Diddy Dreams To Own His Own Football League In Wake Of NFL National Anthem Controversy

Published

on

Diddy is putting his money where his mouth is in the NFL National Anthem debate in a major way. NFL commissioner Roger Goodell sent out a memo addressing the National Anthem scandal stating that “everyone should stand for the National Anthem.”

“We live in a country that can feel very divided. Sports, and especially the NFL, brings people together and lets them set aside those divisions, at least for a few hours. The current dispute over the National Anthem is threatening to erode the unifying power of our game, and is now dividing us, and our players, from many fans across the country.

“I’m very proud of our players and owners who have done the hard work over the past year to listen, understand and attempt to address the underlying issues within their communities. At our September committee meetings, we heard directly from several players about why these issues are so important to them and how we can support their work. And last week, we met with the leadership of the NFLPA and more players to advance the dialogue.

“Like many of our fans, we believe that everyone should stand for the National Anthem. It is an important moment in our game. We want to honor our flag and our country, and our fans expect that of us. We also care deeply about our players and respect their opinions and concerns about critical social issues. The controversy over the Anthem is a barrier to having honest conversations and making real progress on the underlying issues. We need to move past this controversy, and we want to do that together with our players.

“Building on many discussions with clubs and players, we have worked to develop a plan that we will review with you at next week’s League meeting. This would include such elements as an in-season platform to promote the work of our players on these core issues, and that will help to promote positive change in our country. We want to ensure that any work at the League level is consistent with the work that each club is doing in its own community, and that we dedicate a platform that can enable these initiatives to succeed. Additionally, we will continue the unprecedented dialogue with our players.

“I expect and look forward to a full and open discussion of these issues when we meet next week in New York. Everyone involved in the game needs to come together on a path forward to continue to be a force for good within our communities, protect the game, and preserve our relationship with fans throughout the country. The NFL is at its best when we ourselves are unified. In that spirit, let’s resolve that next week we will meet this challenge in a unified and positive way.”

After reading the memo, which was also sent to all 32 teams, Diddy writes:

“I did have a dream to own a nfl lteam but after this post my DREAM IS TO OWN OUR OWN LEAGUE. WHERE YOU CAN BE YOURSELF. Have a retirement plan. Have the freedom to be a great human and protest for your people without being demonized for your beliefs as a KING!!!!! New dream alert!!!!! Sell me the NFL NOW!!!! #fuckthat #takedat AND FOR THE RECORD IM NOT EVEN MAD. ITS OUR FAULT FOR NOT HAVING THE COURAGE OUR ANCESTORS HAD!!!!! Maaaaaaan!!!! #TAKEDAT AGAIN”

Mr A-List The Man Responsible For Jump Starting Drake’s Baby Mama Sophie’s Career

Published

Pusha T may have started the beef with Drake and its looking like he have ended it with “The Story Of Adidon” diss track. The GOOD Music M.C. went for the kill by mentioning Drake’s alleged secret baby boy Adonis by former vixen and porn star Sophie aka Rosee Divine. Everyone has been asking me if I had the scoop and that I do have.

Sophie came to America from Paris about 6 or 7 years ago. She met Mr. A List who has been doing marketing and promoting in NYC for years telling him of what a rough time she was having here in the states. You know the come up always starts off with a good sob story. He took Sophie under his wing creating the name Rosee Divine and developing a brand for her. She wasn’t your average white girl, she was extremely tall and had one of the biggest asses you ever seen so getting attention would be pretty easy for her. Mr. A List started getting Rosee booked for celebrity parties around NYC which would be the start of her meeting high profile celebrities like Iman Shumpert, Drake, Mack Maine, Joe Budden, Omarion and more.

Mr. A List started taking Rosee to model castings which also included butt naked modeling as I would like to call it. She was featured on World Star Uncut and more. This was the start of Rosee’s alleged porn career. It started with a few butt naked solo videos with baby oil and things just begin to get a bit more raunchy from there. Mr. Alist was responsible for getting Rosee casted on MempHitz & Toya Wright’s The Real Mistresses of Atlanta as well. Drake’s baby mama got her start here in NYC with the help of Mr. A List. There is so much more that I will reveal later this week.

Janelle Monáe Comes Out As ‘Pansexual.’ What Does That Mean?

Published

By

We all have wondered if Janelle Monae was gay or straight over the years and she has now decided to be free and let is all know what the deal is.

According To Washington Post:

In a Rolling Stone cover story, Janelle Monáe came out as “pansexual.” After identifying as bisexual, Monáe says that once she read about pansexuality, she realized: “ ‘Oh, these are things that I identify with too.’ I’m open to learning more about who I am.”

If this is the first time you’ve heard this term, let us translate.

GLAAD puts pansexuality under the bisexual umbrella, defining the term as “anyone attracted to people of all genders or sexes, or regardless of sex or gender.” Pansexuality is a more expansive label than bisexual, including attraction beyond the male-female gender binary, to include those who are trans, gender-fluid, androgynous, intersex and more.

People define “pansexual” in varying ways. For example, sexologist Carol Queen tells Vogue Magazine that “pansexual people do not desire everybody, they just don’t rule a person out because of gender,” adding that “there is no exact definition of this term.”

Rolling Stone notes that Monáe has long dodged questions about her sexuality, saying “I only date androids” and characterizing herself as “sexually liberated” rather than slapping a label on her sexuality. But deeper clues are present in her music, she says. “If you listen to my albums, it’s there,” Monáe adds, citing “Mushrooms & Roses” and “Q.U.E.E.N.,” which mention affection for a character named “Mary.”

Monáe isn’t the first celebrity to come out as pansexual; Jazz Jennings, Angel Haze, Laci Green and Miley Cyrus also identify as pansexual. For example, rapper Haze defines pansexual as “just want[ing] love. To have a connection with anyone you can find it with,” regardless of gender.

In Rolling Stone, Monáe doesn’t define what pansexuality means to her but says that she wants to be a role model for anyone struggling with their sexuality. “I want young girls, young boys, nonbinary, gay, straight, queer people who are having a hard time dealing with their sexuality, dealing with feeling ostracized or bullied for just being their unique selves, to know that I see you,” she says. “This album is for you. Be proud.”
