This week President Obama was asked a very important question, “Kanye or Jay-Z?” We’ve got the answer to that question below. Also, Frances Bean Cobain reacted to her mother’s (Courtney Love) ranting tweets about her and Dave Grohl canoodling in the back of car. All that and more, below.
- Surprise Guests At Coachella: Coachella has its official list of headliners and acts, but that doesn’t mean that there won’t be some unannounced guests showing up. If you are going to Coachella and want to be surprised, STOP reading and jump to the next bit of news. If you’re still reading, well here goes: Eminem, Warren G and Daz Dillinger will be joining Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg onstage this weekend and next. This show just got REAL!
- Jay-Z or Kanye?: President Obama prefers Jay-Z over Kanye West. This week, the president of our fine nation was asked by The Atlantic, “Kanye or Jay-Z?” “Jay-Z”, Obama responded. He continued by saying that he does like Kanye; he’s a Chicago native and a smart, talented guy, but still a jackass. “He’s a jackass, but he’s talented,” Obama said. We bet Kanye is in his studio right now, recording some new song that mentions how the President thinks he’s a jackass, but can’t deny he’s talented.
- Frances Bean Cobain Reacts: A few days ago, raging ranting queen Courtney Love stuck her foot in her mouth when she tweeted/hinted that there was a love affair between Dave Grohl and her daughter Frances Bean Cobain. The next day, 19-year-old Frances Bean reacted to her mother’s tyrannous rants by saying, “While I’m generally silent o the affairs of my biological mother, her recent tirade has taken a gross turn. I have never been approached by Dave Grohl in more than a platonic way. I’m in a monogamous relationship and very happy. Twitter should ban my mother.” Hey, that’s what we said!
- No Faces Reunion: The Faces reunion is off, but not really by choice. According to Billboard, Rod Stewart is too ill to perform and is held up in Los Angeles with a strep throat. But the show must go on, with or without Stewart; Mich Hucknall, lead singer of Simply Red, who has collaborated with Faces in the past, will take over vocals.
