Last Lap: Drake Finally Responds To Amanda Bynes’ Request To “Murder Her Vagina”

Simon Cowell is reportedly setting up his child’s mother in a Beverly Hills mansion, Katy Perry unveils her single’s artwork, and Jay Z briefly reunites with Damon Dash.

  • Drake is on the cover of the 150th issue of XXL, and in the mag’s profile, he finally responds to Amanda Bynes’ bizarre series of tweets about him this year. “I don’t even know who that is doing that or what that’s about,” he explains to Thomas Golianopoulos. “If that is her, I guess it’s a little weird and disturbing. It’s obviously a behavioral pattern that is way bigger than me. Whoever is behind it, whether it’s her or somebody else, they know people are paying attention so they keep it going.” Props for taking the high road, Drizzy. [XXL via Vulture]
  • Frank Ocean has been tapped to appear on “Wildfire,” one of the tracks from John Mayer’s forthcoming LP. The two have collaborated before, and they could obviously feel that fans wanted more. [Pitchfork]
  • Music mogul Simon Cowell is apparently letting his pregnant lover raise their child in one of his mansions in California. Well, at least he’s providing for the family. [Perez Hilton]
  • With Katy Perry’s “Roar” being released in a few days, the singer offered a glimpse of the artwork as she urged fans to pre-order the single. Why can’t we resist it when Katy teases us? [Just Jared]
  • During a party for a mutual friend, Jay Z and his Roc-a-Fella Records co-founder Dame Dash were snapped in a pic. The two had a public falling out years ago, but have both recently expressed respect for one another. C’mon guys, can we get at least one more record out of you two? [MTV]
