M.I.A. Claims JAY-Z Told Her to Sign ‘Ridiculous’ Super Bowl Settlement

M.I.A. is putting JAY-Z on blast.

The “Paper Planes” rapper has accused her former Roc Nation manager of suggesting she sign a “ridiculous” contract with the NFL after she threw up the middle finger during Madonna’s Super Bowl halftime performance in 2012.

“If you’re talking about racism and sexism, that moment in my life showed the cracks in everyone I knew,” she told Huck Magazine. “I was at Roc Nation at the time and JAY-Z was managing me. The lawsuit was so ridiculous, it proposed that they would keep one hundred percent of my earnings for the rest of my life if I ever earned more than $2 million dollars. JAY-Z was, like, ‘You should sign that shit’ and I was, like, ‘No.’”

M.I.A. also says that she felt the scandal was unwarranted. “A middle finger, it’s like get a fucking grip,” she continues. “People were like, ‘Oh you’re lucky you’re not in jail, give up all your profit, be this slave for the rest of your life.’” She adds: “Oh god, I hope the NFL doesn’t sue me again for talking about it.”

The singer parted ways with Roc Nation in 2013. At the time, she also called the fallout “ridiculous.” “The NFL thing is completely ridiculous,” she said. “It’s been making me laugh for a while, but now it’s so boring, I don’t even laugh anymore.” She also called it a “massive waste of time and money” and a form of “powerful corporation dick-shaking.”

The Super Bowl scandal is featured in Stephen Loveridge’s documentary, ATANGI / MAYA / M.I.A. M.I.A. says the movie is not exactly like the one she would make. “I hate it,” she said. “No, that’s what people want me to say. The first time I saw it at Sundance, I was in shock. The second time I really liked it.” She adds: “Me and Steve have very different ideas of what a good film is.”

Regarding the film’s coverage of the Super Bowl scandal, she says it only shows a glimpse into what that moment was like. “What’s in the film is a very tiny bit of what happened to me in real life,” she added. “It’s quite entertaining for Steve to have made it into this nice little cookie but the reality of that was way worse. A lot of people I feel got off the hook.”

Tyga & Son King Cairo Sued Over Unpaid Rent

Tyga is in legal trouble once again. This time, his five-year-old son King Cairo joins him in a lawsuit.

Simon Cowell’s former fiancée Mezhgan Hussainy is suing Tyga and King over unpaid rent. She claims the “Rack City” rapper stopped paying his $40,000/month rent at her Beverly Hills home in January, as per TMZ.

Hussainy is hoping to evict Tyga and receive back rent. King Cairo is only a defendant because the rapper put his child’s name on the lease, according to the report.

Tyga’s lawsuit streak continues. Several people sued the rapper in 2016 over various issues. Last year, Blac Chyna accused him of failing to pay child support.

Tyga released his latest album, Kyoto, in February.

T-Pain Launches Wiscansin University

T-Pain launched Wiscansin University, and fans “Can’t Believe It.” The Tallahassee star announced his latest campaign on social media, promoting a new line of school-themed merch.

Inspired by T-Pain’s pronunciation of Wisconsin as “Wiscansin” on 2008’s “Can’t Believe It,” the campaign includes a dedicated website. It features a comedic rundown of faculty members, campus life, academics, and more.

Naturally, T-Pain is the dean of the school, which offers an array of classes. Courses include “The History of Auto-Tune,” “Bottoms Up Film Studies,” “Cooking With Teddy,” “Accounting for Strippers,” and “The Working Stripper.” The school’s mission statement reads: “We ignore what matters most and focus on having the most fun.”

Although Wiscansin U is new, it already has some famous alumni. Chris Brown, Rick Ross, Lil Wayne, and DJ Khaled are among the school’s illustrious list of graduates. Famous College Dropout Kanye West is apparently also an alum.

The hilariously fake university works to promote a new line of merch. Currently, T-Pain is selling Wiscansin T-shirts, hoodies, crewnecks, and hats. He’s also hocking a mug that reads: “This is some bullshit.”

When he’s not on campus, T-Pain has been in the studio recording a string of T-mixes and his long-awaited album Stoicville.
