Akon and Lady GagaAkon claims his record label cut ties with Lady Gaga because her career is on the decline.

The "Senegalese" hitmaker, who initially signed Gaga to his Kon Live Distribution record label under Interscope in 2007, claims he "cashed out" on the Born This Way singer because he felt her career had hit a "peak."

In an interview with US DJ Sway on Sirius XM, he was asked if he was "still involved with the star," to which he responded, "Actually I cashed out. I got out while the gooding [sic] was hot. It's like a business, you build it to sell it. When I got it to the peak of where I felt it couldn't go nowhere, and there was nowhere left to go but down, I cashed out." He added, "In other words I sold my share and got out before it was too late."

During the earlier years Akon was involved in Gaga's first album The Fame and co-wrote her hit debut single "Just Dance."

Pharrell's 'G I R L'Pharrell Williams has defended the cover of his new album G I R L after it sparked racial controversy.

The "Happy" hitmaker received criticism for the artwork, which features him stood next to three women, because critics assumed they were all white and thought he should have included a black woman on the cover.

"What really disappointed me is that, man, [the critics] jumped the gun 'cause the woman I'm standing closest to is black and she's a black girl from Wisconsin I used to date over 10, 12 years ago. That must suck for people to just look at something and assume they know what's going on..." he said.

The 40-year-old singer, who is now married to Helen Lasichanh, also praised black women, in particular 12 Years a Slave star Lupita Nyong'o: "I told her two weeks ago at the Oscars luncheon her skin was flawless, I love her skin, my god."

Jared LetoJared Leto doesn't find it difficult switching from his role as a frontman to being an actor.

The Thirty Seconds to Mars singer, whose recent performance in Dallas Buyers Club as transgender AIDS victim Rayon has seen him win a string of awards, insists moving between the two professions comes naturally to him.

"You could stick me in front of a pile of rubbish, and I'll make something out of it. It all comes from the same place, I'm a creative person, I find creative solutions to problems, and the difference is process. The process of making music is very intimate, because at least for me, and Thirty Seconds to Mars, I write the songs, my brother [Shannon] plays the drums, and we have so much responsibility from the music to the production to the videos to the design to the marketing to the tours and the production of the tours ... everything."

MadonnaMadonna "hates" her own music.

The 55-year-old singer is tired of hearing her own songs so would never work out to a soundtrack of her own material. "I don't work out to my music - I hate my music! I mean, I'm sick of it. I love my music, but I'm just kind of sick of it. I like to hear other people's music when I work out," she admitted.

The "Hung Up" hitmaker - who has children Lourdes, 17, Rocco, 13, and Mercy and David, both eight - is known for her toned physique but she isn't always happy with her body. Speaking at the opening of her Hard Candy Fitness gym in Toronto, Canada, she said, "I have a love/hate relationship with my body. Some days I'm happy with it and other days... I wasn't born with Gisele Bundchen's body unfortunately, so you got to work for it - but it's OK."

Madonna - who is dating 26-year-old dancer Timor Steffens - also admitted she isn't a fan of "big bulky" guys, but does like them to be in shape: "You need to work out. I'm not into big bulky muscles, but a little more definition would be good. I like a lean, mean, fighting machine!"

Miley Cyrus' 'Bangerz' albumMiley Cyrus doesn't mind if people don't buy her Bangerz album.

The "Wrecking Ball" singer claims she wouldn't have cared if her latest record - which was a number one album in the US, Australia and the UK - wasn't a huge seller as she is comfortable financially and more interested in making an artistic statement with her music.

"I've made my money. If no one buys my album, cool. It's fine. I've got a house, and I've got dogs that I love. I don't need anything else," she told W.

Miley, 21, may be seen as a hard-partying figure with her notorious live appearances in skimpy outfits with her tongue hanging out, but she insists when she is at home in California she rarely goes out: "I never leave the house. Why go to a movie? I've got a huge-ass TV. We've got a chef here that can make you great food. We don't need to leave. I would just rather be here where I'm completely locked in."
