- 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.”
- Kendrick Lamar fired shots at Meek Mill at his New York show.
- Mac Miller and Big Sean were surprise guests at Ariana Grande’s Club Nokia show in Los Angeles. They performed “The Way” and “Right There” respectively.
- Jimmy Fallon and his good boy friend Justin Timberlake have teamed up for yet another potential viral video—”Evolution of End Zone Dancing.”
- This ambiguous photo paired with this vague Daily Mirror interview is indisputable proof that Pharrell will definitely maybe be on One Direction’s Midnight Memories album.
- Lady Gaga says Azealia Banks has a bad attitude…and it has an odor. Of course Azealia wasted no time responding.
- Although Waka Flocka Flame, Dizzy Wright and Rich Homie Quan already have records in their catalogue using the catchphrase “bout that life,” Rick Ross, French Montana, Meek Mill and Diddy felt the need to reiterate the lifestyle on Self Made Vol. 3 track.
- Kelly Rowland caught up with former Destiny’s Child member Ellen Degeneres and talked about co-judging The X Factor with daddy-to-be Simon Cowell.
- Cam’Ron’s Ghetto Heaven is due out on October 1st, but ahead of its release, the New York rapper releases “Next Up” featuring Ms. Hustle, Loaded Lux and Chris Miles.
- Luke James sat down with the insufferable Breakfast Club to discuss his pre-album Whispers In the Dark, being a liar in the past, his new movie Black Nativity and more.
- Queen Latifah thinks that Nicki Minaj is great, but no one has topped artists like Lil’ Kim, Foxy Brown and Missy Elliott.
- Keri Hilson spoke on her gritty role in Vin Diesel’s Riddick, working with director David Twohy and her upcoming album with The Source.
- Pharrell wore an ugly blue, plaid dress-thing for GQ Style.
- Big Sean covers VIBE‘s digital issue and talks old and new love in the interview.
- Miley Cyrus wore a blue fur coat during her performance of “We Can’t Stop” on Le Grand Journal.
- Eddie Murphy has released the video for his jamming new song, “Red Light,” feauting Snoop Lion. Though his outfit is hideous, the video further exposes the song’s message. Mission accomplished.
- Queen of Tennis Serena Williams took some pictures in Central Park. Of course they’re perfect.
- Robin Thicke covers Prestige with his lovely wife Paula Patton.
- Kanye West is coming to a city near you, and he’s bringing hip-hop’s pride and glory, Kendrick Lamar, with him. The “Yeezus” tour—’Ye’s first solo tour in five years—kicks off on October 19th in Seattle. Peep the dates here.
- They say, “Sticks and stones may break your bones, but words will never hurt you,” but Emeli Sandé begs to differ. She brings this concept to life in an alternate video for RedOne and Alex P’s remix of her brilliant song, “My Kind of Love.”
- Katlynn Simone of BET’s The Game chatted with Megan Thomas, Kevin John and Fallon Mercedes of AfterBuzz TV to speak on her role as Brittany “Britt-Bratt” Pitts, her new single “Beautiful Lie” and more.
- Big Sean sneeringly asked, “Who’s Papoose?” on The Breakfast Club, and Remy Ma’s husband responded by mentioning Kanye West’s skirt-wearing ways, Sean’s speaking voice and Pusha T’s delayed album in a scathing diss. Honestly, it’s pretty decent. The cover art is so 2007, though.
- Rick Ross calls himself a “mastermind,” but everything he makes sounds like everything he’s already made. “Reductive” is a more fitting word for the Biggest Bawse. Listen to “No Games” featuring Future.
- Chrisette Michele hasn’t adjusted to the modern way of promoting an album, so Better isn’t receiving the proper attention it deserves. Still, though, the jazzy singer is delivering quality videos. The latest is “Love Won’t Leave Me Out,” and the stunning clip bears a striking resemblance to Khia’s “Been A Bad Girl.” Models included.
- And we thought Kobe Bryant was alone in unfollowing ex-teammates… Steelers coach Mike Tomlin unfollowed players that were cut last week.
- Katy Perry wants to be India.Arie so badly. After becoming one with nature in her visually enthralling “Roar” video, the artificial pop star poses topless in a field of sunflowers for the Prism album cover. Sorry, Mrs. Tarzan, I’m not buying it.
- Speaking of earthy women, Alicia Keys speaks on what it means to be powerful, vulnerable, elegant and tough simultaneously in Originmagazine.
- Meek Mill is doing all he can to make people care about Dreamchasers 3. He recruits Nicki Minaj, Fabolous and French Montana for “I B On That,” a song included on the project. A video will accompany the track.
Paris Hilton hangs with her Cash Money boss Birdman.
Kanye Kardashian performed at a wedding in Kazakhstan, and nobody cared. He was reportedly paid $3 million dollars to perform for the uninterested crowd.
Celine Dion’s new single “Love Me Back To Life,” penned by Sia, would be a hit if it was recorded by a better singer like Rihanna.
Simon Cowell, one of the many vultures feeding off One Direction, thinks he’ll be a good dad.
Miley Cyrus is under the delusional impression that she made history at the 2013 MTV VMAs. I’m sure Hayley Williams of Paramore doesn’t agree with this.
Cleveland kidnapper and rapist Ariel Castro found hanged in his prison cell.
HBO’s hit show True Blood is ending with season 7 in 2014. This is four season past due. Read More
Last night, Big Sean set the internet on fire by releasing scrapped Hall of Fame track “Control (HOF)” to the masses. It featured a verse by Kendrick Lamar where the Compton rapper crowned himself the King of New York and challenged his peers to basically make better music (otherwise feel the wrath of a lyrical assassin).
The challenge was rather cold-blooded, though.
The guy that bodied Jay Z on the remix of “Bitch, Don’t Kill My Vibe” and A$AP Rocky and Drake on “Fuckin’ Problems” had this to say about his peers. Read More
G.O.O.D. Music, TDE and Roc Nation collide.
“Control (HOF)” is a track that didn’t make the final cut of Big Sean’s Hall of Fame, which hits stores on August 27th. Read More
Big Sean told The Breakfast Club that his relationship with Naya Rivera sparked after she followed him on Twitter, and he dropped a few gems in her direct messages. Since then, Naya has ‘treated him like a king’ by cooking his favorite dishes and being an all around amazing companion.
Naya stars as Santana Lopez on FOX’s hit musical comedy-drama, Glee. Despite the show’s success, Miss Rivera is ready to dabble in music. The 26-year-old launches her career with “Sorry,” a bouncy, urban-pop tune featuring the Detroit player himself. Read More
Ariana Grande borrows heavily from her breakout record “The Way,” Mariah Carey and Lil’ Kim’s “Crush On You” for “Right There,” a ’90s-inspired, Harmony Samuels-produced record featuring Big Sean. Ariana’s debut album, Yours Truly, is due out on September 3rd. Read More
