Instagram, Life, and Memes: Seal Says His Instagram Post Was Not An Attack On Oprah; Tells Stacey Dash To Keep His Name Out Of Her Mouth @balleralert Read More: www.balleralert.com Seal Says His Instagram Post Was Not An Attack On Oprah, Tells Stacey Dash To Keep His Name Out Of Her Mouth – blogged by @MsJennyb (Swipe) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Earlier this week, after Oprah Winfrey’s powerful Golden Globe speech that launched the unofficial “Oprah2020” campaign, Seal took to Instagram to call out the legendary host. At least that’s how it initially seemed. But, according to the singer-songwriter, we’ve got it all wrong. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “Let me start by saying that I have an enormous amount of respect for everything that Oprah has achieved and contributed in her life,” Seal said in a video, just before clarifying his Instagram post which accused Winfrey of being apart of the sexual misconduct problem in Hollywood. “What I reposted was not an attack on Oprah at all, she just happened to be the person photographed with the pig in the picture.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Seal’s photo included two photos of Winfrey with Harvey Weinstein, whose sexual assault allegations propelled the MeToo movement, where people share their stories of sexual misconduct, assault, and harassment. The picture was overlayed by text that read, “When you have been part of the problem for decades. But suddenly they all think you are the solution.” The singer posted the photo amid the massive wave of support for a potential presidential campaign for the host. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “No. What I reposted was a commentary on the hypocritical and double standard nature and behavior of Hollywood. So Fox News, back off! But, I’ll get to you later,” he said. “Next, to those of us who support the MeToo Movement, just know this. Not one of the women who have been sexually abused, not one of the women who has come forward has received any real justice, whatsoever.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “Losing your job because you either, A. raped, B. sexually abused or even sexually harassed a woman is not real punishment......to read the rest log on to BallerAlert.com (clickable link on profile)

In the suit obtained by the publication, Metro Gem said Swizz and his wife had been avoiding repossession after defaulting on the leases of the cars. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Metro Gem also claimed the two had about five leases in default, including a $155,000 Range Rover and a $600,000 Ferrari F12. However, Alicia says none of this is her problem. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ According to The Blast, the singer says her name was not on the lease agreement or any of the paperwork for the cars. But, she says from what she understands, all of Metro’s cars have been returned to the leasing company. In fact, she fires back and accuses the company of trying to rope her into the drama for more money, but she wants out. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ She has since filed a motion to be dismissed from the case. On the other hand, according to the publication, Swizz is asking for the entire case to be dismissed. The producer filed a separate motion, accusing the company of trying to stick him for his paper because he’s a celebrity.

Billboard, Christmas, and Definitely: Jhene Aiko Opens the WAYS Foundation In Remembrance of Her Late Brother @balleralert ousu Jhene Aiko Opens the WAYS Foundation In Remembrance of Her Late Brother - blogged by: @ashleytearra ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ There are plenty of things to smile about, and singer-songwriter Jhene Aiko is definitely sure to spark a few smiles with her latest endeavor, the 'WAYS Foundation'. The 29-year-old launched the charity over Christmas weekend, in honor of her late brother, Miyagi, who passed away, after battling cancer, back in 2012. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Through the newly-established organization, Aiko has set out to assist cancer patients and the families of those in need, providing not only financial but emotional comfort and support, as well. She made her first generous donation to Lily Olive Cosby, a five-year-old girl from Eagle Rock, California, who was recently diagnosed with leukemia. Aiko visited Cosby's home with a $15,000 check in hand to cover the little one's medical bills. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ When speaking with Billboard, Aiko says, "This Christmas, I decided to gift my family with the 'WAYS Foundation,' something my family and I have had in the works since the passing of my brother," She expresses. "I decided to make a donation on my family's behalf, in which we plan to continue to help people and families affected by cancer." ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ According to Billboard, the name of the foundation gains its significance from the phrase "Why aren't you smiling?"-which is something that her brother once tweeted during his battle with the disease.

After multiple social media meltdowns and an attack on his mental stability, the actor-singer has been granted 50-50 custody of his daughter, Shayla. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Gibson had been seeking a permanent restraining order against the actor after accusing him of spanking his daughter. The order prompted a child abuse investigation, but that too was recently dropped. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ However, as it loomed, Tyrese expressed his frustration with Gibson and not being able to see his daughter via social media. The actor had multiple meltdowns, pleading his case with the world and his ex-wife. In a few of the posts, Tyrese accused Gibson of being vengeful, claimed he was going broke and called out his famous friends for their lack of assistance. He also claimed Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith offered $5 million to get himself back on track, but a rep for the actors said that was false. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Since then though, Tyrese has scored big in his fight with Gibson. From the dropped investigation to the now denied restraining order, Tyrese will be given joint custody starting in January, TMZ reports.

Capitol records. I was quiet for a few days… I go into the studio and literally poured out my heart and soul and the label decides to walk away from me?” she said. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ She also mentioned how the backlash for performing at Trump’s Inaugural Ball, caused a drastic shift in her image. "I went from someone being revered and loved to facing putting out an album in the worst climate of my musical career.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ “I know God. He was kind enough to soften the blow. I promise you, I felt Him cover me like a blanket,” she said. “I told Him I was out of control. I told Him I was having thoughts about leaving and not finishing all He’s called me to. He listened.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ She also revealed that she had had a miscarriage. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ “Something came out of me. It was my child. The one my love and I worked so hard on,” she said. “I never knew I could allow myself to be so broken that my physical body would break down. “Just because I had a negative experience didn’t mean I had to become negative and broken. When I lost my child I knew that it was time for me to become a StrongBlackWoman.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ Through learning to love herself and practicing yoga, the songstress was able to find her center again. “With every asana and meditation I found my new focus. It was love,” she said. “It was understanding. It was Peace. I could be the catalyst for peace because I now have a deep understanding for what the exact opposite of peace looks like.”
