Charlamagne Tha God Crowns Fox News' Laura Ingraham Donkey Of The Day

Tuesday night (Nov. 30) Vibe's  Editor-In-Chief Datwon Thomas went head-to-head with Fox News' Laura Ingraham after the the 2018 Grammy nominations were announced. For the first time in about 20 years, no white man has earned the prestigious Album of The Year nom. Ingraham invited Thomas onto her show to discuss what she perceived as the misogynistic and degrading lyrics from JAY Z and Kendrick Lamar who's albums 4:44 and DAMN respectively earned the nod.

Power 105.1's Charlamagne Tha God tuned in to see Thomas correct Ingraham on her interpretation of their lyrics and decided she rightfully earned the prestigious Donkey of The Day title. During the 14 minute dragging, Uncle Charla praised Thomas for maintaining his cool during the exchange, but admitted he wouldn't have done the same.

"One thing I'm not doing in my older age is explaining myself to culturally clueless, white people," Charlamagne said. To illustrate how degrading hip-hop is, Ingragam recited (as best she could) the lyrics to JAY Z's "Story of O.J," which according to The Breakfast Club host only proved Thomas' point.

"First off, Laura was too stupid to realize that the lyrics she decided to showcase from "The Story of O.J." are proving Hov's point just like Datwon said. JAY Z has evolved into a father, husband, businessman worth half a billion dollars, but Laura wants to paint him as a coke dealing, manager stabbing N-Word."

The Black Privilege author also wasn't too keen on Ingraham trying to make a connection between JAY Z and O.J. Simpson.

"Ms. Mayonaise listen. You know damn well Datwon was saying nothing in defense of O.J. You're just trying to demonize all black men so you take a black man that white people demonize--and rightfully so--like O.J. Simpson and make a correlation that doesn't exist between him and Hov," Charlamagne said. "Datwon is absolutely right and it's unfortunate they only picked those lyrics, but you know the picture they're trying to paint. They're trying to discredit and demonize two of our best and brightest and they just salty that they are nominated for Album of The Year and a white man isn't."

Whitney Houston's Friend Robyn Crawford To 'Set Record Straight' About Relationship In Memoir

Whitney Houston's lifelong friend, assistant and rumored love interest Robyn Crawford will reportedly "set the record straight" about her relationship with the late singer in a tell-all memoir.

According to PEOPLE, A Song for You: My Life with Whitney Houston will be released in the fall. Crawford, who was friends with Houston since they were children growing up in Newark, N.J., has rarely spoken about her relationship with the superstar.

"In A Song for You, Crawford, who served as Houston’s longtime confidante and executive assistant,'breaks her silence to share the moving and often complicated story of her life and relationship with Whitney,'" the publication writes.

It was believed that Houston and Crawford were in a secret romantic relationship. It was touched upon in the recently-released documentary Whitney, which Robyn did not participate in. It was discussed that Houston's family did not like the bond that the two had.

"I’ve never seen them do anything but I know that she was something that I didn’t want my sister to be involved with," Whitney's brother Gary stated in the documentary. Whitney decided to part ways with Robyn in the '90s, after she married Bobby Brown, and they did not talk for a long time.

It's Official: Joe Biden Announces 2020 Presidential Bid

After months of speculation and hints, former Vice President Joe Biden officially announced his bid for a 2020 presidency.

In a video announcing his run which was released on Thursday (April 25), Biden states that he wants to fix the issues in the country. What inspired him to run was Donald Trump’s response to the deadly 2017 white supremacist protest in Charlottesville, Va.

"In that moment, I knew the threat to this nation was unlike any I had ever seen in my lifetime," Biden says. The 76-year-old is also a former Delaware senator.

"I believe history will look back on four years of [Trump] and all he embraces as an aberrant moment in time," he continues in the video. "But if we give Donald Trump eight years in the White House, he will forever and fundamentally alter the character of this nation — who we are — and I cannot stand by and watch that happen."

In 2015, Biden stated that he would not be running for President, as he wanted to focus on healing from the loss of his son, Beau, to cancer. However, NPR reports that his family–especially his grandchildren– have “prodded” him to run.

He joins Kamala Harris, Cory Booker, Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren as politicians who have thrown their hat into the ring for a Democratic nomination.
