  • Kanye West blazed the stage at the 2014 Wireless Festival in the UK this weekend but not everything went according to plan. While performing tracks off of his latest album Yeezus, West decided to go on a 20 minute rant that drove fans to leave the festival early and even boo at the 37-year-old. A fan told MailOnline, “There was serious booing towards the end of the speech, as people got so fed up and just wanted to hear him perform.” [MailOnline]
  • Nick Cannon beat out Michael B. Jordan, Eddie Murphy, and Marlon Wayans for the role of a lifetime. Cannon has been chosen to play the late Richard Pryor in an upcoming biopic. The decision has been met with some criticism but Cannon is focused on “doing the work” for the part so when production starts, he’ll be ready. [The Source]
