Wiz Khalifa: Rihanna Inspired '28 Grams' Mixtape

Rihanna is a walking muse. Whether it's posting scantily clad selfies on her (now banned) Instagram or snatching Balmain ads, the fashion world is hers, we're just living in it. Now, the Bajan bad gal has served as a source of inspiration for one of her music peers: Wiz Khalifa. After releasing his 28 Grams mixtape, this week, he tweeted, "Rihanna inspired this mixtape." Rihrih didn't hesitate to return the love. "HE GETS IT!!! Too real, 1 love broski!!" Wiz also shouted her out in part 3 of his DayToday series, "...Everybody from like my n*ggas to fuckin Rihanna, like 'This is the type of shit we wanna hear.'"

This past Memorial Day weekend, the "We Dem Boyz" rapper experienced a minor delay in the release of his 28 Grams mixtape thanks to a super brief jail stint. Hey, at least he got a unique selfie out of it.

Lizzo continues to make waves as a musician, instrumentalist, body-positivity icon and booty-shaker extraordinaire. The artist– whose major-label debut Cuz I Love You is receiving praise from listeners and critics alike– will have a chance to put her twerking skills to the test.

13-Year-Old Texas Girl On Life Support After Middle School Fit

A 13-year-old Texas girl is on life support after being attacked by a group of girls after school last week.  According to Houston's ABC 13, the middle schooler has been at the Texas Children's Hospital for the past two days.

Kashala Francis reportedly was attacked Thursday (April 18) by two girls when another jumped in and kicked her in the head. When she went home, Kashala had a bruise on her face and told her mother, Mamie Jackson, what happened, but said she was okay.

On Saturday, the teen was visiting a family member's house when she began to act delusional but then gathered her bearings. The next day, Kashala complained to her mother over the phone of a headache.

"I drove over and I told her get up. I said 'Get up, Kashala.' She kept saying, 'Mama, my head hurt,' so she laid down," Jackson said.

Jackson told reporters by the time she called paramedics, her daughter was unconscious. While at the hospital it was discovered Kashala had a tumor in the back of her head. Doctor's aren't sure if the fight contributed to it, or did she have it prior.

Trump Reportedly Complained To Twitter CEO About Having Less Followers Than Obama

Per The Daily Beast, Donald Trump had a meeting with Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey, where he reportedly complained about having less followers than the 44th President, Barack Obama. The report reads that 45 spent “an inordinate amount of time” complaining about how he’s lost a sizable amount of Twitter followers, among other things.

Trump’s social media director Dan Scavino reportedly spent a large portion of the meeting, which took place in the Oval Office, discussing the likely reasons why Trump’s follower count has decreased. A source familiar with the meeting that took place says he believes that “anti-Trump, anti-conservative Twitter purges” are likely to blame.

“Two people close to Trump previously told The Daily Beast that Trump has repeatedly griped to associates about how his predecessor, President Obama, has had more Twitter followers than he has, even though—by Trump’s own assessment—he is so much better at Twitter than Obama is,” the report continues.

Meanwhile, Obama recently had a street named after him in Los Angeles on Tuesday, April 23.

“Our history is important and this is one way that we will ensure that America’s 44th President’s legacy is shared for generations to come for Angelenos and visitors alike,” said Los Angeles City Council President Herb Wesson of  Obama Boulevard.
