EUR Exclusive | Amber Ruffin: Whose Looking Out For Amy Coney Barrett & How’s Kanye Surviving? (Watch)




*Fridays are for Ruffin!

Every week, Emmy nominee Amber Ruffin, will respond to the week’s news with sketches and monologues doused in charm, seriousness and nonsense on Peacock‘s late-night series “The Amber Ruffin Show.”

EUR correspondent Fahnia Thomas talked to the writer about Kanye’s survival, Amy Coney Barrett hostile environment and Afros.

FT: What news event are you completely tired of talking about or really excited to talk about?

AR: My sister just texted me and said, ‘I must work with Amy Coney Barrett because she testified when people use the N-word it doesn’t create a hostile environment!’ I was like, ‘OH MY GOD! I hate it, I hate it!’ Those are her true feelings. I was worried about you Amy Coney Barrett – who is looking out for you and your feelings, bud?!

My sister and I wrote a book called, “You’ll Never Believe What Happened to Lacey” … it comes out January 12 … you know when you’re a Black lady and you’re at work and you write down all the racist things people say…She’s been working for so many years, she has many of those books. We just took the funny ones and put them in a book and it’s hilarious!

FT: If Kanye West asked you to be his VP pick, what would you have said?

AR: I would have said, ‘ABSOLUTELY!’ Then I would have destroyed everything from the inside! No, freaking way! There’s too much on the line to be like, ‘I also want to play.’ Then to later come out and be like, ‘I just wanted to siphon votes off of Biden for Trump.’ Buddy how you are surviving?!

FT: Do you have a name for your Afro?

AR: I don’t but I do think my hair is a boy! He gives me so many problems. He’s always fighting me and he won’t do what I say! If that’s not a boy – a little bad boy!

FT: What did you do when you learned you got your own show?

AR: I kept going, ‘I got my own show but there’s going to be all these restrictions right?’ No! There are no rules we can do whatever we want. “Freedom” like Beyoncé sang about!

Aaliyah Book Titled ‘Baby Girl: Better Known As Aaliyah’ Dropping in 2021

*Christmas has come early for Aaliyah fans, as an upcoming book has been announced that will chronicle her life and career. 

According to Billboard, “Baby Girl: Better Known As Aaliyah” will drop Aug. 17, 2021, under Simon & Schuster/Atria Books. 

Written by journalist and author Kathy Iandoli, the title “will focus on the span of Aaliyah’s life and career — from her earliest beginnings singing in Detroit all the way through to her game-changing musical era with Timbaland, Missy Elliott, and the late Static Major,” revealed in a press release. “The book also includes a deep dive into her tumultuously abusive entanglement with R. Kelly and an intense investigation on the crash that ended her life.” 

Says Iandoli: “I wrote this book as an Aaliyah fan. This is for all of us who for the last twenty years can spot her influence everywhere, while wishing she was still here. I left no stone unturned, and I hope I’ve added to her legacy properly.”

News of the book follows confirmation from Aaliyah’s estate that they are bringing her music to streaming services.

“To our loyal fans: We are excited to announce that communication has commenced between the estate and various record labels about the status of Aaliyah’s music catalogue, as well as its availability on streaming platforms in the near future,” read the announcement from Aaliyah’s Twitter account. “Thank you for your continued love and support. More updates to come!”

Check out the official announcement via the Twitter embed above.

In a 2016 story from Complex on the singer’s uncle, Barry Hankerson, who owns her catalog under his Blackground Records label, writer Stephen Witt said of the absence of Aaliyah’s music on the internet,  “Aaliyah’s internet absence is different—there’s no logic to it. It’s not an artistic statement or a play for more money, and there’s no dedicated Aaliyah-only streaming service in the works.”

Witt continued, “Instead, there’s a single, stubborn man, sitting on a catalog that includes almost all of her most famous work. … The situation puts her entire musical legacy at risk of fading from memory. Year by year, streaming accounts for a greater portion of an artist’s visibility and reverence among the next generation of listeners. And he refuses to budge.”

Aubrey O’Day Takes Aims at Trump Family, Claims Ivanka is a Lesbian



Donald Trump Jr. and Aubrey O'Day


*Singer Aubrey O’Day previously claimed she had an affair with Donald Trump Jr., and she even wrote a song about him. Now she’s back with more bombshell allegations about the Trump family. 

O’Day took to Twitter during Thursday night’s Presidential Debate with some not so shocking claims against the president’s kids.

Last year, O’Day said her affair with Don Jr. ended when his then-wife discovered text messages between them.

She said, “We both thought we were each other’s soulmates. It’s something we spoke about often. A soulmate is someone you spend a period of time, moment, of life with that you’re connected as one. I had that with Don.”

Last night, she took aim at Trump for attacking Joe Biden’s deceased son Beau Biden.

“since trump has now lowered this debate to trashing family.. -don jr HATES his father. -ivanka is a lesbian on the low. -eric fucked miss universe on the apprentice board room table while with his now wife. #Debates2020,” she tweeted. 

O’Day also included a GIF that said, “I have the receipts.”

“and while we are at it.. I have texts of don jr telling me what a little shit asshole barron is. That they were on the private jet and barron didn’t like his food so he threw the plate across the plane at the attendant. NONE of these people are INNOCENT of being assholes & liars!,” she continued. 

“We need to stop discussing kids.. because Ivanka is a lesbian, yet doesn’t support women’s rights in this administration that she RUNS on the low. #Debates2020,” O’Day wrote. Check out her tweets above.

Black Twitter is now demanding that she drop those receipts.
