At one point in time MTV used to play actual music and show music videos. Not anymore. No, now it’s a channel that consists of programs of pregnant teenagers and idiotic, tanned morons. But, hey I guess if that’s what your audience likes, go for it MTV!
Anyway, every year MTV holds the Video Music Awards, which are are commonly known as the VMAs. It’s basically a terrible way to waste two hours of your life, where “woke” celebrities handout awards to other “woke” celebrities whose songs are primarily played on Top 40 radio.
In order to entice more 12 and 13-year-olds to tune in MTV hires the big celebrity at the moment. This year that meant comedians Kevin Hart and Tiffany Haddish were given the gig. Prior to handing out any of the meaningless awards, the two hosts opened the show by joking and riffing on a number of topics. Trump was the butt of most of their jokes, receiving the majority of their scorn. Kevin Hart in particular made it known that he’s not a fan of the president.
For instance, Kevin Hart told the audience “they can kneel, this isn’t the NFL. There isn’t no old white man, you can do whatever the hell you want” of course referring to Trump’s stance towards the NFL and the national anthem. Hart went on to say “anything can happen, go to the bathroom and send out crazy tweets. It’s basically a typical day at the White House. In your face Trump, suck it.”
Now, that’s fine. Get political with the comedy, alienate half of your audience. For a guy who does absolutely every film he’s offered, this isn’t a smart play economically. But if you’re going to do this kind of comedy at least be funny. Those four minutes of Hart and Haddish just going on and on is anything but funny. And I’m not the only one who had that reaction.
Rev. Al Sharpton was lecturing President Trump on his MSNBC TV show “PoliticsNation” but when wrapping up the segment, made a embarrassing error when quoting the late Aretha Franklin’s best known hit, “Respect.”
Watch the video below.
“So in the words of my late friend Aretha Franklin, show some R-E-S-P-I-C-T, and the next time you get a black woman and a beagle confused, remember this: I got you,” Sharpton said.
Hey Al, what the heck is “R-E-S-P-I-C-T”?
Obviously he wasn’t that great of friends with Ms. Franklin or he’s been hearing a completely different song than the rest of us. In the original lyrics, Franklin can clearly be heard spelling out the word “respect.”
Things are not looking good for The Queen of Soul. Aretha Franklin’s family says the legendary singer and songwriter is gravely ill.
Apparently, the 76-year-old singer has been sick for awhile, but it’s unclear with what exactly. However, family members are asking for prayers as they are gathered around the singer.
This comes after Franklin canceled a number of concerts on the advice of doctors.
Following news of Franklin’s deteriorating condition, fans and celebrities alike tweeted messages of support and sympathy for Franklin and her family.
I don’t know about you, but I never pay attention to the samples of hotel shampoo and conditioner. I travel all the time and bring my own from home because I like the brands I use best.
Apparently pop singer Halsey doesn’t do the same and over the weekend, accused hotel chains of being racist because they don’t provide hair products for African American people. She says chains should be more inclusive and sensitive to other hair types and that they cater to white people with the products they stock in their rooms.
When someone suggested she bring her own, she replied she might be in a position to do so but others financially can’t afford it. I find that REALLY hard to believe. Has she priced travel size products lately? Because normally it’s under $1 or to save even more money, just buy reusable travel size containers you can re-fill with your products you have at home. It’s not that big of a deal.
People weren’t especially supportive of the singer, saying it was a non-issue and hotel shampoo is terrible for all hair types, not just African Americans.
I couldn’t agree with this person more.
Every election season, there are issues and topics that are bound to come up. The state of the economy, Democrats accusing Republicans of threatening women’s healthcare (abortion on demand) and that conservatives are total and complete racists, who all wear white hoods in their free time.
Needless to say liberals love identity politics. Why wouldn’t they? It helps get them votes. Hillary Clinton’s entire campaign was based on the fact that she was a woman and that any female who didn’t vote for her was betraying their gender.
Don’t believe me? The “I’m with Her” candidate said it herself.
Another big voting bloc for the Democratic Party is African-Americans. It’s just generally assumed, at least for Democrats, that black people will and should be Democrats. Why, because, according to Democrats, Republicans and conservatives are evil, vile and are certainly racist people.
So, any time some breaks out of this mold, this thinking that women are supposed to vote and think one way or that African-Americans are supposed to vote a particular way, it upsets things a tad, to say the least.
Don’t believe me? Take a look at all the nice things liberals are saying to Chance the Rapper about this tweet.
See, thinking outside the box is not generally welcomed by loving, accepting liberals. It just takes a simple tweet to set them off.
