How did One Direction‘s Liam Payne get himself caught up in the Duck Dynasty controversy last night? Did Madonna apologize for using the N word? Did Rixton enjoy dressing up like famous pop stars in their music video for “Make Out?”

  • Macklemore attended Justin Timberlake‘s concert in Seattle on Friday night and tried to sneak a selfie with JT from the crowd. However, he was promptly shooed away by a security guard who didn’t recognize him, but Timberlake gave the rapper a shout-out before the end of the show. [Rap-Up]
  • One Direction’s Liam Payne came under fire on twitter last night when fans spotted that he had tweeted at Duck Dynasty‘s Phil Robertson that he had “huge respect for…the family values you still all behold.” Fans immediately interpreted this to mean Payne agreed with Robertson’s recent homophobic statements, but Payne claimed on twitter that wasn’t the case.

  • Madonna has officially apologized for tagging a photo of her son, Rocco Ritchie, with the N word. The pop diva went on to say she is “not a racist” and that she “appreciate[s] that it’s a provocative word.” [Rolling Stone]
  • British band Rixton made waves last year when their music video for “Make Out” featured homages to famous music videos by Rihanna, Katy Perry and more. However, the band didn’t have quite so much fun making the video as the originals did. [MTV News]
