Drake Comes For Meek Mill With A Vengance In ‘Back To Back’ Freestyle

Drake has fired another salvo in his feud with Meek Mill after that rapper called Drake’s “Charged Up” diss track “baby lotion soft.” Three days later, Drake has responded again with “Back to Back Freestyle,” and there’s nothing soft or vague about this diss track as the Toronto rapper lays into Meek Mill.

The cruelest barbs in “Back to Back Freestyle” come when Drake attempts to emasculate Meek Mill for serving as opening act for his girlfriend Nicki Minaj’s Pinkprint Tour. “You love her then you gotta give the world to her / Is that a world tour or your girl’s tour?/ I know that you gotta be a thug for her / This ain’t what she meant when she told you to open up more,” Drake says. (Incidentally, Meek Mill showed up 90 minutes late and was promptly booed when the Pinkprint Tour hit Drake’s native Toronto Tuesday night.)

Drake then takes aim at Meek Mill’s decision to beef through social media. “Trigger fingers turn to Twitter fingers,” Drake raps. “You’re getting bodied by a singing nigga.” Drake then warns all his “boss bitches” – but likely Minaj especially – “make sure you hit him with a pre-nup.”

The feud between Drake and Meek Mill stems from Mill’s accusations that Drake employed a ghostwriter for his guest verse on “R.I.C.O.,” a track off Meek Mill’s new album Dreams Worth More Than Money. An Atlanta rapper named Quentin Miller was then identified as Drake’s ghostwriter, though Miller and Drake’s producer Noah “40” Shebib denied the ghostwriting allegations.

“When I look back, I might be mad that I gave this attention / But it’s weighing heavy on my conscience / And fuck, you left me with no options,” Drake says on the new track. “I’m not sure what it was that made y’all mad / But I guess this is what I gotta do to make y’all rap.”

Meek Mill previously shared his own Drake “diss track” titled “Beautiful Nightmare” which just featured 15 seconds of moaning.

Chris Kirkpatrick: ‘N Sync VMA’s Reunion Reminded Me Why We Hate Each Other

‘N Sync fans will have to hold onto the memory of Sunday’s MTV Video Music Awards reunion forever — because the colossal boy band has absolutely no plans for a full-fledged reunion tour or comeback album. “No [tour],” band member Chris Kirkpatrick said Monday in a Florida radio interview with Johnny’s House. “This was for Justin to get the Video Vanguard Award.” Indeed, ‘N Sync’s brief medley of “Girlfriend,” “Gone” and “Bye, Bye, Bye” was just one segment of Justin Timberlake’s 15-minute set of mostly solo material.

Kirkpatrick good-naturedly joked that reuniting a decade after their last televised performance reopened old wounds. “It was funny because all of us getting back together, we remembered what we love about each other and what we hate about each other,” the singer, 41, said. “It was just a bit of fun.”

For Kirkpatrick, performing and dancing was definitely a physical challenge. “Honestly, when he talked to us I thought we were just coming out with mic stands and singing,” he admitted. “When I came home from rehearsals my girl’s like ‘Why are you drenched?’ . . .I’m too old for this! I was so worried about not messing up for him.”

JC Chasez similarly told Ryan Seacrest Monday that a full-fledged reunion is not in the cards. “No . . . it was just about five guys who were great friends who spent 10 or 15 years together touring and we wanted to give that back to our fans, but we were there mainly to support Justin,” Chasez, 37, said. “Literally, two minutes after seeing everybody you feel like no time has passed.”

Speaking with the Associated Press, Lance Bass also gave ‘N Sync fans the bad news. “It would be lovely to do [a reunion], but we’ve got nothing planned,” Bass, 34, said, citing Timberlake’s current world tour with Jay-Z. “Who knows what will happen when he’s off tour. It’s simply not part of the conversation right now. We just focused on that one performance .If we did anything like that, I think we would come up with something real special where we could actually call it ‘The Reunion.'”

Earlier plans for the group’s VMA performance included more stage time and ‘N Sync hits for all five men (Joey Fatone rounds out the group). “The guys wished it could have been more songs,” the source said. Regardless, “they loved being back together!”

Miley Cyrus’ Team “Freaking Out,” Robin Thicke “Bummed” After VMAs

Robin Thicke tapped Miley Cyrus to croon “Blurred Lines” onstage with him at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn for the MTV Video Music Awards Sunday, Aug. 26 — but, as the world now knows, the 20-year-old starlet arguably stole the show. Clad in a tiny leotard (before stripping down to her underwear) the former Hannah Montana star preceded Thicke’s entrance onstage with a raunchy, manic take on her smash “We Won’t Stop” — complete with giant teddy bears, twerking, tongue and hip thrusts and more.

“Robin thought it would be fun to include Miley, but he didn’t realize how much she would overshadow him. This was his big night and big performance,” one source tells Us of Thicke, who broke out in a big way this year with “Blurred Lines.” Continued the source: “I don’t think he would have done it knowing what it ended up like.”

“He had fun and was fine with how it came out,” counters a Thicke confidante. “He knew what they were going to do and thought it was fun and awesome. He had a great time.”

Despite the success of “Blurred Lines” on the charts, the talked-about clip failed to win Thicke any Moonmen. “He’s also super bummed that he didn’t win, especially Video of the Year,” says the first source.

Those closest to Cyrus are also scratching their heads. “Miley’s team is freaking about that performance,” the first insider admits. “They saw the rehearsals, but those were really played down compared to the live performance.”

“It’s the VMAs, of course she’s going to do a standout performance!” a second Cyrus insider insists. “No one (from her team) was shocked by this.”
