It’s Grammy week here in Los Angeles, and two-time nominated comedian, actor, author, podcast host, and former “Daily Show” host Trevor Noah returns to host the 2024 Grammys. He always does the best job at this. It will be his fourth time as host of music’s biggest night. And by the way, he’s also nominated for a Grammy in the Best Comedy Album category for his 2020 Netflix comedy special “I Wish You Would.”

Now, in the meantime, there is so much stuff going on in town. They are back with all of the great stuff that goes on during this week. But I gotta tell you, the hottest story is about two of music’s biggest rap stars. I’m not sure when the feud began between Megan Thee and Nicki Minaj but honey, it heated up over the weekend as the war of words started hitting the internet.

Okay, so you probably know by now that on Friday, Meg released her latest single, “Hiss.” It’s a fierce track criticizing her haters, which fans have speculated included a line targeting Minaj. Well, Nicki Minaj fired back with an all-new diss track. The rap superstar dropped the one-off single, “Big Foot,” which she revealed in multiple posts across social media, is directly aimed at Megan Thee Stallion, and is a follow-up to the song she released on Friday.

Now, Meg mentioned Megan’s Law — the policy that requires sex offenders to register with the state — and you know, Nicki Minaj’s husband, Kenneth Petty, is a level two sex offender in New York. He actually served four years in prison after being convicted of an attempted rape. Minaj’s brother is also incarcerated for raping an 11-year-old girl. Horrible story.

But Nicki said, hey, that’s her family. She hit back with “Bigfoot” making accusations about Megan Thee Stallion, referring to her mother’s death and how she was shot in the foot by Tory Lanez in 2020. Oh, good Lord. There is just so much drama. It goes on and on and on. Lots of name-calling.

But I’m just wondering, what happened to women in the business trying to get together and support each other? Or is this just for publicity? Whoo! Whatever. Like I said, it has heated up the internet just in time for the Grammys.

Oh, and by the way, we will be there backstage and on the red carpet. You do not want to miss our coverage of the 2024 Grammys.
