Iggy Azalea has taken aim at rap veteran Snoop Dogg after he poked fun at her appearance with a mean post on Instagram.
The legendary "Drop It Like It's Hot" hitmaker took to his photo-sharing site on Sunday (12Oct14) and shared a meme of an albino woman with cornrows, which featured the words, "Iggy Azalea No Make Up". The post caught the attention of the Australian star and she let Snoop know she was hurt by his sense of humor by firing off a series of message on Twitter.
She wrote, "@snoopdogg why would you post such a mean pic on insta (Instagram) when you send your body guards to ask me for pictures every time we are at shows together...? "And everytime (sic) I've spoken to you, you've always been nice as hell. I'm disappointed you'd be such an a** for no reason." Snoop has yet to respond to the posts, but he has since taken down the offending image. Azalea's online reprimand comes days after she lashed out at a paparazzo and attempted to ram him with a shopping cart after he refused to leave her alone after trailing her all day. She later took to her Instagram page to defend her actions, insisting, "I don't hate paps, just the really aggressive ones... I only treated him the way he treated me all day. Fair is fair playboys and girls. peace out (sic)."
Prince thrilled fans at the online launch party for his new albums by hitting the stage with Kendrick Lamar. The pop superstar introduced Lamar for a rendition of rare track What's My Name as part of his Yahoo! Livestream Special to mark the release of Art Official Age and PlectrumElectrum.
Art Official Age is Prince's 34th album, while Plectrum Electrum is the first release from his new band, 3rd Eye Girl.
The live link-up preceded a question-and-answer session on Prince's new Facebook page - but that proved to be less than successful because the Purple Rain singer only addressed one of 4,000 messages from fans.
Nick Cannon has sparked rumours he is to portray comedy icon Richard Pryor in a new project after dropping a number of hints on Instagram.com.
The rapper/actor shared a picture of Pryor online on Friday (27Jun14) with the caption, "I'm feeling his spirit. I hope y'all (sic) ready for the next level in my career. #GameChanger #Pryor (sic)."
After showing off a retro hairstyle and beard at the BET Awards on Sunday night (29Jun14), fans began commenting on Cannon's new look, and a photo comparison to Pryor appeared to hit home. Cannon re-posted the shot with the caption "Now y'all (sic) get it!"
The America's Got Talent host continued to fuel the rumours on Monday night (30Jun14) by sharing a picture of Pryor smoking, and suggesting he is imitating the bad habit to get into character, writing, "Picking up smoking cigarettes for the next few months so forgive me if I smell like an ashtray. #KidsDontTryThis #CancerSticksSuck #AnythingForTheCraft #HopeIDontGetAddicted #LeftHandChainSmoking #ActorLife #NotAGame #Ncredible (sic)."
Cannon has not given any further details about the project. Director Lee Daniels has previously been attached to a potential biopic of the Brewster's Millions star, with Eddie Murphy and Michael B. Jordan rumoured to be in the running for the role.
Superstar Prince is reportedly set to make a surprise return to the stage at the Coachella music festival this weekend (11-13Apr14), six years after headlining the California event. A representative for the Purple Rain icon's female backing band, 3rd Eyed Girl, took to Twitter.com early on Friday (11Apr14) to reveal that their weekly Paisley Park After Dark party at Prince's studio in Minnesota will be taking a break.
The post reads: "PAISLEY PARK AFTER DARK WILL RESUME NEXT FRIDAY/18 AND SATURDAY/19 AS PRINCE WILL B (sic) ATTENDING COACHELLA FESTIVAL THIS WEEKEND."
The news has sparked speculation Prince and 3rd Eyed Girl will stage a secret show while in the Indio desert.
He previously delighted fans as a headlining act in 2008.
If Prince does perform at Coachella, he won't be the only unexpected act - rapper Master P and his No Limit Records cohorts are confirmed to play at the festival on Sunday (13Apr14) after his rapper/actor son Romeo let slip the news on Thursday (10Apr14).
Outkast, Muse and Arcade Fire will headline the 2014 festivities, which take place over two weekends.
In WENN's 3rd feed on 04 April, 2014, we sent out an article headlined LEONA LEWIS CELEBRATES BIRTHDAY WITH CIRCUS-THEMED PARTY, in which we stated the event was attended by Simon Cowell and Louis Walsh. It has since emerged that neither Simon Cowell or Louis Walsh attended the event. Please amend this story accordingly on your website/database and accept our apologies for any inconvenience......

Music icon Prince surprised fans by playing an open soundcheck in London on Tuesday (04Feb14). Just days after hosting an impromptu listening party in New York City after the Super Bowl on Sunday (02Feb14), the Purple Rain hitmaker took to the stage at the Electric Ballroom venue around midnight, backed by his all-female band 3rd Eye Girl.
The singer performed songs from his upcoming album, Plectrum Electrum, but also sang his 1987 hit I Could Never Take the Place of Your Man for the second of his three encores.
After his hour-long set, he thanked revellers for their support, and hinted the gig wouldn't be the last at the Camden venue, saying, "You sound like 10 thousands (sic). We love each and every one of you... That was the soundcheck, come back tomorrow for more. We will be here tomorrow, a bit earlier and a lot funkier."
Earlier in the day, Prince held an informal press conference at the east London home of British soul singer Lianne La Havas, who he met last year (13) while she was on tour in the U.S.
The rocker and his band gathered in La Havas' living room and treated reporters to two acoustic tracks from the new record.
Prince told the group, "We're going to be here until people don't want to hear us anymore... We'll work our way up, if people like us, to bigger venues."
The last time Prince played multiple tour dates in the U.K. was in 2007, when he took the stage at the vast O2 Arena over 20 nights.
Pop superstar Prince pulled off another last-minute surprise treat for fans late Sunday night (02Feb14) following his appearance on TV comedy New Girl, which aired after the Super Bowl. Prince was in the crowd for the big game between the Denver Broncos and Seattle Seahawks and when the final whistle blew he headed for New York's Darby nightclub to host a listening party for his new album Plectrum Electrum.
But the Purple Rain singer didn't show up until 2.15am on Monday morning (03Feb14) after his new band 3rd Eye Girl and model pal Demaris Lewis welcomed fans and played new tracks.
Prince took over from house DJ Doug E. Fresh, and treated fans to a few dance moves before making his exit almost as suddenly as he had appeared.
In Justin Bieber's latest act of douchebaggery, the 19-year-old pop star has surpassed our expectations and earned a lifetime ban from an indoor skydiving facility.
E! News reports that the teen hearthrob is not allowed back inside Las Vegas Indoor Skydiving following his behavior on Sunday, June 16. After arriving just before closing, Justin agreed to post a photo of himself midflight to promote the center rather than pay the $1,600 fee for his group to fly. In typical Biebs fashion, he partied like it was 3012... and then never posted the picture. According to a source, Justin "actually faked like he was posting something, per the agreement, but never did." In fact, Biebs and Co. reportedly left without paying or tipping the staff at all. Hmm... interesting behavior for Forbes' 3rd Most Powerful Celebrity with a net worth of a filthy $110 million.
Even if the staff was willing to let him get away with his actions just this one time, Bieber and his security team were reportedly also "a disrespectful bunch," creating a huge mess in the bathroom. The pop icon, who cuddled up next to one less lonely girl at the facility was "very standoff-ish toward mostly everyone outside of his crew," says a source, who also adds that he was "very disconnected from reality."
Where's your compassion, J-Biebs? Or even your common sense? It looks to me like you lost a lot more than your balance after falling down the stairs Sunday morning...

After what felt like an eternity of Instagram posts of the same crumbled, purple hearts, Justin Bieber finally unveiled that he has a brand spankin' new single, "Heartbreaker," on the way. His final instagram of the evening on June 3rd boasted the caption, "Heartbreaker #Justinbiebersnewsingle."Now, before you assume that Bieber's targeting his notable ex-girlfriend and Spring Breakers star Selena Gomez with his new song, remind yourself to not be so close minded. Perhaps it is Bieber himself who is the heartbreaker.Here are a few possible suspects who we think might have felt personally victimized by the Biebs. 1. BIEBER'S PARTY GOERS
Bieber's friends and fans just wanted to have some fun partying it up at the teen idol's palace, but ever since Bieber threatened sue any of his guests for $5 million if they speak about his party, former party attendees are left with no Bieber mansion parties to attend. And holes in their hearts where those parties once resided.2. HIS HAMSTER
Bieber gave away Pac, the hamster, to a crazed fan at the Atlanta Jingle Ball in 2012. Although it seemed like a nice gesture towards his fan, did Bieber even pause think about the hamster's feelings ? I know if I were Bieber's hamster, I wouldn't ever want to leave his arms… I mean his cage.
3. THE FILIPINO PEOPLE
The Philippine government was offended by an Instagram photo Bieber posted following congressman and boxer Manny Pacquiao's crushing defeat in his December 2012 fight against Floyd Mayweather. The result: Bieber was banned from the Republic of Philippines. Now, the Filipino people are left without the chance to witness any Bieber world tours in their country… and that's what I call heartbreaking.
4. HIS NEIGHBORHOOD CHILDREN
Police showed up at Bieber's home in the City of Angels to address several calls about his speedy and unsafe driving. Apparently the Biebs was putting children in danger at the expense of his reckless driving. Not cool. In a heartbreaking twist, Bieber's young fans have become his victims.
5. MALLY THE MONKEY
Bieber's capuchin monkey, Mally, who was taken away at German customs on March 28th after Bieber was found lacking the proper import and vaccination papers for the monkey he once adored. Mally has felt abandoned by the Biebs ever since and remains heartbroken and all alone at some German zoo.
