Gwen Stefani Headed To Las Vegas For 'Just A Girl' Residency At Planet Hollywood

Gwen Stefani is the latest musician to score a Las Vegas residency.

Gwen Stefani is hitting the Las Vegas Strip. The No Doubt singer and solo star announced on Tuesday (Apr. 10) that she will be headlining a residency at the Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino called "Gwen Stefani -- Just a Girl." The show, which will kick off on June 27 inside the Zappos Theater, was designed exclusively for the room and promoter Live Nation promised that the singer will take to the stage with a "spectacular show like no other, celebrating the breadth of her illustrious musical career."

Tickets for the show will go on sale to the public on Friday (Apr. 13) at 10 a.m. PT here beginning at $59. "To be able to do a show in Vegas is such an incredible honor. Growing up in Anaheim, California, I could never have imagined one day having my own Vegas residency," Stefani said in a statement. "I have been so fortunate to tour throughout my career, but to create a show for Vegas is something I’ve never experienced and I can’t wait."

At press time the residency consists of 25 dates spread out from June 2018 through March 2019; you can check out all the dates below. Stefani has teamed with Live Nation Las Vegas and Caesars Entertainment to donate $1 from very purchased ticket to the non-profit Cure 4 The Kids Foundation, a Vegas-based nonprofit that provides medical treatment to children facing life-threatening conditions.

Stefani stopped by The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Tuesday to announce some other news. Or rather, to not announce something major. "He got sexier and it just keeps getting better and cuter and more country," she told the host when Ellen inquired how things were going with Stefani's longtime boyfriend and People's most recent Sexiest Man Alive, Blake Shelton. And when DeGeneres wondered if the tabloid rumors about an impending marriage were true, a flustered Stefani said, "So, if I say we we are, then I say we are. And if I say no we're not then that would be sad too."

And with that, Stefani asked the married host what she thought they should do: get married, or just stay in a committed relationship? "I love being married... I think you should get married," DeGeneres said. "Don't you?" At that point, the already nervous Stefani smacked her hands and laughed, "What are you doing?" Bottom line: she loves Shelton, her kids love Shelton and Stefani thinks about marriage "all the time," but for now there's no answer.

Watch the interview below, which also includes Stefani talking about her residency.

Judge Sides With Nicki Minaj In Tracy Chapman Court Battle

A judge has sided with Nicki Minaj in her legal dispute with Tracy Chapman. U.S. District Judge Virginia A. Phillips ruled that Minaj’s song “Sorry” falls under the “fair use” and not copyright infringement as Chapman claimed, Variety reports.

Minaj was reportedly unaware that her song, “Sorry,” featured lyrics and a bit of the melody from Chapman’s 1988 track, “Baby Can I Hold You” when it was recorded. She  reached out to Chapman to get permission to use the song but was ultimately turned down. Since she couldn't get legal clearance, the track never made it to the Queen album, but Chapman’s attorneys accused Minaj of leaking the track to Funkmaster Flex. Although Minaj confirmed sending Flex an Instagram message about the song, she denies actually sending it. “I had a change of heart,” she later testified. “I never sent the recording.”

Flex said that he obtained the recording from a “blogger,” not Minaj.

In her decision, Judge Phillips reportedly noted that artists tend to “experiment” with music before they attempt to get proper licensing.

“Artists usually experiment with works before seeking licenses from rights holders and rights holders typically ask to see a proposed work before approving a license,” the judge wrote. “A ruling uprooting these common practices would limit creativity and stifle innovation within the music industry.”

Despite the ruling, the question remains over whether or not Minaj should be held liable for the song being leaked. Last month, Minaj’s attorneys filed court papers requesting that Chapman’s motion for a summary judgment be denied in full.

Big Sean Debuts ‘Deep Reverence’ Feat. Nipsey Hussle

Big Sean delivered his collaboration with Nipsey Hustle “Deep Reverence” on Monday (Aug. 24). The 32-year-old rapper decided to drop the song after  finishing up his highly anticipated Detroit 2 album due out next week.

“My heart and my gut was saying not only do people deserve that song right now,”  Sean tweeted on Tuesday (Aug. 25). “I felt like hearing nips [sic] voice, his presence and the energy of the song itself was needed and deserved it’s own moment!”

A snippet of the song debuted during Hit-Boy and Boi1da's Verzuz battle in April. Sean said that he has wanted to release the song ever since then.

“My label (a few people there, not the whole label) thought it wasn’t smart to put this song out ahead of my album, they told my team I should hold on to it...they still supported my decision in the end tho [sic],” he explained in another tweet.

The record opens with a clever and poignant verse from Nipsey. “F*ck rap I’m a street legend, block love me with a deep reverence,” he raps. “I was birthed in a C-section/Hella cops and police presence, we got opps so we keep weapons. We on y’all block while y’all eat breakfast. A lot of shots, we broke street records. Watch how you talk, I got reflexes.”

On Sean’s verse, he reveals that he reached out to Kendrick Lamar after Nipsey was killed and addresses the alleged beef between him and the Compton MC. Fans also believe that he hinted at  Jhené Aiko suffering a miscarriage. “Should be a billionaire based on the time off I’m not takin,’” raps Sean. “Probably why the sh*t with me got crazy and we lost a baby.”

Detroit 2 is executive produced by Hit-Boy, Sean and Kanye West. The album drops on Sept. 4.
