Demi Lovato’s Eating Disorder Relapse Led To Overdose

Demi Lovato has gained some perspective on how all her demons coincide, as she explained on Ashley Graham’s podcast, “Pretty Big Deal,” that eventually, relapsing from her eating disorder by over-exercising and heavily dieting would come to play a part in her near-fatal overdose in 2018. Demi has been very open about her struggles with alcohol, cocaine, and Oxycontin addiction as well as bulimia, and she firther addressed all these issues on Graham’s podcast on Tuesday.

“I’m tired running myself into the ground with workouts and extreme dieting,” Demi expressed. “I thought the past few years was recovery from an eating disorder, when it actually was just completely falling into it. And I just realized that, like, maybe my symptoms weren’t as obvious as before, but it was definitely an eating issue.” Demi further explained how elements like her disordered eating habits as well as her toxic environment led to her overdose a year-and-a-half-ago, which nearly killed her.

“I think when you have certain people around you that are telling you certain things, that you should look a certain way, it makes it harder. I was in that situation, and I was just running myself into the ground. And I honestly think that’s kind what led to everything happening over the past year. It] was just me thinking I found recovery when I didn’t, and then living this kind lie and trying to tell the world I was happy with myself when I really wasn’t.”

Demi spent two weeks in the hospital after nearly losing her life, before entering a long-term treatment centre. The singer made her comeback at the Grammys last month, where she performed her new song, “Anyone,” that she wrote just a few days before she overdosed. “‘Anyone’] represented that period in my life when everything hit the fan,” she told Andy Cohen on his radio show following her incredible Grammys performance. “I thought if I ever come back from this—I was in the hospital, I didn’t know—if I ever come back from this, if I end up going back to music and I’m onstage and I get a first performance, I want it to be at the Grammys and I want it to be this song.” Following her powerful Grammys moment, Demi had the honour  singing the National Anthem at the Super Bowl.

Kehlani Angry With Joe Budden After He Critiques Her YG Breakup Song

Kehlani and Joe Budden traded contentious tweets following Budden’s comments about her latest single, “Valentine’s Day (Shameful), which appeared to suggest a nasty breakup with her ex-boyfriend YG.

Budden and his co-hosts discussed the song on Wednesday’s episode (February 19) of The Joe Budden Podcast with Rory & Mal and questioned the validity of her claims, considering the song arrived only days after her reunion collaboration track with YG, “Konclusions.”

“I feel like I’ve been hoodwinked, ‘cause it was just last week we came on this podcast, Rory made me listen to a YG [and] Kehlani song [‘Konclusions’],” Budden began. “I hated it on the first listen and then by the second listen, I loved it. I was in [with] this new image of YG being in love and making songs while he’s in love.”

The former Slaughterhouse MC continued, “But this record right here — I have never heard Kehlani enunciate words this way, drag out words this way,” Budden said of “Valentine’s Day (Shameful).” “She really wants us to know how much of a piece of shit YG is, but she’s hiding behind the thin veil of, ‘I’m not telling you guys who I’m talking about.’”

“Somebody explain the woman’s brain to me … you was immature three days ago?” he joked, referring to the song’s lyrics.

However, after combing through Kehlani’s bars, the podcast trio did deem the track to be “fire.”

“I love you Kehlani,” Budden concluded between laughs. “If she doing this on there — lying on dudes — I’m buying [her next album]. That’s my bag — music that’s lying about somebody.” 

Soon after the episode aired, Kehlani responded to the commentary with a series of since-deleted tweets.

“Joe budden is a joke,” she wrote in one tweet, followed by, “the amount of misinformation and lies and lameness in this episode about me and you used my face is … lol gotta love it.”

Retweeting a fan who shared her sentiment, the Oakland-bred crooner also called Budden’s comments “disgusting.”

Budden then attempted to diffuse the situation with his own tweet.

“We love you, it’s jokes … feel better,” he responded to Kehlani.

However, the cease-fire only lasted 15 minutes.

“I’m bout sick of you artists … never a peep through years of praise but wanna jump outta windows when you hear something you don’t like,” Budden tweeted. “Newsflash, i am not friends with you niggas.”

According to KG, during his rookie season with the Minnesota Timberwolves his teammate Isaiah Rider was having a solid game against Jordan’s Bulls, and Garnett started running his mouth. Rider tried to prevent the inevitable by telling His Airness that Garnett was just a rookie who didn’t know any better, but the damage had already been done – and Jordan made Minnesota pay dearly for KG’s shit talking.

“I can’t even really describe the next six to seven minutes play,” Garnett explained. “In the next six to seven minutes play, y’all, we get two 10-second violation] calls. We down 25 now, it was just at two. Mike had 18, he had 40 now. J.R., myself, we ain’t scored in ’bout four minutes. It got bad quick, yo.”

It details how it all started with Tadoe getting ticked f about a flirtatious video his then-girlfriend, Cuban Doll, and the rainbow-haired menace. Things then escalated when Tekashi retaliated to the Chicago rappers’ threats by flying out one Chief Keef’s baby mamas to NYC for a shopping spree. The fact that the woman exposed Keef on IG for not adequately supporting his kids and was getting pampered courtesy Nine Trey made Tekashi’s chess move a doozy. As Martinez said, “this is what makes Tekashi 6ix9ine stand out as a troll. He isn’t just calling Chief Keef and Tadoe out on songs, hes orchestrating an entire drama.”

Durant explains:

“I just think it should be taken f the banned substance list. It shouldn’t even be a discussion nowadays. It’s just like, marijuana is marijuana. It’s not harmful to anybody. It can only help and enhance and do good things, you know. I feel like it shouldn’t even be a huge topic around it anymore.”

The two-time NBA Finals MVP noted how players around the league will routinely drink cfee, or wind down with a glass wine or a drink, and thinks marijuana should be viewed in that same light. He adds with a smile, “It’s a plant that’s put here for a reason and it’s to all bring us together, man. Hopefully it happens, especially in the NBA.”

Eric Holder To Share His Story About Nipsey Hussle Death After Trial: Report

As we approach the anniversary date Nipsey Hussle‘s murder, his alleged killer’s trial is also gearing up to begin. It was March 31, 2019, when Eric Holder allegedly shot and killed Nipsey as he stood in front his Marathon Clothing store in Los Angeles. Holder was taken into custody within days and prosecutors have been building a case against one the most hated men in hip hop.

According to The Real Whirl Podcast, they recently spoke to Holder and recorded the conversation. During the brief chat between Terrell Foster and Holder, the podcast host recognized that Holder couldn’t say much because the case is active. “I’m on the case right now so I can’t really speak,” Holder said. “Imma keep your number. Imma call you after this go to trial. After trial when I find out everything Imma hit you up and holla at you for sure, bro.” Foster then told Holder that he’d make sure to keep money on that phone line so they could stay in contact.

The host also told Holder that throughout this last year, people haven’t been concerned with hearing his side the story, so he wanted to make sure that Holder had a place to speak freely. “He reached out to me and Eric Holder called me,” the host told his viewers. “He said he wants to talk to me and he wanna tell his side the truth. He wanna tell you exactly what happened the day with Mr. Nipsey Hussle. R.I.P. to Nipsey Hussle. God rest Nipsey Hussle’s soul. I never did a video related to Nipsey Hussle. I’m not gonna lie. A lot YouTubers ate it up. They took it and ran with it. People didn’t even know who the hell Nipsey Hussle was until after he got killed.”

“Nipsey Hussle was a damn good artist. I hate that he didn’t get a chance to enjoy his accolades while he was here,” the host added. Unsurprisingly, the exchange was met with backlash, so Foster returned to his YouTube page to set the record straight for his critics. 

Back in May 2019, Holder entered a not guilty plea on charges  murder, 2 counts attempted murder (for the other victims injured in the shooting), possession a firearm by a felon, and two counts assault with a firearm. He was being represented by Christopher Darden, one the prosecutors from the infamous O.J. Simpson murder trial. Darden later stepped down from representing Holder, sharing that his family was receiving threatening messages.

“It’s 1995 all over again, except this time, some folks are upset that I should represent a probable mentally ill African American man charged with murder,” Darden said at the time. “I received threats. My family…my children have been harassed and threatened. It’s really outrageous. I’m really kind sick it. I don’t know when people are gonna realize I’m already battle-tested.”

It’s believed that Holder’s attorneys will use his mental instability or illness as the crux their defense. Undoubtedly, the world will be watching. In the meantime, listen to Eric Holder’s brief jailhouse phone call with The Real Whirl Podcast below.

But if you have a solid constitution with values and principles you can get over those challenges.”

“In a relationship, I think it’s the same thing,” Boris continued. “When you are willing to give the other person the space to have fun, to mess up ’cause we all human… You have to be willing to give your partner a chance to f*ck up royally and not run for the hills, but to stick it out, grow through the process, with your partner as well as individually and then you come out the other end a better human.

T.I. joked that Tiny got to be “such a good human” because he messes up so much.

Kevin Garnett Recalls Tim Duncan’s Hilarious Trash Talk

Future NBA Hall Famer Kevin Garnett was one the most talkative players his era, constantly chirping at opponents and talking trash whether he was on the court or catching a breather on the bench. As such, Garnett is more than qualified to shed some light on the trash-talking ways the NBA, including which players did it best, such as Tim Duncan. Yes, Tim Duncan.

According to KG, Duncan’s trash talk was the most infuriating because the subtle manner in which he would verbally abuse his opponents while methodically burying them with fundamental moves. During a recent episode the “All The Smoke” podcast with Matt Barnes and Stephen Jackson, Garnett recalled some the hilariously polite phrases that Timmy used to throw around while embarrassing his counterparts.

Says KG, “People would not see him verbally saying stuff because he wouldn’t talk in sentences. Timmy would hit you in phrases – ‘got you,’ ‘Oooh,’ ‘almost.’ This the worst right here, ‘nice try.’ Like subtle shit. No gangsta shit, no real hardcore shit.” Garnett also explained that it was extremely frustrating for him to talk shit to Duncan because The Big Fundamental simply didn’t give f that same energy.

In addition to his thoughts about TD’s trash talk, Garnett also recalled some stories about known trash talkers like Gary Payton and Charles Barkley. See what KG had to say about Timmy and GP in the videos embedded below.

Big Sean Finally Opens Up About Alleged Kendrick Lamar Beef

New York, NY – Big Sean sat down with Joe Budden for a recent episode of Pull Up. During the conversation, the rapper-turned-podcast host mentioned he was disappointed Sean and Kendrick Lamar decided to be “mature” and not take their alleged beef online for the public to see.

Sean was fast to deny there was ever a real issue.

“It was something I wish I would’ve spoke up about,” Sean said around the 90-minute mark. “There was nothing and when I say ‘nothing,’ I’m not even bullshitting you. You were one of the main people pushing the narrative. I can’t even fault you for that because … I was mad because at first I was like, ‘This was some bullshit.’

“Look, I don’t remember how it started. Some people said it started in a freestyle where I said something about somethin’, right? So I did ‘No More Interviews’ and I went crazy. Then I remember going online and seeing like, ‘Oh, is he talking about Kendrick’ because I was talking about people who rap fast.”

Sean continued by explaining he was addressing an entire group of rappers — not just one specific person.

“I wasn’t beefing with nobody,” he insisted. “I was literally addressing a whole fuckin’ — I’m just rapping. It wasn’t about a specific person or I would’ve said his name, right? If they don’t say a name, they specifically align it with the person.”

Although Budden disagreed, Sean added, “I’m a spiritual person. I believe what you give your energy to, you attract and it grows. I see that and think that’s some bullshit, so I don’t even give no energy to it. Time goes on and then Kendrick, the same year, he drops a freestyle. I don’t know what he said that made people say, ‘Oh, it’s about Sean,’ right? So, I remember hearing it. I hear the shit and I’m like, ‘OK, what part they talking about?’ They like, ‘Oh, this part.’ So I immediately hit up Top [Dawg.]”

Sean then revealed Anthony “Top Dawg” Tiffith said the line had nothing to do with Sean, however the rumors of a beef kept going.

As they continued talking, Sean called out Budden for egging it on and admitted he was “irritated” with Budden who did apologize for his part in it. Sean said that’s when he realized, “The internet was one of the biggest things in the world.”

Even though there was some weird tension between Sean and K. Dot for awhile, they ultimately both forgot about it until TDE’s Punch brought it up again. At the suggestion of Punch, Sean got in touch with Kendrick and they worked it all out. The rest is history.

Spotify Remains M.I.A. In South Korea — But That Could Change In 2020

According to a Seoul-based news outlet, Spotify is set to further its global presence by entering the South Korean market.

Though more than 275 million people actively use Spotify (including 124 million premium subscribers and 153 million free-version users), the streaming service hasn’t been made available to residents of South Korea. Last March, an attempted rollout was halted by royalty disagreements with South Korean performance rights organizations (PROs).

At the time of writing, the Stockholm-headquartered company’s South Korean launch date had not been disclosed. However, the debut is expected to commence later this year, after a new office is opened in Gangnam, a particularly upscale section of Seoul.

South Korea is home to nearly 52 million people and a thriving music market. BTS, the seven-piece boy band, has  domestically and internationally. The globally adored act attracts a substantial number of tourists — and a substantial amount of revenue — to South Korea each year.

And in a testament to the group’s growing appeal, they recently performed alongside Lil Nas X and Billy Ray Cyrus at the 62nd Annual Grammy Awards, becoming the first South Korean band to play at a Grammys ceremony. Importantly, several other South Korean artists are gaining new fans with each passing day.

Spotify recently made headlines for reporting underwhelming earnings in the fourth quarter of 2019. Though the streaming service’s user count hiked considerably, its operating losses . Alongside the earnings report, the company revealed that it had acquired The Ringer, Bill Simmons’ popular culture and sports website and podcast network. Insiders claim that the buyout cost Spotify somewhere in 

Experts believe that K-pop acts have pushed the overall value of South Korea’s music industry to over $5 billion. Ongoing trends and market factors suggest that this value will continue to climb in the coming years.

You Can Now Listen to Pandora on Apple Watch Without an iPhone

Pandora has updated its Apple Watch app, making it a truly standalone experience for listeners.

You can now stream your favorite tunes – no iPhone required. Pandora is one of the first music services to offer this feature. Other services like Apple Music need listeners to pre-load music onto the Apple Watch to listen while the phone is out of range.

“Leave the phone at home and bring all of your listening with you thanks to our updated Apple Watch app,” the update reads. “Now, you can stream your favorite music and podcasts straight from your wrist – no phone required.”

The new Pandora app requires an Apple Watch running watchOS 6 or higher.

Apple Watch support is a key strategy in updating the Pandora experience. In 2019, the company completely redesigned the Apple Watch app. That update included offline playback support for users to pre-load their chosen music and playlists.

Pandora also overhauled its macOS app around this time. The overhaul included new tech called station Modes. These six modes offer new ways to listen to Pandora Music. Each mode has a different music function and responds to thumbs up in different ways.

Pandora station modes include the default ‘My Station’ and five other modes. ‘Crowd Faves’ plays only the most popular tracks. ‘Discovery’ brings artists and tracks to the front that wouldn’t usually play on the station. ‘Deep Cuts’ focuses on lesser-known tracks by artists that would typically play on the station. ‘Newly Released’ plays only the newest music from artists on the station, if available.

‘Artist Only’ mode allows to listen to music only from the artist used to seed the Pandora station. Due to licensing requirements, the ‘Artist Only’ mode requires a Pandora Premium subscription to enjoy. Free listeners can activate a temporary Pandora Premium session by viewing an ad.

 

Floyd Mayweather Claims T.I. Altercation Was Over Tiny

Floyd Mayweather Jr. joined DJ EFN and NORE on the Drink Champs podcast and dropped a bombshell revealing that his 2014 Las Vegas altercation with T.I. was over his wife, Tiny Harris. Despite making nearly a $1 billion in half a decade, Floyd Mayweather has been teasing his resurgence into combat sports, all the while celebrating his iconic undefeated boxing career. Now, the 50-0 world champion boxer has made an unexpected stop at one the culture’s most revered podcasts to discuss his legacy and more. 

During a short segment the two-hour-plus interview, NORE inquired about Floyd Mayweather’s scuffle with T.I. at a local Las Vegas Fatburger. TheWar Report rapper jokingly asked Mayweather if T.I. had ‘snuffed’ him during the altercation. While drinking his cfee, the non-drinking Floyd Mayweather attempted to respond in the most respectful manner he could, stating:

“My thing is this, I just tell men like this– If you feel like your woman is a trophy, she should be at home on the shelf. Period.” Mayweather continued, “A lot times, a man gets mad at a man, you know what I’m saying? When a man should be checking his better half. Like I said before, I’m a king, I have a feast every day.”

Over the years, T.I. and Floyd Mayweather have publicly exchanged jabs. Floyd Mayweather’s DJ even claims that he was jumped by T.I. and his clique in passing last year. The Atlanta rapper also dissed Mayweather for wearing Gucci on the one-f track, “F*ck N***a.” 

While whether or not Floyd Mayweather’s fighting career is actually over remains to be a mystery, he’s making sure his voice is heard and connecting with his audience. Check out Floyd Mayweather’s full Drink Champs interview below.
