Boy Sh-t Articles
Is that a world tour or your girl’s tour?
This is the lyric from Drake’s Back To Back that everyone keeps talking about. But I prefer this one:
I don’t wanna her about this ever again
Not even when she tell ‘em that they better as friends
You know why that’s so good? Because it was pre-emptive. Because that’s the sh-t that they always say about Drake re: Rihanna and Nicki Minaj. That they just liked him as a friend. And it’s done in that signature Drake way. Uhhhh, I don’t want to do this, ok, I feel bad doing this, son, but… OK, I’m doing this. Hit ‘em with a prenup!
But that’s always been Drake’s game. He’s always called himself soft. He went soft on the first diss track, Charged Up. Like foreplay. So when Back To Back came out the other night, it felt like a good old fashioned hard pounding, drilling you into the headboard. And while he’s always said that diss tracks weren’t his thing, well, Meek Mill accused him of using a ghostwriter.
Back To Back made Drake look GOOD. The kind of good that makes them all fall back after a sick dunk at the all-star game.
It’s taken almost a week for Meek Mill to respond. And he did, last night, with a track called Wanna Know, featuring Quentin Miller, the rapper alleged to be Drake’s ghostwriter. Click here to listen. Meek’s had time to work on this. Dayyyys. The expectations were high. He’s the hard to Drake’s soft. It was supposed to be a demolition.
Weak. Practically half the song is voice recordings from other people, including Puffy, who had his own beef with Drake but who isn’t exactly known to be the world’s most talented rapper. Puffy, as I wrote a few weeks ago, is the world’s #1 hype man. Those aren’t the punches you want to be throwing. But maybe I’m just biased. Because I’m Canadian and because I live in Toronto. Or maybe, in the end, this all benefits Meek. Because before you knew him as Nicki Minaj’s boyfriend. And now you know him as Nicki Minaj’s boyfriend who picked a fight with Drake and couldn’t back it up. So we all win.
Girl Sh-t is the Best Sh-t. Boy Sh-t is the Best Sh-t too!
Have a great weekend!
Yours in gossip,
Fight! Boy fight! It’s been, what?, a month since Zayn Malik announced he was leaving One Direction? They said it was amicable. Oh come on. It’s never amicable. At least not at the beginning. This sh-t takes years to get over. Can you imagine if Twitter was around when Geri left the Spice Girls? Twitter is a gift at times like this. Full Story
One Direction’s Louis Tomlinson and producer Naughty Boy, who’s working with Zayn Malik on some new music, got into a fight on Twitter. Louis thought Naughty Boy (do we have to call him this???) was disrespecting the band and the fans and Naughty Boy (who can take this name seriously?) was like, nah, man, you’re wrong. Full Story
Justin Bieber has been famous since he was 14 years old. At 20, he’s rich, spoiled, uncontrollable, and protected. JB makes money for a lot of people. Why would they ever shut him down? How could they ever step to him to tell him the truth? So it surprises no one that he behaves like a c-nt. Full Story

Kevin Smith was asked at Comic-Con about whether or not he’s seen Ben Affleck. His response? Not just a simple “no”. "Great question. I don’t know, because we're not f-cking tight. I have not been [close with him] in decades. That's old Ben. He's got a wife that don't [sic] care for me at all [Laughs]. Full Story

Robert Pattinson and Zac Efron went bowling together last night in LA, exactly the kind of wholesome activity both are known to spend their time on. OK. There was a time when Zac was said to be jealous of Robert for all the attention he was getting, or taking. Zac used to be The One. High School Musical. Full Story

So…this appeared on Instagram last night: See, that’s the kind of gossip I’m talking about. Good Gossip. Not that we should believe what we read on Twitter and Instagram, of course not. It’s just… a kind of random story for a random person to make up. Full Story
Lainey loves her Girl Sh-it and her Boy Sh-t, and I love Sibling Sh-t. It’s like Girl Sh-t and Boy Sh-t piled with childhood issues and family dynamics. Of course we’ve had our fair share of it lately (thanks, Solange!) but it doesn’t have to be so dramatic to be interesting. I’m fascinated by Kate and Rooney Mara (why won’t they pose together?!).

Two weeks ago, George Clooney was in Vegas with Rande Gerber and some of this other Casamigos tequila partners having dinner with Vegas magnate Steve Wynn. There was an argument. Wynn says Clooney was a dick and Clooney says Wynn was a dick and, well, basically, rich people can’t get along. Amazingly they’re both talking to the media about what went down. Full Story
Remember when Macklemore won the Grammys for Best New Artist and rap album and then he posted a text message he sent to Kendrick Lamar on social media telling him that he should have won and whatever? Click here to see it. Lame sh-t, right? I turn the dial when Macklemore comes on the radio. Full Story
