Published

Roommates, we have to give a round of applause to Candace Parker for making history as the first female basketball player to appear on the cover of the popular video game NBA 2K.

According to ESPN, she will be on the cover of NBA 2K22 in celebration of the WNBA’s 25th anniversary. The game is scheduled to drop on September 10th.

The Chicago Sky forward spoke about the historical moment and said, “I grew up a video game fanatic, that’s what I did, to the point where my brothers would give me the fake controller when I was younger where I think I was playing and I wasn’t. I grew up a video game fanatic, that’s what I did, to the point where my brothers would give me the fake controller when I was younger where I think I was playing and I wasn’t.”

She continued, “I think when you’re young and experience these type of things, you’re onto the next thing. As I’ve gotten older, I’ve really savored the moment.”

Prior to the news about her landing the cover of NBA 2K, Candace also celebrated landing the cover of Slam Magazine. She said, “Growing up a hooper, Slam cover cutouts were always on my wall. This is a dream come true!! I respect the game and never take for granted these moments.”

Candace, who is the first overall pick during the 2008 WNBA Draft, will join the likes of Luka Doncic, who was named as the cover athlete for the game’s regular edition, and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Dirk Nowitzki, and Kevin Durant, who were named as cover athletes for the NBA’s 75th anniversary edition.

Dolly Parton Talks I Will Always Love You Song Royalties

“I thought this was great.”

“I bought my big office complex down in Nashville. So I thought, ‘Well, this is a wonderful place to be,'” Parton said.

“I bought a property down in what was the Black area of town, and it was mostly just Black families and people that lived around there,” she continued.

“It was off the beaten path from 16th Avenue and I thought, ‘Well, I am gonna buy this place — the whole strip mall.’ And I thought, ‘This is the perfect place for me to be,’ considering it was Whitney.”

Parton did just that and she welcomed the Black community there with open arms.

“I thought this was great,” she said. “I’m just gonna be down here with her people, who are my people as well.”

“So I just love the fact that I spent that money on a complex and I think, ‘This is the house that Whitney built.’”

According to Forbes, Parton made about $10 million in royalties from “I Will Always Love You,” and she’s still cashing in on the classic song to this day.

Billie Eilish Said She’s Not Happy With Her Body

“I see people online, looking like I’ve never looked.”

“I see people online, looking like I’ve never looked. And immediately I am like, oh my God, how do they look like that?” Eilish shared.

The “Lovely” singer admitted that it’s hard for her not to compare herself to others.

“I still see it and go, oh God, that makes me feel really bad,” Eilish explained. “And I mean, I’m very confident in who I am, and I’m very happy with my life.”

“I’m obviously not happy with my body but who is?” she added.

However, performing onstage in baggy clothes has helped Eilish to “disassociate from the ideas [that she has] of [her] body.”

“I wear clothes that are bigger and easier to move in without showing everything — they can be really unflattering,” she said. “In pictures, they look like, I don’t even know what. I just completely separate the two.”

“I have such a terrible relationship with my body, like you would not believe,” Eilish added, “so I just have to disassociate.”

Eilish doesn’t know how beautiful she is. I hope one day she realizes how amazing her features are.

Aaliyah’s Uncle Barry Hankerson Is Reviving His Old Record Label As ‘Blackground Records 2.0’ (Exclusive)

TSR Exclusive: Barry Hankerson, the man who brought us talents including his niece, the late Aaliyah, is reviving his old record label Blackground Records rebranded as Blackground Records 2.0.

Multiple streets were shut down in Atlanta Saturday as the first lady of Blackground Records 2.0, Autumn Marini, shot her first video ahead of the label’s launch.

Barry spoke exclusively to The Shade Room to talk about the rebirth of his label–which gave us Timbaland’s “Shock Value II” in 2009 before a more than 10-year hiatus–and bragged on his new artist who he says can’t be compared to any artist out.

Barry tells us he moved Blackground to Atlanta, where he has been meeting so many talented artists who couldn’t find a way to get their music out. This inspired him to bring Blackground back as Blackground Records 2.0 and do what they do, which he says is to push young artists.

“It’s a good time to promote young talent,” Barry said.

He was especially taken by Autumn Marini, who he says has the whole package and can’t be compared to other artists, past or present as she’s in her own lane.

“She’s beautiful, she writes her own songs,” Barry bragged. “I couldn’t resist working with her. I couldn’t resist working for her”

He continued, “She’s totally her own artist. She’s very original.”

Barry added that Autumn Marini’s newest project will be an “explosive album.” “It’s an incredible piece of work,” he said.

Blackground Records is responsible for finding some of our other faves including Tank and Jojo, as well as Toni Braxton’s “Libra” album, which featured her hit single, “Please.”

Are you here for the rebirth of Blackground Records 2.0? Let us know!
