The Ayesha Curry malarky is just that. Steph's wedded wife faced a ton of unwarranted criticism this past for simply showing herself to be humanly susceptible to jealous insecurities. No big deal, she's in a better place for having admitted to pining for some of the attention her adoring husband garners from the opposite sex.
husband. Nevertheless, Rockets looking for an edge over the surging Golden State Warriors were in no mood to placate those feelings. One in particular resorted to blowing up a meme he'd created of James Harden and Steph Curry's at the marriage altar. The Twitter user did just as he was told, converting the meme into a lifesize poster, which he then brought to Game 6 of the Rockets-Warriors series at the Toyota Center - live and direct.
Unfortunately for #GreekFraud as the trolling fan refers to himself online, the Rockets' couldn't leverage his support into a victory. Thanks to the open touches created by Kevin Durant's calf injury (shoutout to Knicks' fans), Steph Curry was able to garner more of the spotlight. Certainly, Steph's 33 points stick out on the boxscore - all produced within the 2nd half of action, as he'd gone 0-5 in the first before splashing water on his face during the intermission.
Coincidentally, that's exactly the point in which the Rockets' James Harden ran himself cold. Call it what you want: Karma, a foreseeable result, what have you; if the Rockets believed they were within inches of besting the Warriors last postseason, they have another thing coming in the final years of Chris Paul's max deal.
Selena Gomez Praises The "Beautiful Spirit That Is Oprah" For Inspiring Others To Be Better
“Thank you for continually inspiring us to be kinder, greater and stretching all the boundaries for the better.”
Selena Gomez was one of the many Hollywood entertainers that attended yesterday’s Empowerment in Entertainment gala hosted by The Hollywood Reporter. Selena was a presenter at the gala and after the event, she took to Instagram to share a sweet message about one of the fellow attendees, Oprah, thanking her for her courageous efforts that never go unnoticed.
The “I Can’t Get Enough” singer started off her note by speaking so highly of the students who were at the event, who had been selected for the new Young Executive Fellowship Program.
“I had the honor to meet some of the brightest students who might never have imagined a career in Hollywood as they were given the opportunity to go to college and work with mentors in the industry,” Selena wrote of the young adults.

“Thank you to the most courageous, brave, intellectual, strong, beautiful spirit that is Oprah for caring so much about empowering all walks of life but more importantly for being the action and not just standing behind the word,” she added.
“You DO it. Thank you for continually inspiring us to be kinder, greater and stretching all the boundaries for the better. “From everyone to whom much has been given, much will be required.””
Aaron Carter Says He Endured A Michael Jackson "Experience" In His Youth
Regardless of what transpired between them, Aaron Carter refused to speak ill of Michael Jackson.
Aaron Carter gave a surprising answer when asked whether he thought Michael Jackson’s documentary deserved to be pulled from HBO’s rotation. The former child star hesitated before getting into it but eventually told the TMZ field reporter that stood before him, that he himself had a run-in with Michael Jackson in his younger days.

“To be honest, after seeing everyone’s story unfold, I was a little aggressive when I talked about it at first. I mean, everyone has their own stories and everyone has their own situations so I can’t really take away from that,” he told TMZ, “In regards to that situation, I actually have my own experience that happened with Michael, so I’mma be talking about that in the future.”
But that’s where the subject stopped dead in its tracks, as Aaron Carter refused to provide much if any context regarding what went down between him and MJ. It would appear that part of the decision to hold back on telling the story revolves around the fact he still holds Jackson in high regard.
He told the TMZ reporter that “it’s appropriate to put my story about my experience with Michael,” and that no matter the circumstances, he’d always “have his back, though.” Check out the “interview” at your own discretion down below.
Michael Jackson "Leaving Neverland" Doc Seemingly Removed From HBO
A key component in James Safechuck’s story has been proven impossible.
Earlier this month, the director of the documentary detailing Michael Jackson’s alleged history of sexual abuse, Dan Reed, admitted that James Safechuck’s story doesn’t exactly add up. After Leaving Neverland aired on HBO, a renewed interest in Michael Jackson’s past forced the Jackson family to speak out, defending the late pop star. When people started to express doubt in both Wade Robson and James Safechuck’s stories, a more thorough investigation was made into the timelines that both accusers provided in their interviews. Safechuck alleges that he was abused between 1988 and 1992, saying that one of the incidents took place at the Neverland Train Station. However, the train station was only built in 1993. After Dan Reed pulled a U-turn on his personal stance, it seems HBO may be having second thoughts too.

As reported by HipHopDX, it appears as though HBO has discontinued airing their Leaving Neverland documentary even though the last re-run was supposed to play in September. As of today, the final scheduled airing for the Michael Jackson doc is April 17, meaning that HBO likely had a change of heart, choosing to stop associating themselves with the product. Oprah Winfrey is also reportedly distancing herself from Leaving Neverland, deleting her After Neverland interviews from her personal YouTube page. They can still be found on HBO, though.
Do you think that the creators of the documentary should have done a more thorough check into what the accusers were saying before it aired?
