Will Smith, Cardi B To Appear On David Letterman’s Netflix Show + Queen Latifah’s ‘Equalizer’ Renewed For Seasons 3 & 4!

David Letterman has tapped Will Smith and Cardi B as his next guests to appear on his hit Netflix show. Also, Queen Latifah’s show “Equalizer” has been renewed for two additional seasons. Woot! More inside…

There’s much to discuss, especially for Will Smith and Cardi B. They’ll have a chance to let it all out in a candid discussion with David Letterman for a new season of his hit Netflix series, “My Next Guest Needs No Introduction with David Letterman.”

The fourth season of the show will kick off on Friday, May 20th on Netflix and it includes candid discussions with Hollywood titan Will Smith and rap queen Cardi B.

Will this be the first time the Bad Boys star talks about the infamous Oscars slap? No. All of the episodes were filmed prior to March 2022, so Will’s episode was filmed before the infamous slap.

Last month, Will was seen for the first time since the Oscars slap in Mumbai, India. As you know, Will apologized several times and then resigned from the Academy after he walked on stage during the Academy Awards and slapped Chris Rock after he made a “G.I. Jane” joke about his wife Jada Pinkett-Smith’s bald head.

Later, the Academy banned the 53-year-old actor from the Oscars gala and other Academy events for 10 years. Since then, Chris Rock has been on a comedy tour where he shared he’s not talking about the slap until he gets paid. 

It’s reported Will has been going to therapy post-Oscars.

As for Cardi…

As far as drama, the “UP” rapper was recently scored a victory in court involving the defamation lawsuit she filed against YouTuber Tasha K for slandering her name. A judge awarded Cardi $4 million in damages for defamation, invasion of privacy and intentional infliction of emotional distress. Tasha K filed an appeal, which she promised to do after the ruling, in an effort to have the judgement overturned. We wonder what she has to say about it all. 

There’s much to discuss.

Other guests joining Letterman include Kevin Durant, Billie Eilish, Ryan Reynolds and Julia Louis-Dreyfus.

Also coming to television…

TV buffs are LOVING Queen Latifah in “The Equalizer.” So much so, CBS has renewed the drama for TWO more seasons, which will take the series through its fourth year in 2023-24. Queen Latifah stars in the show – which is an update of the 80s CBS drama with the same title – and is an executive producer.

“The Equalizer continues to pack a powerful punch on Sunday nights, and we’re thrilled to have it back for two more seasons,” said Thom Sherman, senior executive vp programming at CBS Entertainment.

 

“The success of The Equalizer is due to the sum of its parts — an outstanding cast led by the superb Queen Latifah, plus the exceptional creative team that has continued to evolve their storytelling with a compelling mix of everyday justice, family dynamics and real-world issues that connect and resonate with audiences.”

 

 

Queen is killing her role too! Congrats.

MET GALA AFTERMATH: Cardi B Says She’s A ‘Prisoner Of Fame’ After Joke About Doing Drugs Caused Faux Beef With Billie Eilish

Cardi B is sick and tired of fame! She’s sounding off about the backlash she has been receiving after she made a joke about “doing drugs” during Playboy’s Met Gala afterparty. Billie Eilish was caught on camera saying “she’s weird,” which started speculations that she was shading Cardi.

 

Both Cardi & Billie set the record straight in the DMs. Everything inside….

 

Cardi B sets the record straight after social media seemingly manufactured drama between herself and Billie Eilish following the biggest night in fashion.

Folks were in an uproar after a video of Cardi joking about "doing drugs" and Billie Eilish calling her “weird” afterwards started circulating. In the clip, Cardi speaks before the crowd, encouraging people to get drinks and then she jokingly sniffed and placed her finger under her nose, alluding to snorting that white stuff.

“Make sure you got your drinks, make sure y’all do your little [lines]. Whatever the f**k you have to do. We got to turn the **k up. I want everybody dancing!,” she said.

Right after, it cuts to Billie Eilish saying, “she so weird.”

The Grammy winning raptress teamed up with Playboy as publication’s newest Creative Director to host “The Boom Boom After Party” held at the Standard’s Boom Boom Room.

After the clip started circulating, the “Be Careful” rapper hopped on Twitter where she posted and then deleted what some fans believe was a subliminal aimed at the 20-year-old pop star. Check it out below:

Despite the post, Cardi shut down the rumors that she and Billie have “beef.” The “WAP” raptress hopped on social media to share a screen recording of her conversation with Billie in the DMs. They two artists sent voice notes to one another about the “incident.”

"Oh my God, I was so worried that you were going to see that. I was f*cking calling the people around you weird because everybody was coming up to you, shoving their phones into your ass. And I was like, ‘Just look at her with your eyes!’,” Billie said in the voice memo.

"The internet is trying to divide us. They don’t understand that you’re my baby,” responded Cardi. Listen below:

 

I hate the internet cause one, how do y’all turn one of the most lit parties into drama? Two, Ocean eyes is the song I cater to my daughter. Three,Billie is my fuckin baby.Yesterday, from the met to the party, everything was drama free. Why do yallwanna turn everything into mess? pic.twitter.com/cyph1XbmE2

”I hate the internet cause one, how do y’all turn one of the most lit parties into drama?" Cardi tweeted after the video started circulating. "Two, Ocean eyes is the song I cater to my daughter. Three, Billie is my fuckin baby. Yesterday, from the met to the party, everything was drama free. Why do yallwanna turn everything into mess?"

The 29-year-old mom-of-two went on to explain how frustrated she is with fame, insisting what she said while hosting the party was a JOKE.

“Fame has turned me into a prisoner,” she said in an IG Live. ”I really feel like I’m a prisoner to fame. I’m not myself anymore."

“I make one joke as a hostess because I am hosting a party and it gets twisted. Why can’t every celebrity joke around and say slick s**t?” she told her followers, admitting she’s “scared” to make any wrong moves. “I’m tired. I can’t be myself anymore,” she continued. “Anything that will go on social media is always bad. If I could click my f**king feet three times and go back to f**king 2013 when I was just a regular b*tch, dancing and making money every single night, that is where I want to be. That’s when I was me.”

In her eyes, God has "cursed" her with fame and she’s over it. She told her fans not to wish to be famous – just wish to be rich.

Take a listen to a clip from the Live below:

The price of fame.

Speaking of the afterparty, Wendy Williams – who recently said she’s in the process of getting her show back – was reportedly in the mix. Hairstylist Derick Monroe shared a photo of the daytime talk show host after he got her all dolled up before she hit the NYC streets:

Kanye West Reportedly Pulls Out Of Headlining Coachella Performance, Travis Scott Out As Well

No surprise here. Kanye West has pulled out of his headlining Coachella performance where Travis Scott was set to make a guest appearance. Deets on his exit and more inside….

Looks like we’ll be seeing less of Kanye West after all the drama he brought to kick off 2022.

The Grammy winning rapper has pulled out of his headlining performance at the 2022 Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival amid reports that he’s “going away.” Now, festival organizers are scrambling to replace the headliner ahead of the Coachella festivities, which will kick off April 15th.

Sources in Ye’s camp tell TMZ that the Chi-town rapper decided to pull the plug on his performance just two weeks before the two-weekend long event in Indio, CA. Ye had planned to have Travis Scott as a special guest. Now that he’s out, so is Travis. Previously, Ye threatened to pull out of Coachella if Billie Eilish didn’t apologize for shading Travis over the Astroworld Tragedy. As far as we know, she hasn’t issued an apology.

The SICKO MODE rapper was originally scheduled to headline Coachella in 2020, but it was canceled due to COVID. Organizers then booked him for 2022, but they pulled his performance following his deadly Astroworld Festival on November 5, 2021. A few weeks before the 2022 Grammys, producers pulled Ye’s performance due to his "concerning online behavior."

Sans his presence, the DONDA rapper won two Grammys – Best Rap Song for “Jail,” ft. Jay-Z, and Best Melodic Rap Performance for “Hurricane,” ft. Lil Baby and The Weeknd. Ye and Hov are now tied for the most wins for a Hip Hop artist ever, with a total of 24 Grammys each.

Before the Grammys rolled around, sources told Page Six that Ye allegedly told his ex-wife Kim Kardashian that he was “going away to get help” and would not be “making any public appearances or inflammatory social media statements.”

The “going away” reports comes on the heels of Ye and Kim joining forces to co-parent at one of Saint’s soccer games recently.

WHAT HAPPENS IN VEGAS: A LOOK AT YBF CELEBS AT THE 2022 GRAMMYS!

Beyoncé MAKES GRAMMYS HISTORY As The Most Awarded Female Artist!

If you didn’t call her the Queen before, you best do it from now on.  Beyoncé aka Mrs. Carter aka Sasha Fierce aka Bey is officially the most awarded woman in GRAMMY history.  Watch her epic reaction to surpassing the record inside!

It’s a weird night for the Grammy’s as the in-person award show (after last year’s virtual show) is extremely scaled down and outdoors with just a handful of people n the audience.  But it’s a magical one too as history has been made.

Beyonce tied the record for the most Grammy Awards held by a female artist, Alison Krause with 27, with her Best Rap Song win for "Savage (Remix)" with Megan Thee Stallion.  And just a few minutes later, her legendary status became even bigger when Bey officially surpassed it with her Best R&B Performance win for "Black Parade".  She’s currently sitting at 28, with a potential 29th win as she competes against herself for Record of the Year with "Savage (Remix)" and "Black Parade".  (UPDATE: Record of the Year went to Billie Eilish.)

 

She’s now the most awarded female in Grammy history, and the most awarded vocalist male or female.

Watch her emotional reaction to finding out the news about her tying the record, then beating it, below:

 

 

Her now 28 Grammys include 3 awards as part of Destiny’s Child and one award as part of The Carters.  It’s all been three decades in the making, and we LOVE to see it. Beyond deserved.

The person with the most Grammy Awards is the late conductor Georg Solti with 31, and she currently ties Quincy Jones at 28.  It’s definitely within reach to become the most awarded person period in Grammy History.

IT'S 'GRAMMY TIME': CHECK OUT YBF CELEBS RED CARPET LOOKS!

Billie Eilish – you don’t get me high anymore Lyrics

[Verse 1: Billie Eilish, Billie Eilish & FINNEAS]
I don’t like stayin’ at home
When the moon is bleeding red
Woke up stoned in the backseat
From a dream where my teeth fell out of my head
Cut it up, cut it up, yeah
Everybody’s on something here
My godsend chemical best friend
Skeleton whispering in my ear

[Pre-Chorus: Billie Eilish & FINNEAS]
Walk with me to the end
Stare with me into the abyss
Do you feel like letting go?
I wonder how far down it is

[Chorus: Billie Eilish, Billie Eilish & FINNEAS]
Nothing is fun
Not like before
You don’t get me high anymore
Used to take one
Now it takes four
You don’t get me high anymore

[Verse 2, Billie Eilish, Billie Eilish & FINNEAS]]
Runnin’ through emergency rooms
Spinning wheels and ceiling fans
My handshake, cellophane, landscape
Mannequin fakin’ it the best that I can
Cadillac, Cadillac red
No hands on the steering wheel
I’m crashing this save-a-ho puppet show
UFO obliterate the way I feel

[Pre-Chorus: Billie Eilish & FINNEAS]
Walk with me to the end
Stare with me into the abyss
Do you feel like letting go?
I wonder how far down it is

[Chorus: Billie Eilish & FINNEAS, Billie Eilish]
Nothing is fun
Not like before
You don’t get me high anymore
Used to take one
Now it takes four
You don’t get me high anymore
You don’t get me high anymore
You don’t get me high anymore

Billie Eilish – ​​come out and play Lyrics

[Intro]
Hmm, hmm

[Verse]
Wake up and smell the coffee
Is your cup half full or empty?
When we talk, you say it softly
But I love it when you’re awfully quiet, quiet

[Pre-Chorus]
You see a piece of paper
Could be a little greater
Show me what you could make her
You’ll never know until you try it
You don’t have to keep it quiet

[Chorus]
And I know it makes you nervous
But I promise you, it’s worth it
To show ’em everything you kept inside
Don’t hide, don’t hide
Too shy to say, but I hope you stay
Don’t hide away
Come out and play

[Bridge]
Look up, out of your window
See snow, won’t let it in though
Leave home, feel the wind blow
‘Cause it’s colder here inside in silence
You don’t have to keep it quiet

[Chorus]
Yeah, I know it makes you nervous
But I promise you, it’s worth it
To show ’em everything you kept inside
Don’t hide, don’t hide
Too shy to say but I hope you stay
Don’t hide away
Come out and play

Billie Eilish – ​you should see me in a crown Lyrics

[Verse 1]
Bite my tongue, bide my time
Wearing a warning sign
Wait ’til the world is mine
Visions I vandalize
Cold in my kingdom size
Fell for these ocean eyes

[Chorus]
You should see me in a crown
I’m gonna run this nothing town
Watch me make ’em bow
One by one by one
One by one by
You should see me in a crown
Your silence is my favorite sound
Watch me make ’em bow
One by one by one
One by one by one

[Verse 2]
Count my cards, watch them fall
Blood on a marble wall
I like the way they all
Scream
Tell me which one is worse
Living or dying first
Sleeping inside a hearse
I don’t dream

You say
Come over baby
I think you’re pretty
I’m okay
I’m not your baby
If you think I’m pretty

[Chorus]
You should see me in a crown
I’m gonna run this nothing town
Watch me make ’em bow
One by one by one
One by one by
You should see me in a crown
Your silence is my favorite sound
Watch me make ’em bow
One by one by one
One by one by one

[Chorus]
Crown
I’m gonna run this nothing town
Watch me make ’em bow
One by one by one
One by one by
You should see me in a crown
Your silence is my favorite sound
Watch me make ’em bow
One by one by one
One by one by one

Billie Eilish – ​l i s t e n Lyrics

[Verse 1]
Take me to the rooftop
I wanna see the world when I stop breathing
Turning blue
Tell me love is endless
Don’t be so pretentious
Leave me like you do

[Pre-Chorus]
If you need me
You wanna see me
You better hurry
‘Cause I’m leaving soon

[Chorus]
Sorry can’t save me now
Sorry I don’t know how
Sorry there’s no way out
But down

[Verse 2]
Taste me
These salty tears on my cheeks
That’s what a year long headache
Does to you
I’m not okay I feel so scattered
Don’t say I’m all that matters
Leave me, deja vu

[Pre-Chorus]
If you need me
You wanna see me
You better hurry
‘Cause I’m leaving soon

[Chorus]
Sorry can’t save me now
Sorry I don’t know how
Sorry there’s no way out
But down
Down

Billie Eilish – when the party’s over Lyrics

[Verse 1]
Don’t you know I’m no good for you?
I’ve learned to lose, you can’t afford to
Tore my shirts to stop you bleeding
But nothing ever stops you leaving

[Chorus]
Quiet when I’m coming home, I’m on my own
I could lie and say I like it like that, like it like that
I could lie and say I like it like that, like it like that

[Verse 2]
Don’t you know too much already?
I’ll only hurt you if you let me
Call me friend, but keep me closer
But call me when the party’s over

[Chorus]
Quiet when I’m coming home, I’m on my own
I could lie and say I like it like that, like it like that
I could lie and say I like it like that, like it like that

[Verse 3 / Outro]
But nothing is better, sometimes
Once we have said our goodbye
Let’s let it go
Let me let you go
