The shoes became available on Saturday (Mar.6) at 7:00 AM through the Adidas app and YeezySupply.com and were sold out by 7:01 AM.

City Girls' JT Faces Backlash For Blocking A Fan Who Is Battling Cancer



City Girls' JT Faces Backlash For Blocking A Fan Who Is Battling Cancer
 

'City Girls' rapper JT is facing some major backlash from fans and has apparently deactivated her Twitter account. She is being accused of blocking a fan on social media who is currently battling cancer. On Saturday (March 6), A fan by the name of Shaddai Randolph replied to one of JT's tweets in hopes of speaking with the rapper. Randolph wrote,

"Hey JT sorry to bother u I know I've said this b4 but I'm a fan of urs & I think ur amazing & funny. Seeing u help me keeps my spirits up when I'm in pain. Im dying & have cancer. You said u would DM me but never did. I still would like facetime u for 5mins if possible Luv u."



"She blocked me y'all won. "Y'all can [keep sending] me death messages and [sending] me emails to die on my go fund me or to my mother. Y'all won I get it."

Shaddai Randolph originally reached out to JT on Feb.28 informing the rapper that she is a huge fan and is dying of cancer and would love to talk for 5 minutes. JT seemed open to speaking with her fan and replied,

"About to DM you."

However, it looks like the rapper didn't DM Randolph as promised.

Many people quickly criticized JT for blocking her cancer-stricken fan. In a string of tweets, the 28-year-old rapper says it was all a "misunderstanding".

"THAT WAS A MISUNDERSTANDING BUT FOREAL NOW ITS F*CK YALL!"

Before deactivating her account, JT explained that she thought Randolph's twitter account was fake.

"I followed her back & everything wtf.... before I could actually get to call she was spamming me I went through her page & thought it was fake!"

Lee Daniels Says Actor Hugh Jackman Wanted Him To Direct 'Wolverine' Movie After Seeing 'Precious'

Lee Daniels, Hugh Jackman

Lee Daniels Says Actor Hugh Jackman Wanted Him To Direct 'Wolverine' Movie After Seeing 'Precious'
According to Lee Daniels, Hugh Jackman was so impressed with Precious that he wanted the "Empire" creator to join the Marvel team.

Lee Daniels said in an interview with Collider that Hugh Jackman, who plays Wolverine in the X-Men franchise, approached him after seeing the Oscar-winning movie Precious. 

Lee Daniels said Hugh Jackman's request didn't get far once he arrived at the studios.

"He sent me into the studio to Fox... And I had never done a studio film before and it was a disaster."

He continued,

"I pulled over to the Kentucky Fried Chicken afterward and ate a whole six-pack of wings. It was the worst meeting of my life. I don't know how he gets Wolverine from Precious, but I love him and he's a friend to this day."



Lee Daniels has gone on to head several successful projects, most recently The U.S. vs. Billie Holiday, where he had to do a little convincing of his own. He revealed recently he had to persuade Andra Day to accept the role. 

"She didn't believe that she could do it. When I met her, she was talking herself out of a job! She loved Billie Holiday and wanted to honor her."

He also said directing the movie

"affected me in a way that I had never been affected before by anything - the beauty and everything that film represented."

Andra Day went on to win a Golden Globe for Actress In A Drama Motion Picture.

Inauguration Poet Amanda Gorman Says She Was Racially Profiled By Security Guard: This Is The Realit



Inauguration Poet Amanda Gorman Says She Was Racially Profiled By Security Guard: This Is The Reality Of Black Girls, One Day You're Called An Icon, The Next A Threat
Amanda Gorman is opening up about a recent experience where she was racially profiled.

The 22-year-old, who went viral after her inspiring reading of "The Hill We Club" during President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris' inauguration detailed the incident on social media.



She wrote Friday, March 5th:

"A security guard tailed me on my walk home tonight. He demanded if I lived there because "you look suspicious." I showed my keys & buzzed myself into my building. He left, no apology. This is the reality of black girls: One day you're called an icon, the next day, a threat."

She continued,

"In a sense, he was right. I AM A THREAT: a threat to injustice, to inequality, to ignorance. Anyone who speaks the truth and walks with hope is an obvious and fatal danger to the powers that be."

Amanda Gorman became the nation's youngest inaugural poet when she took the stage at the event in January. She's gearing up to release a book The Hill We Climb on March 30th.

Bruno Mars Denies Appropriating Black Culture: This Music Comes From Love, If You Can't Hear That I



Bruno Mars Denies Appropriating Black Culture: This Music Comes From Love, If You Can't Hear That I Don't Know What To Tell You
After a long hiatus, Bruno Mars returned with new music, and a response to accusations that he appropriates black culture.

Silk Sonic released "Leave The Door Open" with Bruno Mars and Anderson .Paak earlier this week, putting Bruno Mars back in the spotlight for the first time in months.



While making his rounds to promote the song, he stopped by The Breakfast Club and was asked for his reply to those who call him a "culture thief."

"You can't look at an interview, you can't find an interview where I'm not talking about the entertainers that have come before me. And the only reason why I'm here is because of James Brown, is because of Prince, Michael [Jackson]. That's the only reason why I'm here."

A post shared by The Breakfast Club (@breakfastclubam)


He continued,

"I'm growing up as a kid, watching Bobby Brown [and] saying, 'OK, if that's what it takes to make it, then I've got to learn how to do the running man, I've got to learn how to do the moonwalk.' That's it. And this music comes from love, and if you can't hear that, then I don't know what to tell you."

He also said,

"What is the point if us, as musicians, can't learn from the guys that've come before us? What did they do?"

When asked if the scrutiny upsets him he said,

"... It comes with the gig. And there's real merit to what people are saying about Black entertainers not getting their flowers, and I'm championing with that, I'm with that ... I understand, but it's just Twitter."

Pharrell Williams Opens Hotel In Miami With Nightlife Pioneer David Grutman

Pharrell Williams Opens Hotel In Miami With Nightlife Pioneer David Grutman
Pharrell Williams is taking his talents to the hospitality industry.

The producer and singer is opening a hotel in South Beach with nightlife pro David Grutman, known as the hospitality king in Miami. The project, which has been in the works for three years, suffered a major slow down due to COVID-19. Now The Goodtime Hotel is complete and ready to start hosting guests next month. Room rates start at $260 a night.

Pharrell Williams said of the venue, which sits on Washington Ave., during an interview with Ocean Drive, 

"The Goodtime will light up this community. People are going to be inspired by what we're doing here. It will be good energy, good vibrations, good space and, of course, a good time."

David Grutman explained how Pharrell Williams came up with the name.

"Pharrell said to me, 'I think we should name it The Goodtime as one word-and really change the narrative.' That's been our whole vision for everything we're doing. [In recent years], Washington Avenue has not been thought of as the star. We want to change that-this won't be a place to just lay your head."

Williams also told Vogue; 

"It's good vibes, good energy, good karma, good food, good music, good environment, good vibration."

David Grutman told the publication,

"One thing I've noticed in my life is that places that were amazing at one time always have a great chance of being amazing again, because there's something about the energy of that latitude and longitude where The Goodtime is located that just works. To me, it was the best block, and to be able to be part of it coming back, is just so special to me."

CBS Allegedly Paid $7 Million For Meghan Markle & Prince Harry's Sit Down With Oprah Winfrey



CBS Allegedly Paid $7 Million For Meghan Markle & Prince Harry's Sit Down With Oprah Winfrey
CBS is said to be paying a pretty penny for Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's revealing interview with Oprah Winfrey. 

According to reports, the network is paying $7 million to air the conversation after purchasing the lucrative rights from Oprah Winfrey's Harpo Productions. It can also license the interview in other countries.

CBS in return is charging $325,000 for every 30 seconds of commercial time.

Still, a rep for Meghan Markle and Prince Harry says they won't be paid for the sit-down.

It's said to be a telling one as a new clip released showed Meghan Markle suggesting that the palace blocked her from speaking to the media mogul before her 2018 royal wedding. Oprah Winfrey told Meghan Markle,

"So I just want to say that I called you either February or March 2018 before the wedding, asking would you please give me an interview, and you said I'm sorry, it's not the right time, and finally we get to sit down and have this conversation."

Meghan Markle replied,

"Well, I remember that conversation very well. I wasn't even allowed to have this conversation with you personally, right? There had to be people from the... sitting there, everything was..."

Oprah added,

"There were other people in the room when I was having that conversation."

Meghan confirmed Oprah's suspicions before the media mogul continued and said,

"You turned me down nicely and said, perhaps there will be another time when there's the right time. What is right about this time?"

Meghan explained,

"Well, so many things. Um, that we're on the other side of a lot of - a lot of life experience that's happened, and also that we have the ability to make our own choices in a way that I couldn't have said yes to you then. That wasn't my choice to make. So as an adult who lived a really independent life to then go into this construct that is different than I think what people imagine it to be, it's really liberating to be able to have the right and the privilege in some ways to be able to say yes, I'm ready to talk."



The full interview will air on CBS Sunday, March 7th at 8/7c.

Houston Rapper Chucky Trill Fatally Shot In Atlanta Highway Shooting, Was In Town To Perform At NBA All-Star Weekend Event [CONDOLENCES]
A Houston rapper who traveled to Atlanta to perform for the NBA All-Star weekend was sadly shot and killed during an interstate shooting Friday morning (March 5th).

Chucky Trill (born Corey Detiege) was fatally shot while on I-85 South close to Jimmy Carter Boulevard. His manager of Boneafide Entertainment confirmed the news 11Alive.

Multiple lanes on the highway were closed for several hours shortly after. Gwinnett police responded to a call about the highway shooting and discovered Chucky Trill in a car on the side of the road. He was rushed to the hospital where he passed away. He suffered at least one gunshot wound.

While there were other people in the car, bystanders couldn't describe the suspect's vehicle. Police say the incident involved two cars.

Gwinnett Police Department Public Information Officer, Cpl. Collin Flynn said,

"Obviously these types of shootings are very concerning for the police department. Not only do you have the two vehicles that are involved in this shooting, but you also have multiple people that are driving on the interstate that could also be victims to these types of crimes."

Boneafide Entertainment also said the victim's father was in the 90s group Trinity Garden Cartel in Houston.

Atlanta has seen a total of seven highway shootings this year so far.
Prayers for Chucky Trill's family, friends, and loved ones.

Kim Kardashian Compares 'Traumatizing' Scrutiny She Received While Pregnant To Britney Spears Critic

Kim Kardashian Compares 'Traumatizing' Scrutiny She Received While Pregnant To Britney Spears Criticism: It Can Break The Strongest Person
 

Kim Kardashian is reacting to Britney Spears' documentary, Framing Britney Spears, and comparing the scrutiny they've received over their careers.



Kim Kardashian took to Instagram and said she received overwhelming backlash when she was pregnant.

"So I finally watched the Britney Spears documentary this week and it made me feel a lot of empathy for her. The way the media played a big role in her life the way it did can be very traumatizing and it can really break even the strongest person. No matter how public someone's life may seem, no one deserves to be treated with such cruelty or judgement for entertainment."

 

She said she had this experience while pregnant with North West.



She said she used the scrutiny as "motivation" to become the woman she is now.

She then shared examples of memes that she was the subject of during her pregnancy.



She concluded,

"These are just a few examples...I'm tired of googling! Ok heading off to my workout now LOL"
