Welcome back to Don't Alert The Stans!
For this week’s episode, proceedings begin with BET who have announced that in light of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the 2020 BET Awards will still go ahead as planned but virtually.
The contentious Tekashi 6ix9ine has made headlines once again. This time he’s lashing out against Billboard, claiming that Justin Bieber and Ariana Grande implemented devious methods to secure the No.1 spot with their duet ‘Stuck With You’.
Doja Cat’s character has been seriously called into question, after a series of videos and screenshots have surfaced appearing to link her with alt-right and white supremacist chatrooms.
Rounding up the episode is Lana Del Rey, who has endured severe backlash in the wake of an IG post where she went on a racially motivated rant against black female artists. She claims the likes of Cardi B, Beyonce, Nicki Minaj, Kehlani and others are being treated with more grace than she is for how they navigate sexuality and femininity in their work.
