"So excited for 2017. Taking a break from music and the spotlight.. I am not meant for this business and the media," she tweeted on Tuesday (October 4) along with an emoji waving goodbye.

Someone in the crowd captured about five grainy minutes of Daft Punk on stage at the France's Carros Festival in 1995. In the footage, which initially surfaced on Reddit, neither member wears their typical masks or helmets. They play their single "Da Punk," which later appeared on their debut album Homework.
The footage has reignited rumors that the duo will tour, but insiders insist they have no plans to do so. Daft Punk hasn't officially toured since 2007, although they did make an appearance at the 2014 GRAMMYs where they performed their single "Get Lucky" with Pharrell and Stevie Wonder. Watch the footagehere.
That lawsuit was moving along until Heller's sudden death in September, throwing the fate of future litigation into question. Heller's defamation claim charges that the movie depicts him encouraging a young, naive artist not to hire an attorney to advise with negotiation.
Heller, 75, died last month when he suffered a heart attack behind the wheel of his car, causing a crash. Without a living plaintiff, his estate will need to name a successor-in-interest to pursue the legal case. Heller's attorney Michael Shapiro requested a stay through October 20 to line up such a successor and move the complaint ahead. Read morehere.
But it's impossible to overlook one enormous, internet-breaking incident from the last two years, perhaps Solange's greatest hit since "Sandcastle Disco": her fight with brother-in-law Jay Z in an elevator, following the 2014 Met Gala.
Family Guy has not forgotten the footage. In a brief clip from the show, titular family guy Pete Griffin stands in the elevator to witness the dust-up, interjecting various zingers and observations: "That's gonna leave a mark!"
Below, watch Seth MacFarlane's comic send-up of the elevator ride that will live in infamyhere.

Mendes posted a black and white video on Instagram Tuesday (October 4), writing, "Trying to dig deep into guitar world with my off time, dont mind my ridiculous movements and weird faces hahaha. Love this JM type groove!!"
The song he plays has a very relaxed vibe with the kind of beachy finger work that Mayer tended to prefer in his earlier music. Mendes has expressed an interest in collaborating with Mayer on something, but unfortunately they weren't able to work together this time around.
He told Rolling Stone, "I didn't get to work with him, but he listened to a bunch of the songs and gave great pieces of advice through the music and production and lyrics and stuff, especially on songs like 'Three Empty Words' and 'Ruin' and 'Patience.' It was great to have him listening through it all." Watch the videohere.
In a new interview with The Guardian, Bowie collaborator and saxophonist Donny McCaslin discusses what it was like working with the music icon in his final days.
'There's so much emotion," McCaslin says of Bowie's death. 'It's devastating. We had this amazing connection and then he was gone." In an interview at 55 Bar, a Greenwich Village jazz club where Bowie first heard McCaslin and his band in 2014, the jazz performer discusses working on Blackstar and recalls the day Bowie watched him perform for the first time.
"I was definitely nervous," the saxophonist says. 'I glanced up and saw where he was sitting. I just tried to keep myself grounded and not think about it. But the pressure was on . . . It wasn't a watered-down version of what we do. Afterwards Bowie said: 'Wow, that was really loud!'"Read morehere.
Dressed completely in white -- hat, three-piece suit, larger-than-life clock necklace -- Flavor Flav exuded confidence, but there were a few things that set him off during the comedic interview, and it's unclear whether or not Flav was in on the joke. When co-host Hannibal Buress paused the show for a selfie, a crew guy grabbed Flav's crotch and things quickly went downhill.
"Don't do that. You grab my d—, I will punch you in the f—in' face and we will be fighting right here on this mother f—in' stage," warned Flav.
Andre tried to grab the rapper and Flavor jumped up, ready to fight. Without warning, Andre stripped down, and jumped into a bathtub underneath his desk while Buress kicked Flav in the face. It was totally weird, even by Flav's standards. Watch it allhere.
