Eminem adds Lady Gaga and Justin Bieber to his diss list

Eminem has spent roughly 65 percent of his legendary career making fun of famous people. It could even be said that you’re not truly a pop-culture icon until Slim Shady takes you down a notch—though that doesn’t necessarily mean you’ll stay famous, as Chris Kirkpatrick can attest.

So it should come as no surprise that Mr. Mathers has taken aim at Lady Gaga on one of the tracks for his forthcoming album Hell: The Sequel (a tag-team effort with Royce 5’9″ under the name Bad Meets Evil).

On the song “A Kiss,” Em spits the line “Tell Lady Gaga she can quit her job at the post office/ She’s already a male lady/ Wouldn’t f— her with her d—/ The verdict’s in.” Check out the song here:

Nicki Minaj wants to act with Will Smith, get directed by Tim Burton

As noted yesterday, Nicki Minaj walks away with Kanye West’s just-released “Monster” video just like she does the song; in playing two different versions of herself, she manages to hit on a dozen or so different aspects of her personality.

If you ask Minaj herself, nobody should be surprised that her acting chops are top-notch: “I went to school to be an actress. I never expected to be a rapper. It just fell in my lap,” she told Entertainment Weekly at Sunday’s MTV Movie Awards. “So I would like to get an acting gig. I hope that when I am done with the tour I can go back and do some acting. That is my long-term goal.”

Avril Lavigne goes on swearing tirade at Tampa Bay Rays baseball game: Watch the video here

It’s hard being the Tampa Bay Rays. The team is currently a game and a half out of first place in Major League Baseball’s toughest division, but they play in a terrible stadium that nobody really goes to anyway. And now, they’ve got an Avril problem.

On Saturday (May 28), after the team took a late-game thumping from the Cleveland Indians, the crowd was treated to a concert by Ms. Lavigne as a part of their summer concert series, which also features the likes of Miranda Lambert, Miranda Cosgrove, Goo Goo Dolls and REO Speedwagon.

Apparently, there were some technical difficulties at the top of the show, which lead to Lavigne dropping the F-bomb and several other choice words on a live microphone in front of an all-ages crowd, some of whom were reportedly booing in response to the sound difficulties. You can check out the NSFW audio after the jump.

Carrie Underwood passes Kelly Clarkson as most successful 'Idol' winner as two country stars square off in finals

While this season’s final contestents, Scotty McCreery and Lauren Alaina, battle it out for the metaphorical championship belt on American Idol, marking the first time in the history of the show that two country-based artists will be squaring off in the finals.

That could prove to be a boon for whoever walks away the victor, because season four winner Carrie Underwood just became the top-earning contestant in the history of Idol.

She just passed first season winner Kelly Clarkson on Billboard magazine’s tally, selling over 12 million albums and 18 million digital tracks since she picked up the duke in 2005. Clarkson slips to number two on the list, having sold 10 million albums and nearly 16 million downloads.

Snoop Dogg, Willie Nelson team up for smokey 'Superman' video

Nelson-Snoop

Snoop Dogg and Willie Nelson have a lot in common: They’re both legends in their respective genres. They each make dubious choices when it comes to collaborators. Both are braid enthusiasts. And both love country music.

Of course, they are also both advocates of a certain herbal substance that will grab a handful of headlines today. Appropriately, Snoop just dropped a new video for “Superman,” which features a guest spot from Nelson. Check it out after the jump.

Jeff Bridges signs a record deal, inches closer to becoming his character from 'Crazy Heart'

Jeff Bridges won an Oscar for his portrayal of a down-and-out musician on the road to nowhere in Crazy Heart, and now he’s officially on the road to real-life musician-dom with a record deal on Blue Note—the jazz-originated label that is currently home to Norah Jones and Amos Lee, among others.

Bridges will team up with old friend and producer T-Bone Burnett (who also twiddled the knobs on the Crazy Heart soundtrack, which won him an Oscar as well) to release an album. It will contain a handful of original compositions as well as covers of songs by Tom Waits, Bo Ramsey and Greg Brown.

His solo debut, due later this summer, will also feature guest appearances by the likes of Roseanne Cash and Sam Phillips (among others), though there is no word on whether or not Bridges’ greatest duet partner will be along for the ride.

Between the album news and Bridges penchant for getting real with reporters, it’s like the actor really is morphing into his Crazy Heart alter ego Otis “Bad” Blake (though honestly, better him than Clu 2).

What do you think readers—are you stoked for Bridges’ latest role?

Rebecca Black's 'Friday' will find a home on 'Glee'; which seat should she take?

Rebecca-Black

In Hollywood, you know you’ve reached critical mass when you’re asked to appear on The Simpsons. In the music world, another Fox show provides the same stamp of transcendence (just as long as it’s not performed by Foo Fighters or Kings of Leon).

Glee is that show, and its latest adoption is Rebecca Black’s viral behemoth “Friday,” which recently surpassed 100 million views on YouTube,

According to nymag.com, the song will appear an upcoming episode that centers around the prom, and will either be sung by Kevin McHale, Chord Overstreet and Mark Salling, or the combination of Salling and returning guest star Jonathan Groff, reprising his role as Vocal Adrenaline leader Jesse St. James.

At this point, both Black and Glee have faced so many backlashes (and, uh, frontlashes) that it’s impossible to tell whether it’s OK to still like them, or whether you should try to be ironic about it or not. What do you think, readers—are you ready for the fun fun fun fun? Should Black make a cameo? Tell us in the comments below.
