Justin Timberlake Slammed For Tweet Intended To Praise Jesse Williams' BET Speech

Posted on Mon Jun 27th, 2016 8:10am PDT       By X17 Staff


Everyone needs to calm down and leave JT alone!

Justin Timberlake got major backlash after tweeting in support of Jesse Williams' BET awards acceptance speech last night, and it seems like people are being hyper sensitive.

"This invention called whiteness uses and abuses us. Burying black people out of sight and out of mind while extracting our culture, our dollars, our entertainment like oil — black gold, ghettoizing and demeaning our creations then stealing them, gentrifying our genius and then trying us on like costumes before discarding our bodies like rinds of strange fruit," Williams highlighted in his Black Lives Matter speech.

"@iJesseWilliams tho...#Inspired #BET2016," Timberlake wrote on Twitter following the Grey's Anatomy star's inspiring words, and fans were quick to slam the "Can't Stop The Feeling" crooner for being one of the people appropriating black culture that Williams was referring to.

"Oh, you sweet soul. The more you realize that we are the same, the more we can have a conversation," he tweeted as a response to the criticism, but then felt it necessary to add even more explanation when the comments turned increasingly nasty. "I feel misunderstood. I responded to a specific tweet that wasn’t meant to be a general response. I shouldn’t have responded anyway..." he added.

"I forget this forum sometimes...I was truly inspired by @iJesseWilliams speech because I really do feel that we are all one... A human race. I apologize to anyone that felt I was out of turn. I have nothing but LOVE FOR YOU AND ALL OF US. --JT," he concluded.

Ay ya yay!

 

Judge To Hold Hearing Today Regarding Prince's $300 Million Estate

Posted on Mon Jun 27th, 2016 7:00am PDT       By X17 Staff


A Minnesota judge is holding a hearing today to help move forward with divvying up Prince’s estate, which is worth nearly $300 million.

Bremer Trust has been managing Prince’s estate until the family can come to a legal agreement over how things will be divided. Prince has one sister, Tyka Nelson, and several half-siblings: John Nelson, Norrine Nelson, Sharon Nelson, Alfred Jackson and Omarr Baker.

Per Minnesota law, Prince's children and parents would be the first family members entitled to his estate, but since he never had kids and his parents are deceased, his siblings would be next in line.

Prince was pronounced dead after being found unresponsive in an elevator at his Paisley Park home in Chanhassen, Minnesota at the age of 57. Earlier this month it was reported that the legendary singer died of an opioid overdose, though the official results of his autopsy have yet to be made public.

Tyga Picks Up Fast Food For Lady Love Kylie Jenner

When bae takes a break from a snuggle sesh to get you burgers, you know it's serious!

On Sunday Tyga cruised around Los Angeles in girlfriend Kylie Jenner's blue Ferrari, and he picked up all kinds of goodies at In 'N Out. We're guessing he was reporting back to Kylie immediately after this -- I mean, why else would he be taking her car?

After taking a break for about a month, Kylie and Tyga are definitely back on, though we're not sure how long it will last this time around. On Thursday night, Tyga posted (and then deleted) an Instagram snapshot of Kylie in a super sexy outfit and wrote, "They always come back." We're guessing Kylizzle demanded that her douchebeau take down the snapshot -- and seeing as he's going on food runs for her, it seems like he's doing everything she wants. For now...

Kourtney Kardashian, Scott Disick And The Kids Join Kimye At The Movies

Posted on Sun Jun 26th, 2016 11:40am PDT       By X17 Staff


Kourtney Kardashian and Scott Disick took their oldest kids, Mason and Penelope, to the movies on Saturday, and they met up with mom Kris Jenner, Kimye and Nori to catch a matinee screening of Finding Dory. Fun!

Kourtney carried Penelope and Scott held hands with Mason, and later on the family headed home and ordered sushi for dinner. Scott posted a photo of Kourtney in a bathrobe munching away and wrote, "Look like a panda," poking fun at her face mask. Um, so was Scott spending the night? And what's the status of their relationship? We know they split almost exactly a year ago, but they seem to be spending more and more time together lately -- and it seems like more than just amicable family time with the kids.

"There is no hope for a reconciliation," an insider told Radar. "They will not ever get back together. Neither one of them want that anymore. They are both perfectly happy co-parenting and being best friends." OK then!

Look like a panda

Kendall Jenner And A$AP Rocky Have A Hot Dinner Date In Paris

Posted on Sun Jun 26th, 2016 10:25am PDT       By X17 Staff



Kendall Jenner and A$AP Rocky went on a stroll in Paris on Friday night, and after going on a dinner date at L’Avenue restaurant, the duo partied it up at the Cartel Club, where they danced the night away. Um, what happened to Kendall and NBA star Jordan Clarkson!? Just last week they stepped out at 1 Oak nightclub in Hollywood, but it seems like that's already over! Or maybe it will be once he sees these pics? It certainly seems like Kenny is playing the field ... and we love it!

Kendall is currently in Paris for Fashion Week, and a number of fans snapped photos of the supermodel and the rapper together and posted them on social media. While she's been friends with Rocky for several months, this seems like a little more than a casual evening out. I mean, look at how dolled up she is!

Khloe Kardashian Flaunts Her Juicy Booty In A Pair Of Spandex

Posted on Sun Jun 26th, 2016 9:45am PDT       By X17 Staff


Khloe Kardashian stopped by Sephora in Calabasas over the weekend, and the reality star showed off her famous curves in a pair of black spandex. When she turned around to climb into her SUV, a handful of bystanders couldn't help but gawk -- and we think we know just what they were staring at!

Khloe revealed earlier this spring that she lost nearly 40 pounds over the last few years, and it was her marital drama with estranged husband Lamar Odom that pushed her to get her ass in gear and hit the gym. Referencing the "dark and toxic" time with Lamar, Khloe told Harper's Bazaar, "At the time, my family didn't know what I was going through. It was the biggest secret I've kept. I just needed a place to go."

"I definitely think the fashion industry, and people in general, look at me more now that I've lost weight," she added. "Even on shoots, I would never have options for clothing. There would always be this attention on Kourtney and Kim, but I was too much work for [stylists] or they had nothing in my size. I wasn't even that crazy big!"

Well, her derriere was crazy big -- and it still is!

Posted on Sun Jun 26th, 2016 9:18am PDT       By X17 Staff


Gigi Hadid landed at Los Angeles International Airport on Saturday night, and the blonde supermodel worked the sidewalk like a catwalk as she made her way to her chauffeured car. We couldn't help but notice the large writing on the back of her satin bomber jacket -- turns out that's boyfriend Zayn Malik's name in Arabic!

The two broke up for what seemed like a few days last month, but they quickly got back together, and they've been stronger than ever since then. After Zayn cancelled his appearance at the Capital Summertime Ball in the U.K., Gigi tweeted a message of support to her man, and she's been by his side ever since.

"Z - I’ve seen the battles you go through and the way you fight to get to a place that allows you to get up there for your fans," she wrote. "Your bravery in those times makes me proud, but your honesty last night proved what you’re all about, being real. Human recognizes human. You made the best of the situation and have given your fans an opportunity to understand you better as a performer. Those who can find compassion now are the ones that deserve to watch you continue to grow. We are all here to support you and make each experience easier. Your talent and good heart will never lead you wrong. Love you and so proud of you always :) xG."
