First Dibs: Is Kanye West Rapping On Yeezus About Not Wanting To Be A Dad?

Sure, Yeezus saves, but did Rick Rubin save Yeezus? Did someone leave Pixies? And what is German DJ and producer Zedd teasing about Lady Gaga’s ARTPOP?

  • One of the new songs off Kanye West’s Yeezus supposedly takes shots at the bleakness of fatherhood and complains that the narrator’s pregnant mistress couldn’t get an abortion. No word on whether it’s a cautionary tale, an autobiographical one, or both. [Hollywood Life]
  • Speaking of Yeezus…Rick Rubin is the executive producer on Kanye West’s Yeezus, but he might also be its savior. Rubin says that he came in at the 11th hour and helped Kanye finish all the raw material. [MTV News]
  • Bassist Kim Deal has left Pixies. Deal has yet to comment on her departure, but it may have something to do with her current reunion tour with her other band, The Breeders, as well as other side projects. []
  • German DJ and producer Zedd has spilled that he’s worked on a bunch of tracks on Lady Gaga’s upcoming album, ARTPOP, and that he’s excited for fans to hear the results. “I just really can’t imagine they would not like it, to just say it straight up.” [Rolling Stone]
