Her career was really hamstrung by her legal troubles with her record label.

    It didnít take away from her legacy though.

    With MJ, Prince, Whitney Houston and now Irene Cara gone, it feels like a generation is passing away.
    RIP to Irene Cara, when I was a kid that song was EVERYWHERE, damn shame her talent had to got through the things she did over a terrible contract. Sounds all to familiar.

    The generation passing away prior to the MJ's and Prince's and Whitney's, only have a few still hanging around who made their marks in the 60's and 70's. Losing Prince's peers feels worse, mans didn't make it to 60. The OG MTV generation passing is definitely unsettling.

    Also RIP to Clarence Gilyard Jr., I didn't ever watch Walker but it had it's fans. TO ME as a Die Hard fan he will always be the measuring stick to every IT guy I've ever come in contact with and how they are judged accordingly. I'm all- so and so was helpful but he wasn't no Theo lol.

    If Kanye's worthless ass is alive in 12 months, I'll be absolutely shocked.

    This dude has been flirting with this stuff for years and his fans just buried their head in the sand and screamed "mental illness!" because he makes good music but... their ain't no coming back from this. Good riddance.

    Posted this is the wrong thread by mistake...

    It's interesting that the clips I've seen of Ye's appearance on the Alex Jones show he seems more focused and coherent than when he walked off the Tim Pool show. Clearly, he's decided that he has nothing to lose anymore and is going all in on being shocking. However, other than gaining attention for the sake of gaining attention, I can't see what he thinks his end goal is supposed to be. I mean, this certainly isn't going to help him get any new endorsements or financial deals...

    Can someone tell me how the guy once known for saying "George Bush does not care about black people" became a Hitler apologist? Like, what were the signs we were missing?

    Well, this article might help.

    Apparently, he's been a big fan of Hitler and Nazis for a long time, the people who would have murdered him, his ex, and his children.

    He off the rails for sho. Imo this was the trajectory all along. Dude's talent was not just beats and rhymes but also making the blatant narcissism work for him. I mean work work for him. Anybody think it was his momma idea to get that work done on her?

    Even with the Bush comment, it wasn't even close to an actual response of what the gevernment lacked. Tbf the scope and sight of that tragedy caught all of us off guard, his response was just raw emotion coming out based on little understanding. I'll take the over for a box of cookies, on @MindofShadow's 12 months.

    This showed up in my feed and I just thought it was odd. It's an ad for AAA/Lenscrafters but what's going on with that pose? Are we back in 1973 or something? It's like he's got his arm around her, but not really so no one get upset!

    I have seen celebrities taking pictures with their fans like this where their hands are hovering instead of actually touching the other person.

    Maybe it's me, but it seems like they went out of their way to be make sure the black man is not touching the white woman. Like they were afraid of offending people or something.

    Celebrities with fans I get, there's always someone out there looking to make something look salacious. But this was just an ad with a couple of models who're supposed to look friendly.

    That's it exactly. Their clothes are touching, but their skin is not, as if white skin touching black skin will give the white person "cooties" or something.
    Watching television is not an activity.
