Pitbull Says Donald Trump Didn't Understand "Power of Latinos"

Pitbull doesn’t think Donald Trump understood the “power of Latinos” when he made disparaging comments about Mexican immigrants during his presidential candidacy announcement last month. The Cuban rapper gave Billboard his thoughts on the controversy. He says his “mom used to say the two biggest diseases in the world are greed and ignorance.” Pitbull says he doesn't think Donald is ignorant, but he also doesn’t think the mogul really understood what he was saying. “[He didn’t understand] how we’re always united, and how we truly respect this country way too much; we respect the liberty it gives us to control…

Ed Sheeran Takes British Publication to Task for Posting Article in Which Singer Morrissey Slams Him

Even though Ed Sheeran is busy preparing for his headlining gig at London's Wembley Stadium tonight, he still seems to have plenty of time to tweet at a certain British publication that he thinks is being unfair to him.

There are no surprise success stories...we are now in the era of marketed pop stars...we are force-fed such as Ed Sheeran and Sam Smith, which at least means that things can’t possibly get any worse." Ed replied,…

Harry Styles Takes a Tumble on Stage

Man down! Harry Styles took a tumble on stage during the kick-off of One Direction’s North American On the Road Again tour in San Diego last night. The fall happened as the group was performing “Through the Dark,” and the whole thing was caught on tape -- from various angles.  Harry tries to drag his microphone across the stage, but it gets caught on something and pulls him backwards. The crowd of mainly young girls screams as he hits the ground, but Harry and his band mates just laugh it off. The heartthrob wasn’t injured, aside from a bruised ego.…
