Fresh off her breakout performance in Kanye West’s “Fade” video, Teyana Taylor has signed on for two upcoming VH1 shows, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Taylor will appear on the hip-hop drama “The Breaks” and the game show “Hip Hop Squares.” An adaptation of the successful TV movie, “The Breaks” follows three friends trying to become stars in New York City in 1990. Taylor will play a rapper in the series. Before that, she will be a guest on “Hip Hop Squares,” a reimagining of the celebrity game show “Hollywood Squares.” (Another show called “Hip Hop Squares” aired on MTV in 2012.) VH1’s “Hip Hop Squares” will air later this fall while “The Breaks” is scheduled for 2017. Taylor first appeared on VH1 earlier this year when she performed in the Lil Kim “Hip Hop Honors” tribute.

Blood Orange Slams Devendra Banhart’s “Insufferable” Music

Blood Orange Slams Devendra Banhart’s “Insufferable” Music

Earlier this week, Devendra Banhart shared a new song, “Saturday Night,” from his new album Ape in Pink Marble. One person who likely didn’t care for the song is Dev Hynes (aka Blood Orange). Earlier today, he tweeted, “The music of devandra banhart is so insufferable I feel sorry for the entirety of Los Angeles, you deserve better.” He subsequently deleted the tweet, but when asked “What exactly is the point of being so insufferably rude?” he responded “Happiness,” and added “You should all know by now that I don't attack people for no reason...” See Hynes’ tweets below.

Pitchfork has reached out to representatives of both Hynes and Banhart for comment.

Back in 2011, both Hynes and Banhart were both featured in Adam Green's film The Wrong Ferarri. And, at one point, were friendly enough to pose for this picture together.

Michel’le Biopic <i>Surviving Compton: Dre, Suge & Me</i> Coming to Lifetime

Michel’le Biopic Surviving Compton: Dre, Suge & Me Coming to Lifetime

This October, Lifetime will air a biopic about Michel’le, the R&B singer who was engaged to Dr. Dre and had a son with him. It’s called Surviving Compton: Dre, Suge & Me, and stars Rhyon Nicole Brown (“Lincoln Heights”) as Michel’le, Curtish Hamilton as Dre, and Jamie Kennedy as N.W.A. manager Jerry Heller. R. Marcos Taylor will play Suge Knight, as he did in last year’s Straight Outta Compton. A new promo video for Surviving Compton teases, “Behind the men who changed hip-hop is the woman who knows the truth,” and finds Brown tearing a Parental Advisory sticker from her lips. Watch it at Billboard.

Last year, as Dre was promoting Straight Outta Compton, as well as his new record Compton, his history of abuse against women re-entered the public spotlight. At the time, Michel’le spoke out against the film, as well as Dre’s legacy. She said, “The biggest problem with Straight Outta Compton is that it ignores several of N.W.A.’s own harsh realities.” When Dre publicly apologized “to the women [he’s] hurt,” Michel’le rejected it. “I don’t really think it’s a sincere apology,” she said. “I didn’t ask for a public apology and I think if he is going to apologize he should do it individually. To just group us like we are nothing and nobody—I just don’t think it’s sincere.... Treat us like we have names.”
