The news that A$AP Rocky had been arrested in Sweden had Longitude fans worried for days, and now the news has been confirmed that the US rapper will not headline the festival tonight.

He was set to headline the main stage at the summer festival in Marlay Park but was detained by Swedish authorities in relation to an alleged assault last weekend.

The star was arrested after a gig at the Smash festival in Stockholm on Tuesday, and police are stating that four people were initially arrested.

Three of these people were suspected of serious abuse and one of assault, but the person suspected of assault was released two days ago and is no longer a suspect.

It is rumoured that the altercation began as a result of the men seemingly following A$AP Rocky in the street and of inappropriately touching women.

His replacement on the main stage at Longitude has been announced as rapper Ski Mask The Slump God.

Longitude is also being headlined by Stormzy and Cardi B, with Wild Youth and Anne Marie also performing over the course of the weekend.

Chance the Rapper was also originally a headliner, but cancelled recently to much fan disappointment.

Thousands will attend the festival over the next three days, with the gates opening from 1.30pm.

It's that time of the year again, when Irish people suddenly realise their obsession with rap music and flock down to Marlay Park for a sunny weekend of cans and tunes.

Like every major festival, Longitude has some valuable information regarding safety, rules, entry and transport that you all have to read before making the trek down.

First of all, the gates open at 1:30pm each day, and if you arrive to the event intoxicated then you unfortunately won't be permitted entry this weekend.

This year is set to be bigger than ever, with none other than Chance the Rapper, Cardi B and A$AP Rocky headlining the sold-out festival.

Cardi B has BITTEN BACK about her plastic surgery habits after certain members of the public called her lazy for cancelling gigs.

The notorious rapper had to cancel a few gigs due to her surgeries, and said it cost her millions of dollars to do so. However, we all know and love that Cardi snaps whenever anyone comes for her, so maybe don't do it?

Some of her followers accused her of laziness for getting procedures after giving birth to Kulture, but the Press artist kept her response brutally honest.

Cardi B previously opened up about undergoing liposuction at a concert in Memphsis, admitting that she should have cancelled the show;

"I should have cancelled today. I shouldn’t really be performing because moving too much is gonna f*ck up my lipo. But b*tch, I’m still gonna get my motherf*cking money bag, let’s go!”

She later had to cancel shows this month, which led to online followers branding her as 'lazy' for not taking the time to work out. It's fair to say that Cardi put the haters in their place in her recent Instagram Live, they may never revive themselves.

"I hate cancelling shows because I love money. I’m a money addict…I get paid a lot of money, a lot of money for these shows. A lot of money. I’m cancelling millions of dollars in shows, but health is wealth so I have to do what I have to do.”

She also slammed anyone for trying to tell her what to do with her own physique, which we applaud. It's her money and her body, let the woman live her damn life in peace.

For the record, she said that she would have performed every show but her doctor insisted that she cancel them for the sake of her HEALTH, fam.

Speaking out against critics of her plastic surgery, the I Like It rapper said;

"I do whatever the f*ck I want to do with my body, I don’t have the time of day like you do. My job as an entertainer is a 24-hour job, bro. So no I don’t have time to work out. I wanted specific things that I know that no matter how much I work out won’t get fixed." Go off, sis.

Selena Gomez has spent the night in the studio, making her fans' dreams come true by confirming her big return to music.

Her last bout of music was a verse in Taki Taki, but only a minor feature. The fans want full-length tunes on an ALBUM, God damn.

The singer decided to update her fans about her artistic projects, and it looks like she's officially back;

"This week, next week and every week," she captioned the Instagram video.

After dropping her new collaboration with J Balvin, Benny Blanco, and Tainy called I Can't Get Enough, Selena shared a video of herself and her girlfriend looks hard at work.

Unforch, the video doesn't include any audio, so we have zero clue what exactly she's recording. We wonder if the caption is a hint about the song itself?

The fans are freaking out, which is hardly surprising. Her fanbase remains large, even though Ariana Grande overtook her last week as the most followed woman on Instagram.

According to E! News, Selena's been putting in long hours in the studio, so let's hope she's working on a whole album;

"Selena has been in the studio working hard. She's putting in long hours and spending all day working on new material. On Tuesday and Wednesday, she was in the studio for eight hours without a break."

Cardi B has been ALL OVER the internet lately, from expletive-filled rants to winning Grammys to adorable Kulture videos.

We just can't get enough, never let it end Cardi. You're a treasure to us all. Except when she gets really X-rated with her hubby Offset (cheater, cheater, compulsive eater). We ain't here for that.

After making history for being the first woman ever win Best Rap Album at the Grammys last Sunday, Cardi has announced a brand new single is being released today with Bruno Mars.

While we're delighted that the rap goddess is collaborating again with her Finesse singing partner Bruno, we did NOT need the Valentine's video with Offset.

Basically, the 26-year-old posted a Valentine's Day video featuring her husband, while playing a clip of her new song (which sounds like a banger).

It essentially involves her Migos lover grinding against her head (yes, seriously) while she mouths the words of her own rap in the song. Help.

She captioned the video; "PLEASE ME OUT NOW! CARDI B AND BRUNO MARS…HAPPY VALENTINES DAY, WE GETTING REAL F*CKING FREE TONIGHT."

We're not exactly sure what that means, so we asked Google Translate.

They didn't know either, but suggested Cardi is just expressing excitement for sexual contact with her husband on Valentine's Day and the release of her new single with Bruno. Seems legit.

If anyone need an injection of cuteness, make sure to watch their daughter Kulture say 'mama' over and over, while Offset tries to make her say 'papa'. It's just so pure.

Posting to Twitter, she teased Offset about their baby's favourite word; "This what happens when you throw in my face that she said papa first; now she can’t stop saying mama."

We have to hand it to Cardi, she always provides the entertainment factor.

Lady Gaga has spoken out against the backlash regarding Cardi B's historic Grammy win for Best Rap Album.

The Joanne artist took to Twitter to express her pride in the Bodak Yellow rapper, who is the first solo woman to ever win the accolade.

Praising the rap star and social media personality, Gaga wrote;

"It is so hard to be a woman in this industry. What it takes, how hard we work through the disrespectful challenges, just to make art. I love you Cardi. You deserve your awards."

She concluded by telling her fans to "celebrate her fight. Lift her up & honoor her", calling Cardi "brave" for entering an industry which is notoriously difficult for women.

Cardi B was also pregnant with baby Kulture Kiara while recoding Invasion of Privacy, and worked tirelessly for months to finish it. The rapper has faced criticism over her Grammy win, with some claiming she is undeserving.

The duo became instant pals after meeting at the Grammy, after Cardi approached the A Star Is Born actress and legit fan-girled. 

In 2016, Cardi tweeted about the Mother Monster's huge impact on her life: "When I was a teenager lady Gaga changed my life," she wrote. "She inspired me to be myself & be different." Gaga replied "Love you girl."

Cardi beat Travis Scott, Pusha T, Nipsey Hussle and Mac Miller in her category for the Best Rap Album Grammy, with Ariana Grande tweeting her disappointment that her deceased ex-boyfriend Mac Miller didn't win posthumously.

The rapper thanked her fans on Sunday night, and then uploaded then deleted an expletive-laden clip defending her hard work on Invasion of Privacy

"You know what, it's not my style for people to put other people down to uplift somebody else. That's not my style and that's not what I'm with and I don't support that, however I've been taking a lot of sh*t today," Cardi told the camera.

She continued; "I'm seeing a lot of bullsh*t today and I saw a lot of sh*t last night and I'm sick of this sh*t. I work hard for my mother f*cking album."

She referred to last year's criticism, which was supportive of her in comparison to this year;

"Everybody was like, 'Cardi got snubbed! Cardi got snubbed!' Now this year's a f–king problem? My album went two times platinum my n*gga and every chart that there was my album was always top ten, number one album as well!"

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

A post shared by THEPINKCHAT.COM (@thepinkchat) on

Cardi's baby Kulture was born on July 10 last year, and fell pregnant while creating the winning album;

"I f–king worked my a– off, locked myself in the studio for three months my n—a and then went to sleep in my own bed sometimes for four days straight—pregnant!" she said about it.

"Some songs couldn't even get on the f–king album because my nose was so f–king stuffy from my pregnancy." Chance the Rapper was another artist who jumped to her defence, as well as J. Cole:

Chance the Rapper called her victory "overly deserved," with J. Cole writing: "I don't never wanna be propped up by tearing somebody else down. Seeing Cardi B win a Grammy make me feel like I won."

Cardi re-tweeted the messages, saying; 

"I listen to my album and I cry because I know the hell I went through doing the album is always a bittersweet memory," she typed alongside Chance's screenshot.

"THANK YOU EVERYONE THAT SUPPORTED ME AND LISTEN. I'm thankful and grateful and again thank you to all the artist that gave me a feature."

Lady Gaga has been outspoken about how difficult the music world is for women, saying at the Golden Globes: "As a woman in music it is really hard to be taken seriously."

The 32-year-old wrote her award-winning song Shallow about communication and having your voice heard;

"This song is a conversation between men and women. Asking each other questions about life and a desire for more depth of the shallowness of a modern era."

We LOVE seeing women support other women, keep it up Gaga.

The Food Safety Authority of Ireland have recalled four Miss Fit Skinny tea and coffee products over 'misleading labelling'.

Miss Fit Skinny Tea 14 Day Skinny Tea, Miss Fit Skinny Tea Max, Miss Fit Slimming Coffee 14 Day Fat Burning Instant Coffee and Miss Fit Skinny Coffee Max are the products which will be recalled.

The FSAI released a statement on the matter, saying; "All batches of the above four Miss Fit products are being recalled due to incorrect, misleading and ambiguous labelling."

"Amongst the labelling breaches are health claims which are not authorised and are therefore misleading to the consumer."

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

A post shared by Miss Fit Skinny Tea (@missfitskinnytea) on

Products from the brand have been asked to be removed from the market. Shops have been ordered to remove the detox products from the shelves and display point-of-sale notices to correctly inform customers.

There has been a huge amount of backlash in recent months to 'quick fix' weight loss brands such as these, with the head doctor of the NHS condemning weight-loss advertisements and Jameela Jamil fronting a campaign against them.

After rapper Cardi B endorsed the teas, which contain ingredients akin to laxatives, Jamil wrote on Twitter: "If you want to “curb your appetite” eat some damn green vegetables or have some nutritious natural vegetable soup."

"Don’t drink these “detox” teas. You need fibre! Not something that honestly just makes you have diarrhoea the day you take it and constipates you in the long run…"

They were recalled due to the misinformed labelling, and it can't be a negative thing for young women and their mental health that action is finally being taken against them.

Hazel Wallace, better known as The Food Medic, claims that;

"Some of these detoxes are really dangerous and not healthy at all, especially some of the skinny teas," said Hazel, who is a junior doctor and a certified personal trainer. and therefore has healthcare and nutrition experience.

"Although they claim they are natural many drugs are actually from nature but it doesn’t make them naturally good for you. Your liver does the detoxing for your body you don’t need a green tea to detox,’ she said.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

A post shared by Marine (@jveuxuneviehealthy) on

Wallace also commented on senna leaves, a laxative which leads to dehydration;

"Some of these skinny teas have laxatives which we actually use as doctors to prescribe to people who are severely constipated, so clearly you are going to lose weight if you not absorbing any of the nutrients and its just passing through your system."

"This can cause so much damage to your digestive system, you lose water, you lose nutrients and you can damage the gut lining."

A petition from Jamil has been signed 138,000 times already, asking for celebrities to be banned from endorsing weight loss products.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

A post shared by Kylie (@kyliejenner) on

The Kardashians especially have endorsed numerous weight-loss products, gaining huge criticism from Jameela Jamil especially as well as healthcare professionals. Many have even claimed that they encourage body dysmorphia.

Detox teas have previously faced backlash after a string of unplanned pregnancies happened when the effectiveness of the contraceptive pill was reduced due to the laxative effects in the detox teas.

Be extremely wary of what you're consuming in terms of nutrition, weight-loss is about health, exercise and a balanced diet, not running to the loo every ten minutes.

Keep an eye out for valid healthcare professionals' advice on the matter, and make sure your emotional and mental health is also prioritised.

Nicki Minaj has come out in support of Ariana Grande after her argument with Grammy producer led to her cancelling her performance and appearance at the awards.

Minaj has blasted producer Ken Ehrlich for "bullying her for seven years" just days after the Thank U, Next singer called him out for "lying" about her.

The Queen rapper's comments come after she pulled out of a BET Experience performance when the network made fun of her for losing out to Cardi B at the awards.

She wrote on Twitter; "I pissed off the same man Ariana just called out for lying. Grammy producer Ken. I was bullied into staying quiet for seven years out of fear, but I’ll tell my fans the real on the next episode of #QueenRadio, they deserve the truth."

The Good Form rapper has not won a Grammy in her 16-year music career, which is a big surprise considering how successful she's been as a female rapper in a typically male business.

Sex and relationship blogger, Oloni, questioned her lack of accolades, saying; "Nicki Minaj has been at the top of her game for way too long to not have had a Grammy. I don’t know what white man from the boards she pissed off."

Minaj responded by thanking her fans: "Whether I read it or not, I felt it. From the bottom of my heart. I love you so much. So so so so much. Stay tuned."

Ariana also put Ehrlich on blast last week after there was a disagreement over her song choice. On Thursday the star spoke out about the situation, calling out Ehrlich for "lying" about her to the Associated Press.

He said; “As it turned out when we finally got the point where we thought maybe it would work, she felt it was too late for her to pull something together for sure. And it’s too bad. She’s a great artist. And I’d love to get her in the show this year.”

Ari wasn't too pleased:

She called bullsh*t on his statements, responding on Twitter;

"I offered three different songs. It’s about collaboration. It’s about feeling supported. It’s about art and honesty. Not politics. Mot doing favours or playing games. It’'s just a game."

"I’m sorry but that’s not what music is to me," she concluded, basically saying Thank U, Next. "Passed a Grammy’s bus with my face on it typing those." SASS KWEEN.

She later posted; "Hope that helps everyone understand my decision. ‘I am still grateful for the acknowledgement this year." She went on to win Best Pop Vocal Album for Sweetener.

Nicki is 100 percent team Ariana, that's for sure.

Rap star and all-round hilarious legend Cardi B exploded at Instagram fans last night before disabling her profile altogether. We're DEVO.

The artist went on a rage-filled rant over the negative comments surrounding her Grammy Awards win; she was the first female solo artist to win Best Rap Album.

"Number one album as well. I worked my ass off, locked myself in the studio for three months then went to sleep in my bed for four days straight – pregnant," she said.

The star then deleted her entire Instagram profile, refusing to take any of the haters online. She made sure to thank her baby daughter Kulture in her Grammy acceptance speech, because her pregnancy gave her the motivation to finish the album.

"When I found out I was pregnant, my album wasn’t complete, I had three songs done. I had to shoot videos while I was still not showing. It was very long nights."

She posted a video thanking her fans and organisations for every single award she'd ever won, explaining that each is unique and special; "‘This sh*t is crazy," she said. "Every award is special to me, from Grammys, AMAs, Billboards, Nickelodeon, awards I get in another motherf*cking country, I don’t give a f*ck."

We hope the online community don't ruin her win for her, it's well-deserved and she's made HISTORY as a woman. Fair play, Cardi, you do you.

Lady Gaga sure knows how to handle a dodgy interviewer, but watching her absolutely roast Ryan Seacrest alive on the Grammys red carpet pre-show has us majorly cringing on his behalf.

E!'s Ryan Seacrest interviewed Gaga alongside her Shallow co-writers Mark Ronson, Andrew Wyatt, and Anthony Rossomando, and it got painfully awkward way too fast.

He first congratulated the songstress on her Grammy win for Best Song Written for Visual Media in the non-televised ceremony, and then asked her details about her upcoming performance at the Academy Awards with Bradley Cooper.

"Next it is the Oscars, and a live performance with Bradley Cooper," said Seacrest, before handing the microphone to the singer without asking her an actual question.

The 32-year-old star mouthed yes, that she would be singing opposite Cooper, but the Joanne artist had no interest in sharing any more information on the matter.

A microphone dance ensues which has us on the floor; come ON Ryan, step it up. We have to wonder if something happened between them before, because Gaga looks like she is the farthest thing from his fan.

"You're like, 'Answer my question, but I'm not asking one,'" joked Gaga. While the initial interaction was awkward enough for us all, the interview ended on a friendly note. Thank GAWD.

Ryan cut to commercial after the pair hugged, which looked as if Gaga just did it to finally put an end to the painful experience.

Seacrest was inquiring about the Oscars, and asked about the path to all the awards. "How long did it take to write the song?," the Live With Kelly and Ryan co-host asked, referencing Shallow.
