*”Black Lives Matter Plaza was transformed into a church Sunday morning, with thousands of mostly African American worshipers praying, protesting, kneeling, and dancing near the White House after marching from the National Museum of African American History and Culture,” The Washington Post reported.

Sunday’s faith-based events in Washington, D.C., were planned by both black clergy and the NAACP.

Black church leaders had refrained from holding their own event citing safety concerns amid the coronavirus pandemic. Marchers were urged to stay six feet apart and masks were strongly encouraged.

*Teyana Taylor appears to have announced her retirement from the music industry. 

The singer took to Instagram on Friday to share Spotify’s year-round stats of her “2020 Artist Wrapped,” and thanked her fans for their support.  She also called out the music industry for making her feel “super under appreciated as an artist.”

She writes: “I ain’t gone front in times of feeling super under appreciated as a artist, receiving little to no real push from the ‘machine,’ constantly getting the shorter end of the stick, being overlooked … I’m retiring this chapter of my story with the comfort that i can depart with peace of mind seeing that all the hard work & passion put in was indeed loved & supported somewhere in the world!”

Taylor continues, “All hustlers have the understanding that when one door closes another will open.”

Taylor also called out the Grammys for the lack of women nominated for the Best R&B Album category: “Y’all was better off just saying best MALE R&B ALBUM,” she tweeted, “cause all I see is dick in this category.”

Drake has also 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 late last month, 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.

Kerry Washington and Newcomer Ariana DeBose Star in ‘The Prom’ from Netflix WATCH

Kerry Washington and Ariana DeBose

*Kerry Washington and newcomer/rising star, Ariana DeBose star in the new Netflix film “The Prom.”

The film also includes an all-star cast featuring Meryl Streep, Nicole Kidman, James Corden, and Keegan-Michael Key.

“The Prom” is a mix of a teen drama and high school musical, with issues that most can relate to and the topics are discussed with festive song and dance.

The film takes place in a small and conservative town in Indianapolis. Emma Nolan, played by Jo Ellen Pellman, has become pretty infamous in the town due to her sexuality.

As if high school wasn’t hard enough, Emma is also dealing with backlash from the community because she wants to go to prom with her girlfriend. But, parents and school officials are not having it. They plan to cancel the prom just to prevent Emma from being herself.

Kerry Washington’s character, Mrs. Green who is head of the PTA, is determined to make sure Emma doesn’t have a same-sex date to prom. When a few broadway stars, who need a good cause to bring more attention to their production, get wind of Emma’s story they make it their mission to fight for her and bring national attention to the issue.

All of the attention doesn’t sit well with Mrs.Green as she feels actors should not be at the forefront of social issues. Both Washington and DeBose are very vocal about political issues, we asked their opinion of people who things actors should remain silent.

“Activism or just civic engagement, that is the responsibility of all of us. Democracies only work when we all show up,” says Washington.

When you have a large platform it is a great advantage to making sure your voice is heard. The Prom not only tackles dealing with a judgemental community but also having to face the judgment of family members.

This film is sure to be a gateway of communication for teens and young adults who have a hard time talking to their parents about their lifestyle choices.

“I really believe this film is going to inspire a lot of young people to take a stand and to stand in their power,” says DeBose 

 “The Prom” streams on Netflix from December 11.
