words and artwork by Badhaftu Kadir


It seems Twitter is finally listening to its users, recently announcing that @ names and media attachments will not be counted towards your 140 characters. Another change is that you'll basically be able to retweet yourself  which will probably turn into an annoying feature quickly.


Another year another H&M brand collaboration this year they've teamed up with Kenzo to have you and all your friends look like a celebrity but not quite for an exorbitant amount of money.


Free at last free at last god almighty, Gucci Mane is free at last. After being in prison for almost the last three years on gun charges the rapper was released early and took to Instagram to thank fans and show off his new body.


It seems the words of philosopher Waka Flocka Flame “got a main bitch and a mistress…”were put to life by Ozzy Osbourne, whose daughter put  his alleged mistress on blast on twitter this week..


Rihanna can now add sunglass designer to her repertoire after debuting some of the glasses she designed in collaboration with Dior.


Jay Z not one to stay quiet for too long finally spoke up as he hopped on the All The Way Up remix with Fat Joe and Remy Ma rapping (Ed. Note and borrowing a line from Guru in the process) “You know you made it when the fact that your marriage made it is worth millions / Lemonade is a popular drink and it still is.”


Rapper Troy Ave has been arrested and charged with attempted murder and criminal possession of a firearm after a video surfaced of him opening fire at a TI concert in New York. The rapper shot himself and an affiliate in VIP .


Softball star Jennie Finch will make history as the first women to manage a men's professional baseball team, becoming the guest manager for the independent Bridgeport Bluefish.


The Weeknd and Belly cancelled their Jimmy Kimmel performance after finding out they would perform the same night Trump as to appear on the show. Belly cited his faith and Trump's incongruent views as the reason for canceling.


Meek Mill just won't let his beef with Drake die. Hopping on the all the way up beat to take some shots like "This is hip-hop, you ain't write it don't record it / I don't know how they getting down across the border, " and  "Views from the projects, n**** I'm the prospect." I’m all for a good beef with excitement and fire bars but this is dead please leave it be Meek, this Tyra Banks gif says it all.


Like most Americans I can only watch The Bachelorette after a heavy dose of wine, but this season's drama already seems to be heating up. Jordan Rodgers, the younger brother of Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers is on the show and already seems like a front runner receiving the first impression rose and a kiss. Though it looks like one person isn't happy. His ex-girlfriend  blasted him on instagram for possible cheating. Can't wait to see how this plays out.
