She's all healed up and ready for her next season, and Megan Thee Stallion is wasting no time getting back to work. To be fair, the Houston Hottie has been keeping busy, even with scandal and injuries. She's delivered multiple performances since the July shooting incident involving Tory Lanez, but there have been murmurs about Megan Thee Stallion quietly preparing for the release of her next album. Hot Girl Meg hasn't confirmed or denied the gossip surrounding a potential release, but it's clear that the rapper and her squad have been putting in work.
For those that follow Megan Thee Stallion on Instagram, you should already be familiar with her twerk-heavy page. Videos of Thee Stallion showing the world what she's working with are easy to come by, but her latest is from rehearsal with her team. It's unclear as to what she's currently working on, but her Hotties are still wishing to have those Stallion knees. "LIVE FROM HOT GIRL BOOTCAMP," Meg wrote in the caption to her video. "Let me go remix this for Houston real quick lol."
Since naming Tory Lanez as her shooter, Megan hasn't said much about the allegations she set against her former friend. Now that charges have been made against Lanez and the case is moving forward, it's expected that neither party will continue to discuss the July event. Check out Megan's post below.

It was already an anticipated project, but following the death of star Chadwick Boseman, Ma Rainey's Black Bottom is one of the most talked-about movies of the Fall-Winter season. The Netflix film is slated for release on December 18, and after teasing the movie with images and stills, the streaming service has finally delivered Ma Rainey's first trailer.
Ma Rainey's Black Bottom is an adaptation of a stage play of the same name and stars Boseman, Viola Davis, Glyn Turman, Taylour Paige, and Coleman Domingo. Denzel Washington acts as one of the film's producers along with Todd Black and Dany Wolf. The premise of the film centers around real-life music legend Ma Rainey, the "Mother of the Blues" portrayed by Davis. Boseman tackles the role of Levee, a young man that shakes things up in the 1920 Chicago blues scene.
The trailer spins a tale of an ambitious horn player looking to stake his claim in the industry while also being challenged by his elders. Meanwhile, Ma Rainey is feeling pressure from White music executives who are seeking more control of her voice, causing dissension within her own band. Check out the trailer for Ma Rainey's Black Bottom and let us know if you're looking forward to watching this film.

The Body Acceptance and Body Positivity movements continue to have an ally in Ashley Graham. The celebrated model hasn't been shy about showing off her curves throughout her career, so a little something like a bathroom mirror selfie won't cause her to become shy. Graham posted an internet-breaking picture of herself fully nude—of course, covered strategically—and her fans praised her for showing her untouched form to the world.
Dimitrios Kambouris / Staff / Getty ImagesRecently, Ashley Graham sat down with Jessica Alba and the ladies of Red Table Talk to discuss her experiences in being "mom-shamed." Graham gave birth to her son Isaac back in January and since that time, she says that people have gone from shaming her about her fuller figure to abashing her for her choices as a mother.
“It’s interesting because my whole career has been based around body-shaming because I’m a curvy girl who has come into a skinny world and said that my body, and other bodies like mine, need to be normalized," Graham stated on Red Table Talk. "I knew that it was coming and I was ready to combat it, but it never feels good to have someone tell you that you’re not doing a good enough job, that you’re doing something wrong. I can sit here and tell you that I just brush it off, but I don’t brush it off.”
The model's admirers didn't seem to mind her showing off a little skin. Check out her post below.

For years, Danny Masterson has faced rape allegations from multiple women, and the court case against the That 70's Show actor is moving forward. In 2017, Masterson was dropped from the Netflix series The Ranch when the allegations gained steam, and over the summer, he was officially charged with three counts of forcible rape in connection to three women who told police that the actor assaulted them. The incidents allegedly occurred at Masterson's home in Hollywood Hills between 2001 and 2003.
Mike Coppola / Staff / Getty ImagesThe actor is currently out on a $3.3 million bond and according to Deadline, Danny Masterson will return to court on November 2. Masterson has denied the accusations set against him through a statement released via his attorney earlier this year. It was the hope of Masterson's legal team that the media would be kept from the courtroom during the trial, however, a judge ruled otherwise.
It's reported that if Masterson is convicted of all charges set against him, he could face upwards of 45 years behind bars. In June, his attorney Thomas Mesereau—who represented Michael Jackson in 2005 during the late singer's molestation trial—told reporters that the actor is surprised by the charges.
“Obviously, Mr. Masterson and his wife are in complete shock considering that these nearly 20-year old allegations are suddenly resulting in charges being filed, but they and their family are comforted knowing that ultimately the truth will come out," Mesereau said at the time. "The people who know Mr. Masterson know his character and know the allegations to be false.”

Kanye's brilliance as an artist shouldn't be questioned, despite how questionable he might be these days. But even as he enter politics, he carries the same drive that got him the Roc A Fella chain and launched his career as a rapper after his success as a producer. In a recent interview with Stereogum, Black Thought, fresh off of the release of Streams Of Thoughts Vol. 3, detailed a few collaborations from his career including Talib Kweli's "Guerrilla Monsoon Rap" which also features Pharoah Monch and a young Kanye West.
"He was just hungry. He was about the business of showing people his potential as an artist and what he had already in the clip," Black Thought recounted, describing Kanye as someone who would always be hanging out in the studio. He explained that he witnessed 'Ye's evolution, from being someone he'd see in the studio grinding as a producer to transforming into a multi-talented artist. Thought even said 'Ye nearly followed the exact same steps as the late J. Dilla.
"I saw him evolve from someone who was a producer of tracks to someone who was also an MC," he continued. "I saw him follow in the footsteps of who I feel, to this day, was the greatest rapper/producer, J Dilla. J Dilla, he could sing and rap and play instruments just as well as he could program beats. I watched Kanye in real time evolve, following almost that same blueprint."
Thought recounted hearing early versions of "Hey Mama" and "Jesus Walks" after they finished recording "Guerrilla Monsoon Rap." He added that 'Ye was often just sitting in the studio, soaking game. A testament to his commitment to making that full crossover from a Roc-A-Fella producer to a household name.
"It was the usual cast of characters. With me, Kweli, and Pharoahe in the lab. 88-Keys would always be around, Kanye would always be around," Thought said. "Kanye would sometimes literally be a fly on the wall, and you could see his spongelike nature, just constantly learning and soaking up what was being said, what was being done. What I appreciate about the way he did it, was he made it his own. He was never a biter. He soaked up everything everyone did, but he put his own spin on it."

Somebody hit a soft spot for City Girls rapper JT this weekend, who hit the block button on a fan for simply insinuating that she looks like Dreamville songstress Ari Lennox.
As the world goes crazy over Ari's latest picture uploads on Instagram, JT is likely crossing her fingers that nobody dares to compare her to the singer in the future. The rapper was seemingly bothered after a tweet went viral, suggesting that she looks like Ari Lennox.
"Hear me out," wrote a Chloe x Halle stan account on Twitter, sharing a side-by-side picture comparison of JT and Ari Lennox.
Clearly, the City Girls star was not enthused because, mere hours after the tweet started gaining traction, picking up thousands of retweets and likes, she blocked the user to ensure that she never sees another post from them again. Was the comparison that bad? Ari Lennox is beautiful and, in the images the fan shared, they do look pretty alike. So what made her block them?
JT hasn't commented on the comparison, choosing to leave this one out of her mind.
Despite her being very active on social media, especially Twitter, JT doesn't seem keen to explain what happened and why she blocked the poor fan who was simply pointing something out.
Do you think they look alike?

When Baker Mayfield was drafted by the Cleveland Browns about three seasons ago, there were fans who felt like the Browns were finally on the edge of success. For the most part, Mayfield was great in his rookie season and instilled hope in Browns fans who haven't had a reason to be happy in years. Unfortunately, his second season in the league left a lot to be desired as Mayfield was below average amongst his peers.
This season has been a different story for the Browns who came into their match against the Pittsburgh Steelers with a 4-1 record. With an opportunity to move past the Steelers in the standings, Mayfield came up short as he threw two interceptions in a blowout loss.
Today on FS1's Undisputed, Skip Bayless opted to roast Mayfield for the performance, stating that he feels as though Mayfield is better at doing advertisements on TV than he is at being a quarterback.
"I cannot turn on my TV without seeing 20 straight Baker Mayfield commercials," Bayless said. "He's in danger of making better commercials than plays in a football game. This was a stinker."
If you've been watching games on TV, you've probably noticed how Mayfield's Hulu commercials are on at every single ad break. With this in mind, it's easy to see why Bayless would say something like this, although we're sure Mayfield wouldn't appreciate the take. The Browns quarterback has gotten into it with Colin Cowherd in the past, which could lead to a feud with Bayless.
As for the Browns moving forward, they still have a fairly decent shot at the postseason, despite Sunday's loss.

It hasn't been an easy year for the Young family but, thankfully, Dr. Dre is doing what he can to remind his children that he'll always have their backs.
After twenty-four years of marriage to Nicole Young, the legendary producer/artist is in the midst of an ugly divorce, in which both sides have hurled accusations and insults at the other. Dre and Nicole's children, and especially their daughter Truly Young, have been harassed on social media with comments about their parents. Truice Young, Dre's son, has been relatively silent about the divorce but, this week, he got closer to his father by getting matching ink on his forearm.
"Just got matching tattoos with my son @truiceyoung," wrote Dr. Dre, who showed off the music-inspired piece. "It’s in the DNA. California Love!!"
The new tattoos were done by Doctor Woo, who has already tattooed Truice Young in the past.
At 55-years-old, Dre is finally starting to fill up his arms with new ink but clearly, the art must be important for him to even consider going through so much pain. This time, he bonded with his son to show off their new pieces, which will keep them close forever.
What do you think?

What does Lil Yachty have up his sleeve?
After a busy few weeks, getting arrested for speeding, going viral a few times on social media, and appearing on Celebrity Family Feud, it looks like the slate isn't clearing up for the 23-year-old Atlanta native.
For the last few months, Lil Yachty has been teasing his fanbase about a potential deluxe edition of Lil Boat 3, his album from earlier this year. People have been patient and, without a release date, it's possible that the rapper could be closing in on the drop, hinting at a big announcement coming soon.
"Big announcement coming Soon," wrote the "Oprah's Bank Account" artist on Instagram, sharing a picture of himself with a baby filter, making his cheeks and eyes huge.
It's unclear what the announcement is but, considering he continues to be cryptic about when he's dropping the deluxe version of the album, many are convinced that he's referring to that.
What do you think Lil Yachty is working on that requires so much secrecy?
Dimitrios Kambouris/Getty ImagesRecently, the star has been in the news because of his arrest, in which he was clocked going 150 MPH. This weekend, people tuned in to hear Yachty admit that he bought the house next to his, solely because he wanted no neighbors. Last week, he was also named in a lawsuit, in which a fan accuses him and his team of beating him up at Rolling Loud last year.

Max Kellerman's distaste for Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz has been well-documented over the last couple of years. Following his MVP season, Kellerman has been waiting for Wentz to be truly great and unfortunately, that has yet to happen, mostly due to injury reasons. Whenever Kellerman goes on a rant against the Eagles quarterback, ESPN's First Take makes sure to keep former QB Dan Orlovsky in the vicinity, so they can have an explosive debate. This has happened numerous times in the past, and today, it happened once again except on a larger scale.
In the First Take clip below, Kellerman can be seen discussing why he thinks Wentz is overrated and how the Eagles would be better off starting their rookie back-up quarterback, Jalen Hurts. Of course, Orlovsky takes exception to this and begins berating Kellerman for his opinion. This led to a fiery exchange that was de-escalated by none other than Stephen A. Smith, who wanted to see order restored to the debate.
By the end of the debate, both men had stayed true to their positions, which won't be wavering anytime soon. Kellerman has even suggested that the Eagles should trade Wentz to the Colts for Philip Rivers, which led to some heavy debate just a couple of weeks ago.
At 1-4-1, it's clear that Max won't be letting up anytime soon.
