It is now near the end of January and in pop culture world it has already started at Magnitude 9 on the Pettiness Richter scale, however we are not here to indulge the #BlacRob, Meek Mill vs 50 Cent, Kanye vs Wiz or B.O.B telling us the world is flat which resulted in Neil deGrasse Tyson dropping a scientific diss track, or R.Kelly saying he was in love with his mum..whew this petty is way too much for January!
