Poor Drake. He just dropped his latest album, Scorpion, and on it he complains about why the web sucks.

Except for the part that made him rich and famous beyond his wildest dreams, of course…

The rest of it’s pretty bad though.

Intrusive and abusive fans who want to go beyond plunking down 20 bucks for a double album with 25 tracks and going on forever into 90-minute-land.

Or losing rap battles and earning the scorn of his peers.

Then there’s the fact he couldn’t keep it a secret that he’s a single dad with a son.

Now, that part is understandable. Why does the world need to know so much about his kid?

Those and many other questions are answered through lyrics and music on the new tracks. But, what other kind of venom is expected with an album called Scorpion?

Epic rants like this one get a bit tiresome to fans who don’t necessarily want to know about the negative influences in a star’s life. It’s more about the good things that happen to celebrities all the time. You know, like, the money?

Reviews of the album are good, but, most say it’s just too long.

And, there’s too much whining.

But, the one thing about Drake is he always gets to a kernel of truth, even if we have to dig deep through the husk to see it.

This time, it’s about a son he’s always denied he had:

Single father, I hate when I hear it
I used to challenge my parents on every album
Now I’m embarrassed to tell ‘em I ended up as a co-parent
Always promised the family unit
I wanted it to be different because I’ve been through it
But this is the harsh truth now”

It was actually good of him to try to protect his son from his fame. It’s usually the other way around.

So, it looks like Drake is the Old Man now.

What’s the title of his next album going to be?

How about: “Get off my effin’ lawn!…

Kylie Jenner has a GoFundMe page

Published

By

Soon after Forbes Magazine declared that Kylie Jenner is on track to become one of the world’s youngest self-made billionaire, comedian The Fat Jewish created a fundraiser campaign on GoFundMe for Jenner.

In the August issue titled America’s Women Billionaires, Forbes Magazine estimated Jenner’s net worth to be $900 million, taking into account her product endorsements, reality show deals including Keeping Up With TheKardashians, Kylie Cosmetics line and the Kendall + Kylie clothing line.

The Fat Jewish, also known as Josh Ostrovsky, created the “LET’S GET KYLIE JENNER TO A BILLION” GoFundMe page to help Jenner, 20, push her net worth to $1 billion.

“Kylie Jenner was on the cover of Forbes Magazine today for having a net worth of 900 million dollars, which is heartbreaking. I don’t want to live in a world where Kylie Jenner doesn’t have a billion dollars. WE MUST RAISE 100 MILLION DOLLARS TO HELP HER GET TO A BILLION, PLEASE SPREAD THE WORD, THIS IS EXTREMELY IMPORTANT. LINK IN BIO TO DONATE,” he detailed in the campaign mission statement.

Ostrovsky, 36, shared to his 10.5 million Instagram followers (@thefatjewish) the link to the GoFundMe campaign.

The campaign has so far raised $98 in donations by 19 people.

To further add controversy following Forbes Magazine labelling of Kylie Jenner as ‘self made billionaire,’ social media are in an uproar with the crowd funding effort.

Ostrovsky received criticism on his Instagram post such as:

katrinamaruani – I hope this is a joke… otherwise this is #embarrassing considering there’s children without food in this very moment”

natalieatsplants – That money better be donated to a worthy cause. Why should we care if she’s only made a million dollars. this is ridiculous.”

kris5556 – let’s donate to wash all that makeup off at the end of the day but we have half the us on food stamps please”

Forbes reported that Kylie Jenner’s $900 million net worth has superseded older sister Kim Kardashian West, valuing at a net worth of $350 million.

Since the launch of Kylie Cosmetics two years ago, Jenner has sold in excess of $630 million worth of makeup.

In light of the fundraising campaign, PageSix reported that donations will given away if the campaign does not reach the $100 million target.

Ostrovsky said, ‘All money will be donated to something awesome, like a charity that feeds people who don’t have food’.

Whitney Houston’s family “horrified” over sexual claims

Published

Whitney Houston’s family are shocked by sexual allegations documented in the new Whitney film.

Director Kevin Macdonald interviewed close family and friends to the late singer, exposing both Whitney Houston and her half brother, Gary Garland, were allegedly molested by their cousin, Dee Dee Warwick, during their childhood.

Whitney Houston’s mother, Cissy Houston, released a joint statement with niece Dionne Warwick to People, highlighting that the family first heard of such claims two days prior to the film’s release back in May at the Cannes Film Festival.

The statement revealed: “We cannot overstate the shock and horror we feel and the difficulty we have believing that my niece Dee Dee Warwick… molested two of my three children”.

“… The idea that [Dee Dee] would have molested my children is overwhelming and for us unfathomable… Neither I, Dionne, nor my son Michael… has ever heard these allegations; we have never heard anything remotely connected to the crimes charged against Dee Dee in the film. How can that be fair to my daughter, to Dee Dee, or to our family?”

Despite having to live most of her life in the public eye, Cissy Houston defends her daughter stating the public has no right to “know every intimate detail of her life beyond what she herself revealed during her lifetime… if she was molested I do not believe she would have wanted it to be revealed for the first time to thousands, maybe millions of people in a film.”

The Whitney director Macdonald, 50, revealed to Vanity Fair, back in May, that he “managed to persuade Mary Jones, who was Whitney’s longtime assistant and probably knew her in her last years more than anybody,” to open up about the molestation claims, as featured in the documentary.

“She talks about what Whitney felt and what effect it had on her. So we changed the whole cut at the very last minute. It was kind of a detective story to get that piece of information, which changed how I felt about Whitney and how I felt about the story”.

People magazine reported revealing the information was a difficult decision for Mary Jones, “she confided in me and I struggled tremendously deciding whether to share this secret or keep to myself”.

Jones goes on further to say, “I deeply love and respect Dionne, Cissy and their entire families, and my intention was never to embarrass anyone in the family, but rather to bring to light that Whitney was subjected to something painful and troubling as a child. And it’s something that happens to other innocent kids and goes unspoken too much… I decided to share the story so that people might understand that throughout her entire life Whitney carried this with her, and the weight of it was immense. Whitney was a wonderful woman, an angel, and she did not drag herself down all alone — there was a cause.”

Before the film debut, director Macdonald revealed on Good Morning America that Gary Houston “was molested when he was a kid by a woman in the family and he thought also Whitney had been as well.”

In Whitney, Gary Houston, 60, alleges Dee Dee Warwick molested him when he was 7 to 9 years old. He had no prior knowledge of Whitney’s alleged abuse leading up to the film’s release.

Gary further revealed in an interview on Good Morning America, “I was 8 [or] 9 years old and I was being fondled with from time to time. It was a situation I didn’t understand. I knew it was abnormal.”

Cissy Houston and Dionne Warwick concluded their joint statement: “After people have seen the film they will draw their own conclusions and we are not trying to change that. We just want people to know there is another side. While the filmmakers certainly had the legal right to make this film, I wonder at the moral right.”

No charges were ever filed against Dee Dee Warwick.

Dee Dee Warwick passed away in 2008. The Grammy-nominated soul singer sang backup vocals for stars including Aretha Franklin. Dee Dee Warwick is the sister of Dionne Warwick, and both are nieces of Cissy Houston, Whitney’s mother.

Whitney Houston, who was 18 years younger than Dee Dee Warwick, died in February 2012 at the Beverly Hilton Hotel from drowning and the effects of atherosclerotic heart disease and cocaine use.

Whitney is now out in theatres.

Britney Spears set for return to Las Vegas

It looks like the pop princess is ready for a residency return to Vegas!

Britney Spears, 36, wrapped up her four-year Piece of Me residency at Planet Hollywood in December 2017.

The singer is reportedly in negotiations for a two-year show, commencing in 2019 at The Park Theatre, in The Monte Carlo.

Mirror reported that as part of the deal, Spears will earn $500,000 per show – a deal that will make her the “highest-paid woman on the Strip, beating Celine Dion.”

An exceptional deal that is too good to refuse. And it looks like the 36-year-old singer is steering towards taking on the deal.

A Vegas insider revealed: “Britney has pretty much verbally agreed to return for a very significant fee.”

Executives at Caesars Entertainment declined to extend the Toxic singer’s deal at Planet Hollywood, where Spears was previously raking in $400,000 per show.

Another perk to the deal is Spears does not “have to sing all the lyrics” – a skill that Spears is known to be a master at.

A residency come back cannot be at a more better time than in 2019. The show debut will coincide with the 21st anniversary of Spears’ smash hit single, Hit Me Baby One More Time.

Spears previous Las Vegas show, Piece of Me, grossed $138 million.
