That was quick!
We've received an update regarding accusations that H&M, and by extension its celebrity spokesmodels like Beyonce, turn a blind eye to the harsh working conditions faced by workers in the company's overseas factories.
The Swedish retailer released the following statement about the matter:

This is so tragic!!!
A garment factory in Bangladesh collapsed on Wednesday morning, killing almost 90 people, injuring hundreds of others, and many of the 2,000 people who reported to work that day are still trapped beneath the rubble!
The 8-story building, located in a suburb near the capital city of Dhaka, exhibited signs of damage on Tuesday when several cracks were discovered, but employees were still told to report to work on Wednesday.
This particular disaster comes only 5 months after

As if things couldn't get worse for Lil' Wayne…
He's now getting sued AGAIN for not paying royalties AGAIN.
Producer Shondrae Crawford, also known as Bangladesh was the mastermind behind Lil' Wayne's 2007 hit single A Milli and is now suing the rapper and his record company Cash Money for unpaid royalties, claiming that he's owed $500,000.
"Cash Money don't pay royalties. (Wayne's 2008 album) Tha Carter III (is) his biggest album probably because of A Milli. You have to sue these guys so that they pay up…All the money from album sales goes to Cash Money. I get checks from Sony for Beyonce, checks from different labels for different artists, it just comes to you. You don't have to call them, sue them and all that junk. This is what you're owed."
Wayne, who is currently behind bars for pleading guilty for gun possession, is already facing legal action from producer Jim Jonsin for his hit single Lollilop.
Looks like Lil' Wayne is stuck between a rock and a hard place!
