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?
As we have seen throughout the past couple of months, just about every celebrity has accepted the ALS ice bucket challenge and then continued to challenge their celebrity friends and family. 50 Cent on the other hand, decided to change the challenge.
The rapper challenged his not-so friend, Floyd Mayweather to read one page from a Harry Potter book without stopping, starting over or messing up. If Floyd accepts the challenge, Fifty said he would donate $750K to a charity of his choice.
As you’re probably imagining that this could be just for laughs, The Breakfast Club took this challenge to another level by airing an unreleased audio of Mayweather struggling to read some drops for the radio station.
Although, DJ Envy says this would take someone about 10 seconds to read, Floyd is heard repeatedly stopping and starting over as well as fumbling some of his words.
Watch the video of Fifty challenging Floyd, then listen to the audio released by The Breakfast Club.
Do you think that Floyd will accept the challenge or will he ignore it as if it never happened? What is your opinion?
For the last 11 months, Gucci Mane has remained behind bars awaiting the verdict of a firearms charge that came from an incident last September. On August 20th, the judge made the final ruling.
As Gucci pleaded guilty to possession of a Glock 40-caliber handgun and 11 rounds of ammunition, he was sentenced to 39 months in jail, and another three years of probation. The judge also recommended that “the rapper serve his sentence in a west coast prison with a drug rehab program to allow him to get away from local influences in Atlanta.”
Although Gucci has served 11 months already, he has 28 more to go. It’s predicted that he will get out in December 2016. In spite of his sentence, the U.S. District Court Judge Steve Jones told GuWop that, even though he is unfamiliar with the ATL rapper’s music, “young people- my nieces and nephews- tell me you are quite cool.”
What is your opinion about this? Is it fair that Gucci serves another 28 months on top of his already served 11? Or nah?
