Janay Rice Blames Herself and the Media

On Tuesday Janay Rice, wife of the suspended NFL player Ray Rice, bashed the media about the elevator tape that was recently released by TMZ. In her response, she stood by her husband’s side.

A day after the Baltimore Ravens fired Ray Rice and the league suspended him for knocking his wife out during a fight, Janay responded by saying that the situation was a nightmare.

“To make us relive a moment in our lives that we regret every day is a horrible thing,” Janay wrote on an Instagram post. “To take something away from the man I love that he has worked his ass off for all his life just to gain ratings is a horrific."

Rice was weeks away from returning to the gridiron when the elevator tape was released. The video shows him punching his then-fiancée and dragging her limp body out of an Atlantic City casino elevator.

On Tuesday, his wife said she feels like she is mourning the death of her closest friend.

“No one knows the pain that the media & unwanted options from the public has caused my family,” she said. “If your intentions were to hurt us, embarrass us, make us feel alone, take all happiness away, you’ve succeeded on so many levels. Just know we will continue to grow & show the world what real love is!”

Janay then proceeded to defend her husband on ESPN later that night. 

“I love my husband. I support him. I want people to respect our privacy in this family matter,” Janay said, according to the network.

Ray then proceeded to apologize to his fans, the owner of the Ravens and everyone who was affected by the situation. Yet with this opportunity he did not apologize to his wife. 

Janay also blamed herself along with the media.

What is your opinion on this? Does Ray deserve another opportunity or not?

Rumors Come To An End, There Was Never A Divorce

As the summer has passed, we have heard continuous rumors about Beyoncé and Jay Z getting a divorce. Fans became surprised when they began their On The Run tour, but following the beginning of the tour; happened the famous elevator incident. Making fans believe the rumors even more.

But according to Radar Online, Mathew Knowles (Beyoncé’s father) says that it was all a staged trick. Although he and Beyoncé haven’t had the best relationship for the last few years, he claims that things are fine between them and that he still speaks with his daughter. 

“We still talk every Sunday. She’s still the humble, generous person that she’s always been,” said Knowles. Although they currently have a good relationship, things may begin to get rocky again when she hears what he had to say about their elevator incident. 

Mathew then added that Beyoncé and Jay used that drama to get people engaged in the On The Run tour. “I know because we have done this. From experience, there’s a tour going on. So sometimes you have to ignite that tour. It’s called a Jedi Mind trick. The Jedi mind trick fools you a lot,” he stated.

He also added that the elevator video helped ticket sales go up. Knowles also mentioned that the incident helped Solange’s album sales go up 200%!

So there you have it guys -although it may not be a surprise to many after watching the VMA’s. What do you think about this?

The Game Releases A Track For Mike Brown

If you have been keeping up with the Michael Brown shooting which happened in Ferguson, Missouri, you will find interest in this.

In the wake of the shooting, The Game has recruited a group of 10 rappers and four R&B artists. As they come together they protest on a musical Molotov “Don’t Shoot.” 

The song by The Game features Diddy, Rick Ross, 2 Chainz, Fabolous, Wale, DJ Khaled, Swizz Beatz, Yo Gotti, Curren$y, Problem, King Pharaoh and the R&B super-group TGT (Tyrese, Ginuwine and Tank). 

In an interview with Rolling Stone Magazine, The game says, “The issues in Ferguson really hit home for me, and I feel compelled to use my musical platform to address this.”

“I am a black man with kids of my own that I love more than anything, and I cannot fathom a horrific tragedy like Michael Brown’s happening to them,” he added. “This possibility has shaken me to my core. That is why this song must be made and why it was so easy for so many of my friends to come together and unite against the injustice.”

In a show of solidarity, the rappers on the track are a Pan-American show. 

“I managed to get everyone on board fairly easy, simply because we have the hearts,” stated the game. “We care and are inclined to take a positive approach to resolving an issue that has existed since the beginning of mankind and that is racism and hatred towards one another as human beings.”

Listen to the song and purchase it on iTunes, the money raised from the track will go to the Justice for Mike Brown GoFundMe account. 

Give us your opinion on the track and let us know what you think.

Nicki Twerks Her Way To The Top

Within the first 24 hours, Nicki Minaj’s “Anaconda” video broke the record for the most VEVO views within a day.

Nicki’s artwork for her “Anaconda” single definitely turned some heads, yet when the video was released, it made an even larger impression on her fans. The video accumulated 19.6 million views over the first 24 hours of being released.

The insane amount of views broke VEVO’s record for the most views within a 24 hour stretch. Beating Miley Cyrus’ “We Can’t Stop”, which held the top spot with 12.3 million views.

But it doesn’t stop there, the video continues to climb to the top, currently sitting at about 39 million views. It is possible that the video still has a few more records to break.

Nicki is scheduled to perform her single at this year’s MTV VMA’s, which is predicted to be just as surprising of a show as the video.

What do you think about Nicki’s newest video? Does it deserve all of the attention it’s receiving? Or nah?
