People of Color Fare Better in Music, ‘A Stark Contrast From Film Industry,’ Study Finds

The latest USC Annenberg Inclusion Initiative study, titled Inclusion in the Recording Studio?, was released today, the third authored by Dr. Stacy L. Smith.

Pornhub Reveals Most Searched Celebrities Of 2019!

Who does the world most want to see having sex? Believe it or not, it’s NOT any of the women pictured above…

Ubiquitously popular porn site Pornhub bared all its 2019 data for curious users to peruse, including the one we’re most interested in: most searched celebrities. The list has a lot of familiar names but also some surprises, including the most searched celeb of the year. But we’ll get back to #1.

Photos: Celebs With Sex Tapes

For now, let’s talk about #2 — Kim Kardashian West, who has been a staple of porn searches since her infamous sex tape with Ray J hit the Internet in 2007 — innerestingly the same year Pornhub was launched.

Kim is still on fire, maybe even moreso this year after hubby Kanye West has been on a religious tear, declaring he no longer wants his wife seen in sexy photos and revealing gowns. Perhaps the Internet decided they didn’t want to be told what not to look at? In any case, Kim had an impressive year with a whopping 18,817,924 searches!

Just behind her in third place is Cardi B, who as a former stripper has shown more comfortability with being nude than most pop stars, with 11,823,278 searches.

In fourth place is a lesser known name: Lena The Plug.

The YouTube star is known for her sexually explicit vlogs and sexy snaps on Instagram. She got a ton of subscribers in 2018 when she announced she and her boyfriend would release a sex tape if they hit a million subscribers on YT — she now has her own channel doing porn on Pornhub.

Ariana Grande took 5th place with 9,009,394 searches, followed by Nicki Minaj with 8,459,709, Selena Gomez with 7,396,703, and Kylie Jenner with 5,924,333.

Coming in at #9 was a ’90s sitcom star who made headlines this year by getting into porn for real — Maitland Ward from Boy Meets World!

Rounding out the top ten was Miley Cyrus, whose searches apparently doubled the day she announced her breakup with Liam Hemsworth.

Other notable celebs include Jennifer Lopez at #11 — probably fueled by her role as a stripper in the hit film Hustlers, RihannaKaty Perry, and Demi Lovato.

Then #16 was YouTuber Tana Mongeau, who had a big year after her stunt wedding to Jake Paul.

Rounding out the top 20 were:

17. Celestia Vega

18. Margot Robbie

19. Emily Ratjkowski

20. Gal Gadot

So who was #1? The most searched celeb on Pornhub? That honor belongs to social media starlet Belle Delphine.

If that name sounds only vaguely familiar, it may be because of a WILD news story this year.

Belle, a former Instagram model (she got banned for violating nudity guidelines too often), went viral after selling jars of her actual bathwater to drooling fans. She also started up her own Pornhub page, posting notably non-pornographic videos with purposely misleading names, like “Belle Delphine gets a huge dripping CREAMPIE” which is just her making a literal pie with whipped cream and smashing it into her face.

Despite the troll tactics, or maybe because of them, her fanbase only grew this year.

The Sexiest Music Videos Of The DECADE!!

What a decade it’s been in music!

Many of today’s talented performers have helped us express and believe in ourselves through the power of song.

But more importantly, many of today’s artists have been stepping up their sexy music video game!

To celebrate how far we’ve come in music video sexiness over the past decade, we’ve compiled a list of the absolute sexiest videos from the 2010s for your viewing pleasure — so take a walk down memory lane and ch-ch-check em out (below)!!

Lady Gaga ft. Beyoncé, ‘Telephone’ (2010)

Lady GaGa kicked off the decade with a cinematic, 9-minute short that blends murder, a sandwich-making tutorial, and Quentin Tarantino references and somehow still manages to be sexy. In the video for Telephone — which is actually a sequel to the Paparazzi video — GaGa is bailed out of a women’s prison by her partner in crime, Beyoncé (ahem, Honey Bee). The two to hop in the Pussy Wagon from Kill Bill: Volume I and head to a diner, where they proceed to poison Honey Bee’s problematic lover and drive off into the sunset together. Love wins; so does meta-cyanide.

Katy Perry, ‘California Gurls’ (2010)

Later that summer, Katy Perry launched her sophomore album Teenage Dream with this sweet, sexy visual feast. Like the upbeat track itself, the video for California Gurls paid tribute to the singer’s native Golden State — but with a confectious spin: it shows Katy wandering through the Candy Cane forest, nakedly perched atop the Cotton Candy clouds, and dancing on the beach in a teeny-weeny cupcake bikini. To top it all off, Katy ends the video by dousing Californialand in whipped cream. When can we book our flights!?

Rihanna, ‘S&M’ (2011)

Sadomasochism might not be everyone’s thing, but Rihanna certainly made whips and chains exciting with this colorful, tantalizing video. Coming in during her Loud era, the video shows the songstress in both master and slave scenarios, proving that this makeup mogul has always been a multi-hyphenate.

But there’s more at play here: director Melina Metsoukas told Billboard in 2011 the video is actually an allegory for Riri’s “sadomasochist relationship with the press… it isn’t just about a bunch of whips and chains.” That probably explains the shots of the star whipping reporters and internet bloggers…

Miley Cyrus, ‘Wrecking Ball’ (2013)

By 2013, Miley Cyrus had been trying to shed her wholesome, Disney Channel image for a few years. She was done pandering to the Hanna Montana-loving, teeny-bopping fans, and more than ready to be seen as a grown-up *artiste*. Thus, Bangerz Miley was born.

While the singer first commenced this short-haired, twerkful era with the music video for We Can’t Stop, the followup video for Wrecking Ball really showed what a force she was becoming. Sexy highlights of this video include the starlet swinging on a wrecking ball naked and licking a hammer while she sings about being wrecked by someone in her life. Needless to say, fans were wrecked after watching this.

FKA twigs, ‘Papi Pacify’ (2013)

The dramatic, black-and-white video for FKA twigs‘ single Papi Pacify shows the British singer clinging to a lover in ecstasy. Despite the sensual visuals, however, the video is actually an artistic depiction of an emotionally abusive relationship the star had been in. Speaking to Evening Standard, Twigs said the scenes where her lover sticks his fingers in her mouth represented the moments in that relationship when she couldn’t express herself, explaining:

“In the relationship I couldn’t communicate. The person I was with was stopping me from explaining how I felt. So the physical manifestation is someone putting their hand in your mouth. But there’s an element, too, of liking that as well. It’s messed up. It’s addictive.”

We’d say she definitely captured that feeling with this clip!

Beyoncé, ‘Partition’ (2014)

A year after giving birth to Blue Ivy, Beyoncé wanted to remind the world she was still as sexy as ever. Enter Partition: the freakum song that was so seductive, the star was reportedly afraid to play it for her mom. Set in part at the Parisian cabaret Crazy Horse, where Bey and JAY-Z got engaged, the video shows the songstress playing onstage temptress to her hubby.

She said in the making-of documentary, Self-Titled:

“I know that there’s so many women that feel the same thing after they give birth. You can have your child and you can still have fun and still be sexy and still have dreams and still live for yourself…I’m not embarrassed about it, and I don’t feel like I have to protect that side of me because I do believe that sexuality is a power we all have.”

DJ Snake & Lil’ Jon, ‘Turn Down For What’ (2014)

In this surreal video directed by The Daniels (the duo behind that wonderfully bizarre Daniel Radcliffe corpse movie), a man with an insatiable urge to dance possesses everyone in his apartment building floor-by-floor, resulting in a dance party of comically horny tenants unable to control their appendages. It’s semi-NSFW, if d**ks rhythmically pulsating underneath sweatpants is something you don’t want your boss to see you watching.

Nicki Minaj, ‘Anaconda’ (2014)

Months later, Nicki Minaj reinforced the power of booty with the sweltering Anaconda music video. The rapper’s ode to her backside was accompanied by this jaw-dropping clip that costars a pent up Drake and an equally frustrated banana. While there are buns and hips galore, the video is actually all about Nicki maintaining control in the art of seduction. She told GQ in 2014:

“At first I’m being sexual with the banana, and then it’s like, ‘Ha-ha, no.’ That was important for us to show in the kitchen scene, because it’s always about the female taking back the power, and if you want to be flirty and funny that’s fine, but always keeping the power and the control in everything.”

Call her the anaconda whisperer!

Selena Gomez, ‘Hands To Myself’ (2016)

Years before Netflix‘s You came out and gave everyone complicated feelings about stalkers, Selena Gomez decided to make stalking sexy with this incredible music video that was released in January 2016.

In 2015, Selena tapped director Alek Keshishian to direct the video for her touchy-feely single Hands to Myself, in which she plays a stalker who breaks into her celebrity crush’s house. In a making-of clip, Selly said she wanted the concept of the video “to feel like it was two different versions of being in this fantasy,” adding:

“I think everybody can have those moments where they’re dreaming about what their life could be, especially if they’re girls with love, being obsessed with an idea and you can’t control yourself, because that’s what you want no matter what is happening.”

Kanye West, ‘Fade’ (2016)

The visuals for Kanye West‘s Life of Pablo jam Fade are primarily a sweaty Flashdance-esque workout featuring Teyana Taylor. But once she hits the showers, things take an odd turn: she’s joined by her husband, Cleveland Cavaliers guard Iman Shumpert, for some steamy passion before she transforms into a panting lioness while their baby is held skyward by a flock of sheep.

Charli XCX, ‘Boys’ (2017)

Charli XCX intentionally flipped the male gaze in this cheeky self-directed video for Boys that features 60 cameos from male celebs. Among the boys she enlists are Joe Jonas (for pancake eating), Chromeo (for pillow fighting), Cameron Dallas (for chainsaw flexing), and Diplo (for puppy bench pressing). We hereby nominate Charli to direct every music video until the end of time.

Tove Lo, ‘Disco T*ts’ (2017)

Tove Lo blended sex with comedy in the 2017 video for Disco T*ts, showing her on a wild, drug-filled road trip with a Muppet in desperate need of a good time. After the fuzzy talk show host agrees to go off with the singer, he’s quickly corrupted into snorting powdery substances and giving her oral sex while she’s driving. Moral of the story: Tove Lo will make a man out of any Muppet.

Cardi B, ‘Money’ (2018)

Cardi B proved that while money can’t buy happiness, it sure can pay for an alluring music video with this 2018 clip. The Money video surrounds the rapper with bare-nippled strippers and levitating pole dancers, putting Cardi in a glass case at the center of a museum room, as a gold statue on a spinning display, and as the Madonna breastfeeding her baby, Kulture.

Normani, ‘Motivation’ (2019)

After breaking free from Fifth Harmony, Normani proved she didn’t need Camila Cabello and co. to make a sexy music video. In the Motivation video, the singer paid tribute to her pop idols with visual references to Beyoncé‘s Crazy in Love and Britney Spears…Baby One More Time; plus, lots of Brit and Bey-level sexy dancing. We’d say she did them proud!

Harry Styles, ‘Lights Up’ (2019)

Harry Styles cemented his sex symbol status at the end of the decade with this orgiastic clip. The Lights Up video places the former One Direction member in a gaggle of sweaty bodies, with people of all genders fighting to put their hands on the shirtless singer. It did little to quell the speculation about Harry’s ever-ambiguous sexuality, but we’re not complaining.

Nicki Minaj Rips Into Wendy Williams Over TV Host’s Comments About Her Husband! WHOA!

Don’t come for Nicki Minaj‘s man — because she will NOT hold back in defending him.

The newly married rapper took to her Friday night show on Queen Radio and used some of the time to absolutely BLAST daytime television host Wendy Williams for her earlier comments about Kenneth Petty, Minaj’s new hubby. And believe us… Nicki went absolutely all in on Wendy, without holding back… these quotes are fire!!!

Related: Does Nicki Need To Retire?!

This all started earlier on Friday, when Wendy openly mocked Nicki’s relationship with Petty — who is an ex-convict — while calling him a “killer” and a “sex offender” during her show’s latest round of Hot Topics. That clearly didn’t sit well with Nicki, who chose to use her radio show as a way to defend her man, and her relationship, from critics like the daytime TV talk legend.

On Queen Radio, the rapper called the host “demonic” and “vicious,” and added this into the mix (below):

“It’s not about doing your job. There are people who report the news and there are people who do it with an evil intent in their heart, viciousness. And I pray for you because I know you’re hurting and I know you must be sick and humiliated. I didn’t know that in our society, you have to be plagued by your past. I didn’t know that people can’t turn over a new leaf. I didn’t know that your viciousness and evilness was this deep rooted.”

Wow! Thoughtful… and powerful in her defense of her man!

But Nicki wasn’t done there — not even close. She also made it personal against Wendy, calling out her estranged husband Kevin Hunter and blasting the TV host for sticking around while he allegedly ran around behind her back with another woman.

Is Nicki Minaj pregnant and engaged??
Say what you will about Nicki and Kenneth… they sure are marching to the beat of their own drum! / (c) Nicki Minaj/Instagram

Minaj went IN on Williams with that angle, saying (below):

“When a women isn’t really being loved at home, the viciousness is a different type. So I really wanted to pray for you today, because look at where you are now in your life. Look at what age you are. You’re sat up there being vicious all this time, and paid for that man’s mistress all these years. You paid for her shopping sprees, you paid for her hotels, you probably even paid for her GYN bills, you paid to have that baby delivered, hoe.”

Whoa… The rapper even ended her rant at that point by mocking Wendy’s well-known catchphrase, saying into the mice, “How you doin’, stupid?”

Brutal!!!

Related: Nicki’s Collaboration With Adele Was All A Joke!

After going personal, though, Nicki made one more plea for all of the criticism to stop, speaking directly to Wendy through her show and adding (below):

“I know we’re human first, we’re human before we’re celebrities, we’re human before we’re personas. And I know you must have gone through a lot. But you are demonic, and that’s why this stuff unfolded. If I were you, I would go and pray, ask for forgiveness. You can report the news—people do it all the time—without the level of viciousness and trying to play dumb and doing all this nonsense.”

Well then!

The Anaconda rapper actually makes a couple of pretty good points, doesn’t she?! And though we absolutely have had our own criticisms of Petty during our reporting on the topic, we can certainly understand the impulse of a wife wanting to defend her husband.

What do U think, Perezcious readers?! Sound OFF about everything in the comments (below)…

Album Review: ‘Charlie’s Angels: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack’

Ariana Grande has had a sterling year-and-a-quarter, releasing the squeakily soulful “Sweetener” album in August 2018, then the equally sleek, freer and self-empowered “Thank U, Next” six months later. That’s saying nothing of Grande telling off 2019’s Grammy producers (don’t tell Ariana what songs she can and can’t perform), becoming the youngest artist to headline […]

Nicki Minaj Flaunts Her GIANT Wedding Ring As Her Ex-Con Hubby Jokes He ‘Cut Somebody’ For It!

Newlywed Nicki Minaj is so proud of her new bling!

The Megatron rapper took to Instagram on Wednesday to finally show off her massive wedding ring. As you know, the 36-year-old recently tied the knot with Kenneth Petty but the pair waited a little while to officially reveal their matching sparklers and let the world in on their mostly private relationship.

Related: Nicki Minaj’s Collaboration With Adele Was All A Joke!

As you can see in the video she shared, Mr. and Mrs. Petty had a ball dressing up as characters from the Bride of Chucky movie ahead of Halloween this week. But our focus is on Nicki’s impressive wedding band!

Get a good look at it in the clip (below):

Nice!

But, wait. Did anyone catch that cheeky conversation between the lovebirds??

The Queen rapper might’ve let us all in on a secret behind her ring when she said:

“Hello, Chucky! Well, Chucky. I love you and I just wanna know: Everybody says that you secured the bag. You married a multi-millionaire, and you secured the bag.”

Petty then chimed in and joked he had to “cut somebody’s motherf–king finger off for that ring.”

Uhh, inneresting joke for an ex-con to make — even if it is that spooky time of the year. But things get interesting when his wife replied (below):

“You did? You mean, I didn’t buy this ring?”

And he quipped right back at her saying:

“No, you didn’t buy that ring.”

Damn. These two are really putting it all out there! If Petty did actually purchase the diamond, he certainly paid a pretty penny for it.

According to the jewelers who crafted Nicki’s bling, Rafaello and Company, the special rock has 17 carats and is a radiant cut. Her husband’s band (pictured left, below) features marquee-shaped diamonds and the company noted their combined value totals a whopping $1.1 million.

As we mentioned at the top, the couple had fun with their costumes and reveal. Ch-ch-check out more shots of ’em together (below):

So in love and so unbothered!

If you’ll recall, Nicki and Kenneth first went public in December 2018.

He was previously convicted of attempted rape in the first degree back in the 1990s after an incident in 1994 where he allegedly attempted to sexually assault a 16-year-old girl in New York City.

Kenneth was sentenced to between 18 and 54 months in state prison at the time of his 1995 conviction, though it is unclear how much time he actually served.

After postponing their nuptials twice, the pair finally wed this October.

Nicki Minaj & Ex-Con Kenneth Petty Tie The Knot!

Nicki Minaj seems to be officially married!

The rapper and her ex-con fiancé Kenneth Petty revealed back in August how they already obtained a marriage license, meaning they had just 80 days left to get hitched! So, it sounds like they finally did the damn thing on Monday!

Minaj, ahem Miz Petty, took to Instagram yesterday with a video showing off their “Mrs.” and “Mr.” mugs, along with hats embroidered with “Bride” and “Groom.”

Related: Nicki Minaj Says Retirement Tweet Was ‘Abrupt & Insensitive’

But it was the caption stating her new married name which made it pretty obvious:

“👰🏽🤵🏽😢🙏🏽🎀 Onika Tanya Maraj-Petty 10•21•19”

Many celebs came through in the comments to congratulate the newlyweds on the exciting news and clearly showed their support despite Petty’s controversial past.

Christina Aguilera posted, “Congrats queen! 😍❤️,” while Winnie Harlow wrote:

“So happy for you Mrs.Bride you deserve all the happiness in the world 💞👰🏾👑”

La La Anthony echoed those sentiments, sharing:

“Congrats Nick‼️‼️u did it 🙏🏽🏆❤️”

Kimora Lee Simmons added, “Congrats to you both!❤️❤️🙏🏼⭐️🎉,” as Naomi Cambell commented:

“Congratulations to you both on your beautiful Union ♥️♥️🎉🎉”

Just recently, the Anaconda artist shared details about her upcoming nuptials to the registered sex offender. She dished:

“We got the marriage license, now I just have to wait until my pastor that I love comes and does it for us. The big wedding and all that stuff, that will happen, but just not at this moment.”

While Nicki spilled she has a “dope designer” for her wedding gown and is “really excited” to say “I Do,” she’s ignoring the “hoopla,” and ready to start her future with her love:

“When I was little, I always imagined princess and marriage and the wedding and now it’s more to me about the life, the future, the love, the partnership, than the wedding. [It’s] so strange cause I didn’t expect myself to be one of those people who didn’t care about the hoopla, but I really don’t.”

The Queens native continued:

“… I just kind of feel like it doesn’t mean as much as it used to mean because the other part, the real part, I have it now and I’m so happy.”

After only making their relationship IG official in December 2018, it sounds like the star couldn’t wait to take this next step with her man!

And it appears there’s still a big wedding to come, most likely with celeb attendees, but for now, they can at least call each other “hubby” and “wifey”!

Nicki Minaj Confirms Collaboration With Adele & Dishes On The ‘Hoopla’ Over Her Upcoming Wedding!

So much for retirement: Nicki Minaj has been busy lately!

During an interview with Entertainment Tonight on Tuesday, the Megatron rapper revealed she’s got a new song coming out with Adele! After being asked if she and the British songstress were working on anything, or even considering collaborating in the near future, she exclaimed:

“Yes and yes, yes and yes, wooo hoo!”

Related: Nicki Threatens To Break DJ Akademiks’ Jaw In Heated IG Exchange — WTF?!

The 36-year-old realized was unable to control her excitement as she dished more details about the track. Speaking to ET‘s Keltie Knight, she said:

“But Adele made me swear to secrecy that I’m not allowed to tell anyone that I’m working with her. And that we already shot a video. And it’s an epic song! Ahh!”

Dayum! How long was she holding on to that secret for? Was this impromptu reveal even part of the plan? LOLz.

Nevertheless, we are SO pumped about all of this, but dare we say Adele might be more excited than all of us?! Do y’all remember when she SLAYED a flawless rendition of Minaj’s Monster verse at a club in El Lay back in June? And put her ridiculous skills on the mic to the test?

Yep, we can’t forget it either!

While Minaj didn’t share any specifics on the pair’s record, the collaboration could likely be part of the 21 crooner’s highly-anticipated fourth studio album.

In the meantime, we can also expect another hit from Nicki coming out soon on the Charlie’s Angels soundtrack as the outlet reports she teamed up with pop powerhouses Ariana Grande and Normani for their tune, Bad To You. Did we mention the entertainer shared all of this at the launch celebration for her new fashion collection called Fendi Prints On?

Like we said, retirement where??

In addition to all of the music news, the soon-to-be bride shared details about her upcoming nuptials to Kenneth Petty. She dished:

“We got the marriage license, now I just have to wait until my pastor that I love comes and does it for us. The big wedding and all that stuff, that will happen, but just not at this moment.”

As we wrote back in August, the Chun-Li rapper and her fiancé obtained a marriage license for the second time and pledged to get married within 80 days.

While Nicki noted she has a “dope designer” for her wedding gown and is “really excited” to say “I Do,” she isn’t getting caught up in all of the nitty-gritty details of planning the big day. She spilled:

“When I was little, I always imagined princess and marriage and the wedding and now it’s more to me about the life, the future, the love, the partnership, than the wedding. [It’s] so strange cause I didn’t expect myself to be one of those people who didn’t care about the hoopla, but I really don’t.”

The New Yorker continued:

“… I just kind of feel like it doesn’t mean as much as it used to mean because the other part, the real part, I have it now and I’m so happy.”

Ahh — spoken like a lady in true love!

The future Mr. and Mrs. Petty! / (c) Nicki Minaj/Instagram

Miz Minaj may not be interested in prepping her walk down the aisle, but she and her man are already hard at work on the next step in their relationship: making babies!

Speaking on the couple’s desire to start a family someday, she added:

“We practice all the time, like, you know, three times a night… At first I was like, ‘I want it now. I want it now.’ And then I started thinking if I want it right, right now or if I want to wait another year because I have a couple things that I have to do.”

One thing at a time, gurl!

Joe Budden Goes Deep on Nicki Minaj Fight, Reconciliation: ‘Hip-Hop Brought Us Together’

No one has ever accused Nicki Minaj of having much of a filter — not in person, and certainly not in new music such as her recent “Megatron” single. The rapper showed off her biting side on Monday night when she returned to her Beats 1 “Queen Radio” show with special guest Joe Budden and […]

Nicki Minaj Says She Will Get Married To Kenneth Petty Within ’80 Days’!

Nicki Minaj is getting hitched!

On Monday’s episode of Queen Radio, the Super Bass rapper said she and Kenneth Petty have obtained a marriage license for the second time, and will get married within 80 days.

(In June on her Apple Beats 1 show, she said the two got a license, and on Monday, July 29, it was reported the couple obtained one at the marriage license bureau window at the Beverly Hills Courthouse.)

The MC dished:

“We filed for the marriage license and we still had to pick it up and I was traveling, by the time I came back, we had to renew it again… From that time, you have 90 days to get married. That was about a week ago, so now I have about 80 days.”

While the pair will legally tie the knot before their marriage license expires, they plan to have a “big wedding” at a later date.

“I have to work on my album and I have a lot to focus on that I don’t want to do the big wedding now. We’ll do the big wedding later… I’ll be married before my album comes out, but will have my wedding after the album comes out. Before the 90 days is over, yes, I will be married. I’m very happy about that because my baby makes me so happy.”

In July, fans believed the 36-year-old confirmed both her engagement AND pregnancy on her latest collaboration with Chance the Rapper titled Zanies and Fools.

She spits in her verse:

He the Clyde to my Bonnie, ’bout to walk down the aisle and be a mommy / Ooh, I remember when I cried like, ‘Why me?’ / Now I wouldn’t exchange my life for Armani

After the tune was released, the Barbz could NOT contain their excitement! They penned on social media:

“THIS IS NOT A DRILL NICKI IS PREGNANT AND SHES GETTING MARRIED”

“OMG AT THE END OF ZANIES AND FOOLS NICKI SAID SHE WAS PREGNANT LISTEN TO THE WHOLE THING LIKE 10 TIMES AND YOULL HEAR IT”

“if nicki minaj is actually pregnant im about to be born again see yall in 9 months”

Nicki and Kenneth first went public in December 2018.

He was previously convicted of attempted rape in the first degree back in the 1990s after an incident in 1994 where he allegedly attempted to sexually assault a 16-year-old girl in New York City.

Kenneth was sentenced to between 18 and 54 months in state prison at the time of his 1995 conviction, though it is unclear how much time he actually served.

Petty was also charged with manslaughter back in 2006 after allegedly shooting a man in an unrelated incident.

Megan Thee Stallion Breaks Down the Rules of Hot Girl Summer

It’s already August, but according to Megan Thee Stallion, “hot girl summer” — the social media-fueled movement that’s been hashtagged so much, even fast food chains have jumped in — is far from over. “We’ve extended the summer, honestly. We’re gonna drive it until October. Don’t even trip,” the rapper and self-designated “hot girl coach” […]

Megan Thee Stallion Enlists Nicki Minaj & Ty Dolla $ign For Her Official ‘Hot Girl Summer’ Anthem!

Megan Thee Stallion has spent most of the year trying to promote her concept of a “hot girl summer.” Now, she has a song to go with it — and it’s appropriately hot!

The 24-year-old Houston native released the bass-heavy track, aptly titled Hot Girl Summer, on Friday morning. 

Sampling City GirlsAct Up, the spicy single features vocals from Nicki Minaj and Ty Dolla $ign in between Megan’s own lyrics about juggling one’s hotness with the attention that comes with it.

Earlier this week, Nicki revealed she “fell in love” with the track upon hearing it, and decided to write a verse despite the fact she was losing her voice at the time. She explained on Twitter:

The term “hot girl summer” has caught on like wildfire in recent months and has since exploded into the internet’s hottest meme. Now, Megan is in the process of trying to copyright it. 

According to the artist, having a hot girl summer isn’t so much about physical hotness as it is about “women and men being unapologetically them, just having a good-ass time, hyping up their friends, doing you,” as she explained to The Root in June.

Thankfully, we now have the Hot Girl Summer anthem we deserve. Take a listen to the hot bop (above)!
