Ice Cube was a guest on "Cocktails With Queens" hosted by Claudia Jordan this week.

Ice Cube, real name O'Shea Jackson, explained why he declined to jump on a call with Democratic VP candidate Kamala Harris.

"I'm here for both administrations. I'm here to talk about the contract with Black America," he said.

He said he declined to participate in a Zoom call with Harris and 12 other celebrities because he spent a lot of time putting together his Contract with Black America. He added that the call with entertainers wouldn't be productive.

"I felt like our plan is so broad that you can't talk about it with twelve other people who had nothing to do with it," he said.

The rapper-turned-director said he was promised a call with Harris to discuss his CWBA, but he never received that call from her.

In previous statements, he said the Biden/Harris camp told him they would get back with him after the election.

Jackson said the Republicans were willing to speak to him about his CWBA.

He said he spoke with the Democratic National Committee (DNC) and they never got around to discussing his Contract with Black America.

Jackson complained about the 'Queens' hosts talking over him (particularly LisaRaye and Vivica A. Fox) who weren't listening to what he has to say.

LisaRaye McCoy is so real and says whatever is on her mind. But sometimes being real can lead to hurt feelings.

LisaRaye gave Da Brat a piece of her mind when the rapper surprised her for her birthday during an episode of Cocktails and Queens, hosted by Claudia Jordan.

The former First Lady of the Turks and Caicos Islands turned 53 last Wednesday. Jordan invited Da Brat to join the 'Queens' chat to surprise LisaRaye.

At first LR seemed surprised to see her half sister, as she broke down in tears. But then it came out that LR's feelings were hurt because Da Brat never picked up the phone to call her and wish her a happy birthday.

Things went left after Da Brat, 46, admitted that she and her big sister have been "a little bit distant" lately.

She continued, "I was going through a bunch of stuff. I haven't seen her or talked to her in a long time."

Da Brat, who refers to LR as "Punk", said, "You know how much I love you. You know how much you mean to me since I was a child..."

Keri Hilson was a fresh faced newcomer more than a decade ago when her record label told her to diss then-superstar Beyonce Knowles on a track.

In an interview with Claudia Jordan, Hilson recalled dissing Beyonce on her song "Turning M On" and how the fake beef hurt her spirit.

Hilson claims her label made her diss Beyonce, and she was too young and insecure to tell them no.

Hilson, a 37-year-old Sagittarius, said she took a 9-year hiatus from music to heal herself due to clinical depression.

She said she contemplated quitting the business altogether. "I just knew I needed time to get back to myself."

Hilson said she was "incredibly" unhappy following the breakup of an 11-year relationship.

"I was 17 to 28 years old in that relationship, so I did not know life alone. I did not know and love and accept myself. I didn't know who the hell I was."

Vivica A. Fox seemed to confirm rumors that reality TV personality NeNe Leakes snorts cocaine when she's not in front of the cameras.

During an appearance on Fox Soul TV's Out Loud With Claudia Jordan, Vivica implied that NeNe dabs her nose with white powder.

Jordan mentioned that NeNe had recently spoken out about going to see a therapist.

"Baby, sometimes, I'm like, 'What is really going on?" Vivica said before adding, "I just wanted to know did you see a little, um um," Vivica said as she sniffed and swiped her fingers under her nose.

"'Cause I just thought it's a whole lot of adrenaline and stuff going on, so it must be another level of something."

"You mean when it gets sweaty right here?" Jordan asked Vivica, as she, too, swiped her fingers across her nose.

"Wait, she's getting therapy for mental [health] or consumption?" Vivica asked Jordan.

The ladies also discussed making Black people the face of COVID-19.

Rumors of NeNe's cocaine use has been a hot topic on the blogs. She was accused of powdering her nose by co-stars Kenya Moore and Cynthia Bailey.

NeNe's son's baby mama Symone Davis also put her on blast, saying NeNe has a coke problem.

Black Twitter is weighing in on Phaedra Parks' new boyfriend, actor Medina Islam, who will appear with her on the upcoming season of Marriage Boot Camp.

The hunky 35-year-old Virgo is best known for his role in Tyler Perry's The Haves and Have Nots.

For that reason, Black Twitter seems to think Medina goes both ways. They claim Tyler only hires ghey or bisexual actors as his leading men. But there is no evidence to support those allegations.

Medina is (or was) in a relationship with reality TV star and radio host Claudia Jordan.

Phaedra and Medina reportedly began dating a few months ago, after she broke up with ex-boyfriend DJ Tone Kapone. Many doubted Phaedra and Kapone were even a real couple.

Black Twitter says Phaedra and Medina are a made-for-tv couple. But it doesn't like she's paying him to play her man on TV.

Phaedra, 45, gushed over Medina in an interview with The Daily Mail in July.

"He's very smart, very intelligent. He's kind, we are both socially active. He's really sober and smart. He's a great father," Phaedra said of her current bae to DailyMail back in July. "So I'm excited about it."

Phaedra reportedly plans to move with her sons, Ayden, 9, and Dylan, 6, to Los Angeles to be closer to Medina.

In addition to acting, Medina is an artist and songwriter who released an album titled The Love that Hate Made. He is also a rap ghostwriter who penned Ludacris' hit single "Pimpin All Over the World."

In an interview with Atlanta's V-103 Morning culture on Wednesday, Sept. 4, Yoba told host Big Tigger that he is not a homosexual because he is attracted to "all women".

In a separate radio interview with Claudia Jordan - host of The Morning Rush With Claudia on 105.7 in Dallas - Yoba took it a step further, saying, "I love women with breasts and penises."

During the same interview, Yoba, 55, denied paying a teenage transgender for sex 20 years ago. Both interviews are posted below.
