Post Malone Gets First #1 Billboard Hot 100 Single With “Rockstar”

Lil B‘s favorite sort of rapper, sort of singer Post Malone has won fans over with his particular brand of rap crooning with his megahit “Congratulations” alongside Quavo still getting burn. The Texas native is flying high again with his first #1 Billboard Hot 100 single in “Rockstar” featuring Atlanta’s 21 Savage, which knocked Cardi B’s “Bodak Yellow” from the top spot.

Billboard reports:

Congratulations are in order for Post Malone, whose “Rockstar,” featuring 21 Savage, hits No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart (dated Oct. 28), marking the first leader for each artist. Plus, Portugal. The Man’s “Feel It Still” reaches the Hot 100’s top five, and takes over atop the Radio Songs chart, while Sam Smith returns to the Hot 100’s top 10 with “Too Good at Goodbyes.”

“Rockstar,” released on Republic Records, becomes the 1,068th No. 1 in the Hot 100’s 59-year history. Post Malone (born Austin Richard Post) had previously peaked at a No. 8 high with “Congratulations,” featuring Quavo, in July, while 21 Savage (Shayaa Bin Abraham-Joseph) had hit a No. 12 best with “Bank Account.”

Post keeps adding to his epic 2017, this after late last month “Rockstar” broke the Apple Music streaming record. Pretty safe to say Post Malone won’t be talking that he wants to be a rock and country star garbage anymore.

NFL ratings down nearly 8 percent from first 6 weeks of 2016

NFL ratings continue to drop, Nielsen figures revealed Tuesday.

Viewership has dropped 7.5 percent compared to the first six weeks of the 2016 campaign, according to ESPN's Darren Rovell, and 18.7 percent compared to the beginning of the 2015 season.

Last season, the league attributed unusually low viewership to coverage of the presidential election, while others blamed the declining quality of games.

Political contention has certainly been a theme this season after President Donald Trump implored owners to fire players who protest during the national anthem. Many players stepped up their protests against racial inequality and police brutality in response, leading some viewers to disavow the league.

Credit Suisse lowered its ratings of FOX and CBS stock last week due to declining NFL viewership.

The audience for Monday Night Football, however, has increased 6 percent compared to this point last year.

Dancing with the Stars Recap: Who Got the First Perfect Score?

Disney Week made its way to Dancing with the Stars, and there was no fairytale ending for the celebrities on this special night of the ABC reality series. 

With one couple definitely going home, tensions were at an all-time high, but one couple managed to get a perfect score, so it wasn’t all bad. 

Let’s briefly break down the performances of the night, so we can establish who did not make it through to the next heat of the competition. 

Victoria Arlen and Val Chmerkovskiy

After emotions ran a little too high, this performance was all about bringing the fun back to the forefront, and that was a good thing. You could tell Victoria was in a much better place than she was last week. They threw it all the way back to 1928 for a homage to Steamboat Willie. 

She and Val fit together like a glove, and their performance was a well-choreographed one that proved they have been taking feedback on board. 

Score: 27/30!

Vanessa Lachey and Maksim Chmerkovskiy:

Vanessa and Maks have been solid dancers all season long, and despite some alleged behind the scenes drama, they do work well together. 

However, they aren’t exactly offering anything new with their performances. With some of the other couples going from strength-to-strength, this pair appears to be stuck in a rut. 

That’s not to say their waltz was terrible. They just need to change things up a little. 

They could have done so much different with their Snow White and the Seven Dwarves inspired performance. 

Score: 24/30!

Lindsey Stirling and Mark Ballas

Lindsay claimed she always wanted to be a Disney princess, and it sounded like the judges agreed that she would make a great one. 

The jazz from the couple won rave reviews from them, and Len even handed them out a 10. When does that ever happen with Len? He’s always got something negative to say. 

Score: 28/30!

Nick Lachey and Peta Murgatroyd

Being at the bottom of the scoreboard is not the best place to be, and Nick knew there was a lot riding on his performance. The couple performed the quickstep, and you could tell it took its toll on Nick. 

The Jungle Book is a great movie, and now, we will probably never watch it again thanks to Nick’s wooden performance. 

By the end, he looked like he wanted to take a nap on the stage, and the judges picked up on it. 

Score: 22/30!

Drew Scott and Emma Slater

Drew and Emma have had a lot of chemistry going for them since the season kicked off, and that always seems to go in their favor. The went with a fun performance inspired by The Muppets Movie. 

The waltz garnered them some praise from the judges, and they really deserved it. 

Score: 25/30!

Sasha Pieterse and Gleb Savchenko

This duo went with the rumba inspired by The Little Mermaid, and it was a delight. Sasha struggled with nerves earlier in the season, and has been improving every single week. 

The judges took note, with Carrie saying she was “mesmerized” by the whole display. Even Len gave another positive comment. What’s going on?

Score: 24/30!

Terrell Owens and Cheryl Burke

All of the performances seemed much better than recent ones, and Terrell’s was inspired by The Lion King. The whole performance was full of memorable moments, and Terrell managed to dance very well given the big height difference between him and Cheryl.

They secured their highest score of the season, and it was well deserved. 

Score: 25/30!

Frankie Muniz and Witney Carson

While his short-term memory may not be all that, Frankie’s short-term one is good because he continues to be one of the best dancers. The duo went with a tango to The Pirates of the Caribbean.

The performance would have definitely secured a perfect score had Witney’s heel not caught in her dress. 

Score: 29/30!

Jordan Fisher and Lindsay Arnold

Jordan knows a lot about Disney, and that’s because he has been in the family for a long time. He performed a foxtrot to his song “You’re Welcome” from Moana. 

It was flawless, and the judges seemed to think it was the best performance of the season. They were right. It secured them a perfect score. 

Score: 30/30!

Nikki Bella and Artem Chigvintsev

Nikki went with the upcoming move, Coco, as her inspiration, and it was a refreshing mix of style, confidence, and chemistry with Artem. It was a real surprise, and Len called it Nikki’s best dance yet. 

Score: 27/30!

Sasha Pieterse & Gleb Savchenko, and Frankie Muniz & Witney Carson found themselves in the bottom two. No, that’s not a joke. In the end, Sasha and Gleb were sent packing. 

It’s not up there with the Heather Morris elimination, but it sure was shocking. Nick Lachey should have been the one to go!

Dancing with the Stars continues next Monday on ABC!

Hip-Hop Museums Battle To Open First In NYC

The race to be the initial Hip-Hop museum is officially on. A battle to see who will be open to the public first between a Harlem and Bronx bound property is brewing.

Scheduled for a 2022 opening ceremony, the Universal Hip-Hop Museum announced in September that their facility will be housed in a new high profile South Bronx development. While the complex still needs to get approval from the local City Council, the institution’s Executive Director Rocky Bucano feels strongly about his site’s authenticity.

“All I know is that Hip-Hop is born in The Bronx. It would be sacrilegious to have a museum of Hip-Hop anywhere else in the world but The Bronx,” he detailed.

And in the other corner is the Hip-Hop Hall Of Fame Museum. Set for a 125th Street Harlem location this facility is set to break ground in 2018. The site will not only feature their gallery but also a hotel and retail shops. It is estimated to be unveiled in late 2020 or early 2021. Founder J.T. Thompson is confident about their position and progress.

“Let’s be honest, there’s only gonna be one Hip-Hop museum in the whole world and you’re talking to them now” he explained in a interview with DNA. He congratulated his Bronx project peers but clarified he will be first to open.

“They say they’re the first but they don’t even own the development project over there. The Hip-Hop Hall of Fame wanted to be in control of its own destiny. And that’s what Hip-Hop is all about. Hip-hop is about socio-economic empowerment.”

While the two organizations differ on which exhibit will be more credible they are in agreement that there is more than enough room for more than one museum to celebrate the culture.

DJ pioneer Grand Wizard Theodore welcomes the friendly competition. “As long as people know that this museum is gonna be the first hip-hop museum ever and if you want to really know about hip-hop, this is the museum that you’re gonna have to come to. Period.”

Kim Kardashian Komplains About Ultimate First World Problem

Can someone please break out the violins?

Kim Kardashian is in need of all your sympathy and attention.

In a clip from this Sunday's all-new episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians, the reality star is hanging out in Mexico with sister Kourtney and some friends.“Oh my God, someone got us walking on the beach,” Kim’s assistant, Stephanie Sheppard, tells her while they’re laid out in their bikinis.

She's rocking a purple bikini and seemingly doesn't have a care in the world.

BUT THEN…

… Kim’s assistant, Stephanie Sheppard, breaks some awful news to her boss.

“Oh my God, someone got us walking on the beach,” Sheppard says, referring to a photo she's looking at online that was recently snapped by a paparazzo.

"Oh my God," Kim echoes in shock and fear.'

Don't panic, Larsa Pippen basically says, asking of the viral photos: "Are they good?"

"No!" Kardashian shoots back, clearly panicked.

The mother of two (with another on the way!) then really loses it, perturbed over the angle of the photographs and how they are unedited in every way.

“F-ck! Like, I don’t get it!” she says. “Like, I literally don’t look like this!”

Not literally, of course. These are Kim Kardashian photos, after all.

“I’m already having this anxiety attack over security, and I’m already just on high alert and now paparazzi’s found us," Kim later says, reference how she's on edge after being the victim of an armed robbery last October and adding:

"I’m doing all the steps to try to be as private and discreet as possible and then you take pictures.”

That's a fair complaint.

But shouldn't the armed robbery have given her some perspective? Made her realize there are bigger issues out there than a few unflattering pictures?

“If they’re not perfect, people just body shame and criticize you. For people just to think that’s OK is so frustrating," she adds.

Watch how Kardashian then storms into the house and what she says she has to do in response to the incident now:
