For someone who’s all about women empowerment, it’s interesting to see one of her former employees suing for losing their job after getting pregnant.
Check out the drama on this story below!
According to a lawsuit filed Friday, Carolyn Hommel claims she was hired in 2010 as senior director of scheduling and acquisitions at Oprah’s OWN network. Hommel claims she was told she was on-track to become a VP, but says things took a sudden turn when she became pregnant.
According to Hommel … her duties were slowly transferred to a temporary employee and she was excluded from meetings when she returned from medical leave. Hommel claims she was let go ONE MONTH after giving birth and told to re-apply for the VP gig … only to be passed over. Read more
I feels like it hasn’t been that long since Drake dropped new music, however if you take out the fact that the songs we’ve been hearing him are features, it truly has been too damn long!
Drake took to his personal website to drop a new song for his fans entitled ‘Started From The Bottom.’
In the open letter written by Drake below, he tells his fans why he didn’t do any interviews to promote his new single and is in hopes of people seeing a different side of him after hearing the song:
My good friends,It has truly been too long. I assume you’re all keeping well and making the most of this year that has been given to us. Today is the day to begin sharing my newest work with you. This is the first single off of my upcoming album. I feel sometimes that people don’t have enough information about my beginnings and therefore they make up a life story for me that isn’t consistent with actual events. My family and my second family (consisting of the best friends anybody could ever have) all struggled and worked extremely hard to make all this happen. I did not buy my way into this spot and it was the furthest thing from easy to achieve. I am proud of every part of my past and I’m excited for this song to find a place in your life as well. I didn’t feel I needed any interviews or radio or press to launch this song. It felt right to come back to the site that I started on and release it to the people that started here with me. Judging by this post, the tour that we’ve been planning, the conversations about new songs and album artwork…I think it’s safe to say we’re back together again. Looking forward to seeing you all soon.
