Recently it seems Justin Bieber can’t catch a break. After an incident throwing up on stage, he is now the the victim of theft. His camera and laptop were stolen on Tuesday and he went to Twitter to express how upset he was.

Lady Gaga also threw up on stage this week for a total of three times. In order to not disappoint her fans in Barcelona, Spain, Gaga performed with the flu and became sick onstage. She made light of it by posting a fan video of the incident.

Some other artists express their feelings by rapping about what happens in their lives. Rick Ross featured a rap about his BET Music Awards fight with rapper Young Jeezy on a mixtape.

There is some drama between new American idol hosts Nicki Minaj and Mariah Carey. After footage of Minaj yelling at Carey during filming, singer Stevie Nicks commented that she would have strangled Minaj right there. Nicks later apologized for how she worded her statement.

Carrie Underwood is up for some awards. She has been nominated for Country Music Awards as well as American Music Awards. However Rihanna and Nicki Minaj received the most nominations for AMA’s this year. You can catch them Nov 18th on ABC.

For everyone that wasn’t able to make the live performance themselves, Jay Z will release an EP, titled Live in Brooklyn, from his recent concert at the Barclays Center.
