America, Head, and Love: liffany Haddish Becomes the Newest Spokesperson for Groupon, Set to Star in the Company's Super Bowl Ad Commercial(@balleralert Read More: www.balleralert.comm Tiffany Haddish Becomes the Newest Spokesperson for Groupon, Set to Star in the Company’s Super Bowl Ad Commercial - blogged by: @ashleytearra ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Actress and comedienne TiffanyHaddish loves saving money just as much as she loves to make people laugh, and her love for both just landed her an all-new partnership. The GirlsTrip breakout star is the newest spokesperson for Groupon, which is one of the fastest-growing e-commerce marketplaces to date. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Last year, in an interview on JimmyKimmelLive, Haddish admitted to taking Will and JadaPinkettSmith on a Groupon-bought swamp tour while in Louisiana filming ‘Girls Trip’. The hilariously-told story went viral and Groupon immediately knew that they wanted Haddish on board, someway, somehow. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ After noticing how much Haddish knew about their company and its products, they thought that it would only be fitting to bring the 38-year-old on for their first Super Bowl ad commercial in seven years, and they did just that. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “The Jimmy Kimmel link went through the entire company very quickly,” Groupon’s head of marketing for North America, Jon Wild, tells People. “We talked about involving her in our business more, and, as we got to know her, her purchases and the type of customer she is. We wanted to find her the stage that is appropriate, and here we are talking about her in the context of the Super Bowl.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ However, it was while working with Haddish that they realized how much of a Grouponer she really is. Haddish actually ranked in the top one percent of the most frequent Groupon purchasers. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ This impressed the team so much that they even put some free bucks in her Groupon account and created a page with all of Haddish’s Groupon favorites. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “Nobody knows Groupon like I know Groupon.

America, Crazy, and Friday: Nas Collabs With The National Symphony Orchestra For Live Rendition of "lllmatic" @balleralert Nas Collabs With The National Symphony Orchestra For Live Rendition of ‘Illmatic’ - Blogged by: @RaquelHarrisTV ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ An upcoming PBS concert film has teamed up Nas with the National Symphony Orchestra for a live performance that takes you back to the 90s. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The iconic rapper will be doing a live rendition of his legendary, 1994 album “Illmatic” at the Washington, D.C. arena on Feb. 2. It is titled by PBS as, “Nas Live From the Kennedy Center: Classical Hip-Hop, the concert film musters the energetic appeal of the profound collaboration and wistfulness of the audible hip-hop Queensbridge fable.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ "It’s crazy, you know, I wrote this in the projects in New York City. Here we are in the capital of America, Washington, DC, and, you know, a bunch of white people with strings and all that, playing this album, and they feeling it," Nas said in the film trailer. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The recording of the concert film took place in March 2014, when Nas was celebrating Illmatic’s 20th anniversary. The film will portray the Queens native’s upbringing, career, and musical background. It will also feature rehearsals, preparation and Illmatic’s journey to Kennedy Center stage. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ "This was the first time me as a classical orchestra conductor was going to branch out into the realm of doing hip-hop music and rap music. And the idea of finally tackling this genre was something I was really looking forward to do," National Symphony Orchestra Principal Pops Conductor Steven Reineke said in a statement. The performance is set to premiere on the PBS network nationwide on Friday, February 2 at 9 p.m

America, Apparently, and Community: Dave Chappelle Responds to Backlash Over Transgender Jokes: "It's f*cking insulting all this talk about how these people feel inside" @balleralert Read More: www.balleralert.com Dave Chappelle Responds to Backlash Over Transgender Jokes: "It’s f*cking insulting all this talk about how these people feel inside” - Blogged by @tktrinidad ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Dave Chappelle has been in the comedy industry for 30 years and even after he walked away from his hit show, “Chappelle Show,” 13 years later he steps on stage like he hasn’t missed a beat. At the start of 2017, Chappelle released two specials, followed by two more Netflix specials. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Throughout the year, the comedian was ranked top 10 on the 50 Best Stand Up Comics of All Time, according to Rolling Stones and won an Emmy Award for his appearance on Saturday Night Live. With Chappelle being on the top of the game there will always be some criticism. There are two beliefs when it comes to comedians. One, comedians are able to say whatever they want or two, comedians can’t say certain things about certain people. Apparently, Chappelle is on the side of saying what you feel as a comedian. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ After receiving backlash for his jokes about the LGBTQ community in his earlier Netflix specials, he discussed the controversy in his recent special, Equanimity. “I don’t understand all the choices people make but I do understand that life is hard and those types of choices don't disqualify you from a life with dignity, happiness, and safety,” he said. “But if I’m honest, my problem has never been with transgender people, my problem has always been with dialogue about transgender people. I feel like these things should not be discussed in front of blacks. Its f*cking insulting all this talk about how these people feel inside.
