Did You Hear?

:: It seems like Jay-Z‘s NYC concert is no longer! The rapper was scheduled to perform at the Ed Sullivan Theatre in Times Square on July 8, but the city has denied the concert approval due to concern over fireworks and terrorism over the upcoming holiday weekend. [NY Post]

:: Many have critiqued Kanye West‘s latest album Yeezus, but the best review has to come from Lou Reed! The rock legend attributed some of the tracks to farting and calls it a “synth orchestra.” Truly poetic. [SPIN]

:: Rihanna took a little break from her world tour to sing karaoke at a spot in Cologne, Germany. She sang No Doubt‘s “Don’t Speak” and Kings of Leon‘s “Sex On Fire” along with her friends. [TMZ]

:: A new exhibition has opened in London’s Jewish Museum in tribute to the late Amy Winehouse. The new project will showcase the singer’s tokens from her childhood and adult days, including her first guitar and her first Grammy. [NME]
