Kanye West Goes On Epic Twitter Rant About Nelson Mandela Scandal

Published

on

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.’”

Is Trey Songz Completely Out Of Control?!

Published

on

Trey Songz used to be a singer known for sexually suggestive lyrics and his panache for saying “yuuuup.” Now, he may be known more as an R&B singer with a possible rage problem…

Trigga Trey has been accused of smacking a girl in the face with her own phone and now that accuser is suing for $50,000. The unidentified woman says that while at Philadelphia’s Vanity Grand Cabaret strip club she sought to get a snapshot with the singer, but he didn’t oblige. Instead, according to the woman, he pushed her phone back into her face and caused her glasses to break.

If true, this isn’t Trey’s first time getting way too aggressive for no d@mn reason. Just last year he became so upset over authorities ending his show in Detroit that he threw microphones and speakers from the stage. Unfortunately, he also injured a police officer in the process. In August, he reached a plea deal in that case and got his felony assault charge reduced to just two counts of disturbing the peace.

So, back to the fan who just wanted a photo. It looks like she’s only seeking coin and not criminal charges. And in Songz’s defense he does take pictures with some fans (see below), so maybe it was just the way she asked.
