David Guetta Moves to Edgewater: "This Is a Little More Cool, a Little More Cultural"

Hey, what's David Guetta looking at? Why, it's the Wynwood Art District!

David Guetta is something of a perverse pioneer. He's a true trailblazer, even if we don't all necessarily want to follow his path.

Several years ago, the scraggly-bearded Frenchman brought dance music to the masses unlike anyone before him. And today, he still sits atop the pop charts, alongside Miami natives and residents like Pitbull, Flo Rida, and Lil Wayne. So why not join the rest of these hitmakers by moving to the MIA?

However, unlike most other stars, David Guetta hasn't chosen a long-established celebrity enclave. The "Fuck Me, I'm Famous" DJ is once again poised to lead the way -- but not in a musical sense. He is joining the real estate takeover of non-SoBe Miami, essentially becoming the latest face of mainland Miami gentrification.

Get ready, hipsters ... Guetta is officially moving to Edgewater.

Jay Z and Beyonce Shut Down Miami's Jungle Island for Daughter Blue Ivy's Second B-Day

Categories: Pop Gossip


Oh, the perks of being the Jiggaman and Queen Bey's baby girl.

At only 14 days old, Jay Z and Beyonce's daughter, Blue Ivy Carter (born January 7, 2012), became the youngest person in the history of recorded music to crack Billboard's Top 100 Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs by contributing heartbeats and screams to "Glory," a father's ode to his "child with the child from Destiny's Child."

And just the other day, Ms. Blue turned two. So Daddy and Mommy Carter threw her a big b-day party at Jungle Island. But since she's a celebribaby, they didn't just take a quiet family trip to Miami's favorite interactive zoological park. They shut that motherfucker down.

Rick Ross Sues LMFAO for Stealing "Every Day, I'm Hustlin'" Catchphrase

Categories: News, Pop Gossip


If, as the Rick Ross says, "Every day, [he's] hustlin'" ...

Why did it take three full years to sue LMFAO's Redfoo and SkyBlu (plus Kobalt Music Publishing America and Kia Motors America Inc.) for profiting off that famous, Bawsely lyrical phrase?

Maybe he was too busy battling (and beating) drug dealer Freeway Ricky Ross in court over the use of the Rick Ross name. Or maybe he was simply catching up on sleep.

But whatever the cause of this 1000-day delay, Mr. William Leonard Roberts II, along with "Hustlin'" producers Andrew "Dru Brett" Harr and Jermaine "Mayne Zayne" Jackson, finally filed a lawsuit, "seeking damages and injunctive relief for copyright infringement."

Lady Gaga and Nine Other Drug-Addicted Pop Stars

Categories: Lists, Pop Gossip

Gaga couldn't quit the reefer.

Sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll go together so well that people just wear t-shirts that say, "Sex, Drugs, and Rock 'n' Roll." But what about pop music?

It turns out drugs and pop music go together like money and excess. But in the pop music world, being a substance abuser is a lot less glamorous. Pop musicians are supposed to be bubbly, shiny, perfect beings, not doped-up slack jaws with crazy-ass hair.

It's a double standard. But it's a harsh reality that's forced many entertainers to hide and lie about their addictions for years.

Categories: Pop Gossip

We want to remember Britney like this.

Yes, Britney Spears is considering retirement after the completion of her upcoming Las Vegas residency.

And you know what? That's OK. We here at Crossfade believe it's actually the right time for Britney to bow out.

Sure, gay friends, you're crushed. But hear us out.
