Tina Knowles’ Instagram post… Twilight Swan House… Big Sean claims he grew two inches… The Weeknd is sober lite… and Britney Spears shares a new message on social mediaListen to “Showbiz – Aug 4th, 2021” on Spreaker.
Tina Knowles-Lawson is calling out Disney for alleged racism over “Black Is King.” This is the movie Beyoncé made based on “The Lion King” soundtrack. Her mama Tina was celebrating the one year anniversary of “Black is King” on her Instagram, and in a since-deleted caption she wrote, “I cannot help but wonder if a white man had made it would it not have been promoted the hell out of, and nominated for all kinds of awards. Could it have something to do with the title ‘Black Is King’ Is that why Disney did not promote it?????? Yes I said it!!! With love.” The movie was up for Best Music Film at the Grammy Awards, and it did win Best Music Video for “Brown Skin Girl” and Best R&B Performance for “Black Parade.”
July 31, 2020, Beyoncé released one of her greatest films — BLACK IS KING on Disney+

Even though the movie came out in 2008, new fans are still discovering and falling in love with “Twilight.” And now, super fans can stay in Bella Swan’s actual house! The home is located in St. Helens, Oregon — about 30 miles north of Portland. A diehard “Twilight” fan bought it in 2018 for $362K and turned it into a vacation rental. You can book the 2500 sqft, 5 BR/2BA house on AirBNB for $379/night.
Big Sean is not a tall man. Google says he’s 5’8” but come on….And at 33, he stopped growing a LOOONG time ago. However, he just shared on his Instagram Stories that he grew 2 inches! How? He said, “Chiropractor for a year straight twice a week, that’s how. Straight spine that’s how.” According to experts at The Body of Beverly Hills Wellness center, chiropractors can’t actually make you grow, but patients can notice a change in height after a few sessions. They say, “The secret lies in the spinal adjustment and posture changes that occur with chiropractic care.”
Following the example of Demi Lovato, The Weeknd is now California sober…or as he likes to call it, “sober lite.” The Weeknd told “GQ” that he’s given up hard drugs, but still smokes weed. He said, “Drugs were a crutch. It was me thinking that I needed it and not doing the work to figure out how not to need it.” The Weeknd also confessed, “I’m not a heavy drinker, as much as I used to be. The romance of drinking isn’t there.”
Britney Spears got locked in the bathroom, y’all! Or DID she? Britney posted a picture of a big brown door and basically wrote a novel of a caption about being trapped in a bathroom. But a lot of commenters believe the post is a metaphor for Britney’s life in the conservatorship and didn’t actually happen. Is this her creative way of describing what it feels like to be locked away and helpless? About how crazy she started to feel after so much time has passed until something finally snapped her back to what’s real and that she’s about to be freed? Judge for yourself! Britney wrote, “At 2am I decided to take a bath 🛁 !!!! I got a new scented lotion from Victoria’s Secret and I wanted to wear it because it helps me sleep better !!!! I went to the bathroom and looked at my leftover coffee from earlier in the morning and said “gross” but didn’t throw it away and then I looked for my face wash but couldn’t find it anywhere !!!! I was caught up in my head looking for it for about 15 minutes and then realized it’s probably in the other bathroom … then I went to leave and the door was locked 🔒 … I thought ok well it’s a bathroom, I can open the damn door 🚪 … no, the lock was stuck !!!! I got locked in the fucking bathroom and my boyfriend was sleeping 😴 … even if there are earthquakes he doesn’t wake up 😂🙄😬 !!! I screamed “HEYYYYY!!!! Come open this stupid door !!!!” …. silence … the fourth time he gets up and says “What’s wrong?” … I said “I’m in here and I can’t get out 😂😂😂😒😒😒 !!!! He tried to do his thing to open the door with a PEN ✒️ … so I got my phone and called security to tell them to open the door 🚪 … 15 minutes went by and they finally said they’d send someone up to open the door … 10 minutes later …. “HELLO ??? Is anybody there ???” … then they told me 10 more minutes !!! I cleaned the bathroom and thought about taking a shower or something but then I saw it … the door 🚪 … I just looked at it for the first time with a yearning of just wanting it to open … would my eyes trick me and make it happen faster ??? My eyes widened and the door was more clear … more vast … I could see it with clarity and brightness … please open door 🚪 !!!! “We’re here!” They said … I asked how long it would take to open … and they said “oh, maybe 10 minutes” !!!! The old coffee I had left over from the morning was there … I started feeling foggy 😶🌫️ so I drank it … I was reenergized and started speaking again!!! “Are you guys there ???” … “Yes we are!” They said, “Stand back, we’re going to open the door!” It opened … it finally opened !!!!!”
