Debut Season Of “Doom Patrol” On The DC Universe Streaming Platform (Trailer)

Cyborg’s in there on the team, too. Cool!

New episode every Friday. Already started on February 15th.

DOOM PATROL reimagines one of DC’s most beloved groups of Super Heroes: Robotman aka Cliff Steele (BRENDAN FRASER), Negative Man aka Larry Trainor (MATT BOMER), Elasti-Woman aka Rita Farr (APRIL BOWLBY) and Crazy Jane (DIANE GUERRERO), led by modern-day mad scientist Niles Caulder aka The Chief (TIMOTHY DALTON). Each member of the Doom Patrol suffered a horrible accident that gave them superhuman abilities, but also left them scarred and disfigured. Traumatized and downtrodden, the team found their purpose through The Chief, coming together to investigate the weirdest phenomena in existence. Following the mysterious disappearance of The Chief these reluctant heroes will find themselves in a place they never expected to be, called to action by none other than Cyborg (JOIVAN WADE), who comes to them with a mission hard to refuse. Part support group, part Super Hero team, the Doom Patrol is a band of superpowered freaks who fight for a world that wants nothing to do with them.

I’m catching up on this this weekend. I promise you. Looks like the storylines could go really far out there given this trailer!

TK Kirkland Speaks On Tensions Between Terry Crews & DL Hughley (Video)

Wow. The mentor and O.G. puts it down! Admittedly, I fell for Vlad’s clickbait title tactic in starting to watch this, but TK spoke some realness here.

In this clip, TK Kirkland speaks on the recent debate between his friends Terry Crews and DL Hughley, of which he believes that they both should be entitled to their own opinions. For that reason, he wishes they would just agree to disagree, while pointing out the irony that Crews threatened to slap Hughley yet not the man who abused him. Later on, he also questions why Crews felt the need to wear high boots and a purse to the Grammy awards, while both Kirkland and Vlad wonder if the actor’s crusade against “toxic masculinity’ is for a different reason altogether.

Politics: Hasan Minhaj On The Student Loan Debt Crisis (Video)

Yooo! There’s a game show to pay off student loans?? I need, like REALLY need to go out for that… and WIN! Mr. President, student loan debt is REAL national emergency (eff that wall thing). Hasan speaks on it.

With Americans’ student debt now over $1.5 trillion, Hasan looks at how the federal government turned the Department of Education into the largest bank in America in terms of loans, and examines the department’s relationship with loan servicers. These private financial companies have benefitted from Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos’ hands-off regulation that has made it easy for students to become trapped in debt.

Mob James Speaks On Suge Knight, 2Pac, Death Row, Mob Piru, And Brother’s Murder (Video)

Wow. Mob James was there for it all and therefore has the pedigree to speak on all he is covering with Vlad. Full interview embedded above.

In this full interview, Mob James recounts his experience at Death Row Records, which involves eye-witness accounts of many of the legendary stories revolving around 2Pac and Suge Knight. Mob James recalls there being a penitentiary mindset at the record company, where employees were essentially afraid to come to work. Furthermore, he states that Suge Knight was ultimately loyal to nobody but himself, while later suggesting that 2Pac died by involving himself in something that he had nothing to do with.

The Continuing Rise In Brazilian Butt Lifts & The Pressure To Be Curvy (Video)

Hmm. Did not know that Oprah brought this trend to light way back when it started. SUre wish the ladies did not feel like they need to risk their health and lives to get those bumps and humps we like. Please find those who love you just as you are ladies and rock with them. We cannot appreciate anything about that ‘new’ body if you are gone. Don’t give in to the pressure.

That said, I know it cannot be easy to live in a world where there is such social pressure to do what others (stars especially) already do to be more appealing. Watch this discussion on it whether you are thinking of doing something to your body or not, or know someone who might. Understanding is key.

In today’s social media society, Black women are faced with the pressure to be curvy. With the rise of the Kardashian Klan and the affordability of a Brazilian butt lift, the panel comes together to discuss the recent surge in plastic surgery amongst Black women. Can you go under the knife and still love yourself?

Michael Jai White Speaks On Being Addicted To The Streets And Having Violent Thoughts (Video)

Wow. Never really thought of Michael Jai White coming from the streets like that. Sure he has an edge that comes through in his acting, but according to what he is telling Vlad it is coming from a real gangsta-influenced background. He just went the other way in his life.

In this clip, Michael Jai White detailed his tough upbringing and the time he spent in the streets. Michael said that he loved fighting growing up and was addicted to the street life. He revealed that he’d been in 12 shootouts over the course of his life and explained how he ended up taking guns from adversaries after beating them up.
– DJ Vlad

And dude loved to fight. So much so he would rather be in a gang fight than hook up with the finest Honey in town! His words. Watch the clip.

(At least he gets to do both as ‘Black Dynamite.’ Ha!)
