Future catches a break!
The NYPD have been forced to deny there was a shooting at Future‘s New York concert after fans claimed to hear gunshots as the show ended.
The rapper headlined Brooklyn’s Barclays Center last night (May 19) with support from Atlanta group Migos and Canadian rapper Tory Lanez.
One concert-goer posted on Twitter: “Future, migos, and tory lanez was lit. I wasn’t a fan of the gunshots and having to run for cover though.”
Authorities have now given a statement about the noise that many concluded to be gunfire. “As people were exiting the Barclays Center, there was music playing over the PA system,” Lieutenant Tarik Sheppard told VIBE.
“The song that was playing had the sound of gunshots at the end. In addition, the stage was lowered and it came down faster than normal causing a loud metal on metal crashing sound. These sounds coupled together startled some people and they began to exit quicker than normal.”

Beyonce looks like she is about to pop.
The Carters goes all out for #Cartertwins baby shower.
TMZ reports, Beyonce is just about ready to pop — and it REALLY showed at her 2nd baby shower this weekend … mostly ’cause of her belly tattoos.
Bey hosted a “Carter Push Party” Saturday and invited her mom, Tina, and a few her famous gal pals — including her Destiny’s Child crew Michelle Williams and Kelly Rowland … plus Lala Anthony AND fellow expecting mom Serena Williams.
But the highlight was obviously Queen Bey, who was walking around in some kind of tribal outfit with her very preggo belly fully exposed … and covered in henna tattoos. Reminds us of when she first announced the twins.
Nicki Minaj is sure in a generous mood as of lately….

Nicki share on the GRAM last night has been quietly sending money to an impoverished village in India for the last couple of years.
nickiminajThis is the kind of thing that makes me feel the most proud. The money I’ve sent to this village in India for the last couple years [via my Pastor Lydia Sloley], has gotten them a Computer Center, a Tailoring Institute, a Reading Program and 2 WATER WELLS. We complain about the most ridiculous little things when some ppl don’t even have clean water. Blessings to India. Our work is far from done. I’ll tell you guys more about my charity work in the near future in case you’d like to be a part of it. Love🙏🏽
nickiminajI’m so proud of our sisters in India. God is so good. Their desire was to have water wells & places where they can worship, places where they can learn technology, computers, reading, etc. We’re just getting started. These women are us and we are them!
Another one bites the dust.
A few days ago it was reported, L.A. Reid notorious for lavish spending before he was ousted as the CEO of Epic Records last week — once hired a high-priced escort as a birthday present for an underling, the birthday boy told me.
The birthday boy brought along a female friend as his date, but when they arrived, Reid took him aside.
A week to the day after news broke that Epic Records chairman and CEO Antonio “L.A.” Reid would be departing Sony Music, his longtime associate, EVP of media & strategic development Laura Swanson, has left the building as well, Variety has learned.
A highly regarded publicity and media strategy veteran, Swanson had worked alongside Reid since the year 2000 when he was running Arista Records. The two would reunite at Island Def Jam, where Reid was named chairman and CEO in 2004 and again at Epic Records, where Swanson would restructure the PR department starting in 2015.
