Lil Wayne filmed the music video for a song called ‘God Bless Amerika’ in New Orleans this past weekend and in footage obtained by TMZ, the 30-year-old rapper is seen trampling the American flag. Naturally, the people of America lashed out at the rapper but he took to Facebook to explain what happened and made it very clear that it was not done on purpose.
“It was never my intention to desecrate the flag of the United States of America. I was shooting a video for a song off my album entitled ‘God Bless Amerika’. The clip that surfaced on the Internet was a camera trick clip that revealed that behind the American Flag was the Hoods of America,” he said. “In the final edit of the video you will see the flag fall to reveal what is behind it but will never see it on the ground.”
Justin Bieber is literally becoming an entire mess. The kid insists on driving his own vehicles and while there’s no problem with that, a lot of people are starting to think that he needs to go back to driving school. Literally moments ago, the singer was involved in yet another run in with the LAPD. This time, because of an alleged hit-and-run outside of a Los Angeles club.
According to TMZ, Justin was leaving the Laugh Factory in the City of Angels with Lil Twist and as he was trying to leave in his white Ferrari, it looks like he pinned one in between is car and another parked vehicle. The gossip site reports that the pap was taken to the hospital for immediate treatment.
Every artist wants to make 2013 his/her year and Drake is one of them. Just hours ago, the OVO rapper announced his 41-city ‘Would You Like A Tour?’ tour that kicks off in fall.

Here’s what Katy Perry had to say:
On ex-husband Russell Brand: “He’s a very smart man, and I was in love with him when I married him. Let’s just say I haven’t heard from him since he texted me saying he was divorcing me December 31, 2011. At first when I met him he wanted an equal, and I think a lot of times strong men do want an equal, but then they get that equal and they’re like, I can’t handle the equalness.
Drake is looking very dapper on the cover of the July 2013 issue of ‘GQ’ magazine. Released just hours after announcing his tour, the 26-year-old rapper opens up about his feud with Chris Brown, advice from the great Will Smith, his future plans, sex and more.
Here’s what Drake had to say:
On rappers hating on him: “You notice they don’t criticize the music itself, though…I’m okay with that.”
On focusing on his album instead of sex: “You know the way fighters don’t fuck before the fight? Sometimes I feel like I’m so focused on training my body and getting my mind right to create this album that sex isn’t one of my main priorities. If someone is around that I know and trust, I’m down. But I’m not going to end up with some stranger at this party.”
On Chris Brown drama: “I hear he has everything he could want now. I don’t want my name to be synonymous with that guy’s name. I really don’t. I wish we could sit down just like you and me are right now, and talk it out man-to-man. But that’s not going to happen. I’m not confrontational, but if someone challenges, I’m not going to back down. If I think about it too much, I feel it wrapping around my foot, like I get a feeling it could end really badly…Like, it gets really dark.”
As the world already knows, Kim Kardashian gave birth to a beautiful baby girl on June 15th and she recently told Ryan Seacrest that she “Can’t believe it. So crazy!”
During Seacrest’s KIIS-FM morning show today, he shared the baby mother’s first comments about the experience. “She’s very, very excited,” he said.
Elsewhere, sources confirm to E! News that it was a natural delivery and the baby weighed “just under five pounds.” “This was not planned. This came on very quickly,” says a source, noting that, “the whole family was dispersed all over the place!”
“[The baby] is healthy and Kim is doing well…There’s a great sense of relief. Everyone is very happy for her and Kim is relieved [because] this was a very stressful time.”
The Kardashian’s family friend Pippen said that Kanye West “is, like, in love with the baby,” who is “so freaking cute.”

Listen To Britney Spears’ ‘Ooh La La’ From ‘The Smurfs 2’ Soundtrack, Says Kids Are To Appear In Music Video0
Britney Spears’ tune ‘Ooh La La’ from ‘The Smurfs 2’ soundtrack was released in HQ today and we’ve been reminded just how amazing of a song it is. With an infectious pop beat boasting electro influences and an addictive auto-tuned bridge, the song remains G-rated and all around loveable.
In a chat with Ryan Seacrest, Brit said, “It’s definitely straight-up pop… it has a young feel to it. But the main reason why I did it was because [of] my boys. They’re obsessed with the Smurfs. We’ve seen ‘The Smurfs’ movie a million trillion times and they were told they could be in the video and all this cool stuff, so that’s the reason why I did it.”
She brought her kids on set of the video and they were very well behaved. “They were, like, acting, and my oldest son Preston was right on cue every time they would tell him to do something,” Spears said. “They play themselves … [but when] we did the actual shoot of the video I didn’t see [them]. I was in hair and makeup, so later on I got to see what they actually did on camera and it was adorable.”
Leonardo DiCaprio was the perfect character in ‘The Great Gatsby’ and he’s nabbed yet another interesting role in the Martin Scorcese-directed drama ‘The Wolf of Wall Street.’ The trailer was just released to the public and apart from featuring Kanye West’s ‘Black Skinhead’ from his upcoming album ‘Yeezus,’ we also see DiCaprio taking debauchery to a new level.
“My name is Jordan Belfort, the year I turned 26, I made 49 million dollars, which really pissed me off because it was three shy of a million a week,” says DiCaprio’s character in a voice-over that opens the trailer.
