Happy 44th Birthday, Hip Hop!



Today marks the 44th birthday of the infamous back-to-school jam thrown by the legendary DJ Kool Herc at a block party in the Bronx. Instead of playing full tracks he decided to only play the breaks. Then his friend Coke La Rock got on the mic and that's when they made history.

I can't believe it's already been 44 years. What is your favorite hip hop song/album? I still have a very soft spot for Camp Lo's "Uptown Saturday Night" and Outkast's "ATLiens"

Chloë, 20, recently revealed in an interview that she had a crush on Aaron, 29, when she was 4 years old. Aaron, freshly broken up with Madison Parker, leaped at the opportunity with not one, but two tweets.

The Late Late Show with James Corden


What was late night's opening monologue fodder?

- On Corden, he talks about Trump firing off at McConnell. The jokes are on tweeting while golfing and McConnell not knowing how to use Twitter. He mentions the giant inflatable chicken with Trump hair floating behind the White House. He talks about how Scaramucci compared himself to Monica Lewinsky.

- On Colbert, he also talked about Trump v. McConnell. He jokes about Trump posting a video being all-American. Colbert doesn't want the world to blow up. He talks about the tense relationship between Trump and Colbert.

- On Kimmel, he tees into Trump ratching it up in regards to North Korea. Kimmel wonders where Dennis Rodman is to help? They joke about if Trump is drunk right now. Kimmel calls him TRAGIC for RT-ing a fake poll on Twitter and being needy.

- On Meyers, he also hits up the Trump v. North Korea. He jokes about Tillerson saying that Americans should sleep nicely, but we haven't since November. "Fire and fury" wasn't vetted language. Seth brings up Spicer being seen at the Red Soxs game. Also, the latest rumor of Stephen Miller possibly taking Spicer's previous role which we don't want. BONUS: Tammy Duckworth

Polygon fires Nick Robinson following sexual harassment allegations + Nick Robinson's apology

Polgyon's editor-in-chief Chris Grant has posted an update regarding the situation with video producer Nick Robinson, who was accused of sexually harassing women within the gaming news industry, stating Nick Robinson and Polygon are officially parting ways.


Brief recap:

  • Here is a link to the previous post

  • People within the game industry were accusing someone of "hiding behind a soft and unassuming image to disguise predatory behaviour", referring to Nick Robinson

  • Eventually, after Nick Robinson made a rude tweet about the developers of Overcooked, Bloody Honey from Alpha Six Productions tweeted that "maybe Nick would have time to help the Overcooked devs out if he wasn't in every woman in games' DMs all the time"

  • This lead to many women coming forward about Nick Robinson having harassed them in the past (asking for nudes, making unwanted and persistent sexual avances), along with him apparently pining after an underaged girl (while being fully aware she was underage)

  • Nick Robinson is known for having a large following. Granted, when they did speak out some of the victims were forced to deactivate their Twitter account or lock it following harassment from Nick's fans

i'm very iffy about the apology, it's certainly better than i expected but it's still shit lol and reads a lot like "i'm sorry my popularity made you feel uncomfortable" anyways i'm glad polygon is treating this correctly considering they are one of the few progressive gaming outlets out there

But is Jen willing to share her beauty regimen with Justin?

Amber Heard, Elon Musk Address Split After Stepping Out in Australia




They released a joint statement to People:

“Having read recent articles about our relationship, we would like to speak for ourselves. The distance has been really tough on our relationship, because we haven’t been able to see each other much. All relationships have their ups and downs, of course.

“People occasionally send out speculation, which has no basis in fact, without our knowledge, believing that that they have our best interests in mind. Sometimes, other agendas are at work. It can get a little weird… However, we would like to state directly that we have the utmost respect for one another, and it would be troubling if anyone had the impression that we thought otherwise.

* Judge ruled this evening that Swift did not appear to set out to get former DJ David Mueller fired, therefore she could not be held liable and the case against her was dismissed.

*However, the allegations that Taylor's mother Andrea, and her radio station liaison Frank Bell, are also liable for Mueller's firing were not thrown out, so that evidence will go to the jury for deliberation.

Empire Has Prince-Themed Episode in New Season


Characters Jamal (Jussie Smollett) and Hakeem (Bryshere Y. Gray) will perform a rendition of the late legend's 'Let's Go Crazy' in the fourth episode of the upcoming fourth season. It will take place at a birthday party, so "everybody, all of the cast, is going to be dressed in a Prince theme," says executive producer Sanaa Hamri.

Hamri was a close friend to Prince, even directing the music video for 'Musicology.' She reveals Prince was an avid watcher of Empire and was even talking about appearing on the show.

After these terrible soapy shenanigans (really, an amnesia plot device?), I am done with Empire but this is sweet. Anybody still hanging on?
