Tyga Says His Image Took A Hit While Dating Kylie Jenner
Tyga has opened up about his relationship with ex, Kylie Jenner, saying that his image took a hit during the relationship. During a recent interview, when asked if he still loves the Jenner sister, Tyga replied "That's like the honeymoon stage. You get with anybody, like, for the first year, it's magic. And after that, like, you start, like, realizing a bunch of sh*t. It's like any relationship... the main thing was just, like, it was a lot of outside influences, and like you said, she's younger than me so she's dealing with perception. I'm older."
  • He also said, "I just knew a n***a like him ain’t going to be able to handle somebody like her. He coming from a whole different world. He don’t know how she move or how she think."
  • And as far as his lawsuit against Birdman, Tyga said, "I’m in a position to where I just want Wayne to get what he’s owed. I don't want to throw nothing more on that situation.

    Ariana Grande, Ed Sheeran & Justin Bieber Among British Kids' Top 50 Heroes

    All the work Ariana Grande did to raise money for the victims of the Manchester bombing in May helped make her a hero in the eyes of British kids. The British paper The Mirror said the singer is among the top 50 modern-day children’s heroes, according to a new survey conducted by Mattel of six-to-13-year-old children in the U.K.

    The highest-ranked pop star on the list was British girl group Little Mix, who came in at No. 10, followed by Ed Sheeran at No. 11. Ariana ranked No. 14 on the list, right after Simon Cowell, but ahead of the superhero Iron Man. Justin Bieber and Harry Styles also made the list, but were ranked much further down, below the likes of The Rock, Thor, Luke Skywalker, Wonder Woman, Superman, Spider-Man, Batman, and Harry Potter.

    "Mum" topped the list, followed by "Dad" at No. 2. In addition, "My teacher," "Grandmother" and "Grandfather" were among the real-life heroes on the kids’ list.

The song was her first in four years following her very public case against Dr. Luke, her former producer who she alleges abused her over the course of several years working together.

    In the video, Kesha describes the project as "a dream come true," and gushes over working with Swedish director Jonas Akerland.

    "It’s a psychedelic trip into my mind, I’m like putting my life into metaphors. It’s very cathartic; it’s like the best therapy session, the longest therapy session ever," she says, adding that "the video is something I’m so excited for the world to see." "It’s me talking about going through hard things and coming out the other side and being ok," she says. "Hopefully it inspires other people they can get through something."

    Keyshia Cole Chimes In On R. Kelly 'Cult' Scandal

    Earlier this week, R. Kelly was accused of being a cult leader who’s brainwashed young women into sexual slavery. Now, Keyshia Cole has offered her thoughts about the controversial story.

    The singer tells Hip Hollywood, "You never know. I don’t know what’s going on, but I think we will find out more. He’s never tried anything crazy with me. But maybe he knows I’ll slap the dog a** s**t out of him."

    Keyshia and R. Kelly previously collaborated on the 2007 track, "Best Friend," featured on Kelly’s album Double Up. She also supported Kelly on his Double Up tour in 2007 and on his Love Letter tour in 2011.

    The allegations about Kelly stem from a BuzzFeed report that claims the singer, who has homes near Chicago and Atlanta, is keeping up to six women at his various properties and controlling every aspect of their everyday lives, from what they eat and wear to their sexual encounters with him. Kelly has since denied these claims, even though two former members of his entourage have confirmed details of the report. One of Kelly’s alleged captives has denied that she’s being held against her will, and has insisted that she’s fine.

    Meanwhile, a petition, launched by Care 2 on The Petition Site, has surfaced calling for Sony to drop Kelly from their label. In the document’s description, several instances of predatory behavior by Kelly throughout the years are cited. Care 2 notes that in spite of these accusations, the Kelly’s career has flourished unhindered. "R. Kelly should not profit while he continues to victimize women," the petition description reads. Care 2 was just a few hundred signatures away from reaching their goal of 19,000 at press time.

    Taylor Swift Scores Pre-Trial Victory In Dispute With Radio Host

    Taylor Swift and her legal team scored a small victory in their legal battle with David Mueller, a former Denver radio host who allegedly groped the singer during a 2013 meet-and-greet. On Wednesday, a federal judge sanctioned Mueller for destroying multiple electronic devices containing key evidence in the case. Mueller sued Swift in September 2015 claiming the pop star cost him his job after she claimed he groped her during a meet-and-greet session. In court documents, Mueller admitted Swift had been groped but blamed a "superior."

    U.S. District Judge William Martinez has allowed Swift’s attorneys to question Mueller about a two-hour audio recording he taped during an interview with his boss Robert Call, the day before he was fired. In court papers obtained by The Denver Post, Mueller admitted to destroying or losing four electronic devices, including a cellular phone, laptop, iPad and computer. Mueller gave multiple reasons behind his actions, including that he spilled coffee on his laptop’s keyboard. "It was fried," Mueller said.

    A trial date has been set for early August.
