    Drew Carey’s Emotional Tribute to Murdered Ex-Fiancee

    Drew Carey‘s still reeling over the murder of his ex-fiancee, Amie Harwick, who he’s calling a “beautiful person who didn’t deserve to die like she did” … in his first heartbreaking public tribute to her. Carey opened up about Harwick on his weekly SiriusXM show, calling his engagement to her the “best relationship of my life.” “The Price is Right” host got very emotional talking about his love for Amie — even after their breakup — and the special connection they had over music. He shared a special setlist for his radio show … one he’d made specifically for her. It included “Can’t Take My Eyes Off You” and “Dedicated to the One I Love.” Drew also touched on Amie’s alleged murderer, saying she was killed by an ex-boyfriend who had been stalking her for about 10 years … even when she was in a relationship with Carey. He says Harwick’s ex “finally got her.” As you know … Gareth Pursehouse has been arrested and charged with Harwick’s murder. Cops say he attacked her in her home, causing her to fall to her death from a third-story balcony. Harwick had filed for restraining orders against him nearly a decade ago, but it’s believed he may have had contact with her at a recent work event. Carey ended his tribute to Harwick by thanking musicians who touch people like him and Amie, and saying “I loved her very much.” He then played his setlist for her, and says he might not be back on the radio program for a while as he recovers from the tragedy.

    Why Olivia Rodrigo Fans Think She’s Pulling A Taylor Swift Year

    A viral TikTok presents evidence and ‘hidden messages’ to suggest Olivia Rodrigo could be following up ‘Sour’ with a second album soon. Here’s how this relates to Taylor Swift! Fans are hoping that Olivia Rodrigo and Taylor Swift not only share the same talent for writing heartbreaking lyrics, but putting out music fast, too. T-Swift fans will recall that Taylor, 31, dropped her albums Folklore and Evermore within less than five months of one another in 2020, and a viral TikTok suggests that Olivia, 18, could be following the same fast trajectory after the pop industry’s newest alpha dropped Sour on May 21. The evidence stars with the name of Olivia’s album, Sour. In the aforementioned TikTok, user @gibbybender shared a photo of Olivia biting into a bag of Sour Patch Kids, and then a box from Olivia’s collaboration with the candy brand. The TikTok proceeds to zoom in on the candy brand’s famous catchphrase — yes, you probably already know it — “Sour Then Sweet.” So, fans thought that the next album could be called “Sweet,” but they had more evidence than just candy. “Why weren’t any of the love songs she wrote included on sour ??,” the TikTok user then wrote, and pulled up a screenshot of the unreleased songs listed on the Disney star’s Genius page. Many of these songs were written amid quarantine in 2020. “But who would be crazy enough to release 2 albums in a short time and hide secret messages?,” the TikTok user added, and cut to a photo of Olivia and Taylor goofing around together (Olivia originally shared the picture on May 11). The TikTok user then showed what she meant by “secret messages” by pulling up a promo photo for Olivia’s music video Good 4 U. Olivia was standing by a locker with the number “514” […]

    Nicki Minaj’s Rosa Parks Line Was No Disrespect, Timing

    Exclusive TMZ.com Nicki Minaj teased a new song invoking Rosa Parks‘ name — on the eve of the legendary civil rights icon’s birthday — but the Queen didn’t plan to flex when she did and meant no disrespect either. Sources connected to the femcee tell TMZ … Nicki’s aware of the heat she’s been catching from folks after releasing a snippet of a track she’s been working on called “Yikes” — which includes the line, “All you bitches Rosa Parks // Uh oh, get your ass up.” Waiting for your permission to load the Instagram Media. Some people found it humorous, but lots of others didn’t … and actually thought it was a slap in the face of a civil rights legend, who would’ve turned 107 Tuesday. Fact is … we’re told Nicki was NOT in any way, shape or form attempting to diss the great Mrs. Parks — she was just using her in what she thought was a clever metaphor aimed at her haters. It’s about as simple as that … our sources say it wasn’t a slight at all. Getty As for the date — again, right before Rosa’s born day — we’re told Nicki didn’t arrange that on purpose. It was a coincidence and in hindsight … we’re told maybe bad timing. Our sources say Nicki was excited to give her fans new tunes, and everything came together by chance. We’re told Nicki would never undermine the work Rosa did, and she hopes her fans know that too.

    Kodak Black Will Appeal 46-Month Prison Sentence

    Exclusive Getty Kodak Black is pushing for a lighter prison sentence because he thinks the judge unfairly threw the book at him. The rapper’s attorney, Bradford Cohen, tells TMZ … they’ll be filing legal docs soon appealing the 46 months he got in his federal gun case. They’re looking to get several months cut off that time, and here’s why. Cohen says Kodak shouldn’t have been classified as a prior convicted felon at sentencing. He says Kodak’s previous guilty pleas didn’t result in convictions — because under those deals there would be NO conviction on his record … provided he met all the terms. It’s a technicality, but nonetheless Kodak believes that error opened the door for a harsher sentence. We broke the story … Kodak will likely be serving out his time in a federal prison in Kentucky, and as of now, he’s slated to be free again on or around Aug. 14, 2022. If his appeal is successful though, his team believes he could be out in late 2021. Of course, this is all under the assumption Kodak can stay out of trouble behind bars … which ain’t always easy to do.

    Justin Bieber Buys Kobe Bryant Tribute Art

    Exclusive TMZ.com Justin Bieber is adding to his growing cartoon art collection … with a tribute to Kobe Bryant … complete with imagery of the Black Mamba balling out with the Lakers.

    Justin Bieber Crashes Kanye West’s Sunday Service

    Play video content Kanye West has linked up with another A-list celeb who’s just as religious as he is … one Justin Bieber, who put his talents to good use at Sunday Service. The Biebs was a special guest this weekend at Kanye’s latest gathering, which appears to have migrated indoors after almost a full year of outdoor get-togethers. At one point, Kim filmed Justin giving the crowd a taste of his crooning voice … they loved it. Sounds like Justin’s singing the opening lines to Marvin Sapp‘s gospel hit, “Never Would Have Made It,” which was actually remixed by Teyana Taylor on her album that Ye produced. Full circle! Anyway, it’s pretty interesting … Justin and Ye are definitely the pillars of Christianity and faith these days when it comes to the mainstream music scene, so you would’ve figured it was just a matter of time before they met up in a creative setting like this. Mission accomplished.

    Shawn Wasabi Reveals How ‘Nostalgia’ From 2000’s Wanted To Feel ‘16 Again’

    You’ve probably heard Shawn Wasabi’s remix of ‘Clear’ on repeat, which has become TikTok’s viral audio of May. It’s actually a track from 2016 — the multi-faceted music artist has a new song out, inspired by late 2000’s club music! Once again, Shawn Wasabi is finding himself at the center of viral attention thanks to the fact that his 2016 remix of the Pusher track “Clear” has found its way into the upper echelon of TikTok sounds, making it now one of the most “Shazamed” songs ever (No. 16, to be exact). But you may remember Shawn on YouTube six or so years ago — especially his hands. They dazzled tens of millions of YouTube viewers as they flew across a rainbow-lit controller equipped with 64 buttons that he co-invented, with each button producing a unique sample from the other, called the Midi 64 Fighter. It was like watching Mozart play a piano of the future, an analogy that can only be understood by watching his video for “Marble Soda” below, a mashup that used over 150 samples and put Shawn on the map (and has given him over 35 million YouTube views). That was in 2015. While Shawn has gone on to focus on more music endeavors — like releasing his debut album, MANGOTALE, amid the pandemic and regularly producing beats for other artists — the 25-year-old producer decided to revisit his passion for toying around with samples in his most recent single, “i dip,” that came out on March 25. [embedded content] Shawn said the creative process that went into making “i dip” was “a combination” of “nostalgia and having fun,” just like how he “used to produce back in the day where [he] was just taking samples and finding ways to manipulate them,” the Los Angeles-based music […]

    Tekashi 6ix9ine Plans to Leave NYC After Prison with

    Exclusive TMZ.com Tekashi 6ix9ine plans to get the hell outta dodge once he’s released from prison and bolster his security detail like no rapper ever before … but it’s going to be easier said than done. The rapper’s still months away from becoming a free man, but he’s already looking toward his exit strategy … according to sources close to him. We’re told once he’s out of lockup, he’s bailing on Brooklyn, where he was born and raised, and hopes to live far away from NYC. This decision is primarily based on his safety, but every move 69 makes will have to be approved by the federal probation department … part of his sentence includes being monitored after his release. Regardless, our sources say Tekashi will be putting security measures in place right away to keep people from knowing his location, but even if they find him … he’ll be protected by multiple bodyguards. As for where his security team will come from, we’re told the rapper only wants legit former law enforcement officers or ex-military who are licensed to carry firearms … absolutely nobody with any sort of gang affiliation. Ideally, we’re told 6ix9ine would like to leave New York and live with family out of state … in a home with “Fort Knox-like security.” Backgrid It’s unclear how he plans to bring this all together, especially since some of his former bodyguards have said no amount of money is worth it to protect Tekashi. One more thing … our sources say the rapper is committed to getting in the studio to complete the records in his music deal as soon as possible once he’s out, but he’s not planning on live performances. The reasoning — it wouldn’t be safe for a snitch to try something like that for […]

    Rouxx Teams With Mod Sun & A Hot Pink Casket For The Dopest Experiences’ Ever

    With  ‘good friends’ and the most colorful casket ever, Rouxx delivers an anthem for misfits everywhere, and he tells HL how the ‘stars aligned’ on this video with Mod Sun. Not even death will stop Rouxx’s rebellious spirit. At the start of “LO$ERS,” the new video from the Los Angeles native, Rouxx lies in state in what appears to be a casket stolen from Barbie’s dream funeral home. He pops back to life to deliver a middle-finger declaration for anyone who would deny him or his fellow “LO$ERS” from living life the way they’d want to. “Cheers to the years / living without fears / I’m gonna do it all while I’m here,” Rouxx sings right before Mod Sun drops in, and the chorus takes it up a notch. “You can say we’re losers / but we’re never gonna change.” “We really wanted to nail the line ‘one foot on the ground and the other in the grave’ and came up with using a coffin,” Rouxx shares with HollywoodLife. After he and director Tony Tomasino scoured the Internet for a hot pink casket, they found one available right near the video’s set. “I swear, it’s like the stars aligned in every possible way with this song,” adds Rouxx. Helping him bring this project to life is a handful of close friends: Mod Sun (“I actually went on my first tour with him when I was 17 with his old band”) and a handful of “LO$ERS” (The whole family showed up for the video and absolutely crushed”). Rouxx told HollywoodLife over email how this video came to be, how Mod helped make it “the dopest” experience ever, and what fans can expect from Rouxx by the end of 2021. Spoiler Alert: he’s dropping an EP, one that’ll make any “loser” feel […]
