Mike Epps Says "Everyone Is Funnier" Than Kevin Hart, Nick Cannon Gets Caught In The Cross Fire

"All I can say is that you're a sad individual."

Mike Epps doesn't think everyone who calls themselves a comic is deserving of the title, particularly Kevin Hart. Epps, 47, took to social media recently and posted a picture of himself and Eddie Murphy. He captioned the photo "Eddie Murphy funnier than Kevin Hart still" then took his comment about Hart one step further by adding, "Sh*t, everybody is."

Hart saw Epps' comments and responded with a jab of his own.  "It's a shame that everybody isn't selling tickets like me though," he said.

It's unclear who may have suggested Hart was funnier than Murphy, but Epps staunchly disagrees with the idea.

What should've been a light back-and-forth between the two escalated when ComedyHype posted the exchange on their website. Epps' thought the decision was unnecessary, Hart, however, unleashed a fiery retort.

"All I can say is that you're a sad individual," Hart captioned. "I talked to you several times face-to-face to put the B.S. behind us. I even reached out to you like a man to try and get to the bottom of your bitterness. When will you realize my success has nothing to do with you or your journey?"


Nick Cannon tried to intervene and sprinkle in light-hearted, mini-joke of his own to lighten the mood.

"Lions don't lose sleep over the opinions of sheep," Cannon said. "Kings don't bicker. We too strong and too beautiful to highlight hate. It's enough of the white man's money to sprinkle around to make us all giggle."

Epps, however, wasn't interested. "If you don't shut yo drum line teenage forever looking a**." He also
accused Hart of playing the victim.

"You still starving to be a victim? I said it wasn't press worthy and here you go as usual trying to show the world how great you are because people pick on you. GTFOH!" Epps captioned.

"You have a long line of sh*t to clean up before you hand me a motherf**king bucket. I've been doing this sh*t [for] 25+ years, Mr. Victim. Don't get too cute lil brother."

Amy Winehouse Hologram Tour Postponed Over “Unique Challenges”

Amy Winehouse's hologram tour is officially postponed, BASE Hologram, the company behind the digital production, announced via Twitter Tuesday (Feb. 19).

“In developing the type of highly ambitious, state of the art hologram/augmented reality theatrical event that would truly capture her genius and incredible artistic and social contributions, we encountered some unique challenges and sensitivities,” the company revealed.

The tour, originally scheduled to launch sometime this year, is delayed until BASE can “determine the best path to a creatively spectacular production that would properly honor Amy’s legacy.”

Mitch Winehouse, the “Back to Black” singer's father, announced the tour last fall, which was expected to feature a live band backing a digital projection of Winehouse.

Winehouse died from alcohol poisoning in 2011, following a very public battle with addiction that ultimately cut her life short. Proceeds from the tour will benefit the Amy Winehouse Foundation, an organization that works to prevent “the effects of drug and alcohol misuse on young people.”

Michael Jackson's Estate Files $100 Million Lawsuit Against HBO

Michael Jackson’s estate filed a $100 million lawsuit against HBO over the upcoming Leaving Neverland documentary set to air next month. Jackson’s estate accuses the cable network of breaching a non-disparagement contract made with the King of Pop back in 1992.

"HBO breached its agreement not to disparage Michael Jackson by producing and selling to the public a one-sided marathon of unvetted propaganda to shamelessly exploit an innocent man no longer here to defend himself," Howard Weitzman, attorney for the Jackson estate said in a statement accompanying the lawsuit, according to NBC News.

The statement adds that HBO should have “ensured that Leaving Neverland was properly sourced, fact-checked and a fair and balanced representation.”

Leaving Neverland features alleged accounts from Wade Robson and James Safechuck, both of whom accuse Jackson of molesting them when they were minors. Robson, who attended Jackson’s funeral in 2009, previously testified in 2005 that Jackson never molested him. In 2013, Robson sued the estate claiming abuse. Safechuck also sued for similar allegations in 2014. Both lawsuits were dismissed because the statute of limitations had passed. The two men hope that the film will “educate the public about how abuse like this happens.”

The estate claims that the amount of damages potentially caused to Jackson’s legacy “could exceed $100 million should HBO success in the damage it is intending to cause.” Jackson’s estate also believes the King of Pop's accusers are using HBO as part of their “litigation strategy.”

HBO plans to air the film, as scheduled. In a statement responding to the legal complaint, the network called out Jackson’s estate for going to “desperate lengths” to undermine the documentary. “Our plans remain unchanged. HBO will move forward with the airing of Leaving Neverland, the two-part documentary, on March 3rd and 4th. This will allow everyone the opportunity to assess the film and the claims in it for themselves.”

Rico Love Wants His Lady To 'Shine' In New Music Video

Through a montage of dark city views paired with silver monochronistic architecture, Rico Love is making sure the main lady in his life blossoms above all possible adversity from her past in the newly released visuals for his latest single, “Shine.”

The video features a beautiful, chocolate-hued woman clad in a pinkish fur coat, who serves as Rico’s main source of love and affection. With his captivating lyrics and a soulful voice filled of conviction, the Grammy award winning songwriter is steadily making his sonic stance on the R&B world.

Love credits his stellar musicianship to his discipline when it comes to studying music. In an interview with The Fader, he details part of his learning process taking it back to his rapper days.

"It’s just like a guy who’s 6’10". He can teach himself how to dunk if he does it every day. I take everything serious that I do. I go 100%," he said. "I study. It wasn’t like I was just this rapper who didn’t listen to Queen, who didn’t understand Rufus Wainwright, that didn't listen to the Beatles. I don’t want to sound like a pompous jerk, but I have amazing taste in music. When you start loving great songs, when it’s time to write one your own ear can understand what’s a great song and what’s not."
