Billie Lourd Pays Tribute to Late Mother Carrie Fisher on Sixth Anniversary of her Death

  Billie Lourd wrote a tribute post to her late mother Carrie Fisher six years after Carrie’s death. In a Tuesday Instagram post, the Ticket to Paradise star acknowledged the six-year anniversary of her mother Carrie Fisher’s death. Captioning a photo of herself and her late mother together, Billie wrote, “It has been 6 years since my Momby died (feels like 2 but also like 705 at the same time?). And unlike most other years since she’s died, this year, these past two weeks have been some of the most joyful of my life.” Billie and her husband Austen Rydell welcomed their second child, Jackson, on 12 December. They also share two-year-old Kingston. “My mom is not here to meet either of them and isn’t here to experience any of the magic. Sometimes the magical moments can also be the hardest,” the actress shared in her post. “For anyone out there experiencing the reality of grief alongside the magic of life, I see you. You are not alone.” She advised anyone experiencing both “magical” and

Fat Joe Sparks Debate After Calling Ja Rule The Drake Of His Era


 Fat Joe loves giving his longtime friends their flowers, and his recent Verzuz opponent was next in line. On Wednesday (September 15), Fat Joe and Ja Rule hopped on Instagram Live to break down their historic Verzuz battle from the night before.


Both rappers had a stranglehold on Hip Hop and pop in the early 2000s and Fat Joe made it a point to uplift Ja’s incredible career, saying the Queens legend did what  Drake is currently doing long before the 6 God was breaking records.


“No disrespect to your Hip Hop roots, you’re a pop star,” Joe told Ja Rule. “I always tell everybody you was the Drake before Drake. You had hit after hit after hit after hit.”


Ja laughed off the compliment before claiming Drake is one of the greatest of all time, which Joey Crack agreed with — but that didn’t stop him from giving the Murder Inc. rapper his flowers.

“He’s the GOAT, we not going there,” Fat Joe added. “But what I’m saying is for the youth who’s tuned in, they don’t realize that this guy Ja Rule had a run like Drake for years. Just hit, hit, hit, hit, hit, hit, hit, hit, hit, hit.”


Fat Joe made a bold claim, but it’s hard to argue Ja Rule’s remarkable run during Hip Hop’s early transition into the pop world. Ja sold over 30 million records worldwide and had several Top 20 Billboard Hot 100 hits, three of which went No. 1 (“I’m Real (Murder Remix)” and “Ain’t It Funny” both featuring Jennifer Lopez and “Always On Time” featuring Ashanti).


He topped the Billboard 200 twice with Rule 3:36 in 2000 and Pain Is Love in 2001 and was nominated for four Grammy Awards.


Fat Joe: “Yesterday’s hits are not today’s hits!”

Later on, during their Instagram Live, Fat Joe and Ja Rule had Ashanti join them to discuss her and her ex-boyfriend Nelly seeing each other after so long on Tuesday night. Fans were quick to assume the two were reconciling, but that wasn’t the case.


“Listen, there’s nothing happening,” Ashanti said. “Now look, this is the crazy part. I had no idea he was gonna be there, and I haven’t seen him or spoken to him since we broke up. Six years or something? So, I didn’t know what to expect. I seen him move you out the way.”


Ja rule was rapping/singing before Drake mans need his flowers.

I know Fat Joe and Ja Rule are not claiming Ja was the Drake of his era. Drake would never let a nigga come and take his spot. The audacity. There is no other Drake.

Drake owes his entire career to Ja Rule. Argue with ya bald head momma #verzuztv

Can y’all stop with the Ja Rule was Drake before Drake bullshit. Ja can’t sing or carry a damn note, he did not sell as much records as Drake, and he for damn sure wasn’t a teen actor like Drake was lol the comparison don’t make sense. Yeah he harmonized but he wasn’t a singer!

Stormzy Fanboys Over Taylor Swift Backstage At MTV EMAs

 The pair both attended the MTV European Music Awards (EMAs) in Dusseldorf, Germany on Sunday (13.11.22) - where the US pop megastar dominated the evening, earning four gongs - and the Grime star was successful in his pursuit of grabbing a snap with the 'Karma' hitmaker backstage at the bash. He posted on his Instagram Story: "Man’s trying to get a selfie with Taylor Swift! Man’s running around." The 'Vossi Bop' hitmaker then captioned a selfie tagging the singer: "@taylorswift can I have a selfie please." He then updated fans: "Mans going to meet Taylor. (sic)" And sure enough, he posed with the 'Shake It Off' hitmaker before adding a final picture of himself with a massive smile beaming across his face. Pleased with himself, he gushed "So happy." The 29-year-old rapper has made a habit out of fanboying over his idols backstage at awards ceremonies. In 2020, Stormzy interrupted Billie Eilish's backstage interview at t

Drake Is Offended By Dad’s Tattoo Of His Face

    Drake shared that he isn’t too fond of his dad tattoo of his face. See the ink in question that has Drizzy wondering "why you do me like this." Drizzy took to Instagram to make fun of his dad Dennis Graham's tattoo—which happens to be a portrait of Drake's face. "I was just sitting here thinking why you do me like this," the rapper wrote on Aug. 8, "We family," he added, along with laughing-crying emojis to get the joke across. Guess it's safe to assume Drake isn't a fan of the ink, which was done nearly five years ago. And since that first tattoo session, Dennis has done his best to get the tattoo changed. "Hahaha I had 16 people to try and straighten this out," Dennis commented, "they're hurting me." In a separate comment, Dennis added, "I love you and miss you." While Drake has been known to have a few portrait tattoos of his own, such as Lil Wayne, Denzel Washington, and even his dad's mugshot.

Kid Cudi Wants to Help Lil Nas X Destroy the 'Homophobic Cloud Over Hip-Hop'

  Kid Cudi is extending himself to Lil Nas X . For Time's 100 Most Influential People of 2021 list, published on Wednesday (Sept. 15), Cudi wrote about Lil Nas X and declared his support for the "Industry Baby" artist after the 22 year old tweeted that Black male rappers aren't interested in working with him. "When I saw the tweet about Nas’ album Montero not featuring Black male artists, and he replied that 'maybe a lot of them just don’t wanna work with me,' that made me sad," Cudi wrote. "There’s a homophobic cloud over hip-hop, and he’s going to break that s--- down. We have to stand with him. I’m going to do whatever I have to do to let him know -- you have my support. When we do our song together, however trippy the video is, let’s get sexy with it." After seeing Lil Nas' tweet, Cudi replied, "N---a I'll work w u and frolic in rose gardens w u and singin about my pain." In a follow up tweet, Lil Nas told his follo
