The Weekly Round-Up: Star Jones Targets The Basketball Wives, Beyonce Is ‘The Most Beautiful Woman In The World,’ & Nicki Drops A New Video
Welp. I guess it was only a matter of time, but people are finally sick of the ratchetness that is Basketball Wives. A petition has been circulating the web for the past week, boycotting the show. People, names Beyonce the ‘Most Beautiful Woman in the World,’ and Nicki Finally drops the “Starships,” Video!
Basketball Wives Petition
Even Star Jones had something to say on twitter after the last episode where Jennifer Williams got pimp-slapped, not even by a cast member but an assistant.
Star Jones tweeted,
“It may be “comfortable” to be quiet when women of color slap the crap out of each other & run across tables barefoot, but #ENOUGHisENOUGH.
And the thought that the woman from #BBW who was smacked doesn’t have the RIGHT to file assault charges is LUDICROUS! #ENOUGHisENOUGH
Be mad. But think about what I said. WE ARE BETTER than that. You’re either part of the problem or part of the solution. #ENOUGHisENOUGH”
Tami Roman is blaming the Vh1 producers, stating,“… call out VH1 because I will join that battle. I come with my storyline and things that I want to introduce and low and behold what they want to show are those dramatic moments.”
And the boss b**** in charge, Shaunie O’Neal, said, “Sometimes It can be a bit of bullying going on because of the personalities being a lot stronger, you know like Evelyn’s personality is a lot stronger than Jen’s, so it does seem like its bullying but I don’t think Jen would think she’s bullied. I don’t think she would want to take that role of being bullied because I think she is strong in her own way. It’s just a different way of dealing with it.”
Harriet Tubman did not travel through the underground railroad for Evelyn to explain why “we ain’t about that life!”
Rosa Parks did not sit on the front of that bus so that you can throw a wine bottle at someone in the middle of a restaurant!
Sojourner Truth did not write so that Jen could get slapped by your assistant!
No ma’am she did not.
The show is entertaining when you know the difference between real woman of color and gold-digging, angry chicks with daddy issues just looking for a come-up through men.
But unfortunately most of America thinks that we’re all like this.
Beyonce Most Beautiful Woman in the World
Beyonce was named “Most Beautiful” in People Magazines annual “Most Beautiful People” issue.
She does not look great in the cover shot but she credits little Blue Ivy as the reason she’s feeling more beautiful than ever.
“I feel more beautiful than I’ve ever felt because I’ve given birth. I have never felt so connected, never felt like I had such a purpose on this earth.”
Nicki Minaj drops “Starships” Video!
Well not only is Nicki back on twitter, but she also dropped the video for her latest single ‘Starships’. It’s another dance-pop song from Nicki and I actually like it.
But this video.
She’s just frolicking on the beach in bikini’s, lace fronts, and hawaiian-tribal men.
At the end of the video, I thought to myself, “well that’s 5-minutes of my life that I won’t get back.”
The video was underwhelming and unnecessary.
She looked like an extra from Mystikal’s “Shake Ya A**” video, awkwardly placed in a Katy Perry video.
She was trying to dance, knowing all she could do was twerk. Just stop.
Take a look for yourself. (Linked in the archives below)
