Last Lap: What Does Kendrick Lamar Have Planned For 2014?

Ariana Grande strikes a curious pose with Chris Brown, Rick Rubin reaches a higher level, and Beyonce and Jay Z show us yet again while their lives are way more awesome than ours.

  • Even though he didn’t snag the Grammy for Best Rap Album (which Macklemore is soooo sorry about), that doesn’t mean Kendrick Lamar is retreating from the game. According to a report, the Compton rapper is dropping a new LP this upcoming fall, which we hope gives him another shot at winning that coveted golden gramophone. [Huffington Post]
  • Ariana Grande posted a very interesting pic on Instagram, showing her getting quite cozy with Chris Brown. Ok, it looks like they’re just rehearsing choreography, but that’s quite a position they’re in. [The Hollywood Gossip]
  • Rick Rubin’s formidable production skills have carried him through 30 years in the game, but he credits something else for his long-term success. In a new interview, the famed producer opens up about his meditation practice and how it keeps him grounded in a topsy-turvy industry. [Rolling Stone]
  • Mr. and Mrs. Carter can’t stop flaunting their awesome lives in front of our faces. But to be honest, to we want to stop looking? Beyonce and Jay Z posted photos of their latest vacation, and they are glorious. [MTV News]
