In an Instagram post made a couple of hours ago, Kanye West says he will not perform at Coachella unless Billie Eilish apologizes to Travis Scott for her apparent diss a few days ago.

In case you missed it, a fan needed an inhaler mid-concert at a Billie Eilish show earlier this week in Atlanta. Once the fan was taken care of, without naming names, she said, “I wait for people to be okay before I keep going.” Understandably, this was assumed to be a dig at Travis Scott, who kept performing as people died at Astroworld Festival a few months ago — he later claimed to have no idea that a stampede was taking place.

Kanye West, Billie Eilish and Harry Styles are all scheduled to headline Coachella this year.

According to multiple reports, Sherri Shepherd is in talks to replace Wendy Williams permanently as the talk show host continues to deal with health matters.

The former co-host of The View has been a fan favorite among stand-ins and has delivered the best ratings of the season. Reports say that she is close to finalizing a deal which would see the The Wendy Williams Show renamed for Sherri Shepherd as early as September.

If you watched the Janet Jackson documentary this past weekend, you probably came away with a new appreciation for the woman and the Jackson family at large. Joe Jackson might’ve been a tough and sometimes abusive father, but his rigidity produced a family of world-class performers.

The first part of the documentary was full of clips of The Jacksons (back when they were still called The Jackson 5), and we’re reminded of just how impactful they were at such a young age. Last week, we honored Janet Jackson with our TBT selection, and after watching her documentary, it’s only right that we pay homage to the gods that were Jackie, Tito, Jermaine, Marlon and Michael.

“The Love You Save” was The Jacksons’ third single, and their third out of four consecutive No. 1 singles — a first for a new act and a record that stood till Mariah Carey logged her first five singles at No. 1. The Jacksons’ discography is chock full of classics, but this one is a personal favorite and one of the best vocal performances Lil Mike ever gave. Click play.

It came a few months late, but Doja Cat has finally released a video for the Nicki-Minaj-inspired “Get into It (Yuh).” The video sticks to the extraterrestrial theme of the Planet Her era, with the rapper and singer rocking an armored spacesuit as she hits her boom kack and bitch-slaps an alien. Check the video out below.

Former Miss USA Cheslie Kryst — who won the crown in 2019 — has reportedly died by suicide — she is believed to have jumped from the 29th floor terrace of her apartment building in midtown Manhattan, where she was last seen. Her body was found around 7am earlier today.

The beauty queen posted on Instagram just hours before her death, with a caption that read, “May this day bring you rest and peace.” A statement from the beauty queen’s family said that her “great light was one that inspired others around the world with her beauty and strength.”

Cheslie Kryst was 30 years old.

An unnamed woman — described as a professional choreographer, dancer, model and musical artist— is accusing Chris Brown of drugging and raping her on a yacht parked by Diddy’s Star Island mansion. She says the singer had invited her to Diddy’s house after seeing her on a FaceTime call with a friend. When she arrived, she says Chris Brown have a her a drink, after which she started to lose consciousness.

According to the woman, Chris Brown took her to a room on the yacht, shut the door, and raped her. She also claims that he ejaculated in her and texted her to take Plan B the next day, which she did.

According to TMZ, the incident took place on December 30, 2020. The accuser’s lawyers, #ArielMitchell and #GeorgeVrabeck, say their client did not report the alleged rape to cops at the time because she was a medical student and was embarrassed.

The woman is suing Chris Brown for $20 million in damages. The singer has since responded to the headline, calling it a “pattern of cap.”

Tomorrow, the self-titled documentary on Janet Jackson’s life — which also marks the 40th anniversary of her self-titled debut album — premieres on Lifetime and A&E. In anticipation and celebration of this event, it is only right that we take a look back at one of Janet’s greatest hits.

In January of 1987, Janet released “Let’s Wait Awhile” as the fifth single from her third (and breakthrough) album, Control. The song was co-written by Ms. Jackson, Jimmy Jam & Terry Lewis, and Melanie Andrews, who was Janet’s best friend at the time. It was inspired by Melanie’s real-life apprehension about giving up the cookies to her then-boyfriend.

Though a beautifully written song, “Let’s Wait Awhile” is one of the more blatant examples of plagiarism you will find. The song lifts the melody and piano line from America’s “Daisy Jane”, but luckily, Janet & co. settled out-of-court with Gerry Beckley (who wrote “Daisy Jane”) early.

“Let’s Wait Awhile” offered a welcomed alternative in an industry that isn’t known for being chaste. Also, abstinence theme was particularly popular at a time where every one was freaking out about AIDS, which had been discovered just five years prior.

“Let’s Wait Awhile” would become Janet Jackson’s fifth top five single on the Billboard Hot 100, peaking at No. 2.



This past Monday, Cardi B  won her libel lawsuit against gossip blogger Tasha Kebe — better known as Tasha K. The blogger was sued in 2019 after she reported that the rapper was a former prostitute who had contracted STDs.

Cardi has been awarded $1 million in general damages, $250,000 for medical expenses, $1.5 million in punitive damages, and $1.3 million in legal fees, bringing the total sum to roughly $4.1 million.

Tasha K has since posted a 12-minute video statement explaining that the verdict against her came as “no shock“ and that she wouldn’t change anything about it, but “intends to fight until the truth is out.”
