First Dibs: Good News And Bad News For Kelly Rowland Fans

Muse will perform at a premiere for one of the summer’s biggest movies, Katy Perry draws Chief Keef’s ire on Twitter, and Kendrick Lamar wants one of hip hop’s recent trends to end.

  • Naturally, we were glad to hear that Kelly Rowland will be judging the U.S. version of X Factor this fall. But signing on to that commitment means she’s postponing some of the shows on her upcoming tour with The-Dream. Why does there always have to be a catch? [Idolator]
  • World War Z’s London premiere will feature one of the hottest afterparties ever — a concert from Muse. The movie features the band’s music, so a post-premiere show was definitely the way to go. [Billboard]
  • After Katy Perry expressed disenchantment with his song “Hate Being Sober,” rapper Chief Keef hit back at her on Twitter with some pretty threatening posts. Perry promptly apologized, with the rapper retweeting the contrite messages. All’s well that ends well? [Vibe]
  • Kendrick Lamar isn’t feeling how rappers are popping Mollies into their lyrics. He thinks it’s a trend that’s gotten old and is actually a little disturbing. [MTV]
