Sivan's Semi Hard News Report: Friday

Posted: Updated:

When you ask Usher to curate your music playlist for a fireworks show… get ready for a lot of Usher. For the first time ever, Macy's chose (paid) a musical artist to put together a playlist for their fireworks show.  Turns out Usher is a big fan of Usher. He put four of his own songs for the show. Fans took to Twitter to complain. We'd expect this kind of thing from Kanye, but Usher? OMG.

50Cent wants you to know he's not in jail. To prove it- he posted a series of photos of himself in various rooms of his home writing "I'm not in jail, I'm in my living room." Perhaps this was Fitty's way of answering to rumors he had been arrested for kicking his baby mama during an argument last month. On Monday the rapper was charged with domestic violence and vandalism but his lawyer says 50 ain't guilty.

Justin Timberlake's new video is NSFW and creating quite a stir on the Internet. His new single "Tunnel Vision" shows Timberlake crooning over images of naked women. It was pulled from Youtube but made it's way back online on VeVo. Take THAT Robin Thicke!

Mick Jagger's hair is helping others. One of his old flames has auctioned off a clump of the rocker's hair for $6,000. Chrissy Shrimpton dated Mick long before he was a rock star and managed to save an envelope of his hair all these years. She auctioned it off to raise money for Changing Faces, a charity that helps disfigured people. Too bad more of Mick's girlfriends didn't hold onto his toenail clippings or used dental floss- his dead cells could make the world a better place!
