:: B.o.B says the ongoing Iggy Azalea vs. Azealia Banks beef is none of his beeswax, even though he shares a label connection with Azalea. (He’d have to be out of his mind to get involved). [MTV]

    My advice to Lorne? Lorne, you should know by now the power of celebrity pop-stars. If Riri%u2019s absence bothered you so much then I%u2019d advise you invest in musical holograms for future purposes. I hear everyone is doing it.

    I%u2019m guessing holograms don%u2019t get sick, probably don%u2019t require a dressing room filled with fancy water/candy/groupies, and they attend rehearsals promptly without attitude.
    So get on that, and while you%u2019re at it, cut some slack for Riri. She%u2019s a gift to this planet, and her health is more important than your silly show.
