Iggy quickly decided to respond, blasting the argumentative rapper for selling soaps for a living and having buck teeth.

Ariana Grande's ex Ricky Replies to Her Song

Ari's ex (bf circa 2015/2016) gave a light hearted nod to her song "Thank U, Next" which name dropped a handful of her exes. Partner in donut licking crime Ricky posted a video of himself listening to the song and zoomed in when his name was mentioned.

Ari responded on IG stories to his video and said he was given 'the worst line' but it was meant 'lovingly'. Ricky showed gratitude and said her songs were fire.

It's safe to say theyre on good terms after she recorded "Knew Better/Knew Better pt.II" in reference to him (?)

Overshadowed by Rick's departure, it was also Lauren Cohan's last TWD episode


Last night, fans, stans, and trapped hate-watchers tuned in for Rick's last episode on The Walking Dead. What got overshadowed was Maggie's last episode. It was known for awhile this was her last season and showrunner Angela Kang shared she might be back, if she wants to.

"That's the last of her for this season," Kang told THR. "I would hope it's not the last you'll see of her for the show, but she is not in any immediately forthcoming episodes."

What's next for Maggie Greene? Lauren's slated to appear in ABC's Whiskey Cavalier next year. Angela Kang also said Maggie could have her own movie.

"We’re just going to figure out different ways to do it. It might be me shooting Lauren in between scenes of Whiskey Cavalier, of Maggie in a post-apocalyptic Prague."

This news should have come long ago as USAG kept proving over and over again that they're trash and survivors have been asking for their decertification. FIG still needs to fire Ron Galimore who also has a big part in deciding the qualfication process for the next Olympics. I also feel for the current US gymnasts who have to deal with all of this.

Vikings s5b promo roundup

[(SPOILER) Season 5b description]In the mid-season five finale, the divide between the Lothbrok family climaxes with Ragnar’s sons battling each other to rule the world. The long-awaited faceoff ends with a strategic victory going to Ivar the Boneless (Alex Høgh Andersen) who vows vengeance on his betrayers with a direct target on Lagertha’s (Katheryn Winnick) back. Last seen in an unstable state and losing her appearance as a fierce Viking warrior, Lagertha is hopeful she will regain her spot in Kattegat as its rightful leader.

Season five returns on November 28 with the arrival of a legendary Viking, the famous Duke Rollo (Clive Standen), who causes further upheaval in a Kattegat still reeling from Ivar the Boneless becoming its King. As Bjorn (Alexander Ludwig) and Lagertha flee Ivar’s murderous forces with Bishop Heahmund (Jonathan Rhys Meyers), Ivar’s tyrannical reign over Scandinavia ushers in a new Dark Age, the likes of which have never been seen. Ultimately, Ivar’s reign will not go unchallenged by the sons of Ragnar and old enemies will become allies to defeat the despot who has declared himself a God on earth. Meanwhile in Iceland, Floki (Gustaf Skarsgård) battles the elements, and his own settlers’ desire for revenge, to forge a Viking colony on the beautiful and desolate landscape.

ONTD Original: These Were Guitar-Tinged Midtempo 2000s R&B Ballads

These Were Guitar-Tinged Midtempo 2000s R&B Ballads

This theme is a mouthful, but nevertheless a full mood and sound at one point in time, when there would be drama about someone stealing our Myspace song. We have to credit r&b icon Ne-Yo for encompassing this sound and penning a whole bunch of hits during this era, including several from these 10 items. This is sort of a spin off to another previous post, but I'm having another nostalgia night. Do you remember these songs?

Hate That I Love You - Rihanna ft. Ne-Yo

The Queen Has Reportedly Invited Meghan Markle's Mom to Spend Christmas With the Royals

If true, this a breach of protocol as family of the royal family's in-laws never get invited to stay for holidays.

A source close to the family says that the invitation is a "mark of [the Queen's] respect" for Meghan, an acknowledgement that she doesn't have any family in England.

Doria Ragland reportedly has been invited to stay at Sandringham House (the Queen's estate) in Norfolk, England for the duration of the royal family's holiday festivities.

The Queen likely also considered the fact that Meghan Markle is pregnant for the first time and away from her mother, whereas the Duchess of Cambridge had access to her mother throughout all three of her pregnancies.
