Meek Mill Arrested For Reckless Endangerment

(Radio.com) Following a performance on The Tonight Show on Thursday (Aug. 17), Meek Mill was arrested for reckless endangerment. The trouble for Meek started the night before when he allegedly rode his dirt bike around New York City without a helmet, popping wheelies, according to the New York Police Department.

It is illegal to ride dirt bikes or ATVs in New York City. A 911 call from a witness led police to the intersection of West 207th Street and Sherman Ave. around 8:23 p.m. Wednesday night, but the Mill and his posse was gone by the time officers arrived, reports Billboard.

Mill might have gotten away with the offense had he not posted a video of himself on the bike zipping through the streets of Upper Manhattan. Read more here.

Kanye West and Kid Cudi Reportedly Working On Secret Project

(Radio.com) Kanye West and former protege Kid Cudi seem to have settled any previous beef, with the pair currently ensconced in Japan working on a mysterious new secret project.

According to a Page Six "source," the dynamic duo is hunkered down in a Japanese studio with only an engineer so "nobody knows what it is -- or what it sounds like . . . There are no professionals in the room."

The pair was recently photographed together in Japan with artist Takashi Murakami (responsible for the artwork on West's album, Graduation) and director Coodie Rock, who posted the pic on his Instagram page. When XXL asked Rock what was going on with the rappers, his response was that "We're talking about bringing in the new year with a bang!"

"They're going to drop some crazy collaboration out of the blue," an "insider" told Page Six. "They're going to drop some surprise project on everybody. They're recording it now." Read more here.

Demi Lovato Reveals Her Plans For Dating Right Now

(Radio.com) As singer Demi Lovato approaches her 25th birthday, she's highly driven and focused, free of worry about past mistakes, and moving forward in the most positive ways she can -- musically, politically and emotionally.

Demi famously split from her boyfriend of six years, Wilmer Valderrama, publicly announcing the breakup on social media in 2016 and most recently parted ways with 31-year-old MMA fighter Guilherme "Bomba" Vasconcelos after a dating for a little over a year.

"I think for me, right now, it's better for me to be single," Demi told 92.3 AMP Radio. "I've always gone from relationship to relationship, or from fling to fling, and always had a guy in my life. I think [there are] some 'love addiction' issues there," she said with a giggle. "So I think it's important that I find my independence and live on my own so that I can learn to love myself fully before I commit so somebody else."

"If I meet somebody or somebody comes into the picture, that's one thing," Demi explained. "But for the most part, I'm making an effort to stay single." That certainly doesn't mean Demi cuts all ties with her former significant others -- but believes it to be a personal choice that everyone needs to make for themselves. Read more here.

Tyler the Creator Reveals He Had A Boyfriend At 15

(Radio.com) Controversial rapper Tyler the Creator's sexuality has been a hot button topic with the release of his latest album, Scum F— Flower Boy. Various song lyrics from the release have been construed by some as Tyler coming out as either gay or bisexual, particularly on the track "I Ain't Got Time!," in which he raps: 'Next line will have 'em like 'Whoa'/I been kissing white boys since 2004."¯

The rapper will surely stoke those fires after a new radio show appearance during which he casually mentions having had a boyfriend when he was still a teenager.

"I had a boyfriend when I was fifteen in f—ing Hawthorne. If that's not open minded, I don't know what is," Tyler stated during Know Wave's show Coop Tunes this week (August 14).

On the show specifically to play music, Tyler touches on a variety of subjects throughout the hour-and-a-half show, including his upcoming Camp Flog Gnaw festival in Los Angeles, which will feature appearances from Lana Del Rey, Solange, Kehlani, Kid Cudi and more. The rapper mentioned that it will be his last show of 2017. Listen to the full (and extremely NSFW) show here.

"I think the reason that what happened to Heather has struck a chord is because we know that what she did was achievable," Bro said (via CBS News). "They tried to kill my child to shut her up. Well, guess what? You just magnified her. I want this to spread. I don't want this to die. This is just the beginning of Heather's legacy."

"The best part of music is -- there's room for everyone to win at the same time. Don't be what's wrong w/da world. Let's be an example of inclusion and celebration.
