Should Trina Really Be Upset About Getting Snubbed A BET Awards Nom?

BET recently stabbed a couple girls' hearts when they dropped the nominees for this year's BET Awards. Keyshia Cole (who was also fronted a seat at the 2010 MTV Video Music Awards) mentioned on Twitter that the news came as an awkward memo that she's no longer hot in the public's eye (yikes!) while Trina ditched the longwinded reply going with a simple "Fuck BET" tweet. But why's the baddest bitch, bitchin?

Perhaps you're like us who first thought Trina's sore retort was a bit ludicrous. Because really to keep it realler than most, nothing popped with the thick one these last 365. But alas let's have a looks at the nominated chicks for Best Female Hip Hop Artist:

Nicki Minaj
Diamond (??)
LoLa Monroe(???)
Cymphonique (????)

Okay so T has a bit of a point. But how much pandering can BET do when everyone, including them, knows who's going snatch the trophy anyway? Might as well swivel in different female MCs so they can upgrade their resumes wirth a nom. 

Si, no, maybe so?

Whitney Houston Hologram In Development Plus New Music

Seven years after Whitney Houston's death, the world-renowned singer's estate plans to keep her voice and legacy thriving. According to The New York Times, the "I Will Always Love You" singer's estate plan to work on a hologram and release new music.

Former manager and sister-in-law Pat Houston shared the details with the news site, stating the hologram sits at the top of the list of a forthcoming rollout of Houston's music. In addition to a touring hologram, talks of a Broadway production remains on the table. The revamping of Houston's business output arrives via Primary Wave Music Publishing, a marketing company that Houston's estate signed a contract with. The organization is entitled to 50 percent of Houston's assets like music and merchandise.

For Pat Houston, she hopes this new venture will remind the public of the highly-decorated artist's significance. "Before she passed, there was so much negativity around the name; it wasn't about the music anymore," Houston said. "People had forgotten how great she was. They let all the personal things about her life outweigh why they fell in love with her in the first place."

To reach this point of producing new avenues for Houston's memory to continue on, Pat Houston said "timing" was key. "It's been quite emotional for the past seven years," Houston said. "But now it's about being strategic." Details are still forthcoming.

Arrest Warrant Issued On Mother Of Nipsey Hussle's Daughter Amid Custody Case

An arrest warrant has reportedly been issued for Tanisha Foster, the mother of Nipsey Hussle's daughter, TMZ reports. The warrant was filed after Foster failed to appear in court for a DUI case.

Tanisha Foster was reportedly busted for DUI in Los Angeles a few years ago. She pled no contest to one of the charges and was sentenced to three years probation. Foster skipped out on her court date on May 15, however, which resulted in her probation being revoked and a bench warrant for her arrest being issued.

The arrest warrant was issued in the middle of Foster's battle for custody of her and Nipsey Hussle's daughter, 10-year-old Emani. Nip's sister, Samantha Smith reportedly filed for guardianship of her niece following the rapper's untimely death. Smith and the rest of Nip's family claim Foster is not a stable parent.

Both parties appeared in court last Tuesday (May 14). Foster reportedly broke down in tears after seeing her daughter for the first time in months. A judge reportedly cleared the courtroom and gave the mom and daughter 20 minutes together. A judge has yet to rule on the custody of Emani.

Report: DaBaby's Crew Allegedly Beat Stoughton Rapper Into Coma

DaBaby was forced to bail on his headlining concert at a nightclub in Lawrence, Massachusetts after his crew and another artist got into a brutal altercation.

The incident reportedly took place last Friday (May 17) at the Centro Nightclub. According to TMZ, it all started when local rapper Don Trag approached DaBaby for a photo and was turned down. Trag was reportedly on the concert bill for the night. Despite the rejection, the Trag persisted. Some witnesses said he put his hands on DaBaby's security first. In response, DaBaby's team swarmed Trag and began beating him up, Derek Lamire, the associate promoting the event for NTS Entertainment told TMZ.

In video obtained by the celebrity site, DaBaby appears to be looking on while Trag gets pummeled by his security. After the beating, the victim was reportedly taken to the hospital on a stretcher. A police spokesperson confirmed that cops responded to the scene early Saturday morning (May 18), but were unable to get witnesses to cooperate.

According to the Trag's mother, the artist returned to the hospital after passing out at her home. She said he is now in a coma fighting for his life. The victim's brother also told TMZ that Trag has significant brain and neck swelling and "is not doing well." Trag's family has reportedly contacted a lawyer about the incident.

It's unclear if DaBaby or his team will be charged in the incident.
