Oh, Meek Mill.

The rapper is a week into his 90 day house arrest, and he's already asking the judge for some changes.

ICYMI, Nicki Minaj's beau got in big trouble in November when he failed a drug test after violating his probation for a 2009 drug and gun conviction by attending the American Music Awards without permission. In addition to house arrest, he is also banned from rapping, performing, etc. while serving his sentence. He will only be allowed to participate in charity work for the community.

However, TMZ reports the 28-year-old's lawyers filed an appeal to change his sentence so that he is allowed to record jams.

According to the appeal filed by his attorney Joe Tacopina, Meek has a studio in his home and wants to be able to keep making and putting out music.

Considering he got off easy with this sentencing in the first place (AKA not spending time behind bars), we don't know what to think!

Do U think he should still be able to work while serving time, Perezcious readers?? SOUND OFF in the comments!

Meek Mill Gets Off Easy — Sentenced Up To 12 Months House Arrest

| Filed under: Legal MattersBusted!Nicki MinajAmerican Music Awards

Nicki Minaj and Meek Mill

Could be worse!

Meek Mill got in big trouble in November when he violated his probation for a 2009 drug and gun conviction by attending the American Music Awards without permission. And it certainly didn't help things when he failed his urine test afterwards…

Despite a heartfelt testimony from his girlfriend Nicki Minaj, the Philadelphia judge still ruled the instance a violation and determined the 28-year-old's punishment on Friday.

The All Eyes On You rapper was sentenced 6 to 12 months house arrest — which might seem bad, but it's a lot better than serving time in county jail. He will do a minimum of 90 days and then the judge will reevaluate.

He is due to turn himself in on March 1st.

Meek is also banned from working (rapping, performing, etc) while serving his sentence. He will only be allowed to participate in charity work for the community.

Yes… that means no more mixtapes dissing Drake for a while!!

Sorry, we just got really excited there.

Sounds like a lot of Netflix and chilling is gonna be going down!

The audience members at Madonna's Taipei, Taiwan concert are the envy of fans everywhere!

That's because on Thursday night's Rebel Heart concert, Madge did the unthinkable and performed her 1994 hit Take a Bow — for the first time EVER in concert!

This mid-tempo pop ballad from her Bedtime Stories was a huge success when it was released, becoming her eleventh No. 1 single on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.

Since the song isn't the easiest to sing live, the Queen of Pop has only performed it a handful of times — her last public performance was at the 1995 American Music Awards with Babyface.

After Thursday's performance, the singer admitted she "hit a few bad notes, but it felt good to sing it." AH-Mazing!

Hopefully, this means we won't have to wait another two decades for Madge to perform the track again! LOLz!

Ch-ch-check out the historic performance (below)!!!

Ellen DeGeneres Grills Charlie Puth About Making Out With His 'Friend' Meghan Trainor! Watch Him Try To Explain Their Onstage Lip Lock!

Charlie Puth is one of the biggest breakout artists of 2015!

If it wasn't the singer's featured vocals on Wiz Khalifa's smash hit See You Again that sealed the deal, it was Charlie's steamy American Music Awards performance with Meghan Trainor — which concluded with the two sucking face on stage!

Despite the two enjoying a nice makeout sesh after performing their duet Marvin Gaye back in November, Puth insisted on the Ellen DeGeneres Show that he and the All About That Bass singer are "best friends"!

On Wednesday's show, the 24-year-old revealed he and Trainor agreed to swap spit at the end of the performance as "a visual aesthetic" for what the song means — a.k.a. getting it on!

That seems like just a fancy excuse for Puth to lock lips with M.Train — and we're totally okay with that!

Ch-ch-check out the clip (below) to hear how the singer ignored Ellen's phone calls when she first discovered him as an artist!

Selena is moving on!

While Justin Bieber is getting cozy in Anguilla with Hailey Baldwin, Selena Gomez's interview with Rolling Stone partially about her ex was released.

And well, she's shutting down any hope for any Jelena shippers still out there.

When asked about the moment behind the famous video of the Biebs serenading her before the American Music Awards, Selly swiftly shut down the reporter:

"Well, I am sorry, first of all. And honestly, what I would love to be printed is that I am so beyond done with talking about that, and him."

In case you don't remember, Justin was caught singing his heart out to the songstress during a pretty public dinner back in November.

So it sounds like she's totally moved on!
