Donnis Delays Mixtape Again; Reveals 'Fashionably Late' Collaborations

Donnis plans to build the anticipation just a little more before following up his well-received debut mixtape Diary Of An ATL Brave. He's got some additions that will make the oft-delayed project well worth the wait.

"We've got some friends that are getting on the mixtape and we want to shoot like three videos to accompany it." Donnis told VIBE on his way back to his Atlanta home.  "I’m actually about to fly out to Japan to shoot one soon. We want this mixtape to be even bigger of a production than Diary of an ATL Brave."

The newly signed Atlantic recording artist willfully announced at a recent concert in New York City that his next mixtape, Fashionably Late, would be dropping on May 4. But it looks like fans and critics will just have to remain patient until Donnis can put the finishing touches on the project that has all eyes on him.

“Originally, the title I was rolling with was Southern Comfort, just being from the South and representing all my values.  But I’ve decided to change it up to Fashionably Late which just seems more fitting with my situation now,” explained Donnis. "I just talked to Wiz about a record, my boy Pill and Diggy is supposed to get on a record. Also I just got off the phone with Estelle. I can’t say for sure what will make the mixape, but you can definitely expect these names.” —Mikey Fresh

According to attendees at the show, Davidson spoke candidly about watching the Lifetime docuseries Surviving R. Kelly and the consequences that Kelly should receive as a result of his years of alleged abuse and misconduct. "I thought I was having a bad year," the comedian joked, according to Us Weekly.  "[Kelly] should get shot in the f**king face."

Pete is the latest celebrity to speak out against Kelly. He follows criticism from John Legend, Lady Gaga, Omarion, and more.

Davidson also discussed his relationship withe x-girlfriend Ariana Grande during his segment. He reportedly joked about Grande's previous comments about his large manhood. According to the SNL star however, his penis is fairly average. "[Ariana is a] tiny lady, so everything to her is huge," he said.

Chris Brown To Sue Rape Accuser For Defamation

Chris Brown is reportedly gearing up to take legal action against the woman who accused him of raping her at a hotel in Paris. The singer will reportedly sue her for defamation, TMZ reports.

Brown's Parisian lawyer, Raphael Chiche, says his client adamantly denies the allegations and plans to challenge them in court. "Chris Brown is free. No lawsuits were filed against him," Chiche said in a statement. "He vigorously challenges the charges against him. A complaint for slanderous denunciation will be filed tomorrow with the public prosecutor of Paris."

As previously reported, Brown was arrested on Jan. 22, after a 24-year-old woman filed a complaint claiming that he violently raped her in his Paris hotel. He was released from police custody without charges. Shortly after the incident, Brown took to Instagram where he claimed that the woman was lying. Another woman also jumped to the singer's defense, stating that he was not at the scene at the time of the alleged assault.

While the singer is free to leave the country, an official investigation into the alleged incident is still ongoing. It does not appear that Brown or his legal team have filed the defamation suit at this time.

Erykah Badu Denies Producers Contacted Her For 'Surviving R. Kelly'

Erykah Badu is hitting back against dream hampton after she claimed that producers of Surviving R. Kelly contacted the singer to appear in the Lifetime docuseries. Badu claims that she was never contacted, and would like hampton to provide the receipts or apologize.

It all started when a fan pointed out that Badu and R. Kelly worked with one another years ago, which is why she allegedly chose not to be apart of the docuseries. Erykah rejected that comment, stating that she had never worked with him on music or declined to appear in the documentary.

Hampton stepped in by claiming that a producer attempted to contact Badu, but did not receive a response. "I asked Producer T. Farris to contact @fatbellybella to be in doc because I wanted clarity on two things: 1) a quote attributed to her, 'No one has done more for Black people than R. Kelly' & 2) what she was thinking when she called him her "brother" at Soul Train Awards," dream tweeted.

Badu quickly responded: No ma’am. I WAS NOT EVER contacted by anyone to be in [email protected] You know that’s not true. I wasn’t a necessary component. You had all the right people, the ones close to the situation...But for now, produce this “producer’s” request or... APOLOGIZE. It’s simple."

Badu and hampton's latest back and forth comes only days after the neo-soul artist was criticized for seemingly defending R. Kelly amid his sexual abuse allegations at a concert in Chicago. She later clarified her remarks about the disgraced singer, saying that she did not approve of his actions, but believed he was deserving of love and assistance.

Check out Badu and hampton's exchange below.
