Raven-Symone will be returning for a second season of Raven’s Home. The Disney hit has been renewed amid success and tons of buzz about the show’s first season.
Adam Bonnett, executive vice president, Original Programming, Disney Channels Worldwide, said in a statement, “We are incredibly proud of our first season and the fact that Raven has returned home to Disney Channel in a very big way. The entire cast and crew have delivered a classic family sitcom that kids and families will be watching for many years to come.”
Cardi B’s “Bodak Yellow” has earned another milestone. The hit song, which climbed to the top of the Billboard Hot 100, made Cardi the first female rapper in history to land at the top of the chart with no featured artists.
Now, after three weeks in the number one spot, Cardi is the longest running solo female rapper to hold the top spot.
Lena Waithe dished on the first thing Aziz Ansari texted her the day after their big win at the Emmys.
Waithe and Ansari took home the award for Outstanding Writing for a Comedy Series at this year’s ceremony, marking the first time a Black woman had ever taken the award home.
Waithe revealed to WNYC’s Werk It that Ansari’s text the next day was a joke about the pair’s favorite mini-series, “He and I are obsessed with a mini-series that came on ABC called The Jacksons: An American Dream… we always text back and forth [about] that miniseries… after we won… he was like, [I want] to remember something, ‘That’s my blood running through your veins, not Berry Gordy’s!…’ … Aziz is quoting The Jacksons: AN American Dream to me… in my phone…”
Trans activist and filmmaker Reina Gossett has called out The Death and Life of Marsha P. Johnson director David France for allegedly stealing her work.
Gossett took to Instagram revealing that “while I’m borrowing money to pay rent, David France is releasing his multimillion dollar Netflix deal on Marsha P. Johnson.”
The filmmaker claims that France was inspired to make the Netflix film after seeing a grant application video from Gossett and filmmaker Sasha G. Wortzel.
France has since issued a statement claiming that he reached out over worries “we were duplicating efforts.” “Marsha’s and Sylvia’s inspiring stories have been told before and must be told again with many voices, especially by trans women who have an even harder time raising funds than we did,” said France. “That’s why we fully support Reina and Sasha’s beautiful film.”
