Jay-Z and Kanye have dueling tours, and more news to note

  • We're not sure how we're supposed to Watch the Throne if Jay-Z and Kanye West are headed in two separate directions. Both artists announced separate tours within hours of each other today - Ye first with his "Yeezus" tour reveal, which will include Kendrick Lamar, and Jay second with his "Magna Carta Holy Grail" roll-out. We wish they would've included a note on how fans should take this - are our hip-hop parents fighting? [RS/RS]
  • Terribly sad news: Jack Osbourne and his wife Lisa have reportedly suffered a late-term miscarriage. [RaddestMom.com]
  • Someone should tell Ariana Grande that she can't actually be the '90s version of Mariah Carey, no matter how breathy her voice or cropped her top. Those of us who are old enough to remember aren't fooled. [MTV]
  • Piper Perabo has no need to be covert about her romance with director/producer Stephen Kay: The two "Covert Affairs" co-workers are now engaged. [People]
  • Of the 13 songs on Katy Perry's new album "Prism" - the cover art for which she debuted today - we'd be lying if we said we weren't most excited for "Double Rainbow." [Billboard]
  • We're curious if Coldplay actually saw "The Hunger Games" before writing a song for its sequel, "Catching Fire." This is a little low-tempo for all of the killing going on.

    That song by Coldplay sounded like a dog in heat! What did that have to do with the Hunger Games again? These performers who like to perform for these corrupt governments, do it for one reason only. Show me the money, baby. It just shows where there moral compass lies. JLo's excuse was the lamest, though. Sad really.
    Hey Triumph and MAP, and to everyone else. How are you guys today? Got any big plans for the weekend? Partial day at office on Monday, and I'm on vacation. Can't freakin wait! Have a good weekend everybody!

      Hey MAP! I was wondering why you were on here during the weekend. Sorry you have to work. That sucks! I think most of the week looks good. Tuesday is gonna be in the 90's and humid. Peace and I are doing a day trip that day. We will be by the lake shore, so it won't be as hot there. I just got to remember, no Long Island Ice Tea's for that girl. Oh, the story I could tell you. lol...

    What is with all these dictators loving US artists!? And some of them are super religious too! I just don't understand why a Muslim would want J-Lo stripping at their Bday party!

  7. Pop culture gone wrong

    Viewer, you are looking at two punk thug hoodlum characters that as mainstays of black pop culture have done more to hold back and destroy the lives of millions than any other force in modern history. That their concerts are widely attended says all you need to know about the self destructive penchant of that community.

    I like Kanye's jacket there. I wonder if his tour will go to Kazakhstan, Russia, Turkmanistan, Syria, Uganda, Rwanda, North Korea and Iran. He seems to enjoy receiving large paycheecks from currupt governments in poor countries. Way to go Kanye, you immoral loser.
