Jay Z & Beyoncé Are Knocked Off The Top Of Forbes' Richest Couples List By THESE TWO LOVEBIRDS! Can You Guess Who?

| Filed under: BeyonceInspirationJay ZTaylor SwiftCalvin Harris

Taylor and Calvin are the richest celebrity couple in the world.

Enjoy it while it lasts, Talvin!

Now that they're officially a couple, Taylor Swift and Calvin Harris can boast about landing on Forbes' annual World's Highest-Paid Celebrity Couples list with a combined income of $156 million earned in 2014.

They can also boast about dethroning Jay Z and Beyoncé as the richest couple in Hollywood, as Jay and Bey "only" made $110.5 million to land at #2 on the list.

That's cool and all, but we all know these lists change from year to year, and Swifty and her DJ lover can only reign atop it if they don't break up.

So there is that, but let's live in the moment and enjoy this very impressive achievement for what it's worth.

Fingers crossed they last forever, of course!

P.S. Miranda Lambert and Blake Shelton round out the top three with $58 million.

Say What?! Sean Hannity Says Rap Music Should Be Banned If The Confederate Flag Is!

| Filed under: PolitikBeyonceBarack Obama50 CentJay ZSean Hannity

The Confederate flag has long been seen as a symbol of racism … and Sean Hannity is saying rap music is, too!

The conservative talk show host said on his radio show Thursday that if the Confederate flag is getting taken down, rap and hip-hop should get taken off the airwaves.

His reasoning: artists like Jay Z and 50 Cent use the n-word in their lyrics, and that is a racist term.

Hannity calls out Jay Z's wife Beyonce, too, saying that her use of the word "bitch" is misogynistic. Listen to his rationale:

Um … okay!

Last time we checked, Hov's words didn't incite a civil war.

Hannity went so far to even take a dig at President Obama and his daughters:

"If it's OK for Obama's teenage daughters and people to go into these stores and buy music chock-full of the N-word, the B-word, well maybe we should consider banning that too. We're in the process of banning everything."

We think the free speech amendment that protects Hannity from expressing his views should apply to music artists too, right?!

Apple Announces Its All-In-One App With The Help Of Drake & The Weeknd!

| Filed under: Music MinutePharrellJay ZBusiness BlitzDrakeBastilleFKA twigsThe Weeknd

Apple revealed it's new music service!

Step aside, Spotify and Tidal! Apple's got big plans for their new music service!

The music giant announced its new app, Apple Music at the Apple Worldwide Developers Conference in San Francisco on Monday — and it has it ALL.

Literally!

The app's got streaming, radio, and downloading, but believe it or not, there's MORE! Apple Music will also include a feature called Connect, which incorporates a social media element, allowing artists to connect with their fans by posting content through their own profiles.

And who better to introduce the service's social side than Drake! The rapper presented how he started from the bottom — AKA the Internet — to develop a fanbase, which is why he thinks Connect is such a great addition!

We wonder if this endorsement from Drizzy means he's in for a Tidal wave of drama with Jay Z. Hmmmmmm.

[ Video: Watch Jay Get Upset At Tidal Haters! ]

But Wheelchair Jimmy isn't the only famous face showing support for the new app. The company said that Pharrell, Chris Cornell, Bastille, and Alabama Shakes all will have profiles on Connect.

Thought the announcement couldn't get more star-studded? Think again!

The Apple event also incorporated a performance by

Did Drake Back Out Of Tidal To Sign A Deal With Apple? Deets HERE!

| Filed under: Music MinuteJay ZBusiness BlitzDrake

Drake reportedly dropped a deal with Tidal, and then signed with Apple!

Does this mean we shouldn't expect any more Drake and Jay Z collaborations for a while?

According to reports, the Degrassi-star-turned-rapper was totally set to be one of the select few partners for Jay's (failing) music streaming service Tidal.

But, as it turns out, the Canadian allegedly backed out only days before the big launch event in March.

Awkward!

Jay Z Could Lose Beyoncé — On Tidal — If They Don't Pay Sony Records! Is The Struggling Service Headed For Stormy Seas?

More bad news for Tidal!

Jay Z's music venture has been sinking since its conception, but the streaming service might be in real trouble — because they could lose one of their main attractions!!

And by main attraction, we mean Beyoncé!

It has been reported that in exchange for the rights to stream certain artists, Tidal has been asked for huge advances from record label titans Sony and Warner!

[ Related: Why Is Jay Z Taking HEAT In The Black Community After Posting This Tidal Pic?! ]

According to sources, the streaming service finalized an agreement with Warner, but have yet to strike a deal with Sony.

This means if the streaming service doesn't pay up, they could lose cornerstone artist Queen Bey — who's Tidal-exclusive content has been a huge selling point for the service, not to mention she's Jay's wife!

Tidal claims they are financially sound, so coming to an agreement with Sony shouldn't be a problem.

However, if Blue Ivy's momma abandons ship for any reason, we think it'll be safe to say Tidal won't stay afloat.
