According to new reports, Donald Trump’s son-in-law and White House adviser Jared Kushner tried to set up communications between the President and the Kremlin after the election. The claims surfaced after conversations between Russian Ambassador Sergei Kislyak and Moscow.
It is being noted that Kislyak could be exaggerating the situation, as the Washington Post reported, “Kislyak has a good reputation in terms of the accuracy of his reporting, according to the officials that I’ve talked to. That being said, … adversaries to the United States routinely put false information into their communications. Sometimes they do so in order to see if the Americans are in that channel.”

Notorious assassin Lee Boyd Malvo, who together with John Allen Muhammad made up the D.C. sniper duo responsible for 10 murders over a span of three weeks in the early 2000’s, had his life sentences tossed and was granted a retrial on Friday, May 26.
It has been 8 years since Muhammad’s execution in 2009. Malvo, who was only 17-years-old when the tandem was captured, after waging terror against unsuspecting citizens in the Virginia, Maryland and D.C. area [DMV], remains alive and well at the age of 32, however. He was sentenced to two life-long terms in prison in March of 2004, three months after his conviction for two capital crimes, including one for the murder of an F.B.I. analyst.
U.S. District Judge Raymond Jackson ordered the dismissal of Malvo’s sentences on the grounds that he was still a minor when they were handed to him, thus invoking a 2012 Supreme Court decision, which outlawed life sentences for juveniles as unconstitutional. In response to the decision, Virginia Attorney General Mark Herring released a statement through a spokesman, that promised his office “will do everything possible, including a possible appeal, to make sure this convicted mass murderer serves the life sentences that were originally imposed.”
Turkey issued an arrest warrant for Oklahoma Thunder’s Enis Kanter, as they claim he’s part of a terrorist group. Kanter has been outspoken about the government in his native Turkey in the past and has voiced support for Fethullah Gulen and the “Gulen Movement.”
Gulen is a Muslim spiritual leader who has been living in exile in Pennsylvania for the last 15 years, and he was accused of organizing a military coup against Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan in 2016. Gulen has denied any involvement in the situation.
Just last week, Kanter was detained in Romania after he was denied entry to Turkey. Kanter has said that he wishes to become an official U.S. citizen, telling reporters, “Right now I am country-less. I am open to adoption definitely. I am going to try to become an American citizen.”

White Iverson meets the real Iverson.
On Thursday (May 26), a dream came true for Post Malone, when he met NBA Hall of Famer Allen Iverson, the man who inspired the rapper’s breakout single.
“I met the legend last night and there’d be no ‘White Iverson’ without him,” Malone told Billboard. “I’m still tripping at how sick it was, and as A.I. says, ‘The culture has no boundaries.’”
The former 76ers point guard — who also had a brief rap career — shared a clip of himself rhyming along to the track with Posty last night. “Real life,” reads the caption. Another photo of the duo was captioned with: “The culture has no boundaries.”
Malone shared a snapshot of himself and A.I. on social media too. “FINALLYYYYYYYYYDMRNEJSOFBRVRI,” he captioned it.
The meeting is a long time coming. In March of 2016, Allen Iverson told Complex that he wanted to meet Malone. “I never got an opportunity to meet him. I want to meet him,” he said. “He did an awesome job. I was just telling my friend on the way over here that when we get in the car, we hear [‘White Iverson’] at least like 10 times a day. It definitely gets a lot of record play around here. And it’s just an honor for him to make a song with my name in it.”
Up next, Malone is working on Beerbongs & Bentleys, the follow-up to last year’s Stoney, which spawned the 4x platinum “White Iverson.”
Ayo & Teo have been making a name for themselves, and scoring superstar fans like Justin Bieber, Chris Brown, and Kylie Jenner. Now, the Atlanta duo unleashes the dance-filled video for their viral sensation “Rolex.”
Sporting their signature masks, the brothers show off their slick moves throughout the DAPS-directed clip. Whether standing alone in front of a white background or in front of a Ferris Wheel with all their friends, they always have some acrobatic contortions to share.
The clip also features a cameo from their mentor Usher, whose “No Limit” video they appeared in. He joins the guys and even does the dab. Plus, fellow social media sensation I Got Barrz shows up to the dance circle, fresh off his “SNL” performance with Katy Perry.
“We’re excited about the video,” Ayo & Teo told The FADER. “It’s all ages and we just had fun shooting it. It’s one of the most hype videos of the year – a lot of youth, energy, and dancing. The song wouldn’t have gotten made if we didn’t want the rolex so if you really want something, you just have to go out there and get it.”
The BL$$D and BackPack Miller-produced “Rolex” has received over 81 million streams on YouTube alone. Up next, the group will perform “Rolex” at the BET Experience in L.A.
Sremm Mix. After watching his brother Swae Lee and French Montana rise up the Hot 100 with “Unforgettable,” Rae Sremmurd’s Slim Jxmmi adds his verse to the infectious track.
Although this edition doesn’t feature Montana, the “Sremm Remix” finds Swae and Slim reunited. “She wine like an island girl,” raps Jxmmi. “Before I leave, I gotta talk to her / Bad ting, she’s a bad ting / Very bad ting, she’s a bad ting.”
The remix, which features Zoë Kravitz on the cover, arrives shortly after the Tupelo, Mississippi duo announced their Sremm Life 3 project, which is expected this year.
It also lands while the Sremm brothers are in the middle of The Weeknd’s “Starboy: Legend of the Fall Tour,” which is set to run through July.
The original “Unforgettable” has been French’s best-performing single as a lead artist. It currently sits at No. 24 on the Hot 100.
Dua Lipa and Miguel take flight in the vivid video for their “Lost in Your Light” collaboration.
The rising U.K. songstress opens the clip by singing in a Los Angeles parking lot, before she levitates to the rooftop where she finds Miguel. Soon, the gravity-defying duo is whisked away, only to return to the rooftop for an evening duet, overlooking the city’s skyline.
Dua and Miguel get lost in the music and lost in the air. When they are finally back on solid ground, they’re joined by a fleet of dancers for the finale outside of a downtown L.A. warehouse.
“Lost in Your Light” is a single off Dua’s self-titled album, due June 2. The project is set to feature 17 songs, including “Hotter Than Hell,” “Be the One,” and “Room for 2.”
Miguel’s latest video follows his DJ Premier collabo “2 Lovin U,” which dropped earlier this year. Outside of that, he is working on the follow-up to 2015’s Wildheart.
