Kanye West wants you to have a nice weekend, and he also wants you to know LeBron James is family. Some in the media questioned the latter after Ye dropped his terrible New Year’s Eve anthem, “Facts.” On the song, the emotional rapper brags about the success of his Adidas campaign while slamming Nike, the company that declined to give him a long-term design deal.
“Nike, Nike treat employees just like slaves/Gave LeBron a billi’ not to run away,” he raps in one the song’s verses.
LeBron was asked about the line and made it clear who he was siding with in the war of words. “Obviously I’m going to side with Nike no matter who it is,” James said of the company that reportedly offered him a billion dollar lifetime contract. “It’s just, it’s family when you talk about Nike, and I’m always on their side no matter what the situation is,” LBJ added.
Kanye didn’t like the direction the media took his LeBron reference so he took to Twitter to clear the air on what some believed was a brewing beef:
“The media tried to make it seem like I was downplaying LeBron on my song FACTS which I would never do, Lebron is fam bottom line.”
If you haven’t heard “Facts” yet, don’t bother. It’s too terrible for us to even bother posting in this article.
The Good, Bad And Ug… Less Flattering At The NAACP Image Awards
This year, the NAACP Image Awards were held on Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day. As we all know, Dr. King had a dream, and for many on the red carpet it was a dream come true. But unfortunately, there were some nightmares … fashion nightmares.
Here’s our list of then stars who were hot and those who left us bothered. First, let’s start with the hot…
And it doesn’t get hotter than Halle Berry showing half her body. Ms. Berry slayed in this Reem Acra gown reminding then youngin’s that she’s still got it.
And speaking of youngin’s A Wrinkle In Time star Storm Reid may be relatively new to the game, but she showed up on the carpet looking like a vet in this adorable Yanina number.
Yara Shahidi also showed up serving #BlackGirlMagic in this beautiful Vera Wang dress.
And Kerry Washington killed it, also wearing black, in this Michael Kors stunner.
But as we know, with the good comes the bad, and the bad this time around came courtesy…
Danielle Brooks, we love our Orange Is The New Black boo, but this Michael Costello look just didn’t work for her.
We also love Ava DuVernay, but unfortunately this Greta Constatine jumpsuit didn’t have us jumping for joy.
Lil Mama left us wanting more in this navy blue feathery frock … actually it may be her hair that left us disappointed.
And adding to our disappointment was Letoya Luckett wearing a purple gown that had scallops and bows and slits … oh my!
Do you agree with our hots and nots?
