A few hours ago, Donald Trump turned himself in at the Fulton County jail and immediately bonded out, but not before getting his mugshot taken.

Earlier in the day, he got rid of Drew Findling, who had been representing him in his RICO case, and has now retained Steve Sadow, the lawyer who represented Gunna in his own RICO case (and got him released after taking the Alford plea).

Seven years after they filed, Halley Berry and Olivier Martinez have now finalized their divorce. The couple will share custody of their nine-year-old son, Maceo Martinez.

Here’s the kicker: Olivier will receive $8,000 in child support and 4.3% of all Halle’s earnings over $2 million. Mind you, Halle is responsible for 100% of Maceo’s tuition, extracurricular activities, insurance, and uninsured expenses.

We missed TBT last week, so you know what that means: We get two picks this week.

The music gods must’ve been having a laugh when they took not one but TWO icons from us on another icon’s birthday, but it is a reality with which we must now live. Yesterday was Madonna’s 65th birthday, so how about one from her catalog?

In February of 1989, the Queen of Pop released “Like a Prayer” as the lead single from her fourth album (of the same). The song’s meaning has been source of debate. Is Madonna singing about prayer or giving head? One line-by-line read of the song’s lyrics should clear that up.

It’s about secks, y’all.

The slightly ambiguous lyrics combined with the gospel-esque production leaves just enough room for plausible deniability. If Madonna went around calling herself a genius because of this one song, I’d allow it.

Madge might’ve gotten away with the song as is, but the video is where she got people mad. With strong racial themes, including burning crosses and a wrongly arrested Black man, it was all a little too much for 1989 audiences. Not to mention, she cast Leon Robinson as a Black saint, who she ends up making out with. Most people assumed he was supposed to be Jesus (the horror!), and Christian groups around the world were losing it. Even Pope John Paul II got involved, calling on people to boycott Pepsi, which had an endorsement deal with Madonna at the time — in fact, “Like a Prayer” was first heard in a Pepsi commercial.

The “Live a Prayer” video was banned by most TV stations (with MTV being a notable exception) and Pepsi eventually caved, ending the partnership with Madonna. However, she got to keep $5 million she had been.

“Like a Prayer” would become Madonna’s seventh No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 and topped the charts across the globe. All in all, she won.

Yesterday marked five years since we lost the Queen of Soul, so it’s only right that we honor her memory with a lookback at signature hit, “Respect.”

Originally performed by Otis Redding in 1965, the song is about a man who doesn’t feel like he’s getting enough respect from his ol’ lady. This version, which credits Redding as its sole writer, is actually not the first version of the song, which is said to have been a ballad. The writer of that original version remains a bit of a mystery, but Otis Redding rewrote its lyrics and upped the tempo to create his version.

The Otis Redding version of “Respect” would become a top 40 hit in the US and one of the biggest songs of his career. And then came the Aretha Franklin version.

In 1967, the Queen of Soul would cover the song but rearrange it so drastically that it basically sounded like an entirely new song. Curiously, Jerry Wexler is credited as the song’s producer, but every account of how it went down says all of the ideas for the rearrangement came from Aretha and her sisters, Erma and Carolyn. Aretha also played the piano on her cover of the song.

This overhaul of an established (and recent) recording would become a trend in the music business, and in many ways, pioneered what we now call remixing.

Aretha Franklin’s version of “Respect” would go on to become her first No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 and earn her two Grammy Awards for Best R&B Recording and Best R&B Solo Vocal Performance in 1968. The song would also become a feminist and civil rights anthem, and quite frankly, one of the most iconic and recognizable songs of all time.

Long live the Queen of Soul.

Remember The Blind Side? That cringe-inducing movie that won Sandra Bullock an Oscar in 2009? It turns out the “true” story it was based on was actually a lie.

Former NFL player Michael Oher (portrayed by Quinton Aaron in the movie) says the version of his life events we see on the big screen are not factual. He says the “benevolent” couple, Sean and Leigh Anne Tuohy, who adopted him actually never did — he claims they tricked him into a conservatorship.

In a petition filed in court yesterday, Oher accuses the couple of exploiting him and says that he only just found out SIX MONTHS AGO that the documents presented to him as adoption papers were actually a petition to appoint them as his conservators, which gave them control over his ability to enter contracts despite the fact that he was over 18, able-bodied and of sound mind. This allowed the couple to negotiate with Fox when The Blind Side was being produced.

This NASTY couple allegedly negotiated for $225,000 and 2.5% of all future earnings for themselves and their kids while leaving Oher out of it. The move would go on to gross over $309 million at the box office.

Oher is seeking to end the conservatorship and is asking for damages. He also wants an accounting of proceeds from all contracts negotiated on his behalf.

The Tuohys have since responded through their attorney, who claims Oher tried to shake them down for $15 million and threatened to go to the press if they didn’t pay up. They also claim that they didn’t trick him into the conservatorship.

Popular Twitch streamer Kai Cenat was arrested yesterday in NYC after his fans started rioting. He and another streamer, Fanum, told fans to meet them at Union Square for a giveaway, where items like PlayStation 5s and gift cards up for grabs. However, according to multiple reports, the giveaway never happened.

An estimated 7,000 came to the location where the giveaway was supposed to happen and things got chaotic, with fans vandalizing buildings and vehicles. At least 66 of them were arrested.

According to authorities, Kai will be charged with inciting a riot and unlawful assembly, among other charges. The 21-year-old was released from jail today shortly after midnight.

Last week marked 30 years since Mariah Carey released the lead single from what would become her best-selling album, Music Box.

It’s not uncommon for people to name “Honey” or even “Fantasy” as turning points in Mariah’s career, but there’s a strong case to be made for “Dreamlover.”

Written by the singer herself and Dave Hall, the song was the most prominent sign that the Long Island native was not just a fan of hip-hop but https://youtu.be/CqBtS6BIP1E

Lizzo is being sued by three former dancers — Arianna Davis, Crystal Williams and Noelle Rodriguez — who claim they experienced a number of workplace violations while working for her, including sexual harassment, false imprisonment and interference with prospective economic advantage. All three women were contestants on Lizzo’s ‘Watch Out for the Big Grrrls.’

The lawsuit names Lizzo (born Melissa Viviane Jefferson); her production company, Big Grrrl Big Touring, Inc.; and her dance captain, Shirlene Quigley, as the defendants. A number of accusations made are specifically directed at the singer. They claim they felt forced to attend nude shows while on the road in Paris and Amsterdam, and felt they’d lose their job if they didn’t. They also claim the singer goaded them to touch the dancers while in Amsterdam.

The suit also alleges that Lizzo accused them of drinking of the job and would routinely threaten to fire them. They also claim she made them re-audition for their spots in rehearsals that would last for hours. One of them claims she peed on herself onstage because she was scared to take a break.

One of the plaintiffs, Davis, accuses Lizzo of using her weight gain against her when criticizing her performance — despite knowing she had an eating disorder. Davis also accuses Quigley of forcing her Christian beliefs on her, calling her a “non-believer.”

Lizzo has not commented on the suit.

Actor Angus Cloud, best known for playing Fezco on HBO’s Euphoria, has passed away. The cause of death has not been made public, but in a statement to TMZ, his family said:

“Last week, he buried his father and intensely struggled with this loss. The only comfort we have is knowing Angus is now reunited with his dad, who was his best friend. Angus was open about his battle with mental health and we hope that his passing can be a reminder to others that they are not alone and should not fight this on their own in silence.”

Angus was 25 years old.

Between his first public statement since his headline-making health scare and rumors about him being cloned, Jamie Foxx is being talked about a lot these days. Not to mention, his Netflix movie They Cloned Tyrone has been unanimously lauded as a masterpiece.

Seeing the multi-hyphenate in the news had me thinking about all the music he’s given us — and how he continues the R&B tradition of keeping his best work as album cuts, never to be heard by the casual fan. That’s right, “Blame It” (featuring T-Pain) is not nearly his best.

His breakthrough album, Unpredictable, is probably mostly remembered for its biggest single, the title track. However, real R&B fans know that album’s brightest moments were all on album cuts.

“Heaven,” the album’s 14th track, is a beautiful piano-driven ballad about Jamie Foxx’s daughter, Corinne. In a 2005 interview with NPR, he said:

Well, I’ll tell you, the “Heaven Will Never Be The Same” was because I didn’t know if my daughter was going to be, you know, born with complications or things like that. And the way it came to me was that there was a angel in heaven watching the plight of this couple try to have a kid, and it was God’s favorite little angel, and one day, God calls a roll call, and she doesn’t answer. And what she had done was she snuck down to Earth to bless this couple with a child, and that child is, in a sense, my daughter. And so that’s why I wrote the tune from–I wrote it from that spirit.

The song was co-written by the singer and Durrell Babbs, and produced by Tim Pierce and (you wouldn’t believe it) Babyface. Yes, that’s three straight weeks where Mr. Edmonds had a part in creating the TBT selection. Truly the GOAT.

If you’re not familiar with this gem, you’re welcome. Below is a live rendition performed on AOL Music Sessions.
