Goodbyes are always the hardest, especially when it comes from our favorite artists.
On Monday, Nov. 15, The Kid Laroi dropped his music video for his song “Still Chose You” with fans. After the premiere, the artist announced he’s closing the chapter of the F… Love era.
He shared in an Instagram post “To my beloved fans, I hope you all enjoy the ‘Still Chose You’ video! I know that record is a fan favorite, so I felt that it was only right for that to be the video that finally closes the ‘F… Love’ era.” He continued “It’s been a wild year, to say the least. Seeing the impact of the project and hearing about how it’s helped and changed so many peoples lives is f…. Beautiful – but also incredibly surreal. It’s the reason why I do this s—. My life has also changed so much this past year because of it and I owe it all to every single one of you. There is no way I will ever be able to repay you.”
He concluded the statement with, “Last week I went on a small vacation for the first time in a while. During that time I started thinking, and I made the decision that I need to take some time away from everything and focus on the next project, my debut album. I’m going to miss you all beyond words can describe, but I do believe that this is what I need to do to give you all the best music possible. I’ll be back soon, I promise. I love you, Laroi.”
The Kid Laroi did remove all previous content on his social media but kept the note to fans. Many have sounded off in the comments with support of his decision and encouraging him to get the well-deserved rest after a packed year.
For now, we can continue to stream all his current music to hold us over. I can’t wait for new music and to see what The Kid Laroi comes up with next.
Swedish supergroup ABBA is officially back with a new album for the first time in 40 years. The powerhouse group is hoping to connect with a new generation in the latest album release. In a statement back in September, the group shared jokingly “They say it’s foolhardily to wait more than 40 years between albums.”
Bay Area rapper G-Eazy struck a plea deal to avoid jail time from the September assault incident.
On Monday, Nov. 8, 2021, the “No Limit” rapper appeared in a New York City court to plead guilty to disorderly conduct.
The Manhattan District Attorney Office shared that Gerald Earl Gillum (G-Eazy’s real name) was assigned to a diversion program and must complete three Manhattan Justice Opportunities sessions in order to avoid time behind bars.
He is also ordered to stay away from the alleged victims of the September incident and is scheduled back into court in January to ensure he’s following through on his deal.
In September 2021, G-Eazy was charged with misdemeanor assault after he and members of his crew allegedly got into an altercation with another group of guys at the “Boom Boom Room” inside the Standard Hotel. One person was struck in the head with a glass bottle with G-Eazy accused of punching an individual in the head.
Legal troubles from the rapper have not slowed down his music career since the incident. He released his latest album “These Things Happened Too” in September and teamed up with Demi Lovato for a music video of his song “Breakdown”, which has both singers acknowledging their dark past and trauma.
Britney Spears is free of her conservatorship, which controlled her life, career, and finances for almost 14 years.
A judge in Los Angeles terminated the court-ordered arrangement on Friday, Nov. 12, 2021, at the request of Britney and her legal team.
The ruling comes after Spears delivered a powerful statement about the conservatorship in court last June. She called it “abusive” and shared she felt “bullied” and “alone.”
The hearing on Friday marked the first one since Britney’s father, Jaime Spears, was suspended from serving as co-conservator. Her father has denied allegations of mishandling the conservatorship repeatedly.
The pop star celebrates the ruling on Instagram by sharing a video of her fans celebrating outside the courthouse waving pink “Free Britney” flags and confetti poppers with the caption “Good God I love my fans so much it’s crazy !!! I think I’m gonna cry the rest of the day !!!! Best day ever … praise the Lord … can I get an Amen ???? #FreedBritney”
Attorney for Britney, Matthew Rosengart, also celebrated by sharing “Britney, as of today, is a free woman, and she’s an independent woman,” Rosengart told the cheering crowd after the decision. He continued with “And the rest, with her support system, will be up to Britney.”
We are so happy for Britney and her freedom. Long overdue!
