Rapper, entrepreneur, director, Ice Cube interviewed with comedian Bill Maher as he addressed his use of the n-word during Friday night’s episode of HBO’s Real Time.
Ice Cube didn’t hold anything back, he eloquently let Bill have it without getting angry that he used a word that he had no right using no matter the case. Once Ice Cube was introduced, Bill began saying, “I did a bad thing.” Yes, he said a word that he had no business saying but that’s how he really feels about the black race, it doesn’t matter that he dates black women. A lot of white men date black women, that doesn’t mean they are open to the entire race, what came out of his mouth is how he really felt.
“I knew you was going to f–k up sooner or later. I love your show, but you been bucking up that line a little bit. You got a lot of black jokes… Sometimes you sound like a redneck trucker,” Ice Cube said.
“What made you think that it was cool to say that,” he asked. After Bill tried explaining why he thought it was okay to use “house n-gger” in last week’s episode and then followed up with an apology, Ice Cube said, “I accept your apology, but I still think we need to get to the root of the psyche, because I think there are a lot of guys out there who cross the line because they a little too familiar… or is guys who had a black girlfriend or two that made them some Kool-Aid now and then think they can cross the line, and they can’t.”
Ice Cube compared it to “a knife.” “You can use it as a weapon or you can use it as a tool. It’s been used as a weapon against us by white people, and we’re not gonna let that happen again by nobody, because it’s not cool. It’s in the lexicon, everybody talk it, but it’s our word now. You can’t have it back.”
Ice Cube gave him a verbal tongue lashing, Bill Maher looked stupid and felt stupid, but this will not be the last time he uses that word. It doesn’t matter that he was called out by Ice Cube, he is used to saying that word, if he wasn’t, it wouldn’t have come out so easily. His apology means nothing to me but it meant something to Ice Cube. I love how he represented our race without having to get ugly with the comedian.
Black Panther’s Michael B Jordan & Lupita Nyongo
Black Panther the movie was great, an all black movie with all black characters was amazing too see. The actors and actresses really stepped up and did their thing. I was thoroughly impressed with this movie as well as the entire cast.
The movie is definitely breaking all box offices all over the world and other countries as well, we shouldn’t have expected any less but what’s more juicier than the movie? Its the tea behind the scenes that has the fans, viewers, staff and other celebrities talking about the chemistry between Michael B Jordan and Lupita Nyongo.
Talented and handsome Michael B. Jordan and the beautiful Lupita Nyong’o may be allegedly creeping on the low low and if they are, please reveal yourselves, we love to see another beautiful black couple making waves in the movie industry together. Both are talented actors and actresses, they are lovely too look at together, we see a match made in heaven.
The two have have actually been doing some devilish flirting on social media and keeping close to each other while making public appearances. The way they look at each other is not from one cast mate to another, its like I want you now from the both of them. It’s so cute though and you know we are suckers for love.
The flirting began on Monday when Lupita shared a video of her storming into Michael’s dressing room at The View and wanting him to do a push up. According to reliable sources close to the actress this wasn’t the first time she had shared a video of Michael, the two made a bet on the set of the Black Panther, and Lupita won the bet, her prize was to command Michael to perform ‘on call pushups’ anytime she wanted. Well, he does work out, look at his biceps, she should have thought of a different type of exercise but it’s still cute.
Monday Michael replied to her video with a now deleted tweet that read: ‘Bring them chocolate cakes back. You ready for round 2?’
Lupita then replied: ‘No dessert until you come correct, @michaelb4jordan! ‘#youknowyouwantthis #youaintready.’
Let’s get it on ya’ll!! They would make a delicious couple, hopefully something does come out of them making the movie a success as well as a romance. Black Panther was phenomenal.
Cardi B At The Grammy’s
Break out reality star Cardi B is ready for the Grammy’s!! Whatever, she puts her hands on, its a hit, she’s got the magic touch and this is her year!
The former stripper and reality star was asked what was she most looking forward to at the Grammy’s? Cardi answered, “Me, hopefully winning an award. Like what else? Like that’s all I think about to be honest.” Sounds just like a Cardi B answer to me, she holds nothing back, we love her no nonsense style, her craziness and her ability to just be real. She is also excited for her man’s group Migo’s who are also nominated.
Cardi B and Bruno Mars are expected to perform there breakout song, “Finesse,” tonight on the Grammy’s! I so love this song, it takes you back to the 90’s on the “In Living Color,” stage with her and Bruno Mars. What I love most about this song, Cardi is having so much fun, the smile on her face says it all and the connection she has with Bruno in this song is amazing, they both deserve to win!!
