Long story short, word on the curb is…
Music Mogul Jay Z responded to the backlash he and his wife, Beyonce, received after being captured at the Super Bowl sitting during the national anthem performances. Now the controversy is this: Colin Kaepernick started a protest by kneeling on the sidelines during the National Anthem which later caused him to lose his job as a talented quarterback in the NFL. This happened about 3 years ago. Fast forward to now, in 2019, Jay Z signed on to work alongside the NFL to add more diversity and focus on righting some wrongs with the entertainment and things of that matter. Some people thought this was a slap in Cap’s face but Jay says it wasn’t. At a press conference, he said that we’re past the kneeling process and we’re moving on.
On Tuesday, Hov explained himself in front of a crowded auditorium at Columbia University.
He said he and his wife arrived during gospel artist Yolanda Adams’ performance and both became artists, admiring her and complimenting both Adams and Demi Lovato’s extraordinary voices.
““Then right after that, Demi [Lovato] comes out and we’re talking about how beautiful she looked and how she sounds and what she’s gone through in her life, for her to get on the stage, we were so proud of her. Then it finished, and my phone rang. And it was like ‘You know didn’t just…’ And I’m like ‘What?’ We didn’t stage that.” (The Jasmine Brand)
Do you believe him now?
The “Petty Prince” is back (kinda)! Rapper and mogul, 50 Cent was awarded $40,000 from a judge who dismissed claims made against him by reality star Teairra Marie. Marie filed a lawsuit against “Fif” for defamation after he reposted explicit videos and photos on social media. His argument was that he wasn’t the original poster so he’s not at fault. The judge agreed and although Marie hasn’t coughed a single dime since day one, he slapped on another $5,295.50. Now she’s responsible for paying him $40,000.
After the tragic helicopter accident that took the life of Kobe Bryant and 8 others late January, the rapper declared a change of heart. He vowed to abstain from petty arguments. So when he took to social media, leaving a capture to a post about his recent winnings, he simply said: “I’m not arguing anymore, so do you think you could have my money by Monday?” Where’s the lie? Here’s the full story.
Finally, there will be no long court battles or even any lawsuits filed in the near-fatal car crash that left comedian/actor, Kevin Hart and his two close friends badly injured in September.
Hart and his two friends went out to ride in Hart’s 1970 Plymouth Barracuda when the driver (not Kevin) lost control of the car and it went over an embankment in Malibu. All were severely injured; Kevin needing spinal surgery, following extensive physical therapy.
All parties are on the mend and have decided not to file any lawsuits against one another or against the car’s manufacturer. According to TMZ, they have 3 years to change their minds. We’ll wait.

Long story short! Word on the curb is…
The 81-point scorecard made by NBA legend Kobe Bryant, when the LA Lakers played the Toronto Raptors back in 2006, is now on for auction to help support the families of the 7 lives who perished in that horrific helicopter accident, along with Bryant and his 13-year-old daughter, Gianna late January. All the proceeds will benefit the MambaOnThree Fund, a charity that was set up to support the families of victims.
Academy Award-winner and comedian Mo’Nique took to social media to express her concern and disappointment with Auntie O (Oprah Winfrey) about how she treated her recent projects that include executive producing a documentary focusing on the Russell Simmons’ accusers, where Oprah recently decided to back out. The lengthy Instagram post also pointed out that Winfrey supported Michael Jackson’s accusers in the After Neverland documentary, suggesting ” race was the determining factor in the way that Winfrey handled the accusations of prominent figures“. There’s more but you can read more from the link provided. Oh, and Lady O has not yet responded.
Azriel Clary, ex-girlfriend to defamed singer R. Kelly, is working hard to make sure no one ever has to go through what she and countless women have gone through at the hands of the Pied Piper (or any other nasty, greasy, predators like him)! Clary is working with the feds in Kelly’s sexual assault case and she’s become a strong advocate for women who fall into the traps of sexual predators like Kelly. TMZ is reporting that the now 22-year-old is working with her parents and has plans to start her own foundation “dedicated to helping abused women take back control of their lives … much like she’s doing right now.”

Long story short:
Folks are upset with Beyonce and Jay Z for choosing to take a seat over a knee during the national anthem at this year’s Super Bowl. I didn’t know we were still doing that.
Antonio Brown publically apologized to his “baby mama” for acting a dang-fool; hoping this would get him on the field. We’ll wait…
Finally, Terry Crews had a change of heart and retracted his statement about not taking a stand in support of his former AGT judge, actress Gabrielle Union. But I’m thinking (by DWade’s tweet), his apology was pretty wack. He tried.

Since the news hit about the tragic loss of NBA legend, Kobe Bryant and the 8 beautiful lives, which included his 13 year old daughter, Gianna, fans and even celebrities have shared testimony that this great loss made them want to be better people on earth. Here’s the latest inside Word On The Curb entertainment report:
Since the loss of NBA legend Kobe Bryant, the Lakers organization has decided to reschedule the past two games to respect the grieving process for the players, families and Lakers Nation. Last night’s game and tonight’s game against the Clippers will be postponed to a later date. The organization will send notice once a date has been decided. Click this link for the full story.
The Kobe Effect has definitely changed the minds of some of the most influential people in hip hop. Both 50 Cent and T.I. have stated they will be making some changes to how they treat people and learn to appreciate those closer to them more, thanks to the legacy Kobe Bryant left behind. I guess that means, no more trolling and bullying from the “Petty Prince” 50 Cent and T.I. will focus on being loyal and more attentive to his bride (I’m saying this in my Tip voice). Good for you!
The late, great Kobe Bryant will be inducted in the Basketball Hall of Fame. The news came shortly after investigators of the horrific helicopter crash site revealed there was no black box found in the wreckage; indicating it may not have had one on the aircraft. It’s been confirmed that Bryant was the first-ballot enshrinment to be inducted alongside Tim Duncan and Kevin Garnett.
It’s also been reported, Gianna Bryant, Kobe’s 13 year old daughter who also perished in the crash, will be named an honorary member of the University of Connecticut Huskey Women’s Basketball team. This is something “Gi Gi” has always dreamed of.
LA Lakers Foward, LeBron James finally found the strength to share a heartfelt message to his good friend and brother, Kobe Bryant. He took to social media saying how hard this was for him to accept and that he’ll carry the team they way Kobe would want. Here’s some of what James had to say “Literally just heard your voice Sunday morning before I left Philly to head back to LA,” he wrote. “Didn’t think for one bit in a million years that would be the last conversation we’d have.” Click here for more.

While the world continues to find answers and heal after the tragic loss of the 9 passengers who perished in a horrific helicopter crash that took the lives of NBA legend Kobe Bryant and 13-year-old daughter, Gianna, there are more upsetting events going on in the entertainment world.
Disgraced media mogul, Russell Simmons’ sex assault accuser documentary received high praise at this year’s Sundance Film festival, despite his attempts to have it gone and Oprah Winfrey backing out as EP. Here’s more on the story
Recently retired and married, rapper, Nicki Minaj and her family received some bad news that her brother, Jelani Maraj was sentenced to 25 years to life for child rape. TMZ was first to break the story.
More news on Minaj in the news as she and her husband ran into Minaj’s former boyfriend, Meek Mill and got into a shouting match inside a department store. Witnesses say there were no punches thrown (just insults). TMZ is reporting
All 9 passengers who died tragically in the helicopter crash that killed NBA legend Kobe Bryant and his 13-year-old daughter, Gianna have been revealed. Weather is a possible reason for why the pilot was having difficulty flying the aircraft, but investigators are still looking for more to determine what really happened. It was reported there was no “black box” on the helicopter. This could make it very difficult to find answers. Here’s more on this story as it continues to develop.

Breaking News: The world was hit hard with the tragic news that NBA legend, Kobe Bryant was killed in a helicopter crash while traveling to a basketball game with his eldest daughter, Gianna and reportedly 7 other passengers, including the pilot.
Details are slowly coming in and the cause of the crash is yet to be determined.
Personal reflection: I remember taking my younger brother to see Kobe when he played in the McDonald’s All American Classic here in Pittsburgh. He was only in high school at the time but since then, I was amazed by his talent.
I remember when he decided to go pro right after high school and being concerned that he should have gone to college first. He did ok, thank GOD!
I remember hearing people talk, no argue, about who was better; Kobe or MJ! There really wasn’t a comparison, in my opinion, because I felt like Kobe and Michael Jordan were the same person. Kobe was just the rewind of what MJ was. Their style, mannerisms, temperments, jump shots and slam dunks were just alike! I didn’t follow MJ’s career as close as I followed Bryant’s but it felt good to see what I saw in both players when they played.
Fans and celebrity friends from around the world continue to share their thoughts and prayers for the families.
This one hit hard! I haven’t felt this way since we lost Whitney Houston. You only have a few (legends) that you love, embrace and welcome into your homes, lives, and hearts. Kobe Bryant, although I wasn’t a big basketball fan (I tried to be but I always caught on too late) he was one of the great ones I assumed would stick around long enough to witness his grandchildren grow up and set out and into the world to be as great as he was if not greater.
People can say what they want. They can bring up his past mistakes and talk about how selfish he was as a player but I tell you what! They’re definitely keeping those comments to themselves today and saying a prayer for his family because they know he deserved that much respect! He was indeed one of the greatest of his time! I’m really proud of the young man he grew to become; through the ups and downs. Proud for all that he’s done for the NBA, the African-American community, and for the world. Thank you, Kobe.
Please pray for the Bryant family as his wife not only lost a husband but her 13-year-old daughter. Prayers also go out to the families of the 7 passengers who lost their lives in this tragic event.
Bryant is survived by his wife, Vanessa, and three daughters, Natalia, Bianca and Capri. He was 41.

A few years ago, I had the pleasure of “chopping it up” with a very talented actor and comedian who has no problem making everyone in the building (on our floor) very uncomfortable. Little did I (we) know, he was chopping us DOWN!
Marlon Wayans is not shy from the camera nor is he one to hide behind anything that looks out of place. In his last visit at WAMO 100 (Pittsburgh), while promoting his Improv show, he filmed our lobby which was the subject of jokes, puns, shade, and uncomfortable criticism. He meant no harm but hell if it didn’t kick us in the gut.
See the clip below:
Fast forward two years later, we replaced the old rug, we painted the walls and even added a few studios. So when the comedian walked in, he quickly remembered where he was and was ready to go!
It wasn’t as bad as it was last time (we had a small mess because we were preparing for a station promotion the next day).
I tried to take his attention off of the many distractions in our studio and boy was that difficult.
Watch the video to see for yourself.
(Sidenote: I believe this was days before comedian John Witherspoon passed away.)
(whew!) We got through that one! Thank you, Jesus!
