Kanye West has been taken to UCLA Medical Center for psychiatric evaluation.
According to law enforcement sources … cops responded to a call for a welfare check on Kanye around 1:20 PM PT. He wasn’t at his home at the time. We’re told paramedics also responded and ended up transporting Kanye to the hospital by ambulance.
Sources connected to Kanye tell us he was getting checked out by one of his doctors for severe sleep deprivation when someone — possibly the physician — decided he needed to be admitted.
Law enforcement sources tell us Kanye did not want to go, and was restrained when he was transported.
The hospitalization comes on the heels of Kanye abruptly cancelling the remainder of his Saint Pablo Tour, and launching into a verbal attack on Jay Z and Beyonce.

T-Pain’s fingerprints are all over pop, R&B and hip-hop. He wasn’t the first musician to use Auto-Tune as an instrument — he noticed it on a Jennifer Lopez remix, and remembers “Deep” well — but it was, as he says, his style. For a while, in the mid-2000s, he lived at the top of the charts. He dominated that brief moment of our lives when ringtones were a thing. He was celebrated as an innovator, and he happily took his talents where he was invited, which was everywhere.
But somewhere along the way, somebody got it twisted. “People felt like I was using it to sound good,” says T-Pain, in an interview that will air on All Things Considered. “But I was just using it to sound different.”
He just turned 30, but T-Pain has already done enough to drop a greatest hits albumnext week. We asked him if he’d grace the Tiny Desk without any embellishment or effects to show what’s really made his career: his voice, and those songs. (NPR Music)

XXL Freshman rapper Danny Brown brought an XXX twist to a recent concert by receiving a blowjob on stage.
The I Will star brought his The Old & Reckless Tour to Minneapolis’ Triple Rock venue and invited a number of ladies to join him on stage. The class-act wasn’t a planned part of the show but rather just an eager fan deciding to show her appreciation for Brown in an extra intimate kind of way.
Even more impressive is that Brown reportedly didn’t skip a beat while it was happening, and backed up the claim in a tweet to Kendrick Lamar. Lamar tweeted, “@XDannyXBrownX u really just got the head on stage stanny???” to which Brown replied, “and didn’t miss one bar bruh bruh.”
Here’s how it went down according to one of the concert goers:
“I was right behind the girl and saw everything it was scaring edit: Okay so this is how it all went down, I was near the front row and all night Danny had been going up to the crowd and having random girls touch his d*ck through his pants. Then this girl in front of me starts flashing him and he goes up to her and grabs her t*ts. Then all of a sudden gets up close pulls his shirt up a little and she start blowing him. Then I’m behind her and I start getting pushed against her by the crowd shifting. It’s horrible and I hope you guys will be donating to my future therapy sessions but also i came back with a story. He rapped the entire time during too.”

R. Kelly just pulled out … of his highly anticipated act aboard a cruise ship … saying it’s all because the company couldn’t cough up the cash they originally promised. If you didn’t know already … a company called Concerts Cruise LLC hired the singer to headline their “Love Letter” cruise … where he agreed to play two shows during a five-day trip in October, sailing from Miami to the Caribbean. But now Kelly is singing a different tune … he just axed his involvement with the shindig claiming the promoter (Concerts Cruise LLC) never actually paid him. A rep for the singer says, “R. Kelly had been looking forward to the cruise and was ready, willing and able to perform for fans. He is sorry for any disappointment but plans to see his fans very soon on a U.S. tour.”Concerts Cruise sent an email to customers informing them of the cancellation and saying they will “handle all applicable refunds at point of purchase.”
