Logan Paul Should Really Work On Being More Self-Aware

And log off in the meantime

YouTuber Logan Paul is currently on an apology tour for filming an apparent suicide victim’s body. After taking a break from vlogging for less than a month, he appeared on Good Morning America this week to say that he is sorry.

“I’m a good guy who made a bad decision,” Logan explained.

This has been, to be honest with you, the hardest time of my life. I haven’t been hated by the whole world…and it’s definitely something to overcome. I will think twice in the future about what I post—probably three times. This was a horrible lapse of judgment. I can, will and am going to learn from it and be a better person.

That part about thinking twice about what he posts? A lie. Just yesterday, rapper Cardi B posted a picture of herself from the Grammy Awards that took place on Sunday. Her caption, borrowed from Kanye West’s “I Don’t Like,” reads: “They trinna crucify me like they did Christ.” Paul, unprompted, commented underneath: “lawlz u telling me.”


There are a couple of things wrong with this. For one, he’s comparing himself, a white male, to that of someone who is marginalized and worked extremely hard to get to where she is. One is in no way like the other. Secondly, he seems to be playing the victim, which he absolutely is not. What he did was abominable, and he deserves every single nail that’s being hammered into his career right now.

The apology tour he’s on right now is more like a feel sorry for me tour, which we refuse to do. He should be held accountable for his actions and recognize that, when you’re on a public platform, you won’t be able to get away with doing, saying, or typing idiotic, insensitive things. Until then, logging off—maybe indefinitely?—sounds like a good idea.

Along with

Showtime just ordered a pilot episode of Casallina "Cathy" Kisakye's comedy anthology series, which will be executive-produced by Lena Waithe. The show, called How to Make Love to a Black Woman (Who May Be Working Through Some Shit), sounds like it'll be... informative.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, though the series is a comedy, it will also touch on some vulnerable subjects as well. It described the show as being about "connection and rejection that explore our most harrowing—and harrowingly comic—sexual secrets." Waithe said in a statement about the news, "Cathy's script is haunting, funny, and extremely vulnerable—it's the kind of script that doesn't come around very often." She continues, showing her excitement for the project: "I'm honored that Cathy trusts me with such a special project. I can't wait for the world to see it."

Kisakye, who previously worked with Waithe on The Chi, says that the show is close to her heart, and that the series will portray three-dimensional, complex women. "With How to Make Love, I'm thrilled to tell stories about the women I know, who are complicated, passionate, resilient, and relatable," she said in a statement.

Kisakye is the creator of the show, and will be writing the pilot script. It's the latest project to come to Showtime through Waithe's first-look deal and, according to The Hollywood Reporter, should it go to series, this would be the first anthology for the network.

While the song should serve as a reminder to your exes

Just a day after dropping new single "Nunya," featuring Dom Kennedy, Kehlani has released the winter-wonderland visuals to go along with. The singer, NYLON November cover star, and mother-to-be rocks some of the best winter 'fits I've seen in a while, including a glorious puffer jacket that could double as a down comforter that I absolutely need in my life right now.

Kehlani is clearly living her best life up in some snow-filled forest hideaway, vibing on the beach at sunset and sipping on something bubbly as she coolly reminds nosy exes that who she's with is "nunya business." There's not much of a story line (unlike her recent "Nights Like This" video); the main takeaway is that Kehlani is busy dancing through a forest, missing no one and chilling amongst people who are clearly not the subjects of the song.

Kehlani is only two short months away from bringing baby Adeya into the world, who she thanked for helping her get through the video process. "Shot that 7 months pregnant in da snow..." Kehlani wrote on Twitter, adding, "thank u baby for da motivation, mommy was FROZE."

Even from the womb, Adeya has been hustling hard alongside her momma. Twitter user @ODtheMC pointed out that this is already her second music video appearance, and she's not even been born.

Get some mulled wine ready and escape into Kehlani's winter getaway, below. Stay tuned for her forthcoming mixtape, While We Wait, out on February 22.
