Where will “Yeezus” rise next? Why is Liam Gallagher not impressed with Daft Punk? And why does Mariah Carey and Miguel‘s new song, “#Beautiful,” have a hashtag?

  • Will Smith and his son, Jaden Smith, were promoting their new film, After Earth, on Britain’s The Graham Norton Show, when Will treated everyone by resurrecting “The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air” theme song. Jaden became his hype man, DJ Jazzy Jeff returned to the turntables and then the heavens opened and Alfonso Ribeiro came out and danced “the Carlton.”
  • Kanye West debuted his song, “New Slaves,” by projecting images on buildings all over the world last week and he’s not finished with the unique promotion style. Keep your eyes peeled on walls in places such as Amsterdam, Milan, Tucson and Philadelphia¬†for more Yeezus promos this weekend. [Rolling Stone]
  • Turns out not everyone is a fan of Daft Punk’s “Get Lucky.” Former Oasis frontman, Liam Gallagher, scoffed that he could have written the song in a “f@#king hour.” [NME.com]
  • MTV News recently got a chance to catch up with Miguel, who explained that the reason his new duet with Mariah Carey, “#Beautiful,” starts with a hashtag has less to do with social media and more to do with bleeping out an expletive. [MTV News]
