*Good Lord! Did Steve Harvey and the Miss Universe Pageant experience deja vu all over again, as Yogi Berra once put it?

Remember the 2015 Miss Universe gaffe that Harvey made? Well, some believe the 62-year-old host made another huge pageant boo boo.

If you missed, Sunday night, during the 2019 Miss Universe contest (on Fox), Harvey seemingly misspoke while highlighting the National Costume contest portion of the competition.

“Earlier this week, all the contestants competed in a National Costume contest. Here’s the look at the winner, Miss Philippines,” he said.

As he continued to talk about the contest, Miss Malaysia Shweta Sekhon, who was standing beside him on stage, interrupted him.

“It’s not Philippines. It’s Malaysia,” Shweta informed the host, who immediately got flustered and began to blame the teleprompter.

“Let me explain something to you. I just read that in the teleprompter. Ya’ll got to quit doing this to me. I can read … Now, they are trying to fix it now. See? This is what they did to me back in 2015 — played me short like that.”

No need to worry Mr. Harvey ’cause the  Miss Universe reps confirm that you didn’t do anything wrong and yes, the teleprompter was correct, as well.

“Miss Universe Philippines Gazini Ganados is the winner of the Miss Universe 2019 National Costume competition,” a rep told Fox News. “As part of the broadcast, we also featured Miss Universe Malaysia Shweta Sekhon’s national costume. Miss Sekhon wasn’t aware we’d be announcing Philippines first, so she jumped the gun when Mr. Harvey started with that news. Mr. Harvey made a joke of it so as not to embarrass her, but no mistakes regarding the national costume winner were made by him, the prompter or production.”

Additionally, the Miss Universe organization reiterated a portion of its statement when it announced on Twitter, tagging Steve, that he had the facts right all along.

Even though Steve Harvey was cleared by Miss Universe, some on  Twitter weren’t having it. It’s like they just wanted to hate on Harvey. Some even suggested that the show meant to commit an error.

“Did they do this ‘mistake’ on purpose? This isn’t funny anymore,” one viewer tweeted. “Change the host! This is repeatable mistake!” another demanded.

With comments like that floating around, it’s no surprise that Harvey has seemingly addressed the issue. On Monday, according to Good Housekeeping, he cryptically tweeted out a message about how to deal with the haters while promoting a clip of Family Feud. He then pinned the tweet to the top of his feed.

“Hate is louder than love, but love is stronger than hate. If you focus on those who love you, you can blow over the haters. Most people hate you only because of the way other people love you,” he wrote.

Garcelle Beauvais: The last time we saw the entire group together was in 2017 when New Edition received a star on The Walk of Fame. Wil there be another reunion soon? We need you guys back! Will there be a reunion? Let us know!

Ralph Tresvant: We’re in talks. Everyone is talkin’.

Johnny Gill: Well, you know, it’s not even gonna be a reunion. It’s– it’s just– we’re happy to say that, uh, we’ve done 37 years and we’ve always had our issues and battles. Everyone knows. If you’re siblings and have friends, and we go through ups and downs. But, God has kept us here for over 30-something plus years, and that’s how we’ve been able to get through the process of doing what we do. Yes, there will absolutely be a New Edition– it won’t be a reunion because it’s all six of us coming back strong. But, it’s gonna be as it has always been, it’s gonna be New Edition. And, um, we’re ready to rock. Just lookin’ at some things and we might– you’re probably gonna hear from us sooner than later. Very soon. Hopefully.

Garcelle: Oh! That’s some good news! We’ll take you however we can get you.

(Everyone chuckles)

Garcelle: Johnny, you say that one day we might even see New Edition on tour with another group of guys from Boston. I know who I’m thinking of.  Do tell.

Johnny: New Kids on the Block. Let me tell you, we love those guys and Cheese, his name is Donnie Wahlberg, but that’s my twin. We call each other “twins”. We’ve all been talkin’ for years about trying to get together to do something and maybe tour together. And I think that’s gonna happen at some point, so…

Adrienne Houghton: So dope.

Johnny: We’ve been really pushing that and hopin’ at some point we’re gonna pull it together for a New Edition and New Kids… I think people would love that.

Drake Says 2021 Grammys Nominations Shows ‘Disconnect Between Impactful Music’

 *Drake has chimed in on the outcry over the 2021 Grammy nominations after The Weeknd called out the Recording Academy for being “corrupt.”

The lineup of 2021 Grammy nominees was revealed last week, and The Weeknd received zero nominations, even though, as TMZ points out, his single, “Blinding Lights,” topped the charts and his album, “After Hours,” hit to #1.

The Weeknd responded to the diss in a tweet hours after the nominees for the 63rd Grammy Awards were announced on Tuesday.

“The Grammys remain corrupt,” he wrote. “You owe me, my fans and the industry transparency…”

Drake also made time to speak out about how the annual music awarda show is having a “disconnect” from recognizing “impactful music.” 

“I think we should stop allowing ourselves to be shocked every year by the disconnect between impactful music and these awards and just accept that what once was the highest form of recognition may no longer matter to the artists that exist now and the ones that come after,” Drake wrote on his Instagram story. 

Drake has won four Grammys, but even he dissed the ceremoney onstage at the 2019 show.

“It’s like a relative you keep expecting to fix up but they just can’t change their ways,” continued Drake. “The other day I said @theweeknd was a lock for either album or song of the year along with countless other reasonable assumptions and it just never goes that way.”

Drake added that now is “a great time” for someone to “start something new that we can build up over time and pass on to the generations to come.”

Drake on the Grammys

Meanwhile, TMZ reports that The Weeknd’s Grammy snub may have to due with him headlining next year’s Super Bowl, but Harvey Mason Jr., Recording Academy Chair and Interim President/CEO, tells PEOPLE that’s not the case.

In a statement to the publication, he said “We understand that The Weeknd is disappointed at not being nominated,” Mason Jr. says. “I was surprised and can empathize with what he’s feeling. His music this year was excellent, and his contributions to the music community and broader world are worthy of everyone’s admiration.”

According to TMZ’s report, Grammy officials gave The Weeknd an ultimatum between the two events, and after heated negotiations, they came to an agreement. 

“We were thrilled when we found out he would be performing at the upcoming Super Bowl and we would have loved to have him also perform on the GRAMMY stage the weekend before,” Mason Jr. adds in his statement. “Unfortunately, every year, there are fewer nominations than the number of deserving artists. But as the only peer-voted music award, we will continue to recognize and celebrate excellence in music while shining a light on the many amazing artists that make up our global community.”

“To be clear, voting in all categories ended well before The Weeknd’s performance at the Super Bowl was announced, so in no way could it have affected the nomination process. All GRAMMY nominees are recognized by the voting body for their excellence, and we congratulate them all,” the statement continues.

Cox said they were “aggressively” approached by a man who asked them for the time. 

“The friend that I’m with looks at his watch and tells him the time, and then the guy who asked for the time says to my friend, ‘Guy or girl?,'” she said. “My friend says, ‘F*ck off.'” The tense exchange quickly escalated with the man attacking her friend. When Cox pulled out her phone to call 911, the guy fled,” Cox explained.

“This dude was looking for trouble … because I happened to be a trans person in public,” she said. “That’s all it felt like. This isn’t shocking to me – obviously, this is my life. I’ve dealt with this a lot, but it never fails to be shocking, I guess… I’ve been trans my whole life, I’ve been harassed and bullied my whole life. None of this is new, but it’s still just kind of like … why do you need to be aggressive?” 

“If doesn’t matter who you are. You can be, like, Laverne Cox, whatever that means,” she continued. “If you’re trans, you’re going to experience stuff like this.” 

Hear/watch Cox tell it via the Instagram video above.
