Following her history-making set at Coachella over the weekend, Beyonce has donated $25,000 to four historically black colleges and universities for the 2018-2019 school year as part of a new scholarship program. I gotta say, I could get $2 from Beyonce and be ecstatic because it was from Beyonce… love that she is giving that much money away for someone’s education.
Two of the most high-profile Scientology members “despise” each other, according to a new interview with a former member of the church. Apparently Tom Cruise and John Travolta warred over the favor of Scientologist-in-chief David Miscavige. I guess Tom had a direct line to David where John did not. Also, Tom received over the top gifts from the church, where John did not. Tom received one of Scientology’s highest honors, the Freedom Medal of Valor at a special party in 2008 and John “exploded with jealousy.”
Two divorces has not stopped Blake Shelton from thinking about marrying his girlfriend Gwen Stefani. He says, “I think about it,” but then adds, I don’t think it’s anytime soon or anything.” He says, “The more time that goes by, I guess, the closer you’d be getting to that.” Gwen on the other hand was recently on Ellen and said she thinks about marrying Blake all the time and that both she and her three sons love him.
Khloe Kardashian broke her silence yesterday. She posted a picture with a whole bunch of pink balloons with the following message: “Our little girl, True Thompson, has completely stolen our hearts and we are overwhelmed with LOVE. Such a blessing to welcome this angel into the family! Mommy and Daddy loooooove you True!”
My source says Khloe is “willing to forgive” her baby daddy Tristan Thompson following reports he cheated on her throughout her pregnancy. Khloe loves him and although she knows he cheated on her, she wants to work things out.
Tyga and Iggy Azalea have sparked rumours that they’re an item after being spotted holding hands during Weekend 1 of Coachella. They spent at least two hours together talking while on couches in a private backstage area.
Ali Wentworth, who is married to ABC broadcaster George Stephanopoulos, shares some intimate details about her marriage in her new book Go Ask Ali. According to Ali, she and George, who have been married for 17 years, have so much sex that it upsets her friends. She says she has lost friends over it. She writes. “The women gasp and scream like I’ve confessed that I shot my dog. One of them always slams her fist down on the table; a woman’s wine glass once smashed in her hand.” In the early 2000’s, Ali slammed reports that their marriage was troubled by declaring that they “f**k twice a day.” Since then, George’s newsroom nickname has allegedly been “twice-a-day George.”
Rapper Kendrick Lamar has been awarded the Pulitzer Prize for Music, for his album “DAMN”. This makes him the first non-classical or jazz artist to ever win it.
Pulitzer officials called the album, “a virtuosic song collection unified by its vernacular authenticity and rhythmic dynamism that offers affecting vignettes capturing the complexity of modern African American life.”
And Pulitzer Administrator Dana Canedy called it, “a dense and sophisticated collage of hybrid sounds, polyrhythms, layered under what we would probably consider pulsing kinetic text. The brilliance of the music is what’s shone through.”
In 2008, Bob Dylan won a Pulitzer in the “Special Awards and Citations” category for his, “profound impact on popular music and American culture.” But that’s not as prestigious as Kendrick’s award.
Someone dug up a 2001 interview with Destiny’s Child . . . and the girls are acting straight-up high. Which would make sense, since it took place in Holland. And the interviewer asked a great stoner question: If you could be an animal for a day, what would you pick?
Beyonce chose a whale, because, “I’ve loved whales since I was a little girl.” Kelly went with a bird, because they can fly and, “travel all over the world.”
And Michelle chose a Black Panther, because she likes the way they walk. And then she mimicked the way a black panther walks . . . or at least the way a stoner thinks a black panther walks.
