Avril Lavigne's latest single may be called Here's To Never Growing Up, but apparently, the Canadian songstress has spent the better part of the last few years doing just that…and it seems to be doing wonders for her personal life AND career!

In the June/July issue of Nylon magazine, she not only discusses what to expect from her soon-to-be-released fifth studio album, but her unplanned romance with fiance Chad Kroeger of Nickelback, past troubles over creative freedom with record labels, and her incredibly close friendship with former X Factor judge L.A. Reid!

Ch-ch-check out some HIGHlights …AFTER THE JUMP!!!

Lil Wayne's Apology Letter To Till Family Over Offensive Lyrics Gets SHOT Down!

Filed under: Icky Icky PooMusic Minute

lil wayne apology letter to emmett till family falls short

Lil Wayne is in a lil bit of trouble, but for once it has nothing to do with his health! It's about his music!

The Young Money rapper came under fire recently for some of his lyrics in a song called Karate Chop in which he compares the death of Emmett Till to a sexual act!

For those of you who can use a quick brush up on your history, Emmett was a 14 year-old African-American boy who was brutally murdered in Mississippi in 1955, and his highly publicized death was considered a pivotal breaking point for the Civil Rights Movement.

Needless to say, the Till family was NOT amused with the lyrics and Epic Records decided to pull the song from their website.

Well, Weezy got wind of the news and he wrote an apology letter, saying:

X Factor Season One Winner Melanie Amaro Dropped From Epic Records?

melanie amaro dropped epic records

Oh no! This makes us super sad!

X Factor’s season three auditions kicked off today in El Lay, but where has season one winner, Melanie Amaro, been??

Unfortunately, it looks as though Mel’s been dropped from Epic Records, though no official confirmation has been made.

The label previously tried to release three different singles — and even had her perform Long Distance on XF this season — but none of them gained any traction.

It also seems that her debut album, Truly, was supposed to drop last year but has since been given a release date of December 31st, 2013!

Not only that, but on Epic’s website, she is no longer listed on the artist roster page… and neither is her fellow XF season one alum, Astro, which can't be a good sign.

Season one’s Chris Rene and Marcus Canty, however, remain on the artist roster page, and so does season two’s girl group, Fifth Harmony.

We think it’s a total shame if Epic really did drop Melanie, seeing as she has SO much talent and such a remarkable voice! Unfortunately, it seems as though not enough support was put behind her in the long-run.

Perhaps they could've done some rebranding??

We wish Melanie the best of luck in the future, though, no matter what the outcome!

Lil' Wayne Offends The Masses! Compares American Hero's Death To WHAT?!

Whoa!

We've always known Lil' Wayne to be controversial, but he has taken it a bit too far this time!

The rapper was recently featured on Future's Karate Chop remix, which was all fine and dandy until we heard the rapper spew an offensive reference to African-American hero Emmett Till.

Lil's lyrics were so degrading that Epic Records CEO L.A. Reid apologized to the 1955 Jim Crow South victim's family himself and promised to remove all traces of the song from the internet.

Epic Records said in a formal apology:
