Drake, Kendrick Lamar, Childish Gambino Turned Down Grammy Performances

The Grammys are coming up in a few nights, but it's looking more and more like music's biggest night will be missing some of music's biggest night. In the recent past, the show has alienated a number of big stars, and it's failed to reward landmark works from extremely popular artists. And so now we're … More »

OMFG. Despite failing to keep his promise that 2018 will be better than 2017, it looks like our insatiable Frank Ocean thirst will be quenched big style in 2019.

And the other teasing a collaboration with SZA, Kendrick Lamar and André 3000 dropping on March 1. Frank has worked with 3 Stacks twice before, of course, on Channel Orange‘s “Pink Matter” and ...

Maroon 5 Proved They Do Not Have Moves Like Jagger At The Super Bowl Halftime Show

The Super Bowl LIII halftime show was going to be controversial no matter what happened. The gig was reportedly turned down by Rihanna (unconfirmed), Cardi B (confirmed), and Jay-Z (he wrote a song about it) in solidarity with Colin Kaepernick, whose gesture of silently kneeling during the National Anthem in support of Black Lives Matter kicked off a national conversation about social justice work and protest in the NFL and seemingly cost him his position in the league. When it was announced, m...

Kelly from its playlists and then pulled a 180 after industry figures (including, disappointingly, Kendrick Lamar) protested because they wrongly interpreted it as all-out censorship? (Why anyone would be against censoring XXX and Kellz in the first place is beyond me.) It appears they’ve found a solution that should keep everyone happy.
