Dust & Breath Weekly Top 5

Another week down fam, summer is about half way through and i’ve been trying to take in all the special moments I won’t have once school begins again. Take in your summer memories and live your best life by checking out 5 things that happened in the media this week.


1. Bieber: No Purpose

Earlier this week Bieber announced that he would be canceling the remaining 14 shows due to “unforeseen circumstances.” There has been an immense amount of speculation surrounding this decision. Many our questioning why the 23 year old star doesn’t have enough left in his tank to finish out The Purpose Tour. When confronted by paparazzi Bieber said everything was fine and that he just needed some R&R after two years of touring. I think we can all learn something from Justin in this case. John Mayer paid him kudos via twitter check it out, here.


2. VMA Nominations

While the Video Music Awards don’t air until August 25th, the nominations have been released and fans are getting excited to see who brings home a moonman. Kendrick Lamar is leading the way with 8 nominations for his album ‘DAMN.’ including best artist and best new video. Miss Katy Perry and The Weeknd are following Kendrick in a close second with 5 nominations each. Check out the full list of nominees, here.


3. Kylie Jenner: Lawsuits

While things have been going great for Kylie recently, including her entry in Madame Tussaud Wax Museum. The young hollywood mogul is facing another lawsuit. An artist is suing Ms. Jenner and NBC for violating copyright laws and using her artwork in the trailer for her new show “Life of Kylie.” If you have a law degree and an eye of style this could be your chance, take a look at the claims, here.


4. Jay-Z 4:44

Another week, and here we are still talking about this new album. I found myself shook after coming across this twitter theory for the name of Jay-z's album. The album comments on the infamous elevator incident where Jay-Z and Solange caused a scene. This scene occurred at The Standard hotel in New York City, and sure enough the address to this hotel is “444 West 13th Street” Check it out fam, here.


5. Baby Kardashian-West 3 Months Down

Sources confirmed earlier this week that Kim and Kanye's San Diego surrogate is 3 months pregnant with their child. Looks like Kim + Ye will be ringing in the new year with a child. However, in the incident more than one child is born the couple have agreed to pay $5,000 per additional child carried.
