Don Glover is the star of FX’s comedy series Atlanta. Over the weekend he premiered a music video entitled “This is America” that had everyone scratching their heads wondering what was the message behind the imagery? And why was he dancing like a male stripper?

  • IAmLawlessBrooks

    Riri lmfao sigh

  • Coy little wink

    Chile…this post is lacking…where is

    Nicki dressed as a tampon
    Cassie the matador to puffy the white bull
    Cardi B the moschino queen Marie Antoinette
    Solange in a hefty bag
    Jlo doing the stanky leg out usual
    2 chains proposing to his wife…thought they was already married?
    The motley bejeweled crew…I mean migos

    The model chick had her whole entire pucci out…

  • NeverSurprised

    I’m not a Cardi B fan, but I have to say her look was stunning. It did the impossible — made a pregnant, gang-affiliated ex-stripper look almost virginal.

  • E-VannaRootsAllEvil

    Gabby missed the whole point…

  • Yup, I said it

    “The Pope’s mistress” lol, oh the shadiness of it all.

  • Sista~Truth

    And we are supposed to think that their attire is ok? I sense hidden symbolism ?

  • ALLMINE?

    Rihanna looks like she’s lived a hard life.. wtf happened?

  • Ryan

    If anyone has any confusion about the imagery behind the “This is America” video – say, if you weren’t born in this country and chose not to learn African-American history, are not black (or don’t identify with being black), or are just willfully dumb but still have a couple of working brain cells – there are several sources that explain it if you look.

  • what?why

    Mess

  • Soon2BWife

    Gabby did something to her face.

  • Psychic Lulu

    Weight gain changes everything

  • Psychic Lulu

    You’re right in the money

  • Joy King

    Promise I didn’t even recognize Gabby at first glance. I know she has access to plenty money but between the bad lace front, dress and shoes I’m baffled. Her makeup is even looking suspect.

  • ALLMINE?

    That’s true.. weight gain looks good on some and terrible on others.. some people look older with it and some younger. Lol..

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    She fell off. That’s what happened.

  • abby500

    Her makeup is really bad. Anytime you are void of eyebrows you will look older. Whoever did her makeup needs to be straight FIRED. And the weight gain isn’t very flattering to her.

  • AHardAct2Follow

    Agreed. Her foundation is the wrong color and it looks like she recently tweaked her face and it hasn’t settled yet.

  • Jes

    Exactly!

  • Dun Dilly

    When you FUK the POPE to sleep and dip into his closet before you leave.

  • Gloria

    Oh hell no lmao Rihanna could’ve did way better. WTF. I’m so disappointed man.
    That don’t even look like Gabby tho. Hmmmmm.

  • Cap

    A used tampon at that lol

  • Cap

    Gabby just looks like she’s going to an evening dinner. Did she miss the memo or?

  • MRiGOThim

    Gabby the theme was “CATHOLIC IMAGINATION” she didn’t get the memo lmao

  • Malai

    It seems blasphemous

  • Blue

    oops. Get’ em together, Ryan. lol

  • ALLMINE?

    Very true.. Weight gain looks terrible on her

  • ALLMINE?

    Be nice..

  • Tiff J

    I like the dress. The color is beautiful against her skin. Just not right for this night. The shoes & lacefront are horrible.

  • MyaCompton

    Rhianna slayyyyeeedddddd!!!! Gorgeous…Gabi dress maybe basic But her skin is flawless!! Beautiful black woman!! Cardi B dress is too similar to Beyoncé ..pretty but seen it!! Sza looks gorgeous I also kind of like Katy Perry’s look…those wings were stunning! Rita Ora looked fabulous too!!

  • BeUtFullSoul

    …not “like one of the Pope’s mistresses”… oh my!

  • BeUtFullSoul

    uuuummm Gabby, is that YOU?….
    I almost didN’T recognise Your FACE.

  • BeUtFullSoul

    All of these dresses with split up to the WILD blue yonder! …What is going ON!

  • Hater

    Nicki looks better with less weight too, IMO

  • ShadesofEMPRESS

    Rihanna always take the cake. This beautiful bish is the Gala. I love Solange look as well.

  • ShelbyMoore

    People are just starting to see what I’ve always seen. Nothing happened really. She’s only morphing into her mother. She’s always been basic. The light skin and makeup usually makes ppl see beauty.

  • Zeta Phi Beta 1920

    Rihanna dressed like one of the Pope’s mistresses

    SANDY, THERE YOU GO AGAIN! YOU ARE HILARIOUS!

  • Zeta Phi Beta 1920

  • Toni Toni Toni

    Hahha, Pretyy mUch!!

  • Trace da Ace

    I really do not like RiRi getup….her makeup alone makes her look very chunky in the face…and that outfit looks hot as hell….Gabby..love the lace-front…but the dress was wayyy to yellow…cute tho. all other looks cute as well…and Sandy…..you really did not get the video for Childish Gambino??? Really?? That video had some powerful and thought provoking imagery in it….and his dancing….it was not one of stripper….lord forbid if a heterosexual man wants to dance….damn….I thought it was actually good.

  • Trace da Ace

    I agree…..

  • nick c

    Rihanna looks tired asf.

  • Kanyade

    Riri
    Chadwick Boseman (my huzzband)

    ——————–
    Best looks, IMO.

    Also, Donald Glover (star, creater, writer, producer of FX series Atlanta).

    Also, Donald Glover channeled Jim Crow poster-pose in music vidja.

  • Kanyade

    Really? I don’t see it. Maybe it’s the heavy bronzing/contour?

    Hard Life at 30 years old? Nah.. She looks goodt.

  • Kanyade

    it is overt symbolism, purposeful symbolism, Catholic symbolism—which was the theme, no? :)

  • Kanyade

    As did Kerry Washington. She looked pretty but there was nothing thematic about her look.

  • Simone

    I have a feeling Rih Rih ain’t going to age well.

  • Simone

    She will not age well.

  • Faithz

    For Real!!!!

  • Faithz

    Yea and no doubt the Best Mistress the Pope has ever dreamed about, I Bet
    Smh.

  • Faithz

    Cosigns You.

  • Faithz

    It’s a Great thing that Rihanna Know that a Real girls isn’t Perfect, and a Perfect Girl Isn’t real.

  • Faithz

    Split up to the Wild, I Love the way you
    Typed that, Smiling. U will have to use that saying.

  • Quitedeliteful

    I didn’t even recognize Gabby. Those face plumpers have her looking different but in a good way.

  • Quitedeliteful

    Rihanna dressed like one of the Pope’s mistresses
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    The Shade Is Real!!! LOLLOLLOL!!!!!!!!!! Everybody knows that the Pope only likes 12 year old hairless boys…

  • Vegas1989

    Ri Ri, better stop drinking, smoking and eating them Flammin Funyuns. She has put on a lot of weight….She is aging fast…..She can send the Flammin Funyuns this way…..Afternoon snack for here on the blog….LOL

  • Vegas1989

    Girl, you stupid….LOL…but you are telling the truth in my *Maury Voice *

  • ALLMINE?

  • Quitedeliteful

    LMBAOFFFFFFFFFFF!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • ALLMINE?

    She looks worn out to me. Still pretty but something is of

  • Vegas1989

    Gabby should have left her New York & Company dress at home and wore the theme of the event…..SMH

  • ALLMINE?

    Omg. Lol

  • ALLMINE?

    Nicki pulls it off better. I dunno why..

  • Quitedeliteful

    LOLLOLLOL!!!!!!!

  • Quitedeliteful

    Snicker…

  • Quitedeliteful

    Snicker….

  • TheOwley

    Absolutely. It’s sacrilegious what they’ve done. I don’t care what any of them wore. They were celebrating Baal right in the open.

  • Smith Jane

    Rihanna & Zendaya allll damn day!! Them bishes slaaaaaaaayed! Something is going on with Gabby’s hair or hairline. I hope it’s not the result of her haircare line lol. Black women got enough hair issues as is, lol so I hope her product don’t fawk with your edges lol

  • Smith Jane

    Lol yep

  • Zeta Phi Beta 1920

    lol!

  • Trace da Ace

    yaas!!! they sell them in the machine at work and I kills them…..

  • Trace da Ace

    *clutches pearls and gasps*

  • Kayke

    Riri’s dress looks like something my old rich aunties in FLA would wear….found the outfit at the church store and then had one of their seamtress/hat making friends make headgear to match. It’s a no for me. She’s been a no for me lately.

  • Kayke

    She use to be so beautiful to me, island girl beauty…..but the weight makes her look old and basic. It doesn’t fit her at all.

  • Tony

    Omg i love love zendaya! Where did you see her pics?bc she’s not on this thread..

  • Roxie Moxie

    *Sniffs* You can just SMELL the evil all up in that place. Wonder if they’re going to attend Marina Abramovic’s spirit cooking later? No?

    All this reminds me of is the movie Eyes Wide Shut. Creeeeeepy.

  • Quitedeliteful

    Snicker…

  • Dkwitty

    Lmao. She was pretty average before fame but the pro makeup and wardrobe really elevated her. Her body was amazing and she had beautiful eyes too. I don’t think it was the light-skinnedidness alone.

  • ShelbyMoore

    Yea, the eyes and the body were the addition….those three factors are what did it cause she has always been basic. People are only talking now cause she’s fluffy, but she looks exactly the same.

  • Nita

    Rih looks old and haggard smh that’s the worst I’ve ever seen her face look…maybe it’s the make up

  • Logan Roberts

    Sandra said dress like one of the Popes mistresses ??

  • Logan Roberts

    I was thinking this but ?

  • Faithz

    You said a mouth full!!

  • Lady_Elle

    rofl…. Yep!

  • Faithz

    You need to fall to yo knees in front of Rihanna
    and that Met Gala Outfit, and say the Lords Prayer out Loud for
    all of us to hear.

  • dontgetblocked

    I bet the beading on this dress is stunning in person. It’s gorgeous.

  • Junkanoo

    Rhianna looks possessed what in the hell is going on

  • pika12

    Baal, Yahweh, Jehovah, Allah, Horus…what difference does it make? It’s all a bunch of gods that dead human beings used their imagination to create…and humans are still worshiping gods they’ve never seen or spoke to personally. Why not have a little fun with the craziness? At least they are not getting rich off of religious, mind controlled people who think they are giving their money to a god meanwhile humans who are living better than them get to spend that money while the religious folks wait for a reward in the next life. Best scam in history!

  • TheOwley

    When I said Baal, I meant ‘demon’ Baal. Anyway, let me know how things go when you get on the other side.

  • pika12

    Are you judging me?

  • TheOwley

    Having a little crazy fun at someone else expense, particularly when it’s about religion is not acceptable. But no, I’m not judging you. Someone else is in charge of that.

  • pika12

    As a Christian shouldn’t you be praying for them instead of criticizing them? Same goes for me, shouldn’t you be praying that I wake up before I die instead of telling me that I’ll be on the other side after death? Do you also assume that all Muslims, Buddhists, Hindus, etc. , will be on the “other side” as well? One more thing, some humans viewed Baal as a god, just like Yahweh, not a demon. “Baal, god worshipped in many ancient Middle Eastern communities, especially among the Canaanites, who apparently considered him a fertility deity and one of the most important gods in the pantheon. … In Phoenician he was called Baal Shamen, Lord of the Heavens.” Britannica.com But , I know everyone believes that only the god they believe in and worship will lead them to paradise after death while all others who fail to pick the right god will suffer for eternity on the “other side.”

  • TheOwley

    You said: Why not have a little fun with the craziness? and “At least they are not getting rich off of religious, mind controlled people who think they are giving their money to a god meanwhile humans who are living better than them get to spend that money while the religious folks wait for a reward in the next life. Best scam in history! I think you are making too much of this.
    ———-

    Wether I’m a Christian or not, this is not about my behavior or my prayers. It is about MY observation on this event. I’m entitled to that opinion and you decided to jump in to claim I’m making too much of it.

    So what. What is it to you. Regardless of my feelings as a person of faith or if I’m not a person of faith, I respect other religions and don’t commit sacrilegious acts against them. That is all.

    We will all die one day and if there is a maker, we will face our maker or NOT. People need to take care of their own souls. It’s their responsibility, not mine. These people chose to piss all over the Catholic faith and all I said is they were wrong.

    What is it to you. Wrong or not, what difference does it make. I for one prefer not to engage in something I consider an abomination, not crazy fun. I can only pray God forgives all souls. The rest is up to Him.

  • pika12

    I pretty much agree with what you said. Right, you are entitled to your opinion BUT that does not make it a fact. Glad that you are acknowledging that it is only an opinion. BTW, if you really want to be respectful of all others religious beliefs you may want to stop referring to Baal as a demon.

  • TheOwley

    The name has been used to describe him, some people around the world don’t recognize or care about Jesus, and some people do worship demons, witches, satan, as part of their spiritual journey. It depends on one’s perspective. But this was in your face mocking and I merely express an opinion about it. It’s an opinion but I’m sure lots of Catholics are quite offended.

  • pika12

    My point is that some people worship Baal as a God and consider him as such. If you want to be respectful to Baal worship then you should refrain from referring to him as a demon when communicating with others. Maybe Baal is a demon in your opinion but that doesn’t make it fact. You referring to Baal as a demon is no different from a non-Christian referring to Jesus or Yahweh as a demon. You are the one who claimed to be respectful of all religions…so I’m just giving you a tip on how to be true to that claim.

  • TheOwley

    It’s as such in scripture. Why don’t you start there. Different meanings for those that know the Bible. But how about making it Satan instead, just for you. What’s your argument there, that it’s offensive to satanists.

  • pika12

    Yes! Just because the authors of your book of choice says that the god of their choice is the good god and refers to other beings as evil or demons does not make it so! All of these religions are based on information that comes from human beings, which can only lead to opinion as opposed to fact. The book about Yahweh (the Bible), and Jesus (the New Testament of the Bible) claim that they are the good gods and that Baal and Satan are bad. But some people don’t believe in or follow the Bible and you are being disrespectful by referencing their beliefs or gods as evil. BTW, the Old Testament does not actually refer to Satan as evil. Satan was one of the sons of God who was able to roam back and forth between heaven and Earth (see Job). During one of Satan’s trips to heaven, Yahweh suggested that he test Job and Satan did so at Yahweh’s instruction. The New Testament however completely changes the nature of Satan. Anyway, Satanists don’t believe that Satan is evil just like Baal worshipers don’t believe that Baal is an evil demon

  • TheOwley

    Whatevs. Get help with that.

  • pika12

    Here’s one way to interpret “scripture”:
    “The Book of Job is sometimes cited to support the claim that the Jewish view of Satan as an agent of God is different from the Christian view, which sees Satan as an autonomous force opposed to God. In the story, Satan inflicts suffering on a human being and seeks to induce him to sin — but only with God’s permission.”

    I would add that it was actually God’s idea in the first place. He specifically asked Satan if he had thought about testing Job and the friendly little conversation among the divine continued from there. BTW, I always refer to the original King James Version, some of the newer revisions have tried to clean up some of the questionable scriptures.with blatantly differing language.

  • pika12

    Get a clue.

  • TheOwley

    ok, thanks, bye.
