Did You Hear?

:: Zayn Malik’s departure from One Direction rocked the pop world a few months ago, and now Liam Payne is now speaking up on the real reason why. The band member reportedly stated that Zayn wanted to spend more time with his fiancée, Little Mix’s Perrie Edwards. [Daily Mail]

:: Congratulations to Ed Sheeran, The Weeknd and Shawn Mendes who are leading the pack for the 2015 MuchMusic Video Awards. Look out for the ceremony on June 21 in Toronto. [THR]

:: If you ever dreamed of having Lil Wayne or Wiz Khalifa DJ your next party, it can now happen — with a hefty price, of course. Weezy reportedly ask for $60k, while the “See You Again” rapper requests $25k. [TMZ]

:: Mariah Carey has had a somewhat steady reign throughout her decades-long career, but that may change in 2015. Label boss L.A. Reid doesn’t think achieving a No. 1 hit nowadays is not realistic. “Mariah Carey made her first hit record in 1991. To even be on the radio at this point in her career is a huge accomplishment, because radio doesn’t cater to veteran artists or legends,” he said.
