Jay-Z debuted at #1 on the Billboard charts, moving 528K units of MCHG last week.  Find out when his MCHG tour will be headed to Europe inside and hear Robin Thicke’s "The Good Life" single.    

After he hit up Bey’s (she’s rocking a printed Topshop look) hometown return in Houston for the Mrs. Carter Show (above) last night, Jay-Z’s critically acclaimed disc Magna Carta Holy Grail debuted atop the Billboard Hot 200 today, moving 528,208 units.  But he wasn’t the only new addition to the charts.  Ciara’s Ciara moved 57,515 units while J. Cole shifted 38,718 units and Kanye West push 28,701 copies of Yeezus.  

Although Hova has already garnered a platinum plaque, thanks to Samsung’s Magna Carta app, those sales will not count towards his Billboard tally. And in celebration of the disc’s success, Jay-Z’s hitting the road.  Now that he’s nabbed Teen Choice Award noms for Choice Summer Music Star: Male, and Choice Summer Tour (with Justin Timberlake) he’s announced the new “Magna Carta World Tour” – European Dates.

"Yung Rapunxel" rapper Azealia Banks made one of the biggest moves of her career when she hit the stage at the 2013 Glastonbury Festival last night.  In front of one of the largest crowds of her career, she thanked the audience for their support and marveled at going all the way from the "212" to Glastonbury.

Joined by two background dancers, she did her entire set with no "hype" man.  She also debuted her upcoming single "ATM" featuring Pharrell (though he didn’t appear).

BEAT IT: Michael Jordan Moves To DISMISS Paternity Suit, Says Legal Docs Prove THE KID Is NOT His Son

Michael Jordan has released a statement claiming legal documents prove he didn’t father the teenager who’s claiming to be his son. Find out what he said inside….

Basketball legend Michael Jordan has been splashed across gossip pages in the past week after the 16-year-old son of Pamela Y. Smith (shown above) posted a YouTube video claiming to be his son and then she filed legal paperwork demanding Michael to claim paternity.

Back in February, Pamela Y. Smith, 48, filed suit in Fulton County Superior Court requesting that MJ take a paternity test, pay child support and share medical, dental and hospital costs that are not covered by insurance.

So why did Pam do this now? Apparently, Pamela’s son wants to forge a relatiosnip with his father and for now…they think the legal system is the best route. In a statement released earlier, Pamela’s publicist said, "Pamela had no choice but to support her son and his desire to forge a relationship with his father. That’s why she is now speaking out and prompting Michael to do the right thing."

Not so fast…..said MJ’s lawyers today. Michael and his legal team recently filed documents seeking to dismiss Pamela’s case, claming paternity of her son has already been established.  And MJ is NOT the father.  His legal team told the Associated Press,

"Public records show that the paternity of the child was established in a prior case in this same court many years ago and that Michael Jordan is not the father. He also filed a counterclaim seeking sanctions for the false claims made against him. It is unfortunate that well-known figures are the target of these kind of claims. Michael Jordan will vigorously defend himself and his reputation."

And Michael’s team says Pamela’s suit is a "shameless, bad faith attempt to abuse the legal system."  For now, we guess a judge will decide as MJ and Pamela are set to meet in court for Tuesday, March 12.

We reached out the Pamela’s publicist for a comment….and we’re still waiting.

Womp.

Mindless Behavior Got ‘Girls Talkin’ Bout’ Their Swagger Moves in New Video

Mindless Behavior

YouTube

Hot on the heels of their ‘Mrs. Right‘ tour video, Mindless Behavior dropped their new clip for ‘Girls Talkin’ Bout.’ The frenetic pace and technical dance moves are sure to be great promotion for their headlining Scream tour.

The video opens with colorful text, breaking into strobe lights and the guys’ trademark style and dancing. Each member — Princeton, Prodigy, Ray Ray and Roc Royal — are in a futuristic studio showing off their moves and killer fashion sense. The guys are clad in color while their backup dancers are in black and white with sneakers matching whichever member is in front of them at the time.

Soon, the guys are in different outfits and have moved to the parking lot of a car wash, where — what else? — a dance party ensues.

The video perfectly captures Mindless Behavior’s vibe: youthful (“Ya’ heard about my age? / Forget that number“), stylish (“swagger on a hundred-thousand-million and beyond“) and precisely what girls will be talkin’ bout.
