Chris Brown Accuses Former Boss of Leaking Album

Tina Davis and Chris Brown

Chris Brown has accused his former manager of leaking his new album.

The R&B star, whose record X is set to be released May 5, warned his fans on Twitter that there are "snakes in the grass" and claimed his former boss, Tina Davis, was trying to "sabotage" the release, the follow-up to 2012's Fortune. "My old manager is leaking my NEW album and refuses to give me my back up hard drive to sabotage my album. That's F'd up G! [sic]," he tweeted. Chris later deleted the tweet but added, "Snakes in the grass ... Just stay positive."

Is this our first look at the iPhone 6?

iPhone 6 leak front

Is this the iPhone 6? It's February, and that means that like clockwork, it's time for the next iPhone leaks to start dropping. The only thing we know is that Apple is working on its next flagship device, and that the iPhone 6 should launch this fall. We've ben hearing reports that Apple will release two larger-sized variants this time around: a 4.7-inch model, alongside a 5.5-inch version.

As you can see in the pictures (which, to be clear, have not been verified to be real), the displays here are larger than those found on the iPhone 5 and iPhone 5s, and also takes on the design language of the iPad Air and iPad mini. Neither are too far-fetched, and for our tastes, we think it looks great. Also, check out that bezel-less display, another rumored feature of the iPhone 6. Of course, even if these are real, Apple tests multiple designs, and this could be one of a few different ideas that the company is playing with.

We've got two more pictures of the device after the jump. What do you think? Let us know in the comments.

EDIT: Forum posters at MacRumors have taken a closer look at the images and have determined that they're rendered fakes. Reasons include textures that repeat and the usage of an out-of-date font.

Prince Not Suing Fans Over Bootleg Performances

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Gossip, Leaks, Performances, Pop, R&B / Soul, Rock,

PrincePrince says it's "cool" when fans share music.

The "Purple Rain" hitmaker has scoffed at reports he filed a $22 million lawsuit against 22 internet users who allegedly posted recordings of his live performances online. The 55-year-old musician insists he would never sue his own fans and is happy for them to share his songs as long as they are not doing so to make money.

Speaking at a press conference held at his friend Lianne La Havas' home to announce his upcoming London concerts on Tuesday, Prince told the BBC, "Nobody sues their fans. I have some bootlegs of Lianne but I wouldn't sell them. But fans sharing music with each other, that's cool... But when you hear something [on bootleg] you're just hearing something that's not finished."

Prince - who is about to release a new album with his band 3RDEYEGIRL - also revealed he has a large number of unheard music in the vaults at his Paisley Park home and studio, and he owns the rights to old archive of recordings that he may release in future: "A song from 1985 might come out in 2021. I have a whole organization who look after stuff."


Quentin Tarantino to Sue Gawker Over Script Leak

Quentin TarantinoQuentin Tarantino is suing Gawker for leaking his script for The Hateful Eight.

The Oscar-winning Django Unchained' director decided to pull the plug on the proposed cowboy film last week when it leaked, and is now suing the website which made it widely available on the internet.

"Gawker Media has made a business of predatory journalism, violating people's rights to make a buck ... This time they went too far. Rather than merely publishing a news story reporting that Plaintiff's screenplay may have been circulating in Hollywood without his permission, Gawker Media crossed the journalistic line by promoting itself to the public as the first source to read the entire Screenplay illegally," the lawsuit states.

The director is demanding at least $1 million for Gawkers actions. The site was not the original source of the script leak, but Quentin blames them for making it available to the public, despite having said he was planning to publish it himself.

Bruce Springsteen’s New Album Leaks on Amazon

Bruce SpringsteenBruce Springsteen's new album leaked on Amazon at the weekend.

The musical legend's upcoming LP High Hopes was briefly available on the online retailer's mobile website on Saturday for fans to download the tracks individually on MP3. The album originally wasn't due for release until January 13, and Amazon has since realized the error and taken down the album. However, it is believed fans have already placed the songs on a number of illegal file sharing sites.

High Hopes, which was recorded in New Jersey, Los Angeles, Atlanta, Australia and New York City, features Rage Against The Machine guitarist Tom Morello on numerous tracks, as well as a cover of Suicide's "Dream Baby Dream."

Meanwhile, the 64-year-old star recently admitted the record was put together in an abnormal manner, unlike other artists who have a structure. "The best way to describe this record is that it's a bit of an anomaly. But not much. I don't really work linearly, like a lot of people do," he previously said earlier this month.

One Direction Annoyed by Album Leak

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Leaks, Upcoming Releases, Pop,

One DirectionOne Direction is "annoyed" that their album Midnight Memories has leaked online.

The boy band's third studio album is set for release on November 25, but tracks emerged on the internet yesterday, and they are concerned it will affect record sales.

"It is annoying because there's this big build-up and it affects sales. We really want a number one, so we're just kind of hoping for the best now. Hopefully people go out and buy it," Liam Payne said.

Louis Tomlinson is also frustrated and would rather people wait until the official release. "It's just frustrating when you work so hard on an album and you kind of want everyone to hear it at the same time. Some select fans won't listen to it until it's out, which is great. But there are others who obviously can't help themselves," he added.
