Welcome back to Don't Alert the Stans!
After an unintentional hiatus due to technical difficulties, Sope, Nic and Eden are back to deliver another entertaining episode. A #RespectingLegends celebration of Brandy kicks off this week’s proceedings as Sope highlights the 25th anniversary of Brandy’s self-titled album and her vast influence on modern R&B music.
Opening the news section is the announcement that the BRIT Awards will potentially axe gendered categories for their 2021 ceremony on-wards to accommodate non-binary artists like Sam Smith who has now decided to be referred to by they/them.
The fallout from Lizzo accusing a Postmates employee of stealing her food continues as it comes out that the employee in question is now fearing for her life and is afraid to leave her house. Eden proceeds to put her blast claiming that she has a penchant to work against black women.
Remy Ma is once again in hot water for being a rape apologist and patriarchal princess after likening rape victims who accept compensation to prostitutes. Rounding out the episode is the news that Jennifer Lopez and Shakira will be headlining the Superbowl Halftime Show in 2020.
