While Jada Pinkett Smith and Spike Lee are speaking out about lack of diversity with this year’s Academy Awards, Chris Brown and Young Jeezy are speaking out about the water crisis in Flint, Michigan.

The rapper and r&b crooner both took to social media to address the horrific crisis in Flint, Jeezy, specifically suggesting we should be more worried about the lead contaminated water instead of award shows.

On Tuesday night, Gov. Rick Snyder will make a state of the state speech and address the citizens of Flint who are infuriated by the water crisis.

Back in 2014, the water source was switched from Lake Huron to the Flint River as a cost effective measure. In April 2014, residents started to complain about taste, look and smell of the water, but complaints went ignored.

It’s being reported that due to the crisis, every child in Flint under the age of six, roughly 8,657, is considered to be exposed to lead, which has also led to serious health issues.

      I’m surprised that they’re giving up the privilege of being in the white world that they’ve enjoyed for 20 years.

Hot Or Bothered: Fashion At The 2017 American Music Awards

Published

The night music fans have been waiting for is finally here! The 45th American Music Awards went down right Sunday night at Microsoft Theater in L.A. and a host of your favorite stars hit the red carpet in some looks that were hot and some that had us bothered … let’s start with the hot!

The evening’s host Tracee Ellis Ross sparkled and shined in this burgundy sequined Stella McCartney gown. We’re  sure her mother Diana Ross inspired this look.

Meanwhile her  sister-in-law Ashlee Simpson Ross dazzled in a sparkly number by Christian Siriano.

And of, the evening’s Lifetime Achievement Award winner and honoree – Diana Ross proved why she’s a music and fashion icon in this black gown and hat.

 

Selena Gomez showed off her killer bod wearing a Coach leather minidress and brand new platinum hair.

Also killing it in an LBD – that’s leather black dress, was Ciara wearing Alexandre Vauthier Haute Couture. Ok Ciara!

 

Demi Lovato looked like a goddess in this black sheer strapless gown by Ester Abner.

 

And, Kelly Rowland gave us grecian vibes in this velvet gown with embellished bodice.

But the look that stole the show  DJ Khaled’s son Asahd, looking super adorable in his tiny black suit and Gucci loafers that cost a whopping $275. That’s what we call winning at 1 year old.

But someone whose look was not winning … Nick Cannon. We’re not sure why he was dressed like a Bratz doll, but he needs to stop.

Sadly we also have to request that whoever dressed Pink in this awful tulle Monique Lhuillier dress be fired immediately. Sorry we love you Pink but this dress was a hot damn mess.
