1. Nicki Minaj is following in Beyonce's footsteps and paying fans' college expenses.
Okay, I think we all need to stop hating on Nicki Minaj now, because she just earned some serious
karma points. On Twitter a few days ago, she ran a contest where fans could enter to hang out with her at The Billboard Music Awards in Las Vegas, which seemed super cool and boujee up until one fan responded and asked her to pay her intuition instead. Nick Dawg could have passive aggressively ignored that tweet by favoriting it without responding, or she could have just paid the student's intuition and be done with it. But no - it looks like Nicki ate a Snickers Bar before hoppin' on her iPhone
, because she was in a fantastic
She told fans to send over proof of their straight As and she'll cover whatever their expenses were. She slid money into their bank account for all different items - from smaller things like textbooks to bigger things like I don't know, probably full intuitions, given how damn rich "Anaconda" must have made her. We have no idea if these payments actually went through but we haven't heard of any complaints, and apparently, she's going to do it again.
So if you're a student and you need some bills to be paid, you better stop living that bad and boujee lifestyle and start brushing up on your homework game - a well-behaved student makes for a happy Mama Minaj.
2. Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon might get back together!!!
Remember when Mariah and Nick tied the knot in 2008, had two kids (Moroccan and Monroe), and then decided the marriage just wasn't for them and split after 6 years? 6 YEARS OF PURE PASSION, LOVE, AND LOYALTY...
At least that's what I like to think, because personally for me, the moment when Mimi finalized her divorce with her (slightly crazy) hubby was one of the darkest moments in my life.
The one not-so-bad thing about the divorce was that it didn't seem to get in the way of raising their kids. But lately, they're really
raising their kids together, if you're picking up what I'm putting down (*wink*). A source recently told People
that after being separated for nearly two years, "there seems to be hope that they will get back together permanently." And the family was recently seen at Disney World together - YES, DISNEY WORLD. Is that not the
place to take your kids when you have some good news to tell them? *While Belle signs their autograph book*: "By the way kids, your father and I are getting back together! Now who wants to go ride in the teacups like one big happy family?"
All I know is Mon and Mor would be thrilled.
The "exclusive source" continued, "Mariah and Nick are getting along great. Nick spends most of his time with Mariah and the kids. Mariah is great with Nick around." Which sounds great, but then Nick and different
sources argue, "It's so perfect right now honestly, I'm working on being the best me that I can possibly be and from that I'm working on being the best father that I can be and that's a plate full right there. I love her, I adore her, that's always going to be my dream girl but I think as mature adults I think we just operate better with the way things are right now." Nick, be a man and run back to your woman! None of this half ass shit! Do it for the kids! Do it for Disney World!
They've also gone out to a pap-filled dinner:
Nick, I want you to watch this video while Mariah sings "we belong together!"

3. Kanye West deleted all of his social media.
What I immediately felt when I learned that Yeezy stepped off the social media grid was gratefulness. I thought, maybe we should all thank
him for giving the world a break? Because let's be honest, his social media presence was exhausting. With all of the capslock and the "I'm a genius" stuff, I'm pretty sure I heard the entire world let out one gigantic exhale when he decided to take a break.
confirmed that his pages are indeed, dead: "Kanye West appears to have deactivated his Twitter and Instagram accounts. The Twitter page for @kanyewest now brings up the site's 'Sorry, that page doesn't exist!' screen. On Instagram, @kanyewest now yields 'Sorry, this page isn't available.' There is not currently an explanation for either deactivation." Yeezy goes so hard with the publicity ploys, I would not be surprised if suddenly dropped another album or some music video that's somehow even more controversial than "Famous." All I'm saying is that enjoy the silence while it lasts, kiddies.
