Bae, Big Sean, and Jhene Aiko: Jhene Aiko Opens Up About How Her Relationship With Big Sean Began: "He Wanted to Take Me Out on a Date. I Had a Boyfriend, But I Still Went Just As A Fiendr @balleralert Jhene Aiko Opens Up About How Her Relationship With Big Sean Began: "He Wanted to Take Me Out on a Date. I Had a Boyfriend, But I Still Went Just As A Friend"- blogged by @lanaladonna ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Last week, JheneAiko completed a promo run in London for her newest album, ‘Trip’. While in the U.K., the singer stopped by ‘1Xtra Breakfast Show with Dotty,’ a popular radio show on the overseas network, BBC Radio. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ During the interview, Aiko discussed how her and rapper bae, BigSean became the couple we know them as today, past relationships, motherhood, and more. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ "The year that my brother passed, I had just met him[Big Sean],” she explained "And we worked on "Beware" and "I'm Gonna Be". He wanted to take me out on a date. I had a boyfriend, but I still went...just as a friend.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Sparks began to fly when their friendship began back in 2012, despite Jhene already being in a relationship. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ "I mean, I had never been courtside to a game," she jokingly added. "And he's cool. So, I told my boyfriend I'm gonna go to this game." ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Many believed that Aiko broke up with her boyfriend to pursue a relationship with Sean, but according to Jhene, their relationship was practically done before Sean even came into the picture. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Aiko’s then-boyfriend was secretly married to his baby mama (yikes!), and that’s what led to their split. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Timing played a huge role in the couple finally becoming a union. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “When I came around and was like, let’s see what he’s [Sean] talking about,” said Aiko. “He.. got a girlfriend. I took too long.” The two were playing relationship tag with one another for a while. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ All’s well that ends well though, because their stars finally aligned, and now the couple can’t seem to be able to get enough of one another.

Donald Trump, Drugs, and Friday: Jay Z Says Trump is a Joke "With All Disrespect" @balleralert Jay Z Says Trump is a Joke “With All Disrespect” – blogged by @MsJennyb (video @bbcradio1) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ On the heels of the release of his most personal album to date, Jay-Z has been sitting down for interviews to divulge his thought process throughout the making of the highly anticipated album, “4:44.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ In his most recent interview with BBC Radio 1 on Friday, JayZ discussed his views on Donald Trump after having campaigned for both BarackObama and HillaryClinton in past elections. As Trump continues to reverse Obama-era legislations, alongside Jeff Sessions, who is eager to reignite the war on drugs, Jay Z shared his thoughts on Trump and the current state of politics. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “I believe that we are resilient, especially us as black people and especially the culture. We’ve been through so much more than this guy,” he said. “This guy, I’m looking at him like, man, this is a joke, with all – I can’t even say with all due respect – with all disrespect.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “Until everyone is free, no one is free,” Jay added. “Period. That’s just a fact. We are all linked some kind of way. So if you oppress a certain people, everyone is in danger, karmically and in real life. If I’m being oppressed and you have this big, nice mansion, I’m coming inside there. That’s going to happen, that’s just how life is.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Although the country is struggling with racial injustices and increased hate crimes in the wake of the Donald Trump era, Hov believes it is something that we, as a nation and culture, can overcome. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “I don’t think that this is happening if we weren’t prepared to handle it,” he said. “I’m just looking forward to what’s next after that, because usually when things are darkest, then light is on its way. I’m not fearful.”

Jealous, Martin, and Memes: I'VE HEARD YOUR NEW SONGS JEALOUS? ED SHEERAN HAS HEARD HARRY STYLES'S NEW SONGS NEWS Ed Sheeran can write a damn good song, and Harry Styles knows that. So when the 1D alum got to work on his solo album, he decided to share some tunes with a fellow Brit. _ “[Sheeran's] one of the most talented dudes I know,” Styles recently told BBC Radio 1 Breakfast Show host Nick Grimshaw. Grimshaw shared videos of Harry's most famous fans — Sheeran, Coldplay's Chris Martin, Rita Ora, and more — asking questions about his upcoming LP, due out May 12. Sheeran wanted all the deets: “How many songs did you write, where did you make it, how long have you been making it for, and did you enjoy making it?” _ Turns out, Harry and his squad penned a whopping 70 songs (“including the little ideas”) before narrowing down the tracklist to 10 favorites like “Sign of the Times.” _ “I played [Sheeran] a couple of songs after the album was finished. He liked one that wasn't on there, so I had a little minute of like [hesitation],” Harry said, making a face. _ In between all that writing, Styles took a five-month break to shoot Dunkirk, a World War II movie that required “quite a lot” of swimming. He's THIS CLOSE to drowning in the harrowing trailer. _ “I think it was good for me,” Styles reflected. “Before all I'd thought about was stressing about what [the album] was going to be. [Dunkirk] gave me a chance to be completely a step away from it and have a real break and then also, by the end of the movie, because we were swimming so much, I was like, Oh, can I just go write some songs in the studio?” _ He may be drenched on his album cover, but it looks like this singer prefers dry land instead. _ by Deepa Lakshmin

Apparently, Butt, and Crazy: HOPEFULLY, SHAWN MENDES'S NEW SONG WILL GET HIM A DATE WITH KATY PERRY NEWS Remember when Katy Perry grabbed Shawn Mendes’s butt on a red carpet last month? Well, apparently she made quite the impression, because Mendes simply can’t wait until their next rendezvous. _ The 18-year-old called in to BBC Radio 1 this morning to chat with Nick Grimshaw about his new single, “There’s Nothing Holdin’ Me Back,” and his upcoming performance at Radio 1’s Big Weekend festival. Grimshaw graciously offered to play wingman and introduce Mendes to any other performers he may interested in dating. _ “We gotta find me a girlfriend,” Mendes agreed, and when Grimshaw asked about anyone in particular, the singer-songwriter answered, “Oh, Katy Perry, of course.” _ Hmm... wonder what Mendes’s idol (and Perry’s ex) John Mayer would think of that? _ In any case, if Mendes really wants to impress Perry, his new single is a good start. “There’s Nothing Holdin’ Me Back” is impossibly catchy and more danceable than anything in his catalog. His voice is gritty and hoarse, especially on the passionate, aggressive hook: “Oh I’ve been shaking- I love it when you go crazy- You take all my inhibitions- Baby there’s nothing holdin’ me back.” _ “There’s Nothing Holdin’ Me Back” is part of the deluxe edition of Illuminate, which Mendes re-released to include the new single. He’s slated to kick off his Illuminate World Tour in April, and will hopefully give us some epic performances of this perfectly summery new jam. _ by Madeline Roth

Clothes, Fall, and Lana Del Rey: LANA DEL REY AND THE WEEKND WANT TO TAKE OFF ALL YOUR CLOTHES' ON NEW DUET NEWS The Weeknd may be nicknamed “King of the Fall,” but put him on a Lana Del Rey song and he suddenly has summertime on the mind. _ The starry-eyed musical soulmates have reteamed for “Lust for Life,” the title track from Lana’s upcoming fourth studio album. This marks their third collaboration together, following The Weeknd’s “Prisoner” and “Stargirl Interlude.” _ The smoky, ’60s-inspired “Lust for Life” is easily their dreamiest collab to date — it sounds like how a hot summer night feels. Lana and Weeknd alternate telling each other to “take off, take off all your clothes,” and then wistfully proclaim, “They say only the good die young - That just ain’t right - ’Cause we’re having too much fun - Too much fun tonight.” _ “Lust for Life” premiered today on Mistajam’s BBC Radio 1 show. Lana spoke about the new song with MistaJam, saying, “I really felt like [The Weeknd] just added so much to it. It was the perfect track for him to join me on.” _ Lana also revealed to MistaJam that her new album has “an acoustic side” to it, including one song called “Yosemite” that’s “kind of a love song that I did all in one take.” The album also includes the previously released track “Love,” and is expected to arrive sometime this spring (hopefully in time to cure our summertime sadness). _ by Madeline Roth

Dating, Family, and Friday: Harr Arru S ne mu US HARRY STYLES'S FAUORITE ALBUM RIGHT NOW IS THE NEW HARRY STYLES ALBUM NEWS The solo debut of Harry Styles, very likely a single called "Sign of the Times," is fast approaching, so he stopped by BBC Radio 1's Breakfast Show to talk about it — and pretty much everything else, including That Hair. _ Dating, style, family, hair: No topic was off-limits during the interview, of which British Vogue highlighted the best parts. Immediate takeaways: Styles totally used to cyberstalk his crushes (which isn't that hard, considering how he's been romantically linked to Taylor Swift and Kendall Jenner); he snores; you shouldn't ask to take a selfie with him if you run into him in the bathroom (seriously); and his long locks were repurposed for a wig after he lopped them off last year. _ "I felt very naked for a while," he told host Nick Grimshaw regarding his infamous haircut. "I was like, 'Yeah, I’ve gotta shave my hair off.' It wasn’t a hard decision. It got made into a wig." _ Styles also gushed about his forthcoming record, naturally, which he's happy to come out of "hibernation" for: "We just wanted to make what we wanted to listen to, and that has been the most fun part for me about making the whole album." _ "In the least weird way possible," he continued, "it's my favorite album to listen to at the moment." He stressed that making the music you're excited about — as opposed to music that'll potentially guarantee success and acclaim — is a priority for him, and that's why he's so stoked about the new material. _ "Sign of the Times" drops on FRIDAY, and Styles will perform as the musical guest on Saturday Night Live on April 15. You can hear the full interview when it debuts on BBC Radio 1 Friday. _ by Hilary Hughes
