You’re Fyred!

Welp, after being gone a month, I guess it’s time for a return. Let’s get it!

Hot Mess #1: Ja Rule for planning the worst music festival in the history of festivals

93.5 KDAY's Krush Groove 2017

By now, I’m sure everyone has heard about the disastrous Fyre Festival that took place over the weekend. For anyone still in the dark, the Fyre Festival was marketed as a luxurious getaway on a beautiful island with A-list models and musicians. Though festival tickets sold for thousands of dollars, the conditions of the island, accommodations, and food were utterly third-world.

Exhibit A: The food

cheese sandwich

Exhibit B: The accommodations

Yikes….

Now, a part of me wants to feel sorry for Ja Rule and his business partner/co-organizer, Billy McFarland, but it’s kind of hard to be sympathetic when you read stories about the situation.

Billy McFarland

Apparently, logistical planning for the festival wasn’t even in full swing 3 months ago…Like, how can you market a huge festival before even checking off the basics?? Not to mention, why would you choose a location that lacked the infrastructure to support your attendees, especially for your very first event???

Let me just say that I know a couple of people who used to work for Fyre Inc., and even they knew the company was trash. Fortunately, they were able to jump ship before this fiasco.

Anyways, I hope Ja Rule and McFarland are having fun with the $100 million lawsuit that was just sent their way.

Words of wisdom for Mr. Rule, don’t trust an inexperienced millennial with your business. As bold and confident as we millennials are, we don’t have all the answers and tend to overcommit.

Side note: 50 Cent is so petty. He immediately took to social media to troll his rapper rival about the entire situation.

Hot Mess #2: Fox News for just being a scandalous, sexually harassing mess

Bill O'Reilly

For years, Fox News has been under scrutiny for allowing alarming misogynistic and sexist behavior from male anchors and staff. However, with big players like Bill O’Reilly having huge ratings and backing from advertisers, the network did little to change their disturbing culture.

Luckily, advertisers are starting to come to their senses. Thanks to them pull commercials, Bill O’Reilly has FINALLY been kicked to the curb along with co-president, Bill Shine. In addition, Fox anchor, Jesse Watters, was also told to “take a vacation” after making suggestive comments about Ivanka Trump holding a microphone.

Give me a break, Jesse….. #hotmess

Hot Mess #3: Donald Trump for being what else, but a mess

tenor-1.gif

It just wouldn’t be right if I didn’t add this one to the list. Honestly, I thought that he would escape being on here this week, but that was until he admitted in a Reuter’s interview that being president was harder than he thought it would be….

Trump says he thought being president would be easier than his old life

Seriously??

I’m literally at a lost for words….Not only do I now have to worry about being bombed by North Korea, but I also have to continuously worry about whether or not this nutjob man is fit enough to be president. Of course, I already know that he’s not fit or qualified for the role, but in an effort to not be mad at half of the country, I’m going to root for this man’s success.

p.s. Earlier today, it was reported that the Trump administration was planning to discontinue Michelle Obama’s Let Girls Learn program, a female education initiative. After major backlash, however, the White House is claiming that the announcement was not true and due to “internal confusion.”

WH denies it’s ending Michelle Obama’s ‘Let Girls Learn’ program

I understand that Trump and his people want to wipe away all things Obama, but some things just can’t be about politics. If a program is doing good work, who cares who founded it, just let it rock.

Oh, and in case you missed it, Trump recently asked “Why was there a Civil War?” Just Google it because I’m honestly too tired for this story as well.

With that said, I wonder what Donald Trump thinks of Jesse Watters’ comments about his daughter…

Side note: If you haven’t already, please watch Hasan Minhaj’s speech at the White House Correspondents Dinner. Hasan was funny, straight to the point, and fearless in his delivery.

Whether you’re a Trump supporter or not, it’s hard to deny a comedian who speaks the truth.

Karma Is A Real….

It’s that time again! Time to discuss our top hot messes.

Let’s get it!

Hot Mess #1: Donald Trump for having bad karma

c_scale,fl_progressive,q_80,w_800.jpg

Last week marked a rather embarrassing moment for the Trump administration as they failed to repeal Obama’s Affordable Care Act. Not only did they fail to overhaul the ACA, but they also failed to do it with a Republican Congress. “Trumpcare” lacked so much support from Republicans that Speaker of the House, Paul Ryan, had to pull the bill before even bringing it to the House floor for formal consideration. #Yikes

In Major Defeat for Trump, Push to Repeal Health Law Fails

Personally, I think that this hot messness should serve as a reminder to everyone that karma is real. After falsely accusing Obama of wiretapping Trump Tower and arguing various other “alternative facts,” Trump finally received the slap in the face he’s deserved for a long time.

Hot Mess #2: Paul Ryan for just being a mess

Paul Ryan

Deep down, we all knew that Paul Ryan was incompetent. I mean, the man couldn’t even convince us that he respected Trump after months of refusing to back him as the Republican nominee.

Now, after the Trumpcare debacle, it’s evident that Paul Ryan can’t even convince his Republican colleagues to vote in his favor.

Paul Ryan: House Republicans will continue their push for health-care reform this year

What a joke….

Honestly, Paul Ryan is just trash. I hate calling people that, but when you have someone like Ryan who chooses to blatantly lie to the American public, trash becomes the most appropriate descriptor to use.

afcde1c78fdddab4a294e29ae06e2a0b.gif

p.s. I wish politicians were as sweet and innocent as these animated penguins. The world would be a much better place. Ah, well.

Double p.s. Word on the street is Paul Ryan even got on his knees to beg GOP reps to vote in favor of Trumpcare. This may be more embarrassing than losing the vote.

Hot Mess #3: Tomi Lahren for getting fired

6362004614741723271295072304_6360372470483411762066006691_maxresdefault

As previously reported, Tomi Lahren, host of Tomi on The Blaze was suspended from her conservative-leaning show after supporting abortion rights on The View. Now, it looks like The Blaze has made Tomi’s suspension permanent. Ouch…

Tomi Lahren ‘banned permanently’ from The Blaze: report

Under normal circumstances, I would feel bad for anyone who has lost their job. However, Tomi, who has been so incredibly insensitive to minority rights (including women’s rights) in 2016, deserves it.

giphy

Yup, Karma is definitely a….pain.

Side note: We all know Tomi will ultimately be fine. She’s a young blonde white woman with 4 million followers on Facebook. Her worst case scenario is marrying someone with money. #Letsbehonest

Big Fat Liar

Happy Monday! Usually, I have a stank attitude on Mondays because they can literally be the absolute worst. However, I started my new job and already love it.

Let’s get it!

Hot Mess #1: Donald Trump for being a BIG FAT LIAR

donald-trump-jan-press-conference-2017-billboard-1548.jpg

Unless you’ve been avoiding all things Trump (BTWs, I don’t blame you if you have), then you probably know that he accused President Obama of wiretapping Trump Tower during the 2016 election several weeks ago. Not only were Trump’s accusations completely unfounded, but they were also made on Twitter for the entire world to see. Although Obama appeared to be #unbothered by Trump’s childish antics, the media had a field day.

Now, after weeks of waiting for evidence of wiretapping to emerge, Americans have learned that there is no information to support Trump’s claims. Surprise…Surprise….

giphy.gif

Although it’s clear that Trump straight up lied on Twitter, President Obama will probably never receive an official apology from the White House. BUT, at this point, does Obama even care?  I mean, it’s quite clear who is currently winning at life and it’s definitely not the man who bathes in Cheeto dust…Not to mention, it sounds like Trump’s little Russia problem is only heating up….

Trump Russia claims: FBI’s Comey confirms investigation of election ‘interference’

Muahahaha!

p.s. This little girl is the only one who understands my excitement on a regular basis. She is my favorite gif evaaar. lol

Okay, moving on…

Hot Mess #2: Tomi Lahren for being a fraud

tomilahren-998x722

I usually try to avoid talking about Tomi because I think she’s an actual hot mess who doesn’t need any additional publicity for her television show. However, this story was just too good not to share.

Last Friday, Tomi appeared on ABC’s The View where she claimed to be “pro-choice.” The announcement came as a complete shock to Tomi’s ultraconservative supporters and network, TheBlaze. Tomi, who has openly denounced abortion in the past, told The View co-hosts that she cannot support having a limited government while also advocating for the government to interfere with a woman’s right to choose.

Personally, Tomi sounds like a huge flip-flopper to me. Even though everyone has a right to change their opinions, something just doesn’t add up. I think Tomi has always believed in abortions and other more liberal ideas, but for whatever reason, only decided to “keep it real” last week.

#Amess

636037244772582765617764979_Cbcv47LUkAAW3-D

Also, it was announced today that TheBlaze temporarily suspended homegirl’s show, and I’m SO happy. All Tomi does is spew divisive rhetoric for ratings and that’s the last thing we need in today’s America.

Hot Mess #3: Anyone who laughs at Kim Kardashian’s robbery

03-kim-kardashian-robbery.w710.h473.2x

Yesterday, E! aired a new episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians, which focused on Kim’s Paris robbery last fall.

Throughout the episode, viewers watch as the Kardashian family enjoys the glitz and glam of Paris fashion week before Kim’s horrific ordeal on October 3rd. During her interviews, Kim admits to thinking that her attackers were going to both rape and kill her. She then goes on to explain how she worried about her sister, Kourtney, having a “normal life” after seeing her dead body…

Though it’s now clear that Kim’s robbery was not a publicity stunt, there are still a number of people who refuse to show any compassion towards the reality star. For me, this is truly disturbing. Whether you love or hate the Kardashian family, Kim’s robbery is no laughing matter and should be taken seriously. After all, it could happen to any one of us.

Anyways, on a more positive note…

Cat Meme Monday

Today has honestly just been exhausting. From Donald Trump accusing Obama of wiretapping him to Ben Carson comparing slavery to immigration, I have just had it with everyone this week. Not to mention, there’s not enough interesting drama happening in La La Land to make up for the disastrous week by politicians.

Therefore, I’m officially declaring today Cat Meme Monday. Yes, Cat Meme Monday. Enjoy while I go to bed and look out for Hollywood’s messiest treasures next week…lol

The Oscars Edition

It was definitely an eventful Sunday night. Just when I thought the Academy Awards were going to give me almost nothing to talk about, the biggest fail in the history of the awards show happened.

Let’s get it!

Hot Mess #1: The Academy Awards for ruining Moonlight‘s moment

57358009.jpg

Whether you watched the Academy Awards a.k.a. the Oscars last night or not, you probably heard about the chaos that ensued on stage after La La Land was accidentally announced as the winner of Best Picture. The worst part was that producers did not correct the error until several thank you speeches later. Yikes…

So what happened?

giphy-2.gif

Well, when Warren Beatty opened the envelope, he gave the audience the most confused expression ever. He saw that the card read “Emma Stone – La La Land.” Seeing as though Emma Stone cannot be a Best Picture winner, it should have been obvious that the name on the card did not make sense….

Instead of alerting producers that he had the wrong card, however, Beatty decided to hand it over to his co-presenter, Faye Dunaway. Thinking nothing of Beatty’s confusion, Faye went on to read “La La Land” to the audience. #FAIL

landscape-1488172884-source.gif

Luckily for us, we had one of the gracious La La Land producers correct the error after giving his own acceptance speech for an award that he did not win.

Honestly, this was just such a fail on SO many levels. Firstly, how did Warren Beatty get the wrong card? Secondly, why did it take producers so long to fix the problem? Lastly, why did Moonlight‘s shining moment have to be tarnished???

p047xqbh.jpg

The good news is the Academy clearly took last year’s hashtag, #OscarsSoWhite, to heart and created an awards show that was more inclusive of diverse talent and thought. It was also nice to see Moonlight take home the gold. Moonlight is not only a Black independent film, but it’s also a movie that centers on a member of the LGBTQ community. And, despite the debacle overshadowing its win in the moment, Moonlight will go down in history as one of the best films of all time.

Congrats to director and writer, Barry Jenkins, and the entire cast and crew!

p.s. Shout out to Moonlight‘s Janelle Monae for her red carpet look.

89th Annual Academy Awards - Arrivals

She’s been killing it all awards season long, but this dress definitely stole the show. #Fire

Moving on….

Hot Mess # 2: Jimmy Kimmel for not recovering quickly after the Best Picture mix-up

08-jordan-horowitz-beatty-jimmy-kimmel--e2d71b5c-8adf-48c7-a413-26be7072b782.jpg

As bad as it was to watch Warren Beatty fumble around the Oscar stage last night, it was almost worse watching Jimmy Kimmel. Instead of really poking fun of the Best Picture situation, Jimmy looked incredibly uncomfortable saying “Personally, I blame Steve Harvey for this.”

For those who don’t remember, Steve Harvey accidentally announced the wrong winner of the Miss Universe pageant back in 2015.

giphy.gif

Double yikes….

Although Jimmy Kimmel’s “joke” was spot on, you could tell in his voice that he was absolutely mortified the entire time.

Personally, I just really wanted someone to sing the words “City of Fails” into the mic using the melody from La La Land‘s “City of Stars.” It would’ve been peeeeerfeeeect!

Okay, maybe it just would’ve been perfect for me….lol

Hot Mess #3: Whoever told every single man at the Oscars to wear a navy jacket

Like, look at this….

Trust me, I could go on and on with the blue tuxedo pics from last night, but I’m already bored…lol

Anyways, I vote The Rock for best dressed mostly because he reminded me of the following clip from Coming To America

If you don’t know, then you better go find out. 😉

Anyways, the last thing I’m going to say is that I want to be friends with Gary From Chicago.

The Grammys Edition

With everything that’s been going on in the “real” news, it’s nice to talk only about entertainment for once. This will be short and sweet.

Let’s get it!

Hot Mess #1: The Grammys for being an absolute snoozefest

grammys-650px

I don’t know what’s been going on with the Grammys, but they have become progressively more boring over the years. Even though we had Katy Perry, Beyonce, and Metallica all in the same room, I was still feeling underwhelmed by the end. Not to mention, I’m pretty sure my friend turned the channel at one point to watch Homeland instead….

giphy-1.gif

With that said, I have to give Bruno Mars a serious shoutout. He destroyed both of his performances last night.

rs_1024x759-170212182306-1024-bruna-mars-grammy-award.jpg

Bruno first sang his single “That’s What I Like,” showing that music doesn’t have to be super upbeat to be electric. With the help of his manband, Bruno stole the show with a lot of smooth moves and harmonies. #suchapro

p.s. Bruno Mars and The Time gave us the best Prince tribute to date. After a horrible botching of “Nothing Compares To You” by Madonna and a much too loud “Purple Rain” by Jennifer Hudson (unpopular opinion, I know), Prince finally got the tribute he deserved last night. It was fun, funky, and full of life. Not to mention, Bruno’s purple suit was on point as well as his eyeliner. 😉

giphy.gif

Hot Mess #2: Whoever didn’t vote for Lemonade?
beyonce-lemonade-1200x1294.jpg

Although the Grammys were a complete bore, I did continue to watch for the sole purpose of seeing whether or not Beyonce would take home the most coveted prizes of the night, Record of the Year and Album of the Year.

When Adele “shocked” everyone and won both awards, I was honestly not that surprised. This year, it seemed like every artist from Justin Bieber to Rihanna decided to release their best bodies of work to give Beyonce a real run for her money. Not to mention, there was also tremendous hype around Adele’s album, 25, as well.

a9959c17c8260650136fdc4a7d8bb218

Now, I know that some believe Lemonade to be the only rightful winner of the evening. However, I personally think that Beyonce losing Album of the Year in 2015 was a much bigger upset than last night. At least yesterday, an album won that people actually listened to (no shade to Beck)….

And, for those of you crying racism, please just stop. I don’t think Beyonce’s loss has anything to do with racism. I agree with several critics who believe her loss to be a direct result of the splitting of votes. If you put Beyonce, Justin Bieber, and Drake in the same category, then eventually their votes are going to start canceling one another out. It is what it is.

Grammys 2017: Why Adele beat Beyoncé for Album of the Year

p.s. Even though I don’t necessarily believe the Grammys to be racist, I do think that they have a little diversity issue on their hands. Perhaps the Recording Academy is a little too traditionalist (a nice word for white and old) for the times.

Anyways, a huge congratulations to Adele. After a rough performance paying tribute to George Michaels, she was able to end her evening with a gracious win.

giphy-2.gif

Adele’s Full Acceptance Speech

Side note: I love the way Adele made her entire acceptance speech about Beyonce and her love for Lemonade. It shows the importance of artists supporting one another and showing respect to their peers.

Side note #2: We need to talk about Keith Urban. I know he wasn’t nominated for major awards last night, but he should’ve been.

Keith-Urban-Ripcord.jpg

If you haven’t listened to Ripcord, I strongly encourage you to do so. Ripcord was really my Album of the Year. It snuck up on me during a random iTunes search and I immediately fell in love. Such a good example of just how much good music is out there right now…

Check out Keith’s Grammy performance here –> Keith Urban Fighter

#LooooveIt

Also, random shoutout to Rihanna and her flask last night. Homegirl knew that she wasn’t going to win anything, so she came to just enjoy the party.

Shut Up and Sit Down

Another week, another Monday of messes. Let’s get it!

Hot mess #1: Azealia Banks for just being a complete mess.

azealia62433.jpg

I know not everyone is familiar with Azealia Banks, so let me break her down for you. Banks is a “rapper, singer-songwriter,” who finds more time attacking celebrities on Twitter (she’s now banned) than perfecting her craft. Although Banks is talented, her repeated antics on social media make her a laughingstock in entertainment.

In response to an anti-Trump post by Rihanna over the weekend, Banks told Rihanna and other celebrities to “shut up and sit down.”

rihanna-azealia-banks.jpg

Why Azealia thought she could come for Rihanna is beyond me. Not only can Rihanna serve up one shady clap-back, but she can also just win an argument simply for just being Rihanna…

Rihanna, Azealia Banks Feud

Unfortunately, it looks like this story will need a couple more days to play out in the press. Let’s just hope that Azealia’s behavior doesn’t result in another social media ban.

Hot Mess #2: Donald Trump for creating more global chaos.

nbc-fires-donald-trump-after-he-calls-mexicans-rapists-and-drug-runners.jpg

After the Women’s March in D.C., I hoped that the voices of the people would be heard. Boy, was I wrong…

Last week, Trump passed another executive order (I’m starting to lose count of executive orders…) that prevents citizens from several Muslim countries from entering the U.S. for 90 days. The ban also prevents refugees from entering for 120 days.

Although Trump claims that the ban is not targeting Muslims, people can’t help but to notice the faith of the population that it affects most.

Now, I’m all for protecting the American people and making sure that we have quality immigration laws. However, I’m also for protecting American ideals and embracing people of all colors, cultures, and religions. Not to mention, I also want a president who does not base decisions off of his own personal business interests…

Muslim-majority countries where Donald Trump does business left untouched by travel ban

#AMess

p.s. One would think that Trump would be tired of people protesting. Like, isn’t it getting too loud for him?!

Sigh…

Hot Mess #3: Anyone who roots against Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.

prince-harry-727402.jpg

For months now, the public has gotten used to the idea of Prince Harry and Suits actress, Meghan Markle. Although the pair seem to be perfect for each other on paper, there are a number of people who are against a future marriage due to Markle’s background. Markle is mixed race (half white, half Black) from Los Angeles with some pretty controversial family members.

Although I can understand the snobby attitudes against Markle (history is history), I cannot support them. It’s 2017 and we should just let people be happy.

Therefore, in the words of Azealia, people can definitely shut up and sit down when it comes to this couple.

p.s. If there’s another charming prince out there looking for his wife, please come find me. I hate cooking and most cleaning, so I would be great with house staff. 🙂

Hot Mess #4: Winona Ryder for looking cray on stage.

winona-ryder-sag-awards-in-los-angeles-1-29-2017-1_thumbnail

I have been a fan of Winona Ryder since 1994’s Little Women when she played the lovable Jo. And, despite a rough patch in the early 2000s, Winona has steadily worked to regain her career. Now, she’s part of the hit Netflix show Stranger Things.

Although Winona has done a lot of things right this past year, her facial expressions at last night’s SAG Awards were just all wrong….

giphy.gif

While the cast of Stranger Things took home the award for best ensemble cast, Winona made some pretty crazy faces on stage, which immediately began trending on social media.

To be fair, this is how I feel every day now while watching the news….

I get you, Winona. I get you. lol

Side note: Shout out to all of the SAG winners last night, especially Denzel Washington and the cast of Hidden Figures, who surprised even themselves with their wins.

Can’t wait for the Oscars!
