It's always been, 'Luke it's 11, now we gotta go do our chili dog shopping, and she takes me to the grocery store and it's just her time to have with me."

Standing shirtless against a wall, Soulja Boy addressed his fans. "I just want to send an apology," he said. "Over the past couple of months, I've been acting out, I've been wildin' out, and at the end of the day it's not about who start the beefs, it's about who end them."

He talked about the emotional state he's been in ever since his mother was taken to the hospital. Although he doesn't go into details about what sent her there, he explained that it left him feeling raw. "No amount of money, no amount of cars, no amount of fame would make me be alright, you know, with knowing my mom's sick or anything happen to my mom," he said. "I love my mother."

That love translated into acknowledging his actions in recent days. "I know she's not proud of my actions and what I've been doing recently," he said. Soulja Boy added at the end, "I want to make music with Chris Brown, Yachty, Quavo, everybody." Watch the video here.

Mariah Carey Laughs Off Her NYE Performance Debacle 2017 In Review

Mariah Carey Laughs Off Her NYE Performance Debacle was a top 17 story of January 2017: (Radio.com) So, you're Mariah Carey, one of the world's biggest stars for a quarter of a century, and you fail on national TV, big time. How do you handle it? As it turns out, you handle it with humor.

For those just waking up now: in case you were totally absent from social media on New Year's Eve (and if so, good for you!), Mariah Carey had a disastrous performance--or perhaps, non-performance is a better way to describe it--on Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve last night.

As CBS News reported, Carey "paced the stage without singing. It's unclear what exactly were the technical difficulties, but the disaster was obvious as it unfolded live."

Predictably, twitter erupted with mockery, including memes about 2016 claiming its final victim (Mariah Carey's career).Carey's response was a single [NSFW] tweet, "S---- happens. Have a happy and healthy new year everybody! Here's to making more headlines in 2017."Read more here.

Wildmon's criticism was based on Underwood's support of gay marriage, USA Today reports.

Spice Girls Sporty And Posh Reunite 2017 In Review

Spice Girls Sporty And Posh Reunite was a top 17 story of January 2017: (Radio.com) For all the kvetching about 2016, one of the year's biggest disappointments was the Spice Girls' failure to celebrate the 20th anniversary of "Wannabe" as a fivesome.

Geri Halliwell (Ginger), Emma Bunton (Baby) and Melanie Brown (Scary) formed a spin-off called GEM, while Victoria Beckham (Posh) and Mel C (Sporty) opted out.

It was widely assumed that Posh was too busy with her fashion empire, while Sporty said the time just wasn't right. The two holdouts gave a performance together at the Beckham's New Year's Eve Party, where they fittingly sang "2 Become 1," sending a message of solidarity to the Spice Girls who "reunited" without them.

True to form, Sporty carries the vocal responsibilities while Posh kind of dances and encourages her former bandmate. The private event footage surfaced on YouTube as a compilation of Snapchats, which reveal that Mel also sang Sia's "Cheap Thrills" to ring in 2017. Read more and watch the performance here.
