Sinead O'Connor Sorry For Arsenio Hall, Prince Drugs Accusation

(Radio.com) About a week after Prince died in Minnesota, Sinead O'Connor posted on Facebook that the singer was a "long time hard drug user" who "got his drugs over the decades" from Arsenio Hall, implying that he had contributed to the downfall and subsequent death of Prince last April.

The comedian denied the claims and his reps filed a $5 million defamation lawsuit that described O'Connor as a "desperate, attention-seeker … now known perhaps as much for her bizarre, unhinged internet rants as for her music," reports TMZ.

In response, O'Connor wrote another inflammatory post: "I do not like drugs killing musicians. And I do not like Arsenio Hall. He can suck my d—. That is if he isn't too busy sucking someone else's d—." she wrote.

Now, almost a year later, she has retracted her statements. Read her new comments here.

Jidenna Releases 'Bambi' Music Video

(Radio.com) Jidenna learns a hard lesson about "the one who got away" in his new video "Bambi," where a woman he loved and lost lingers still in his memories. "Bambi" appears on Jidenna's debut studio album The Chief, which dropped February 17th.

Directed by Dano Cerny, "Bambi" features cameos by actress Megalyn Echikunwoke (CSI: Miami) and Jay Ellis (Insecure). Echikunwoke plays the song's titular character, who is bound to marry someone else. As Jidenna runs throughout the streets to stop her wedding, he recalls flashbacks of their time together. He stops outside a corner store to sip from his flask, and sees a memory faintly appear in the window.

But no matter how fast he runs, Jidenna makes it to the church too late: Bambi and her husband (played by Ellis) are leaving for their honeymoon. The normally polished Jidenna looks haggard as he lunges to get to Bambi, but the groomsmen keep him at bay and she escapes into the sunset with her new husband. Watch the video here.
