Hmmm?


kesha-dr-luke-ascap

 

In early January, 2014, multi-platinum pop star Kesha (“Tik Tok”, “Animal”, “C’mon”, “Die Young,” etc) entered herself into a treatment center to deal with her anorexia and bulimia. At the time, Kesha via her outspoken mother Pebe Sebert, blamed Kesha’s body image problems on criticism from her label head/producer Dr. Luke. After spending 2 months in rehab (with mom Pebe checking in as well to be with her daughter and get treatment for “post-traumatic stress”), Kesha was released and posted online that she’s back to making music. But today, she dropped a bombshell lawsuit, accusing Dr. Luke of nearly 10 years of abuse, ranging from sexual assault to forced drug use to battery. Much more serious than the original fat-shaming claims.

Update: Dr. Luke has responded with his own lawsuit…charging Kesha with extortion.

Philly fans have always had a reputation as being a rowdy bunch, but these recent string of incidents at their stadium may be new lows. The first report actually was a heinous act done on a well known Eagles. fan. Yesterday (Oct 12)), a drunk woman stole a prosthetic leg from a local legend named Sonny Forriest Jr.–a staple at Philly’s Lincoln Financial Field. Authorities later found the leg on the local septa train. Why?1

That wasn’t all that happened in the City of Brotherly Love, though. During the game, one unsuspecting Giants was actually pelted with garbage and taunted as he tried to find his seat from the concession stand. Bad enough, his the G-men got blown out.

drake threatens stripper

Drake may be under police investigation after a stripper claimed his people threatened her life after a one-night stand, according to TMZ. The stripper, Jhonni Blaze, alleges the OVO rapper began harassing her via text for fear she would go public with the story. She then claims several people from Drake’s camp “came to her house, banged on her door and threatened her life.” While Houston PD confirms they are investigating a “possible celebrity,” sources close to Drake say the allegations are false. Either way, this is one of the most hilariously ironic stories of the year.

rihanna bond girl

As sure as he’ll overthrow a WoMD-wielding villain with nothing more than exploding gadgets and heaps of charm, James Bond has always bagged himself a beauty (lucky guy, huh?). From Honor Blackman to Halle Berry, the Bond movies have starred seriously pretty faces over the last 50 years. And could Rihanna be next in line?

wiz

This is definitely one of the sadder divorce reports we’ve had to post. According to TMZ, Amber Rose has filed for divorce from her husband, Wiz Khalifa. The couple officially got married last summer and have a son together, Sebastian, who turns two next February. Divorce papers obtained by the reported says Amber cited “irreconcilable differences” as the reason for divorce, and that she is seeking full legal and physical custody of their 1-year-old son (with visitation rights).

Miss Info: I know there have been rumors of some Amber and Nick Cannon connection. And in the past year, there have been other grumblings about Wiz Khalifa, with folks pointing at various instagram photos and captions. But despite all that, I am honestly really surprised by this split. Maybe it was the seemingly grounded way that both husband and wife navigated their very public relationship from the dating stage, to engagement, to pregnancy, to marriage. Maybe it was the way that Wiz never wavered in his open adoration of his wife, both in interviews, and even in one- on-one private conversation over the years and even recently. Either way…I’m sorry to see these two fall apart, and I’m sure they will do what’s best for the most important part of the equation, their son Sebastian.

Really makes you wonder if any publicized and high-profile romances can ever survive…unless the couple fully allows their union to be both personal and business. You get the sense that The Carters have that amount of control. But who else?

Update: Amber has tweeted about the ‘cheating’ rumors

keyshia

The woman reportedly assaulted at Birdman’s condo by Keyshia Cole has been the victim of mistaken identity in the “unwarranted” attack. According the TMZ, the victim’s name is Sabrina Mercadel and, allegedly, she’s been a Cash Money employee for over a decade. Sources tell TMZ Sabrina was was walking out of a bathroom when Keyshia attacked her for no reason. Apparently, there also 4-5 other people present.

There’s also a string of deleted social media messages from Keyshia. Judging from them, I think it’s say to safe she was “on one” that night.

dr dre detox

During his recent interview on writer Jeff Weiss and rapper Nocando’s “Shots Fired” podcast, Dawaun Parker shared the best insight into Dr. Dre’s near-mythical Detox album we’ve had in a long time. According to the former Aftermath producer (who worked on Eminem’s Relapse and 50 Cent’s Curtis among other records), Dre actually scrapped the Detox title a couple of years ago, although he wouldn’t reveal the new name.

Parker also says that Dr. Dre has a specific plan to release his album, but he’s waiting on the right single to lead with (and this is despite not letting anything that’s below a 10/10 even get recorded). Ultimately, it’s still up to the Doc if — or when — the album will ever see the light of day. “I feel like one day, he’s gonna wake up and say, ‘today’s the day and I’ll put it out.’ Because the music’s been there,” Dawaun concludes.

Although Royce Da 5’9″ and DJ Premier’s collaborations are relatively slim, cuts like “Boom,” “Hip Hop” and, most recently, “Second Place” are the makings of a classic catalog. Well, good news, because it looks like the pair are working on a full-length project together.

Nickel Nine and Premo just dropped an appetizing teaser video for “PRhyme,” and although it doesn’t explain what “PRhyme” is exactly, the clip sees Royce waxing poetic over a classic dusty Preem beat. However, let it be known, “this is for the real hip-hop n****s who would never, ever, ever ask me if I’m here to replace Guru.”

Stay tuned for the official announcement coming soon.

NERD

Pharrell may have condemned his In My Mind phase as having “no purpose,” but we’re sure nobody would mind seeing him revisit his N*E*R*D days — and that might just be a reality. According to Mass Appeal, both Pharrell and Shay Haley hinted at new N*E*R*D music during P’s performance at the iTunes Festival in London last night.

twitter buy button

Twitter had made some big changes over the last 12 months, including a completely new profile layout and the first ever real-time Billboard chart, but this latest one is easily their most commercially ambitious. Today the social network began testing a new “buy” button, a feature which allows users to purchase products — whether it be clothes, electronics or indeed music — directly from their timeline.

Pharrell, Wiz Khalifa and Eminem are among some of the early musical adopters of this new service, while brands and organizations like Home Depot, Burberry and (RED) are also onboard. The button is currently only available to a small percentage of U.S. users during its testing stage, but Twitter promise that number “will grow over time.”

See how the new feature works below…
