The Morning Mix: Nicki Minaj Letting Rihanna Hog The Spotlight (For Now)
Did You Hear?
:: Rihanna and Nicki Minaj’s long-delayed video for Nicki’s track “Fly” will finally premiere Memorial Day weekend. “We both kind of dropped [our albums] at the same time,” says Nicki. “So she has a lot of [songs] in rotation and I want to let her stuff have a moment and do its thing, dominate radio.” Aw, sweet of Barbie to look out for her buddy first. [Rap-Up]
:: Listen to The Crystal Method remix Daft Punk’s “The Grid” from the TRON: Legacy soundtrack. [Spin]
:: Christina Aguilera has finally joined Twitter, so now you can at-reply @TheRealXtina and tell her directly that she’s ripping off Gaga/Gaga’s ripping off her instead of debating it in the comments section. [Pink Is The New Blog]
:: Thanks to all of you who have downloaded “Friday” for what we’re assuming is ironic purposes, Rebecca Black – or at least Ark Music Factory – is making bank. [Vulture]
