Last Lap: What’s Kanye West’s Most Noteworthy Missed Opportunity?

LL Cool J may have inadvertently started a rap beef, Coldplay emerges out of nowhere, and we wonder if Lea Michele is channeling grief on her upcoming album.

  • Kanye West once told us that he has no regrets, but he admitted that there is something about his life that he wishes he could change. The rapper said that he wished his late mother could’ve known his infant daughter, and if that doesn’t melt your heart, we don’t know what will. [Vibe]
  • And speaking of Kanye West, LL Cool J jokingly offered some thoughts on Yeezy’s much-publicized rants. LL is a fan of Ye, but said the Chicago star needs to “stop complaining.” Uh oh, someone just stepped into the fray! [E!]
  • We haven’t heard a ton of music from Coldplay lately, but that could be about to change. The British band randomly posted a video for a track called “Midnight” online, but gave little details about whether there’s a new album in the works. Eh, they don’t need to rush — we’re still absorbing the trippy visuals in the new clip! [Rolling Stone]
  • Lea Michele’s boyfriend and Glee co-star Cory Monteith died while she was still recording her debut album. Did she draw on that heartache for the LP? [MTV News]
