1. Snap That, Snap That
To be honest with y'all, I never really took the time to get down with Instagram, I barely even know how to use Twitter but the buzz over the past few years has been what stuff someone throws up on there. Quite frankly, what's so ill about taking a modern-day photo and making it look all old and ancient? LOL. Maybe it's just me, I'm more into looking at things in the future. Well, as the story goes, Facebook put up $1 billion to buy Instagram earlier this year and now everyone is seeing those effects getting ready to go into motion. You have nice photos? Pay Instagram! Want to show off your intimate shots of your spouse? Pay Instagram! Got some special holiday moments? Pay Instagram! OK, so maybe "you're" not paying Instagram, but the folks over there are trying to cake up off your photos. Here's the spewl:
Instagram changed some of the wording in its Terms of Service, which doesn't explain exactly how the company might use the photos. It says "you agree that a business or other entity may pay us to display your username, likeness, photos (along with any associated metadata), and/or actions you take, in connection with paid or sponsored content or promotions, without any compensation to you." The new policy goes into effect on Jan. 16, 2013. (ABC News)
It didn't take too long after this announcement before errrry doggy and their parents vowed to ditch Instagram for good. You name it, they bugged out. LeBron James, P!nk, Tyler, the Creator, etc. BUT(T) the only two peeps talking that caught my attention came from the Vida Guerra and Kim Kardashian. Looks like they're taking their ass-ets elsewhere!
"Come join me on Viame/vidaguerra and forget about Instagram can't believe they want to make money by selling your image" (Vida Guerra's Twitter)
Kim K isn't convinced ... at least not yet ... and is telling friends she's thinking about shutting down her Instagram account, going to a rival photo-posting company ... and taking ALL OF HER FOLLOWERS WITH HER. It's a big deal ... considering KK has the most followers of any Instagram user at 5,726,343 ... way past Justin Bieber (4,366,729) and President Barack Obama (1,834,079). Plus, if Kim goes ... her family members could follow ... and Khloe, Kylie, Kendall and Rob are also in the Top 10 most followed on the site. One source close to Kim tells us the reality star is planning on waiting to see the revised T.O.S. before she makes her final decision ... but unless she sees some radical changes, she's outtie 5000. (TMZ)
As if you needed more reasons to ditch Instagram? LOL.
2. Blue & Orange
Any doggy that comes on here knows I bleed that blue and orange, so expect me to ride with anything bearing the N-Y-K on it. Therefore, no matter how much I think Charlamagne Tha God is funny, I've got to give the props to JR Smith for going ham on him through Twitter. LOL. Turns out the hottest Knick behind Carmelo Anthony kept his shots dropping (Swwwwissssssh!) on the recently relocated North Carolina native. CTG may have got the first couple of giggles, but Smith made sure to snap back just right. Peep the hilarious Q&A:
What did you do to get it? RT @TheRealJRSmith: #S/O to my big bro liltunchi for the #TrukFit instagr.am/p/TEjtbetfFq/
You know the rule you can't post any pics of Trukfit without showing the receipt are we will just assume you sucked d*ck for it.
@cthagod you mad late kid! But I ain't bout those games!#Dontplayyaself
See when people do ish like that causes for people to get hurt!#DontGetHurt stick to being the funny gut on the radio#Straightlikedat
See. This why I root for the Nets. RT @TheRealJRSmith:@cthagod you mad late kid! But I ain't bout those games!#Dontplayyaself
#Knickstape RT @TheRealJRSmith: See when people do ish like that people get hurt! #DontGetHurt stick to being the funny guy on the radio
My Twitter Location Is So Accurate.
@cthagod bet that where u at then
Don't worry I'll wait!
My Twitter Location says "Under Your Skin" that's where I am currently. RT @TheRealJRSmith: @cthagod bet that where u at then
@cthagod yea I thought so! Don't worry every time I see you ima Smack!
Why do I have this affect on people?
And I'm a SUE!!!! RT @TheRealJRSmith: @cthagod yea I thought so! Don't worry every time I see you ima Smack!
This n*gga @TheRealJRSmith is threatening me like the Knicks are having a losing season.
So anyway back to doing me!
I would never let me piss me off.
^ LOL!!! NO COMMENT!!!
3. Moment of the Week: Cassidy Releases "Condom Style"
I rock with Cassidy hard body but Meek Mill said it best, "Condom Style" is probably the worst track I've ever heard in my life. Just because Lil B makes an album called "I'm Gay" doesn't mean the content will translate over and that is obviously the case with Cass. I'm glad that he's trying to do things to stay relevant and can appreciate his decision to promote safe lovin' but this track? SMH... No way, José! This had to be the biggest moment of the week. Bonus points to all of y'all that couldn't help but repeat the chorus, "Stroke 'em condom style!" LOL!!!
This bad chick, her name Stephanie,
Said her destiny is to f*ck with me,
She pressing me to have sex with me,
But Stephanie could have STD.
She start to kissing and caressing me,
Yes, she was sexually molesting me,
But having sex unprotectedly is like putting your life in jeopardy.
So I'm strapping up, open the wrapper up,
And put the Magnum on before I smash the junk
She was kind of mad that I had it on,
But no, I ain't going raw on that nasty junk.
I don't care if she said "I'm not infected"
Cause I don't wanna have her say that "you got me pregnant"
A lot of bad ones want you to go off,
But you don't know, you out of luck.
And I don't act tough, she told me go off,
But I say no, you never know.
She could share the club tomorrow, I don't care,
There are so many things wrong with this song. For starters, Cass, you've gotta leave this to another rapper. Your flow and corny rhymes killed any message you were trying to make. If maybe the lines were harder and didn't come across as some PBS hip-hop special? Maybe I'm being too hard on Cass but there's honestly nothing I can co-sign this song about.
4. Mrs. Butterworth: Mileena Hayes
Apologies, but I can't recall if Mileena has gotten placement on here or not. There's been a nice, respectable cast of Mrs. Butterworths since this launched in 2010, but Mileena is at the tippy top. She's got a beautiful smile, body galore and what seems to be a personality that you could bring back home to your mom. She alomost reminds me of a Spanish Stacey Dash. Her body speaks for itself, so bow down and pay homage to this dime.
And y'all know Mileena has a stash of videos on deck. Enjoy!
5. Rappers Say The Darndest Things
I really wish SOHH would have covered some of the comments that came out of Rex Ryan's mouth after we got embarrassed AND eliminated from the NFL play-off hunt by the Titans of all teams. SMH. But, you live and go on. It's that time of the week where we put the magnifying glass up to your favorite entertainers and remind you how human they really are. Frank Ocean may have made a great stride in the music game with his bisexuality announcement, but trying to say you may have one-and-done the music biz? SMH. LOL. Stop it. Then there's T.I. who really had me scratching my head. I'm sure he got caught up in the moment, but talking about the CT shooting is why you kept guns/weapons on you at all times? SMH. C'mon, doggy. How come you made sure new album artwork show you gripping a gun then? Then it's some rapper named AP.9 saying he's smashing Coco. LOL! Ice-T might not have ended Soulja Boy's career (I think he did), but don't think that he can't have AP.9 blacklisted at a lot of spots. That "Law & Money" paper stretches. Of couse we have Bow Wow talking about smashing Esther Baxter when he was a teenager and then Ma$e saying he made Diddy famous. LOL. Welcome back to "Rappers Say The Darndest Things!"
"It could be. It could be it, if I flew next week and my plane crashed! It could be it if somebody walked along and shot me for my bracelet or something. It could always be it. The idea of recognising your strengths and using them in as versatile a way as you can is cool to me. I don't ever want to be caught up in a system of thinking I can do one thing cos that's just ... that's just telling yourself a lie. But I do like to sing. I play piano every day. I enjoy that."
"It's a tragedy and it's a travesty, it was a catastrophic event. My heart goes out to the families. As a parent, there's no way that you can hear or see or observe something like that go on and not be touched in your heart. Just to know somewhere so sacred, somewhere that is supposed to be completely off limits to any kind of wrongdoing, something like that can happen to kindergarteners -- I don't want to run the risk of sounding inappropriate but that is exactly the reason why I had mines. At any time, if anybody calls me, anytime, when I had mines, I'm pulling up with 'em and the whole perimeter will be secure and ain't nobody moving but us. ... I haven't been to the military but I'm very militant-minded when it come to protecting."
Ice T's gonna be pissed ... 'cause rapper AP.9 is now strongly insinuating that he's banging T's wife Coco. Coco said the pics were harmless ... and stated that she's "happily married." But this weekend, AP.9 was shamelessly trying to breathe life back into story ... because when he was asked about the rumors he was still bangin' Coco, the rapper looked into the camera like he LOVED the attention and said, "That's a RUMOR? Is that a rumor?" He added, "No comment man." When asked if he was worried about retaliation from Ice -- AP.9 shot back, "I'm from the hood ... I'm not worried about nothin'."
"I lost my virginity at 16 to a girl I knew I couldn't turn down," Bow Wow said in an interview. "Is she famous? Maybe to a lot of dudes. She's like one of those Smooth models. Uh, look, the homie over there laughing! [laughs] Okay, all I gotta say, I don't care, she knows it's the truth. I'ma say this, first name starts with an 'E' and last name starts with a 'B' that's all I gotta say. That's all I'm gonna say."
"We just put our heads together and Puff said he was gonna be the artist," Ma$e explained to Sway. "I stayed in the studio, helped write and he came up with the records. He wanted to do the records that I wrote and he just started rapping on 'em and then he said 'I'ma put you on the record with me,' so that's how it happened. Everything I had for myself that was like my demo, that became his album. Then I was thinking, well, 'how can I do it again?' He worked with me to become the artist that I became, doing Harlem World, so it was just a collective effort."
***Go ahead, let's hear it. The New York Jets had one of the most horrific seasons I can remember. It's not so much that we didn't compete but just the games they played, it really looked like playing your elementary school lil' sister in Madden 13. When the Jets struggled against the WORST teams? SMH....but at least there's the New York Knicks and the New York Yankees to look forward to. Can y'all believe 2013 is on deck? Last-minute Christmas shopping too, g'luck out there trying to find parking. Don't sleep on Wal-Mart, either, there's some gems in there. I'll catch y'all on Christmas with Cap Diss. Enjoy the weekend! --BB***
