Offset Crashes

Cardi’s Set

On Stage

by Cheryl Lakes

Offset Crashes Cardi B’s Set:  Offset offered a very public olive branch to Cardi B over the weekend — and she was less than thrilled.  At Los Angeles’ Rolling Loud festival at the Banc of California Stadium, which Cardi headlined on Saturday, a fan captured a video of Offset crashing Cardi’s set to beg her to reignite their romance.  In the video taken by Twitter user Emily Nunez, stagehands rolled out three boxes that spelled out “Take Me Back Cardi” in what appeared to be flowers. Then Offset appeared, a bouquet of white flowers in hand, to try to win her back. Into the microphone, Offset proclaimed that “in front of the world, I love you.”  Cardi, 26, seemed irritated as she responded to Offset at length — off of the microphone. At one point during the testy exchange, the lights went dim onstage. After Cardi seemingly made her point, Offset walked off the stage, and stagehands wheeled off his tribute to her.  “Rolling Loud is proud to provide the platform for a queen like Cardi B to absolutely slay her performance. Despite the stunt, she performed hit after hit and electrified the crowd with her talent, energy, choreography, and set design. Cardi B proved herself as a top tier headliner last night, and that should be the story. We look forward to continued business with her in the future.”

The Whole Kanye, Drake And Now Kim Drama:  After Kanye West went on a Twitter tirade against Drake, his wife came forward to defend him and their family against any alleged threats Drake made against them.“@drake Never threaten my husband or our family. He paved the way for there to be a Drake,” Kim tweeted on Friday. “My husband is the most brilliant person, the most genius person that I know. He has broken so many boundaries, everything from music, stage design, fashion and culture and will continue to change the world.”  Kanye has had a year full of controversies, including calling slavery a “choice,” but his wife rarely steps in or comments on his statements at those moments.  It’s unclear what exactly Drake threatened, but West tweeted that Drake called him with a threat. He added, “So drake if anything happens to me or anyone from my family you are the first suspect— So cut the tough talk.”

Actor Djimon Hounsou Showed Up At His Movie Premiere With Blended Family And New Girlfriend: He attended the ‘Aquaman’ movie premiere in Hollywood this week with some very special guests. BOSSIP reports…Djimon has a significant role in the movie, playing The Fisherman King and he brought out his blended bunch to see him shine.  Djimon’s son with Kimora Lee, Kenzo Lee and his little brother Wolfe Lee was there and all smiles. Dijimon and Kimora Lee split back in 2012.  Since then, Kimora has remarried Tim Leissner (2013) and now Dijimon has seemingly found love.

Social Media Accuses Pastor John Gray Of Being Shady:  South Carolina pastor and reality star John Gray has found himself in some controversy once again.  BOSSIP reports…This week, the leader of Relentless Church in Greenville posted a video of him giving his wife, Aventer Gray, a Lamborghini SUV for their eight-year wedding anniversary. The car cashes in at around $200,000, according to Fortune.  Social media naturally had a lot to say. Some users praised the prosperous pastor for his gesture to his wife. However, others criticized Gray calling him untrustworthy and saying he used money from his “gullible followers” to pay for the car.  Gray clapped back at the congregation in a Facebook video on Thursday, according to People. “It wasn’t a pastor that bought the car — it was a husband that bought the car. Get that in your spirit,” Gray said. “I’m a husband first. Don’t confuse what I do with who I am. What I do is I pastor God’s people. Who I am is a husband and a father, and I’ll do anything to honor them.   “I have been patient my whole life for this moment. I’m 45. I’m supposed to wait till I’m 70 to live my best life? And my best life is seeing my wife happy.” Gray said his business ventures contributed to the fundz, including a second book deal and the upcoming season of his reality show The Book of John Gray on OWN. Gray also got emotional when he recalled seeing the car for the first time at a presentation for the vehicle at a hotel.

Prada Faces Backlash Over Racist Key Chains:  Prada, the Italian luxury fashion house, says it is removing a set of monkey-like figures from its stores and displays after facing criticism on social media that they featured racist imagery.  One of the trinkets is a monkey-like figure that has brown skin and large red lips and that appears to use “blackface imagery,” as pointed out in a public Facebook post from user Chinyere Ezie.  “Today after returning to NYC after a very emotional visit to the Smithsonian National Museum of African American History and Culture including an exhibit on blackface, I walked past Prada’s Soho storefront only to be confronted with the very same racist and denigrating #blackface imagery,” Ezie’s post reads.  The figure in question was on display throughout Prada’s store, including in the window display, on larger versions not available for purchase, and on leather accessories. The figure is known as “Otto-Toto” and is part of Prada’s “Pradamalia” collection, which is “a new family of mysterious tiny creatures that are one part biological, one part technological, all parts Prada,” according to the company’s website.  The keychain also comes in a yellow and green pattern.  A spokesperson for Prada said in a statement to Business Insider on Friday that it would be pulling the figures from stores and displays.

I saw my brother’s fiancee` in the arms of another man.  I want to tell him, but I’m being advised not to.

by Sarah Smart

Q.  I walked into a birthday party the other night and was shocked when I saw my brother’s fiancee sitting in the lap of another man and the embrace was most definitely intimate. They were kissing passionately in front of everyone. I left before she saw me. They are to be married next month and I want to tell my brother about the incident, but everyone says I should keep my mouth closed and stay out of it. He will find out soon enough.

The Dating Chronicles

The Theory

In her mind, Mindy had done all she could to get her co-worker Ben’s attention, but nothing had worked. Heretofore, she had always been adept at mixing subtlety with flirting and getting good results. She felt it was not a woman’s place to be the aggressor on the “love field” but certainly she could pave the way by letting a guy know through certain innuendo that she was interested.

Why The

Phone Calls

Stop…Maybe

by Theo McNee

Carla was perplexed.  She hadn’t heard from Bill in a week, and she couldn’t reach him on the phone.  The last time they were together, he’d received an emergency phone call and had to leave from her best friend’s birthday party.  They had been together for four weeks and they seemed to be getting along well.  She wracked her brain trying to figure out why he suddenly disappeared, but she couldn’t think of anything that made sense.

The Visit

When He Comes

Over For The First Time…

by Lisa Cregier

When that special guy comes over for the first time, the excitement level is at a high pitch.  You want to make a good impression.  He is about to learn at a mere glance who you really are and you hope he approves.  The living room, which you usually take for granted has been transformed magazine style into the most fabulous room in the galaxy.  Glasses are chilled.  The wine is imported from across the water… Paintings, pictures and other odd objects are straightened, changed or hidden.  Personal items, which have the potential of revealing too much, too soon, are thrown into an off-limits area.

POPPING THE

QUESTION

Some Guys Go All Out

In spite of all the forlorn statistics on finding a mate in today’s world of “obvious” shortages, Marriage continues to thrive among today’s singles. Many men are far more creative when popping the question, then we women would imagine. More and more men are seeking ways to enhance this special event and are going all out to succeed in making it memorable.  SHERRY: “When Tom proposed, it was the last thing I would have expected, at the time it happened, because we were in the middle of an argument.   He had invited me to the movies and we were walking down the street towards the theater, when I spotted my name on the marquee.  MORE
