Frank Ocean and Iggy Azalea appear on the Nabil-lensed covers for Oyster‘s 103rd issue. Both images are monochrome—Frank’s is under-saturated while Iggy’s is over-saturated. The accompanying interviews are still in the vault, but luckily, we have other business to discuss with these two. Read More
If you follow Chrissy Teigen on Twitter, you’re well aware the Sports Illustrated model is far from shy. If the revealing still above is anything to go by, the brazen beauty will appear topless in her fiancée John Legend’s new video for “All of Me,” a love-soaked ballad dedicated to her.
Evidently onlookers weren’t ready to see the lovely nip (see the uncensored photo here) because Chrissy took to her infamous Twitter account to defend baring her breasts in her husband-to-be’s Nabil-directed video. Read More
- Gucci Mane’s social media reign continues. Some girl recorded the Atlanta rapper squaring off with some guy in Lenox Mall and uploaded it to Instagram. A fight never occurs, but Guwop has been exposed as a dork.
- Sia Furler is finishing her album with producer-songwriter Greg Kurstin this week.
- Jordin Sparks sang a mash-up of Miley Cyrus’ “Wrecking Ball,” Taylor Swift’s “I Knew You Were Trouble,” her own “Battlefield” and some other recognizable songs. It’s pretty awesome too.
- Mariah Carey is surrounded by a sea of hit-making producers (Mike WiLL Made It, Hit-Boy, Jermaine Dupri and Darkchild) in this photo.
- Kanye Kardashian had the audacity to call people “sellouts” and claim his “music” is “good.”
- Don’t judge me, but I just got into Breaking Bad last month. I went on a binge and finished the series in less than a week, courtesy of Netflix. Meanwhile, although the show is ending, a spin-off called Better Call Saul centered around—you guessed it—Saul Goodman is in the works.

- The beautiful and talented Janelle Monáe electrified TODAY with an electrifying performance of “Dance Apocalyptic,” a single from The Electric Lady.
- Ariana Grande had to cancel a few shows due to a vocal cord injury. The “Baby I” singer told fans that the injury resulted from her irresponsibly screaming too much at a party. Sidebar: Assholes, give the girl a break. If you had the No. 1 album in the country, you’d be screaming too.
- Lil’ Kim is going “Back 2 Da Streetz” for her ‘Hard Core’ mixtape, which his due out on October 31st. She has unveiled the cover, but someone is noticeably missing.
Drake sort of pays tribute to the legendary Wu-Tang Clan on a track named after them on his forthcoming Nothing Was the Same album.
Ahead of the LP’s September 24th release date, the Noah “40″ Shebib-produced “Wu-Tang Forever,” which sample’s Wu-Tang’s “It’s Yourz” from their ’97 album Wu-Tang Forever, has surfaced. Lots of profanity is used throughout the track, which is totally shocking coming from this kid.
With Victoria Monet on the hook, Nas performed “You Wouldn’t Understand” on The Arsenio Hall Show before an audience consisting of rhythmless white girls. Life Is Good is in stores now.
A day prior, Mac Miller also appeared on the new late-night show to perform a mashup of “Aquarium” and “Avian,” both lifted from his Watching Movies with the Sound Off album. Read More

- It’s been a slow [entertainment] news day, so let’s just take a second to appreciate God’s gifts.
- The Game donates $10,000 to pay for funeral of slain 6-year-old girl. He shared a photo of Tiana with a touching caption.
- A$AP Rocky acted ignorantly while standing next to openly gay former NBA player Jason Collins at the VMAs, and he’s apologetic for seeming homophobic. He says he isn’t homophobic because he knows gay people and “don’t give a fuck if you gay or you not.” (Isn’t this equivalent to white racists running to the “I have black friends”-defense?)
- Alicia Keys has unveiled her new, Fall 2013 line of Reebok Classics AKW (dubs).
- Alicia isn’t the only R&B diva with a shoe line; Keyshia Cole teamed up with Steve Madden for a collection of heels.
- 35-year-old rappers Fabolous and 2 Chainz team up for “When I Feel Like It,” a contender for “Weakest Tracks of 2013.” The music video has a lot of half-naked models in it, so that’s a plus.
- Neon Hitch is such a unique character, so it would behoove many as to why she’d cover Miley Cyrus’ generic hit, “We Can’t Stop.” However, give the gypsy pop princess’ rendition a spin. It’s awesome.
- Speaking of covers and unique artists, Mateo put a lot of work in his “kitchen cover” of Drake’s “Hold On, We’re Going Home.”

Ryan McDermott is certainly on the wave of new artists that ‘got next’, but his latest offering, “Overflow,” just ain’t it. The beat is too busy and boisterous, and his delivery isn’t the smoothest.
Featured guest Sabi’s subtle and sultry approach to the track is much more fitting overall, but considering her role as a featured guest, she’s not around long enough to salvage the GOOD Music singer’s self-produced track. Read More
