Morning Wood: A Recap Of Last Week’s Tea: Ariana Grande’s “7 Rings” Backlash, RENT Live Rehearsal, Hot Guys Fight Over Collin Martin’s Attention On Late Live Tinder

Morning Wood: A Recap Of Last Week's Tea: Ariana Grande's

The controversies surrounding Ariana Grande‘s “7 Rings“, Late Live Tinder with soccer player Collin Martin on Late Late Show with James Corden showcases some of the hottest guys, and Rent on Fox rehearsal video shows talented diverse cast. These are just some of the things that made us even gayer this past week here on Morning Wood.


So Ariana dropped her new single “7 Rings” with accompanying music video and boy it’s immediately met with backlash. In the now deleted video, alternative hip-hop rapper Princess Nokia took to Instagram and Twitter to accuse the pop songstress of copying her flow on her song “Mine” which is about telling people to basically keep their curiosity by themselves and not asking black women if their hair is weave or not.

The rapper pointed this out since it somewhat resembles the idea of where Ariana raps “You like my hair? Gee thanks, just bought it.“. Princess Nokia ended her statement with “Sounds about white.” suggesting that Ms. Grande is appropriating black culture.

Ariana Grande has since apologized about this. In an Instagram post, she said:

#ArianaGrande stepped into #TheShadeRoom to apologize if her response came across the wrong way and thanks everyone for opening the conversation

But it does not end there. Another rapper accused Ariana of copying. Soulja Boy Tell ‘Em tweeted:


The “Crank That” rapper was referring to his song “Pretty Boy Swag” which weirdly does have a similar flow with the chorus of “7 Rings“. He even told the singer “You’re a thief“. The drama continues while all these people involved are getting the publicity as the single is about to blow up the charts.

Rent on Fox is kicking with its promotions as it nears its showing date on January 27th. The cast includes Tinashe, Valentina, Brennin Hunt, Jordan Fisher, Vanessa Hudgens, Kiersey Clemons, Mario, and Keala Settle. Watch a short clip of the rehearsal here:

Handsome soccer player Collin Martin made news when he came out 8 months ago. And now, he’s ready to take on James Corden‘s Late Live Tinder where he was presented a bunch of attractive boys which he would either swipe right if he likes him or swipe left if otherwise. Just like Tinder, only done live. Hence the freaking name. Here are some of the men Collin had a pleasure of choosing.

Starting the game with this cutie Mike. Collin liked him instantly and became the first out of the 3 finalists.


He was followed by Nir who James joked about being associated with a band because of his rockstar looks.


Cutie pie Josh came to win Collin’s heart but he failed.


Happy looking Trevor made it to the final 3.


A very attractive Connor came out and he was instantly a hit, completing Collin’s top 3. But there were two more guys.


So James gave Collin a chance to dump any guys he already picked for his top 3 just in case he is going to like the remaining 2 guys who have to come out yet. Then this hot guy Navaris came out which may have confused Collin. Just look at those pecs. But Collin was not impressed that much.


And finally, the dreamy Jeff came out but Collin did not really want to give up his final 3 so he was swiped left.


So the athlete was left with 3 guys. Connor from Massachusetts who is a video editor and a musician, Trevor from Rhode Island who is a professional dancer, and Mike from New Jersey who is a writer.


But without hesitations, Collin ultimately chose Connor (I mean, who’s not gonna go after this hunk?) and they went for a cute simple date backstage.

When asked by James, they decided that they are going to see each other again. They’re going to make a lovely couple if they end up being together.

But if you were Collin, who’s going to be your top 3? Who would you end up choosing ultimately? Let us know i the comments below!
