AHH Stray News: Migos and Lil Uzi #1, Scott Storch Annulling Marriage, Game In Criminal Court
Rappers Migos have taken over the top of the U.S. singles chart a day after Golden Globe winner Donald Glover called the band's new song the "best ever.” Glover, aka Childish Gambino, namechecked the track during his acceptance speech at the Globes on Sunday night (January 8). Migos guest-starred on his hit TV series “Atlanta,” which picked up two awards at the ceremony. Glover said, "I really wanna thank the Migos, not for being in the show, but for making 'Bad and Boujee'... That's the best song ever." Rae Sremmurd's “Black Beatles” rises a spot to two on the new chart, while another former number one, The Chainsmokers' “Closer,” is also up to three. The Weeknd's “Starboy” and Bruno Mars' “24K Magic” round out the new top five.
Music mogul Scott Storch has filed papers to annul his 24-hour 2011 marriage. The producer exchanged vows with Christina Gray in June, 2011 but the couple separated the next day and he insists he has no relationship with his bride. In documents obtained by TMZ, Storch admits he and Christina were drunk when they tied the knot, and were "not of sound mind.”
Rapper The Game's assault trial has been delayed until next month (Feb17). The “Dreams” hitmaker was accused of threatening and assaulting off-duty police officer Onyebuchi Awaji in an altercation during a pick-up basketball game at Hollywood High School in California in 2015. The Game, real name Jayceon Taylor, claimed defense, but he was ordered to stand trial on a felony charge of making criminal threats and a misdemeanor assault and battery count in December, 2015. He pleaded not guilty, but is facing up to three years in prison if convicted. On Monday (January 9), the rapper was in court for a hearing, but the trial was postponed.
