It’s been a week and a few days since Kanye West suffered that complete and total breakdown. First by cancelling his show at the L.A. Forum and then the following day, November 21st cancelling his entire tour and then hours later suffering the breakdown where cops were called and he was rushed to the hospital and put on a psych hold. We may now know what caused this. November 21st is the Anniversary of Kanye’s mothers death. If you recall, Donda West died back around that date due to complications from plastic surgery. He increasingly became emotional as that date approached and that along with touring, being a parent and providing emotional support for Kim who was robbed in Paris finally took its toll. He’s also never fully grieved over his mom’s death and has always had problems around this time. For now West remain hospitalized and sedated. There’s no word when he will be released but regardless of your thoughts on him or his music, this was serious and we wish him luck in his recovery.
Mr 305 is deep in a lawsuit over stealing a guitar riff for his super hit “Timber”. A long time ago legendary funk singer William Underwood created a track called, “Weak at the Knees” and Underwood is claiming is court that Pit and sampled it and used it for Timber. It should be noted that Pitbull isn’t being directly sued but his publishing company who wrote the track is. After listening to both we don’t hear the similarities but you be the judge:
Multiple stories surfaced a few days ago proclaiming Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom had broken up. Pretty much right before Thanksgiving BUT photos on Instagram would dispute those claims. Katy and Orlando took IG’s photos of the two enjoying delicious Turkey and Yams with Katy’s family. So if they really did break up, wouldn’t it be highly unlikely they would be breaking bread together? Seems to us like their 10 month relationship is going strong. Gobble Gobble.
Call us naive but we didn’t even know Nick, Joe and Kevin Jonas had a little brother. They do and the younger sibling was just busted with some sticky icky in Nashville. The “4th” Jonas Brother, Frankie Jonas is 16 and was busted for possession of marijuana last night. It all went down outside a 7-11. What’s strange is his family has nothing but praise for Frankie and they all say he is a good kid who’s never been in trouble before. Although he’s only 16 he’s already graduated high school and is in college so he’s smart too. Frankie is one lucky kid though because all he got was a ticket and a slap on the wrist thanks to city laws in Nashville.
Following a tragic death, an arrest has finally been made in the death of 3 Doors Down guitarist Matt Roberts. Roberts, just 38 when he died, died from a prescription drug overdose in a hotel just outside of Milwaukee. Roberts served as the lead guitarist of the band from their inception in 1996 until 2012 when he left the band for health reasons.
During his departure, Roberts stated that this was due to performing near 300 dates per year, and the band having exacerbated health and circulation issues that he was currently dealing with. He continued to mention that the band would always hold a special place in his heart, but needed to take this time off for his own health.
Police have now made the arrest of a doctor who was reportedly in connection with Roberts prior to his death. The alleged physician is believed to be from Alabama, a ways away from where his death was confirmed in West Bend, Wisc. Illegal drug distribution has been the primary charge in the case. Throughout his time as physician, Snellgrove (the accused) prescribed Roberts 5 different controlled substances in the names of different individuals, but (police) also have stated that the intended recipient of the drugs were all for Roberts.

Adele might and we stress might be pregnant with number two. At the very least she’s got baby fever. Adele was in Phoenix Monday night and before she wrapped up her North American tour, she decided to share some baby info with her fans. The timing of the new baby is what is in question right now. Although she was sketchy on the timing she’s probably not knocked up just quite yet. She poured champagne for her band and actually sipped on some wine for herself to close out the show. It makes sense she isn’t pregnant yet but trying. Of course Adele’s rep is radio silent but since she’s done touring don’t you think it makes sense?
It’s hard to believe that Coldplay’s “Head Full of Dreams” is almost 1 year old already and if you just can’t get enough of the band, no worries. Chris Martin, yesterday, assured all their fans that new music is on the way. Plans are in the works to release a new EP next year titled “Kaleidoscope”.
Although the release date, track list, etc are an unknown. The EP announcement comes just weeks after Coldplay announced their 2017 North American arena-stadium tour. In case you’re wondering why the name “Kaleidoscope”, the band says it comes from another track on the current 2015 album in addition to complementing the multi-colored, spectrum-covering aesthetic of just about all of Coldplay’s related artwork since. Sounds funky.
