What Does ‘BBL Drizzy’ Mean? The Diss Inspired By Metro Boomin, Explained

What exactly does “BBL Drizzy” mean, and why is this song everywhere?

“BBL Drizzy” is the name of an instrumental beat created by St. Louis producer, Metro Boomin, as a response to Drake exhorting the beatmaker to “shut up and make some drums” on his Kendrick Lamar diss track, “Push Ups.”

That’s exactly what Metro did, crafting a beat from an interpolation of an AI-generated song. But you knew all that; what you really want to know is WHY. So, strap in, folks. We’re going for a RIDE.

First of all, we have to explain: What, or who, is “Drizzy?” I’m starting here because it’s the easiest part to explain. Drizzy is a nickname for Drake. If you don’t know who Drake is… I mean, come on. You know who Drake is.

Secondly, we have to contend with just what the heck “BBL” means. I’m sorry to be the one to inform you, but “BBL” stands for “Brazilian Butt Lift,” a cosmetic surgical procedure also known as lipoinjection or autologous fat transfer (fun fact, it was actually invented by a Venezuelan guy! Those dang Americans and their poor geography skills!). Basically, the surgeon sucks the fat from somewhere else on the body, e.g., the stomach, and injects it into the buttocks. It’s a popular procedure among so-called “IG baddies,” who would be “video vixens” in millennial-speak.

Okay, so, we now know what a BBL is, and who Drizzy is, but why “BBL Drizzy?” Well, because of long-circulating, unconfirmed rumors that Drake got liposuction done to give himself an enviable six-pack of abs. The reason that surgery is being turned into a completely different one is because, well, it’s funnier that way, and the whole point of the song is to make fun of Drake.

The original song was prompted by a comedian named King Willonius, who was inspired by a Rick Ross tweet in which the Miami rapper accused Drake of getting a BBL done. Udio, the app used to make the song, produced a vintage-sounding song that Metro then interpolated to make a beat, which he then offered up on social media for anyone to use for any purpose, which pretty much ensured its spread.

Meanwhile, Drake, in an effort to take back control of the narrative, has co-opted it by attaching it to the end of Sexyy Red’s Tay Keith-produced new single, “U My Everything.” You can see the thinking behind it; he’s proved adept at flipping the internet’s jokes in the past, but this time, he may be in over his head.

‘Horizon: An American Saga – Chapter 1’: Everything To Know About Kevin Costner’s Post-‘Yellowstone’ Western Epic (Update For May 2024)

warner bros.

Kevin Costner is a Hollywood mainstay, but it’s fair to say that the directorial side of his career has ebbed and flowed. For every Open Range and Dances With Wolves, there’s a Waterworld or The Postman, but Costner persists. He’s determined to bring the world his Horizon: An American Saga in four parts, for which two films are already finished and on the theatrical schedule. The final pair’s survival will depend upon how the first half fares with audiences, but Costner is in it to win it, even if that meant saying goodbye to John Dutton on Yellowstone in the midst of the Taylor Sheridan force of nature’s final season.

Much of the current Costner chatter revolves around him setting his record straight on what, exactly, went wrong with the timing of his rebooted movie career and scheduling for his Taylor Sheridan show’s final episodes. Yet the Field of Dreams star knows his current and most enduring audience, and he asked them to expect a different kind of Western experience than is usually found onscreen because Horizon does not revolve around a previously established settlement. And it’s time to get down to cowboy business with what fans will see in Chapter 1 arriving soon.

Plot

Costner previously let Variety know that his four-part saga will allow the audience to “in a sense, feel themselves in this movie.” That statement sits alongside the fact that Horizon: An American Saga – Chapter 1 takes place in the 1860s during the U.S. Civil War from the viewpoint of settlers in the American West. Costner believed so strongly in this project that he’s going full James Cameron here.

That is to say, Horizon was preannounced as several films without waiting for a studio greenlight after a traditional box-office run. Costner even decided to make that leap because (as he told Hollywood Reporter) “When no one wanted to make the first one, I got the bright idea to make four.” That’s a difficult goal to finance in the 2020s from any angle, but perhaps even more so for Costner, who has had his share of big-budget directorial busts. Still, he believes in this project enough to have poured many millions of his own money into the endeavor and even sold his ranch to do so. Heck, Costner declared that he would sell even more homes if necessary, and he’s even hitting the early days of filming Chapter 3 before the first film arrives.

Costner’s Yellowstone audience should be fairly sticky for these movies, and he did pull off a standing ovation that ran (accounts do differ on length) anywhere from 7-10 minutes, during which those eyes did not remain dry:

That ovation (and his obvious gratitude) hopefully helped him raise funding in Cannes, and perhaps those unsubtle negative reviews, including from Ryan Lattanzio of Indiewire, who described the film as though Costner was “trying to out-Taylor Sheridan Taylor Sheridan.”

However, Warner Bros. had enough faith to bet big on releasing two Horizon films within months of each other. Here’s the Chapter 1 synopsis:

In the great tradition of Warner Bros. Pictures’ iconic Westerns, “Horizon: An American Saga” explores the lure of the Old West and how it was won—and lost—through the blood, sweat and tears of many. Spanning the four years of the Civil War, from 1861 to 1865, Costner’s ambitious cinematic adventure will take audiences on an emotional journey across a country at war with itself, experienced through the lens of families, friends and foes all attempting to discover what it truly means to be the United States of America.

Cast

Costner, of course, stars in the movie. He has also pulled together a vast ensemble cast befitting a tale of the frontier. Those actors include Sienna Miller, Tom Payne, Sam Worthington, Jena Malone, Jamie Campbell Bower, Abbey Lee, Michael Rooker, Danny Huston, Luke Wilson, Owen Crow Shoe, Angus Macfadyen, Tatanka Means, Isabelle Fuhrman, Jeff Fahey, Will Patton, Amos Jason Charging Cloud, Bodhi Okuma Linton, Giovanni Ribisi, Gregory Cruz, James Russo, nd Ella Hunt.

Release Date

Horizon: An American Saga will arrive with Chapter 1 in theaters on June 28. The already completed Chapter 2 will follow on August 16.

And so the saga begins:

New Zealand’s Divorced Couple Team (EXCLUSIVE CLIP)

The “Divorced Daredevils” are at odds as a team in ‘Race to Survive: New Zealand.’

It’s hard to imagine willingly partnering with an ex to compete on a competition reality show where the pressure is very real. But that’s exactly what the divorced couple, nicknamed the “Divorced Daredevils,” are doing on Race to Survive: New Zealand. And in an exclusive clip ahead of the May 27 episode, we meet exes Creighton and Paulina, who understand the intensity of the Race to Survive competition, but have agreed to work together anyway.

Article continues below advertisement

The clip also features best friends Coree and Jeff, who seem to have a better understanding of working together. Still, you can’t really blame the Divorced Daredevils for having difficulties getting along and keeping their heads in the game at hand. As the couple explains in the clip, they got divorced just five months prior to filming.

Article continues below advertisement

The “Divorced Daredevils” from ‘Race to Survive: New Zealand’ have a lot of differences.

In the Race to Survive: New Zealand clip, Creighton and Paulina have some communication issues. When they discuss the option of going after some supplies to sustain them for future races versus placing higher in their current race, they don’t exactly see eye to eye. And it’s made even worse by Creighton not quite listening to what Paulina has to say from her perspective.

“I think there’s just a lot of differences in the two of us, and we thought, you know, let’s go to therapy and we’ll work on this together,” Paulina tells producers in the clip. “And that way, we can be the best versions of ourselves that we can be so that we can compete at our best.”

In the end, Creighton concedes to Paulina’s choice in avoiding the food cache and continuing on in the race. However, he can’t help but add, he doesn’t agree with the decision Paulina made for their team.

What is the prize in ‘Race to Survive: New Zealand’?

There are multiple legs to the race on Race to Survive: New Zealand. But for all of the teams who are cast to compete, the grand prize is worth all of the difficulties in the end, since just one team walks away with $500,000. The teams have 40 days to travel 150 miles, and yes, it’s as treacherous as it sounds.

As both Creighton and Paulina and Coree and Jeff trudge along in the clip, the stakes are not lost on either team. But in the end, each team has to agree on how to proceed. And we can only imagine how hard that is to do when your teammate is also someone who you have trouble communicating with in real life.

‘I’m ready to switch mobile providers’: Customer of 10 years shocked after T-Mobile increases prices


The United States has some of the most expensive cell phone coverage in the world.

A 2018 study from Finnish research firm Rewheel noted that the United States was “the 5th most expensive market among EU28 and OECD countries.” This means that, at the time of the study, the median price per gigabyte of American mobile data was around $6.70; in contrast, a gigabyte of data costs just $2.16 in the E.U.

Despite these high prices, Americans do not get substantially better service. In fact, some have even claimed that cell phone service in the United States is getting worse.

“On average, between April and June of 2023, U.S. cellphone users reported that out of every 100 times they tried to use data, text, or make a call, they had problems 11 times,” writes Alana Semuels for TIME. “That’s up from about nine problems per 100 connections in most of 2020 and 2021, according to a report from J.D. Power.”

However, that hasn’t stopped mobile service providers from trying to increase their prices, as one TikTok user recently learned.

Is T-Mobile increasing prices?

TikTok user @explain_this recently shared an image that has sparked discussion on TikTok. In the image, the user shows a text they received from T-Mobile telling them that their pricing will increase by $5 per line “for the first time in nearly a decade.”

“For the first time in nearly a decade I’m ready to switch mobile providers,” the TikToker wrote in response.

The user captions the piece with a note that they have six lines; as a result, this would mean a $30 per month increase, or $360 per year hike, in their bills.

In a post to X (formerly Twitter), T-Mobile confirmed that it would be increasing its prices, writing that the company was “adjusting prices to respond to rising costs.” According to the company, this change would only impact a “small fraction of customers,” notes The Verge.

Customers share their thoughts

In the comments section, many questioned why the user was given a $5 increase when they had only received a $2 increase.

“Mine says $2 a line. why are they charging you 5?” a user asked.

“I got the same text and they told me that mine is increasing by two dollars a line,” echoed another.

Other users simply lamented these price increases.

“LIKE WHY IS EVERYTHING GOING UP!! THEYRE LITERALLY TRYING TO KILL US,” exclaimed a user. “I cannot.”

“Yup! I got that too! Not sure what I’m going to do. Personally. I’m sick and tired of being gouged by big corporations!” offered a second.

The Daily Dot reached out to T-Mobile via email and @explain_this via TikTok direct message.

7 Great Movies About Pregnancy To Watch After ‘Babes’

If you haven’t seen Babes, then what did you even do last weekend? Performed brain surgery? Testified in the trial of Donald J. Trump? Because even those excuses are barely cutting it. 

And what is Babes, you ask, sending my jaw to the floor? Why, it’s the uproarious buddy comedy starring Ilana Glazer and Michelle Buteau that premiered May 17 to stellar reviews, of course! Specifically, the movie follows Eden (Glazer) as she becomes pregnant after a one-night stand and decides to have the baby, spawning hijinks galore. It’s a refreshing take on motherhood, aging millennialism, and ride-or-die friendships. 

It also follows a long line of pregnancy-themed genre flicks – some of them rom-coms, some of them Mother! starring Jennifer Lawrence – that are all worth seeing. Well, maybe not all of them. We would never trash someone’s artistic output or passion project here at Thought Catalog. So, here are seven movies about pregnancy that are not Mother! starring Jennifer Lawrence. 

Knocked Up (2007)

Universal Pictures

“He’s playing fetch with my kids. He’s treating my kids like they’re dogs.” What line better sums up the immaturity of Seth Rogen’s Ben Stone in this movie? Even his last name evokes his favorite medicinal recreational activity – the very activity that causes Allison Scott (Katherine Heigl) to have second thoughts about raising his child. 

But it’s the movie’s sweet romance and supporting characters (all Judd Apatow regulars) that make this movie sing. Though Allison and Ben had never planned their parenthood, they ultimately become a model couple. Also, who can forget the hyper-realistic shot of the baby coming out? Or the fateful Cirque du Soleil trip? Or the officious voice of Leslie Mann? Also, can we finally forgive Heigl for shading this movie? She was literally crucified for having an opinion.

Baby Mama (2008)

Universal Pictures

Jury’s out on whether this movie’s actual script is funny, but if you’re a Poehler and/or Fey stan, then this movie is for you. Running on chemistry and talent alone, the two improvise their way through this formulaic story, mining comedy gold en route. As Kate Holbrook, a workaholic who decides to have a baby via a chaotic surrogate (Poehler), Fey does her usual shtick to perfection. There’s even an absurdly amusing moment featuring Sigourney Weaver, of all people!

Juno (2008)

Fox Searchlight

Is it just coincidence that so many comedies about pregnancy came out in the mid-to-late aughts? Or did Gen X screenwriters all get pregnant at the same time? Whatever the reason behind the Great On-Screen Baby Boom of 2004-2008, it simply wouldn’t be complete without Juno. Like, how many movies do you know that could include the line, “That ain’t no etch-a-sketch; this is one doodle that can’t be un-did, homeskillet” with a straight face? Though twee by modern standards, Juno is still a moving, endearing, delightfully eccentric coming-of-age tale. Plus, it stars Elliott Page in their cinematic breakthrough as the pregnant Juno MacGuff. Meanwhile, Jennifer Garner is magnificent as the woman who adopts her baby.

Saved! (2004)

MGM

If you weren’t a closeted queer kid with a penchant for indie cult comedies in the mid-aughts, then you probably missed this movie. That said, you need to go back and find it! It’s like an early prototype of Easy A, complete with sanctimonious religious character who judges the pregnant main character. However, in this case, the religious character is played by Mandy Moore and not by Amanda Bynes, and the ostracized sexually awakened woman is Jena Malone and not Emma Stone. Both are hilarious, whereas the plot – quiet girl f&cks gay man to turn him straight, then accepts his queerness after becoming pregnant with his child – is the stuff that indie dreams are made of.

Children of Men (2006)

Universal Pictures

Considering this thriller’s outstanding one-shot action sequences and close-ups of Clive Owen’s chiseled face, it’s easy to forget that the movie is about pregnancy. And yet, in the dystopian future of Alfonso Cuarón’s Children of Men, women can no longer get pregnant – and the world is on the verge of extinction. But one woman does get pregnant, setting off the movie’s plot. That said, Children of Men’s other prediction – that immigrants will be grimly barred from entering the United Kingdom – is already true. Thanks, Brexit! 

Citizen Ruth (1996)

Miramax Films

Have you ever wondered what Laura Dern did between the years of 1993 and 2017? Well, she was in Alexander Payne’s directorial debut, for starters! In the dark satirical comedy Citizen Ruth, Dern plays a down-trodden paint-huffing mother of four who accidentally becomes pregnant with a fifth child, incidentally birthing a nationwide conversation about her right to get an abortion. The movie’s satire of the abortion debates of the ‘90s is mostly on the money, and quite ahead of its time. Dern, of course, is brilliant.

Rosemary’s Baby (1968)

Paramount Pictures

This movie gets referenced so often that it’s almost impossible to watch it without knowing the ending. That said, the movie is still an exquisitely disturbing and atmospheric character study of a woman who may or may not be carrying the spawn of Satan. It’s also the U.S. debut of writer-director Roman Polanski, who, unlike Katherine Heigl, has not suffered enough for That Thing He Did Ugh. Oh, sorry…You were expecting me to end this list on a positive note? Uh, puppies and kittens!

Universal Donor Blood Could Be Within Reach Thanks To A Bacteria Found In Our Guts

Source: Shutterstock

The recent pandemic reminded all of us how important donor blood is, and how we are collectively always a little too close to running out.

Scientists have been working on ways to make all blood types able to be transfused “universally” to bridge the gap, and thanks to a recent enzyme discovery, they could be closer than ever.

There are 45 known blood group systems that depend on the presence of 362 antigens on red blood cells.

The ABO ground and the rhesus (Rh) antigen are the most important. You might have A, AB, B, or O blood, and each type can also be positive or negative.

But researchers have discovered enzymes that can remove the sugars that make up the A and B antigens, and the B in particular looks to be able to be made universal.

Source: ShutterstockSource: Shutterstock

Senior author Professor Maher Abou Hachem sounds excited about the potential.

“For the first time, the new enzyme cocktails not only remove the well-described A and B antigens, but also extended variants previously not recognized as problematic for transfusion safety. We are close to being able to produce universal blood from group B donors, while there is still work to be done to convert the more complex group A blood. Our focus is now to investigate in detail if there are additional obstacles and how we can improve our enzymes to reach the ultimate goal of universal blood production.”

The enzymes are derived from a bacterium that lives in our gut called Akkermansia muciniphila. It feeds by breaking down our intestinal mucous, which resemble the complex sugars found in the blood.

Researchers think this means the bacteria could be used to make universal blood.

“What is special about the mucosa is that bacteria, which are able to live on this material, often have tailor-made enzymes to break down mucosal sugar structures, which include blood group ABO antigens. This hypothesis turned out to be correct.”

The team extracted 24 enzymes from the bacteria and used them to processed blood stampes. They worked with researchers at Lund University to apply for a patent and are working on a joint process to keep testing more enzymes.

Professor Martin L. Olsson, study co-author, says they then plan to move on to controlled patient trials.

“Universal blood will create a more efficient utilization of donor blood, and also avoid giving ABO mismatched transfusions by mistake, which can otherwise lead to potentially fatal consequences in the recipient. When we can create ABO-universal donor blood, we will simplify the logistics of transporting and administering safe blood products, while at the same time minimizing blood waste.”

This definitely sounds super exciting.

Imagine never running out of much-needed blood again!

Travis Scott Has Settled The Final Astroworld Festival Wrongful Death Lawsuit With The Youngest Victim’s Family

Getty Image

The last of the wrongful death lawsuits against Travis Scott from the 2021 Astroworld Festival disaster has been settled out of court. The suit was filed by the family of Ezra Blount, who was just nine years old; they were the last holdouts after nine other lawsuits were settled two weeks ago. The Blount family had been one of the most vocal in alleging Scott’s culpability for the tragedy, which caused hundreds of injuries in addition to the 10 deaths (along with Live Nation, Apple, Front Gate Ticketing Solutions, and other subcontractors).

According to the Houston Chronicle, the Blounts’ lawyer, Scott West, said, “The family is happy to resolve its claim against all defendants following the death of their son, Ezra. They look forward to continuing the process of healing and never forgetting.”

Prior to this, pretrial hearings saw Drake dismissed from the case, and Travis’ request to also be dismissed denied.

However, the hundreds of injury cases, which were combined into a single case under a Texas statute allowing for ease of litigation of big cases like this, will still proceed. That trial is set to begin in October, with Travis Scott, Live Nation, and Apple all still named as defendants.

Andy Cohen Shares Whether Shereé Whitfield Is Coming Back to RHOA (EXCLUSIVE)

“I always have hope that we will get a little Shereé coming back.”

In May 2024, Bravo released the official cast for Season 16 of The Real Housewives of Atlanta. As fans cheered for Porsha Williams and Cynthia Bailey’s return and fan favorites like Shamea Morton becoming peach holders, to many, one significant name was missing: Shereé Whitfield.

Shereé’s unexpected exit caused an uproar amongst those who felt the OG had more story to tell on the show she helped create.

The blame quickly went to Bravo and Housewives EP Andy Cohen, as fans believed neither realized how much Shereé was needed on Atlanta.

Distractify had the pleasure of speaking to Andy during his happy hour for his partnership with Fresca Mixed. In an exclusive chat, he shared that there may be some room for Shereé and her Chateau after all!

Is Shereé Whitfield coming back to ‘The Real Housewives of Atlanta?’ Andy Cohen “hopes” so.

Andy shared that he’s in the trenches with fans who feel Shereé deserved more time on RHOA. He said he was just as “upset” to see her off of the show as many Bravo watchers were. Andy also confirmed that, while the official Season 16 cast announcement didn’t include Shereé as a main cast member, he wants to see her back on the show.

“I always have hope that we will get a little Shereé coming back,” Andy said.

And as fans continue to make social media posts suggesting the contrary, the Watch What Happens Live host also said that Shereé has his respect and admiration and said there’s always room for her to make a few shady remarks (and possibly revive her status as the “bone collector”) in future episodes.

“I think that Shereé is one of the cornerstones of that show,” Andy stated. “She’s one of my personal favorites.”

Andy thinks Shereé joining ‘RHOA’ with the cast “in some capacity” needs to happen.

Shereé’s exit from The Real Housewives of Atlanta for Season 16 was a part of the show’s choice to pivot, otherwise known as a “cast shakeup.” In addition to Shereé leaving, Marlo Hampton, Sanya Richards-Ross, and Shereé’s friend, Courtney Rhodes, weren’t asked back for another season.

Kandi Burruss also left the series after 14 seasons, though she has said she was asked back for another season. Season 16 only kept two peach holders from the previous season — Drew Sidora and Kenya Moore. Porsha also returned, but this time has her BFF Shamea by her side as a peach holder.

Article continues below advertisement

The well-known Bravo stars will be joined by newbies Brittany “Brit” Eady, Kelli Ferrell, and Angela Oakley. Angela is Shereé’s ex, Charles Oakley’s wife.

Since the cast announcement, Shereé hasn’t acknowledged her exit publicly. However, she has Andy’s support to play with the Season 16 ladies “in some capacity,” though only time (and how fans respond to the new cast) will tell.

“I hope that Shereé will be back in some capacity,” Andy shared with us. “I hope she will always be a part of the show in one way or another. She’s Shereé. She’s an OG.”
