Reading Is Fundamental: Feminists Attack Juicy J For Awarding “$50K Twerk Scholarship” To Non-Twerker
Feminists Attack Juicy J For Twerk Scholarship
Yesterday, Juicy J announced the winner of the $50,000 twerking scholarship that he began advertising earlier this year. The winner, 19-year-old Biology major Zaire Holmes won the scholarship by actually reading the fine print of the contest and NOT twerking.
It turns out twerking was not required. Congratulations are in order for Ms. Holmes. She is not only a student, but also a full time single mom, with a clear cut set of goals for becoming a doctor and achieving her dreams. That’s awesome and I am peacock proud of the sister for doing the damn thing!
But I’m absolutely incensed at Juicy J for even daring to invoke respectability politics when announcing his choice of winner.
In the opening scene of the video, Juicy J says, “Fifty thousand dollars is a lot of money and I don’t want to waste it on just some girl twerking her ass. You don’t deserve it.”
I mean look, perhaps it was wrong of us not to recognize the master mind behind “Bands A Make Her Dance,” was incapable of noble intentions toward sisters hustling trying to make it. Who knew that he would use this scholarship as a sick experiment to add credibility to his premise, (i.e. girls will dance for money.)?
But that is the thing we should be clear about. Juicy J wanted girls to twerk, framed it as a twerking competition, and then had the nerve to try to make a ratchet project respectable not by simply taking responsibility for his choice but rather by shaming the sisters who participated.
Yes, many of these women twerked, but they twerked on their own terms, they twerked while reading Dorothy Roberts, they twerked with friends, they twerked for enjoyment.
So while Juicy J might have capitulated to calls to make his process more “respectable” by not requiring a girl to shake her ass for money, he also undercut that by shaming the women who did exactly what he asked them to do.
He seems to have some sick, twisted Captain Save a Ho complex, wherein he wants to be a Sugar Daddy for some girl from the hood, a la E-40. But since he doesn’t fundamentally respect the girls who dance in the club for money, he deems them all unworthy of being saved through his $50 thousand dollar gift.
Sexism warps the mind and the dulls the thinking. Clearly.
Some part of me thinks that we feminists got what we deserved: our willingness to keep on trying to resist and subvert patriarchy often only ends up showing us how much we don’t control the terms of the conversation. And maybe our goal should not just be resistance any longer, but fullscale revolt, because in this instance, Black women got played. But we’re still figuring out what revolution looks like, and unfortunately we still believe these sexist assholes are redeemable and mean us some good.
Sexism doesn’t work that way though. Or rather it works exactly this way. He gives out a few crumbs to Zaire, and transforms her life. She is exceptional and he gets to be the Patron Saint of Hustlin Hood Chicks. All the while, his contempt for women in general and sex workers in particular remains in check and thinly veiled.
In the end, Juicy J switched things up, invoked respectability, invited a kind of derisiveness towards twerkers, and thought he would come out looking like a stand up guy.
What do you think of the feminist’s point of view? Is Juicy wrong for awarding the $50k to a woman who didn’t twerk??
The 71st annual Golden Globe Awards took place on Sunday, and star parents celebrated in sophisticated style at the GBK and Pilot Pen Luxury Gift Lounge.
At this luxe pool-side affair held at L’Ermitage Hotel in Beverly Hills, star parents like Full House alum Candace Cameron Bure, Holly Robinson Peete, actress Kym Whitley, Scandal star Joshua Molina, and Agents of Shield actress Ming-Na Wen mingled and enjoyed gifts like a 3-night stay at St. Regis Bora Bora Resort.
Celebrity Baby Scoop also attended and chatted with stars in attendance. Mom-of-three Candace Cameron Bure shared her thoughts on 2014, the awards and what’s keeping her busy right now.
What was the actress looking forward to the most for the big awards night?
“I want to see the ladies hosting! That’s what I am looking forward to the most,” she shared.
Does she have anything that she wants to change in Year 2014?
“I haven’t thought about any resolutions….I’m not a resolution kind of girl, to be honest. I just try to live my life in the way I want to every day of the year and be committed to it always.”
She went on to share what she’s been working on.
“My book just released this week,” Candace shared. “It’s called Balancing It All: My Story of Juggling Priorities and Purpose.” It sounds like a must-read for all parents!
Amidst checking out the GUARDaHEART Foundation that raises awareness of heart disease prevention, Celebrity Baby Scoop caught up with Scandal star Joshua Malina. The father-of-two, who was attending with his son, opened up about his kids.
“I have two kids,” Joshua said. “My daughter, Isabel, is about to turn sixteen, and my boy here, Avi, is about to turn twelve. My son is the athlete of the family. He’s a scholar, skater, soccer player, and currently a football player. He hasn’t caught the acting bug!”
He also shared what he loves about being a dad.
“Favorite part about being a dad? That’s hard. Being a daddy is the thing that defines me more than anything. I love all of it. I would say, as I’m here with my boy, I love just being with my kids and seeing them grow and change, and be crazy.” [laughs]
And what are his upcoming projects?
“Upcoming projects? More Scandal,” Joshua shared. ”I go back to work on Monday, as we’re halfway through season three. I also just finished a film called The Young Kieslowski, where I’ve aged into the ‘dad’ role. In this one, I’m on the verge of grandparenthood. In addition, I am about to film a pilot for TVGN—TV Guide Network, which I’m producing. It’s called Celebrity Celebrity, and it’s kind of game show-ish.”
Agents of Shield star Ming-Na Wen also stopped by to chat while checking out Sir Ike Audio’s luxury Bluetooth headphones. She shares how she balances her busy schedule while raising two kids, daughter Michaela, 13, and son Cooper, 8.
“I am a mom of two kids. I am lucky to have an amazing husband and you just have to prioritize,” the actress shared. ”Even though I’ll work fifteen hour days, even on the weekends, you just have to find the balance as best as you can. We are not alone; every working mom has to deal with it. It doesn’t matter if you are working a 9-5 job or a 5 a.m. to 10 p.m. job like I do. You just do your best and it’s really nice when you have a great partner.”

Am I the only person in the world that loves Anne Hathaway? I’ve loved her for what feels like forever and every time I see her in a new movie, I love her even more. Why do people hate her so much? What the hell am I missing? Anne is beautiful, talented and, in my opinion anyway, extremely likeable. Seriously, someone needs to explain what’s so objectionable about Anne. I just don’t see it. I mean, just look at her in these shots. Adorable. I love you, Anne – even if I am the only non-crazy person in the world.

From our friends at Mamiverse!
When the idea of homeschooling my kids was first introduced to me, I totally balked. Images of socially backwards children with big glasses and crooked teeth flooded my mind.
So you can imagine my surprise to learn that in 2007, homeschooling was on the rise, and there were more than 1.5 million children being homeschooled in America. In fact, from 2001 to 2009, a U.S. Department of Education study found that homeschooling had grown by 77 percent! Today, homeschooling has become a mainstream educational alternative.

I have never, ever, ever been a fan of pants suits. There is generally nothing attractive about them in my opinion. At least that’s the way I used to feel. Leave it to Naya Rivera to turn my whole opinion upside down. This pants suit is not just sexy, it may be one of the sexiest outfits I’ve ever seen Naya wearing. I mean, she’s just out of control hot in this thing and that makes me happy. Love, love, love this incredibly beautiful, incredibly talented young lady. There aren’t nearly enough photos of her – not by a long shot.
Name: Robert Ford Wilson
Parents: Owen Wilson & Jade Duell
Date of Birth: January 14, 2011
Siblings: he will become a big brother this year sometime
♥ Robert was born on Maui, Hawaii
♥ He weighed 6 lbs & 13 oz at birth
♥ He was named after Owen’s father
♥ His parents call him by his middle name “Ford”
♥ Robert was reportedly born via an all-natural, drug-free, water birth at Owen’s beachfront property
♥ Jade reportedly had two midwives to help her through the delivery
♥ The pregnancy was a well-kept Hollywood secret. Jade’s pregnancy wasn’t revealed until mere days before Robert’s birth
“He’s not, I wouldn’t say, a wonderful conversationalist at this point, but he kind of doesn’t have to be, he’s so cute. He becomes sort of a little scene stealer when he comes in the room. [He's like] Steve McQueen in The Magnificent Seven, where he didn’t have a lot of dialogue — you just kind of gave him the camera and he was able to hold the screen. I feel like Ford is heading in that direction.” – Owen on his then 6-week-old son.
“What they say about newborns, about [the parents] not getting a lot of sleep? That’s true. You look at every place now as a potential nap place … You’ve got to look for your chances to catch up.” – Owen on sleep deprivation.
Sorry stans. If they do decide to reunite, will you be checking for their album?
Freestyle skiing champion and family man David Wise is gearing up for the Olympic Games in Sochi, Russia. The first competitions of the Sochi Winter Games on NBC starts February 6th, and runs through February 23rd.
The halfpiper, 23, opens up to Celebrity Baby Scoop about preparing for the Olympics and some of the greatest lessons he’s learned from training. He goes on to talk about wife Alexandra, their 2-year-old daughter Nayeli, and some of his favorite bonding moments with his baby girl.
CBS: How are you preparing for the upcoming Winter Olympics in Sochi? What is your training schedule like?
DW: “My training right now is a balance of preparing for the Olympic qualifiers on skis, maintaining my strength in the gym, and spending a lot of time visualizing and thinking up new runs and combinations.”
CBS: What is your favorite part about freeskiing in the halfpipe?
DW: “I’ve loved skiing for as long as I can remember, it is fast and free, but what I like about halfpipe in particular is the weightless feeling you experience. Only in a halfpipe can you go straight up in the air, stall, and then come down and land on the same surface that you took off on. That moment, at the apex, is true weightlessness, and for a moment it feels like time stops.”
CBS: Could you tell us about your daughter Nayeli? How old is she and what does she like doing for fun?
DW: “My daughter Nayeli just turned two in October. Jumping on the trampoline is her all time favorite thing to do, but watching movies and family dance parties are close behind.”
CBS: What are some of the highlights of being a dad? Could you share any special memories?
DW: “Being a dad is an amazing experience. It is an equal share of intimidating responsibility, and overwhelming reward. I honestly didn’t know how much love I was capable of till I held my daughter for the first time.
Like any parent I am really proud of all of my daughter’s “firsts.” Her first word (which was ‘dadda’ of course), her first steps, her first phrase (‘oh my goodness’), her first time jumping on the trampoline, and recently her first time on skis, they are all experiences that I will never forget.”
CBS: Does Nayeli like skiing like her daddy? How do you bond with your daughter?
DW: “My wife Alexandra and I have taken Nayeli skiing a couple of times now, and she loves it. They are there at the bottom of a lot of my competitions, and every time Nayeli tells me that wants to go skiing. I love doing activities with my little girl, but reading her books before bedtime is still my favorite way to bond with her.”
CBS: Will Nayeli be cheering you on in Sochi this winter? If so, what does it mean for you to have her there?
DW: “Nayeli will be cheering me on, but it will be from the living room with her grandma. We decided that getting a two-year-old all the way over to Russia for three days just to take her home would be a huge hassle. My wife, my parents, my sisters, and some of my close friends are going to be there, and I know that Nayeli will be screaming, “Go DavvvviiiWwiiizzze” (what she says every time she sees a skier, whether it’s me or not) at the TV.”
CBS: What are some of the values and lessons you’ve learned from your Olympic training that you hope to teach your daughter?
DW: “My skiing career has taught me that anything is possible with perseverance. I was never the most talented at anything growing up, but I had an obsession with improving. I strive to get better every day, even if it is just a little. That mentality has brought me a long way, and I hope it is something that Nayeli learns in her life as well.”
CBS: You and your wife also lead a church youth group. How do you balance everything?
DW: “Helping out with the youth group is definitely something that my wife and I are passionate about, but we spend a lot of time on the road. Fortunately, we have some great fellow leaders that run the youth group while we are away.”
CBS: Are you planning to train and compete in the following winter Olympics as well?
DW: “I have always told myself that I will keep doing this for as long as I truly love it. Right now I am enjoying every minute of this ride, and I don’t foresee myself getting burned out in four years; so hopefully yes.”View Slideshow »»
This is my second post on Olga Kent today. That said, there is nothing left for me to say other than Goddamn! it doesn’t get much better than this! Enjoy fellas.
Simon Cowell is back in the U.K. after spending the past week in St. Barts with his pregnant girlfriend Lauren Silverman. The pair were last seen out shopping at a pharmacy on Thursday (January 9, 2013). Cameras followed them as they walked back to their private yacht.
The X Factor judge tweeted the next day, “My new year resolutions. Advise not lecture. Listen more than you talk. Happiness is more fun than anger. Forgive and not fester.”
He also said, “Always be kind to kids and animals. Your mum is mostly right. And never dread Mondays. And most people younger than you know more than you.”
According to The Daily Mirror – Cowell did not propose while on vacation.
A friend said, “Simon and Lauren have no plans to marry at the moment. They are just concentrating on the safe arrival of their unborn child for the foreseeable future. For now, children are the priority. Lauren is due to spend lots of quality time with her son Adam in the next few weeks – as she prepares for the birth of her and Simon’s child.
“Simon, meanwhile, is totally focused on becoming a dad for the first time.”
The couple are preparing for the February arrival of their baby boy by renting an apartment in Manhattan.View Slideshow »»
The worst part about my completely conflicting feelings about Reese Witherspoon? The fact that nothing at all seems to indicate how I’m going to feel about her from one day to the next. Sometimes I’ll like one certain kind of photos of her. Other days I won’t. There’s really no rhyme or reason to it. This time, I’m not crazy over Reese. She looks good but not good enough for me to really get excited over them. They’re good but they’re not great. I guess the fact that they’re at least good should count for something.

Katy Perry kicked my ass the night before last. I’ve worked a long, hard night tearing down the store I was managing over Christmas and then – boom! Out of nowhere, there’s Katy Perry and she’s enraged. I can’t remember what I said or did to make her angry but boy, was she angry. Her fists were flying, her boobs were bouncing and those eyes – I saw murder in those eyes. Then I woke up, confused and shaken. Now here I am all these days later, looking at these photos and that ass kicking is all I can think about so thank you, subconscious brain. Thanks so much for ruining Katy Perry for me. I hope you’re happy.
