Beyonce has apparently removed a sample of that 2003 Kelis song “Milkshake” from her song “Energy,” following all of the heat and criticism from Kelis over the sample. Now the song “Energy” from her latest album Renaissance had revised versions on Tidal and Apple as of this week, according to Rolling Stone. At one point a glitch occurred on Tidal with just isolated vocals featured and almost two minutes of silence took place. That was according to Entertainment Weekly

The version of “Energy” featuring the Kelis sample remained the same on Spotify, but the 2003 hit from Kelis was pinned by Pharrell Williams and Chad Hugo. You remember them? They were formerly known as the Neptunes. Well, they are both credited on the Beyonce track but Kelis isn’t. Oops, there it is. 

Well, Kelis commented that she was shocked by the song’s credit and angered not to have any advance notice. She says, “My mind is blown because of the level of disrespect and utter ignorance at all three parties. It’s just astounding.” 

Well, you know what, at least it’s taken care of. And perhaps the two ladies will make up at some point. Hey, it’s all about the money. 

Chris Brown is defending his racy meet and greet with fans after snaps of the eye-catching poses were posted to Twitter. Well, the singer is posing in these sexually suggestive poses with the fans who purchased the VIP package. And on the VIP package, you get your photo with Chris. And of course, he might have his hands on your backside or very close in contact. 

But Chris wrote in his Instagram stories that all artists have VIP meet and greet packages. He hasn’t had one in seven years, but he claims he has the coolest fans on the planet and he really loves them. Therefore, he wants these memories to last forever. Okay, Chris. You just don’t want them to last forever because you end up in court, okay? Because you’ve been there before. Just saying.

Nick Cannon rented out an entire waterpark for his 11-year-old twins, Moroccan and Monroe to enjoy together. Of course, this is less than a week after the birth of his eighth child. Well, he was spending some quality time with his eldest kids, who he shares with his ex Mariah Carey, and he shared a video of himself at DreamWorks Water Park in New Jersey having a blast with the preteens. They were squealing with excitement and just loving the fact that they had a water park to themselves. They call it the ‘Roc and Roe takeover.’ I absolutely love it. 

As I mentioned, he’s still having babies. This fun-filled excursion comes after he welcomed his eighth child, a son named Legendary Love. That was on June 28th. And you know, I just remember Mariah Carey being pregnant with ‘dem babies’ as she called it. They’re growing up. I love it.
