AMP Music Minute: Katy Perry Baby Bump? Kid Cudi Updates Us On New Album And Lupe Fiasco Locked Down At LAX

musicminute 1 AMP Music Minute: Katy Perry Baby Bump? Kid Cudi Updates Us On New Album And Lupe Fiasco Locked Down At LAX

Remember last week [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Katy Perry[/lastfm] surprised everyone on The Ellen Show with a free concert? Well, also during her appearance on the show her and Ellen spoke about Katy starting a family. At the time, she said she was looking forward to having children, especially “if the first one doesn’t hurt,” she half-joked. But now wasn’t quite the right time, she explained.

Well now is it! We think.

I’ll explain the investigative journalism that has rumors swirling around that Katy Perry may already be working on starting the Brand Clan.

[photogallerylink id=130007 align=right]First Katy was seen at the MTV European Music Awards with a noticeably round and protruding tummy. Her performance went off without a hitch and she didn’t even [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Beyonce [/lastfm]pause to rub her belly. Still, our ears were up.

Then a source close to the singer said Katy plans to take a break after her Give Thanks Show and finale of her California Dreams tour to spend more time with and working on her family.

Besides a random show in January in the Philippines (I wouldn’t turn down a trip to the Philippines either), Katy will be resting from her months-long tour and doing whatever she wants.

We, of course, wonder and do believe that a baby is on the way in the Perry-Brand family, only time will tell if that little muffin is already a-bakin’!

AMP will keep you posted on the story, so stay tuned!

Twitter has become quite the news source as of late. [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Kid Cudi[/lastfm] took to the social media outlet with all the fury he could muster up to update the world on his upcoming project with frequent collaborator and band mate, [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]DotdaGenius[/lastfm].

First, he announced that his band will no longer be called [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]2beContinuum[/lastfm], but [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]WZRD[/lastfm], short for Wizard, “News update!,” Cudder tweeted “Me and @DotDaGenius are no longer called 2 Be Continuum. The world will call us W Z R D, which is short for WIZARD.”

Further, Mr. Rager gave us a release date and some of what to expect on the upcoming project, “And heres the biggest news, the official release date will be January 30, my birthday. Had to push it back to get the proper time to mix and master, want it to sonically be where it needs to be,” Cudi continued on his Twitter-nouncement, “For your smoke sesh enjoyment!”  

“Also, the WZRD album does not contain any profanity or the usage of the word “n***a”. A universal album for everyone,” he hailed.

Unfortunately not all his fans were excited about this new direction Cudi is heading in, being a “clean” rapper and all, so Kid had to address the naysayers on his Twitter-rant as well. Haha man some of yall really upset theres no profanity?? You know songs can be written with out them right? Some of yall listen to so much ignorant shit that thats all you know or are accustomed to. My fans are smart, I know yall better then this,” he concluded.

So, expect a new Kid Cudi album under the monker, WZRD, and expect some family-friendly, albeit ganja-smoking sounds at the beginning of next year!

Cudi and Dot will release a snippet of their new sound as soon as it finishes mixing. “Oh also, @DotDaGenius and I have decided to release Dose of Dopeness for free. Mixing next week. For you! :),” Cudi tweeted the next day to quell fans desire for his new music.

2012 is going to be one epic year for album releases. I can bank on that!

[lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Lupe Fiasco [/lastfm]has been a political activist long before taking the stage and rocking mics across the globe. In fact, in a recent interview on Last Call with Carson Daly, Fiasco said he felt like the more politicized his music became, the more he grew into the family business. As if being a “revolutionary” was “in our DNA,” he said.

Needless to say, the revolutionary rapper has always had issues with authority and this past week, the same was true. Lupe was detained for a short while at Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) over some unidentified piece of technical equipment that was not allowed on the plane.

[photogallerylink id=118240 align=left]An agitated Lupe took to twitter to let off some steam about the situation, “WOW…Fresh outta handcuffs @ LAX,” Lupe Tweeted only hours before a show in Rhode Island. He continued his tirade, but tried to stay light and level headed given the medium, “Airport PD officer was just doing way too much,” Lupe tweeted. “Even OD’d on TSA…let the arrest get before the CHARGES. We good tho…#TimeForPrivateJets, ” he joked.

“Shout to all the good airport cops and TSA folks…don’t let the bad apples spoil the bunch!!” Lupe said on Twitter before taking the stage in Rhode Island. Luckily he wasn’t charged with anything and released in time to make his flight and still make the show on the East coast.!/LupeFiasco/status/137200842259435521

Sounds like drama!
