Fiesta Friday. It’s a fiesta party today so why not get things started with Jay Z being accused of feeding off Beyoncé? Speaking of rap stars, is Kendrick Lamar shook over the upcoming Grammys? With the West Coast still on your mind, is Dr. Dre making bank every second? All this coming up in SOHH Whatcha Think.
1. Jigga What?
There’s some controversy going down right now with Jay Z thanks to former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee going off on Hov and his relationship to Beyoncé? Raw Story has the info:
“Beyonce is incredibly talented – gifted, in fact. She has an exceptional set of pipes and can actually sing,” Huckabee writes. “She is a terrific dancer – without the explicit moves best left for the privacy of her bedroom. Jay-Z is a very shrewd businessman, but I wonder: Does it occur to him that he is arguably crossing the line from husband to pimp by exploiting his wife as a sex object?” (Raw Story)
Should Jay Z issue a statement or just let it slide? #SOHHWhatchaThink?
2. Grammy Family?
Is Kendrick Lamar set for another upset at the upcoming Grammy Awards? With Macklemore killing it last year, is Iggy Azalea due to pull off the same upset? Kendrick Lamar has his thoughts. Billboard has the info:
Iggy’s The New Classic is up for best rap album at the Grammys this year, an award that Kendrick’s good kid, m.A.A.d city lost to Macklemore & Ryan Lewis’ The Heist in 2014. Some are predicting the widely scoffed-at Macklemore victory will repeat in 2015 via Azalea, but Lamar has no ill will toward either. (Billboard)
Who do you have for the big win at the Grammy Awards? #SOHHWhatchaThink?
3. Money In The Bank
Is Dr. Dre making money by just breathing? That appears to be the case. He’s racked up millions, even billions, and the stats don’t lie. FactMag has some info:
A new list compiled by Sky Range, using data from Forbes, has ranked the highest earning musicians of 2014 according to how much money they made per second.
Following his massive windfall from the $3 billion sale of Beats to Apple last year, Dr. Dre raked in no less than $620 million (before tax), which equates to a whopping $19.66 per second. Dre’s total was the highest annual income of any musician, ever. (FactMag)
Is Dr. Dre ever going to catch an “L” at this rate? #SOHHWhatchaThink?
