Bae, Big Sean, and Jhene Aiko: Jhene Aiko Opens Up About How Her Relationship With Big Sean Began: "He Wanted to Take Me Out on a Date. I Had a Boyfriend, But I Still Went Just As A Fiendr @balleralert Jhene Aiko Opens Up About How Her Relationship With Big Sean Began: "He Wanted to Take Me Out on a Date. I Had a Boyfriend, But I Still Went Just As A Friend"- blogged by @lanaladonna ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Last week, JheneAiko completed a promo run in London for her newest album, ‘Trip’. While in the U.K., the singer stopped by ‘1Xtra Breakfast Show with Dotty,’ a popular radio show on the overseas network, BBC Radio. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ During the interview, Aiko discussed how her and rapper bae, BigSean became the couple we know them as today, past relationships, motherhood, and more. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ "The year that my brother passed, I had just met him[Big Sean],” she explained "And we worked on "Beware" and "I'm Gonna Be". He wanted to take me out on a date. I had a boyfriend, but I still went...just as a friend.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Sparks began to fly when their friendship began back in 2012, despite Jhene already being in a relationship. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ "I mean, I had never been courtside to a game," she jokingly added. "And he's cool. So, I told my boyfriend I'm gonna go to this game." ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Many believed that Aiko broke up with her boyfriend to pursue a relationship with Sean, but according to Jhene, their relationship was practically done before Sean even came into the picture. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Aiko’s then-boyfriend was secretly married to his baby mama (yikes!), and that’s what led to their split. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Timing played a huge role in the couple finally becoming a union. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “When I came around and was like, let’s see what he’s [Sean] talking about,” said Aiko. “He.. got a girlfriend. I took too long.” The two were playing relationship tag with one another for a while. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ All’s well that ends well though, because their stars finally aligned, and now the couple can’t seem to be able to get enough of one another.

America, Donald Trump, and Memes: Decline In Tourism Since Trump Took Office Has Cost The U.S. $4.6 Billion In Spending and 40,000 Jobs @balleralert Decline In Tourism Since Trump Took Office Has Cost The U.S. $4.6 Billion In Spending and 40,000 Jobs - blogged by @MsJennyb ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ As Donald Trump continues to make America great (again) for his rich white counterparts with his racist rhetoric, discriminatory views on immigration and blatant ignorance, international tourism is on a steep decline. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ According to new date from The National Travel and Tourism Office, reported by NBC News, the country has suffered a 3.3 percent drop in travel spending and a 4 percent decline in inbound travel since Trump took office. As a result, $4.6 billion has been lost in spending, 40,000 jobs have been taken away and the country has lost its spot as the world’s second most popular destination for foreign travel. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The dip in travel is said to be, large in part, due to Trump. With his controversial travel bans to his racist language and extreme anti-immigration views, international tourists are less interested in traveling to the world’s melting pot. For some, it just isn’t worth the security risk. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ According to the LA Times, the U.S. Travel Association is looking to launch a “Visit US” campaign to remedy the situation.

Basketball, LeBron James, and Life: LeBron James' Tattoo Artist Suing NBA2K For Using His Tattoc Designs Without Permission @balleralert SHO DER EVELAND LeBron James’ Tattoo Artist Suing NBA2K For Using His Tattoo Designs Without Permission– blogged by @MsJennyb ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Famed tattoo artist, James Hayden, who is best known for inking the likes of TristanThompson, DannyGreen, KyrieIrving and LeBronJames, is suing the company behind a video game for stealing his work. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ In a lawsuit obtained by TMZ, Hayden is accusing the company behind the popular basketball game, NBA2K17, for using his artwork without his permission. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The game is best known for its lifelike features and commentary. The game displays the life-like characteristics of the players, from their moves and their favorite sayings, all the way down to their facial features and tattoos. However, Hayden says the game did not ask to feature The King’s “Gloria” tattoo or his “Lion Design,” as he says he owns the rights to the designs. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ In the suit, Hayden lets it be known that he isn’t the first artist, and probably won’t be the last, to sue for their artwork. The suit cites an instance where Mike Tyson’s tattoo artist took “The Hangover 2” cast to court over using Tyson’s design in the movie without proper permission. As a result, Hayden wants 2k Games Inc to pay up for their detail work in NBA2k16, ‘17 and ‘18. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Although Hayden didn’t provide an amount, he says he wants a portion of the profits from the game franchise.
