ABC/Randy HolmesEven if this Mariah Carey story isn't true at all, it's actually somewhat believable -- and hilarious.

The Fix, an Australian gossip site, reports that Mariah's billionaire Aussie fiance James Packer really messed up when he attempted to set a romantic mood with her recently.  An "insider" tells the site, "To get her in the mood last month, he turned on [Beyonce's] 'Crazy in Love', and oh boy, was that a disaster. Mariah threw the computer that was playing it via speakers out the window! Seriously, just trashed it."

Not only that, but the insider claims, "She ran out of the room screaming. So the night was obviously finished for James, and they retreated to separate parts of the house."

Another source tells the website that another time, Packer put on Jennifer Lopez's "Waiting for Tonight," which caused Mariah to throw a fit. He soothed her by switching to her own greatest hits album.

"He has learned never, ever to play another female artist in the house," dishes the source. "It's either Mariah, jazz or classical!"

It was recently reported that Mariah insisted on having her own music playing not long ago when she and Packer dined in Capri, Italy.  And by now, you've heard her ex Nick Cannon's claims that they used to get it on exclusively to her music.

Tamar Braxton and her husband, Vince Herbert, who were allegedly involved in a domestic violence dispute that turned physical, are now refuting claims that they are having marital problems. 

The couple, who reportedly had the altercation at the Ritz Carlton hotel in Atlanta over the weekend, were spotted holding hands at LAX on Monday. 

In a video captured by TMZ, Vince gives the cameraman the thumbs up when asked if he and Tamar were okay. Although the couple did not verbally confirm or deny the report, they both smiled, acknowledging they were still on good terms.

According to TMZ, officers determined that the alleged domestic dispute, where Tamar was reportedly bitten on the hand by Vince, was actually just a shouting match and therefore no crime was committed.

Neither Tamar or Vince have publicly commented on the rumors.

Jeff Kravitz/MTV1415/FilmMagicJust days after Kanye West released a brief -- but heartfelt -- ode to McDonald's fries and pies -- and threw a little shade on the McRib -- the fast food giant has responded. 

As part of the promotion for Frank Ocean's new video album, Blonde, Yeezy penned the poem "The McDonald's Man," which anthropomorphized Mickey D's food.  It read, in part,  "...the french fries had a plan...The salad bar and the ketchup made a band, 'cause the french fries had a plan."

He goes on to praise, "that smooth apple pie," while taking a shot at the McRib, who observes the goings on through "his artificial meat eyes."

On their Twitter feed, McDonald's responded, "We're lovin' the love for McDonald's World Famous Fries and Apple Pies," while literally addressing Yeezy's McRib beef by clarifying, "Like the beef in our burgers, our love for our fans' creativity is 100% real." The post added some emoji that translates to "world famous fries mic drop."

"The aim is to highlight how all people, from crime survivors to law enforcement, to children, to formerly incarcerated individuals, are impacted by mass incarceration," says Legend in the video clip.

Denise Truscello/WireImageWhen Ciara and professional football player Russell Wilson tied the knot in London, England July 5, they were also taking a stand against North Carolina's anti-LGBT law, according to one report.

The couple had reportedly planned to wed in North Carolina -- where Wilson went to college -- but called it off due to the state's controversial House Bill 2, known as the Bathroom Bill, their wedding planner, Mindy Weiss tells The Knot.

The state's restrictive law forces transgender men and women to only use bathrooms matching the gender they were born into, rather than the one with which they identify.

Ciara, 30, and Wilson, 27, also considered Paris, France as a possible location, according to Weiss, but were forced to look elsewhere when they learned their wedding date would coincide with Fashion Week.

Josh Brasted/WireImageFrank Ocean's long-awaited sophomore album, Blonde, is tipped to grab the number-one spot this week on the Billboard 200 chart.  

This would mark the recording artist's first number-one studio effort. His Grammy-winning debut album, channel ORANGE, grabbed the number-two Billboard 200 spot in 2012.

Billboard projects that the album, which was released on Saturday, could sell up to 225,000 to 250,000 units in the week ending on August 25.

Ocean also released a music video for one of the tracks on Blonde, "Nikes," and "Boys Don't Cry" magazines in London, New York City, Chicago and Los Angeles pop-up shops to celebrate the debut of his latest album.

(L-R) Sheryl Underwood, Sara Gilbert, Nick Cannon, Carnie Wilson, Aisha Tyler and Sharon Osbourne; Lisette M. Azar/CBSNick Cannon has announced he's headed back to school, sharing with fans his first day of school photo in front of Howard University.

The actor/rapper made the announcement via Instagram, writing, "YOU KNOW!!!!!! #HU2020 My First Day as a Freshman!!! Howard University Class of 2020."

Cannon, who starred in the 2002 film Drumline, where he played a freshman musician at the fictional historically black college, Atlanta A&T University, has drawn some humorous reactions from social media, including his former Drumline co-star, Orlando Jones.

Using a reference from the movie, Jones, who played the bandleader who questions Cannon's tardiness to class, tweeted, "Just remember @NickCannon "You're on time if you're 5 minutes earlier, You're late if you're on time!" #OneBandOneSound PS - Congrats."

No word on if Nick Cannon will be joining Howard University's marching band.

Jason Merritt/Getty ImagesFrank Ocean's second studio album, Blonde, was finally released this past weekend, sending fans into a tizzy over its new tracks. However, two of the album's songs, "Ivy" and "Seigfried", debuted back in 2013, Billboard reports.

Ocean performed the two ballads during a Munich, Germany show three years ago, confirmed by video clips found on YouTube. The live versions aren't the same as the final cuts heard on Blonde, but they're the same singles.

Blonde is the follow-up album to Ocean's first studio effort, channel ORANGE, which earned the artist a Grammy award for Best Contemporary Urban album in 2013. In tandem with the long-awaited release, Ocean pop-up shops debuted in Los Angeles, Chicago and New York to commemorate the event.

Scott Dudelson/FilmMagicHow could it be so heartless? Kanye West's Pablo pop-up store event was apparently a bust this past weekend in New York City. Countless fans arrived to the the Tribeca location hours before the store's opening, only to notice its less than satisfactory merchandise, says New York Post's Page Six.  

"Today was a disaster," said an East Harlem MTA worker who attended the affair. "I spent $200 on one shirt and a couple of hats. Honestly I like his first pop-up store better," he added. 

A student from Washington, D.C., who waiting 11 hours to head inside of the shop, was also upset about his experience -- and more specifically, the clothing itself.  "The quality of [the] clothes is crap and it is pretty expensive. Not worth it," he said.  

Even members of the New York City Police Department at the store were frustrated, citing a lack of security to tame the hundreds of people in attendance, Page Six reports. Kanye followers appeared to have also become unnerved by re-sellers who were already selling the rapper's exclusive merchandise outside of the shop for almost double of the original prices.

Josh Brasted/FilmMagicTory Lanez released his debut studio album, I Told You, this past Friday. The Canadian artist lives a comfortable life, with the success of his single "Say It," which peaked at number 10 on the Billboard Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs charts in 2015.  But Lanez says he still feels like he's trying to make it.

"I have a lot of money, but I still feel broke," he tells The Guardian. "When I say I feel broke, I don't mean broke in a financial sense but I still feel like that kid from the gutter who's still trying to get it, even though I'm at the place I want to be."

"I'm thankful to God that my life changed, but I'm also still on my grind," he adds, noting that even if he goes on to greater success, he'll continue to make changes.  

"I believe later in life I'm gonna change my name when I start making the right music," he tells the U.K. newspaper.  "I don't feel like I'm making the right music to have that name yet. When I get to a certain level, I'll start going by Daystar."
