Shortly after the 2015 Billboard Awards wrapped on Sunday, rumors swirled that rap magnate Jay Z and his Burlesque singer wife Beyonce paid “tens of thousands” of dollars in bail money for misguided youths who were arrested during the Baltimore uprisings last month.
Friend of the blog, Atlanta superstar Janelle Monáe performed her hit song “Yoga” on the Jimmy Kimmel Live on Monday.
It’s official: R&B singer Ciara‘s new album, Jackie, is a flop. According to industry estimates, Jackie is expected to move about 22,000 units in 1st week sales (that includes online streaming). Those are pretty dismal numbers when you think about how far Ciara has risen since her “Goodies” days.
Pop icon Prince Rogers Nelson will perform his new, unreleased single “Baltimore” in Baltimore at a tribute concert for Freddie Gray, the 25-year-old man who died of a spinal injury while in police custody on April 19.

Openly gay singer Frank Ocean is making a comeback by releasing a new album entitled Boys Don’t Cry.
Ocean announced his new album on his website Frankocean.com along with the caption, “I got two versions. I got twooo versions…”
Remember that “Jealous” duet featuring Beyonce and Chris Brown that leaked online this week?
Well, as it turns out, Beyonce didn’t authorize the remix with or without Brown. And furthermore, she didn’t even know about it.
