Hello to all the guys, girls and pop addicts on the VSU campus. This week I’m serving hot chamomile tea. Let’s get in to it.
Kylie Jenner is pregnant. Well, maybe. Reportedly, Travis Scott, the singer/songwriter is the soon-to-be father. Most of the general public has mixed feelings about the news. Personally, I think it was a planned accident. This year marks the 10-year anniversary of the “hit” reality television show, “Keeping up with the Kardashians.”
This appears to be one big publicity stunt to boost ratings. Some twitter users said “The Devil is working hard, but Kris Jenner is working even harder.” I chuckled, but then realized the pregnancy release was probably planned. Recently, the Jenners/Kardashians haven’t been getting a lot attention. For example, Rihanna launched Fenty Beauty, Cardi released her hit song “Bodak Yellow” and Taylor Swift returned from her music hiatus. To add even more gossip in the mix, Khloe Kardashian is now reportedly pregnant. Kylie may be feeling slighted. Don’t get me wrong; I don’t know if she’s pregnant for sure, but if she is, why did it take so long for her pregnancy news to come out? Is Travis Scott the baby’s father or is it her ex’s, Tyga? Will the world ever know? I’ll fill you in when I get the tea.
A big congratulations to Cardi B! Cardi B has been awarded the #1 spot on the Billboard Hot 100 for a solo rap song. A female rapper hasn’t achieved this feat since 1998 when Lauryn Hill released “Doo Wop.” She has embraced a lot of criticism from her haters.
One of the haters in particular would be Ms. Azealia Banks. Banks took to her Instagram to call Cardi B, “the poor man’s” Nicki Minaj. If that wasn’t shade, then I don’t know what is. The thing with Ms. Banks is she can’t seem to get her problematic, struggling career off the ground, yet she has so much to say about others and their flourishing ones. Earn your spot and learn your place, Ms. Banks. She used to preach about how the rap industry wasn’t inclusive to all female rappers, yet she’s not even being inclusive herself. Why not congratulate Cardi B and pat her on the back? Why so messy? Anyway…
Sophia Vergara is television’s highest paid actress on Forbes list for 2017, earning $41.5 million after taxes. Vergara has won this title six years in total. Her role on “Modern Family” accounts for only a quarter of her income, while the rest comes from licensing and endorsement deals. Congratulations to her and may she stay fabulous.
The 16 time Emmy winning TV show, “Will & Grace,” will be returning to NBC this fall on Sept. 28. After 11 years, Will, Grace, Jack and Karen will make their grand reentrance by providing “belly laughs” as Debra Messing described it.
Thanks to their clip from the 2016 presidential election, the group got the chance for a reboot. I can’t wait for this event because it was one of my favorite shows growing up. It brought things like homosexuality, ageism and relationship issues to the forefront of television at that time. What made this show so timeless was the fact that it brought up touchy issues but made people laugh about the issues as well. The show started the trend of normalizing topics that were scandalous and tried to put a positive, healthy spin on the topics. Hopefully, that same magic will happen for the show now, considering the show is being renewed over a decade later. I will be watching, will you?
That’s all I have for this week! Come back weekly to get your tea cup filled with more scolding pop culture tea.
