  • REPORT: IS JAY Z TRYING TO DITCH TIDAL?

  • Fri, 31 Jul 2015 01:00:00 EST

    Rumor has it that Jay Z is trying to break ties with Tidal. Hits Daily Double has reported, "Tidal has gone eerily quiet as of late, apart from statements of support from Nicki Minaj and Madonna, and the word is that Jay Z is looking to get out. This ambitious undertaking has cost him millions of his own money because he never got the expected funding, he still hasn’t paid the licensing fees to the rights holders and no one is likely to throw him a life preserver and bail him out, so he has little choice at this point except to stop the bleeding."

    The site continued, "What will his exit strategy look like? Interesting to note that it’s not Apple, Sony, UMG or WMG that could be putting the final nail in the Tidal coffin, but Cash Money’s Slim and Baby Williams, with their copyright-infringement suit against the service for its recent exclusive with alienated label artist Lil Wayne."

    • Word of Jay departing from Tidal has not yet been confirmed or denied.

  • Fri, 31 Jul 2015 01:00:00 EST

    • The insider added, "They’ve been trying for a while, and it was so hard when it wasn’t happening. They both desperately wanted another child and feel so lucky. They’d love to involve Blue, because they know how much she wants a little brother or sister."


  • KATY PERRY'S DISPUTE OVER HER CONVENT PURCHASE CONTINUES

  • Fri, 31 Jul 2015 01:00:00 EST

    Looks like Katy Perry's dispute to purchase her convent isn't over just yet. According to Page Six, a judge said on Thursday (July 30th) that he believes that the nuns who owned the estate improperly sold the convent to a businesswoman, but delayed any efforts by church officials to finalize the sale of the convent to Perry. Superior Court Judge James C. Chalfant will wrap up the case regarding the estate within months of litigation.

    However, the judge preliminary ruled that Dana Hollister's purchase of the convent was invalid. He ordered Hollister to pay $25,000 a month to support the nuns. Not only that, Chalfant also denied representatives of Los Angeles' Catholic archbishop as well as Perry, access to the convent during the dispute.

    • Hollister plans to turn the estate into a boutique hotel and restaurant, while Perry is looking to make the estate into her private home.

  • AMY WINEHOUSE'S DAD DECLARES WAR WITH 'AMY' DIRECTOR

  • Fri, 31 Jul 2015 01:00:00 EST

    Amy Winehouse's father has declared a war between himself and Asif Kapadia -- who directed his late daughter's documentary titled Amy. Mitch Winehouse took to Twitter earlier this week and wrote, "To all of Amy's Brazilian fans. Why no mention of the great Brazilian tour 2010/11 in Amy's film? @asifkapadia is the director. Tweet him and ask why." After a fan replied to Mitch, calling him "naughty," Amy's dad said, "Why am I naughty?" The fan then said, "Make love...not war." Mitch responded with, "It's too late. They started war."

    • According to That Grape Juice, Mitch later explained his ill-feelings towards Asif Kapadia, saying, "It was 2005. Amy had fallen – she was drunk and banged her head. She came to my house, and her manager came around and said: 'She’s got to go to rehab.' But she wasn’t drinking every day. She was like a lot of kids, going out binge-drinking. And I said: 'She doesn’t need to go to rehab.' In the film, I’m relating the story, and what I said was: 'She didn’t need to go to rehab at that time.' He leans forward and emphasizes the words. 'They’ve edited me out saying ‘at that time.'"

    • She added, "In the age where everything is about a big, bold, beautiful brow—we kind of want to do the opposite."

  • Fri, 31 Jul 2015 01:00:00 EST

    Nicki Minaj's ex Safaree Samuels had some words for both Nicki and Meek Mill. A TMZ photographer asked SB how he felt about Nicki throwing a shot at him during one of her "Pinkprint" tour stops, calling him a "b*tch a** n*gga" who couldn't write her raps because he didn't have the "mind frame or the motherf*cking intellect" to do so. Safaree responded, telling the site, "I think they both need to get off my d*ck. Just know I ain't staying quiet no more. You would think that n*ggas on a world tour would have way better sh*t to do than to worry about lil old Stuntman. It's cool to get hype and say sh*t in front of a crowd when nobody knows better, but people are gonna know better." Cameraman: "So you stand by the fact that you wrote a lot of her stuff?" Safaree: "100%. Anytime you say something, I’m saying something back so cut that stupid sh*t out. Get off my d*ck. The both of yall."

    • In other news, although Birdman and Lil Wayne have their issues, it's all love between Nicki and Birdman.
