Kanye West Hit With Lawsuit!

Kanye West & Kim Kardashian Shopping In Miami

A one-time child soul singer has slammed Kanye West with a lawsuit!

Ricky Spicer, 56, is charging that the rapper used his voice without asking on “Yeezus.” Spicer (as anyone would be) was super surprised to hear himself on West’s single, “Bound 2,” which debuted at No. 1 in June.

“Mr. Spicer’s voice is sampled exactly as he recorded it and his voice … is heard several times,” said the suit, filed Monday in Manhattan Supreme Court.

Spicer is demanding that West give him the appropriate compensation or cease and desist from using his voice. Pretty reasonable, right? Besides West, the suit fingers Roc-A-Fella Records, Island Def-Jam Music, Rhino Entertainment and Universal Music Group as defendants.

Come on, Kanye. I know you think highly of yourself, but you can’t just use some dude’s voice without permission!

Is Demi Getting A Christmas Proposal From Wilmer?!

Demi Lovato Book Signing For Her Book 'Staying Strong 365 Day A Year' At The Grove

Is Wilmer Valderrama going from Demi Lovato‘s ex…to fiancé?!

Rumors running wild today that Wilmer’s gotten Demi a very sparkly ring this holiday season. Reportedly,  Wilmer bought a ring at Tiffany & Co. and even had it engraved with the very special message, “With you and by you always.”

But is it a proposal, or just a piece of nice Christmas bling? An insider revealed:

“It looked like an engagement ring, but could have just been a nice expensive ring he was giving to Demi. He was really low-key at the store and was trying to stay under the radar.”

Demi Lovato has a lot on her plate…and I’m not a huge fan of Wilmer. What do you think? Is it a proposal, a gift? And….should Demi accept it?!

Taylor Swift Loves Her Some Collaboration!

The Winter Whites Gala

Taylor Swift might be done writing about herself…for the time being!

“I’m really loving collaboration right now,” Swift told Billboard during a quick stop in Los Angeles to support her song “Sweeter Than Fiction” from the film “One Chance..”

“I see it as a bit of an apprenticeship. I want to be around people who love writing songs and have done it for years. Every time I’m in a studio I’m learning, like how to build a drum track, and getting a new perspective on things. It’s so thrilling to keep learning on your fifth album.

“As soon as (an album) comes out I’m figuring out what the next one will be. It’s gotten to the point where each one is a reinvention, which is what I like best. I like it when it sounds new and people don’t know where you’re going to go next.”

In case you didn’t know, “Sweeter Than Fiction,” her end-credits song for the story about “Britain’s Got Talent” winner Paul Potts, received a Golden Globe nomination on Dec. 12; she is also up for four Grammys. Sounds like doing songs about OTHER people has its perks, no?

“It can get pretty intense writing (personal) details — that’s a very vulnerable place to put yourself in. But there’s a specific type of thrill you get from that recounting of your life. There’s a different kind of thrill you get hoping you have accurately portrayed someone else’s emotions that you’re seeing so well done by these actors, James Corden and Mackenzie Crook. The actors did such a great job it was fairly easy to get inside their heads.”

What do you think of Taylor’s new mode of songwriting?
