Kanye West took to Twitter on Monday morning to address the Nelson Mandela scandal that hit the Internet this weekend.
“Despite recent media reports, I’ve never said anything to dishonor or trivialize the life or transition of one of the most inspiring leaders.”
“I’d like to address the false stories and noise that have been engineered by the media.”
“At a young age my mother taught me the importance of his work. Mandela sacrificed his life for the betterment of mankind.”
“Thank you, Mandela, for your life’s work and may it serve as a guiding light to illuminate our future.”
On Friday, The Daily Currant published a story claiming that West called himself the next Nelson Mandela. The news site attributed the following quote to the rapper.
“Mandela was working in South Africa, which has, like what, six people? I started my magic here in the USA and then I took my business global … I liberate minds with my music. That’s more important than liberating a few people from apartheid or whatever.’”
Turns out the statement was totally false and the site made the quote up to garner attention and traffic.
Reality Show Curse Strikes Again? Lyrica Anderson & A1 May Be Searching For A Storyline, Not A Separation
Here we go again. Another reality TV couple bites the dust … or gets hella dramatic on social media in order to secure a new storyline. You decide!
Love and Hip Hop: Hollywood star Lyrica Anderson had everyone talking when she took to Snapchat to post this little message.
The singer/songwriter outed her husband A1 Bentley as a cheater and vowed that she was #single … all on Snapchat. We’re calling BS, and here’s why — Princess Love. This whole “my man is cheating so I’m outing him on social media” must be in the Love & Hip Hop playbook. Ray J’s wife pulled the same stunt just a few weeks ago and we all know how that ended … with them back together. Honestly, this happens every season, and every season we fall for it. Well, no more.
Lyrica, we know you just put out new music and you want everyone to hear it, but this ain’t the way, sis. And A1, nice try with the whole, “I’m going to delete all her pics on IG” move, but we’ve been here, done that. We not falling for these antics anymore so it would be really dope if y’all would stop playing games and just be a happy married couple. Save the forced drama for Joseline Hernandez.
