Lana Del Rey's song "So Legit" leaked online earlier this week and features some pretty harsh and seemingly direct jabs at pop megastar Lady Gaga.

"So Legit" could have been written as early as 2008 or 2009, according to reports. Whenever she penned it, Del Rey's sultry vocals are unmistakable.

As is the fact that she's laying into the "Born This Way" singer.

Many thought the two New York natives were close friends - and maybe they are, or were - but this paints the opposite picture to say the least.

"Stefani, you suck ... I know you're selling 20 million," Lana Del Rey sings. "Wish they could have seen you when we booed you off in Williamsburg."

DJ Khaled proposed to Nicki Minaj Thursday in front of MTV News cameras, and by all accounts he means it. Guy had a (10-karat) ring and everything!

"Nicki Minaj ... I'm going to be honest with you; I love you," Khaled said, looking straight into the camera, speaking directly to the oft-Twerking rapper.

"I like you, I want you, I want you to be mine."

Khaled had a lot to get off his chest, first telling Nicki how he feels about her, before he popped the big question: "Nicki Minaj, will you marry me?"

"We got the same symptoms, we're both suffering from success," he said, citing Minaj's hectic schedule as the reason he didn't ask in person.

"[If] you gotta take time and think about it, I overstand, but I know I have to be here today to let you know how serious I am and how serious this is to me."

The We the Best CEO and Nicki's YMCMB label-mate was clear and direct with his message and bought a $500,000 ring to back up his proposal.

What do you think she'll say?!

Solange Knowles on the Mic

"I wish I could put in words how much of a difficult decision this was," Knowles wrote. "But between moving part time to a new city, starting my son in a new school, and writing/recording my new record... I really had to make the best decision for my mental/physical health and provide some stability for my family."

"I share responsibility and offer my sincerest apologies for the pain this has caused," Drake wrote on his official website in response to the backlash.

"Individuals with autism have brilliant and creative minds, and their gifts should not be disparaged or discounted. This was a learning lesson for both of us."

"I'm grateful for the opportunity to try to right this wrong. J. Cole and I believe it is the right, responsible, and respectful decision to remove the lyric from the song."

J. Cole and Drake sparked outcry from the Anti-Bullying Alliance for the controversial rhyme: "I'm artistic, you n-----rs is autistic, retarded."

There is no better way to start your morning than with this video of movie clips brought together to sing the 1990 classic, Ice Ice Baby

No movie was safe from this YouTuber's maniacal plans. Everyone from Bob Hoskins' Mario, to Pee Wee Herman, to even Sho'nuff, the Shogun of Harlem, lent their work to this incredible blend of cinema and musical history.

If this clip accomplished nothing else, at least it found a use for the ridiculous puns uttered by Arnold Schwarzenegger's Mr. Freeze character all throughout Batman and Robin.

Ice Ice Baby not enough musical mash-up for you? Check out Bill Clinton's Blurred Lines!
