5 Vixens We'd Like to See Give a Kanye West-Like Rant

As glamorous as it may seem to be famous, it is definitely hard work. The lack of privacy, hectic schedules and pressure to be perfect can be overwhelming and downright scary to have on your plate all at once. The following ladies on our list have all been subject to the pressures of fame but have (for the most part) held their composure and developed a tough skin--almost too tough. In the wake of Kanye's recent rants in Europe (and in general), Vixen has complied a list of composed ladies that we wish would put their image aside for a second and tell us the real deal. -- Christopher Lowery

Ciara rant

Ciara

If you have seen or heard an interview with Ciara, you know how eloquent she is. She has always managed to maintain a clean image and generally saved any racy material for her art. But what if CiCi were to give us a little bit of that on-stage fire and tell us what's really going on in her mind? I mean, we'd have a lot to vent about if our music career was waning.

RIhanna rant

 

Rihanna

As bold as her antics are these days, Rihanna still finds a way to keep her ice princess demeanor. If her Twitter spats are any indication, the girl indeed has a mouth on her. A rant from Rihanna would not only be edifying, it would be entertaining with quotables for days. #Phuckyorant.

Keri Hilson rant

 

Keri Hilson

Not the biggest fan-favorite at the moment, Keri Hilson never quite addressed the public's obvious displeasure with her about, well, everything. She threw shots at Beyoncé and Ciara indirectly on the remix to "Turning Me On" then avoided the topic whenever it was brought up, blaming it on a producer who wasn't supposed to leak that version. All this makes one wonder why is Keri really mad? We know there is something bothering you, girl. Let it out.

Keyshia Cole rant

 

Keyshia Cole

There is no mistaking Keyshia for some soft-spoken, timid girl. So instead of taking cheap shots at Michelle Williams after her performance at this year's Super Bowl, maybe she can be the woman she claims to be in her music and sound off about everything. Heck, make another reality show about it...or let us know the real reason you and Jeezy broke up?

Nicki Minaj rant

Nicki Minaj

Nicki Minaj is the reigning empress of female rappers at the moment. She went from rapping on steps to judging American Idol in less than three years. A transition that fast has got to take its toll on you,  and we know things aren't all happy and colorful as her persona makes it seem (see: Mariah Carey beef). Could you imagine a rant from Nicki featuring all of her many personalities? That's popcorn-worthy.

CupcakKe Reveals Abusive Boyfriend Led Her To Contemplate Suicide

Months of abuse led to the suicidal tweet posted by Chicago native CupcakKe, earlier this month. In a lengthy message posted to her Twitter account over the weekend, the 21-year-old rapper admitted that she’s been battling depression, brought on by an abusive ex-boyfriend.

In the post titled “my disturbing read,” CupcakKe accuses a man named, Christopher Terrell, of stealing her credit cards and terrorizing her throughout their relationship.

“This is someone I’ve been dating for the past [five] months,” she wrote in the now deleted post. “Out of the kindness of my heart I gave this man over [$30,000] during this period [of] time because I understand how it feels to be without (especially after me being homeless). He also has threatened to shoot my mom in the face [and] has threatened me on multiple occasions [and] said he can do it because he will get away with it!!!! I have screenshots, recorded calls, bank statements and all types of proof.

“Me being stupid in love I have [taken] this man back multiple times but every time I take him back the abuse gets [worse],” she added.

Further in the post, CupcakKe explains that her depression from feeling trapped in the relationship resulted in her contemplating suicide. “He [has] snatched off my wig in public, broke phones [and] continues to traumatize me every step of the way! This is what [led] to my ‘I’m committing suicide’ tweet…I have called the cops multiple times and they have yet to do anything about it,” she wrote, adding that Terrell is threatening her with revenge porn. She also admitted to posting his number on social media, and the numbers of women that he “plotted” with  to steal her money.

“Yes I am wrong for that,” she said. “But by me sending this message out it is not for harm to be sent his way, it’s for the police to make things way more serious!!!! Also this message is for every young girl or anyone in general that is struggling with abuse right now. I get u (once you see the first sign) leave!!!”

Kelly Rowland Says Her Highly-Anticipated Project Is "Definitely Coming"

Six years ago, Kelly Rowland released her fourth studio album titled Talk a Good Game. The project boasted hit singles like "Kisses Down Low" and the transparent "Dirty Laundry." Now, the Houston native is preparing to release a project that'll surely satisfy fans' patient earbuds.

In an interview with Billboard, Rowland shared her hopes for putting out a new body of work and the pressure that she's encountered since she's been in the studio. "This is by far the longest, most pressure-filled process ever, only because I know what it's supposed to be and I have been so hard on myself. I know it," she said. "And it's the first time I've said it out loud. I've been extremely hard on myself. But it's definitely coming, and I'm more so excited about this project than anything else."

The news follows the recent release of Rowland's "Kelly" track, which was met with critical acclaim in November 2018. In addition to preparing the release of new music, the "Motivation" singer discussed fans' wish for a Destiny's Child reunion. The rumors have been fueled by social media photographs of Rowland with either Beyonce or Michelle or all three, especially during Beyonce's past Coachella performance. But Rowland assures readers that it's not what they think.

"It's so funny. I guess every time people see us together, they just see music but I see sisterhood, and that's what we are and that's what me, her, Michelle [Williams] and Solange and I are. People see us all together, they immediately think music. I'm like, no. Just family." As Rowland previously mentioned Solange, she hopes to one day work with her again.

"I'm a huge fan," she said. "I love her writing and how detailed and particular she is. I always wanted to figure out how the heck she has so many different layers of harmonies when she is constructing these vocals, and it's so complex but simple. It's genius. It's the genius in her genius mind that she has in there." One of the last times the pair collaborated was on Rowland's "Simply Deep" track off her debut solo album of the same name. Solange also penned a few songs off the same project. Fast forward to 2016, and Rowland's vocals were featured on Solange's iconic A Seat at the Table.

Teyana Taylor To Pay Homage To Ballroom Culture In "WTP" Video

Teyana Taylor aims to keep her hot streak of innovative videos coming thanks to this recent announcement. Taking to Instagram on Wednesday (Jan. 9), the "Gonna Love Me" singer will show adoration to ballroom culture in the visual for "WTP."

Directed by Gregory "Beef" Jones, The Aunties Inc., and Taylor herself, the Harlemite takes viewers on her journey to the expression-filled space where she hopes to rack up 10s across the board from a group of judges. The premise of the video also seems to follow a mockumentary format airing on a fictional network named FEMTV. Alongside Taylor, other men and women get ready to display their talents and confidence on the ballroom floor.

"WTP" is featured on the mother-of-one's sophomore album, K.T.S.E., which was released in June 2018. While the rollout's controversy didn't entirely muddle the excitement behind the project's debut, Taylor said she was sold on the idea that her album would be treated as the biggest out of G.O.O.D. Music's string of releases last year.

"I didn't know ahead of time that there wouldn't be any singles or visuals. But I knew that it was going to be the five-album thing," she said during a HOT 97 interview. "[Kanye] wanted [my album] to be last, he wanted mine to be the biggest. That's the way they sauced it up. I was sold."

The video will debut on Jan. 19. Check out the teaser below.
