Directed by Alan Del Rio Ortiz [Major Lazer, Danny Brown], it’s Fetty’s most dynamic, distinct, and definitive visual yet. Beginning with the squeal of an alarm clock, Fetty goes through a tripped-out day at his old alma mater Eastside High—which the classic film Lean On Me was based on. The song’s woozy vibe immediately intoxicates as he performs throughout the school’s halls.

It’s been another massive month for him. He was nominated for a whopping eleven categories and took home “Top New Artist” at the 2016 Billboard Music Awards, won “Best New Artist” at the iHeartRadio Awards, while he received a nomination for “Best Male Hip Hop Artist” at the 2016 BET Awards—airing Sunday June 26 at 8pm ET. In addition, he headlines the BET Experience concert alongside Usher, Bryson Tiller, Lil Wayne, 2 Chainz, Ty Dolla $ign, Katt Williams, Mike Epps, and The Roots.

Across the pond, he continues to expand and extend his rap reign. Fettymakes his inaugural trip to Europe this week to perform a sold-out show at Birmingham Institute on May 27th and a Radio 1 show in London on May 28th. The next night, he takes the stage at the iconic Hammersmith Apollo to perform another sold-out show. Right now, he also covers the latest issue of The Guardian’s G2 Magazine in the UK. He’s also set to perform on the main stage of both Reading and Leeds festivals this summer, as well as the We Love Green Festival in Paris on June 5th- this festival is the first of its kind, powered by completely renewable energy.

Recently, he lit up the mobile gaming space. In partnership with Moor Games and Creative Mobile, Fetty released his very first game, Fetty Wap: Nitro Nation Stories, at the App Store and Google Play. Starring Fetty and Monty, featuring real cars from BMW, Nissan, and Jaguar, and boasting a soundtrack of smashes, the game drops players right into the world of fast and furious street racing. Users compete for game currency that unlocks signed items, tickets to shows, and so much more.

Lookout for another blockbuster from Fetty Wap in 2016.

He Was A Controlling Partner : Johnny Depp’s Ex-Girlfriend, Ellen Barkin Testifies

Published

on

Ellen Barkin, who dated Johnny Depp in the 1990s, testified that while the two were dating, Depp tried to constantly monitor her.

Depp is suing his ex-wife, Amber Heard, for $50 million after she wrote an op-ed in the Washington Post in 2018 alleging domestic violence. Depp was not named in the article, but his lawyers claim she was referring to him indirectly, and it has harmed his career ever since.

Heard, 35, testified earlier in the trial, describing numerous instances of physical and emotional abuse by Depp, all of which Depp has denied, claiming he was the victim.

“I had a scratch on my back once that got him very, very angry because he insisted it came from me having sex with a person who wasn’t him,” Barkin, now 68, said in the video.

Barkin said Thursday that the “Pirates of the Caribbean” actor was often using drugs and/or drinking alcohol while they were together, saying it affected their relationship allegations which Heard made in the trial too.

Barkin also claimed that Depp threw a wine bottle at her while they were filming “Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas.” She claimed Depp threw the bottle while fighting with friends in a hotel room.

Barkin claims that her relationship with Depp lasted three to five months and was more sexual than romantic.
