Last week Nicki Minaj dropped a stream of hits from “Anaconda” to a remix with Beyonce’ for “Flawless” as well as teamed up with Jessie J and Ariana Grande for the “Bang Bang” single. She definitely proved that she’s a force to be reckoned with.
Sometimes it comes as a surprise when the revealing of celebrity siblings are released. There are probably a hundreds of people who resemble celebrities more so than their own relatives that have absolutely no relation. Take actress Scarlett Johansson and her twin brother Hunter Johansson for example.
They look mildly similar yet Charlize Theron would be a more believable twin of the voluptuous star than Hunter.
Here are 5 Celebrities who look a like.
Yesterday Nicki released the highly anticipated single “Anaconda” which was only the icing on the cake. This past weekend Beyonce released her the remix to her song “Flawless” that includes Minaj as well.
One word…BRAVO! The rapper is back. Since the success of “Superbass” the star’s career blasted off into a pop direction and although many appreciate the alternate styles she attempted, she is serious this time around.
Nicki Minaj’s latest single “Anaconda” has already been the most talked about song of the summer, even though the song has yet to be released. The rapper recently revealed the cover to her unreleased song and the reaction must have struck a nerve.
Nicki Minaj is often a figure of controversy and has never defended her artistic statements. At least not until the unveiling of this certain single. The rapper took it upon herself, after the backlash about her photo, to brief the world of the “double standard” of her “assets” versus theirs.
The artist covertly displays the double standard of black bodies vs other raced women on Twitter this past Friday by posting pictures of supermodels and labeling their similar raunchy photos as “acceptable” and self labeling her own photo as “unacceptable”.
Here’s the one that’s most reasonable to compare.
Other “acceptable” pictures posted by the artist can be found here.
The artist poses a great debatable issue. Although African American, Black, Afro anything women have always dealt with the issue of being over sexualized. As her cover displays, you can do and wear the same thing as other raced women but your image will be viewed as negative.
This is not justified to the women who participate in such photos but solely based on cultural history stereotypes. We can get into a whole history lesson and debate on the whole “double standard” on the over sexualization of black women but that’s a whole other article on it’s own.
Nicki makes an excellent point in bringing social inequalities to light. It also makes you question why would a woman of her stature make this risqué photo her cover art? It seems like a cry for attention.
She’s proven herself successful not only as a female rap artist, but as a well accepted pop artist. She’s at a point in her career where this type of attention is not needed. Do we blame twerking for changing the image of female artists and how it has become the norm to “show what you got” in order to remain relevant?
Nicki Minaj is no stranger to creating chaos. Earlier this year she dropped the cover art to her single “Looking A** Ni**a” that included a picture of Malcolm X’s iconic photo seen below.
It appears to be a new trend that she’s setting by generating the most controversial covers to possibly remain relevant. It’s almost an act of desperation at this point. Let’s be honest. She’s not leaking these covers by accident.
Minaj has since pushed the Anaconda single back from July 28, 2014 to August 4, 2014 and released a supposed new cover.
She posted, “My darlingz, I’ve pushed the release of Anaconda to next week, Monday 8/4. I promise you will understand why before the week is out. Loveeeeeeee uuuuuu“, along with the picture seen below.
It’s hard to assume what the controversial artist will do next. Schemes and scandals can only prevail for so long. What’s going to happen when all the controversy no longer satisfies the masses and people will only focus on her music? Does Nicki feel her music isn’t enough to entertain her followers? Maybe she fears her gimmicks will lose peoples interest like Lady Gaga.

Calm down Gladiators. It was only a hoax.
Earlier this week, satire website Cream BMP Daily, posted a faux story about the Golden Globe nominated actress Kerry Washington being replaced by actress Meagan Good, who’s often portrayed as the “hot chick” in most urban films, on Scandal.
Cream BMP Daily posted on its Twitter Monday along with the above picture:
To help legitimize their story, the website even posted supposed quotes from the shows creator Shonda Rhimes, causing fans to believe their prank. They stated that;
It reads, ““Where Meagan lacks in acting she makes up in sex-appeal so we believe she’ll bring a larger male demographic to an already female driven show” Said the director of Scandal about the news that Kerry would be leaving due to her refusing to agree to a decreased salary.”
The website also states that Rhimes said, “Let’s be honest $300,000 per episode is not like we were putting her in the poor house”.
This sounds very personal and unprofessional. It’s hard to believe this news for true. Scandal is one of ABC’s major shows. You can’t even log on to Facebook or Twitter Thursday nights between 9 and 10pm without a stream of #Scandal statuses. Even if you don’t watch the show or are unable to tune in due to work, you will, unwillingly be updated via social media on what’s occurring as the show airs.
As bogus as this news sounds, it still angered fans.
Marie Poindexter posts on her Facebook status:
Others took to Twitter.
Besides the social buzz, Scandal is up for its fourth season premiering in September with its new time 9pm/8c. Since the start of the show Scandal has been nominated for 15 Awards and has won 7 including a Primetime Emmy Award.
As it turns out Cream BMP is just a young comedian trying to put his stamp on the world. Well done. Now we know not to trust anything from your site. Why bother even reading because if he is a so-called comedian, there were absolutely no LOL (laugh out loud) moments in that article.
So Gladiators can exhale now. There will be no Meagan Good on Scandal. Well at least not season 4.

“I was f**king his b***h!”
This past Friday, undefeated world champion boxer Floyd Mayweather felt the need to air out some dirty laundry involving Blurred Lines rapper T.I.’s wife Tameka “Tiny” Cottle.
Earlier this year rumors began circulating about the couple of thirteen years about their intentions to split. Rumor has it that T.I. not only cheated, but impregnated another woman. After the rumors submerged of the possible separation, Tiny disappears and well reappears…on Instagram, with who? Floyd Mayweather, that’s who. Let’s get ready for the rumble of Mayweather VS. T.I.!
As if Kanye West didn’t create enough controversy with his Yeezus album, Cartoon Network’s latest stint titled “Black Jesus” is sure to generate chaos.
From the creator of the hit television series “The Boondocks”, Aaron McGruder teams up again with Cartoon Network’s Adult Swim to release the new half hour series. Black Jesus is a show that places Jesus on Earth, and of all places, Compton, California, the birthplace of the notorious rap group N.W.A.
Although many may not be familiar with his physical appearance, Gerald “Slink” Johnson played the voice of Lamar Davis on the video game Grand Theft Auto V as well as the Grand Theft Auto Online game. Interesting enough Slink’s latest role will be that of Black Jesus.
Whether or not you’re a fan of the Trigga Man, Trey Songz, you cannot escape his music. Trey Songz is known for having catchy choruses that can hook a fan after one listen. From “Say Aah” to “Bottoms Up”, he knows what to do to keep people interested in his music.
This years BET Awards was filled with many surprise performances including Jhene Aiko taking the stage with Grammy Award Winner John Legend to sing her hit “The Worst”, to Trey Songz joining August Alsina to perform their single “I Love This” along with the now husky figured Chris Brown pictured below.
Just when Mimi and Nikko’s sex tape scandal calms down, VH-1 drops another bomb on us.
Last night Vh-1 aired a new episode of their hit TV show “Love and Hip Hop: Atlanta”. The newest member Kelenna Harper Vick of Diddy’s Dirty Money, has made her presence well known.
Although Kelenna’s role on the reality show hasn’t been major thus far, she sure woke up any snoozer’s in last night’s episode.
Keleena revealed to the world that a she’s not only married to male counterpart Tony Vick, she also has a female “bestfriend”, named Ashley whom she…has relations with from time to time.
But there’s more. Her husband Tony, is absolutely okay with it.
He even asks to join in with the ladies as they ‘play’ in the bedroom but thank God someone had morals in this situation. Ashley declines Tony’s request and proceeds with Kalenna to the supposed bedroom.
Clips from Kelenna’s “coming out” episode, can be seen below.
