Churchgoers Walk Out Of Kanye West's NYC Sunday Service

He showed up at Queen’s historic Greater Allen A.M.E. Cathedral on Sunday and shortly after the church’s typical Sunday morning service, performed his own Sunday Service, bringing in “dozens” of first-time guests in addition to Greater Allen’s usual congregation. The Daily Beastnotes that several members walked out during the performance.

Daily Beast reporter Brooke Leigh Howard turned in an unimpressed writeup, saying that “[t]he concept of ‘Sunday Service’—enlightening a younger generation through relatable music, a choir dressing to express themselves as individuals, and celebratory dancing—seems inspiring, if it wasn’t a Kanye West Experience.”

Dark Horse Comics Launches New "Stranger Things" Comic Series

Netflix has yet to announce a premiere date for STRANGER THINGS 4. But until then, Dark Horse is hoping to hold fans over with a new four-issue comic book series set in the show’s universe. The publisher has just revealed plans to launch STRANGER THINGS: INTO THE FIRE early next year. Into the Fire begins in 1984, one year before Stranger Things’ most recent season. It centers on two former Hawkins Lab test subjects who have been on the run ever since they escaped from Dr. Martin Brenner several years ago. Upon learning that the lab has shut down, they start searching for another one of Brenner’s victims, Nine. As if her destructive pyrokinetic abilities didn’t pose enough of an issue, Nine’s “shattered psyche threatens to burn them all to ashes if they can’t find her and free her from her own malevolent imagination.”
This obviously isn’t the first time that Dark Horse has played in the Stranger Things world. Last year, they kicked off Stranger Things: The Other Side, which recapped W…

FANTASIA DISCUSSES HOW ''SUBMISSION'' WILL HELP YOUR MARRIAGE ON THE BREAKFAST CLUB

This week, singer Fantasia was a guest on The Breakfast Club radio show, and the topic of marriage and prayer came up. When one of the male hosts of the show talked about waking up with his wife every morning to pray, Fantasia said, “I respect that.”  Then she said, “We need more men to stand up and lead the way. Most women are trying to be the leader. That’s why you can’t find a man, You can’t be the king in the house. Fall back and be the queen and let your man lead the way.”

When asked to explain her view, Fantasia said, “I feel like it’s a generational thing. We can go real deep on that … but it’s a generational curse and how society have placed our men. And women have to stand up and be the mother and the father and the provider and so then you so bad, so you can’t be told nothing, so that when the right man come, you lose him, because you’re trying to be the man.” She said that though the husband and wife are equals, “you have to let the man be the head of the house.” The comme…
