Rihanna Speaks to the World ” Pull Up!”

Rihanna received the NAACP President’s Award for her philanthropic  work at the NAACP Image Awards this past weekend. The star, who wore a purple Givenchy Haute Couture, was specifically honored for her fundraising efforts with various charities, including Raising Malawi, UNICEF, and Clara Lionel Foundation, the nonprofit organization she founded, which is devoted to emergency preparedness, in honor of her grandparents.

Rihanna’s acceptance speech included a powerful message for the audience. “I’m lucky I was able to start the Clara Lionel Foundation in 2012. And if there’s anything that I’ve learned, it’s that we can only fix this world together,”  “We can’t do it divided. I cannot emphasize that enough. We can’t let the de-sensitivity seep in. The, ‘If it’s your problem, then it’s not mine; it’s a woman’s problem; it’s a black people problem; it’s a poor people problem.”

“I mean, how many of us in this room have colleagues and partners and friends from other races, sexes, religions? Show of hands. Well, they want to break bread with you, right? They like you? Well, then this is their problem too. So when we’re marching and protesting and posting about the Michael Brown Jr.s and Atatiana Jeffersons of the world, tell your friends to pull up.”

The singer held nothing back as she continues to encourage the masses to do their part to make this world a better place. And this I why we Love Rihanna ok ok I do…

Instagram IGTV Creators can Monetize?

#GetSOM via @MsBoomNYC

After launching the longer-form content options, Instagram confirms to TechCrunch that it has internally prototyped an Instagram Partner Program that would let creators earn money by showing advertisements along with their videos. By giving creators a sustainable and hands-off way to generate earnings from IG, they might be inspired to bring more and higher quality content to the platform.

The program could potentially work similarly to Facebook Watch, where video producers earn a 55% cut of revenue from “Ad Breaks” inserted into the middle of their content. There’s no word on what the revenue split would be for IGTV, but since Facebook tends to run all its ads across all its apps via the same buying interfaces, it might stick with the 55% approach that lets its say creators get the majority of cash earned.

Make that Money!


Instagram may finally let IGTV video makers earn money

T.I Podcast

T.I has received major backlash for remarks he recently made on the Podcast “Ladies Like Us” regarding his 18 yr old Daughter’s visits to the Gynecologist.

The Atlanta rapper and entrepreneur stated he makes sure his daughter’s hymen “Isn’t broken” and went on to explain a time he went with her for a check up.

“So it’s this one time we go, I think this might have been after her 16th birthday,” he explained in audio captured by TMZ. “This is what we do… Usually, like the day after the [birthday] party, she’s enjoying her gifts. I put a sticky note on the door: ‘Gyno. Tomorrow. 9:30.’ So we’ll go and sit down and the doctor will come and talk and the doctor’s maintaining a high level of professionalism.”

As a result, the women who conduct the podcast Nazanin Mandi and Nadia Moham have taken the episode down and issued an apology for not properly handling the situation.

“To everyone confused, angry and hurt by the recent episode of Ladies Like Us, we want to start off by saying that we sincerely apologize for our knee jerk reaction to the uncomfortable topic,” an Instagram post reads. “We were completely caught off guard/shocked and looking back, we should have reacted much differently in the moment.”

 Mandi and Moham continued, “The comments that were made and the reaction that followed are not in any way a reflection of our personal views on the topic. We support and love Women and feel that their bodies are theirs to do as they wish. There was absolutely no ill intent towards any party involved & feel deeply awful about the entire incident.

“We are not perfect, take full accountability of our lack of action & are continuously learning along the way. We know an apology doesn’t make this go away but we welcome the discussion – that’s what our podcast is about.”

The rapper has yet to respond but social media is in an uproar calling him controlling and narcissistic, I’m sure he will be making a remark soon.
