It's been an eventful week for celebrities, from Blac Chyna's mom going on a transphobic rant against Caitlyn Jenner to La La Anthony speaking on going nude for Power.

See what some of your favorite famous faces had to say below:

  1. La La Anthony talks going topless on Power:

    “Let me say I was happy I was in Italy when it came on,. I’m glad I wasn’t as aware of all the talk that happened. I saw it. Here’s the situation, and I’m glad we’re talking about this, I want to address this once and for all. First of all, the problem is people don’t know how to separate La La from LaKeisha. That’s my character on Power, my character on Power is currently in a relationship with Tommy. When you’re in a relationship with someone, you have sex with them. You take your top off, you don’t have sex fully clothed – 50 [Cent] showed his stuff! At some point, it’s gonna come to everybody. I’m no different. I’m an actor.”

  2. Jada Pinkett-Smith admits to being a drug dealer when she met Tupac:

    “When we first met, I was a drug dealer. I won’t get into the details of it ‘cause I’m going to write a book about it, but that’s how we started, then as I was coming out, something very bad happened to me — as I was coming out of that life, he was going more into the life.”

  3. Here’s how Issa Rae reacted to being snubbed by the Emmys:

    "It would have been great for the exposure of the show but I was over it after a minute. We really stand behind this second season. We're so excited about it and, you know, it just motivates us to work harder next year to get noticed."

  4. Columbus Short says Kerry Washington confronted him about his drug addiction on set:

    "Kerry yanked my coat tails a couple times. [She would say] 'Pull it together,' basically. We're in a high-powered, high-octane situation."

  5. John Boyega isn’t a Game of Thrones fan:

    “There are no Black people in Game of Thrones. You don’t see one Black person in Lord of the Rings. I ain’t paying money to always see one type of person on-screen.”

  6. Larenz Tate encourages men to go see Girls Trip:

    “It may be labeled a ‘chick flick’ but it really isn’t. I always encourage guys to see this movie. Your girl goes on a trip, there’s things that might happen, there’s definitely things she’s going to see. If you kind of want to know what happens on a girl’s trip, this is the movie.”

  7. Sheryl Underwood goes off about white woman who was killed by police:

    “If had been anybody else, ‘Well, you’re holding a phone, well the phone was silver and it looked like a gun.’ Here was a woman walking out toward the police car — now a lot of us know — we don’t walk out toward the police car, why? Because I’m always the suspect, so I’m not walking toward you at all.”

  8. Brian Michael Smith talks why he waited to come out as transgender:

    "I'd been doing it since I was younger, and was out there and performing, but I really wasn't having the real experiences, so I was trying to figure out what would it take for me to do that. When I got into my training, I realized that you really had to bring all of yourself to your roles. And you have to create the roles with your experience to inform what you're doing."

  9. Blac Chyna's mother goes on transphobic rant against Caitlyn Jenner:

    "Did that motherf*cking n*gga, Caitlyn Jenner, aka Brucey, yeah big balls little d*ck him. This motherf*ckin n*gga, cus he's a man. Dressing up and pretending to be a woman. You gonna lie and say you don't know Blac Chyna. N*gga you was walking around switching in the park with me, you f*cking f*ggot. Call me b*tch I got some words for you a**."

  10. Watch Tiffany Haddish share her opinion on Remy Ma and Nicki Minaj’s feud:

    “Sometimes, you don’t even have a freaking clue why. You know Nicki came out with that stuff to Remy and Remy was like I am in jail why you even saying that and she came back at her, but really Nicki issue is you probably a better rapper than me. OK, so let me teach you how to be better instead of just talking mess, like me teach you.”

  11. Queen Latifah weighs in on appearing with Remy Ma during her Summer Jam performance:

    “I didn’t really care. Like I said, I didn’t know it was all of us, so I didn’t even really think about that. People can think and say whatever they want to say. This wasn’t really a moment for all of that. This was a moment for us and for hip-hop.”
