Rihanna, Cardi B, Tiffany Haddish, JLo, Oprah and more make 2018 TIME 100 List

TIME magazine revealed its annual list of the 100 most influential people in the world. Among the notable musicians on this year’s TIME 100 are Rihanna and Cardi B

Rihanna entered the list as an Icon. Her blurb was written by Adele:

"I actually can’t remember the first time I met Rihanna; I was probably numb from the shock of it," Adele wrote. "She is one year older than me, but I feel like she’s been around forever. The progression of her superstardom feels steady, well deserved and extremely natural. She burst onto the scene with the absolute banger that is ‘Pon de Replay’ in 2005, so young and breathtakingly beautiful. But the first time it felt like she made everyone sit up was with ‘Umbrella.’ It crossed her over to every platform and into everyone’s lives. It felt like she had truly arrived, and she hasn’t slowed down since. Even more, she has designed and conquered an entire lane of her own. The innovative and groundbreaking world of Rihanna that no one else will ever be safe in and get away with copying. She makes her own rules and bends ours."

Taraji P. Henson did the writeup for Cardi, named as a Pioneer:

“The first time I went on her Instagram page, she was so raw, coming at you, like, whoa!” Henson continued, “She used words like ‘shmoney’ and ‘shmoves,’ and she talked openly about being a former stripper.” She closed the blurb, “Cardi B’s here to stay, baby, and I’m happy to be a witness.”

Also included on the 2018 TIME 100 are Tiffany Haddish (Pioneer, written about by Kevin Hart), Issa Rae (Pioineer, written by Mindy Kaling), Black Panther star Chadwick Boseman (Icon, with a blurb from Sean “Diddy” Combs), and Jennifer Lopez (Icon, writing by Kerry Washington). 

Check out the full 2018 TIME 100 list here.

Girl group 702 reunites after 12 years for a reunion tour

702 reunited and is coming to a city near you

Known for their 1999 hit "Where My Girls At?," the platinum-selling girl group 702 recently announced that they are back together!


Lead singer Meelah has confirmed that the group is officially back in business for a reunion tour.

Known individually as Kameelah Williams, Irish Grinstead and LaMisha Grinstead, the singers rose to stardom in 1996. In 2006, the trio officially called it quits, but reunited publicly at the 2017 Soul Train Music Awards. 

Look, I don't know if they reunited for the fans or if because their money dried up, but either way, I'm here for this reunion! Do it for the R&B culture, yassssss!

Mariah Carey denies claims that she sexually harassed her ex-manager

Mariah Carey has denied claims she sexually harassed her former manager, according to multiple reports. 

Stella Bulochnikov has threatened to file a lawsuit against her old boss claiming Mariah walked around naked and 'did sexual things' in front of her, reports TMZ. 


Stella worked as executive producer on reality show Mariah's World before being fired in November 2017. 
Hitting back at the claims, Mariah's rep has accused Stella of "spreading false rumours." 

"She has been spreading false rumors to any media outlet that will publish them. We won't respond to lies and threats," the spokesperson told E! News.


However, Mariah - who went public with her bipolar battle last week - insists there was no such contract in place, according to Mirror. 

"Stella Bulochnikov was terminated from employment as Mariah's manager due to failure to perform her job effectively and ill-serving her client. Stella was not under contract for employment," the rep added.

A pregnant Cardi B twerks it out and brings the strip club to Coachella

A pregnant Cardi B brought the sexy and the strip club to Coachella as she twerked all over the stage! 

A pregnant belly wasn't stopping the "Bodak Yellow" rapper from enjoying herself as she performed most of her new Invasion of Privacy album.

While dancers flipped around on poles behind her, Cardi performed in an all-white ensemble reminiscent of early TLC looks


After Cardi twerked it out a couple of times, she jokingly said, "and, that's how I got pregnant, ya'll!"

Aside from the extra wack crowd who seemed to be so caught up in recording the concert on their phones instead of enjoying the actual live performance, Cardi's set was extra lit!

The "Bodak Yellow" rapper also brought out Chance The Rapper, Kehlani, G-Eazy, 21 Savage and YG. 


Watch her Coachella performance below:

Michael Jackson or Beyonce? Twitter battles over who is the all-time greatest performer

MJ or Bey?

Are we really comparing the two? Like, c'mon.

Earlier today (April 15) #MichaelJackson was trending on Twitter and I was so confused. 

I asked myself: is there new MJ music? ... Did someone else die in the Jackson family? ... Is there a lawsuit? ... It's not his birthday, is it? Or, the anniversary of his death? ... Why is MJ trending??

So, duh. I clicked on the Michael Jackson hashtag to find out what the hoopla was all about, and to my surprise, fans of both MJ and Beyonce were going at it in a Twitter battle over who is the best.


After Beyonce's Coachella slayage, some are calling the performance the greatest of all time, and ... do dare I say it ...  saying Beyonce is the greatest entertainer of ALL TIME.

Woahhhhh! Flag on the play!

Now, I'm a 33-year-old woman who grew up listening to The Jackson 5 and MJ on vinyl records (thanks to my dad), and I'm also still young enough to grow up during the time when Beyonce emerged from Destiny's Child and has since slayed the music industry for over 10 years. Both Bey and MJ are icons and cultural leaders. 

While I do agree that Beyonce is in fact the best LIVING entertainer at the moment, I don't think anyone even remotely compares to MJ when it comes to having the G.O.A.T title. 

I love Beyonce and at times, I can be a crazed fan too, but MJ is in a category by himself. I'm sure even Bey would agree with this. 

MJ is one of the biggest selling artists of all-time and he's the greatest live performer of all-time + he's one of the most talked about celebs of all-time. 






Now, I understand that a lot of young kids watched Coachella last night or even attended the festival and saw Bey's performance in-person so maybe in their lifetime, last night's performance was really the best they've ever seen. Maybe these kids are not really up on MJ's history. Such a shame. So, to them, Beyonce is like the MJ of their generation. 

Bey has already put in the work and at only 36 years old, I think she's already a living legend. But, her and MJ, the "King of Pop" shouldn't even be compared. MJ is thee greatest entertainer, ever. Up until his death in 2009, MJ was smashing all kind of records and breaking history (without the help of social media), and he put in over 35 years in the entertainment industry. 

It’s not even possible to compare MJ and Bey when the two existed in two completely different eras!

Did Beyonce give us ONE OF THE BEST performances in history at Coachella last night ... Yes. Is that performance the best performance in history ... No. Understand the difference here? Beyonce gets her props but she does not overshadow the legends who have come before her. 

James Brown was Michael's inspiration. Michael was Beyonce's inspiration. 

Little kids, please do your homework and Google searches, and just enjoy the great performance Beyonce put on. There's room for everyone. Thank you.
