Black Panther Was A Cruel Experiment : Diddy

Published

Diddy

The film smashed through box office records and wowed audiences and critics alike but the rap mogul has suggested the Marvel movie “over-delivered” as opportunities for black actors and filmmakers are limited.

The movie – about a black African superhero – was praised for its black director and mainly black cast but, speaking to Variety, Diddy has voiced doubt on whether its success will actually change things for the better.

“Black Panther was a cruel experiment,” he said.

“We live in 2018, and it’s the first time that the film industry gave us a fair playing field on a worldwide blockbuster, and the hundreds of millions it takes to make it.

“You can’t do anything without that money, without resources. But when we do get the resources, we over-deliver. When Adidas invests in Kanye and it’s done properly, you have the right results. When Live Nation invests in artists and puts them in arenas the same way U2 would be, you have the right results.

Diddy further criticised the music industry noting “there’s no black CEO of a major record company”.

“You have these record companies that are making so much money off our culture, our art form, but they’re not investing or even believing in us.”

“For all the billions of dollars that these black executives have been able to make them, [there’s still hesitation] to put them in the top-level positions.”

AKA

One of South Africa’s finest rappers, AKA has revealed he may soon give up his 1.4 million followers on Instagram.

According to him, there has to be more to life than the social networking site as there is so much pressure to be what one’s not when logged on to Instagram.

He tweeted

I’m legit thinking of quitting Instagram. The pressure it’s putting on young men and women for material things is scary, and people like me are part of the problem without even knowing it. That thing was created for one purpose, for you to want things you don’t actually need.

Kim Kardashian made a whopping $5million in just five minutes when she released her new set of perfumes on Tuesday according to TMZ.

Kim and company did not spend a single cent on advertising and instead opted to use the power of social media.

Other than promoting the release herself, she also sent candy grams to her celebrity pals including Drew Barrymore and sisters who all posted the gifts on their Instagrams and other apps.

According to the publication, the total amount of bottles was increased to meet demands as each one retailed at $45 a pop.

This is not the first time Kim made an insane amount of money within minutes as last year’s first launch made $14million.

Meghan Markle’s half-sister, Samantha Grant, escalated a family feud with a series of angry tweets on her private account targeting the former actress.

“My father is not an embarrassment for loving his daughter! The Royals are an embarrassment for being so cold,” Grant wrote on Tuesday. “You should be ashamed of yourselves @KensingtonRoyal.” “How about you pay tribute to your own father?! Enough is enough,” Grant said. “Act like a humanitarian act like a woman! If our father dies I’m holding you responsible, Meg!”

Grant’s outburst occurred two days after Meghan’s father, Thomas Markle, told The Sun that he thought the new Duchess of Sussex looked “terrified” to be a royal and that she hadn’t spoken to him since the day after her wedding to Prince Harry.
