According to TMZ, which posted video of the incident, Jean and two female passengers including his manager were pulled over by L.A. County Sheriff's deputies around 1:30 a.m. (PT) in West Hollywood. Their vehicle matched the description of a car used in an armed robbery in the same neighborhood.

Simon & Schuster's website describes the book as capturing "the captivating life of an artist who forged an unlikely path to stardom and personal rebirth… Every success was followed by setback. Too often, his erratic behavior threatened to end it all. Incarceration, violence, rap beefs, drug addiction. But Gucci Mane has changed, and he's decided to tell his story."
Gucci began writing the book while incarcerated last year, and the memoir follows his upbringing in Alabama to the streets of East Atlanta where he had trouble with the law as a drug dealer before he found his voice as a rapper. See Mane's tweethere.

In an interview with Radio.com, Lorde discussed some of the new music, including a song called "Liability" which she released earlier this month. ''Liability' is a funny one," Lorde tells Radio.com in an exclusive interview. 'It felt so amazing, writing it. It really felt like' it was so cathartic, like, 'This is somewhere that we haven't been.' To me, it's so quintessentially what I think of when I think of melodrama, just wallowing in this feeling. 'No one could have ever felt the way I'm feeling right now.' It's very indicative of the theme of the record. But I think everyone has those moments of feeling like, 'Have I just punished everyone around me?' or, 'Am I just a massive tax [on everyone]?" It felt nice to get it out." See her full tweetshere.
Using Instagram Live Rihanna documented the awkward experience of watching her own sex scene. "This is so weird…oh my god…I can't…" Rihanna said. Her face oscillates between pride and embarrassment.
Rihanna plays Marion Crane, who Janet Leigh played in 1960's thriller classic Psycho. In Hitchcock's film, Crame meets her gruesome end in an iconic shower scene. Bates Hotel tells the origin story of killer Norman Bates and his mother Norma--so things are probably not going to work out for Ms. Crane. Watch Rihanna's Instagram live sessionhere.
After posing for the photo, he stepped onstage and pulled out all the stops. During the show, Drizzy brought out frequent collaborators including Nicki Minaj, Trey Songz, Skepta, Giggs, Popcaan and Jorja Smith for surprise performances.

"That track is like Jurassic Park," jokes Radke. "It was years in the making. It took them a long time to produce that movie and it took me a really long time to write that song and get it right." It would ultimately take him two and a half years to get the song recorded the way he heard it in his head. Every time he recorded the song it fell short of his expectations. "I never gave up on it. Usually, people give up on songs and move on but I just couldn't move on for some reason."
"Usually the producer is the problem because they don't understand what I'm trying to do," he says. But when he worked on it with his roommate and new co-writer, Tyler Smyth of the band Dangerkids, the song came together. Smyth is a student of all types of music, including pop, which finds it's way into the core of "Coming Home."
"The song is about my daughter and [my] never being around," Radke confesses. Read more and listen to the trackhere.
The Swedish pop star's "Dancing on My Own" was featured on the show's first season and her in a post on Instagram she shared her excitement about being involved in the final season of the show.

Being shirtless allowed the singer to show off two new tats he had done recently, including a growling bear over his heart and an eagle over his stomach. Considering he already has over 50 tattoos, he's giving buddy Ed Sheeran a run for his money in that department. See his posthere.
After a short break during which Hillary Scott and Charles Kelley both released solo albums (Scott's won two Grammys), Lady Antebellum recently returned with a horn-driven new song, "You Look Good."
Lady Antebellum's Dave Heywood says that the band enjoyed reconnecting for their next album. "We lived in houses together to write and create this record. We found this song, actually, busbee [aka Michael Busbee], our producer, is a writer on it with Ryan Hurd and Hillary Lindsey. And we don't cut many outside songs, we're really picky about outside songs, but this one had just a funky feel to it. It was cool but didn't try too hard, which is really hard to do. It just summed up the way we've been feeling as a band, our excitement, getting back to the innocence of the way we've worked together as a trio, and writing together and traveling together. The horns have a great feeling of energy." Read morehere.
"Conceived of Children Who Lie" is an emotional song driven by angst and our bleak outlook on existence. Though the song has gone through many changes, the mood has never changed.
At its inception the chorus was only one line "It's unbelievable." Those words were a reflection of my mental state and the horror at consistently hearing reports on police brutality. I know it's nothing new but the high numbers of deaths were hard to shrug off and to be frank, sickening. Now I realize the first lines "I open my eyes, can't believe I live in present times" set the lyrical mood.
I sent the demo to Pete, and he responded with his most personal verse to date; the inner conflict resulting from his parents divorce, and before then we had never talked about it. It is beautiful to get to know someone through their artistic expression. He eventually rewrote and sung the chorus. Now, the chorus is a better bridge between our verses. It also feels more contemplative whereas the original expressed hopelessness. Our inspiration and subject matter were very different but the angst of which it is rooted in is one and the same. That's why the song feels so powerful to me, it's as though Pete and I are having a conversation and through that conversation we are consoling each other's pessimistic view on existence.We had our verses memorized for a long time, sometimes performing them at shows, which gave us the ability to concentrate on the emotional delivery. Considering the length of these verses, getting the emotion right during tracking was important.
What took the most time to develop were the instrumentals. Through the two years we had this song, I continued to work on other instrumentals and on my production. Finally I grew confident enough in my skills to tackle this song that meant so much to us. I'm glad it took a while to finish, otherwise the song would have stayed heavy with distorted guitars and drumlines taking impact away from the words. Now the instrumental is less abrasive with synths being the driving force, allowing our words to breathe. The mixing, too would have been different. I happened to watch the Netflix show "Stranger things" just before mixing and the soundtrack, which was incredible, and definitely influenced my sonic preference. The ominous, and dark synths throughout the show are still guiding me.
I can go on to list more intricate details on how time allowed "Conceived of Children Who Lie" to become the song it was meant to be, but what it comes down to is that this song reinforced my belief that our songs get finished when they are meant too. I used to get anxious about having unfinished songs sitting in my hard drive, but now I see them as digital seeds that will germinate when the season is right. My one disappointment with this song is that the social issues we wrote about years ago are still prevalent.
Hearing is believing. Ndow that you know the story behind the song, listen for yourself here and learn more about the EPright here!
