Rapper The Game addressed allegations that he's scamming aspiring rappers by charging them to promote their music on mixtapes. Times are hard for rappers like The Game during the coronavirus outbreak. Multiple aspiring rappers accused The Game of sliding into their DMs and offering slots on mixtapes for $500 or $1000 cash. One rapper wrote: "He doesn't upload on his verified SoundCloud account, he uploads on a separate account with only 266 followers. In addition, he doesn't market it on Instagram or Facebook, nor makes an appearance on any on the songs."

But The Game defended his actions, saying he gave aspiring rappers exactly what he promised: a mixtape slot. He said his customers got upset when he did not make them overnight celebrities. "Basically, I'm just trying to uplift artists with dope opportunities," he said.

NBA star DeMar DeRozan confronted a man who broke into his Los Angeles-area home and entered his children's playroom.

DeRozan, 31, has two minor daughters with former fiancée Kiara Morrison, 32, (pictured with DeRozan and daughter Diar in 2018).

TMZ reported Saturday that the Spurs guard came "face-to-face" with the intruder after he ended up in the children's playroom in DeRozan's Calabasas mansion.

DeRozan chased the man, who was later arrested by police after he said he was actually looking for Kylie Jenner's home.

It isn't clear how the man breached security at the exclusive gated community. But guards caught him when he returned to the community for another burglary expedition the next day.

BACKGRID

Jenner, 23, who was on holiday with her family in Lake Tahoe, returned home and immediately went to the courthouse to file a restraining order against the man.

The man was charged with one count of felony burglary and served with a restraining order to keep away from the DeRozan and Jenner residences.

"I grew up in Compton, California," DeRozan said Saturday, according to ESPN. "I've been through worse."

DeRozan was part of a blockbuster trade that sent Kawhi Leonard to Toronto in 2018.

Kylie Jenner has filed for an order of protection from a man who committed burglary in her exclusive gated community in Calabasas, California. The reality TV personality says she believes the man is stalking her.

Kylie is seeking a restraining order against a man named Justin Bergquist in court on Friday. Law enforcement sources tell TMZ Bergquist allegedly broke into a mansion in Kylie's neighborhood last month. He left without taking anything -- but he came back and tried to get inside the gates again.

Security stopped the burglar the second time and called the cops, but he told officers he was there to see Kylie.

TMZ sources say it's unclear if Bergquist mistakenly thought the first home he allegedly broke into was Kylie's, but he was arrested anyway for burglary and trespassing.

Court records show Bergquist is due back in court next month after pleading not guilty in his criminal case.

Kylie filed court docs after arriving back home with her daughter, Stormi Webster, from a family vacation in Lake Tahoe. She flew in on her $50 million private jet, ignoring the CDC's recommendations to avoid traveling during the holidays due to the COVID 19 outbreak.

Speculation ran wild when Kylie posted photos of herself cozying up to Fai in Paris. Though she denies they are an item, the body language in the pictures tell a different story. A follower tagged Kylie's ex, Travis, in the photo comments.

According to TMZ, Kylie and her tall dark and handsome beau are just friends. In fact, TMZ claims Fai is in Kylie's "friend zone".

According to the Internet, Fai is a 28-year-old Instagram star from Saudi Arabia. He is also a pop singer who released a single called "Love It." His Instagram account has over 1.5 million followers.

Megan Thee Stallion hit back at Internet trolls who accused her of pulling a Jussie Smollett by lying about the seriousness of her foot injury for attention.

Smollett famously lied about being attacked by two racist Trump supporters in Chicago on January 29, 2019. He was later arrested for making a false police report.

Megan, 25, said she was shot in both feet, but she left out the name of the shooter.

Megan was shot after attending a pool party thrown by Kylie Jenner in Calabasas on July 12. The rapper was in a vehicle with singer Tory Lanez and her bestie when the alleged shooting occurred.

TheHollywoodFix.com / BACKGRID

Police arrested Lanez, 28, and charged him with a felony count of carrying a concealed weapon in a vehicle.

Police initially believed Megan was injured by broken glass because the jagged edges of her wound did not appear to be caused by a bullet.

Police are very familiar with gunshot wounds.

As rumors swirled that Megan made up the shooting story, she took to Instagram on Wednesday to put the rumors to bed.

The "WAP" rapper shared a graphic photo of her foot injury, and wrote:

"Lol what I have learned abt majority of the people on social media is y'all like to hear bad news before good news, a lie spreads quicker than the truth, and y'all really be believing the shit Y'ALL make up."

She added that she was shot in the back of her feet while she was walking away from the shooter. He's a really great shot if her story is to be believed.

"Why would I lie abt getting shot? Why are y'all so upset that I don't wanna be in the bed sad? Why y'all upset that I can walk? I usually don't address internet bullshit but y'all people are so sick!"

She said her stitches were removed about 2 weeks ago.

She concluded, "Sorry I'm not as sad and miserable as a lot of y'all lol but ima keep being Megan Thee Mf STALLION."

Judging from the photo, it doesn't look like she was shot. But I'm not a doctor.

Fashion designer Michael Costello drew backlash on Instagram when he commented under a Kylie Jenner post after she tagged the designer of her birthday dress.

The drama ensued after Kylie posted an Instagram image of her 23rd birthday dress on Wednesday, August 12.

She captioned the image: "thank you my love @olivier_rousteing for the most perfect bday dress..."
 

Costello was outraged when he saw Kylie tag the designer of her birthday dress. Costello has designed dresses for Kylie for free - and he never got a shout out from her on social media.

Costello took to Instagram and posted a lengthy comment on Jenner's post, calling her out for not always tagging fashion designers like him in her social media posts.

Costello, pictured with Nicole Scherzinger, said he's not the only one who designed free dresses for Kylie and never got tagged in her posts.

"For example, Bryan Hearns makes a lot of dresses for Kylie and no one ever gives him any credit and he deserves it. Makeup artists and stylists are getting tagged but the clothing designers are not."

Costello's outburst went viral on social media, and stars such as Lala Kent and Savannah Chrisley shared their negative experiences with him.

Kent wrote: "I literally blew him up to make my custom wedding dress-he would have gotten all the 'tags & @'s' he's talking about. But I never heard back from him. why? Because I'm not 'big enough.' So cool out, Costello - you do the same s--t."

Costello apologized for his meltdown, telling Us Weekly, "I have no issues or beef with Kylie Jenner."

"I love her. The reason I commented on her post is because she is often tagging some designers but not others."

He continued:

"In regards to me, there is no bad air. Kylie has worn my outfits about four or five times. She didn't tag me in posts but her stylist has and she acknowledges me in person and says how much she appreciates my work. I just want the public to see what is happening with the designers and how we are often doing work for free for no credit."

Singer Brandy Norwood wore a Michael Costello design on the red carpet at the 2015 BET Awards.

Question: Was Costello wrong to call out Kylie for not tagging designers who give her free dresses?

Cardi B has defended Kylie Jenner's cameo appearance as a whore in her "WAP" video featuring Megan Thee Stallion. Cardi issued a statement after angry fans launched petition to have the reality star's cameo removed from the music video.

Cardi and Megan Thee Stallion dropped the video for their collaboration on Thursday, Aug. 6, featuring a variety of dancers including Normani, Mulatto, and Suki.

Jenner's appearance riled Cardi's fans, who demanded her removal in a Change.org petition that was launched over the weekend, labeling Jenner a "culture vulture".

But the "Bodak Yellow" star hit back on Twitter, insisting, "Not everything is about race."

Fans were tight that Normani and the other dancers were depicted as strippers while Jenner strolls down a hallway opening a door.

"Normani did ALL this and Kylie walked down the hall and opened a door. If that's not a perfect visual indication of Black women having to do the most..." wrote one fan, prompting the hitmaker's response.

"Normani is one of the best female artist that dances like she dances her f**kin ass off!" Cardi wrote. "Why would she open a door? Please tell me how that would make sense? The best part of the song is the beat and hook, it what makes you want to shake your ass."

She continued: "Not everything is about race. Theres issues out here in the world that is about race and I preach all the time about. This is not about f**kin race."

"Why did I put Kylie on my music video? She treated my sister and daughter so lovely at her kid's bday party," Cardi insisted in a final tweet. "Travis (Scott, Kylie's ex) and Set (Offset, Cardi's husband) are real close and Kris Jenner have given me advice on certain things I ask for and her husband real cool with mine."

Sandrarose.com gave the music video 2.5 roses, but my readers gave it 0.5 roses -- usually reserved for music videos that belong in a dumpster.

Cardi B recruited up-and-coming rapper Megan Thee Stallion for her new track "WAP". Megan outshines Cardi on her own track (which isn't difficult to do).

The ladies exchange verses over a sample from Frank Ski's - "There's Some Whores in This House", as Cardi raps:

    Beat it up, nigga, catch a charge
    Extra large and extra hard
    Put this pu$$y right in your face
    Swipe your nose like a credit card

Cardi and Megan wear matching pastel colored lingerie while touring a Miami modern-style whore house featuring rooms with strippers, tigers, snakes, and raunchy X-rated art on the walls.

Oh, and Kylie Jenner makes a cameo appearance as one of the whores.

The song itself is typical Cardi B fare, bragging about her manufactured body and her skills in the bedroom wile struggling to ride the beat.

"I don't cook, I don't clean/But let me tell you, I got this ring," she raps.

Like she did for Beyonce, Megan will take this track to the top of the charts. Ironically, Megan, who was allegedly shot twice by her boyfriend Tory Lanez, raps about controlling her man. ("You can't hurt my feelings, but I like pain").

    "Gobble me, swallow me, drip down the side of me
    Quick, jump out before you let it get inside of me
    I tell him where to put it, never tell him where I'm about to be
    I run down on him before I have a nigga runnin' me (Pow, pow, pow)."

 

Megan totally outclasses Cardi and exposes her lyrical weaknesses on this track. I give this song 2.5 roses for Megan's stellar efforts to salvage this trash.
