Lil' Kim invited Rich Homie Quan out to rap part of "Get Money," and although things started off fine, he eventually grew quiet and appeared to forget the song's lyrics. After completing the first rhyme, Rich Homie Quan took to a corner of the stage and improvised hype words to keep the audience on board.
Lil' Kim held her own without his help, but the whole performance ended up feeling soft. Rich Homie Quan sure looked the part, though. He took the stage wearing Biggie's iconic Coogie sweater (via XXL Mag).
Twitter, naturally, wasn't about to let him get away with anything. Viewers have been overloading the social media platform with all sorts of criticisms, including the fact that he chose to dress the part but couldn't actually play the part. See the tweets and watch the flub here.

Perez Hilton managed to get a full version of the video, and he filmed a brief segment of it to share with his readers (via Idolator). Rather than post a clip, he shot a few seconds of cellphone video while watching "Make Me (Oooh)" on his laptop. He comments over most of it so there's not much by way of audio.
In the brief video, Spears stands front and center wearing a wrapped bathing suit incredibly close to the one seen in her sneak peek for new perfume Private Show. She's surrounded by male dancers dressed in a variety of nude colored bottoms to give an added provocative touch to her new music. Check out the snippet here.
In it, BANKS and several dancers that look closer to mannequins than humans contort together in a warehouse. The dancers also wear masks featuring her likeness, which, combined with the setting's low lightning and neon pink touches, lends the whole affair a disturbed feel.
"F- With Myself" is quiet in places but chill overall. It relies on a big, upfront beat and moody synths to carry Banks' perturbed vocals. "This song is about being your own best friend, your own mother, and your own lover," she said in a press release. Read more here.
