Watch Lil Dicky’s Star-Studded Video for ‘Earth’

One year after swapping lives with Chris Brown in the hilarious video for “Freaky Friday,” Lil Dicky is out to save the planet with his latest epic collaboration “Earth,” which arrives just in time for Earth Day on Monday (April 22).

The song was produced by Benny Blanco and Cashmere Cat, while the star-studded video features 32 of the biggest artists in the world including Justin Bieber, Ariana Grande, Ed Sheeran, Wiz Khalifa, Snoop Dogg, Sia, Rita Ora, and Katy Perry, along with Miguel, Lil Yachty, Tory Lanez, John Legend, Halsey, Shawn Mendes, and more.

“We love the Earth / It is our planet / We love the Earth / It is our home,” sings Dicky.

Each celebrity takes on a different role in the animated clip. Justin Bieber is a baboon, Ariana Grande is a zebra, Ed Sheeran is a koala, Snoop Dogg is a marijuana plant, and Kevin Hart plays Kanye West.

With the help of his famous friends, the rapper-comedian hopes to create awareness about the climate change crisis. “It’s all about saving the Earth. There’s an environmental crisis going on right now,” Dicky told Ellen DeGeneres. “We have 12 years to completely change the way we do so many things on Earth or the damage is irreversible.”

A portion of profits from the song, music video, and merchandise will be allocated to select nonprofits identified by the Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation to ensure the long-term health and wellbeing of Earth’s inhabitants. “That guy cares so much about the planet. He gets really worked up talking about it,” said Dicky of the Oscar-winning actor, who also makes a cameo in the video.

Nicki Minaj Splits with Longtime Managers

Nicki Minaj has parted ways with her longtime management.

A source close to the situation confirms to Variety that the rapper has split with Gee Roberson and Cortez Bryant and Blueprint/Maverick Management, who she had worked with for the majority of her career.

The decision was reportedly mutual and amicable, and no specific reason was given for the split. Minaj is currently a free agent and does not have a manager.

Variety reports that the split occurred before Minaj’s guest appearance during Ariana Grande’s Coachella set on Sunday night, which was plagued with technical difficulties.

In August 2018, Minaj released her latest album Queen, which debuted at No. 2 on the Billboard 200. She had announced plans for a co-headlining tour with Future, which was postponed. No new dates have been announced for North America. Meanwhile, several dates on her European tour with Juice WRLD were also postponed following production issues.

Despite the shift in management, Minaj continues her prolific musical output. She appears on Chris Brown’s new single “Wobble Up” and has collaborated with Kanye West on a new song for his upcoming album Yandhi.

Lil Yachty Reveals He Wrote City Girls’ ‘Act Up’

Lil Yachty is flexing his pen game.

The Quality Control rapper reveals that he wrote the majority of City Girls’ hit song “Act Up.” During an interview with Kerwin Frost (via XXL), Yachty said that he penned most of the EarlThePearll-produced track aside from J.T.’s final verse.

“When it came out, [people] was so shocked and they didn’t believe it,” he said. “I wrote the whole song except for J.T.’s last verse, but everything that everyone is singing and all, I wrote the whole thing.”

Yachty is listed as one of three writers, along with EarlThePearll and Jatavia “J.T.” Johnson, on the standout track off the duo’s November album Girl Code.

Yachty, who is signed to Quality Control along with City Girls, went on to explain his writing process. “I just thought like them,” added Yachty. “I know them personally and I know what women like to hear. I was like, ‘What’s just some raunchy shit?’ So before I went in the booth, I said, ‘No homo y’all.’ All my boys was in the room. And I started saying crazy shit. But I came out and I was like, ‘Y’all watch, this is about to blow up.’”

“Act Up” continues to blow up the charts. It currently sits at No. 40 on the Billboard Hot 100.

Justin Bieber Calls for Laura Ingraham Firing After Nipsey Hussle Comments

Justin Bieber is calling for Laura Ingraham’s firing.

The pop superstar is the latest artist to speak out against the conservative commentator after she made disrespectful on-air comments about Nipsey Hussle on her Fox News show “The Ingraham Angle.”

During a segment on the show last week, Ingraham discussed Hussle’s memorial service and mocked YG’s 2016 song “FDT” featuring Hussle, which includes the chorus, “F**k Donald Trump.” “So…the chorus it goes on and on… Is that related to the lowest unemployment ever, basically, for African Americans?” said Ingraham before laughing about the lyrics with another on-air personality.

On Thursday (April 18), Bieber took to Instagram to blast Ingraham for her “disgusting” remarks. “Laura Ingraham absolutely disgusting what you did on national television. How dare you laugh in the face of a person who has passed on,” he wrote. “Doesn’t matter who it is. But disrespecting someone’s who was a pillar in the community and did right by people? Did you not think about the family who just lost a love one and now have to see you mock him on national television It’s absurd and you should be fired period.”

Other artists including The Game have also spoken out in the wake of Ingraham’s comments. “So lemme tell you what’s going to happen here…. @foxnews fires this disrespectful cunt by tomorrow, Monday morning or you will lose millions of viewers one person at a time until it drastically effects your ratings, views etc,” wrote Game. “If our demographic doesn’t effect that we will STOP support of ALL SPONSORS immediately !!! We are NO LONGER laying quiet while you continuously disrespect our brother, culture African Americans as a whole. I will use my platform & call on my peers to do the same.”

T.I. also weighed in with his thoughts. “This is Disgusting! You both are vile despicable, poor excuses for people,” he said, while Tank called for Ingraham’s ousting. “Disrespecting the deceased is not news! It’s just disrespect!”

Ingraham has not apologized for her remarks about Hussle, but the backlash continues to grow. A petition demanding Ingraham’s firing currently has over 44,000 signatures.
