Some Of These Celebrities Won’t Be Able To Make A Comeback After This

It’s safe to say that the year 2020 has been eventful to say the least! While many stars have been stuck in quarantine, that hasn’t stopped some celebrities from being cancelled. There have been rumors about Ellen Degeneres’ backstage conduct for years but now she’s being investigated for alleged bad behavior. Many fans had a serious issue with Doja Cat’s new song and Jeffree Star’s new makeup pallet. Victoria Fuller took part in an unfortunately named ad campaign, while Lea Michele was called out for being a mean girl behind the scenes of Glee. Arielle Charnas decided a pandemic was a great time for a vacation, and Sherry Pie has been accused of masquerading as a casting director. Some stars like Vanessa Hudgens and Evangeline Lily were called out for not taking COVID-19 seriously, while Hannah Brown and Jimmy Fallon made headlines for being insensitive. Chase Stokes tried to say his online accounts were compromised, while J.K. Rowling was unapologetic about comments that caused her own fan sites to disown her. Abby Lee Miller has found herself in hot water yet again while fans have been watching Tyra Banks on “America’s Next Top Model” with a new perspective.

Rumor: Nicki Minaj and Cardi B collab on new song! This could be a record breaker.

Pam McArthur

Cardi B Nicki Manoj

Cardi B might have accidentally posted a topless pic on Instagram yesterday, but there’s much more shocking news to discuss today. Rumor’s are percolating that foes-turned-frenemies (turned back to foes), Nicki Minaj and Cardi B may once again be shifting their relationship dynamic to a friendlier zone — and burying the hatchet, with a new song. The rumor’s are unsubstantiated but please, let me live with the idea for a moment. 

In case anyone forgot about the backstory behind the beef, the tension between these two talented artists reached peak during New York Fashion Week back in September 2018. The altercation left Cardi with a sizeable knot on her forehead. So prominent, it could be seen in the now iconic photographs of the rapper leaving the party barefoot, with her head held high.

Needless to say, having these two mega-artista’s come together for a duo would surely break records (and probably the internet). We just saw “WAP” dominate Spotify, YouTube, and the music industry, and that was Cardi and the up-and-coming girl. Now, Imagine Cardi and the Queen?

But before we get too excited, at this point of time, it’s all hear-say; there’s actual no proof that this duo is dropping a collaboration anytime soon. We’re working off hints and rumors’ here.

Have a look at this tweet from Cardi B:

She posted this after some back and forth with fans on Twitter. The topic of discussion? The friction between her fans (#Bardigang) and Nicki Minaj’s fans (the #Barbz). So what is a fan like me supposed to think when she says she’s got a new single, that could be a collaboration, and it’s going to have her fan base sick? It’s either a song with Offset or Nicki Minaj, right? The rest of the rumours hinge on a song called “Lavish” listed on the music info site Genius for a short time before being removed, and an alleged “leaked” snippet of said song has been floating around the Twitterverse. But anybody could make a page on Genius, and these days a 13 year old with a laptop and a Twitter account can trick people into believing they have an alleged “leaked” snippet.       

If there does end up being some truth to this (fingers crossed!), it would be a huge moment for female rap. I believe the feud between these ladies was started by toxic fan bases more than any action or statement from either party. Obsessed and immature stans have become a cancer on the entertainment industry, especially the music business. We’ve seen the way Selena Gomez stans have treated Hailey Bieber and how Justin Bieber fans have treated Selena. Lady Gaga fans wrote fake bad reviews of Venom when it was released the same weekend as A Star Is Born. Ariana Grande fans reportedly sent messages to Pete Davidson, telling him to kill himself after his relationship with the singer ended. But most commonly the stans pit women against each other. For some reason there’s been this narrative that only one female rapper can be at the top of the charts, and even now that there’s two, the stans not only make the women at war, but they want every new female emcee to pledge allegiance to one or the other. Megan Thee Stallion addresses this in her NYT op-ed (published yesterday) about protecting Black women:

“In every industry, women are pitted against one another, but especially in hip-hop, where it seems as if the male-dominated ecosystem can handle only one female rapper at a time. Countless times, people have tried to pit me against Nicki Minaj and Cardi B, two incredible entertainers and strong women. I’m not ‘the new’ anyone; we are all unique in our own ways.”

What would make the hope of this collaboration better is if Cardi and Nicki took their journey and put that into the song. Imagine a record about healthy competition among women, and being driven to make better art because your competitor is challenging you to be your best self. It would be epic to witness them go back and forth on a track like Brandy and Monica in “The Boy Is Mine,” except the boy isn’t part of this more modern conversation. We’d get the spectacle of two titans of the music industry coming together, but after you peel back that layer there’s more to digest. If Cardi and Nicki have anything in the works, it’s going to be bigger than “WAP”; just looking at the combined metrics of their fanbases and the anticipation for such an event, but give it some substance and this moment would become its own chapter in the female rap history books. 

Speaking of “WAP,” Cardi and Megan’s smash hit single is already one of the biggest songs of the year, but it won’t be competing for any Grammys this winter because it wasn’t submitted for consideration. Weirdly, it’s being reported that Cardi’s label wants to submit the song for consideration next year as part of a major push for her yet-to-be-released sophomore album. We have to wait until the 2022 Grammys to see if “WAP” gets some wet-ass-love from the academy, and I don’t like that. There have been so many accusations against Cardi’s label (Atlantic Records) when it comes to payola and other less than savoury promotional efforts. This overly strategic move leaves a bad taste in my mouth. However… if this Nicki Minaj collaboration rumour proves to have some substance and we do get the two of biggest female rappers out right now on one song, that plus “WAP” being in consideration could really shake the table at the 2022 Grammys.

Breaking News: Showtime announce return of Michael C. Hall role in ‘Dexter’

Dexter


Sharpen your knives, “Dexter” fans.
America’s favorite meticulous serial killer Dexter Morgan is making his return in 2021 with a limited series on Showtime.  Michael is set to reappear in his infamous role as Dexter Morgan in a 10-episode revival of Dexter , the network announced on October 14. The series will begin production within 2 months and hopes for a fall 2021 premiere.

Dexter is such a special series, both for its millions of fans and for Showtime, as this breakthrough show helped put our network on the map many years ago,”

Showtime president of Entertainment said in a statement on Wednesday. “We would only revisit this unique character if we could find a creative take that was truly worthy of the brilliant, original series. Well, I am happy to report that Clyde Phillips and Michael C. Hall have found it, and we can’t wait to shoot it and show it to the world!”

If any series deserves the opportunity to give its protagonist a new ending, it’s Dexter. Diehard fans of the cult classic were split on the fate of Michael C. Hall’s lovable serial killer Dexter Morgan when the show originally culminated.

The original series aired for eight seasons from 2006 to 2013, following the complicated journey of Dexter Morgan, who helped the Miami police force by day and murdered people by night. In the series finale, the character faked his own death and became a lumberjack.

The show took home four Primetime Emmy Awards, two Golden Globe Awards and one Screen Actors Guild Awards during its run.

In 2014, Hall, now 39, opened up about the series’ end — which many believe is one of the worst finales of all time — admitting that he felt “sadness” when he read the final scene.

“Given what he had been through and his attempts to have his cake and eat it too in regards to indulging his compulsion to kill and have a more authentic life, his self-imposed exile did resonate”

the Six Feet Under alum shared during a Reddit AMA in 2014. “I think Dexter came to believe that … anything he touched would eventually be destroyed and so he felt he needed to let it all go. Of course, Dexter is also a pragmatist and a self-preservationist so he didn’t do himself in. But rather put himself on hold.”
