Taylor Swift Calls Kanye West “Two-Faced” Over Infamous “Famous” Phone Call

Nashville, TN – Two summers ago, Kim Kardashian took to Snapchat to expose a conversation between Taylor Swift and her husband Kanye West about The Life of Pablo track “Famous,” in which the 42-year-old Grammy Award-winning artist proclaims he “made that bitch famous.”

Kim originally revealed the conversation to prove Ye actually got Taylor’s permission to use her name in the song after she claims that she was unaware he’d be using her name in the song.

Now, in an interview with Rolling Stone published on Wednesday (September 18), the 29-year-old pop star is clearing the air about the events leading up to their fall out.

“Basically, I got really sick of the dynamic between he and I,” she reveals. “And that wasn’t just based on what happened on that phone call and with that song — it was kind of a chain reaction of things.”

Taylor says all she wanted was for Kanye’s approval following the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards debacle when West interrupted her Best Female Video acceptance speech because he felt Beyoncé’s “Single Ladies (Put A Ring On It)” should have taken home the award instead.

So when West reached out to her a few weeks beforehand to see if she would like to present the Vanguard Award to him at the 2015 VMAs, she was honored.

“And so I wrote this speech up, and then we get to the VMAs and I make this speech and he screams, ‘MTV got Taylor Swift up here to present me this award for ratings!‘ she recalls. “And I’m standing in the audience with my arm around his wife, and this chill ran through my body. I realized he is so two-faced. That he wants to be nice to me behind the scenes, but then he wants to look cool, get up in front of everyone and talk shit.”

She claims Kanye sent her a big bouquet of flowers to apologize the next day and was touched when he originally called her about “Famous.” However, when she finally heard the song, she was done with their friendship.

“And then he literally did the same thing to Drake,” she points out referring to Kanye giving Pusha T fuel for his “Story of Adidion” Drake diss record. “He gravely affected the trajectory of Drake’s family and their lives. It’s the same thing. Getting close to you, earning your trust, detonating you. I really don’t want to talk about it anymore because I get worked up, and I don’t want to just talk about negative shit all day, but it’s the same thing.”

At this point, it appears Taylor is over reconciling any kind of relationship with Yeezy and is currently relishing in her No. 1 album Lover.

Meanwhile, Kanye has reportedly become a born-again Christian according to Nicki Minaj and has taken his Sunday Service series across the country. He’s currently gearing up for the September 27 release of his next album Jesus Is King.

Joe Budden Mocks Tekashi 6ix9ine For Ratting Out Trippie Redd

Joe Budden is one the most relevant hip-hop commentators in the world, always voicing his opinion on the most controversial topics pertaining to the culture. He’s known to have a pretty divisive take on things, which is likely the reason why his podcast with Rory and Mal is so successful. You just knew he would have something to say about the Tekashi 6ix9ine trial that began this week and, in a special 3-and-a-half hour episode their show, the crew discussed exactly what went down yesterday in court.

The Love & Hip Hop star and iconic rapper noted that he believes that in certain aspects, Tekashi 6ix9ine and his former manager Kifano “Shotti” Jordan are intelligent men. However, he still clowned the man for what he had to say on the stand.

When the trio were recounting everything that 6ix9ine said while he was testifying, Budden mimicked how he thinks the rainbow-haired star sounded in court. Mocking his answer about Trippie Redd also being a gang-member, Budden critiqued him for even bringing something like that up. “Trippie Redd was part it… like come on man. You just in there… Trippie Redd home,” he said, believing that it was wildly unnecessary to provide that information.

Yesterday’s session was cut f early at 4 PM EST but Budden, Rory and Mal expect there to be a lot more information coming out today. Listen to their thoughts on the situation just before the 35-minute mark.

Ex-WWE Star Big Cass Issues Statement On Chaotic Backstage Incident

Former WWE star Big Cass reportedly had a meltdown at a WrestlePro event in Rahway, New Jersey this past weekend, which led to cops being called and the 7-footer being taken away in an ambulance.

Cass’ backstage behavior was described as “aggressive and erratic” as he reportedly tried to attack fellow wrestler Joey Janela and allegedly spit in the face  WrestlePro owner, Pat Buck. According to Wrestling Inc, Buck punched Cass during the altercation, knocking the big man to the ground.

Per Wrestling Inc:

“Due to the event going on, plenty police were nearby with the police station right next to the venue. Cass was taken out the building, police reportedly searched his car, and at that time Cass began yelling things that caused concern enough to get an ambulance to transport him to a hospital.”

On Tuesday, Cass issued a statement and an apology, in which he mentioned his ongoing battle with depression.

That statement, posted on the IG account his former tag team partner Enzo Amore, reads:

“I have been very honest with my past struggles, and it has been an ongoing battle,” he wrote. “On Saturday night, I obviously let my demons get the better me and I ruined an important night for a really great guy in an unfortunate series events. I have worked incredibly hard to get where I am, and even harder to overcome my ongoing battle with depression. But I will work my absolute hardest to right the wrongs Saturday night and apologize to Kevin Mathews, Pat Buck, Joey Janela, the entire WrestlePro locker room and all parties involved from the bottom my heart.

“I’m getting help from family and friends as we speak and will be getting pressional help in the near future and ask all to please respect my privacy in the meantime. When & if I reemerge as a public figure it will be in good faith and I hope to inspire those who struggle with the same mental health issues I do to seek the help they need. If Tyson Fury can do it….so can I.

“Remember…I ain’t dead yet. And neither are you.

“Peace and love, William Patrick Morrissey III”

The incident comes just weeks after a report suggested WWE was interested in bringing back the Big Cass & Enzo Amore tag team as NXT makes it’s debut on the USA Network.

50 Cent Reveals Eminem Turned Down Joint Dr. Dre & Snoop Dogg Tour

50 Cent recently stopped by Big Boy’s Neighborhood as part of his press run. During the conversation, he revealed Eminem once passed on a massive tour featuring Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg.

When Fiddy was asked about his relationship with Eminem — who integral in 50’s rise to notoriety — he recalled the missed opportunity. He explained Em was concerned about missing out on his daughter Hailie’s life.

“You do not believe how much money we would’ve made,” he said around the 30:00-minute mark . “And Em was like — there was so many dates at the time the way they laid it out — that he was like, ‘I just don’t want to go on tour and come back and Hailie’s grown.’”

50 added the initial plan included a “ridiculous amount of dates.” In fact, he said the run would have grossed so much money that “when you come back, everyone has the money that no one has to answer the phone.”

Big Boy pressed him for the amount and he finally admitted the tour was worth “collectively, over $100 million.”

Elsewhere in the nearly 60-minute interview, the Power mogul talks about the “Big Rich Town” backlash, his social media antics and, of course, Rick Ross.

50 Cent Shares Audio Recording Of Randall Emmett & Lala Kent’s Contract Terms

If you haven’t noticed by now, 50 Cent has been tormenting Vanderpump Rules star Lala Kent pretty hard over the past few days ever since she went on Bravo’s Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen last week and told the host that she had “receipts” from the G-Unit rapper about getting under his skin in their previous feud. 

Of course, Fif wasn’t going to let her get away with this slander, and has been going at Lala on IG ever since, calling her out for her cocaine use & drinking problem. Continuing on Tuesday, Fif took things a step further today and actually decided to share the audio recording revealing the terms between his and Randell & Lala’s contract, which stemmed from the initial $1 million Randall owed 50 Cent earlier this year. And according to the contract, which Lala has since breached, 50 now has every right to go at the reality couple.

He captioned the post, “Here’s the terms I agreed to when Randell gave me my money. I didn’t say anything about him till his little drunk ass girl friend went running her mouth.”

Per the deal, 50’s lawyer says there was a provision added to the repayment contract. The deal said if Emmett or Kent made public statements about 50 Cent, following the deal being executed, then the rapper was permitted to respond publicly, “in any manner and without restrictions,” which he has done.

His lawyer tells him the verbiage read, “in the event that either Emmett or Kent make any public statement whether on social media or otherwise … Jackson may be permitted to respond publicly in any manner and without any restrictions.” 50 then responds to his lawyer, “so if they decided to sue me for defamation … I don’t give a f—k if they sue me, I got all day for this sh-t.” His lawyer then reminds him the comments he has made were his opinion and legally fine.

50 has since deleted the post on IG, but not before the internet got their hands on it and posted it to Youtube first. Check it out (below).

Dennis Graham Gets His Bars Up In "That On That" Video

Los Angeles, CA – Drake’s musicly inclined father Dennis Graham is always in the studio recording.

Believe it or not, he actually loses track of the contents within his record stash. Such was the case for his newest single, “That On That,” which has been unearthed after a cool decade.

“I wrote this record about 10 years ago and was in the studio one day listening to some of my old records and came across, ‘That on That,’ Mr. Graham tells HipHopDX. “I couldn’t believe I wrote this so long ago and the sound was so current.”

When your son is one of the biggest stars on the planet, it’s beneficial to have him preview the records. As of result, “That On That” was blessed with the ultimate Drizzy co-sign.

“I sent it to Drake and he loved it and told me that I needed to release it immediately. So here we are with ‘That On That,’” he continued.

The Nikeisha Andersson & Henry Lipatov-directed clip finds Mr. Graham frankly spitting cocksure bars while unsurprisingly rocking a golden OVO chain.

Watch it above.

Nicki Minaj & Drake’s Alleged Beef Explained By DJ Akademiks

Oh boy… For the last few weeks, DJ Akademiks has been going f on Nicki Minaj for her alleged “clown” behavior. He was back at it during a recent live-stream when he brought up his issues with the Queen once more, bringing 6ix9ine, Meek Mill and Drake into the mess as well.

If you’re not up on game, here’s the rundown. Last week, Ak started claiming that Nicki Minaj was sending him threatening messages in his inbox, asking where he was at and claiming that she had sent him death threats. In this latest update, Akademiks can be seen and heard discussing the situation at length in vlog-style, claiming that she begged 6ix9ine to get a feature spot on “FEFE” and, more interestingly, pointing out the origins her alleged beef with Drake.

Nicki Minaj & Drake's Alleged Beef Explained By DJ Akademiks

As you surely know, both Minaj and Drizzy were part Young Money Entertainment, blowing up as Lil Wayne‘s mentees. During the time Nicki was romantically involved with Meek Mill, Ak recalls a time where the two allegedly went shopping at a high-end clothing store and when Meek attempted to pay for their order in cash, he realized he didn’t have enough on him and asked Minaj to pay with her card. According to Ak, Nicki then separated their items and only paid for her stuff, leaving Meek to handle the rest. Before walking out the store, she allegedly told Meek that “Drake wouldn’t do that shit.” All this information apparently comes from a very trusted inside source that Akademiks knows. 

As Meek Mill was leaving the shop, he reportedly tweeted out a message asking nobody to ever compare him to Drake again, which kicked f their “Twitter fingers” beef. 

According to the internet personality, he wishes Minaj would challenge him on that fact because plenty other popular figures have heard the same story. Because this, Minaj and Drake have noticeably distanced themselves in recent years, collaborating much less and rarely making mention about one another.

Do you believe Ak’s story or do you think he’s capping? Watch below at the 35:50 mark.

Trevor Siemian’s Gruesome Ankle Injury Had NFL Fans Queasy

Trevor Siemian was thrust into the starting quarterback role for the New York Jets this past week after it was revealed that Sam Darnold was suffering from a bad case Mono. Siemian doesn’t have very much starting experience under his belt so it wasn’t a surprise when he had an abysmal start to the game. Things went from bad to worse for Siemian when he was tackled by Myles Garrett in the second quarter. As you can see from the gruesome video below, Siemian’s ankle collapses from underneath him and it looks as though it’s broken. Shockingly, Siemian was able to get up under his own power and walk it f.

Siemian didn’t come back to the game and was replaced by Luke Falk who did a decent job for the Jets, although he struggled to get points on the board. Siemian is set to receive an MRI on his ankle and as right now, Falk is the number one quarterback for a Jets team who are now 0-2 on the season.

Fans witnessed the injury live and were pretty taken aback by what they saw, rushing to Twitter to proclaim their disgust. The injury definitely wasn’t for the faint heart.

Keke Palmer’s Reaction To Dick Cheney Has Turned Into A Hilarious Meme

When Keke was shown a picture Cheney, her response became gold for the internet.

“I hate to say it and I hope I don’t sound ridiculous, but I don’t know who this man is,” Keke replied, admitting that she had no idea who America’s former V.P. was. “I mean, he could be walking down the street, I wouldn’t know a thing. Sorry to this man.” Before you knew it, this clip went down in meme history and has been used to create some funny reactions.

Drake Rumored To Be A Producer On 50 Cent’s "Black Mafia Family" Series

He got the go-ahead in a handwritten letter from Big Meech, one the former ringleaders BMF, a drug trafficking organization that formed in the early 80’s and became affiliated with the hip hop industry when it peaked in the 2000’s. B.M.F. would be part his multi-show deal with the Starz Network, alongside his popular series, Power.
