A Proud Day For Eminem

Published

Iconic rapper Eminem now has something else to celebrate other than the success of his comeback single, “Berzerk.”

His daughter, Hailie Scott, won the title of Homecoming Queen at Chippewa Valley High School over the weekend, giving her name a good rep, but this time on her own terms.

The 17-year-old was all smiles in a local news report as she received her sparkling crown and posed for pictures with the homecoming King. She looks absolutely stunning and we can’t help but notice the little girl, who fans have constantly heard of throughout the years, is all grown up.

Hailie was more thrilled to win the title. Although her Twitter is private, a friend retweeted her account  along with some congratulations.

We’re sure Papa Em is proud and we are too. Keep it up Hailie!

Exclusive: Sorry, Folks, Diddy Did NOT Offer H&M Model A Contract

Last week rumors started circulating that Diddy had offered Liam Mango, the young model featured in the H&M ad a Sean John modeling contract. Unfortunately those reports, as sweet as they sound, aren’t true.

Diddy spoke to reporters backstage before a tapping of his new show The Four  and clarified what really happened.

“I didn’t actually offer a modeling contract to him I told my people to reach out to him so we could use him in the next shoot that we do,” he explained.  “But with that being said, I think that what we’re seeing is just a general insensitivity to how we feel you know. I think that H&M is going to feel the results of that.”

H&M has issued an official apology for featuring Mango on their website in a “Coolest Monkey In The Jungle” hoodie, saying in a statement : “We sincerely apologize for offending people with this image of a printed hooded top. The image has been removed from all online channels and the product will not be for sale in the United States. We believe in diversity and inclusion in all that we do and will be reviewing all our internal policies accordingly to avoid any future issues.”

After photos of the young boy hit the web, folks started speaking out against the retailer calling them racist and insensitive. But one person not feeling that way was Mango’s mother. She posted her thoughts Facebook questioning what all the fuss is about. “I really don’t understand but not coz am choosing not to but because it’s not my way of thinking, sorry.”

She and the boys father Terry Odhiambo have since had a change of heart appearing on ITV on Monday, saying they don’t think that there’s ever an “overreaction when it comes to racism”.

They also said they’ve had to move from their home in Sweden, and haven’t been able to live a normal life since the controversy started.
