Travis Scott Sets World Record by Performing "Goosebumps" 14 Times

At this point going to a Travis Scott show, you must expect something wild to take place. The Houston rapper was arrested in Arkansas for “inciting a riot,” and fans during his New York performance jumped from a third-floor balcony.

Never to leave fans empty handed during a May 12th performance in Oklahoma City, Scott performed “Goosebumps” 14 times breaking a world record held by Jay Z and Kanye.

In 2012 the “Watch the Throne” duo performed “N***as In Paris” 12 times in Paris, so of course, Travis Scott made sure to break it by two, just in case.

Uncle Luke Calls Out DJ Khaled: "You Don't Run Anything in Miami"

Uncle Luke wants out of towners to stop all of the nonsense he’s hearing about DJ Khaled running Miami. The Miami rap legend took to Instagram with a video in which he sought to set the record straight about exactly who the day-one movers and shakers around his parts.

Papa Keith, Bo The Lover, Soul Syndicate, Soul Survivor DJ’s, Uncle Al…those are the guys who run Miami, says Luke. He threw the names out in response to having been told he needs to call Khaled. It was Khaled who if anything, has needed to call upon him for the opportunities that would eventually lead him to gain credibility and bring mainstream dominance back to the scene.

“My brother. This guy don’t run s**t down here neither. He just scream Miami out,” Luke said, after sharing that Khaled is actually a “settler” from New Orleans, who only wound up in Miami when his career didn’t jump off in Orlando. Luke says it was in fact, he, who initially put the We the Best label head on, when he brought him over to 99 Jamz after discovering him putting in work at Mix 96.

Fox News Host Kimberly Guilfoyle in Talks to Replace Sean Spicer

White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer may soon be out of a job.

Spicer took a leave last week that had many wondering whether he had been benched by the President over his erratic handling of duties in the press room. It was eventually clarified that his absence had long been planned. But Spicer didn’t miss a beat in terms of his penchant to draw controversy, with the media hounding him about awkwardly disappearing into a cluster of bushes to elude reporters as soon as he returned. While he was gone, whispers began to arise about the possibility of him being replaced altogether, as his fill-in Sarah Huckabee Sanders proved to be much more firm, even-keeled, and precise at dispensing information from the oval office.

Huckabee Sanders would respond to reports of a replacement by stating her respect for the Press Secretary and the administration, but dismissing the idea that she’d be open to assuming the job were it made available. Enter veteran Fox News host Kimberly Guilfoyle, who was actually one of the original candidates considered for the Press Secretary job. It is reported that Guilfoyle told a San Jose news publication that “a number of people” have encouraged her to pursue the position, and that she’d be honored to do so, in serving the country. “I think it’d be a fascinating job, it’s a challenging job, and you need someone really determined and focused, a great communicator in there with deep knowledge to be able to handle that position,” Guilfoyle told Mercury News.

Guilfoyle has worked at Fox since 2006, and has also contributed journalistic duties to Court TV and for Anderson Cooper 360, over the past several years. Prior to her career in media, she was a prosecutor, once in San Francisco, and once in Los Angeles. Any news person interested in getting on board with Trump would have to be a special type, as he is of course, notorious for his intense rapport with the press in the first place. In fact, the President so despises the media, he recently floated the idea of abolishing the Press Secretary position altogether.

“As a very active President with lots of things happening, it is not possible for my surrogates to stand at podium with perfect accuracy!” said Trump. “Maybe the best thing to do would be to cancel all future “press briefings.”

The Pitfalls of Online Dating

Technology has put the concept of dating at your fingertips. Find a match, swipe right, swipe life, and bam! You may just find the love of your life.

Unfortunately, things aren’t that easy. Online dating has become more complicated than we could have anticipated.

Relationship expert and author Andrea Syrtash helped us navigate through online dating and how to avoid these common pitfalls.

Online Shopping

You know what the biggest problem with online shopping is? We put all of the things we like in our shopping cart, but we seldom purchase them. Aside from the “purchase” part, the same can be applied to online dating, and that’s not a good thing. Andrea gave a straightforward explanation to this phenomenon. “People are always looking for the next best thing… the reality is that there will always be someone cuter, or seemingly more interesting if you keep scrolling.” As much as you might hate to admit it, there will always be someone more desirable than you in one way or another. That’s a fact. But you can only see so much in someone through a screen. “Until you meet live, you can’t assess your real potential.”

Communication

When you have your first interaction with someone through online dating, it is something that is typed out. This is understandable, at first. You’re not going to meet up with someone without ever speaking. It’s encouraged to chat with your match. However, “the issue arises when people get involved in e-relationships… people’s personas [through] email and text can be very different from the person who you’ll later hang out with,” Andrea explained. When you are messaging someone online, you have time to think of the perfect response. Think of the times you had a miscommunication over a misinterpreted text message. This kind of communication can get messy. Another communication issue is whether someone is looking for a relationship, or a hookup. People don’t always say what they mean; they say what they think you want to hear. “When people say they’re looking for both a relationship and casual sex, they generally want to make it clear that if there isn’t a long-term match potential, they’d still be up for fun.” Again, there are too many opportunities to mince words when dating online.

Distorted Representation

It’s no surprise that people are good at misrepresenting themselves online. People are sneaky! People use outdated or edited photos in their profile, or list things about themselves that aren’t really true. They have good intentions, but that’s not the way to find your match. However, these people cannot take all of the blame. People judge very harshly on who someone is, before they actually meet them. “Some online daters get super specific… you’re entitled to some superficial deal breakers, but choose them wisely.” There are things that you may not be a fan of, and then there are deal breakers. We’ve lost sight of the difference between those two factors when online dating

Fix It!

When it comes to online dating, just know that you’re not looking for a wedding dress that can be tailored to your exact taste. The guy you’ve dreamt up in your head may not exist, but there could be someone even better out there. Think outside of your list of qualifications for a man. And when it comes to your qualifications, “show your profile to a good friend and ask him or her to give honest feedback.” When online dating, Andrea says, “it’s important to also have a ‘real world’ strategy, where you’re not just swiping left and right all day. “ You should “take your communication offline as soon as possible. You’re more likely to assess your chemistry and connection after hanging out together for a half hour than you will after a string of emails or texts… [A] part of attraction is based on a full-sensory experience!”

Basically, online dating is just the jumping point to dating IRL.

New Music: Snoop Dogg feat. October London – ‘Go On’

Still sizzling off the release of “Swivel,” Snoop Dogg unleashes “Go On,” an October London-assisted banger off his forthcoming album Neva Left.

Featuring a perfect soundscape for the summer from producer Brody Brown, “Go On” finds Snoop rhyming about fun under the sun. “This that time of the year for everybody to be boisterous,” he raps. “Rock with Snoop Dogg and rejoice to this.”

London takes over from there, singing about “a little sunshine, a drink, and the summer breeze,” before Tha Doggfather comes back for a second verse about his evolution. “Riding on the bike with my grandson at the park,” he raps. “Evolve while I elevate / Take flight, levitate.”

“Go On” is the latest release off Neva Left following “420 (Blaze Up),” “Trash Bags,” “Promise You This,” “Mount Kushmore,” and the controversial “Lavender (Nightfall Remix).”

To go along with his newest cut, Snoop also revealed the tracklisting for Neva Left. The 16-track project is set to feature Wiz Khalifa, K Camp, Method Man, Too $hort, Devin the Dude, KAYTRANADA, Nef the Pharaoh, Charlie Wilson, Teena Marie, and KRS-One, among others.

The Weeknd’s ‘Starboy’ Video Surpasses 1 Billion YouTube Views

The Weeknd hits a billi.

While Abel continues his “Starboy: Legend of the Fall Tour” across North America, his Daft Punk-assisted “Starboy” video surpasses the 1 billion view milestone on YouTube.

Released in September of last year, the cinematic visual found The Weeknd dead and then revived with a fresh new haircut. Directed by Grant Singer (“Can’t Feel My Face,” “The Hills”), the clip also introduced fans to the “Starboy” persona and his subsequent album’s neon-colored motif.

Despite its whopping numbers, “Starboy” isn’t the XO boss’ most popular video. At press time, “Starboy” had 1,032,525,541 views and it was the second-most popular clip on his page behind “The Hills,” which had a total of 1,062,508,561 views. “Can’t Feel My Face” rounds out the top 3 with 787,245,939 views.

Currently, Abel is on the road with Rae Sremmurd, Belly, and 6LACK as part of the “Starboy: Legend of the Fall Tour” across North America. Dubbed “Phase One,” the run is set to conclude June 9 in Cincinnati.
