[VIDEO] Diddy explains why people get cropped out of his pics on Instagram

Diddy explains why people get cropped out of his pics on Instagram.

Via Love B Scott:

In recent years, Diddy’s become notorious for cropping certain people out of photos he shares via social media.

If you recall, after last year’s Met Gala he cropped Kendall & Kylie Jenner out of a group photo.

Lmfao Diddy with the smooth crop tho pic.twitter.com/wiZGicbOeX — Essie Michelle (@ess_lovaa) May 6, 2017

This year, he removed Fabolous and French Montana (which was more than a simple crop) from a photo of Kendrick Lamar, himself, and Jay-Z.

Did Diddy really just… pic.twitter.com/ZvNDCAuKt8 — simma (@foreversimma) January 30, 2018

During his appearance on Ellen, Diddy clarified what has become known as #DiddyCrop and how his photos end up on social media.

“Sometimes my photography editor, he doesn’t let me know when he’s taking people out of the pictures,” he said. “There were people taken away that didn’t deserve to be taken away, and I had nothing to do with it.”

Diddy not having final approval of what makes his Instagram seems a bit odd to us, but alright.

“This young kid that works for me, he wanted a picture of Jay-Z, Nas, and Kendrick,” he explains. “So he used his social technology skills and that’s what he did. Then, my friends haven’t been talking to me for like two weeks.”

The movie ‘Black Panther’ has a 100% rating on the site Rotten Tomatoes

The movie ‘Black Panther’ has a 100% rating on the site Rotten Tomatoes.

Via Deadline:

The score could easily change, considering the Disney and Marvel Studios superhero pic doesn’t debut in North American theaters until Feb. 16. By that time, more than 300 reviews are expected.

If the aggregated score stays at 100 percent, Black Panther will become the first title in either the Marvel Cinematic Universe or the DC Extended Universe to earn the perfect score. Both Wonder Woman (DC) and Captain America: Civil War ranked at 100 percent on Rotten Tomatoes early in the review process, but ended up at 92 percent and 91 percent, respectively.

Directed by Ryan Coogler, Black Panther stars Chadwick Boseman as T’Challa/Black Panther alongside Lupita Nyong’o, Michael B. Jordan, Daniel Kaluuya, Letitia Wright, Winston Duke, Angela Bassett, Forest Whitaker and Andy Serkis.

The movie is the 18th title in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. One major tracking service shows Black Panther debuting to more than $130 million domestically over the long President’s Day weekend, with many box-office observers putting that number closer to $150 million.

Kevin Hart is bringing an animated show to FOX ‘Lil Kev’

Kevin Hart is bringing an animated show to FOX ‘Lil Kev’

Via Deadline:

The 20th Century Fox TV/Lionsgate TV project, written by Michael Price (The Simpsons) and Matt Claybrooks (Everybody Hates Chris), is one of several animated series in the works at Fox, including another pilot presentation for a half-hour comedy from Amy Poehler, The Simpsons‘ veteran Mike Scully and his wife, former Simpsons writer-producer Julie Scully, which was ordered by the network last summer.

They are part of a ramp-up in animated development at Fox spearheaded by the network’s new entertainment president Michael Thorn.

“I really want a new animated series, that’s a huge priority,” Thorn told Deadline. “It’s a such a strong part of our brand. I think what many people think of Fox is they think of our animated shows, and it would be great to add another original animated series to go with the three series we have on right now, The Simpsons, Family Guy and Bob’s Burgers. (Primetime animation) is so specific to Fox, we re the only ones who do it in broadcast, and I think we should continue to own that space.”

Written by Price and Claybrooks, Lil Kev is the story of a 12-year-old, pint-sized, optimistic, highly imaginative kid who navigates growing up in the crime filled inner-city of North Philly with the help and sometimes hindrance of his strong, quick-tempered mother, drug addicted father, pessimistic older brother, ex-con uncle and wise-ass talking dog.

“It’s About Kevin Hart’s experiences growing up and how his relationship with his mother and his community led to his optimistic, positive outlook despite some of the challenges and circumstances that he grew up with,” Thorn said.

Remy Ma reportedly fired Vincent Herbert as her manager

Remy Ma reportedly fired Vincent Herbert as her manager.

Via TMZ:

Sources tell us Remy fired her recently-hired manager, Vincent Herbert, when she felt he was spending more time repairing his relationship with Tamar, than furthering Remy’s career. We’re told he came up short on promises of being a “super manager” for Remy.

We’re told Remy’s complaints include Vincent dropping the ball on basic manager duties like booking studio time, and scheduling performances. On the other hand, Remy wanted no part of Vincent’s family drama — Tamar filing for divorce and a baby mama allegation — and our sources say that stuff was his focus.

Cardi B has been receiving gang threats after dissing Crips on her Instagram

Cardi B has been receiving gang threats after dissing Crips on her Instagram.

Via TMZ:

On Monday, Cardi put up a shot of herself rocking a blue fur coat in Minneapolis. Her caption said, “I hate wearing Flue but this coat was too poppin.” It’s that word “Flue” that has her in serious hot water — it’s a way to knock Crips favorite color, blue, without using the actual word.

Cardi’s publicly stated she is a Blood, so the post — which has more than a million likes — pissed off the rival Crips, who not only left angry comments … some flat-out threatened her.

The rapper’s scheduled to come to L.A. for NBA All-Star festivities in about 10 days … and her new enemies know it. One comment said, “@iamcardib this will not be accepted #DONTCOMETOLA.

Another comment — “Now why you go and do this f**k s**t Cardi. This is literally WestCoast Suicide …. bitch betta get #neutral.”

For what it’s worth — within minutes of us reaching out to Cardi’s people … the “flue” caption was removed. Still no comment from Cardi though.

Singer, Jill Scott wins her gag order against her estranged husband

Singer, Jill Scott wins her gag order against her estranged husband.

Via TMZ:

She says in her declaration he did an interview where he called her “an evil woman” and threatened to “fight dirty.”

Scott also says Dobson has contacted her friends and family and talked trash about her. When she confronted him, she says he told her he was on a campaign of revenge to get even because  she filed to end their 19-month marriage. 

She says money seems to be his endgame, citing she has business accounts worth more than $2 mil and various other assets. 

Scott says they have a prenup that prohibits both of them from blabbing to the media, and since he’s violating that she wants a gag order.

The judge issued the order.

Blac Chyna says Kim Kardashian is a big bully for sending her a Valentine’s Day gift

Blac Chyna says Kim Kardashian is a big bully for sending her a Valentine’s Day gift.

Via TMZ:

Sources close to Chyna tell TMZ … she’s pissed about the “gift” she received the other day from Kim. As we first reported,  KK sent a bunch of giant chocolate hearts — with her new perfume inside — to dozens of friends, loved ones … and haters.

We’ll give you one guess which list Blac Chyna made.

While she was tight-lipped Thursday at LAX when we asked about Kim’s chocolate heart … we’re told BC considers Kim a “very cruel, huge bully” who’s using “Mean Girls” tactics to promote her product.

Our sources say she’s surprised Kim would do this, since she’s Dream’s aunt. She also disagrees with the “hater” label because she says she’s never tried to tarnish Kim’s image.

 

Toni Braxton denies Birdman marriage rumors

Toni Braxton wants you to know she IS NOT married.

She has been denying Birdman marriage rumors.

Via Love B Scott:

Toni Braxton is setting the record straight.

Following months of speculation (and a big sparkly diamond on her ring finger), the singer is denying that she and her boo Birdman are married.

“Tamar told the world we’re married and we eloped,” she said.  “We are not married. I promise you. Maybe I wouldn’t be so explosive about it but I wouldn’t deny it. I wouldn’t say ‘I’m not married,’ if someone asked me. I’m not married.”

As for why her sister Tamar said they were married, Toni says it’s all ‘alternative facts.’

“Me and him have been friends for 16 years,” she explained.  “We’ve been besties for a long time. This is real. No crossing the line. He would keep in touch. He would come see me when I had my plays. When I had my baby shower, he would come. We were really friends.

Well alright. At least Toni understands why we give their relationship the side-eye.

“I get why they think it’s weird, but they don’t know him like I know him,” she said.  “He’s very traditional…He’s very traditional about family and values. He has two kids by his high school sweetheart. Same baby mama. He had his kids when he was in his late 20s. He’s always a gentleman to me, around me.”

Too Shorts sexual accuser is now suing him for defamination.

Via TMZ:

According to new docs filed by Teana Louis, and obtained by TMZ, she is pissed about  what the rapper told us after  she initially filed her suit. She says his remarks were an attempt to silence her and “further her victimization.”She’s particularly upset about him insinuating she’s making a “money grab.” What he actually said was Teana is “all about money” and that he’s being extorted.

Either way, in docs, Teana says Short’s statements are false and humiliated her.

Solange and Kanye West are being sued

Solange and Kanye West are being sued for sampling a 70’s song without permission.

Via TMZ:

Leroy Mitchell, also known as Prince Phillip Mitchell, wrote “If We Can’t Be Lovers” in 1970. He claims Solange’s song, “F*** the Industry” and Kanye’s song, “Everything I Am” both extensively sample his work without his permission.

Solange’s song was not a big song and Kanye’s “Everything I Am” didn’t make a big splash either.

And, check this out … we found out Solange’s song was originally supposed to be on a mix tape, called “I Can’t Get Clearance.”

The lawsuit seeks damages and wants Kanye and Solange to stop performing the songs and to put a halt to radio play as well.

The lawsuit alleges Kanye and Solange willfully committed the infringement … Mitchell is asking for punitive damages.

Beyonce took a selfie with Tiffany Haddish + saved a woman from getting a beat down.

Tiff says:

Okay, so what had happened was, something had went down with somebody at the party, right? I’m not at liberty to say what had went down at the party, but Beyoncé was just telling me to have a good time, and I was like, “No, I’m gonna end up fighting this bitch!” She was like, “No, have fun, Tiffany,” and I said, “I’m only going to have fun if you take a selfie with me.”

She said, “Okay,” and then she buried her face in my wig. We took the picture and I was like, “Is my wig slipping?” And she was like, “Mmm-hmm.” But she knew who I was! She came up to me and was like, “I think you are so funny, Tiffany Haddish.” I was like, “What? You know me?!” She said, “I’m Beyoncé.” “I KNOW!”
