Halsey Opens Up About Being Bipolar & Why She Won’t Discuss Boyfriend Evan Peters

Halsey dropped f her latest album Manic just a few days ago and the 16-song fering is an honest expression a 25-year-old who’s made it out alive despite many trials and tribulations along the way. In light the expressive project, the singer chatted with The Sun on a number topics that surround her life as late – one being her bipolar disorder. “I achieved a lot my dreams at 19 years old. I’ve had a pretty invincible couple years. So when I can’t do a simple f***ing task and I am so frustrated with myself because I feel so incapable, I get mad at myself and say, ‘F*** you’. That’s having bipolar,” she said. 

On the topic her boyfriend Evan Peters, who she recently moved in with, Halsey expressed her plans to keep this relationship more private. 

“A friend mine – another female artist who has been criticised for dating a lot people – said, ‘Ashley, you need to live your fucking life and ignore what people say about you.’ And so now I keep everything to myself in terms my romantic relationships,” she said. “I will say that it’s good to not date another musician as then your work follows you everywhere. Now it’s my personal life so I get to go home to somebody that I love and spend time with them, and it not be about work.”

Meek Mill Is A Clean-Cut Young OG In Grade School Throwback Pic

We’re sure no rapper in the game would want to be described as “adorable,” “innocent” or, worst them all, “cute,” but we’re not sure there’s a better way to describe the latest photo that Meek Mill decided to share to his over 18 million Instagram followers.

Meek was born on May 6, 1987, which means the photo seen above dates him roughly between the ages four and six, especially with the classic school photo background that looks like either pre-K or Kindergarten. Either way, the GRAMMY-nominated emcee is the image child-like perfection in this picture which also reveals an interesting fact: Meek’s face hasn’t changed one bit since he was a toddler! Save for the #BeardGang vibes that he’s currently rocking at the moment, Meek literally has the same eyes, nose and, quite frankly, the same forehead that he did back when he was running around the playground with a clean cut Caesar fade. In short, our Philly-bred boy has never switched up and we definitely love to see it.

After you finish squealing and saying “aww” at Meek Mill’s “young OG” photo, take a look at another #TBT he posted that shows a slightly older young Meek doing what he did best before the fame:

SZA & Justin Timberlake’s Instagram Banter Allude To New Music Coming Soon

We’ve known for some time now that SZA and Justin Timberlake have been up to something when it comes to new music. “Before I was like, ‘What the f-ck am I doing in the studio with Justin Timberlake right now? This is crazy,'” she said. “But when I heard his music and we started singing together… It’s like, ‘Oh, we speak the same language. The same frequency.’ I understood where he was going before he could finish a run.”

After confirming that new tunes will be dropping this year, it’s clear that if anyone is more excited than SZA’s many fans it would be Justin himself. The “Love Galore” singer uploaded a gallery images to her Instagram feed that showcase some never before seen moments in the studio and on some music video sets. Justin excitedly commented: “Sis!!!!! Let’s gooooooo!!” sparking SZA to respond, “OKAAAYYYUUUU😩😩😩 I’m ready.”

SZA previously spoke her past releases and described such collaborations with Cardi B, Maroon 5 and DJ Khaled as “not me.”

“It’s not to say they’re bad songs but my body doesn’t recognize it. That version myself on that song is unfamiliar to my spirit,” she said. We can only hope her new releases embody her vibe more than ever before.

Kobe Bryant Remembers Michael Jordan’s Text When He Passed Him In Scoring

Kobe Bryant and Michael Jordan are two the top five players to ever play basketball. Jordan is the undisputed best player ever while Bryant is maybe just a couple players behind. Since Jordan didn’t play as many seasons as some the other legends the game, his scoring stats weren’t as high as some people would be led to believe. In the last few years, both LeBron James and Kobe Bryant have surpassed Michael Jordan on the all-time scoring list. 

LeBron is just a few points away from passing Kobe and fans are excited to see LeBron continue his ascent to first all-time. Kobe recently stated that he fully supports LeBron’s efforts and even recalled a story from when he surpassed Jordan. As Kobe explains, Jordan sent him a text the night he passed him in points and to this day, Bryant still thinks about it with glee.

“That was the most important thing,” Bryant said per Bill Oram The Athletic. “That was cool. Because it’s such a brotherhood, such an amount respect between us as players, and you know the amount work and consistency you have to put in over time so it’s nothing but love and respect.”

Needless to say, it’s always nice to feel respected by those you’ve always looked up to.

After tensions between the two began to publicly surface in recent weeks, Casanova revealed he’s on good terms with Pop on Sunday (January 19). The Roc Nation artist posted a photo of his friendly interaction with his short-lived rival on Instagram.

“BEFORE WE ATE WE GOT SOMETHING OFF OUR CHEST… WHO YALL THINK WON?” he wrote in the caption.

Issues between Casanova and Pop emerged earlier this month when the latter previewed a new song on Instagram. In the post, Pop labeled his fellow Brooklyn native “Trashanova.”

“YALL OLD NIGGAS BETTER PACK IT UP,” he wrote. “THIS AINT NO TRASHANOVA SHIT NO SCARY L SHIT YALL KNOW THE WOOS RUN THE CITY YALL NIGGAS COULD NEVER BE ME #straightshit #Wooshit #doublegshit #Ripclovergz #ripshyste #ripyola #riprohan #ripdonald.”

Drake Shows Love To "Some Of The Greatest Ever": MF Doom, Phonte & More

Drake might be the biggest pop star on earth right now but he’s ultimately a student hip-hop. Acts like Kanye West, Cam’ron, Jay-Z, and Lil Wayne have clearly been influential in his sounds, as he’s admitted in the past, as well as R&B artists like Aaliyah, Sade, and Usher. However, he’s a student the rap game, first and foremost, and last night, he hit the ‘Gram to pay homage to a few artists that he might not credit as ten as he should for influencing him.

“Spent my night listening to some the greatest ever,” he wrote in the first eight Instagram Story posts where he showed love to a few artists he’s worked with in the past and some that are on his bucket list collaborators, apparently. Among them are Elzhi, Phonte, Dwele, Slum Village, MF Doom, The Roots, and Cody Chesnutt.

For those familiar with Drake’s ATF/October’s Very Own Blogspot days, the rapper has collaborated with several these artists in his early career. Not only has Drake called Phonte one his biggest influences but they also worked together on “Think Good Thoughts” alongside Elzhi. Dwele and Little Brothe also linked up with Drake on “Don’t You Have A Man.” He’s also sampled The Roots and Slum Village in some his recent work as well. 

As for MF Doom, the rapper has previously paid homage to the masked MC in the past while sparking speculation a collab in the works. Although that’s never been confirmed, Drake did rap over “Accordion” with Nickelus F back in the day.

UFC’s Dana White Reveals Plans For Conor McGregor’s Next Opponent

UFC’s cash cow Conor McGregor is back in the mix following his impressive return to the octagon at UFC 246 this past weekend, where he defeated Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone in under a minute. Even before McGregor’s TKO victory fight fans were giddy with excitement over who his next opponent could be, and the speculation has ramped up even more following the dominant performance. 

However, according to UFC President Dana White, there is only one option: Khabib Nurmagomedov. 

UFC's Dana White Reveals Plans For Conor McGregor's Next Opponent

Although fans would love a Conor McGregor vs Jorge Masvidal ‘BMF’ title fight or the trilogy with Nate Diaz, White says the Khabib rematch is the right fight to make. As we know, their first clash at UFC 229 in October 2018 ended with a massive melee and some lengthy suspensions after Khabib submitted the Irish superstar.

Their feud has died down considerably since then, but there’s no doubt that both sides would pick up right where they left f.

“We’re looking at Hagler-Hearns,” White said, per ESPN. “We’re looking at like Ali-Foreman, Ali-Frazier. This is a massive fight with global appeal. It’s the fight you make, it’s the fight that makes sense. It’s for the 155-pound title.

“If Conor and Masvidal fight, neither one them even has a title. Although Conor does want his BMF title. He doesn’t have a world championship. So Khabib is the fight to make. It’s huge for Khabib’s legacy, too. If he beat Conor McGregor, then he beats Tony Ferguson, then he beats Conor McGregor again, I mean this is how this kid, when he retires, he’s 30-something-and-oh and he’s beaten all the best.”

Of course, this is assuming the undefeated Lightweight champion retains his title against Tony Ferguson at UFC 249 on April 18. Should that be the case, White believes the McGregor-Khabib rematch could set a UFC record for most pay-per-view buys, and even rival the McGregor-Mayweather boxing match in terms prit.
