They say put your money where your mouth is, but in Draya Michele’s cast her mouth might have just cost her millions in an endorsement with Rihanna’s lingerie line, “Fenty x Savage!” As you recall, Draya recently joked and made light of Megan Thee Stallion’s shooting by Tory Lanez, and this allegedly got her axed from the deal!

Today, the internet speculated that Michele lost her Savage x Fenty endorsement in result of an internet blow up last week when the model made comments about Megan Thee Stallion and Tory Lanez. ” I want you to like me so much you shoot me in the foot,” Michele jokingly said during an interview. This comment did not sit well with the internet as many jumped to Megan’s defense as well as the rapper tweeting her own personal response to Michele. “…Who tf jokes about getting shot…”

After Michele began to catch heat, she quickly apologized through social media, however this week, the consequences aren’t over. Earlier today, rumors began to fly on Twitter that the model has been dropped by Rihanna’s lingerie label Fenty x Savage. The sultry line has a stacked ambassador list including Megan Thee Stallion, which would ultimately serve as a conflict of interest.

Naturally, Black Twitter pointed to her comments’ being the reason she was let go and followed suit via social media with their sleuthing.

Also, and naturally again, the internet has its own comedic responses to these allegations.

We feel Fenty made the right decision to part ways with Draya–if this happened–and her comments on Megan were the reason. Rihanna is the owner of this company and brand, and a domestic violence survivor herself. Nothing Draya Michele said was funny, especially when women are dying every day in domestic violence disputes–three daily on average!

We are sure Draya will get picked up by another brand soon, but this should teach her that some things do not deserve commentary and can be costly to her.

It is being reported that rapper and actor, DMX, is now in “grave condition,” following a drug overdose which triggered a heart attack last night.

The fifty year old rapper was rushed to a White Plains, New York hospital, but the true state of his condition remains unknown as multiple reports are coming in that he is fighting for his life, or in a vegetative state after being declared brain dead. Neither his family or representatives has yet to release an official statement on his condition.

DMX drug overdose

DMX has battled drug addiction and substance abuse most of his life. In 2019, he canceled four tour dates to check into a rehab facility, apologizing to his fans for the disappointment. In multiple interviews, and most notably on OWN’s Iyanla Vanzant: Fix My Life,” the effects of said abuse has been disastrous to his family and marred his career and personal life. Still, the love and support from both celebrities and fans has been overwhelming, with many taking to social media.

Missy Elliot posted, “Prayers for DMX” on her Instagram account; with other rappers like Swizz Beatz and Rick Ross following suit. The former posted a sunset over the ocean, and the latter posting “Prayers up #DMX” with a video to an Instagram Story.

Fans too have posted their well wishes, as well as their disbelief in his relapse: “Prayers to the real rough rider,” @bitchiwas999 posted with a picture of DMX at a concert, meanwhile @RasheedPanda tweeted, “The worst thing is that we all thought he had been sober this whole last year, he did songs and looked healthier and everything. Addiction ain’t no damn joke.”

As aforementioned this story is still unfolding. We will report back with new information as it becomes available and would like to send our own personal prayers up for DMX.

WebLYFE Atlanta, Season 2, To Be Produced By “U Do TV!”

WebLYFE’s creator, casting director, producer, cast member and owner, Michael Jonvier, formerly known as “Hey Mikey,” has opted to switch to a new production company. WebLYFE Season 2 will now be produced and filmed by Atlanta based production company and new Roku Channel, U Do TV.

WebLYFE Atlanta was one of the latest additions to the growing genre of LGBT Web Reality Series.

Like Chasing Atlanta, The Come Up Atlanta, and still others before it; the series attempted to show the lives of seven Atlanta based web series actors, content creators, and media personalities; Larry “Phylle” Carter, Michael “Hey Mikey” Fanning, Carl “K $tarr” Levonzell, Lacie “Lacie Doll” Squire, Nikia “Freshie” Squire, and Brandon Karson Jordan; as they live, laugh, love and clash on the backdrop of Atlanta’s vibrant social scene. 

However, the first season was riddled with production issues, onset and behind the scenes as various cast members and producers clashed with one another and production. Although many viewers enjoyed the series and the cast; even more noted the poor production quality of the episodes (editing, lighting, camera movement, audio, etc.), not seeing the full scope of the cast’s work, and an imbalanced story line primarily centered on two cast members that was pushed throughout the season. This is a far cry from the original balanced vision of an ensemble cast the show’s creator clearly expressed and expected. 

WebLYFE’s creator, casting director, producer, cast member and owner, Michael Jonvier, formerly known as “Hey Mikey,” has opted to switch to a new production company. WebLYFE Season 2 will now be produced and filmed by Atlanta based production company and new Roku Channel, U Do TV.

Together with the CEO of U Do TV, Maurice Ravennah, Michael will co-executive produce the new season, in collaboration with his own new media company Michael Jonvier Media, LLC. Project Management Company, Forever Dope Management, headed by Ebony Shinelle, will assist with show production and operations, while Kontrol Magazine will act as a major sponsor. “We’ve worked with Michael for a decade, and with our two brands merging, this is the perfect marriage. WebLYFE has been a dream of his for years, even when he was intially naming it ‘Web Stars of Atlanta’ and we are happy to help however we are needed. We got his back!” Julian Lark, Editor-in-Chief and Publisher of Kontrol Magazine tells us.

Additionally coming on board are returning cast members Carl Levonzell, Lacie Doll, Freshie, and Larry Carter. “This show is my brainchild and I wanted a reality series that was balanced. Yes, you have the drama, but you need to also see people working through their issues, finding solutions, and for sure showcasing their work. I’m blessed to call some of the most creative minds in the city [Atlanta] my friends and colleagues. Season 2 is going to be my vision–what it should have been all along.” When asked where Michael stands with the former production, OutPour Media Productions LGBTQ, he simply states, “I wish them the best. My interaction with their executive producer, solely, taught me to research people thoroughly before working with them; and that you can never see your vision come to fruition in the hands of someone else. Nevertheless, I wish them the best.”

 In the second season you will also see two new faces soon to be announced! Michael and Maurice both state they want well rounded people who have never been on a reality television with a story and work that will really make people take notice. “Atlanta is full of talented people, but we are looking for individuals who are making moves in their fields as well as have the personality and wherewithal to deal with reality television…We are excited to partner with Michael on this and are more than prepared to deliver an amazing second season.” Maurice adds.
