You can't go one week without hearing a ridiculous story involving some of your favorite celebrities. Thankfully, the Starpulse Rumor Patrol is here to sort out what's real and what's fake.
Nicki Minaj Plagiarized Starships: Did Nicki Minaj copy a song? She has been sued by electronic artist Clive Tanaka for copying his 2011 song Neu Chicago for her hit single Starships.
Verdict: They are similar. Tanaka may have a case when he heads to court. However, the music progression in question is fairly simplistic and is only a handful of notes repeated ad nauseam. Tanaka's lawyer said, “We believe they are similar to the point that it is nearly impossible for it to be a coincidence.” Watch the two music videos below and tell us what you think.
Miley Cyrus And Kanye West Collaborate: It was the hot rumor in late August: Cyrus is a no-show to her own party and is spotted headed over to a music studio with Kanye West. But were they actually working on a remix of West's racially-charged Black Skinhead?
Verdict: True. Producer Mike WiLL Made It told RapFix Live that Cyrus did indeed head to the studio with Kanye and worked on a remix. He also said, "It is about done, we’re just touching the beat up a little bit. It’s sounding crazy.”
Lady Gaga Bisexual Rumors: The pop star's daring fashion, music videos, and love for the LGBT community have led many to believe she was bisexual. However, she's only publicly dated men. So what's the truth?
Verdict: She's been with women. Lady Gaga revealed herself that she has had hookups with women and finds them to be more daring than men. She told Andy Cohen on Watch What Happened Live, "I’ve taken a few dips in the lady pond. I like girls. I know people think I just say things to be shocking, but I actually do like p----.
"I find lesbians to be way more daring than straight men when it comes to coming onto you. And I really like that. It wasn’t until I found a guy that could come onto me as strong as a lesbian that I fell in love."
