Aerosmith is known for many things, but being supporters of Donald Trump is not one of them.
Recently, the groups Leader, Steven Tyler, had his lawyer send a “Cease & Desist” letter to the president for his use of the groups music during his rallies. Tyler fears that people will think that by trump using his music, he is in direct support of the president which is not the case.
This is actually the second time the group has had to have their music removed from Trump. The first time was on his campaign trail when the song “Dream On” was used to pump up the crowd as he entered the stage. The performance rights were revoked as an initial step during that time. However, since that did not deter trump from continuing to use other songs from the band, the “Cease & Desist” was put in motion and delivered.
Tyler, among many other celebrities, has made a hard stance in opposition to the current president. This sends a clear message, and stands out as an American citizen speaking up for their thoughts on what’s right for our nation.

Kehlani assists Cardi B for the video for their collab on Invasion Of Privacy.
In the video, the two artists float above the clouds in telephone booths and Cardi B finds herself tangled up in phone chords, as they attempt to get a call from an old love interest. This is Cardi’s first release since giving birth to her daughter Kulture back in June.
It was confirmed that Cardi will be present at the VMA's tonight, but she will not be performing unfortunately. Rather than performing, she is expected to do some sort of monologue or skit. Either way, it'll be exciting to see the New York artist in action.
Check out Cardi & Kehlani's R&B-infused record below and spread the NOiZE!
Facebook has begun to assign its users a reputation score, predicting their trustworthiness on a scale from zero to 1.
As part of a broader effort to reduce the spread of misinformation, the social media platform has been calculating and assigning reputation scores to users who report content as fake, the company confirmed. Facebook then takes a user’s score into account when the individual flags future stories as false or misleading.
The goal of the system is to account for instances when users report accurate news reports as false just because they disagree with their premise, Facebook product manager Tessa Lyons said. The score is presumably also meant to counteract organized disinformation campaigns that rely on mass reporting of unwanted posts.
Right now, it isn’t clear if the trust score is being used for anything other than reports on news stories, as well as reports on whether another Facebook user has posted something inappropriate or otherwise needing the company’s attention.

Get to know hood princess, Lil Moody, in this exclusive Q & A.
Don't be fooled by her squeaky voice, Lil Moody is a little person with a whole lot of personality. I recently got to chop it up with Lil Moody and pick her brain about a few different things and even got her to give me the inside scoop on her new video, WOP.
Pretty Riot: You’re fairly new to the music scene, what made you get your start as a rapper?
Moody: I used to always play around and freestyle and before my fav passed he told me that I should stop playing take music seriously so when he actually passed I put my pain in my music as therapy because I went through a lot from 2013-2017 that really shaped me as a person.
Pretty Riot: Wow, I’m sorry to hear about your loss, so what would you say is your motivation to keep rapping?
Moody: Thank you. Prayer, my production and creative team, my family and seeing my mom struggle honestly keeps me motivated and wanting better for myself.
Pretty Riot: How did you feel after you completely your first song?
Moody: After my first song Hot Girl? I can’t even lie, I was super nervous, second guessing myself for doing something that everybody else is doing. Until I dropped my song on my birthday, February 6th and it went up! That's when I knew it was on and poppin bitches! I was made for this.
Pretty Riot: Yes, Hot Girl was definitely a hit. You’ve grown since then and It seems as though you’re very comfortable with making music at this point, what do you think sets you apart from other female artists?
Moody: What sets me apart from other female rappers is my squeaky voice and my crazy personality. What you see is what you get and I never cared about what anybody had to say about it! I’m true to myself. Everybody gets the same Moody, no fake shit, no celebrity shit, just me.
Pretty Riot: I had a feeling you would say that your voice makes you stand apart from other artists. That’s the first thing I noticed about you! Did you ever feel like your voice would be a setback? How do you work around that?
Moody: I always thought my squeaky voice would be a setback for me because cause I got teased for it all my life, so I already knew that it would be something that rubbed some people differently than others. I work around it by just having confidence in myself and in my voice, I take pride in sounding like Alvin and the chipmunks!
Pretty Riot: Talk to me about how being a Chicagoan influences your style? Who are some of your major influences?
Moody: Being from Chicago influences me because it shows who I really am and why I am the way I am! love that I’m from the city of Chicago. I’m a hood princess, I love that I been in the hood, despite the gun violence and many friends and family I lost to it! Chicago gave me my no nonsense attitude, made me who I am, this is a city where you have to have thick skin to live here and it really helped build my character for rapping. Some of my major influences are My momma, Trina, MC Lyte, Queen Latifah, Lil Kim, Brandy, Gucci Mane, Mary J. Blige, Lauryn Hill and, Cardi B because her story was real.
Pretty Riot: So, I’m dying to know, what is “Wop” and where did it come from?
Moody: “WOP” is a dance Chicago bitches do. Some say it’s irritating, some hate it, some say it’s for the ratchet bitches! Either way we still be doing our shit WOP! It goes with every song honestly. It’s something to just have fun with though. Me and the gang will hop out anywhere, hop out at redlights, gas stations, parking lots, on anybody block wop wop!
Pretty Riot: How did your single for WOP come about?
Moody: WOP came about with my big bro and producer DJ L shout out to him on bro! We were chilling trying to figure out what the the next beat or song would be. I ended up telling him I wanted to make a WOP song, there was no leaving the studio until I made that song so we got to work, he made the beat from scratch on the spot and I wrote to it as he was making it, we recorded the same day and bailed out> I was determined to get that song made.
Pretty Riot: What was your main goal for the WOP video? How did the idea for the video come about?
Moody: The main goal was to throw a big ass block party, but the weekend prior to the WOP video shoot there were over 75 shootings in Chicago and I knew what came with that, I knew that the need for retaliation from all the blood shed would be real. I decided it would be too hot for block party so I resorted to plan B, having something fun in a closed, secure place, and that's what we did. Would you believe me if I told you that the shoot for WOP was a super hectic day? Things ended up working out thanks to my support system, my momma, my Uncle James, Solo, DJ Keon, GS2, Ron Louis, and my friends and brothers it all came together and we had a LIT ASS TIME!
Pretty Riot: I’m so excited for everyone to see the Wop video, so what’s next from Moody? A project maybe?
Moody: Expect a couple more songs and videos from me before summer is over. I’ll also be dropping my very first EP as well as having a listening party. I would also like to collaborate with other artists as well.
Check out this new lit visual for Lil Moody's new single, WOP.

It’s been a brutal summer for late-night shows, with five of them getting the ax in the last two months. Now TNT hopes to fill the void by ordering a new pilot for a late-night show featuring its Claws star, Niecy Nash.
Naked With Niecy Nash is “a decidedly unique show with a late-night feel” hosted and executive produced by Nash, star of the network’s hit prime-time dramedy series Claws
Sue Murphy (Chelsea Lately, Chelsea) is attached as executive producer and showrunner for the pilot.
Should the project get ordered to series, it would mark the first late-night series in TNT’s history. Nash would also be one of only two female late-night hosts on network TV, with the other being Samantha Bee, who hosts Full Frontal on fellow Turner network TBS.

Simone Biles is making history again. The star gymnast recently competed at the U.S. National Championship for women’s gymnastics on the weekend of Aug. 17, where she won five gold medals. The new accomplishment makes Biles the third female gymnast to sweep the highest medal in all events in the sport’s entire history.
Biles reportedly took first place in the vault, uneven bars, balance beam, floor exercise, and in the all-around. It is the first time a gymnast has swept all gold medals since Dominique Dawes made history in 1994. Before that, Joyce Tanac became “the first” in 1969.
Biles’ competing costume was also significant. The athlete donned a mint and teal leotard in solidarity with the Me Too movement and the countless female gymnasts who stood up against sexual abuse and misconduct. “It is for the survivors, and I stand with all of them,” she said of her decision to wear the leotard. In Jan. 2018, Biles was one of many who came forward to accuse U.S. Gymnastics doctor Larry Nassar of sexual abuse. Nassar was found guilty and sentenced to 40 to 175 on 10 counts of sexual assault of minors.
This marks Biles second competition since the Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro in 2016. She is looking to return to the Olympics in Tokyo in 2020. Check out footage from Biles’ performance at the National Championship above.
