R&B singer Tank finally had enough when he went in on an Instagram follower, regarding comments that were made about his girl friend, Zena Foster. A follower came after her commenting,

When people post things in an open forum it allows the public to freely express themselves … She looks like a man in the face.”

Tank quickly defended Foster and replied back to the social media user writing:

“Then I’ll express myself. What is this chiapet hair wig you have on? Totally ill advised! Your chin! Think we can get that shaved down? I know a few doctors that do great work. I’m sure that outfit works too so I won’t even ask the designer. After all these things get taken care of then maybe just maybe someone will get you pregnant and you too can do a pregnancy shoot AND everybody can talk crazy about you! God bless.”

But after some reflection the singer regrets giving into his haters. “Yes, actually a little bit, I do. For some one who looks up to Tank, that’s not something I want them to see me like that”, he told us at The 2014  Soul Train Awards in Las Vegas while he was preparing to perform his Kool and The Gang Tribute.
“I am performing “Get Down On It”…music I grew up listening to, iconic figures, and it’s amazing to be able to honor them”.
Tank is in full swing working a new R&B album set to out next year, that is more R&B Thug than it is his usual sweet love songs.
2015 is already shaping up to be a good year for the singer, as his baby boy is due in January and he has plans to have 5 more as soon as possible, click over to the next page to find out exactly how he plans to pull that off!

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.
