Somebody hit the lights on Hollywood's biggest night sorta.
After Hart continued to make an ass out of himself time and time and time again, The Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences has just said, "Fuck it."
For the first time in nearly 30 years, the "iconic" ass patting award ceremony will be without a host, instead focusing on music in film, according to one person involved with the show - but not the envelopes - said.
The Oscars, hosted by absolutely nobody, are on Feb. 24th, 2019. Nominations are announced Jan. 22nd
He’s not the hit maker he once was in the 90s and 2000s with behemoth of hits like “I Believe I Can Fly” and “Ignition (Remix)” – sure he still makes money from these throwback hits as signified by the large streaming numbers on Spotify. However, streaming sales aren’t bringing in the big bucks the way physical sales did for an artist like Kelly who is no longer in the mainstream spotlight the way he once was. Though his last few albums do not bring revenue he once had, he still remains a prolific producer in the music industry. With a back catalog like his, Kelly is more than likely is not working for free and the artists with whom he works probably aren't taking charity. He’s been able to collaborate with many artists, writing and producing for them and with them. This post will list the people who have worked on Kelly's last two albums which were both commercial flops and did okay on the charts. Kelly's solo tracks on both albums perform significantly better than the collaborations which further begs the questions: why do you choose to work with R. Kelly? It's obvious Kelly wants to get back into the limelight he had with such frequent, high profile performers and he's just not getting there but the money can still roll in.
The issue is that these collaborations still help Kelly reach his untouchable musical icon status. It's easy to want to paint a picture of a predator who must now resort making jingles on a Fisher-Price toy in a shoddy apartment (and he doesn't even deserve that). Despite the decades long allegations and charges of child pornography, the Pied Piper of R&B can still be largely behind the scenes of not just his work but others as well. He has never been ostracized from the music industry until this last year but even then, he can still hold concerts, perform, release long winded songs and write and produce for mainstream artists. They are still willing to work with him and allow him to be featured on their songs and willing to help produce own Kelly's own albums.
It’s hard to not think the money he earns as a producer, collaborator, as an artist helps fund the silence of the women and girls he allegedly holds against their will, isolating them from their families, to buy the silence of past victims so he can continue to work with high profile artists. Money given to these collaborators on his own albums in a way buys the silence for them to not speak out against him. Years ago before the allegations, working with Kelly would garner lots a critical acclaim and sales but now... it seems that the money speaks a lot more than the stories of survivors or even that Kelly was charged with child pornography. With the Lifetime documentary premiering and legal troubles now surrounding the singer, these recent collaborations will more than likely come back to bite these people in the ass. If anyone of his collaborators speaks out, what exactly would their excuse be?
There is also a two-way street by which some of these artists are being paid to collaborate with Kelly. Beyond the money, these collaborations help the legitimacy of Kelly’s career because many artists are still willing to work with him. In OP's honest opinion, even without the sordid allegations, why would anyone ever choose to work with Kelly after the release of Trapped in the Closet, some of the dumbest songs ever put out in the universe.
Listed below are the people who have collaboration, writing and producing credits on Kelly's last two albums and other songs since 2013. He's quite prolific so this is not every artist or producer so it's got to be narrowed down. Unfortunately, Kelly's reach in the world of R&B and hip-hop is wide reaching. With people in line to work with him, these mediocre group projects are a strategic way to help cast doubt on the abuse allegations because it screams all these high profile people work with him and still work with him. Some of these artists absolutely do not need to work with Kelly and not just to avoid the bad publicity, but they have incredibly successful songs and careers without Kelly's contribution.
On Kelly's album Black Panties released in 2013
“All the Way” featuring Kelly Rowland

On the 2015 album, The Buffet which is Kelly's lowest charting album to date and the artist has been dealing with declining sales for a long time, so one has to wonder since none of these singles blew up was it okay to turn a blind eye to everything for the cleared check?

*NGT48 (sister group of AKB48) member Yamaguchi Maho has come forward with details of a harrowing assault she experienced last month.
* Maho used Japanese streaming site Showroom to tell fans that she was assaulted in her own home by two men she did not know.
* Maho also said that one of her fellow NGT48 members gave the two men her address and told them where they could fine her.
* Maho's Showroom broadcast was abruptly cut short after she revealed this, and removed from the site. Videos of her Showroom posted on other sites are being hit with copyright infrigment notices, something that typically doesn't happen when girls from other JPN48 groups stream.
* AKS (the management company behind most of the JPN48 groups) have gone on record to claim that Maho is a liar and a fraud.
* Fans are trying to get her story trending and in international news so AKS can't bury it. Fans are also trying to figure out which girl(s) set her up.
Poor girl, I hope she receives justice. I hope the men who did this and the girl(s) who sold her out burn in hell.
I didn't detail her assault, but you can read more about it at the source.

White privilege strikes again
With no due respect, Trigger Warning with Killer Mike launches January 18 on Netflix, taking on the economy, gang culture, religion, education, and more.
“‘Trigger Warning’ is about examining cultural taboos and giving viewers the space to examine the ‘what ifs’ and ‘why nots’ that limit how some people move and operate in the world,” says Michael Render, pka Killer Mike. “In six episodes, we explore the human condition using nontraditional approaches. Not everyone will agree with my methods (and some of what we’re putting out is fucking crazy), but this show is about embracing your freedom to challenge societal expectations and conformity. This show is if an anarchist determined the status quo.”
Favorite KM/RTJ song?
-Sexy af Tommy Martinez portrays Riverdale villain Malachi, leader of the Southside Serpents' rival gang The Ghoulies. Currently he stars on The Fosters spinoff show Good Trouble as Gael, who is bisexual. Discussed his new role and how he relates to his character at the Los Angeles LGBT Center on Monday.
-Relates to his character's financial and artistic struggles, but mainly his storyline with his sexuality struck the biggest chord with him. Tommy has struggled with his sexuality in the past, comes from a religious family and expresses difficulties he's faced with homophobia in the Hispanic community.
-Had an experience with a man 10 years ago, doesn't go into much details, but talks about how he kept it to himself for years.
-“And I kept that inside the whole time until now. And to have this opportunity to portray this character and this community, I felt, especially in front of you wonderful people, I felt maybe this is the best place to express that. And so I saw myself completely in Gael’s shoes. And so when I got that audition notice and dove deeper into the character, I just felt right with it.”
-Currently is dating Chilling Adventures of Sabrina star Adeline Rudolph, who plays Agatha, one of the Weird Sisters.
Very happy for him, and for myself because this means I might have a chance lol. I adore Adeline but if y'all ever break up...call me, baby.
Fans of Kathy Griffin know her mother Maggie, who appeared on My Life on the D List, frequently attended events alongside her daughter, and has often been featured on Kathy's social media. After a lengthy gap in Maggie content, Kathy took to Twitter to explain:
A) As heartbreaking as this is, I feel the need to share some important info about my mom Maggie. I've always been honest with you all, but this one is really hard. The pic below, taken in September, was the last time I was able to have a proper/coherent conversation with her. pic.twitter.com/oqBcQTEDAB— Kathy Griffin (@kathygriffin) January 3, 2019
B) Since that photo was taken, she has rapidly fallen into the throes of dementia. This is never easy for any child, I know this is a reality that millions of people deal with every year. But when it comes to my mom this is particularly hard because her sharp mind was everything.— Kathy Griffin (@kathygriffin) January 3, 2019
C) My mom is 98 and up until this past couple years she was so sharp she always kept me on my toes. Her mind was so naturally quick, funny, and smart. No one could get anything past her. Watching that slip away so fast has been devastating.— Kathy Griffin (@kathygriffin) January 3, 2019
D) I want to assure you all that she is not in pain and she is getting the best 24-hour care. In terms of how she is now, at this point she only knows my name and I love you. I know many of you know what that reality is like...I'm still grappling with it.— Kathy Griffin (@kathygriffin) January 3, 2019
E) A big reason I'm sharing this news with you is that so many of you have asked why I haven't posted a video of Maggie & her beloved dog Twinkle in the past few months. Now you understand why we haven't been able to share anything, here is a moment between them from this summer pic.twitter.com/IWdzoGAHTW— Kathy Griffin (@kathygriffin) January 3, 2019
F) What I am most proud of when I comes to My Life On The D List is that show gave me the opportunity to show the world how naturally funny my parents were. When people tell me they feel like they know my mom, I always respond "you do!" She never put on a show, she was the show.— Kathy Griffin (@kathygriffin) January 3, 2019
K) I would love it if you would respond to this thread with a video clip of your favorite Maggie moments or if you had the honor of meeting her a photo. While the reality for Maggie is different now, I want to remember the woman all of you fell in love with.— Kathy Griffin (@kathygriffin) January 3, 2019
Visit Kathy's twitter feed for the rest of the thread, which contains videos and memories of Maggie before her decline.

While social media audiences might better know her as @golden_barbie, to simply call Jasmine Sanders an Instagram-famous model would be an injustice. Not only is she a muse to legendary makeup artist Pat McGrath, but Sanders will get a starring role in Sports Illustrated's infamous swimsuit issue this coming year. In this episode of #GoToBedWithMe, the model walks us through her nighttime skincare routine and how she keeps her skin looking filtered 24/7.
Mathew Knowles Reveals How He Saved Destiny’s Child From R. Kelly https://t.co/ZHuz4ieifr— ThatGrapeJuice (Sam) (@thatgrapejuice) January 9, 2019
Papa Knowles reveals in an interview with ‘The Metro’ that he took any and all steps to protect Destiny's Children from R.Kelly including prohibitting the girls from working with him.
I was there, and my former wife Tina was there. The thing with R Kelly was, he liked to record late at night, around midnight. And what was different with his studio was that one room had a recording suite, and next door was a club, with 40 or 50 people dancing. R Kelly was managed by Sony, by someone I won’t name, and at that time, they would almost force you to record with [their] artists. And R Kelly wasn’t cheap – it was $75,000, plus travel costs, so we’re talking $100,000 for a song. ‘I personally rejected the song, because I didn’t think it was a good song. Not just because of [his] reputation – this was around 1998, we had just begun to hear some of those things.’
Record labels would request R Kelly to write songs for new artists to help them break into the industry and he requested to work with Destiny’s Child but Mathew and Tina put a No No No on that request because they didn't want him near the girls.
Beyoncé also blocked R.Kelly from working on her own material and successfully blocked his efforts to generate income when he remixed her songs in an act of solidarity with his victims. Kelly released a remix of her single ‘If I Were a Boy’ and he wanted it to become an official remix since they are on the same label but Beyoncé kept it Me, Myself and I and refused.
