Strippers Get Their Revenge On in “Hustlers”   JLo, Cardi B and Keke Palmer join an ensemble cast in a provocative new movie that shows strippers know how to work a pole and how to work over a group of Wall Street clients who thought they had all the power.   The film is based on the true story as told in a New York Magazine article four years ago titled “The Hustlers Score” about a group of local club strippers who plan a heist to rip off some Wall Street types.  Lopez stars in the film and pulls double duty as one of the executive producers.  Cardi B lends not only her Grammy-winning raps to the film but a little personal experience from her days as a stripper before she became a rapping sensation.   “Hustlers” won’t hit theaters until September 13th, but until then here’s your first reel look at the official trailer.

And Emmy Goes To…   It’s that time of the year when TV shows get to bask in the glow of their achievements and dream of bringing home a little golden statue to show the world they’ve got skills.  Tuesday’s announcement of nominees brought a few surprises and some history-making nominations.  Ava DuVernay’s earthshaking docuseries “When They See Us” garnered a total of 16 noms. DuVernay’s story about 5 Black and Latino men wrongly convicted of a brutal rape helped pushed Netflix to the head of the list for streaming services nominated this year.  DuVernay thanked Netflix for “believing in this story and letting me tell it the exact way I wanted…” as she shared the news with fans on social media.

HBO’s “Game of Thrones” netted an astounding 32 nominations for the top spot in nominations.  That’s a new record for the most nominations in one year to any show ever!

RuPaul’s “Drag Race” continues to break all the social norms and records as well.  The drag queen reality competition leads in nominations this year for VH1 garnering a total of 14 Emmy nominations.  That’s a new record for the number of nominations ever earned by any VH1 show.

Also making the cut this year, “black-ish’s” Anthony Anderson and Don Cheadle for “Black Monday” in the Best Actor, Comedy category. In the Best Actress/Actor, Drama category Viola Davis of  “How To Get Away With Murder” and Sterling K. Brown for “This Is Us”.  Mahershala Ali (“True Detective”) and Jharrel Jerome (“When They See Us”) are both up for Best Actor in a limited series or TV Movie and Asante Blackk earned a Supporting Actor, Limited Series or Movie nomination for “When They See Us”.

The 71st Primetime Emmy Awards 2019 will air September 22 on Fox.

    Listen to the song “If I gave love” by Chante Moore. Then go listen to the song “If I had your love” by Jennifer Lopez. Both songs are exactly the same. Jennifer Lopez, with the help of Puff Daddy and Rodney Jerkins stole Chante Moore’s song. Two black men helped a racist Puerto Rican chick who can’t sing by stealing a song from a black woman. That really sad.

    Cardi B admitted to drugging and robbing black men. No criminal charges were filed against her. Boule Bill (Bill Cosby) was convicted of drugging and raping white women, he is serving time in prison. America hates black people, especially black men!

    The 21st century version of Milli Vanilli is Jennifer Lopez and Cardi B. JLo stole a song that was originally sang by Chante Moore. Cardi B steals rap songs written by other people. Did you know that Christina Milian and Ashanti actually sang some of the songs that were on JLo’s albums. JLo got the credit and the money. Ms. Milian and Ashanti got nothing. This is proof that if you market garbage and self hatred to black people, most of us will consume it and ask for seconds.

    Both Jennifer Lopez and Cardi B have called black people the N word. For some strange reason, we did not get angry and we didn’t protest. What did most of us do? We said the N word along with these two racist Spanish chicks. Let a black person say cholo or wetback in front of Mexicans and see how the latinos react.
