A casual look at the last year of superhero films reveals that the genre is in desperate need of revitalization. Outside of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 and Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse, it was the weakest year for the genre since the first Avengers took the box office by storm. From The Flash, Ant-Man […] The post Why We Need More Black Superheroes On The Big Screen appeared first on NewsOne.

“I’m not really good at love advice, I have failed miserably at the whole one-one-one relationship and monogamy,” rapper Too $hort confessed. It was hours before he would continue his press day and head over to XXL Magazine’s offices to record the now infamous video clip where he gave advice to middle school boys on […]

This has got to stop… I want it said from the top of the talk, I have not come here to bash the boy Robin Thicke. It’s my understanding in the fundamentals of manhood, that you just aren’t a man until you know what it feels like to camp out on a couch in the […]

There are plenty of experts offering up their predictions on who will win this year’s Super Bowl. The casual sports fan has not been crunching stats and really isn’t as invested as the suits at ESPN, but that won’t stop them (us) from having an opinion on who will walk away with the Vince Lombardi […]

“Ignorance is bliss” has got to be one of the most inaccurate phrases in the history of the human language. That’s probably true, right up until it’s NOT.

Well it’s a new year. And while everyone around the world was looking forward to fresh new beginnings in 2014, some of us couldn’t resist earning a few last minute fuckery points before 2013 said sayonara. Enter ya boy D-Wade… mostly because he entered someone other than his long time former girlfriend and current fiancé […]

Illusionist David Blaine will be airing a new special on ABC, “David Blaine: Real or Magic,” in November and it will feature a star-studded roster of guests including Kanye West. Considering that Kim Kardashian’s fiance has been canceling Yeezus tour days left and right anyway, we think he should have a nice seat in the phantom zone […]

  As far as rap music is concerned, Jay Z is arguably one of the top five artists to ever do it. I would not have been able to predict this back when I heard him for the first time — on his mentor Jaz-O’s single “Hawaiian Sophie” — with his moderately mediocre rapid-fire staccato […]

By now, I’m sure we’ve all heard the story of the Trayon Christian. He’s the nineteen-year-old college kid who got bagged by the cops after buying a Ferragamo belt from Barneys last April for a whopping $350 dollars. The crime here, in my opinion, is two fold.
