Kanye West has gone on another rant. During his "Yeezus" show in Arizona, Ye blasted the Grammys for giving his latest album, Yeezus two nominations. The rapper said, "I'm 36 years old and I have 21 Grammys. That's the most Grammys of any 36-year-old. Out of all of those 21 Grammys, I've never won a Grammy against a white artist. ... So when the Grammys nominations come out, and Yeezus is the top one or two album on every single list, but only gets two nominations from the Grammys, what are they trying to say? Do they think that I wouldn’t notice? Do they think that, someway, that I don't have the power to completely diminish all of their credibility at this moment?" He added, "But no, no. Only positive energy, only positive vibes. But when you see me talking about what people are doing when I say 'marginalized,' when I say 'boxed in,' when I say 'hold back,' when I say 'people are afraid of the truth,' that's one example right in front of you. And people come to me and they congratulate me on those two nominations. F*ck those nominations."

Katy Perry has revealed that she is content with being the positive girl among her fellow pop stars.

When you try to market yourself like some supernatural figurine who can't be f*cked with, I always resort back to Scripture: Pride comes before a fall." She added, "I feel I'm the positive girl among my pop peers, but I'm OK with that. I'm happy I'm the light."
