In the process, he shined a tiny light on what it was like to be at the 2016 Met Gala with Taylor Swift and Kanye West.

“It was great,” Idris said of the even he got to co-host with Taylor. “I felt really famous that day.” Unfortunately, Idris wasn’t up to date on all the latest beefs. Despite that, he picked up on the intense vibes between Taylor and Kanye because what would fame be without a little drama?

Taylor Swift Is Releasing Her New Album On The 10th Anniversary Of Donda West’s Death: Coincidence?

Taylor Swift Is Releasing Her New Album On The 10th Anniversary Of Donda West's Death featureUnsurprisingly, Taylor Swift’s return to music with “Look What You Made Me Do” has been marred with controversy. Between listeners claiming the track, which was co-written and co-produced by Jack Antonoff, is a rip-off of Meghan Trainor and Lorde, it was easy to miss the release date of her upcoming album, “Reputation,” coincides with the death anniversary of Kanye West’s late mother, Donda West.

Jaden Smith Rips Off Kanye West For His New Track “Watch Me”

Jaden Smith Rips Off Kanye West For His New Track Watch Me featureJaden Smith is really pushing his music. The actor and rapper has dropped another track following up on his song “Batman,” which included a music video. The new track doesn’t include a visual, but it does sound very similar to another song.

The track “Watch Me” seems to have drawn heavy inspiration from Kanye West’s “Black Skinhead.” Everything from the guitar riff to the flow of the rhymes is reminiscent of Kanye’s song off of his 2013 album “Yeezus.” It’s another entry into Jaden’s habit of dropping music that’s not quite a cover but not entirely original either.

The song does go hard, though. Hopefully, Jaden doesn’t pass out if he performs it live.

Listen to “Watch Me” below.

Harry Styles Is More Comfortable Covering Other Artists Than Singing His Own Music

Harry Styles Covers Kanye West In Between Debuting New Songs Live featureHarry Styles hopped on stage to promote his new album on Saturday night. The One Direction singer showed off his interest in the work of other hitmakers past and present with a cover of Kanye West’s “Ultralight Beam” off the album “The Life of Pablo.”

Live at The Garage in north London, Harry offered up an emotional version of the song while he picked out some high notes on his guitar. Harry jammed on a hollow body as he belted out Kanye’s lyrics.

Harry also debuted several of his new songs live for the first time. “Meet Me in the Hallway,” “Kiwi,” “From the Dining Table” and “Woman” all got live debuts at the almost secret show.

Fans will have plenty of chances to see Harry perform coming up as the “Signs of the Times” singer begins a week-long residency on “The Late Late Show with James Corden.”

Check out video of Harry’s cover and his new songs live below.

Cash Her Outside The GRAMMYs? Danielle Bregoli Scores A Meeting With Beyoncé’s Old Producer

Cash Her Outside The GRAMMYs? Danielle Bregoli Gets A Meeting With Beyonce's Old ProducerDanielle Bregoli is still riding her viral fame. Now, instead of using a radio interview to trash talk Kylie Jenner, Danielle actually appears to be making career moves as she’s meeting with big-time music producers at age 14. Over the weekend, Danielle met with Mark Batson and Che Pope.

Mark is a GRAMMY winner for his work on Beyoncé’s “Dangerously In Love” album and has credits with Jay Z, Dr. Dre and Eminem, as well. Che has worked with Lauryn Hill, Alicia Keys and used to be the head of Kanye West’s label. Mark was giving Danielle a piano lesson in a video from their meet-up.

“This shit’s fucking hard,” Danielle says at the end of the video, getting a laugh from both of the music industry insiders.

Unfortunately, her burgeoning music career isn’t at the forefront of Danielle’s mind right now as a three-year-old video of a fight with her mom is reportedly making authorities question whether or not there’s child abuse going on.

See videos of Danielle learning to play the piano, fighting with her mom and denying that she’s been abused below.

Father John Misty Pulls A Kanye On Taylor Swift

Father John Misty Pulls A Kanye On Taylor SwiftJoshua Tillman, better known as Father John Misty, took a page from Kanye West’s “Famous” playbook and is controversially placing Taylor Swift front and center in a new song. In the track, “Total Entertainment Forever,” Father John Misty fantasizes about virtual reality sex with the “Bad Blood” singer.

“Bedding Taylor Swift / Every night inside the Oculus Rift / After mister and missus finish dinner and the dishes,” the song begins.  “And now the future’s definition is so much higher than it was last year / It’s like the images have all become real / And someone’s living my life for me out in the mirror.”

Although Taylor stood up for herself following the Kanye “Famous” debacle, Father John Misty has a better chance of being in the clear. The result of that lyric consent battle didn’t end in Taylor’s favor and it would make sense for her to stay out of it now.

Granted, Father John Misty probably reached out to Taylor ahead of releasing “Total Entertainment Forever.” He released covers of her music in 2015 and took them down after they became too popular. Taylor’s team reached out to Father John Misty and encouraged him to put them back up, which is a rare request from a singer who protects her music like a religious artifact.

Listen to the track below.

Do you think Taylor will let this one slide?
