T.I. will address the controversy… ASAP Rocky designing prison uniforms… Friends props up for auction… Billie Eilish has mini merch… and Grammy Awards nominations leak was legit…
Ever since T.I. went on that podcast and said he goes to his daughter’s gyno appointments to make sure everything is intact, he’s kept his big mouth shut. Until now! T.I. spoke to Jada Pinkett Smith about the whole fallout, and it will air this Monday on Jada’s Facebook Watch show, Red Table Talk. Tiny is not Facebook Watch show on Monday. It doesn’t sound like his 18-year-old daughter Deyjah will be part of the show, but T.I.’s wife Tiny will. Tiny is not Deyjah’s mother. That would be a singer named Ms. Niko.
T.I. will address the controversial comments that he made about his daughter on an upcoming episode of ‘Red Table Talk’ https://t.co/sxw7x5kWNi pic.twitter.com/dRnkTlp66a— Vibe Magazine (@VibeMagazine) November 20, 2019
A$AP Rocky may have left Sweden, but Sweden hasn’t left him! Over the summer, A$AP lived through a nightmare when he was held in a Swedish prison for a month, waiting to go on trial for beating up a couple of guys who’d been annoying him and his entourage. He told TMZ that experience opened his eyes to how bad things are for immigrant prisoners there. As a celebrity, he was able to get before a judge in a month. Apparently, other prisoner rot in prison for almost a year before they get their chance in court. So A$AP wants to use his celebrity status to change that. He’s going back to Stockholm for a concert on December 11 and he’s donating the proceeds to an immigrant rights organization. He also said he’s designed a new wardrobe and uniforms for the prisoners in the facility he was held.
For the first time ever, more than 100 props and costumes from “Friends” are being put up for auction online! There will be some really good reproductions, too. Proceeds will benefit The Trevor Project, a suicide prevention and crisis intervention organization for young people who identify as LGBTQ. Just some of the items up for a bidding war include a reproduction of the couch they all sat on in Central Perk, Joey’s stuffed penguin Hugsy, Ross’ armadillo costume, Joey and Chandler’s canoe, and Monica and Chandler’s wedding invitation set. I was excited when I heard they were auctioning off that purple frame that hangs over Monica and Rachel’s peephole, but they’re actually auctioning off 10 copies of it….But each item — replica or not — comes with a Warner Bros. Certificate of Authenticity. The bidding runs Dec. 3-17 on PropStore.com/friends.
Billie Eilish has started a children’s merch line for her itty bittiest fans. Billie Eilish Kids launched on Monday and you need to get on it quick if you’re thinking about giving some of this stuff for Christmas. There are baby and toddler sweatshirts, t-shirts and onesies ranging from $20 to $60. The little beanies and socks have already sold out. And Post Malone just announced his 4th collaboration with Crocs. His first three sold out in just minutes, so you’ll need to act super fast when these hit the internet. Posty’s new clogs are basically an updated version of the Duet Max Clog. These are blue and black camo with a thicker outsole. In a statement, Post said, “I wanted to make a more tactical and chunky shoe and they gave me all the tools to do just that. I think they came out really neat…” The new design goes on sale Dec. 10 at 9am CT. These will set you back $59.99.
The leak was legit. Lizzo does lead the Grammy nominations with eight, including Album of the Year, Song and Record of the Year, and Best New Artist. Billie Eilish and Lil Nas X followed with six nominations each. Joining Lizzo, Billie and Lil Nas X in the nominations for Album of the Year are “I,I” by Bon Iver, “Norman F****ing Rockwell!” by Lana Del Rey, “Thank U, Next” by Ariana Grande, “I Used to Know Her” by H.E.R. and “Father of the Bride” by Vampire Weekend. That’s a HUGE snub for Taylor Swift’s “Lover” album, although she did receive noms for Song and Record of the Year. Other Song of the Year nominations include, “Always Remember Us This Way” by Lady Gaga, “Bad Guy” by Billie Eilish, “Bring My Flowers Now” by Tanya Tucker, “Hard Place” by H.E.R., “Norman F***ING Rockwell!” by Lana Del Rey, “Someone You Love” by Lewis Capaldi, and “Truth Hurts” by Lizzo. And joining Lizzo in the Best New Artist category are Black Pumas, Billie Eilish, Lil Nas X, Maggie Rogers, Rosalía, Tank and the Bangas, and Yola. The 62nd Grammy Awards will air Sunday, Jan. 26, on CBS.
🎉 Congratulations 62nd #GRAMMYs Album Of The Year nominees: @boniver, @LanaDelRey, @billieeilish, @ArianaGrande, @HERMusicx, @LilNasX, @lizzo, and @vampireweekend.
