Shots Fired: Lil Mo Wants Keyshia Cole to ‘Bow Down’ and Stop Tweeting

Published

Lil Mo is in full support of Beyonce’s leaked tracked “Bow Down/I Been On” and wants emotional R&B singers (i.e. Keyshia Cole) to stop taking it so personal.

HipHollywood caught up with Mo to discuss her new role on TV One’s spinoff reality show, R&B Divas: LA, and couldn’t help but ask what she thought about the song and all of the criticism it’s received, namely from other female singers. “I was like YES, Bey! … If she’s been in this game walking in stilettos since 15, she’s a mom, she owns a business, if you take it personal then maybe she was talking to you. I didn’t take offense to it.”

Mo, who too has been in the game since she was a teen, went on to address Keyshia Cole’s tweet about the song saying, “If you can’t handle it get off Twitter, who is your publicist, who is tweeting for you.”

“If Gwyneth Paltrow can say, ‘n*ggas in Paris,’ Beyonce can say, ‘Bow down b*tches,'” she added. “I would have said it, and I wish somebody woulda tried to come for me.”

YES, Mo!

5 Reasons You Need To Know Daveed Diggs

Published

on

If you don’t know the name Daveed Diggs you will now! The Oakland native is definitely one to watch in Hollywood. Here are five reasons why.

1. He has already taken Broadway by storm.

In 2016 Diggs nabbed a Tony and a Grammy award for his role as Marquis de Lafayette/ Thomas Jefferson in “Hamilton.” Believe it or not Diggs didn’t even audition for the role. While substitute teaching in Marin County, CA he met Hamilton’s eventual star and creator Lin Manuel-Miranda and director, Thomas Kail who invited him to join their free-style rap group and later helped them craft the fast-rapping revolutionary. 

2. He’s funny. 

Diggs is proving he’s also got some amazing comedy chops with two memorable recurring sitcom roles: one as Perry, the crush du jour for Kimmy (Ellie Kemper) on Netflix’s Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, and the other on ABC’s black-ish as Johan, the free-spirited brother of Rainbow (Tracee Ellis Ross). In fact, Black-ish creator Kenya Barris wrote the role for Diggs after being “blown away” by his performance on stage.

3. His first feature film Wonder is in theaters now.

In the film based on the New York Times best-selling novel of the same name, Diggs plays Mr. Browne the fifth grade teacher at the school where lead Jacob Tremblay attends. Diggs landed the role after wrapping his run in “Hamilton” and told HH it was like a crash course in film acting alongside Julia Roberts and Owen Wilson.

4. He’s a rapper. 

His experimental noise rap group Clipping has garnered a major cult following on Youtube. Their LP CLPPNG was an Album Of The Week back in 2014. And in 2016 the trio performed on The Late Late Show with James Corden to promote the release of their six-track EP Wriggle. 

5. He is executive producer of ABC’s The Mayor.  

The show about a struggling young rapper (Brandon Micheal Hall) who runs for local office (and wins) to boost his popularity, debuted this Fall and already is garnering wave reviews. Not surprisingly Diggs and his Clipping bandmates William Hutson and Jonathan Snipes, also produce all the music for the show.
