As we draw closer to the end of the first season of EMPIRE, the show’s star Terrence Howard is speaking up about utlizing the n-word on the show.
During a recent appearance on Access Hollywood Live, Howard explained how his character ‘Lucious Lyons’ is a Black version of Archie Bunker (i.e. racist, bigoted, homophobic) and he weighs in on why he feels using the n-word on EMPIRE could be a means a defusing racism.
For the record, Howard’s view differs from costar Taraji P. Henson, who has said publicly that she’s against the of the word, but he feels it’s time to get real. The Oscar nominee wants to drop the stigma surrounding the word which he believes would make the Lee Daniels hip-hop drama feel more authentic.
I believe, if we’re gonna really tackle racism… If we’re gonna tackle bigotry, if we’re gonna tackle homophobia — we need to tackle it dead on.
Since ‘n*gga’ is used in almost every conversation in most Black neighborhoods why is it that we don’t hear it on TV anymore? Are white people afraid of it? Did they create the word? But if this is something that we use on a daily basis, then let’s address what it REALLY means?
Interesting… what DOES the n-word mean exactly? Howard explains his take on it in the video below… Continue Reading…

During the episode, Claudia sought advice from a few professionals, like Gary With Da Tea and standup veteran Luenell and she even made a list of bullet points. But when Jordan attempted to try out a few jokes at Atlanta’s Uptown Comedy club in front of an audience of one (they had to fit background character Demetria McKinney in somehow), Jordan proved she’s not too entertaining.
What’s even worse is that I feel like Claudia’s new ‘storyline’ was basically created to clean up her previous attempts at stand-up. If you recall, she feels offensive jokes like saying she can’t see dark-skinned Black people at night, her segment on Jamie Foxx’s show referring to Tameka ‘Tiny’ Cottle as a ‘waste of light skin’, and comparing Black men to ‘monkeys’ are all hilarious.

You may have heard by now that the courts awarded over $7.4 million to Marvin Gaye’s family for their claims Pharell and Robin Thicke stole “Blurred Lines” from Marvin’s hit “Got To Give It Up,” and their win is prompting other producers to speak up about their stolen works.
There’s no question that music from the past ‘inspires’ other songs, and Jermaine Dupri should know… being that the 42-year-old has co-written and/or co-produced No. 1 hits such as Carey’s “We Belong Together” and “Always Be My Baby,” Usher‘s “Burn” and Monica’s “The First Night.”
That being said, the legendary producer recently shared his take on the ‘Blurred Lines’ lawsuit and in doing so… managed to blast Ciara‘s ‘I Bet’ as a rip off of a song he co produced, Usher’s ‘You got it Bad’ !
