16 Arrested In Kim Kardashian Robbery Case

(Radio.com) French police have arrested 16 suspects in connection with the robbery of Kim Kardashian West in October. The reality star was robbed at gunpoint in Paris when five men entered her luxury apartment dressed as law enforcement.

Several of the suspects have records for armed robbery, reports the Guardian. Many were arrested in Paris, as well as Normandy and the French Riviera, and two men have been identified from fingerprints left at the apartment in which Kardashian West had been staying. Additionally, money and documents stolen from Kardashian West were found during the police raids.

Kardashian West was alone at the apartment while her German bodyguard, Pascal Duvier, was at a club with her sisters. Previous reports indicate the five men threatened the night porter with a knife, forcing him to show them where she was staying. Read more here.

Dave Grohl Reveals Kurt Cobain's Legendary Metal Band Influence

(Gibson) Dave Grohl has confirmed at fact that devoted Nirvana fans have known for years - specifically, that Kurt Cobain was huge fan of Black Sabbath. Speaking with Mojo magazine, Grohl said Cobain's small-town roots played into his fascination with the heavy metal pioneers.

"Kurt really liked Ozzy [Osbourne]," said Grohl. "Growing up in a town like Aberdeen (in Washington State) and hearing a band like Black Sabbath - it's a sweet release. Suddenly there's something outside your small-town world you can relate to when you can hear that in someone else's music."

The former Nirvana drummer went on to say that Sabbath's influence is especially detectable on Nirvana's debut album, Bleach. ""The first Nirvana record … which I don't play on but I love, you listen to some of those songs and it's a guitar line, a bass line, a vocal and thundering drums. There's lot of Black Sabbath in that, for sure."

Grohl himself is a devotee of Black Sabbath, and indeed he has written songs for Osbourne. Read more here.

Mariah Carey Tells Her Side Of NYE Performance Disaster

(Radio.com) Mariah Carey tells her side of the story about her New Year's Eve performance disaster in a new audio message on Twitter. In the nearly two-minute clip, the singer explains in her own words what happened during her set on Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve with Ryan Seacrest.

"It's not practical for a singer to sing live and be able to hear themselves properly in the middle of Times Square," she explains in her lengthy message.

"I haven't really addressed the situation that happened on New Year's Eve, and in time I will," she said in the recording. 'But for now, I want everyone to know that I came to New Year's Eve in New York in great spirits and was looking forward to a celebratory moment with the world."

Then she blamed the production team for the debacle. "It's a shame that we were put into the hands of a production team with technical issues who chose to capitalize on circumstances beyond our control. It's not practical for a singer to sing live and be able to hear themselves properly in the middle of Times Square with all the noise, the freezing cold, the smoke from the smoke machines, and thousands of people celebrating, especially when their ear monitors were not working at all," she further explained.

Gucci Mane Feared He Would Eventually Kill Someone

(Radio.com) When Gucci Mane was sent to prison in 2014 for firearms possession, his life of crime was the headline. Today, his full-swing comeback puts a different slant on his experiences with addiction, mental illness and his subsequent recovery.

In a candid sitdown with ESPN's Highly Questionable, Mane opened up about the PTSD that made him paranoid and agitated. "I felt like I was going to kill somebody for trying to kill me," explained Main of his anxiety. The rapper detailed his fear of killing someone else in self defense, not of being killed himself. "I felt that it was inevitable that I was going to hurt somebody."

Because criminal charges loomed over his early success, Mane said he struggled to enjoy his career highs. Since his release from prison, Mane has undergone a new health and fitness routine and sobriety, and the rapper says he feels much better. In the interview, Mane discusses the process of detoxing from "lean," the codeine beverage also known as "purple drank."

'I'm blessed, man, to even be here today," he said. 'I'm proud of what I did. I'm proud that I'm still here. I'm proud that I got past all of it." Watch the full interview here.

Mike Tyson to Train Chris Brown For Fight Against Soulja Boy

(Radio.com) Former heavyweight champ Mike Tyson vowed to teach Chris Brown "every dirty little trick" in order to ensure a knockout in the upcoming celebrity boxing match against Soulja Boy.

"So, it's confirmed. I just got off the phone with Frenchy and Chris Brown. I'm training Chris. He chose me as his trainer to take on Soulja Boy. And Soulja Boy, what the f— are you talking about? Only think I'm gonna teach him is to bite somebody's ear. Yeah, that's right. I'm gonna teach him every dirty trick in the book to knock you out, cause I'm not gonna teach him how to run!"

The news that Tyson would serve as Brown's trainer was revealed last week by 50 Cent. 50 was so confident that Brown would pummel Soulja Boy that he reportedly bet Floyd Mayweather $100,000 that he'd win. However, Mayweather is not only serving as the fight promoter, but he will also train Soulja Boy.

50 Cent, though, was unhappy with Mayweather playing double duty — promoting the fight and training one of the fighters — so he countered by recruiting Mike Tyson to train Chris Brown. He explains in an instagram video here.

Eminem Put Kendrick Lamar To Ghostwriter Test

(Radio.com) When Eminem first caught wind of Kendrick Lamar's writing talent, he didn't fully believe it. It seemed like Lamar had to be working with a ghostwriters, so Eminem set out to put Lamar to the test.

He invited him Lamar to contribute a verse for "Love Game," which eventually appeared on his 2013 album The Marshall Mathers LP 2. In an interview with The Zach Sang Show, Ed Sheeran--of all people--recounted a story Rick Rubin told him about the unwitting exam Lamar went through.

"Eminem heard that Kendrick Lamar was the best rapper and he invited him to the studio to get him on a song," Sheeran said. "He arrived and Kendrick came with all his mates and Eminem said, 'I just want you in the studio, just you on your own and then my engineer is gonna come in and then record you doing it, but your mates aren't allowed in."

Eminem left Lamar alone in the studio to work, and work he did. "Kendrick did it, wrote a sick verse, and then everyone came in to listen to it," Sheeran explained. Read more here.

But the "beef" between the two hasn't exactly escalated because Lil Wayne has yet to respond. Watch the latest insult here.

Drake performed the song live for the last time during a New Year's Eve performance in Las Vegas. "If people do the most left field, f—ed up s— to try and tear you down, you still gotta win no matter what," he explained to the crowd, referencing the way Meek came at him in 2015 and provoked his response. "That's the whole key about this s—. So Imma do this song, and this is the last time I'm ever going to do this song."

Drake originally released "Back to Back" in 2015 after Meek Mill accused him of hiring ghostwriters to pen his rhymes. Drake came back with several accusations on his freestyle, not least of which compared Meek's fame and success to his girlfriend Nicki Minaj's. "Is that a world tour or your girl's tour?" Drake asked in one of his verses.

A fan in the audience captured the supposedly last ever performance of "Back to Back." Watch it here.

Later, he'd sing a snippet of the Eagles' "Take It Easy" honoring Glenn Frey, Bowie's "Heroes" and Haggard's "Mama Tried" all on acoustic guitar.

Between gigs, Noelle finds time to enjoy her new surroundings and unearth some discoveries, especially enjoying local restaurants and writing about them. "I have a blog called Adventures with Scaggs, and it's mostly food and travel," says Scaggs. 'I basically use my touring schedule to undertake some adventures. Often we're just going from the venue back to the bus, doing the sound check and press and never get the opportunity to figure out a city. To remember each new place, I decided to really discover restaurants there, mainly because I love eating so much."

One of her recent favorite finds has been Copley's in Palm Springs. "The seafood there is insane. When in the area, be sure to visit Copley's and have the scallops and all of the fish and make sure to polish it off with the basil ice cream!"Read more here.
