We don't think this is a fight you want to start, Elisabeth.

Not the best way to take a compliment.
Azealia Banks is no stranger to controversy, but something she isn't used to is playing a full show in Australia!
Prior to her Splendour in the Grass Music & Arts Festival concert on Monday, Azealia had actually never finished a complete performance in the land down under.
Well, Australian radio personality Browny took to Twitter right after her set to thank the 24-year-old rapper for playing the whole thing through, which Azaelia clearly took as a dig!
Ch-ch-check out their uncomfortable back and forth (below)!!!
This is HOT!!
The Weeknd dropped his much-anticipated music video for I Can't Feel My Face on Tuesday, releasing it exclusively on Apple Music Connect.
The video is the visual counterpart to one of the hottest songs of the summer — and one of four songs off the Beauty Behind the Madness album that's already been certified platinum, and the album hasn't even dropped yet!
While the album is still one of the most anticipated ones of 2015, you're going to have to wait just a little while longer — but at least you've now got the video to tide you over!
Ch-ch-check out the hot music video for I Can't Feel My Face (below):
What a good daughter.
On Tuesday, it was revealed that Janet Jackson will put production of her Unbreakable world tour on hold to be by Joe Jackson's beside as he recovers from a stroke. Jackson sadly suffered the medical emergency in Brazil while celebrating his 87th birthday.
According to a source, the 49-year-old will stay with Joe until he stabilizes. Considering Janet's tour kicks off August 31, the singer has at least a month to help her father during this harrowing time.
We hope JJ gets back on his feet sooner than later so the legend can get back to doing what she does best — performing!
Feel better, Joe!

With a lot of success comes a lot of pressure.
And after Macklemore had such an incredible year in 2014, he admitted he fell off the wagon a little bit. The recovering addict and his musical partner, Ryan Lewis, had won several awards and their songs were dominating the charts.
But, the 32-year-old explained that the attention and new, crazy lifestyle caused him to recently relapse and get back into drugs, specifically marijuana and pills:
"I held it together for a while. But, eventually, I stopped going to my 12-step meetings. I was burnt out. I was super-stressed. We weren't sleeping — doing a show every day, zigzagging all over the country. In terms of the media I was getting put into a box that I never saw for myself. The pressure and the fame — everything. All the clichés, man — like not being able to walk around, having no privacy, and from this TV appearance to this TV appearance, and the criticism, and the lack of connection, and the lack of meetings — all of that put into one pie was just…I just wanted to escape."
But one day, his fiancée, Tricia Davis, found some drugs he had been hiding, which forced him to press pause on his using habits, at least for a little while. But unfortunately, he explained, it didn't last very long:
"I sat in a car, a hot boxed car — I thought that was a good idea — and got high. And then the next day it was like, ‘What's up with the weed?' And once I'm there, it's over."
As much as he wanted to stop, the rapper revealed he just couldn't convince himself to quit:
"You know, like, Monday, I'ma stop…. OK. Tuesday, I'ma stop…. OK, f—k it, I might as well go on to the weekend. Sunday, I'm done. But after this bag of weed…"
It even began to invade his professional life:
Birdman and Lil Wayne may not be on the best terms right now — or even on good terms — but the rapper's mentor says he still cares about his frenemy.
The 46-year-old opened up about their feud, explaining that he's confused as to why it even started in the first place, saying:
"You never thought Wayne would be saying nothing negative about me in no lifetime. I never thought that could ever happen — for that man to open his mouth and say something negative about me. I love my son. He mean the world to me. For that man to say something negative about me, that affected my life."
When it came out that Weezy was suing Birdman because he delayed the released of his newest album, Tha Carter V — and therefore allegedly violated their contract — we figured maybe it would just be a brief legal battle and the two would return to being fierce friends when it was all said and done.
Instead, Wayne made it pretty clear that he also wanted out of their label, Cash Money, and things sort of spiraled from there.
Wow! Mike Posner has really evolved as an artist!
The former dance music king has traded in all the digital equipment and booming beats for an acoustic guitar, and we LOVE it! He's being honest and true to himself, and you can tell by how strong and deep his new music is.
Posner's EP The Truth came out last month, and we loved his work then, too!
Now, he's debuting a lyric video for Be As You Are, another track on his EP. We can't get enough!!!
Ch-ch-check out that music video (below)! We know you'll love it!
This would have been AH-mazing!
Back in April, the city of Baltimore was experiencing protest in the wake of Freddie Gray's death at the hands of city police officers.
While many celebrities showed their support through social media, it's been reported that Rihanna wanted to hold a free concert for the city of Baltimore — and even walk with protesters!
Emails between RiRi's rep and the Baltimore police indicate that the 27-year-old tried to get extra police security at the request of the governor's office.
But a separate email chain between the former police commissioner and the mayor's rep suggest that the songstress's request was ultimately denied because "police are claiming they have no permit so it will not be allowed."
While the BBHMM singer's concert didn't get approved, Prince performed a Rally 4 Peace benefit show in Baltimore in early May.
We can only imagine if RiRi joined forces with Prince on stage, it would have been a concert of epic proportions!
