Kanye West would do anything for his Real Friends… and that includes skipping out on the biggest award show in music!

The rapper has made no secret of his support of Frank Ocean, and is, like most, a huge fan of his new album.

But after learning neither of Ocean's 2016 albums, Blonde nor Endless, will be eligible for consideration for the year's Grammy awards, Yeezy is pissed!

And since Mr. West knows all too well that the Grammys have a history of bending the rules for other artists, he won't bother showing up to the ceremony if his friend and collaborator doesn't get the same treatment.

At the Oakland stop on his Saint Pablo tour, Ye addressed the crowd on the inner workings of the Recording Academy, and how they allegedly made exceptions for their eligibility rules — like Lady GaGa's 2010 Grammy performance.

Entering one of his now-expected stage rants, Kim Kardashian West's husband said:

Even though Lip Sync Battle's live episode helped tide us over until its season 3 premiere, we couldn't be more thrilled the silly musical show is coming back on Wednesday — and bringing Sir Ben Kingsley too!

The British thespian is appearing on the LL Cool J and Chrissy Teigen-hosted show, where he'll face off against Star Trek star John Cho this week.

And Ben appears to be having a BLAST while getting his Elton John on!

We don't know what John will be up to, though it's probably a bit country as he's in cowboy gear, but Kingsley decided to perform Elton's classic hit Rocket Man with QUITE the costume — and we couldn't love it more!

Ch-ch-check out Sir Ben's AH-Mazing Sir Elton performance (below) and let us know if you think Cho can top Rocket Man!

Disney Is Remaking The Lion King! See The LONG List Of Cartoon Classics Lined Up For Live Action Reboots HERE!

Disney is diving back into its vault for yet ANOTHER live action reboot!

Though this time it'll only kinda be live action — as it's being helmed by director Jon Favreau, who already killed it with believable CG animals in 2015's The Jungle Book.

According to the announcement, the Lion King remake "will include songs from the animated film." Not surprising at all, given the Elton John and Tim Rice-penned songs won Oscars and Grammys and even Tony Awards!

No release date has been set, but word is the film has been fast-tracked, so if you've ever wondered what a REAL lion would look like singing I Just Can't Wait To Be King, you won't have to wait TOO long.

And of course, you'll have plenty of other classic reboots to tide you over…

If at first you don't succeed, audition for The Voice again!

At least that's what worked for Nolan Neal, who didn't turn a single chair in Season 10… but absolutely BLEW AWAY the judges during his second blind audition on Tuesday night!

The rock singer managed to get Adam Levine, Blake Shelton, Alicia Keys, and Miley Cyrus all to hit their buttons shortly after he began belting out Elton John's Tiny Dancer with his smoky vocals.

After the performance, Nolan told Adam that he auditioned the previous season but wasn't picked — though the Maroon 5 frontman told him if he re-auditioned with a different song he would "win the show" (as long as he picked Adam as a coach, obvi)!

But the rocker was far from the only auditioner to impress the coaches…

ICYMI: Over 200 Musicians — Including Jennifer Hudson, R. Kelly, & Weezer — Defend Pharrell Against 'Dangerous' Blurred Lines Verdict!

Last week, it was reported that Pharrell Williams and Robin Thicke clapped back hard at that Blurred Lines lawsuit — appealing the verdict that they committed copyright infringement against Marvin Gaye's Got to Give It Up.

Throughout the drawn out court battle, the singers expressed the sentiment that paying homage to an earlier era and making a song reminiscent of a sound shouldn't fall under copyright infringement.

And it looks like a TON of musicians agree — because 212 artists, composers, and producers have filed a brief with the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals in support of the bid by Williams, Thicke, and T.I. to overturn the decision.

Musicians from all corners of the industry have banded together to support the appeal, claiming that the Blurred Lines creators deserve victory on grounds that the court's ruling will set a precedent that will "stifle creativity" and "impede the creative process."

Among those who threw their names in the ring are the members of Train, Linkin Park, Earth, Wind & Fire, The Black Crowes, Fall Out Boy, as well as Weezer's Rivers Cuomo, Hall & Oates' John Oates, R. Kelly, Hans Zimmer, Jennifer Hudson, Jean Baptiste, Evan Bogart and Brian Burton (Danger Mouse).

The artist's brief, penned by entertainment attorney Ed McPherson, states:

We could legit listen to her speak for DAYS!

Britney Spears has been a global superstar for over two decades, and she spilled the tea on the music industry like NEVER BEFORE in a new BBC Radio 1 interview!

This might be the most beautiful one yet!

It's been over three weeks now since the tragic shootings at Pulse nightclub in Orlando, Florida and thankfully the push for change and awareness isn't going away any time soon!

Over the past couple of weeks, celebs like Elton John, Sofia Vergara, and more helped to pay tribute to the victims through videos or performances, and now Britney Spears, Gwen Stefani, Jason Derulo, Meghan Trainor, and a whole lot more are letting their voices be heard!

In an emotional new song titled Hands, Spears, Stefani, Derulo, and Trainor join Pink, Jennifer Lopez, Ty Herndon, Adam Lambert, Kacey Musgraves, Imagine Dragons, and Mary J. Blige in order to pay tribute to the victims of the terrible shooting.

But the great cause goes beyond a tribute and awareness as all of the proceeds for the song, which was released by Interscope Records, will benefit the Equality Florida Pulse Victims Fund, GLAAD, and the LGBT Community Center of Central Florida!
