The Wu-Tang Clan performed at Bonnaroo 2013, which would have been noteworthy enough, but it was an unexpected attendee who stole the show:

Their American Sign Language interpreter!

As the remaining members of the legendary hip-hop group did their thing, the palpable energy was almost upstaged by the moves of the ASL translator.

That's signing with swag, people!

Between this woman and Lydia Callis, Michael Bloomberg's ASL interpreter who became a viral star after Superstorm Sandy, sign language has never been so cool!

The tragic death of Lil Snupe was not an accident, police believe.

Officials in Louisiana say they think a 36-year-old man shot and killed the 18-year-old rapper and Meek Mill protege during an argument earlier this week.

The dispute may have come down to video games, amazingly.

Police have issued a warrant for Tony Holden, a convicted felon who should be considered armed and dangerous, but have not been able to locate him.

Police confirmed Lil Snupe dead early Thursday after he was shot twice in the chest. Snupe (real name Addarren Ross) was just signed to Mill’s label.

Who needs Wyclef. Amanda Bynes will sign a record deal with rapper Waka Flocka Flame for her upcoming, debut hip hop album.

Yes, this is a real thing.

  • Waka Flocka
  • Amanda Bynes, Post Arrest

Waka, who's in charge of Brick Squad Monopoly records, says no deal has been signed yet, but already has people penning Amanda's songs.

While this sounds as ridiculous as the chosen Kim Kardashian baby name, Waka insists that it's gonna happen - and gonna be a big, big deal.

Waka says he and Amanda FaceTime at least once a week and text every day about her rap career and "keeping her head up from the haters."

The album will be called Shots, he says, and "It's going to be crazy hot."

On Tuesday night's dramatic season finale, Danielle Bradbery beat out Chamuel and the Swon Brothers to be named The Voice of Season 4.

"You are an amazing coach and an amazing person, I love you coach," she told Blake Shelton, who has mentored three straight champs.

Shelton called Danielle "the most important" winner the NBC show has boasted to date, and has made no secret of his high hopes for her.

What do you think: Did she deserve to win?

Some sources indicate that he was shot and killed, although no official details, including the location, have been released as of this posting.

No homicides with a similarly aged victim occurred in the Baton Rouge area overnight, though it's unclear if he still resides in that city or was there last night.

In any case, Lil Snupe's manager, DJ Smallz and Dream Chasers' Louie V Gutta both tweeted of the rapper's death this morning with heavy hearts.

Kidz Bop, the compilation albums that take Top 40 hits and cover them with cleanly-worded renditions sung by screaming kids and 'tweens, has discovered "Thrift Shop."

The #1 hip-hop hit by Macklemore and Ryan Lewis offers plenty of questionable language to swap out with kid-friendly lyrics, and the Kidz do not disappoint.

Right off the bat, "f--king awesome" becomes "really awesome," and "Walk up to the club like, 'What up? I got a big c--k!'" becomes "Walk up to the club like, 'What up? I got a hit song!'"

"Ice on the fringe, so damn frosty / That people like, 'Damn! That's a cold ass honkey'" is now "Ice on the fringe, it's so, so frosty / The people like, 'Hey! The guy on the marquee!'"

And on and on it goes in unintentionally hilarious fashion.

Kid Rock is not what you'd call a big fan of Justin Bieber.

He spoke out about the star on Howard Stern's radio show on Wednesday, likening Bieber to Vanilla Ice, and predicting his long, hard fall from grace.

Or whatever you'd call where Justin is right now.

Rock was promoting his $20 Best Night Ever tour, where he's charging fans only $20 a ticket, when the topic of Bieber's recent woes came up.

"Tell me if this is wrong," he asked Howard. "Justin Bieber ... is 100 percent like watching Vanilla Ice all over again. It's exactly the same."

When Stern remarked that Ice was a one-hit wonder, Rock amusingly responded, "Well, then as soon as Bieber has a hit, he'll be like Vanilla Ice."

Miley Cyrus released the music video for "We Can't Stop" today, and it's filled with so many crazy antics, it may take you multiple viewings to digest.

Trust us on this one. But also see it for yourself below ...

The three-minute music video is basically sensory overload, which is no doubt what the envelope-pushing Miles intended. Among the many highlights ...

  • Miley scarfing down white bread (no gluten free recipes here)
  • Lots of gratuitous shots of Miley Twerking in tight pants
  • More Twerking, but this time with giant ass teddy bears
  • Some chick cutting her fingers off with a meat cleaver
  • Miley Cyrus French-kissing a large Miley Cyrus doll
  • Some shameless Beats by Dre product placement
  • A hot guy not named Liam Hemsworth
  • Goats in sunglasses (don't even ask)
  • A cigar pinata (we think)

And there you have it. What do you think of the video?

Prepare yourselves. Jimmy Kimmel, Channing Tatum and Jamie Foxx have premiered an official music video for "(I Wanna) Channing All Over Your Tatum."

The song, which plays off the actor's unique name, was first composed and hilariously performed by Foxx on Jimmy Kimmel Live back in February.

Now it's gotten the music video treatment, featuring the likes of Olivia Munn, Gabourey Sidibe, Miley Cyrus and Kimmel himself. Take a look below:

Under the awesome pseudonym 4 Chainz, Jamie Foxx raps:

"See that foxy girl turning up that heat / Make her take them heels off / Got them tattoos on her feet and it's you / She wanna Channing all over your Tatum!"

What does "Channing All Over Your Tatum" even mean?
