R. Kelly Blows Off The Postal Service For Phoenix



R. Kelly made headlines at Weekend One of Coachella with a surprise performance, but it was another performance, or lack thereof, that had him making headlines after Weekend Two.

When The Postal Service frontman Ben Gibbard took the stage on Saturday night, he dropped a shocker on the crowd. “We were supposed to have a special guest last weekend, but then that guest took the stage with Phoenix instead,” Ben explained .”He was supposed to be here tonight, but didn’t show up again. That’s OK though. This song goes out to you, R Kelly,” the band leader added before going into his hit, “Such Great Heights.”

No one expected Kelly to take the stage with Phoenix during Weekend One, so we’re sure The Postal Service collab would have been even more surprising. One reason Kells may have blown the indie band off is because Phoenix was a headliner while The Postal Service was more of a mid-card act.

Regardless, Phoenix and The Pied Piper’s performance was a hit. The two did a mash up of the r&b singer’s hits, “Ignition (Remix)” and “Flirt”, which you can check out below.

UPDATE: A rep for Kelly tells HH that their client was never scheduled to appear with The Postal Service. “That’s not true.
He didn’t miss a performance … He performed as a surprise guest with Phoenix the first weekend. That’s all he was ever supposed to do and he did that.”

From Gangsta To Gospel … Snoop Dogg Shuts Down Critics Of His Spiritual Album



Who says a gangsta rapper can’t drop a gospel album — apparently, the critics.

Snoop Dogg released his spiritual effort, Bible Of Love, today and unfortunately some folks just don’t understand why. Thankfully, we talked to Uncle Snoop and he let the haters know they won’t be dulling his shine.

“My spirit is in the right place,” Snoop proclaimed, “so for those who have backlash or something to say, their spirit ain’t right.” But Unc didn’t stop there, he went on a preached a word right quick … “I thought the Bible said Jesus was in the streets mixing it up with the real, bringing the real back to the fold.” Yep, yep, that’s exactly right!

But just because he has a gospel album doesn’t mean Snoop ain’t still street. “I come from the hood and I come from the church so they can’t out do me,” he reminded us.

Do you agree with The Doggfather’s message?

Bible Of Love is available now!
