Macklemore released a tracked titled “White Privilege,” a song from he and Ryan Lewis’ upcoming album, This Unruly Mess I’ve Made. But the track is garnering a lot of buzz for its lyrics dissing Iggy Azalea and Miley Cyrus.

On the song, which talks about several topics including, racism and Black Lives Matter, Macklemore takes aim at Azalea and Cyrus, rapping:  “You’ve exploited and stolen the music, the moment/ The magic, the passion, the fashion, you toy with/ The culture was never yours to make better/ You’re Miley, you’re Elvis, you’re Iggy Azalea.”

Iggy, who has been accused of “stealing black culture,” got wind of the lyric and had a few words for Macklemore. When asked by a fan how she felt about the song, the Australian rapper tweeted back:

“He shouldn’t have spent the last 3 yrs having friendly convos and taking pictures together at events etc if those were his feelings.”

In a statement about the song, Macklemore explained, “This song is the outcome of an ongoing dialogue with musicians, activists, and teachers within our community in Seattle and beyond. Their work and engagement was essential to the creative process.”

Iggy also made headlines on Thursday after suggesting via Twitter that her record label Virgin/EMI felt the “response to my viral record “zillon” wasnt good enough” therefore wouldn’t allow her to put out a viral video for the track.

This Unruly Mess I’ve Made will be released February 26.

Finally! Taraji P. Henson Confirms Relationship With NFL Baller Kelvin Hayden

Published

on

Taraji is finally letting the world know what it already knew – she’s in a relationship with NFL cornerback Kelvin Hayden. Henson dished the (cold) tea while on Essence’s Yes, Girl! podcast saying that the reason she kept it a secret was because she’s a private person.

“I’m not the type to blast my personal business. But, you know, I think that’s important for people to know. I’m happy. I’m very very happy. I just am,” the “Empire” actress shared.

Rumors first circulated in December 2015 about Henson and 34-year-old Hayden, who played for the Chicago Bears and the Indianapolis Colts, after photos surfaced of the pair holding hands in Miami. Though Hayden has appeared on her Instagram feed, the Golden Globe winner never confirmed the intimate details until now.

“You know, we’ve been together for two years. No one would really know that because I don’t really blast my info like that. But I’m very happy,” she said.

Taraji girl we could tell. The Hidden Figures actress even broke out singing, “Finally! It has happened to me,”—quoting the CeCe Peniston‘s song “Finally.”

Henson also revealed the couple will be celebrating the holidays together with the new puppy Hayden gifted her with as an early Christmas present.

“Big #KBall with Lil squirt #KBall watching daddy brush his teeth! 😩😂😂😂,” she wrote, teasing a photo of her boo and new pup.

And speaking of Christmas, in case you missed it Taraji hosted her “White Hot Holidays” special on Fox Wednesday night. Peep the clips of Henson having some fun with her celebrity guests including Method Man, DJ Khaled, Neicy Nash, Salt-N-Pepa and The Ying Yang Twins.
