Drake has released his album, Scorpion, which consists of side a (12 songs) and side b (13 songs). The song features appearances from JAY-Z, Static Major, Ty Dolla $ign and Michael Jackson (he included an unreleased MJ song on the album).
On the record, Drake opened up about his paternity. He said on his song, “March 14,” “Yesterday morning was crazy / I had to come to terms with the fact that it’s not a maybe / That shit’s in stone, sealed and signed / She not my lover like Billie Jean, but the kid is mine / Sandy used to tell me all it takes was one time and all it took was one time.”
On his son’s rumoured mother, Sophie Brussaux, he raps, “Hopefully, by the time you hear this, me and your mother will have come around / Instead of always cuttin’ each other down / God willing, I got a good feeling / You got a good spirit / We’ll talk more when you hear this.”
On his Mariah Carey-sampled, “Emotionless,” he also references his son, saying, “I wasn’t hidin’ my kid from the world / I was hidin’ the world from my kid.”
Halsey’s body is no stranger to ink but now the singer is showing off her first face tattoo. Halsey already has artwork on her arms, shoulders, legs, neck and just about everywhere else you can imagine, but the she has never had any ink put on her face. That all changed when Halsey got a small, red Queen of Diamonds symbol tattooed near her ear. “Headed straight for the castle. @nal.tattoo thanks for my first (and only hopefully lol) face tattoo ♦️♦️♦️♦️,” she wrote on Instagram. Halsey’s latest tattoo joins a long list of ink the singer has on her body, including a sheet music tattoo on her left arm, the words “These violent delights have violent ends” on her right forearm and “XXX” on her right hand. It’s uncertain what the meaning behind Halsey’s latest tattoo is.

Justin Bieber missed his June 22 deposition in the ongoing egging case with his former Calabasas neighbor, Jeffrey Schwartz, who believes Justin skipped it because he chose to hang out with actress Hailey Baldwin instead.
Jeffrey believes Justin was with Hailey at the time, and he wants the judge to issue a bench warrant for Justin, according to new legal documents. He also asked the court to fine Justin $1,000 each day he refuses to come in for the deposition. Jeffrey also pointed out that Justin has already missed five other scheduled depositions in the past two years. This guy has been carrying a lot of hate in his heart for a long time… he must be tired. (The incident happened in January 2014).
