BET apologizes to Nicki Minaj after snarky tweet leads to rapper pulling out of BET concert

BET issued a public apology Monday after its Twitter account sent out a snarky tweet about Nicki Minaj, which likely led to the rapper canceling her upcoming BET Experience performance.

Monday’s tweet, which has since been deleted, celebrated Cardi B’s historic Grammy best rap album win while seemingly mocking Minaj for not achieving that feat. On Sunday, Cardi B became the first solo female artist to win in the Grammys’ best rap album category.

“Meanwhile, Nicki Minaj is being dragged by her lacefont,” the tweet read.

Shortly after the tweet, the “Chun-Li” rapper announced she would no longer participate in the BET Experience, BET’s weekend of concerts and events in June.

“Young Money will no longer be apart of the BET Experience or award show,” she tweeted.

Lil’ Wayne was also slated to perform, and he likely will no longer appear, as Young Money is the rapper’s record label.

The network issued an apology on its site, which also noted that executives had privately apologized to Minaj for the offending tweet.

“The post does not reflect how we feel about Nicki. And further does not reflect our company values,” the statement said. “We deeply apologize for the hurt, disappointment and confusion that this post has caused. We are committed to doing everything we can to address the situation.”

According to the statement, the network plans an internal audit to alleviate the rogue tweet issue.

Cardi B reportedly responded to the controversy around her Grammy win and the Nicki Minaj issue in a now-deleted Instagram video.

“I work hard for my (expletive) album,” she said, adding. “I remember last year when I didn’t win for ‘Bodak Yellow’ and everybody was like, ‘Cardi got snubbed.’ ... Now this year's a (expletive) problem?”

The 26-year-old rapper went on saying, “It’s not my style for people to put other people down to uplift somebody else. ... I don't support that.”

Cardi B has since deactivated her Instagram account.

There has been no public response from Minaj since BET issued the apology, but the 36-year-old did thank fans on Twitter for supporting her.

The two rappers had been embroiled in literal and online battles in 2018. At a September Harper’s Bazaar party, Minaj and Cardi were involved in a physical altercation. The rappers have also gone back and forth on social media about their respective reigns as the premier female hip-hop artist.

The rapper received support from many of his peers and colleagues in rap. Jay-Z said his arrest was “an absolute travesty.” Meek Mill, Cardi B, Offset and Killer Mike also spoken out about his detainment.

'Marriage is very hard': Newlyweds Justin Bieber, Hailey Baldwin get candid in Vogue magazine 

Four months after Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin married in September, the newlyweds are opening up about their struggles in the March issue of Vogue.

The lengthy interview, which includes photos taken by Annie Leibovitz, the couple talk about reconnecting in June after briefly dating and breaking up in 2016.

>> Read more trending news 

If there’s one thing the couple want people to know, it’s that marriage isn’t a fairy tale and takes work.

“We’re two young people who are learning as we go. I’m not going to sit here and lie and say it’s all a magical fantasy. It’s always going to be hard,” Baldwin, who has taken her husband’s name and now goes by Hailey Bieber. “It’s a choice. You don’t feel it every single day. You don’t wake up every day saying, ‘I’m absolutely so in love and you are perfect.’ That’s not what being married is.”

The couple have their differences -- Justin Bieber,  24, whose had massive success as a musician since he was 13, is the more emotional one of the two. He’s struggled with drugs, alcohol and sex.

“I found myself doing things that I was so ashamed of, being super-promiscuous and stuff, and I think I used Xanax because I was so ashamed,” he told Vogue. “My mom always said to treat women with respect. For me that was always in my head while I was doing it, so I could never enjoy it. Drugs put a screen between me and what I was doing. It got pretty dark. I think there were times when my security was coming in late at night to check my pulse and see if I was still breathing.”

Justin Bieber was able to end his dependency on drugs and alcohol in 2014, when Hillsong pastor Carl Lentz moved him into his New Jersey home for an informal detox.

“I just wanted him to be happy and be good and be safe and feel joy, but I’m really proud of him,” Hailey Bieber said. “To do it without a program, and to stick with it without a sober coach or AA or classes -- I think it’s extraordinary. He is, in ways, a walking miracle.”

The singer also rededicated himself to his Christian faith. He was celibate for more than a year before reconnecting with Hailey Bieber and they remained celibate until they were married. 

“I wanted to rededicate myself to God in that way because I really felt it was better for the condition of my soul,” he said. “And I believe that God blessed me with Hailey as a result. There are perks.”

According to Vogue, Hailey Bieber, 22, has never indulged in drugs, as her father, Stephen Baldwin, had a severe cocaine addiction before she was born. She is described by friends and herself as being rational to a fault.

Although they’re opposites in many ways, they say they are committed to making their marriage and relationship work.

“Hailey’s very logical and structured, which I need,” Justin Bieber said. “I’ve always wanted security -- with my dad being gone sometimes when I was a kid, with being on the road. With the lifestyle I live, everything is so uncertain. I need one thing that’s certain. And that is my baby boo.”

“There’s something beautiful about it anyway -- about wanting to fight for something, commit to building with someone,” Hailey Bieber said. “We’re really young, and that’s a scary aspect. We’re going to change a lot. But we’re committed to growing together and supporting each other in those changes. That’s how I look at it. At the end of the day, too, he’s my best friend. I never get sick of him.”

Michael B. Jordan says therapy helped him after playing Killmonger in ‘Black Panther’ 

Michael B. Jordan said playing Killmonger in last year’s “Black Panther” led him to seek therapy.

>> Read more trending news 

The actor, 31, was interviewed for Oprah’s “SuperSoul Conversations” podcast, which will be released in full March 24. According to him, the process of getting into the villain’s character took a toll on him.

“I spent a lot of time alone,” Jordan said. “I figured Erik [Killmonger], his childhood growing up was pretty lonely. He didn’t have a lot of people he could talk to about this place called Wakanda that didn’t exist.”

However, once filming finished, he had trouble readjusting to his normal life.

“I shut out love. I didn’t want love,” Jordan said according to a USA Today transcription. “I wanted to be in this lonely place as long as I could.”

Jordan chose to see a therapist, despite the social stigma, and said it helped him.

“Honestly, therapy, just talking to somebody just helped me out a lot,” he said. “As a man you get a lot of slack for it… I don’t really subscribe to that. Everyone needs to unpack and talk.”

The actor said he sent himself into such a dark place in order to do his character justice.

“It’s an extreme, exaggerated version of the African diaspora from the African-American perspective, so to be able to take that kind of pain and rage and all those emotions that Erik kind of represents from being black and brown here in America… that was something I didn’t take lightly,” Jordan said.

B. Smith’s husband Dan Gasby says he can care for wife and have a girlfriend too

B. Smith’s husband, Dan Gasby, made an appearance on “Third Hour of Today” to respond to the backlash he’s received about having a girlfriend while caring for his wife as she battles Alzheimer’s disease.

>> Read more trending news 

In a Washington Post interview published last week, Gasby, 64, explained his romance with Alex Lerner, 53, who he began dating about two years ago while still married to his wife of 26 years. The article garnered much attention as many of Smith’s fans criticized Gasby, calling him “disrespectful” and questioning his faithfulness to his ailing wife.

But during his appearance on “Third Hour of Today,” Gasby said he and Smith discussed the future of their marriage before her illness worsened. He also wrote about it in a complimentary piece for Today.com.

“She and I talked about what she wanted. She said if she were incapacitated, she wanted me to care for her but also have my own life,” he said. “I am doing what my wife asked me to do: Living my life. I can still care for B. and also have happiness thanks to Alex.”

>> Related: Fans call out B. Smith’s husband for candid interview about girlfriend, wife’s Alzheimer’s battle

He also discussed race and marriage, addressing those who said he and Lerner, a white woman, were taking advantage of Smith and her money. 

“The 800-pound gorilla in this situation is she's white,” Gasby said of Lerner during the interview. “I’m not supposed to be conscripted to somebody because of their race.”

Dana Gasby, Gasby’s daughter from a previous relationship, also weighed in on the criticism. 

“I mean, why shouldn't my dad have companionship? Why shouldn't he have someone to talk to? For the first few years, it was just me and him. And it's hard. I'm not his wife, I'm his daughter. I can't give him the support that a girlfriend, a friend, you know, a companion can give,” she said. “I am beyond happy for them [her dad and Lerner]. I'm more pissed at the people complaining about them.”

Lerner said she wants people know she, Gasby and Smith are in a very caring and loving relationship. She said their situation sparks a much larger conversation, though uncomfortable, about marriage and caregiving. 

Jay-Z says 21 Savage arrest is 'absolute travesty'

Jay-Z is helping out 21 Savage as he remains detained by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement for overstaying his visa. According to ICE, the rapper is a convinced felon and illegally stayed when his visa expired in 2006.

In a statement to Billboard through his representative, Jay-Z voiced support for the 26-year-old.

>> Read more trending news 

“The arrest and detention of 21 Savage is an absolute travesty, his U-visa petition has been pending for 4 years,” the statement said. “In addition to being a successful recording artist, 21 deserves to be reunited with his children immediately, #Free21Savage.”

Savage, whose birth name is Shayaa Bin Abraham-Joseph, was arrested Feb. 3 in a “targeted operation” meant to arrest another rapper, Young Nudy, who faces aggravated assault and gang charges.

Charles Kuck, an attorney for Abraham-Joseph, said his client does not have a conviction, despite ICE’s claim that he is a convicted felon.

“There is no conviction on his record,” Kuck told Billboard. “Period.”

A statement from ICE released the day of Abraham-Joseph’s arrest said he was convicted on felony drug charges in 2014 in Georgia. But that’s been disputed by Jacoby Hudson, the lawyer who worked with Abraham-Joseph to get his record expunged.

“He’s not a convicted felon, so they reported that wrong from their 2014 arrest,” Hudson told Complex. “That arrest should be expunged. He has no felony convictions.”

Related: Rapper 21 Savage, high-profile ICE detainee, expected to miss Grammys

Attorneys for the rapper released another statement Tuesday that said in part:

“Mr. Abraham-Joseph was born in the United Kingdom. Mr. Abraham-Joseph arrived legally in the United States at the age of 7. He remained in the United States until 2005, when he departed for approximately one month to visit the United Kingdom. He returned to the United States under a valid H-4 visa on July 22, 2005. Mr. Abraham-Joseph has been continuously physically present in the United States for almost 20 years, except for a brief visit abroad. Unfortunately, in 2006 Mr. Abraham-Joseph's legal status expired through no fault of his own. ...

“Mr. Abraham-Joseph was placed into deportation proceedings AFTER his arrest, he was not in deportation proceedings prior to this detention by ICE. DHS has known his address since the filing of a U visa application in 2017. He has never hidden from DHS or any of its agencies.”

Jay-Z isn’t the only person to voice public support for Abraham-Joseph. Meek Mill, Cardi B, Offset, Killer Mike and others have spoken out.

Will Smith and Martin Lawrence began shooting the action-comedy sequel “Bad Boys for Life” recently in the Buckhead neighborhood of Atlanta masquerading as Miami.

It was cold, gray and miserable as they started shooting, but through the magic of film, it will probably look warm and sunny on camera.

Smith announced the start of production on Instagram.

Chris Brown released from custody following rape allegation in Paris

Singer Chris Brown was released from custody Tuesday after a woman accused him and two other people of rape, officials with the Paris prosecutor’s office said. 

>> Read more trending news 

The singer-songwriter was taken into custody Monday on suspicion of aggravated rape and drug infractions after a 24-year-old woman claimed she was assaulted by Brown in a hotel room last week, according to BBC News and The Associated Press.

Brown strongly denied the allegation in an Instagram post Tuesday.“I WANNA MAKE IT PERFECTLY CLEAR...... THIS IS FALSE,” the post said. “FOR MY DAUGHTER AND MY FAMILY THIS IS SO DISPRESPECTFUL AND IS AGAINST MY CHARACTER AND MORALS!!!!!”Brown has been in repeated legal trouble since pleading guilty to the felony assault in 2009 of his then-girlfriend, Rihanna. He completed his probation in that case in 2015, but has continued to have run-ins with police.

An unidentified official told the AP that the woman who filed a rape complaint against Brown in Paris said she met the singer and his friends at a nightclub overnight on Jan. 15-16 and that they all went to a hotel in central Paris afterward. According to BBC News, two other men, including Brown’s bodyguard, were also detained after the alleged incident.

In France, aggravated rape is a crime that carries a punishment of 20 years imprisonment upon conviction, according to French newspaper Le Figaro.

The Associated Press contributed to this report.

'Fox & Friends' apologizes for mistakenly airing Ruth Bader Ginsburg obituary graphic

"Fox & Friends" has apologized for mistakenly airing an apparent obituary graphic for Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

According to USA Today, the image of Ginsburg, overlaid with her name and the dates 1933-2019, aired Monday morning before co-host Ainsley Earhardt introduced an unrelated report featuring a college professor.

"We need to apologize," said co-host Steve Doocy. "At the beginning of Ainsley's interview with the professor, a technical error in the control room triggered a graphic of Ruth Bader Ginsburg with a date on it. We don't want to make it seem anything other than that was a mistake. That was an accident. We believe she is still at home recovering from surgery."

Earhardt echoed the sentiment, saying, “We apologize. Big mistake.”

In a statement, Fox News told USA Today that the incident was "a technical error that emanated from the graphics team."

The film, which was shot in Atlanta, directed by Tina Gordon and produced by Will Packer, also stars Justin Hartley, of “This Is Us,” and stand-up comedian Tone Bell. 

Martin, the star and executive producer of the movie, created the plot after firing an agent who suggested she “just chill and take a break,” according to The Hollywood Reporter. In that profile, the 14-year-old was named one of the “Top 30 Stars Under Age 18.”

Instead of chilling, the “Blackish” star conceived the idea for the script and successfully pitched it to Universal. She is reportedly set to become one of the youngest executive producers in history. 

“Little” hits theaters on April 12. Watch the trailer below.

Former 'RHOA' star Kenya Moore shares first photo of daughter Brooklyn Doris

More than a month after welcoming her first child, former “Real Housewives of Atlanta” star Kenya Moore is sharing Brooklyn Doris Daly with the world.

Moore, 47, shared the first photo of her “miracle baby” in the latest issue of People, which she also posted on her Instagram page.

>> Read more trending news 

“I finally have everything I’ve dreamed of,” Moore told the magazine. “She’s so perfect in so many ways. This little angel … so beautiful. I feel so blessed. It’s all been so worth it.”

The journey to get pregnant was not an easy one for the former Miss USA, who married New York restaurateur Marc Daly, 48, in St. Lucia in June 2017.

“There were so many scares along the way,” Moore said. “We held our breath every time we went to the doctor.”

With Moore being over the age of 40, her pregnancy was high-risk. People reported that doctors worried she had a false pregnancy when they couldn’t see the baby’s skeleton at the first ultrasound. She had pre-eclampsia in late October, which caused her to have extreme fluid retention and high blood pressure. Her condition worsened, and she was induced for labor.

“They told me, ‘Your condition is worsening so get your bags and go straight to the hospital, you’re delivering today,’” Moore said.

Daly flew in from New York and was by his wife’s side. Twelve hours after being hospitalized, Brooklyn was delivered via cesarean section, but the process took three hours.

“They couldn’t get the baby out,” she said. “There were all these complications and they knew if they cut into a fibroid, I could potentially bleed out and die. So they ended up cutting me vertically, too, to just get the baby out and make sure I survived the surgery. They were so scared they were going to lose me.”

Though her daughter was born six weeks premature, Moore says it was all worth it.

“Everything that could have gone wrong did go wrong, but she’s such a tough baby; so determined,” Moore said. “And every step of the way, she kept surviving and getting stronger. She’s my miracle baby. There’s no other way to describe it. She’s my miracle baby.”

Brooklyn is the couple’s first child together.

‘Sesame Street’ Muppet becomes homeless in new story line

A Muppet character that was introduced in 2011 has a new story line shining a light on a tragedy that affects many children in our country -- homelessness.

Lily was introduced to the PBS neighborhood seven years ago. She had food insecurity, meaning her family didn’t have enough to eat. 

At the time, Lily had the same story that nearly 17 million households experienced, The New York Times reported.

Now, her story has evolved. 

Lily, who is said to be 7 years old, has been reintroduced and is living with friends, telling the Elmo character, “Now we don’t have our own place to live, and sometimes I wonder if we’ll ever have our own home,” USA Today reported

Elmo reassures Lily, telling her, “We got this,” adding her friends will be there for her.

Lily and her family are also staying in shelters, or staying with a person named Sofia, who works at a community center, the Times reported.

Sesame Workshop gave Lily the new story line to give hope to children who watch the show and also don’t have a home of their own,  USA Today reported.

It’s part of the group’s initiative called Sesame Street in Communities.

Homelessness impacts every state, according to the Department of Health and Human Services. 

A recent report by the HHS division Administration for Children and Families found that in 2015, a third of all people in shelters were families with children and half of the children who were helped by emergency or transitional housing were 5 or younger.

From 2014 to 2015, 1,211,348 children-- or 1-in-20 -- in the U.S. under the age of 6 were homeless, according to government researchers.
