Adele Will Say "Hello" To A Venue Near You In 2016

Adele is taking over North America with a 6-month tour from the East to the West coast. 

You never know what an Adele concert may looks like. It might entail anything – from passionately screaming the lyrics to her most popular ballads, to crying profusely – but you won't have to guess any longer because the British singer just announced the details surrounding her 2016 North American tour.

The dates will kick off in the summer of 2016, on July 5, and conclude in early November. The headlining tour will hit some major cities around North America including Los Angeles, New York, Chicago, Philadelphia, Boston, and Washington D.C.

This will be the artist's first tour in the last five years. The last time she went on tour, many of her shows were cancelled due to her battling laryngitis, a chest infection, and a vocal cord hemorrhage. The "Hello" singer ended up cancelling 16 shows for mandatory vocal surgery.

"When I've sat down and thought, 'What can I do to bring something new to the table?' It was just like, 'Tour.' Because I haven't done it properly," Adele said of her return to the live stage.

As for the fans who missed out on her last tour leg, and for those who never got a chance to experience an Adele concert, the announcement of this 6-month tour will definitely come as a relief. And for Adele, the announcement, along with her 5 million album copies sold, this will be the cherry on top to an incredible comeback year.

A$AP Rocky Comments On R. Kelly: "He Needs To Be Dealt With"

A$AP Rocky stopped by Angie Martinez's Power 105.1 radio show to discuss his annual Yams Day celebration in honor of deceased A$AP Mob member, A$AP Yams. The event will take place Thursday (Jan. 17) at the Barclays Center.

While discussing the special guests that will take the stage, Rocky said that his "brother" French Montana is one of the MCs who will be there. When asked about French's recent comments about R. Kelly, Rocky decided to put his two cents in on the highly-publicized sexual misconduct allegations against the Pied Piper of R&B.

"Can I say something about that?" said Rocky when queried abut French's take on Kelly's legacy.  "I think [French] had a Kanye moment where he was trying to articulate something and his delivery just wasn't right. I think what he was trying to say was people like Bill Cosby, people like R. Kelly, [they] build up this legacy for a long time, and it just gets taken away."

Rocky continued by bringing up Kelly's marriage to the then-underage Aaliyah, expressing shock that her age on their marriage certificate was forged.

"Don't get me wrong- do I know if R. Kelly is a rapist and all that other stuff? It seems like he is," he exclaimed. "I mean, like he married Aaliyah when she was, like, 15... He married Aaliyah at 14, 15… how old was he when that alleged video came out? Too g*d damn old. I look at it like this. If that man has a sickness, he needs to be dealt with. He done beat the court dates… it goes to show the whole system is corrupted… R. Kelly was the King of R&B… and this motherf**ker now is known for being a sex pedophile.”

Watch his comments above around the 16:40 mark.

YG Hints At Follow-Up Song To "F**k Donald Trump"

Since Donald Trump's inauguration two years ago, YG has been a staunch opposer of No. 45. The Compton native has amplified his stance through public statements to recording his disdain on the 2016 single "FDT" which stands for "F**k Donald Trump."

Now, on Jan. 15, the Still Krazy rapper took to Twitter to alert the masses that the "FDT" follow-up is on the way. The message, which went viral with over 20,000 retweets, ignited a wave of excitement within fans. Although YG released another part of the song featuring G-Eazy and Macklemore, details are still a little murky as to the exact type of content or format his rumored melody will entail.

When the original "FDT" was released, YG claimed the Secret Service contacted his record label, Def Jam, to review more lyrical content on his album. In an interview with Rolling Stone, YG said, "The Secret Service started calling in about the song when it got released. The song didn’t release through Def Jam; we just leaked it. So then, weeks passed. I’m turning in my album and the song was. … It’s goin’ crazy. I saw that and I’m like, 'Damn. I need to put this on the album.' We had to censor damn near a big part of the song. But I did it because the record was important. I’m like, 'Man, this sh*t got to be on the album. F**k it.”

"FDT" was eventually turned into a national tour with the proceeds benefiting victims of police brutality. "Like, we was just trying to really make the tour mean something real besides the 'F**k Trump' thing, because I don't want nobody to think I'm just trying to do this to capitalize off what's going on and his name," he said. "It's like nah, like I'm really out here for the people. And I'm gonna show y'all in so many different ways."
