Cardi B threw a microphone at a concertgoer who hurled a drink at her mid-performance over the weekend. During an outdoor set at Drai’s Beachclub in Las Vegas on Saturday, the Grammy winner, 30, became the latest musician to be targeted with items thrown at them while performing. In a now-viral video of the incident, Cardi can be seen wearing an orange dress during the performance and looking surprised when the drink is thrown in her direction while she performed her hit "Bodak Yellow." In response, Cardi threw her microphone at the front-row attendee, who security seemingly escorted away.

​Snoop Dogg has canceled his Hollywood Bowl concert in Los Angeles to show solidarity with writers and fellow actors currently on strike. The rap legend was expected to perform at least two shows this fall to honor debut album “Doggystyle," which turns 30 in November.​​ ​The Long Beach native was initially set to perform in LA in June alongside fellow Super Bowl headliner Dr. Dre. He postponed that concert to October due to the Writer's Guild of America (WGA) strike. The show is now postponed indefinitely.

J. Cole Opens Up About Improving Mental Health, Praises Female Rappers



Irish singer Sinéad O’Connor has died at age 56. O’Connor, who courted controversy throughout her long career, rose to fame with her 1990 rendition of the Prince song “Nothing Compares 2 U,” which hit No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 that year. O'Connor made as many headlines for her activism and provocations as she did for her music. In October 1992, she infamously tore up a photo of Pope John Paul II and said "Fight the real enemy" as she performed as a musical guest on “Saturday Night Live.” She said the move was in protest of child sexual abuse in the Catholic Church. “I’m not sorry I did it. It was brilliant,” O’Connor told The New York Times in 2021. “But it was very traumatizing.”

J. Cole has opened up about how meditation and staying away from social media has helped improve his mental health. During an appearance on Kevin Hart‘s “Hart To Heart” on Peacock, Cole also praised female rappers. The Grammy-Award winning artist revealed that it was his new publicist Kathryn Frazier who helped him find his way back to utilizing the art of meditation. Cole said he also set a rule for himself to refrain from being active on social media.

“I had set rules for myself. One was like, ‘bro, you can’t go on social media no more’.Nobody’s there to be like, don’t Google yourself. Don’t search your name. I had set some rules for myself, some baseline rules like, yo, don’t go on Twitter. Don’t read your replies. That’s rule number one. Number two, when you’re creating, you got to create from a pure place only. That was a rule I set for myself. Everything has to only be truly what you feel in your heart,” Cole said.​​
