Blessed, Crush, and Funny: Ashanti Becomes The Latest Black Female Celebrity To Share Her #MeToo Stories Of Sexual Harassment: "Once l Said 'No,' All Of A Sudden The Track Became $45k" @balleralert Ashanti Becomes The Latest Black Female Celebrity To Share Her MeToo Stories Of Sexual Harassment – “Once I Said ‘No,’ All Of A Sudden The Track Became $45k” – blogged by @MsJennyb ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ As allegations of sexual misconduct and assault continue to spread throughout Hollywood, more women and men, alike, are coming forward to share their experiences. In fact, Ashanti has become the most recent black female celebrity to share her own MeToo story. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The ‘Foolish’ singer spilled the details in an interview on SiriusXM’s “Conversation with Maria Menounos,” as she revealed that she was sexually harassed by a producer, who refused to release her music without an exchange of sexual favors. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “I’ve come across a situation where there was a certain producer that, you know, he had his little crush or whatever, but it wasn’t anything new, you know,” Ashanti said. “And once I said ‘no,’ all of a sudden the track became $45k.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “It’s funny because he said something like, ‘Well just take a shower with me and let me do this,” she continued, as she explained the producer apologized when one of her “big brothers” stepped in. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “The way that apology came in, I actually got three records for free,” Ashanti said. “And I got two of them mixed and mastered for free also.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ However, according to the songstress, not everyone is blessed to have people that look out for them and protect them, when need be. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “I’m blessed because I have that,” she said, as she reflected on her experience. “It happens it does and it’s unfortunate.”

College, Destiny, and Drake: Drake Has A Heart of Gold: Donates Thousands Of Dollars to People in Need @balleralert Drake Has A Heart of Gold: Donates Thousands Of Dollars to People in Need- Blogged by @tktrinidad ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The “6 God” Drake has been very busy lately. While filming his latest music video, “God's Plan” in Miami, he went on a good samaritan giveaway spree. First, he gave a check to a women’s homeless shelter for $50,000, according to CapitalXtra. Then the Canadian artist gave $50,000 to 20-year-old Destiny James, a first-generation college student, raised by a single parent in a low-income area. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ James wrote on Instagram, “I was contacted this weekend about doing a video speaking about where I come from, things I’ve been through, and why it is so important for scholarship donors to continue to donate. This was the surprise the whole time. Drake told me that he has read great things about me and appreciates how hard I’ve worked through so many trials and decided to give me $50K for my tuition. @champagnepapi THANK YOU SO MUCH!!. You don’t understand what this means to me! I would’ve never imagined this happening to me. I’m just a girl from Denmark, SC that wants to MAKE IT and be somebody and for you to see my hard work means the world. Thank you so much. God, I thank you. You are so great and amazing! Thank you for blessing me when I thought my hard work was going unnoticed.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The Champagnepapi wasn't done yet though. He also gave $25,000 to the Miami area high school, where he filmed part of his video and a collection of OVO-designed school uniforms to Miami Senior High School. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Later on, he even paid for everyone’s groceries at Sabor Tropical Supermarket, totaling to about $50,000 in food. Customer Guille Deza told E! News, “No one knew he was coming at all, we just came to do groceries. Cameras were being set up so we were all wondering what was to happen.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ According to Deza, the rumor is that the giveaways will be part of the “God’s Plan” video.

Community, Drugs, and Memes: San Francisco Planning to Wipe Out and Reduce Thousands of Marijuana-Related Cases @balleralert ICE LIO NO San Francisco Planning to Wipe Out and Reduce Thousands of Marijuana-Related Cases - blogged by: @ashleytearra ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ According to the San Francisco District Attorney’s Office, after California’s latest weed legalization laws, the city’s prosecutors are aiming to eradicate or reduce thousands of marijuana-related cases that date back as far as 1975. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Reportedly, Proposition 64 will be applied to nearly 5,000 felony convictions and over 3,000 misdemeanors. While majority of the felonies for cannabis usage will be reviewed, recalled, and prepped for resentencing, the misdemeanors will be dismissed, said District Attorney George Gascón. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Proposition 64-also known as the Adult Use of Marijuana act, legalized the recreational use of marijuana in the state of California, and it also permitted those convicted of associated charges to petition the courts to throw out or reduce their penalties. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ However, due to the lengthy process of filing a petition, Gascón says that they are currently executing a plan to wipe out and decrease a mass of cases that haven’t even been petitioned. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ "What we want to make sure is… that people who were really the victims of the war on drugs-in general terms, and are people who are trying to get their lives in the right direction, that they get relief they deserve," Gascón expressed. "We have damaged a lot of people in our community."
