The “Bawn” of A New Era! Meet Anthony Bawn (@AnthonyBawn), Director of “About Him: Freshman Year!”

It is no secret that we love ourselves some About Him: Freshman Year.

The series has been rolling strong for almost two months now and we love, love, LOVE it! Again, it only proves Tyson Anthony is a genius. However, he is not the only creative genius aboard this groundbreaking web series, meet the man behind the camera, the CEO of Bawn TV, director extraordinaire, Anthony Bawn!

Anthony is easily one of the best directors we have ever met. His style, admittedly, is very clear and cut–get it right or watch it end up on the floor. Some may find that as brutal, but we see it as efficient, especially when the public is craving your product. Indeed, Mr. Bawn has undertaken quite a project adapting this hit web series from its parent network, Signal 23 TV, to Bawn TV and Amazon Prime. Many, including us, were skeptical of his skill, but after seeing his work and actually having a meeting of the minds, we can tell you this guy is the real deal! Check out our exclusive interview with him below:

As you can see Anthony does not mince words and really tells you like it is. There has been a great deal of controversy surrounding who does and owns what with About Him, and we are impressed with how nobly he is handling it all. As aforementioned he is the CEO of Bawn TV, an online network with some amazing content. Most of the series on it are independent, a few are other series from Tyson Anthony. Personally, we have been binge watching Cheetah In August and the movies, Four,  and Chasing Pavement which stars former porn star, Remy Mars. You can subscribe to the network by clicking here.

We are here for Anthony Bawn, Bawn TV, and About Him: Freshman Year and you should be too! Happy viewing!

[VIDEO] Chris Brown (@chrisbrown) Documentary set for June Release!

chris brown

“Welcome To My Life…” That is the name of Chris Brown’s documentary set for release this June. As you recall the singer/rapper/dancer teased news of a documentary about a year ago (you can see it by clicking here) and now a trailer has been released. Check it out below:

The trailer looks amazing and truly nostalgic. We get to stroll down to seemingly simpler times when Chris was the artist we all knew and loved. He had the potential to be the greatest entertainer on the planet and somehow, somewhere he lost his way. Eerily his shortfall sounds like Michael Jackson’s in the “not getting to have a childhood” arena. However, and unsurprisingly, we had no idea he was ever suicidal. Even more riveting are the labels attributed to him like “misogynist” and “violent.” This documentary goes there and we aren’t talking about Degrassi!

chris brown

We definitely think a documentary on Breezy is definitely overdue. Over the last few years his life, career, and talent have been marred and overshadowed by controversy. Whether it is the lingering domestic violence, a restraining order from Karrueche Tran, or some mishap with a random woman or camera man as of earlier this week.

What do you guys think of Chris Brown’s documentary? Will you be tuning in? Sound off in the comments’ section below.

#Declassified! Search Warrant Reveals Prince (@prince) Had Pills Throughout Paisley Park!

There is not a day that goes by that we do not miss Prince.

It is hard to believe it has almost been a year since his untimely demise and he is still grieved by the entire world. Naturally, his cause of death was controversial; and rumors of his health and chemical dependency have been running rampant, but now thanks to a newly revealed search warrant, the rock star may have had a real “pill popping problem.”

According to new docs, law enforcement found Ziploc bags with pills as well as envelopes containing pills.

The docs bear out what TMZ has reported … Prince’s bodyguard was the person who went to a Walgreens pharmacy the day preceding the singer’s death to fill prescriptions, including Percocet.

And, Prince used an alias — Peter Bravestrong — and cops found a suitcase with that name that contained pill bottles along with the lyrics for the song, “U Got the Look.”

The main doctor who was treating Prince — Dr. Michael Schulenberg — admitted to a detective he had prescribed Prince Oxycodone the same day Prince OD’d on a jet — 6 days before he died. The doctor put the Rx in Prince’s bodyguard’s name.

Prince would regularly get B12 injections before his concerts to feel better and they were set up through his managers.

And this is interesting … Prince didn’t use a cellphone … apparently because he was once hacked and didn’t trust it. His communications were through emails and landlines.

This all looks bad, but it is honestly not surprising. Prince is not the first, and he certainly will not be the last, star we learn uses opiates. He also most likely will not be the last to succumb to them as well. Substance abuse and chemical dependency are very real problems that even being a megastar cannot cure.

In #CelebrityEggplant News 🍆🍆🍆: Alleged Nude Pix of Apollo Nida Hit The Net!

Is it me or was #EggplantFriday banned from Instagram a couple of years ago? Apparently, someone did not get the memo sent to their jail cell! Yep, the soon-to-be ex-husband of The Real Housewives of Atlanta’s (RHOA) Phaedra Parks, Apollo Nida alleged eggplant has hit the net!

As you recall, for a few years Mr. Nida was the reality series’ heartthrob  (especially when you compare him to Peter Thomas, Todd Tucker, and Greg Leakes; husbands of Cynthia Bailey, Kandi Burruss, and Nene Leakes, respectively). Now Apollo is pretty much persona non grata after he was convicted of identity theft, conspiracy, and fraud. Then the allegations of infidelity flooded in right before we met his current fiancee. It was all messy needless to say.

Nevertheless Apollo is hot not because he is a law abiding cititzen, but because that body of his is everything–and now that dick–we mean eggplant will too! Check it out on the next page. As always, this is GRAPHIC CONTENT, VIEWER DISCRETION IS ADVISED! FOR MATURE AUDIENCES ONLY!

“No Place Safe…” Regina King (@ReginaKing) to Star In Series Based on Atlanta Child Murders!

regina king no place safe atlanta child murders

Regina King is an amazing actress. Which means she can pull of just about any role, and truly we love her for it!

The woman is a star through and through. Which is why when it comes to tackling some pretty heavy subject like the Atlanta Child Murders of the seventies and eighties, and we will definitely be tuning in.

The series is adapted from Kim Reid’s memoir, No Place Safe  and is already generating a lot of buzz.

*** Local Caption ***

The Atlanta child murders occurred in Atlanta, GA from mid-1979 until May 1980. During that period, at least 28 African American children, adolescents and young adults – mainly boys- were killed. Atlanta native Wayne Williams was arrested and convicted of two of the adult murders and sentenced to two consecutive life terms. Police since have attributed a number of the child murders to Williams and closed the cases, although he has not been tried or convicted in any of those cases. No Place Safe tells the story of the hunt for the killer through the eyes of then-13-years-old Reid whose mother was an investigator on the case.

This series is definitely going to be groundbreaking. As a native of Atlanta I grew up hearing stories of the child murders, but I do not recall there ever being a series that delved into them. I have also read a little of No Place Safe and if the series is anything like the book then it will undoubtedly be riveting and captivating. Regina is no stranger to tough material though, as you may already know she has received numerous awards for her roles on ABC’s American Crime, which is now in its third season.

What do you all think about the new series? Will you be tuning in? Sound off below in our comments’ section!

[VIDEO] Oh No They Didn’t! Pepsi (@pepsi) Removes Controversial Ad Featuring Kendall Jenner (@kendalljenner)! Bernice King (@BerniceKing) Speaks Out!

Pepsi is a brand that has been around for years! It’s a brand that people have grown to trust and love.

Normally, with age comes wisdom but sometimes you still have moments where you just don’t quite get it. Unfortunately, Pepsi had one of those unfavorable moments recently.

Earlier Pepsi posted their new ad featuring Kendall Jenner. The ad featured Kendall in a blonde wig at a photo shoot. During the photo shoot, Kendall witnesses a multicultural  protest going by and she decides to ditch the shoot and join the protest. Kendall snatches off her blonde wig and makes her way to the front of the protest line.

Once at the front of the crowd, Kendall uses her superhero powers and stops the entire protest by giving a police officer a can of Pepsi. Then everyone claps and cheers because a Kardashian and Pepsi have now rid the world of  its injustices.
