UPdate …

Ye did what?! Yep, Kanye West just posted a video of himself apparently urinating on his own Grammy statuette, which is chillin’ in one of his toilets at home and being subjected to a golden shower. Hard to say for sure if this is real or not, but the imagery is striking … and gross too, we might add.

He captioned his post too and makes it clear he ain’t sorry for this, writing … “Trust me … I WONT STOP.”

Presumably, this is one of the 21 Grammys Kanye has to his name — awards he’s boasted about in the past, but which clearly don’t mean all that much to him these days.

Marvin Gaye; Ed Sheeran

*British pop star Ed Sheeran is being sued for copyright infringement for lifting parts of Marvin Gaye’s “Let’s Get It On” for his track “Thinking Out Loud.” 

The 1973 song was co-written by Ed Townsend, whose family filed a lawsuit against Sheeran in 2016, accusing him of lifting the “melody, harmony and rhythmic components” from Gaye’s track, per ABC News

Sheeran initially responded to the suit by claiming public domain gave him permission to use the chord progressions and drum patterns for “Let’s Get It On.”

During a hearing on Tuesday in front of Sony Records, Townsend’s daughter was joined by music icon George Clinton to fight for Black artists.

“These offenses aren’t just taking place in the streets against black individuals in this country. They’re taking place in the boardrooms. They’re taking place in meetings where there’s no representation,” said Keisha Rice, the attorney for Kathryn Townsend.

“Theft and bullying has been the only priority of the record labels’ agenda. It stops today, Sony, Atlantic and all the rest of them. We’re coming for our 40 acres and a mule plus and interest. And know that we’re not going to be silent. It don’t stop till my casket drop,” said Kathryn Townsend.

“Theft of the music is the new sharecroppers,” said George Clinton. “Not only do they take the music and the land back, they take the 40 acres and the mule back. They get it all from the money that’s being made from IP (intellectual property). So the artists don’t have a chance. I have 20 artists in my band who never got paid for all those samples you heard.”

The hearing for the lawsuit against Sheeran has a trial date set for Nov. 9.

Townsend’s estate is seeking songwriting credit and a portion of the profits from Sheeran’s song.

Last month, Lopez announced plans to drop her own makeup and skincare line called JLo Beauty.

The line is in collaboration with Inglot Cosmetics, and the actress/singer posted two selfies on Instagram along with the caption “Sunset glow… #JLoBeauty coming soon.”

She has not revealed much about the her beauty line. As reported by PEOPLE, according to a trademark filed with the United States Patent and Trademark Office in December 2019, JLo Beauty will offer cosmetics and skincare products.

The Bronx native previously opened up about JLo Beauty in late 2018, when Lopez told Refinery29 about developing her own skincare products.
