After the Paris shows today, Kanye brought his newly platinum blonde wife Kim to the Balmain party (above). They were on their umpteenth wardrobe change for the day, and seemed to be loving it all.
Solange also hit up a Prada party after the shows looking gorgeous in red and pair of killer white pumps.
But before the parties, Solange, rocking a different colorful look, hit the front row of the Lanvin show with her sis Kelly Rowland, newly blonde Jared Leto, and The Wests.
Before kicking off her European tour next week, Nicki Minaj weighs in on a few things that have been making headlines recently. The Head Barb gushes over her beau Meek Mill, weighs in on her boss Lil Wayne suing Cash Money and gives her side on why Tyga was not a feature on her hit track “Truffle Butter.”
Sip her tea inside….
Nicki Minaj (above during rehearsals) is currently in L.A. gearing up for her upcoming “The Pinkprint” European tour with Trey Songz which kicks off in Sweden on Monday (March 16th).
But before she treks it across the pond, the “Only One” raptress called into BBC Radio 1 to chop it up with Charlie Sloth about a few things that are hot in the headlines. And, of course, her love life is at the top of the discussion.
Young Money's first lady and Meek Mill have been spending plenty of time together and they will have plenty of time to grow closer as they are slated to go on a joint tour later this year. Neither of them have confirmed their coupledom status, but it's pretty clear with their love-dovey Instagram posts and boo'd up body language when they're out on the scene.
Opening up a bit, Nicki gushed on the vibe she shares with the MMG rapper saying,
“We’re just super compatible and, you know, we just be having fun together. When the kid do it, the kid get it done, nah mean? [laughs]”
Switching gears, the “Anaconda” raptress then weighed in on her boss Lil Wayne suing Birdman/Cash Money for $51 million after he wasn’t paid the $10 milli he was owed for The Carter V album and other legalities. Although she says she super loyal to Wayne, she isn’t choosing sides because she’s just as close to Birdman. She said,
“People know I love Wayne and that I have loyalty towards him but I love Baby [Birdman] too. I am very close to Baby and I don’t think people know that. I am banking on the fact that they will work this out like family. They’ve gone through things before, just like family does. It is what it is. They’re going to get through it. I’m not even going to think that way.”
On to the music…
The Head Barb talked about the video treatment for the heavily spinned track “Truffle Butter,” featuring Drake and Lil Wayne. She said the fact that “Truffle Butter” is the #1 urban and rhymic song in America without a video, she doesn’t really feel the need to make one. She said she may release a lyric video in the coming days.
Then, of course, her soon-to-be former label mate Tyga was brought up during the discussion. In a previous interview with the Breakfast Club, T-Raww made claims that Nicki dissed him when she took him off of “Truffle Butter” single and that’s why he said [in the VIBE interview] they no longer got along.
Nicki responds, “We don’t know how, but it magically ended up in Tyga’s hands. I told him, I was like, ‘You know that’s my song.'”
Somehow, the track leaked with him on it (she felt he was behind the leak) after she asked him not to put it out, and she felt disrespected. She spilled,
“I had always done stuff with him, took him on tour with me, and I thought it was disrespectful because I am the queen of Young Money [laughs].”
Then she said he apologized,
“But he texted me and he apologized. He said ‘you were always there for me’ and I respected him for that. I’m a very forgiving person. As long as you can come to your senses after the fact and remember who was there and who supports you, then it’s all good. He’s entitled to make a mistake every now and then, and we handled it as such.”
Rihanna is teasing fans with new music for her upcoming “R8” album. Check the snippets of her new track “Higher” and get the deets on Pharrell Wiliams' newest country project inside….
Looks like we may be nearing the release of Rihanna’s next album. The Pop princess took to her Instagram today to release two snippets of a brand new track titled “Higher.” And it will likely be featured on her upcoming album, tentatively titled R8.
On the Kuk Harrell and Marcos Tovar-produced track, Rih is feeling good after a few drinks of some whisky and is in search for some male attention. She croons,
“Higher, higher than I’ve ever been, babe / Just come over, let’s pour a drink, babe / I hope I ain’t callin’ you too late.” --
She captioned one snippet, "5 am drunk off da whiskey with these two rockstars @officialkukharrell @djanser !!! These guys always hold me down even at the craziest hours! We've made every album since #GoodGirlGoneBad together! The family!!! One Love #R8"
Who's ready for Rih to release her next album? We sure are.
Following the release of her new track “Towards the Sun” for the DreamWorks animated film HOME soundtrack, we get another preview of a new RiRi track.
In a trailer for the upcoming film—which hits theaters March 27th—a song titled “Dancing in the Dark” serves as the backdrop tunes. And we get to hear Rih's voice over as her character Tip. Check it above.
The HOME soundtrack drops March 24th, three days before the film hits theaters. Will you be taking the kiddies to see HOME?
In other music news....
Yesterday, Pharrell Williams was spotted (above, along with his wife Helen) making his way inside the Roybal Federal Building in L.A. to take the stand in the “Blurred Lines” lawsuit.
We told you the hit 2013 single earned P, Robin Thicke and T.I. (along with their labels) $16.6 million in profits. And since Marvin Gaye’s family believes the guys ripped off Marvin’s classic "Got to Give It Up," they want their share. We’ll keep you posted on the happenings of the court proceedings.
In happier news...
The incredibly talented producer will be working his magic during some off time from taping the highly popular singing competition show, “The Voice.”
P is teaming up with country singing group The Band Perry to produce some tracks for their upcoming album. And they’re thrilled about getting in the studio with the star.
“We’re being really crazy about the different collaborations that we’re diving into. We got to hang out with Pharrell a couple weeks ago. He’s like a huge country music fan, and he also really loves what we do with harmony. One thing that we worked on with him was this song where all three of us sing different interwoven vocals on the verse and on the chorus.”
