Spotify Snatches Ads Naming Justin Bieber The New “Latin King”

Spotify pulls ads calling Justin Bieber the latin king-1Spotify set off a lot of alarms when the streaming service began posted an ad minting Justin Bieber as the “Latin King,” but quickly learned what a huge mistake that was. Not soon after subscribers saw the ad, they began sounding off about how insensitive and incorrect such propaganda is–especially, since Justin doesn’t even perform “Despacito” anymore.

Taylor Swift Slithers Back To Streaming Services The Same Day Katy Perry Drops

Taylor Swift Comes Slithering Back To Streaming Services With Plenty Of Venom For Katy Perry featureTaylor Swift’s a publicity mastermind. The singer’s truest art probably comes in the headlines she makes–and the ones she steals. Pop music’s biggest snake is at it again. This time, she’s trying to squeeze the life out of Katy Perry’s album “Witness” by returning her entire catalogue to streaming services on the day of Katy’s release.

Taylor used to hate streaming services, but apparently stealing Katy’s thunder is a petty enough reason for her to make her return. Seven of Taylor’s albums, including a live album and deluxe editions of “Red” and “1989,” are available now on services like Spotify, Google Play, Amazon Music and Pandora Radio.

Katy has been sounding off about Taylor a lot lately. She’s even dropped a Taylor diss track. But Katy is only human, after all. And the latest move by Taylor might mean this beef has plenty more time on the grill.

Listen to Katy’s new album and one of Taylor’s old albums below.

Is Taylor being calculated or is this just a coincidence?

DNCE’s “Body Moves” Is The Perfect Song To Play When You’re Dead

DNCE perfect for your funeralTypically the only song from DNCE that gets any attention is “Cake By The Ocean.” However, a new Spotify commercial shows that at least one person feels that the group’s song “Body Moves” should be heard–at a funeral.

“I just can’t imagine anyone listening to this at a funeral. That’s a pretty messed up funeral,” Joe says before envisioning the non-traditional funeral. Alessia Cara was also featured in a Spotify ad for her ties to a global warming playlist.

Zayn Malik Versus Calvin Harris: Nasty Twitter Feud Explodes Over Taylor Swift

Calvin Harris Zayn Malik Twitter Feud 2Zayn Malik might be making more enemies than friends in his attempt to launch a solo career. Earlier today, Zayn retweeted a post that ripped Taylor Swift’s decision to remove her music from Spotify.

Calvin Harris Zayn Malik Twitter FeudTaylor’s boyfriend, Calvin Harris, wasn’t having the shade and took to Twitter to fire back at the former One Direction member. “@FemaleTexts @zaynmalik You’ve made your money? Cool…f**k the 99% of musicians who depend on these services to survive right? Yeah f**k em.”

Calvin Harris Tweets ZaynCalvin’s response ignited a war of words between the two musicians. Zayn shot back at the fiery comments by implying Calvin was old and saying the DJ misunderstood. 

Zayn vs. Calvin HarrisCalvin swiftly began to backtrack on his earlier statements and wished Zayn nothing but the best. “@zaynmalik best of luck, genuinely. You’ve got a great voice.”  Zayn, however, was not having any of it. He ended the feud with another zinger, “Oh and I write my own sh*t too d*ckhead.”

Of course, it does seem that both Zayn and Calvin might be players in a slightly larger battle going on behind the scenes.  Zayn was retweeting a comment that was as positive about Miley Cyrus as it was negative toward Taylor, and we have lately seen Miley calling out Taylor as a “role model” in the current issue of Marie Claire. Also, Taylor just featured the band Little Mix at her last concert, and Little Mix has been throwing disses pretty frequently in Zayn’s direction since his breakup with band member Perrie Edwards.

So we’re guessing that this Twitter beef might be part of tensions involving a few other notable celebs who – at this point – have managed to refrain from tweeting . . .

Do you think it was right of Calvin to have Taylor’s back? Or do you think Zayn’s perspective is justified in preferring Miley’s stance over Taylor’s?
