Maxwell & Mary J. Blige Are Heading On The King & Queen Of Hearts Tour

Mary J. Blige and Maxwell announce dates for their upcoming tour. 

Save those coins because Maxwell and Mary J. Blige are heading on tour across the U.S. this fall through winter. The reigning champs of R&B recently announced the dates for the King & Queen of Hearts Tour Wednesday (Sept. 7).

The 24-date trek will kick off Nov. 5 in Baltimore and conclude in Chicago on Dec. 14, with stops in major cities including New York, Detroit, Atlanta, Miami, Las Vegas, and Los Angeles. The North American leg of the tour is following the duo's 10-date, European sweep, hitting cities like London, Germany, and Paris.

Mary J. and Maxwell's tour is expected to be the perfect marriage of R&B's soul and passion. "Maxwell is a man that we need as women,” Blige told Billboard. "He sings from his heart and soul with an amazing voice. When you hear him, you feel comforted, good, sexy, sly. You feel like you want to go out with your girls and then you also feel like you want to lay up with your man. He just gives you that freedom as a woman to be all those sexy, empowering and beautiful things. Women need to feel like there’s some man out there that really cares and will speak to them through song."

Maxwell also noted that he's excited to embark on this journey with the "No More Drama" singer as well. "This is a bucket list situation for me, something we’ve been trying to bring together because our audiences are each other’s," Maxwell stated. "Mary’s soulful voice and the way she connects with the  audience; her warmth and giving nature in an industry that can make you cold, stale and jaded: I’ve learned a lot from her in that regard. And this isn’t just a love fest for people who have followed our music. This is a celebration of New York, R&B/soul music and the ‘90s."

As for what fans can expect, Maxwell hints the show will be full of surprises and will opt for freestyling rather than curated performances. "Anything can happen. Once we start rehearsing, we’ll sit down and pull some stuff together organically," the "Pretty Wings" singer said.

Cardi B Defends "Twerk" Video Against Conservative

Cardi B teamed up with the City Girls for their sexy "Twerk" video, in which the Miami and Bronx women twerked along the beautiful beaches with other buxom black and brown babes.

Some loved the videos, others not so much. One naysayer conservative Washington, D.C. video columnist took to Twitter to challenge Cardi b and other liberal women on how the provocative video will help during the #MeToo movement.

In the Era of #meToo how exactly does this empower women? Leftists, @iamcardib , feel free to chime in. THX ..

— Stephanie Hamill (@STEPHMHAMILL) January 21, 2019

Cardi B saw the tweet and responded to Hamill directly telling the former Trump national diversity coalition advisor that what a woman wears has no bearing on how much respect she should be given.

"It says to women that I can wear and not wear whatever I want. do whatever I want and that NO still means," the "I Like It" rapper tweeted. "So Stephanie chime in..If I twerk and be half naked does that mean I deserve to get raped and molested? I want to know what a conservative woman like you thinks."

It says to women that I can wear and not wear what ever I want. do w.e I want and that NO still means NO. So Stephanie chime in..If I twerk and be half naked does that mean I deserve to get raped and molested ? I want to know what a conservative woman like you thinks 🤔

Cardi B has been making ground in the political arena after commenting on the U.S. partial shutdown. However, since then the "Bodak Yellow" artist admits she's received negativity ever since. She insists she's not trying to change anyone's political preferrance.

All these conservatives been harassing me and telling me the most disgusting things these past few days.Listen I’m not telling ya to turn liberal all I’m saying is to admit that your president is fuckin up this country right now! Liberal or conservative we ALL suffer as citizens.

Not Sicko Mode: Nick Cannon Says Travis Scott Isn't For The Culture

Nick Cannon takes great issue with Travis Scott performing at the Super Bowl but says for Big Boi, it's okay.

During a sitdown with TMZ's Raquel Harper, the host of Masked Singer said "I'm Kaepernick all day," but said Scott doesn't have enough "cultural equity" to perform during Super Bowl LIII halftime show.

"To me, I call it cultural equity. So we're not mad at Big Boi for performing at the Super Bowl. He's for the people," 38-year-old Cannon explained. "[For Scott] he has to walk gingerly."

Harper followed up and questioned Cannon, to which he further explained having a child with Kylie Jenner also reduced his "cultural equity."

"It's more about truly having integrity in your music and in your art form. The people you choose to interact with. The people you choose to procreate with. That decision wasn't for the culture. But we not mad at you," Cannon said.

Harper reminded Cannon he's dated a few white women in his past, to which Cannon then looked into the camera and shouted: "I love white women."

The New England Patriots will face off against the Los Angeles Rams, Sunday, Feb. 3 for Super Bowl LIII. Maroon 5 along with Travis Scott and Big Boi are set to take the stage at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta. Out of respect for Colin Kaepernick, several artists declined to perform including Rihanna, Cardi B and JAY-Z who reportedly tried to talk Scott out of it.

After Scott agreed to perform, reports revealed he spoke with Kaepernick about the decision. Kaepernick's longtime girlfriend Nessa Diab took to social media to blast Scott and say it was a lie.
