No one was going to beat Justin Timberlake on the sales chart, but plenty tried. Here’s a look at this week’s Nielsen SoundScan breakdown:
Last week, music video director Benny Boom teased the world by insinuating that Nicki Minaj suffered a double nip slip in her new video for “High School.” While only Benny and the union crew members on set will ever know for sure whether that double nip slip actually happened or if it was just a tall tale concocted to get people excited for the video, we can confirm that after seeing the video today, Nicki does, in fact, look more beautiful than ever in it. Throughout the course of the video’s four minute and four second run time, Nicki Minaj manages to wear nine different outfits (!!!) — including one that can best be described as her birthday suit. Review them all below and be sure to vote on which one is your favorite!
One week ago today, Lil Wayne nearly kicked the bucket after sippin’ too much sizzurp (or was he poisoned?). TMZ erroneously reported that he was on his death bed and being read his last rites, but Weezy proved the naysayers wrong, emerging from his coma long enough to tweet “F**k TMZ.” However, over the course of the last week, he seems to have squashed his beef with Harvey Levin; he released an exclusive video this morning to TMZ proclaiming himself “good … a n***a more than good.”
Is Bret Michaels following in the footsteps of Magic Mike? And what did Justin Timberlake treat the audience to on his final night guesting on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon? This and more in this morning’s “While You Were Sleeping”.
UPDATE: The man himself has confirmed that rumors about his condition were grossly exaggerated and he’s “good.” Lil Wayne personally posted his gratitude for the fan support on his Twitter account.
The hip hop world stopped breathing for a moment after TMZ reported Lil Wayne was in critical condition due to more seizures and facing last rites upon arrival of his mother to Cedars-Sinai Hospital in L.A. Friday evening. Read more…
If Kanye gifts you with your first TV you should be forever grateful and never criticize anything he does. MTV’s Sway Calloway learned that lesson yesterday when Ye called Hot 97 to tell the world what he’d done for Sway. Read more…
