“It’s Very Hurtful And Extremely Upsetting”: Jennifer Hudson On Claims She “Sacrificed” Family Members To Be In Illuminati
If you ask me, all that sounds silly as hell and quite disrespectful, and Hudson has actually heard about such claims. In an interview to help promote her upcoming new album JHUD (coming out in August) with DC’s Majic 102.3, Hudson addressed them and says that as a Christian woman, people are really crossing the line:
“I think people find a way to discredit people in everything you do. Nothing is ever what it really is. And at the end of the day, we all work hard for what we get and what we do just like anyone else. And it’s unfair that some people would be that cruel to impose such negativity on things that is done from a positive place and perspective. And t’s very hurtful and extremely upsetting. Especially coming from a Christian standpoint.
Every time I hear stuff like that, I’m like ‘You will not take the credit for God’s work and give it to Satan. Not on my watch. Not on my watch.’ So again, it’s extremely upsetting. There’s so much to be said about that, but you don’t have the time, and neither do I.”
This isn’t the first time Hudson had to confront such rumors about herself. In 2011, she told fans this during a U-Stream session:
“I’m so glad someone brought this Illuminati mess up because only a child of God would address it. That is the most ignorant thing I have ever heard in my life. And it’s offensive because basically what? The people that are here today don’t deserve to be where they are? What, we didn’t work for it? So I find—and I hate to go there—but I find it’s those that can’t make it that would probably join Illuminati, or whoever that is, to get somewhere.
Don’t listen to that type of stuff, don’t follow that stuff because those people are only luring you in to become a part of some mess like that, so know that you’re only falling victim. That’s their way of gaining [followers]. I’d advise you to stay away from it. Those who are reading it are falling into it. It could not be more untrue.”
“She Was With A Black Guy And Now That Baby Is Black!” Airplane Passenger Attacks Kim K. And North West
North West hasn’t been in the world long, but she’s already experiencing the ills of racism.
North’s mother, Kim Kardashian, recalled the incident during this past Sunday’s episode of “Keeping Up With the Kardashians.” According to Kim, the incident turned the first class flight home to Los Angeles into “the trip from Hell.”
“Mom had the baby, I fell asleep, I woke up to this woman screaming, ‘Kanye West’s baby!’ The woman is screaming at my child, I jump up,” Kim stated, before her sister Khloe interjected: “I would’ve punched her in her face.”
“No, we were on a plane. I wanted to,” Kim replied. “It was crazy.”
The racist passenger wasn’t hard to notice as she started yelling and making her feelings known about Kim and North.
“This lady stood up in the cabin in first class and yelled at the top of her lungs, ‘She’s with a black guy, and that baby is black! And you need to shut that black baby up!’” Kris told Khloe.
I would say, ‘Hashtag, fact my baby is black. Hashtag, I only like black c**k!’ That’s what I would say!,” Khloe told her mom.
Kim’s infamous sex tape with Ray J was brought up by the woman, according to Kim, who noted that the woman shouted “‘And she has a sex video with a black guy. How disgusting, with a black guy.’ Like going on and on.”

Sometimes even stars can take themselves a little too seriously and request the oddest things in exchange for making an appearance or scheduled performance at an event. Check out some of these celebrities with insanely ridiculous demands.
Mariah Carey made her musical debut almost two and a half decades ago. Since then she’s sold over 200 million albums worldwide and is one of the best-selling artists of all time. That’s why the “Butterfly” singer had no qualms about her over-the-top demands. Before appearing on a talk show, Carey demanded a “staircase assistant” to help her navigate the steps and a $1,700 bottle of champagne. A recent concert rider revealed a request for a three-seat couch that should be a plain color, no busy patterns; eight tall, leafy plants; two vases of white roses; and a private bathroom.
The birthday girl was decked out in a fringe dress, strappy sandals, and a floral headband, all of which Kardashian posted on Instagram before putting the look on North:
Check out a few more photos from the Kidchella party for North West below:
Baby North West was joined by family and friends to celebrate her first year of life with a mini-Coachella themed party complete with a ferris wheel. “Kidchella” wouldn’t be complete without mocassins, glowsticks, and two stages featuring performances by Kylie Jenner and Jaden Smith.
The event was held in aunt, Kourtney Kardashian’s backyard where guests were greeted with tie-dyed wristbands before entering the grounds filled with various “teepee” booths where they could get their hair braided, faces painted, as well as tie-dyed t-shirts and bandannas.
A menu of sweet birthday treats included churros, snow cones and cotton candy. And we can’t forget the party favors: custom made Yeezus shirts. After all, what would a Kardashian-West family birthday party be without a little publicity?
Nori’s birthday was officially on June 15, but New York Daily News reports with the occasion falling on Fathers’ Day, the family decided to keep the celebration laid back for the time being.
Check out a few pics of the fun including a video of the Kardashian Klan performing Kanye’s “The Good Life” below, guests Blac Chyna and son Cairo, and a cute party-goer named “Ryan” rocking his party favor:
One song can make or break an artist’s career. The right song can put them on the map, but the wrong song can send them to court, which was the case with these artists sued over their songs.
The Notorious B.I.G.
Even though he’s been dead for almost two decades, The Notorious B.I.G. still isn’t exempt from being sued over his music. Lee Hutson, former lead singer of The Impressions, is suing Biggie’s estate over the alleged illegal use of one of his songs. Hutson accuses the Brooklyn rapper of using a sample of “Can’t Say Enough About Mom” in his 1994 song “The What” featuring Method Man and he only noticed it two years ago. Bad Boy Records filed a pre-emptive claim a few days before Hutson saying any claim about a sample is past the statute of limitations. Negotiation between the two sides broke down and it looks like the suit will be headed to court.

Happy Happy Father’s Day - Beyoncé
Dave Chappelle Says He Always Knew Kanye West Would Be A Star…And The Most Arrogant Rapper Of All Time
Dave Chappelle appeared on the Tonight Show recently and pulled everyone’s cards from Common to Talib Kweli. He also talked about linking Jimmy Fallon to The Roots, being mistaken for a “lost Root” earlier in his career, and the one phone call that proved a then unknown Kanye West was destined for greatness and a long career of feeling himself.
Why are we not surprised that Kanye believed he was star before he was technically a star? I guess he’s living proof of if you believe it you can be it. Dave Chappelle is a fool as always. Peep the comedy below:
Coming into the world of show business, stars know their lives will be dissected under the microscope by the media and the public but unfortunately these celebrity offsprings were also unfairly targeted and picked on online.
Blue Ivy Carter
Before she was even born, Blue Ivy was one of the most talked about celebrity spawns. Parents Jay Z and Beyonce have done a great job of shielding their daughter Blue Ivy from the limelight during her first year but as soon as the R&B singer started sharing candid snapshots of mother and child, people started talking. Now the talk has reached a fever pitch in the form of a petition on Change.org to get Blue Ivy’s parents to comb her hair. The petition’s alleged creator Jasmine Toliver has publicly defended herself saying it was a joke and that she is a fan of natural hair.

Business Insider went to the experts at CelebrityTalent.net to get some accurate figures on how much it would cost to have the celebrity of your dreams — say — spend some time at your Saturday night Netflix party with you and a few of your girls. Let’s just say that you’ll need to kick your side hustle up a notch if you want to afford some of these prices.
Let’s start with the crazy. Prince commands $1.5 million to $2 million dollars. If you made the song “1999″ and turn up at the French Open with a scepter, then I guess you can ask for that much. He might actually be telling this woman that the price just went up to $3 million.
In the $1 million to $1.5 million range are Jay Z, Usher, Pink, Miley Cyrus and Bruno Mars (among many others). And below that, you’ve got Mariah Carey asking for $750,000 to $1 million along with Tiger Woods, Katy Perry, Stevie Wonder and Pharrell. Then between $500,000 to $750,000, you’ve got Alicia Keys, Jon Stewart, Mary J. Blige, Janet Jackson and Lenny Kravitz. BI has the complete list from CelebrityTalent.net.
You might be surprised to learn that Kanye only asks for (only!) $350,000 to $500,000 and you still have to pay between $250,000 and $350,000 for Earth Wind & Fire.
You’ll also notice that a lot of actors are noticeably absent from this list. According to the article, musicians command higher prices, presumably because they’re actually going to be performing while actors would just take a bunch of pictures. Denzel Washington will cost somewhere between $250,000 and $350,000. So will Halle Berry, Hugh Jackman and Leonardo Di Caprio. Many of these celebs want exact figures worked out before any negotiations get anywhere.
More reasonably, if you’ve got $10,000 to $20,000 burning a hole in your pocket, you can spend some time with Maury Povich (maybe he’ll make some DNA test announcements at your next BBQ?), Sisqo (he’ll perform the “Thong Song,” which would actually be so worth it), or Jada Pinkett-Smith. Maybe she can tell you why Jaden wore that super hero costume to Kimye’s wedding.
