Dem Debate, BET Hip Hop Awards, Lamar Odom, T.I. and Mike Huckabee

A few things went down yesterday:

(1) Politics – The first #DemDebate kicked off and me without access to a tv or a computer BUT I had my phone so Twitter came to my rescue. A “my fav tweets post” coming up soon but while you wait:

  • “Hillary Clinton Leans In, Embraces Role Of First Female President” (Huffpo)
  • “Hillary Clinton’s big night on the debate stage” (CNN)
  • “Who Won the Democratic Debate?” (The Atlantic) – Apparently they didn’t get the memo that Clinton won.

(2) Entertainment News – The BET Hip Hop Awards were on… I usually recap those but after last year when I officially needed name tags and captions I kinda gave up. Plus like I was going to attempt to catch that foolishness over figuring out who is going to be the next leader of the free world – riiiiiight. (But I may have to catch a few of them cyphers tho) 😉

  • “BET Hip Hop Awards Winners 2015 List: Kendrick Lamar & Big Sean Win Big” (Billboard)


(3) Sports – Maaaaaan, Lamar Odom took a serious “L”, damn son. I was following the debate via Twitter and every several tweets or so I would see this headline: “Lamar Odom found unconscious in a whorehouse.” Ummmm woooow. Eventually I started seeing the word “brothel” but still the word “whorehouse” really packs a punch doesn’t it? The next headlines I started seeing were “Khloe, Kim Kardashian and Kris Jenner race to his side” then “Khloe Kardashian inconsolable as she races to Lamar’s side.” Right, so can I get an update on Lamar?

As of this posting, the latest seemingly accurate info I got is:

  • “Odom, who checked in Saturday, was found unconscious about 3:30 p.m. (6:30 p.m. ET), according to Hof, who also owns the famous Moonlite Bunny Ranch featured in the HBO series “Cathouse.”
  • “[Sheriff] Wehrly said Odom was treated first at Desert View Hospital in the nearby town of Pahrump before being taken by ambulance to Sunrise Hospital in Las Vegas, about 60 miles away. Arrangements had been made to fly Odom to the Las Vegas hospital, but he was too tall to fit in the helicopter, authorities told NBC News.”

Via his rep:

  • “Family and friends are extremely concerned for Lamar,” Odom’s longtime publicist and friend, Eve Sarkisyan, tells Us in a statement. “Please don’t listen to the false information being circulated unofficially. Please respect the family’s privacy during this difficult time.” (USMagazine)

Apparently they stabilized his condition and we’re just waiting for another update. Hope he pulls through and is able to get some real help. Sad.

(4) More Entertainment News T.I. was REAL reckless about the mouth re the possibility of a woman President. How reckless you ask? Well see for yourself:

  • “Just because, every other position that exists, I think a woman could do well. But the president? It’s kinda like, I just know that women make rash decisions emotionally — they make very permanent, cemented decisions — and then later, it’s kind of like it didn’t happen, or they didn’t mean for it to happen. And I sure would hate to just set off a nuke. [Other leaders] will not be able to negotiate the right kinds of foreign policy; the world ain’t ready yet. I think you might be able to the Loch Ness Monster elected before you could [get a woman].”

I KNOW RIGHT????? He has since apologized. Whatever. Wonder what he’s raising his daughters to be…???

(5) More Politics – Mike Huckabee was SUPER ignorant and SUPER racist on Twitter last night. Maybe I’m the only one NOT surprised by this. I mean water is wet right??

    I truly hope that Lamar is okay, but this:

    “Arrangements had been made to fly Odom to the Las Vegas hospital, but he was too tall to fit in the helicopter, authorities told NBC News.”

    …is ridiculous. We can put a man on the moon but there are no ‘one size fits all’ choppers? Daaaaamn.

    T.I. is an idiot. I remember him saying some other misogynistic shit before, like women can’t rap. Something dumb like that. He needs to just sit a dark, soundproof room so that the rest of us don’t need to hear his bullshit.

    What’s the difference between the BET Awards and the BET Hip Hop Awards?? Or is it just an excuse to have two awards shows? Either way, the one time I watched whichever version it was just LONG. All of these shows are becoming increasingly rife with random people, so I don’t blame you for not watching.

      Yeah that too tall for a helicopter info was a bit much. Maybe there is standard size and military size??

      One of my girls pointed out that T.I. is the same person who backed “Iggy Azalea” so yeah he is well known for doing and saying dumb ish.

      Re BET’s weekly awards shows… Lol!! I started to type out a response and then decided to google it! The results via Wiki:

      “The BET Awards were established in 2001 by the Black Entertainment Television network to celebrate African Americans and other minorities in music, acting, sports, and other fields of entertainment over the past year.”

      “The BET Hip Hop Awards are an annual awards show, airing on BET, showcasing hip hop performers, producers and music video directors.”

      Hmmm, one is waaaaay more ratchet than the other and both of them ARE waaaay too long.

        That would make sense! And yeah, I have no idea why it was included, though the brothel owner has been spilling everything, including that, so I suppose nobody cares about keeping things under wraps. The whole situation is sad.

        Didn’t he end up shading Iggy a few weeks ago? Ol’ boy Clifford is confused.

        So…one is basically an extension of the other? SMH. You’d think that they’d pool the money and have one decent event show instead of two low-budget messes. I liked the Bad Boys performance at the one that aired a few months ago, mostly the part where Diddy tripped. 😀

          Re Lamar, a friend who knows the area pointed out that the nearest hospital was 70 miles away so it definitely took much longer to get him to the hospital. So so sad.

          Re Iggy & T.I. – in a nutshell yes, he effectively washed his hands of her publicly but she came back and said well I still have a deal with him sooooo basically we still together. Smh.

          MAAAAAAN when Diddy dropped outta sight I almost choked on pure air! You know someone got their a*s handed to them afterward or worse FIRED! #TakeThat
