Cardi B And Offsets Music Video For “Clout” Is A Tribute To Earl Black Girl Groups Like Destiny’s Child

Cardi B and Offset get really steamy in their music video for “Clout.”

The visual, directed by Daniel Russell, dropped on Wednesday, and features a lot of twerking, tongue and the color yellow.

Decked in all black, Offset plays a yellow piano before flexing in front of funhouse mirrors. Cardi joins her husband halfway through the song, performing a headstand while Offset holds her feet apart, sitting in a pool of lemons and later giving the father of their daughter, Kulture, a sultry lap dance.

The song, which appears on the Migos rapper’s solo LP Father of 4, is the couple’s fourth together and the latest after “Who Want the Smoke?”

The on-again, off-again couple, which reconciled after a brief split in December, seem to be on happier terms. Over the weekend, Cardi, who surprised Coachella guests when she joined Ozuna and Selena Gomez for a performance of “Taki Taki” during DJ Snake’s set, also joined Offset at #REVOLVEFestival, where the pair gave a PDA-filled show.

The Dominican-Trinidadian rapper, whose latest song “Please Me” features Bruno Mars, will soon be making her Hollywood debut in the Jennifer Lopez-executive produced and starring film, “Hustlers.”

Still, the best part of Cardi B and Offsets video is all in the visuals.

As some fans have pointed out, the entire thing has a pretty intense 90s/00s vibe.

There’s SO much love for Janet in this!

And a whole heck of a lot of Lil Kim love.

And TBH no one knows who did it better?

Like look at those mirrors in the background.

Classic 90s music video trait.

It’s basically just like the ones in this 702 video!

Gotta love that Cardi took her love to this level.

Whitney Houston’s Estate Released Images Of Her Hologram And Basically It’s As Scary As Seeing La Llorona

Last year when the world learned that the estate of the later singer Whitney Houston planned to send her hologram on your, there was a mass of objections and outcries. Now that a sneak peek of the tour has been released, fans have dug in their heels.

“An Evening With Whitney : The Whitney Houston Hologram Tour” will begin on February 25 in the UK.

While Houston’s death occurred eight years ago, her estate has decided to bring her back to life for fans by giving her a new tour experience. According to The New York Post, “‘An Evening With Whitney’ was designed with Whitney’s image in mind, Pat Houston, the singer’s former manager and head of the Whitney Houston estate, said. Whitney planned on giving a more intimate, unplugged-esque tour before she died. And while that never took place when she was alive, the production team behind the hologram has ensured her vision will happen posthumously.”

“We had a discussion about her doing ‘Whitney Unplugged’ or some type of ‘Evening with Whitney,’ and that was really her idea,” Pat Houston said according to the Post. “It’s a dream that was realized by her. So that’s the production. This isn’t something that we’re just putting together. This is something that she wanted to do, and I get very emotional watching this because it is so close to what she wanted. The only thing missing was her, physically.”

Whitney fans have taken to Twitter to voice their horror over the hologram which, in all honesty, is alarming to see at first.

Literally so many fans have been left speechless.

And so many of u shave too many questions.

Korean Dark Comedy ‘Parasite’ Becomes The First Non-English Language Movie To Win The Oscar For Best Picture

The Academy Awards last night brought many surprise wins and losses. “Parasite,” a Korean dark comedy about the class struggle in South Korea, swept with four major awards. The movie took home the Oscar for Best Director, Best International Film, Best Original Screenplay, and the most sought after Best Picture. The night was history-making as “Parasite” is the first non-English language movie to win Best Picture.

Director Bong Joon-ho made history last night with his film “Parasite.”

“Parasite” was competing for the award against “1917,” “Jojo Rabbit,” “The Irishman,” “Little Women,” “Marriage Story,” “Ford v Ferrari,” “Joker,” and “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.”

Director Bong Joon-ho made history with his film. “Parasite” is the first-ever non-English language film to win the award for Best Picture. There have only been 11 non-English movies nominated for Best Picture out of the 563 that have been nominated in the Academy’s history. The award is the only one where all Academy members are allowed to cast a vote for and is presented to the producers of the film. Last year’s winner was “Green Book.”

The unexpected and welcomed victory is an important moment in Oscar’s history and people are taking notice.

In a time when certain voices are being oppressed, the elevation of these kinds of stories and communities is important. Representation matters and film is one way we can show other cultures and participate in major cultural conversations.

Compared to the rest of the movies nominated for Best Picture, “Parasite” had the lowest production budget.

The film, which cost about $11 million to produce, became Bong Joon-ho’s first film to gross over $100 million worldwide. The movie earned $167.6 million worldwide with $35.5 million made in the U.S.

“I feel like a very opportune moment in history is happening right now,” producer Kwak Sin Ae said through a translator.

The historic moment has angered some people who wish the award went to an American film.

Earlier during the award season, Bong Joon-ho stated that the Best Picture award was a local award. The statement, which caught everyone’s attention, was an unintentional drag of the Academy while also painting an honest picture of the award’s history.

The U.S. is how to the largest Korean diaspora community in the world. Around 2.2 million people in the U.S. identify as being of Korean descent. The Korean community makes up about 0.7 percent of the U.S. population. South Koreans make up 99 percent of those with Korean heritage living in the U.S.

Yet, a larger chorus of voices are praising the film and celebrating the historic win.
