Drake Cuts Meet & Greets From Tour

Is Drake following in the footsteps of fellow Canadian entertainer and friend Justin Bieber? Yes and no.

Similarly, Drake is no longer doing fan meet and greets for his Summer Sixteen tour this summer.

According to PEOPLE, the “Headlines” singer-rapper, “canceled all of his fan VIP packages for the tour.” Packages which sold for up to $1,000 are receiving a $300 refund per package.

No word if Drizzy changed his mind about doing fan meet and greets in light of the the recent death of YouTube sensation turned The Voice contestant Christina Grimmie, June 10. "Scheduling issues,” has been reported as the reason for the cancelations.

Fans will still be able to share One Dance with Drake as he and Future are set to begin lighting up the stage for their Summer Sixteen Tour. The tour kicks of July 20, at Austin’s Frank Erwin Center and arrives for a three night residency at the Staples Center September 7, 9, and 10.

So while you won’t get to get up close and personal with Drake this summer, his tour with Future remains, you will still be able to Find Your Love and fix of Drizzy at one of 2016's biggest lineups.

Iggy Azalea’s “Team,” Less One Man

Saying 2016 has not been so great for Iggy Azalea might be the understatement of the year! 

First in January, her buzz single “Azillion” created little to no positive buzz for her comeback album. Later during Spring, her Los Angeles Lakers fiancĂ©, Nick “Swaggy P” Young, made news for admitting to cheating on Iggy via a leaked video filmed by teammate D’Angelo Russell.

The video became public knowledge at a terrible time for Iggy Azalea, when she had to do many promotional appearances for her newly released single, “Team."

Striding on like a trooper, Iggy continued to promote her official first single “Team” from her upcoming sophomore album, Digital Distortion. Sadly the single didn’t perform as well as her Billboard Hot 100 Top 10 predecessors, despite Azalea's promo campaign, which included high profile visits to Ellen DeGenres and Jimmy Fallon's talk shows.

The icing on a not so tasty wedding cake, Azalea just announced she and Swaggy P have officially split. The news comes nearly a year after she announced her engagement to the famous baller.

Iggy went on to write on Instagram stating, “although I love Nick and have tried and tried to rebuild my trust in him - it’s become apparent in the last few weeks I am unable to.” Young simply took to Twitter to post “single."

If there is any blessing within this breakup, perhaps it will provide great ideas and content for the still release date-awaiting Digital Distortion LP, due out this year.
