Kanye West Needs Church’s Permission For One Of His Tracks! Will He Get It In Time For Yeezus Release??

wenn20332763(1)

Kanye West and his peeps should’ve known that an album called Yeezus would come with its fair share of dramz!!

Apparently Kanye is an uberperfectionist and is driving Def Jam executives “crazy” with last min changes, additional tracks, and legal issues galore.

No wonder the album cover looked so slapped together!! ‘Ye has been dealing with other, more important musical matters (and probably will be up until the very last minute), so it looks like there was simply not a lot of time to spend on the album art this year.

Frank Ocean Lost In The Midst Of A Lawsuit! Producer Claims He Copied His Song!

frank ocean sued over song lost

Say it ain’t so!

After flying high at the Grammys and spending some quality time with his mom at Paris Fashion Week, Frank Ocean came home to some terrible news. He’s being sued!

We all love the hit Lost, but apparently songwriter Micah Otano is claiming that it was ripped off from his song Daylight! Now he’s hoping to claim royalties and get credit for helping produce the single.

Hopefully this isn’t true, but it certainly doesn’t help that Micah has worked directly with channel ORANGE producer Malaya, who he claims stole the song from him.

It’s sad to see this happen just when things were going so well for Frank, but we hope he can get this lawsuit sorted out soon so he can get back to working on his new album!

Uh-oh! The Twi-hards must be losing their minds over THIS!

You may be shocked to have seen this cover of People magazine, which features Taylor Lautner announcing that he's an "out" and "proud" gay man, but apparently, it's just one elaborate hoax, and the actor has made no such announcement!

Ch-ch-check it out (above)!

But if you were fooled, don't worry!

Apparently, Def Jam's Simmons thought it was legit, and even wrote via Twitter:
