Another day, another poorly handled domestic violence case in the NFL. Josh Brown, the kicker for the New York Giants, openly admitted to abusing his wife. This puts him as the latest in a long line of football-playing abusers. After Ray Rice you would think they would learn, but why should they when people will continue watching. Also, who cares because women aren't people unless they're affecting the bottom line right?!?! 

Azealia Banks was forced to leave Russell Crowe's party this past weekend after being invited by RZA. Multiple reports have come in but some show the rapper having to leave for erratic behaviors, others for a misunderstanding. Either way Banks and RZA have yet to come to agreeable endings both posting their side on facebook.

Madonna has lost her damn mind. She is offering blowjobs to people who vote for Hillary. Really though, what can we expect from a lady who casually calls her white teen son the n-word in an Instagram comment. 

Donald had another quotable in the past debate, sparking some controversy to make a Hillary Janet meme that is wonderful.

R.I.P to anyone that was waiting for all the Frank Ocean Grammys to pour in. Him and his team did not submit his work in on time and some sources are saying it was on purpose. On the tails of Kanye’s boycott, you have to think to yourself if its going to become a larger protest on the award show itself.

Ex-frenemies Shad "Bow Wow" Moss and Soulja Boy are releasing joint album this week giving us the broke man's Kanye and Jay. Though as I recall Shad retired earlier this year, so this could get tricky.

Bob Dylan is the epitome of not giving a fuck. He ignored the Nobel Peace prize committee after receiving an award for literature but graciously posted it to his website. 

As if this election cycle couldn't get anymore wild, Waka Flocka shook things up after releasing a parody video with running mate Ric Flair. Flair mispronounced Waka’s name no less than 5 times and seems a little drunk, but at this point it's on par with this election season.

Vic Mensa shared a poignant video for his rebellious anti-police brutality song 16 shots.
