Travis Scott Insists He Didn’t Know About Astroworld Tragedy Until After Show — 1st Interview

Published

For the first time since ten people died at Travis Scott’s Astroworld concert, the rapper sat down for a nearly hour-long interview to tell his side of the story.

Travis Scott says he’s been on an “emotional roller coaster” since tragedy struck his Astroworld Festival in Texas in early November. Ten people were killed during the concert, and dozens more were left injured. Travis faced extreme backlash for not stopping his concert amidst the tragedy playing out in the audience, but in his first interview since the event, he maintains that he had no idea how bad of a turn things had taken while he was onstage.

“I didn’t know the exact details until [after my set], minutes before the press conference that I figured out exactly what happened,” Travis says in his conversation with Charlamagne Tha God. “And even at that moment you’re like….what?” He also insists that he would have stopped the show if he knew that things were getting so out of hand in the crowd. “Anytime you hear something like that, you want to stop the show,” he explains. “You want to make sure fans get the proper attention they need. Anytime I could see anything like that, I did [stop]. I stopped it a couple of times to just make sure everybody was okay. I just really go off the fans’ energy as a collective — call and response. I just didn’t hear that [this time].”

In the interview, Travis also walks Charlamagne through what he saw onstage in front of that huge crowd that night to paint a better picture of why he couldn’t tell what was happening. “You can only help what you can see, and whatever you’re told,” he adds. “Whenever somebody tells you to stop, you just stop.”

Charlamagne points out that Travis has “encouraged” his fans to “rage” at his concerts in the past, but he says that he has always tried to do so in a safe manner. “It’s supposed to be about having fun,” Travis says. “It’s not about harm. It’s about just letting go and having fun. Help others, love each other. It’s not about harm. The show isn’t just rambunctious for an hour, that’s not what it is.”

The rapper, who is expecting his second child with Kylie Jenner, says he’s done a “lot of grieving” while trying to wrap his head around the situation. “I really just wanted to be there and wish I could kind of just hold everyone and heal them, talk to them, have conversations,” he admits, regarding his fans and their loved ones. “It really hurts, man.”

Now, Travis is committed to making sure that nothing like this happens again in the future. “For the first couple of weeks, it was just me sitting down and channeling these emotions and remembering, no one’s going to be a voice for these people,” he reveals. “I have to be a voice so this doesn’t happen at shows in the future, period, and figure out the solution to ensure people’s safety.”

He also hopes to get to the bottom of what exactly happened to lead to such a horrific tragedy taking place. “I have a responsibility to figure out what happened here,” he says. “I have a responsibility to figure out the solution. Hopefully this takes the first step toward us as artists having more of that insight into what’s going on.”

Steelers QB Dwayne Haskins’ Wife Gets Domestic Violence Case Dismissed

During the pandemic, Dwayne Haskins was cut from the Washington Football team for reportedly having too much fun maskless partying. Since then, he has been on his best behavior while being QB2 for the Steelers.

His partying caused him nothing but problems in 2021. In July, he was allegedly assaulted by his wife Kalabrya Gondrezick-Haskins while partying in Las Vegas. Police eventually took his wife in custody after noticing he had a busted lip that needed stitches and he was noticeably missing a tooth.

According to TMZ, police were called to the Cosmopolitan in Las Vegas after reports she was beating the NFL Player, not because he called the police. TMZ is now reporting that on January 10,  Clark County District Attorney dismissed the charges against Kalabrya.

Since then, the couple hasn’t had any other incidents and from their social media activity, it seems they have been happier than ever. This past December the QB even took to Instagram to show his support for his wife graduating, leaving no doubt the couple is on great terms.

Hopefully, this is something they can put behind them and the proper healing has taken place.

Eminem’s Daughter Hailie Wears See-Through Cover-Up Over Her Black Bikini In Vacation Photo

Hailie Jade looked fabulous while on vacation when she rocked a tiny black bikini with a white crochet cover-up.

Hailie Jade, 26, has been having an amazing time on vacation and all of her outfits have been nothing short of perfect, and her latest look may just be our favorite. Eminem’s daughter rocked a tiny black bikini with a see-through white crochet cover-up on top.

Hailie posted the photo of herself sitting on a swing by the beach with the caption, “thinking i could really get used to this tropical aesthetic on my page.”

She wore an underwire bikini top with a pair of matching high-waisted bottoms. On top, she wore a skintight, long-sleeve white mini dress and she accessorized with a zebra print silk headscarf, sunglasses, and a pair of jelly white slip-on mules.

Another one of her outfits from vacay was her plunging black bathing suit with a white button-down cover-up on top. She styled her outfit with a fedora and a pair of rectangular sunglasses.

Perhaps one of our favorite looks from her was her bikini while taking a dip in the pool. She wore a black and white zebra print top with high-waisted black bottoms and oversized black sunglasses. Hailie captioned the photo, “does this pool make my butt look big.”

When Hailie isn’t on vacation rocking swimsuits, she is usually dressed to the nines wearing stylish outfits. One of our favorites was when she wore a fitted short-sleeve white knit crop top with a completely open back that she styled with a pair of skintight leather pants.

Hailie’s crop top featured a turtleneck and was open in the back with a skinny tie at the top of her waist. The high-waisted leather pants were extremely fitted and had a seamless bottom while the bottom half of the pants flared out into a boot cut Hailie topped her look off with a pair of brown snakeskin chunky-heeled booties.
