Drake’s Security Almost Blessed Singer Shawn Mendes With A Fade [VIDEO]

Overzealous fans and music industry associates take note—Drake’s people are not playing when it comes to his safety. Shawn Mendes almost caught a major fade from Drizzy’s bodyguard.

On a recent appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, the Pop crooner told a cautionary tale of how he went up to the 6 God and almost got manhandled by security at a recent concert both attended.

“I’m watching The Weeknd and we’re up on this riser and Drake’s also there watching the show with like another few artists and stuff. I go over like, ‘Oh, that’s Drake. I’ll go say hi. He must remember me from previous experiences like twice.’”

But then life came at Mendes pretty fast.

“So I go over to touch his side and his 6’6,” 300-pound security guard. Next thing I know, I’m in the middle of The Weeknd’s show with like my arm hooked behind my back. Drake’s security guard just has me completely at his mercy. And I’m like, ‘Oh no!” he admitted.

Thankfully the incident was in Drake’s eyesight and the “Gyalchester” rapper intervened thus saving his fellow Canadian. “I see Drake look over and in my eyes, it was like, ‘Please help me. Please, Drake.’ In that moment, if he didn’t remember who I was, I probably would have… I don’t know what I would have done” Shawn said.

Famed Gamer PewDiePie On Fade Watch After Blurting N-Word Online

PewDiePie, a popular live gamer who runs a highly-viewed YouTube channel, has found himself once again the focus of controversy. The native of Sweden blurted out the n-word with the hard “r” over the weekend during a live stream, adding himself once more to the on sight fade watch for being a spineless racist masking his harsh words as jokes.

Born Felix Arvid Ulf Kjellberg, the 27-year-old YouTube “star” boasts over 57 million subscribers on his channel and well over 14 billion plays. A figure in the “Let’s Play” movement, PewDiePie’s gaming exploits, and over-the-top humor has made him something of a cult star in that select circle.

During a broadcast, while playing PlayerUnknown’s Battleground, an opponent was assaulting him with shots which Kjellberg replied online with, “What a f—–ng n—-r sorry, but what the f–k.”

Kjellberg then said, “I don’t mean that in a bad way.”


This latest offensive slip comes after PewDiePie lost contracts with Disney’s Maker Studios and YouTube after urging his fans to post anti-Semitic jokes and videos of his featuring reported Nazi imagery. Game makers  Campo Santo plan to file DCMA takedown requests to remove videos of Kjellberg playing its Firewatch title, according to Variety.

PewDiePie has yet to respond to the drama, but according to his Twitter feed, he’s not worried about the fade that should be raining down on him from on high soon.

LeBron James Does Not Want To Bless Kyrie Irving With The Proper Fade, Allegedly

Kyrie Irving sent the basketball world into a spiral when word got out that he requested a trade from the Cleveland Cavaliers. One of the most dubious rumors is that LeBron James wanted to put hands on his soon to be ex-point guard. 

Blame Stephen A. Smith for the reported fade delivery desire.

However, King James says that’s not the case. The future NBA hall of famer took to Twitter to say that such allegations are #NotFacts

#NotFacts people! Boooo!! Get another source. ‍♂️. #EnjoyingMySummer #YouDoTheSame ,” said James an RT of the SLAM mag story on Smith’s account.

As for Irving, he just wants to be the star of the show. All good.

Kyrie Irving also thinks the world is flat, though.

Migos and Chris Brown Almost Shot The Fade At The BET Awards?

What didn’t happen at the BET Awards this past weekend? Word is that Migos and Chris Brown’s factions got into fisticuffs when the two parties crossed paths. 

For those who may not be aware, the Internet has ascertained that Migos rapper Quavo is blowing Karrueche Tran’s back out. Considering she is the always emotion Chris Brown’s ex, the R&B crooner feels a ways, going as far as saying he was betrayed.

At the premiere for Beat Em Down Brown’s new video (actually, Future’s), shortly after the BET Awards show, the camp’s ran into each other, and ish got testy.

Reports TMZ:

Sources at the party tell us Chris had just finished premiering his new music video with Future at the event … near Microsoft Theater in downtown L.A. We’re told the guys from Migos were walking in at the same time, and when they came face-to-face with Chris’ crew things got tricky.

Witnesses tells us someone in Chris’ group pushed Quavo, and then one of the Migos guys jumped in  … but then he got punched. We’re told Chris kept walking while all of this was going on — perhaps, wisely, realizing he don’t need any heat from Johnny Law. However, we’re told Migos and some friends followed Chris to his car and surrounded him. Ultimately, Chris was able to leave without anyone getting hurt … but not before some very tense moments.

Why does everyone want to test the Migos (things got awkward between the ATL trio and Joe Budden and Akademiks earlier in the evening)? Have they not seen what happened to Sean Kingston?

Just saying.

Offset Threatens Ebro With The Fade, We Trust They’ll Squash It At Summer Jam

Migos rapper Offset is a little peeved with Hot 97’s Ebro Darden. So much so that he threatened the radio host with the fade. 

A probably 100% fake news story about Offset breaking up with his girlfriend, reality TV star Cardi B, is what led to this struggle. Ebro shared a pic of said story, while being sure to note he alarmed at its allegation that Offset gets $ 250K a verse, which he supposedly charged Cardi B.

In turn, Offset took offense, and let Ebro know that he considers him a sucka—on his mama, too. The Shade Room made sure to capture the comment gangsterism. No shots, we know Offset is certainly ’bout that life.

Considering that Migos are headlining Hot 97’s Summer Jam this weekend, things could get awkward. Old Man Ebro isn’t tripping over the matter, though, and is looking forward to seeing Offset on Sunday.

We trust they’ll work things out, peacefully, for cultural purposes. Probably already have.

Viewers of “Basketball Wives” are anxiously awaiting to see the moment when after weeks of tension, Evelyn Lozada will face off with Jackie Christie.

As previously reported the BBW O.G.s have had issues over Evelyn’s donation to a GoFundMe for Jackie’s estranged daughter and a midseason trailer shows them nearly coming to blows.

“You’re a non motherf***g factor!” says Jackie using Evelyn’s signature catchphrase.

Evelyn’s since spoken out about their near brawl, and she’s explaining that while she’s mostly turned over a new leaf, Jackie made a rude remark about her daughter Shanice that sent her over the edge.


Oop! Jackie’s been known to push more than a few buttons.

What do YOU think she said about Evelyn’s daughter???




Tahiry Jose Arrested On Her Birthday For Delivering A Fade

Former Love & Hip Hop: New York star Tahiry Jose recently found herself in cuffs, on her birthday no less. The reality show star and Internet vixen was pinched for allegedly blessing her sort of roommate with a fade. 

It all went down on Cinco De Mayo, too.

Reports TMZ:

The incident went down on Cinco de Mayo, Tahiry’s 38th birthday, after she got into a physical altercation with a woman who was staying in her New Jersey home.

According to arrest docs, Tahiry punched and scratched the woman in her face … and yanked her hair, leaving “reddish bruises” on the right side of her face.

Tahiry tells TMZ … SHE was the victim, and was merely defending herself. She claims she got home and the woman — whom she’d just recently allowed to stay with her — jumped her and started breaking stuff.

Tahiry was booked for assault and released the next day, but says she plans to press charges too.

So for now, Joe Budden’s ex is back at work, doing whatever it is she exactly does.

No shots, she’s got hands bruh.
