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.”

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.

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.

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.
Kendrick Lamar got the rap game so effed up, his contemporaries are using the celebrity of 7 year old kids to distract listeners from their lyrical deficiency. The only thing discernible on Meek Mill’s “diss” to Kendrick Lamar, “Ooh Kill Em,” is his Terio reference: “ooooh! ooooh!” Read More →
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.

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.
