Bruno Mars is just about the only person having an amazing last couple of months. He came into the year right after dropping his new album “24k Magic,” which is sitting comfortably atop the Billboard Charts currently with two singles in the Hot 100 and 2nd on the Top 200 albums. Back in October, he got to perform a dope set on SNL to promote the album drop. He also recently graced the stage at the 2017 Grammys not once, but twice getting to impersonate his idol, Prince. Not a bad way to start the year.
This week Bruno Mars announced he had something up his sleeves for us.
Just finished shootin it! I'm gonna edit it, take a bubble bath & then we party. Gimme 2 hours! Let the count down begin #TWILVIDEO
The competition is getting stiff on “Dancing With The Stars.” The season 28 cast has dwindled to a small group as they make their way to the semi-finals. We’ve already seen plenty of them get cut from the show, including Kate Flannery from “The Office,” Queer Eye’s Karamo Brown, model and famous daughter Sailor Brinkley-Cook, former NBA player Lamar Odom, and Supremes singer Mary Wilson. This week’s episode saw another cut (and some people were thrilled about it) during their “Boy Band & Girl Group Night” theme. The couples had to perform dance routines to songs made famous by girl groups and boy bands and controversial cast member Sean Spicer finally got the boot.
This week, former White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer was finally eliminated.
Critics of Spicer swore he’d never make it past the first episode. After all, who would vote for a man that lied continuously during their time in the White House? A lot of people, actually. Spicer made it all the way to week 9. Even President Donald Trump thought he had a sure shot of winning again this week. The president first tweeted, “Vote for Sean Spicer on Dancing with the Stars. He is a great and very loyal guy who is working very hard. He is in the quarterfinals — all the way with Sean! #MAGA #KAG.” But when Spicer got the ax, Trump deleted that tweet and revised it to: “A great try by @seanspicer. We are all proud of you!” Spicer responded to him by tweeting, “Thank you @POTUS @realDonaldTrump I can’t begin to express how much your continued support has meant, especially during my time on @DancingABC.”
Ally Brooke scored perfect tens all night. Now she’s going to the semi-finals.
Since the theme last night was girl groups and boy bands, you would think the former Fifth Harmony member would have danced to one of her own songs. Then again, that would probably be considered cheating or something. She and dance partner Sasha Farber danced to Spice Girls’ “Wannabe” and New Kids on the Block “Step by Step,” which she danced to phenomenally. The judges thought so too. They gave her perfect 10s all night. “Making our way to the semi freaking finals…Step by Step! Two dances & two perfect scores? I will never forget tonight’s show!
This is not the first time Ally and her partner have scored perfect scores. They brilliantly scored the same last week.
People think their natural talent and skills is going to take them all the way to the end. However, just because the judges give perfect scores doesn’t mean the people will vote for you. Brooke learned that lesson last week. She tweeted, “So many mixed emotions tonight. I’m elated yet disappointed because I landed in the bottom two even after receiving the first perfect score of the season. All I know is this. I’ve given this my all and I’m so thankful for my fans voting each and every week.”
Here’s Ally’s second performance of the night, which she rocked.
For anyone thinking that Brooke has a leg up on everyone else because she comes from a dancing background, you should remember these are hard dances to learn. They have a lot of technicalities. Her partner Sasha tweeted, “Samba is the hardest dance to teach out of all the dances, as it requires a very unique technique and a specific knee bounce! Watching this back we worked hours and hours on just that. I’m so proud of you!!! Thank u in believing.”
Just to be fair, here’s Sean’s last performance as a contestant on the show.
Who knew you could dance the Foxtrot to One Direction’s “A Story Of My Life”?
Spicer told People magazine that he was relieved to have been voted out. Oh sure, Sean, change the narrative, he’s kind of a pro at spinning stories.
“There’s been a tremendous amount of support that’s kept me out of the bottom two the last nine weeks and I’ve truly been humbled by how many people have taken time out of their Monday nights to keep me going,” Spicer told said to the magazine. “I will look back on this as an amazing experience.”
Now that he’s gone, the remaining group includes Ally Brooke, the “Bachelorette” star Hannah Brown, actor and comedian Kel Mitchell, country singer Lauren Alaina, and “Dawson’s Creek” star James Van Der Beek.
Rapper T.I. lost the respect of quite a few fans last week when he joked about conducting a hymen check on his daughter. This week he’s lost at least one Instagram follower: his daughter, Deyjah Harris.
During an incredibly cringe-worthy interview last week, T.I. bragged about knowing the status of his daughter’s virginity.
In a recent interview, the rapper boasted about his desire to keep his 18-year-old daughter “pure” and said that he does so by accompanying her to her yearly gynecologist appoints. As if the whole interview couldn’t have gotten worse, T.I. proved his ignorance by saying that, despite all of the doctors in the world that says that the absence of a hymen does not provide viable of proof a woman’s sexual activity, he makes the doctor report on its status.
In an interview with Nazanin Mandi and Nadia Moham for their podcast Ladies Like Us, TI gave the most bizarre and nasty response to a question about whether or not he had the “sex talk” with his daughter yet.
“Have I? This is the thing: Deyjah’s 18, just graduated high school now and she’s attending her first year of college, figuring it out for herself,” he replied. “And yes, not only have we had the conversation, we have yearly trips to the gynecologist to check her hymen.”
His response promoted laughter from the two hosts of the podcast, but T.I. made it clear that he was as serious as the heart attack that I had when I heard this.
“This is what we do. Right after the birthday, we celebrate,” T.I. continued “Usually like the day after the party she’s enjoying her gifts. I put a sticky note on the door: ‘Gyno. Tomorrow. 9:30.’”
Following her father’s comments, Deyjah Harris has unfollowed her dad on Instagram.
According to E! News, Harris, 18, unfollowed her father after telling the world that he check the status of her hymen. While she has yet to comment about her father’s gross interview she has reportedly liked several tweets that have lambasted T.I. after the “Ladies Like Us” podcast aired.
We’re not sure when Harris made the decision to unfollow her father.
But fans have pointed out that she hasn’t just stuck to clicking the “unfollow” button on her father. Harris no longer follow’s T.I.’s wife, Tameka “Tiny” Cottle, or her stepsister Zonnique Pullins.
There’s no easy way to prepare you for what disgusting thing rapper T.I. just said about his daughter, her hymen, and her virginity, so just get ready for what you’re about to read. According to the rapper, he accompanies her to every appointment with her so that he can hear the doctor’s prognosis on her hymen himself. He even pressures his daughter into signing a released statement that will allow him to obtain this information.
“We’ll go and sit down and the doctor will come and talk, and the doctor is maintaining a high level of professionalism,” he explained. “He’s like, ‘You know sir, I have to… in order for me to share information…’”
“I’m like, ‘Deyjah they want you to sign this. They want you to sign this so we can share information. Is there anything you wouldn’t want me to know? Okay. See doc? No problem.’”
As most of us know, there are many ways for a hymen to be broken that don’t include sex.
According to one Psychology Today article most young girls experience a wearing away of the hymenal tissue that surrounds their vaginal openings. “Most hymenal tissue wears away as a result of washing, walking, athletics, self-exploration, and masturbation, though little bits may remain around the vaginal opening, particularly in the area closest to the anus (hymenal tags).” But these facts aren’t enough to keep T.I. from thinking about his daughter’s private parts.
“I say, ‘Look doc, she don’t ride no horses, she don’t ride no bike, she don’t play no sports, man. Just check the hymen please and give me back my results, expeditiously.’”
As if all of this information about his prying interest in his daughter’s private life isn’t humiliating, T.I. claimed in his interview that he knows 100% his daughter’s hymen is still intact.
“I will say as of her 18th birthday, her hymen is still intact,” T.I. declared on the podcast.
And just when we thought the conversation couldn’t have gotten worse, T.I. went onto shame his daughter and virgins further when the hosts replied suggested that his decision to “keep her a virgin” would put his teenager at risk for “vultures.”
Not so, claimed T.I. “They’re no fun. Who wants a virgin?” he insisted. “Like really? All that work.”
The rapper is the father of six children with three different women.
Of course, it didn’t take long for T.I.’s bizarre interview to go viral.
Women and men were quick to slam the rapper for his behavior and violation of his daughter’s privacy.
“This is disgusting and horrible. Rapper T.I. says that he takes his daughter to the gynecologist to make sure her hymen is still intact!” New York Magazine writer Yashar Ali wrote. “Even after her 18th birthday (not that it makes it ok before her 18th birthday). Twitter user and essayist Candice Marie Benbow wrote: “This is absolutely disgusting and perverted and vile and ignorant and just plain wrong. TI is a sick, controlling narcissist and there is absolutely NO way Deyjah, her mother or any woman in TI’s life should be okay with this.”
