Kendrick Lamar has responded to his Grammy snub.  Find out what he said inside and see a photo of YBF celebs at Clive Davis’ Grammy Party and check out stills from Shakira and Rihanna’s "Can’t Remember to Forget You" video.

Now that the dust has settled, Kendrick Lamar has spoken to XXL about being snubbed by the Grammys.  But don’t expect to hear any -ish talking…..

On Macklemore’s success:

“It’s well deserved; he did what he did, man,” Kendrick said. “He went out there and hustled and grinded. Everything happens for a reason; the universe comes back around, that’s how it go.”

On being overlooked by the Grammys:

“I definitely feel like they should always have more of the culture up in there, for sure, because we definitely stand out just like any other genre,” Kendrick said when asked if he thought the Grammys undervalued hip-hop. “We part of the world. We part of the movement. So I think any awards, including the Grammys, should always push for more hip-hop because it’s music as a whole, it’s not just splitting different regions. Everything moves as far as sound and vibrations, and that’s how it goes. And we are a part of that.”

In other K. Dot news, he helped J. Cole celebrate his 29th birthday at MSG.

Speaking about Rihanna’s performance, Shakira said. “Her voice in this song is just unreal ’cause she is reggae. I don’t think I’ve ever heard a female singer deliver her lines in a reggae song with such authenticity. I’m just over the moon to know that we did a video together and we did this song together.”

According to Radar Online, he purchased the home in 2007 for $3.04 million and sold it in November 2013 for $2.2 million, allegedly losing nearly $1 million on it.  The home has 8-bedroom and 11-bathrooms.

On Big Sean as a father:
"I think he’s going to be an amazing husband, and he’ll make a great father someday. He’s so kind to people, but he also wears the pants in our relationship, which I love. We Latinas are very independent and strong, so it’s even sweeter that I’ve found somebody who can let me out of that role for a minute."

On their sex life:
"We have sex in public. We have sex everywhere!"

WTF News: Woman Disowns Cat For Being Gay

Posted by | Posted in Da Game and Industry News | Posted on 31-01-2014

Yes, people, this is really a thing. A Nigerian woman has disowned her cat because it displayed same sex attraction.

Via Huffington Post:

As the Nigerian newspaper Leadership notes, the woman (identified simply as being middle-aged) rid herself of Bull, whom she owned for seven years, after the cat was deemed to “be in the habit of making sexual advances” only to other male cats in the household.

“By this, the cat has made a record as the first cat to be so publicly declared gay and disowned by its owner,” writer Donatus Nadi notes in the article. As for the cat’s disgruntled owner, she would only add, “Anybody interested in this gay cat can have it because I have no further use of it.”

The news comes just days after Nigerian President Goodluck Jonathan signed a controversial bill banning same-sex marriage, gay “amorous relationships” and participation in LGBT rights groups.

While Bull may be the world’s first documented gay cat, other animals have exhibited what many believe to be same-sex attraction. In December 2013, it was revealed that penguins Chupchikoni and Suki, who live together in an Israeli zoo, were actually two females.

“We are certain that they made a choice to be together,” Tamuz Setti, head of the Safari Avian Department, told reporters at the time.

Meanwhile, in 2005, Romeo and Juliet — two graceful swans in Boston’s Public Garden who shared a nest — were found to both be female. 

What I want to know is, how many cats did this woman have? Sounds like she’s the one with the problem in more ways than one.

WTF News: A New York City Employee is in Trouble For Working Too Hard

Posted by | Posted in Da Game and Industry News | Posted on 31-01-2014

This is a terrible thing to read, especially considering that we live in a country where slacking seems to be the thing to do (see mediocre reality stars, internet celebrities, etc). Anyway…

Viktor Berlyavsky, a Department of Environmental Protection project manager, was charged with “misconduct” for working too long. Berlyavsky says he works so hard because his normal seven-hour workday isn’t enough time to meet his supervisor’s deadlines and never imagined that he’d get in trouble for it.
Via NY Post:

But on six days between March and May of last year, Berlyavsky stayed beyond his shift — ignoring orders from his boss to leave the workplace at closing time.

Berlyavsky never put in for overtime or comp time. He says he needed to work longer to finish his assignments and to complete some union-related tasks.

Even so, officials brought him up on insubordination charges and sought an astonishing 74-day suspension as punishment.

An administrative-law judge pointed out that no one else at DEP had ever faced such bizarre charges, but he still ruled that Berlyavsky disobeyed direct orders. So he recommended suspension — for a single day.

“The facts found here show that respondent was insubordinate in twice disobeying an order to leave work after seven hours,” Judge John Spooner said in his decision. “At the same time, the facts show several additional mitigating circumstances, all of which must be weighed in determining a penalty.”

Spooner, in his decision, said there was no evidence that the leave-on-time directive “served any specific agency policy.” He called the misconduct “minor” in nature and said “only a minimal penalty is warranted.”

Still, Berlyavsky — who has worked for the agency 12 years but is a non-managerial worker, earning about $59,000 in 2012 — called the directive “humiliating and unfair.” Co-workers of his who have managerial titles have frequently worked longer than seven hours in order to complete their duties. 

Ain’t that some ungrateful ish! I hope this man finds a new and better job where his time will be respected and appreciated.

Epic Fail of the Day: Saudi Arabian Couple Divorces After Wife Tries to Look Like Kim Kardashian

Posted by | Posted in Da Game and Industry News | Posted on 31-01-2014

A Saudi man divorced his wife after she tried to look like Kim Kardashian, thinking it would please him. The wife began her quest to imitate Kim K after noticing his admiration for the reality star, reports Emirates 247.

The woman changed her hair and visited a plastic surgery clinic in an effort to look like Kimmie Cakes because she thought it would make her husband more attracted to her.

“I noticed that he admires Kim Kardashian so I decided to be like her and even more beautiful,” she told the Saudi Arabic language daily Sada.

“I changed my hair style and visited a plastic surgery clinic.

“I even tried to walk like Kim Kardashian in the hope my husband would be more attracted to me, but the results were not as I had wished.

“He said he did not like what I have done and started to argue about what I have done before he decided to divorce me and marry another woman.”

Womp womp. Be yourself folks.

Props to Bossip.

Hip-Hop Rumors: Are the Allegations Against Apollo Nida True?

Posted by | Posted in Da Game and Industry News | Posted on 31-01-2014

Angela Stanton is fishing for an outlet to allow her to continue telling her side of the story. For those who might be out of the loop, Angela Stanton came forward a few years ago and alleged that she was involved in a criminal ring that involved identity theft, fraud and embezzlement, lead by Apollo Nida, who is married to Phaedra Parks of Real Housewives of Atlanta, and his brother.

Stanton wrote a book entitled, Lies of a Real Housewife presumably alleging that Phaedra Parks might not have physically been involved with the crimes in question but that she probably knows more than she lets on about the situation.

Welp, we’re having déjà vu because Nida is in trouble on similar charges, once again, and Stanton is working hard to push her book. She released the following statement:

In 2012, I released my personal memoir, Lies of a Real Housewife: Tell the Truth and Shame the Devil. In the book, I detailed the struggles I faced as a young woman drawn to the temptations of crime and the false glamour it affords. I alone am responsible for the mistakes I made as a young woman. Yet, I have felt a certain sense of anger toward the people who used me during that period of my life. Certain individuals found me at a time when I was vulnerable and searching for friendship, and used those traits to lure me into doing their bidding.

She added:

I read with sadness the news that Phaedra Parks’ husband, Apollo Nida, was arrested for alleged schemes that are remarkably similar to those that lured me years ago. I was troubled to learn that the alleged crimes involved the use of a vulnerable woman to carry out the schemes. The story is all too familiar to me. I sincerely hope that Ms. Parks has not been part of his alleged crimes. I hope that she, like I, learned from her mistakes.

And her last bit:

Although tragic, the news of Apollo’s arrest has been vindicating for me. Since I published my book, Phaedra Parks has used her wealth and influence in an attempt to silence me. She filed lawsuits against my publisher, and threatened them with years of expensive litigation if they did not cease publication of my book. As a result, I lost nearly all the royalties I was owed. Ms. Parks used her influence in the media to discredit my story and smear my name, casting me as a delusional liar on the pages of popular blogs. After going to prison and losing everything, my story was all I had left, and she took that from me.

Stanton is involved in a legal battle with Phaedra Parks, probably for defamation, but she mentioned that she can’t speak about it at the advice of her lawyer. Stanton claims that she really just wants to share her story–you know, as a cautionary tale and that she is seeking the “appropriate forum” to do so.

In other words, she’s looking for big dollars.

Mmhmm…

Still Ill? Nas Says He Has Considered Doing A Sequel To Illmatic (VIDEO)

Posted by | Posted in Da Game and Industry News | Posted on 31-01-2014

(AllHipHop News) Nas might have just gave his fans a short heart attack.

During his interview at the second annual VIBE Impact Awards in Los Angeles, Nas says he has considered doing a proper sequel to his seminal 1994 debut album, Illmatic. With scant details provided Nas does detail what needs to happen for him to do a sequel to arguably the most celebrated Hip Hop album of all time:

I definitely though about that. It just has to flow, it has to be natural. I can work on that and if I don’t like it, just scrap it. I have to feel it. It got to to be honest.

Nas has been rumored to be working on a new album with one of the producers on the original Illmatic, DJ Premier. At the Global Spin Awards last year, Premier told EME Takeover on when him and Nas would possibly do an album together saying “He has another album that he is coming out with first. So, until that drops, nothing’s happening. But it’s happening.”

Check out Nas speak on Illmatic 2 below:

Hip-Hop Rumors: Well, Lookie Who Just Confirmed He Had Sex With Azealia Banks?

Posted by | Posted in Da Game and Industry News | Posted on 31-01-2014

This is despicable! I can’t live without having it write about some BS? I think I am going to let somebody else do the rumors and I do something else!

Basically, the acclaimed producer Diplo confirmed that he smashed Azealia Banks. Some random fan did the following:

https://twitter.com/diplo/favorites

And then, fans realized that Diplo actually confirmed it by favoriting the tweet. I found that to be hilarious. He knew what he was doing. Either that he would start something or give the fans what they wanted.

Meanwhile, Azealia finds herself stuck on Universal begging for a release. SMH.

AND, she has the gall to proclaim herself the best female rapper.

I'm the best female in hip-hop. Sorry, not sorry. I'm better than most of you niggas too. Real Talk.

— AZEALIA BANKS (@AZEALIABANKS) January 30, 2014

Uhm…no.

But she also light-weight dissed Nicki speaking on other rappers.

I'm the only new female rapper with her own voice. All the other girls are doing the post-nicki minaj thing.

— AZEALIA BANKS (@AZEALIABANKS) January 30, 2014

Post Nicki era?/? She’s basically saying Nicki is over.

“They keep us talking, but if we stop talking about them then they should worry!” -illseed.

Illseed, Out.

VIDEO FAB: Shakira Ft. Rihanna — "Can’t Remember To Forget You"

Posted by | Posted in Gurl Talk | Posted on 30-01-2014

  photo ScreenShot2014-01-30at92752PM_zps50073847.png

Rihanna is grinding it out with Shakira in their new video for "Can’t Remember To Forget You".  Check out the full vid inside that just premiered…

 

Shot in a luxurious mansion in L.A., 25-year-old Rihanna and 36-year-old Shakira are going pound for pound with the sexiness in their saucy new video.

Colombian-born Shakira explained in the Making The Video footage about why she chose the Bajan pop princess:

"This song Can’t Remember To Forget You combines both the reggae and the rock spirit.  That’s why I thought that Rihanna was perfect and thought that she was the other half for this."

The track will appear on Shakira’s upcoming album.  And she clearly has a thing for sexy R&B stars who appear like an extension of herself (remember her hot video with Beyonce for "Beautiful Liar"?).

Check out the dual sexiness below:

BONUS: In case you were wondering why RIhanna didn’t go to the GRAMMYS, she posted this pic below saying "Grammy Night #TBT"
