Tyrese Is Not Pleased With Chris Rock’s Commentary On Jada Pinkett-Smith's Oscars Boycott

Tyrese slams Chris Rock's Oscars opening monologue.

Add Tyrese Gibson to the list of people who were not pleased with Chris Rock’s opening monologue at Sunday night’s (Feb. 28) Oscars. The highly-anticipated performance found viewers sitting on their hands, waiting for Rock to address the #OscarsSoWhite controversy, and the singer/actor was among those who felt let down. Mainly because of Rock’s commentary on one thing: Jada Pinkett-Smith’s boycott.

Taking a stab at Pinkett-Smith’s assertion that black entertainers need not “beg” for inclusion, Rock questioned what the actress’s relevance to the issue was. Comparing Pinkett-Smith’ relation to the Oscars to his own relation to a certain pop star’s undergarments, Rock really took it there.

“Jada got mad, Jada says she’s not coming, protesting, I’m like — doesn’t she have a TV show? Jada boycotting the Oscars is like me boycotting Rihanna’s panties. I wasn’t invited,” he said.

Ahead of the Oscars, Tyrese attempted to encourage Rock to back out of his Oscars hosting gig. And apparently the results of the comedian’s failure to heed his advice “f**ked up” Tyrese’s night. Posting video commentary of his thoughts to Instagram, Tyrese also included a lengthy caption addressing the monologue. Luckily for the singer’s mood, the event’s only saving grace was Leonardo DiCaprio’s long-overdue win.

“Did you really use your STAGE to tear down and diminish one of the strongest most fearless black women IN this town as the world watched??? Jokes are just jokes right???? Not when someone is trying to affect change,” Tyrese wrote. “Not when someone is willing to put it ALL on the line to affect change for our daughters and sons of the future.”

Has this moved past the “agree to disagree” stage for Tyrese? Watch his reaction to Chris Rock below:

112 Hints At A Christian Music Collaboration With Kanye West

Kanye West's highly-anticipated album, Yandhi is nowhere to be found, but that doesn't mean the rapper hasn't been working on new music. In fact, Ye is looking into creating new tunes in the Christian music genre. According to 112's Slim, the R&B group is teaming up with Kanye to produce new music that will draw the new generation to church.

Slim made the revelation during an interview with TMZ on Monday (Jan. 21). Unfortunately, Slim wouldn't drop too many details about the project, but hinted that the collaboration could or could not happen.

"Kanye being a musical genius, he’ll do an album and then scrap it," he said. "Whatever happens, it’s something that God wanted to happen."

Slim's latest comments come shortly after a video surfaced online of 112 serenading Kim Kardashian with a rendition of their single "Cupid" on FaceTime. The clip went viral, prompting suspicion of a possible collaboration.

Aside from music, Slim said he also talked to Kanye to see where he was mentally. "Kanye is in a real good place," he revealed. "We were talking about things that were more spiritual and he’s in a real good place right now."

Stay tuned to see if the Kanye West and 112 Christian collaboration actually happens.

Chris Brown To Sue Rape Accuser For Defamation

Chris Brown is reportedly gearing up to take legal action against the woman who accused him of raping her at a hotel in Paris. The singer will reportedly sue her for defamation, TMZ reports.

Brown's Parisian lawyer, Raphael Chiche, says his client adamantly denies the allegations and plans to challenge them in court. "Chris Brown is free. No lawsuits were filed against him," Chiche said in a statement. "He vigorously challenges the charges against him. A complaint for slanderous denunciation will be filed tomorrow with the public prosecutor of Paris."

As previously reported, Brown was arrested on Jan. 22, after a 24-year-old woman filed a complaint claiming that he violently raped her in his Paris hotel. He was released from police custody without charges. Shortly after the incident, Brown took to Instagram where he claimed that the woman was lying. Another woman also jumped to the singer's defense, stating that he was not at the scene at the time of the alleged assault.

While the singer is free to leave the country, an official investigation into the alleged incident is still ongoing. It does not appear that Brown or his legal team have filed the defamation suit at this time.
