Kanye West's Sunday Service Tickets At Joel Osteen's Church Drop Friday: Report 

The Lakewood Church in Houston will reportedly get a massive dose of hip hop gospel this weekend as Kanye West's Sunday Service is set to descend on the house of worship. We previously reported that the budding friendship between Kanye and famed Lakewood Church pastor Joel Osteen has been growing for some time, and now the rapper will speak at the church this Sunday.

Initially, reports stated that it wouldn't be a Sunday Service musical performance, however, it looks as if things have changed. TMZ first shared that Ye would speak with Osteen at the pulpit for 20 to 30 minutes, but their new report states the rapper and his choir of 120 people will take to the stage. It's likely to be Kanye's largest indoor Sunday Service to date, as Osteen's church houses 17,000 seats with upwards of 50,000 people attending service every weekend. The church may accommodate a massive amount of guests, but TMZ reports there is still a worry that there won't be enough seats available. The outlet also says that tickets for the event go on sale on Friday and will be distributed on a "first some, first served" basis.

If this all goes down according to plan, it's unclear if this will be filmed for Osteen's televised program which airs to seven to 10 million viewers worldwide each week. The news of Osteen and Kanye's partnership has been met with contention due to the controversy during Hurrican Harvey in 2017. The destructive storm displaced thousands of residents in Houston, and there were reports that Lakewood Church turned evacuees away. It was an allegation that Osteen would later deny.

Songs For You will be Tinashe's third studio album following the Kentucky-born, California-raised artist's release Joyride last year. About a month ago, the singer shared a trailer to tease her forthcoming project.  "Do you ever feel like nobody knows who the f*ck you are?" she said in the clip. "All the time I feel so authentic with my life and somehow people still don’t understand me. They don’t understand what I’m about. They don’t understand how I move...They say, 'Who are you? Who are you? Who are you?' Which is f*cking weird to me because I know exactly who I am."

Songs For You only boasts a handful of features from the aforementioned Ms. Banks and 6LACK, along with G-Eazy. Check out Tinashe's trailer for her record, along with her album cover and tracklist, below.

Orlando Brown Expecting Another Child, Claims Girlfriend Has Disappeared 

Actor Orlando Brown's long battle with addiction has unraveled in the media in recent years, but he insists that now he's clean and sober. Almost a year ago, Orlando sat down with Dr. Phil for an interview that left viewers both perplexed and concerned, but the child star—who is known for his roles on The Proud Family and That's So Raven—has reportedly been seeking help with his addictions to alcohol, marijuana, and crystal meth.

Orlando has also stated in the past that he has a number of children out in the world but shared that he didn't know all of their names. It seems as if there's another on the way because he updated his Instagram with a photo of a sonogram and a lengthy caption. According to the read, it seems as if the actor is having problems with his girlfriend who has disappeared.

"Every time I get a woman that makes me happy its always 4 dudes that end up making them disappear soon as she gets pregnant..." Orlando wrote mysteriously. "Well here we are again... My girl is pregnant and no were to be found... and I was set up again yesterday.... Im focused... no drugs ... clear mind finally back on track but for some reason I just can't be happy and live my life with who i'm in love with because greedy and envious people who own the world already refuse to rest until I'm officially dead... They are waiting on me to snap and end up in jail ... and it wont be my nor my girls fault .. so to those demons out there trying to provoke me to loose everything.... immaturity is a disease... not a choice!" What's mine, is mines, said the Lord the God selah.... blessings manifest 🙏🏽🙏🏽🙏🏽🙏🏽🙏🏽🙏🏽🙏🏽🙏🏽🙏🏽💯💯💯🙏🏽💯🧐"

Disney+ Removes Michael Jackson's Simpson Episode & Fans Aren't Happy 

This year, we've seen companies disassociate themselves from Michael Jackson. The Leaving Neverland documentary that was released at the top of 2019 once again made the music legend's child abuse scandals at the forefront of conversations with new accusations gruesomely shared by two men, James Safechuck and Wade Robinson. They stated that as children Jackson repeatedly sexually abused them, and the shocking tale caused a ripple effect of Michael Jackson removals across the media.

There were radio stations that pulled Jackson's music from rotations. museums that removed Jackson's statues from their venues, and television shows that promised to never again air Jackson-related programming. Of the latter was the long-standing series The Simpsons that welcomed Jackson as a guest on "Stark Raving Dad," the 1991 episode that was the first of the show's third season.

The Simpsons can now be found in its entirety on the newly launched Disney+, but fans who signed up to stream their favorite show have found themselves disappointed. "Stark Raving Dad" is missing from the list, and it isn't surprising since it was announced back in March that the episode would no longer be aired.

“It feels clearly the only choice to make,” executive producer James L. Brooks told the Wall Street Journal. Brooks also stated that his fellow executive producers, Matt Groening and Al Jean, echoed his sentiment. "The guys I work with — where we spend our lives arguing over jokes — were of one mind on this."

Jackson fans sounded off on social media about the singer's Disney+ exclusion, so read a few of those reactions below.

Chance The Rapper, Cardi B, Lizzo, Billie Eilish & More Read Funny "Mean Tweets" 

It's about that time for another installment of Mean Tweets, courtesy of Jimmy Kimmel Live! On Wednesday, the late-night talk show gathered a handful of musicians to read off some often-scathing tweeted criticisms from the public. In this edition Chance The Rapper, Cardi B, Lizzo, Billie Eilish, John Mayer, Perry Farrell, Luke Bryan, Green Day, Monsta X, Alice Cooper, Midland, and Luke Combs sit in the hot seat.

Billie Eilish's attire apparently looks like a gym's reject bin, but her tweet wasn't as bad as Chance's. "Chance the Rapper? More like Chance the worthless spineless d*ckless soulless purposeless virtueless sellout. Nice Doritos commercial, you piece of sh*t," the Twitter user wrote. The rapper laughed and said, "There's people that don't like me? What the f*ck?"

Another person said Lizzo looks as if she's seen a lot of "bus passes and happy meals," while someone else said they watched a muted performance of Cardi B and she just looked like she was loud. "Suck my ass," the rapper replied. A few of these were definitely gems, including Alice Cooper and Green Day, so check them all out below and let us know if which, if any, were your favorites.

Viviva A. Fox Doesn't Want "Set It Off" Reboot: "Create Your Own Thing" 

The Set It Off remake is reportedly in the works, but it doesn't have a blessing from Vivica A. Fox. The 55-year-old actress starred in the original film back in 1996 alongside Kimberly Elise, Jada Pinkett, and Queen Latifah. The bank-robbing film is a fan favorite even decades later, so it's been reported that filmmaker Issa Rae is hoping to recreate it for modern audiences.

However, not everyone is keen on Set It Off hitting the silver screen once again. During a chat with ET Live, Vivica was asked her thoughts on the possible reboot. After staring at the camera disapprovingly, the actress told host Melicia Johnson it's best to let it be. "It's a classic, leave it alone," she stated. "There's absolutely no reason to try to redo it. It's been done, and we did it so well, that people are absolutely going to compare it to that and I think that's her taking on a tremendous chore because that film has become a cult classic and some things are just better left like, create your own franchise."

"If you want to do a new film of girls robbing banks, create your own thing," she continued. "You can make it up to date. Like you said, we did that film in 1996. We are in 2019, going into 2020. So, create your own thing because people are absolutely going to compare it to it, and she'll probably, if it's not good, they're going to slay her for it."

Watch Vivica's full interview below, including her remarks about what could be another installment of Quentin Tarantino's Kill Bill franchise and whether or not she'd return to that series.

Jennifer Lopez Hopes Super Bowl Performance Will Bring "Everybody Together" 

Jennifer Lopez and Shakira previously announced that they will be headlining the 2020 half time show for the annual Super Bowl. The move was brought on with some mixed reactions since the NFL was (is) still dealing with backlash after Colin Kaepernick kneeled during the national anthem to protest police brutality.

Jennifer Lopez recently chatted with Variety and opened up about her performance, calling it a "dream come true" and how she looks forward to showcasing two Latin women on stage. 

“I think it’s important in this day and age for two Latin women to be standing on that stage — when Latinos are being treated a certain way in this country, or looked at a certain way — to show that we have a really specific and beautiful culture and worth and value, and we bring something to this country that’s necessary,” Jennifer explained. “I think that’s going to be an amazing moment. That night, I want it to be a celebration of who we are. All of us, because we’re in this together.”

Rihanna was previously asked to perform at the Super Bowl but made it clear she turned down the move based on principle. “I couldn’t dare do that,” she said in a recent story with Vogue. “For what? Who gains from that? Not my people."

Kehlani Addresses Fans Worried About Her Mental Health Following "You Know Wassup" 

In a surprise move, Kehlani shared her new single "You Know Wassup" with fans on Tuesday evening. The Bay Area singer wrote on Twitter that she'd only completed the track just a few hours prior to its release and said it was "unmixed and unmastered." In all, it was a raw, unfiltered take on where she is emotionally following the recent scandal that occurred with her beau, rapper YG, and an unnamed woman outside of a nightclub.

After a video of YG and the woman circulated, people awaited Kehlani's response—something that the singer didn't deliver until she dropped her single. The emotionally vulnerable track showed a heartbroken and frustrated woman who doesn't know what to do, but Kehlani shared that after waiting five years to be with YG, she can't just turn her love for him away.

Like the true supporters that they are, Kehlani's fans took to social media to offer kind words to the singer, but a few were worried about her mental and emotional health. Kehlani caught wind of the concerns and updated her fans, letting them know that she's doing well in spite of the circumstances.

"But naw forreal. i’m good y’all. i see people starting a hashtag about hoping my mental is ok and me possibly needing a therapist. lmao. I’m straight forreal. I’m an artist. I dive inward. glad it’s doing something for you all tho. love you," Kehlani tweeted. "The fire thing about music is you can express the wildest and furthest parts of the emotions youre experiencing, even just the things the little back of your head voice is screaming.. or even the devil on your shoulder. flush it out and it keep it flowin." You can listen to "You Know Wassup" here.

It's been a life-changing last couple of months for Kevin Hart, but the comedian is excited to get back into the swing of things.

Cuba Gooding Jr.'s Lawyer Fights Indictment After Grand Jury Wasn't Shown Video Evidence 

Cuba Gooding Jr.'s lawyer is doing everything in his power to get his client off the 6-count indictment that just went down in New York. As we know, the actor has been fighting a few assault and groping cases, more recently pleading not guilty to a butt pinching case. TMZ now reports that Cuba has been indicted by a grand jury. 


Taylor Hill/Getty Images 

According to the publication, the jury didn't see multiple videos of the incidents leading Cuba's lawyer, Mark Heller, to file a motion to have the move dismissed. Cuba and his team call the ruling "grossly inappropriate and unjust" since the District Attorney did not provide video evidence of what went down. They "chose here to trick the system by not giving the Grand Jury a fair opportunity to evaluate all of the facts and evidence," Cuba's team added. 

The string of cases against Cuba began this past summer when he was accused of grabbing a woman's breast at a rooftop bar in New York. “I trust the system, and the process speaks for itself,” Cuba said when the charges came to light.. “All I have to say is the following, in this time and age we need to let people speak for themselves, we have to let people express themselves. And now I’m giving the process the chance to show what really happened, what went down.”

Bobby Brown's Alleged Abuse Against Whitney Houston Detailed In Memoir 

The unlikely relationship between Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown may have confused some, but for a time, the couple were happy and in love. There were a few bizarre antics that played out for reality television cameras on Being Bobby Brown, but according to Whitney's best friend Robyn Crawford, there was much more unfolding behind the scenes.


Diane Freed/Getty Images

In Robyn's memoir A Song For You: My Life With Whitney Houston that was released on Tuesday, Robyn detailed the alleged physical abuse Bobby exacted on his wife. "A few days into the honeymoon [in 1992], I heard talk around the office about an altercation between Whitney and Bobby," Robyn wrote in her book. "Someone on the yacht had placed a call to [Whitney’s father] John Houston telling him that something had gone down, and when the lovebirds returned, Whitney had a visible scar on the side of her face. The cut was at least three inches, running in a straight line from the top of her cheek down to the jaw."

Robyn said Whitney offered up this excuse: "We had a disagreement. I threw a glass, the glass hit the wall, shattered, and that’s how the cut happened. Couples argue all the time and it’s never a big deal. Except when it’s me." The singer's friend thought Whitney was lying. "I did not believe her because it was a straight line and it took forever for Roxanna Floyd, who was her makeup artist at that time, to cover it up,” Crawford said. "And that scar stayed with her. So no, I didn’t believe that.”

While Whitney was married to Bobby, Robyn said the singer became isolated. "I saw and heard him speak to her in ways that were demeaning and [talked] down to her. That [would] not make me feel good if someone was talking to me that way," Robyn wrote. She also shared a story of Bobby spitting in Whitney's face and cursing at her at a luxury hotel.

Meanwhile, over the years Bobby has adamantly denied that he was violent with Whitney, however, he did share in his 2016 memoir Every Little Step and in an interview with Robin Robins that there were times when he physically assaulted the singer.

Travis Scott's Nike Air Force 1 Low Already Reselling For 5x Retail Price 

There's yet another "Cactus Jack" sneaker collab dropping this weekend - this time taking shape in the form of a Nike Air Force 1 Low. Men's sizes of the limited edition sneakers will retail for a mere $160, but the kicks are already reselling for nearly five times that on StockX.

With an average resale price of over $750, Travis Scott's latest Nike AF1 Low rivals the super exclusive white colorway that debuted in 2017 as part of Nike's AF100 collection. Even his 2018 "Sail" AF1 Low collab goes for an average of $500, so you can expect the latest "Cactus Jack" Air Force 1 Low to be another very valuable pickup this weekend. 

The 2019 collab is much busier than the two that dropped in 2017 and 2018, as it features a patchwork design highlighted by a combination of materials including leather, suede, canvas and corduroy. The kicks are also decked out in a dizzying array of colors such as gold, purple, navy and black, with a zip-up shroud covering the tongue and laces.

Nike Explains Decision To Stop Selling Their Sneakers On Amazon 

For the longest time, fake sneakers sold by independent vendors were running amock on Amazon and Nike felt as though they needed to do something about it. In 2017, Nike signed a deal with Amazon so they could sell their products without any fears of fakes on the market. While this seemed to work out quite nicely for Nike, it appears as though they have decided to end their partnership with Amazon, according to Sole Collector.

Over the last year, Nike has been shifting its focus to direct-to-consumer efforts and this latest move is yet another example of that. Through a statement to Bloomberg NewsNike went in-depth on its decision to cease all sales on Amazon.

"As part of Nike’s focus on elevating consumer experiences through more direct, personal relationships, we have made the decision to complete our current pilot with Amazon Retail. We will continue to invest in strong, distinctive partnerships for Nike with other retailers and platforms to seamlessly serve our consumers globally," the sportswear brand explained.

There will plenty of other ways to purchase Nike shoes so all of you die-hard Nike fans out there won't have to worry. The Nike SNKRS App continues to be a popular method of purchase while online retailers and brick and mortar stores remain great options.

Nicki Minaj's Mom Carol Maraj "Would Love" To Collab With Daughter On Gospel Track 

Could a mother-daughter collaboration be in the works? Over the summer, Carol Maraj took a bold step and released her single "What Makes You." The mother to famed rapper Nicki Minaj's track was initially being reported to be a gospel record, but Carol chatted with PEOPLE Now and shared it's more pop than anything she's worked on in the past.

"It kind of encourages people to love themselves," Carol said. "To build your self-esteem. It's really a feel-good song." Because "What Makes You" is about self-love, the host asked Carol what she loves most about herself. She said no matter what people feel about her, it doesn't change her opinion about herself.

Carol added that she "would love to"' collaborate with Nicki on a song in the future and that it would probably "be more gospel." The proud mother shared that she believes Nicki's love for music was inspired by her, as Carol "sang all the time when they were young." Wherever her children were in the home, Carol said if they heard her belting out a tune, they would come to listen. "They always heard me singing around the house," she added.

Watch Mama Maraj's interview below and check out what else she had to say about The Carol Maraj Foundation Against Domestic Violence and how, as a survivor herself, Carol wanted to help others in need.

Adrienne Houghton Confirms Fabolous's "You Be Killin Em" Beat Was Made For Her 

Her name was mentioned only briefly in a recent episode of Drink Champs, but it was enough for Adrienne Houghton to want to clear the air on The Real. N.O.R.E. and Fabolous were speaking about Fab's hit single "You Be Killin Em" on Drink Champs and the host questioned him about the track initially being "for that girl from The View. Lenny S.’s girl. I heard that that was the beat for [Adrienne]’s song. Lenny S. played it for her, she loved it. Then he played it for you."


Frazer Harrison/Getty Images

On The Real, Adrienne said, "To set the story straight, the song, the track was absolutely made for me. Back when I was signed to Def Jam...I was dating Lenny and we actually got studio time with Ryan Leslie who is an incredible producer, and I was telling Ryan, 'This is the kinda music that I want.' Crazy enough, my album that never came out was titled Unapologetic, which later was [the title of] Rihanna's."

"I really wanted something that felt hard and had this vibe, I was being very outspoken on the album," Adrienne continued. "And I was like, 'I want something that feels [she mimics a beat].'" She stated that Ryan specifically made the beat for her and then they began searching for writers, but they may have taken too long because Lenny told them that he was going to give it to Fab. "It ended up being the smash song 'You Be Killin Em.'" Watch the clip below.

The Joe Budden Podcast Weighs In On T.I.'s Hymen Controversy 

Social media was recently turned upside down after T.I. revealed on Nadia Moham and Nazanin Mandi's Ladies Like Us podcast that he visits the gynecologist with his 18-year-old daughter Deyjah Harris to make sure that she's a virgin by having the physician check for her hymen. Since the podcast aired, T.I. has been heavily criticized by the public for what they call "policing" a woman's vagina, and the men over on The Joe Budden Podcast discussed the controversy on a recent episode. Joe and his crew didn't want to get into talking about a teenage girl's body parts, but they did want to share their takes on the situation.

"That's another rule of mine. I don't tell parents how they should parent," Joe said. Mal later added that he understood T.I. was attempting to communicate that he is an overprotective father. "I don't think he should have said this on a public platform, one," Mal said, adding, "And two, if you and your daughter have that relationship, then I think that should be a relationship between you and your daughter." They all agreed that T.I.'s move to share that information with the public about his teenage daughter wasn't a good look.

"How you maneuver as a famous parent to your of age [child], like they're 18 and they have to really go out and deal with the world, school classmates, their peers, their friends, it's important," Joe said. "I even think twice about the things I even write under my kid's Instagram because I don't know what you got going on, how you are with your friends, I don't know how they're receiving you. I don't want to embarrass you."

It's clear the Joe wanted to be careful about speaking specifically about T.I.'s relationship with Deyjah, but it seems that the hosts take more issue with the publicity of it all more than the actual act of T.I.'s request. Watch the clip below.

John Legend Talks Having Close Relationship With Mother Following Her Years Of Addiction 

Singer John Legend and his model mogul wife Chrissy Teigen love putting their family of four on display. The couple often share photos and funny moments they have with their children, three-year-old Luna and 18-month-old Miles, and Chrissy is known for her quips about her husband she delivers on social media.

John's transformation into becoming a husband and a father has helped mend other familial relationships in his life, specifically the one with his mother, Phyllis Stephens. During John's adolescence, the matriarch developed a long list of criminal offenses and arrests due to her drug addiction, but in a recent interview PEOPLE as their "Sexiest Man Alive," the singer shared that he's developed a new relationship with his mother after putting forgiveness into practice.

"My mom spends a lot of time with the kids and she loves coming to visit me at The Voice too," John shared. "We’re really close now partially because of the kids." It hasn't been an easy process, but it was worth it in the end. "You have to do some forgiving too when you’re older. We’re in a really good place now."

Meanwhile, check out a few more photos from his PEOPLE feature and watch John read the sexiest tweets about him with PEOPLE TV below.

Prince's Cousin Recalls Singer's Overdose A Week Before Death: "He Died On The Plane" 

Music icon Prince's talents were so beloved by millions that fans almost believed him to be invincible. So, when he was found dead in his home in April 2016, the world paused in shock. A coroner would later determine that Prince died of an accidental overdose of fentanyl, leading to revelations about the musician's addiction to opiates.

In a forthcoming episode of E! True Hollywood Story, Prince's cousin, Charles Smith, candidly speaks about the singer's near-death experience that occurred just a little over a week prior to his death. According to Charles, Prince was in his private plane when he stopped breathing. "He died on the plane," he says. "Then, they brought him back."

Immediately after the singer was revived using Narcan, a drug that counteracts the effects of opioids, he was rushed to a hospital. "Somebody said they wanted to test his blood, and Prince refused to get his blood tested. Somebody was hiding something," Charles recalls. He added that things didn't change much after that incident. "Prince is back to being Prince again and they take him back home. He should've never left that hospital."

"He's flown back to Minneapolis," Charles shares. "I'm like, what? Who does that? After you almost die on the plane. Just look at how many chances everybody had, that was in that circle, to say something or do something. He didn't have a chance." Watch the clip below and tune in for the full episode this Sunday.
