LOOSE LIPS:
"The breaking point was when I kept asking over and over and over again for respect and to be respected. And it just seemed like I was beating a dead horse ... I just wasn't getting it back so if I can't get respect in the relationship, then I have to move on and save myself."
--Mary J. Blige, opening up about her divorce from estranged husband Kendu Isaacs, on Good Morning America

Which music superstar breaks her Twitter silence?



Kanye West ends concert early, cancels another following rant aimed at Jay Z, Beyonce
Kanye West is continuing to lash out during his concerts, ending one early and canceling another following a rant about Jay Z and Beyonce.

The outspoken rapper left thousands of shocked fans in Sacramento behind Saturday, ending his set just 30 minutes after he arrived 90 minutes late.

"Get ready to have a field day press, because the show's over," West said according to The New York Daily News before saying how Beyonce's MTV Video Music Award win for "Formation" was rigged.

"Beyonce I was hurt," West ranted. "I heard that you said you wouldn't perform unless you won Video of the Year over me and "Hotline Bling."

West then turned his attention to Beyonce's husband Jay Z stating that he needed to call him and talk to him "like a man."

"I know you got killers. Please don't send them at my head," he continued about Jay Z.

West once again also got political bringing up Hillary Clinton and how concert goers couldn't believe she lost the presidential election because "You was lied to by Google. You was lied to by Mark Zuckerberg."

Radio station executives were also attacked when the 39-year-old stated that if they don't change, they will be "Hillary Clintoned."

On Sunday, hours before he was to take the stage in Inglewood, West cancelled the show with Ticketmaster announcing that refunds were to be given. The ticket company also announced that the Saturday show would be refunded as well stating "We understand that last night's show was cut short," according to CNN.

The rant and cancellations come after West made headlines for stating during a concert in San Jose that if he voted, he would have cast his ballot in favor of Donald Trump.

Which music superstar breaks her Twitter silence?

Janet Jackson, who is pregnant with her first child, returned to Twitter this weekend after months of silence.

"Hey you guys.. It's been awhile.. but I'm still listening.. I feel your love and prayers.. Thank you.. and I'm doing well.. Al Hamdu lillah," Jackson tweeted Saturday.

The 50-year-old Grammy winner has been staying out of the spotlight while she awaits her baby's birth, posting her last tweet in August. Jackson has been married to Qatari business magnate Wissam Al Mana since 2012.
