They say imitiation is the sincerest form of flattery, but Dave Chappelle isn’t feeling it. Instead, the groundbreaking comedian would prefer if comics Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele would run him his credit for making their Comedy Central show Key & Peele a success.

Speaking to Gayle King during an interview on CBS This Morning to coincide with the release of Chappelle’s new Netflix comedy specials, Chappelle discussed the tension he feels with the fellow comics and their series, which aired on Comedy Central years after Chappelle’s Chappelle’s Show went off the air.

“When I did Chappelle’s Show, there were certain conventions of the show that the network resisted. I fought the network very hard so that those conventions could come to fruition,” Chappelle told King. “So like the first episode, I do that black white supremacist sketch. And it’s like, ‘Well, that’s 10 minutes long. It should be five minutes long.’ Why should it be five minutes long? Like, these types of conventions. I fought very hard. … So when I watch Key & Peele and I see they’re doing a format that I created, and at the end of the show, it says, ‘Created by Key & Peele,’ that hurts my feelings.”

Chappelle also blasted the duo for copying his show, during the Roots Picnic festival in New York last summer saying, “I’ve watched Key and Peele do my show the last five f*cking years.”

Despite not being so fond of his de facto successors, Chappelle said he’s a fan of their work.  “No. I’m a fan of their show,” he quipped.

So, do you think they owe him a thank you? Let us know in the comments below.

Chappelle’s two stand-up specials, The Age of Spin and Deep in the Heart of Texas, hit Netflix March 21.

Rihanna Admits To Having A “Fluctuating Body Type” — And This Is How She Deals With It

Published

Earlier this year, rumors were running rampant that Rihanna was pregnant. It became quickly evident that the singer was not carrying, but we are now learning that the apparent weight gain might’ve have ben due to fluctuation.

During an interview with The Cut, Badgalriri suggested she has a “fluctuating body type,” but that she’s learned how to dress for the variations. “I actually have had the pleasure of a fluctuating body type, where one day I can literally fit into something that is bodycon, and then the next day—the next week—I need something oversized,” she said while promoting her new Fenty x Puma line.

She added, “I need a little crop here and a high-waist there to hide that part, you know?”

The singer went on to explain that because people’s bodies are constantly changing, fashion should not be mundane. “I really pay attention every day when I go into the closet about what’s working for my body that morning,” she explained. “I feel like that’s how everyone should go after fashion, because it’s an individual thing.”

She continued, “And then, if you take it further, it’s like: What week are you having? You having a skinny week? You having a fat week? Are we doing arms this week? We doing legs this week? We doing oversized?”

The fashion designer added, “I love to play with silhouettes as well, but I think it’s important to make sure that you wear the thing that works for your body the best, and that’s flattering.”

Rihanna is not just a fashionista, but she is also wildly confident in every garment she rocks. Confidence is major for the singer, who expressed to the fashion outlet that it’s men in black who rule dressing with confidence.

Yes. This is new for me; this is recent. I love a man in black,” she explained. “It’s so sexy and mysterious; confident and secure—all the things I love about a man. So, I’m into that.”

Ri celebrated the launch of her new line just last week. Click here to see photos.
