What an exciting time for Rita Ora!

On Thursday, Tyra Banks revealed that Rita will be the next host of America's Next Top Model. The beauty made the announcement via USA Today following months of rumors that the singer would take her place.

Speaking on the new direction of the show Ora is set to materialize, Banks explained:

"It's no longer just about having the highest cheekbones and best pout and the best hair. My goal is to really get into these girls' heads that I'm not looking for some successful model and I'm not looking for some social-media star. I'm looking for both. I'm looking for a hybrid, because that's where the world is."

Hmm… this sounds like the franchise is looking for a Kendall Jenner and Gigi Hadid type. Should be interesting!

As for R.O., she believes she's more than capable of embodying the new spirit of the show:

"The approach I wanted to have as a host and judge to the girls is what my career stands for at this moment in time, which is being a businesswoman and being able to do multiple things at the same time, whether it's music or shooting (magazine covers) and being in movies and designing clothes."

Well, you can't deny the 25-year-old IS a triple threat. We can see this one working out!

As for where they are in shooting the season, Ora confessed:

"I actually just finished my first elimination. I can't go into detail, but it was definitely an emotional one."

Ohhh, drama already! Nice.

But wait, that's not all! Paper magazine chief creative officer Drew Elliott, stylist Law Roach and model Ashley Graham will also join the judge's panel this season.

So, what do YOU think of Tyra's picks?

NBA Pulls All-Star Game From North Carolina Over Anti-LGBT Legislation!

| Filed under: Gay Gay GayZportzLegal MattersPolitikBasketballNBAViral: NewsTransgenderLGBT

Way to go, NBA!

The NBA has had enough of North Carolina's anti-LGBT bullsh*t!

On Thursday, the Association announced that it will NOT be hosting the 2017 All-Star Game at Charlotte's Time Warner Cable Arena because of the state's controversial bathroom bill.

This comes less than a week after NC's lawmakers had a chance to change up HB2 — which notably forces transgender individuals to use the bathrooms associated with their biological sex, rather than the gender with which they identify — but instead left the law intact.

And now, Commissioner Adam Silver has had enough.

In a new statement, the NBA explained that they can't wait any longer for the awful legislation to change, saying:

"The NBA has decided to relocate the 2017 All-Star Game from Charlotte with the hope of rescheduling for 2019. Since March, when North Carolina enacted HB2 and the issue of legal protections for the LGBT community in Charlotte became prominent, the NBA and the Charlotte Hornets have been working diligently to foster constructive dialogue and try to effect positive change. We have been guided in these discussions by the long-standing core values of our league. These include not only diversity, inclusion, fairness and respect for others but also the willingness to listen and consider opposing points of view."

The basketball league also explained that the discriminatory bill does not uphold the NBA's values:

Woah, there's A LOT to dissect here!

In a disastrous, uncomfortable, and unintentionally hilarious discussion with Michael Che and Colin Jost, Chris Matthews managed to offend and amaze in a matter of minutes. While we don't know exactly know what was going on with the MSNBC host, one thing is clear… he REALLY went there this time!

Here's a brief recap of the chat that was SUPPOSED to be about politics — Mr. Matthews flat out asked Che who the "funniest black guy" is in addition to accidentally implying that Bill Cosby is dead. The host also went on to ask the guys what hotel they're staying at during the RNC convention because WHY NOT.

Check out the cringeworthy talk (below)!

Police Union President Defends Shooting By Saying Officer Was Actually Trying To Shoot The Autistic Patient, Not His Therapist…

Don't worry, they're not racist… just horrifically incompetent?

In what's just the latest case of Police brutality in America, a 47-year-old black behavioral therapist was shot in North Miami on Monday while trying to protect his mentally challenged patient.

As we previously reported, the 23-year-old with autism had wandered away from his group home, but was found playing with a white toy car in the middle of a street by his caretaker Charles Kinsey.

Unfortunately, Police stumbled upon the pair while responding to a call about an armed man threatening to commit suicide, and proceeded to shoot Charles despite his many attempts to resolve the non-issue non-violently, which included him LAYING DOWN ON THE STREET WITH HIS ARMS UP!

However, Florida authorities are here to clear this whole mess up… because it turns out they didn't mean to shoot Charles in the leg — they were actually aiming for his patient instead!!!

Now that the story has gained national media attention three days after it actually occurred, the North Miami Police Department FINALLY held a press conference on Thursday where Miami-Dade police union president John Rivera tried to defend the trigger-happy cops, saying:

Mila Kunis Could Give Zero F*cks About Breastfeeding Shamers!

Do your thang, Mila Kunis!

In a very no f*cks given interview with Vanity Fair, Mila gave a very pro-breastfeeding PSA shaming haters who've made her feel uncomfortable for feeding her daughter Wyatt Isabelle in public. Considering M.K. is now pregnant with her second child, the subject has become near and dear to her heart once again.

The actress, who joins stars like Alyssa Milano in the fight against breastfeeding naysayers, explained that breastfeeding for her is a necessity rather than a political statement:

"I support every woman's choice in what she wants to do and whatever makes them happy, but for me, I did nurse my child and I literally breastfed everywhere. There were many times where I didn't bring a cover with me, and so I just did it in a restaurant, in the subway, in the park, at airports, and in planes. Why did I do it in public? Because I had to feed my child. She's hungry. I need to feed her whether it's out of a bottle or out of my boob no matter where I was."

Well, that's a very reasonable position. What parent would let their child go hungry for the sake of not pissing someone off?

Elaborating on her stance, the beauty argued that America sexualizes the breast too much for its own good:
