It seems pretty common these days among the new crop of rappers to move away from traditional hip-hop swag towards a more haute couture look. Rhymers like A$AP Rocky and Young Thug have been the subject of countless discussions over their choice of dress, and now Lil Uzi is often mentioned in the conversation as well.

Last week, the Philly rapper generated some chatter after being seen out in a shirt that many felt was better suited for a woman than a man, though he proudly revealed to a fan that it cost over two grand.

So on Sunday, it was no surprise when Lil Uzi hit the magenta carpet at the 2017 Billboard Music Awards rocking another high-priced shirt which blurred gender lines a bit.

Speaking with Sway and The Real‘s Jeannie Mai, Lil Uzi commented on the Valentino top he was wearing. “Oh yeah, this is some good Valentino…good Valentino, the good stuff,” said Uzi of the shirt, which was made from a white, diaphanous fabric.

After Sway had brought up the backlash Uzi received last week over his shirt, the rapper revealed that the Valentino also cost $2,400. Sway then asked how he responds to the haters.

“You know what it is? They’ve never felt these fabrics before. That’s all it is,” said Uzi with a smile.

Article Image: Amber Rose Allegedly Bans Club DJ From Playing Any Kanye or Wiz Songs

Amber Rose’s split from Kanye West was not a pretty one, with him making comments about Rose that were seen as derogatory months after. From there, Rose went on to have a child with Wiz Khalifa, and it seemed as if the two were at peace with each while raising their son. However, an appearance by Rose at nightclub may indicate that she is over both of those rappers. Recently, Amber Rose was booked for an appearance in Miami at Ora Nightclub. Before reaching the spot, she allegedly told the club not to play any music from Kanye West or Wiz Khalifa.

A source from the nightclub told the NY Post “Rose was specific in asking for no Kanye, and definitely no Wiz songs. She wanted the night to be about herself and she succeeded.” Rose also was seen hanging out with French Montana that night.

Oscar winner Mo’Nique went NUCLEAR on Lee DanielsTyler Perry and Oprah … blaming the trio for her getting shut out of Hollywood — in not so many words.

The comedian did a standup special Saturday night at the Apollo Theater, and went off about getting blackballed. She insisted that’s the wrong term to use. She prefers … “whiteballed” … “by some n*****s who had no balls.”

Mo’Nique had a falling out with “Precious” director Lee Daniels after she won the Oscar for that movie, and she’s made the ‘blackballed in Hollywood‘ claim before. But this is the first time she’s lumped in Oprah and Tyler.

She’s also never said it this viciously — “Y’all can suck my d***, if I had one!”

Gladys Knight Sides w/ Dionne Warwick, Calls Out Aretha Franklin

Gladys Knight Calls Out Aretha Franklin

Gladys Knight is #TeamDionne, when it comes to the alleged rift between legendary singers Dionne Warwick and Aretha Franklin. During a recent interview with Hip Hollywood, Gladys spoke about the situation, stating:

I know my sister, Dionne. It ain’t nothing to her. Now Re [Aretha], is a little bit different. It’s just one of those things, everybody got their little knick knacks going on.

Siding with Dionne, she continued,

Dionne is gon’ speak her mind and she’s gon tell the truth. Re is gon’ be sensitive and cause a whole lot of rift raft.

See the clip.

Glady’s comments were in reference to a recent interview that Aretha did in which she revealed that she has serious issue with Dionne.

As previously reported,  Aretha called out Dionne over an issue that seems to go back over five years. Aretha claims that Dionne fabricated a story that she was Whitney Houston’s godmother. The comments were allegedly made, back in 2012 at the late singer’s funeral. Aretha says of Dionne,

She blatantly lied on me;  fully well knowing what she was doing. 

At the time, Dionne told attendees at the funeral that Aretha was there and introduced her, but then realized she wasn’t in attendance.

Referring to Aretha by her nickname, Dionne reportedly said,

Ree’s not here, but she is here. She loves Whitney as if she were born to her. She is her godmother.

Aretha says that at the time, she could not attend, as she was suffering from swollen feet and missed the funeral so she could perform later that night at Radio City Music Hall in New York, which she said she was contractually obligated to do.

Cissy Houston (2014)

Days after the funeral and Dionne’s comments, Cissy Houston, Whitney Houston’s mother, clarified that Aretha wasn’t Whitney’s godmother (it was Darlene Love). However, Aretha took offense to the comment and opted to address it at a later time.

There’s been so much going on around her (Houston), around the service, around the drugs, around her and Bobby (Brown) supposed to be fighting, I didn’t want to add anything to that and I didn’t want to be a part of that. 

Five years later, Aretha is ready to speak on the situation. She says that she saw Dionne last week at the Tribeca Film Festival’s premiere of mentor Clive Davis’ documentary, “Clive Davis: The Soundtrack of Our Lives,” and she also performed. Aretha says of their interaction,

She said, ‘Give me a hug.’ I said, ‘Oh hell no. You couldn’t be serious’.

When asked if she wanted an apology she replied,

I don’t care about her apology, at this point it isn’t about an apology, it’s about libel. We’ve never been friends and I don’t think that Dionne has ever liked me.

Dionne has responded about the situation, via her rep, stating:

She will not dignify a response to the statement made by Aretha Franklin.

Aretha has yet to comment on Glady’s recent comments.

She obviously thought it was a game. However, she was left EXTRA quiet and holding her face once the man had enough of her blatant disrespect. NEW YORK, NEW YORK — When will folks learn the offensive severity of the word “n***er”? Some people think they’re untouchable, only to find out they’re just an arm’s reach away. That’s what happened to this woman. The woman slurringly yells at a man, calling him the N-word. While the man was on the phone, she targeted him. For her, it only intensifies. So, the man gets up. He’s getting ready to let her have it. While she attempted to embarrass and degrade him by constantly throwing the N-word, she ended up going silent after his hand connected with her face one good time. And, it was quite the blow to her ego. She sounded drunk. That probably sobered her up a little. Now…we don’t condone a man hitting a woman. Yet, do you think she deserved it?

Stacey Dash
Stacey Dash

Leaked audio tapes reveal new conservative hero Stacey Dash is just in it for the money.

The Business Standard News has acquired audio files of a conversation between Stacey Dash and her friend Rashika Johnson. Dash is heard on tape breaking down why she decided to come out as a conservative.

“Girl, it’s all about getting paid,” Dash said. “I’m in my 40s going up against bitches half my age for roles. It was getting tough. This conservative gig is about cash money. I got a mortgage and kids to put through college.”

Dash also said she was hired at FOX News because of her looks, not her political opinions.

“They hired me because I make old, white dudes horny,” Dash told her friend. “Take a look at the other women on FOX News, they all look like models. Hell, I get emails from old white men in the South, saying they never thought of f**king a black woman until they saw me.”

“Ann Coulter told me there is good money to be made selling lame books to dumb rednecks,” Dash said. “Like her, I don’t believe half the crap I say. I’m an actress, give me a script and I’ll give you a performance.”

Dash also says becoming a conservative was a great career move.

“I got a book deal, a TV gig and a bunch of speaking engagements lined up,” Dash said. “And unlike in Hollywood, I can keep this going even when I get old.”
