The pop star singer casually walked into Alexander Wang’s Brooklyn-based fashion week after party on Saturday, sporting shiny black pants and nothing else. The 21-year old celebrity decided to party topless, only hiding her nipples with ice cream cone shaped pasties. Miley also wore cannabis-shaped earrings and sunglasses attached with what looked like pills. At this Bushwick party, Miley was seen partying with Kendall & Kylie Jenner, and also Hailey Baldwin.

Katy Perry tweets diss after Taylor Swift mentions rival celebrity in new interview

            Is it now Taylor Swift vs. Katy Perry? A controversial tweet may have unleashed a feud going on between two pop stars, after 29-year old Perry responded to Swift’s new Rolling Stone magazine interview. On early Tuesday morning, Katy Perry subtweeted a major “Mean Girls” reference saying, “Watch out for the Regina George in sheep’s clothing…” The diss seems to be in response to Taylor Swift’s interview, in which she explains an unknown “enemy” celebrity that was the inspiration for her new song “Bad Blood.” Swift told the magazine, “For years, I was never sure if we were friends or not. She would come up to me at awards shows and say something and walk away, and I would think, ‘Are we friends, or did she just give me the harshest insult of my life?’…(Then last year) she did something so horrible. I was like, ‘Oh, we’re just straight-up enemies.’ And it wasn’t even about a guy!” With rumors building up around the song, Swift claimed the feud behind “Bad Blood” isn’t about any ex-boyfriend drama. Swift explained to Rolling Stone,  “It had to do with business. She basically tried to sabotage an entire arena tour. She tried to hire a bunch of people out from under me. And I’m surprisingly non-confrontational ——— you would not believe how much I hate conflict. So now I have to avoid her. It’s awkward, and I don’t like it.”

U2 drops new album for free on iTunes

             Artists these days have been pulling a “Beyonce” with releasing their albums. The Irish hit band U2 shocked fans by releasing their newest album, “Songs of Innocence,” for free on the iTunes store Tuesday. Apple, which exposed the iPhone 6 and Apple Watch, announced U2’s major news after Bono and his band performed at the company’s press event. Rolling Stones described “Songs of Innocence” as “the largest album release of all time”, that so many fans went to iTunes to download the album and the music service crashed. In a Rolling Stone interview, Bono stated, “Let’s try to figure out why we wanted to be in a band, the relationships around the band, our friendships, our lovers, our family. The whole album is first journeys —— first journeys geographically, spiritually, sexually. And that’s hard. But we went there.”  The free album will be around on iTunes through October 13th

Khloe Kardashian and French Montana have taken a break from each other

            Khloe Kardashian has decided to get some breathing space in her personal relationship. The 30-year old reality celebrity has split up with rapper French Montana to get some space. A source reported to Us Weekly, “They are on a break. The relationship got too heavy and Khloe needed to take a step back. She just wants time apart from him.” Khloe and French’s relationship started up shortly after Kardashian’s famously exposed break-up from her basketball player husband of four years, Lamar Odom, back in late December. Another source stated that Montana was too needy and “became so dependent” on Khloe Kardashian. In a Billboard magazine interview during August, Montana confessed to taking advantage of their relationship to improve his career. The famous rapper stated, “I want to capitalize on it. I’ll get a fan base from everywhere. I just hope I’ll be able to connect with everything that’s going on.”

OK Go claims Apple’s iPhone launch video ripped off its music video

            Everything is not OK with OK Go. The indie rock band famously known for its “out of the box” music videos accuses Apple of ripping off its video “The Writing’s on the Wall.” The band’s manager, Andy Gershon, told Bloomsberg Businessweek that the “visual trick” that OK Go utilized in its video was copied by Apple for its video “Perspective.” The Apple clip aired at the start of the company’s presentation for the iPhone 6 and Apple Watch. The music video “The Writing’s on the Wall” displays the band lip-synching to their song as they constantly move around the room, as the audience’s perception is altered consistently due to the band’s movements and costumes, as well as the changing camera angles and colorful set. The group’s video is filmed in one long tracking shot, as is Apple’s video “Perspective.” Gershon stated that Apple eventually hired both the same director and production company that worked on “The Writing’s on the Wall” to create “Perspective.”
