Anaconda, Bailey Jay, and Billboard: Remembering Legendary Singer and lcon, Whitney Houston @balleralert Remembering Legendary Singer and Icon, Whitney Houston - blogged by @lanaladonna (swipe) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ It’s been six years since the death of legendary singer, actress, producer, and model, WhitneyHouston. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Houston died at 48 in 2012 after being found unconscious in a bathtub in a Beverly Hills hotel. It was reported that the singer passed due to cocaine use and heart disease. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Houston’s legacy included winning six Grammys and selling 170 million albums, singles, and videos over her career. Whitney, to this day, is the only artist to chart seven consecutive No. 1 Billboard Hot 100 songs and is the only woman to have two number-one Billboard 200 album awards. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Houston made her acting debut in “The Bodyguard” in 1992, where she performed the lead single from the film’s soundtrack, ‘I Will Always Love You.’ The song easily became a highlight of Houston’s career, and one of her signature records. It received the Grammy Award for Album of the Year in 1994. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Houston’s pursuit in acting didn’t stop there. Aside from her appearance in Disney’s ‘Cinderella,’ she landed leading roles in ‘Waiting to Exhale’ and ‘The Preacher’s Wife.’ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Whitney’s career contributed to breaking the color barrier that so many African-American artists faced. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ On this day we remember her legacy, career, angelic voice, and the contributions she made to the entertainment industry as we know it. Houston left behind her mother, two brothers, and her daughter Bobbi Kristina, who died three years later. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ May Whitney Houston continue to Rest In Peace!

College, Destiny, and Drake: Drake Has A Heart of Gold: Donates Thousands Of Dollars to People in Need @balleralert Drake Has A Heart of Gold: Donates Thousands Of Dollars to People in Need- Blogged by @tktrinidad ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The “6 God” Drake has been very busy lately. While filming his latest music video, “God's Plan” in Miami, he went on a good samaritan giveaway spree. First, he gave a check to a women’s homeless shelter for $50,000, according to CapitalXtra. Then the Canadian artist gave $50,000 to 20-year-old Destiny James, a first-generation college student, raised by a single parent in a low-income area. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ James wrote on Instagram, “I was contacted this weekend about doing a video speaking about where I come from, things I’ve been through, and why it is so important for scholarship donors to continue to donate. This was the surprise the whole time. Drake told me that he has read great things about me and appreciates how hard I’ve worked through so many trials and decided to give me $50K for my tuition. @champagnepapi THANK YOU SO MUCH!!. You don’t understand what this means to me! I would’ve never imagined this happening to me. I’m just a girl from Denmark, SC that wants to MAKE IT and be somebody and for you to see my hard work means the world. Thank you so much. God, I thank you. You are so great and amazing! Thank you for blessing me when I thought my hard work was going unnoticed.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The Champagnepapi wasn't done yet though. He also gave $25,000 to the Miami area high school, where he filmed part of his video and a collection of OVO-designed school uniforms to Miami Senior High School. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Later on, he even paid for everyone’s groceries at Sabor Tropical Supermarket, totaling to about $50,000 in food. Customer Guille Deza told E! News, “No one knew he was coming at all, we just came to do groceries. Cameras were being set up so we were all wondering what was to happen.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ According to Deza, the rumor is that the giveaways will be part of the “God’s Plan” video.

Complex, Memes, and Music: Nas Will Be Honored with the NYC Mayor's Office of Media and Entertainment 'Spotlight Award' @balleralert Nas Will Be Honored with the NYC Mayor’s Office of Media and Entertainment ‘Spotlight Award’ - blogged by: @ashleytearra ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ With over twenty-five years in this game of Hip-Hop, no one could ever deny Nas’ legendary contribution to the culture… which is exactly why New York City has always been proud to call him one of their own. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ According to Complex, the Mayor’s Office of Media and Entertainment (MOME) will be honoring the Queens, New York-born lyricist with the ‘Spotlight Award’. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The estimable accolade serves as a way to shed light on heavy-hitters in entertainment, such as film, television, music, publishing, digital content, and advertising. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “His roots run deep in our city. From Brooklyn to Queens, he is a product of New York City public housing and exemplifies what it means to give back,” MOME Commissioner Julie Menin says. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Menin will be presenting Nas with the honor at Sir Lucian Grainge’s 2018 Artist Showcase, which is set to be hosted by the Universal Music Group. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “As a musician, Nas has made his name known worldwide, helping to put New York City on the map,” she adds. “But, beyond that, he’s a role model for the next generation of young artists. He leads by example through [his] philanthropic efforts.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ For Nas, the recognition of his many years of accomplishments is actually quite profound and dear to his heart. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “Anyone who knows me know what New York City means to me, and this is special because of that connection," the rapper said.
