Alexa.um, Cardi B, How Long Would it Take to Walk to the Moon? Amazon’s Alexa better stay on her game or she could find she’ll be replaced by a hip hop rapper. “Bodak Yellow” rapper Cardi B is featured in a Super Bowl ad in a hilarious look at what happens if the AI Alexa doesn’t bring her A-game. Cardi joins some A-listers like “The Silence of the Lambs” & “Thor Ragnarok” actor Anthony Hopkins, celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay and Aussie actress Rebel Wilson. Superbowl ads are some times the most entertaining part of the big game(no worries for this year’s match up which is certain to be a hot contest. Go Eagles!!! Boo Patriots), but the powers that be gifted us with this sneak peek.
Cardi B won’t be the only rapper showcased in an ad on Superbowl Sunday. Missy Elliott and Busta Rhymes have spots for Mountain Dew and Doritos.

Oprah Closes the Book on Russell Simmons Oprah Winfrey’s spiritual advice book “The Wisdom of Sundays” has been on the best-seller list since last fall. But if you buy the next printings of the book, no need checking the table of contents for Russell Simmons contribution. Simmons was one of several motivational and religious speakers to have passages. Winfrey’s publisher announced the pages of Simmons will be excluded from future editions starting this month of February. Simmons has been dealing with the fallout of sexual assault allegations including a $5 million lawsuit by one accuser who says the business mogul raped her. Simmons has denied all the allegations against him, but still stepped down from businesses after pressure from accusers began to mount . Simmons is one of approximately 100 Hollywood and entertainment power players who have been taken down by sex scandals in the #MeToo and #Time’s Up movement. Winfrey has been one of the most vocal advocates in the campaigns to stop Hollywood’s sexual harassment.
