Kid Cudi Walks Off Stage at Rolling Loud Miami, Kanye West Makes Surprise Appearance With Lil Durk

Published

on

Kid Cudi stormed off the stage during his headlining set at Rolling Loud Miami on Friday (July 22) after being hit numerous times by objects thrown from the crowd.

The “Day ‘N’ Nite” rapper, who was a last-minute replacement for Kanye West, was early into his late-night performance when he stopped the show after being hit in the face by what appeared to be a water bottle. Clearly rattled, Cudi gave the audience a final warning before ultimately exiting the stage.

“Yo, I will walk off this stage if you all throw one more f—ing thing up here, I will leave, I will leave right now,” the rapper and actor said sternly. “Throw one more f—ing thing on this stage and I’ll walk off, I’m not f—ing playing. I’m not f—ing playing, you will ruin it for everybody. I’ll f—ing leave If I get hit with one more f—ing thing, if I see one more f—ing thing on this f—ing stage, I’m leaving. Don’t f— with me.”

Of course, as soon as Cudi was finished reprimanding the rowdy crowd, another bottle was thrown onto the stage and the rapper kept his promise and left.

Billboard has reached out to representatives for Cudi and Rolling Loud for comment.

At around the same time Cudi ended his set, Lil Durk was performing on another stage at Rolling Loud, where West — who now goes by Ye — made a surprise appearance. During his brief cameo, the superstar rapper and fashion mogul’s performed his hit song “Father Stretch My Hands, Pt. 1,” from his 2016 album, The Life of Pablo. Watch Ye’s surprise appearance in a fan-captured video here.

Ye’s cameo was especially shocking since he had canceled his headlining slot at the Miami festival less than a week ago. He was replaced by Cudi, whom he was beefing with earlier this year. In February, Ye announced on social media that Cudi wouldn’t be featured on his Donda 2 album because of the rapper’s friendship with Kim Kardashian’s boyfriend, Pete Davidson. Cudi, who last collaborated with Ye on 2021’s Donda, left a scathing comment directly on Ye’s Instagram post, saying, “Too bad I dont wanna be on ur album u f—in dinosaur hahaha.” He added, “everyone knows ive been the best thing about ur albums since i met u. Ima pray for you brother.”

Following Ye’s cancellation at Rolling Loud, the festival’s co-founders Tariq Cherif and Matt Zingler shared the following statement: “We were looking forward to Ye headlining Rolling Loud Miami 2022,” the co-founders said. “We spent months working with him and his team on the performance. Unfortunately, Ye has decided that he will no longer be performing. This is the first time a headliner has ever pulled off our show and though we don’t take it lightly, we wish him the best. We look forward to welcoming Kid Cudi as a headliner in Miami and we can’t wait to see what he has in store.”

‘White Lotus’ Music Supervisor Explores the Series’ (Mostly) Hawaiian Needle Drops

Published

on

Emmy nominee Janet Lopez, the music supervisor for “The White Lotus,” notes that the show’s creator, Mike White, didn’t script any songs.

The idea was to establish the location, which took her into listening to beautiful and important music from Hawaii, that she found through researching the music available from the region’s publishers and record labels.

Lopez’s goal was to thread together a musical journey that resonated with the characters while enhancing the exotic location of the show. “We wanted the music to travel with the emotion in the scene, instead of feeling like pure needle drops on top of it,” she says.

To achieve that, it was down to the show’s editors to connect those moments. Lopez says, “That allowed for flexibility to explore a variety of songs and pursue authentic tracks that were special to Mike.”

Lopez explored some key music selections from the show’s first season for Variety.

“He Hawai’i Au” by the Sunday Manoa

“Like so many songs in ‘The White Lotus,’ this song was a favorite of Mike White. … Everything about this song and the Sunday Manoa is authentic, so having it play beautifully over a new day in Hawaii as our characters wake up to the possibilities was perfect. It was so organic that letting it simmer and play as the source in the lobby is what we did.”

“Hawai’i Aloha” by the Rose Ensemble

“The end of this episode marks the first song use by the Rose Ensemble. Their thoughtful and soulful sound is heard often throughout the season, and playing them over Armond’s internal conflict into Quinn’s (Fred Hechinger) first pure appreciation of nature felt honest and real.

“Their songs just worked and by the end of the season, they too felt like a sort of theme that we were grateful for.”

“Hukia Mai” by APM Music

“A common misconception about production library music is that it’s affordable and therefore not valuable. This is just not true.

“APM Music is a perfect example of how important and credible library songs can be. Kapono Beamer is a beloved and respected, Grammy-nominated and 12-time Nā Hōkū Hanohano Award winner (Hawaii’s premier music award), and along with Mac Prindy and Grahame Roy Maclean, he is a co-writer on the song ‘Hukia Mai.’

“‘Hukia Mai’ was not an alternative to a more expensive song, but rather a proud first pick for what worked best in the scene.”

“Jesu, Joy of Man’s Desiring” (aka “Herz und Mund und Tat und Leben, BWV 147:X. Jesu bleibet meine Freude”) by Eugene Ormandy & the Philadelphia Orchestra

“Mike White loved this particular arrangement of Bach’s ‘Jesu, Joy of Man’s Desiring.’ And while it was very different than anything we’d heard in the season, it also felt 100% right.

“In any other show, this could have been a scored moment, but Mike’s vision was spot-on and we used this recording as well as a gorgeous version by the Dominican Sisters over various sequences of Armond unraveling.

“Mike’s openness and exploration for what works is part of the magic and fun in the music.”

“Island Style” by John Cruz

“This song plays over the end credits in the final episode and was an important song for Mike. Its performance by Grammy and Nā Hōkū Hanohano Award-winner John Cruz is genuine and a beautiful final reminder of our show.”

Niall Horan Reveals Which Harry Styles Hit Is His ‘Favorite Song At the Moment’

Published

on

It’s not the same as it was back when One Direction was still together, but Niall Horan is still taking time to support his former bandmates. In a recent rapid-fire Q&A with American Golf, the 28-year-old musician revealed that his current favorite song is one by his onetime co-boyband-star and longtime friend,  “As It Was” by Harry Styles.

Strolling across one of the courses at Northern Ireland’s ISPS Handa world golf invitational, Horan first answered questions about his favorite country to visit — “Australia or Japan” — and his dream group of players in a round of four-ball — “Tiger Woods, Jack Nicklaus, me and my dad.” Then, when interviewer Mia Baker asked the “This Town” singer what his favorite song at the moment is, he took a moment to think before naming Styles’ 10-week Billboard Hot 100 No. 1 smash.

“Ooh, good question, wow,” he said. “I’ll go with Harry’s song, ‘As It Was.’ Great song.”

Horan also revealed that his childhood idol was none other than The Boss himself, Bruce Springsteen. “Bruce Springsteen has always been a hero of mine,” he shared.

And when Baker confessed in whispered tones that she didn’t know who Springsteen is, Horan joked, “You shouldn’t say that much louder.”

The “Our Song” musician has long been an avid golf fan, and even founded a golf management company called Modest! Golf in 2016. Just in July, he attended The Open championship and tweeted congratulations to its winning player, Cam Smith.

‘High School’: Get Your First Look at the TV Adaptation of Tegan & Sara’s Memoir (Exclusive)

Published

on

Tegan and Sara’s teenage years serve as the inspiration for Freevee’s all-new, original series, High School, which is adapted from the band’s 2019 memoir by executive producers and co-showrunners Clea DuVall and Laura Kittrell. Ahead of its fall debut, ET has an exclusive first look at the series’ cast, including TikTok personalities Railey and Seazynn Gilliland as Tegan and Sara, respectively. 

In addition to an image of Railey and Seazynn, who are making their TV debuts with the series, ET also got a first look at special guest stars Cobie Smulders and Kyle Bornheimer, who play the twins’ parents Simone and Patrick.

High School, which is also executive produced by Tegan and Sara Quin and Laura Kittrell, as well as Plan B’s Dede Gardner, Carina Sposato and Jeremy Kleiner, is the latest anticipated LGBTQ-centric project about finding your own identity, and how that journey is made even more complicated when you have a twin whose own struggles and path to self-discovery mimics your own. Set against the backdrop of the 1990s’ rave and grunge culture, the dramedy will weave together parallel and discordant memories of two sisters growing up down the hall from each other. 

“This is not, like, a goofy, surface-y show about sisters who fight over clothes. Like, this is our story. It is about identity and it is about depression and it is about drugs and alcohol and it is about sex and it is about homophobia,” Sara told ET, explaining that they wanted the series to “feel sophisticated.” 

High School

When ET last spoke to Sara, she opened up about adapting the memoir for TV and reuniting with DuVall, who they previously collaborated with by contributing original music to her queer Christmas rom-com, Happiest Season.  

“I remember our agent being like, ‘Man, I can see this being a TV show or a movie.’ And we were like, ‘Really, are you sure?’” Sara said, recalling how they never wrote the book with the expressed intention of taking their story to the screen. 

But soon, they realized there was an opportunity to expand queer storytelling on screen. “We don’t see stories like ours told very often,” she said, explaining that “a story about queer teenagers who are not, like, feminized or who are sisters” is very unique. 

As for working with DuVall, who co-writes and directs several episodes of High School, Sara said it made perfect sense to team up with her here. “She’s not just our friend, she’s actually kind of a sibling,” she said, explaining that they’ve spent Christmases together and have been a part of each other’s adult lives for years. 

“After she read the book, she called us and said, ‘Look, I would be honored and humbled if you would let me try to take this material and turn it into a television show,’” Sara recalled.

Now, High School is set to debut on Freevee on Oct. 14. During the network’s presentation at the Television Critics Association’s 2022 Summer Press Tour, the series unveiled its first teaser, giving fans an even closer look at what’s to come.
