Bobby Brown Is Feisty as Ever on First New Song in Six Years
Bobby Brown hits back against unnamed detractors on “Like Bobby,” his first new song since 2012.

“Like Bobby” starts out sounding like an early 2000s hit from the rapper Mystikal, full of growly energy that morphs to take into account modern pop trends. When Brown rap-sings over a brassy trap beat, he sounds defiant: “Everybody gonna talk about it, talk about it/ And I don’t really give a fuck about it, fuck about it/ ‘Cause in the end I gotta be real like Bobby B.

On the positive end of the spectrum, she finished in second place during the fifth season of American Idol — arguably the finest, most patriotic karaoke contest on television — but she also sang “Redneck Woman” on Smash, a song choice that still keeps me up at night.

Diplo Uploads DJ Set From Xs Las Vegas’ 7th Anniversary Party

There aren’t a great many artists big enough to help the top grossing nightclub in the world celebrate its seventh anniversary. Hip-hop and bass music icon Diplo fits the bill, though, and he’s uploaded his two-and-a-half-hour set from the March 21st celebration to his SoundCloud account for everyone who wasn’t able to attend.

Before going in, though, it’s worth noting that this was one of Diplo’s more mainstream-friendly performances. Las Vegas nightclubs go for a very specific sound – so where his recent Diplo and Friends set showcased his expert ear for hip-hop, his Xs performance predominantly consisted of big room house and ringtone rap edits.

That said, Diplo‘s DJ set at Xs Las Vegas’ 7th anniversary celebration certainly still had its gems. He was nice enough to scrawl out a tracklist as well, so if you hear something you like then find it by

'New Girl': Jacuzz'!

'New Girl': Jacuzz'!
New Girl is back, y’all. No disrespect to last week’s premiere, but tonight felt like the level of hilarity, heartstring-pulling, and sharp storytelling that spoiled us last season. To wit, Jess and Nick once more earned their couplehood, from the minute he spit-smoothed her bangs to his final words to her (“I would have noticed you”); the mean girls — and boy — on the sidelines reaffirmed why we loved the loftmates so much; Schmidt was up to his usual douchebag jar-worthy antics… but almost redemptively guilty about his behavior, and Winston got the chance to play with an adorable kitteh.

Mystikal Jailed Over Rape Charge

Mystikal Jailed Over Rape Charge
Grammy-nominated rapper Mystikal was jailed on Thursday on charges of aggravated rape of a 40-year-old woman. Police in Baton Rouge, Louisiana also charged the musician, whose real name of Michael Tyler, with extortion, along with two other men, Leland Ellis, 36, and Vercy Carter, 34. New Orleans-native Tyler surrendered to authorities early Thursday and was released in the afternoon on $250,000 bond. Authorities claim the three men threatened to tell police that the alleged victim had received checks from the "Shake Ya A**" hitmaker's bank account without his permission. Tyler has been accused of demanding sex in exchange for not turning the woman over to police. He's accused of attacking the woman at his house on July 3. The police statement says Tyler allegedly threatened to hurt her and forced her to perform oral sex on him. Tyler allegedly called Ellis and Carter over to his residence, where he proceeded to rape the woman in front of them, before Ellis and Carter allegedly raped her too. The statement adds, "During the attacks, the victim was repeatedly threatened with prosecution of the checks and great bodily harm. The victim was allowed to leave the residence after the attacks. She was treated and released at a local hospital." Tyler's lawyers and his record company Jive have not returned calls seeking comment.
