Kid Cudi has some heated words for Drake.
The “Make Her Say” rapper hit back after the Canadian emcee made fun of him for seeking treatment for depression and suicidal thoughts on a new track. Sharing his thoughts about “Two Birds, One Stone,” Cudi tweeted from rehab, “Say it to face, pussy. You think it’s a game. I wanna see you say it to my face. I’ll be out soon. Promise.” As previously reported, Drake called out Cudi on the diss track, which was dropped just weeks after his … read more

There are men who like hats, and then there is Justin Timberlake, whose patronus is a hat.
Surely this is information you already know. When we explored JT’s perennial status as pop culture’s Ultimate Dad™, we acknowledged his zest for fedoras, newsboy caps, and, shit, even vests. But until he showed up wearing a chapeau in support of wife Jessica Biel’s turn in The Book of Love last weekend, I don’t think any of us really got what hats mean to Justin, or what Justin might mean to them.
Here’s … read more

Taraji P. Henson brought out Cookie Lyons’ signature sass when 50 Cent attempted to come for her TV show, Empire. When the rapper, who is also a producer on Starz’s Power, tried to suggest that the rivaling Fox series had dropped in ratings, Henson clapped back. Hard.
“Well look at the bright side at least. You can eat your trophies,” 50 Cent initially wrote in a since-deleted Instagram post of a headline about Empire’s ratings. “I was talking to old girl but you felt like you had to … read more

Madonna’s teenage son will live with her ex-husband, Guy Ritchie. The singer settled her child custody case for 16-year-old Rocco this week, allowing the boy to remain in London with his father.
“The case is settled and everyone agrees that Rocco’s needs changed and he’s going to be living with dad,” Peter Bronstein, attorney for Ritchie, told Page Six. “Everyone’s agreed to that and there’s no further need for any kind of a court case.”
In 2015, Madonna sued Ritchie after Rocco … read more

Shawn Mendes, who graces the cover of Billboard’s September issue, is coming to bat for a seemingly misunderstood Justin Bieber.
Mendes says that the “Sorry” singer deserves some leeway as a human when it comes to making mistakes in the public eye during his adolescence.
“People thought of him as a type of person. But maybe he was the same person the whole time and you guys just didn’t give him a chance to show you who he was,” says Mendes. “Stop ­looking at him in negative view … read more

Jeffree Star is insisting that he is not a thief. Just a day after being accused by longtime friend Kat Von D for allegedly ripping off a logo designed by artist B.J. Betts for his cult favorite makeup brand, the beauty guru is hitting back and giving his side of the story.
In a lengthy 23-minute video titled “Dear Kat Von D, It’s Easier to Tell the Truth,” Star says Von D wrongfully stepped into his business when she decided to publicly accuse him of theft. According to Star, he was initially … read more

The couple that drags Piers Morgan together, stays together.
Chrissy Teigen and John Legend proved that they have no time for trolls when they went in on British journalist, who’s now more known for verbally attacking celebrities more than anything else these days, after Morgan made some insensitive remarks about the late Muhammad Ali just hours after the boxer’s passing.
The Twitter war first started when Morgan claimed that Ali made “far more inflammatory/racist things about white people … read more

T. Swift tells all! When Taylor Swift participated in Vogue’s famed “73 Questions” video series, she candidly — and cannily!— opened up about a wide range of topics. From the lighthearted (like where she stores her endless amount of awards) to the more serious (her feelings of being “slut-shamed” as a 19-year-old), the pop superstar, 26, answered the fashion magazine’s inquiries with no reservations.
Us Weekly has rounded up the 11 most surprising tidbits from the “New Romantics” … read more

Kanye West can explain away that “bitch” is a term of hip-hop endearment all he wants. He can say that Taylor Swift thought his line in “Famous” was hilarious.
Did none of Swift’s nearest and dearest then not know ahead of time that Kanye would be dropping a Taylor-bomb during one of his tunes from The Life of Pablo yesterday? Wouldn’t she have shared that little oh-by-the-way nugget with her boyfriend, Calvin Harris?
Instead, Swift’s closest friends; her brother, Austin; and Harris all seemed pretty … read more

Someone is taking the higher road.
Even though Janet Hubert, who was the original Aunt Viv on Fresh Prince of Bel-Air before she was replaced with Daphne Maxwell Ried in 1993, recently slammed the Will Smith and his family for boycotting the Oscars, Smith only has nice things to say about his former co-star.
In a recent interview with BBC Radio 1Xtra, the 47-year-old told the host that Hubert is a “brilliant” artist with a sense of “powerful dignity” about her. Though it’s clear that … read more

Credit: Dazed and Confused Credit: Dazed and Confused Azealia Banks is from the 212, which is fitting, for she has just canceled her tour for what feels like the 212nd time.
After “rescheduling” a joint tour with artist K. Michelle in August (Michelle dropped out, there was beef), Banks announced last night that her current rescheduled tour will be “rescheduled” once again. (Let’s call a spade a spade: it’s canceled. Coins are being refunded.) Though Banks cites being “very busy at … read more

Kanye West, in accepting his Video Vanguard award at the 2015 MTV Video Music Awards Sunday, questioned the very nature of such award shows, exercised his messiah complex by claiming he “died” so that other artists would be allowed to express opinions, apologized for seeming to disrespect other artists in the past (including Taylor Swift, who presented him with the award), and admitted he smoked a joint before rolling up to the show. 
Oh, and he’s running for president in 2020.

She’s known for her jaw dropping costumes and barely-there outfits.
But Nicki Minaj opted for an elegant look for her night out with rapper boyfriend Meek Mill on Friday, the evening before she is due to open the MTV Video Music Awards.
In a figure hugging floral dress and nude Christian Louboutin heels, the 32-year-old songstress looked every inch the lady. With her long black hair worn straight, and a moss green shoulder bag over her arm, Nicki’s electric pink lips provided a pop of colour to … read more

The MTV Video Music Awards – aka one of, if not, the most hallowed pillars in American pop culture – are this weekend. This is the show responsible for such iconic moments as a wedding dress-clad Madonna writhing around singing “Like a Virgin.” It’s where Diana Ross went to second base with Lil’ Kim because the rapper decided to sport a bedazzled, purple pasty rather than, say, a bra on her left breast. And where Lady Gaga rocked raw beef on the red carpet. It’s where Beyoncé announced she … read more
