asi: feuds

My EXCLUSIVE interview with one of IMVU’s most prominent young stars of the porn community, affectionately referred to by friends and fans as “The Queen”. Here is PART ONE of my one-on-one interview with Majesty. (@queenmajestyvu). We talk about it all. The rise to popularity. The scandals. The feuds. Reader discretion is advised.

Muse: So, here we are.

Majesty: Here we are lol

Muse: I have to say… I’ve been wanting to interview you for my magazine for quite some time - but I was hoping to do it under different circumstances.

Majesty: Yeah, ik. I’m glad to finally sit down with you.

Muse: Thanks. So - let’s just jump right into it. I will tell you upfront that I will interview you just like I would interview anyone else. You do not have to answer all of my questions but please be aware that some of my questions will be personal. You have every right to choose not to comment on certain things, but I will ask that you answer honestly, candidly, and let me know right now if anything is off limits.

Majesty: Of course - ask me anything. 

Muse: Ask you anything huh? Now you’re my kind of guest! So. First question. 

Now, I know that you initially became known in the imvu AP community as a dancer, correct?

Majesty: You know it ^-^

Muse: Mhm. You were associated with some of the most popular clubs of the time. Your resume is kinda mindblowing. Daddy’s Diamonds, Snatch, Moulin Rouge, for which you were awarded the “Sparkling Diamond” award which was the highest honor for a dancer at the time. Where is the trophy?

Majesty: On my desk, next to my wine, at the Lowlife Entertainment headquarters LOL

Muse: So tell me how do you go from model, to dancer, to pornstar? and why did you choose adult entertainment? 

Majesty: Well, I was very excited to get my AP badge at the time and I have always loved…expressing my sexuality so. It just seemed like a natural fit. Also, even when I was modeling creators would always ask me to model their AP outfits so…I guess that just sort of put me in the path to keep exploring the AP community on imvu.

Muse: Interesting. So. You’ve won the Sparkling Diamond award. Highest honor for a dancer at the club you were at. What do you do? Like where do you go from there?

Majesty: I retired. Like it was becoming way too competitive for my tastes and tbh the sense of sisterhood at the club was fading so…I figured that after winning that award, I should bow out gracefully and let the up-and-coming dancers shine. Also, I wanted to make my own room and have my own space to entertain if I wanted to or to just chill with friends. So I created P.A.W.G.

Muse: I remember you being nervous about making your first public room. Why?

Majesty: Well, at the time, there just weren’t that many girls  who had popular AP rooms, and I got a lot of hate from the male room owners at the time so i hid my room and closed it for months and just room hopped.

Muse: Wow, hard to believe that you were so nervous considering you now have a 5 star room - and just added an expansion, your sauna. 

Majesty: Right! So excited that both are doing well. 

Muse: Is it true that orgies occur almost every night at your rooms?

Majesty: (winks) What happens in P.A.W.G stays in P.A.W.G

Muse: Oooo lol enough said

Muse: So…you have a popular room and you’re still well known in the club scene…at which point did you decide to become a pornstar?

Majesty: Well, my friend Brandon, who works at Imperial -

Muse: @imperialxxxstacy ?

Majesty: - Yes. He was telling me about the porn community on imvu which I didn’t know about. I thought it was hilarious at first but after being bored and accomplishing my 5 star rating with my first room, I decided to check it out.

Muse: Were you approached by any companies?

Majesty: Yes, but none of them were really a good fit for me. 

Muse: So what made you choose Lowlife Entertainment?

Majesty: My meeting with the CEO, Brandon. Really- that was the beginning of my porn career.

Muse: What was it about that meeting that was so significant?

Majesty: We just had a very strong connection and he had a very professional demeanor that some of the other companies I had been approached by lacked…so I felt a level of respect that let me know that this was the company for me. 

Muse: Interesting. So, just like you did in the club world, you rose up the ranks pretty quickly at Lowlife Entertainment. I remember the company members saying you were the hardest working woman in the company. 

Majesty: *laughs* That’s what they say.

Muse: I mean, you were putting out - and CONTINUE to put out - scene after scene after scene. Were you surprised when the CEO asked you to be his president?

Majesty: Honestly, yes. I didn’t see it coming…but he had been wanting to pull back so I guess there were clues.

Muse: Does he still have an active role then or do you do most of the work?

Majesty: Oh, yes, he is very active. He’s the hardest working man in the industry for sure. I could list off all the things he does, but we don’t have that much time.

Muse: LOL, point taken.

Muse: So, now we’re getting closer to recent events. You came out of nowhere from being a retired dancer to being an up-and-coming pornstar. And in less than two months you became President of one of the most respected companies in the industry. Like, seriously, try as I might, I never see anything bad about your company. What do you think helped you get noticed as a pornstar?

Majesty: Well…my ass for one. LOL. But no seriously - I think people just saw this new chick who took time to put out good work. I had never made videos before. Like EVER. I just started experimenting because I saw that not too many people in the industry were doing it at the time and I wanted to be different.

Muse: Wait, whoa, hold up. You’re saying you had no prior experience with making videos? 

Majesty: Correct.

Muse: …

Majesty: LOL

Muse: Your videos are pretty damn good. Like you know I’m an editor…for you to have no experience…like wow. Were you taught?

Majesty: I was self taught….I just played around with software and different things and yeah…lol i just spent hours and hours editing and creating. 

Muse: Have you thought about teaching?

Majesty: I think I’d be a horrible teacher but for the right fee $$$ , I might consider it.  

Muse: You’re all about the hustle, I see. Do you charge for scenes?

Majesty: No, I don’t charge people to work with me lol

Muse: What do you think about people who do? I saw a post from a certain individual who was calling the women who charge for their scenes bitches and hoes and everything under the sun.

Majesty: I mean…they have every right to charge. That’s their choice. What happens is that we have a lot of men in this industry who don’t care about the art of creating a scene, they just want to fuck and if you don’t make it easy for them, you’re automatically disrespected.  *shrugs* The disrespect against women isn’t anything new.

Muse: annndddd speaking of disrespect against women, the whole reason we’re doing this interview is because you wanted to finally open up about your own experiences. Why?

Majesty: As you know - I’m not about drama at all. I could have “exposed” certain people a long time ago, but me and my company @lowlifeent-vu , have stayed out of the drama -

Muse: That’s true. I recently was reading a post that defended a guy who has harassed multiple women in this industry and it got over 200 notes - not one single note from you or anybody from Lowlife Enterainment.

Majesty: Exactly…we just don’t do drama. The reason why I’ve decided to open up about my personal experience is because I think it’s time that people wake up and ask themselves a question: At what point is enough, enough? 

Muse: Spoken like a Queen - Now I’m going to pause and we’ll take a break for now. I need to get my tea set ready because I feel like you have a good brew to pour.

Majesty: zzzz lol

Muse: LOL so hold that thought and take a moment to breathe and we’ll meet again for Part 2.

Majesty: Sounds good to me.

Muse: Thank you for your bravery. I know you don’t sit down for interviews often, so thank you for your time.

Majesty: Any time :) and thank you for having me 

Muse: Alrighty. This concludes part 1 of this interview, take care and have a good night. 


Eric Benét Smugly Reacts to Being Name-Checked in Jay Z’s New Album
Eric Benét was called out for being a cheater on Jay Z’s new album, but the R&B singer says that he ended up winning in the end. (Photos: Getty Images)

Jay Z’s new album, 4:44, dropped last night on Tidal and the lyrics immediately caused a stir. While he may have dissed Kanye West and Future, he definitely took a jab at singer Eric Benét in the song “Kill Jay Z,” in which he seems to be singing about (possibly) cheating on Beyoncé (an accusation she launched in her own Lemonade) and regretting it.

“You almost went Eric Benét/Let the baddest girl in the world get away,” Jay rapped in the opening track of 4:44. The inference, of course, being how could Jay even think of cheating on Queen Bey — which is what people though of Benét cheating on Halle Berry over a decade earlier.


You remember — the R&B crooner was the second of Berry’s three husbands. Soon after her ground-breaking (but not ground-breaking enough) 2002 Oscar win, tabloids reported that her husband was cheating, and Benét spent 35 days in rehab for sex addiction. They divorced soon after.

While Benét was treated for being a sex addict (something many other stars, like Scott Disick, went on to label themselves as), after their divorce he said he only agreed to be treated because Halle’s mom “presented” the idea to him “in order for the marriage to have a shot… I wanted to save my marriage and do anything necessary to do that. I went and heard other people’s stories and realized this is really not my struggle.”

Eric went on to remarry Manuela Testolini (Hollywood is so incestuous), Prince’s second wife. They have two children together, Amoura and Lucia Bella, as well as Eric’s grown daughter from a previous relationship, India.

Benét responded to Jay’s name-check early Friday morning on Twitter, writing, “Hey yo #Jayz! Just so ya know, I got the baddest girl in the world as my wife…. like right now!”

Hey yo #Jayz! Just so ya know, I got the baddest girl in the world as my wife….like right now! ✌

— Eric Benét (@ebenet) June 30, 2017

The last time one of Benét’s tweets made headlines was in 2015 after Halle Berry announced her divorce from third husband Olivier Martinez. Halle’s first husband, baseballer David Justice, took a swipe at the actress’s relationship track record, writing, “Me, Eric, Gabriel [Aubry], and Olivier were all her ‘Knight in Shining Armor’, until it ends.. Then we all become the worst guys in history.” Benét replied to Justice’s tweet a thumbs-up.

So. Keith and I had a fight, because that’s 99% of our friendship. He called me a robot, which wouldn’t be so bad, but later he would not accept that Nessie is better than Mothman. We got into a very, very heated, cryptozoological discussion, and then I plastered his room with fanart, then he stole this laptop and flooded our blog with Mothman pictures. We have resolved this conflict, and will try not to get into any more feuds. -Pidge

The Difference Between “Slamming” Someone and Standing Up for Yourself

Last night, Taylor Swift won a Grammy for Album of the Year for her pop album 1989. In her speech, she thanked her team and then spoke directly to young girls, stating: 

“As the first woman to win album of the year at the Grammys twice, I want to say to all the young women out there: there are going to be people along the way who will try to undercut your success or take credit for your accomplishments or your fame, but if you just focus on the work and you don’t let those people sidetrack you, someday when you get where you’re going, you’ll look around and you’ll know it was you and the people who love you who put you there and that will be the greatest feeling in the world.”

It was a message of female empowerment and of course, a nod to Kanye West’s lyrics on his new album which revealed that Kanye feels he is responsible for Taylor’s fame. This morning we were not surprised to see that most major article headlines were about Taylor’s win and her acceptance speech. We were, however, shocked to see the language used in the titles. “Taylor Swift Slams Kanye West”, “Taylor Swift Fires Back at Kanye West”, “Taylor Swift Inserts Kanye West Dig Into Acceptance Speech”. 

In our opinion, Taylor did not diss anyone, and she certainly didn’t name names. What she did do, was stand up for herself. She decided not to let her voice be silenced, and used her platform, after winning a Grammy award off of her own merits, to say, I put in the work, I got myself here, and how dare you try to claim credit for something you had no hand in? How dare you attempt to devalue my hard work and my talent?

While her message was pointed, and it was as close as Taylor will probably get to addressing Kanye’s remarks head on, it wasn’t a diss or a petty attempt to start a feud. Taylor’s talent and value was insulted in a very sexist way, and all she did was stand up for herself and for women everywhere who are constantly being torn down by those who think that because their voices are louder, that it means that what they have to say is more true or more important. 

So how about this for a title: “Taylor Swift Wins Grammy for Album of the Year, Empowers Women To Be Proud of their Accomplishments”. 

We Got Kitty Pryde to Interview Hopsin, Her Least Favorite Rapper

I pride myself on my eternal optimism. The only condition to my permanently positive attitude is the need for a scapegoat; I can turn basically any frown upside-down as long as I have one solitary being to blame all the frowns on. I’m not sure why I chose Hopsin to play Rap Game Satan for the past year, but ever since I hit like 10,000 followers on Twitter I’ve been trying to cultivate a very public rap beef between us, and he’s been infuriatingly unresponsive to every dis. Not a single tweet, never a head-nod; when I saw him live in Orlando (a show where he was booed, dropped by a crowd of bros during a crowdsurfing attempt, and eventually arrested) he didn’t even glance a corny anime-club eyeball my way. On my birthday, I had the opportunity to interview him over the phone. I knew it could go one of two ways—either he would call me out for being needlessly bitchy online, or he would have no idea who I was and give me the opportunity to trick him into saying something really stupid. I read and researched. I knew exactly what he’d say. I anticipated feeling really good about myself after the entire ordeal. I was gonna go out for dumplings afterward. Instead, I was forced to do what my Sunday school teacher called “soul-searching.” Because it turns out that Hopsin is actually really nice.

[Thought Commentary in Italics]

Noisey: Hi Hopsin, it’s Kitty Pryde from Noisey. [I got all clammy at the prospect of actually saying his name out loud.]
What’s up Katie, how you doing? 

[I smiled. He had no idea who I am.]

I just have a few questions to ask you. I think you’re really really interesting. [Diss. I tried.]
Thanks!

First of all, where did you get your rap name? How did you think of it?[I prayed he would give me the same answer he’d given so many hip hop magazines- "I am the hip-"HOP” “SIN”-ister – That’s where my name came from.“  In reality, Hopson is his actual last name, and he made up that corny line. This was my first call-out plan.]
It’s my last name; my rap name is my last name. Keeping it simple, I just figured cause it has the word hop in it, and hip-hop…so it has a nice little ring to it, so I just stuck with Hopsin.

Th….that’s cool….it reminds me of….bunnies….do you ever think about that? [Obviously, I wasn’t prepared to hear the truth. In a state of confusion and panic, my mind went straight to bunnies. Not surprising.]
Bunnies. [laughs] I hop around a lot as well so it works to my benefit…sorry if you can’t hear me; theres a lot of wind over here.

No it’s ok, I do this a lot. I also just wanted to ask you how you started rapping? [No, I’ve never done this, ever. I also don’t care how you started rapping, but I didn’t know what to ask next and this is the question that every dumb blog interviewer asks me right off the bat. I hoped for a long boring story that would leave me time to plan.]
It was back in 2000, 2001, I was just making a lot of parody songs, parodies of songs that were already out on the radio and stuff. I would watch MAD TV and Saturday Night Live and just do what they did. I actually developed lyrical skill over time, and I just started writing originals, and it was a lot of fun so I just decided it was something I wanted to do with my life and I just started doing it, back in high school.

[That’s when it hit me- he was trolling me. He knew exactly who I was, and he was going to give answers mirroring my own from every interview I’d ever done. He was plotting something more evil than I could have ever dreamt up on my own, and I had no idea what it was. My heart sank…my hate-magnet was beating me at my own game.]

How old were you? How old are you now, actually? [If he answered "13,” "15,” or, “Don’t worry about it"….that’s how I would know for sure.]
I’m 27. When I started it was 13 years ago; I was 14.

So you’ve devoted half your life to the game?
Yeah I have.

That’s admirable. [It was. I was half impressed, half ashamed for being impressed. I thought about punching myself in the face, but I was surrounded by VICE writers, so I knew it would show up online somewhere. You have to think about these things.]
I love it though, it’s fun.

Do you ever get in arguments? I know you had that whole Odd Future thing but I’m not talking about that, I’m just talking about anybody else that you have beef with? [I plucked petals from an imaginary daisy. He hates me….he hates me not….he hates me…]
Nah, not really. I don’t have any beef with any rapper.

favorite feuds; stone cold steve austin vs mr mcmahon

“i don’t appreciate a god damn thing you’ve ever done for anybody, because ever since i walked through the door of that damn company in 1995 you son of a bitch, all you did was see fit to fuck me over, screw me around, try to yank every fucking title i ever won from you, and then every time stone cold started to go up, you’d try to bring me down. you’re a fucking asshole you son of a bitch, and i don’t appreciate a god damn thing you ever did for me because in my eyes, you’re a lying sack of shit, and that’s the bottom line, ‘cause stone cold said so.“

Best Feuds of the Early Years

So Demi Lovato has involved herself once again in something that is none of her business. If you haven’t heard she basically accused Taylor Swift’s “squad” of not having "normal" bodies (whatever that means.) Demi V Taylor is only one of the many hollywood feuds we’ve had throughout the years. Here’s a list of some of the most iconic ones from the earlier years.

Mariah Carey V Jennifer Lopez

It all started when Mariah was asked her opinion on several different pop stars. When she was asked about Jennifer her reply was “I don’t know her.” Since then this phrase has become iconic. Though J Lo says Mariah definitely knows her and she must be “forgetful”, Mariah still denies it to this day saying they’ve met but it was just “hi I’m so and so and then move on.”

Lauren Conrad V Kristin Cavallari

This has to be one of the most iconic television feuds of all time. And what was the cause? Stephen Colletti. If you were a fan of reality television back in 2004, you know exactly who these two stars are. Kristin dated Colletti back in high school and who did Lauren happen to have a huge crush on? Stephen. Easy to say these two did not get along very well but it sure was entertaining to watch. Luckily the two moved on. They’re both happily married and Cavallari even has 3 kids with her current husband (and no he is not Stephen). So what do they think of each other now? In a Page Six interview earlier this year Cavallari admitted “I haven’t seen or spoke to [Conrad] in a while, but if I saw her I would give her a big hug.” So there you have it, this feud is officially “dunzo.”

Paris Hilton V Nicole Richie

These best friends turned enemies made headlines in 2005 when Paris admitted that her and Nicole were no longer friends. They even went as far as to separately film the 4th season of their hit reality show The Simple Life. So what brought on the intense feud between the former bf'fs? It’s never been confirmed. All Paris had to say was “Nicole knows what she did and that’s all I’m ever going to say about it.” Though neither have spoken out about the truth, it’s been rumored that Nicole invited a bunch of friends over to watch Paris on SNL, but instead played them Paris’s infamous sex tape that sky rocketed her to fame. Luckily the girls made up a year later and remain on good terms. I guess we’ll never really know what went down between these two but I sure am glad they reunited.

Hilary Duff V Lindsay Lohan

If you were the #1 Hilary Duff fan in the early 2000s like I was, then you’ll surely remember this one. Hilary and Lindsay’s feud began with one very famous teen heartthrob back in 2003. Aaron Carter, every young girl’s dream boy. Duff dated Carter then Lindsay dated Carter then duff dated Carter again. Then Lindsay allegedly called Chad Michael Murray to spread lies about Hilary and then made fun of her on SNL. So basically the same as every other young hollywood feud caused by some overrated teen boy. No say as to if this feud ever ended but being that Hilary’s on yet another hit tv show, Younger on TV land, and spends her time off hanging with her adorable son Luca, I have a feeling she’s moved on from the Lindsay/Carter Drama. Meanwhile Lindsay’s still working on getting her life back on track after years of being in and out of rehab. Good Luck Lindsay we still love you! This feud is officially declared so yesterday.

Lauren Conrad V Speidi

And Lauren finds her way back on our list with yet another feud, this time with her The Hills costar and former BFF, Heidi Montag, and her current husband Spencer Pratt. The Hills was the further successful Laguna Beach spin off. If you were hoping for another feud about two girls ripped apart over a guy then congrats that’s just what you’re getting. If not then sorry you’re out of luck :( Lauren and Heidi were the best friends that anyone could have that was until Spencer Pratt ripped these two apart. Their friendship first started falling apart when Heidi was spending more and more time with Spencer and less time with Lauren. Jealous much? But that wasn’t the only problem. After Heidi made the decision to move out of the apartment she was sharing with Lauren and into her own place with Spencer, it all came crashing down. A rumor about a sex tape Lauren had made with her former boyfriend and Celebrity Rehab star, Jason Wahler was spread throughout hollywood and every celebrity gossip site in practically the entire world. And who was believed to be at the start of this rumor? No one other than Spencer Pratt, who to this day denies his involvement and alleges it was Jason who started the rumor. But that didn’t matter to Lauren because she was sure it was Spencer. Heidi though, wasn’t so sure. She took Spencer’s side and that was it for the two of them. These two never did reconcile but have learned to “forgive and forget.”

Mariah Carey V Eminem

Last but certainly not least, The Mariah and Eminem feud. Possibly more legendary than Mariah’s feud with Jennifer Lopez, this one started back in 2002 when Eminem rapped about Mariah on his track Superman which contained the lyrics “What you trying to be? my new wife/what, you mariah? fly through twice.” Carey denied dating him though on larry king claiming they’d only hung out 4 times and she doesn’t consider that dating. The feud continued on until Mariah ultimately ended him in her 2009 hit Obsessed. Anything Eminem has set afterwards is irrelevant because nothing can compete with this legendary drag. Mariah 1 Eminem 0.

Though all my favorite feuds have come and gone, we can all be sure Hollywood will never be feud free and we can continue to savor petty feuds for all of eternity
