DL Hughley Give Perspective To The Louis CK Controversy & The ‘Protective’ Role Of His Manager (Video)

I usually do when DL gives social commentary, but I really leaned in on this one. A comedian speaking on another comedian going through a unique situation. Can expect some real talk. This is DL Hughley’s take on Louis CK’s taking liberties with the ladies.

Actually, this seems more in defense of their shared manager. Watch.

Cover Story: Watch The Cyntoia Brown Documentary And Learn About How Her Story Has Gone Viral (Video)

Have you heard, or been following, the #FreeCyntoiaBrown movement? Cyntoia Brown has already been in prison for well over a decade, convicted of murder as a teen. The story has recently resurfaced and gone viral. Gotten the attention of celebs like Rihanna, and Kim Kardashian (see what she tweeted after the jump) has said she has reached out to her lawyers to see what she could do to help.

Embedded above is a documentary on Cyntoia. Watch. Watch NOW. They are snatching copies of the documentary offline with the quickness (took digging to find this one). At least the PBS Independent Lens trailer (after the jump) should remain stable, since it has been since 2011. Matter of fact, eff that: going in after the jump and posting all the clips PBS left up. Maybe PBS will re-release the documentary itself in full. This story should be known, told and retold. Tragedy begets more tragedy. You (me, we). Must. LEARN!

Also, you can also become better versed in the various details of the case and campaign to get Cyntoia Brown freed via the links below.

(More backstory and catch-up content after the jump, including clips from Roland S. Martin on TV One and Big Tigger on Atlanta’s V-103 radio.)

The Cast Of Netflix’s “She’s Gotta Have It” Speak On Sex-Positivity, Aspects Of Relationships And Spike Lee (Video)

Interesting talk. VERRRRY interesting. Actually started out thinking that the folks on here would downplay the sexual aspects of this Netflix series based on the Spike Lee joint. And while they don’t get pornographic, the convo is ‘graphic’ enough to keep you engaged to learn about how this series addresses poly-amorous relationships, pan-sexuality, love & relationships, friendships, characters & the canon (the characters, the original film & director, etc.)

Def gotta check this out!

(Yoooo, there was a comment on the Tube on this that was like, “Pan-sexual: if she’s good with a pan, then we can get sexual.” Bwaaahahaaa!)

Get a sandwich and a beverage. Come back. Press play. Stay and pay attention until it stops. Then play it again and take notes. The ‘Blueprint’ is in there! There is soooo much game being laid out plain by Scooter Braun as he tells his story in this sitdown for Complex.

Scooter Braun is a visionary for the self-made, social media age. After catching the eye of Jermaine Dupri as the hottest young party promoter in Atlanta, Braun signed and diligently broke Asher Roth and Justin Bieber. He went on to manage a bevy of global pop stars to expand his company into other facets of entertainment and to weather some very public storms, all while gathering a following as big as some of his acts.

Terry Crews Speaks On Being Sexually Assaulted Early In His Career: “I Felt Like I Could Punch A Hole In His Head” (Video)

Oh my damn! Dude did ‘Damon’ wrong! Talk about art imitating life (re: bathroom scene between ‘Money Mike’ aka Katt Williams and ‘Damon’ aka Terry Crews). See, if he’d have whupped the sh!t out his azz when this groper tried him, Terry might not have had a career anywhere near like he’s had. And being the wrong color in the wrong situation, he might have lost his liberty (caught a case) or his life (caught a bullet). And for similar reasons he could not even speak on it as his career progressed.

Good thing he gets to talk about it now. A different look at abuse of power. Now that the story is out, and the suit is filed, maybe some payback in the form of serious greenbacks is coming, too.

IN FRONT OF HIS WIFE!!! Maaaaannnnn…
