Fake It Til You Make It: Twitter Trolls Shad Moss With #BowWowChallenge

Act like you're a millionaire just like Bow Wow. 

The Internet wins again with its latest Twitter challenge. After Shad Moss was exposed as a fake stunter for posting a stock photo of a private jet on Instagram when he was really flying on a commercial plane, Twitter wasn't ready to let the former child star rest. Instead, the rapper's epic fail launched the #BowWowChallenge, calling on fans to "fake it like Bow Wow and tweet like a millionaire."

There are some talented graphic designers on Twitter. While some trolls simply posted pics of them riding in a nice car adjacent to another image of them actually riding the bus, the challenge also brought out a number of Photoshop pros and photographers who played with angles and close ups.

The #BowWowChallenge was launched shortly after Charlamagne Tha God awarded Shad the Donkey of the Day on The Breakfast Club for his juvenile antics. Charlamagne also dubbed this period in time, "trans Bow Wow." "Shad Moss is a devil damn liar. When will you fools realize there is no future in frontin'," he said.

Bow Wow addressed the controversy late on Tuesday, accusing people of hating on him and trying to bring negativity to his circle. He may not have room for the jokes, but Twitter surely does. Check out the best of the #BowWowChallenge below.

The "Everybody Dies" rapper's bloody teaser track serves as the first look into the album's vibe, accompanying a haunting new video where Logic is seen bleeding out from a neck injury as he raps, smokes and loads a gun. The track, which urges listeners to put their "ego on the shelf," is a lyrical experience that comments on drug use, suicide, depression, and the expectation from others that ruin one's self-esteem.

Lizzo And Missy Elliott Team Up For Hypnotic Single "Tempo"

Lizzo has a new banger. The Detroit artist teamed up with Missy Elliott for her new track, "Tempo" on Wednesday (Mar. 20), and it's bound to shake the table.

The song's theme falls in line with Lizzo's past work; it's a body positive single, paying tribute to thick and curvy girls. After a powerful electric guitar intro, the song erupts into a head-knocking beat. "Slow songs, they for skinny h*es / Can't move all of this here to one of those (Hey) / I'm a thick b***h, I need tempo," she raps on the chorus.

Misdemeanor comes in on the third verse with bad b***h energy, spits controlled bars. "All the thick girls down on the flrrr (On the floor) / Ice on my neck like brrr (Like brrr) / I'm big-boned with nice curves," she raps.

Amid the song's release, Lizzo sat down with Apple Music's Beats 1 to talk about how she and Missy collaborated on the track. "She sent me a memoji of herself singing her verse, that's how I got the verse," she explained. "I got a memoji of Missy like smiling and then she just started rapping, and I was like, 'OMG what the hell' so I had to hook it up to my speaker system. But it wasn't even the actual track, it was like her going along in her studio."

Lizzo is gearing up for the release of her new project, Cuz I Love You, which is slated to drop on Apr. 19. Listen to "Tempo" in the video above.

You made this chubby, weird, black girl believe that ANYTHING was possible. And now we have a BANGER together 😩— till this day you continue to inspire me to make my dreams come true. Now go fuck it up to the #TEMPO and STREAM OUR SONG!!!! 🔥🎸 Love You @MissyElliott 💋 pic.twitter.com/xTMbWt3lM6

R. Kelly Sends Birthday Video To Daughter Through Instagram

During his viral interview with Gayle King earlier this month, R. Kelly tearfully revealed that he has no relationship with his three children. But possibly in an attempt to reestablish that connection with at least one of them, the R&B singer sent an Instagram video message wishing his daughter a happy birthday on Wednesday (Mar. 20).

In the video, Kelly cheerfully sang a soulful rendition of "The Happy Birthday Song," followed by a special message to his daughter. "Happy Birthday, baby. Daddy loves you. I love you. No matter what, I love you so much," he said.

Ordinarily, there wouldn't be anything newsworthy about a father sending love to his daughter on her birthday, but the video comes at a very unique time. Kelly recently spent several days in jail for an outstanding balance in back child support. The court determined that he owed his ex-wife Drea Kelly nearly $200,000 in child support payments that covered the kids' education, health and living expenses.

Additionally, the video message arrives nearly three months after Joann – also known as Buku Abi – released a lengthy statement in response to her father's ongoing sexual abuse case. She referred to her father as a "monster" and alluded to unpleasant interactions with him when she was a child. "I would never want anyone to feel the pain I have felt," she wrote in the Jan. 2019 message. "The same monster you all confronting me about is my father. I am well aware of who and what he is. I grew up in that house. My choice to not speak on him and what he does is for peace of mind."

Watch R. Kelly's video message below.
