Watch: Cassius Launches “CASSIUS Life” Franchise Series Featuring Dej Loaf

[anvplayer video=”4241854″]

One Digital is proud to announce the debut of the CASSIUS Life video franchise — an extension of the master platform, CASSIUS — featuring rap phenom and Columbia Records recording artist,
Dej Loaf.

CASSIUS Life will provide an introspective viewpoint on urban culture’s “dope, woke and unapologetic” figures. This aspirational franchise will highlight fearless trendsetters and key influencers such as Dej Loaf, A$AP Rocky, Migos, and KeKe Palmer — individuals who are creating culture complete with high fashion, famous friends, and stylish events.

Dej Loaf made an explosive impact on the market with the debut of her 2014 Billboard chart-topping single, “Try Me.” Since then, the Detroit native has maintained an impressive presence all while surviving the currents of an ever-changing music business landscape. As she marks a new milestone with the release of her album, Liberated, CASSIUS Life’s five-part miniseries provides an intimate glimpse into her frenetic daily life–meetings, highlights, and lessons learned.

“An artist’s debut is a monumental moment, and for Dej to tap on CASSIUS for this creative partnership affirms passion and spirit we both have to create monumental content right out the gate,” said Cory A. Townes, Associate Editor, Entertainment.

“We are so hyped to capture the work of such a promising new hip-hop artist, especially one who is a fierce woman. The music world has been waiting for DeJ Loaf and now they can come to CASSIUS to check out an authentic side of her artistry they won’t get elsewhere,” said Kierna Mayo, iOne Digital’s SVP of Content & Brands.

Keke Palmer Plans On Pressing Charges Against Trey Songz [Video]

This embed is invalid

Yesterday, Scream Queens star Keke Palmer sat down with Larry King on the multi-Emmy nominated series Larry King Now to discuss her recent Instagram post, in which she claims that R&B singer Trey Songz used “sexual intimidation” to coerce her into his music video shoot, and then released the video publicly without her consent.

Keke recounted:

“I said, first, ‘no’ to the producer, then said ‘no’ to the assistant, and then said ‘no’ to Trey, and then said it again after I came out of the closet.” Adding, “I feel like as a female, often I’m put in situations where sometimes males will use their masculinity, their sexuality, to taunt you […] I hate to say that and make it known, but I ain’t the first person that’s gone through this. People have gone through this all the time.”

Keke also tells Larry that she plans on pressing charges:

“I mean, it’s out and it’s over but I feel more so my point, it’s not just specifically about this person, this guy or what he did. It’s the overall idea that you can’t just do stuff to people and it’s all right. No matter who you are.”

Keke Palmer’s episode premieres Wednesday, February 1st at 11am PST/ 2pm EST on www.ora.tv/larrykingnow.

KeKe Palmer Talks Social Media Clapbacks, Sexism & Her New Crush on The YBF Podcast

https://soundcloud.com/theybfpodcast/keke-palmer

KeKe Palmer & TheYBF.com‘s founder Natasha Eubanks sat down this week for a crazy new episode of The YBF Podcast, plus a mini photoshoot!  It was all hosted at the gorgeous Samsung 837 experiential flagship & cultural destination in New York City’s Meatpacking District.
 
KeKe talks about getting the internet trolls together, her sexy 90’s inspired image, her new NBA love interest, why she used Kylie Jenner to talk about beauty standards, and gives the tea on the movie industry. While chatting about her new EP Lauren, she exclusively revealed what she’s working on with Chris Brown.
 

KeKe also dished on why she’s unbothered by people who don’t love her new image, the MAJOR divas she wants to play in a biopic, that tragic Aaliyah biopic, playing in a new lesbian love story movie called “Pimp”, the craziest celeb contacts in her phone, and who she would smash-marry-kill (both men AND women).

A few highlights:

 

On clapping back during social media drama:

“You see me clapping back because I’m a real person.  I don’t feel like just because I’m on tv I have to hold myself to the standard you think that I should.  I want everyone to stop believing and buying into ‘Just because you’re famous, why would you pay attention to me,’ and all these things that aren’t true.. “

 

On her new crush:

Jimmy Butler [of the Chicago Bulls].  Girl, he is fine!”

 

On the Kanye & Trump debacle:

“You don’t know if he’s doing it all for a gag or…Him and Donald Trump could be in on some ish together for all we know.  There’s so much entertainment that goes on and it’s so well thought out and so organized, I don’t even think people realize it.”

 

On sexism:
“The age thing, I always felt. The African American thing, I always felt.  The sexism, that came with womanhood. I could not believe it. It is horrific. My mama always told me to keep your eye on the prize…We honestly do have to swallow our pride. Women have to do it more then men do….[So now I say], ‘I’m listening to you, I’m loving everything you’re saying. But last time I checked, I had 4.4 million followers and I don’t need you to let me release my video.'”
 
On what she REALLY meant by her Kylie Jenner social media post about beauty standards:
 
“It’s no disrespect, but this family is the biggest example of this which is, ‘I’ll do anything that they want me to do to get the attention.’ When people are saying ‘Yeah I love this,’ you’re buying into them saying ‘I’ll do anything to make myself the beauty standard’….We send a lot of different conflicting messages.  When was the last time we ever praised a girl for being natural [physically]?”

Keke Palmer Tackles Gender Roles & Relationships on “Reverse Psychology” [New Video]

Keke Palmer takes on the role of her man to give him a dose of “Reverse Psychology.”

Palmer delves into the subject of gender roles and relationships on her latest record. The video opens with a fitting quote,

“To change the thoughts of men, it takes a real woman to reverse his psychology.”

As the video progresses, the Screams Queens actor asks her boo if he could handle Palmer feeding him a bunch of lies and excuses for stepping out on their relationship.

“What if I told you, I was out loving another man / What if I told you, you didn’t mean a thing / What if I told you, that I loved you so / But these hoes I can’t let go / Could you handle all the things that you told me?”

From the way things play out he most certainly cannot.

Watch “Reverse Psychology” below.
