are here because women are every bit as capable if not more able to pursue any goal they set forth for themselves. Were it not for the limitless depths of their love we would not be the men that we are,” said Maxwell.

“I feel my role as an artist coming from the African continent is to remind people again and again, through music and advocacy, how beautiful and important our cultural diversity is. This is what makes our shared humanity so precious,” said Angelique Kidjo.

In honor of the March, performing artist and Music Director of the Women’s March Toshi Reagon recorded an original version of “Ella’s Song” aka “We Who Believe in Freedom Cannot Rest Until it Comes,” a classic protest anthem that was written by Dr. Bernice Johnson Reagon, Toshi’s mother, in honor of civil rights icon Ella Baker. The song was originally recorded by the famed activist A Capella group, Sweet Honey in the Rock. The rally portion of the March will conclude with a live performance of Reagon’s rendition of “Ella’s Song.” All March participants will be invited to join together in song. “Ella’s Song” can be listened to or downloaded here.

“Music engages every part of the body. It is also a call. Anyone within the sound of a voice ringing a good song has the opportunity to join in congregation and not only tell a power for story, but make necessary declarations. Now is the time for action. Now is the time for singing our songs together,” said Reagon.

Held on the first day of the new presidential administration, the Women’s March on Washington aims to send a message to all levels of government and the incoming administration: that we stand together in solidarity and expect elected leaders to act to protect the rights of women, their families and their communities.

“We are inspired by the 150 plus artists that have joined us to say that they will not be silent while the most vulnerable communities come under attack. Artists are the gatekeepers of truth and we are lucky to have these brilliant and brave artist stand in solidarity with the Women’s March on Washington,” said Paola Mendoza, Artistic Director of the Women’s March on Washington.

Producer of the Women’s March on Washington, Ginny Suss said, “Music uplifts, inspires, and empowers during times of protest. At these crucial moments when we are taking to the streets to stand up for our rights, music can fortify us to go on with the hard work ahead.”

The Women’s March on Washington is a women-led grassroots movement that will bring people of all genders and backgrounds together to take a stand on social justice and human rights issues ranging from race, ethnicity, gender, religion, immigration and health care. Over 200 sister marches are also being planned across the country. The March is a statement of solidarity affirming our shared humanity and fundamental human rights.

Zoe Saldana Says Hollywood Bullied Donald Trump

Star of Avatar and Guardians of The Galaxy, Zoe Saldana seems to be quite outspoken yet again but this time blaming Hollywood for making America feel sorry for Donald Trump. The veteran actress believes that Hollywood bullied Trump. “We got cocky and became arrogant and we also became bullies,” says Saldana.

Zoe also said:

“We were trying to single out a man for all these things he was doing wrong… and that created empathy in a big group of people in America that felt bad for him and that are believing in his promises.”

The mother of two-year-old twin boys is hopeful the country as a whole will never return to the toxic days of segregation.

“I’m learning from (Trump’s victory) with a lot of humility. If we have people continue to be strong and educate ourselves and stand by equal rights and treat everyone with respect, we won’t go back to those times.”

Zoe’s remarks come after her frequent comments against prejudice in Hollywood that she boldly makes known.

Could her comments be coming into play as Saldana was dragged for her role in the Nina Simone biopic film? Her interpretation of the iconic star was not spot-on, therefore sending social media into a frenzy with a plethora of not so good replies.

Trump is clearly not the victim here which has us completely confused by Zoe’s mentions taking DT’s side on bullying.

Twitter, however, was not amused…

Agreed.

The Word: LeBron James and Cleveland Cavaliers Teammates Won’t Be Resting Their Heads In Trump Hotels

LeBron James the outspoken leader of the 2015-2016 NBA champions Cleveland Cavaliers won’t be gracing any Trump Hotels in the foreseeable future.

Drake Disses Meek Mill on New freestyle "Back To Back"

Bron and some of his Cavalier teammates will be breaking league protocol by refusing to stay in the Trump SoHo when the Cavs visit New York City to take on the Knicks. The move should come as no surprise, LeBron this past election was a staunch supporter of Hillary Clinton and gave her a ringing endorsement.

NY Mag reported:

“Cavaliers general manager David Griffin said on Monday that the team would find alternative accommodation for any players who don’t want to stay at a Trump property and that plans have been made for any “group that wants to be elsewhere to be together elsewhere.”

The Cavaliers are not the first team who vouched to avoid Trump properties in response to Trump being elected President. The Memphis Grizzlies, Dallas Mavericks and Milwaukee Bucks also stated they will not be staying at any Trump Hotels.

The Cavaliers also were the last championship team to be honored by President Barack Obama at the White House this year.

The boycott is not only focusing on Trump’s property but athletes are already discussing if they would even visit the White House if invited by Trump. Cavaliers guard Iman Shumpert has already stated if the Cavaliers repeat as champions (I hope they do) he will not be visiting the White House to meet with Trump.

Trump’s presidency is definitely filling the air with uncertainty sprinkled with a heavy dose of divisiveness as we don’t know what this man will do once he sets foot in the White House. One thing that is pretty certain folks ain’t here for Trump and the King is leading that parade.
