A wax statue of Nicki Minaj in Madame Tussauds in Las Vegas has been the subject of controversy since it was put in pride of place in the visitor attraction in July.

New Look Wireless Festival drew to a close last weekend, with over 70 acts performing across 3 stages, all in celebration of their 10th birthday.
Kicking off proceedings on the Friday was ASAP Rocky, who performed tracks including Goldie and Excuse Me. The performance was uninspiring and lacked engagement with the audience, leaving festival goers in anticipation for headliner Drake.
Drake took to the stage, after cancelling last year's headline appearance due to illness, and was definitely worth the wait being a standout 90 minute performance. The Canadian rapper was appreciative of the Wireless crowd claiming London was his 'second home' before being joined by local MC Skepta for track Shutdown.

Powered by current single 'I Bet My Life', the eclectic group secures its first ever U.S. Number One album with 'Smoke + Mirrors'.
Las Vegas rockers Imagine Dragons have landed straight in at the top spot on the Billboard 200 with their second album Smoke + Mirrors. The group, responsible for the enormous 2012 hit ‘Radioactive’, sold 195,000 units of their sophomore effort in the first week, compiled from physical, track and streaming equivalent sales according to Nielsen SoundScan.
The record is also currenly top of the charts in Britain, and is only new entry inside the Top Ten this week. Despite the impressive figures, Smoke + Mirrors has got a way to go before it tops the sales for their first album Night Visions, which to date has sold 2.5 million copies and has only left the Billboard 100 for two of its 129 weeks on sale. ‘Radioactive’, by itself, has sold in excess of nine million copies in the U.S. But that album only made as high as Number 2 during its run.

Nicki Minaj is undeniably a force to be reckoned with in terms of commercial hip hop. Where numbers and sales are concerned, she's pretty much on top. Prior to her mainstream success she gained respect on the underground circuit with savage spitting. As of late, she's certainly found her lane and audience, but I can't say I'm her biggest fan; too much of her material lacks any content to latch onto, but that hasn't had any impact on her success. 'The Pinkprint', her third album, released through Young Money and Cash Money, is proving to be popular amongst the Nicki faithful, but given my previous discomfort with much of her work, I was unsure what to expect.
The album opens with 'All Things Go', and although the creepy, haunting instrumental makes for a dark, more mature sound to begin 'The Pinkprint' with, Nicki's lyrical content is still somewhat forced, camouflaged under multisyllabic rhyme schemes that make her sound more convincing than she is in reality. Although the production is consistent and suitable, some of the album's downfalls are the mundane, tired, sure-fire club hits. 'Trini Dem Girls' is not something I want to listen to at all. The already tired 'Anaconda' did not make for pleasant listening either; I'm ashamed to say I threw my iPod across the floor at the relentless, irritating subject matter. I should have known better than to expect any actual lyrical substance. This easy 'cash in' format can also be found in 'The Night Is Still Young', although I'm sure your Saturday night clubber will enjoy this immensely in their natural habitat regardless of the played out nature of the track.
Surprisingly, the thing that impressed me most about this album is Nicki's vocal capabilities. She has a strong, emotional singing voice that sounds at home over the sparse, relatively poppy instrumentals found on this project. A prime example is the Mike Will Made It produced 'I Lied', although even here, as soon as Minaj starts spitting, the mundane subject matter becomes clear. The seductive collaboration with Ariana Grande, 'Get On Your Knees', is pretty dope, although the 'say pretty please, say pretty please, say pretty please' lyric is enough to make you cringe. The collaboration with Beyonce is also pretty good, and Drake's verse on 'Only' is entertaining, although Lil Wayne's appearance is characteristically lack-lustre. The album gets tired though; even Nicki's emotional outpourings become less and less strict to their concept, littered with materialistic and braggadocios references.

The female hip-hop star finally opened up about the nature of her relationship with the 27-year-old rapper Meek Mill.

'If You're Reading This It's Too Late', surprise-released on iTunes on Thursday, is actually a tactic designed to free the rapper from a contractual obligation.
Canadian rap star Drake surprised the world by releasing his new album unannounced on Thursday. However, it has since been revealed that If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late is a mixtape, rather than a proper studio album.
The reason for the confusion behind the new material is apparently so that Drake can fulfil a contractual obligation and free himself from Cash Money Records, according to XXL. Under copyright, the new record appears as his fourth studio album for Cash Money, thus bringing him to the end of his contract.

In the trailer, the 32-year-old rapper says that "until you are in it [the spotlight], you really can't wrap your brain around it."
