Public schools in Chicago definitely don’t have any problems with Chance the Rapper, because the 23-year-old just did something major.
On Monday, the Grammy Award winner announced that he will be donating $1 million to Chicago public schools. Yes, you read that correctly.
During a press conference at Wescott Elementary School on the South Side of Chicago, Chance suggested “While I’m frustrated and disappointed in the governor’s inaction, that will not stop me from doing all I can to support Chicago’s most valuable resource: its children three blocks from where I was raised.”
“Today, I am proud to announce I am donating $1 million to Chicago public schools,” he said during the conference, which was also streamed via Instagram Live.
Chance’s announcement comes on the heels of a meeting he had with Illinois Gov. Bruce Rauner to discuss CPS funding. In December, Rauner vetoed a plan to allot $215 million to Chicago Public Schools. Following the meeting, Chance said that Rauner’s answers to his immediate questions were “vague.”
Chance said during the conference, “He has since called me over the weekend. Our talks were unsuccessful.” He also expressed frustratoin that the Republican politician “vetoed the funding to close out the school year. Our kids should not be held hostage because of political positioning.”
Chancelor Bennett, the rapper’s legal name, is one class act.
Dr. Heavenly Explains Her ‘If My Husband Cheated He Didn’t Mean To’ Philosophy
Dr. Heavenly Kimes has an interesting philosophy on cheating … but then again we’re not surprised.
If you watch Married To Medicine then you know the successful Atlanta, GA dentist dotes on her husband, who she affectionately calls “daddy” and the two have a pretty solid marriage. So much so, that Kimes believes if he ever cheated on her he didn’t mean to do it.
Kimes made that proclamation after news broke that Dr. Jackie’s husband was having an affair, and of course she had the ladies scratching their heads. HipHollywood sat down with her to get more insight on her viewpoint. Here’s what she had to say.
“I said something that I think a lot of people feel but would not say it, because it’s not a politically correct thing to say,” she explained. “I said if my husband cheated he would not mean to do it. I stand by it, it may sound silly, it may sound funny, I’m not trying to be funny, I don’t think he would have meant to do it.”
“I can’t say it was her, I’m not going to put it all on her, but it had to have been something to make that man go that far,” she adds referring to the other woman. “Maybe I’m naive but I don’t think my husband would just cheat on me and mean to cheat.”
To her credit, Kimes is also a certified relationship coach and has been dishing her advice (solicited or not) to the other wives since season 2. She ended her explanation comparing cheating to a person on a diet. The analogy was pretty hilarious, but actual made a lot of sense.
“I like to compare sex to food because they go together,” she says. “If you’re hungry and you know you’re on a diet and you’re really really trying really hard and somebody comes with a buffet of your favorite foods and lays it all out for you and starts putting … you didn’t mean to eat it but you ate it.”
