After quitting Twitter late last month due to “hatred and pettiness,” Iggy Azalea may have to quit watching TV as well. ESPN SportsCenter anchorman Robert Flores opened up the monthly segment What Did We Learn?, with mention of Laker guard Nick Young’s recent near-death encounter with a dolphin. In a completely unexpected turn, Flores proceeds to send a shot in the direction of the Aussie rapper who just so happens to be Young’s girlfriend.
Between beefing with Papa Johns, and announcing her exodus from Twitter. Iggy Aazalea found time to play a ride-or-die chick, in her new video for “Trouble.” The video features Oscar winner Jennifer Hudson, as a no-nonsense cop in constant pursuit of Iggy’s trouble making boyfriend.
J. Cole announces “Forest Hills Drive Tour,” Death Cab For Cutie premiere new track “No Room In Frame,” Starbucks will stop selling CDs for good and more on Last Lap.
Taylor Swift and Kanye West might have a collaboration in store, CHVRCHES covers Justin Timberlake’s “Cry Me A River,” Big Sean drops another track off of Dark Sky Paradise, and more on First Dibs.
We all know Iggy Azalea is in the “muder bidness,” but the latest target of her sharp tongue knocked us sideways. The rapper went off on the pizza chain Papa John’s yesterday, presumably after ordering food for her Grammy loss pity party.

However, it’s not just shiny gold statues that make Smith’s life pretty damn awesome. Read more…
You heard that Iggy? That was the collective exhale all of hip-hop just took when you didn’t walk away with rap album of the year. The Grammys actually got it right by giving Eminem the award, it was a better hip-hop album than The New Classic overall and the hip-hop community as a whole would unanimously agree. I imagine you were disappointed by the outcome but don’t be because there was a bright side to all of this.
