First Dibs: What’s The Latest Snafu To Delay Kanye West’s Tour?

Mick Jagger tries to clear up a story about Katy Perry, Lady Gaga is giving us one more tidbit before her album drops, and Rick Ross gets soulful on his upcoming LP.

  • After a central piece of set gear was damaged en route to Vancouver, Kanye West issued a statement that he’s postponing dates on his current tour. He’s apparently making sure he can bring the best live experience possible to fans. [AllHipHop]
  • Mick Jagger claims that he never hit on Katy Perry, following the pop star’s anecdote that the legendary rock star made a pass at her when she was 18. We wonder who’s telling the truth. [NME]
  • The final single in the run-up to Lady Gaga’s ARTPOP will be “Dope.” We figure it also sounds dope, but we won’t know for sure until the singer releases the track on November 4. Until then, the Mother Monster has provided some interesting cover art for the single. [The Hollywood Gossip]
  • Rick Ross knows just who to call when he needs inspiration for how to slow things down on a track. The rapper says he reached out to soul legend Bobby Womack for his next album. [MTV News]
