Kanye West throws shade at Pete Davidson and Kid Cudi with fake New York Times headline

Published

on

Kanye West has taken to Instagram to seemingly celebrate the break-up of Pete Davidson and Kim Kardashian, as well as throw shade at Kid Cudi.

Last week it was reported that Davidson and Kardashian split up after nine months of dating but have remained friends (per E! News).

Kardashian’s ex-husband West has since shared a fake New York Times front page announcing the death of “Skete Davidson”.

Ever since Davidson and Kardashian started dating, West has been vocally critical of the pair. He released a video for ‘Eazy’, which sees him bury Davidson alive as he raps the line “God saved me from that crash / Just so I can beat Pete Davidson’s ass”, as well as spreading a rumour that Davidson had AIDS.

Alhough he initially kept quiet on the matter, Davidson responded to West’s attacks a few days after the second ‘Eazy’ video landed, writing to the rapper in a text: “I’ve decided I’m not gonna let you treat us like this anymore and I’m done being quiet.”

When West responded and asked Davidson where he was, the comedian sent back a selfie and wrote that he was “in bed with your wife”.

Davidson isn’t the only one that West has come for in his latest Instagram post. Written in small print beneath the headline is: “Kid Cudi meant to play funeral but fearful of bottle throwers.”

Last month, Kid Cudi walked off during his headline set at Rolling Loud after crowd members repeatedly threw items onto the stage while chanting West’s name.

The rapper and singer – real name Scott Mescudi – replaced Kanye West on the bill at the Miami event when Ye “decided that he [would] no longer be performing”.

West and Cudi were previously close friends and collaborators but have had a tumultuous relationship since the mid-2010s. They fell out again earlier this year, supposedly due to Cudi’s friendship with Davidson.

Morrissey shares ‘Rebels Without Applause’, his first new single in three years

Published

on

Morrissey has shared new song ‘Rebels Without Applause’, his first new single in three years – check it out below.

The track appears on the former Smiths frontman’s upcoming new album ‘Bonfire Of Teenagers’. The album, the follow-up to 2020’s ‘I Am Not a Dog on a Chain’, was announced back in May of 2021, with the singer dubbing it “the best album of [his] life”.

After being offered to the “highest bidder,” it was then revealed that the album would be released via Capitol Records in February 2023, but this month saw Morrissey confirm that the release date had been pushed back and that “its fate is exclusively in the hands of Capitol Records”.

Now, he’s shared the album’s second song, ‘Rebels Without Applause’, via Capitol. Half of the album has already been previewed at Morrissey’s live shows throughout 2022. ‘I Am Veronica’ was the first song to be unveiled from it at a May show in Phoenix.

Several tracks from the album, including the title track, then premiered at a Las Vegas show in July, including ‘Rebels Without Applause’ alongside ‘Sure Enough, The Telephone Rings’ and ‘I Live In Oblivion’. Another new song, ‘Kerouac’s Crack’, was debuted during a Blackpool show in September.

Listen to ‘Rebels Without Applause’ below.

In October, it was confirmed that Andrew Watt had produced ‘Bonfire of Teenagers’. Others that feature on the album include the Red Hot Chili Peppers‘ rhythm section – bassist Flea and drummer Chad Smith – as well as former RHCP guitarist John Frusciante, Miley Cyrus and Iggy Pop.

This week, Morrissey shared a video of children mocking music critics, in promotion of his forthcoming album. The video sees one child approaching another, one of which is posing as a music journalist.

The scene shows the critic telling the Morrissey fan: “I don’t need to listen to the album; the review is already written,” after the fan encourages him to give it a good evaluation.

Live footage of Morrissey performing ‘I Am Veronica‘, the opening song on his forthcoming album, follows. We see the critic fall under something of a spell, becoming a firm Morrissey fan.

Earlier this week the singer cancelled two imminent dates on his current North American tour, citing “band illness”.

It comes after Morrissey cancelled his Los Angeles gig after just half an hour this month due to “unforeseen circumstances” – see footage of his departure below.

The singer was playing the Greek Theatre on Saturday, November 12 as part of a US headline tour when he departed the stage after nine songs. No official reason has been given for the cancellation yet, but some online are suggesting that the singer was “too cold” during his performance at the outdoor venue. Morrissey is yet to respond to any rumours about the termination of the gig.

Watch Sam Fender’s performance of ‘Alright’ from huge Finsbury Park gig

Published

Sam Fender has shared a new video of his performance of the song ‘Alright’ from his massive Finsbury Park gig this summer – check it out below.

The singer-songwriter played the outdoor London show in July, and the gig is set to be immortalised in a new live album due out on December 9 via Polydor.

The live album comes as part of a deluxe edition of Fender’s huge 2021 album ‘Seventeen Going Under’, which features nine extra tracks including ‘Wild Grey Ocean’, which was shared last month.

In a four-star review of Fender’s Finsbury Park set – which was attended by 45,000 fans and marked his biggest headline performance to date – NME said the performance “seemingly foreshadows Fender’s next steps, primed to level up from this huge moment to something utterly stratospheric.”

Watch him perform ‘Alright’ at the gig below.

In addition to joining the shortlist for this year’s Mercury Prize Album Of The Year, ‘Seventeen Going Under’ won the BandLab NME Award for Best Album In The World in March. Speaking of ‘Seventeen Going Under’ – which received a four-star review from NME – in a 2021 interview, Fender told NME he’s “more proud of [it] than anything I’ve ever done.”

“It’s probably the best thing I’ve done in my life. I just hope people love it as much as I do. With the first album, a lot of those songs were written when I was 19, so I was over half of it [by the time it was released]. Whereas this one is where I’m at now,” Fender said.

Sam Fender will playing two hometown shows at St James’ Park in Newcastle on June 9 and 10 2023. Inhaler and Holly Humberstone will be supporting on the first night.
