Nicki Minaj Takes To Twitter To Continue BET Rant – Iggy Azalea
Nicki Minaj continued to talk about female writers and their impact on Hip-Hop after her statements during the BET awards were considered a slight against Iggy Azalea.

On Sunday night while accepting the award for Best Female Hip-Hop Artist, Minaj went on a tear and talked about everything from a near-death experience to other musicians in her field. She said in part, “What I want the world to know about Nicki Minaj is when you hear Nicki Minaj spit, Nicki Minaj wrote it... No, no, no shade.” It was assumed Minaj was referring to rumors Iggy doesn't write many of her songs and instead uses...

Robin Thicke
Robin Thicke and VH1 had the brilliant idea of holding an interview with all of the users on Twitter. What could possibly go wrong?

One of the first responses was "Why are you a f--king creeper? Why are you stalking your ex through media? Why do you promote rape culture?"

It just got worse from there.

On a scale of R. Kelly to Phil Spector, how do you intend to "Get Her Back?" #AskThicke

FOX Cancels Ambitious Series Before Its First Episode

FOX Cancels Ambitious Series Before Its First Episode
It's became a running joke that FOX doesn't give TV shows a chance to prove their worth (Tru Calling, Family Guy, The Tick, Futurama, Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles, Arrested Development, Firefly), but the network may have topped itself when it canceled an expensive series before airing even one episode.
