Dear Gossips,

Is that a world tour or your girl’s tour?

This is the lyric from Drake’s Back To Back that everyone keeps talking about. But I prefer this one:

I don’t wanna her about this ever again
Not even when she tell ‘em that they better as friends

You know why that’s so good? Because it was pre-emptive. Because that’s the sh-t that they always say about Drake re: Rihanna and Nicki Minaj. That they just liked him as a friend. And it’s done in that signature Drake way. Uhhhh, I don’t want to do this, ok, I feel bad doing this, son, but… OK, I’m doing this. Hit ‘em with a prenup!

But that’s always been Drake’s game. He’s always called himself soft. He went soft on the first diss track, Charged Up. Like foreplay. So when Back To Back came out the other night, it felt like a good old fashioned hard pounding, drilling you into the headboard. And while he’s always said that diss tracks weren’t his thing, well, Meek Mill accused him of using a ghostwriter.

Back To Back made Drake look GOOD. The kind of good that makes them all fall back after a sick dunk at the all-star game.

It’s taken almost a week for Meek Mill to respond. And he did, last night, with a track called Wanna Know, featuring Quentin Miller, the rapper alleged to be Drake’s ghostwriter. Click here to listen. Meek’s had time to work on this. Dayyyys. The expectations were high. He’s the hard to Drake’s soft. It was supposed to be a demolition.

Wellllll…

Weak. Practically half the song is voice recordings from other people, including Puffy, who had his own beef with Drake but who isn’t exactly known to be the world’s most talented rapper. Puffy, as I wrote a few weeks ago, is the world’s #1 hype man. Those aren’t the punches you want to be throwing. But maybe I’m just biased. Because I’m Canadian and because I live in Toronto. Or maybe, in the end, this all benefits Meek. Because before you knew him as Nicki Minaj’s boyfriend. And now you know him as Nicki Minaj’s boyfriend who picked a fight with Drake and couldn’t back it up. So we all win.

Girl Sh-t is the Best Sh-t. Boy Sh-t is the Best Sh-t too!

Have a great weekend!

Dear Gossips,

Can’t go a day right now without hearing Where Are U Now at least a dozen times. So far, on my drive to work this morning, it’s already been twice. Justin Bieber told Ryan Seacrest he has a new track called What Do You Mean dropping in a month. It’s about not knowing what girls want: 

“Girls are often just flip floppy. They say something and then they mean something else. I mean, I don’t really know. That’s why I’m asking, ‘What do you mean?’”

What he means, when he barely moves his lips in the video for Where Are U Now, is that a new album is coming. And that he expects to have a career in his 20s.  Read Full Intro

Janet wall-dancing

Few people do slow jam wall-dancing better than Janet Jackson. And that’s how she opens the video for No Sleeep. That’s the gift we’ve been given this week after 5 days of great gossip… New Janet! But familiar hair! And that familiar sexiness.  So that it’s fresh but still feels old school. Full Story

Beyonce stepped out yesterday after MTV nominated her for 5 VMAs, including Video of the Year. And they’re saying she’s a co-frontrunner in the category with Taylor Swift, of course. And, well, that just reminds us all of 2009, doesn’t it? I’ve asked you this already but it’s worth asking again – now that 6 years have passed, and you look back on that incident…do you still feel the same outrage? Kanye West was objecting to Taylor’s video winning over Beyonce’s Single Ladies. Full Story

Bitch I’m Madonna, the remix

Madonna released a new video for Bitch I’m Madonna, the remix. More like redo. This is what she should have done in the first place, instead of what we got the first time around, when the launch was f-cked up by Tidal and all we ended up seeing were people making cameos…without actually having to be in the same room as her. Full Story

Last week I wondered whether or not Smutty Swift Collecting should be a daily feature on this blog. I feel like there is totally enough material to make it happen. Taylor played two shows in New Jersey this weekend. And, as expected, she collected. Everything counts in large amounts. (I had Depeche Mode on repeat all weekend. Full Story

A couple of days ago, Iggy Azalea was asked on Twitter about Pretty Girls, her collaboration with Britney Spears, and why the song didn’t do very well: @rhuancesarr its difficult to send a song up the charts without additional promo and tv performances etc. Full Story

Sunday in London. At a recording studio. Chris Martin and Guy Berryman (I think? It looks like Guy Berryman, right?) were there. And then Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt arrived. Maybe they were working independently at the same place. But then again, Angelina and Chris have worked together before. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

Younger, faster, stronger? Most of the time, I guess.

But if you watched the BET Awards last night and the tribute to Janet Jackson, that choreography not only still holds up, it’s a challenge for the new generation. And the drop-step-walk from Rhythm Nation will never, ever, ever not look good. So, no, that is definitely not the end. Janet is back. And she more than made up for the excessive amount of Chris Brown during the show.

Smokey Robinson did too. First Smokey lectured the audience about being too far up their own asses and to stop being so spoiled. “So don’t be so full of yourselves.” And this happened right after Diddy introduced him after bigging himself up first. Then Smokey performed and I almost got pregnant. Like, if I had any interest in having a baby, Smokey would have made that happen.

More BET Awards coverage to come.

Yours in gossip,

“10 years from now we’ll still be on top” Well it’s been 20. And Puff Daddy’s almost a billionaire, with a net worth of $735 million, making him the richest man in hip-hop, ahead of Dr Dre. (Source) Which is apparently why the athletics department at UCLA recruited his son. Full Story
