This year’s Golden Globes have come and gone, but they are still the talk of the town. One of the hot topics surrounding the momentous night revolved around Jay-Z and Beyonce! As you may already know, the iconic couple arrived late to the awards ceremony, avoiding the Red Carpet all together, and arriving with Jay-Z’s own brand of champagne in tow!

Ace of Spades champagne

Jay-Z and Beyoncé’s bodyguard was spotted holding bottles of the rapper’s own brand of champagne, Ace of Spades, at the Golden Globes on Sunday.

“.@Beyonce and Jay-Z just walked in,” LA Times reporter Amy Kaufman noted on Twitter alongside a photo of the couple standing by their security. “They’re waiting until Kate McKinnon finishes speaking to take their seats.”

She added, “Is their bodyguard carrying bottles of alc for them?”

In the photo, the guard can be seen holding two bottles behind his back, despite one of the official sponsors of the evening being Moët & Chandon.

The rapper spent $200 million in 2014 to own the high-end bubbly Armand de Brignac, which makes Ace of Spades.

The couple was reportedly an hour late to the show on Sunday night. Beyoncé was nominated for best original song for “The Lion King,” but lost to Elton John and Bernie Taupin.

This is such a power move on Jay-Z’s behalf, and not to mention amazing publicity. We are not sure whether he planned for this to become a story, but it is the talk of the town. Anything Jay-Z and Beyonce do is so widely noticed and gone over with a fine toothed comb that we are not surprised this is newsworthy. It is being reported stars like Reese Witherspoon and Jennifer Lopez asked to try some of it!

We honestly do not blame them for bringing their own champagne either. If we owned a multi-million dollar champagne company we definitely would not be drinking anyone else’s products either. Kudos to The Carters!

Not only is Tarzan racist it has been used as an instrument of White Supremacy to inject the psychological poison of racial hierarchy, genocide, eugenics and anti-black politics for 108 years. Let’s talk about it. Author #EdgarRiceBurroughs was a known to be proud of his views on #eugenics , African #genocide and White skin being the key to absolute dominion over the world. He believed Blacks to be racially impure and should be exterminated and sterilized. #Tarzan is quoted introducing himself as a title“…The House of Tarzan, the killer of beasts and many black men.” The name “Tarzan” literally means “white skin” in the ape language Burroughs envisioned. Tarzan often boasted about #lynching Black Men for sport and honor and saves Jane from the “black ape rapist”. Tarzan was used as #racist propaganda to debase #Africa and Black People when #MarcusGarvey ‘s “Back To Africa” initiative was gaining support. Tarzan has been devastating to Black Culture and has even been linked to a rise in lynchings around the releases of its titles. @wbpictures Holla at me. Let’s get this right this time.

We did our own research and can confirm Mehcad’s allegations wholeheartedly. There are a number of articles posted below you can read for yourself. A New York high school even canceled its Tarzan musical due to the racist epithets and ideology of the character!

Hollywood definitely has some work to do with some of its older franchises. We are glad Mehcad is bringing this to light. Honestly, we would not mind seeing him cast as the new Tarzan. He definitely has the build, skill, and credentials to be the true “King of The Jungle!”

For years Will and Jada have denied any open relationship in their marriage for years however; in the latest August Alsina interview with Angela Yee, August admits that he was in a relationship with Jada Pinkett-Smith & that Will Smith gave him the blessing to do so. August also mentions he fell in love so hard that he had to walk away HURT because he realized they could never be together since Will & Jada are “life partners.” Thoughts? 👇🏿 ———— #CelebrityNews #CelebrityInterviews #AugustAlsina #AngelaYee redtabletalk #willsmith #jadapinkettsmith #openrelationship #openrelationships #talksandthoughts #mp #HeyMikey #HeyMikeyATL #MichaelJFanning #Mikey #atlantablogger #radiopersonality #mediapersonality

A post shared by Michael Fanning (@heymikeyatl) on

August recently sat down with The Breakfast Club’s Angela Yee … claiming he had been in a relationship with Jada after being introduced to her by her son, Jaden, in 2015, and, according to him, it lasted quite some time.

AA was emotional as he explained how Jada is the only person he’s ever loved, and how he devoted himself to her and poured himself into their relationship for many years. However, Jada’s rep was quick to denounce his claim … saying it was “absolutely not true!!!”

August also insists Will gave their relationship his blessing. Will and Jada have been very public over the years about their open relationship, but her team says the whole thing is made up.

The singer claims walking away from his relationship with Jada when she “butchered” him and basically “killed” him … so it sounds for his part like he was pretty deeply in love with her.

August hinted at a sexual relationship with Jada last year, when he made some thinly-veiled references to her in his song, “Nunya.”

Now, August has spoken his piece about his alleged romantic past with Jada … but reps for Jada could not have been more clear about their stance.

Honestly, we do not know what to believe. An affair between Jada and August is totally feasible, and if they are in an open relationship, not wrong. However, August does seem emotional and wounded, which to indicates he was in love with a woman who could not give him everything he wanted. At the end of the day, as he himself stated, Jada and Will are “life partners” and he cannot compare to a commitment like that. How about Jada just have August, herself, and Will at The Red Table Talk to clear the air. It would be a real hoot!

We will keep you posted as more on this story develops.

We are really glad to hear Saweetie’s forthcoming album is nearly here. She has been in the spotlight for a minute now and her fans (we are fans) deserve to hear a full body of work from her.

More importantly, however, we love to hear she is doing her part in the Black Lives Matter movement. Someone with a platform as large as Saweetie’s is definitely needed in this good fight! These recent lynchings of Black men in various parts of the country being labeled as suicides is nothing short of nonsense and murder at the hands of white supremacists. Thanks Saweetie for speaking out!

You can catch Saweetie’s interview with Tim Kash below! Happy viewing!
