How Should We Celebrate Thanksgiving During The Pandemic?

Adrienne Houghton: Thanksgiving or die? Like, I don’t understand how that is even a question! Obviously, if there’s a way and there is a precaution we can make to make sure everyone was to be safe, that’s completely different. But the average person can’t uh– a lot of the cities don’t offer testing like that and the average person can’t pay for testing for their entire family. So, that is just a different situation. If that’s your situation, I encourage you, sit this one out! There will be Thanksgivings for years to come! It’s a yearly thing. Missing it once– and you guys know I’m obsessed with Thanksgiving. I host Thanksgiving every year. But this year, it will just be me and the family that I live with and that I’m quarantining with. I can’t do my big elaborate thing in L.A. I won’t be traveling back and forth. There’s a pandemic, people! What are we not understanding?

Garcelle Beauvais: I feel like you’re lucky you have your family. It’s me and my boys, you know what I mean? It’s just the three of us. So, I think I get it if people are bummed. First Halloween, now Thanksgiving. But, I agree with you. It’s a pandemic. Um, we all have to do the right thing so that the quicker we go through this, hopefully, the quicker we’ll be able to get out of it, and next year will be an amazing Thanksgiving. I usually have a “Friendsgiving”. Whoever is not going home is at my house and we have, like, 25 people here. But, you know what, this year, I get it. It’ll be a smaller turkey. Maybe it will be a hen, even though I don’t know how to cook a hen.


Loni Love: I would say, to plan. We can have Zoom Thanksgivings. You can also try to pair with, like, a smaller like Garcelle was saying to do. But, have a plan. Because I know a lot of people don’t have families or are out of state from their families, so, it’s an adjustment. It’s not about, you know– it’s about being safe. But I do understand that people need to check on their single friends at this time. Even if you just call them that day and make sure they’re okay. Maybe you can send them some food. They’ll have, you know, like different kind of meal preps and stuff like that. We have to help each other out at this time, because usually the holiday time is when everybody is happy– they can get together. So, we just have to make adjustments to it.

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.
