Beyoncé kicks off Formation Tour with 37-song setlist, including Purple Rain cover
Apr 27, 2016 11:15pm | Cosequence Of Sound

Beyoncé launched her highly anticipated Formation World Tour at Miami’s Marlins Park on Wednesday. Coming just days after the unexpected release of new album Lemonade, the 37-song (!) setlist leaned heavily on new material, featuring tracks like “Hold Up”, “Freedom”, “Sorry”, “Don’t Hurt Yourself”, “All Night”, “Daddy Lessons”, and “Formation”.

Elsewhere in the set, Queen Bey paid tribute to Prince with a cover of “Purple Rain”; she mashed up “Drunk in Love” with Kendrick Lamar’s “Swimming Pools”; and she performed the 2014 remix of “Crazy In Love” featuring elements of Destiny’s Child’s “Bootylicious”.

And while Lemonade listeners may not be too fond of Jay Z at the moment, that didn’t stop Bey from dedicating her closing performance of “Halo” to her husband. “I want to dedicate this song to my beautiful husband. I love you so much,” she reportedly said, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Check out a compilation of fan-shot footage from the concert above, and clips of her “Purple Rain” cover below. The full setlist follows.

Kanye West decided to make Aziz Ansari and Eric Wareheims ridiculous Famous video the songs official video
Apr 27, 2016 8:03pm | Cosequence Of Sound

Earlier this month, Aziz Ansari and Eric Wareheim took it upon themselves to create their own music video for Kanye Wests The Life of Pablo track “Famous”. The clip followed the two comedians as they filmed a new season of Netflix series Master of None in Italy, ridiculous shenanigans and all.

The Internet quickly embraced the wacky visual, and now it appears Kanye has, too. According to a representative for JASH, a comedy collective featuring Wareheim, Yeezy himself has adopted it as **the** official clip for “Famous”.

“Eric [Wareheim] uploaded it on his own YouTube channel with the help of JASH, a comedy collective that he helped found, when Kanye agreed to have it be the official music video for the song,” explained the rep.

Revisit “Famous” above, and here’s hoping Ansari and Wareheim are already brainstorming video ideas for the rest of The Life of Pablo.



Prince reportedly had a long-standing addiction to Percocet
Apr 27, 2016 7:23pm | Fact Magazine

The singer made at least four trips to the pharmacy in the days leading up to his death.

In the final years of his life, Prince developed a severe addiction to the drug Percocet, TMZ reports.

The publication, who broke the news of the singer’s death last week, cite multiple sources connected with Prince’s family who say the singer became addicted after being prescribed the painkiller in 2009 when he was suffering from hip problems. Prince underwent hip surgery in 2010, but was allegedly already using the drug regularly.

Percocet has an infamously high risk for dependence and can be extremely deadly when taken in high doses or mixed with alcohol.

Rumors have circulated that the emergency plane landing and hospital trip the week before the singer’s death was the result of a Percocet overdose. TMZ says the FBI is currently investigating who wrote Prince’s prescriptions as well as who filled them. He was seen making multiple trips to the pharmacy in his final days.

Earlier today, the singer’s lawyer acknowledged Prince was on pain medication, but dismissed any speculation about addiction.

People use medication. The question is, are you on meds in a dangerous way? he said.

Beyoncé is now selling Boycott Beyoncé shirts
Apr 27, 2016 5:54pm | Fact Magazine

The pop singer turns controversy into merch sales.

Beyoncé’s Formation Tour begins today and the singer has responded to protests with a T-shirt that simply says Boycott Beyoncé.

Miami, where the tour kicks off, was a hotbed of controversy after police unions threatened to boycott the singers show in response to the perceived anti-police message of her Super Bowl halftime performance. The City of Miami Police Department are, in fact, working the concert tonight and probably feel a little trolled by Beyoncé.

Take a look at the merch below.

Apr 27, 2016 5:44pm | Brooklyn Vegan

The Muffs have been back in action for a few years now, having released the very good Whoop Dee Doo in 2014 on Burger/Cherry Red (their first album since 2004).

The reissue comes with seven bonus tracks, including two UK b-sides and five previously unissued demos, and it'll be the first time the album is out on vinyl in over two decades (the first pressing is on baby blue vinyl, with black to follow)...

Keshas mother drops counterclaim suit against Dr. Luke
Apr 27, 2016 5:41pm | Fact Magazine

Dr. Luke dodges another suit in his legal battle with Kesha.

Keshas mother Pebe Sebert has dropped a countersuit against Dr. Luke after he sued her in Tennessee for defamation and tortious (wrongful) interference. Sebert countersued on the basis of “intentional and negligent infliction of emotional distress based on the alleged abuse directed at Kesha” and “misrepresentations and fraudulent inducement by asserting that Dr. Luke had promised that she would be involved in her daughter’s career including as a songwriter.”

According to The Hollywood Reporter, today Sebert has voluntarily dropped those claims. It comes at the same time as the news that Kesha is back in the studio working on solo material with Zedd on production duties.

Kesha’s case against Sony was thrown out by New York court earlier this month after an arduous battle out of her contract with the label. She had accused Dr. Luke of sexual and emotional abuse and was denied a preliminary injunction in February for her suit against him. The denial led to fan protests and support for the singer from her peers and colleagues.

Kesha is still waiting for the preliminary injunction to go up in the New York State appellate court. She and her mother will be deposed by Dr. Luke&#821...

Drake and Futures Summer Sixteen VIP packages come with an insane amount of swag
Apr 27, 2016 5:00pm | Cosequence Of Sound

As anyone whos attended multiple summer festivals can attest, sometimes its just not worth springing for the VIP package. This is definitively not the case with Drake and Futures upcoming Summer Sixteen tour, which offers one example of a VIP package being crazy enough to actually merit dropping a cool G. Tickets for the North American tour are on sale now and, as Pigeons and Planes points out, some of the top-level packages offer swag you never could have imagined you needed.

Lets start with Drakes primo 6 God Meet and Greet Package, which will set you back $1,000 for such goodies as a 6 God candle, a 6 God incense holder, a 6 God custom disposable camera, and a Summer Sixteen car freshener, bag, and floaty pen.” All of that comes in addition to a seat in the first five rows and a photo with Drizzy himself, making this perhaps the most essential (and essentially ridiculous) fan package ever assembled.

At just $500, Futures premium Meet & Greet Package might be an even better deal. Its not quite as absurd as what Drakes offering, but it does include a ticket in the first 15 rows, a personal photograph with Future, a specially designed Future World Tour shirt, custom Freebandz hat, custom Future socks, Freebandz bandana, limited edition Freebandz pin set, Official Freebandz Patch, and (most importantly) a Freebandz double cup. To which we can only say Hell yes.

Check out the full list of VIP packages here, and please send us photos of the ince...
