Fergie Responds to National Anthem Backlash: ‘I Tried My Best’

After getting lambasted for her rendition of “The Star-Spangled Banner,” Fergie addressed her less-than-stellar performance at Sunday’s NBA All-Star Game.

“I’ve always been honored and proud to perform the national anthem and last night I wanted to try something special for the NBA,” said the former Black Eyed Peas frontwoman. “I’m a risk taker artistically, but clearly this rendition didn’t strike the intended tone. I love this country and honestly tried my best.”

Fergie was ridiculed for her take on the national anthem. Some even called it the worst performance of “The Star-Spangled Banner” by a celebrity. Comedian Roseanne Barr quipped: “Who saw Fergie’s national anthem performance at the NBA All Star Game? I think mine was better lowkey.”

Several NBA players and celebrity fans in attendance were seen chuckling or holding back laughter during the botched performance. The criticism got so bad that Fergie disabled comments on her most recent Instagram posts, including a series of images from the game.

N.E.R.D also performed during the NBA All-Star Game. The trio of Pharrell Williams, Chad Hugo, and Shay Haley put on a career-spanning medley with a special appearance from Migos during the halftime show.

Blac Chyna Sex Tape Leaks

A Blac Chyna sex tape has hit the net.

An 83-second clip of the model performing oral sex on an unnamed man was published on Twitter by an anonymous account on Monday (Feb. 19), according to TMZ.

Chyna’s lawyer Walter Mosley called this a “criminal matter” and has asked law enforcement to track down whoever posted the video. Meanwhile, her attorney Lisa Bloom tweeted about revenge porn.

“Revenge porn — posting explicit images without the consent of everyone in those images — is a crime, a civil wrong, and a form of domestic abuse,” she wrote. “It’s also a way to try to slut shame women for being sexual. Girls have killed themselves over revenge porn. It’s not a joke.”

Last year, Chyna threatened legal action after Rob Kardashian, the father of her daughter Dream, posted naked pictures of her online. Kardashian is not the man in the new video, according to the report.

Watch Tinashe’s Vertical Video for Future-Assisted ‘Faded Love’

Hot off the release of “Faded Love” with Future, Tinashe unleashes a provocative vertical video for her Joyride single.

The clip begins with the R&B siren writhing around on the floor in a white bra and matching underwear over fishnet stockings. She then walks around a grimy warehouse, showcasing her impressive and seductive dance moves in front of industrial gates and shattered mirrors.

Released last week, Tinashe confirmed that it was a great reunion with Hndrxx. “Future’s on my first album,” she said. “But I felt like it was pretty underrated. So I was like, ‘It would be perfect to have him back again.’ I thought this song was really an interesting song to put him on because it was a little more unexpected, a little bit more muted, and not necessarily like a trap music, or something that would be obvious. It’s a kind of new flavor.”

“Faded Love” is the latest single off Tinashe’s Joyride. The oft-delayed album is also set to feature the recently-released “No Drama” featuring Offset.

Up next, Tinashe may release a proper visual for “Faded Love.” Plus, another single called “Me So Bad” is set to follow.

Cardi B Gives Offset Bando Chain

Offset gave Cardi B some new ice for Valentine’s Day, and now the “Bodak Yellow” rapper is returning the favor with a brand new bando chain.

Jeweler Elliot Avianne showcased the elaborate diamond-encrusted piece, designed to look like an abandoned house emoji, complete with a crack on the front, a door that opens, and shooters on the inside.

This was a response to a diamond necklace and bracelet set that Offset gifted Bardi for Valentine’s Day. Cardi originally planned to buy her man a less expensive gift, but had to up the ante. “I was gonna give you something that costs way less than this but now I gotta up it up,” she said.

Offset showed off his flashy new chain at the NBA All-Star Game on Sunday (Feb. 18), where he also performed with Migos as part of N.E.R.D’s halftime show. Although she didn’t perform, Bardi was spotted on the sidelines, eating popcorn while dancing to “Bartier Cardi” in the arena.
