As one of the foremost repositories for metadata in the burgeoning sociological science of wypipology, Black Twitter often provides empirical evidence that validates certain collectively assumed hypotheses as actual fact. Today we examine the theory of line stepping.
Well, nobody had to ask how Kevin Hart’s night went. The comedian apparently had the time of his life at the Super Bowl LII on Sunday, drinking and celebrating as his home team, the Philadelphia Eagles, played their way to victory in an astonishing upset against the New England Patriots.
The denizens of that most promising place of perfected pettiness known as Black Twitter have spoken up loud and clear about the Super Bowl, Justin Timberlake and Miss Janet Jackson—or, as one talented scribe says, “Saint Damita Jo.”
Updated Sunday, Feb. 4, 2018, 11:10 a.m. EST: After what proved to be some serious blowback after rumors that Justin Timberlake would be using a Prince hologram for his Super Bowl halftime show, longtime Prince collaborator Sheila E. confirmed last night that there would be none.
This is what you need to get your Friday evening started on the right note: beautiful images of black men, their faces glowing, their teeth gleaming, happiness pouring from their very beings. #BlackMenSmiling is trending at No. 1 on Twitter right now, and it is the best thing ever.
Temptations singer Dennis Edwards died in a Chicago hospital Friday after a long illness, just one day before he would have turned 75.
Black comediennes have a special place in my heart. From Whoopi Goldberg and Mo’Nique to Tiffany Haddish and every other melanin-heavy sista onstage, there’s incredible depth and a tooth-and-nail fight in how they got to where they are. It’s inspiring, to say the least.
Black Twitter is an almighty force that’s not only been able to make the best memes the internet has ever seen but has also managed to get movies made and racists fired, as well as expose the horrific trend of police brutality across the country. It’s so big, it can’t be contained.
Prince Phillip Mitchell, also known as Leon Mitchell, isn’t the sort of household name that Kanye West and Solange are. Still, if you listened to Kanye’s Graduation (the 2007 album went double platinum, so it’s safe to say that most of us have), Mitchell’s work will be familiar to you; his song “If We Can’t Be Lovers”…
It would appear that there was more to the Mo’Nique-vs.-Netflix story than we were all aware of, and there was more at play than just the paltry $500,000 they offered her to do a comedy special for them.
After a breakout year in 2017, Tiffany Haddish is coming into 2018 hot.
Say, lil bitch, you can’t fuck with her if you wanted to. She still winning. She is everywhere. Cardi B owns you. If haters watch the game on Sunday, they gon’ have an attitude. ’Cause Cardi in an Amazon commercial, what your fave gon’ do?
There are many things in life that people bounce back from. The loss of a job, the end of a relationship, a short illness, a sports-related injury and a bad first date are all things you can rebound from—given enough time. You know what you don’t rebound from? Oprah excommunicating you.
Turns out that Ellen DeGeneres solves mysteries part time. The talk show host got forever first lady Michelle Obama to dish on the mysterious gift that Melania Trump brought with her during the administration switch on Inauguration Day.
I have wanted DMX to win ever since I heard his studio album It’s Dark and Hell Is Hot. He rapped with so much force and aggression, it was hard not to champion whatever cause he was yelling for. This is why it saddens me to find out that DMX is on his way back to jail.
We all knew that Black Panther was going to be the best thing to hit theaters EVER. But just in case you were worried that it was being overhyped (how dare you), or people are just saying that because it’s a black superhero (yes, but still, how dare you?), it turns out that writer-director Ryan Coogler DELIVERED,…
It must be nice to be geriatric and rich. In the case of Quincy Jones, the 84-year-old proudly brags about the bevy of young women across the country who get to massage his shrinkled-up balls.
I usually try not to pay attention to the Kardashians, because they are a family full of well-known stunt queens. They have proved time and time again that they will do anything for a storyline and attention—whether that attention is positive or negative. Kim’s latest stunt is no exception, but it deserves to be…
The red carpet will be awash in blackness Monday night as the gorgeous melanated cast of Marvel’s Black Panther hits the red carpet for the Red Carpet World Premiere.
Whenever I’m feeling down and out, I have discovered a cure for depression that doesn’t involve narcotics, thousands of dollars in therapist fees or finding a USB outlet to recharge my sex robot. (No, I don’t have a sex robot. I’m still waiting for Apple to come out with one because I might be desperate, but I’ll…
