The Kid Laroi Details Tattoo Swap With Post Malone, Teases New Album: ‘It’s My Most Personal Project So Far’
Shirley Ju The Kid Laroi’s “Stay,” his monster hit with Justin Bieber, is creeping up on 1 billion on-demand streams, per data from Luminate, with its official music video racking 546 million views on YouTube and counting. To say that Laroi has officially arrived would be an understatement.At only 18 years old, the Australian singer-songwriter has accomplished what many musicians aspire to inin a lifetime: signed to Columbia Records, whose roster includes Adele, Bruce Springsteen and Harry Styles, he’s been nominated for a Grammy, performed on “Saturday Night Live” (alongside Miley Cyrus for his breakout hit, “Without You”) and collaborated with his idol, the late Juice WRLD.Laroi’s most recent release, “Thousand Miles,” written about his current girlfriend before they started dating, made another big splash when it debuted in April, thanks in large part to a TikTok promoting the record, which featured images of Laroi’s former manager Scooter Braun, implying that Braun was a “mistake.” (Braun was in on the hoax, he later revealed; and Laroi has since parted with his most recent representative, Adam Leber.) Variety spoke with Laroi in Culver City, Calif., where he was performing virtually for Kid Cudi’s Encore app.

'Wish I could've been there’ Brian May's frustration that he couldn’t help Taylor Hawkins
Queen legend Brian May spoke on the bond he had with his "brother".Taylor had died in Bogota, Columbia, in March while on tour with his group, aged just 50 - and Brian, who had been one of the last of his friends to speak to him, revealed that he will be sorely missed.Brian's second solo album, Another World, will be re-released imminently for the first time since 1998 and it contains a track with Taylor as the drummer.This prompted him to address the history of their friendship and how he felt about the loss."God, I wish I could have been there to help him through that, whatever it was," Brian exclaimed of his demise."[When] Taylor stepped in to do a track, [he] gave me a wonderful injection of energy, friendship, joy and light - and [now] he's gone... which is awful," he lamented.Brian confirmed that the collaboration had been one of the first album sessions Taylor had ever done."He'd only just joined the Foo Fighters, he was just a boy really and he was the biggest Queen fan in the world, which took me by surprise," he recalled fondly.He added that Taylor's endorsement of the group had introduced them to an even wider audience and made them "very cool to a lot of people"."He was an encyclopedia about Queen, absolutely incredible, he knew everything we'd ever done," Brian added in amazement."He became like a brother.
'Most dangerous drug trafficker in world' hunted in military op claims he is innocent
cocaine worth a whopping two billion dollars and was stung after an operation involving 500 soldiers has claimed he is innocent.Dairo Antonio 'Otoniel' Úsuga David, 50, allegedly headed Colombia's ruthless “Gulf Clan” and was the most wanted person in the country before his arrest.The huge operation involved 22 helicopters and years of cooperation between America’s Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) and top Columbian cops.It also led to the arrest of 90 suspected cartel members who were involved in the gang and linked to the senseless murders of hundreds of Columbia’s security forces.But Úsuga pled not guilty to drug trafficking charges as he made his first appearance before a federal judge on Thursday May 5.Just days after Úsuga was taken into custody, four Columbian soldiers were killed in a bloody attack blamed on the gang.The Gulf Clan has been credited with producing a whopping 30 percent of all the cocaine exported from the South American country.DEA administrator Anne Milgram held a press conference before the drug lord appeared in court.She told reporters: “The charges should send a clear message to the leaders of drug cartels around the world.“If you traffic deadly poison; if you use violence and fear to gain power; if you target law enforcement; if you destabilized countries for your profit; and if you run a drug cartel that harms the safety, health and security of the American people, then the Drug Enforcement Administration will stop at nothing to bring you to justice.”A convoy made up of five bulletproof police vehicles transported the powerful drug lord from a prison in Bogotá to a military airport, where he was given to the American officers.His eyes watered from the back of the security transport in a video
Peter Andre slams Junior's 'hater' who said he only got record deal because of him
Peter Andre has slammed a critic who lashed out at his son Junior's music career.The Mysterious Girl star hit back at the "hater", who said young Junior only got a record deal "because of who his dad is."Junior, 16, is a budding pop star who is following in his father's footsteps by entering into the music industry.The teen signed a major deal with Columbia Records last summer, and he's been keeping himself busy making music in the studio ever since.Junior, who is also the son of Peter's ex Katie Price, has been able to focus on crafting his future hits after finishing his GCSEs last year.It seems Junior's hard work has finally paid off as he was able to give fans a first listen to his debut single.The young artist could be seen dancing and miming along to the catchy R&B track which blasted in the studio - and fans loved it.Both of Junior's proud parents shared the clip, with Peter penning: "Could not be prouder son."However, one fan wasn't so pleased with the track.They said: "His voice has been covered over and he has only got record deal because of who his dad is" as they attached a laughing-face.Singer Peter decided to give the commenter a piece of his mind as he replied: "[sic] a haters job is to hate so I feel it’s only fair to let you do your job if you can let me do mine [heart emoji]."The person later defended themselves, insisting they weren't "being nasty".They added: "I would have just liked to have heard his voice instead of it being covered over wasn’t being nasty at all."Peter replied: "I understand you :)) trust me the kids are gonna love it. And you haven’t heard anything yet.
