Report: Jay Z Wins Legal Battle Against Former Sound Engineer

Jay Z has won a legal battle against a former Roc-A-Fella sound engineer named Chauncey Mahan, who was claiming ownership of the rapper's masters for The Life and Times of S. Carter and The Dynasty, reports TMZ. Mahan filed a lawsuit against Jay Z and Roc Nation in July.  He wanted a judge to declare him a co-owner of master recordings of the albums that he worked on with Jay Z and Beanie Sigel between 1999 and 2000.

Sam Smith Says Being Called Fat Hurts Him More than Anti-Gay Comments

Sam Smith lost 14 pounds in 14 days last month, but the British singer says he still struggles with his body image. Smith told 60 Minutes Australia that food "controlled" him from the time he was a child.  He explained, "When I was at school and wasn't having a great time or when music wasn't going very well. I would eat, eat.  Eating would make me feel better. When I felt lonely I would eat." Smith, 22, said that he is more offended when people make comments about his weight than when people utter slurs about his sexuality. Smith noted,…

Taylor Swift Says She Brought "Perspective" to Songs on "1989"

While Taylor Swift may be well-known for chronicling her personal heartbreak, her latest album 1989 is mostly missing those tales of woe...yet it's still been a massive success.  Taylor says there's one major difference between 1989 and her last album Red: time. While Red mostly focused on Taylor's feelings directly following one major breakup, she says with 1989, any songs she wrote about her love life were written after she'd had time to process her feelings about it.  "Anything you hear on this album that is reflecting back on an old relationship is done with a lot of retrospect," she…
