Rihanna Is Being Considered To Play Whitney Houston In A Biopic About The Singer’s Life

Azealia Banks Reveals Details Of Debut Album
Azealia Banks‘ debut album will be called Broke With Expensive Taste and it will be out this September. She said, “I’m not trying to withdraw, but I am trying to find that personal space again because I have an album to finish… All the praise from the fashion world is great but now everybody wants a piece and everybody wants an interview, but I need to step away and get my music done.” We can’t wait!

Following in the footsteps of Kaye West (literally, ha!) Weezy is going to have his very own line of shoes. He said, “I do have a shoe coming out soon but it won’t be Trukfit.

I just don’t want to say yet because I haven’t dotted the line yet… But it’s done.” We wonder if they’ll be as schizophrenically colorful as Weezy’s eccentric get ups? [Billboard]
