Sharp-witted, original, and dramatic web series are making their mark in entertainment. Through mini-episodes, loyal readers like you get acquainted to the daily lives of influencers, artists, and every day people across all cultures. From the screen, readers witness breakups and makeups to those breaking bread and hustling to stay fly in the city. Simply, Bossip has always been ahead of the curve when it comes to gossip and discovering fresh and funny content. We have even been expanding our own presence with fresh exclusive series like the hilarious Auntie’s Advice to season 1 of Charli Knows Best, Bossip knows good storytelling. Case closed.

While on the lookout we discovered that there is a brand new and dynamic roster of storytellers who will not compromise their creativity, sort of like us. Talent scouts agree that the distance between their indie projects and high profile creative roles in Hollywood is a platform that puts their content in front of the right audience.

Our parent company, iONE Digital, got news about the demand for compelling stories that provoke thought, explore social and racial issues, while giving an inside look at diverse multicultural lifestyles. Today, they are introducing the company’s new immersive video destination, A Space For Creators. This free video streaming platform is shattering glass ceilings by championing authentic voices from within the culture who are hustling to craft unique stories that they can present without censorship.

We have some hot new content to binge on our phones and tablets! In fact, the Bossip team was drawn immediately to Creators of Color, a series showcasing conversations with celebrity talent across various genres about their careers. In episode 1, we gain insight into actress Tiffany Haddish’s rise to fame and why being a person of color has made her an asset in the business.

“Being a person of color has positively impacted a lot of things in my career. I have booked roles in movies that were meant for white women but because I came through with so much character, and personality they ended up making it a black role.” -Tiffany Haddish

The comedy that exists in everyday tends to be where we live, so we are also checking for Giving Me Life (In the Land of the Deadass).

This series was written, produced and directed by Dafina Roberts and chronicles the experience of six young Black and Latinx friends navigating the wild ups and downs of life and love in New York City. We reached out to Dafina to get a sense of how she approaches creating.

Regarding the genesis of Giving Me Life (In the Land of the Deadass), Dafina Roberts shares:

“Giving Me Life was born from the real-life shenanigans of me and my friends. There is no show out right now that truly shows the breath-and-depth of sexuality for millennials of color. The series came out of the yearning to see ourselves and our communities in all our beauty and our struggle.”

Roberts also shared how she felt about having her stories being featured on a platform geared towards multicultural audiences:

I’m ecstatic about being a part of A Space for Creators! As the politics of race, gender, sexuality and class shift in our society, I think millennials of color are looking for narratives that explore these issues in smart and funny ways. I think that Giving Me Life delivers on that!

Find your binge-worthy favorites and tell us what you want to see more of… it just might be the next series to launch!

“Growing Up Hip Hop Atlanta” Season 3 Trailer

New season, who dis?

After already announcing the cast of “Growing Up Hip Hop: Atlanta” season 3, WE tv’s released a trailer for the explosive new season.

In it, we see R. Kelly’s ex-wife Andrea “Drea” Kelly and her three children Buku, Kyd, and Jaah move back to Atlanta and broke their silence in a buzzing child support battle. As Drea tries to spread her wings and fly, the arrest of R. Kelly is yet another wound inflicted on her from her nightmare of an ex. All the while that drama’s going on, Drea’s sweet daughter Buku takes a step out on her own, trying to establish herself as a vocal artist in her own right away from the long shadow of her criminal father.

Also profiled will be that CRAZY fight between Bow Wow and Kiyomi, Waka and his wife Tammy Rivera settling down after having their dream wedding in Cancun, Da Brat rebuilding her life in the wake of prison and bankruptcy, Debra Antney working alongside Brat on an Artist Boot Camp.

Returning this season will be Ms. Deb’s controversial godson Brandon Barnes who Waka calls a “scammer” and threatens to beat the brakes off of. Not only is Waka BIG mad at Brandon, Ayana Fite, DJ Hurricane’s daughter, is on a warpath against him and his lies.

“Growing Up Hip Hop: Atlanta” premieres Thursday, June 13 at 9pm ET/PT on WEtv.

 

The Growing Up Hip Hop franchise, including “Growing Up Hip Hop”, “Growing Up Hip Hop: Atlanta” and “Growing Up Hip Hop: New York”, is produced for WE tv by Entertainment One (eOne) and Datari Turner Productions.

Kim Kardashian And Kanye West Celebrate Their 5th Wedding Anniversary

Congratulations to Kim Kardashian and Kanye West who wed five years ago today! Kim celebrated their special day by sharing some wedding day photos from her private collection…

The pictures are stunning right?

These are some really beautiful intimate moments

Do you think the fans truly appreciate these or should KimYe keep more things sacred and to themselves?

Kim and Kanye have been through so much — they’ve survived her armed robbery, his mental illness issues, four kids and countless episodes of KUWTK, as well as the birth of multiple brands between the two of them.

Speaking of which — this year’s wedding anniversary also falls on the release date of her newest makeup drop — the Mrs. West Collection.

Kim’s been using her anniversary as part of her latest cosmetics campaign. Totally appropriate considering she shares so many personal moments — or is it too much?

Milwaukee Bucks v Toronto Raptors - Game Four

Drake Trades Jabs With The Daughter Of Milwaukee Bucks Owner

If Drake is serious about anything, it’s the Toronto Raptors–but he still finds a way to have fun with the people praying on the downfall of his hometown team.

The rapper’s issues with the Bucks have been a long time coming with their head coach, Mike Budenholzer, calling him out for his court-side behavior earlier this week. But beyond the small jabs from the NBA team toward Drizzy, one person in the organization decided to take things to a whole new level.

Mallory Edens, the daughter of Milwaukee Bucks owner Wes Edens, wore a t-shirt with Pusha T on it to the Raptors game on Thursday. This was obviously a ploy to get a rise out of Drake, who had an extremely public feud against Pusha this time last year.

Unsurprisingly, the Toronto native didn’t let this trolling faze him, and instead, he responded with some pretty calculated trolls of his own.

Not only did Drake follow Edens on IG, but he even changed his profile photo to a picture of her. Following that, he posted the picture of Mallory wearing her Pusha T shirt onto his Instagram story with the caption, “All is fair in war and war and trust me I’ll still get your tickets to ovo fest” along with a heart eyes emoji, of course. Classic Aubrey.

Drake has even more reason to celebrate as The Raptors ended up wining Game 5 against the Bucks and are headed back to Toronto for Game 6–so we can probably expect even more antics from the rapper in the next few days.

Shawna Morgan Said Fetty Wap Owes Her More Than $242,000; Nearly Ruined Her Reputation

Fetty Wap’s one time tour employee has accused the rapper of stiffing her out of nearly $242,703 and then trash talking her in the press.

The “679” artist will head to a New Jersey court next month for a suit from ex-employee Shawna Morris, who sued him for breach of contract and defamation, according to court papers obtained by BOSSIP.

Morgan said she worked for Fetty and his company “Fetty Wap Touring,” and in exchange, the rapper agreed to pay her between five and ten percent of his performance profits. She said she often had to shell out her own money up front for tour-related expenses, but Fetty would reimburse her. But she said by early 2017, Fetty’s payments became delayed before stopping altogether, according to court papers obtained by BOSSIP. In total, she said Fetty owes her $242,703.

But the woman said the straw that broke the camel’s back was when Fetty made several public claims against her, including that she’d stolen money from him and had been double dipping – charging Fetty’s company as well as clients. She said Fetty’s alleged falsehoods damaged her rep and work prospects.

Fetty didn’t initially respond to the case, so a judge ruled in Morgan’s favor by default. Fetty managed to get the case reinstated, and then both sides went to arbitration. But when the arbitrators later ruled that Fetty and his company pay Morgan $160,000, Fetty asked for the case to head back to trial, which is now set to start June 11.

We reached out to lawyers for both Morgan and Fetty Wap for comment.

“Game Of Thrones” Actresses Admit The Ending Was Disappointing

“Game of Thrones'” finale left much to be desired for many longtime fans of the show, but it turns out that the show’s actors would have written different endings for themselves as well.

In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Maisie Williams said her biggest regret for her character was not getting a season 8 scene with Cersei actress Lena Headey.

“I just wanted to be on set with Lena again, she’s good fun,” Williams explained. “And I wanted Arya to kill Cersei even if it means [Arya] dies too. Even up to the point when Cersei’s with Jaime I thought [while reading the script], ‘He’s going to whip off his face [and reveal its Arya]’ and they’re both going to die. I thought that’s what Arya’s drive has been.”

We’re pretty sure the WHOLE world of watchers were disappointed that Arya didn’t employ any of her Many-Faced-God skills during Season 8 — and it would have been especially gratifying against Cersei as Jaime, right?

Williams says ultimately she understood the direction show writers decided to take with Arya:

“The Hound says, ‘You want to be like me? You want to live your life like me?’” Williams said. “In my head, the answer was: ‘Yeah.’ But I guess sleeping with Gendry, seeing Jon again, realizing she’s not just fighting for herself anymore but also her family — it’s bringing up all these human emotions that Arya hasn’t felt for a long time. When The Hound asks her if she has another option, all of a sudden there are so many more things in [Arya’s] life that she can live for, that she can do. It was a shock for me because that wasn’t how I envisioned her arc going this year. Then I realized there were other things I could play, bringing Arya back to being a 16-year-old again.”

“It’s not a Game of Thrones ending for Arya, it’s a happy ending,” she concludes. “It gave me a place to take Arya that I never thought I’d go with her again.”

Williams isn’t the only one who was looking for an Arya/Cersei faceoff. According to EW, Headey said she hoped she’d have a scene with Williams in the final season as well.

“I lived that fantasy until I read the script,” Headey said. “There were chunky scenes and it was nothing that I had dreamt about. It was a bit of come down and you have to accept that it wasn’t to be. There is something poetic about the way it all happens in the end with her and Jaime.”

She’s right — there’s nothing anyone can do but to accept the weak a** ending that the writers gave us.

What do your “GOT” alternate endings look like?

We’ve shared countless memories together and going through our childhood photos was a trip down memory lane. Abigail has always been my rock, and I was honored to have her by my side during this photoshoot. Plus, she’s a new mom and has never looked hotter in a swimsuit!,” says Ashley Graham.

Abigail was also thrilled to model alongside Ashley.

“I love to support Ashley in everything she does, especially when it comes to promoting her message of beauty beyond size. As children, Ashley and I created a very tight bond that we have been able to carry over to adulthood. Every summer, we would go on road trips together to different states. I’ll never forget Ashley getting stung by jellyfish in Florida. It was hilarious! I’ll forever be grateful for the sisterly love we have for one another and will never forget the special moments we shared during the photoshoot in Punta Cana,” says Abigail.

Dionne Warwick’s Beyoncé Comments Spark Controversy

Dionne Warwick is an absolute legend and one of the first black women singers who paved the way for legends like Beyoncéto flourish. However, her recent comments on what makes someone iconic has rubbed the Beyhive the wrong way and an uncivil war has erupted on these here internets.

During an interview with ESSENCE, Warwick had this to say:

“It’s wonderful to see how she’s been able to create what and who she wanted to be and who she is…very proud of that, I really am. Now, sustaining and becoming a big icon that Gladys Knight, or Patti LaBelle, or Johnny Mathis, or Frank Sinatra, or Sammy Davis Jr. is? I doubt that, I really do. And I love her to death and can appreciate her talent. But that iconic status that I just mentioned, those four names? [She has] a long read [ahead].”

This, of course, was taken as shade because she didn’t bow down and kiss Bey’s ring. However, She took to Twitter to clarify in a now-deleted tweet:

 

“What I said is in quotes. What @Essence said is not. It takes a long time to reach and achieve iconic status. That’s not to say that Beyoncé isn’t well on her way. She is a gifted performer. That was a reach from Essence.”

 

It didn’t matter as a generational war has erupted.

BeyHive Twitter is trying to come for Dionne while Auntie Twitter has her back and is re-dragging the Hive. Duck for cover! This is getting ugly fast.
