Iggy Azalea’s Got Booty Competition, Pusha T Snags An R&B Wifey, Drake Catches Some Riff Raff?
Melting Monday. It’s still hot and heavy throughout the nation so why not keep things sizzling by starting off with Iggy Azalea having some booty-shaking competition in the form of Beyoncé Knowles-Carter? Speaking of a Destiny Child, could Pusha T and Kelly Rowland have something stirring up? With Houston pride still on your mind, are Riff Raff and Drake up to something? All this coming up in SOHH Whatcha Think.

1. Rumble In The Booty-Shaking Jungle
Has Beyoncé Knowles-Carter met her match in Iggy Azalea? Both are known for packing a strong punch in their lower backsides, but could one be more dominant than the other? Rather than spark a nasty competition that would surely have shut down YouTube, Bey decided to hook up with Iggy for her international tour. Idolator is all over this:
Iggy Azalea will be returning to her homeland this fall as she gets ready to open for Beyonce on the Australian leg of her Mrs. Carter Show World Tour. The Aussie rapper — who made the announcement on both Twitter and Instagram — shared her excitement, saying: “I’m going on tour… With beyonce! That was my special news for Australia! Can’t wait to join this tour! thankyou so much to everyone for supporting me! and thanks beyonce!” The 17-date tour will begin on October 17 in Auckland, New Zealand and will hit cities like Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane before wrapping up in Perth, Australia on November 9. Tickets go on sale on August 2 at 10 a.m. (Idolator)
Booty comparisons to the side, is this a great look for Iggy Azalea or what? She has received some heat about making a few pop-sounding songs, but if they helped her land a spot on Bey’s tour, what’s the downfall to that? #SOHHWhatchaThink?
2. Push It
Could Pusha T have found love in R&B singer Kelly Rowland? Kelly has been known to make some great music with the likes of Nelly and 50 Cent but in regard to finding a hip-hop hubby, a la Beyoncé and Jay Z, she has not been so lucky. But is Pusha the right man for her? RumorFix has some reporting on this:
Kelly Rowland’s fans were taken aback over the weekend when the “Kisses Down Low” singer posted a picture of her and rapper Pusha T partying at Atlanta’s Privé nightclub with the caption, “I love you baby! #streetlife @kingpush.” Kelly and Pusha, who is signed to Kanye West’s GOOD Music label, have a song called “Street Life” on Kelly’s latest album Talk a Good Game, but did the duo’s musical collaboration spark a romance? To answer that question, RumorFix did a little digging and discovered Pusha is still involved with his longtime girlfriend, Virginia Williams (aka Ginny). As recently as two weeks ago, the 36-year-old gifted Ginny with a Rolex watch for her birthday. A source in the know in Pusha’s home state (Virginia, no less) told RumorFix that he and Ginny are very much still a couple. (RumorFix)
To all of the single men in the world, it looks like Kelly is still available. Pusha and Kells would have made a cute couple but it’s good to see Pusha has his own longtime lover in his life. Who would make an ideal fit for KR? #SOHHWhatchaThink?
3. Started From The Riff
Are Drake and Riff Raff up to something? It wasn’t too long ago when Riff hinted at something stirring up between him and the Canadian hitmaker. MStarz has a recent spotting of these two:
Drake took it back home this past weekend to hit the studio and show love to his fellow Canadian artists. The “Nothing Was The Same,” rapper kicked with Justin Bieber and Riff Raff backstage at Justin Bieber’s “Believe” at Toronto’s Air Canada Centre Saturday. The trio had a great time as Riff Raff and Drake watch the show together and then meet up with Bieb’s after he shut it down on stage. The fellas laughed and had a great time and even put on for a few Vine videos and photos. Riff Raff posted the good times for their fans with the caption: “Chillen with my best friend Drake.” (MStarz)
Could Drake realize Riff Raff is possibly going to land himself a few millions with this Spring Breakers lawsuit and want to be his best friend now? Probably not considering how much Drake makes. You have to wonder what these two are up to, seems like a far run from Houston to Canada for Riff. #SOHHWhatchaThink?
