Iggy Azalea & Azealia Banks Engage in Eric Garner-Related Twitter Beef

It's safe to say that Azealia Banks is not a fan of Iggy Azalea, whom Banks called out for neglecting to speak up on the Eric Garner controversy -- suggesting that the pop star benefits from black culture without caring about its political issues. On Wednesday, Banks tweeted about Iggy's apathy. "Its funny to see people Like Igloo Australia silent when these things happen... Black Culture is cool, but black issues sure aren't huh?" It didn't take long for Iggy to fire back, although she refrained from addressing racial issues. “There's more to sparking a change than trolling on social…

PSY's "Gangnam Style" Video Breaks YouTube Counter

PSY's the limit on YouTube. His ultra-popular "Gangnam Style" video essentially broke YouTube's view counter this week, now that it's been watched more than 2.153 billion times.

YouTube offered a technical explanation in a statement: “We never thought a video would be watched in numbers greater than a 32-bit integer (=2,147,483,647 views), but that was before we met PSY. 'Gangnam Style' has been viewed so many times we had to upgrade to a 64-bit integer (9,223,372,036,854,775,808)!” The "Gangnam Style" video was…
