Travis Scott Arrested For ‘Inciting’ Riot At Show In Arkansas

(SL) – Well, this isn’t the first time this has happened. But considering that there have been a number of video released showing die-hard Travis Scott fans jumping from balconies; I think authorities are trying to give him a hint. “Tone it down.”

The Rogers Police Department reports that the “Antidote” rapper, 25, was arrested soon after he left the stage at the Walmart Arkansas Music Pavilion.

Police say during the concert Scott (real name: Jacques Webster) “encouraged people to rush the stage and bypass the security protocols to ensure concertgoer safety.” Several people were injured as the crowd rushed to the stage, including a security guard and a member of the police department. The  injured people were treated at the scene by members of the Rogers Fire Department and Mercy Medical.

Scott is being charged with inciting a riot, endangering the welfare of a minor and disorderly conduct and was transported to the Benton County Sheriff’s office. He was booked at the Benton County Detention Center at 11:14 p.m. He was released at 11:26 p.m.

This isn’t the first time (or even the second time) that Scott’s caused some mayhem during shows. Earlier in the month, he was filmed encouraging fans to jump from a balcony at a concert in New York City.

Video shows Scott encouraging a fan to jump from the third floor. The fan broke his leg and Travis was videotaped giving the guy a $100,000 dollar ring as he lay on the ground unable to stand.

No word yet on if the fan plans on suing Scott. Which is unlikely, seeing that no one pushed him. But you never know. In addition, he was arrested after allegedly calling on fans to jump the barricades at Lollapalooza 2015. And there was also an incident in Chicago that led to his arrest as well.

Earth to Travis…Keep the energy but don’t encourage fans to jump or bum-rush the stage. Kids.

 

 

Atlanta City Councilman Kwanza Hall Presents A Proclamation And Award To OWN TV’s Keith David

(SL) – Atlanta is turning into the Hollywood of the south partly in part because of people like Oprah Winfrey filming their projects in the city; and actors like Keith David taking up residency while working. Greenleaf has become one of the most popular shows on television and Keith David stars as Bishop Greenleaf in the church drama. 18194909_1527832843907103_2328061110637247847_n

Greenleaf is just one of over 150 credits David has under his name. So, it was no surprise when District 2 City Councilman Kwanza Hall wanted to honor the Emmy award winning actor with a proclamation and award from the Mayor’s Office for Film and TV.

He also declared April 30th Keith David Day. The presentation took place during that Arts and Icons Master Event for working and and aspiring actors. Led by Keith David and hosted by Sytonnia Moore, So You Wanna Be An Actor was a 4 hour workshop designed to give actors the foundation of basics and tips to hone their craft and work side by side with a legend.

After the workshop, David surprised the audience with a performance with his Jazz band! I know right…who knew? The man is synonymous with talent. And as expected, it was good…really good! He hopes to take up residency in Las Vegas and once the word gets out about just how good he is..I’m sure he’ll be booked in no time. In the meantime, you can catch him Wednesday nights on OWN playing James Greenleaf.  The mid-season finale airs this week!

Legendary Chuck Berry Dead At 90

(SL) – One of Rock-n-Roll’s greatest pioneers has left us. Chuck Berry gave us the hits Maybellene, Roll Over Beethoven, Johnny B. Goode, and was famous for his duck walk was found dead at his home Saturday afternoon.

St. Charles County Police confirmed they responded to a medical emergency at his home near St. Louis, Missouri, at 12.40 pm.

He was found unresponsive and could not be revived.  He was pronounced dead at 1.26 pm.

Real name Charles Edward Anderson Berry, he was a one of kind performer and present in rock’s infancy in the 1950’s, emerging as its first star guitarist and lyricist and breaking color barriers.

Some of the biggest names in Rock expressed their shock and sympathy online as the tributes continue to pour in for the legend.

 

Respected by all, the Daily Mail reports, Bob Dylan called Berry ‘the Shakespeare of rock’n’roll,’ and he was one of the first popular acts to write as well as perform his own songs.

Beyonce Brings Beautiful Bump And Theater To Grammy Awards

(SL) – Now Coachella will have an idea of what to expect and by the display she put on at the Grammy Awards it will be a gloriously pregnant affair.  With Jay Z and Blue Ivy sitting front and center Queen Bey did what she does best. Performed.

c4gkydxwcaab1fn

Super pregnant with twins, the superstar moved ethereally and relied on theatrics, special effects and her dancers to deliver a moving and poignant performance. To give it the full praise that it deserves, I’ll use the phrase she coined with her mega successful, Grammy Award winning Album ‘Lemonade’ ….She Slayed.

Dressed in a long, floor-length gold, sheer belly-highlighting gown with matching headpiece, and her official gold performance gown, she looked stunning. Her mother Tina Lawson introduced her and took time to acknowledge both of her Grammy award winning daughters before she brought her oldest queen to the stage.

“What makes me most proud and why why I’m here tonight to introduce Beyoncé is the devotion and love I see in her for my daughter, and the way she has always expressed love to all of those around her,” Tina Lawson said in her introduction of Beyoncé’s performance. I believe she earned nine Grammy nominations for her Lemonade album because of all of that and more. It’s evident in her powerful words and music.”

The girl is good. Both Blue Ivy and her twin siblings will have the memory of performing on stage with mommy before officially coming to the world. As we all know, Beyoncé  announced her first pregnancy during the 2011 MTV Video Music Awards while singing “Love on Top.” This time the 35-year old took to Instagram with a full body photo to share the news.

“We would like to share our love and happiness. We have been blessed two times over. We are incredibly grateful that our family will be growing by two, and we thank you for your well wishes.” What a beautiful moment! Can’t wait to see the twins!

Battle Of The Babes: Beyonce, Rihanna And Adele All Up For Record Of The Year

(SL) – Beyonce’s got  9 nominations for tonight’s Grammy Awards and it will surely be a battle with Queen Bey among stellar company for several nominations. But the Record Of The Year nod has created a lot of buzzzzzz and not because the leader of they Beyhive is nominated, but for who else is listed in the category.

0201-beyonce-inset-810x960Along with ‘Formation’ by Bey, Rihanna’s ‘Work’ was a major hit and Adele’s piping hot ‘Hello’ lived at the top of the charts too.

While there’s been no Beyonce sighting yet. It’s rumored that she and her bump will hit the stage tonight.  Beyonce’s dancers allegedly were photographed at yesterday’s rehearsals, but you never know in this business. Let’s not forget the promoted Beyonce performance by another network years ago that turned out to be streamed.

Jay Z was seen at Roc Nation’s pre-grammy bash laughing it up with Rih Rih, Diddy and Mr. Jonas, but Bey is still out of sight. We’ll see tonight!

Kanye West Ends Rant Filled Week With Words For Beyonce, Hillary Clinton and Mark Zuckerberg

(SL) – Wellll….here we go again. Now, before we get to another set of fans left disappointed after the wannabe Pablo ended another show early in Sacramento, let’s get to what preceded his exit.

Kanye West was just 10 minutes into his show when he left the stage at the Golden 1 center. Yes. Two songs in and the rapper was ghost. But not before he ranted about Beyonce, Hillary Clinton, Mark Zuckerberg and his standard target Taylor Swift. AND we won’t even talk about how he showed up and hour and a half late.

The two songs (because you’re thinking maybe he was on his Michael Jackson or Prince ish and felt like he could rock his biggest hits and call it a day, come back say sike and have a 2 hour encore) No. He played the same song twice and during round two stopped to take aim at Beyonce over a rumor he heard about her refusing to perform at the MTV Awards unless she won video of the year over him and ‘Hotline Bling’. What is it with Kanye and video of the year??

3a929bd700000578-3953976-image-a-39_1479627994666It didn’t end there though. He then  said, “In my opinion – now don’t go dissing Beyonce, she’s great. Taylor Swift is great. We are all great people. But sometimes we be playing the politics too much and forget who we are – just to win, ‘F**k winning, f**k looking cool, f**k being cool.’

Saint Pablo was then heard pleading for  Jay-Z to call him to talk things out. ‘Jay Z, I know you got killas. Please don’t send them at my head. Just call me—talk to me like I man,’ he said.

Saturday’s incident comes after the hip-hop star Kanye shocked a crowd in San Jose by revealing his support for US President-elect Donald Trump while suggesting he still plans to challenge him in 2020.

Is anyone seriously concerned yet or will he have to start clucking like a chicken before we’re convinced that he’s left the coop.

Here’s Why Mathew Knowles So Confidently Challenged Kelly Rowland To Put Her Girl Group Up Against BLUSHHH Music

(SL) – Mathew Knowles is the master when it comes to creating girl groups.  After all, he is the brain behind the international phenomenon that is Beyonce’. Now, Knowles is back with a new trio called BLUSHHH Music and at first glance you recognize the recipe and at first listen you recognize the sound…the sound of greatness and what could be the next female group to top the charts and possibly the world.

The comparisons will naturally come, but you’ll find out during my sit down with BLUSHHH that it’s not something that they’re worried about..they embrace the Destiny’s Child references and say Beyonce and the crew have been very supportive of what they’re trying to do. BLUSHHH Music is currently on their first  promo tour and we had the exclusive opportunity to follow them around for their first official performance.

From Hot 107.9’s Birthday Bash Weekend, to Lennox Mall and getting no love from Sephora, we’re catching the humble beginnings of what could be the world’s next big girl group….So join us as we take you through the Rise of BLUSHHH Music!

 

 

Did Rachel Roy Out Herself As Jay Z’s Mistress

(SL) – Where is Solange? 😉 If you ever wondered why Beyonce stood back calm and collected while Solange unleashed a barrage of kicks and punches at Jay Z in that notorious elevator scene after the Met Gala, some of the megastar’s new album “Lemonade” might give some insight.

solange-600After the HBO special, Beyonce released the album on Jay Z’s streaming service Tidal Saturday night and there is a strong theme of adultery and numerous references to an unfaithful partner.

Even though the album sounds intensely personal, there was no proof that she was talking about her marriage to Jay z directly until Rachel Roy decided to be bold and reference the lyrics, “He better call Becky with the good hair.”337BA71C00000578-3556292-image-m-4_1461511353661Sorry, the 4th track on Lemonade hits back at a guy for his lame attempt at an apology after he cheated on his lady.  “Middle fingers up, put them hands high,” Beyonce sings. “Wave it in his face, tell him, boy, bye. Tell him, boy, bye, middle fingers up. I ain’t thinking ‘bout you.” So good. The song ends by calling out the girl he cheated with: “He better call Becky with the good hair.”

Hours after the special aired Roy took to her Instagram page and made the below post.

337EE33800000578-3556292-image-a-2_1461511074512
Now of course one could argue that Rachel’s post had nothing to do with Beyonce’s lyrics but she’s never mentioned ‘good hair’ ever before in or during her online existence. EVER. You also have to remember that when it was first reported that the fight in the elevator was about Rachel’s indiscretions with Sean Carter, she messily quoted lyrics from one of Jay Z’s songs on her twitter page.  And most tellingly, why delete the comment and make your IG page private after Beyonce’s fans gave you the response you were looking for?  I know she didn’t think that people were too busy sipping lemonade to notice.

Some of Beyonce’s lyrics on the Lemonade album:

Needless to say the ‘Beyhive’ wasted no time in dragging Rachel to possible extinction.  I don’t know what she was thinking, but  alluding to a possible affair with the world’s most beloved female singer’s husband is not a smart chess move. Not only was Rachel’s Wikipedia profile hacked, she received so much negative backlash that she made her IG private.  If she could still keep verification on twitter privately, she probably would’ve closed that page off to the public as well.

The Beyhive Attacks Rachel Roy For Taunting Beyonce:

Not sure what her point was/is but she should probably tape her twitter fingers together and call it a wrap. Seeming to find the error of her ways, Rachel then tried to post a message on twitter about respecting marriage, love, families and strength and closed the tweet by saying bullying shouldn’t be tolerated. Huh? Time for Rachel Roy to have several seats and hope that she still has a job tomorrow morning and that her clothing line doesn’t fold from the subsequent scrutiny of not only her ignorance but the glorification of potentially being someone’s sidepiece.
