"For the longest time, I didn’t understand why I felt so sick.

Now I know why," the singer shared with her followers.

Drake Reacts To Being Called A Culture Vulture

Posted by Admin on April 15, 2019 at 1:40 PM Comments comments (0)

You either love Drake or you hate Drake. That's the best way to sum up the OVO artist's status in the music industry. For those who love him, they will undoubtedly go up against any critic with a laundry list of reasons why he is the greatest. Likewise, for those who don't like him, they will return with an equally long list about why he's a "culture vulture." While Drizzy doesn't always waste his time listening to what critics have to say, he told Tiffany Calvar of BBC's "1Xtra Rap Show" on Saturday (April 13) that he is a bit disheartened by the culture vulture label.

"I hate that people think that, like, me being into music from these kids who are trying to make it and trying to build a name for themselves, it's like, 'Oh, that's some culture vulture.' What does that even mean?" Drake said of the label. "I don't understand what that means. Would you rather me not acknowledge anything or support? That's some real confused hater sh*t. It is what it is. I see it a lot. I'll never understand how supporting someone's song or going a step further and giving someone a song, linking up, I'll never understand how that's not viewed as something admirable."

'Guava Island' First Look: Childish Gambino's Mystery Project With Rihanna Is Unveiled

Posted by Admin on April 12, 2019 at 1:25 PM Comments comments (0)

When Donald Glover and the director Hiro Murai collaborate on a new project, expectations are naturally sky high.

After all, Murai has directed many of the key episodes of Glover’s Emmy-winning series, “Atlanta,” as well as the music video for “This Is America,” the Grammy-winning song Glover recorded as his musical alter ego, Childish Gambino.

But with their first feature-length effort, “Guava Island,” you had the sense that Glover and Murai were trying to play down those expectations. The film, which comes in at a brisk 54 minutes, was shot in Cuba last year and kept under wraps until this week. That isn’t easy to do when your star is so famous and his love interest is played by Rihanna.

And though any film festival in the world would have coveted Murai’s first feature, “Guava Island” instead debuted Thursday night at the Coachella campgrounds in California, where Glover will headline the site’s music festival as Childish Gambino. Shortly after his set concludes on Friday night, the film is to begin streaming on Amazon, starting Saturday at 12:01 a.m. Pacific Daylight Time.

So what is this mystery project about? “Guava Island” is a music-driven fable that follows Deni (Glover), a happy-go-lucky singer who believes that music has the power to unite the squabbling citizens of his tiny island. He promises his girlfriend, Kofi (Rihanna), that he can write a song as beautiful as she is, though Kofi is skeptical. “No song is that beautiful,” she boasts.
