Stevie Wonder: "Voting For Trump Is Like Asking Me To Drive"

In REAL LIFE Stevie Wonder said this.

Along with being a multi-platinum singer and songwriter Stevie Wonder also has jokes. On Friday (Nov. 6) Wonder took the stage in Philadelphia for a free "Get Out And Vote" concert for Democratic Presidential Nominee, Hillary Clinton. And while Wonder may not be able to see, that hasn't prohibited him from being able to form his opinion about who he thinks is the best choice for president.

During a sit down with Philly.com's music critic Dean De Luca, the Songs In The Key of Life artist made a comical, yet, shrewd comparison between his disability and Donald Trump's ability to lead.

"My youngest child is 1 year old. She is a junior Millennial. So I’m looking at the future. And I’ll give you a point of reference. As much as you have great love for me and you think I’m funny and la la la la la and I make you laugh and all that, if you had an emergency situation and needed to go to the hospital, and you had to get there right away, would you want me driving your car?"

"No, you wouldn't be at the top of my list," De Luca responded.

While the joke may have placed De Luca (and anyone with home training) on the spot, Wonder--no pun intended--drove home his point home about not being able to get behind the wheel and Trump not being fit to be the Commander In Chief.

"Exactly. Because I’m not an experienced driver, right? So my belief is that Hillary is an experienced person of the government, and she has spent 30 years with a commitment. Not to mention that her parents taught her in a kinder way, to have respect and love for all people. That’s the person I want to govern, to be the leader of this nation."

Point taken, Mr. Wonder.

A$AP Rocky Comments On R. Kelly: "He Needs To Be Dealt With"

A$AP Rocky stopped by Angie Martinez's Power 105.1 radio show to discuss his annual Yams Day celebration in honor of deceased A$AP Mob member, A$AP Yams. The event will take place Thursday (Jan. 17) at the Barclays Center.

While discussing the special guests that will take the stage, Rocky said that his "brother" French Montana is one of the MCs who will be there. When asked about French's recent comments about R. Kelly, Rocky decided to put his two cents in on the highly-publicized sexual misconduct allegations against the Pied Piper of R&B.

"Can I say something about that?" said Rocky when queried abut French's take on Kelly's legacy.  "I think [French] had a Kanye moment where he was trying to articulate something and his delivery just wasn't right. I think what he was trying to say was people like Bill Cosby, people like R. Kelly, [they] build up this legacy for a long time, and it just gets taken away."

Rocky continued by bringing up Kelly's marriage to the then-underage Aaliyah, expressing shock that her age on their marriage certificate was forged.

"Don't get me wrong- do I know if R. Kelly is a rapist and all that other stuff? It seems like he is," he exclaimed. "I mean, like he married Aaliyah when she was, like, 15... He married Aaliyah at 14, 15… how old was he when that alleged video came out? Too g*d damn old. I look at it like this. If that man has a sickness, he needs to be dealt with. He done beat the court dates… it goes to show the whole system is corrupted… R. Kelly was the King of R&B… and this motherf**ker now is known for being a sex pedophile.”

Watch his comments above around the 16:40 mark.

Cardi B Comments On Government Shutdown: "Our Country Is In A Hellhole"

Cardi B wanted to give her two cents on the now-25 day partial government shutdown. The Grammy-nominated rapper got political on her Instagram page, stating that she believes our country is in a "Hellhole" and she feels terribly for those affected.

"It’s been a little bit over three weeks. Trump is now ordering, as in summoning, federal government workers to go back to work without getting paid," she said. Cardi continued by telling people not to drag former President Barack Obama's partial government shutdown into the conversation, as his shutdown was for a better reason than Trump's dream border wall.

"Now, I don't want to hear any of y'all motherf**kas talkin' 'bout, 'Oh, but Obama shut down the government for 17 days,' Yeah, b***h! For healthcare!" she continued. "So your grandma could check her blood pressure and you b****es could go check y'all p***y at the gynecologist with no motherf**kin' problem. This sh*t is really f**kin' serious, bro. This sh*t is crazy. Like, our country is in a hellhole right now. All for a f**kin' wall."

The Invasion of Privacy MC continues by stating that she is "scared" and feels badly for those who aren't able to be compensated for their work.

"Now, I now a lot of y’all don’t care…  b***h I’m scared," she concludes. "This is crazy, and I really feel bad for these people that gotta go to f**kin' work without getting f**kin' paid."

According to The Blast, Mason will surrender in Henry County, Ga. on Wednesday (Jan. 16) after a judge issued a warrant for his arrest, citing “terroristic threats and acts.” A police report obtained by the site states that Mason told Timothy Savage, the father of Kelly’s alleged cult member Jocelyn Savage, that he was going to “f**king kill” him when he saw him, and that he was going to harm him and his family.

A second manager for Kelly, Don Russell, is also reportedly under investigation for allegedly harassing and threatening the Savage family for participating in the six-part docu-series, Surviving R. Kelly. 

Mr. Savage was reportedly texted by Mr. Russell, who said it would “be best for him and his family if the documentary [Surviving R. Kelly] does not air." During a phone call that was put on speaker, Russell reportedly threatened to reveal information about Mr. Savage if he did not pull out of the doc.

Kelly is under investigation in both Georgia and Illinois, which is reportedly a direct response to the allegations made in the Lifetime docu-series.
