Justin Timberlake Responds To BET Awards Twitter Backlash
Sunday night's BET Awards were a triumph. If one were to pick out a single highlight, it would likely be actor/activist Jesse Williams' speech on racism, police brutality, and black empowerment as he received the Humanitarian Award. The speech received a standing ovation from the crowd and praise from those following the ceremony on Twitter. Among those who praised Williams was 8-time BET Award nominee Justin Timberlake. Huffington Post writer Ernest Owens had a bone to pick with JT, and he used the opportunity to call him out for misappropriation of black culture.

Outkast Turned Down An Opportunity To Perform At The 2004 Super Bowl
The New England Patriots narrowly defeated the Carolina Panthers in Super Bowl XXXVIII, but no one remembers that. All that anyone outside New England remembers from that Super Bowl is when Justin Timberlake accidentally-on-purpose ripped of Janet Jackson's shirt and bared her titty for all of Earth to see. The "wardrobe malfunction" could have been prevented, if Outkast had accepted the NFL's invitation to perform at that year's Super Bowl.

Charts Don’t Lie: March 31
This week we were extremely impressed by the numbers that Justin Timberlake pulled with his new album, The 20/20 Experience. Within the hip-hop/r’n’b-sphere, we haven’t seen a chart topper sell the amount JT sold in a while. The artist pulled in 980k, which funnily enough takes away a record from Lil Wayne, who happens to also have a new album that released this past week. Wayne previously held the high-selling

Screen King Immortal: 10 Times 50 Cent Was Name-Dropped In Film & TV
For a while there, in the mid-2000s, 50 Cent was the most visible hip hop star in the country. To this day, he's the only rapper that my 86-year-old grandma can name. Such was his prominence that if you were writing a script for a television show or movie and needed shorthand for "a gangster rapper who everyone knows," odds are you'd pick him. Perfectly fitting the bill for the street-affiliated, unfuckwithable image popularized by '90s legends Tupac and Biggie, Fif also had a dash of showmanship that made him a little less intimidating to the general public.
