XXL Hip-Hop Magazine Prints Its Final Issue

A week after VIBE magazine shut down officially, XXL magazine is set to follow.

The hip-hop magazine has been around for 17 years. It made sure that fans received all the news on rap music the old fashioned way, before the internet/blogosphere took over. With technology taking over this generation’s attention, young readers find online publications more attractive than the print ones. Therefore, XXL was bought out by Townsquare Media.

The October/November edition of XXL, currently at the printers, will be the final edition of the magazine. Ben Harris, the president of Harris Publications, which began publishing XXL in 1997, said, “We incubated something digitally, but the Townsquare people can take it to the next level with their digital expertise.”

Although most buy-outs lead to layoffs, Bill Wilson, the chief content officer of Townsquare says that “11 XXL editorial and digital ad sales team employees will be offered jobs.”

Wilson also added that it is possible that the publication will return to print for rare, special issues. “We think XXL has strong potential in both the digital and live events market,” he added.

Is there a possibility that all media will eventually discontinue printed publications? With XXL being around for so many years, is it fair to the audience to just discontinue the magazine? What’s your opinion?

As the “Django Unchained” actress, Daniele Watts; left the CBS studios in San Fernando Valley, California, Thursday afternoon, witnesses called the police saying that she was having sex with her boyfriend. When the police showed up she tried to pull the race card on him.

Daniele claims that she was harassed and hurt by cops after she had made out with her boyfriend in her car, after that she complained that the cop was being racist against her for being African-American.

It’s the witness’s word against hers, from a nearby Art Directors Guild office, witnesses told the cops that they had watched Daniele and her boyfriend have full-on sex in the passenger’s seat with the door wide open.

According to the eyewitnesses, Daniele’s boyfriend was sitting in the seat with her straddling him and that the scene was for everyone to see. Another eyewitness told the cops that they had cleaned themselves up with a tissue afterwards.

In the police audio of the incident, Watts pulls the race card instantly, then once that doesn’t work she pulls the fame card and says that she is going to call her publicist. After that she continues to storm off and refuses to show the police officer, Sgt. Jim Parker her I.D.

What do you think about this one? Should Daniele be charged with any sort of offense for PDA?

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?
