What better way to celebrate dethroning iconic singer Aretha Franklin than going full twerk mode?

Nicki Minaj just surpassed Franklin as the female artist with the most Hot 100 Billboard hits. So to commemorate the special occasion, the female emcee posted a video, twerking on Instagram.

The rapper, clad in a red latex ensemble and knee high scrappy heels, captioned the visual: “When u find out u just became the only woman in the history of billboard to have 76 Hot 100 billboard entries.”

Before the twerking post, the Trinidadian beauty posted, “I tell ya… God said he ain’t done showing off yet. Walked off stage to find out history was made yet again today…. To my fans: I fkn love u guys more than I’ll ever be able to put in words. Thank u so much for your unwavering love & support.”

Nicki might have the most hits locked up, but the title for best celebrity twerker — we’re gonna give that to Amber Rose.

Franklin, by the way, held the record for almost 40 years with 73 chart-making hits.


Exclusive: The Bullet Scars That Will Forever Haunt Sheryl Lee Ralph’s Son, Etienne Maurice



Sheryl Lee Ralph shared a graphic photo on Instagram earlier this week of her son, Etienne Maurice, laying in a hospital bed bandaged up from bullet wounds. The purpose of the image was to be yet another voice calling to end gun violence.

On Wednesday, students across the country walked out of class to protest against gun violence, something that hit home for Ralph four years ago. “This mother wants #gunreform now! #guncontrol now,” she wrote.

It was during a night out in West Philadelphia that Ralph’s then 22-year-old child was robbed at gunpoint and shot three times; twice in the leg and one which grazed his forehead.

So as Ralph joined Wednesday’s national conversation about gun laws, HipHollywood talked exclusively with Etienne who shared exactly what went down the night a gun could have taken his life for good.

“I was shot four years ago, November 9 … I was black out drunk. The next thing I know I remember I woke up in the hospital, doctor said I had two bullet holes in my leg and a grazed bullet hole above my eyebrow.”

Maurice, who was robbed for his iPhone and his wallet, went on to tell us that this is something that he is reminded of constantly. “Having been shot is something that I carry with me every day. I still have numbness at the bottom of my leg from the nerve damage.”

And while he will always remember how he felt knowing his life almost ended, Etienne had a hard time fathoming how his famous mother felt. “We had the conversation about it last week and she said she peed on herself,” he told us.

For Maurice, he’s proud to see young children use their voices to make change. “There’s so many angles where we can talk about gun violence and how it’s effecting different communities,” he said. “Gun reform needs to take place now.”

Since that night, he hasn’t picked up a drink and has been now sober for four years. As for the suspects, a father-son duo, they are behind bars for attempted man slaughter.
