Kendrick Lamar Appears To Diss Drake Over Ghostwriting

(Radio.com) "I cannot call myself the best rapper if I have a ghostwriter," Kendrick Lamar remarks in a new interview with Rolling Stone. While not specifically calling out Drake, some of the Compton rapper's comments could be pointed in the Canadian artist's direction.

When asked if it's ever okay for a rapper to have a ghostwriter, Lamar said that it depends "on what arena you're putting yourself in." Drake himself has been the center of a ghostwriting controversy since Meek Mill tweeted that the "Hotline Bling" star "don't write his own raps" in 2015.

"If you're saying you're a different type of artist and you don't really care about the art form of being the best rapper, then so be it," Lamar continued. "Make great music. But the title, it won't be there." Read more here.

Michael Jackson's 'Thriller' 3D Premiere Announced

(Radio.com) Michael Jackson's 'Thriller" was the original blockbuster music video: The 14-minute short film set the culture ablaze with visual iconography, energetic dance sequences and a creepy, horror aesthetic.

This year, 'Thriller" will get the film festival treatment it deserves in Venice, where a 3D version of the video will debut. Adapted as Michael Jackson's Thriller 3D, the audio and visuals have been fully remastered and converted for three-dimensional display. Representatives for the project insist that director John Landis' original edit will not be altered or recut in any way. Landis and Jackson collaborated on the script for the video, which features a date gone horribly awry.

"I am so happy to have had the chance not only to restore but enhance Michael Jackson's Thriller," Landis said. 'We took full advantage of the remarkable advances in technology to add new dimensions to both the visual and the audio bringing it to a whole new level. Even though Thriller was shot traditionally, I was able to use the 3-D creatively. Let me just warn you, there is a rather shocking surprise in there!" Read more here.

Macklemore Announces Gemini North American Tour

(Radio.com) Macklemore is going on tour. The "Marmalade" rapper posted a ridiculous video Wednesday (August 9) to announce that he would be hitting the road this fall, but not before he hit a target with his bow and arrow.

"If I miss it, I will stay home, get into progressive drum and bass and pierce my p—-," the rapper joked before proceeding to miss the target. "That's it, I'm getting a d— ring."

After several more unsuccessful shots, Macklemore announces that he has "changed his mind" and will go on tour anyway. The Gemini North American tour kicks off this fall on Oct. 8 in Portland, Oregon. Watch the hilarious video and check out the tour dates here.

Diplo Reacts To Rihanna Diss With New Joke

(Radio.com) Diplo is the king of reveling in what others may perceive to be embarrassing moments and the star took to social media to joke off the latest diss, this one courtesy of Rihanna.

From Katy Perry ranking him at number three of her ex's bedroom skills to his ability to make light of Rihanna saying one of his songs sounded like "airport reggae," he leans into these situations with humor.

Rihanna apologized for the comments, sort of, writing "my bad @Diplo," with the hashtag #dutyfree. The international DJ has clapped back with even more humor by posting cover art for a fake single (we presume) "Reggae Music for Airports." Check out Diplo's joke here.

Gorillaz Release New 'Strobelite' Music Video

(Radio.com) The Gorillaz new music video for 'Strobelite" is, perhaps, best described as a hybrid of a disco celebration, an '80s neon-infused nightclub and a Tetris-inspired video game.

The newly released promotional clip features Pos from Del La Soul, Vince Staples and the Savages' Jehnny Beth, who all collaborated on the group's latest album Humanz.

The video was directed by pseudonymous "Raoul Skinbeck," a friend of the band member Murdoc Niccals and illustrates the original theme of the album, which was meant to be 'a party for the end of the world," said frontman Damon Albarn in a statement. Watch "Strobelite" here.

To make matters even more adorable, Clarkson replied, writing, "Ladies, what?! So nice. Big fan of both of you as well! I say this calls for a beautiful trio performance at some point," with several smiling and party hat emojis. Check out the exchange here.

Kelly Rowland Is Working On A New Album

(Radio.com) It's been four years since Kelly Rowland released a studio album, but the singer and former Destiny's Child member is spending time in the studio. In a new interview Rowland said she's writing and recording with Syd of The Internet.

"Syd's voice just sucks you in," Rowland told The Fader. "Everything about her is just so effortless. I love working with her in the studio. I think I played that song ["Girl"] at least a thousand times. It makes me feel sexy, feminine, and easy."

Rowland said the run-up to her next album has been a period of soul-searching. "You have this moment to evolve and you have a platform to say something," she said. "Right after I had my son I didn't know what I wanted to talk about. I just found this place and found a groove and everything started to pop into place. I'm really excited." Read more here.

Sinead O'Connor Shares Her Emotional Struggles Online

(Radio.com) Sinead O'Connor has posted an emotional message on social media, in which she discusses her struggle with depression and urges viewers to try to understand how crippling mental illness can be.

In a 12-minute video posted on her Facebook, O'Connor cries on camera and explains that she's all alone and desperately struggling to survive. "I am now living in a motel in New Jersey. I'm all by myself," she said. "Mental illness, it's like drugs, it doesn't [care] who you are, and equally what's worse, the stigma doesn't care who you are."

She added that her family has abandoned her, criticized them for not taking care of her for the past two years and said she only has one person she can trust. "There's absolutely nobody in my life except my doctor, my psychiatrist – the sweetest man on earth, who says I'm his hero – and that's about the only thing keeping me alive at the moment… and that's kind of pathetic."

Said she made the video to try to inform the public what she many others are going through. "I want everyone to know what it's like, that's why I'm making this video," she said. "I am one of millions — people who suffer from mental illness are the most vulnerable people on earth, we can't take care of ourselves, you've got to take care of us."

"My entire life is revolving around not dying, and that's not living," she added. "And I'm not going to die, but still, this is no way for people to be living." Watch O'Connor's full post here.

Key, playing the part of an agitated camp counselor, repeatedly tries to get them to quiet down with little luck. Toward the end of the sketch, Crystal shows up as "Billy from Camp Buttonwood." Watch the full clip here.
