French police officials have arrested American rap singer Chris Brown following a rape accusation, AP has reported.

Closer initially reported that a 24-year-old woman alleged Brown raped her after meeting him in a nightclub on 15 January in France.

The same woman is also claiming that one of Brown's acquaintances abused her.

This isn't the first time the 29-year-old has been accused of sexual violence or violent crime.

The singer dated Rihanna back in 2009, and the pair were brought into the spotlight after an argument left the Umbrella singer covered in bruises and facial injuries as a result of Brown's rage.

Brown has spoken of the incident, claiming after he saw the image of her injured face that he, "felt like a f*cking monster".

Pitchfork also reported in 2017 that a woman claimed she was seriously sexually assaulted in the rapper's home, and sued him as a result of her trauma.

Prepare the throne; Azealia Banks has officially declared herself 'The Queen of Ireland' after arriving to her gig in Dublin via…FERRY. Ok then, your highness.

The 212 rapper was forced to get the boat after storming off an Aer Lingus flight last night.

The 27-year-old seemed pretty confused after trying to change her travel arrangements, asking her Insta following if Ryanair and Aer Lingus were the same airline.

She claimed she had been given clearance to fly with Aer Lingus, whatever that means, according to Dublin Live.

Calling herself "Queen of Ireland", she ranted:

"I've been asleep, and I woke up to some excellent news. It's out, I'm the Queen of Ireland! I never knew I was the Queen of Ireland!" We never knew either, henny.

She continued;

"Aren't you happy to have such a Queen like me? Oh my God, the first black queen of Ireland! I really just woke up in the Irish Spring and the girls can't take it." She wasn't done yet…

"I got the pot of gold, b*tch. I've got the pot of gold, and I'm not even from here! Now wait, until I do this sold out f***ing show. Y'all b***hes are gonna see who the f***ing Queen of Ireland is." 

Understandably, she got a fair few angry messages in her inbox, but Banks said she was sick of the "oompa loompa crazy looking b***hes". Oh my.

"The girls have scurvy, they're like vitamin deficient, they need some calcium tablets and some Camaraderie soap. Anyways, I'm back on the Chardonel (wine)." We Celts are just very pale, and can't do much about it unforch.

She enlisted the Notorious Conor McGregor for support, sharing a screenshot of a message, where she wrote; "Conor help they are bullying me".

Banks got into a massive row on Monday morning with a female cabin crew member, after boarding a flight from Gatwick to Dublin airport. 

Aer Lingus confirmed that the rapper left the 10.55am flight from Gatwick but declined to comment on her allegations.

They have released a statement following the incident.

They said: "Aer Lingus can confirm that two guests scheduled to fly on 10:55am flight from London Gatwick to Dublin (EI233) this morning disembarked themselves prior to departure."

"The guests in question got off the plane safely of their own accord, while all other guests remained on board…Aer Lingus has a strict no-tolerance policy towards disruptive guest behaviour.

"The safety and security of our guests and crew remains our first priority."

Azealia, poor little divil, said she was 'treated like a wild animal' in the lengthy post, portraying the incident as her 'travel day from hell'.

Banks plays a sold-out show at the Academy on Abbey Street tonight, that should be an interesting one to say the least…

Ariana Grande OWNED 2018, there is absolutely zero question about that.

It's looking like 2019 will be yet another year of the Ari, after she released her pink-infused Tokyo themed music video for 7 Rings. 

"Whoever said money can't solve your problems, must not have had enough money to solve 'em. They say, "Which one?" I say, "Nah, I want all of 'em" = The life we both want and deserve.

It's a badass anthem of female empowerment, and touches on her past heartbreak and current happiness as a single, but powerful woman. YAS GURL.

The track is an ode to her best friends, and the rhythm and lyrics are inspired by The Sound of Music's classic tune My Favourite Things.

"Wearing a ring, but ain't gon' be no 'Mrs', bought matching diamonds for six of my bitches. I'd rather spoil all my friends with my riches, think retail therapy's my new addiction," she croons. GET IT HENNY.

"Been through some bad shit, I should be a sad b*tch. Who woulda thought it'd turn me to a savage?" she sings, on top of a kitchen island, looking INCREDIBLE.

She's seeing the world through rose-tinted glasses, it would seem. From sexy ensembles abundant to unreal feminist themes while dancing ironically in a kitchen setting, the video is set to be a hit.

Let's examine the best Easter egg aspects to the video, for scientific purposes only. Naturally, her fans have gone WILD over the GRRL power video, with glitter and pink everywhere to be seen.

She embraces her wealth, suggesting that in fact, money can buy her happiness and retail therapy can help her to recover from break-ups. Why not, gal. Why not.

Ariana was definitely inspired by the hip-hop industry, her glamorous pink fur coat is sure to inspire fashion trends, and her new-found confidence at her hard-earned cash is reminiscent of male rappers.

Memes are also sure to be hoppin' online, we're seeing some absolute gems already:

1. A Rap Goddess is born

Ari raps now? The Sweetener songstress makes her love for the finer things in life well known in the video.

From "lashes and diamonds" to "ATM machines" and "breakfast at Tiffany's," Ari lives the high life on her own terms and her own earnings.

True Arianators will notice that the intro for 7 Rings is suspiciously similar to the one included in the music video for Thank U, Next. Our gal-pal Ari was dropping hints WEEKS ago.

2. It's a Squad Session

Her best friends joined in on the video action and are all featured as "six of my b*tches." 

Ariana gifted these six lucky women to Tiffany & Co. rings on a day out in New York City, hence their starring roles.

She revealed on Twitter that the inspiration happened on a "pretty rough day in NYC", after which her besties brought her to Tiffany for "way too much champagne". That's our regular Saturday, sure.

 Ariana shared at the time. "On the way back to the studio, Njomza was like, 'Bitch, this gotta be a song lol.' So we wrote it that afternoon."

3. Mac Miller's best friend has a cameo

Singer-songwriter Njomza was a close friend of the late rapper, and Ari's ex-boyfriend. The pair frequently collaborated, and Njomza made sure to perform at Miller's tribute concert last October.

Ari gifted him with one of the six rings, presumably as a nod to their paralleling loss.

4. A gal's best friend is her dog

Ariana's doggo Toulouse is renowned in the celebrity pooch world, and even ended up making an appearance in one scene of the video because he "literally wouldn't leave" while filming.

Attention seeker much?

5. The signature ponytail gets a role

Grande's go-to hairdo had to get a shout out, it's been her guiding light since she released her latest album, which rocketed up the charts.

After dying her hair red for years on Nickelodeon's Victorious, she was compelled to use hair extensions to cover up the damage.

She's now embracing her longer-than-life tresses, with the lyric; "You like my hair? / Gee thanks, just bought it…" 

7 Rings marks the second single from Grande's upcoming album, thank u, next, after Imagine was released.

The album marks her new ability to drop music whenever she wants, a hip-hop trait which has been predominantly used by male rappers, and made famous by Beyoncé.

The album is sure to be as big a hit as Sweetener, the more amazing girl-power music from Princess Ari, the better.

Legendary rapper Snoop Dogg has melted hearts across the world after offering to adopt an abandoned doggo who was named after him.

The Staffordshire Bull Terrier, named Snoop, was left isolated in Stoke-On-Trent and was caught on CCTV after being cruelly deserted by the couple.

The poor little pet attempted to climb back into his owner's car but didn't succeed, and the heartbreaking footage caught the attention of Snoop Dogg himself.

He said he simply can't stand by, telling the Daily Star that there's "always room for another dog in Casa de Snoop."

The 47-year-old commented that;

"If he really needed a home then he has one with us. But I don’t think there is going to be any shortage of loving homes after all the exposure he has got."

The pooch could end up living in the Doggfather's Los Angeles mansion after the RSPCA shared the footage.

The Inspector of the RSPCA, Natalie Perehovsky, spoke to Good Morning Britain last week about the footage of the couple who unclipped his lead and ran away:

"This is heartbreaking, it’s the way he runs after the owner — he clearly loved who was there. He was obviously distressed," she commented on the ruthlessness of some owners.

She said: "I don’t know what was going through their mind when they did that. It could be the expense, it could be family changes, there’s hundreds of reasons."

"But there’s places that help people, you can take him to charities or dog homes. There’s no excuse."

Fair play Snoop, he even donates money to dog charities and has his own French Bulldog.

Adorable.

So back in February of 2018, which seems like decades ago at this stage, Heidi Klum declared that she'd be down to f*ck with none other than DRAKE himself.

Imagine that combo? We'd be here for it. Unfortunately, Drake texted her "a week too late", and she ended up ghosting him.

She has now apologised for her Casper move, and it's such a gas. She's the gift that keeps on giving.

Back when Klum was single, she went on The Ellen Show and played a game of 'Who'd You Rather' with Queen Ellen DeGeneres herself.

It was revealed that the Canadian rap god reached out to the 45-year-old model, but she didn't reply. 'But why??' I hear you ask.

Well, she'd met her now-fiancé; Tom Kaulitz. Case closed.

She spoke to Ellen yesterday about her now-infamous ghosting of Drake, saying;

“I said I’m sorry, because I know I made a huge wave after I was here, and he just made that face,” Klum imitated the emoji which the 32-year-old rapper replied with.

Ellen, being the sh*t-stirring wizard that she is, responded, “That’s all he responded? Oh, he’s mad.”

Poor Drakey. You snooze, you lose, henny.

Cardi B's ex-husband Offset is desperately trying to get his wife back, after posting an emotional message to Instagram apologising for his wrongs.

The Migos rapper claims that his 'one birthday wish' is to win Cardi B back and put the cheating scandal behind them.

The couple announced their sudden split earlier this month, after it emerged that Offset was allegedly seeing a woman named Summer Bunni behind Cardi's back.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

A post shared by OFFSET (@offsetyrn) on

Offset addressed the 'I Like It' rapper directly, saying;

"We're going through a lot of things right now, a lot of things in the media. I want to apologise to you Cardi. I embarrassed you. I made you go crazy."

He confessed to his shenanigans, appearing visibly emotional during the video;

"I was partaking in activity that I shouldn't have been partaking in, and I apologise. You know what I'm saying?" 

"For breaking your heart, for breaking our promise, for breaking God's promise and being a selfish, messed up husband."

He continued, "I'm trying to be a better person. I want to get this off my shoulders. I want to get this off my back. I apologise to you Cardi. I love you."

He then spoke about the former couple's five-month-old little girl, saying; "Kulture, I want to spend Christmas with you."

"I want to be able to spend the rest of my life with you," he then said to Cardi.

"I apologise. I am sorry for what I have done to you. I didn't f*ck that girl, but I was entertaining her, you know what I'm saying? I apologise, and I love you, and I hope you forgive me."

"My birthday wish is just to have you back."

Cardi has yet to address the apology video, but is reportedly torn whether to forgive her former lover or move on.

Would you be able to trust him again though? Probs not.

Sunday’s season finale of Keeping Up with the Kardashians saw Kim open up candidly about her husband Kanye West, following the rapper's turbulent declaration that "slavery was a choice".

Despite admitting that she was "hysterically crying" when she heard her 41-year-old husband say the quote, she claims that he is of sound mind and is even "doing good".

The Kardashian star will always have his back, it seems.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

A post shared by Kanye West (@kanyewestt_official) on

She spoke about the controversial hip-hop star's antics very openly;

“When he gets ramped up, he can’t control what he says — he can’t let it go,” she said. “He loves being ramped up."

He’s like, ‘I feel powerful when I’m ramped up. I don’t want to be so suppressed. Yeah, I say crazy s—, but I’ve always said crazy s—. That’s why I’m Kanye.'”

She insists, however, that his intentions are understandable to her as his wife;

“I always know what Kanye’s intentions are and what he’s trying to say, but I also know that they’re going to write a headline and people are going assume that that’s exactly what you said and what you meant,” she continued.

“He didn’t say slavery is a choice, he was saying, ‘If you’re going to still be enslaved for another 400 years, then that’s some bulls—.’ That, as a wife, is really frustrating to see the media take everything and run with it.”

The timing was extremely unfortunate; Kris Jenner was set to appear on the Ellen DeGeneres show, who commented on the whole debacle.

“I just want to make everything better,” said Jenner, 63. “You know me. I want everybody to get along, I want everybody to be happy, I want everybody to understand one another, communicate.”

“Even thought Kanye went on TMZ this morning and made some controversial comments, my loyalty really lies with Kanye,” Jenner continued.

“It’s really my job to be there to support Kanye and be somebody in his life that offers him love and support and not criticism.”

Once the scandal was settled, Kim flew out to Wyoming to support Kanye at his album launch party.

“I am so excited to be in Wyoming for Kanye’s listening party,” she said. “After TMZ, Kanye changed his whole album. I’m just excited so many people came out to support him. … I’m glad that now we can just have fun, listen to the music and have a good time.”

“I obviously support him and will always, but he likes to speak for himself and I like to speak for myself,” she added. “As his wife, I just have to express how I feel and have those private conversations with him and help him better communicate what he has to say.”

Kim had also been working with the White House to attempt to commute 63-year-old Alice Maria Johnson's life sentence for a first time non-violent drug offence.

“My first phone call was to Ivanka [Trump]. I just felt like as a woman she would really feel for this woman the way that I connected with Alice,” Kim said. “She did and she connected me with her husband Jared Kushner, so I actually have a meeting with the president of the United States next week to discuss Alice Johnson.”

According to Kim, it was a "tricky" situation, as she disagrees with Donald Trump's polarising views.

“I’ve been so straightforward with Jared. I have different views, I was at Hillary Clinton fundraisers. So this might not be a popular opinion, but I’ll talk to whoever I need to talk to to get the job done.”

“I know we have one shot to plead our case. Knowing that someone’s life is in your hand, it’s a really scary feeling,” she added. “We have to just do justice by Alice.”

She then flew to Tennessee to meet Johnson in person, after Trump shockingly commuted her sentence.

“It’s just such a satisfying moment. To know that she’s been behind bars for 22 years and she’s now home — it’s really amazing,” she said. “Just seeing Alice with her huge family, it’s like me and my big family. If I couldn’t be with them for two decades, that would break my soul.”

“That’s what so many people don’t get. This has nothing to do with politics. F— politics,” she added. “I don’t really know anything. This is: Get in front of the person — the only person in the world that can make this decision — and try to change their mind.”

“Every time I think that I’ve had a crazy year, I live the next year and it’s even crazier. … On this journey of getting Alice out, I have learned so much about criminal justice is and really how messed up our system is,” Kim said.

"There’s so much that has to be done … now that that is in me, I can’t stop at Alice. There has to be so much more than I can do.”

Halsey and G-Eazy have reportedly called time again on their turbulent relationship on Tuesday night. This couple are serving us constant drama, we’re fully ‘nable.

This is the second time they’ve parted ways, following a brief reunion in August which clearly didn’t heal any of their original issues.

Despite a seemingly loved-up Italian holiday for the 24-year-old singer’s birthday (which at the time she called her ‘best birthday ever’) the couple’s relationship has crumbled in the mean time.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

A post shared by Amber Avery • Why Don't We (@shnackaveryy) on

The twosome no longer follow each other on social media, but G-Eazy noticeably didn’t delete his birthday message to his former love:

“Happy birthday to this one. I love you so so so much and I always will,” G-Eazy penned.

“I myself, along with millions and millions of other people appreciate you more than you’ll ever know. You’re the brightest star in the sky. So grateful to get to travel thru life with you, so happy to call you my queen. Happy birthday baby.”

In the first in a series of mysterious tweets, Halsey wrote that "happiness is not a replacement for misery. it’s an addition. pain will always be there. but that’s okay."

She continued her personal contemplation by saying that happiness and pain exist together, and happiness arrives "to assist u in carrying the weight of the pain."

She added, "now remember that u dummy," which seems to imply that she's going through a pretty painful period right now.

In her last tweet, she quotes lyrics from her new song ‘Without Me’, which seem pretty appropriate at the moment considering her romantic situation…

Most fans are presuming the break-up is because of G-Eazy’s partying ways, after last weekend he seemed more than comfortable surrounded by women at a pre-Halloween bash.

“It’s over again for now,” revealed an insider. “He was partying over the weekend and girls were all over him. He didn’t care who saw.”

She was spotted this morning on her coffee run, looking like Pink’s protégé of not giving a f*ck.

US rapper Nelly has taken to Twitter to protest his innocence after he was accused of raping a woman on his tour bus.

The singer, real name Cornell Haynes, said he is “beyond shocked” following his arrest in the early hours of Saturday morning, insisting he is a “victim of a false allegation.”

Police in Washington said they received a call from a woman at 3.48am on Saturday “to report that she was sexually assaulted by a male, who is known as the rapper Nelly”.

“The alleged assault was reported to occur on the tour bus that was parked at the listed location. Nelly had performed at the White River Amphitheatre just hours before.”

“After Patrol Officers investigated the incident, at 4.37am Nelly was taken into custody.”

Nelly has been released without charge while officers continue to investigate the claims.

He was in the middle of his US tour and had been due to perform in Dublin's Vicar Street on November 20 and 21.

We all remember Plan B, right?

The late noughties rapper who had a bunch of hits such as She Said and Prayin'?

Up to scratch? Well, he's looking very, very different these days.

The rapper hasn't been on the scene in five years and took some time off to concentrate on being a father.

But this week, he made his comeback in London and fans were totally shocked at his new look.

He actually looks like an entirely different man.

What most of you don't know is that Plan B, real name Ben Drew, is also an avid actor.

And that's his reason for losing weight and changing his body.

While filming for his movie The Sweeney back in 2012, Plan B said that his co-star Ray Winestone was the one to spark to change.

"We were talking about my character and how someone as young as me has got the part," he told The Sun.

"We were saying how I've got to be a man in his early thirties, super-smart, excels in exams, brilliant at sports and Ray looked me up and down and goes, 'Are you sure you're going to get yourself in good enough shape?'

"I thought right then and there, 'I'm going to do it'. That's the extra incentive I needed. I thought, 'I'll f**king show you, pal'."

And now, of course, Twitter is loving him:

She's just released a set of eye-catching new snaps. Taken from a recent desert-shoot, Kylie Jenner dons an array of skimpy attire, and in particular made sure to share with her fans plenty of bootytastic pics.

It's a feature that clearly her boyfriend of a year, rapper Tyga, loves. In fact, his brand-new song – Ice Cream Man – makes several references to the 18-year-old's rear-end.

"I'm ice cream man, she chunky monkey… she got a marshmallow booty, I like to sprinkle it too," the 25-year-old declares through rap. 

That's not all either. Yes, Kris Jenner please look away now – x-rated Tyga also says: "She like to f*** me, suck me, suck then f*** me."

Eeeek!

Sadly, Kylie doesn't appear in the accompanying video (though she did feature in his previous offering, Stimulated).

At least romantic Tyga does stick her likeness on the side of his ice cream van – you can watch the video below:

He only recently splashed out a cool €290,000 on a seriously swish Rolls Royce.

And, of course, he also bought his girlfriend Kylie Jenner a €300,000 Ferrari for her 18th birthday back in August.

But Tyga might have a few more car-related bills to look after next week: the brand-new Rolls Ghost was damaged while the rapper drove away from celeb-friendly LA nightclub, 1Oak.

Teenage reality TV star Ms Jenner was travelling in the vehicle with him at the time, though neither were hurt in the incident.

Although Kylie was less-than pleased with the situation: she shielded her face, seemingly in embarassment, as photographers surrounded the happy couple.

Tyga had been performing at 1Oak on the same evening, with the youngest member of the Kardashian-Jenner clan in attendance with a gaggle of friends to cheer him on.

In the aftermath, the Rolls sported some nasty scratches to the rear bumper – damage which will, no doubt, prove pricey enough to repair.
