Lupe Fiasco Says Atlantic Records Doesn’t Care About His Album — Say What!
Lupe Fiasco criticized his record label, Atlantic, recently, regarding the delay of his forthcoming album ‘Lasers.’ “I don’t think the label cares about an album,” Lupe said. “I don’t think n—as care. People just want their number-one record. They don’t care about the rest of the album. I was talking to an engineer the other day and he said, ‘These n—as don’t even care about mixing an album no more.’ They just want the first three songs. Three singles. They get them, one, two, three, they don’t care what’s on the rest of the album. I know this for sure. I’ve seen it.” Damn, homey. [MTV]
Amongst other things, Ke$ha is now a tattoo artist, and it’s getting her guys. “A friend of mine told me you can [create a tattoo] with pen ink and a safety pin, and I was like ‘That’s amazing. I could give tattoos at anywhere in the world at any hotel.’ I saw this hot dude recently and I gave him a tattoo sitting in the lobby of the hotel,” she said. “I was just like ‘Can I borrow a pen and a sewing kit?’ I think I got an admirer out of that one.” Gross.

Rock band Kings of Leon had to cut short a recent gig in St. Louis, due to falling pigeon excrement. The group’s drummer, Nathan Followill tweeted the following, “So sorry St. Louis. We had to bail, pigeons s–tting in [bassist] jareds mouth. Too unsanitary to continue.” He followed up with “Don’t take it out on Jared, it’s the f–king venues fault. You may enjoy being s–t on but we don’t.” Sure you don’t. [RiverfrontTimes]
