Kendrick Lamar kicked the party off "Alrite."
Last year's host of the BET Awards was Chris Rock and we can only imagine attempting to follow him would be pretty rough. Nevertheless, this year's hosts Tracey Ellis Ross and Anthony Anderson really did try their best and well, better luck next year boo's. (Although the Sam Smith bit was hilarious.) Right off the bat we have to mention that they finally got it right airing it live for both the east and west coast so bravo on that BET. OK, now let's get down to the dirt.

Taylor Swift Takes a Big Bite Out of Apple

OMG little me did all of that? What? Really? Me?
Holy shite y'all! The power of words prevailed and you'll never believe from who. Why it's little Taylor "oh my goodness gracious I always rock a surprised face" Swift! We're truly surprised and tremendously pleased about the power of this pop tart's pull with her open letter crusade to get Apple (Yeah, that Apple.) to pay artists during free trials. And to cut to the chase here, Swift was victorious. (Insert Taylor Swift "surprised face" here.) The fuck? This is a game changer and it was Taylor Swift who did that? Hmmm....wonder what else she can do? Maybe end global warming? Get J-Lo to stop singing? Bring the TV show Dexter back? Listen, you're not alone with a mind racing with questions. In the midst of an internet explosion, Twitter called upon her angelic penmanship power late last night and we grabbed a few ideas they had in case you wanted to get on board.

Eight Awkward Televised Collaborations

Categories: LOL, lists

Yes, that's William Shatner performing... on Conan.
One popular musician is good; two or more popular musicians are even better. Ratings increase; audiences grow; viewers begin to accept new musical genres--well, that's what happened when Run DMC performed with Aerosmith in 1986. But not every collaboration is a success; in fact, most musical collaborations are a little awkward. Here are eight televised collaborations that made us cringe.

Vincent Valentine Just Wants a Little Social Interaction

Categories: LOL

I never want to pretend to be anyone else.
There's plenty to do in Las Vegas as a sightseer but when you actually live in good ol' Sin City, the need to find ways to amuse yourself amongst the excessive tourists is key. Vincent Valentine figured out the perfect plan to do just that by having some incredibly awkward conversations with those that invade his fair city. Preferring to call it "social interaction" rather than "pranking," Valentine has had a successful year videoing his encounters leading him straight into viral popularity. And in 2015, isn't that what it's all about?

In addition to the videos, Valentine is also a rapper, so he definitely has no qualms about putting himself out there. But we wanted to find out more. And we did when we talked to him about his music, his process when it comes to chatting about absolute absurdity with complete strangers, and the good and bad that has come from hitting up unsuspecting people in public places.

Have a Hip-Hop Question for Rachel Dolezal? Just #AskRachel!

Categories: LOL, Twitter, music

Ohhh Rachel, Rachel, Rachel...
Everyone loves an outrageous news story. These stories give people a chance to join in with all walks of life online to voice their opinion and connect with others in their "outrage." Case in point, Rachel Dolezal. The revelation that Dolezal, the NAACP Spokane Washington Branch President, has been posing as a black woman while speaking on behalf of black people sparked plenty of outrage across the country. Then ironically (not really), the tweets flying around on this "taboo" topic went from "how dare she" to "let's ask her ridiculous questions." These questions soon turned into inquiring about "urban" song lyrics and at that point, we were all in.

What in the entire universe of WTF?
Hosted by Broadway darlings Kristin Chenoweth and Alan Cumming, the 69th (lol) annual Tony Awards went down "live" at Radio City Music Hall in New York City. Celebrating everything theatre, the stars were dressed to the nines as they settled in to watch awards get dished out in-between musical numbers aplenty.

Is Lil Mama's 'Sausage' Already the Song of the Summer?

Eggs, bacon, grits, sausage!
The times have certainly changed in more ways than one and when we look to new music videos, long gone are the days of turning on MTV for the freshest and hottest. Rapper Lil Mama knows what's up so when it came time to premiere her new video "Sausage," she went to WorldStarHipHop. Unfortunately (and fortunately) there are no knockout punches in the video but is the song itself a knockout? Well...

Funniest Tweets from the 2015 Billboard Music Awards

"Live" from Las Vegas and co-hosted by Ludacris and one of our favorite people in life and on Twitter (fall back haters) Chrissy Teigen, the 2015 Billboard Music Awards were once again shown to the west coast THREE HOURS LATE. And no, we won't stop bitching about it until we are on an even playing field with the east coast. Work it out. OK, venting aside. Missing the Mad Men finale meant that you got to see David Lee Roth's happy face along with Van Halen, Taylor Swift winning a shit ton of awards and "stepping out" with Calvin Harris, Mariah Carey probably regretting not jumping on the lip-sync train, Kanye's over editing because ohhh what will Kanye say next, ohhhh he's sooooo scary, and a Simple Minds/Breakfast Club tribute to make your parents (and some of us) feel like they belong.

Should Waka Flocka Flame Really Be Our Next President?

Categories: LOL, Rap, politics

"I'm dead ass running for president in 2016."
The Internet has been on fire with news that rapper Waka Flocka Flame wants to run for president. He actually said it back in 2012 on Twitter and even when we caught his official statement on April 20th (aka 420) that included, "The first thing that I'll do when I get in office is legalize marijuana," well, we still had a hard time believing it was true. Upon hearing from Rolling Stone (a reputable source, no?) that Waka's decision to launch a presidential campaign is in fact reality, we started thinking and questioning, how stoned was he when he thought this up? Is this "campaign" making a mockery out of the race for presidency? Will 'Murica take this satire in stride? How hard is it for a celebrity to get 5,000 signatures anyway?

Twitter Talked Mad Shit On You, Coachella...Again

Like it or not, on-line chatter can't stop won't stop and when there's a big (ish) event, whether it be on TV or live in our hood, social media is having their uncensored say. When it came to Coachella 2015 however, we noticed on the 2nd weekend, the topical tweets slowed down substantially. We can only chalk that up to having a severe case of "we never really cared about it anyway but wanted to hit a trending topic just in case" syndrome. We totally comprende.
