Martina McBride Slammed With Sexist Remarks: Her Response? 'Wow.
Never refer to Martina McBride (or any female country music star, for that matter) as a "tomato." Or assert that "if you want to make ratings in country radio, take females out."

In a rebuttal on Facebook, McBride fought back against Country Aircheck's suggestions. "Wow.....just wow. Just read this from a major country radio publication. How do you feel about this statement?"

And as for the claim that women don't liste...

Bruce Jenner Comes Out... As A Transgender Republican?
Bruce Jenner officially came out as transgender during an interview with Diane Sawyer last Friday. That, you probably knew (and probably saw coming, considering it's all anyone could talk about for weeks).

Blac Chyna, Instagram And A Pair Of Wax Lips Demolish The Kylie

Just afterwards, she posted a photo of just the lips, too.

The #KylieJennerLipChallenge, in case you're blissfully unaware, is a hashtag suggesting people suck on bottles to decrease the blood ...
