Rumors spiraled over the weekend that Kanye
West reportedly compared himself to the late Nelson Mandela.
Apparently, a website called The Daily Currant published an articled
that claimed that Yeezy was "under fire" for claiming that he
will be bigger than Mandela -- who passed away last Thursday (December 5th).
According to the story, the rapper was asked about the South African icon and
said, "I am the next Nelson Mandela. I’m only 36 years old, and when
I look at everything I’ve accomplished, it’s the only comparison that makes any
sense. By the time I’m 95, I’m going to be a bigger hero than he ever
was." The interview also claimed that Ye tried to clean up his mess, saying,
"Nelson Mandela did a lot of good work, don't get me wrong. But I think
I’m on track to do something even bigger. I liberate minds with my music.
That's more important than liberating a few people from apartheid or
Lady Gaga has had her fair share of issues with Russia and now
she wants to boycott the 2014 Olympics that are set to be hosted in Russia.
Gaga appeared on the British TV show, Alan Carr's Chatty
Man and said, "I don't think that we should be going to the
Olympics at all. I don't know if my opinion is not highly regarded, in terms of
the amazing champions and people that are rehearsing and training for the
event… I mean I would never take anything away from their hard work, I just
think it is absolutely wrong for so many countries to give money and economy in
the way of a country that doesn't support gays."
Hilary Duff has admitted to being nervous about returning to the
music industry. The former Disney star also revealed that today’s female
artists can be "intimidating," saying, "It's such a
different business now. Honestly, it can be intimidating. I'm not comparing
myself to (Miley Cyrus) but a lot of the things that go on in
pop music are not me or who I am. Or not yet. Who knows what I'm going to wake
up tomorrow and feel like?" She continued, "I really just try to come
and be who I am... And one person that I think is a really good example is Taylor
Swift. She's really honest with her lyrics and her stage show isn't
like some crazy thing that's controversial. But I think what Miley Cyrus is
doing is really cool and I think she's being who she wants to be and that is
important. And so I respect that."
Rita Ora has hinted at a collab with Prince.
The British singer told The Sun that sharing the studio with the icon
was a dream come true. She explained, "I have met him (Prince) and I have
had the honor of being in the same studio with him. We messed around with some
music together and you know, I can't believe he can play so many
instruments." She added, "All I can say is we've definitely done some

Bastille frontman Dan Smith told Billboard.com
in a new interview that the band's chart-topping Modern Rock smash,
"Pompeii," was inspired directly by the ancient Roman town that was
buried by a volcanic eruption, leaving ash-covered bodies frozen in place.
Smith recalled, "I was working a crap job and thinking about those images
of those people in Pompeii -- my life was also in stasis. I imagined a
conversation between two people frozen in the same position forever. I quite
like the idea that people have been hearing it on the radio and are at
festivals jumping around, but actually it's a song about two old corpses
