Nicki Minaj: “Oh, we ain’t never gon’ be back friends”: Apple Music’s Queen Radio showcased a showdown which Nicki Minaj fans did not expect to see following the rapper sat down along with her former director, Large Fendi. For decades the couple were at oddsand back at 2014 Fendi, the individual credited for detecting Nicki, even emerged on Power 105.1’s The Breakfast Club with Lil Kim at which both discussed their problems together with the Pink Printing rapper.

About Queen Radio, Nicki dealt with the subject of bias as she hashed her out with her former confidant. “I make a listing in my mind of all of the excellent things about this individual and what they brought to my life and most of the undesirable things. And when the good outweighed the bad, I occasionally give them a second chance at being in my entire life. But the majority of the instances I do not let people back into my own life, but I forgive them.”

“People get the wrong idea. When I say I’m a very forgiving person, they think I mean we gon’ be back friends,” she added. “Oh, we ain’t never gon’ be back friends. You know what I mean? It’s like that with me, normally. Normally. It’s not that I’m walking around angry at them. I never be, like, mad. I be like, ‘Okay, next.’ But with this person for many, many years I was very, very angry. I just felt betrayed on so many levels and I’m sure he felt that way as well, but, here it is.”

Nicki and Fendi worked together prior to the rapper moving on to be managed by Deb Antney, a person who Fendi has stated “brainwashed” Nicki. In her chat with Fendi she admitted that he helped her move her career forward but stated, “The mistake you made was that you thought I was some brainless ho that you was going to tell what to do,” adding, “The last straw was when you put me on a DVD and the caption said ‘Super P*ssy.'” The pair couldn’t fully agree on what led to their fallout, but they did their best talk things out.

John Legend says he hasn’t reconciled with Kanye West since Donald Trump fallout in 2018

John Legend and Kanye West

John Legend has revealed that he still hasn’t reconciled with Kanye West since the pair had a disagreement over Donald Trump in 2018.

Speaking in a new interview, the ‘All Of Me’ singer-songwriter discussed the status of his friendship with West, saying he wouldn’t consider them close, but insisted their fading friendship is “just part of the natural cycle of life.”

The former friends fell out two years ago over tweets West made in which he publicly declared his support for the controversial US president, which prompted Legend to send some text messages to him to plead that he was too powerful and influential to support Trump and asked him to reconsider.

Legend later said he was “disappointed” in West for his vocal support of Trump, and while he wasn’t going to “disown” him, he did claim they were “never the closest of friends.”

Now, Legend has said he doesn’t think that he and West are “less friends because of the Trump thing,” he just thinks they’re in “different places.”

“I don’t think we’re less friends because of the Trump thing. I just think we’re doing our own thing,” Legend told The Times. “He’s up in Wyoming [on the $14 million ranch West bought as a family home in September last year]. I’m here in LA. We’ve both got growing families and I no longer have a formal business relationship with him as an artist, so I think it’s just part of the natural cycle of life.”

Revisiting their fallout over Trump, Legend said that he and West still disagree on the matter, adding: “But what I’ve always said is, we never talked about politics before. It was never a part of our interaction. Our interaction was almost always about creativity and music.

“He’s also in a different place musically. He’s doing gospel music. That’s what he’s focused on right now, designing his clothes, so we’re in different places.”

Elsewhere in the interview, he was asked whether he would be open to attending one of West’s Sunday Service events once the lockdown is over.

“I would like to go,” he said, “and I felt like I probably would end up going, but it just never happened, and now he’s up in Wyoming.”

Meanwhile, a cinematographer has claimed that Kanye West’s new album is called ‘God’s Country’ and new music could be dropping soon.

Arthur Jafa, who has worked on music videos for Solange and Devendra Banhart, as well as films including Crooklyn, said he had been working with the rapper on a new music video.

Rivers Cuomo has shared a cover of ‘I Don’t Know How To Love Him’ from the musical Jesus Christ Superstar – watch it below.

The Weezer frontman shared the rendition on Twitter ahead of this week’s episode of his Islands In The Stream sessions. It comes after his recent covers of Green Day’s ‘Good Riddance’ and Nirvana’s ‘Heart-Shaped Box’.

‘I Don’t Know How to Love Him’ was originally written by Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice in 1970 for Jesus Christ Superstar. It originally featured Yvonne Elliman’s Mary Magdalene singing the song.

Sharing the cover on Twitter, Cuomo wrote: “Here’s my cover of ‘I Don’t Know How To Love Him’ from last week’s Island In The Zoom. Tune in tonight at 6:25 PST for another episode, featuring guest star.”

Watch Cuomo’s rendition of ‘I Don’t Know How To Love Him’ below:

Earlier this month, Weezer postponed the release of their forthcoming album ‘Van Weezer’ indefinitely due to the coronavirus pandemic. It was originally set to be released last week. Speaking about the forthcoming album with Beats 1’s Zane Lowe last year, Cuomo said it was “all just guitars”.

So far, they’ve shared three of its singles: ‘End of the Game’, ‘Hero’, ‘Blue Dream’. The last of those was debuted on an episode of The Simpsons.

Meanwhile, Green Day, Fall Out Boy, and Weezer have officially postponed the North American leg of their joint Hella Mega Tour due to coronavirus.

It comes after they were forced to cancel the inaugural European leg, which was set to take place in June.

Fleetwood Mac’s Neil Finn, Stevie Nicks and Christine McVie share new song to benefit Auckland’s homeless

Fleetwood Mac‘s Neil Finn has recruited bandmates Stevie Nicks and Christine McVie for a new charity single – listen to ‘Find Your Way Back Home’ below.

Proceeds from the new single are going to the Auckland City Mission, which helps the New Zealand city’s homeless population.

The song was written by Finn about the city’s homeless population after he was inspired by a personal encounter he had at the Mission.

“I live in a pretty fortunate situation and I move in circles that are not in daily contact with homeless people,” he told The New Zealand Herald. “So it’s good to be able to find a pathway in your head to relate to some degree.”

Finn continued: “I haven’t felt compelled to go down that path in terms of speaking out. But in terms of trying to do some kindly acts as you strike situations, I think that’s compulsive and we should all be trying to do that.”

Finn, a member of Crowded House, joined Fleetwood Mac in 2018 after Lindsey Buckingham left the band.

Last year, founding Fleetwood Mac member Mick Fleetwood said the band would never reunite with Buckingham.

“Fleetwood Mac is a strange creature,” he said. “We’re very, very committed to Neil and Mike [Campbell of Tom Petty And The Heartbreakers], and that passed away a time ago, when Lindsey left. And it’s not a point of conversation, so I have to say no.”

He added: “It’s a full drama of Fleetwood Mac, no doubt. His legacy is alive and well, and as it should be. A major, major part that will never be taken away, and never be down-spoken by any of us. Neil and Mike have tremendous respect for Lindsey.”
