Kanye Has “Clarified” His Slavery Comments in a New York Times Interview.

“I said the idea of sitting in something for 400 years soundssounds — like a choice to me, I never said it’s a choice,” Kanye told Jon Caramanica. “I never said slavery itself — like being shackled in chains — was a choice. That’s why I went from slave to 400 years to mental prison to this and that. If you look at the clip you see the way my mind works.”

Oh. Okay.

Did Drake Really Flake on a Dinner Date with Tiffany Haddish?

Miss Haddish is back with another engrossing tale, this time about how Drizzy allegedly took an opportunity to break bread with her for granted. What were you thinking, Aubrey!?

While on the set of “Nice for What,” work texts turned into being asked on a dinner date by the 6 God, Tiffany told Jada Pinkett Smith on the latest episode of Red Table Talk. But then a “family emergency” came up, so it never ended up happening.

Gambino’s Manager Has Responded After Fans Pointed Out Striking Similarities Between “This Is America” and Another Rap Song.

Fans were up in arms over the weekend after it was pointed out that “This Is America” sounds oddly similar to Jase Harley’s “American Pharaoh.”

“They sound mad similar in structure and certain parts of the flow,” one Twitter user wrote. “This is one of the few times where it doesn’t seem like people are reaching bro. Hmm.”

But according to another, Harley’s cool with it, even if he didn’t get his due. Gambino’s manager, Fam Udeorji says the plagiarism rumors are all a load of sh*t, however.

“The Internet is a place for no consequences,” he reportedly wrote in a now-deleted tweet on Monday. “I hate that Toronto Akademiks/ every white blogger can say something as gospel and y’all take it.”

He added that there’s no way the song was plagiarized since it’s actually been in Gambino’s arsenal for a minute now.

“[‘This Is America’] is 3 yrs old, and we have pro tools files to prove it,” he continued. “But f**k you and your moms, and your future fetuses. stay blessed.”

#PermitPatty Says She Didn’t Actually “Mean” for the Police to Show Up. 🙄🙄🙄

Alison Ettel, the white woman who “pretended” to call the cops on an eight-year-old selling bottled water without a “permit,” claims she didn’t want the police to come to their apartment building. She was just “bluffing.”

“They were screaming about what they were selling,” she told HuffPost of the incident. “It was literally nonstop. It was every two seconds, ‘Come and buy my water…’ I had been putting up with this for hours, and I just snapped.”

She added—after now having received death threats—that she feels “horrible” about her actions and now wants to apologize. But Erin Austin, the mother of the eight-year-old girl, says they won’t be accepting that apology.

Oh, and it looks like Ettel sells weed… for dogs.
