Drake consoles Travis Scott

Rapper Drake was cut off mid-sentence during his acceptance speech after picking up his award for best rap song for "God's Plan" at the 61st Annual Grammy Awards on Sunday night.

The Canadian rapper surprised the audience by emerging from under the stage to personally accept his trophy. But rather than thank record label execs or his mother, the sensitive rapper took a moment to console fellow rap artist Travis Scott, who lost the 3 awards he was nominated for.

Drake consoles Travis Scott

To date, Scott, 26, has received six Grammy nominations with no wins in his brief but remarkable rap career. Drake - who was also snubbed early on his career - felt Scott's pain from the podium.

Drake, 32, told the audience that his 4th Grammy win was "the first time in Grammy history where I actually am who I thought I was for a second, so I like that."

Drake consoles Travis Scott

He urged "the kids watching, those aspiring to do music, and all my peers that make music from their heart, that do things pure and tell the truth" to "know we play in an opinion-based sport, not a factual-based sport. It is not the NBA."

Then he turned his attention to a devastated Scott sitting in the audience.

"This is a business where sometimes it is up to a bunch of people that might not understand what a mixed race kid from Canada has to say, or a brother from Houston right there, my brother Travis. You’ve already won if you have people who are singing your songs word for word, if you are a hero in your hometown. If there is people who have regular jobs who are coming out in the rain, in the snow, spending their hard-earned money to buy tickets to come to your shows, you don’t need this right here, I promise you, you already won."

A second later, during mid-sentence, the Grammys cut to a commercial - leaving the television audience to assume Drake's mic was cut for some shade he threw at the Academy.

According to Variety.com, when the Grammys cut Drake's mic, "a groan from the media room could probably be heard all the way into the arena."

via Variety --

Coming back to the press room after the segment, presenters Dan + Shay seemed unaware Drake had been cut short. Whether he knew or not, Drake wasn’t in a hurry to leave; he was seen later bopping to a performance by pal Travis Scott.

After the show, a representative for the Grammys clarified that producers did not intentionally cut off Drake but were under the impression that he had finished his speech.

    Travis did look dejected when his name was not called (the shady camera man panned to a shot of him and Kylie) His performance was bizarro to me *shrugs* In terms of past shows this one was pretty decent and I think Alicia Keyes did a good job as host. Jennifer Lopez doing the Motown tribute made no damn sense and I could have done without seeing her shake her bon-bon incessantly. I am still not sure how Cardi B won for best rap album but I may just be a hater(??) *kanye shrug*

  • Braxton P. Hartnabrig

    You've got to respect my fellow light skin brothern @ChampagnePapi. That was some TRU words of wisdom and advise. Travis you from Missouri City, TX and you on top of the rap game. And you got a Jenner baby mama. So you got two W's

  • Gloria

    Travis will continue to be just fine with or without a grammy. Still shocked that they gave Cardi B 'Best Rap Album.' That shows how insignificant the award is right there.

  • iWasteTime

    The Grammy's were the Grammy's last night. Especially with album of the year. Bae consoled everyone. He knew what it was and what it was going to be.
    He said OUT LOUD what most artist have been saying about the Grammy's the last decade.

  • http://www.legalizemelanin.com Legalize Melanin

    Huh? So he's winning just cause he knocked up a blackfishing white chick? Ook

  • http://www.legalizemelanin.com Legalize Melanin

    Oh well. F*ck Travis in my opinion. He lost me when he rapped "Baby mama hit forbes and now b*tches mad" cause his cooning a** couldn't comprehend that Black women were upset the REAL 1st young female REAL billionaire who was black didn't make the cover and it was instead given to a white ALMOST billionaire instead. Travis can take his long face a** somewhere cause he gets no sympathy or handclaps from me.

  • jazmine

    If Grammy's don't matter and yall don't care about them why yall submitting your songs for considerations?

  • AmericanDream

    If I were an artist ( singer or actor) I honestly wouldn’t give a crap about these vanity objects known as awards because, having your work known and consumed by as many people as possible is a lot more rewarding that some little trophy

    What’s more important selling a lot of records and concert tickets or winning some dumb ass Grammy ? Having your movie known all over the world or winning an Oscar because of some obscure movie no one has heard about ? Look at the fast and furious movie franchise , it prints money and it’s known the world over. I doubt any of the parties involved the franchise ( producers , actors and fans ) lose any sleep over its lack of Oscar nomination.

  • Vonn

    The grammys are officially dead. TOD... j.lo's performance. DNR!!!

  • rockstar2142

    So happy cardi won!!!! And I’m glad they did square biz in the Motown tribute. R.I.P teena Marie.

  • Fire & Ice

    In 2019 folks still believe these rigged award shows are real?!?!.

  • Russiancreme

    So did Cardi really lip sync her whole rap performance?

  • ClaireHuxtable

    LOL! Any Black man with $2000 in the bank can do that.

  • free

    will travis' eyes burn out if he looks up?

  • kylla williams

    Soo the Grammy’s are only credible when the ppl you all like wins? Like cardi or not her album slaps. She picked good singles and has personality. All this reminds me of how everybody tried dismissing Rihanna. Listen not everyone cares about who writes what except for stand. The average person looking for plain old good music

  • Vonn

    Me too. It was a tribute to Motown, which is famous for it's sound. Motown Sound!! Not only did they chose someone with a weak singing voice, it's a voice with no "soul." They didn't need to add Latin flavor to a Motown tribute, nor her jiggling. Disgraceful. If they wanted to showcase her they could simply let her sing a medley of her own songs...That ppl wrote for her.

  • ClaireHuxtable

    LUV TM! She deserved much more credit. Gone waay too soon.

  • ClaireHuxtable

    Jlo? That wasn't just a rumor? It was true?!! They may as well had Taylor Swift do it.

  • MrsSpice1

    Award shows nowadays are absolute garbage...which deflects the state of music the industry is aiming to promote and deflect these days u have to dig and research music that is actually worth listening to. #NWO

    cardi project ain't shit compared to some of the nominees in her category. you gotta know bullshit when you see it.

  • jazmine

    Hello! IOP slaps it had three number one songs and honestly I like it should’ve gotten a nod. But whatever fake woke lol

  • free

    it's actually gotten to the point where they ain't even trying. surprise kanye didn't win something this year lol

  • Tinytoon

    Nope, not a rumor but a true nightmare.

  • Vonn

    They should have just played some actual Motown footage.

  • Rayne

    Welp, now that that’s out of the way who got bullchit. Cause my day started last Friday ???? when a female employee groped my friend Steve ding a ling. And it’s about to go thee fawk down up in ‘?’CHERE!!

    Now, where are my firing heels ?. ????????

  • ClaireHuxtable

    Yes! Plus a lot of the Old Heads are still living like Smokey, Diana, etc. They could have sung.

  • ClaireHuxtable

    That bad, huh?

  • Fire & Ice

    IKR ?

  • Thingamajig

    Lol... please let us know what happens after you beat her up... lol.

  • VanillaCaramel2shotsExpresso

    They cut off the several artist who talked about equality, being true to yourself, and being united. Once that music comes in they need you also to sit your arse down . That was the problem in the end they ran out of darn time. I was not appreciative of JLo either . Not because she was Hispanic and we have several black artist who can sing and dance , I think she cheapened it . She should have saved it for Vegas . Cardi was cut offs because she took too long .... bless her nervous arse. She darned near pee peed on herself . I like her a little more !

  • Vonn

    Understandable. The show has been pretty dry for years.

  • Yardgirl

    The Grammys is obviously pandering to the Hispanic base. It started with the opening act and then the Motown tribute. Nothing against them but you cannot sing for the Motown sound!! FOH!!

  • ClaireHuxtable

    Her pickle fell and she was looking for it?

  • tia

    He is such an lame a@@ for saying that in his speech. According to a Google search he has accumulated about 161 awards and has won about 5 or so Grammy's already? He is such a hypocrite..after he's won accolades he tells others not to aspire for any trophies?? Dude go sit down somewhere. After the fact and being in the game forever; what a horrible thing for him to even advise to these new artists. wow, what a complete imbecile.

  • rockstar2142

    Yeah so true. Most definitely never got her due.

  • Navybeans95

    Beauty is in the eye of the beholder...so is music/art...what some think is gold others may see trash...that's why Awards shouldn't matter ...I don't watch, but I do come here to read all about it...

  • Rayne

    Ion know why women down to my job want to get meat where they make their bread ?
    It’s ridiculous!

  • SunRiseBlossom

    As long as I was able to stay awake long enough to see Fantasia perform... I have nothing else to say!!! Lol... She looked beautiful and sound amazing as always!!!

  • ShelbyMoore

    I was all for Cardi taking Nicki down a notch or two because of her shatty attitude, but they have gone too far. This is wild! https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/86351225289b2f990bf8750f4517a3db5cd16b64396fdb0b15e871c6d9c5cf51.gif

  • Kanyade

    i caught the chloe and halle performance, the fantasia, yolanda and audra performance, two lanky white wimmenz (one on guitar) performance, cardi winning best rap ablum, childish gambino winning best song (he warn't there though) and the country singer winning ablum of the year.

  • Rayne

    I’m getting my words together! I’m just tired of these hoes in here being crazy cause a man is fine. ( there are plenty of them here too, just being fine for no reason ? just look and keep it pushing)

  • ClaireHuxtable

    That woman could blow!

    That word is sooo hilarious to me. Nigh she KNOW she wrong fa dat???

  • tia

    Well, I'm glad Cardi won best album and not Post Malone. The "sprites" hate us, but love our culture and the accolades that come with it. Good for her!!

  • Kimberly King

    Who the hell cares. His white devil he brags about can console who.

  • Russiancreme

    I didn't take it as hypocritical. Him having so much accolades is why it's so important what he said. Travis scott didn't win best rap album, but he just got off a sold out arena tour where regular folks were singing his songs word for word. So the 'losers' really are winners.

  • ClaireHuxtable

    Gurrl! Don't they know you don't $#!t where you eat?! They'll learn...
    This girl at my old job was going with a married man at the job. What you bet they almost got k1lled in a car accident one night.

    Gotta watch Fanny nem singing. Eyes got heavy. I only made it through to see A.Keys who ROCKED it. Cardi, Janelle, and Imma gone head and SAY it Miley did the damn thing. Dont @ me. Destiny Hope got them vocals. Loved her with Dolly, and Jolene is one of my fave Dolly songs.

  • Vonn

    Smokey sang with her a little bit & he introduced the performance. Diana performed too, but not for the Motown tribute. BoysIImen, fantasia, Anita Baker, any neo-soul singer with a soulful voice would have been a better choice. Jennifer is a performer, a singer was needed for this tribute.

  • Topic Influencer

    His fellow brother in law Kanye been hurt over it more than once.

  • xenaD

    He was shading tf outta the Grammys right up in their faces... he made a reference to Cardi & somebody else I forgot! Guess he assumed she wasn’t going to win, but his speech was correct lol

  • Renee26

    WOW... Get huh!!

  • MsPam

    These rappers kill me, they claim not to care about the Grammy awards but the get mad because they don’t win! Pick one!

  • HotInCleveland

    The hell?!

  • BingBangBoom

    Travis must already know he is ugly.. That's why he covers his mouth/face alot. Him and Kylie deserve each other. Dude is straight white washed and frankly I'm over the dude.

  • tia

    if he really felt some type of way, he should have gave up THAT PARTICULAR award and bestowed it upon Travis or one of the other artists that were nominated. Or just gave it up period. He's slighting the honor; yet, accepting of it at the same time? That's kinda of confusing?? The message was good, but the messenger is just questionable to me. You have a good point tho.

    Wasnt Drake job to shame the Grammy's. As he is NOT OF THIS COUNTRY...it was actually rude. You dont go to someone else house and insult them. Grammy's are overseen by National Recording Academy. Ie the USA RECORDING ACADEMY. Carry your ass to the Canadian version of the Grammy's (Juno Awards I think) and voice your opinion.

    - Ok.... Queen should have been nominated. They tried it soooo bad. I like Cardi and i have her album but i found myself streaming Queen and singing along. Plus Nicki writes her music.

    - Scorpion was sooooo good. But RNB side was the best.
    -AstroWorld was dope. Good turn ups and turn downs
    -Sweetner is a pop classic full of bops.

    Queen was trash. Cosign.

    They were both out on leave for a lonng time too. You try and play it off when they come back to work, but you wanna say..."How could ya be soo st00pid?"

  • SunRiseBlossom

    Yes I agree!!! The perfect trio... it was tasteful and beautifully done!

  • BingBangBoom

    He is ugly! Then has the nerve to bleach his braids. Yeah we really know what that means.

  • Topic Influencer

    Question that nobody can answer me.

    How Chloe X Halle surpass the McClain Sisters (China, Sierra and Lauryn)? They have damn near the same exact resume:
    From ATL
    Tyler Perry ties
    Disney. Hell China had her own show.

    Like what happened? Beyonce? Is that why? If so...dats some bullshit.

  • Anji

    As a member of NARAS, yes, Grammys need change but you're right Drake should be glad to be invited to the party as a Canadian. NARAS will be diversified if young, eligible members join and participate. It has evolved a bit since I joined but nowhere near enough.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    Me neither. I just took it as: "Hey, awards are nice, but having a loyal fan base that loves you is way more imprtant than any award."
    He's basically telling Travis to keep his head up. I thought that was really good of him.

  • SpiceGirl

    Not alone.....I didn't watch either

  • SpillyNillie

    I actually look forward to his IG posts...he's hilarious and he makes me smile!

  • SpiceGirl

  • Crazy tee

    Me either ?????

  • Renee26

    Yeah me too... He's a performer rapping and singing songs written by others over beats produced by others so he's right. The industry thrives on opinions instead of raw talent. I like his music but he can't take all the credit for his success.

  • SpillyNillie

    I didn't watch...never do...but based on the comments, the performances sound amazing...

  • Kayke

    The Grammys know his numbers are as real as Kylie’s IG followers.

    Crazy. My "workplace mess" story: 2 employees came back to the job after going on a date... Friday night, 11pm.. (Too cheap to rent a hotel maybe...) Dude uses his keys and access code to reopen the office. Off-site security team sees them on camera going into a conference room to have sexx. Monday morning they both get fired. Now they're both jobless... Two months later, word gets back to us that she's pregnant. ??

  • Yardgirl

    Just seeing this question. So I thought I had imagined a spot where she was gyrating without moving her lips and I heard her "singing"!!! I did not care enough to RW the spot to see if I was right but now you are making me go "hmmmmm" What is the buzz are people saying she did lip sync??

  • tia

    Right..

  • Anji

    Truth however many people in various fields enjoy accolades from a group of their peers. I think it's more a tradition. Though in my 20 s I paid nods no mind, now I look back and appreciate as I now recognize it's just one way a long, dedicated career was acknowledged by my industry.

  • Evillene

    I actually thought Dolly got short-changed. They had all those vocally challenged pop-tarts singing her songs. Andra Day should've sung "Jolene."

  • Kayke

    That’s not what’s happening. Who wants an award that’s not meant for them? Giving them the trophy doesn’t mean they won it. He was strictly speaking to the beginning of his career where he knows what it feels like to believe in his music and not receive any awards for it. Drake at the time probably made that snubbing define some part of his life. He’s telling Travis not to do that....that if he can sell out an arena, the people love him and the Grammy isn’t what made that happen so don’t let not getting the award define his music successes.

  • R in NYC

    Best Grammy show I've seen in awhile. Cardi killed it during her performance. The Aretha Franklin tribute was fiyah. Fantasia showed out as usual. The surprise appearance of Michele Obama was great.

    I thought she looked a hot mess the whole time. I was forced to watch the Grammys (hubby turned it on loud enough to make ignoring it impossible) and was not feeling that weird leather looking baggy pant suit, her legs-wide-open 2 piano performance, that strange two shades of red pant suit/cape combo, none of it. Part of me is a hater (I don't support home wreckers) and part of me thought she hard core missed the mark fashion wise.

    The only saving grace was Fantasia. She was killing 'em (yeah, I kmow Fanny's a home wrecker too. That's just my hypocrisy rearing it's ugly head).

  • Yardgirl

    Say word?? And this is the person who gets best rap album???? Deep sigh!! You can’t make this shit up!! ?????

  • Fire & Ice

    The winners are already chosen, before the nominees are even announced. These things are negotiated behind the scenes, with record lables, producers, managers, etc. Sometimes those fake awards are given out as a favor, that somebody owed.

  • VernadineTheQueen?

    I like Drake, he seems like he was raised right. lol He has manners in public anyways.

  • lovelygamour

    So he thought if he did the super bowl he would be rewarded with a grammy. No, you just lost a ton of press forever. He will forever be known as the overproduced super bowl 2019 rapper.
    Drake didnt win cause the song was good he won cause he showed charity work. And his speech was lame cause he doesnt write his own verses he collects from others.
    Anyway i'm tired of all of them. That whole kanye world is stale. Travis wasnt old enough to do the superbowl without heat.
    Cardi b win is another example of how you can buy a grammy. Just like mackelmore.

  • NewNew

    Hey girl hey! ?
    It was good! I slept well all weekend and then last night i didn't get a wink. I'm so dam? tired I don't know what to do with myself ??. Gotta keep on keeping on, as they say. At least it's a balmy 30 degrees today (oh the sarcasm).

    How are you? Do anything eventful? Got any fun stories to share? Keep me awake AW, it's a struggle!!

  • Logan Roberts

    Travis please grow up, sulking over some damn gold plated trophies.

  • NewNew

    Ugh, you told me your weekend was uneventful and then I asked if you did anything eventful. See how tired I am? LAWD! https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/a1d1627954e157fe5ca12c8301aef18a0050a03302bc82c92cb5859403ba301e.gif

  • lovelygamour

    They have to be paying for pr. Someone is craftly sneaking them in and its been over a period of years. However once regular people realize they performed at that superbowl it will forever tarnish their "aesthetic". Just like travis they arent old/established enough to take that hit.

  • lovelygamour

    Yeah I dont hold fantasia accountable because she went into a cell phone store and fell in love. Alicia sat around for months flirting, then taunted the wife.

  • lovelygamour

    And wayne was her and drakes ghostwriters. I can always tell when he has a hand in their albums. Especially nicki's.

  • Scorpio

    Diana Ross, I felt could have done a melody of her hits, especially the up tempo songs and closed with the low energy songs that she sang. But she should have come out with, If there's a cure for this, I don't want it, went into Upside Down, I'm coming out. It was her career diamond recognition and Birthday, but she was blahhh.

  • NewNew

    I don't have a reason why i've let Fanny off the hook. But at least she didn't plot and plan like she-who-will-not-be-named.

  • Scorpio

    I agree Alicia was weird, and that leather outfit looked like it was at the back of her closet never worn from 1993 and she found an occasion to wear it.

  • KcoolMuziq

    i was ABSOLUTELY shocked when Drake strutted out after he SWORE he would NEVER attend another Grammy show. Because they would never nominate him in a category he felt he deserved to win in.

    I can imagine his envy when TRIPLE THREAT Childish Gambino won record & song of the year. He is SLAYING the industry right now.

    Congrats to Donald Glover. who is NEVER given much coverage here. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/0ef6fc08ad1026df2b14f84cddb08b228b10a9a87bbde6ae77017bc66dff65f1.jpg

    He was belittling them. He couldve got his point across in a less patronizing way.

  • lovelygamour

    When watching too many '90s movies go wrong. Lol.

  • Marlika

    ????? I can see why she kicked him on his face. Who would want her Hulk Hogan looking ass? She’s very hard on the eyes.

  • Skin Deep Beauty

    So what!!

  • lovelygamour

    Awards used to help your movie/album be remembered but in todays world who cares. Its all bought anyways.

  • lovelygamour

    I was just thinking that. I understand country sings applying but if I was a rapper I wouldnt try. Its going to be someone affliated with the core crew.

  • Anji

    Wow. Guess my or my colleagues votes don't count. Money moves the world, but I haven't noted this phenomenon becoming a driving force...as far as "favors" go.

  • Anji

    Drake's showing up ssurprised me also. Guess he's fickle about alleged causes. Yes, Donald is multifaceted and it's refreshing.

  • Andrea Williams

    Poor baby! I hope your week is not too taxing. I was so laid back, I didn't even watch the grammy's. I said that I would come here to read the comments. Lol, you never disappoint.

  • Fire & Ice

    I don't believe anything in Hollyweird is real. These "winners" are already chosen, before nominees or fake ballots, ever go out.

  • KLo

    Glad Travis Scott reaped what he sow. Krama is a mf. He shucked and jived for massa when he performed at the Super Bowl and thought he was well on his way for many Grammy awards. He thought he was the shyt and couldn't tell that BAN nothing. BAN sold himself #ROFLMFAO

  • Chaseboogie The Prince

    I'm glad Drake said things that were from his heart, but I can't stand when someone doesn't support the awards, claim not to want them, but show up and dis them. Drake if winning a grammy is no big deal, why didn't you keep your behind home. Don't go the award show and get high and mighty while holding your award. If you don't like the grammys or think they are full of bs, don't show up.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    He was tipped off that he would win.

  • Russiancreme

    I didnt watch the show live only clips later so I cant say for sure. But they saying she lip synced.

  • Andrea Williams

    A whole 30 degrees NewNew? Lawd, my bones already got something against me as it is. 30 degrees would just send them right on over the edge if I had to go out in it. My knees would be like "Girl, what you doing?" Today it is going to be about 75 degrees so I am not mad. The funny thing is though, Wednesday, it is only going as high as 50. Our weather fluctuates. The most eventful thing that I am doing nowadays is cooking my Sunday on Saturday so I don't have to be bothered on Sunday. I meant to watch some movies on my stick, but somehow I never got around to it. Oh well.

  • Chaseboogie The Prince

    Okay. Thanks.

  • GirlSixx

    Nah, Fannie wasn't a home wrecker she got finessed from jump by ole boy. He pretended to be all in love with her, got her pregnant, went back to the wife and sued Fannie for joint custody and now they collecting child support from her.

    Wow! That's all the way messed up. Was the wife in on it. That's terrible. Well good, i can love Fantasia without feeling like a hypocrite now. Thanks GirlSixx!

    Travis was noticeably hurt, no lie I thought he was going to win. But again, that's what happens when you allow them yt folks to validate you. Enjoy the parties, good food and free chit Travis....

  • Ain’t Misbehavin

    He misplaced his priorities... no sympathy here.

  • Shira Harding-James

    You didn’t think so? Lol
    I thought she was fun

  • NewNew

    She might have done fine. I don't know. I just don't like her so I tuned her out. I also wanted her to close her legs (to married men, just kidding - jokes!) During the 2 piano performance. She is talented though. I can't deny that.

  • rockstar2142

    I just couldn’t get into it but I loved the one before that the pink print.

  • TMW

    I predict that in the near future, Black entertainers will totally boycott the Grammy’s. They had Alicia host hoping it would draw in the black audience. I heard she was great, but I didn’t watch any of it.

  • Y me?

    Drake is lovely to look at but he needs to keep his mouth shut

  • Strappyheels
  • MSGREENMINUSTHEENVY

    LMAO!!!!! IM DONE!

  • Good day

    Drake needs to stop stuffing his face! I thought this was DJ Khaled when I first saw these.

  • NewNew

    I just had a cup of coffee and i am wired. How do people drink this stuff day in and day out? Ugh. I oive pretty much caffeine free so my body is freaking out right now. At least i'm awake.

    I would be outside practically naked if it were 75 degrees here. Soak it up for me!

  • NewNew
  • Andrea Williams

    Practically naked? You must not want to talk to me anymore because my neighbors would be chunking some bricks at me and calling the popo to say put some clothes on, lol. Speaking of coffee, I drink this one that is good for you and it is caffeine free. My niece turned me on to it years ago. It is called Organo gold black coffee. It is made from ganoderma mushrooms I think. It is SO good and you feel good after drinking it with no caffeine jitters. They .also have green tea, latte and hot chocolate. I drink mine with International Delight Cinnabon creamer. I had been telling old boy for years how good it is.Now he drinks it sometimes twice a day. I had to drag him kicking and screaming. Look it up and see if it might fit your needs. A box of 30 packets, if you order from the right people, it can cost about 15.00. Order wrong and it can cost you about 30.00 which still averages out to 1.00 a cup but .50 a cup IS better.

  • NewNew

    Thanks for the tip! I actually hate the taste/smell of coffee and only drink it twice a year (at most) when I'm too tired to function. It makes me feel very jittery but the alternative is sleeping on the job. I have a ton of green tea in my office as we speak, some really great quality stuff. But tea wasn't gonna cut it today.

    Tell your neighbors to mind their business, it's warm and you'll run naked if you want to, dammit! ?

  • Andrea Williams

    Girl.......You so stupid. The visual of me doing that is way too much. Btw, I meant to tell you that we have a raccoon trying to get on my last nerve. I had to stop feeding my cat outside because his big behind was eating the cat's food AND drinking his water. Child, looking at me shoveling the food in his mouth with five fingers. I am trying to figure out where did he come from? I live in the city not the country. We don't live by the woods or anything so I don't know but he is a mess.

  • Louisville Is4TheBirds

    Not a BAN! Lmao

  • NewNew

    I HATE raccoons! I hate the way they walk and their human-like hands. I hate how bold and confrontational they are. If i see one on the street then it owns the street. One tried to fight my cat back in the day and my poor baby didn't come home for 3 days messing with those demons. Pouring ammonia around your trash keeps them away but yes, the cat will have to eat inside for the time being.

  • teather

    Trav just learned that any association with that family is deathly. Any advice from that family is not based on true talent with a true career. I do feel badly for him but not really. He made the decision to mess with that family. Let this be a cautionary tale to those who choose to go that route. He also spited everyone and performed at the Sbowl, which surely was Kris' idea. Drake need not give anyone advice about anything. Next.

  • teather

    You're right. He did do that. What I think though is that some of these folks do it purposely so that they can say what they have to say to a larger audience. We can simply think he was busy and unable to do attend, but surely wanted to. Best he showed up and spoke his mind so there's no question.

  • teather

    That's exactly what we should do. The Grammy's need us not the other way around. Look at the Oscars, too, they needed some black guy to do it and got nothin'! Good! They need to know their lives would be total BS w/o us in it! :)

  • JustB

    Travis is a grown man...he should have saved his tears for home and pillow talk with his baby mother...

    Morning NewNew..........Let me make you laugh about the raccoon situation. Old boy works for the post office and they see a lot of coons at some of their post offices. So he got a cage from his supervisor to try and trap him. One of those automatic door shut things. I asked well if you catch him, what are you going to do with him, let him loose in the woods or something? He said no.....his supervisor has a friend that WANTS TO EAT HIM. Girl, lol I was just dead! You can't make this ish up. If this doesn't say you are in the south, nothing does. I want him gone not eaten. Their hands are creepy as hell. I noticed that when he was standing there looking me in my face and shoveling the food in his mouth with his "hands". I thought to myself, NewNew should get a kick out of this.

  • NewNew

    Ha! I'm intrigued and repulsed all at the same damñ time. Skin the raccoon, ok. Stuff the raccoon, creepy but alright. Eat it? Lord have mercy.

    The only animals that should have hands are humans and primates. The rest of them need to quit with the ridiculousness. I believe he looked you dead in the eye because they are bold as hel?. Ugh. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/51d60207ef0e492e842dc2ae9989ee40c181952c3270702dc20e3a360d5f4a18.jpg

  • NewNew

    You are so right. I was confused by the blond helmet Andra was wearing and wasn't too excited by the garter belt stockings either. To each his own though. I like Yolanda too but as far as I'm concerned Fantasia sang the whole song alone. She was the only memorable one at least. She looked fabulous as well.

  • AListDiva29

    Please Travis's career wasn't going super great until Pimp Mama Kris and her coven came along! He probably won't of gotten this much attention if it hadn't been for her being his manager and getting him booked for the Superbowl! We mostly all hate them, but these Kartrashian's make ish happen! Wondering when his downfall will be after he cheats on her and they start trashing him?

  • Andrea Williams

    I KNEW you would get a kick out of this. He was bold now. He didn't even run off of the porch when I opened the door. A coon is considered by some (not me)to be a delicacy. When I was a teenager, I spent some time in the country with my friend's family. That was the first time that I was introduced to a baked coon. First and last time cause NewNew, when my friend showed me that baked coon in the roaster, it looked just like my little dog that I had at the time. Girl, my eyes was as big as saucers and all that I could think of was my dog Muffin. Lol, THAT weekend was too murch, not much, murch. It is funny NOW but not then. That picture of your boy passed out on the floor was almost me. Oh, did I mention that they left the skinned head on and the feet? Muffin personified!

  • NewNew

    Yuck yuck yuckity yuck! Wish I had Michelle Obama's "eww" meme for this comment. I wouldn't eat my dog-looking creature either. I'm not southern & there are definitely a few things y'all eat that I can't get with. Chitterlings, fat back and pig's feet are at the top of the list.

    My mother and I traveled to South Carolina for her college roommate's wedding back in the early 90's. We visited with the bride's family for a bit and I'll never forget when her older aunty offered us some fat back, put it on the plate and left the kitchen. My mom turned to me and slapped my hand saying "don't you eat that!". We laugh about it to this day.

  • Andrea Williams

    Morning NewNew.........LOl, "she put some fatback on the plate and left the kitchen"! Girl, she was sooooo wrong for that. Fatback IS NOT to be eaten like that. It can season the hell out of a pot of vegetables though. I guess when you saw the fatback, you was like "what the hell? That's how I would have been looking, southerner or not. Your mom had the right idea..don't you eat that! LMAO. On a side note, I was actually born in Columbia, SC where I learned about a lot of things pertaining to food. My mom before she passed in 2006, used to cater parties for the "hoity toity" so I Iearned from her about some of the finer things pertaining to food. I had to go to my grandmother to learn about "down home cooking" cause that was not my mom's thing. I am grateful for what I learned from both. It is a blessing that you still have your mom to laugh with. Treasure every moment that you have with her because I miss hanging out with my mom every day.

  • NewNew

    Awww! I like you AW. We would get along in 'real life'. I'm sorry to hear about your mother. I can't imagine how that must feel. I'm glad that your mom and grandma were able to show you both sides of the spectrum. It's so important to be well rounded and that's what they gave you. You are so blessed.

    Mine is the same way. She's sophisticated and cultured and exposed me to all of that. My grandma lives in the Caribbean and can cure what ails you just with the plants/fruits in her garden and what grows wild in the area. I'll never know all that she knows. The new generation isn't in tune with the earth the way she is. Was doing some research and realized that all the traditional caribbean foods I
    grew up eating and drinking as a kid have curative/medicinal properties. No wonder they're so healthy! Grandma swears she gains 10 pounds the moment she gets off the plane in America, our food is so processed and disgusting. I hope i have useful things to pass on to my future children, God willing.

    If we ever met for lunch in the 'real world' i bet we'd be chatting for hours.

    Oh, i almost forgot! My husband was telling me last night that some big fat squirrel was in our trash eating the remnants of our Cheesecake factory cake and licking the fork. Looked him dead in rhe eye while he did it and wouldn't leave even after being shooed away. These critters are so bold! At least his hands weren't human . . .

  • Andrea Williams

    I like you too NewNew. I think that we would get along also. The reason that the B. Smith story had me riled up is because that is how I lost my mom. As close as we were, in the end she didn't even know me. It is a horrible, horrible disease. But, LMAO at the squirrel. We have them too but ours are more comical than anything. Once a squirrel got into my brother-in-laws boat, child he was standing straight up there with his "hands" on the steering wheel. Too funny. Or every time my mom planted flower bulbs, the squirrels dug them up. It was a time. I am going to assume that the cheesecake factory has good food? We don't have one here. I have been wondering about that ever since I saw them on my show.....The big bang theory. Well, they must be good cause your squirrel likes them, lol. How about Darrell caught a squirrel instead of the coon. Girl we heard the trap snap shut and we thought we got him now! Went to look and it was a squirrel. Thank God he doesn't know anyone who wants to eat him. He was set free. Whew! I bet he won't be back. Squirrels and coons don't have to worry about us eating them no m'aam. I may be in the South, but I am a city girl thank you very much.
