"But you got hurt because you did cool by 'Ye // You gave him 20 million without blinkin' // He gave you 20 minutes on stage, f— was he thinkin'? // 'F— wrong with everybody?' is what you sayin' // But if everybody's crazy, you're the one that's insane."
The "20 million" at issue might be a bit misleading: TMZ reports that the figure was given to cover touring expenses and other overhead related to Kanye's Saint Pablo Tour. It's no small amount--but it's reportedly standard operating procedure for major performers. Read morehere.
This caused some controversy because as few as 43,000 koalas are estimated to live in the wild and hundreds are treated each year after dog attacks. It turns out that dogs-chasing-koalas is a pretty big conservation problem Down Under, and local animal rights activists were up in arms about Perry's comment.
"This is just absolute ignorance from Perry and Myer, and inappropriate on so many levels" said Claire Madden, a veterinarian who's worked at Australia Zoo and Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary. "Perry is a role model to so many young people, and this just destroys all the good work we do to try to encourage people not to let their dogs come into contact with koalas." Read morehere.
"I'm super excited about that song, it's the definition of a summer song to me personally," Zedd told Beats 1. "The easiest way to describe it would be a Drake-ish influence sound but very open to do something that sounds unique and different which I love."
"I think it's a really good balance between where he's going with his solo project and where I'm going with my own music," he continued. "It's right in between, without Liam I might've not have finished this song. He really pulled it towards the direction that I would not have and I love where It is. I would say it's probably the most urban-ish influence song I've ever done, It's insanely catchy and I feel like you're gonna hate it after a while because it's so catchy."

Back in March 2016, he responded to fan inquiries about his removal of fan-uploaded footage in a series of now-deleted tweets, writing "Since YouTube doesn't pay equitable licensing fees, isn't that a nonsensical question? Shouldn't ur concerns b directed at YouTube and not here?"

So at the end of each [live] show we've done this big drum send-off," Danielle said. "But since it's never been on an actual track, we added it to the end of a song called 'Let Me Go,' and that's always been our finale, so we thought we should have this specific part on our new record. We all play percussion on the record, and we wanted a song that kind of exploded." Listen to the trackhere.

"It's like the world's about to end and it's just me and the girl, Dawson told People of his new clip. "I wanted the visuals to contrast this bouncy, summer kind of driving song.
"It's playing off of that first line of like, 'Hey, I know the woes and the weight of the world can get you down, but don't let it.' So essentially, it's like, 'Hey, I know it's the end and there's nothing we can do about it, so I'm here for you, come lean on me.'"

"I see a lot of girls at my shows, and a lot of them come to my meet and greets and say they're aspiring songwriters or ask advice about how I made it," Morris explained. "I'm hoping that what I'm creating is not just the music, but this projection of strength."
Morris went on to talk about how she isn't always strong, but she believes her fans realize that there is "strength in vulnerability" and that they "don't have to be ashamed of feeling sad." She also talked about how important it is for women to take control rather than just chasing guys or worry about being pretty for them.
"Those are really basic human qualities that no one in a long time has said plainly in a song in country music," Morris said. Read morehere.

The two have been spotted together by paparazzi, sparking some social media critics to raise the issue of bringing her new boyfriend around her son Sebastian. "He has three children and people are just like literally going H.A.M. for no .... reason," she started. "Mind you, of course, it's always a double standard. My ex-husband has a beautiful new girlfriend, her name is Izzy and my son is around her all the time.
"There are photographs of them together going out to museums and stuff like that, there was actually a picture on the internet where my son was sitting on her lap on a swing and they all had a family day together. I'm at the grocery store and it's just like 'you're a [expletive] how do you have another man around your child?'"
Rose chooses to introduce her son to her friends and significant others early because she feels that his approval is important. There's no point to her in wasting time on somebody who he doesn't like or who won't treat him right.
"I'd rather have Sebastian around him so he can say, mom, he's cool. If he didn't, then look bro, my son don't like you," she said. "I don't want to be with a guy for 3,6, months, 2 years and then introduce my kid and my kid's like, 'I don't like him.'" Read more and listen to the full episode of Loveline with Amber Rosehere.
