Just about everyone was tuned in, this weekend, to watch the Aaliyah: Princess of R&B movie biopic on Lifetime. As many expected, the film brought on much criticism — something we witnessed very heavily on social media. Million of Aaliyah’s fans including her close friends were turned off by this biopic and felt as if it was a poor and inaccurate representation of their favorite female R&B singer.
Lady Saw’s album listening party, for new release, “Alter Ego,” was held in New York City last night and our staff was on hand to meet the legendary Dancehall Queen. Can you believe that Lady Saw’s career spans 25 years?! And don’t think for a minute that the Queen of Dancehall is slowing down. In fact, she is the first female Jamaican artist to win a Grammy, certified as a triple-platinum artist and has headlined a number of, and growing, dancehall shows outside her native country.
During the session Lady Saw provided previews of the album singles and even did a few impromptu performances of some of her new singles and old.
The album puts her creativity on full display and showcases both the
racy side of “Lady Saw” and the more subdued side of “Marion Hall.” The album
features collaborations with Beres Hammond, Estelle, Ali Campbell of
UB40 and Flo-Rida.
We don’t what Floyd Mayweather was thinking Monday night when he uploaded a video with a room full of strippers twerking while laid out in his boxers but we may all agree he’s doing way too much.
Since Kim K and Paper Mag’s attempt to “Break the Internet,” we’re guessing Floyd thought he’d make his own attempt to do just that. But….we didn’t exactly want to see it.
Watch the rump shake off below and share your thoughts sweethearts.

Lifetime’s Aaliyah Biopic: The Princess of R&B has stirred up lots of controversy, so much so, it inspired lots of painfully funny memes shared by millions online. The backlash became so overwhelming that it even warranted a response by actress Alexandra Shipp. Although the Nickelodeon actress was aware of Aaliyah’s family’s disapproval of the film it did not deter her from taking the role. Upon receiving backlash here’s what she had to say about her portrayal and doing her job.
“As an artist I’m going to be doing things in my life that are going to be controversial and people are not always going to agree with it.. _______READMORE
Last night’s episode of Real Housewives of Atlanta was one for the books! Cynthia took it upon her self to step out of her comfort zone and bring her sexy back.

If you watched Aaliyah: Princess of R&B movie biopic over the weekend then you may agree that the film was prematurely done.
In our opinion Lifetime and producers, including talk show maven Wendy Williams, did the late singer a disservice by ignoring her family’s wishes and continuing with the film.
One major factor? The network was denied the rights to use any of the singer’s original music. That should have been a BIG clue but dreadfully the network ignored the obvious signs in an attempt to bring the movie to fruition.
In the a nutshell, the film did little to showcase the singer’s real life and career.
If you were glued to your television screen to watch the highly anticipated Lifetime biopic of the late singer Aaliyah then, like most of us, you were disappointed.
You may have also noticed the online bashing of the film by devoted fans and several of Aaliyah’s celebrity friends who expressed their thoughts on the film being made in the first place despite the signer’s family disapproving.
The most vocal of them all was the singer’s music producer and friend Timbaland. Timb also went on to release a number of memes and videos expressing his disdain for the film.
“Hope yall not watching this!!!!!!!!”
