Thanks to the streaming service Netflix, stand-up comedy has seen an amazing resurgence. The service has had specials from legends like Chris Rock, Jerry Seinfeld and Dave Chappelle, fan favorites like Amy Schumer and Katt Williams, and comics who are just hilarious like Hannibal Buress, Bill Burr, and Ali Wong. With a list like that, it isn't surprising that Netflix would want to host a special with a comedy icon like Mo'Nique. But when it comes to compensation, apparently one of the "Queens of Comedy" doesn't warrant the same pay as other legends, and Mo'Nique isn't standing for it.
Taking the fight to Instagram, Mo'Nique explain why she felt wronged by the streaming company.
"I was offered a $500,000 deal last week to do a comedy special," she explained. "However, Amy Schumer was offered $11 million, Chris Rock and Dave Chappelle $20 million... when we asked Netflix to explain the difference they said, 'Well, that's what we think Mo'Nique would bring."
While many may argue that other comedians would draw more, you can't argue that Mo'Nique has an impressive resume. When this was brought up, Netflix allegedly told her they don't go by resumes. When she asked why Amy Schumer was offered so much more, they then cited her impressive resume.
The conversation that Mo'Nique describes seems to be a classic case of gender bias that is present in almost every field of work including Hollywood. Yet for a person who infamously fought against being "blackballed," her video proves that Mo'Nique is prepared to take on this issue as well.
But unlike her battles of the past, Mo'Nique is not alone in this war. Her video was closely preceded by Black-ish star, Tracee Ellis Ross, announcing she makes "significantly less" than co-star Anthony Anderson, a claim that if it's not corrected, the wage gap may result in the Golden Globe winner devoting less time to the show. Stories like the one shared by Mo'Nique and Ross, appear to speak to the struggle women face in the workforce.
What do you think? Does Mo'Nique have a case? Does she deserve more for a comedy special? More importantly, how do we end the wage gap?

Chicago rapper Fredo Santana died Friday (Jan. 19). Known for his popular mixtapes and work with Migos and Drake, the 27-year-old suffered a fatal seizure.
TMZ reports he was found unresponsive in his L.A. home by his girlfriend. Santana, born Derrick Coleman, was vocal about his lean use, which attributed to his recent health problems. In October 2017, Santana thanked fans for their support after he was hospitalized for kidney and liver failure.
Santana, who is also the cousin of Chief Keef, broke into the Chicago Drill era with Fredo Kruger, It's a Scary Site and his Walking Dead projects. He also released the collaborative mixtape, Turbo Bandana with Keef last year. At the time of his death, Santana was working on the follow-up to Walking Dead.
Santana is survived by his infant son, Legend

I guess greatness just runs in the family. When it come's to accolades, Jay-Z has gotten plenty. Awards, music sales, and all that money. Add is equally as talented (and maybe more popular) wife Beyonce to the equation and greatness goes off the charts. While we are at it, let's not forget that Solange is out there making music history on her own and even little Blue Ivy is a star in the making. No another person related to Hov is ready to be in the spotlight, Gloria Carter, Jay-Z's mom.
Gloria Carter will be honored at the GLAAD Media Awards. This announcement was made Friday morning (Jan. 19), as the award show centered around the inclusiveness of the LGBTQ community revealed that the song "Smile" from JAY-Z's 4:44 album will receive special recognition. The track, which features a sample of Stevie Wonder's "Love's in Need of Love Today," details Gloria's coming-out story from the perspective of her son. "Smile" also features an original poem by Gloria Carter, which is heard at the end.
Congrats Ms. Carter!

The votes have been tallied and the results are in, we now know the starters for the 2018 NBA All-Star Game in Los Angeles on February 18th. The 67th edition of the All-Star Game comes with a new twist, instead of the traditional East vs. West squads, the team captains from each conference will draft a team from the remaining all-stars. This year's team captains, the leading vote-getters in each conference, LeBron James (East) of the Cleveland Cavaliers and Stephen Curry (West) of the Golden State Warriors.
The other players voted in as starters for the East are Giannis Antetokounmpo (Milwaukee Bucks), DeMar DeRozan (Toronto Raptors), Kyrie Irving (Boston Celtics), and Joel Embiid (Philadelphia 76ers).
The remaining starters for the West are Kevin Durant (Golden State Warriors), Anthony Davis (New Orleans Pelicans), James Harden (Houston Rockets), and DeMarcus Cousins (New Orleans Pelicans).
The starters voted in by fans, players and a media panel, were revealed Thursday. James has the first pick in the draft as the leading vote-getter overall, while Curry has the first choice of jersey color, due to the Western Conference having home team status for the game.
They'll choose from a player pool that includes the eight other starters, with no regard to conference designation, and 14 reserves (seven from each conference), chosen by NBA head coaches.
The reserves will be revealed exclusively by TNT's Players Only crew Jan. 23 at 7 p.m. ET.
The newly formatted team rosters will be revealed Jan. 25 during a one-hour edition of TNT NBA Tip-Off at 7 p.m. ET.
