Fans will be getting more new music from Wayne soon. Weezy is set to release his Dedication 6 mixtape this coming Monday, Dec. 25 for Christmas. Tha Carter V, which remains in limbo due to disputes with Cash Money, could also be coming at any time.
"Of course you're going to see Tha Carter V," he said in August. "I just don't want to put it out the wrong way. Honestly, I can do what I want at any time. The fans deserve it to be right and that's how it's gonna be. I'ma make sure it's right." Listen to Wayne's new remixeshere.
The clip starts with shots of a couple at a dining room table exhibiting a gamut of expression ranging from sweetness to anger. Another scene depicts the rapper sitting in the middle of a crowd of women, but his eyes are fixed on just one of them.
In a particularly striking shot, Lamar's love interest is covered in glitter and jewels, and not much else. Watch Kendrick's new clip, which contains some nudity,here.
"Is anyone else obsessed with this record? The whole thing?," Lambert posted with a screengrab of the song "Snowflake." "I mean it's up there with Mariah "All I Want For Christmas," which has been my #1 since '94!," the singer added, referencing Mariah Carey's timeless holiday favorite.
Now all we want for Christmas is a Miranda Lambert/Sia collaboration. Ladies? See Miranda Lambert's enthusiastic tweethere.
The group hopped on a New York City tour bus to sing for unsuspecting fans with the help of TripAdvisor. The guys regaled the tourists with holiday favorites like "Jingle Bells" and "We Wish You a Merry Christmas."
"We've been doing a lot of traveling in our very own tour bus, so this is one of our few days off and it's great to be here in New York," the group said of the holiday surprise. Watch ithere.
"The holiday season is supposed to be the most festive and fun time of the year but sometimes it can quickly become a stressful and emotional time. All those plans and expectations of joy can turn tougher than they sound," the singer shared at the start of a length Twitter thread.
"This is especially true for those of us who struggle with mental illness -- be it depression, anxiety, addiction or any other challenges. The holidays break your routine. Sometimes, you're forced to spend time with family you rarely see and don't always get along with," Kesha continued. "Or maybe you're alone when everyone else is with family. Or you are off from work, with more time to think troubling thoughts. Or you are at work and can't be with those you love. Or you are thrust into party situations that tempt your demons."
"It was during the holidays when I hit a low moment and with the help of my mother decided to seek help for my eating disorder," the singer revealed. "Around the holidays, I often feel like I'm supposed to be everywhere, with everyone -- all with the added guilt that it's the season of giving. To fight this, I've developed a mantra: It's not selfish to take time for yourself."
Kesha goes on to suggest ways to cope, including taking a walk in nature and talking to a trusted friend or therapist. She also recommends a pair of meditation apps.
"It's not your responsibility to try to make the whole world happy," the singer implored. "And most importantly just remember to give yourself a break!" Click Kesha's tweet to see the full message threadhere.
As with everything Bieber-related, the spot earned euphoric praise from fans and some skepticism from Justin's haters. A Twitter handle for the Wyoming, Minnesota police department tweeted a warning to drunk drivers: "If you drive drunk tonight we're going to subject you to that Justin Bieber @TMobile Super Bowl Commercial the entire way to jail."
For some, that surely constitutes cruel and unusual punishment. The small-town law enforcement operation earned more than 8,000 retweets and a nation of new fans: They even had to clarify that Wyoming, MN is a city in Minnesota--not the state of Wyoming. Read morehere.

"Instead of being a REAL N-- & leaving the situation with ya head up standing tall, you in ya feelings so you get her house robbed & do f- n-- s- -fronting for the followers she gave you liking pictures & leaving comments on posts that disrespect the woman who gave you life, actually loved yo dusty a-, bought you s- you couldn't ever afford on yo own & even stood by your side when Drizzy bodied you.." he wrote.

Here's the logic behind the NFL's assertion. If you pool together how many people watched the halftime show on all the platforms, that makes for a lot of people. Around 118 million viewers watched Gaga on TV.
But there were also plenty of people watching on the NFL's digital platforms, such as YouTube, Twitter, NFL.com and NFL Mobile. More than 150 million unique people watched the Gaga performance, according to the NFL. Read morehere.

Adele stopped the performance after the first minute to start over because she was having trouble hearing herself. "I'm sorry, I can't mess this up for him," she said, before insisting they start over and apologizing for cursing on live TV.

Alex and Drew made big news earlier this week with the announcement that they will soon be releasing their debut full length album and are launching a major tour.
But not everyone is excited. A men's fashion magazine wrote a critical op-ed about the duo and compared them to the much derided Canadian rock group Nickelback, according to Radio.com.
The mag's tweet read "The Chainsmokers Are the Nickelback of EDM." The Chainsmokers responded to their article in much the same way that Nickelback often reacts to criticism: with humor.
The duo posted a video message online that featured them performing a sober rendition of their current single "Paris" followed by a portion of Nickelback's breakout mega hit "How You Remind Me".
The tweeted "@esquire @Official_MattM It's not like you to say sorry so.. https://t.co/7zS38kauWI- THE CHAINSMOKERS (@TheChainsmokers) January 31, 2017 " Check out the videohere.
