Thursday, Juneteenth

According to a British tabloid, Kim Kardashian is trying to pursue a music career. They said that she is getting help from her hubby Kanye and songwriting and vocal coaches. I don’t know about a singing career… but I do know that Kim K is getting ready to launch her own video game called “ Kim Kardashian Hollywood.” In this smartphone game app, the player gets to design their own avitar, go out with a boo that rains gifts and money & models for a photoshoot. It’s supposed to take you through the adventures of being a star in Hollywood.

Facebook has launched a new feature called “Slingshot” which is basically like Snap-Chat. The only difference between the two is that you actually have to respond to your friend’s message with a picture video of your own. Well, you don’t have to, but if you want to view what your friend sent you do. The creators said “With Slingshot, we wanted to build something where everybody is a creator and nobody is just a spectator.”

The Washington Redskins may really decide to change their name this time. Native Americans have really been letting their feelings be known for sometime now, they even played a promo commecial during Game 3 of the NBA finals…they have tried to sue in the past and 5 young Native Americans are trying to sue now, but is it enough to change the name? Well the U.S. Patent and Trademark office voted and they declared the NFL team’s name and logo “a racial slur.” Now it’s up to the team and it’s owners if they want to change it. People have been flooding timelines with possible name and logo changes….which is cool, but are they going to change anything? We’ll just have to wait & see.

So have you all heard about the Lifetime Biopic about Aaliyah? Well you probably heard more about it than her family has! They are heated and let’s just say the made for tv movie is probably not going to happen because she deserves a big screen. Aaliyah’s former manager which just so happens to be Her uncle Barry Hankerson said that the family was not informed informed of consulted about the movie and they plan to block the use of Aaliyah’s music in the film so I doubt that Lifetime will be able to create an efficient movie without the music.

& Finally, Think Like a Man Too hits the theaters tomorrow! I cannot wait to see it.
