50 Cent Busts A Shot At Jay Z, Nicki Minaj’s Azz Gets Tapped, Riff & Katy Perry Couple’d Up?
Thirsty Tuesday. It’s a day to quench thirst, so why not get things started with 50 Cent taking a quick shot at Jay Z for Eminem? Speaking of shots, does anyone want to give Nicki Minaj‘s booty a shot? Or maybe a tap, tap, tap? Couples are pretty rare these days with all the breakups, but are we surprised Riff Raff and Katy Perry are doing it big together? All this coming up on SOHH Whatcha Think.

1. Cashing Out
Does 50 Cent really have issues with Jay Z, of all people? Probably not but whenever he talks people listen and maybe too much is put into what the G-Unit boss says. XXL Mag via Music Choice is on it:
He would later compare Jay Z and Eminem. He explained how Eminem surpasses Hov and that comparing the two wouldn’t be fair by bringing up how Jay Z needed Em for touring purposes a few years back.
“That’s Live Nation ‘cause [Jay Z] sold his touring career to Live Nation,” 50 Cent says, referring to Jay Z’s reported $150 million pact with Live Nation that was signed in 2008. “They’ve got to keep him hot enough to go get their money back. So they match ‘em up with Em, put them together ‘cause he got more momentum connected to his relationship with Beyonce and his record with Alicia. It makes sense. It makes sense, the Detroit/New York show. But it only makes sense to me because of business, it makes sense, because Em sold like 60 million records more than him. How you put ‘em there like they’re equals? It’s tough for me to say some of this [stuff] and not sound like a hater. But I don’t care.” (XXL Mag)
Can you agree with 50 Cent’s logic? Does he make a lot of sense or is he really taking a shot at Jay? Is Eminem in a class all by himself? #SOHHWhatchaThink?
2. Tap, Tap, Tap
Are we all obsessed with Nicki Minaj’s butt? If so, there’s really no one to blame but Nicki herself since she has really emphasized its size in videos and in photos. Someone had the smarts to actually create a game where you can make Nicki’s butt get even bigger. SPIN has the skinny:
Between Nicki Minaj’s “Anaconda” and this year’s cheeky, if disappointing, VMAs, it’s clear that the Summer of Ass is in full swing. According to her Twitter account, New York rapper Kitty (formerly: Pryde) has decided to celebrate the season by helping create a simple, silly, and addictive video game called “Tap That,” which involves little more than clicking on celebrities’ butts.
After you head to tapthat.club, you can “choose your bae” from a lineup of Beyoncé, Iggy Azalea, Kim Kardashian, and Nicki Minaj. From there, you’re paired with another user and have to click on your avatar’s rear until it fills the whole screen. If you lose, you’re treated to a fair bit of flatulence and a sad Drake screencap from the “Anaconda” video. So head over to the “Tap That” website and, uh, tap some asses. (SPIN)
It looks pretty intense. Is there any reason why you shouldn’t give this game a try? Just don’t get tapped out. #SOHHWhatchaThink?
3. Doubled Up
Is this all legit? It seems like the most unlikely pairing would be Riff Raff and anyone, but especially Katy Perry? RumorFix has its hands all over this one:
One of the best red carpet moments from Sunday night’s MTV Video Music Awards came via Katy Perry and rapper Riff Raff.
The pair showed up in matching denim outfits.
Which was totally a throwback tribute to the now infamous matching denim gown and suit worn by then-couple Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake at the 2001 American Music Awards.
And the look was completely intentional.
The 29-year-old singer tweeted the pop princess after the show telling her “@britneyspears I did my best impression, hope u likey!”
Brit Brit most certainly did, responding “@katyperry Just when I thought the denim dress had retired….you bring it back! You looked amazing tonight bb ;)” (RumorFix)
Should we all take this seriously? Was this just a chance for Katy Perry to be witty? Is Riff Raff the man right now? #SOHHWhatchaThink?
